PUBLIC GARDENS AND POLITICAL PUR- POSES. To the Editor of the SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS. SIR, I was very much astonished to find a large pla- card announcing a forthcoming soiree, prominently dis- played against the lodge wall, at the Sophia Gardens. A bill was also placed in the window, intimating that tickets might be purchased there. Being under the impression that the Gardens had been dedicated to the public, I was naturally surprised. But, upon enquiry, I was informed that the Agents of the Marquis of Bute leave no stone unturned with a view to make converts to their political creed. Now, I don't object to the display of energy and tact in the advancement of party purposes—indeed, I wish more were shown by the Liberals, with whom I have always voted-yet, nevertheless, it does seem to me that the turning of the lodge of a public garden—the com- mon resort of all classes and orders of the body politic- into an agency office of a Constitutional Association, as it is the custom now-a-days to call Tory organisations, is going very far beyond the legitimate range of political proselytism. --Yours, &c., Cardiff, March 5th, 1872.
