POST SESSIONAL SPEECHES.
[by telegraph.] Charleston, Jan. 20. Mr. J. 13. Fislier addressed the Buller electors at the Theatre Royal, Charleston, on Saturday evening. The meeting wan '.veil attended, and the reception cordial. Mr. Fislier said there was a Conservative and a Liberal element in Hew Zealand politics as much as in those of the old country, and that however much Government and their supporters deprecated the charge they were the Conservatives of the country. They had taken up the Liberal measures but only to stultify and defeat them. The Government idea was that such draughts of Liberalism as the country insisted upon had bettor bo administered through a Conservative filter. He did not regret the accession to power of the present Government ; the country required departmental government and inform, and the present Government were essentially men of detail. They had dealt boldly if not wisoty with finance and administration, and they were preferable to Sir George Grey and Lis surroundings. There was a remnant of the Liberal party still true to its principles, and ho hoped the utter routing they had suffered would enable them to form new and more effective combinations. Mr. Fisher received a unanimous vote of thanks and confidence.
