THE POLITICAL SITUATION.
[by telegraph.] FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. Wellington, Oct. 24. Sir George Grey, Mr Lundon, and a ew other virtuous members of the House having expressed their views as to the conduct of Messrs Wood, Swanson, Hurst, and Colbeck, Mr Wood was provoked into a retort, in which ho showed that whilst nothing whatever had been offered to him by the Government, Sir George Grey had offered him the office of Colonial Treasurer, and Mr Macau drew had offered him the position of Premier. Supply was granted this morning, and the Opposition declined to take any steps towards a vote of censure.
Wellington, Oct. 25. Mr Richardson is seated for Christchurch, instead of Sir George Grey. The Grcyites have served Mr Colbeck with a writ for £I,OOO, for sitting in the House while having some contract with the Government, which they had told him did not affect his seat at all when he was supposed to vote with them. The railing against the Auckland members last night was someething worthy of Billingsgate.
