The Election Literature of Glamorgan. (Contmued from last issue.) The Election following the death of George III. in 1820 brought three candidates into the ficld-Cole, the former member, Edwards, and Grey. Of this election I heard much from my father and other old people who attended the 'Election, but not to vote. It was important on the days of the- Election who should make the greatest display, and a good deal of horse play was indulged in. The public-houses were free to all-during these days, and food provided at the expense of the candidates for their supporters, and fights were many, and the champions in these kind of combats was next in popularity to the candidate who succeeded in gaining the greatest number of votes at the poll. Besides letters and poetical effusions printed in support of a certain candidate and against all others inserted in the Cambrian," all rather heated productions, we will give the following as a fair example of what appeared at this contest—perhaps the most memorable during the whole of the last century in Glam- organshire :— Edwards was sfct up as a Welshman, but he was born at Lambeth the certificate of the "registration of his birth in that parish is m- serted in the paper. The following prose squibs also appears in fcht Cambrian '—" Bridgend fair was well attended on Thursday, the 24th past; our report was too late for last' Cambrian.' There were only two candidates for the prize to be given this month a third was expected. The Cornish bull (Sir C; Cole) was much blown up by the judges, his sulky appearance was against him. The bulk of the beast was considered ill adapted for the Welsh market. The butchers who knew the taste of the natives thought the flesh coarse, and better adapted for t he navy than for home consumpy tion. There is no chance of his becoming & favourite in this county. The moving so heavy an animal is expensive, and he cannot stir at all by himself, and subfecriprtionhas been entered into by some of his admirers of large breeds of cattle to bring him round and show him at Bridgend. The Stafford did not appear (the Ron. W. Boc^fchjGrey), Ms constitution being tender his p^triAster keeps him quiet as passible against" the show. He is said to be a good- natifc^ eas^ B^ast, and well adapted to the purposesof husbandry." The true Glamorgan (Edwards) was uni- versally admiredand engrossed the attention of farmers. The figure and activity of this animal was considered admirably adapted to the country .indeed but one opinion prevailed as to the certainty of his success at Bridgend. He is an excellent worker, quick and lively in his movements. The horses in this county be^ng much em-' ployed in mining and commercialpursuits, this animal will prove a great acquisition. It was attempted to be said by the owners of the Cornish boll that the blood of this animal was not pure. but the insinuation failed, and there is not a doub^ of his gaining the prize." I The polling began Thursday, March 16th. "1820, and ended on the 23rd. The first state- ment of the result gave Edwards a majority of four over Cote, Grey having withdrawn from the contest on the 18th March on the strength of this Edwards came forward and thanked the electors for the honour conferred npon hMn. However, a Gloser examination of the poll books showed that Co*e had been elected-aftd-returned by a majority of 135 votes. ■Sir Christopher Cole passed the end of his life in, retirement, and died at Lanelaj, near Llantrisant, August 24th, 1836. Several poems are extant addressed to him in very affection- ate language .by some of our local poets—one upon his defeat in 1828, in which appear the following lines :— .(.. While others haste to hail the rising son. And pay their homage at the golden shrine, My humble lay shall flow in praise of one, Who like the 4 Roman more than half divine,' Scorns the applause of the crowds Cole born to shine Amid the mighty, mightiest! wise and true, rorwed to command and destined to subdue, jNobte alike in Council and in Field With head to plan and arm the sward to wield, And tongue to speak, and soul too great a prize, Aught but the praises of the good and wise, After his. death was written of him. The frtend, the benefactor—now no more— May jqstly claim the mourning tear that's shed The only iheense gratitude can pour, The sweet, remembrance of the hallowed dead."
