Sir Hercules is not at all satisfied with this result.
He would like to see a minimum of 150 miles a
year constructed - fifty a year each for the north,
south, and west, at which rate we would reach the
Victorian border in less than two years, and the
Darling at Bourke in about six years. His Ex-

the matter of the most vital importance to the
Wales is the rapid completion of the
through lines of railway communication; and

certain sticklers for constitutional propriety, to

Governor, at the Bathurst opening, to the

curtail his usefulness, and to convert
him into a mere pageant. The very fact

it were, a consenting party to them, and en-

amount of floating unsettled views, which may
be directed to right objects by one whose posi-

that the masses of the people, instead of suspect-
ing or resenting the outspoken sentiments of a
turn them over in their minds, even though they
might not at once accept them. I use advisedly
the expression ' on great questions,' because
it is only the conviction that he may be the
means of doing substantial good which
should induce a Governor to enter the arena
of public discussion. The suitableness of
the occasion, and the suitableness of the
topics which he thinks fit to speak on, are
matters for his judgment, and he must be pre-

the blame. I believe that a Governor, if he be
fit for the discharge of the trust confided to him,
may on many occasions accept that responsi-
bility, and be rewarded for doing so by the con-
fidence and esteem of the community. By re
ducing himself to the position of a nonentity he
will certainly acquire neither the one nor the
other." And Sir Hercules is right, as witness
