HANSARD PICKINGS.

" A CURSE TO THE COUNTBV."

No, sir, not for the sheep farmers. The sheep farmers do not want the railway. They are opposed to it, and have done all they can against the Bill. The loan and agency companies would go to any length to prevent the line from being made. Those companies are a curse to the country. Unborn children now in their mothers womb* will one day curse them for having pre* vented this railway from being made in the past.—Mr Pyke. . THE PUBLIC CREDIT. The Government have given a pledge that they will not go on the London market for three years; and all we have to do in order absolutely to rehabilitate the credit of the colony in foreign markets, and in order to give New Zealand that name which she onee possessed and to which her resources entitle her, is to hold the Government to that {tledge. If it goes forth to the world that ike the drunkard who is unable to abstain, and who must necessarily return to his potations in spite of any pledges, we are unable to refrain from borrowing—that if we cannot borrow abroad we must do it at home, we must pursue the pernicious system we have pursued for the past fifteen years—if we cannot show to the world that we are prepared to follow economy, not only in the letter but in the spirit, then, I take it, it will be a bad day for New Zealand.—Mr Stuart-Menteath.
