MR DOUGLAS PENNANT AT BANGOR. The Hon. Douglas Pennant, the Conservative candidate, addressed a crowded meeting on Saturday night last at the Bangor Skating Rink. The meeting was presided over by Major Platt, who was supported by Colonels West, Holt, and Wil- liams, Dr Richards, &c. The candidate, who met with a very cool reception, said that there were already plenty of lawyerajn Parliament, and he hoped Carnarvonshire would not add to the number. With all their abuse of Lord Beaconsfield, he had never been called a fool; and he put it to them, were they going to support that policy which had brought peace to Europe or abandon it for no one knew what, as the Liberals had no policy ? They wanted to turn out the Govern- ment, but what policy had they offer? Mr Gladstone (cheers) when appealed to, was dumb. The continuation in office of a Tory Government was the only thing which could secure peace in Europe (groans). Great things had been expected from Lord Derby, who had gone over to the Liberals, but Lord Derby had done that which no Englishman could forgive-he had deserted his pest in the time of danger. He denied that he had ever been personally averse to the Sunday Closing Bill, and he hoped that this movement, in which thA church and chapel were going hand in hand, was an augury of the removal of religious bitterness and dissensions in Wales (hear, hear). He was in favour of a grant to the University College for Wales, and should support any motion for it. As regarded a handbill which had been circulated about the detention cd shipping at the port, he had been informed by Mr Wyatt that the particular vessel had been detained at the request of the merchant, who wanted two particular kinds of slates; and, referring to another assertion that the trade was being driven away by so many slates being sent by rail, he pointed out that the mer- chants wanted their goods by the quickest despatch. He did not believe that he or the Government would have to bow their heads in the coming storm, the effects of which he awaited with great confidence.—Mr Owen and others spoke, and a vote of support was carried.
