I Premier Seddon, who was entertained at a Wellington social last night, spoke stronglv of the feeling of affection shewn at Home for the colonies, and if ever tuey heard any talk of separation from the Mother Country let them efface it. He described the scent: at the Jubilee and at Spithead, and praised the contingent They might be proud-of them, tuey were as good as tho best who marched by the Queen on that day at the Aldorshot review, and, in fact, with all he had seen the people of New Zealand in general compared favorably. He very heartily thanked those who had been at the trouble of getting up that entertainment to welcome htm, and especially he thought it due to acknowledge the action of Mayor Bell,_who, though politically opposed to him, had declined to allow party considerations to enter into the question.
