THE FlEDiSTRSBUTiON BILL.. The Division of Glamorganshire. The Boundary Commissioners at Bridgend. Major Tuilocb, one of the Commissions ap- pointed to enquire into the division of counties into electoral districts sat at Bridgend to-day, when there were present representatives of many of the political associations of the county, whilst several non-political bodies put in an appearance. Upon the case of tha Cardiff Corporation being brought forward, the commissioner replied that that he could not entertain it, as Parlianerit had already decidsd that Glamorgan must be divided into five districts. He also remarked that even if the extension of the borough should be ap- proved of by the commission, the representation of the town would not be affected--there would still be one member for Cardiff, The sitting occupied nearly two hours and a half, during which many gentlemen spoke of the various schemes, with which the public have been more acquainted, were suomitted to the commissioner. A communication from Sir Stafford Northcote was received at lifracombe to-day, replying to the invitation to contest a county division, placing his services at their disposal. Mr Magaiac, the member for Bedford borough, will contest the northern division of Bedfordshire. The Hon. Humphrey Sturt, son of Lord Alington, whl contest the Poole and Wimborne division of Dorset, as a Conservative. General Bayly, Boundary Commissioner, on Opening an inquiry at Glasgow to-day, intimated that he could not consider the question of extend- Jug the boundaries of the city, and could only consider tho divisions into wards. The Lord rovost, speaking far the Glasgow Corporation, ¡.;a;d the inquiry would, consequently, be merely secondary. The Commissioners ought to per- sonally investigate, hear parties, and then determine the boundaries otherwise, he toast protest against any definition of Wards within the present boundaries, and reo served the right to oppose the action of the Commissioners as detrimental to its interests. General Bailey repeated that his duties were rnerely administrative, whereupon the Lord Provost and delegates from the corporation again protested and withdrew. Representatives from surrounding suburban districts, desiring to be lcluded within Glasgow, and delegates from the Glasgow Liberal Association next handed in their nienioriais, protested and withdrew. General kayly then bbrd parties regarding the division of Glasgow into wards within the present boundaries according to the Commissioners' scheme.
