THE ELECTIONS.

THE THAMES. The following are the complete returns for this district, the returns from Mercury Bay not having arrived when the Telegraph Office closed on Thursday evening : —

It will be seen by the telegram from our correspondent at C'oromande], last night, that fears arc entertained that Mr. Rowe's election is null and void, in consequence, as alluded to in the telegram, of a meeting being held at a public-house. Should the petition against Sir George Grey's election, made by Mr. Mackay, De sustained, and Mr. KoweV election prove to be illegal in consequence of the irregularity referred to, Sir J. Vogel and Mr. C. F. Mitchell would be the members elected for the Thames. Time will show how the several petitions and protests will be dealt with.

WAEKWORTH. On Thursday night Mr. John Sheehan addressed the electors of Rodney, to the number of about 80, in the Warkworth Hall, explaining the present political situation, and stating his views for the future good of the colony. A vote of thanks was passed to him at the close of his address. The attendance would have been larger but for tho short notice that was given of the meeting. Many who would have been there did not know of the event until afber the meeting was over. By the arrival of the 'Minnie Casey' from Mahurangi, wo learn that electioneering matters occupied a prominent position in the public mind in the Rodney district. Mr. Sheehan addressed a meeting at Warkworth on Wednesday evening, and received a vote of thanks. Mr. Shepherd was actively canvassing. At present Mr. Sheehan's prospects are regarded as the most favourable, though efforts have been made to induce Mr. J. M. Clark to enter the field, and it is believed that in the event of his consenting to do so Mr. Shepherd would l-etire in his favour, and give Mr. Clark all the support and aid in his power. A committee had been formed to communicate with Mr. Clark, but up to the present he has not seen his way to accept tho invitation.

Troup and James Crawford, jim., n^peais in another column, in which they withdraw from the contest for a seat in the Assembly for that district, in favour of Messrs. May and tlooilfellow.
