SOLDIERS AT TREDEGAR. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NlIWA. SIK,âWe, the leaders of the Liberal party oil the town of Tredegar, very much regret that ouif magistrates should hä ve thought fit to order and! bring a detachment of soldiers to this place with a view ostensibly to the preservation of peace on the day of the county election, and beg- to protest in the strongest possible munnerazainst the steps thus clandestinely taken, inasmuch as we are of opinion that the military are not required, that their arrival is calculated to stir up the worst passions in the breasts of the people, and to provoke a dis- turbance, andthattheirquarteringhere williuvolve the county in needless expense. As Liberals, we are characterised by a love for peace. and regard the action of our magistrates as a terrible reflec- tion upon the townspeople generally; as it be- speaks an utter want of confidence in the peace- able disposition of the inhabitants. Furthermore. we venture to assert that Tory prejudice is at the root and is the cause of all this: and that our magistrates have for once anyhow erred greatly in thus using their authority. All things lawful are not expedient. Their conduct, too, in this matter is quite in keeping with the "spirited foreign policy of the Government. A policy of carnage and bloodshed which, with all their might, they are bolstering up. Our last words are, Liberals, voters and non- voters, be men. Do not stooi) to anything that is wrong. We know that be as peaceable as you may, you will not have any credit for it with the Tories now the soldiers are here. Nevertheless, quit yourselves like men. Let us come out of this contest with clean hands and unsullied honour, and God and our own conscience-, will amply re- ward us.
