Amongst other examples to be adduced in any debate in the Ho. C. in favor of Union it may be mentioned that rivalry or ill feeling of some sort or other prevented an united arrangement being made by the Colonies for subsidizing one line of Steamers to San Francisco. The result of their disagreement was that they each have had a lineā€”an expense to both. Unite these Colonies & such difficulties are got over.
