ELECTION MOVEMENTS IN SOUTH WALES. (kor a dvertising columns contain addresses from Viscount Emlyn offering himself in the Tory in- tercit- for the County of Pembroke, and J. M. Child, Esq.. of Begelly House, in the Liberal in- tcret, fcr the United Boroughs of Pembroke, letiby, Milford, and Wiston. We have also been tkvetvred with copies of addresses issued to the electors of these boroughs by Sir James Graham and Str John Ower. (which cannot appear, hut as advertisements) the former announcing that cir- cumstances have occurred" which compel him to retire, and the latter offering himself as the suc- cessor of the renegade Baronet, merely stating that he will not trouble the electors with a pro- fession of his public principles, which are known to them all." The addresses of the two Torv candidates are remarkable for their vague and in- definite character, alth-augh die patties to whom •they concern are fully aware of the rampant and uncompromising Toryism of both the Noble Lord and the Hon. Baronet, We have yet to learn whether a reform, an anti-monopolist, candidate, will be brought forward to oppose the noble scion of the house of Cawdor, but the honest and inde- pendettt electors of the boroughs above alluded to, n ho have any regard for the sacred principles of liberty, justice, and humanity, will have an oppor- tunity of throwing otf the iron yoke of Tory* ism which they have so long submissively worn. Mr. Child, we are assured, has every prospect of success. We shall return to the subject in our next We have received these addresses at a late hour, and have not room for further comment. We may, however, remark that the Tories of this borough have been moving heaven and earth to seduce some unhappy dupe to take the field in opposition to our excellent representative, David Morris, Esq., and we understand that they talk of bringing forward, as a sort of forlorn hope, J. Banks Davies, Esq. of Myrtle Hill. The idea, however, is absurd he would not, pon honour, have the shadow of a chance, notwithstanding his high attainments. No one but a madman would, in fact, dream of contesting this borough in the Tory interest; in proof of which a poor man called Kin-don-wiie would be a fit inmate for a lunatic asylum—has beenactïvely canvassing the Tory electors dnring the past week. Since the above was written, we have been in- formed that a Lieut.-Colonel Copland, of Sloane- street, London (we are particular in putting the gentleman's addition), is to contest the Cardigan Boroughs in opposition to Mr. Pryse Pryse, the descendant of our Welsh Princes. Upon what this unknown gentleman rests his claims to notice we know not, but the Conservative interest of Cardiganshire must be at a low ebb, indeed, if the United Boroughs are to become the prey of any deigning Saxon, who has the impudence to step -before the landed gentry of that comity-
