The inscription in gold letters inside the Bible is as follows:Presented to William Richards by the Committee of the St..

She has been within the last few weeks considerably altered and modifie under the immediate superintendence of the Board o Directors, who are at present putting m an entirely new deck and in compliance with the requirements of the Board of Trade, bushing the screw with brass, or rather gun-metal bearings. No additional capital will be re- ouired to defray the expense of these alterations, which S be complet'ed by the end of the month, so that the vessel may again go to sea in March. It is probable her next vovage will be to New York. The three actions which Mr Scott Russell has brought against the com- pany, have, by order of the Court of Common Pleas, been consolidated in one. Mr. Russell a claim is m all £60,000. The company have against that gentleman a cross action for jEl 30,000. Both causes will come on for trial next term, when it is probable they may be ie- ferred to arbitration. Mr. Hope has resigned his seat at the board, and as yet no one has been appointed to suc- ceed him.—Sun. DEATH OF SIR JOHN OWEN, BART., M.P.

THE TENEY-OUTUMERTY ANNUAL PLOUGHING MATCH came off at Knightson, on Wednesday, February the 6th. The day'which at first was dark and lowering cleared up, and the match came off beneath an almost cloudless sky. The ground and teams were in good condition and, as a stron" competition was expected the attendance was tolerably numerous and the excitement rather greater than usual. After a long examination of the claims of the respective candida'es, the awards were made as fol- lows:—First class. First prize (£1 6s), to Thomas Griffiths ploughman to Mr G. Ormond, of Williamston; second prize (|l 4-'), to David Llewellyn ploughman to Mrs Thomas, of Rowston third prize ( £ 1 2s), to James Griffiths, ploughman to Miss Richards, of Tenby; fourth prize (18s) to William Thomas, ploughman to Miss Richards; fifth pme (15s) to George Williams, plough- man to Miss Richards: sixth prize (7s 6d) to Thomas Brace, ploughman to Mr G. Ormond, of Williamston. Second class.-First prize (zi), to William Watkins, ploughman to Mr Griffiths, of Penally Court; second nrize (15s), to John Davies, ploughman to Mr Thomas, of Vatson third prize (12s), to Lewis Morgan plough- man to Mr Gitbs, of Cornishdown; fourth prize (10s), to William Thomas, of Southwell (own team); fifth prize (7s Gel), to Caleb Perkins, ploughman to Mr Llewellyn, of Carne; sixth prize (5s), to George Phillips, of Holly Bash (own team.) The first three were so much of a tie, that at one time the judges had a thought of res.ln« the usual method of solving ploughing match difficulties by tossing; however, at last they agreed to make only a slight difference in the prizes, which were awarded as above. The greatest praise is due to the stewards and judges, for the pains they took. The judges were Mr Hendy, of Flemington. Mr Shears, of Houghton, and MI Thomas, ot Saundersfoot. The stewards, MR^eoige Griffiths, of Knightson, Mr D.Thomas, of 7^°"; Mr Prickett, the secretary, return their thanks for the liberal support they have met with from subscribers and donors. We resume our notice of the Tenby Records which appeared in the Cambrian Journal, with a paper endorsed Heads of Kin? Charles I., his charter to renby. In the preamble it states 'Whereas our town of Tenby, in the County of Pembroke, situate upon the sea shore, hath been of long time an antient and populous Borough and very well accommodated with a large Haven for the receipt and preservation of ships and barques coming thither.' And the Burgesses there have ulsed and enjoyed within the Haven and Town aforesaid and vicinity thereof, diverse liberties, franchises, lrrtd unities, Customs, and pre-eminences as well by reason or pretence of djveise prescriptions used, and their Customs there used and allowed for the time whereof the memory of man is not^to the contrarv. As also by virtue and means of Diverse Charters and Letters Patent heretofore made and granted to the Burgesses of the said Town by di verse names by our progenitors, by niS wTer.« 'oIr »eU-Lo.od Queens of That whereas our well-beloved subjects, the mayor, &c., humbly brought us, to confine their Courts, Privileges, Customs, therefore graciously yielding to the Petitions of our said subjects with a royal and gracious mind remembering theh- readv and acceptable service done for us before our Sng to the throne of England, of our especial graee certain knowledge, and mere notion for us our he'rs a'^ Biicopssors do will, ordain, constitute, and grant by tnese presents that the said town of Tenby with the precincts thereof remain for evejLa free town.' The charter then goes on making it lJfcl to hold a Council-house,-to convene meetings, of the Mayor, Aldermen, and the rest of the Common Council giving r ower to the Mayor to give the 'castin" vote.' The majority so obtained to make lawes in writing (or the government of the town and for the Officers, Artificers, and Residents of the said town, &c to be, have, and demean themselves in their offices and' vocations, and for victualling thereof, and limit pains onH minishinents bv corporal imprisonments, &c., mnes, &cd PTo tbe to lea.y mnes by dimes, to.tb. use of the Corporation without any account to be given w the King.

The 4th Document bears date 17 Julie 1657, and contains a list of the Burgesses, mchard Barrow being Mayor at tne time. It is curious to remark that the surnames of Thomas, Davies, and Smith (na™es th Ust once blackberries in September) only occur in tbe iist °nc^ each While we find others certainly uncommon at a1 events in the town of Tenby. There is Barrow, Barrett, Wyatt, 8ayes, Henbrough, Holmes, Mann, Hales, Russell, Stones, Cort, Getlnn, liawckwelU Smyth, cnritcniey rphnrn„« and names seemingly most popular are John Thomas a Richard, there being in the number of 70 Burgesses on the list 12 10 and 6 oftherespect ,ye names There mafnder being made up David's, Walter s, ««gh, Lewis, Griffith, Humphrie, Hugh. and Melchior. To those who make the name of Smyth to be merely a modern altera- tion of Smith the above will show that aileast the change bears date 1657. The records already puolished end with the remark that the signatures of the Mayor, Aldermen vc are generallv plainly written: the signatures of Risain who was Mayor in 1618 and 1654 is ^markably well written: this is a sufficient °ont#st tothe celebrated hore of a Mayor to whom the gallant Nelson, addressed these well-to-be-remembered words Remember thee?

PEMBROKE-DOCK. THE FORT BARRACKS and the fortifications down the harbour arc this week to be occupied by six batteries of the Coast Brigade. The head quarters, with the band of the brigade, will be stationed at the former fortifica- tion. They will relieve the Antrim Artillery Militia, who are forthwith to return to Ireland to be disem- bodied. THE GREAT EASTERN.-Several officers, both in the sailing and engineering departments have joined the Great Eastern, which is still on the gridiron at Neyland, Milford Haven, and are actively engaged making pre- parations for fitting her for sea. There are also a host of shipwrights employed upon her, and there is every reason to expect she will be able to leave some time during the month of March. It is not yet decided who will have the command of her. It has been definitely arranged that she is to return to Milford Haven from America-no other port affording equal accommodation. She is still open to the inspection of visitors. There are but few, however, who now avail themselves of the opportunity. No doubt when she becomes shipshape, and excursion trains are put on, she will once more be the centre of attraction of the port.

PEMBROKE YARD.—A beautiful little man-of-war, called the Pardora, with a figure-head of that goddess, plague-box in hand, was launched from Pembroke Royal Dockyard on Thursday week, and though the weather was not unpropitious, yet the season of the year not being favourable, a much smaller concourse of spectators than usual assembled to witness the ceremony. The follow- ing is a statement of her principal dimensions:- ft. in. Length between perpendiculars. 145 0 Ditto of keel for tonnage. 127 10 Breadth extreme. 25 5 Ditto for tonnage 25 ] Ditto moulded. 24 7 Depth in hold 13 0 Burthen in tons, 427 73-94ths.

Mr Thomas bids fair to be a first-rate speaker: for it would be difficult to name a young man of his age, who would have handled the subject which he had in hand in the eloquent manner he did. We wish him all success; for he certainly has talents for great usefulness. Cardiff and Mtrihyr Guardian.

FISHGU ARD. FEBRUARY FAIR.-At the above fair which took place on Tuesday week an average amount of business was done in horses of inferior quality, whilst but few good animals were offered. The show of pigs on the same day was unusually large, and readily found purchasers at good prices. A SEVERE GALE.—A long calm was on Friday last succeeded by a violent gale from N.E., which continued throughout Saturday. Considerable damage was done to the backing of the new Pier, which is in an unfinished state. A number of vessels remained inside throughout the storm in perfect security, and have since sailed on their respective journeys. Fortunately there were no vessels at anchor in the roads, or the want of a break- water outside the bay would have been sadly felt. TEMPERANCE.—This town, once so famous for its numerous self-sacrificing victims at the shrine of Bacchus, has with a suddenness of transition, almost miraculous, become all at once loudly demonstrative in favour of tea, coffee, and its limpid streams. Long processions of most respectable looking individuals joyously chanting in the ancient language of their fathers, their praises and ad- miration of one Dirwest (who is evidently a great favourite amongst them) are of very frequent occurrence. The foul spirit ot alcohol has been exorcised from its temple in the 'shijr aground,' and temperance (and we trust many of her attendant virtues) has been formally installed in his stead, amidst a profusion of the good things, of this life, the approbation of venerable savans, and the sweet glances ot some of the most blooming damsels who bud and blossom in this highly favoured spot. This delectable state of affairs is to be attributed chiefly to the good fortune of the Rev. M. Roberts, of Swansea, who a short time ago, whilst on a visit to this place, fortunately con- verted the right individuals. Most zealously have these proselytes applied themselves to the task of regenerating by the means of water and tea, their fallen brethren: fore- most amongst them we may mention Mr David Vaughan, he has certainly done wonders: may he long continue in his praiseworthy task of plucking brands from the fire, and thereby saving from utter destruction the worldly substance, bodily health, &nd domestic peace of many a fallen child of Adam.
naebeetS The annual Ploughing Match in connection with the Narberth Agricultural Society took place on the 8th inst., at Great Vaynor, in the parish of Llawhaden. At lialf-past ten o'clock nine ploughs started for the first prize, and sixteen for the second. Half an acre was allowed as the quantity to be done, the furrows to be 8 inches wide by 41, deep. The ploughing was acknow- ledged to be superior to that of any of past years, and the judges. Mr James, of Abersolwin, Mr Griffiths, Cille- vach, and Mr Williams, Gupton, had great difficulty in deciding the different winners, as the work was done with such accuracy that great caution was required in coming to a decision. The following prizes were awarded: —1st Class.— lt.t prize, Win Lawrence, Langdon; 2nd prize, Daniel Rees, Glyn; 3rd prize, John Waters, Blaenalgoed; 4th prize, John Phillips, Cillevawr. 2nd Class.—1st prize, Evan Davies, Langdon; 2nd prize, George Merrimau; 3rd prize, Daniel Davies, Sadson; 4th prize, Pearce Thomas, Blackalder. Mr Currie enter- tained a large company at dinner, and a convivial and very pleasant evening was spent.

PEMBROKESHIRE PLOUGHING MATCH. gIR>_We saw an account of this match in the Tele- graph yesterday, which may be all true and something more, but all we can say is—though once beaten we can try again; so we hope you will be so kind as to inform those winners of first prizes at Dudwell, that we think, if they consider themselves the best jhoughmen of the day, let them come on with a challenge, and we will meet them any time on reasonable grounds, and perhaps the wind will blow in a different direction. We remain, Sir, your most obedient servants, Feb. 8th, 1861. Two BEATEN PLOUGHMEN. SIR,—Referring to the vituperative and personal speech of the gallant Colonel, on Monday week, I beg to assure you that neither the influence or opinions of Mr T. D. Lloyd had any weight one way or the other, with the magnates, Csesars, and freeholders of the Tivy Side, or any other section of the county of Pembroke. The Lord of the Manor of Cemmes had promised to lead 300 of his feudal serfs to the poll on Thursday, but they dwindled down to 37. Thore will now be no more castle building for the descendant (in the female line) of George Owen, Lord oj Cemmes, and Dorroy King at Arms—no more Newport processions. TheBronwydd ambition is shelved for ever- more. „ y Yours, &c, AN ELECTOR. [This letter was received some weeks ago, but its pub- lication was delayed in consequence of an omission (since supplied) on the part of the author.—ED. P. H.]
PEMBROKESHIRE ELECTION. SIR,—I should not have reverted to the subject of my last letter in your paper, had I not seen a letter of Mr Higgon's in your's of last week; nor should 1 have thought of mentioning Mr Canton's name (for whom I have the greatest respect), but as Mr Higgon has thought proper to do so, I will relate what transpired. On my return to this county, on the day before the nomination, I was informed by Col. Owen's Committee that Mr Canton had promised to be neuter, but was wavering, and I was askecj to see him. I called twice at hi4 house, but did not see him. Each time I saw Mrs Canton. The first time she said she thought it was her husband's intention to be neuter, and wished to remain so, but he was pressed by Mr Higgon to vote for Mr Phillips.' The second time she said he had gone to Newport on business, but was puzzled how to act about the coming election.' I replied I hoped, as a man, he would keep his weid, and if pressed and absent, as she stated, the best thing he could do was, to keep away, re- main on neutral ground, and thus offend no one. I am Sir, your obedient servant, JOHN STOKES. Cuffern Rock, Feb. 14, 1861. P.S.—Since writing the above I have seen Mr Canton, and he denies having told Mr Higgon that I had been teasing him to be neuter and further states that it was his expressed wish and desire to remain neuter.' SIR,—In the columns of the Telegraph last week Mr Hugh C. Owen informed the public that I, at the late Election, professed neutrality. Why does he assert this? And why does he suppress or ignore the fact of my having told his Father that I should vote against him, though not be a dangerous enemy? Not many of my Tenants were registered. Let him refer to the Poll Book j-te the best of my belief it will shew tMt only twelve of them recorded their votes, and six of these voted for Col. Owen. Surely six votes out of twelve are enough for him. No, it seems not: he 'wants more—he wants all.' Be it also known that of these six tenants who voted for Col. Owen, one was active on his behalf, and another a most zealous canvasser. Time will shew whether Mr H. C. Owen is right in asserting that his Father's remarks on me are 'fully justified by letters and private communications.' Time will also shew whether his Father will not, on re- flection, regret that he has unintentionally fallen into the error of giving a too ready credence to fabricated reports. In the mean time, with Truth on my side, I call to mind the well known maxim— Conscia mens recti famse mendacia ridet.' I am, Sir, Your very obedient servant, CHARLES HENRY BARHAM. Trecwn. February 11,1861.
PEMBROKE BOROUGHS ELECTION. SIR,—I have just read the leading article in the Milford Haven Telegraph of this day alluding to the 4 unseemly haste,' 'indelicacy,' and 'indecency' of Mr Meyrick aud his friends, in commencing their canvass so soon (forty- eight hours) after the death of the late lamented Baronet Sir John Owen. Can it be possible that the Editor of the above named journal is so utterly ignorant of the doings of his own party as to be unaware that a certain reverend gentleman, two medicals, and pseudo-medical, were all actively can- vassing Pembroke and Pembroke Dock on Monday, the 4th instant, on behalf of Colonel Owen, 'forty-eight hours' BEFORE Sir John Owen's death I! Talk of 'in- decency What name shall we apply to snch conduct as this? or what shall we say of the glaring falsehood that was invented as an argument to induce people to promise their votes to Sir John or Colonel Owen, as a dissolution of Parliament was imminent.' It is sad indeed to think that aMy one, more especially a Minister of the Gospel, should be so overcome by private feelings and interests as to disregard truth and honesty. It must be equally sad and depressing to Sir Hugh Owen's party, to feel that in 'Lying' only lies their strength, and not in Truth. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, TRUTH. SIR,—Having noticed in the Telegraph reflections upon Mr Meyrick and his supporters, for hiving hastily com- menced canvassing after the death of the late Member, I think it only justice to them to state, that the start in canvassing was taken by Col. Owen's own relatives, and most intimate friends: I regret to say too in anticipation, and before the breath had left the body of the aged friend. I envy not the feelings of those who, in order to gratify their own selfish interests, cruelly induced the poor old gentleman, in bis eighty-sixth year, and suffering as he had for some time been, to undertake a journey and incur the fatigues he did, in such inclement weather, hastening as it must his death. I envy not their feelings under circumstances such as these; but remorse of conscience, if not respect to his memory, ought, I think, to have in- duced them to be the last to move in supplying the vacancy. Had it not been for their unseemly canvass, the friends of Mr Meyrick (who was himself in London at the time) would not have been aware of Sir John's death. They are, therefore, themselves responsible for the steps sub- sequently taken on behalf of Mr Meyrick. Now as to the triumphal entry to Tenby,' also referred to in the Telegraph. It was far from the wish of Mr Meyrick that there should be any demonstration what- ever, and he wrote to his friends to that effect. He also expressed a decided wish to one of his chief Tenby sup- porters, who met him on the road, that out of respect to the memory of Sir John, he should proceed on for the purpose of stopping it. He was however assured, that already there was a host of persons waiting the arrival of himself and Mr G. Lort Phillips, the newly elected Mem- ber for the County, and that it was useless to attempt to stop it. Under such circumstances, I think Mr Meyrick might justly be exempt from the reflections attempted in the Telegraph. One word in conclusion to Col. Owen. From the result of your canvass, you must, Sir, by this time be convinced, that you stand not the slightest chance for the Boroughs, and notwithstanding you may, through the liberality of your friends, as in the case of the County Election, be furnished with funds to defray your expenses, I appeal to you whether, by persisting in again embroil- ing the Constituency in such unnecessary excitement, without the least prospect of success, you act justly to your friends, yourself, and Mr Meyrick? Will you not, by such a course, again render yourself liable to the charge so justly brought against you by Mr G. L. Phillips at the last election. Think you not, Sir, that on finding, as you will, that the majority are pledged against you, it will not be a much more creditable and honourable course, to at once resign, and bide your time, rather than incur such serious re- sponsibilities. I am, Sir, yours obediently, AN ELECTOR. February 14th, 1861.
PEMBROKESHIRE ELECTION. To the Editor of the Electric News and Pembrokeshire Herald. SIR,—Will you be so good as to give insertion to the following letter to the TeUgraph in the Electric News and Pembrokeshire Herald ? It will oblige Yours obediently, J. Ll. MORGAN. High Street, Haverfordwest, Feb. 6,1861. To the Editor of the Telegraph. SIR,—To the unfounded statement made in your jour- nal of January 23,1861, in which my character is aspersed, 1 should not have replied, but have suffered it to pass in silence, had not a friend called this day bringing with him the Telegraph, and drawing my attention to the article entitled 'Summary of the Election,' informing me at the same time, that the statement [remaining un- contradicted] had produced an erroneous impression on the minds of some respectable persons. I deem it only just to myself, and fair to them, that I should, by a state- mentoffacts, disabuse their minds of that impression. The circumstances of the case are these:—In Novem- ber last, Mr Lort Phillips wrote informing me of his candidature for the County representation, requesting: my vote and interest, and in my reply I assured him of my own vote, and of any little influence which I might have; and on the same day 1 wrote fo certain parties re- questing their co-operation, among others, to the Rev. Benjamin Griffiths, but 1 heard nothing from him until the middle of December, when his son, Mr James Griffiths, called with a message from his father, to say that he would be happy to oblige me by voting for Mr Lort Phillips. This I immediately communicated to Mr Phillips's Committee, and from that time relied on him as one of Mr Phillips's supporters. Knowing Mr Griffiths to be aged and infirm, I wrote to inform him that ar- rangements had been made for a close carriage to take him to Mathry, when, to my surprise (one day only be- before the day of polling), I received a note from Mr Griffiths, in which he says, I am very, very sorry, that I am unable to go to the Poll.' I confess I felt annoyed, and immediately wrote to Mr Griffiths, using no word of menace, but expressing displeasure, that he should at the last moment have discovered his inability to go to the Poll, having so lately assured me of his readiness to do so. But I bad learnt that his mind had been unduly biassed, and rendered apprehensive of the consequences of the journey, which, aged and infirm as he is, was excusable, and I take some blame to myself, for not having sufficiently considered it when I wrote to him. The paragraph in your journal of which I complain (broadly insinuating that 1 knew Mr Griffiths had pro- mised Col. Owen, and that I had urged him by menaces to break his word) is the following'The Rev. Benjamin Griffiths, a poor old man, with one foot in the grave and the other on the brink, who had spent a long life in preaching the Word of God to his fellow men, pdtitively frightened at the menaces of Dr. Morgan, of Haverfordwest another professing Dissenter, into breaking his solemn promise to CoL Owen, fo this, so far as I am concerned, I give a positive and emphatic Denial. And, although I had heard that strenuous efforts were being made to keep Mr Griffiths from the poll, I solemnly declare, that never, during the whole Canvass, had I heard that Mr Griffiths had promised to support Col. Owen; and the first intimation of it which I received, was from Col. Owen himself, on the day of the Declaration of the Poll. Pledging myself to the truth of all that I have stated, and declining any future correspondence on the subject, I remain, Sir, yours, and &c., J. LI. MORGAN. Haverfordwest, Feb. 6, 1861.

BAPTISM OP A JEWISH LADY.—The Jewish Herald of this month quotes the annexed letter from the Rev. W. B. Pope, of ManchesterIn the month of August last, I publicly baptised Mrs——in the Wesleyan Chapel, Charlton-cum-Hardy. Her life since her baptism has been irreproachable, and her zeal in her Master's ser- vice exemplary. I have no hesitation in saying that I believe her to be a genuine fruit of Evangelical labour among the Jews.' A GIRL SCALDED TO DEATH.—A shocking accident occurred on Tuesday morning at the residence of Mr Appleby, Upper Smith-street, ClerkenwelL Miss Mary Ann Appleby, aged 12 years, was passing the fireplace, when her foot slipped. In falling she caught hold of a kettle of boiling water standing on the fire and upset the coktents, which went completely over her. She was so frightfully scalded that, though taken to St. Bartholomew's Hospital and treated with every care, she died shortly after her admission. DEATH OF TOUCHSTONE.—This celebrated St. Ledger winner died at the Stud Farm, Eaton Hall, near Chester on Thursday week. Touchstone was the sire of more winners than any other sire at the stud. Touchstone ran four times in 1833, seven in 1834, eight in 1835, three in 1836, and once in 1837, making in all 23 starts, out of which he won 18 times, including seven walks over. £6,555 was the gross amount he netted for the exchequer of his noble owner, the Marquis of Westminster, besides two Apcot Gold Cups. THE IRISH BENCH. Saunàer, gives the following particulars as to the religious constitution of the Irish Beneh at the present time' Eight out of 12 of the Irish Common L'1w Judges are now Roman Catholics, includ- ing three chiefs—viz., Chief Justice Monahan (the Chief Baron), Judges O'Brien, Fitzgerald, Bell, and Keogh, and Barons Hughes and Deasy. The new Attorney Gene- ral being also a Roman Catholic, it is not improbable that, ere long, the proportion will be increased to three-fourths instead of two thirds. LAUNCH OF THE SPEEDWELL.—In accordance with Admiralty instructions, the screw steam vessel Speedwell, of 5 guns and 80-horse power engines, will be launched at Woolwich Dock to-morrow (Tuesday) afternoon. Her dimensions are as follows:- Length between perpendi- culars, 145 feet; ditto of keel for tonnage, 127 feet 10 inches; breadth extreme, 25 feet 4 inches; ditto for tonnage, 25 feet; ditto moulded, 24 feet 6 inches depth of hold, 13 feet; burthen in tons, 425 14 94. Her engines and screw machinery will be furnished by Menrs Day and Simmons, of Southampton: and her armament, to be supplied from Woolwich Arsenal, will consist of one 68-pounder pivot gun and four 24-pounder howitzers. FATAL RAILWAY AOOIDBNT.-Last Saturday night, when the last train for London reached Bishopstoke, on the South-Western line, from Dorchester, a man's cap was found on the engine. The next morning the man to whom the cap belonged was found about three miles below Bishopstoke, lying dead by the side of the rail, with his skull fractured, his left arm and ribs broken, and one foot cut off. The poor fellow was a pauper named Johnson. He must have been struck while crossing the rail, and his cap shaken off his head by the blow, and thrown upon the engine. It is carious that neither the engine-driver nor stoker noticed that any accident had happened. The income of a Chinese school master depends on the number of his pupils, they must not exceed fwanty; be- cause it is held that be cannot attend to a greater number with the necessary care. Every boy is bound to give his teacher the following articles—Rice, 50 Ib; for extra provisions, 300 cash lamp oil 1 catty (11 lb); lard, 1 catty; salt, I catty; and, besides, a sum of from II to 4 dollars, according to the boy's age and ability. The lessons are continued throughout the whole year, with only one month's holidays at the new year, when the engagement of the teacher always terminates, and a new contract must then be made.—DickerisAll The Year Round. RETIREMENT OF PROFESSOR WILSON FROM OXFORD.— The president ond fellows of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, have presented the Rev. John Matthias Wilson, B.D., fellow and dean of that society, member of the Hebdomadal Council, and professor of moral philosophy in the University, to the valuable living of Great Holland, Essex, rendered vacant by the death of the Rev. H. Rice. Mr Wilson graduated in Easter Term, 1836, as second classman in classical honours, and has held the office of vice-president of his college. He was public examiner 1844, 1845, and 1846, in Michaelmas term, 1850, and from Easter term, 1853, to Easter term, 1854. He was elected professor of moral philosophy in 1846 for four years, was re-elected for four years in 1851, and after the office had been vacant from 1856 to 1858, was appointed in the latter year for life. The value of Great Holland is more tha JEI.100 a-year.

PEMBROKE, PEMBROKE-DOCK, TENBY, MIL* FORD, AND WISTON. GENTLEMEN,—The lamented death ofyoutlate mem. ber, Sir John Owen, having caused a vacancy in t- representation of your boroughs, I venture to offer myself as a candidate for your suffrages. It is the duty of every man who seeks the support of an independent constituency to state unreservedly hie political principles.—I do so by declaring that mine are Conservative, and by them I shall steer my course. 1 am prepared to give my undivided attention Mil earnest support to the removal of those grievances which do unjustly affect many of my fellow subjects. Any measure tending to improve the moral or material condition of my poorer fellow countrymen, shall receive my warmest support. I ahall support all measures for maintaining this country, both by sea and land, in a perfect state of defeace, espe- cially our dock-yards and fortifications, believing ear Wooden Walls' and Forts to be the great safeguards of our country. My interests are so bound up with the prosperity of Milford Haven, that they will always be t. gtICIIN1&telaat I shall ever encourage the development of the great Com- mercial and Mercantile capabilities ol oar noble harbour. Gentlemen, business of importance which detained me in London, prevented my soliciting your suffrages at an earlier period; and I trust this unavoidable delay will not prove prejudicial to my interests. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your most obedient servant, THoiu. MEYRICK. Bush, 8th February, 1861.

=- connection with the interests—both £ olic and private—of the Constituency which seeks to represent. He tells us that he wT1 'support all measures for maintaining JJJJ country, both by sea and land, in a, proper fort'fl0^ <*efence> especially our Dockyards and ionR, believing our 'wooden walls' ^ts to be the safeguards of our country.' fo a not know how those who have an over- a action for French society may like such Patriotic declaration: it is quite possible that ch persons may consider it an insult and a j, ?nace to our Gallic neighbours, and a poor Vis^ *"0r ^ie favour bestowed upon English jators by the abolition of the odious system Passports; but to those who prefer a resi- .jtee in England—among their own country- such expressions will prove very accept- <sa 6' an^ w^en emanating, as they do in this tofrr+l from a person Avho has a home and pro- arirt lan<l which he desires to defend fclioL Preserve> will be received without the eolghtest misgivings as to their sincerity. The j^Uservativo party, with whom Mr. Meyrick connected himself, have always endea- 0^»*ed to maintain the defences of the country fo AiProPer footing, and have never given way, to ilie pUrposes of political aggrandizement. hy a demand for injudicious reduction made tie 1 Peace*at-any price faction, whose poli- jj creed is in some respects endorsed by Sir th \r- ^Wen> and who are now in alliance with jor'f rX^er whose policy he favours. The ma- do t the Dockyard operatives at Pembroke- can easily answer the question—Under Ministry have the interests of that and QJ* other naval establishments been most 4 Zance^ ? It is now generally admitted that able and indefatigable Minister than Of d,phn Packington never occupied the post ifSt Lord of the Admiralty, and it was his tenure of office that the first step ^"hat we may call our reactionary policy in rjjfard to naval matters was inaugurated. 6 Public can well recollect how the miserable CI?Peteilcy of the political partizans of Sir Pr F ^wen left the country without sufficient }»lv 0n' an(i how they endeavoured to sup- naval deficiencies by a shameful waste V Profuse expenditure of the public money. Neglected to maintain the requisite con- force in the Grovemment establish- tk^8' and when the period of danger arrived Mtk ^ere comPeHed to enter into engagements I'5* private contractors, from whose yards Were furnished with a batch of worthless, gunboats, which imperilled the lives of Seamen, and brought discredit upon us as V^tion, If the public establishments had managed with the ability that distin- the First Lord of the Admiralty under ^3* Derby's Government, these extravagant costly proceedings would have been Of l(^ed, and the Dockyards would in the hour kave been found fully competent to VjW the required number of wooden walls,' • Meyrick has very fittingly termed ^reat safeguards of our country.' The wJ/0 cau well remember, too, how Lord Pal- p^ton and the Liberal party scoffed at the to tjk°8a^ u^ade by Mr Horsman in reference defences of the Kingdom in 1859, when ^oble lord emitted his memorable sneer the rifle fever,' and that he then voted c: the very measure which ho himself ^jJfSht necessary to reproduce in the next n' when he found that the nation would place any confidence in the pacific assu- of the' Emperor of the French, and de- ^at ^ie country should be put in a defence. Yet, this is the poli- Of. ,^ergiversation and infidelity to principle Sir Hugh Owen is the representative, ^hich we are told it is his intention to ask ,V°n8tituency of Pembroke to endorse by tajpg him to Parliament. We cannot per- ourselves that old recollections' have t^5cient strength to swamp political convic- ^5' and hoist the Liberal candidate into a toj, ue formerly vacated: we are not prepared sJ*ch a contingency; and taking a more view of the claims of the respective Can- utes, we trugt that the electors will remem- ^^hen they are called upon to record their lieges, that one who is a resident in the Hl ^hood—whose interests are insepa- from their own,—is more likely to exert is to promote their welfare —because he N^^elf immediately concerned in its ad- ^y6lHent—than one who has no local con- —no common interests, and whose sym- 8 ^or l°cal prosperity are considerably i^ ^ed by a lengthened self-expatriation. 0^ Meyrick is an extensive resident land- and his conduct in this station has <sitk^8 heen unexceptionable, while as a 0(w his interest in the prosperity of the to ^hiency is exhibited in liberal donations Sheets of public utility. He has every the rapid advancement of the M^ oo^'hood, as may be gathered from his wherein he states:—'My interests bound up with the prosperity of Milford they will always be a guarantee JftK eball ever encourage the development Too6 great commercial and mercantile capa- ^L°f our noble harbour.' The addiess of is entirely devoid of ambiguous in it the electors have a clear k of the principles which will guide j^^Uct, and a frank avowal of the interests ^rous fostering, and they are also acquainted with the character of the ^j^^o whom they are asked to entrust their ^e^tation.
