ENGLAND AND HER COLONIES. Under the presidency of Sir Charles Henry Mills, M.P., a numerously attended meeting was held at the City Terminus Hotel on Tuesday to consider the ad vantage of a more intimate relationship with our colonies. The chairman, in opening the proceedings, said tiat the meeting had been called in response to the desires of a large number of gentlemen representing influential firms in that great city, who considered that a closer connection both politically and commercially between this country and her colonies was desirable. It was impossible to find a more favourable time for forwarding this move- ment, because no fewer than four of our Australian colonies and Canada had offered their assistance in the military operations which were being carried on in the Soudan-not only offering the assistance of their troops, but also, as in the case of New South Wales, liberally undertaking to defray the cost of the expedition, thereby giving ample proof, if proof were necessary, of their desire to participate in the in- terests and dangers of England. Lord Dunraven spoke of the advantages of a close union between the mother-oountry and the colonies. He urged the desirability of a Federal Council to manage colonial affairs, and that there should be a federal fund created by taxing foreign manufactured goods im- ported into British ports for that purpose. Resolutions in accordance with the objects of the meeting were eubsequently passed.
