COtXTRY ic w 44 A brutal murder was committed on Friday evening* in a street called Blue-gate-fields, High-street, Shadwell, by two women named Mary Long, and Hannah Covington, on a gentleman aged sixty, named Thomas Briggs. The mother of Long had been a tenant of the deceased, who, a few months ago, distrained upon her for rent, after she had removed from his house. The daughter had frequently declared she would be revenged, and oil Friday evening the and Covington attacked him. when leaving the house of one of his tenants, with such ferocity that he died in a few minutes afterwards. The prisoners have been re- manded. ATTEMPT TO MURDF.R.— At Manchester, John Lovet, in the employment of Nfr. Ormrod, an ironfounder,was charged with shooting with intent to kill. As Mr. Newsham, who is a lodge-keeper in the service of Mr. Ormrod, Was going to Mr. Lawton's, in the London road, for some beer, on Monday night, he was shot by the prisoner under the left ear. Sergeant Fletcher saw Newsham lying down, and crying 0 God, I am murder- ed." He went in pursuit of the assailant, whom lie asked what could have induced him to be guilty of such conduct, and he said, Hew a two-faced and I am satisfied." A pistol, ten uaiis, and a ouantify ot powder and percus- sion caps were found in the prisoner's possession. The prisoner was remanded. The ball has been extracted, and the patient will recover. DREADFUI, MURDER AT HUDDERSFIF.LD.—On Satur- day night last, as Mr. Benjamin Whittel, jun., fancy manufacturer, of Stainland, near Halifax, was walking home from the Littleborough railway station, on his re- turn from Manchester market, he was shot dead through the head, about half-past ten o'clock, near the Barksland toll-gate, by some villain or villains, who robbed him of about 932. Suspicion has fallen on an individual with whom the unfortunate man was seen in company when passing through the toll-gate, who cannot now be found. The police, however, are on the look out.

ELECTION- RIOT AT LIVERPOOL AND FIVE PERSONS SHOT,- We regret to state that at Liverpool, after the nomination hml concluded, a desperate party fight took place, and attacks were made upon houses, inns. tkc. A UH)[) attacked the house of a Mr Casement, broke his windows amt seriously injuied his daughter with a brick bat. Upon this he fired two pistols loaded with slugs into the crowd and severely wounded four men and one woman. Mr. Casement was taken ioto custody to await the result. MURDER AT KN-AI;Lr.RBoRourH.-On Sat,irclfty ,-eek, Mr. Joseph Cocker, landlord of the White Hart public- house. was murdered by some personi who used the house; John Burlinson, Henry Nutter, and Charles Gill, who robbed his house of a quantity of silver. At first the murderers fled from the town, but returned again, and were directly taken prisoners when they confessed the fact and the manner of their crime. At an inquest since held, a verdict of" Wiiful Murder" was found against Burlinson as principal, and Nutter and Gill as accessories. DARING ATTEMPT AT MURDER AND HIGHWAY ROBBERY.—A young pian named Benjamin Nicholls, servant to Mr. Brittain, grocer, of Newport, Shropshire, was proceeding on horseback to the Donington-wood Iron- works. on Saturday morning week, with 15t. in copper, and in silver. for the purpose of paying the workmen's wftires, when he was waylaid oy a farmer servant of Mr. lirittawi, named Thomas Simms, who attempted to murder the young man by striking him on the head with n ham- mer. Nicholls was struck senseless, and the saddle bags, in which was the money, fell to the ground, but the horse "frightened by the attack and released from the heavy "weight of corn. bounded forward, and carried the intented victim out of the reach of his assailant. On recovering his cnoseiousuess he gave au alarm, and Simms was soon afterwards apprehended, as well as his wife, who, strange to say, was lurking close to the spot, at the time of the at- tack, for the purpose, no doubt, of assisting in the removal of the proceeds of his villiany. The money was found concealed in a drain, and Simms and his wife have been committed to Shrewsbury gaol for trial at the assizes. in in ■■■ mil, ———
THE ELECTIONS. Qur columns are so crowded with the election proceedings in our own locality, that we have been obliged tc omit all detail of what has been doing elsewhere. Before our next publication most of the County Elections will have terminated, and we shall then be able tö present a tolerably accurate list of the new Parliament to our readers. In the calculations of gains and losses by both parties np to Wednesday, we have detected several errors in favour of the monopolists; *e. hoi%,cver, --ive the returns as they appear in a Tory print, by which; it will be seen that Scotland and Ireland have yet to return 134 members, whilst the returns from the English counties and a few boroughs are still deficient by I lo:- ENGLAND AND WALES Tory members returned up to Wednesday morn. 210 Liberal ditto 180 Itetui-ns not yet received 110 Total members for England and Wales 500 SCOTLAND.

The Bêrough constituencies of England and Wales return 341 members, and the elections givc a majority of 9, on the borongh members, in favour I of the Ministry, The Tories will undoubtedly) gain in the counties, but we hope the united «librts of Scotland and Ireland in favour of our righteous cause will counterbalance the represen- tatives of the Monopolist landlords in the English counties, whose serfs are not allowed to think for themselves, much less to act in accordance with their convictions. Every individual connected with her Majesty's Government, whose election has come on, has, so far as we are aware, been returned, and many of them by the largest and most important constitu- encies. Among them are-Lord John Russell, for London; Lord Palmerston, for Tiverton Sir John Cam Hobhouse, for Nottingham The Chancellor txthe Exchequer, for Portsmouth; Mr. Macaulay, tor Edinburgh; Mr. Labouchere, for Taunton; Sir George Grey, for Devonport; Mr. Clav, for Tower Hamlets; Mr. Parker, for Sheffield; Mr. Vernon Smith, for Northampton; the Attorney 1 General, for Worcester; the Lord Advocate, for Leith Capt. Deans DanJa-, for Greenwich Lord Listowel, for St. Albans.

The proceedings at Llandilo on Tuesdav will amuse many of our readers. We hope to recur to j the subject in our next.
I W £ EK Ij Jl S3 i: T ZZ & P fXvF. j [F It 0 It OUR SPECIAL CIIRRKSPON I) I: N T. ] LONDON, JULY 7, 1 t 1. The elections h:ne not hit])crh)?u'tit'?out bv I any means so favourable to the Liberais as, from the goodness of their causc, and the immense importance of the measures on which the present Government have seen meet to appeal to tlle? popular voice, we had, and we think with strong reason, calculated. The tnth is, the supineness and shameful indifference with which the Liberals stood by and looked on, while, during the regis- trations last Summer, the Tories eagerly acted on the advice of Sir Robert Peel, are now receiving "their just recompense of reward." Added to this, the vast influence which the Parsons and Tory Squires possess in nearly all the smaller provincial cities and boroughs and further, the unscrupulous application of bribery, and once more we arrive at the unpleasant conclusion, which we have again and again impressed upon our readers, that, under the present constitution of the parliamentary franchise, it is utterly impos- sible for the public voice to be fully and fairly heard, or for the constituencies of the Empire to return to the popular branch of the National Senate such an imposing majority of genuinely patriotic and risrht-minded men as shall legislate in accordance with the spirit of the age, and the essential interests of the people. Toryism is at this moment making its last desperate rally, in behalf of the last strongholds which still enable it to make itself formidable to that equal and J equitable order of things, under the reign of which it would cease to have even a name. We read in the last book of the inspired volume of an impor- tant personage who had paid a visit to the earth, having great wrath, because his time was short"; and in like manner, the Tories, conscious that universal enlightenment will, by and bye, call forth the national voice against them with such irresistible effect as to render all their machina- tions for a continuance of their malign power nu gatory, are now moving heaven and earth, and putting in requisition every engine i, iiieh wealth or stratagem can supply, in order once more to see whether it be not possible for them to lengthen the reign of injustice, and, for a short space, at least, reap the full advantages of the monopolies of staple commodities, of law, of a simooaieal use j of church property, and, in short, of whatever it is the interest of a sulFerinir, an outraged, and a too, passive people to wrest from their gripe. To j that people an appeal is now made on behall of all that, constitutes right, and law, and justice, and permission to enjoy the common blessings of a beneficent Providence, without being unright- eously and rigorously taxed bv a handful of men who, under the protection of iniquitous laws, act as if "the earth and the fulness thereof" were made for them—as if the Almighty had bestowed on them a patent right to the bounties which He liatli declared arc for all. How they will respond to it is for time to show: but one thing is clear:- even should the monopoly-loving Tories obtain a temporary triumph, monopolies and class- interests are irrevocably doomed and with them Toryism must as assuredly fall as docs a structure when its supports are removed. It is now generally believed that another election will be rendered necessary before Christmas Of course, it will not take place till the new registrations shall have afforded the Liberals another chance 01 gaining that strength which experience has in- formed them they might at this moment have pos- sessed, and do not. From Canada the accounts are most gratifying. The Governor-General had met the first L'nion Parliament, and had delivered an address to its members replete with the most generous, liberal, ( and statesman-like views. TlYe document was, in all respects, worthy of him with w hom, as Poulett Thompson, President of the Board of Trade, the j and accomplished successor oiAsr. It i Is kisso I), and now a British Peer, by the title of Lord Sydenham, our readers must be familiar. The best spirit appeared to animate all the Member, aIHI p -acc and prosperity were their benign influences on these magniifcent Provinces. From the United States there is nothing new. The case of Macleod had, after an animated de- bate, been referred to a special committee. The finances were in a deplorably deranged condition. Ac home the elections absorb the attention and 1 thoughts of all. A few days will now decide which pf-.rty shall prevail, neither can possibly have such a majority as to insure for it such a preponderance as to enable it to live Ion! II The accounts of the quarter s revenue have jnst been pitblished. On the exl)ose Is favourable. Markets are still in much the same state as they were three weeks ago. Grain continues to advance. Meat rules very big-h, Railway shares are dull, and in many instances have declined. Consols were quoted yesterday at go. Manufac- tured goods move off rather briskly, but at very low prices. Lon,dou thins fast, and shopkeepers pull long faces. Commercial failures, we are sorry to say arc on the increase, especially in London.
LOCAL W E I I CARMARTHENSHIRE ELECTION. I Tuesday last was the day fixed for the election of the members for the County of Carmarthen. The morning was ushered in by the pealing of bells and firing of cannon. From about 8 a. m. until 11, a constant succession of horse- men and carriages kept passing through Llandilo on their way to Dynevor Castle, where the honourable candidates, the Hon. Col. liice Trevor and J. Jones, fAq. were to start from. An elegant and abundant dejeune a la foltr- chette waited the arrival of the cavalcade, and that hospi- tality for which the Castle of Dynevor has, and is likely to be, ever distinguished, was evinced in its wonted style on this occasion. About twelve o'clock a procession was formed, and began to move, headed by a company who bore banners, having inscriptions indicative of loyal sentiments, as well as expressive of the political bias of the party. Then came the Ab-Tewdwr band, and after it a numerous cavalcade; then carriages, amounting to between twenty and thirty, in the foremost of which were the honourable candidates and their proposers. The rear was formed of another numerous cavalcade. The weather was not propitious, yet not very bad, and a numerous attendance of pedestrians accompanied the procession. When the whole was in motion, and viewed in the Park, the etleci was both imposing and very pleasing. On reaching the Shire-Hail, the procession stoooed. and the different individuals composing it, entered, where the preliminaries were immediately commenced. These being disposed of, the Hig-h SherilF called upon the assembly to name any two worthy knights to serve them in Parlia- ment. E. P. Lloyd, Esq., of Glansevin, stepped forward and said, that he felt the greatest gratification in proposin'g now for the eighth time. the Hon. Col. Rice Trevor, as a fit and proper person to serve them in Parliament. He (Mr. L.) was sure that Col. H. Trevor would always, as he had done, take every care of the agricidtural and com- mercial interests of this county. air John Manseli teitalsoextremegiatihcationm having the honour of seconding that proposition. He eulogised his Hon. Friend, and fully approved of the course he had always pursued. Mr. Lloyd Davies next proposed his friend, John Jones. Esq., and entered, at considwable length, not upon any merits immediately attaching to his proposition, nor with a view ofinectingexigeticies no"- existing; hut Ins duoglot address was an able digest of certain leaders that have occupied the columns of the Times and Standard, the PfJsf, and John Bull, since the night that the Chancellor of the Exchequer aiinst;ced the budget; therefore.to those who care anything about such things, the argum< nts used by Mr. Davies on the questions of the Corn Laws, and Sugar and Timber Duties, are too well known to re- quire recapitulation and, farther to those who deign to g ance on views other than Conservative, the refutation o such arguments are equally fawiHar. But Air. Davies also touciied upon Church-rates and Poor Laws. With regard to the former he implored those opposed to them to consider tljrft sucn rates were a tax "upon the and that, therefore, any person taking land, calculates on the rate in doing so; and did the ratepayers think for a mo- ment that, it the rate were remitted, the landlord would not then make an equivalent addition to the rent? Of course, said Mr. D., they would. With regard to the Poor Laws, Mr. D. has found somewhere a calculation, the result of which he gave the meeting; but as the result is astounding, the data upon which it is founded are very doubtful. According to Mr. Davies, then, thirteen parts out of every twenty parts of all the money collected for the purposes of the poor, go to pay othccs ctlll under the New Poor Law! This is true, or it is not true, and Mr. Davies ought to have been well advised on the point before giving utterance to it. We bel ieve it too preposterous to be the fact, and we should have deemed >Tr. Davies too ingenuous to send forth such a mischievous claptrap oi. so important a sub- ject. We have stated that' Mr. Davies's address 110-, peculiarly adapted to present emergencies— he admitted ;his—he looked forward to the next time they siiould ricet. and for that, he (as, we suppose, the only I availab^le oracle) wished to prepare the electors. What he then told them was to occupy earnestly their minds, and to be the fireside topic of discussion between them and their neighbours. Mr. D. evidently looked forward to a content at no distant period, and if Ire were more eager upon any topic than another, it was upon that respecting the next registration. He trusted that every Conservative energy would be put forth upon that occasion. (Of* coitrse this is a hint for all parties.) It occurred to us during Mr. Davies's address, that he was labouring to outdo himself—he took the widest range available—he spoke for the future as well as for the present and past, and he seemed to be a prey to a pre- sentiment that he might not occupy his proud position at another time. In fact, he so vaticinated, and hence, we suppose, his enlarged discourse. The nomination of Mr. J ones was seconded by Daniel Prytherch. Esq., who went over a portion of the ground travelled by Mr. Davies. No other candidate bein? nominated, the Sherhf declared the Hon. G. It. Trevor and J. Jones, Esq., Jn)yc)ected. The Hon. and g.dIaat Colonel now addressed the meeting, and spoke with great candour and fairness for some time. He returned his most sincere thanks to the electors for the high honour they had once more bestowed upon him. and assured them that the pursuance of that course which had hitherto secured him their esteem, should still be persevered in by him. Whatever he might say in the course of his remarks, he should stu- diously endeavour to give no offence to any of his political opponents who might be present, and more so i with respect to those who were absent. He trusted I, e was right in the beliet, that however numerous his politi- cal opponents mig-ht be. that of personal opponents he I had none. The Hon. Gentleman now took a review of 1 the course pursued by the present Government, and Winch had ultimately brought upon it the vote of want of confidence. He censured them for coquetting one day with the Conservatives, and the next with the Radicals. He said that their vacillation made them unsafe and unfit for the country—measures that they had opposed one year, as a Government, were the next made open questions and the year after, were introduced as Govern. ment questions. fie could not place any confidence in such a Government, but should, as he had already done, give it his most strenuous opposition. Their lavish expenditure also, he thought, entitled them to no confi- dence. The present financial embarrassment was entirely the effect of their mismanagement. They had come into power with a surplus of about 21- millions a-vear, and the country was now in a deficiency on the last three years of about seven millions, making the country worse off by ten millions in all. What would any man present say, if his private affairs were so managed by an agent? Would that agent not be (lisiiiissed ? Or, to make the thing quite plain, suppose a man were to embark X3 in some speculation, and at the end of three years he found his £3 gone, and, in addition, he found himself in debt £7, wo ,id he not, if lie were in his senses, forego such a speculation, or have nothing to do with those who had so embarrassed him. Such, the Hon. Colonel declared, was the condition of the country at this moment, after ten years of Whig leg-islation. 1 he Hon. and gallant Colonel reviewed the defeats of the Government, and mentioned where the Conservatives had saved the Government from the Radicals, and where the Conservatives had stept in to rescue portions of the Empire from the tyranny of the Whigs. But for the Conservatives, he said, Jamaica would have lost her constitution, and, but for the Conservatives, the New Poor Law would have been rs-enacted, with harsher clauses. To the course of legislation, in the late Session, on the Poor Law, he had given his best attention during the divisions in com- mittee he had never been absent. The state of his bealth, lie was sorry to say, had not been very favourable, but he considered the provisions of the Poor Law so important, that he was resolved to give them his unwearied atten- tion, and that he would promise to do again. He believed he had never given the electors any kind of pledge; but upon this subject, he would pledge himself. The Con- servatives had obliged the Government to change the lease of the Commissioners from ten to five years-to forego their attempt at separating the children from the same buildings as their parents-to pen up in separate establishments the infirm, the old, and the insane. The intention also of burying those who died in workhouses in grave yards attached, was prevented by the opposition nf Sir R. Peel. He thought the course pursued by the Government respecting the Canadian insurrection in many instances had the effect of rather encouraging that insurrection than in putting it down. Meritorious c'Hicers, who had acted nobly in that affair, were to this day unrewarded, and positively nc?ected, whilst parties who had acted openly in opposition to the Canadian Government were now cherished and supported, ? or these, amongst many other reasons, he felt that he was pursuing a patriotic course by acting in opposition to the present Government. He again assured the electors that he should still continue to act in the same way. He thanked them again for the honour they had done him. Mr. Jones assured the electors, that he felt every gra- titude for the honour that had been so kindly conferred upon him a second time, and was happy to find that the course pursued by him in Parliament had met with their approbation. The very eloquent speeches that had al- ready been addressed to the meeting had embraced almost every topic that he could touch upon, and these topics had been so well discussed by the speakers, that it became unnecessary for him to detain them but for a very short time indeed, his doing otherwise would be an insult to the understandings of the electors; however, he could not help saying a few words. The case put by his lion, colleague respecting the man commencing with £;3, he thought very good: but there was in it a little discrepancy, and that he would endeavour to amend. His hon. col- league considered the man starting with £ :} of his oicn, "but, gentlemen (said Mr. J.) the Ministry are not usiiig their own money—they are using your money." I I c- (Mr. J.) w-oald give them a few instances to show how the Ministers did use that money. Mr. J. then referred to Sir John \Gwport'sanair,and ro thatof Lord Plunkett, and Lord Campbeii's; but he had not the candour to admit that Lord Campbeu is not to receive any pension in the event oi the present Government going out. Mr. J. is an old advocate, and therefore the force of habit initst coii- siderably interfere with anything like ingenuousness. Mr. J. also alluded -to the majority on Sir J. V. U«Her's motion of want of confidence, which was negatived by a majority of" 1;I this Mr. J. undertook to shew was no ma- jority at all, for (said he) about that number of placemen voted, giving judgment upon thcmsPlves. Why did not Mr. J. state to the meeting what the position was in which those stood who wre looking for place and certain of it, if the question were aHIrmed*, and who voted for it ? Did they Lot also V(.te confidence in them??Ivcs' Mr. Jones took the same view of the Poor Law as Col. Trevor, as- suring the meeting of his exertion to render it as lenient as possible; but deprecating, with the Hon. Colonel, any attempt to get back to the old law. Mr. J. said he voted for the address to her Majesty, respecting the imprisoned Chartists, on the belief that their punishment had been sufficient, and ifany parties were more culpable than others, such parties wre her Majesty's Ministers, and not the de- luded Chartists. Mr. J. took credit for havinghithertopur- sued an independent course, and he instanced, in support of it, his conduct with regard to tlve Privilege question, when he had differed in foto from the party that he generally acted with. That course he proposed and promised to pursue again. Mr. J. alluded to the question of religious toleration, and said, that his services in that cause gave him every claim oil the support of the Dissenter. lie had advocated and voted for the emancipation of the Catholics, and for the repeal of the Test and Corporation Acts. The conduct of the Dissenters new towards him he left for them to explain. He eulogized the Clergy and the Dissenting Ministers, and implored them to live in charity together. In speaking of the late majority of one, lie said, he considered it abundant for its nurnose it so happened that such a majority placed the House of Hanover upon the throne of these Yeahns. Surely, then, said the Hon. Member, such a majoritv is sufficient to oust a profligate and worthless Ministry. Mr. J. having concluded, Col. H. Trevor proposed that the thanks of the meeting be given to the High Sheriff. Mr. Jones having seconded the motion, it was carried with acclama- tion. The Hon. Members being now girt with swords, left the Hall, and mounted horses. The meeting com- menced, continued, and separated in the most pacific manner. The different gentlemen, whilst speaking, were occasionally cheered but the cheers were neither very loud nor long. The absence of the excitement and competition necessarily attendant on a contest, is quite sufficient to account for all appearance of lukewarmness. The two Members on horseback, preceded by banners and a band of music, and accompanied by a procession of electors, &c., progressed through the different streets of the town, and were received by their friends with every manifcstion of joy. With few exceptions, dinners, &c., were provided for all the electors at all the public-houses in the town. the grand affair beino- iho Shire Hall. THE DINNER __n I took place in the Town Hall, at four o'clock, and con- sisted of every tiling which the most accomplished epicure could desire. It was supplied by Mr. Tracey, of the Cawdor Arms, and the wines, which were furnished by Mrs. Evans, of the George Hotel, were also excellent. Sir John Manseli, liart., presided, supported by Capt. Edwarwes, as vice-president. Col. Trevor sat on the right, and Mr. Jones on the left of the Chairman. We observed at the head of the table J. Walters Phillips, Esq., (the High Sheriff), Daniel Prytherch, Esq., Rev. John Pugli, J. Banks Davies, Esq., Itees Goring Thomas, Esq., Rev. Mr. Green, of Courthenrv, David Pugh, Esq., Lewis Lewis, Esq., Dr. Lawrence, Capt. Thomas, of Caeglas, W. W. Du Buisson, Esq., of Glynhir, and E. P. Lluvd, Esq. There were also several clergymen present. After the removal of the cloth, the Chairman gave, "The Queen;" "The Queen Dowager;" "Prince Albert;" "The Princess Royal, and the rest of the Royal family -and may she soon be succeeded by a toasts were g iven without comment, and drunk with three times three cheers. The CHAIRMAN then said: The next toast which I have the honor to propose, you will all gladly receive. Without their united efforts, courage, bravery and firmness, this country would not have risen to the height of pilch to which it has—" The Army and Navy of Great Britain." CAPTAIN- EowAHDRs, having hcencaHed upon, said: I beg leave to assure you, that you have completely taken me by surprise, for I had not the slightest idea that my name would be mentioned on this occasion. To- day we have won a glorious victory in this town, more particularly so when 1 see nothing but unanimity around its. Gentlemen, allow me to return you my thanks for the honor you have done our Navy and Army; as an humble individual I will return thanks for the Army. Allow me to tell you one thing ten years ago, when the Reform Bit! took place-and I am happy to see there is no Reform here now—then the Army did their duty, and they will do so still in defending the Constitution of the country (uproarious cheers); and they will do so as long as either Army or Navy exists (renewed cheers, amidst which ('apt. Edwardes sat down "covered with glory.") The CIIAIRMAX Gentlemen, I am now about to pro- pose a toast which I am sure you will drink with spirit— Our revered Lord Lieutenant." Drunk with three times three. Col.

Ifith?s happened during the time I have been in your service, that I have been able to perform the duties of the station with any satisfaction to you, it is in consequence of the principles which I had instilled into me by him from my earliest youth (cheers). He always led me to aspire to be one of your representatives, as the greatest honour that could be bestowed upon me (cheers). The CHAIRMAN then ^vc: "The Bishop of this Dio-I cese." Drunk with three times three. Rev. D. A. WILLIAMS Sir,-l am sure I express the ,Sense of my professional brethren present, and the clergy generally in this diocese, when I say that we duly appre- ciate the compliment you have just paid us. I will take an opportunity of mentioning it to the Bishop, who will be highly gratified at having had his health drunk by so numerous, intelligent, and respectable a company as the present (cheers). TlieCIIAIII.AN: G eiitlemen, -Allow me to propose the High Sheriff. I am sure the utmost thanks is due to him for his impartial conduct in the chair this day. Drunk with three times three. J. WALTERS PHILLIPS, Esq., said: I feel particularly obliged to you for the manner in which you have drunk my health. It is a source of great gratification to me, that the business of this day has gone on so well, and with so much harmony between all. I hupe it will continue to the end of time (cheers). The CHAIRMAN Gentlemen,—The next toast I have to propose will he received with the greatest satisfaction. It is owing to your firmness on former occasions that we may consider that every thing has gone off to-day with so much harmony and good feeling (cheers). You have had explained to you by our late representatives, who I am rejoiced to say are our present represen- tanves,their various acts during the last Parliament, and I think that you must be unanimous in the opinion that on no one single occasion have they been otherwise than consistent with your feelings (Cheers). To those who wish well to the constitution of this country, as it has for ages past been carried on you have heard to-day the different details upon the various great questions now before the country. On that of the Corn laws we must all teel a great interest. It is a subject that no one can treat with indifference (Cheers). It is not anyone class in the community that has an interest in the Corn laws- or whether the law remains as it is—but every class in the community has a deep interest in it; perhaps, it' one class more than another, it is the poor man (cheers); the peasant who earns his daily bread by his hard labour, and who should be protected from every kind of oppression. Gentlemen, the avowed object of all such as wish for cheap bread—and of all such as wish a fixed duty,or, perhaps, I ii( i of should best represent their wishes by saying no duty at all I [ere Sir John was confounded, and stood looking very at the company for several minutes. He lifted his eyes to heaven for inspiration, but found nobody at home; Mr. Jones then tried to prompt him, but it was no go, he had fairly stuck in the mud, and could not flounder out again and after pausing full ten minutes, during which the company kept applauding him at intervals, he stammered out: If we look to other countries from whence the chief trade is expected to come to this country, in order to make up for the cheap- ness of grain grown in our own country, there you shall find that the peasantry arc in a most wretched state and condition; and I think no one here present wouid wish to see our own peasantry reduced to the same state. Gentlemen, I now propose to you the Members of the County. [Here are knock down arguments what a pity that Sir John has not an opportunity of enlightening the Senate on the subject of the Corn Laws; he evidently understands it well.] The toast was drunk with loud and long-protracted cheers, after which Col. TREVOR rose and said: (;elltlcmen,-Aftortlie re- ception which you have given to the toast which has just been proposed, it is reallv impossible for any one who has any feelings at all—leaving alone that feeling which I flatter myself I entertain, that feeling which every true Welshman will feel when received by his countrymen in the manner in which you have been kind enough to re- ceive my colleague and myself—I say, it is impossible to get up and thank you for the honour you have done us without the very deepest feelings (cheers). Gentlemen, by your exertions—as I told you this morning—on a former occasion, it has so happened, and happy air. I to say it has so dlallCcd, that we have had an election here to-day without a contest (cheers). Gratifying as it must be to iny colleague and myself to have been elected without opposition, there is one point on which we both agree in thinking that the absence of a contest is most gratifying, and it !s in consequence, as I hope from the unanimity -iii(i it is in is I hope froi-,i the ft('1111111I ty £, \.11.1. \.&0,10. "avu none Ul that exited feeling which we have formerly witnessed in this county (cheers), separating personal friends from each other, neighbours from neighbours, and interrupting the happiness of all social intercourse (cheers). I am happy to say that on this occasion we have met under different auspices, and I am convinced that those whom I now address, who are the triumphant party—the winners in this great struggle—form part of the great body who are now making the greatest efforts—and efforts which I am happy to tell you have hitherto been eminently suc- cessful-I say, I am sure that the feelings of those Con- servatives whom I now address, as well as the whole body at large, will never allow them to give way to unseemly triuiiil)ii-Nvill never tempt them to trample on a fallen foe (cheers). Many of our opponents are honestly mis- taken—they mean the good of their country as well as we do (cheers). I am satisfied they are wrong, and as long as you give me your support you shall find me at my post opposing their measures (cheers). I have always felt that speeches of this sort, after dinner, could not well be too short, I will, therefore, sit down; but I caiinot have the pleasure and gratification of drinking all your healths, for I have been deprived of drinking wine for the last three years; but I do assure you from the bottom of my heart, that I wish you all the health and happiness that c;) fall to your lot. MR. JONES said: Though in other respects I am certamly not so fortunate as my honorable friend, yet on this occasion ] am more so my health permits me to drink yours in aflowing bumper, and I will drink for my honorable friend and myself too (Cheers and laughter). Now, gentlemen this morning, and also at this board, the Whig candidate at the last election has been alluded to, and I will say that a more honorable opponent than Sir James Williams, I do not know (Cheers). I respect him —Mr. frevor respects him, and every individual in the county of Carmarthen respects him, as a private indivi- dual of most unblemished and untarnished honor (Cheers). W itil these lc^i4ti^s Wiicn he first stood for the county I gave hi.n I ??Y support (Hear), I could and I would to dns cny nave given him mat ￼ .'?'?"L? coincided with mine; but I thmk \us oplt\lon on politics are such as to make it highly dangerous that he should represent this county (Cheers). It is therefore under- stood by all—ou behalf ot Mr. Rice Trevor and myself— that nothing like the least lurking idea of animosity attaches to Sir James Williams: we feel for him every respect which a private individual ought to have, but as a public man we can never support him, as long as he professes his present opinions. A fter a few other obser- vations, the lion, member sat down amidst loud cheers. COL. TREVOR then proposed. "The absent electors of the county of Carmarthen." Drunk with three times three. I > Mr. JONES then gave the proposers and seconders of Col. Trevor and himself. Mr. LLOYD and Mr. DANIEL PRYTIIEKCH returned thanks. The CHAIRMAN then proposed "The health of the member for the united boroughs of Carmarthen and Llanelly—Mr. David Morris." Drunk with three times three. COL. TRCVOR, after passing a high and eloquent eulogiutn on the military prowess and senatorial qualifi- cations of the Duke of Wellington—which we regret we have not room to transcribe—proposed his Grace's health, which was drunk with enthusiasm. Mr. JOHN JONES said: I am about to propose a noble- man of high rank and great connections and property in tins county, ana a neigiioouimg one. and it there is an instance to shew how very dangerous the principles of Her Majesty's Ministers are, I think the conduct of that high and enlightened nobleman will point it out (cheers). I need not tell you that the Earl of Cawdor tor many years supported Whig principle^ and a more upright and conscientious man does not live. He was brought up in Whig principles, and as long as the Ministers did not do anything against the constitution of the country, he gave them his support, but he finds that those who call themselves Whigs, but who arc ruthless Radicals, are bringing forward measures which tend to overthrow the constitution cf the country, and he is now opposed to them (cheers). I have met him in contests for the borough of Carmarthen, but I liever felt any ill-feeling towards him; each tried to support his own principles, and we parted on good terms, Now I am happy tu re- ceive the support of that noble Lord in this county he approves of the votes I have given; he has withdrawn his interest from Her Majesty's Ministers, and'if 1 had been opposed and gone to a poll, I should happily have been supported by the noble lord and all the interest he could give. Mr. Jones proceeded to talk about the moral courage of Lord Cawdor in recanting his former principles and apostatizing from the faith of his fathers. He then went on to eulogize the House of Lords, without whose barrier to the innovations of reform, we should have lost our precious constitution," and become nothing more than a tumultuous republic This was of course warmly cheered. The hon. gentleman concluded by giving "The Earl of Cawdor and the House of Lordc." Mr. REES GORING 1 HOMAS in an elaborate and elo- quent speech, which we are obliged to omit, proposed The health of Sir Robert Peel-the glorious Conservative phalanx of 312-ancl the glorious majority of one." This was drunk in glorious" style. Mr. J. WALTERS PHILLIPS then delivered his recan- tation in the following words. Ten years ago I was one of the most rigid Reformers in this county—but I am changed (cheers), and so are my principles (Joud cheers); and I am become one of the most determined Conserva- tives in the county of Carmarthen (tumultuous applause; kicking, "jumping Jim Crow," &c. &c.). I have not ventured to declare those sentiments until now, but finding that my friends are returned without opposition, I think I am at liberty to do so. Gentlemen, I beg to propose to you the health of Lord Emlyn and the Conservative members of Wales (loud cheers). Col. TREVOR then proposed the health of the Chair- man, who bungled out a few words in reply. [Our Tory friends must get a better chairman on a future occasion. ] Mr. DAVID PCGJI said: I rise to propose a toast, and I re.ret that the office has not fallen into abler hands, but on one account I don't regret my incapacity to do it justice, because I know that nothing which could be said by me will enhance the estimation in which the subjects of it are held by you. I propose the health of Ladv Dynevor and Mrs. Rice Trevor (loud cheers). Those ladies, gentlemen, I will not presume to characterize because you know full well that if I had "a hundred lips all clothed with cloquerice-a hundred tongues all tipped with fire," I could not sufficiently celebrate their praises (cheers). Those ladies I will not presume to panegyrize, because I should be attempting "To paint the lily, or gild the gold refined" (cheers). I will, therefore, content myself with proposing those two ladies whose names are themselves an eulogy -L,t(ly Dynevor and Mrs. Rice Trevor (protracted applause). Col. TREVOR acknowledged the compliment, and gave The Ladies of Carmarthen." Mr. LLOYD proposed the health of the Deputy Sheriff. Mr. LEWIS MORRIS returned thanks. Mr. REES GORING TIIOMAS rose amidst some uproar, the wine having began to produce its natural effects at the lower end ot the tabie. He said. I am quite sure it will not be in vain to appeal to an assembly of Conser- vative gentlemen to keep order (great confusion); and I am sure they will respond most readily to the toast I am about to give. I am going to propose the hedth of gen- tlemen who have a most arduous duty to perform--l mean the reporters f< r the press. Here the tumult be- came so great in consequence of some parties fighting: nt tl,e lower end of the room, that the Chairman vacated the chair, and the company broke up about 8 o'clock. [\Ve have to acknowledge the readiness with which we were supplied with a ticket tor the dinner^ and the attention shewn us at the table. In return we have reported those j spc??hc.. ?hich we could find room for M?j/tm et li- > tend im. ] I We understand that our popular Wesleyan Minister, the Rev. W. Tarr, intends preaching an Assize Sermon on Sunday evening. PRESBYTERIAN COLLEGE, CARMARTHEN.—The an- nual examination at this college took place on the 5th, Grb, and 7th instant; the Revs. D. Davison, A.M., of London, and William Davies, of Froodvale, being the examiners. The first prize was awarded to Mr. Daniel Anthony, and the second to Mr. Simon Evans. Though these gentlemen were the successful candidates for these valuable prizes, Mr. John Hughes, Mr. David Griffiths, Mr. William Jones, and Mr. Thomas Thomas, passed their examinations in a very creditable manner, and received some very valuable books as a testimony of the approbation of the examiners. At the conclusion of the examination, which was one of the severest ever passed in the college, the examiners expressed themselves highly pleased with the marked progress and genera] proficiency of the above-named yonng men, and pronounced the whole as being very satisfactory. On Monday last, an inquest was held on the body of O. Phillips, a pig-drover, of this town, who was found drown- ed in a ditch, leading to the river TOIVY, near the Upper Brick-yard, on the Sunday previous. He was last seen alive near Penymorva, on the road leading to Llandilo, on Monday week, but how or where he fell into the river is not known; neither were there any marks on his person which warranted a suspicion of his heino- nnfairlv rfp:ilr with. The Jury returned a verdict of Found drowned- and before separating they expressed their regret they had not the power of remunerating the person who found the body, and got it to land, nor to allow any payment to the witnesses for their attendance in consequence of which the evidence is frequently so very defective, that the circumstances attending the death cannot be fully elicited. They hope the Town Council will take the matter under their consideration. FROODVALE ACADEMY, NEAR LLANDOVERy,-On the 1st and 2nd instant, the young men of this school were examined in the principles of grammar and science. The preparations of the different classes comprised in Latin, were as follows.—The first three books of Casai--the Buolics, Georgics, and four books of Virgil's Eneid—the whole of Horace, Sallust, Juvenal, and Persius-the first five books of Livy-Agricola and Germany ot Tacitus- Cicero de Senectute and Amicitia. In Greek-Greek Testament, the four Gospels-first book of Herodotos- thirteen books of Homer's Iliad, and two books of the Odyssey—the first four books of Xenophon's Anabisis— first book of Xenophon's Cyrodpædia-portins of Demos- thenes, Thuridides, and Pindar—four Greek Plays, viz., Hciuba, Medea, and Aleestes of Euripides, and the Oedi- pus Tyrannus of Sophocles. In ifathetizatics-firt six books of Euclid-II,) -Lj.,uriitioii-Tti goij oiii c try--Q Liacl ra- tics in Algebra i. id-surveying. In Hebi-eiv-Hebrew and Chaldee Grammars. Also, Geography, Greek and Roman History, Heathen Mythology, the Principles of Astronomy, Mechanics, and other branches of Natural Philosophy. lhose who distinguished themselves in the Latin and Greek classics were Benjamin Davies, of Froodvale and Evan Davies, of Gelly, Lknycrwys. Master Charles Lloyd, of Brunant, and others, read Hebrew with facility, and repeated 'he paradigm of the seven conjugations of Hebrew works with fluency and correctness. LLANELLY.—On Friday last, this town was the scene of loyal independence and holiday, occasioned by the glorious return of the worthy representative for the United Boroughs of Carmarthen and Llanelly. The morning was rather cloudy, and bore a threatening aspect; but as the day advanced (as if the effect of a natural impulse to gladden the approaching festivityJ it became beautifully tine. The excellent band from Carmarthen paraded the streets at an early hour, which, with the firing ot cannon and the merry peals which ever and anon caught the ear, was an announcement of there being something grand" about to take place. At eleven o'clock the whole town seemed, as it were, condensed in one mass by Llanelly House, which was deservedly the great centre of attraction, for it was from thence the worthy Member was to be chaired. About one o'clock, the arrangements having been completed, Mr. Morris stepped into an elaborately designed and tastefully orna- mented chair (prepared for the occasion under the judicious management of Mr. Hughes, agent to W. Cnambeis, Esq.), amidst the deafening ciieers of the .laseiiiuieu Hiu.wjiuuus. VII Ule SllJal tor nloving, the baud struck up the appropriate air of See the con- quering hero comes," and a company of True Ivo- rites, with Messrs. Chambers, G. Webb, and Frederick L. Brown, heading the procession, marched forward. The procession consisted of all the respectable inhabi- tants of the borough, and proceeded through Hall -street, ihemas-street, High-street, Water-street, over the Worn to the Sea-sid?, w here there was every demonstra- tion of pleasure. The shipping was very gay; we par- ticularly noticed the Montrose, of Dundee, whose colours had a most imposing effect. The procession returned through Church-street, Park-street, and having formed into a circle in Llanelly House yard, the worthy member, after returning thanks in a neat and brief speech, retired amidst the most enthusiastic cheering. We are very happy to observe, that the opposite party kept aloof, and looked on at a distance, evidently chagiined at the death blow which we trust has been given to the enemies of the people in these boroughs. The Dinner, according to announcement, took place at the Ship and Castle Hotel, where the worthy representative of the people attended, and presided. There were about 200 tickets issued, and many could not find accommodation in the large room ofthat II utel. The dinner, replete with enry delicacy of the season, did credit to the judgment of Miss Brittan. The wines were excellent. After the removal of the cloth, the following toasts were proposed and responded to with the utmost entnusiasm :—ihe Quccn-Prince Albert—The Duke of Sussex, and the rest of the Royal Fami)y—The Army and Navv-The Bishop of St. David's and the Clergy ot the Diocese—The Dissenting Ministers of the county, &c. Afterwards WiHiam Chambers, Esq., rose, I 'ind the conta.T?v -?-t)??.?. r —' <iUom to give you a to ist, wilicli, 1 believe, you have been long am?.??tmg with impatience: I mean the health of a t!)st)?uishcd ?nde.nan, who has invited us to dine with hm, o? ti?s pcc?ion. David Morris, Esq. (trcmendous f' •0 ca*ilon ]>vul Morris, Esq. (tremendous p\V^U L'! wiueh contu.?d for son? ti.ne)-a man of ?ho; ?ve n.ay wdl be proud of, whose career in Parliament was not only highly honourable to himself, but reflected a co?siJeraute degree of credit upon his constituents (chcer!);?). This is. the second time that he has been returned a member for the United Boroughs of Carmar- then and Llanelly; and I have no doubt that upon anv future occasion, he will again be elected (Loud cries of He shall, he shall, and Morris for ever"). I foel quite con- vinced, gentlemen, that any opposition to my worthy friend will be useless; he has gamed for himself the good opinions even ot his opponents (great cheering) Gen- tlemen, in conclusion, I beg again to propose tne health of our worthy member, with nine times nine, "long may he live-long may he represent the United Boroughs of Carmarthen and Llanelly. (Vociferous applause.) Mr. Chambers then led oft the Kentish fire, in prime spirit — David Morns, Esq., then rose, and spoke nearly as fol- lows :(;eiitlemen- It 1"; now my pleasing duty to pro- pose the health of a gentleman whom you all know-a gentleman who deservedly stands high in your esteem, and whose worthiness I cannot sufficiently express—a gentleman who resides amongst you, and spends his splendid fortune in your town, unlike most gentlemen) who gather their riches and spend them away from the place from whence they sprung: and a gentleman who has done incalculable good tor the benefit of this town. I need 'not say, that I allude to my honourabjc friend William Chambers, Esq. (Great cheeri]?). I shalJ, therefore, without further comment, give \?on the henlrh of William Chambers, Esq. (Immense Vplause) The toast was drunk with every demonstration of joy -Win 4rS' rose, T T" ?'?with tremendous Sapnphlauuse, iH-le M oI bserved- In r?sin? to return you my tnanks, I [('pI qlllte utlable to express my sense of the honour w-ieh you have done me on this occas!on a.?r the very k.nd :md handsome manner in which my name has been introduced to you by my worthy friend on my left. It is to me a source of great satisfaction to find rav tehow-townsmen approve of my conduct, and whose good opinion it will ever be my wish to conciliate (Loud ap- plause). The worthy gentleman concluded a most ardent and lelicitous speech, which press of matter compels us to omit, and sat down amidst the most vehement cheer- ing. The health of William Chambers, Esq., Jun., was then drunk, amidst the most enthusiastic cheering, and with all honours. On his rising to return thanks, he said, that on no former occasion had he felt the ditli- culty which he did at that moment, to give an adequate expression to his feelings, for the handsome manner in which his health had been proposed and received by so numerous and respectable an assemblage of his fellow- townsmen He then bnedy alluded to the up-hill work which the Reformers ol Llanelly had had to contend with, and the happy result which crowned their labours. He should be happy tu eunst in any future campaign in the ranks ot the Llanelly Reformers, and in any character to assist them in achieving successive victories (Applause.) -Tliu meeting was occasionally enlivened by the exer- tionsof three professional gentlemen, in fact, harmony and good feeling pervaded the whole assembly, who departed to their several homes at a late hour, evidently gratified at the pleasurable excitement naturally produced on the occasion.
PEMBROKESHIRE. I II A VERFORDWEST.- We understand that the ordination of the Rev. W. Fletcher, as Pastor of the Church and Congregation at Albany Chapel, on the Green, Haver- fordwest, will take place on Wednesday,the 16th inst. The Rev. Doctor Fletcher, of London; the Rev. J. J. Carruthers, of Liverpool: the Rev. James Rowlands, of Henley-upon-Thame, and other Ministers, are expected to take part in the services, which, we doubt not, will be very interesting. It is now nearly :J0 years since a similar service took place in this town. On Friday last, a tea meeting was held in the Tabernacle Chapel, Haverfordwest, in aid of the London Missionary Society, when a very respectable party of nearly 500 partook of the cup that cheers, but not inebriates." The Rev. C. J. Hyatt, of London, presided on the occasion. Mrs. Johns, the wife of the Missionary of that name, and Raffaravavy, one of the refugees from Madagascar, were also present, and imparted a degree of interest to the meeting which quite delighted every one present. The profits of the tea meeting will realize nearly C20. Ad- dresses suitable to the occasion were delivered by the Hev. C. J. Hyatt, Rev. Daniel Davies, Zion's Hill; Rev. Rev. James (Baptist) John Hitchings, (Weslevan), Rev. James Williams, of Keyston; and the Rev. William Jones, ol liers-cross. To the honour of the ladies belong- ing to the congregation at the Tabernacle, this labour of love was carried on by them in a manner which reflected credit both on their taste as members of society, and economy as Christians. May others imitate their example, and go and do likewise in aid of the noble cause of Christian Missions. HAVERFORDWEST QUARTER SESSIONS were held on Friday, before Thomas Martin, clerk, chairman, VVm. Rees, Esq., Mayor, and Jarues Higgon, Esq. Win Rees, Esq., gave notice that at the next Quarter he would submit to the Court, whether Thos. Davies, the keeper of the Lunatic Asylum, should not be discharged •—yt»m Jenkins was indicted for having at the parish ofljzniaston stolen a gown, the property of Mary Thomas. Guilty Three calendar months' imprisonment at hard labour.— Ann L/ewellin was indicted for having at the parish of Prendergast, stolen a table cloth the property of William Richards. Guilty. A former conviction having been proved, she was sentenced to twelve calendar months' imprisonment and hard lubour, At the Court of ths Commissioner for the Relief uf Insolvent Debtors, held at Haverfordwest, on Saturday last, the following prisoners were examined :—Robert Wilson Roberts, discharged fortliwith.-Willi,,trii lowell, .C., conditionally, on filing a consent of the assignees of creditor No. 17, or on proof of their having notices, otherwise adjourned to next circuit to serve them.—George Davies, entitled, &c., conditionally, if the Commissioner shall he satisfied on having an Inventory of Insolvent's Goods oil his premises at the time of distress, and a valuation of each article verified by the affidavit of a competent person, otherwise adjourned to next circuit.—David Edwards, remanded to amend his special balance sheet, to set forth every transaction, and balance the same every month, and to supply dates to each separate item, &c. LAUNCH OF A FRIGATE AT PEMBROKE.—'The launch of the Cambrian, of 3G guns, which was postponed from the 3rd to the 5th instant, the tides not having flowed sufficiently high for the purpose, took place on the latter day, and although there was an uncertainty as to her going off even then, it is supposed that there were about 2,1.00 persons present, of all grades, to witness a sight at all times interesting and imposing. The former part of the day was fine, hut it was near seven o'clock before the eagerly anticipated event took place, by which time it began to lower, and shortly afterwards it rained pretty smartly. The Haven presented a pleasing spectacle during the evening, from the number of vessels and boats in rapid action, each with its freight of gay and expectant gazers. There was a band of music stationed near the prow of the vessel, which played God save the Queen" as the frigate left her ways. The whole went off admirably the lady of Sir R. B. Phillips gracefully named the vessel previous to her entry into her future element. She glided away in fine style, amidst the enthusiastic cheers of the assembled multitude. The launch of the Cr lIinyccood, 80 guns, is fixed for the 17th of August, which is the Duchess of Kent's birthday. At the! annual fair held at Newport, on the 2Sth and 29th ult., a great quantity of beasts of all desci iptions were sold; horned cattle having-declined in price from 30s. to 40s. per head, since the fairs held the latter end of May and beginning of June. Horses were numerous, and sold well, particularly colts, which fetched good prices. At the pig fair, on the 29th, the grunters sold well. An inquest was held on Monday last, before James Bowen, Esq., Coroner, near Kilgerran, Pembrokeshire, on view of the body of an infant, 18 months old. It ap- peared that the mother, Mary Davies, had brought a bucket of water into the house, and had gone out, and left the little girl in charge of her sister, who was nine years of age, and who also went out, leaving the infant in the house. When she returned she found that the poor little creature had fallen upon her head into the bucket of water, and was drowned. Verdict, "Accidental Death." The Petty Sessions for the Hundied of Kernes were held at the Castle Inn, Newport, on Friday, the 2d iust., before the Rev. John Pugh. clerk, and George Bowen, George Griffiths, and J. W. T. James, Esqrs. There was very Tittle business of interest at these Sessions, with the exception of two persons from the parish of Moelgrove having been committed to Haverfordwest Gaol, for having stolen hay from some land in that parish; the person who had been for some time at large charged with sheep- stealing from Forest, near Kilgerran, was also apprehen- ded on the day of the Sessions, and committed to Gaol to take his trial at the next Assizes. THE PEMBROKE BOROUGHS.—The election has ter- minated; the following is the result of the polling on mdav:— For Sir J Owen For Col. Owen For Capt. Child Pembroke 137 153 33 lenby 68 5 23 Milford.30. 18 Wiston 47 26,. 20 Capt. Child has, however, accomplished a great object, and won a glorious victory he has opened the boroughs. To use the language ot a Tory, he has struck in the wedge, which may not be driven home in his time, but will never again be drawn out. All that Tory ingenuity and malice could devise; all that treachery could effect, and intimidation and coercion accomplish, aided by the mostactive priestly rancour, have been arrayed against the Liberal candidate for these boroughs: but be has declared his determination of again contesting them when another opportunity offers, and there can be no doubt that as the electors are enlightened, they will feel their slavish de- gradation, and, ere long, g throw off the galling yoke. gradationC, hild did not fight for numbers; he knew it was useless in the present state of the registra- tion. The next contest will be far different.—" Sands form the mountain, moments make the year." It must seem a very extraordinary circumstance to all per- sons not. intimately acquainted with the candidates for the borough ot Pembroke, and their supporters, that a SOll and a father, as it would appear, are in opposition to each other: it is, however, in appearance only that they are so, and Col. Owen runs no danger whatever of vio- lating the fourth commandment. Nothing, of course, is known beyond the immediate circle of their friends; but it may be allowed us to guess what is the meaning of this most extraordinary manoeuvre we guess, then, that Sir John Owen has 110 qualification, (and we will say, pre- sently, why we think so) we gutss that both Col. Owen and Sir John's supporters are perfectly cognizant of this fact. We guess that it has been the intention of these gentlemen, that if Sir John Owen fails to produce his qualification, Col. Owen will produce his, for the pur- pose of saving the seat. We guess, however, that these gentlemen have made a sad mistake. W e do not under- stand that Col. Owen has at the hustings protested against the votes given to his father, which he must have done to avail himself of the circumstance, and the election will be declared void, if there should be a petition against it. It is extraordinary that the proposer and seconder of Col. Owen were not better informed of the law on the subject, the former having considerable experience of eiection matters, when he was a burgess of Wells, in Somersetshire, where malicious people accused him of changing sides, and turning an election there: and the latter having been attorney to Sir John Owen at a former election. It Knowledge is power." The following is a list ot the judgments entered up against Sir John Owen, which any body may search for and see, by paying a -hillitig:- Cocks and Biddulph, £:.Wöü; H. Phelp, ,€3310; Stephenson and Kenderley, £ 140,003; Hugh Owen, £ 70,003 Davies, £ 2021; Hum- phreys, £G0:23 j making the enormous sum of JC221,016, independent of the simple contract debts.— After the close of the poll, Colonel Owen and Captain Child addressed the electors. The latter saicl :-Gentlemen-I regret that it has not fallen to the lot of some more in- fluential and competent person titan myself, to attempt to rescue your ancient and respectable Boroughs from the degradation of being let, set, and assigned over, just as it suited the caprice, or convenience, of the House of Oriel- ton. Difficult, gentlemen, as it would be at all times, to address so large an assembly, 1 feel myself particularly embarrased when I look around and see the collected wis- dom of the whole hundred of Castlemartin, and the council of the Borough, arrayed against me; why, gentlemen, I feel as if I were sinking within myself at my presump- tion. But, gentlemen, when I recall to mind the object of my appearing here, I feel as if raised in a tower of strength. I trust alone in the justice ot my cause, and the purity of my intention. I stand not here as the fawning political puppet of a great man, but as a gentle- man of the county of Pembroke, with the proud feeling of being the champion and supporter of the poor man's rights—a character not assumed, as the play bills say, for the day only, but one which has tried a rehearsal for upwards of a quarter of a century. (Loud cheering.) Gentlemen, It gives me great pleasure to state, that the result of this contest far, very far, exceeds my most san- guine expectations. I appear before you with more con- fidence this day than I did yesterday; that confidence i- strengthened by the fact of my having polled many more than I anticipated, not having canvassed until the Writ had arrived. Gentlemen, I have redeemed my pledge, and I once more sacredly pledge myself, with the b ?,essing of God, again to appear on these hustings, whenever an opportunity may again occur. Gentlemen, I thank you for your attentioll.-COL. OWEN then addressed the free- men, and turning to Cant. Child, stid, The Hon. Can- didate must be a glutton, indeed, it he is not satisfied with the beating he has got. I ask him, upon what ground he founds his confidence in appearing here again ?" This was an unhappy question, which in mercy Mr. Child did not answer.—The total number of Electors on the Regis- ter is 1148, not one half of whom voted.—We have heard of some strange doings on the polling day at Milford; cajolery, intimidation, and undue influence were exercised 011 behalf of Toryism and Sir John Owen. Certain sur- geons, calling themselves gentlemen, another individual in the pay of her Majesty, and some other BODY, made themselves very active on the occasion. Not content with trying the art of persuasion, the old Tory practice of threatening was very freely resorted to: one elector, who for many years has been well known in Milford as an avowed Liberal, was obliged to vote for Sir John Owen, or else no more Jons. We will not name parties, for they are well known in Milford. A certain Doctor, it eems told an-elector that if he did not vote for Sir John Owen he would send liini in a bill for ten pounds for professional attendance. Such conduct is very despicable, and should be publicly reprobated. In consequence of the undue influence practised byTory Innkeepers, Parsons, Doctors, young Master Builders, and a set of lazy idlers, bearing the name ot gentlemen, the Liberal electors were, many of them, afraid to Tote; and others we have heard of, were almost dragged by gentlemen to the polling-booth. PEMBROKESHIRE ELECTION.—Tuesday last, being the day fixed for the nomination of a Knight of the Shire to serve in the ensuing Parliament, soon ,after ten o'clock in the forenoon, Lord Emlvn, attended by a numerous body of friends, assembled at the Shire-Hall. Thomas Lloyd, Esq. of Bron.vydd, proposed, and George Bowen, Esq., of Llwyu- gwair. seconded the nomination of Lord Emlyn. We have received full reports of their speeches, but too late for in- sertion. Mr. Lloyd is a renegade, and tried to damage his old friends by gross misstatements. The Sheriff then en- quired if there was any other person to be proposed. After the lapse oftive minutes he declared John Frederick Vaughan Campbell, commonly called Lord Emlyn, to be elected the Knight of the Shire to represent it in Parliament. His Lordship then rose and said—When I canvassed the county last week and the previous one, I felt confident that I should be returned your member. I offer you my thanks for the high honour you have done me. I shall go to Par- liament determined to oppose any measure that may be injurious to the farming interest. I am at the same time couvinced that commerce and agriculture are so inti- mately connected, that both must be protected, and that they must rise or fall together. I am a friend to civil and religious liberty, at the same that I avow myseif a sup, porter of Church and State. My friend, Mr. Lloyd, has tru:y said that I am young in years, but hope that I sb.a1 soon have more experience, which will enable me to become an useful member of society. I trust that by devotipg all my time and talents to the good of the county, that I shall, when I next meet you, as a candidate, be enabled to yender a good account of my general conduct (loud cheers). Lord Emlyn moved, and W. H. Scourfield, Esq. seconded a vote of thanks to George Roch, Esq., High Sheriff, for his im- partial conduct in the chair, which was briery acknowledged; after which the young lord was girt with the sword as Knight of the Shire, ar.d having rpounted horse rode round the principal streets of the town preceded by a number of gentlemen two and two, and followed by a cavalcade of horsemen, six in number. His Lordship entertained his friends and supporters with a dinner at the Mariners' Inn, when a sumptuous entertainment was provided by Mrs. Winsor, whieh gave unbounded satisfaction to all present. About 95 sat down; W. H. Scourfield, Esq. presided, and John Adams, Esq., of Holyland, officiated as vice. After the usual toasts had been proposed and drunk in flowing bumpers, the party broke up about ten o'clock, highly pleased with the entertainment of the evening,

When they had proceeded about four miles, some part of the harnegs got loose, and the horse dashed citat a furious rate. Mr. Jones, being so alarmed that he lost all presence of mind, jumped out of the carriage, and fell with so much violence that both his legs were broken-the left a little above the anhie, the bones protruding through the. flesh-and the right a little below the knee. He was wounded also on his neck. He is now lying in a very pre- carious state in a public house near the spot where the accident took place. Mr. Williams remained in the phaeton, until it was upset about a quarter of a mile of the place where Mr. Jones lay, and escaped with a slight wound on one of his legs.
