GENTLEMEN,-In consequence of the retire- ment of two out of the three Candidates who sought your suffrages for the forthcoming Election, to represent you in the Commons House of Parlia- 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, one and all," my best services in that Department of Trade in which I am conversant, and any measure you wish to bring before my notice, shall have my earnest and devoted attention. 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 Dr. Price, in favor of the total abolition, and the great- est extension of the Franchise. In applying the above Candidadates' principles to Business views, Howel Gwyn, Esq., is of the old fashioned Busi- 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 all his Business at 20 per cent. less than Costs Price Lord Brecknock, like the more sensible Tradesman, avoids the two extremes, and wishes to live by fair dealings, with merely Remunerative Profits and Quick Returns. Electors,—As there are two Can- didates left, (His Lordship snd myself,) cannot we both look after your interest-one your Political, the other your Social-so that on the Day of Elec- 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 can- vassing, in and out of your Borough. I am, yours respectfully, HENRY PHIPPS, Red House, High Street, Brecon. BEECON AID MEETHYR TYDFIL JTOCTIOI RAILWAY. HALF-YEARLY MEETING. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that the Thirteenth Ordinary Half-yearly General Meeting of the Proprietors of the Brecon and Merthyr Tydfil Junction Railway Company, will be held at the Offices of the Company, No. 7, Bank Buildings, Lothbury, London, on TUESDAY, the 20th day of FEBRUARY, 1866, at Four o'clock in the afternoon, for the purpose of transacting the ordinary business of the company. And also for the purpose of considering, and if it should be thought fit, of sanctioning the Conver- sion or Consolidation into General Capital Stock of all or any part of such of the shares in the capi- tal of the Company, or the whole of them, as are now unconsolidated, and in respect whereof the whole money subscribed shall have been paid up. The Transfer Books of the Company will be closed on and from the 7th day of February next until the day of the Meeting, both days inclusive. Dated the 27th day of January, 1866. W. ROBERTS, Secretary. TO THE BLBOTOE8 OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECKNOCK AND THE TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, It is now Three Months since I last addressed you, and the time is drawing near when you will be called upon to elect your Representative in Parliament. The death of Lord Palmerston, who for so many 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, and 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 of 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 abolition of Church Rates, being desirous of deal- ing justly with those who dissent from the Estab- lished Church, and having no fear that she will suffer by such a measure. I need hardly repeat that I shall give a firm and independent support to a Liberal Government. The very kind reception I have met with, and the distinct promises I have received, leave me no doubt that you will return me your Member. I have the honour to be, GENTLEMEN, Your obedient Servant, BRECKNOCK. Brecknock, January 8th, 1866.
