Tooth and Davenport of the land \rhich die)' hold, and that only on the ground of non-fulfilment of conditions, without imputing to them any fraud whatever in obtaining it, so as to distinguish their case from that of other selectors. They obtained a verdict against them on tbe ground that failure to perform conditions ipso facto causes the land to revert to the Crom-n, and the ruling of the Judge has been upheld by the FnU Court. And what is the consequence? There is scarcely to be found a landholder, big or little, who has been able to perform t...
