administration, that the passage I have referred to alludes. The general condition of the colony of New South Wales, and the absolute necessity for some immediate and fundamental change in the whole constitution and management of the transportation system, are matters on which there can be no room for party feelings, and in which Whig, Tory, and Radical must all agree. In one of his zealous declamations in favour of universal suffrage, the late Mr. Cobbett, the most conspicuous of the Radicals of his day, maintained that every man in England, who had not been convicted of a crime, should have a vote." This is the principle of the only exception for which the Whigs and Tories of New South Wales almost unanimously plead.
