We entreat your Hap nourable House to believe that, in thus addressing you, we are innaenced by no spirit of innovation—we are all united in one foment of the warmest gratitude and attachment to his Majesty paternal solicitude he has evinced for our welfare, and of MVr n fidelity to our ancient and glorious Constitution, to give ability to which we again urgently implore the Members of your onourable House to give his Majesty's Ministers your most cor- 1 a 8?PPort in carrying the measure of Reform. your Petitioners will ever pray, &c.

THE PETITION tl6 Freeholders of Glamorganshire, agreed to at a County Meet- ,gans tre, "-V, convened by the High Sheriff of the said County, and held at the 23d day of March, 1831, Th sheweTH, Petitioners, though loyally attached to the Govern- J j r Country by King, Lords, and Commons, are firmly persuaded that a Reform in the Election of the Members of the ommons House of Parliament has become so undeniably neces- aa^ so generally called for by the nation, that it can no lon- «er be safely delayed.

To the Resident Householders and Burgesses of Stvansea, and the other Boroughs that will conjointly return a Member to the Commons House of Par- liament, under the proposed amended System of Re- presentation. ——— GENTLEMEN AND BROTHER TOWNSMEN,— HAVING received an Invitation, most respectably and nurnerousiv signed, to come forward asa Candidate for the Representation of SWANSEA and the adjacent Boroughs, in the event of the Bill for a Reform in the Constitution of the House of Commons being passed, and a Member granted to our ancient Town and the adjacent Boroughs,—I embrace the earliest opportunity of publicly expressing my thanks for your kind wishes, and the gratification such an Invitation has afforded me. A Seat in Parliament, constituted as the House of Commons has heretofore been, was never an object of mv ambition, and on several occasions, in the last twenty years, I have declined offer- ing myself as a Candidate when pressed to do so. The unsatisfactory and expensive proceedings at Elections were of themselves sufficient to deter most men from coming forward for the open and too frequently venal Boroughs—and, on the other hand, I freely confess I never yet could see any honour in repre- senting a few Mud Cottages or untenanted Walls, at a distance from one's residence and in which one could feel no personal in- terest. In my opinion, the honour to the Representative is in a numerous, independent, and respectable Constituency, such as your Member will have the honour of representing.; This brighter prospect, Gentlemen, that opens to our view in the plan of Reform brought forward by the existing Ministry, and sanctioned by his Majesty, when it becomes part of the Law of the Realm (as sooner or later it must be), will secure to all Classes and Interests a real and efficient Representation in Par- liament, by placing the Franchise in the hands of a Body too nu- merous and respectable to be corruptly influenced, and by so re- ducing the present enormous expenses of Elections, that indepen- dent Men will always be found ready to come forward to repre- sent the Wants, Interests, and Feelings of the Districts with which they may be connected. In the Members for Counties (whose numbers it is proposed considerably to increase) the Agricultural Interests will be amply represented and secured, whilst the populous and Commercial Towns, will send their Representatives, chosen freely by them- selves, to protect nnd watch over their Welfare and Individual Rights.—On this principle it is proposed that SWANSEA, con- jointly with certain other Boroughs, shall be detached from Cardiff and return a Member to Parliament; and should the Interests of this rapidly-increasing Town and District of Boroughs be entrusted to me, no exertion shall be wanting to prove that your confidence has not been misplaced; whilst on all Public Questions I trust I should always be found an honest, attentive, as I am sure I should be an independent, Representative of the People. So little is as yet known as to the details of the plan of Minis- ters with regard to the Boroughs to be connected with SWANSEA, that any particular reference to them might be considered prema- ture I can therefore only state, generally, that the Interests of the whole of my Constituents would meet with every attention in the event of my being returned to Parliament. I have the honour to remain, GENTLEMEN, Your truly obliged and faithful Servant, SINGLETON, 10th March, 1831. J. H. VIVIAN. TO THE Resident Householders and Burgesses of Swansea, Neath, Lloughor, Aberavon, and Kenfig. GENTLEMEN AND BROTHER-TOWNSMEN, ALLOW me to return you thus publicly my most heartfelt thanks for the independent, manly, and, I may al- most say, unanimous support my Cause has met with at your hands. The gratifying manner in which some of my old and intimate Friends at Swansea called me forward on the present important occasion, and the readiness with which so many highly respect- able names were added to the original Requisition, have made an impression on my mind which, let future circumstances be what they may, can never be effaced. Whilst I thus return my most sincere Thanks to my Fellow- Townsmen, the Inhabitants of Swansea, I feel I am also particu- larly indebted to our Friends and Allies at Neath for their flatter- ing reception and hearty promises of support, which leave no doubt of my ultimate success in the object of my ambition. To the many Resident Burgesses and Householders of Aber- avon, and the other Contributory Boroughs, who have promised me their support, I also return my sincere thanks. And in the event of my being the Representative in Parliament of this important District, I believe I need scarcely repeat every Interest shall have my impartial attention. I have the honour to remain, Gentlemen, Your truly obliged and faithful Servant, Singleton, March 17,1831. J. H. VIViAN.
SWANSEA, FRIDAY, MARCH 25. 1::7 We are requested to announce, that the BALL advertised to take place at the New Assembly Rooms, Llandovery, on the 20th instant, is unavoidably Postponed, and that future notice will be given of the next appointment.
GLAMORGANSHIRE REFORM MEETING. A Meeting, numerously and respectably attended, was held at Pyle Inn, on Wednesday last, which had been convened by the High Sheriff, in pursuance of the requisition of several Magistrates, to take into consideration the propriety of expressing to Parliament the sentiments of the county on the Reform Bill introduced into the House of Commons by Lord John Russell. In consequence of the absence of the High Sheriff, from indis- position, Mr. Cuthbertson, Solicitor, of Neath, the Deputy Sheriff, was called to the chair, who briefly stated the objects of the Meeting, and apologized for the absence of the High Sheriff, whose sentiments, he said, coincided with those of the requisitionists. Llewellyn Traherne, Esq. then rose to propose the first resolu- tion. He observed, that the Bill then before Parliament had been so fully discussed by the public, and so ably handled by the press, that he thought it quite unnecessary to occupy the time of the Meeting by enlarging upon the merits of the measure. Thomas Edmondes, Esq. stated that he felt great pleasure in se- conding the resolution. Upon the resolution being put from the chair, and stated to be carried unanimously, Mr. Thomas Thomas, of Swansea, apologized to the Meeting that so humble an individual as himself should interrupt the business of the day; but he begged to say, that the resolution was not carried unanimously, as he differed from the sentiments of the Meeting; and he desired to ask the gentlemen how they oould justify the taking away the vested rights of individuals in Corpo- rations? He thought they were as sacred as advowsons or bene- fices, and he should like to have that question answered. Col. Cameron immediately rose and said, he would answer Mr. Thomas by asking him a question and he begged to know whe- ther those vested rights were not conferred upon individuals for services of a venal and truckling nature to the Patron or Lord of the Borough? But the present Bill was framed to do away with vested rights based on corruption and venality. Mr. D. W. James, of Merthyr, spoke as follows Mr. Chair- man, in reference to Mr. Thomas's objection to the measure upop the principle of its interfering with vested rights and old usages, my impression is, that if these are never to be altered, we have no occasion for representatives at all. But, Sir, I have always considered that the true principles of legislation are, to protect the interests of the community at large, and to adopt such measures as are best calculated to promote the common weal; and that, to effect such purpose, private, and particularly hereditary, interests must give way and it was upon this principle—that the interests of the country demanded such a measure- that the greatest op- ponents of the present Reform Bill disfranchised the Irish forty- shilling freeholders." J. H. Vivian, Esq., in moving the second resolution, said that Ministers had nobly redeemed the pledge that they gave to the country on taking oflice. They had brought forward a plan of Parliamentary Reform, which, if carried into effect, wotild secure the people a sound and efficient Representation and by so doing they were entitled to the thanks, gratitude, and support of the British nation. The measure of Reform had been received by the whole nation with such unanimity and enthusiasm, and was in itself so consistent with common sense, and so calculated to satisfy the expectations of the people, that be would not enter- tain a doubt of its ultimate success, and he did not feel it ne- cessary to trespass on their time by entering on a subject that had been so ably and so fully discussed both in, and out of the House. There was, however, one objection that had been raised, to which he could not but allude, as he had heard it ad- vanced by friends, for whose opinions on most subjects he entertained the highest respect, and for whom, personally, he felt a sincere regard-it was, the danger of innovation,—that little short of revolution might be expected should the Bill pass into a law. Had he the slightest apprehension of such being the effect of the measure, he would be one of the last men to stand forward as its advocate. But the conviction on his mind was far different; he could view it in no other light than as calculated to restore confidence and tranquil- lity to the public by affording to all classes, capable from their stations in life of judging for themselves—a voice in the choice of their own Representatives. Who, he would ask, were the parties that under the amended system would be the Electors ? Could the most prejudiced affirm that they were those who had nothing to lose,—no interest In the State ? Of what men would the Com- mons House of Parliament be composed? In the first place, of Members for Counties (of whom the number was to be increased, and in that increase he hoped to see this enlightened and impor- tant County included) who were to be elected, as at present, by the Freeholders, with the addition of the Copyholders and Lease- hoders, to a certain amount-two classes of men greatly inte- rested in the State, and heretofore excluded from the right of voting. Such men were not likely to be Revolutionists. In fact, are not the County Members at present in the House, the most independent and important portion of it; and naturally so, as having been elected by the more numerous and respect- aW« Constituency. And, as to the numbers for the Towns, by whom were they to be chosen under the proposed system? By well educated resident Gentlemen, who, although not Free- holders, yet contribute to the exigences of the State, according to, their means, and by the respectable and industrious Trades- men, who are very deeply interested in the welfare of the [ country, and are particularly affected by the plans that come under the consideration of the House in the form of duties and protectious on home and foreign produce. Of the intelligence and good feeling of this class of Voters, he had lately had an oppor- tunity of judging; and he would boldly assert, that no man would be by them returned, who had not a deep interest in the State, or who was not acquainted with their local circumstances and in- terests. Morgan Poplcin Traherne, Esq., in seconding the resolution, declared that he most cordially agreed with it. Thomas Bates Rom, Esq., in proposing the third resolution, said, that the passing of the Reform Bill would give stability to the Throne, satisfaction to the people, and security to all our in- stitutions. The demand for Reform was now become so universal, that it was quite idle to oppose the public voice 999 out of a thousand were in favour of the measure, and he heartily concurred in the sentiments of the resolution. This resolution was seconded by John James Bassett, Esq. William Williams, Esq. of Aberpergwm, in moving the fourth resolution, spoke as follows:— T Were it not in obedience to the call of Gentlemen, for whom I entertain a high respect, I should not have ventured to obtrude myself on the attention of the Meeting; for if the great Master of Eloquence himself, as he assures us, never mounted the rostrum without experiencing sensations of nervous apprehension what must I feel at the unusual task of addressing a Public Assembly ? and so much has been said, and written on the subject of this day's discussion, that the imagination must be racked to suggest any new idea, or shed any additional light on what has been already so luminously treated.-(Heat., ltear.)- One of the arguments re- sorted to by those hostile to reform, for the continuance of the present system of corruption is, that it opens the door of the Council of the State to individuals of talent, whose pecuniary re- sources are too limited to obtain access to it, otherwise than by the purchase of a seat, or by subservience to the will of the Dictator who nominates them that is, the Country has the benefit of these Legislators either through an infraction of the law, or through a sacrifice of that manly independence, so becoming to a Senator, that dignity of character, which disdains the 'jurare in verba magistri.' It is lamentable to observe the illustrious Names they have been able to cite in support of their position but we have never yet been informed how many men there may have been, who, possessed of no less distinguished abilities, but-of a larger share of honourable pride, have scorned to court celebrity onjsuch conditions, preferring that their names should remain undei? the veil of phscurity, rather than display them sullied by the badge of servitude, or the stigma of putting their judgment in abeyance, or pursuing a line of policy condemned by their conscience— (clteers) ;-so that if the country have occasionally availled itself of pliant talent, ithas suffered a more than proportionate loss in the exclusion of enlightened integrity—(MMC& cheering );- but by the present plan of Reform, all these evils will be obviated the diminution of the expenses attending Elections will enable those to present themselves as Candidates who have been hitherto scared from the attempt, by the ruinous effects of contests and if hitherto, the door was too small to admit any but those who stooped, the arch will be soon sufficiently lofty for the triumph of the upright, and talent wifinad a way to it's proper station with- out passing under the caudihe yoke of bribery or power.—( Cheers.) -The opponents of all Reform, in deficiency of argument, have raised a cry of W oU:" when they cannot convince, they endea- vour to alarm the sober-minded, by alleging that this measure is a revolutionary.—Why, so is all nature the earth, the sun itself is revolutionary what is it that does not require the refreshing im- pulse of renovation ?—(cheers)—but if they mean- to say, that the passing this Bill will abridge a portion of our liberties, or impair the vigour of our Constitution, it is a fallacy for the consequences will be of a diametrically opposite tendency. —( Ch--ers. )- For my part, could I persuade myself of the dangers they represent, I certainly should, as an humble individual, be among the first to deprecate change for none can be more fully sensible of the ines- timable value of our institutions, than those, who have had oppor- tunities of personally forming comparisons between them and the existing state of other nations.-( Cheers. )- Let those, therefore, who persist in factions opposition to the unanimous wish of a de- termined people, reflect how deep a responsibility attaches to them. When once they have set in motion the vehicle that contains the welfare of the country, they will in vain attempt, (after a certain point), to arrest it's velocity down the declivity of Anarchy, with- out convulsion. They have heard it objected to by a Gentleman present, who is the only solitary instance of opposition to the unanimity of the Meeting, that the Reform Bill went to subvert the vested rights of certain individuals; now he, if a lawyer, would say that the Bill was in the form of an action of trover, to recover the lost Rights of the People of England.—(Much cheering.)— Impressed as I firmly am with these sentiments, I beg leave to propose the following address to his Majesty.—Immense cheering.) Lol. Cameron said, after the very able, luminous and compre- hensive speech they had just heard, he thought it would be useless in him to offer any observation on the subject; he would therefore satisfy himself by seconding the resolution. Walter Coffin, Esq., in an energetic address, proposed the fifth resolution, and exposed in strong terms the baneful influence of the Boroughmongers, who, he said, were the worst enemies of their country, and wherever their influence was felt, it blighted and destroyed the spirit and energies of the people;-an instance of which appeared in the Borough of Minehead, which, when free and unshackled by Boroughmongering influence, was a spirit- stirring, thriving port. Bnt what is it now? Borough-ridden, and sunk into insignificance and poverty, with the losS ofits trade and independence. You have heard objections made to the Reform Bill, as depriving men of vested rights in Boroughs. He thought it was redressing wrongs. An instance of the practical good ef- fects of the Reform Bill h|d already manifested itself in a Bo- rough of this county, by th# selection of a gentleman to represent it on account of his qualifications alone and without reference to interested motives, bat as a reward for his public spirited exer- tions in promoting the welfare and commercial prosperity of Swansea. Morgan Price Smith, Esq. seconded this resolution. Calvert Richard Jones, Esq. in moving the sixth resolution, said in nine a I IC that it gave him much gratification, in so large and respectable a Meeting as that which he had the honour of addressing, to find such perfect unanimity prevail.—( Cries of no, no.)—With the ex- ception, then, of one dissentient voice. He did not, however despair that their opponent, on njaturer deliberation, might be in- duced to join in the opinion of his friends. So great and so evi- dent were the advantages to be derived from the measure now before Parliament, that he felt fully convinced, were the whole country present, the resolutions hitherto proposed and adopted would be carried by a most overwhelming majority. The resolution was seconded by H. Seymour, Esq, In moving and seconding the other resolutions, the Meeting was briefly addressed by J. Moggridge, Esq. and Robert Savours, Esq. • and apologies for the unavoidable absence of J. J. Guest, Esq. M jp! and Dr. Lisle, were offered to the Meeting by Walter Collin Esq! The Deputy Sheriff, on quitting the chair, expressed his cordiai concurrence in the resolutions that had been adopted, and good- humouredly intimated, that he had no wish to participate with Mr. Thomas in the solitude he had chosen when the Meeting separated, much pleased with the proceedings of the day. PARLIAMENTARY REFORM.—The Meetings which have already been held in Wales on this important subject, shew most unequivocally the sentiments of the people in favour of the mea- sure. We are rejoiced to find, that a Meeting of the County of Carmarthen will take place on Tuesday next, to express the con- currence of that populous and important portion of the Princi- PaH.in raSn/8 Py,°P°sed by his Majesty's Government. A similar Meeting of the fown of Swansea, we are gratified to see, has been convened by the Portreeve, Charles Collins Esa for Monday next.—See advts.
LOSS OF THE FROLIC STEAM PACKET. In a small part of our last week's impression we an- nounced the above afflictive and melancholy intelligence, which occurred on the passage of the vessel from Haverfordwest to JBristol on the night of Wednesday se'nnight; when every soul on board perished. The scene of this most distressing event, was the Nass Sands, on the coast of this county, a short distance from wbridge. She was of large size, of 80-horse power, com- manded by Capt. Jenkins, a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy, and had a full and competent crew, together with an experienced channel pilot, so that the accident must be ascribed to the dark, dirty, and tempestuous weather which prevailed at the time.— Passengers from Milford, Tenby, and the surrounding country, usually came by the Frolic, and we are sorry to say, that she had a greater number of passengers by this trip than usual. It is im- possible to state accurately how many were on board, and there are very contradictory reports in circulation but from the best information we can collect, the number of passengers is estimated to be about forty, and the crew fifteen. Sixteen bodies, it is stated have been picked up. The Captain was found lashed to the rigging, and his watch had stopped at a few minutes before four, about which time it is supposed the accident happened. From the circumstance of the Captain being discovered as de- scribed, it has been thought that lie must have existed some time after the vessel struck but nautical men are of opinion that she must have gone over almost instantly after taking the sands.— The body of Miss Henderson, eldest daughter of W. Henderson, Esq. (Contractor for the works at Hobb s Point), was found by her friends on Sunday last, with her two trunks beside her. She was buried at Cowbridge on Wednesday. The body of her brother, a fine young man about 22, has not yet been discovered. The Captain and steward (Richards) belonged to Haverfordwest, where the following persons embarked:—Mr. James Griffiths, currier, of Prendergast; Mr. James Lloyd, late butler to R. J. Ackland, Esq. of Boulston Mr. Geo. Evans, of Haverfordwest; Mr. John Bartham, of London, late of Lawrenny, near Pembroke; Mr. W. Griffiths, of Pentepark Mill, near Haverfordwest Ann verf Griffiths, of Portfield, near Haverfordwest; two servants from Picton Castle and three seamen from the neighbourhood of Fishguard, uamed Davies, Dunn, and Moore. Off H. M. Dock- yard, Pembroke, the only son and eldest daughter of W. Hender- son, Esq,; and three young men of the names of Bennett, Richards, and George. At Mitfbrd, Miss Legge, a fine young woman, about 18 years of age, accompanied by Mrs. Reynish, of that town; also Mrs. Hardway and Mr. Jenkins, late housemaid and butler at Castle Ball. At Tenby, Gen. M'Leod (late of the 1st Royal Regiment of Foot), Col. Gordon (late of the Queen's Bays) and servant, Mrs. Col. Boyd, Mrs. Richardson, and seven or eight others, names unknown. We have now completed the melancholy list, as far as our means of information and the nature of the dis- astrous occurrence will admit. It ia impossible to describe the distress that prevails in the places we have enumerated, in con- sequence of the loss of friends sustained by this unfortunate event. One of the Captain's children was buried on Saturday morning, just after the intelligence had arrived at Haverfordwest, and he lias left eight alive,_and Mrs. Jenkins in the family wav. The 0 steward has left a wife and four young children totally unprovided for; but the inhabitants of Haverfordwest, with their usual promptness to succour the distressed, have largely contributed to their relief. Lord James Stuart presented the Neath Petition in fa- vour of the Ministerial Reform Bill to the House of Commons on Monday last; and his Lordship and the Member for the County, C. R. M. Talbot, Esq., have promised to support the measure. His Majesty has been graciously pleased to patronize Mr. Lauder's forthcoming work upon British Timber. Their Royal Highnesses the Dukes of Cambridge and Gloucester, together with her Royal Highness the Duchess of Kent, and a large list of the most distinguished of the Nobility and Gentry in the king- dom, are among its supporters. t I°nTTuesday last, a sumptuous entertainment was given by John L. Puxley, Esq., to his tenantry in Carmarthenshire, on the arrival of his Son with his amiable Bride at Lletherllestry-House (the father's residence) from their seat at Dunboy, Ireland.— èwrw da and punch flowed abundantly, and the evening was spent in the highest conviviality. The CarmartltenshireMilitia finished their period of train- tag on Tuesday last. On the preceding day they went through their various manoeuvres of marching and counter-marching in a creditable manner. The above regiment were notfurnished with fire-locks during their period of training, nor were the attractives of red coats awarded them, being entirely in undress during the whole -time.-a circumstance never before remembered. Eco- nomy is the order of the day, we should infer from this, with Go- vernment. The behaviour of the regiment during the above period was such as merited the praise of the public. Mr. Ryan's equestrian company have hitherto been very well supported at Carmarthen, and have given much satisfaction. On Monday last, being Mr. R.'s first appearance there, with an entire change of performance, the place was literally crammed. At the last meeting of the lirecotishire Turnpike Trustees, a resolution, worthy of imitation by other Trusts, was agreed to, on the motion of the Rev. Thomas John Powell, that the Surveyor of the Trust do employ the paupers of the several parishes through which t! e turnpike-road passes, upon application to him by the overseers of the poor. The Brecon Assizes commenced on Saturday last. About four o'clock in the evening a large party of gentlemen (among whom we noticed Henry Allen, Esq. the Chairman of the Brecon- shire Quarter Sessions, Hugh Bold, Esq. the Recorder of Brecon, the Rev. Richard Davies, Archdeacon of Brecon, Penry Williams, Esq. Lloyd Vaughan Watkins, Esq. Charles Claude Cliftonr, Esq. theRev. Thomas Williams, the Bailiff of Brecon, John Lloyd, Esq. Major Price, the Rev. Thomas John Powell, the Rev. Hugh Bold, &c. &c.) and nearly the whole of the tradespeople of Brecon, having previously dined at the Castle Hotel and Swan Inn, accom- panied, in numerous carriages and on horseback, the High Sheriff, Ebenezer Fuller Maitland, Esq. about three miles on the Carmar- then road, for the purpose of meeting, and escorting into the town, Mr. Baron Bolland, the first Judge who has attended the South Wales Circuit since the abolition of the Welsh Judicature. On arriving at Brecon the Commission was opened in due form, and the Court was adjourned until Monday morning. On Sunday his Lordship attended divine, service at St. Mary's CHurch, when the Rev. S. W. Maitland, of Gloucester, M. A. (the Sheriff's Chap- lain) preached a most impressive sermon to a crowded congrega- tion. On Monday morning the Grand Jury (23 in number), of whom Penry Williams, Esq. of Penpont, was foreman, were sworn, and the Learned Judge delivered a most eloquent address, in which he stated that he should remember the gratification he felt to the last day of his existence, in being appointed one of the first English Judges to preside in Wales, and at the great mark of re- spect that had been paid to him in each of the Welsh counties where he had hitherto been. He said he was most happy in having to inform the Jury that he saw in the calendar no case that required his particular notice, and he complimented the inhabitants of the Principality on the paucity of crime in their country. His Lord- ship added, that the wish of the Legislature had been to benefit Wales, and from the report Mr. Chief Justice Tyndal and himself should feel it their duty to make, he was quite sure that further improvements would be made. There were three prisoners tried on Monday, namely, Selina Valentine, for stealing money from John Perkins, John Moore, for a larceny at Coedycymmar;, and John Dickson for stealing shirts. The three were found guilty. On Tuesday, the whole day was occupied in the trial of Thomas Williams, on a charge of sheep-stealing —The prisoner was acquitted. A great number of witnesses of great re- spectability gave him a most excellent character. On Wed- nesday morning the only cause entered was tried.-It was an action brought by Messrs. Gorton and Johnson of London; tea- dealers, against a Mr. Thomas Lewis, of Crickhowell, in Brecon- shIre, to recover the value of a chest of tea, alleged to have been sold by the plaintiff to the defendant, but which the defendant denied, and a verdict was given in his favour.—On Wednesday Evan Evans, for breaking and entering into a dwelling-honse in the parish of Ystradgunlais, and stealing guineas and sovereigns thereout, was found guilty, and sentence of death was recorded Thomas Jones, for stealing potatoes, was found guilty, and he and Selina Valentine, John Moore and John Dickson, tried on Monday, were severally sentenced to one year's Imprisonment and hard labour; and James Haynes, charged with uttering falseforged orders, was acquitted.-The indictment against Morgan Morgans, for stealing wheat was ignored.-The Learned Judge left Brecon on Thursday morning for Presteign, where the Commission was to be opened in the evening. Two bales of cotton wool were picked up at sea, about seven miles to the eastward of the Smalls, on Saturday last, by the schooner Peter and Mary of Youghall. The wool is lodged at the Custom House, Swansea, for the benefit of the parties in- terested and security of the duties. The bales being wet, there are at present no visible marks whereby the property may be identified but it is supposed to be the produce of America. Peter Charters, lately a constable at Merthyr-Tydfil, has v!e? comm'"edtoCardiff Gaol, under the 7th and 8th of Geo. IV. ^or o^ta'niig money under false pretences. This person and a man known as" John the Cobbler" have been the terror of the houses licensed under the new Beer Act. Having done all the business they could at Merthyr, they have been lately on the look-out in the counties of Brecon and Monmouth. In the pre- sent instance, P. Charters extorted a sum of money from a poor woman at Merthyr, by telling her that a warrant was then in the hands of the constable against her (no such warrant existing), and advising her by all means to settle, without coming before the Ma- gistrates, to whom she bad been reported for various irregula- rities." Large sums have no doubt been extorted in this nefarious mauner at Merthyr, where there are nearly 70 public-houses, and nearly 100 beer-houses. It is high time, therefore, that a stop should be put to such nefarious proceedings. There has not been exhibited so fine a display of fat stock bt.Cowbridge for some years as was offered for sale at the fair held there on Tuesday. The sale was rather dull, and prices did not exceed from5d.to6d. per lb. Store cattle sold at tolerable prices SALUBRITY OF THE GLAMORGANSHIRE HiLLS.—A per- son, by standing near the lowest yew-tree in the churchyard at Aberdare, may perceive recorded the deaths of 30 persons, whose ages average 85 years, all buried within the last 50 years. It may be worthy of remark, that in that number are included men emi- nent for their ability and usefulness; and, among others, may be noticed, the Rev. Owen Rees, the Rev. Edward Evan, the Bard of Toncoch. who died at the age of 85 years, in the year 1802 andthatexcellentman, Mr. Theophilus Richards, of Blaengwawr, who from a ploughboy, by his industry, probity, and talents as a drover, amassed a considerable fortune.—'He died at the great age of 90 years in 1797. CLIFTON SUSPENSION BRIDGE.^—This undertaking, so long talked of, is now about to be commenced in real earnest: fa- voured by the assistance and advice of D. Gilbert, Esq., (late president of the Royal Society,) the Trustees have determined on adopting the plan of Mr. Brunell, Jun. and have appointed him their engineer for the erection of the bridge. The plan is to be 600 feet, and instead of pillars, piers will be adopted. We have not seen Mr. Brunell's plan, and of course cannot speak to its merits. The subscriptions in hand amount to 31,0001. In severe Colds, Rheumatism, &c. from which num- bers suffer so severely, particularly duriut; lite Winter Months. a more sututary Remedy cairiot be resorted to. or one that has effected more extraordinary Cures than the Genuine Bateman's Pectoral Drops, which may be had of most respectable Medicine I Venders en her HI Town or Country.

THE REFORM BILL. To the EDITPR of The CAMBRIAN. SIR,—I rejoice to hear the voice of the Principality respond so audibly to that of the rest of the nation in demand of the great Bill of RightSi which is about to be granted to us. The general cryis so loud- the demand is so reasonable-that in spite of all .the barriers which cor- ruption and prejudice are attempting to interpose, we may now consider the haven of justice already entered—the threshold of liberty already won. Our patriot King applauds the measure, his Ministers suggest it, his people need and seek it; who then, we may well ask, are daring to gainsay it ? A glance at the Members who took part in the discussion on the second reading of the Bill will furnish some solution of the problem. Thirty out of forty, who spoke in its favour, were Representatives of counties or open places; bat when we look to its opponents—what a reverse does the picture display Only three Coanty Members had the hardihood to ad- vocate the cause of corruption; and of the others who pursued the same reckless course, scarcely any had constituents to consult or to fear, but had merely to obey the dictates of their own self-interest, or the man- dates of some equally interested patron. This view will: display an intel- ligible sample of the quality of the opposition from the divison on Tues- day, on the second reading, we are enabled to ascertain its numbers also. Let it be well understood, that all the three hundred and one, who bad the audacity to avow their opposition to the just Bill in its present stage, by those votes avowed their opposition to its very principles--even to Reform of any sort. As to those who had the honour and happiness of being ranked in the majority, we have only to hope they will remain unanimous and sincere in the support they have already given, whether or not it be de- termined to have recourse to what, at all events, will ensure success— an appeal to the people. I remain, yours, &c. 24th March, 1831. A BRBCOMAN.
REFORM. To the EDITOR of The CAMBRIA N. SlR,—Allow me, through the medium of your widelycirculated and impartial paper, to second the appeal made by your Correspondent, Breconian,' to the inhabitants of places that have not already come for- ward to petition in favour of the grand measure of Reform now in con- templation. I more particularly call the attention of the inhabitants of Carmarthenshire to this appeal. All individually cry out for Reform-all individually are delighted at the thoughts of the grand measure of Reform proposed to us-and all individually would lend a helping hand to crush all unfair, unconstitutional, and undue influence, of either the Aristocracy or the Boroughmongers;—yet, for all this, I am grieved not to see any movement made in this county, as a body, to aid the endeavours of his Majesty's Ministers in this so much wished for and, I hope, not far distant change. Little remains to be said or urged on this all-exciting topic, and I hope, as an inhabitant of this county, that it will not leave itself remain to be pointed at with the finger of scorn, of pity, or contempt, as the only one, on the large map of England and Wales, not patriotic or independent enough to assert its rights and utter its sentiments openly, publicly, and in a body, as the inhabitants would singly and individually do. Sorry should I be to see it descend to the condition of a drone, and be content to wallow and to riot in the benefits and advantages got by others' exer- tions, and remain in listless inactivity and degrading supineness itself. How, if we do not give publicity to our wishes and our necessities our- selves, can our Ministers or our Representatives know our grievances or commute our hardships ? How can we expect them to find out what may be beneficial to ourselves, or to anticipate our wants, if we do not our- selves inform them? How can we expect even our own Member to give us his assistance on this most momentous question, if, by our silence-our miserable, degraded, and slavish acquiescence in things as they are, we acquaint him not with what we desire ? If, as our Member is, and pro- fesses himself to be, the organ of the voice of his constituents, he votes against this measure of Reform, with what right-with what propriety or decency could we question the vote he gives "f If we have not ourselves the manliness to come forward and say what we require, what can he presume but that we are content that the nation be mis-represented, or rather not represented at all ? and in what could we blame him for giving his voice with, as he might reasonably and rationally suppose from their silence, the sentiments and wishes of his constituents ? But though I urire this as a motive for exertion on the part of the gentlemen of this county, I do not for a moment suppose our worthy Member will so far forget the welfare of his county, the independence of his station, and the good of his country, as by his vote to support, or endeavour to support, the present state of bribery, corruption, and expensive (and, consequently, not free) elections; I do not think he will lend his aid to thwart the hopes, the wishes, and the prayers of the nation but if we do not exert ourselves, if we do not make known what we require, what ought we to expect or to receive ? I trust, however, we shall not long remain inactive, indolent lookers-on, but raise our voices in aid of this salutary, benefici.il, and be- nevolent measure; that we will put our shoulders to the wheel, and ask, that we may be given. Yours, obediently, Llandilo, March 22. ONE OF THE PEOPLE. [We are happy to perceive that the Gentlemen of Carmarthenshire need not the stimulus of our Correspondent's call to their patriotic feeling. A meeting has been convened by the High Shcriit, On the requisition of some of the most respectable and independent Freeholders of the county, to be held at Carmarthen on Tuesday next.]
To our Correspondent who arrogantly assumes the signature of PP'as>" reply in the energetic words of a London print— The enemy of Reform at a crisis like this is either so foolish as to Is be below reason, or so wicked that he is not to be reasoned with." t:T Several Communications are omitted for want of room.
