No. 2. «, 18.50 1 i ?1R; '"A^'KL1:y\~I °nly four da>'s aS° received y0; r letter of the oOth of May, which, however, I perceive, bears ti e Bridgend post-mark of June lltli, enclosing a Prospectus of the Central Glamorgan Protection Club, and mentioning the enib- rassment under which my Constituents labour, in consequence pf my absence from Parliament; and also requesting me to make a specific declaration of my views of public policy, as to the princhr of a restoration of Protection to British Labour and Capital I much regret that my absence has caused embarrassment to a Jaqc portion of my Constituents, more especially during a Session H which measures have been discussed, upon which thev feel t]^ liveliest interest, when I should have most gladly bee n present. As to the general question, JOU know that I voted against the r c pc'l ) of the Corn Laws, not being convinced of the necessity of such > change, conceiving it to be one fraught with difficulties of' ordinary magnitude, attended with great risk, and certain to cau^ at least a temporary depression to the Agricultural interest bu< these laws having been repealed, and a new system entered upo> is is quite another question whether they could be justly or safe1-' re-enacted and I, fur one, felt myself uuable tc support measu-j which I conceived tantamount to a reversal of the whole policy the last few years, or to advocate the restoration of the dutv O'I foreign corn. Ihe results of Free Trade do not as yet bear out the san £ ?u;» predictions of its ardent supporters, while the present state of the Agricultural interest must naturally cause considerable anxiety to those who, like myself, look upon its prosperity as of vital portancc to the welfare of our country, more c-specialiv to that portion of it (Ireland) which has most felt the effects of Free Trade- With respect to the future, I hope, please God, to return toEr- land in time to take part in those measures which doubtless wn be brought forward-measures calculated, I trust, to rcliev- the Agricultural classes from the difficulties into which partlv, atlea«t" owing to the introduction of the new system, they nave bee-i' thrown. J I have endeavoured to answer your letter as explicitly as I e ri • but, situated as I am here, it is difficult to enter into explanations' without giving false impressions, one way or the other. The very word Protection is vague; a just protection is one tiling—r:art:- protection may be quite another. I see fallacious exaggerations in the arguments and statistics both of Free-traders, and of those who think that Free-trade must necessarily have one result—continual!" increasing distress, and the eventful ruin of England's prosperity5 While therefore I cannot pledge myself to any party, or to any plll"- ticular measure, I am clearly of opinion, should the present depres- sion of our great Agricultural interest continue, that the interval between this and next Session will but add force to the necessity which I already feel, and had I had the opportunity, should have voted for adopting decided measures for its alleviation but I shall best discharge my duty towards my Constituents, as well as act most in accordance with the dictates of my own conscience, by remaining- free to support such as I conceive, with justice towards the whole community, are calculated to restore the equilibrium, which has of late been so disturbed.

DEATH OF MK, STRVP^ANV T*- i • 1 ™"l SON,—It is *\vith sincere regret we ha\t to announce the death of Mr. Stevenson the civil ensrmeer. an PVPJI* JTE en^on, xne civ.t Mr Stevenson had reached the advanced -a^'of 78. The contemporary of Telford, Rennie, and Stephenson (ofEnghnd), needs no biography beyond an enumeration of his works. Mr Stevenson, it will be remembered, was the sole designer and executor of the celebrated Bell Rock Lighthouse, which is ir itself a monument of ingenuity and industry. Mr. Stevenson rs lought into notice the supsriourity of malleable iron rods foi, r liways overthe old cast iron, a fact which has been fully aiKnovvledged. lie also surveyed the line between Edinburgh, and (rlasgow, and though his plan was not adopted, it was nv ich admired. The coast of Scotland, however, is the vyhere the labours of Mr. Stevenson are principally to be seen; Not a harbour, rock, nor island, but bears evidence of his indefatigable industry, and it is incalculable to thi ik of the amount of life and property which by his exertions have been sav.d. In matters relating to the construction of harbours, toek-, or breakwaters, he was generally consulted as an authority, and received, as a mark of respect and admiration, a gold medal from the late King of the Netherlands. In private life nothing could exceed the amiability and good heartc(heii of Mr. Stevenson.—Edinburgh Eveninq Post,
