HAVERFORDWEST BOROUGHS. MR PITMAN, of Picton Castle, has, in answer to a requisition numerously and iufluentially signed, consented to become a candidate for the Haver- fordwest Boroughs at the next election. Mr Pitman issued his address to the Constituency on Friday, and at once commenced his canvass. The success he has hitherto met with has been most encouraging. In principle he is Conserva- tive, "entertaining at the same time liberal views towards all good measures that commend them- selves to his judgment, come from whichever side they may." He is opposed to the dis- establishment and disendowment of the Irish Church, but is willing to "consider and aid in remedying all evils that may be shewn to exist." "I shall offer," he says, the strongest oppo- sition to the endowment of the Church of Rome in Ireland. I rejoice at the removal of such evils as are the cause of offence aud wrong to the great body of our Non-conformist Brethren, and I wish to see the further removal of any under which they may still continue to labour. The address is extremely moderate in its tone, and his views on the most prominent questions are stated at length with great frankness and candour. On Monday, Col. Edwardes, who unsuccessfully contested the Borough at the last election, issued an address, soliciting the seat. The hon. gentleman is a fast-going liberal, being in favour of the disestablishment of the Irish Church, and a supporter of the ballot. His views are not those most favoured by the Constituency, and we hope the electors will make their opinions felt by the rejection of a candidate who prefers secret voting and is pre- pared to back up a party attack upon the Church in Ireland.
