TESTIMONIAL TO THE HON. J. ROBERTSON. To the Editor of the Ertuir.g News. Sir, — I have long been expecting to see somo movement emanating in Sydney, as our chief city, in favour of a substantial recognition of the labours and services rendered to this country by our late Premier, Mr. Robertson. I am satisfied the result of the late appeal to the country warrants the assumption that a most liberal response would bo made, and many gladly embrace the pleasurable opportunity thus afforded them, by liberally contri buting to what they would feel so worthy an object. This matter wants careful consideration and perfect arrangement to make it a proud acceptance upon the part of the champion of our Land Bill. This, to be a thorough success, will require energetic action uuon the part of all true friends of the much-abused but patriotic chief, John Bobertson. My reasons are, it is becoming a felt duty within us, requiring a discharge. Again, it is calculated to incite men to healthy action i...
