How has it happened that the colony of Victoria ? occupying a central position with regard to the other Australian colonies, and possessing a fine soil, a genial climate, and greater mineral wealth than any other part of the globe ? has caused disappointment and ruin to thousands of emigrants, and even became at one time the scene of bloodshed and civil war ? This is the question which I shall this evening attempt to answer: not so much from statistical details as from my own observations made on the spot.
