TO THE INDEPENDENT ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWEL.' ri ENTLEMEN,—I have again, with increased assiduity and care, renewed my canvass, where, on previous occasions, I was not so fortunate as to receive either definitive or decisive replies. I am now, however, reluctantly convinced, that Men, not measures," in too many instances, par- aiyze your political action, for while I have evinced a readiness to defend those principles, which are your own, I have met with neutrality in some, and positive opposition in others, where consistency should, on your own terms, have indisputably en- Sured to me both influence and support instead. The contest, which (but for the reasons assigned) .1 ) Would unquestionably have ended in my favour, has thus become too close a struggle, to justify 119 -1 further opposition on my part, to the return of my noble opponent as your Representative in Parlia- ment, and I therefore, without hesitation,, though not with indifference, withdraw myself as a Candi- date for your suffrages. 11 I have the more readily likewise come to this conclusion, from a. deep-seated feeling, that no one should hastily, still less uselessly, imperil that social peace and harmony, as well as commercial tranquility, which, with abundant reason, it is always so desirable to maintain secure and inviolate. With this solicitude, blame me not then, for the conclusion at which I have arrived, ready, nay anxious as I was, for the high honor of becoming your Representative, since I have done my duty even though it be apparent, that others have disre- garded their own. Nevertheless, I cannot conclude without record- Ing an assurance of my readiness, at all times, to :S!T'port, to the utmost of my power, any measure, whether it tend to the advancement of your public nuerest, or to the furtherance of your private ad nwtage. Neither should my frankness render less sccept- able to you, this sincere record of my thanks, for the very courteous and kind manner with which I have been received by all, and especially is my most sincere gratitude due to my independent and warm-hearted supporters. I remain, Gentlemen, With much sincerity and respect, Your obliged and faithful servant, Your obliged and faithful servant, nOvVEL GWYN. Castle of Brecon Hotel, 27th January, 13G6. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECKNOCK AND THE TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, It is now Three Months since I last addressed Yoti, and the time is drawing near when you. will he called upon to elect your Representative in Parliament. The death of Lord Palmerston, who for so lany years conducted the affairs of this Country, Is felt by all as a national loss. Lord Russell has been called upon to lead the LIberal Party, and a Reform Bill will be brought forward under his auspices. I am in favour of a considerable extension of the Electoral Franchise, ftiid wish to see a better representation of the edu- cated and working classes without pledging my- Self to the details of a measure not yet before the Public, my support will be given to the principle 01 any Reform Bill which shall command the ge- neral approval of the Liberal party. I shall be ready to lend my aid in favour of the %of Church Rates, being desirous of deal- r'' £ w^h those who dissent from the Estab- »-e k lrch, and having no fear that she will sutier by SUch a meflSure- ° I need hardly repeat that I shall give a firm and mdepen ent support to a Liberal Government. The very kind reception I have met with, and the distinct promises j have received, leave me no doubt that you will return me your Member. I have the honour to be, <0RKNTLEMEN, Your obedient Servant, BRECKNOCK. Brecknock, January 8th, 1866. BRECON AID IiKKTHYR TYDPIL JUNCTION RAILWAY. HALF-YEARLY MEETING.

JL :J k- OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWEL. G _ENTLEMEN;- In consequence of the retire- ment of two out of the three Candidates who. sought your suffrages for the forthcoming Election, l to represent you in the Commons House of ament, I have issued this, my Second address. The various political questions, pro and con, which have been brought before your notice, have only, in my opinion, been to ascertain whether the Borough is really liberal or conservative. The fact that the most liberal and greatest conservative Candidates have retired, is a decided proof that it, is neither the one or the other. Feeling that there are a number of Electors and Non-electors who are not represented in their social and political interests, I am desirous to go to the poll. In, order to enable me to do so with pure, conscien-, tious, and liberal motives, I beg to offer you, ont^ and all," my best services in that Department oiL Trade in which I am conversant, and any measure you wish to bring before my notice, shall have lll';1 earnest and devotcd attention. r- The Noble Earl is in favor of the extension of. the Franchise, Howel Gwyn, Esq., in favor of the, conscientious abolition of Church Rates, and Dry Price, in favor of the total abolition, and the great- est extension of the Franchise. In applying the- above Candidadates1 principles to Business views, Howel Gwyn, Esq., is of the old fashioned Bnsi/ ness Men, small select Trade, with enormous Pro- fits Dr. Price, of the modern" Fire-eaters," who- wish to make people believe that he is doing alk his Business at 20 per cent. less than Costs Priced- Lord Brecknock, like the more sensible Tradesman,, avoids the two extremes, and wishes to live by faifc- dealings, with merely Remunerative Profits and- Quick Returns. Electors,— As there are two Can*.] didates left, (His Lordship snd rays elf, )'cann o t we both look after your interest—one your Political( the other your Social—so that on the Day of Elecx.. tion you will exclaim, Brecknock and Phipps for. Brecknock." It gives me great pleasure to return you my most heartfelt thanks, for the kind reception and support I have received on all occasions of my vaasiug, in and out of your Borough.
