Notes: Haynes was member for Wellington, Richards for Mudgee. Haynes petitioned to overturn the result. The Committee found against him on charges of treating and bribing but did find irregularities in the conduct of the election at Mudgee Primary School, but not severe enough to justify overturning the result.
