We have furnished our readers with a full report of the speeches delivered at the Hustings last friday by Messrs« FnANCts Smith and William Boys, as also those made by their proposers and seconders ; and we would urge every Elector, as an act of justice and fair play, to give them a candid and an attentive perusal. The topics touched upon are of vital moment ; nor have they lost any of their import- ance by our familiarity with them. The only idea which can lay claim to origin- ality belong» to ' Mr. Boys : whether it be one which the Colony will act upon is a question to be solved to-morrow-we allude to that gentleman's anxiety tu in- troduce a property tax " although taxa- tion may not be required," and to expend it on improvements.

VICTORIA.

THE MERCURY. $ul)lfs!jtö fHaníarí, KSeontólmn * jFrtoag WEDNESDAY MORNING. MAY. Gin, 1857. The result of the polling yesterday has not surprised us to the extent that it has many; for wc had, in some measure, . f .* i prepared ourse Ives for it. Not that we anticipated so large a majority for Mr. Boys, for that we did not : but many circumstances have occurred lately we'll calculated to lead to this result. The scheme proposed by Mr. Gregson was in- tended to produce a strong feeling in favour of the lato Ministry; and with those who were unable to see through its utter fallacy, it accomplished its purpose": the defeat of the Cabinet by those with whom Mr. Smith has associated himself ; and the rejection of the advice to dissolve the House of Assembly tendered by Mr. Gregson, and petitioned for by a large number of the Citizens, were circumstan- ces not at all calculated to conciliate the' favour of those who had pinned their faith 'to that gentleman's seductive schemes.
