MERTHYR TYDVIL, AND BRECON, Oct. 26, 1839. THE REGISTRATION. We stated last week in general terms that fhe Registration had been eminently in favour of the Conservatives throughout the whole of England. In anticipation of a fuller statement from an authentic souice, we subjoin alistof a few places, with the amount of Conservative gain in each. COUNTIES. Buckinghamshire. 69 Durham (on objections only) 29 Glotio-ester (East). 66 Gloucester (West) 159 Lancaster (Manchester district).. 144 Middlesex ^96 Yorkshire (West Riding) 151 Gain in six counties.1014 BOROUGHS. Ashton under Lyne 32 Devizes 21 Leeds. 264 London. 587 Newport. 2 Northallerton Sedgley Totness Worcester 36 Gain in 9 cities & boroughs..1037 These are merely a selection, till we can pro- cure a more general return. We may add that the gain to Monmouthshire, in Newport alone, is 14: the remainder of the county, we believe, will also exhibit an increase. In Halifax the Con- servative majority is increased to 78. Carmarthen by the way, exhibits a gain to the Radicals of 46. The returns from Glamorganshire we have stated from time to time and we refer to the Hundred of Swansea, as it appears in our columns to-day, with no little satisfaction. To what can we attribute this altered and im- proved state of things ? First and foremost to a more healthy state of feeling in the public mind. The day for change has gone by. The error of admitting Papists to legislate for a Pro- testant Church and a Protestant country, is now becoming pretty generally acknowledged. The conduct of the members of that faith, if faith it may be called, since the passing of the fatal Emancipation Act, has clearly proved the un- changeableness of Popery;—that it can still promise, and still break promisesthat while that Act was to be the signal for the restoration of peace and harmony in Ireland, it has but thrown additional power into the hands of the vassals of Rome, which they have not been slow to turn to her advantage, at the expense of ten- fold discord and strife. Oaths have been shame- fully violated, under the sanction of the Con- fessional a treasonable conspiracy has been fostered by the Popish Priesthood and, step by step, at last we have seen Papists numbered among the Privy Councillors of our Protestant Queen. Englallll, theil, has become alive to hrr greatest danger—POPERY,—at last, and the issue of the proceedings in the Registration Courts are the proof thereof. But there has been an agency at work, in hastening and maturing this cheering sign (f the times. That agency has been CONSER- VATIVE ASSOCIATIONS. Let not, then, partial success satisfy those who have contribu- ted the sinews of war to these valuable institu- tions. On the contrary, while much yet remains to be done, we would most respectfully and earnestly call on our gentry, and tradesmen, not only to continue their subscriptions, but to use their efforts to increase the number of contri- butors. It is no visionary good to which we beckon them. The battle of the constitution has been well fought this year,—fought where Sir ROBERT PEEL long since showed it must be. The gentlemen who have directed the energies of the GLAMORGANSHIRE CONSTITU- TIONAL SOCIETY have nobly done their parts and we now repeat our earnest call on the whole Conservative body, to aid that association both with purse and influence, until Glamorgan- shire, with every other County, be wrested from the tools,—in many instances the dupes, of the Popish Faction. Since the above was written, we have ascer- tained that Tuesday week is fixed upon for a general meeting of the Glamorganshire Consti- tutional Society. The personal presence of Con- servative gentlemen is most important; and after the beneficial effects which we have shewn have followed the exertions of this Society, we are sure we need add nothing more to induce their attendance, and their heartiest co-op era- tion. Let them remember that in this county this Society is one of the chief stays the Conser- vatives have for without it there is no organi- zation; and without organization the very best cause must droop.
The Observer has been belching forth lies against Sir ROBERT PEEL, which Sir ROBERT himself has deigned to expose. It would have had the public to believe that the Right Honour- able Baronet expected a Civil War in Ireland, in the event of his accession to office; forget- ing, or rather concealing the fact, that the four years of his occupancy of the Home Office, were among the most peaceable that country has enjoyed during the present century. As to Ireland, new branchings of the detestable Ribband Conspiracy have been discovered at Belfast; and if report speaks truly, the Govern- ment are in a condition to strike a decisive blow against that many headed monster, pro. vided only they have wisdom enough and courage. Rumour, however, often speaks falsely. And we are truly glad that such is the case with re- gard to Lord BROUGHAM. His Lordship's death, by the breaking down of his carriage, was an- nounced in London at the beginning of the week and the consequence was that next morning every paper contained a tribute to his memory, written, without a single exception, in the most kindly spirit towards that nobleman. Happily the rumour was false. An accident it is true had befallen his Lordship, in the manner we have mentioned but fortunately without per- sonal injury to himself. The following was the version most generally believed :— On Saturday last Lord Brougham was proceeding from his residence near Penrith, in a carriage which he had hired from an inn in the neighbourhood, to view an ancient castle at some distance. He was accompanied by Mr Leader, the member for West- minster, and Mr afto. In their journey the carriage broke down, and was upset with its occupants into a ditch. One ot the horses kicked Lord Brougham in the head, rendering him uable to rise, and apparently quite insensible. W. hlle m this state, the horses still struggling, the carriage fell completely over upon Lord Brougham's head, and crushed him to death on the instant. Mr Leader, we learn, received such serious injuries that it was not supposed he could survive them. Mr Shafto escaped with comparatively little injury.
NEW CHURCHES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE AND GUARDIAN SIR,—It surely must be the earnest wish, or rather prayer of every Christian man, that the subject of church building so fitly brought for- ward on a recent occasion by the good Bishop of Llandaff, should be brought home to the bosoms' and consciences of all to whom the dis- poser of souls has entrusted ten, or five, or one talent. It must be the hope of every member of the ScripturalChurch of England that each should awaken to a due sense of his responsibility, and more particularly those who in the lawful and honourable exerciie of their talents have been the means of congregating huge masses of im- mortal beings in our coal and iron districts.—In these intended tracts how few and far between are seen the temples of our national faith— ''those bulwarks of our land," and grievous are the consequences—for in spite of all that has been done by Dissenters of every class—and without their exertions a heathen darkness that might have been felt, would have overspread our mountains, I say in spite of all this, there is but as it were a faint twilight of religious day —the masses have been barely leavened—just preserved from total corruption. Drunkenness, and its attendant sins in every varied form, meet the eye of the traveller, and he that shall pass a Sunday near the works will surely conclude that it shines no Sabbath day for them. Now what more fitting remedy for the evil, under God, pre- sents itself than the planting of Churches and Ministers liberally throughout these districts?— Ministers active and zealous, of a Missionary spirit, masters of the two languages? But the wordly spirit says, the work is too great where- witllshall it be done ? With prayer, with exertion, with self-denial, with Christian love: by these, with the blessing of the Most High it shall be done. Horn many opulent men are then in our three Counties of Glamorgan, Monmouth and Bre- con, mho could each build and endow a church yearly out of their income, and feel no poorer? How many others who could join with five or ten more, and do the same ? How many whose in- fluence of name or character would supply the place of money? There is a gentleman near London, not believed to be among the very opu- lent, who has declared he will not rest till he has raised funds for building TEN CHURCHES -till he can pour Seventy thousand pounds into the treasury of the Lord! Individual exertion can do much in the way of a -tual contribution an average of half a crown from the inhabitants of the Principality would raise some :C 112,000, But righteousness exalteth a nation, and this is a national object; let us arise as one man and call on the Government to restore some part of the spoils of the church, torn from it at the Re- formation let it have its own, and it will work for itself; and that universal call which drew from the national purse seventy millions for the purchase of freedom to the slave, will, if again exerted, make itself heard and obeyed even by the men of expediency, who then were com- pelled to listen and comply. Let every town, parish, and hamlet send forth its petitions for justice to England and to Wales; let the clergy devote their pulpits to this great object; and let them put forth their prayers that it would please God to prosper their handywork upon them. Let our Bishops take the lead let St. David's strive with Llandaff which shall be foremost in the work-let them head Diocesan Church Build- ing Societies, let them call on Absent Rectors to subscribe liberally, let the high and the benefic- ed show themselves in earnest, and the lay members of the church will follow. Why should not our hills blossom as the rose, and our moral deserts rejoice and sing ? I am Sir, your obedient servant, A LAYMAN.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE AND GUARDIAN Sin,-Tite following letter, taken from the Conservative Journal, of Saturday last, puts the intrusive and usurping character of the Romish Church in such a striking and true light, that, if you can find a space for it in your columns, I feel assured it will be very acceptable to most of your readers; ard perhaps it may meet the eye of some whose 'ery erroneous notions with respect to the tenire of the property of the Church of England often lead them to assert (how truly it is for tlem to shew) that that pro- perty once of right lelonged, if it does not now belong to the Rormn Catholics-if indeed, a term so self-contradctory as that of the Roman Catholics may be used to describe them, I am, Mr. Editor, very truly yours, PHILALETHES. Basselleg, Oct. 15,1839. TO MR o'CONNELL. Siit,-r think sotre reply necessary to your Address to the Peope of England, and assure you no insult is inteufed to you or any Papist. I call you Papists, because it seems your appro- priate title. Roman Catholics mig-ht include all dwellers in Rome, whether followers of the Pope or not. Catho.ics you are not. There needs no argument to prove, to a learned man like you, that Catholic, meaning universal, can neverapply to any church planted by man. The sevei churches in Asia, might each as well call themselves Catholic; they were certainly as oH as the church planted at Rome, by St.Peter-Catl)olic, even that church never has been since the division between the Eastern Greek Chuich under the Patriarch, at Constantinople, frorc the Latin Western Church, under the Pope, at Rome, A.D. 397. A Christian Church was planted in this king- dom by St. Paul, nearly, if not quite as early as St. Peter planted one at Rome and in this light I answer, That the Papist branch of the Church of Rome, intruded on the Christian Church of St. Paul, in this kingdom, in A.D. 596, when Austin the Papist, usurped an authority. That this usurpation, continued till the reign of Henry VIII. That this usurpation, you, as a zealous Papist, endeavour again to intrude. Hence, I would beseech you to excuse my saying that the Bjfhops and Priests of the Latin Western Popish Church, who exercise their functions in the British dominions, act schismatically, de- riving no succession from the ancient British, Irish, Scottish, or Anglo Saxon Churches planted by St. Paul. Their authority is from Rome. Whatever degree of apostolical succes- sion and ecclesiastical power you may claim for the Latin Western Church and Pope at Rome, and in Italy, I claim for the Angciican Church and Archbishop of Canterbury, in London and the British Dominion. You must allow me to say of Austin, just what you would say of any British priest who had intruded into Rome and usurped power; nay, 1 atn ready to treat you Papists now just as you would treat any Lu- theran, or Calvanist, or English Protestant, who should issue in the Pope's dominions such a letter as you have issued in her Britannic Majesty's. My answer is, that without usurpation no Papist can exercise Ecclesiastical authority in the British dominions. Can they exercise secular authority ? I think not honestly. As long as our Sovereign is head of the Church, so long a Papist must be a dan- gerous subject; the more honest the more dan- gerous. The conduct of the Bishop of Malta is as decisive as it is honourable to the Christian prelate. He doubted whether he could take the I oath of allegiance to our Sovereign, which was framed when PapIsts were admitted to a share in the legislation f°r these British dominions; he submitted his doubts to the Pope who de- cided that he could not take it. Hence I answer, that the better, i.e. the more conscientious a Papist is, the more impossible it is to be a faithful and true subject of the Sovereign of Britain.. Your Ecclesiastics, then, I contend, can have no more authority here than ours can have in the Papal territories. Your Laymen can only pay a divided allegiance to our Sovereign, in which division the Pope must always have the lion's share. ,r- I hope I have said nothing offensive, but suffi- cient to convince my Protestant fellow subjects, that Popery ever was, is, and must be, an intru- sive usurpation in the British dominions, hostile to the Church, and dangerous to the State, in proportion to the conscientiousness of the Papist. I have the honour to be your conscientious op- ponent, A GLOUCESTERSHIRE VICAR. Vicarage, Sept. 28, 1839.

An Act for apportioning the Spiritual Services of Parishes in which two or more spiritual persons have cure of souls generally throughout the parish. —[19th July, 1839] Recites that there are several benefices, in every of which more than one spiritual person is instituted or otherwise admitted to the cure of souls generally within the same. And that it would conduce to the spiritual good of the inhabitants if the cure of souls were apportioned between or among the said spiritual persons. Enacts, that from and after the passing of act, the Bishop of the diocese in which any such bene- fice having more than one spiritual person instituted or otherwise admitted or licenced to the cure of souls ge- nerally within the same is locally situated, may from time to time direct a decree, with intimation, to issue from the registry of the diocese, calling upon the spiri- tual persons institutedor otherwise admitted to the cure of souls, and upon the churchwardens or chapelwardens and other inhabitants of any such benefice, or any of them, to show cause before the Bishop in person, at a time and place specified in such decree, such time not being within one month from the service of such decree, and such place being within the diocese, why the spiritual duties of such benefice should not be apportioned between or among such spiritul persons in the manner and in the proportions specified in such decree and if at the time and place appointed cause to the contrary be not shown to the satisfaction of the said bishop, he may issue an order in pursuance of and in conformity with such decree, or, if cause be shown, withhold, amend, or vary such order, as to him may seen just and proper; every order to issue under the hand and episcopal seal of the bishop, and on its being issued, to be registered in the registry of the diocese, and every decree and order to be served on every such spiritual person thereby affected, and on one of the churchwardens or chapelwardens of the benefice, by delivering to them a copy thereof, or leaving a copy at the house or legal residence of such spiritual person, churchwardens or chapelwardens, and on the inhabitants of the benefice, by aflixing and leaving affixed a copy thereof on the doors of the several churches or chapels of such benefice; and a copy of such order to be deposited and preserved by the churchwardens of the parish or parishes within such benefice, or one of them, in the parish chest of every such parish, and he shown without fee to any parishioner requiring to see the same, at reasonable times and in case such spiritual person refuses or neglects to comply with such order for the space of one month after such service, or refuses or neglects to perform the spiritual duties of the benefice in the man- ner and proportions by such order directed, the said bishop may proceed against him In the same manner as the bishop is empowered to proceed in the case of a spiritual person by reason of whose negligence the ecclesiastical duties of his benefice are inadequately performed. Provided that parties aggrieved, and who have appeared, may within thirty days from the service of such order, appeal against the same to the archbishop of the province, who is to hear and determine such appeal, and confirm, revoke, or vary such order as to him may seem just and proper; and if he revokes or varies the same, such revocation or variation to be registered in the registry of the diocese, and he served, preserved, shown, and enforced as before directed, with regard to the original order and the archbishop may, if he shall think fit, order the appellant to pay the costs ol such appeal. Provided that in any case in which an appeal shall be interposed by any spiritual person, notice to be forthwith given p by or on behalf of the bishop by whom the order appealed from has been made, to the churchwardens of the parish and to the spiritual persons having the cure of souls in such parish; and all persons interested in such order to be entitled to be heard before the arch- bishop to oppose the revocation or variation sought to be obtained by the original appellant from such order. THE DUKE OF LEINSTBR has contributed the mu- nificent donation of £500. towards the erection of a new church at Athy. ST. PAUL'S, STALYBRIDGE*This neat edifice, which has been recently erected, has just been con- secrated by the Lord Bishop of Chester. CASTLE STREET CHAPEL, Reading, which has been upwards of 40 years in the Countess of Huntingdon's connexion, and recently under the care of Mr Sher- man, has been purchased and consecrated by the Lord Bishop of Salisbury for the service of the Church of England. The appointment ot the minister will be vested in the trustees perpetually.. BATH.—A small Episcopal chapel has been opened in Avon street; by the bounty of a private individual, and other means, a permanent provision of Z150 per annum will be made for the support of a minister. WINDSOR AND ETON CHURCH UNION SOCIETY.— The quarterly meeting of this excellent association was held at Windsor, on the 30th ot September. It 0 appears thet the total of receipts during the year was no less than £ 948 4s. 9d of which X350 was dis- tributed among the different Parent Churches So- cieties, and .t9ó was applied to local purposes. Among the latter we are happy to find the erection of two new churches, the enlargement of a third, and the fitting up of two provincial places of public worship. The QUEEN continues at Windsor. His Highness Prince ALBERT of COnURG remains at the Castle. It is stated that a sum exceeding £ 50,000. was el furnished out of her Majesty's privy purse to pay the debts of her late Royal father. HER MAJESTY'S APPROACHING NUPTIALS. (From the Morning Herald ) We give the following precisely as we received it, last night, from an occasional correspondent:— Windsor, Sunday Evening. N'otwithstanding'the strong assertions which have been made to the contrary, it is not only currently rumoured here, but positively stated in those circles which ought to be well-informed on the subject, that at a Privy Council, which will be held at the Castle to-morrow, parliament will be prorogned to an early day before Christinas, 'then to sit for the dispatch of business,' when the intended alliance of her Majesty with Prince Albert of Saxe Coburg will be officially announced to the legislature. It would be idle to speculate upon the probable time when this event will take place although we may state it is rumoured that it will occur in the month of March or in the early part of April next."
IRELAND Since the formation of the County Dublin Conserva- tive Registration Society, in October, 1837, a ma- jority of 170 Conservative electors has been obtained thereby placing the county in a position to return two stanch Conservatives whenever an opportunity shall offer." RIBBONis.m.-A great sensation has been produced in Belfast by the discovery of a Ribbon Lodge on a large scale. All the books, papers, &c. have been seized. Disclosures have been made which, if the Government does its duty, are likely to lead to im- orUnt consequences.

At the last meeting of the Board, a vote of thanks, moved by the Chairman, seconded by C. (I. Williams, Esq., to his Lordship, was carried unani- mously; and entered on the minute book with the other proceedings of the (ity. UNOSTENTATIOUS BENEFICENCE.—A few months ago, it came to the knowledge of the Marquess of Bute that from depression of trade a considerable num- ber of the working classes and small tradesmen of Cardiff were in distress; a list of the persons suffering was promtly and silently obtained by Lord Buto; after which eiory Monday morning duriug the pressure, each of the individuals affected by it received from an unknown quarter an'envelope enclosing a half sove- reign. Such is/the veneration in whicb, the private vir- tues of this nobleman are held, that at the latecelebra- ion at Cardiff, number* of the Mcrthyr Radicals, who had bitterly denounced his Lordship in the frenzy of 1832, attended to'dd him honor. On a gentleman ex- pressing to one of them his surprize at this change, he wasanswered, Lord Bute is so good a man that our party can have no hostillity to him; we admire him as an honor to our coullty." We omitted to insert the name of our excellent Member, L,)).d Adare, among the MagistrAtes who were present at the late Quarter Sessions at Swansea. His Lordship was at his post, where it is but common justice to say, he is always to be found. We have heard with the most sincere pleasure, that the Chancellor of the Diocese is so far recovered from his late ilittegg, that he will be able to attend the Bishop at the Consecration of Glyn Taff Church, Newbridge, on Tuesday next. On Monday last, 150 mellfJof the 94th regiment, embarked in the Persia, at Gravesend, to join iu the Service Companies of their regiment at Madras. This detachment was under the command of Major Lindsay: the other Officers of the detachment are Capt. Corbet Cotton, Lieut. Dore, Ensign Robert Bruce, and Assistant Surgeon Moore.- United Service Gazelle. We see by the University papers, that William John Conybeare, B.A., has been elected a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge; and Horace Lewis Knight Bruce, Esq., of Christ Church Collcge, Oxford, li-is been admitted to the degree of Master of Arts in that University- THE FIRST OF NOVEMBER.—Next Friday is the day for the election of Borough Councillors -On the 'ninth of November the Mayor and Aldermen of Boroughs are elected. NEwnaiDGE Ciluitcu.-We have heard that a large meeting of gentlemen connected with the district in which this church is built, are expected to be present on the occasion of its consecration by the Lord Bishop of the Diocese, on Tuesday next; among others, the Hon. Robert H. Clive, M.P., Lord Adare, M.P., &c., &c. The Bishop leaves Hardwick oil the 28th, on a visit to the Rev. J. Montgomery Traherne, at Coed- riglan, near Cardiff, from whence ho will proceed to Newbridge on the following morning. "A LOYAL LIBERAL" has addressed a letter to the Merlin and Cambrian, containing several gratuitous FALSEHOODS about ourselves. One example will suf- fice. lie charges us with omitting the name of an individual who was present at the dinner at Cardiff, on the 9th inst., who is well known for his liberal polities. He says, "It is possible this may account for his exclusion, as well as others, from the list handed to the reporter of the Merthyr Guardian." The answer to this very uncalled for attack is, that we are altogether unacquainted with the person or politics of the individual alluded to. Nolist was handed to our reporter. He noted every individual personally known to him, and whom he corald recognize while sitting at the table; and tie received from several gentlemen who were near him, the names of many others he did not himself know. His desire was to give the names of every person present; even down to that of the ill-bred fellow who kept his hat on while Captain Smyth was speaking. And the only names he was in possession of, which were omitted from our report, were those of about half a dozen Newport gentlemen, kindly furnished by one of their number; the list being accidentally mislaid till it was too late to insert them. As for any political conduct, the solitary in- stance we noticed on that occasion was the hiss of some ruffian at the lower end of the room, when the QUEES DOWAGER'S name was announced. The addi- tional and deafening cheers with which this insolent piece of liberal" blackguardism was met, were quite as much called for on the score of gallantry to an ex- alted female, (not less exalted by character than by birth and station,) as approval of her Protestant con- duct. After this we scarcely need deign a reply to the other falsehoods of the latter. A PUBLICAN FINED FOR DRUNKENNESS AND BLASPHEMY!—On Wednesday last, Evan Llewelyn, a publican of Llandaff, was convicted, on the infor- mation of J. Bruce Pryce, Esq., before the Rev. Richard Prichard and John Homfray, Esq., in the full penalties and costs, under the respective nets, for being drunk and swearing several profane oaths in that place, on the Ifith instant.—It being the second con- viction for drunkenness, he was also bound, with two sureties, for his future good behaviour. [From what we have heard of this man, whose riotous and disgraceful conduct is as well known at Merthyr as at homo, we should think his sureties were in a hazardous position.] IMPORTANT TO SHIPOWNERS.—The following reso- lution has been lately passed at a special meeting of the General Committee for managing the affairs of Lloyd's Register of British and Foreign Shipping, viz., "That it will be made a regulation, that every ship, after her return from a voyage beyond the Cape of Good Hope, or Cape Horn, shall, previously to her departure upon another distant voyage, be required to be placed in dry dock, or on the ways, for the exami- nation of her bottom." And notice has been given that the regulation will be adopted and carried into effect forthwith. CARDIFF POLICE—OCT. U. [Present the MAYOR and HENRY MORGAN, ESQ.] George Lewis, George Watson, jun., Edward Wil- liams, and Thomas Maby, in connection with others, not yet in custody, were brought before the bench to answer to a charge of assault on the police. From the evidence of James Jones and others it appeared that he (Jones) was ou.duty near the Cardiff Arms, on the morning of Friday, the 18th of October last, about two o'clock, and that while conveying a prisoner awny whom he had in his charge, the prisoners, headed by George Lewis (who was very conspicuous on the occasion) made a simultaneous attack on him (Jones;) that George Lewis struck the police repeat- edly with a stick, and called on the prisoners and others to attack the police. Lewis then wrested the stuff from the constable Jones, got him down, and com- menced kicking him. After a patient investigation of the whole of the circumstances, the bench after severely reprimanding the prisoners, adjudged that George Lewis and George Watson, be fined in the sum of three pounds each and costs, and that Edward Williams and Thomas Maby, be fined 20s. each and costs. Warrants were granted against the other parties. It was supposed that the reason of the above outrage, was, that J,raei Jones (who is a very active and clever constable) used con- siderable exertions, some time since, to bring to justice and punishment, certain pasties who, a la Waterford, broke anrl did consldcable injury to the town lamps, and committed. nu,merous other follies. r## THE M. N who murdered a police officer named Lawlor, near C"rk, is stated to have escaped it, vessel bound to Swansea, the Sunday morning follow- ing the murder, where he landed, and is supposed to have proceeded to the collieries or iron works, in search of employment. CAUTION TO DRIVERS-As a man named Thomas Williams, was riding at a slow rate up High-street, Swansea, on Saturday last, a market car happened to bedriving down ata tremendous rate, and when nearly opposite Williams, the driver of the car suddenlj pulled one rein, and his horse darted almost across the street, and the shaft of the car coining in violent con- tact with Williams's horse and penetrating the poor animal's skin just over the fore legs, the horse died on the spot, the rider narrowly escaping the same fate whilst the driver of the marketer kept on at the same furious rate, as unconcerned; as if nothing had hap- pened. Tho car is said to he the property of the GwcudractU AutlifacUo Company Carmarthenshire,
REGISTRATION COURT-SWANSEA. The revising courts for the hundreds of Swansea and LIangafelach, commcnced on the 8th of October instant The Radicals in this place were active as usual, and although they charged the Conservative party with having given wholesale objections, yet they had the candour to acktiowledge liaviii, done. so in one parish themselves and it appeared strange, anrl of course was extremely annoying to our party, that all the notices of objections given by the Radicals were duly published by the overseers, while thoso iven by our party, particularly in and about Gower aud Penriee, were not so published and thus many of our objections fell to the ground. Notwithstand- ing the difficulties we had to contend with, we aro happy t,) s:iv tli;tt, at the close of the registration, we had a decided majority upon the last year's registra- tion, and this is admitted on all hands. We subjoin the particulars, but not without calling the attention of our readers to the case of John Ace, which came before Mr Wilson, by which it is seen the same de- scription of votes are cooked up near Penrice as at Margam. The followillg is the case alluded to J "hll Ace was called upon to prove his claim in the parish of Reyuoldstooe, when Mr Williams, of Neath, appeared to support his vote, and was thereupon sworn: i know John Ace. lie has a lease of a cottage, at Reynoldstone, for his own life, at a rent of 7s. per annum. [ have seen the lease; it is from C. R. M. Talbot, Esq. He had it -ibotit two yeii-s igo. Thomas George, examined.—I am the son of Mr Thomas George, who is Mr Talbot's agent at Penrice. I know John Ace; he lives at Reynoldstone. The cottage he has is worth 50s per annum. He has lived in it iiiatiy years. Cross-examined by Mr Coke.—My father receives the rent for Mr Talbot. Ace occupied the cottage as tenant at will before the lease was granted. My father is very old, and I assist him in receiving the rents. I cannot swear that Ace pays the same rent now as previous to the lease. He has lived in it many years; about eight or ten years. I do not know whether lie has ever paid the 7s. rent to my father since the lease has been given. Ace did not build the cottage, nor did he lay out any money upon it. lie occupied .the cottage, and garden adjoining. before the lease was granted as tenant at will. The garden is not included in the lease. I do not know the value of the garden. I think the (ot is wortlt 50s. per annum but cannot say what he pays. Mr Win. Llewellyn, cross-examined.—I drew the lease; it is not on stamp; won't say whether it is printed. Don't know whether Ace built the house. I never had instructions from Ace to prepare the lease. I tiolft the lease executed by Ace. I can't say he instructed me to support his claim to day. I have not seen a counterpart of ihe lease executed by the lessor. Seven shillings rent is reserved by the lease. I hold the lease for both parties. Mr Coke contended, without going into the merits of the case, that as there was no evidence of the ex- ecution of the lease by the lessor, the claimant's name ought to be expunged which was done by Mr Wilson accordingly. Messrs Davis, Thomas, and Coke appeared for the Conservatives and Messrs Collins, Llewellyn, and Walters for the Radicals. At the close of the Court, on Friday, Mr Collins on behalf of himself and the other professional gentlemen engaged in the Registration Courts,thanked Mr Wilson for the very able manner in which hediscbarged his du- ties, and for the courtesy shewn by him to the profes- sional gentlemen.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. 0 The lines by IMBERBIS are exceedingly creditable both to his head and heart They are, however, scarcely suited to the columns of a newspaper a religious periodical would be a more fitting medium for their publication. The verses dated from near Gellifailog," beginning There's a pretty girl I know, And she lives in Westmoreland Row," are not unworthy of the newly married swain, but are scarcely sufficiently polished for publication. Another verse-spinner begins a Farewell to Swan- sea" with these words Adieu unto Swansea, my loved native town To leave thee, my sorrow I candidly own j" Should we print the remainder, our readers would frown. LLYCHARD CYNON.—This contributor to our Antho- logy is more fortunate.
