Hon Mr Hensley said that he understood the question relative to which he had given notice, would be answered without any further motion, he would now ask for any instructions which might have been given the delegates to the late Conference on the subject of Colonial Confederation.
Hon Colonial Secretary replied, and said that the delegates who attended the Conference held at Charlottetown last Autumn, were appointed in pursuance to the Resolution of this House passed last Session, and that those gentlemen were the same, with the addition of two to their number, who attended the Quebec Conference. He then produced and read a copy of a letter which had been forwarded to each of the delegates, notifying them of their appointment. He (the Col Secretary.) was not aware that any other instructions were given to the delegates.
