NEW SOUTH WALES. Sydkey, Tuesday. Tho Federal Convention mot nguln to-day. Mr. Barton, in tho course of Borne remarks, said it seemed scarcely worthy of tho position they occupied for members to talk of running away home because their ideas wero not accepted.

Mr. Wrixou said thek would be covered with discredit if they, went back without somo definite programme. Sir George GrcyBaitl ,.- it appeared ns if the delegates had not ^ sufficient confidence in eacli other. Ho would vote to give tho Senate all powers exercised b'y House of Representatives, co thnt both houses would be democratic and popular institutions.
