Melbourne, March 28.

The proceedings at the polling-booth to-day were of an orderly character. In several electorates the polling was heavy from an early hour in the morning, but

in several instances it was light until near the hour of closing, when the electors flocked in numbers. At the declaration of results in a few instances there was a little confusion, bat there were no disturbances of a serious character. All Ministers were returned by large majorities, although closer con tests had been anticipated by many persons. At Port Melbourne and the eastern suburbs Mr Gillies, however, scored a majority of 691, and Mr. Derham of 455. Mr. Bent had a substantial majority, but loses bis lieutenants, Messrs. Gaunson and C. E. Jones. Mr. Vala was defeated in his old stronghold, Ballarat West. Mr. Langdon was re- jected at Korong, and Dr. Rose defeated at Melbourne North. There will be   several new men in the Assembly, includ- ing Mr. Trenwith, of the Trades Hall. The papers had the numbers posted in the front of the offices lit by the electric light. Collins-street was so jammed with people as almost to stop all vehicle traffic, trams having to creep at a snail's pace through the crowds. As the returns were posted up the numbers were received with cheers or disapprobation, but the crowd was good natured and quietly dispersed at midnight. As far as known fourteen candidates must forfeit their deposits and thirteen late members have lost their seats.     The following members are returned.   The letter M, or O. after the name signifies Ministerlalist or Oppositionist ; the word ' for' or ' against' signifies the views of the candidates in regard to the increase of the stock duties ; and an asterisk late members :— Ballarat East— *Mr. J-.
