THE ELECTION IN NORTH WALES.

THE ELECTION IN NORTH WALES. Our present parliament has now only a short fortnight to continue, and as the time of its dis-o- lution draws nearer, so does the anxiety of con- stituencies intensify. Hitherto, no fresh aspirant has offered himself for these (v arnarvonshire) Boroughs, and now, unless tho great landed pro- prietors coalesce, Mr. Bulkeley II ughes will have, in our opinion — as we stated last week — a quiet walk over, and the boroughs will be saved the turmoil usual at a contested election. We also learn that the preliminary canvass for the County of Merioneth has been made by both candidates, and its returns leave no doubt upon our mind as to the result. We hear that Mr. Wynne, junior, has returned to Peniarth, after his canvass, and we hope the se- clusion of his hospitable home will enable h m to reflect calmly upon its results. If it does, we can- not doubt he will save his friends the trouble, and himself the disappointment, which must result from a contest. jfe'tln Anglesey there is every appearance that the present members will be quietly re-elected. Indeed, we are sure, for the peace and well being of the county, it is the best ccurse. Sir R. W. Bulkeley has too strong a hold on the county as a kind-hearted man to be easily ousted; and it is also well known that he has consented to con- tinue its representative, by the earnest solicitation of friends. We, however, wish that Sir Richard would be what he was when first elected, and that he would not allow excited feelings to over-ride his maturer reason. As to the Honourable Mr. Stanley there is not a more fearless supporter of progressive advancement in the House of Com- mons, and though at times his home politics clash with those of some of his constituents, we are sure the Liberal party will not find a more consistent representative among the gentlemen of Anglesey. In the other Northern Welsh Counties all re- mains serene, although, at times, we hear, that a few Liberal seats are threatened by a Tory oppo- sition. We hope, however, a judicious determi- nation to "let well alone," will operate—especially in Flintshire, where the most convincing proofs were given by the electors on the last occasion that a retrograde movement would receive no sympathy. Shortly before going to press, or rather to the machine, we received an intimation from Mr. Beaver Roberts (as will be seen from our adver- tising columns) of his intention to retire from the approaching election for these boroughs. He says he does so because another candidate in the conservative interest has appeared, which lessens his chances of success; that he retires with the full determination of appearing again when an opportunity offers, thus illustrating the old adage, That he who fights and runs away, Will live to fight another day." We have not, however, received the address of the mythical candidate referred to by Mr. Beaver Roberts, nor do we expect to receive such an ad. dress this week.
