Reaction with Hg2+(mercury) is nothing but addition of water(hydration)

but this is of special type and it avoids rearrangement

Hg2+ adds across double bond to give a mercurinium ion intermediate like this   

                                                                                                                   this is mercurinium ion with hg2+ attacking and breaking only pi bond

now H+ and OH- add according to markowinkoff's rule widout any rearrangement giving alcohol.

ethene will give ethyl alcohol C2H5OH
