¡nlititnI an!} 1tdinn &fnielIi,gtna. MONTGOMERYSHIRE.—Mr. C. W. Wynn commenced an electioneering campaign at Llanrhaiadr yesterday (Fri- day). EFFORTS are being made to induce Mr. Gladstone to deliver a political address in Glasgow during his visit to the north. THE Marquis of Hartington, the Duke of Argyll, Sir Charles Dilke, and other distinguished Liberals have been entertained by the Earl of Derby at Knowsley. CARMARTHEN.—Mr. John Glassbrook, colliery pro- prietor, Swansea, has announced his intention to con- test the Carmarthen Boroughs in the Conservative interest.. FURTHER PROROGATION OF PARLIAMENT. — The Liberals have proved to be quite wrong in their anti- cipation that at the Privy Council meeting held at Bal- moral on Tuesday the Royal warrant would be drawn for the immediate dissolution of Parliament. The Privy Council met, and the result is that her Majesty has issued a proclamation for the further prorogation of Parliament from the 1st of November to Friday, the 19th day of December. The convocations of the provinces of Canterbury and York are also prorogued to Saturday, the 20th day of December. LIBERAL DEMONSTRATION AT MANCHESTER.—Lord Hartington and Mr. Bright attended a Liberal demon- stration at Manchester on Saturday. The speech of the noble Lord was comparatively brief, owing to the state of his voice. He expressed a confident hope that the verdict at the next election would be in their favour, but if it should be against them a great load of respon- sibility would be removed from Liberal members. He admitted the existence of differences of opinion amongst the Liberals, but contended that they were a necessity of Liberal existence. Mr. Bright thought that upon the verdict which the constituencies gave would depend the opinion of posterity upon the conduct of the present generation. Our rivals were the people of our own race on the American continent. They numbered fifty millions, "and," added the right hon. gentleman, "happily for them they have not yet bred a Beaconsfield or a Salisbury to misdirect their policy and to waste their resources." CONSERVATIVE DEMONSTRATION AT BIRMINGHAM.— Sir M. Hicks-Beach, M.P., was present at a banquet and public meeting in connection with the Annual Conference of Delegates of Conservative Associations held on Saturday at Birmingham. At the public meet- ing the right hon. baronet was presented with an address, and in reply to this and to a resolution ex- pressive of unabated confidence in the policy of the Government made a speech, in the course of which he reviewed the public events of the past few years. He pointed out that in foreign and colonial affairs, the party to which he belonged could not, in justice to the best interests of the Empire, have done otherwise than they had done. Those interests could not be confined within the narrow limits of the United Kingdom, and such a policy would have conduced neither to the prosperity of England nor to the cause of humanity. Sir M. Hicks-Beach, being entertained at luncheon at Birmingham on Monday by the Conservative Club of that town, made a speech, which was principally devoted to a reply to Mr. Bright's observations on Saturday at Manchester. He said he agreed with the right hon. gentleman that if the Liberals had been in power there, would have been no danger of war with Russia, or with Afghanistan but the reason would have been because Russia would by this time, have been in Constantinople, and the Ameer practically a vassal of that power. The policy of the Government on the North of India and in Africa had been one of defence and not of dominion. He defended the financial measures of the Government, and showed how, in 18(51, Mr. Gladstone took the same course as the Chancellor of the Exchequer was taking now. He pointed to the success of the Ministry with the Irish University Bill; and observed that Mr. Bright s remark about the land in question requiring to be dealt with with a stronger hand was, in the face of the present agitation in Ireland, almost reckless in its wickedness.
