THE SEAT OF GOVERNMENT.
There was a rumour about town yesterday, that a Melbourne paper bad been received in which it was stated that the Governors of i Australia had refused to appoint a Commission in this matter. "Wo had some difficulty in tracing the rumour to its source, and then found that it was only the recommendation of a writer in the Argus that their Excellencies should decline to comply with the Assembly's request. That their Excellencies may decline is possible, — the Auckland folk say that it is probable ; nay, that so far as Governor Browne is concerned it is certain. Whether the three Governors will or will not accept in good faith tha compliment which the Assembly paid them, we presume we shall not know before another month or six weeks ; but at present any report of their intentions may be safely put down as premature.
