THE CONSERVATIVE VICTORY IN CARDIGANSHIRE. THE result of the election of a member for Cardiganshire this week, shows that the majority of the county voters have recognized the old representative principle, that every community should have the right of selecting from among their own number fit and proper persons to sit in the Commons House of Par- liament on their behalf. The limited time in which the election took place prevented the possibility of anything like a perfect or- ganization on the part of the Conservatives in the county; but, encouraged by the fact that such a popular man as Mr Thos. E. Lloyd, of Coedmore, agreed to come forward as a Candidate, they worked earnestly on his behalf, and the result has been to them a glorious victory. In 1868, Mr Evan M. Richards, of Swansea, the late member, se- cured a gross majority of 154 votes over his opponent, Mr Vaughan. In the present contest the "sturdy Liberals" did not come out so strongly in support of their former favourite, and the consequence was that his re-election was lost. Mr LLOYD, the success- ful candidate was elected with a majority amounting to more than one-sixteenth of the total number of votes given for both; and we are not aware that there is any reason to suppose that the honours he has thus won have not been achieved fairly, honourably, and gallantly. Cardiganshire has, therefore, made one addition to the Conservative majority in the next Parliament; and Liberalism, with the aid of the Ballot, has proved recreant to the fame and the wide- spread reputation it won by its gallant fight in 1868." The Liberals have lost a seat, at which they are sorely displeased it is not always easy to submit gracefully to a defeat and to confess having been beaten. It must not, however, be supposed that defeat will bring about disorganisation in the Liberal ranks they will enquire into the causes of what was to them an unlooked-for result, and will seek to learn how to convert defeat into victory. May we venture a word of advice, and ask whether it would not seem more becoming and decorous for Ministers of the Gospel to keep aloof from taking active part in poli- tical meetings and in political committee business ? The Western Mail has taken umbrage at certain utterances made by a minister from a political platform at Lam- peter the other day; and surely it would be well not to give occasion for the publica- tion of such comments as the following:— It is a disgrace to the age and a scandal to the times that quasi-blasphemy should be fulminated from the pulpits of political Dis- senters, who, to gain their ends, are not above forming an alliance with the advo- cates of profane teaching. No doubt Mr HENRY RICHARD has done his best to influ- ence the electors in favour of Mr E. M. RICHARDS, and it may even be that the honourable and ex-reverend gentleman, while expatiating on the supposed virtues of his friend, has tacitly countenanced, if he has not openly encouraged, the rabid utter- ances of men who, like the impious minister at Lampeter, whose outrageous speech we recently published in our columns—have not scrupled to drag into a political contest the SAVIOUR'S name, or to prostitute the most hallowed associations in the hope of advan- taging the cause of faction. We trust most sincerely that all true Conservatives and pious Nonconformists who hold the Scrip- tures dear will resent the interference of Radical partisans bent upon endeavouring zn to secure the return of Mr E. M. RICHARDS at any sacrifice of self-respect or regard for the sanctity of religion." It is pleasant to see party and political differences laid aside. When members are returned to Parliament they have in keeping the interests not merely of one party or class, but of all whom they represent. Recognising this principle, we are sure that the new member for Cardiganshire will be the representative of the varied interests in the constituency, and not of any particular section. Party interests are important, but general considerations should be pre- dominant.
♦- PARLIAMENTS SINCE 1837. THE recent dissolution of Parliament is the ninth which has taken place since her Ma- jesty came to the Throne in June, 1837. The House of Commons in existence at that time was dissolved on the 17th July, under tho auspices of Lord MELBOURNE, who was then Prime Minister. It met on the 15th November following, and remained in exist- ence until the 23rd June, 1841, when it was dissolved by Lord MELBOURNE in consequence of an adverse vote of the House. This is the only instance during Queen VICTORIA'S long reign in which a Minister has sent about its business a Parliament called by himself. The next House met on the 19th of August, 1841, and the first thing which it did was t» take Sir ROBERT PEEL in power. It was dissolved on .the 23rd of July, 1847, by Lord JOHN RUSSELL, who by this time bad succeeded Sir ROBERT PEEL at the head of affairs. The House, thus summoned, met on the 18th of November, and existed until the 1st of July, 1852, when an appeal was made to the country by Lord DERBY. The new House assembled on the 4th of the following November, and within a few weeks Lord ABERDEEN had replaced the Earl of DERBY in the Premiership. This was the Parliament which voted the sup- plies for the Crimean war. Early in 1855, it deposed Lord ABERDEEN and put Lord PALMERSTON to rule in his stead. In March, 1857, this Minister, being defeated by a combination of parties, dissolved Par- liament on the 21st day of March, and summoned its successor for the 30th of April. This House enjoyed an existence of rather less than two years, for on the 23rd of April, 1859, it was dissolved by Lord DERBY. Another Parliament assembled on the 31st of May, and having placed Lord PALMER- STON again in office, it lasted for the unusual period of more than six years, and was dis- solved by that Minister on the 6th of July, 1865. It was not until the 1st of February, 1866, that the new House met at Westmin- ster, and Lord PALMERSTON having died in the interval, Lord RUSSELL became once more Premier. This Parliament was dis- solved on the 11th of Novmber, 1868, and the new one summoned by that statesman has just been dispersed by Mr GLADSTONE. Time alone can show by whom the House now in process of election will be dissolved. It is worthy of note that whilst during her MAJESTY'S reign eight parliaments have been summoned, twelve administrations have been called to the councils of the Sovereign. Of the various Prime Ministers, the Earls of ABERDEEN and DERBY, and Viscounts MEL- BOURNE and PALMERSTON have passed away; Lord RUSSELL, now in his 82nd year, can no longer take an active part in public life; and the attention of the country is now steadfastly fixed on the two distinguished commoners who head the respective political parties.
♦ THE PROPOSED VOLUNTEER REVIEW. As the excitement caused by the general election gradually passes away, back roll the matter-of-fact waves of every-day life, and things which glide entirely out of mind amid the roar of political turmoil, again present themselves for consideration. One of these is the question whether there shall be a volunteer review on Easter Monday. This has been a subject of much interest for many years. Sometimes it has been held at Portsmouth, at others at Dover, and more frequently at Brighton; and great is the anxiety and keen the competition amongst the places possessing eligible sites for such a gathering. Many critics have declared that the necessity for such an annual field-day has been done away with in the face of'the autumn manoeuvres, where volunteers, in- stead of a simple march past, have spent days over the actual exercises of camp life. Others, however, still contend for the efficacy of the Easter Monday Review, as being of great importance aud unmistakeable benefit to the volunteer force. For once in a whole twelvemonth our citizen soldiers muster in their thousands, stirred with a consciousness of their numbers and of their strength, and possessing all the enthusiasm which arises from association. Besides, such an event as a review, by bringing a great multitude of spectators together, excites the martial spirit of the people, and in a country where mili- tary pageants are so few, even a parade of our volunteer army once a year reminds the public of the fact that in an age when time is of so much consequence, thousands of men in all ranks are found willing to make sacri- fices in the cause of a common patriotism. Properly managed, the Easter Monday Review ought to be of considerable service to our volunteers. The force has been in existence half a generation, and may therefore claim to be one of our established institutions. It was called into being in the spring of 1859, when the acts of the late Emperor NAPOLEON were regarded with some suspicion by the English people. It has lived down adverse criticism, petty jealousy, and un- generous taunts; and if occasion should arise for its services there is no reason to believe that such a compact and earnest body of men wound be found wanting in discipline or duty. The War Office has sometimes been accused of dealing out a too strict economy to the Volunteers; but we believe that no patriotic taxpayer would begrudge the necessary sum for the complete equip- ment of the force, seeing how valuable the time of many of them must be; and we feel assured that there will be a general feeling of gratification at the successful revival of the Easter Monday Review. The Daily Telegraph says—"Wig are glad to know that the Easter Monday review will be resusci- tated. The War Office never was an obstacle, and its consent may be taken as a foregone conclusion."

During the last year two other students direct from this school graduated at Oxford. THE LONDON MISSION .-Amongst the preachers selected by the incumbents of the London parishes to conduct the mission we are glad to be able to state that Canon Phillips, our able and much respected vicar, has gone up this week at the request of Archdeacon Jennings, of Westminster, to officiate in his church. THE INFIRMARY.—Mr E. L. Cole, the secretary of the Aberystwyth Infirmary and Cardiganshire General Hospital, acknowledges with thanks the receipt of J5 from "Anonymous and also the receipt of a cheque for X3 4s. 6d., being the proceeds of an offertory made at Llandugwydd church on Sunday last, on behalf of the Infirmary. MANCHESTER AND MILFORD RAILWAY COMPANY. -By an advertisement in another column, it will be seen that the general ordinary half-yearly meet- ing of the shareholders is to be held at 2, Moorgate- street, London, on the 27th inst., at eleven o'clock in the forenoon, for transacting the general business of the company.

The room has, with what we must call customary liberality, been kincly lent for the occasion by Mr J. B. Balcombe. An excellent programme has been prepared for the delectation of the audience, which we have no doubt will be large. LLANFIHANGEL.—A meeting was held in the schoolroom on Friday, the 6th inst., to give further consideratiqp to the education question. Mr David Morgan, Pwllglas, was voted to the chair. It was resolved that the overseers of the parish should write to the Education Department to enquire whether they would approve of the enlargement of the Llanfihangel school, rather than the building of a new one at Rhydypennau, as proposed by the department.

BORTH. NATIONAL SCHOOL.—The children of the Borth National School enjoyed the delights of a Christmas tree at the Cambrian Hall on Thursday, the 12th inst. Although they numbered about 100, the tree bore so abundant a crop of fruit that none were disappointed. The carols, catches, and songs sung by the children during the evening reflected great credit upon the schoolmistress, Mrs M. A. Griffiths. Oranges and buns were presented to each child as it left the room, and to light the little pilgrims on their homeward course a number of fireworks, rockets, roman candles, &c., were exhibited. It is a pleasure to us to be able to record that in spite of the large number of people who congregated to see the sight no political feeling was displayed. The youthful politicians of the village had the good taste to exercise their lungs in political war cries at a later hour and in a different part of the village.
MONTGOMERY. A woman named Ann Crow, of Churchstoke, was brought up in custody at the special sessions, on Saturday,before R. S.Humphreys, Esq., charged with deserting her bastard child, and leaving it to become chargeable to the common fund of the Forden Union.

MACHYNLLETH. BOARD OF GUARDIANS AND RURAL SANITARY AUTHORITY.—The usual fortnightly meetings of these boards were held on Wednesday last. A letter was read from the Local Government Board with respect to the education of pauper children, which stated that the school for the child must be selected by the parent, and not by the board of guardians or the relieving officer. The guardians had no legal authority to pay for the education of pauper children. THE CASTLEREAGH MEMORIAL TOWER.-A meet- ing of the Castlereagh Memorial Committee was held at the Vane Hall, on Monday, Feb. 9th, for the purpose of finally deciding upon the competitive designs for the proposed Memorial Tower. Forty- five designs had been sent in, most of which were of a high order. At the last committee held on the 15th Jan., thirty-nine were disposed of, and the number reduced to seven, bearing the anonymous signatures "D.V. "J.B. "Thought," "Elise quam videre," Designed with beauty, build with truth," "Avise la fin," and Sigma." These were then reduced to two, D.V." and "Avise la fin." "Avise la fin was finally selected by a majority of eight, and the sealed envelope answering to the anonymous signature having been opened, the chairman said that lie had great pleasure in an- nouncing Mr H. Kennedy, architect, Bangor and London, to be the successful competitor.
WELSH ITEMS. QUEEN'S SCHOLARS EIIP,-Miss Elizabeth Fyfe, late pupil teacher at the Wrexham British School, has succeeded in obtaining a Queen's Scholarship at the Christmas examination held at the Swansea Training College.

Evans, Fron, Llandovery, Carmarthen Mr John Jones, Coedlananfawr, Llanybyther, Cardigan Mr Walter B. C. Jones, Mynydd Ednyfed, Criccieth, Carnar- von Mr Robert Thomas, Eaton Constantine, Iron bridge. THE Vigra and Clogau Gold Mines, near Dol- gelley, which have long remained unworked, have recently been purchased by the proprietors of the Cefngoch Gold Mines, who, on Monday, Feb. 2nd, set a number of men to work there. The Cefncoch Gold Mines will be worked as heretofore but in conjunction with the Vigra and Clogau, under the management of Captain Milford, of Clogwyn House, Dolgelley.
THE TICHBORNE CASE. On Tuesday the Lord Chief Justice continued his analysis of the Sydney evidence, especially that of Bogle, pointing out various ways in which the re- markable foreknowledge which seemed to have con- vinced that old servant of his identity might have been acquired, and how probably many things were suggested by Bogle which he gave defendant credit for remembering. He then commented on the ex- traordinary fact of the defendant, if he were Roger -Tichborne, visiting Wapping on the evening of his 1 arrival. In his summing-up in the Tichborne trial on Wednesday the Lord Chief Justice proceeded to dwell on the recognition of the defendant by Lady: Tichborne, observing that this was not a matter of instinct but of judgment, and that others might be far better judges of identity. He commented on the extraordinary conduct of the defendant in the first interview at Paris, and the transactions with Baigent. In answer to a juryman, his lordship said he hoped Dr Kenealy's example would be regarded as a warning by the -bar of England. In continuing his summing up in the Tichborne case on Thursday, the Lord Chief Justice referred to an expression in one of the defendant's letters which indicated that he was indebted for much in- formation to Roger's letters in Lady Tichborne's possession. He dwelt on the numerous errors con- tained in defendant's letter, such as Roger never could have made. He also commented strongly on the irregularity of defendant's retaining in his ser- vice three persons whose testimony would be import- ant, and by whose aid he could elicit information from carabineers and others. [BY TELEGRAPH.] Yesterday (Friday) the Lord Chief Justice re- marked that it could only be speculation as to whether defendant had resorted to the sources of information open to him. He put it to the jury whether the defendant's going as far Rio and then turning back would be attributed to ;anything but his disinclination to meet people at Chili.
4 REVIEW. THE Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil (published at the Argus Office, Melbourne), has been received by us from the London office, 26, Cornhill. This is a new illustrated journal, and carries out the intentions of the publishers in dealing with the picturesque phases of public and social life in the colonies. The number before us contains a sketch of "The Carl case discharge of Mount and Morris by the Supreme c«urt A few weeks since, in a letter we published from Australia, comments were made by the writer upon this noted case. There are also Scenes at a coursing meeting," '•Life in Pentridge," "The steamship Claud Hamiliton in a storm: lass of Capt. Rouse," Hospital Sunday at Sandhurst church parade at Camp-hill," "Hospital Sunday in Melbourne: the special service at the Theatre Royal," "Scenes in Tasmania," portrait of a Fiji judge, view of a missionary meeting at Fiji, &c. The letter-press ,7' comprises a chronicle of the month's news, besides well-written descriptions of the sketches, a contiuua- tion of Botanicai excursions in Tasmania," a chapter on "Socialities," sporting and theatrical news, an account of the native war at Fiji, and several other items of interest. This paper will bear favourable comparison with our own illustrated weeklies, and will no doubt become exceedingly popular.
THE GENERAL ELECTION. CARDIGANSHIRE. RECEPTION OF MR. DAVID DAVIES, M.P. IN ABERYSTWYTH. Mr David Davies, the newly-elected member for the Cardigan Boroughs, arrived in Aberystwyth by the last train (Manchester and Milford Railway) on Friday, the 6th inst. It was generally known in the town that he would arrive by that train, and many hundreds of people assembled at the sta- tion to meet him. When the shrill whistle of the engine was heard, a barrel of tar, fixed on planks, and borne along on the shoulders of men, was lighted against the entrance to the station, where also a carriage with ropes attached was in readiness to receive the honoured gentleman. As soon as Mr Davies had taken his seat, accompanied by Mr Alderman Richard Roberts, the cheers of the populace became almost deafening, and the procession moved off, headed by the tar barrel, the contents of which blazed brilliantly and emitted a large volume of smoke, which at times enveloped the carriage and occupants. Somewhere in the procession was a tin-whistle-and- drum band, which demonstrated" in unmistake- able accents, a determination of not going home till morning." At one time the procession, we believe, numbered nearly three thousand persons; the cheering was enthusiastic, not only from those in the procession, but also from persons at many windows along the line of route; who greeted their representative with shouts of Davies for ever," and in many ways showed their apprecia- tion of him. The procession, having lasted for more than an hour, halted at the Liberal committee room, in Pier-street, where Mr Davies addressed the people in Welsh, and they slowly dispersed. We regret to say that a few roughs," or persons who have no idea of "fair play," broke several windows of houses occupied by those who exhibited Con- servative colours. This cowardly conduct, we hope, will not be repeated.—[The above appeared in the Third Edition only of last Saturday's issue.] It is estimated that over jE20 worth of damage was done on Friday night by the smashing of plate glass windows. A protest against such dastardly and senseless conduct was printed and issued, and we are glad to state that the pruceedings through- out the present week have been unaccompanied with acts of destruction of property. ABERYSTWYTH. Tuesday, being the day appointed for the polling, was observed in Aberystwyth as a general holiday. The shops were closed. The polling place here was in the Town-hall, and in its vicinity, through- out the day, many persons loitered, despite the prevalence of a biting easterly wind. From early morning till late at night the boys, who seemed to emulate each other in making noise, incessantly shouted a sort of battle-cry, the purport of which seemed to be that Richards would be honoured and Lloyd dishonoured if the electors would only put their shoulder to the wheel." The electors them- selves did not exhibit any undue excitement, but exercised their franchise under the Ballot Act quietly and orderly. The display of the candidates' colours in the several towns where the polling stations were fixed was said to predominate in favour of Mr Lloyd, the Conservative candidate. It was well known that the Liberal party in the county had been well organised but the determined and business like action of the Conservatives during the short time since their candidate's address ap- peared was such as convinced politicians that the contest would be a severe one. At night there was a procession through the streets of Aberystwyth. The processionists were chiefly boys and young men, and they carried a lighted tar barrel. The ballot boxes were conveyed from the twelve different polling-stations to Cardigan. On Wednesday the town resumed its normal con- dition until the evening, when the streets in the vicinity of the Telegraph-office were thronged with persons anxious to learn the result of the contest. There seems to have been a great deal of time wasted after the close of the poll, or the time occu- pied in counting the votes must have been unneces- sarily long. It was past ten o'clock before we received a telegram from our correspondent at Cardigan, announcing that Mr Lloyd had been elected member for the county, with a majority of 215 over his opponent, Mr E. M. Richards. At about half-past eight a telegram was received by the Conservative committee, informing them that Mr Lloyd had secured a majority of over 200 votes, and the information was at once circulated. Pre- sently a large bonfire was lighted on the top of Penglais-hill, in a direct line with Little Darkgate and New streets, where hundreds of persons had congregated, and the sight was witnessed by the vast crowd with infinite delight. The scene was exceed- ingly grand. The illumination was so great as actually to expose to view through the darkness of the night the bare and quarried rock upon which the fire had been lighted. More lighted tar barrels were carried through the streets by men who headed vast processions of boys, girls, men, and women. Beyond an unlimited amount of shouting, and the throwing of fire about the streets occasion- ally, there was nothing to call for the interference of the police. The official declaration of the poll was not known in Aberystwyth till half-past two o'clock on Thurs- day afternoon. It is believed that in Aberystwyth, Cardigan, Llanrhystid, Lampeter, and Tregaron stations, the polling on Tuesday was greatly in Mr Lloyd's favour, whilst at Llandyssil, Llanarth, Pontrhyd- fendigiad, Rhyd Lewis, Smelting, Talybont, and Ystrad stations, the voting was either balanced or there was a small preponderance in favour of Mr Richards. CARDIGAN. A Liberal meeting was held at the Guildhall, Cardigan, on Saturday evening, February 7th, when Mr Henry Richard, M.P., addressed a crowded meeting. The chair was taken by Mr Charles J. Evans, solicitor. Mr Richard (who spoke in English and Welsh) was frequently applauded. Able ad- dresses were also delivered by the Revs W. Jones, Bridgend, and W. Davies, Capel Mair. The newly-elected member, who was enthusiastic- ally received by the inhabitants of Cardigan, ad- dressed his constituency on Thursday morning. He congratulated them upon returning to Parliament a man of their own county. He said that in refer- ence to his supporting the 25th clause of the Educa- tional Act, his epeinies had circulated a false and malicious report, viz., that there was no Bible to be found at Coedmore. During his canvass he found that the late member was exceedingly unpopular with the farmers. He referred to Mr Richards' promises of economy, and to his voting that all elec- tion expenses should be defrayed by the ratepayers. Mr Lloyd concluded his address by showing the necessity for reform in local taxation. The car- riage containing Mr, Mrs, and Miss Lloyd was drawn through the principal streets of Cardigan, the inhabitants exhibiting intense feelings of delight. The election of members of Parliament for this county passed off in the Cardigan district very quietly. There was no disturbance throughout the day, and in the evening the town was soon as quiet as usual. To all appearances the polling was thoroughly one-sided, for with the exception of very few, nearly all the voters passed from Mr Lloyd's committee room to the polling station. The Liberal committee appeared to be thoroughly dispirited, and if other stations came anywhere near Cardigan, Mr Lloyd's return was considered to be safe. From telegrams received during the afternoon by his committee, the success of Mr Lloyd seemed to be beyond a doubt. The counting of the ballot papers did not commeuce until about noon on Wednesday, and the result was not made known in Cardigan until seven, o'clock in the evening, when it was stated that Mr Lloyd had secured a majority of 215 votes over his opponent. TALIESIN. On Monday evening last a meeting of Mr Lloyd's supporters was held in the schoolroom of this village. The attendance was large and respectable. Mr Richard Jones, who was voted to the chair, made a very able and eloquent speech. He showed that the Liberals, who professed to reduce rates and taxes, had not succeeded in their pretensions and, after touching upon the leading political questions of the day, he warmly advocated Mr Lloyd's cause, and spoke of that candidate as being a popular landlord and a member of a, very learned profession, and as being a gentleman of moderate political views. Mr Jenkins, of Borth, then addressed the meeting. Mr Davies, of Aberystwyth, followed, and, in the course of his remarks, he dwelt upon and very severely criticized the conduct of the late government. He showed that whilst they pretended to lower rates and taxes they increased those burdens. The farmers had found that instead of their rates and taxes being reduced they were constanly being increased and assured them that if Mr Disraeli assumed the reins of government-as he (the speaker)-had no doubt he would-in the next Parliament, he would direct his efforts towards adjusting the taxes of the country, so as to bring a great amount of property now untaxed to bear its due proportion of the burdens now falling so heavily upon the tenant farmers. (Applause.) Alluding to the Ballot Act, Mr Davies commented upon its principle, and said that the Act, in its present state, simply encouraged hypocrisy and deceit. ("No, no," and "hear, hear.") He concluded by asking those present, as men who had their own as well as their country's interests at heart, to support Mr Lloyd in the coming contest. (Applause.) Mr Jones, Pantcoeh, next spoke in a very able and telling manner. He said that at the last election he supported Mr Richards but he had since then found out that the blind bad been leading the blind and that, instead of Mr Richards fulfilling the promises he made, the people's burdens had been increased. The school board had been thrust upon them their taxes had been augmented farmers' dogs, sheep, and horses were taxed and their burdens had been made grievously heavy. The proceedings shortly afterwards terminated. PENLLWYN. On Saturday evening last a meeting of Mr E. M. Richards's supporters was held in the school board school-room, Penllwyn, the Rev Thomas Davies in the chair. Mr Richards, jun., attended the meeting and spoke on his father's behalf, observing that illness was the cause of his absence. He appealed to the electors to return his father. Mr J. Bowen, G. W. C. T. of Wales, the Rev Job Miles, of Aberystwyth, Mr James Evans, Troedrhywlwba, and Mr Absolom Prys, Factory, spoke in favour of Mr Richards. The attendance, whieh was large, included only a few electors. The Conservatives have worked hard in this district. On Thursday, when the result of the contest was known, there was much rejoicing, and at night bonfires were lighted. ABERAYRON. Mr Henry Richard visited this place, after his re-election for Merthyr, and met with a very warm reception. At a public meeting held here on the 9th inst. Mr Richard delivered a very able Welsh speech in support of Mr E. M. Richards. A correspondent writing from Aberayron says :— The ballot boxes were not sent to Cardigan last night, but six of them were brought to Aberayron, and kept here all night. They did not leave here until 8.30 this morning. One of the boxes came in without anyone in charge of it except the driver of the car, who was not sober. The ostler of the Feathers Hotel took charge of the box, and took it into the Tory committee-room, where it remained all night. Can this be legal? Is it not scandalous ? All the boxes might have been sent to Cardigan before 12 last night. At a late hour last night we received the following telegram from another cor- respondent — The ballot boxes of six polling districts of Cardiganshire were taken to Aberayron and left there over the night of the polling-day. One box was kept at the house of the presiding officer for Llanon, where he alighted and left the box in charge of the post-boy, who, after waiting a long time, drove on without the presiding officer, and left the box at the inn without anyone in charge of it, the presiding officer arriving in about an hour and a half after. The fact of the boxes being left at the Tory committee-room at the inn over the night, with free access to them, has created a great sensation, and, in the opinion of the Liberals, it is the only solution of the unprecedented defeat in Cardiganshire.—South Wales Daily News. TREGARON. There was much rejoicing here on Wednesday night after the result of the election was made known. The country was lighted up all round the village with bonfires. LLANRHYSTID. The proceedings here on Tuesday, which were orderly and quiet whilst the polling was taking place, ended rather unpleasantly towards one of the agents, Mr Evans, of Aberystwyth.' It appears that Mr Evans rightly protested against paying for victuals and drink supplied to a number of rpughs with whom he had made no engagement and whose services he did not require the roughs seized him and took him to a room in a public-house, and pre- vented his escape. They peremptorily refused to allow Mr Evans to regain possession of his horse and trap,although he then offered to pay the demand made upon him, and sneeringly requested him to pay the last election bill." Mr Evans, although naturally frightened, was not altogether friendless, and he managed in the course of the evening to despatch a messenger to the Telegraph-office with a message for Aberystwyth for assistance. As soon as the telegram was delivered in Aberystwyth several of the largest and strongest men in the town were summoned together, and they cheerfully res- ponded to the call and proceeded in a conveyance to Llanrhystid, followed by Superintendent Lloyd. As soon as they arrived, Mr Evans was liberated the pony and trap were given up and all returned safely to Aberystwyth. This thoroughly Conservative little village (writes a correspondent) became the scene of warm rejoic- ing, when late on Wednesday night the welcome news of Mr Lloyd's success reached it, and some hours of the night were spent by the inhabitants in giving vent to their feelings of joy. The following evening bonfires appeared on several of the sur- rounding hills, and nearly every house in the village was brilliantly illuminated—even the poorer cottages were not backward in doing all that their means and windows would allow. The vicarage, which stands a little above the village, had a very pretty effect, and the assembled crowd seemed highly de- lighted with the whole scene. More could be said if time would allow, but we cannot close without adding that all passed off in a most creditable man- ner worthy of Conservative feeling. SWANSEA. Not a little interest is manifested here as to the result of the Cardiganshire election, and during the whole of the afternoon a large crowd congregated near the Post Office, anxiously awaiting a telegram giving a result of the struggle. Mr E. M. Richards. to whose name, we believe, we should now again attach but cannot properly do so until after the oiiicial declaration of the polling, has arrived here after his arduous campaign. As we were despatching our parcel a brass band was parading the streets in honour of the return of Mr Richards, a rumour to the effect having got abroad, but upon inquiry we found it was without foundation.—South Wales Daily News.
CARMARTHENSHIRE. The polling in Carmarthen on Wednesday for- tunately passed off very quietly, there being an entire absence of that disgraceful rowdyism which characterised the borough election on Friday last. A few roughs loitered about the vicinity of the Guildhall-square during the whole day, but there was not at any time the slighest approach to a row, nor even a case of single combat. Several convey- ances were in requisition by each party from an early hour, and brought a goodly number of voters to the poll, and there is no doubt that in this district a large proportion of tthe electors recorded their votes, and still less doubt that the majority of those votes were given to Lord Ernlyn and Mr Jones, the Conservative candidates. There were twenty-four polling-stations in the county, but very little tidings had reached Carmarthen from any of them, except from the neighbourhood of Llandilo, whence it was confidently reported in the evening that the Conser- vatives had polled at least four times as many votes as their opponents. Even the Liberals are for the most part despondent as to the result, only a few of the most ardent professing to believe in the return of Mr Powell, whereas the general opinion of the most trusty politicans on both sides is that the Conservative candidates will be returned by a very large majority.— Western Mail. PEMBROKE BOROUGHS. A petition will, we are informed, be lodged against the return of Mr Reed, on account of bribery. The other side" have ample proof." We think it not improbable that, in spite of the rumour to which we gave currency, that Sir John Pakington would stand for Hackney if there should be a re-election, he will be raised to the peerage. Baron Westwood, of Westwood, will be a gain to the House of Peers.—Morning Advertiser. The London correspondent of the Birmingham Daily Post writes It is usual for a Prime Minister, on resigning office, to recommend some of his principal supporters to the Sovereign for the honours of the peerage, &c. Mr Edward Baines, of Leeds, is to be made a baronet, and other defeated Liberal candidates have a equal claim to that distinction. THE EARL OF DERBY ON THE PREMIERSHIP.—At a dinner given on Tuesday night, at Willis's Rooms, London, for the benefit of the University College Hospital, the Earl of Derby presided. In answer to a remark from Sir Francis Goldsmid (in pro- posing the noble earl's health), that the country would more gladly see him Premier than they would many other noblemen or gentlemen whose names could be mentioned, Lord Derby said-" Sir Francis has thrown over me a fly very skilfully, but I don't mean to rise. All I can say is that I go in for fairplay, and I think that he who has fought the battle so well should enjoy the victory."
THE ROMAN CARNIVAL. A correspondent at Rome writes that the Carni- val was inaugurated on Saturday. Agreeable to the "Royal edict of Pasquino IL," King of the Carnival, the opening act was a grand mythological spectacle—the reception by Pasquino of the visit of his Majesty the Emperor Saturn" and his daughter Ceres. The deities duly arrived at mid- day in a trireme at the Pons Miletus, followed by a birerne supposed to be filled with freed slaves, the debarkation taking place on the Grand Quay of the Ponte Molle. The weather was splendid, like June in England, and thousands of Romans were congre- gated on the banks of the Tiber to witness the landing. From thence the procession moved in triumphal Carnival pomp along the Flaminian Way, entering the city at the Porta del Popolo, Pasquino, at the Piazza del Popolo, giving his welcome to Saturnus amid the acclamations of the crowd. Preceded by heralds in armour, the cortège then slowly traversed the Corso to the Piazza Venetia, gold and silver coins being scattered among the people. Saturnus was mounted on a triumphal car, and accompanied by a Nubian band; while Ceres was seated on the summit of an Egyptian temple, and surrounded by priestesses of Isis. There were also Olympian temples. The freedmen were repre- sented as guarding four colossal lions. Pasquino himself bestrode a huge elephant the rest of the show being made up of bands and maskers in all varieties of device and character more or less in keeping with the old world idea, and the return of the age of gold and times of plenty.

AN ELECTOR'S LAMENT. (From Punch.") Vote by ballot ? Vote be bothered Vote by ballot Vote be blowed Never for them blessed Liberals wouldn't ha' voted if I'd know'd. Call it Liberal? I say shabby, not to pay a poor man's vote. Wot's that worth now when among 'em all there ain't a fi.' pun note ? Melancholy alteration—ain't it ?-from the good old times, When they used at every 'lection ringin' for to sot the chimes. Then it was the tradesmen's 'arvest, which the poor man reaped as well. Every free and independent 'lector 'ad a vote to sell. 0 the days witch I remember, never more sitch times as they, Druv to poll in a pheaton, ever sitch a little way. Open 'ouse at each committee—drink and wittles gratis free; Ar the times as we 'ave seen, and now to think of them we see! Treatin' now is made corruption, and the lawr is so severe, There aint nothink nowhere going, no not even a pint of beer. Wot a change for to come over this here former 'appy land! Call it standin' for a member when a drop he musn't stand ? 'Ere's a state of things we've come to which before was never known. Now a voter's vote and interest he can't call no more his own. Wot's a Briton's ancient birthright, which I am for- bid to use ? Wy not for a mess of porridge let me sell it if I choose? Now my vote I can't dispose of, 'taint no good no more to me. Who the man is for my money there aint one as I CEIH S6G. And for takin' useless trouble I don't feel I got no call. Witch, if so, would be a reason why I should'nt vote at all. But for me between the parties though to choosp there's scarce a pin, The've a trifle in their favour change as always welt again. There's some hopes, however little, if so be they grin the day. So the Tories I shall poll for, though I flings my VIto away.
