On Saturday evening, at Babeli Chapel, Cwmbwrla, Swansea, a largeand enthusiastic meeting of the supporters of Mr. John Powell for the Swansea Higher and Lower Division of Glamorganshire was held.

Both the candidates and his supporters were given a cordial reception. Sir Hussey Vivian, in the course of his address, referred to the many qualifications possessed by Mr. Powell to represent this district on the County Council. Mr. Powell was hhebest of the three candidates, and was entirely in touch with the working-men of the constituency, being a large employer of labour. Dealing with the candidature of Mr. Daniel, the hon. baronet asked what chance had he of being returned for the division. He advised Mr. Daniel and Mr. Richards to retire from the contest, and allow Mr. Powell to be |retumed unopposed. He did not think it right that the county should be put to the expense of a contested election by persons when there was really no chance of their being returned. (Cheers.) He thought that in the interests of the ratepayers he would make that appeal, and he might also extend it to another division, not far off—(augbter)—though in that case he might not be quite so disinterested an appellant, but if the returns which he bad in his pocket could be relied upon—and he believed they could-(hear, hear)-there were equally good grounds for his appeal.—Addresses were afterwards delivered by Mr. John Powell, "Mabon," Mr. Daniel Pugh, Mr. l. L. Owen, &c., and a vote of confidence in Mr. Powell was carried nem. con. and with the greatest enthusiasm. A vote of thanks was accorded the Chairman, and the seating broke up by Mabon" singing "John Powell, Waunarlwyd, yw'r dyn," the audience joining in the chorus. HR, LLEWELTN'S CANDIDATURE.
