FEDERAL MATTERS. There has been very littlo of an ex citing nature transpiring in the Federal Housn of Representatives during the past week. The excitement seemg to lave died out since the takin' of the division on the censure motion, and the proceneings have been for the most part dull and uninteresting. Bring cup week, the thoughts of lion, mem bers were, to a great extent, taken off political matters, There was plenty of 'horse talk' in the lobbies, and for the timn the tariff was partly forgotten. The attendance of members has also been small notwithstanding tho fact that there was Buoh an important mattRr as the Kunaka Bill undnr con sideration. This may, however, have been due to the fuct of there being such a large majority in favor of the meas ure. Ita passage was looked upon as u fcegono conclusion, and tho opposition of a few Queensland membprs was not regarded as anything serious — not serious enough nt anyrate to compel the regular attendance of a full House.
