WISER THAN HIS MASTERS.

WISER THAN HIS MASTERS. Sir. H. BLAKE declines the honour of being Governor of Queensland. On his part this is a most judicious step. It was like her Majesty's present advisers to recommend the appointment of an obnoxious man. They seem to have made this appointment with no view but to give another kick to Ireland. They like to insult Ireland, and likewise to make an exhibition of their arrogance in the more remote colonies. They make big mouthfuls about federation and so on, but it they were to be 'allowed their own way in the direction of Colonial affairs, every considerable dependency we have would become a second Ireland, and the war of independence which disgraced the reign of that infatuated Tory, GEORGE HI., would be repeated again and again until the QUEEN'S dominion would be limited to a shred of the British Isles, Whenever it became known that the appointment was obnoxious to the authorities and to the popular representatives at Queensland, it should have been cancelled. Such offices should never be filled arbitrarily. There should always be very con. siderable deference paid even to the likes and the dislikes of those who will have to act as colleagues of the person elected to the chief office in a colony. No doubt we shall hear something about the cowardly knuckling down to Irish discontent, but we are glad that better counsels have prevailed. The Government may find an opening for Sir H. BLAKE somewhere in Ulster. His real admirers will be found in largest number there. His appointment anywhere else may be regarded as a bold defiance of the com- monest rules of prudence.
