ROTTEN EGGS AND THE ADDRESS TO SIR WATKIN. SIR,-It seems that the conservatives are determined to make as much capital out of the rotten eggs affair at Bala, as they possibly can. This shows how very weak their cause is, and how short of material for accusation they are. The liberals, as a great party, do not want to justify the attack upon the baronet; but why make so much noise about a thing comparatively insignificant, and pass over the great injustice exercised on defenceless ten- ants on the other side ? Besides whatever discredit may attach to rotten eggs, it belongs quite as much to the con- servatives as to the liberals. In reality it was the tories who began that kind of disturbance by throwing their stinking missiles into the midst of the crowd from the windows of the hotel. One of the policemen on duty told me himself that it was he that put an end to it, by advis- ing the landlord to prevent such an attack on the crowd, for fear that his windows would be smashed. Everyone in the county knows very well how matters stand but to strangers the representations of the tories may appear very plausible. It was a happy idea to the originator of it to get all the tenants at Llanuwchllyn to signify their disapprobation of the treatment which Sir Watkin got at Bala by affixing their names t» a document got up ready for the purpose. But all who are acquainted with the circumstances will take the document with its signatures for what it is worth, for which would be the greater crime to withhold their vote from the tory candi- date or their signature from the tory document? We cannot, perhaps, decide upon the magnitude of such crimes, and therefore it would be vain to try to weigh the one against the other. It is notorious that the names of those two brave men who voted with the liberals are not among those of their fellow tenants. What can be the cause of this? Did they, and the one who remained neutral, refuse to have their names down ? Did they approve of the treatment inflicted on their landlord ? No, most certainly. They are among the best men, in every sense, which the baronet has on his extensive estate, and I may venture to affirm that they disapproved of the logic fof rotten eggs more entirely and emphatically than any of the others. How is it then that their names are not inserted with tne rest ? hr >⢠".n 'A | .â ⢠â¢, X f>i ;⢠-ILI! -j â u? nrj.i » O liv-- !jce 1 Is it possible that the opprtunity of signing the paper wasr denied them, in order and for the purpose of increasing the odium attached to their independent and conscientiousr voting ? We will leave these questions to be answered for the public by the persons concerned; or else by the public. themselves. I beg to subscribe myself, CENSOR.
