THE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE. THE Somerset County Gazette — a Liberal journal of long standing—bears the highest testimony to the good reputation of Mr Pitman, who is now a candi- date for the representation of the Haverfordwest Boroughs. In recording the qualification of several gentlemen as magistrates at a county session, held at Wells, our Liberal contemporary remarks ;¡ any of our readers in this neighbourhood will feel gratified at the addition made to the magistracy in Mr Pitman. Long resident in this locality, and well acquainted with the feelings and opinions of the inhabitants generally, that gentleman will not, we are quite sure, fail to prove a great acquisition to the Court when the business of the county is under discussion at Quarter Sessions; and his highly honourable dis- position and love of strict justice will be regarded as good guarantees of the fairness and justice with which he will deal with matters of a less pleasing nature—those of a criminal character—when brought before him. Mr Pitman's eminent and valu- able services as one of the founders, and still one of the most energetic supporters, of the Bath and West of England Society, entitled him todistinction more than falls to the lot of ordinary country gentlemen and though it is probable that such services do not enter deeply bto consideration in ,Ae selection of parties to exercise magisterial functions, there are few—among the agricultural classes at least-whot remembering Mr Pitman's Z, good offices in connection with our great agri- cultural society, will not feel all the more gratified on that account that his name has been added to the magisterial roll of this county.' A further proof of the high social standing of Mr Pitman, is to be found in the fact that he is captain of the Bridgwater Troop of tbe West Somerset Yeo- manry.
