7'0 the Independent Electors of the County of Carmarthen. GENTLEMEN, 7-THE trust which was confided to me in so fiat- taring a manner of representing this County in Parliament, will era long be restored to ynu, and you will consequently be called upon to exercise the important privilege which will hencefonvanl be enjoyed by you, of selecting two Individuals to express your political opinions in a Reformed Parliament. le My principles are well known to you,—I have advocated Reform '.Ii'u and Retrenchment in every department of the State. I have proved myself to be the Enemy of Slavery, by my vote in favour of 11fr. Buxton's recent motion for its abolition; and, as I deem it right that you should be made acquainted ivith my opinions upon some of the leading topics of political discussion, I beg to state, that a Reform in the Church, a Commutation of Tithes, the extinction of all Monopolies that are warranted by sound policy, as well as of useless Places, unmerited Pensions, and Sinecures, are a course of measures which I anticipate the perfection of with unfeigned satisfaction and which must be secured, if the Electors of this Empire will with fearless integrity of purpose avail themselves of the opportunity now afforded them, of choosing a House of Commons that will boldly perform its duty to the nation at large. As an independent Man, anxious that the Country should thoroughly reap the jidl benefit conferred upon it by that great Charter which has recently confirmed its in the free enjoyment of our constitutional riqhts, I solicit your suffrages and if by a continuance of your for- tis. kindness I should become one of the objects of your choice, I can safely assure you, that the zeal and exertion which it has hitherto been my study to evince in your service, will accompany my future en- deavours to promote yonr real and truest interests. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Your faithful and obliged Servant, JAMES WILLIAMS. Edtvinsford, August 24th, 1832. To the Independent Electors of the County of Carmarthen. GENTLEMEN, SINCE my last Address was offered to your —— notice, I have been led to fear that much misapprehension exists in reference to the course which I may adopt as an individual in regard to the views of the other Candidates for the Representation of this County. Having hitherto so decidedly expressed, and I trust acted upon the principles I have invariably professed, I could scarcely have conceived that I should have been looked upon as the Supporter of any Person opposed to my own avowed political sentiments, nor should I have con- siaered myself justified, after having obtained support as an indepen- dent Man, in attempting to bias your opinions in the selection of another Candidate, as I conceive any course in the nature of a Coali- tion to be totally inconsistent with that freedom of choice which the Electors have all undoubted right to exercise. When, however, a Candidate professing liberal principles, declared himself, I felt it to be my ditty to give my Vote in his favour but, in in reference to my Tenantry, although some have blamed me for not influencing their Votes, I beg to state that I have long since informed them that they are to consider themselves at liberty to vote as they may feel disposed, without any interference on my part .-Freedom has been my object in advocating Reform— Ought I to deny it to them ? I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Your faithful and obliged Servant Carmarthen, August 25th, 1832. JAMES WILLIAMS. To the Gentry, Clergy, Freeholders, and other Electors, of the County of Carmarthen. GENTLEMEN, HA VING been called upon by a most numerous •* and respectable body of the Constituency of Carmarthenshire, to come forward at the ensuing General Election, and to offer my Services as one of its Representatives in Parliament, I shall not hesi- tate to do so whenever the Dissolution takes place. To those who have thus honoured me, my best thanks are due, and to them, as to the Electors generally, I beg to state that if I am successful, nothing shall be wanting on niy part to merit the confidence reposed in me. After the excitement which has prevailed on the subject of Parlia- mentary Reform, I am most anxious that nothing I may say should tend to bring back sueh a state of feeling, I shall therefore Ito fay-ther allude to that than to say, that as the Reform Act is now the law of the land, it shall have as such my support, and my assist- ance in the working of its different provisions. It appears to me that the Corn Laws are certain to become an early object of discussion in the next Parliamant, I am anxious therefore to state that it is- my duty, as it is my inclination, during that discussion, to support the Agricultural Interest to the very utmost, and to give it every protection it may seem to require. With regard to the diminution of the Public Burthens, I beg to say, that I am as desirous of diminishing them as any one can be, more particularly those that press most upon the Agriculture of the country and whenever any proposal is made to do so, I shall. support it, pro- vided the revenue is able to bear the loss without risk to the national credit. I now take my leave, and hope at a very early period to pay my re- spects to you in person. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Your most obedient Servant, GEO. RICE TREVOR. Dynevor Castle, August 20th, 1832. Carmarthenshire Election. WE, the undersigned FREEHOLDERS of the COUNTY of CARMARTHEN, having this day been assured by the Honorable Colonel RICE TREVOR, that although he must decline giving Pledges on the subject of his Conduct in the ensuing Parliament, should he become a Member of it, yet that his sentiments.are decidedly in favor of giving every support to the Agricultural Interest, and to the Maintenance of the Corn Laws of repealing the Duty on Malt; of an immediate Amelio- ration of the Condition of the Slaves in the Colonies, and of the Abolition of Slavery, when it can be effected with due regard to the interest of the Slaves themselves, and of our Colonial Posses- sions; and of a just and equitable Commutation of Tithes; agree to SUPPORT HIM as a CANDIDATE for the COUNTY of CARMARTHEN, and pledge ourselves to use our utmost efforts to secure his e!ection.28th August, 1832.

GENTLEMEN, .11 Requisition having been made to me for the purpose, by a numerous and respectable body of Electors, I beg to offer myself as a Candidate for the honour of being one of your Representatives in the ensuing Parliament: anil I seek your suf- frages as a Man of Independent Principles, and as a sincere, ge- nuine Reformer, who has in view the utter Abolition of all Mono- polies and Sinecure Appointments, to lessen the Taxes, to repeal those Laws which fetter the Industry, Capital, Agriculture, and Com- merce of the State, to abolish Negro Slavery, and especially, to advance Civil and Religious Liberty,—the opportunity to accomplish all of which objects is now completely opened to us by the Reform Bill, enabling the Nation to form. a House of Commons wholly com- posed of Members devoted to those purposes; but that great advan- tage will be entirely lost, to this County, if, by electing one Anti- lieformen or supporter of present Burthens and Oppressions to be either of our Members, we enable him to oppose and to thwart the ex- ertions of our other Member in obtaining a redress of grievances: 1Jote of the one would be continually counterbalanced by that of other; and the voice of the County be thereby rendered as ab- solutely of no effect whatsoever in determining any question before Parliament, as if we had no Member at all to represent us. On every subject, I consider it to be the duty of a Representative to abide by the wishes, and to strive to obtain the objects, of his Cons t i tuents;-so that my vote in Parliament would always be regu- lated by your sentiments, whereby I should hope my conduct would invariably meet with your approbation, which would be the highest object of my ambition. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient humble Servant, Middleton-Hall, Aug. 17,1832. ED W. II. ADAMS. Representation of Carmarthenshire. MR.
