ISLAND OF THE PACIFIC
IS LOOKED ON IN THE COLONIES.
The "awakening to national life,"
as the aspirations towards the annex
. ation of the Islands of the Pacific
have been appropriately called, shows
no symptoms of abatement, although
the first excitement has to some ex
tent passed away
From mass meetings held in Mel
bourne to meetings of the Royal
Society in New South AVales, which
is organising exploriug expeditions ;
from popular pressure in South Aus
tralia, brought to bear on the hesi
tancy of that Government, to the
enterprise of journals which have
despatched independent expedi
tionary parties to the islands pro
posed to be annexed, there appears
in the neighbouring colonies a feel
ing prevailing every class of the com
munity which, lii'bt aroused by the
daring action of Queensland, has
been stimulated rather than damped
by the despatch of the secretary of
State for the Colonies declining, on
the part of the Imperial "Government,
to recognise the steps already taken
for the annexation of New Guinea.
In these circumstances of the wide
awakening of popular interests, the
best hopes may be entertained of
any formal and systematic steps now
taken by the several Governments
for united action, and we have no
doubt whatever that the proposed J
conference for the purpose ot con
sidering the questions of annexation
and confederation, towards which
Victoria, New South Wales, and
Queensland are at present taking
- steps, and to which even the Govern
ment of South Australia has ex
pressed its intention of sending a
delegate, will give form and force to
the universal sentiment, in such a
maimer as will eventually overcome
the reluctance of the Gladstone
Government to further extension of
the Empire. "
In this colony there has been less
overt demonstration, but the interest
awakened in the subject has been
quite as great, and feeling as univer
sally favourable as in the neighbour
ing colonies, if we arc to judge from
the expression of the public journals,
which, whatever their differences of
opinion on general politics, have
been, with scarcely an exception, in
support of action being promptly
taken in favour of either annexation,
or extending a protectorate over the
unoccupied or unclaimed islands of
the Pacific ; and we have the satis
foction of knowing that our Govern
ment and Parliament have been the
first to lay the solid basis of legisla
tion for any action which it may bo
requisite to take in extending control
over the islands of the Pacific. The
"Confederation and Annexation
Bill," which passed through com
mittee of the Legislative Council on
Thursday last, and has remaining
only the formal process of passing
only the formal process of passing
the third reading to be placed on the
statute book, docs not indeed con
template such during acts of annexa
tion as that which inaugurated the
grcsent movement of the colonies,
but it has the far higher advantage
of favouring spontaneous action on
the part of the cniefs or constituted
authorities in any island or group of
islands that may be desirous of
coming under British or colonial
rule, and provides the machinery by
which negotiations in that direction
may be conducted, and their results
1)0 submitted to the Colonial Legisla
ture, which would thereupon move
the Imperial Government on the
subject. The measure is the furthest
possible removed from filibustering,
and may in the present state of
public feeling appear too slow in its
operations to meet the case of any
suddenly discovered intention on the
part of a foreign power to annex
any islands of the Pacific. But it is
evident that, given sufllcicnt time,
the procedure contemplated will be
attended with far more satisfactory
results than the sudden annexation
of islands which may possibly not bo
matured for it, and it is an acknow
ledged fact that had such a measure
l)ccn in existence in the earlier days
of the colony , not only New Caledonia
but tho New llcbrides, and many
other groups of islands, would pro
bably at this hour have been in
peaceable connection with this
The same happy consensus of
spinion attaches to the recommend
ations of tho "Pacific Islands An
nexation Committee." . .
This report, which after considera
ble discussion was adopted by the
House, endorsed the action of the
Government in uniting with the other
colonies in- their action relative to
New Guinea and tho New Hebrides,
and approved the principal that it is
the duty of the British Government
to establish its rule over all unoc
cupied islands of the Pacific, and it
committed the Assembly of New
Zealand to bearing a fair share in
the expenses which the joint colonics
might incur in carrying out. the an
nexation of islands
We in New Zealand feel that we
have a special call to annex and in
corporate, and that New Zealand
seems destined to lie the queen of
the isles of the Pacific; and the am
bition is entertained without any
jealousy or rivalry with the sister
colonies, a feeling which is abso
lutely non-existent among the colo
nics at the present time, and most of
all in respect of the present move
ment for the extension of British
rule in the Pacific. We feel and all
the colonics feel that annexation or
incorporation by any one British
colony is incorporation by them
It is not too much to s'l' that the
colonies arc determined that New
Guinea and the other islands, so far
as it is not prevented by treaty ob
ligations, must bo incorporated in
the Australasian system. New Zea
