MEETING IN SUPPORT OF MR D DAYIES. A meeting in support of the candidature of Mr D. Davies as member for this county was announced to be held at the Old Assembly Room on Thursday even. ing. The room soon became densely packed after the opening of the doors, and it was evident that a number of young fellows were present with the intention of disturbing the proceedings. Sinering and shouting, accompanied with cheers for Gladstone," and counter cheers for "David Davies," &c., were fre- quent.âMr Stephen Evans, of London, presided, and obtained a tolerably fair hearing, Mr Griffith Jones having previously stated that this was a meeting of Mr Davies's supporters and for business. The Chair- man alluded to Mr Davies's long connection with the county and the great good which he had done for the college and other institutions, and expressed his firm conviction that he would be again returned by a trumphant majority, a remark which drew forth loud cheers and counter cheers. Mr Davies, Cwrtmawr, a Liberal, proposed that this meeting forms itself into a committee to secure Mr D. Davies's return, with power to add to its number, and we pledge ourselves to do everything in our power to secure his return" (cheers and hisses). Mr Griffith Jones se- conded the proposition. Mr H. Bonsall attempted to speak in support, but was met with a perfect storm of shouting, &c., and ended his remarks by the ex- pressionâ"as sure as I stand here Mr Davies will win the contest." The motion was put to the meet- ing, and the show of hands of voters was largely in its favour. Mr Griffith Jones then proceeded to take the names of those who were willing to act on the committee, when Mr Gibson suddenly entered the room, iand a scene of indescribable confusion took place-shouting, hooting, and yelling, and Mr Gibson gesticulating in analmost frantic manner. At length the Chairman declared the meeting at an end, and the company separated, the Radicals crowding round Mr Gibson until he reached the Club-room in Great Darkgate-street, where, we understand, he harangued them in that fashion so peculiarly his own. ° them in that fashion so peculiarly his own. °
