LONDON, November 5, (Received November 6, 18S9, at 12.30 p.m.)

Sir Henry Parkes's proposal of a federation scheme is attracting a pood deal of attention. The 'St. James's Gazette'_ holds that nothing has been shown to explain why Sir Henry Parkes favors the adoption of the federal system of union. The ' Pall Mall Gazette' considers that Sir Henry Parkes has brought the federation of the Ifimpire within the range of practical politics. The 'Globe' fears that tho dissension existing in the Colonies will prove a fatal obstacle to the uniform 1 adoption of the proposal, (Recolved November 0, 1880, at 1.25 p.m.) ' The Times' says that Australian evolu' tion in a federal direction shows the future destiny of Australia, and indicates by history and analogy the normal tendency of events. The difference between Sir Henry Parkes, Premier of New South Wales, and Mr D. Gillies, Premier of Victoria, is not a vital one if an effective desire for unity exists; 'The Times' considers the Federal Council Act a comparative f&ilui-e, and that tho selection of a capital adjustment .of a federal tariff offers special difficulties. Notwithstanding this, ' The Times' thinks Sir Henry Parkes is entitled to respect if he pronounces that the time is ripe for federation, and his methods are feasible.
