THE LATE ELECTION FOR THE BOROUGHS. [TO THE EDITOR.] SIR, -lIaving read a letter in the London Times, purporting to be the production of a person who signs himself William Partridge," stating that Mr. Crawshay Bailey entirely set his face against bribery, at the last election, either direct or indirect—his words being, I will win my election fairly, or not at all," —directions which were implicitly followed by his committee, it appears to me that Mr. William Partridge knows but little abont Mr. Bailey's election; or if he does, lie is determined to defend corruption and bribery, by assertions the most incorrect. I am prepared to prove that bribes were offered to some electors, who would not deniean^hemselves by accepting them but, doubtless, those bribes^vere accepted by others, more corrupt, eagerly waiting for the chance. Now, sir, I am one of those who were tempted with a good round sum,-that is, I was offered £ 80 the night before the polling day, provided I would vote for Mr. Crawshay Bailey; and likewise, on the day of election, at about ten o'clock, two other parties called upon me, and offered me the price of three barrels of beer, provided I would vote for that gentleman. I am prepared, if required, to give the names of the parties who so tempted me to vote against my conscience; and I believe two of them to have been on Mr. Bailey's committee. I merely mention the above facts, in order to show that Mr. William Partridge must have been entirely ignorant of what was going on at the election, or else he was determined, in the face of truth, to descend to incorrect statements. I remain, Sir, yours truly, JAMES HORNER, SEXR. Cardiff-Road, Newport, April 21, 1852. [The above communication was unavoidably omitted last week.—ED. M.M ]
