IN our reviev of thie E?stimates for the presentyear, .passed by the ol1 Legisla tive Council, we .trongly .objected-to the novel and unconstitutional principle in tiroduced;-that of anticipating an in creased'revenue for the coming.year, and framning the Estimated Expenditiure upon a piresumned rise-and thliat as not liable to any of the ordinary contingencies. Fortunateiy that presumption has proved true, but: nevertheless we are siurprized at findiing that, not content wtth the iealiza tion of. their presumption, the Coloniial. Cabinet have continued the objectionable practice,. and that a considerable ihnciease of.expenditure is again proposed, upon the assiumption of a still further rise upon the previously assumed excess-that is an excess upon an excess;. The estimated Revenue for 167, cal culated at £82045 produced 90,439 16s. 3d., whilst the estimated Revenue for 1869, based upon these increased receipts is estimated at £96,276., We. e.cannot ente# fully into comparativ- det...
