NEW SOUTH WALES POLITICS. SYDNEY, September 27, (Received September 27,1889, at 12.45 p.m.)
The passage of the Land Bill is jeopardised in consequence of the action of the Legislative Council in making several amendments, which are of a selfish class spirit. The Assembly sat all night considering these amendments, and, rather than sacrifice the measure, agreed to most of them. During the debate several members displayed great indignation at the Council's action.
The prorogation will probably take place to-morrow.
