Yes, that's the marriage.

1878-79 N.S.W Electoral Roll - The Lachlan
JOHNSTONE David, Grenfell, residence
JOHNSTONE John, Grenfell, residence


It's said David didn't have a brother John. There is no brother John in the 1861 census. Grenfell certainly fits but if that is not David then we have two of them in Grenfell and I find that hard to believe.
