The County of Cheviot. — We copy from the Lyttelton Times of January 11, the following account ol the election of a member of the House of Eepreaentatives for the county of Cheviot, a district lying between the provinces of Nelson and Canterbury : — " Our readers may, like ourselves, have known that, some time in December, an election was to take place at Mount Grey, of a fit and proper person to serve aa member of the House of Representatives in the Parliament of New Zealand for the County of Cheviot. Some persons may, like ourselves, huve been aware that Mr. Edward Jollie proposed to offer himself as a candidate for the vacant seat; and they may havtjoined U3 in the opinion that as no opposition was likely to be offered to Mr. Jollie, that gentleman was entering upon a course where success wa3 not doubtful. Still, with all moral certainty of the result, tinpublic has yet had no direct evidence that Mr. Jollie was on a certain day, with all due form, and in manner by law appointed, elected to fill the responsible post of M.G-.A. for Cheviot. It givea us, therefore, great satisfaction to announce, on the indubitable authority of a great majority of the persons present ai the nomination, we mean the Returning Officer and the proposer, that Mr. Edwnfd Jollie was, on a certain day— we forget which— duly elected to serve a^ representative of the district of Cheviot."
