MERTHYR TYDVIL. AND BRECON, Nov. 23, 1539. The appointment of FROST as a Magistrate is so disgraceful to the Government, that even their own friends do not defend it they merely attempt to shift the blame upon anybody's shoulders who is better able to bear the load they say that as he was recommended by the Town Council, and that recommendation was backed by the Lord Lieutenant of the County, it was Lord JOliN RUSSELL'S bounden duly to appoint him that the Home Secretary is, in fact, merely the Clerk of the Returns, and is to Ct register the edicts" of Radical Councillloards and of Wi.i,Radiciii Lieutenants. It so hap- 11 pens that the very same Secretary, not only ap- pointed Magistrates in the very teeth of the recommendations of Lords-Lientenants, but dis- missed the Lords-Lieutenants themselves,if they proved refractory and happened to be Tories; but without dwelling upon the flimsy effrontery of this truly Whig argument, let us see for a moment what conclusions are to be drawn from the facts. Frost, at the time of his appointment, was well known to every Town Councillor of Newport, to the Lord-Lieutenant of Monmouth- shire, and to Lord John Russell, as a convicted libeller, a fraudulent insolvent, and an open ad- vocate of a division of property, (TVerndee to wit) and knowing all this, the Town Council elect him, the Lord-Lieutenant recommends him, and the Secretary of State appoints him. Of course;" say the Whigs, he was bound to do so!" Is any comment necessary? Does not the transaction stamp with indelible disgrace every person concerncd ? We challenge a reply from any Whig in the kingdom. What a happy example of the practical working of the liberal system! What a worthy and enlighted Mu- nicipal Corporation! What a discriminating and impartial Lieutenant f What a statesmanlike Home Secretary! How much better is Mon- mouthshire managed, how much more carefully are her Magistrates selected, how much more attentive is the Home Office to representations from a proper quarter" than in the old corrupt days of Beauforts and of Cästlereaghs e heartily congratulate every man in Monmouth- shire, who has anything to lose, on the blessings of Reform. However, the Whigs having made him a Magistrate, will now, we take it for granted, at least have the courage to make him an example—an example to all Chartists, Town Councils, Lieutenants, and Secretaries of State. The bodies of Traitors are no longer quartered but in ruder times, we should have seen one limb over the gates of Pontypool Park, another over Llanover, a third over the door of the Council Room of Newport, and a fourth over the Home Office. Punishments vary, but crimes remain unchancred. nor do we think that the name of Frost, the Traitor," will he heard for many a day without a twinge of con- science in any of the places we have just named. How say you, gentlemen Whigs? Guilty, or Not Guilty ?
