PEMBROKE BOROUGHS ELECTION.—This election took place on Saturday last. The proceedings were very tame in consequence of Capt. Child having withdrawn for reasons stated in his address. After the officer of the court had read the Act of Parliament, &c., the Mayor called on the electors to nominate candidates when after a pause, Wm. Richards, Esq., of Tenby, rose and said, Brother Electors,—I beg to propose Sir John Owen, Bart., as a fit and proper person to repre- sent these Boroughs in Parliament. His political career of 38 years is before you and his votes in Parliament have I think given great satisfaction. Mr. Jos. W. Paynter, surgeon, Pembroke, said, I beg to second the proposition of my friend Mr. Richards, and hope if Sir John Owen is returned again, he will go unshackled by pledges to Parliament and vote on all occasions according to his own judgment. No other candidate having been proposed, the Mayor declared Sir John Owen, Bart., duly elected. About sixty or seventy persons (including several well-dressed females) were in the body of the hall; but with the exception of the proposers, not a single individual of the slightest political influence or politico, importance attended the meeting, and the whole proceeu ;,r ii only occupied twenty minutes. THE HARVEST.—Several farmers in the neighbour- hood of Fishguard have commenced cutting barley. The crops are very abundant and of a good quality. SOUTH WALES RAILWAY.-The landowners and oc- cupiers of land between Cross Inn and Priskelly, near Fishguard, have had twenty-one days' notice to quit, for the purpose of commencing the works on that part of the line.
