Sir George Grey.- —Sir George Grey related his grievances to the Thames electors on Saturday. Regarding his unseating for Christchurch ho said : —They (the Thames electors) were good enough to return him their representative, but to gain another seat and to promote their interest he consented to stand for Christchurch. If he had been the sitting member for Christchurch he would not have done less for their welfare. The dispute which arose and the determination which was come to, to unseat him for that place, was not justly arrived at. It was directly contrary to the laws of England, and a cruel thing to the electors of Christchurch, to have one forced upon thorn whom they had rejected. It was a matter in which all electors were interested, and one to which he would return next session. It had been said he intended to leave New Zealand, but he had no intention of doing so until he saw democratic institutions established and in full force.
