Ten years ago, last Saturday morning, and on a Sunday morning, the collision took place between the Queen’s troops and the diggers in the Eureka Stockade. Last week the leader of that band of diggers was re-elected to an office of honor and emolument under the Crown, in a Parliament which controls our own affairs. The two facts present a contrast of a pleasant kind, for the fact which is now with us as an actual thing, potential for good, marks for us a wide stride in progress. It is not for us to say how much or how little connection exists between the two facts in the order of cause and effect.[1]
