IT may perhaps be regarded as a waste of time in the face of the solid and servile majority led by the present Government to discuss the wisdom, policy, or propriety of the, resolution introduced by Mr Berry, affirming that the money votes of the Assembly ought to become available irrespective of the sanction or concurrence of the other Chamber, So far as the Asseom bly are concerned, the passage of that resolution is no doubt a foregone con clusion whatever the Opposition may say or do, although it cannot become practically operative unless the Governor consents to be guided by the decision of the House; arid this it is very un likely he will dro unless justified by the favorable opinion of his superiors in Downing Street. That he will ever obtain this seems in the highest degree impossible, and therefore for any actual good effected by carrying the resolution it might as well nev...
