WEST CARMARTHEN. RETURN OF MR POWELL. The ballot boxes from the 21 polling stations in the Western Division of Carmarthenshire were brought to Carmarthen during Wednesday night, the last (that from Llanboiuy) arriving just before ten o'clock on Thursday morning, when the counting at once began. The result was declared at 3 p.m. The figures first announced were Powell, 4,566; Emiyn, 2,940 but two votes were subsequently allowed to each candidate, and the final announcement was Walter Hice Howell Powell 4568 Viscount Emlyn 2942. Liberal majority 1626 -1 -_& xue result was declared from tue balcony 01 the Shirehall by the deputy-sheriff (Mr D. Long Price), and was received with cheers by a large crowd who had gathered in the square. Mr POWELL, the successful candidate, who was accompanied by several of his supporters, then returned thanks, and was greeted with renewed cheers. He said he desired to express heartfelt gratitude to those friends who had worked to secure his return against the odds which were ranged against them. Amongst the things they had to contend with was the foolish cry of Pro- tection," of the Church in danger" from tiie pulpits, and of undue pressure — (A voice You are in whatever") put upon tenant farmers that be knew of by landlords and agents. His commit- toes and friends bad had much to daunt them, but they had acted according to their convictions, and he hoped they had now for ever put an end to Toryism in that county—(applause)—for he ex- pected that his friend, Mr Pugh, would have a much larger majority to-morrow in the Eastern Division. Wales had behaved true so far, and be hopei that South Wale; would not return a sintrie Conservative to the House of Commons. (Hear, hear.) In himself they had a warm sup- porter of tiie G.O.iNi.(applatise)-and they might depend upon it that when the "Dyn Bach o Maesgwyune "—(cheers)—was unable, through want ot health aiia strength, to represent then!, lie would resign into their hands the trust they had reposed in liim, and help them to secure the return of another Liberal in that division. (Cheers.) For himself, his guiding principle ever would be the greatest happiness for the greatest number, equal laws for rich and poor, and the government of the people by the people. (Loud applause.) Sub- sequently Mr Powell again appeared on the balcony, and, in moving a vote 01 thanks to the High Sheriff (Sir James Drummoud, Bart.), and the deputy sheriff, said he hoped that his noble opponent was able to say that he (Mr Powell) had not spoken one disrespectful word or said an Unkind thing about him during the whole contest. He had a g'eat esteem for Lord Ernlyn in his private capacity, and hoped always to retain the honour of his friendship and ralpect. Rev. J. JONES, Felinfoel, seconded the vote of thanks in Welsh. Alderman W ARREK, chairman of Mr Powell's central committee, thanked the electors for the way they bad acted, and asked them in that moment of victory to behave themselves quietly and decently. The vota of thanks having been accorded amid applause, cheers wer given to: the Dyn Lach o Maesgwynne," the Queen and Royal Family, and the Grand Old Man. Our Whitlaud correspondent, writing on Thurs- day evening, says :—The news of Mr Powell's victory was received with the greatest enthusiasm here. Preparations on a gigantic scale are being made for the reception of the Dyn Bach o Maes- gwynne," who will arrive by the express. He will be presented with an address of congratula- tion, and drawn round the town along the road to Maesgivynne, until he is met by his Llanboidy friends, who will give him a similar welcome.
