fttoumoutfiSlutT. -0 The Election for the Monmouth Boroughs has terminated in favour of Mr. Blewitt, bv a ma- jority of 54. The parting address of lir. Baiicv well explains the true cause of his defeat. It is a model of calin and dignified reasoning —of Christian for- bearance and gentlemanly propriety; and, if they have hearts to feel, will cause the blush of present shame and the feeling of future regret on the part of those who have dealt so treacherously by him. Of his opponent we will say nothing more, than believing that he has fanned the flame of popular excitement for private purposes, he will, we feel assured, disappoinj Radical expectation in the votes he will give, and his admirers in the speeches he will deliver. The Con- servative cause i:i the Monmouth Boroughs has sus- tained no real defeat. Cwild its supporters have stooped to the arts and descended to the practices of the Radicals, the victory might have been theirs but their laurels would have been irreparably tarnished. W e exhort the Consei vatives, therefore, to be of good courage, to centralize their strength, to remain firm, and tosbowa lesson of moderation in their unexpected defeat,worthy of the name and the cause they have espoused. MONMOUTH ELECTION. The contest for the United Boroughs Of* and USK, off" on Tuesday; and modern Liberalism, in alliance with Poppry, Democratic tyranny, and rank corruption, has gained the victory. A reference to the numbers polled, will show "that Monmouth and Usk, are virtually disfranchised or, at least, that the majority iti those towns, must submit to be governed by tIle minority. L.t us, we sav, have a "Rqalc" of the Union, and leave Newport "alone in her glory." The pretenders to purity mav ascribe their success to the very active personal influence and exertions of Philip Jones, Esq., the High Sheriff, of the county, and head ol the -Monmouthshire Banking Company.

G. George; and that Nir. Bailey was proposed by Mr. Williams, of Newport, seconded by Mr. Dyke; that Mr. Blewitt shortly addressed the Electors, and commended himself to tljeit- favor. Mr. Bailev then presented himself to their notice, and with a clear head and manly elo- quence, entered seriatim into the leading questions now agitating the public mind, and noblv responded to the call of Mr. George, by giving a full, honest, and very able expose of his political views, by which he should steer his public conduct, if etected their Re- presentative. Mr. Bailey spoke for more than three quarters of an hour, and was listened to with respect- ful attention. His opponents say that his abilities and aptitude for business reminded them of Mr. Hall and we believe that every respectable man in their ranks entertain sincere respect for him. In the esteem of his supporters and friends he stands higher than ever. TREDEGAR.—On Monday, the 17th July, ]837, there was a numerous meeting of the inhabitants and rate-payers of the parish of Bedwellty, in the ooullty of Monmouth, held in the Town liall, for the pur- purpose of bearing and dotermining upon any propo- sition that might then be made by or on the part of Messrs. Harford's and Co., for settling the differences at present existing between them and the inhabitants of Bedwellty, respecting certain public highways within that parish; when the parishioners came to a deter- mination that their solicitor, Thomas Jones Phillips, k*q-, should proceed w ith the indictment against the fords, unless they came to a" amicable arrange- ment, in 11 rlnvs frr.m the lTtll instant. A Votl of thanks v, as then proposed, and unanimously carried, to Samuel Homfray, Esq., as Chairman; when the meeting broke up. On the lith instant, our Sovereign, the Queen, was proclaimed in this town, and although the morniug was unfavourable with respect to tiic the proresslOn met no inconvenience, as It cleared up at four o'clock in the afternoon, and was numerously attended by equestrians and pedestrians. Loud cheering responded to the national anthem of God save the Queen. 0,1 Saturday, the 22nd of July instant, Major Holtord s supporters, accompanied by Summers Har- ford, and 000 or 700 of the Harford's men, came into ttustowt),to canvass the inhabitants in favour of the red; and, beillg" market day, great confusion was occasioned. I lappily the Tredegar workmen were too busily employed to join in the throng, or the red would have been more speedily beaten out of the field.
