if the wislics of the nmjoritv of the voters are

Mr Flower may let the peopl- know to-morrow.
whether he if in (BTOC of ccrruption at tlie polla
or not, but it will piehabty be n<xt week before
he will make known the deeismti he lni6 reached.
Had all the objeefions to the Far-iuhar bill
been made hv Pepuhlicans, the liovernor might
t'ink it a matter of party polie.y lo >isru the
