#1" sWANSEA ELE(;TIO\. (From our Correspondent.) The election of a Member for Swansea ami its contributarv boroughs, took phi/e on 'I'ut'sda.y last, at the Town Hall. The Mayor (Col. Carnero:,) after reading the usual preliminaries, came forward and aski-d if ;\11:- oee wished to propose any gentleman to represent them in Parliament, when L. \V. Diilwyn, ICsq., late M.P., saiil he had much pleasure in proposing his much respected and valuable friend, John Henry Vivian, Esq., as a fit and proper person deserving of the high honor of representing the Western Boroughs. Air D, commented for some time on the Parliamentary conduct of that gentleman, which he believed had given his constituents generally, the greatest satis- faction. John Rowland, Esq., (banker), of XCltth, came in front and expressed himself lilost happy in having the opportunity of seconding the nomination of Mr Dillvvvn, as lie fully agreed with the sentiments en- tertained by that gentleman of their late Member Mr Vivian. Colonel, (the mayor,) then enquired if the electors had any other person to propose; and, after waiting the usual time, and no one appearing declaredJ. il. Vivian, Esq., to be duly elected to represent tlwrn in the ensuing ParJiatnent; to which the thousands present responded with one voice, crying Vivian for ever. The ceremony of Chairing took phce soon after 13 o'clock, with every demonstration of respect. Bells ringing", cannons firing, band [(la ving, and banners flying, with different appropriate emblems. A great number of gentlemen, tradesmen, and others of the town and neighbourhood, formed a procession, which, upon a moderate calculation, must have been from 000 t) 11), 00 The I IC- t I c,, adverted to Ins Parliamentary conduct, which he hoped had given Ills constituents satisfaction, itis votes were given conscientiously, although SOlllp lIIaV be at variance with many of his constituents. Being as he vyns immediately connected and interested in the welfare and prosperity of the town, it's trade and constituency, he feit it to be the highest honour thllt could attach to him, as a Member of Parliament, to have the honour of repre- senting that place. After the procession had returned to the Town Hall, the Hon. Member returned thanks lorlJe honour con- ferred again on him by his re-election; it being,he said, the proudest day of his Iii-c observing, that the kindly feeling evinced by his constituents towards him would never be obliterated li,o in iiis memory. The ladies wore to be seen waving their, handker- chiefs at every window, as the lion. Member passed, which were decorated with laurels, flowers, and ribbons, the smiles of whom must have been highly gratifying to him. The Hon. Member ordered the populace to be regailed with a sufficiency of Rolls's XX., to drink the health of the young Queen Victoria. The Mayor very good humouredlygiv iug tiieiu as a word of ad vice the old motto" to be merry and wise" We are happy to add, that the whole, proceedings of the day went off with the greatest good order, and much to the satisfaction of every one without the slightest indication of disturbance. Much praise is due to our much respected towns- men Mr John Francis, and Mr Thomas Jones, for their able and judicious management on this occasion. The Mou. Member, after the business of the day, with his usual hospitality, entertained agreat number of his friends with a dinner, at Singleton. At 10 o clock there was a grand display of fire- works in the Burrows Square, opposite the Assembly Rooms, LIe windows of which, and 01 every house in the Square, were crowded with all the fashionables of the town and neighbourhood the fire-works were under the superintendence of a gentleman from Vaux- hall, and gave the greatest satisfaction to thousands of spectators. There were a great and splendid variety of wheels, skv rockets, &c., with green, blue, and red lights, and finished with a grand star, which soon exhibited the words Vivian for ever. "# EPIGRAM. Says Tom to Will, the other day, Engag'd in friendly talk; Why do you halt so on the way ? You're lame—you scarce can walk. \ViH said, alas it is too true, Of work J'vc had my share But to the cause I'll give it clue— "l'vvas working for— A dare. And for Adare I all will dare, Since he's both staunch and sound Not c'eii the shoes I daily wear, Shall e'er be Iron bound. The Swansea and Neath Races were well attended on Tiiursuay and Friday week, although more impor- tant contests than those of horses occupied the minds of the public.

The Stakes for horses not thorough-bred—Gentle- men riders was won by Mr Parr's Mainsail, rode by tlie owner, beating three others between U alker and Lofty, was won by the former, Lofty being drawn. The Steward's Ordinary was well attended, as was the Ball at night. SWANSEA.—The Regatta went off very tamely—it is probably the last. There were no yachts. The races were confined to pilot boats and "altogether it was a very do'! affair. many Candidates were in t:;e field, and the elections were conducted amidst wreathed smiles" and tlie bounding of exulting bosoms to tiic mirth" o! dancing. HIKW vi\, fill VICTORY.—Tn con- sequence of the signal triumph obtained by Messrs. (J.e -t, (.rausiiay, and Fothersfili. Messrs.

'Fliic illollto be Workhouse for ever." In confirmation ot toe above intelligence we heard the guns firing at Newbridge, or. the same glorious event. Glamorgan's welcome dost thou boast ? Plit it to t]IP, test Thou reckonest without thy host, Thou most unwelcome Guest'. "#, #6<" COALITION.—MAROAM AND DOWI.AIS.—Fran- kenstein made a man, and then was frightened and tormented by his owl, The Whigs having got the Radical to stand, are now iKftfimjin# to b« afraid of him; rumours are afloat in various quarters that it will be Adare and Guest, and not Adarc and Talbut. The humble followers ot' the Great Man need not be afraid; tile Whigs in Glamorganshire, as in every other c the Radicals, and then throw them aside; and the Radicals are hut too irappv to receive a little countenance and support from their "High Mightinesses" the Whigs. It is snugly arranged; and if Mr Talbot's return is the least endangered, Mr Guest is tc resign. Will the county of Giamorganallow itself tube thus "jobbed Shall we be bandied about from Dowlais to Margam, and from Margam to Dowlais or shall we, bv one good blow, emancipate ourselves from this most dis- graceful attempt to make a rotten borough of tue county?
