THE SCION OF GOGERDDAN, alias…

first night of his parliamentary career, was to vote in direct opposition to the interest and wishes of the majority of his con- stituents. I fully concur with you, Mr. Editor, in the remarks contained in your valuable paper of March 2, respecting Mr. P., and I would bsg to say further, that the blame in a great measure is to be attributed' to those gentlemen upon whose suf- frages he entered St. Stephens. I say the fault is with them, because, he was sent to the House far too unfettered, without expressing himself upon any of the topics of the day. These are tme i, when every public man ought to express himself ex- plicitly upon all subjects bearing upon the interest of the coun- try. The electors of those borough3 know nothing of Mr. P.'s opinions upon the connexion of Church and State the pro- vince of Government with regard to education, manhood suf- frage, vote by ballot, shorter parliaments, whether annual or triennial, extension of the suffrage, peace and war, &c., &c., in short, all the great questions which are now agitating the public mind. The contest that has just passed, was not between prin- ciple and no principles; liberty and oppression, but simply between Mr. P. and Mr. H., a neighbour and a stranger, a Whig and a Tory, a Welshman and a Bristolian and, I believe that I express the sentiments of many when I say, that the basis of the contention was far too limited, it was the story of the devil shearing the pig over again, Great, cry and little wool." Perish for ever such distinctions, I would have consi- sidercd it a far greater honour to have the opportunity of enun- ciating great truths, and thereby being for this time, in a glori- 0.1" minority, with a man of sterling principles, a Miall, or a Vincent, than a conqueror icilh a soft baked brick of clay. Is it then to be so much wondered at, that Mr. Pryse acted as he did; I see no causa to be surprised from the beginning X entertained the same opinion, and now it is confirmed. A that the Dissenters can, and ought to do now is, to organize committees in each of the contributory boroughs, in order to ■watch his furtherproceedings, and also to watch the register which is very much neglected in all the boroughs. Here alone I know oi' from twenty to twenty-five, that passes the necessary quali- cations, and are all of the right sort; they need only be put upon the list. Also to hold meetings and print pamphlets to explain the cardinal points of truth, and to enlighten Taffy in the things pertaining to his civil and religious liberty, and in this way ant by those means, I hope we should be able to strengthen even the Dissenters of Cardigan against the next election, and when that comes, let us all studiously, delibe- rately, and firmly, keep aloof from the" brick," and not to record one single vote in his favour, and say rather Give me the bold, the open, manly foe, Bold, I can meet, perchance may ward, the blow; But of all plagues, good heaven, thy wrath can send, Keen me, olt keei) me, from the slippery, friend. Dissenters of Cardiganshire, up, and be doing tell the scion of Gogerddan that you can treat his conduct with contempt; that he is Youit servant, and that when the next election comes, you will dismiss him and get another, who can sympathise with you do your work better, and expound those principles which you It jid 8U dear as your life. I am, yours &c., Aberystwyth, March 12, 1849. ELLDYD.
