Wednesday. ; The Legislative Assembly met at half-past 3 o'clock. Mr. Martin, by whom the debate on the Address was adjourned on the .previous evening, spoke at great length in support of the amendments. In his preliminary observations, he stated that late events had convinced him some modification of the electoral svstem was called for. He was nrenared to increase tho renre sentation of the metropolis and other populous constituencies, while lie should not be unwilling to reduce the present political preponderance of such districts as West Camden, the Lachlun, and the Mumimbidgee. He adverted to the course he bad pursued when the Constitution Bill was before the late Council, on which occasion he strongly advocated an elective Upper House, and asked whether the exp riment of the nominee prin jiple now tried did not prove tlie soundness of tho views he lm,d always maintained on that question.
