AS OTHERS SEE US. SYDNEY, September 24. The * Sydney Morning Herald ’ has an article this morning reviewing the work done in the last session of the New Zealand Parliament. It considers that the compromise suggested by the Ministry with respect to the question of representation was a fair one, and the city members would have acted wisely in accepting it instead of founding charges of partiality against the Government, It goes on to say that the outcome of the conflict was to render the position of the Government more secure, though, strange to say, their command of the House was not made one whit firmer. Summing up, the ‘ Herald ’ says :—“ While the Government weathered the session there were unmistakeable warnings that unless they are prepared to essentially modify the Property Tax or submit to a method of increasing the revenue more in harmony with public sentiment they will bo left in the cold at the next general election,” This remit, the ‘ Herald ’ thinks, would be regretted, considering that Sir H. A. Atkinson has done so much to restore the credit of the colony.
LATE EASTERN NEWS. THURSDAY ISLAND, September 24. Eastern news says that the recent fight between the Dutch and Achencso was indecisive. The former evacuated a fort that had been taken at heavy loss. The Aohinese are preparing to make another attack on the Dutch. A semi-official Japanese paper says many of the senators oppose the employment of foreigners in judicial positions, and also the publication of the civil codes in English for the benefit of aliens.
