TO THE ELECTORS OF THE BOR:OUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, AS it is certain that a Dissolution of Parliament will soon, take place, X avail my- self of this opportunity of informing you that it is my intention to solicit a renewal of that trust which you have for the last two years so kindly reposed in me. I have, as you are aware, supported a Govern- ment which is admitted, even by opponents, to have displayed great talent and ability in the administra- tion of the various departments of the State. The Foreign Affairs of this Kingdom have been conducted with judgment and discretion by Lord Stanley, and British influence in foreign countries much augmented. The Home Secretary, by firmness and determina- tion, has been the means of most effectually sup. pressing that evil spirit of Fenianism, which during the past winter so seriously threatened the peace and happiness of the country. The people of this Kingdom are likewise indebted to Her Majesty's Government, not only for their judicious selection of Lord Napier as Commander- in-Chief of the Abyssinian Expedition, but for all the foresight and care with which the arrangements for the supply of the Army, so necessary to secure success, were made by the Secretary of State for India. The Government also, with the assistance of Par- liament, has affected, as you are well aware, a large extension of the Elective Franchise, from which I have no doubt that the best results will ensue, and I am also satisfied that the important trust confided to you will be made use of in accordance with that just character for probity and manliness which dis- tinguishes the industrial classes of this great country. One of the first subjects that must occupy the attention of the new Parliament will no doubt be the question of the Irish Church. To its Dis- establishment and Disendowment I shall give as hitherto my conscientious opposition, being con- vinced that it will tend to the serious danger of Protestantism, and to the rights of all property, and will by no means conduce to the peace and prosperity of Ireland, which is an object so much desired by us all. I am well aware that there are anomalies in that Church which require to be redressed, and when the report of the Commission that has been sitting on the subject is published, I shall be disposed to support any well considered scheme that may be recommended by it for the removal of those anomalies. I have only to add, that should you do me the honor of again electing me as your Member-which from the very hearty promises of support I have met with during my canvass, and especially so from my new Constituents, I am sanguine enough will be the case-I will in return do, as I have hitherto done, all in my power to promote your public and private interests. I have the honour to remain, Gentlemen, Your faithful and obliged Servant, HOWEL GWYN. Duffiyn, 24th August, 1868. [1021 TO THE ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, HAVING at length completed a careful and minute Canvass, it has now become my pleasing duty to thank you most cordially for the reception you have given me. When I last had the honor of addressing you, I ventured to anticipate such a result; but I have now the unqualified grati- fication of adding that the majority in my favor will be of so triumphant a character as to convince me that since I have been your Representative in Parliament my humble and consistent services have been recognized and appreciated by you. Under these circumstances, one remaining hope, I had not hastily cherished, has (I regret to say) all but departed, namely,—with the honest belief of so decided a majority in my favor,—that the peace and tranquillity of the Town would not be disturbed or further interfered with. However, to remove any doubt from the minds of my opponents, I now request your early attendance at the poll, in order speedily to ensure that victory, of which I reasonably entertain not even the slight- est anxiety or doubt. Again thanking you for your kindness, I remain, Gentlemen, Your much obliged and obedient Servant, HOWEL GWYN- Buckingham House, Brecon, Nov, 6, 1868. [1160 IMPORTANT NOTICE. A MOST FAVOURABLE OPPOR.

GENTLEMEN, HAVING now completed a Canvass of the Electors of the Borough, and of the Town of Llywel, I am able, with the liveliest satis- faction, to announce a success surpassing even my expectations, sanguine as they were. I have now only, in warmly thanking my friends, to urge them to a continuance of those exertions hitherto so conspicuously successful, and, with that continued assistance, I am persuaded that the con- test will be brought to a triumphant issue. There are some Electors whom I have been unable personally to see, but I trust that they will not attribute that inability on my part either to deficient energy or want of courtesy. I am, Gentlemen, Your faithful servant, HUGH POWEL PRICE. Castle Madoc, Sept. 17, 1868. [1066 TO THE FREEHOLDERS AND ELECTORS OF THE COUNTY OF BRECON. GENTLEMEN, THE present Parliament will shortly be dissolved, and I once more venture to solicit at your hands a renewal of that confidence which you have generously reposed in me during the past ten years, and, if re-elected, you may rest assured that I shall continue to give an independent support to a Conservative Government. The great question at present before the Country is the Disestablishment and Disendowment of the Irish Church, and as it is my firm belief that such a measure, if carried into effect, will not lessen, but rather increase religious animosity and discord in Ireland, I shall give it my conscientious opposition, and especially as I also consider it the first step towards the severance of Church from State in this Realm. I am of opinion that the Administration of the Public Service might be carried on with greater regard to economy, and therefore any measure, which may be with safety introduced into the next Parliament for the reduction of the Expenditure of the Country, and consequently of taxation, shall have my earnest and best support. I am fully alive to the necessity, of an extended system of Education, but am opposed to any com- pulsory rate for that purpose. I regret that the "Metropolitan Foreign Cattle Market Bill," introduced during the last Session, was withdrawn, as I believe it would have operated as a safeguard against the danger of Cattle Plague in this Country, and at the same time have guar- anteed a supply of animal food to the consumer. I trust, however, that a similar measure will be introduced into the next Parliament. I consider the Tax upon Malt an unjust tax, and shall continue to vote for its abolition. The present Government has successfully carried a Reform Bill, by which the County and Borough Franchise has been liberally extended to classes in whose attachment to the institutions under which so much happiness and freedom are enjoyed I have the utmost confidence. Should you confer upon me the much valued pri- vilege of again representing you in Parliament, I shall endeavour, by the closest attention to your local as well as general interests, to merit a contin- uance of that confidence which you have hitherto so kindly placed in me, and which I assure you I most sincerely and highly appreciate. I have the honor to subscribe myself, Gentlemen, Your faithful and obedient Servant, GODFREY CHARLES MORGAN. Mansion House, Brecon, 25th September, 1868. [1090 BRECON BOROUGH ELECTION. To the Editor of the BRECON COUNTY TIMES. —A report; being in circulation that I am indifferent to Mr. Gwyn's success in the forthcoming contest, I lose no time in giving it the most unqualified and emphatic contradiction; though had the report been confined to the gentlemen more immediately interested, and those who know me, I should not have thought it necessary to address you. Political consistency is, and always with me has been, a sort of political pole-star, and for many reasons has produced satisfaction and pleasure,— not, however, equal to the essential pleasure I felt when Mr. Gwyn entrusted to me his decision on so momentous an occasion—one where similar interests of an esteemed relative were in the opposite scale,— for a higher compliment than this, in the annals of Parliamentary contests, was never conferred by one man upon another and I can only in my opinion, properly discharge so deep an obligation by the most zealous and indefatigable exertion in his favour. I never hesitated, having no doubt as to my own part, and entertaining little as to the result of a canvass, upon an appeal to the electors; and I can now, after many weeks' canvass, declare that I most implicitly believe Mr. Gwyn will be returned as our future representative by a far larger proportionate majority than he was in 1866. J I am, Sir, Yours obediently. DAVID THOMAS. Brecon, 1st October, 1868. [1091 LONDON NEWSPAPERS Posted by Morning and Evening Mails with undeviating regularity.

SIR—I was present at a meeting con- vened in our Town-hall on Monday evening last, and saw and heard much that was calculated to create painful emotions in the breast of every honest and honourable man, no matter what may be the complexion ofjhis political views. The pro- ceedings were opened in a brief but temperate speech in Welsh by the Rev. D. Edwards, minister of Watergate Chapel, who afterwards called on the Rev. Dr. Thomas, of the Baptist College, at Ponty- pool,'to address the meeting. This gentleman, who began in Welsh, but finding the chariot wheels of his eloquence dragging rather heavily in that ancient tongue, soon exchanged it for that of the Saxon. In this language he was apparently more at ease, and lost no time in conveying to his audience a specimen of rare skill in the art of flinging scurrilous abuse and calumnies against those whose political opinions are not in unison with his own-The Tory Government and Mr. H. Gwyn, M.P., shared between them, not unequally, the pun- gent vituperations of this Reverend Minister' of the Gospel, to which was added a stirring appeal to all the electors and non-electors present to turn out the one from Downing Street, and the other from the Hall of St. Stephen. Then came the monster grievance, = the Irish Church,—against which were hurled all the anathemas of the Vatican, backed up by the fulminations of the Liberation Society. Among other trite and oft refuted fallacies he made the following assertion, viz.:—" There are at present 199 Parishes in Ireland, with Ecclesiastical revenues, but without a single Protestant Inhabitant." These words were distinctly uttered, whereupon the Rev. Rees Price, Vicar of St. David's, challenged the accuracy of the statement, and called on the speaker to verify it; and in answer to a chorus of voices, advanced to the platform, and manfully repeated his challenge. In the meantime, the Revd. Doctor had relapsed into a state of mute quiescence, seated like a culprit on his chair, and apparently meditating what to say for himself. Mr. Price then stated that possibly 199 Civil Parishes maybe found in Ireland without a Protestant Inhabitant; and the Doctor recovering from his perplexity, and taking his cue from this remark, stated that waswhat he meant. Now if so, why did he not guard himself against misconception in the first instance ? Why did he not explain that a Civil Parish is a part only, and often a small part, of the Ecclesiastical Parish, which in Ireland frequently occupies a large and extensive area P Why did he so equivocate, as to virtually state that there are in Ireland 199 Parishes, each a a distinct benefice, with its endowment and clergyman, and yet without a Protestant inhabitant within its limits P Why did he not tell the fact which is literally true, and inform his audience that there is but one Ecclesiastical Parish in all Ireland without a Protestant inhabitant—no, not even a Baptist; but that the clergyman of that Parish ministers to a congregation considerable in point of numbers gathered from neighbouring parishes? If this clergyman has been guilty of neglect, a Baptist minister has earned no right to taunt him with his fault. The Reverend Doctor then favoured the meeting with the text of a political sermon which, by his own account, he had preached in chapel on the previous Sabbath evening. If the sermon was as novel as the interpretation given to the text, I can imagine that the effect on the Congregation was somewhat similar to that pro- duced on the erudite Professors of the Brecon Inde- pendent College, who, when appealed to by the Doctor as to the correctness of his rendering, gave no audible or visible sign of acquiescence. These grave and reverend divines probably could not conscientiously agree with the Doctor's Hermeneutics. The speech terminated in a gross attack on certain gentlemen connected with the Baptist persuasion in Brecon, who conscientiously entertain Conservative opinions in Politics. The torrent of vulgar abuse, witless sarcasm, incongruous and offensive epithets, which this rabid assailant showered on gentlemen who are not only liberal supporters of the Baptist cause at Brecon, but also of the College at Ponty- pool (over which he presides), as well as other Colleges in Wales, caused a strong revulsion in the minds of many in the Hall. He displayed not only ingratitude towards his benefactors, but intolerable arrogance in presuming to dictate to those who have as much right as he has to form and entertain political opinions. A NON-POLITICAL DISSENTER. Brecon, November 11, 1868. [1169 BRECON BOROUGH ELECTION. To the Dissenting Electors of the Borough of Brecon who support Howel Gwyn, Esq., M.P. BROTHER ELECTORS, IT is now NOTORIOUS in the Towns of JL Brecon and Llywel that several Dissenting Ministers and leading Deacons among the English and Welsh Congregations are putting the reli- gious Screw upon you who have promised to vote for Mr. Gwyn,—that in some Chapels you are threatened with exclusion, if you keep your promises, in other Chapels you are threatened with being branded, and your names posted up as "Black Sheep." These and other means of intimidation are used and practiced by your Ministers and Deacons in order to restrain you from voting for Mr. Gwyn-and in other cases in order to induce you to vote for Mr. Price, many other devices and contrivances are both openly and privately practiced by Men who ought to shztn such things, to impede, prevent, and other- wise interfere with the free exercise of your Votes, long since promised to Mr. Gwyn, which with other undue influences are unceasingly employed. BROTHER ELECTORS, do not be frightened by any such threats of degradation, damage, harm, or loss, which you are menaced with by your Ministers, Elders, and Deacons, but refer their attention to an Act of Parliament passed in the 17th and 18th years of the reign of Her present Majesty, chapter 110, section 5 of which enacts "That every person who shall, directly or indirectly, himself, or by any person on his behalf, make use of, or threaten to make use .of, any force, violence, or restraint, or inflict or threaten the infliction, by him- self or by or through any other person, of any injury, damage, harm, or loss, or in any other manner, practice intimidation upon or against any person in order to induce or compel such person to vote or refrain from voting, or on account of such person having voted or refrained from voting at any election, or who shall, by abduction, duress, or any fraudulent device or contrivance, impede, prevent, or other- wise interfere with the free exercise of the franchise of any Voter or shall thereby compel, induce, or prevail upon any Voter: either to give or to refrain from giving his vote at any election shall be deemed to have committed the offence of undue influence, and shall be guilty of misdemeanour, and shall also be liable to forfeit the sum of fifty pounds to any person who shall sue for the same, together with full costs of suit." These Divines, both Clerical and Lay, MAY, after this, let you alone to exercise the franchise given you by Mr. Gwyn and his party according to your own convictions—if not you have your remedy.

Brecon, 1st Oct., 1863. [17 BRECON BOROUGH ELECTION. MR. SAMUEL MORLEY, the LIBERATION SOCIETY, and the REV. CANON GIRDLESTONE, of Bristol. A Word of good sound advice and counsel -jLjL to the "Political Independent Preachers" who "spout" in favor of H. P. Price, Esq., the "Anti- State Church" Candidate for the Borough of Brecon and Town of Llywel. Always judge of A CANDIDATE BY THE COMPANY HE iKEEPS. Common Sense. But even in Great Britain the spoliation of the Church in Ireland would not be without its effect. Confiscation is contagious; and when once a commu- nity has been seduced into Plunder, its predatory acts have seldom been singlo.Disraeli. Mr. Morley, the Liberal Candidate for Bristol, is an influential, rich, "Independent Laymanand a Liberal in Politics, and he has just said to Canon Girdlestone (who is also a Liberal in Politics),— That he, Mr. Morley, has no wish to see any attach made upon, or any scheme originated for, the Disestablishment, and Disendowment, of the Church of England." Mr. Morley is ashamed of the Liberation Society," -He admits that he has contributed to its funds, but he has never attended meetings of its Committees, takes no active part in its management, has thought many times that his want of concurrence in some of the objects as defined in the Prospectus (of the Liberation Society), and his dislike of extreme state- ments made by some of its Supporters, rendered it doubtful if he ought to BELONG to that Society." Well done! Mr. Morley; you, at least, are an honest man. You are very properly ashamed of the attempts made by Political Preachers," of the "Independent Sect," at 11 Confiscation" and Spo- liation." WOEKING MEN AND ELECTOBS OF BRECON, the motives, of PROFESSORS !-I should say Mr. Morris, and Mr. Roberts, and the Revs. Henry Griffiths, Solomon" Williams, and W. Davies, the Political Preachers,—are simply to obtain Political Power over their innocent and inoffensive flocks, in order to advance their OWN private positions. If WORTHY Divines had, since their Settle- ment as Tutors, and PASTOBS, displayed half as much (aye, one-tenth) of the zeal and perseverance for the conversion and Salvation of their hearers as they now EXHIBIT in their Political night raids" disturbing your slumbers, and endea- vouring to induce you to break the most solemn promises you have made,—Brecon would long ere this have become another Terrestrial Paradise," and the Inhabitants thereof the most religious, happy, and virtuous people "YnNgwalia wen." Oh! ye Political Tutors of Colleges, and Political Ministers of the Gospel, who strain at a gnat and swallow a camel," go to the honest, conscientioust pious, and good Fisherman of Castle Street,"—take a lesson from him,-follow him into the Cottages of the Poor, the Destitute, and the Afflicted, and aban- don your Political Pharisaical Ways. You who profess to be Ambassadors of Peace," to visit the Afflicted, the Widows and the Fatherless, and who are paid for it (and the labourer is worthy of his hire," if he is honest), let me ask you seriously,— Is not the cure of souls a load sufficient ? Are not your holy Stipends paid for this ? Were you not bred apart from wordly noise To study souls, their cures, and their diseases. The Province of the Soul is large enough To fill up every cranny of your time, And leave you much to answer if one wretch BE DAHN'D by YOUB NEGLECT." DRYDEN. A WORKING MAN AND A DISSENTER.

BROTHER ELECTORS, AS a Nonconformist 1 naturally feel con- siderable interest in the coming contest, and am not ashamed to say that the Disestablishment of the Church in Ireland is not the only, or perhaps in- deed, real question, before us. I' L true we are in- terested in the Disestablishment of the Irish Church, because we believe it to be a speedy forerunner of the Disestablishment and Disendowment of the .Church in Wales, and this in common honesty we must acknowledge is the only light in which we as Nonconformists view the question. As this is the case, is it not high time to enquire of Mr. H. P. Price, whom many of us are inclined to support,— Whether he is prepared to vste for the Disestablish- ment and Disendowment of the Welsh Church? If Mr. Price has not considered this point, let him do so before the Nomination day, so that we may know before it is too late, whether he means to extend his liberality of opinion to us in Wales to the same ex- tent as he dees in Ireland. Let us have from him his honest straightforward answer, "Yes" or "No." "Now" is the time for plain dealing. If there is Injustice in the Church of Ireland, how much more in the Church in Wales ? Grievances at home should be redressed before we Welshmen go to the Sister Island. A NONCONFORMIST, Brecon, 11th November, 1868. [1168 ELECTION OF A KNIGHT FOR THE COUNTY OF BRECKNOCK.
