PRESENTATION TO THE HON. HUGH CAMPBELL. The first day of the new year will be memor- able to some oi the inhabitants of the neighboui- h jod of Y.Htrai'ffiu, Lland'itv.ry. As the readers of THE -JOURNAL wiii remember, tneHolI. H'IZli Frederick Vaughan CtllllJbell, Viscount Einlill's eldest son, attained his majority on th., 21st of June last, when the fanners and others 111 tht respective localities wheie the extensive property of the Earl Cawdor lies, joined together to cele- I brate the happy event by means of sports, bon-fires, &c. At Golden Grove tli,- rejoiong-s were postponed, owing to the absence of the family from home but OIl the 16th of Sep- tember, the day finally fixed for them, grand festivities were the order of the day, to which all the Carmarthenshire tenants were invited. On the latter date, presentations were made to the young gentleman by the tenants of the Golden Grove and Newcastle Etnlyn estates, but owing to some circumstances the tenants of rhd V^rad-; tiin estate had nothing ready to present, although they were looking forward to having the grati- fication of showing their appreciation of the auspicious event in some tangible form. The I fact of their going down empty-handed when the tenants from other districts had their illumin- ated addresses and their plate to present, laid them open to the charge of being disloyal, but nothing could be wider of the mark. The tenants in this hilly district are loyal to the core. As soon as subscriptions were asked they were forthcoming beyond the expectations of the most sanguine, and the committee were enabled to obtain a very handsome solid silver "Loving Cup' from Messrs Mappin Bros., in Regent- street, London. On Nevv Year's Day the presen- tation was made, and the deputation appointed by the farmers to represent them on the occasion consisted of the Rev Eben. Morgan and Messrs John Morgan, local agent on the estate Evan £ *vies Du*oedydd William Jones, Ystradffin tTVV,, Thomas, Nantgwyn and David Thomas, Dolfallt. The Rev E. Morgan, in making the presenta- tion, said Sir,—I feel greatly honoured in being asked to represent my fellow-tenants in the district of Llandovery on this occasion, when we are so kindly permitted to approach you to renew our heartfelt congratulations on your attaining your 21st birthday, and again to express our fervent hopes and prayers for your happiness and prosperity throughout the long life, which, we trust, is now opening out before you. We cannot but regard it as an omen of good fortune to your house, that your noble chieftain should, like Her Majesty, our Queen and Empress, have been granted the satisfaction of seeing the second heir to the throne attaining his majority. This is a date when earnest duties and grave responsibilities are taken up. We trust that your happy present is but a joyous prelude to a brilliant future-a future in which you will be able to bestow on all around, and above and beneath you that priceless gift-the gift of a high example. We re- member with undiminished gratitude the never-to-be-forgotten day when the Earl Cawdor came up among us to witness the dedication of his magnificent gift, to the eternal worship of Almighty God. And we fondly cherish the hope that some auspicious event may, ere long, bring us the gratification of showing you and Viscount Emlyn the hearty welcome that those living in our mountainous homes know how to give to those they love and respect. When we had the honour of enjoying Viscount Emlyn's splendid hospitality last Septem ber, it was a grief to us that we were then unable to offer you any token of our esteem and regard. And, now, to-day, in asking you to do us the kindness of accepting this Loving Cup I assure you that nothing but the pure wish to honour one we love to honour has prompted us to solicit the favour of your accepting it at our hands. And now our prayer is: 'lVlayevery blessing that this world and the next can afford be yours,' and 'May the love of the Lord ever ahide with thee.' The lIon. Hmh Campbell thanked the depu- tation very kindly for the very valuable present they made him, and desired them to convey his thanks to all the tenants that had subscribed. H.e also expressed his gratification with the go >d- will existing between the tenants and their noble landlord, and in coucLision wished all a very happy new year. Viscount Emlyn sent his conveyance to meet as well as to send back the deputation to the station, and they had the honour of taking luncheon with the family, and before leaving Golden Grove, where a couple of hours or more were spent most happily, Viscount Emlyn, accompanied by his two eldest sons and a friend, gave another hour of his valuable time to escort the deputation through the gardens, over the grounds, and the farm buildings to see the stock, &c. This was an hour of a great treat and enjoyment to the farmers, who evinced a lively interest in every- thing around.
