Carmarthen Borough Quarter Sessions. RECORDER'S STRONG VIEWS ON THE COUNTY AGHATION. The Midsummer Quarter Sesd-ons. for the county of the borough cf Carmarthen were held at the Guildhll, Cannarthen, on Friday, before Mr E. Jlilner Jones, recorder. The Recorder mid that it was a matter of great congratulation to that ancient town that there were no piir.oners for trial, and that there was no business to bring before the grand jury. His attention had been drawn that morning to an admirable letter which had been sent cut hv the Toxm Clerk (Mr It. JL ihemas). There a suggestion put forward that the offices of the county council should he removed that ancient town to Llanelly. He was glad to -.ee that their town clerk had put forward hi.s rgl- nwnt-if lie might say so—the geographical argument in favour cf Carmarthen. Of course, there was another great argument— that that ancient borough ha 1 been the seat of government of the county for centuries. But the argument, and the -strongest argu- ment. «>emed t8' him—speaking as a native of th.t comity, and one who knew the geo- _grr.pliy cf the eciinty -t,) I),- that Carmarthen wts the most centra] and the mrst conven- ient place to hold nil county business. Llan- elly was placed in a corner bordering on the county of Glaimorgan and for the northern M.rt of the county, from Llandovery down, he. thought that, en the Avhole. Carmarthen, perhars, wna the most corvenient, although IJfUielly wni almost o>, convenient. But when they got to the other end nnd took in Bnch places as Whitlnnd. ->ewca tie Emlyn. andLampeter, nnd the whole of that, rns- t-rict which formed a very large portirn of the county. Carmarthen waft by far the mlt &nyejiient place (bar, hear). He thought it right to allude to the question, and no more. The R ecorder then discharged the grand jury with the thanks of the Borough for their attendance. The Mayor (Mr H. E. Blagdon-Richards) r. as sworn in a a magistrate for the borough.
