SWANSEA HARBOUR TRUST ELECTION. The election of four proprietary trustees, under the Swansea Harbour Act, 1854, took place yesterday. A Bpirited contest was maintained throughout the day. A very old and worthy member, Mr. CIIAELES HENRY Smith, of Swansea Vale, has lost his seat, and Mr. CORY, of the firm of COlty, YEO, & Co., has been re- turned in his place. It is not an exaggeration to say that the election of the latter gentleman will be of the Neatest possible advantage to the port. The polling Was as follows:- H. H. Vivian. 298 T.Cory. 235 S- Benson 271 C. H. Smith 188 J- P. Budd 251 hen we take into consideration the importance of the duties delegated to this Board, and the necessity of adequately providing for the safety and accommodation of ships entering the harbour, the town may be con- gratulated upon having secured the services of able and thoroughly competent practical men.
