With the exceptiyn of an ameteur bund of music parading the streets, preceded by a goodly number of the inhabitants oi the town there was a total absence of excitement, it being well known that thore would be no opposition to the return of Colonel-Lloyd Vaughan Watkins, Lord-Lieutenant of the county, who had represented the borough previous to Mr. Morgan's re- turn"at the General Election in July, 1853. The proceedings comn eiced at 12 o'clock, by the Sown Clerk reading the Writ, h3 Bribery Act, &c,, after v kich M. Jones, Esq., Mayor, and the returning officers, briskly eddressed the assemblage, which nearly fillad the Hall requesting a fair and impartial hearing for all who might wish to address them, and stating that his confidence in their peaceable conduct, was based on his experience of the character of his fellow townsmen. He then called upon any elector having a candidate to propose. J. Parry De Winton, Esq., of Maesderwen, then proposed Colonel Watkins. J. Prosser Sneed, Esq., banker, briefly seconded the nomi- nation of Colonel Watkins. The Mayor having inquired if any elector had some other candidate to propose, and no burgess having responded, declared Col. Lloyd Vaughan Watking to be duly elected. Colonel Watkins rose to return thanks. He expressed his regret at the untimely death of the late member, and spoke at some length on leading political topics. On the motion of Colonel Watkins, seconded by Mr. John Jones, thanks were voted to the Mayor, who acknowledged the compliment. The gallant colonel, who was suffering from a severe attack of gout, then returned to Penoir, the ceremony of I chairing having been dispensed with. Several of the member's friends dined together at the Bear and Star Inns, but the town was as quiet as usual by an early hour.
