FEDERAL DEFENCE. SYDNEY, October 19, (Received October 19,1889, at 1 p.m.)

Premier Parkes declines to recognise the Federal Council as a fitting place to dieenss General Edwards's report on colonial defence.


Some excitement was created in the suburb of Fitzroy by the discovery of an alleged case of Asiatic cholera. An Indian from Singapore died suddenly, and one doctor declared it to be a case of true cholera, but the Government health officer was of opinion that the disease was dysentery, and the steamer's doctor declared it to be merely debility. The corpse was buried on the latter's certificate, but by way of precaution the steamer has been quarantined.


General Edwards : s report on the local forces discloses an unsatisfactory state of things. He considers that little reliance can be placed on the existing means of defence, and that if an enemy landed within a day's march from the capital there would be nothing to prevent its capture.
