THE POLITICAL SITUATION.

FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.

Wellington, Oct. 30. Mr Wright got the Ashburton Waterworks Bill through committee between 12.30 and 1 this morning, with a few very slight and unimportant alterations. The Licensing Bill passed through its second reading last evening without division, after about 3 hours debate. The most violent opposition came from Mr Andrews, but he had to admit to Mr Saunders that he had not even read the provisions he objected to.

Two or three orders of the day were got through before the House rose at 1.10 this morning. The House evidently means business now with the exception of Sir George Grey himself, who would of course like to still be the centre of attention for the House.
