CARDIGANSHIRE BOROUGH ELECTION. I RETURN OF MR. PRYSE PRYSE, THE LIBERAL CANDIDATE. This election, after a contest of unprecedented severity :-?d unparalleled excitement, terminated on Saturday h8ht by a majority in favour of Mr. Pryse Pryse, over Ilia Opponent, Mr. J. S. Harford, by a majority of 7. '\) From the onset, it was believed that the contest would b e &a extraordinarily severe one, & as the results of the ? '? canvasses became known to the several Com- ￼ d oiittees ?"* respective Candidates, equal confi dence • both Partic and led each to anticipate «r kQth parties and led each to anticipate 16 8uccess. Mr. Pryse's fight was certainly an tiPn -nirilnl one, since rnnn?u-t unexpected circumstances ¡ ? <??pi,ed to depress his cause, such as the reten- ")" of Mr. Lloyd Hall at Newcastle Emlyn, for Mr. ?liarford I the secession of Mr. Beynon, of Adpar, from JJe position occupied bv that ?endeman with regard to I*lr* Pryse's late father; the loss of the support of Col. ^p owell, the Lord Lieutenant of the County, and also 1 of Lord Lisburneall these circumstances com- ?""Pd, rendered Mr. Pryse's chances of success far from ??' ?'"? devolved upon his friends the necessity of ?dmunal exertion and activity. Right nobly did each anù 11 '"? all of them ?cq?it themselves. All that energy and jtermination could achieve was in every Borough "ccmnplished, and Mr. Pryse was perfectly satisfied at ￼ end of his canvassing tour, that a small majority "ould reward his I'Œ,HtS. 1 Oil the other hand Mr. Harford's agents and friends fd. him to believe that he would obtain a DECISIVE ?"rity over his opponent." Backed by the whole 'trength of the Tivy Side gentry, no despicable or unin- Suentiftl opponents, and having the support of Dr -?'ewpHyn? ?t Lampeter. Col. Powell, and Lord Lisburne, &t Aberysiwith, with Mr. Beynon and Mr. Lloyd Hall, ? Adpar. the talented author of The Life of Bishop —f'S?ss," had a legitimate right to be sanguine of "tceesa. The triumph of Mr. Pryse over such foemen Worthy of his steel, is therefore the more remarkable and Otiofaetory. 'Ve need scarcely say that the excitement in all the OUr Boroughs was intense, and we deem it a most for- tunate circumstance that the Bribery and Treating Act Wfts in operation as a preventive to the donation of 8tlmlllating drinks to the excited and tumultuous Populace, otherwise probably in the heat of the contest, dangerous collisions would havf taken place. Every precaution was taken by Mr. W. Phillips, the Mayor of Cardigan, to prevent riotous proceedings, for although the military were necessarily ordered off to Newport, the services of a great number of special con- stables were ensured in the event of being required. THE NOMINATION. I Rarely has itbeen our lot to witness such a scene of over- whelming excitement and uproar as prevailed on Friday last in the Shire Hall, at Cardigan. About 11 o'clock the respective candidates entered the Hall, accompanied by their friends and partizans. Mr. Harford looked cheerful and apparently confident of success whilst Mr. Pryse looked no less "winnin." The former gentle- man's friends occupied the right side of the Hall, and comprised ;-D. A. S. Davies, Esq., M.P., W. A. Lewis, Esq., Clynfiew, D. Davies, Esq., Bridge Street, Cardi- gan, T. D. Lloyd, Esq., Bronwydrl, Captain Prichard, Tyllwyd, Capt. J. R. L. Lloyd, Dolhaidd, J. Beynon, Esq., Adpar, Dr. Jonps, Llar.cych, J. Griffiths. Pant- flwyn, R. G. Thomas, Llwysnewydd, J. Colby, W. O. Brigstocke, Blaenpant, James Bowen, Troedyraur, J. Griffiths, Berllan, 0 Owen, Cwmgloyne, E. C. Lloyd Hall, Adpar, J. Bowen, Plasybridell, R. Lascelles, Noy- ftddurthin, Esqrs.,&c.&c. Mr. Pryse occupied the left of the Mayor, and was accompanied by Thomas Lloyd, Esquire, Coedmore, T. C. Morgan, Esq., Aberystwith, T- Davies, Esq., Cardigan, &c &c. The Mayor, W. Phillips, Esquire, having taken the c b air, Mr. Morgan, the Under-sheriff, proceeded to lead the documents which are customarily repeatel on such occasions, but owing to the turbulence of tha audiiory but little of these formalities was audible. The Mayor then said Any elector desirous of pro- posing a candidate for the representation of the Cardi- gati Boroughs in the present parliament is requested to ZIO'llil,ate him forth%vitti. W. H. Lewis, Esq Cl?nfiew, rose and was received 'th loud applause mingled with some disapprobation f oud applause minU'led with som<! lsapprobatlOll '?Otthe opposing party.

(Tre- ??"Us uproar,) There were two other questions ery much discussed since the last Session of Parlia- lt"Ilts but I am very happy to find that one of them is *"t eluded lo in the speech from the throne, upon the ?'ening of the present Session-I allude to the endow- 'hnt of the Roman Catholic or Popish Clergy. (Loud ?cerin?.) I only hope that. the Prime Minister, hav- "19 been awakened to a sense of the dan?o-of intro- ??eing any measures of the kind, has seen fit to with- ,raw it, and will n"t again bring it forward. (Cheers.) ?here if:, however, another question which is of ?i'al ?'?'portance to the welfare of the county at large—I *?"*? the repeal of the Navigation Laws. (Tremendous 'T'roar.) This is a measure most materiaUy affecting 'he Borou?h of Cardigan. (Hear), and also that of Aberystwith. (" Hear, hear" from Mr. Pryse.) Our ￼ hu long been the boast of this country, and Eng- ""d has not been inaptly styled the mistress of the Her wooden walls have invariably been her bul- warks, and, as the poet has properly described- Britannia needs no bastion-, No tower along the steep, Her march is on the mountain wave Her home is on the deep." (Treniendous cheering and uproar.) Let but the mea- Oure for the Repeal of the Navigation Laws be carried, and Briton's proud flag will be seldom met upon that tl.,arch, while she herself will be driven from that home 1 he deep which it was her pride to boast that foreign Rations were able to esipel her from, but which will Us been lakn from her by the adoption of the wild theories of domestic foes. (Cheers.) But gent lfmrn, I hope that better times will arise, and that the people of England will arouse from their lethargy and can upon their representatives to oppose the projected R?pea! of a measure so important to British interests, and under the blessing of that Providence which has ever watched the welfare of this country, the vessel of the State will ride over the storms of faction, and when safely in harbour will again become the fear and envy of siirrouniing nations. (Cheers.) Knowing that Mr. Harford's opinions upon these several subjects are in consonance with my own, I have much pleasure in proposing him as your representative. (Tremendous uproar. ) David Davies, Esq., of Castle Green, next presented himself to the electors, but a considerable period elapsed before he could make himself audible in consequence of the tumult that was prevalent. Eventually lie said Ladies—(Loud laughter)—gentlemen, and brother elec- tors. I feel infinite pleasure in seconding the pro- posal that Mr. Harford should becoTie the representa- tive of these B troughs. (Cheers) Mr. Harford is well known to ui nil as a supporter of the Navigation Laws as they af presr-nt s!ai:d, and therefore he is a staunch friend to the s iil.irs. (L)ud cheers.) In fact I may say that it we eleon Mr. Harford, all of us, from the squire in hi" mansion to the poor fisherman in his humble cot, will a fit man to represent us and to promote our mateiial interest. (Cheers.) And this he will do, not in thn irv, hut in practice and execution. (Hear.) He is a gentleman also well acquainted with business, and no person who commences the work of attempting to promote our interests, can ever hope to succeed or to finish it well without properly understanding business and being of thorough business habits. (Hear.) It is a man of business that we wish to have. (Hear.) With his penetration of speech—(Loud laughter, in which the speaker himself joined)—with his power of speech and penetration of mind, he will be enabled to confer great benefits upon the constituency. (Hear and cheers.) By electing Mr. Harford, we shall elect a member who is extensively connected with both Houses of Parliament—both Lords and Commons. (Hear, hear.) I shall sit down, heartily seconding the nomination of so a gentleman. (Liud applause.) Thomas Lloyd, Esq Coedmore, was received with tremendous shouts of applause, and simply said :—I beg to propose my friend, Mr. Pryse Pryse, of Go- gerddan, as a fit and proper person to represent the Cardigan Borough s in Parliament, and in doing so, it is not my intention to trouble you with a tedious speech. (Hear.) T. O. Morgan, Esq., of Aberystwith, seconded Mr. Pryse's nomination, and remarked that as he came from the neighbourhood in which Mr. Pryse resided, he had ample opportunities of becoming acquainted with the high character he maintained in that locality. (Hear.) His sentiments were most liberal, and there could be no doubt he would make a most excellent I Member of Parliament if the constituency returned him. With regard to what had been said by Mr. Lewis respecting the Navigation Laws, he hardly thought it fair to extract a passage from the Queen s Speech, and make it the text for a political attack. It was haroly respectful to Her Majesty herself to do so. (Lauhter.) As far as regarded the Repeal of the Corn Laws he would say that that experiment had not had a fair trial. (Hear, hear, and uproar.) He had great pleasure in seconding Mr. Pryse's nomination. (Cheers.) Mr. Harford next presented himself to the vast assemblage, and a tumult arose which lasted for nearly five minutes, despite the frequent attempts of the Mayor and the Under Sheriff to put a period to the dis- turbance. There were frequent crles of 11 Welsh," "True Blue," &c., &c., and eventually the Mayor de- clared that if the uproar continued he would order the constables to clear the Court, whereupon Mr. Pryse patted his worship on the back, and promptly ejacu- lated "You can't do it." At length Mr. Harford succeeded in making himself heard and said-Gentlemen, after all, Englishmen and Welshmen form one great nation, and on these oc- casions the universally adopted rule is fair play to both sides. (Renewed disturbance.) I can with all sin- cerity say that it is my ardent desire to secure a patient hearine for my honourable opponent, quite as much as I ask you to give it to myself. (Cheers.) All I ask for again is fair play. (Cheers.) It has gratified me much that in my mover and seconder, I have had the honour to find two entlempn, the one truly endeared to all who know him for his many good qualities both of head and heart, and the other at the head of the commercial and shipping interests of Cardigan, and therefore naturally well qualified to judge of the kind of representative who can best protect those interests. (Cheers.) I thank the numerous and influential body of gentlemen who have honoured me vvitn tneir stippure, and also with their presence this day, which convinces me that they coincide with the same opinions that I advocate. No less do I honour alld value the support of that numerous and highly respectable body of farmers who have promised to aid me, as well as the tradesmen, the opertives, the merchants and sailors connected with these boroughs. (Hear, hear), those who by their industry and skill have found the life blood of that enterprise and energy that has created the vast manu- facturing and commercial fabric which has raised Great Britain to such an unrivalled eminence among the various nations of the world. (Cheers.) Gentlemen, my principles are Conservative—(Cheers and uproar), and my great object through life, whether in or out of Parliament, has ever been and still will be to maintain inviolate the glorious fabric of our Protestant Constitu- tion. (Loud Cheers.) Whenever any practical abuse can be pointed out, I will most willingly lend my aid with reverent and tender hands to remove and eradicate it, but the fundamental principles of the Constitution I will uphold and adhere to. (Cheers.) I hate despotism in all its forms, and I earnestly wish that a few if not all of the continental nations could share in the blessings of our Constitutional Government, but constitutions cannot be raised in a day by the breath of popular caprice. How different therefore is our own Constitution from those ephemeral constitutions which in a neighbouring country have successively arisen, and only to perish amidst the most revolting scenes of anarchy, con fusion, and blood (Cheers.) The British Constitution is a g lorious birthright transmitted to us by our glorious ancestors, framed and cemented by their wisdom, and consecrated by their blood. (Loud cheers.) Under it, the inhabitants of this country have enjoyed a larger share of true national liberty, security, and happiness, than has fallen to the. lot of any other nation, ancient or modern. (Cheers.) The British Constitution is fixed upon the basis of Christianity, and if our li- berties were fixed upon any other foundation, depend LL it thev would not be worth five year's purchase in times like tlillc.

(Cheers) The points of di?reneebet?en us .re ery ?inor compared with those cardinal points upon which we all agree. I therefore honour and respect all good men and Christians of viiatever deno. mination they may happen to be, and wnerever see works of faith and labours of love, I invariably wish them good speed in the name of the same Lord whose glory I also am anxious to promote, and I am deeply astonished at what has been said of me in relation to the Dissenters. Could you believe it possible that at the last election, I lost the vote of a man who had promised to support tne, because his wife, who was a worthy weU meaning woman, had ?ic_ fu?sed to allow him to record his franchise on my behalf because she had been told that if I got into Par- liatnent I should immedietely do my best to pull down all the Dissenting Chapels. (Laughter.) When I saw this woman during my present canvass, the same absurd rumour had been raised, and what was my reply to her when she urged this objection agains me-" Be assured, my good woman, that I n-otild as sr)oii pull down m. own house about my ears as touch a single stone of your Dissenting Chapels. (Cheers) And gentlemen, if by vour votes 1 should be placcd in the honourable position of your representative sho ild ever feel it a sacred duty to watch over and guard the pd- vileges of Dissenters as well as those of member of mr own C'lurcii. (Hear.) I tl)itik I have nov dispo,,cd of that part of t'ne acca-,atiozi avainst Tnc', and I trust that in future no h-mest man will venture to say that I am either intolerant or bigoted towards Dissen tel's. (Hpar.) If I rightly understand and interpret the spirit of the times and can duly foretel coming even s by t!icir menacing forecast shadows, I should sav ''h? ?\,? about approaching a period when we s?H a ■ men as well as Dissenters, continue together and lar aside and forget as much as possible our mutual ani- mositií's and petty prejudices, while we 1 ,Ig:tizist a far greater enemy, the spirit oflnfi,teiitv & Cliarti,ni- against that implacable, restless, ferocious and destructive spirit which has latterly traversed the whole o 'ur0tl and is constantly aiming t.o o..v.eorrttlnirnon"v the landmarks of order, property, region, and equity, and striving perpetuity to set u? a spirit of Democracy a.>e ) called Liberty. (Clic?,i-, ) Y???i beeli no doubt wiH he to!d ovr and otfr aEa:n—that as I am not a Welshmam I am ?tn?t to re?esent aWels.i con.->U tueney. (Cheers.) I will not meet this charge by saving, as I might truly do, that my ancestors had Welsh blood in their veins. I will nnt rest myanswer to that ob- jection upon any such plea. Mv answer i. that I appear amongst you in obedience to requisitions from Cardigan and Aberyst'.vith, signed by most numerous and influential electors, conveyed in terms far too flat- tering to m' vself", and also in obedience to parnpft per- j sonal calls ftom the other Boroughs, 3nd 1 can trulv j add that in coming forward I am animated by a sincere desire and intention to exert myself in any way in my power for the good of the Boroughs, and of their consti- tuency of all degrees and denominations. (Cheers.) Having thus briefly alluded to this subject, I may also be permitted to add that we in England reason in a very different way on this subject, and provided we are well satisfied as to the zeal and ability of the candidate, we are not over anxious in enquiring whether he is an Englishman, Scotchman, an Irishman, or a Welshman, or whether he was born north or south of the Tweed, or east or west of the Severn. (Hear.) I have been alsa charged with being an absentee. (Hear.) To this charge I merely remark that I most heartily wish that every owner of an estate in Cardiganshire and I may here observe that I do not allude to my honourable I opponent as (the attachment of the tenantry of the house of Gogerddan is proverbial) blessed with a tenantry equally attached to their landlord, and equally contented and happy as my own are. (Cheers.) Gen- tlemen—there is one topic of local interest to which I purpose briefly alluding. We are all aware that on this iron bound coast, numerous frightful shipwrecks are constantly occurring in the locality. (Hear.) I was much shocked on coming amongst you a short time since, at hearing of a recent lamentable shipwreck close to Cardigan Bay, accompanied with much loss of life, and I was likewise filled with much admiration when I heard of the heroic manner in which some of your hardy Welsh mariners headed by Capt. Geo. Bowen, made some desperate attempts to save their suffering fellow creatures who were still clinging to the masts, from the horrors of a watery grave. (Loud cheers.) My reason for touching upon this topic is to suggest whether it will not be possible to induce the Government to have a Harbour of Refuge constructed for these coasts. (Loud applause.) This is a plan that has been much talked of, but no definite result has as yet ensued. Why should the subject be suffered to drop, Surely Government would aid the project, and will not the merchants of Liverpool and at Lloyd's, willingly lend a cheerful help for so important a proposition. (Cheers.) Free Trade is a topic that has been touched upon. I regard that. in the light of a great experiment now on its trial before the ordeal of public opinion. (Cheering from the Liberals.) I hope its results may be as beneficial as its most sanguine supporters could wish. I am very far from pledging myself to a general opposition to the free trade system (hear) but I greatly. fear that unless the sacrifices we are making, are met by foreign Governments on terms of reciprocity (hear), the result will be highly unfavourable to Great Britain, and extremely prejudicial to native industry. (Loud cheers.) I observe that Her Majesty in the speech from the throne states that the abrogation or modification of the Navigation Laws is to be brought forward in the present Session of Parliament and with great deference to the gentleman who seconded my honourable opponent, I would remark that we are not speaking disrespectfully of Her Majesty by mentioning the topic in the. speech from the throne. God forbid that I or any of my friends should hint a disrespect of Her Majesty, but we are merely calling in question the policy of Her ministers. To the general princ:ple of those laws I am friendly, not so much on abstract principles, as from being im- impressed with the belief that any radical changes in them would be highly injurious to the British ship- building interest, as well as detrimental, as far as I can see to the mariners who so gloriously man the wooden walls of old Albion, who have made her name respected in every quarter of the world. (Cheers.) Gentlemen, I am not fond of offering pledges, but as I have already stated in one of my addresses, in consequence of ques- tions which have been put to me; and I here repeat it, that as respects any endowment of the Roman Catholic Church by our Protestant Government, I am conscientiously opposed to any such measure. And now, gentlemen, I am not aware that there is any other topic upon which I should touch, but I cannot terminate my address without seeing that in contests like these there mnst unavoidably exist great excitement, and par- ties are apt to say many harsh and unchaiitable things of each other, as well as to misconstrue motives, I cannot but express my confidence that any angry or hostile feelings which may have been provoked, wil., when the contest which has given rise to them has passed away, in like manner subside and be tranquillized. (Hear.) Then when the excitement of the moment has become evanescent, and we recal in our hearts the hard sayings that have passed, we shall most probably regret them in private if we have no public opportunity of saying so. For myself I can truly say that from the beginning to the end of my canvass, I have not exchanged a single unkind word or harsh expression with any one elector. If any one has refused me his vote, I have invariably wished him well, and parted good friends. (Cheers.) I should be ashamed of myself as a man and a Christian if I indulged in acrimonious feelings towards any man for the deliberate exercise of his right of judgment, (Cheer.) And I am sure my honourable opponent shares those feelings with me, and I sincerely wish him well. [Mr. Pryse here started up and warmly shook Mr. Harford by the hand, at the same time jocularly exclaiming Do you wish me suc- cess ?") Roars of laughter followed this incident, and Mr. Harford resumed—My honourable friend asks me if I wish him success. I wish him success in his kennel, in his farm. and his farming, in his family, in everything but in this contest. (Hear and a laugh.) Wo are told to love our neighbours as ourselves, but we are not told to love them better than ourselves, therefore I certainly do wish myself success in this election. (Loud laughter and cheers.) Mr. Pryse then rose to address the electors and was received with rapturous 8. prolonged shouts of applause. He said, Brother electors, I am not going to make a long speech to you, but there are a few subjects upon which we will with your permission have a little talk together. My honourable friend wishes that his neigh- bour should have the same success as himself, but not more, and therefore according to this calculation we must both win. This you know is an impossibility (Laughter.) Now a great deal has been said about my first address to you. I mentioned then that you knew my political principles, and I hear repeat it. You do know them well enough. You had a model in the person of my dear father for thirty-four years, and the principles which imbued his mind have been carefully inculcated on the son. (Loud cheers). You know that I am a Reformer, and that as long as abuses exist, I shall continue to be so. (Cheers.) I shall also advocate Retrenchment as far as is consistent with the public welfare. (Hear.) I assert that we need a speedy reform in the Army and Navy. I consider it one ot' the greatest abuses in the land that old and able soldiers should be passed over by the pro- motion of the scions of the aristocracy, and left at sixty or seventy years old lieutenants when they ought to be admirals or generals. (Loud cheering.) That is one thing that I think requires reformation. But I do not want to cut down everything. That would never do. (Hear.) Now let us look what has been said by my opponents. The proposer of my honourable friend has told you a great deal about the British Constitution —a Constitution that I intensely revere and adore, but Heaven save me from such friends to the Constitution as my opponents would show themselves. (Hear and laughter.) They term themselves Conservatives, but I call tbem Destructives. (Loud laughter and cheers.) I call them careless gardeners who dig up the roots of the tree and suffer the productive portions of it to go to ruin and decay. (Loud cheers.) Men who profess the greatest veneration and respect for our ancient Consti- tution, and yet unwittingly undermine its glorious fabric and will continue to do so unless they meet with wiser men, who will put a stop to their per- nicious practices. (Cheers and ironical cheers from dr. Harford's friends.) Look here my boys What is the foundation of the British Constitution that has been so much talked about ? Is it not Liberty ? And n'hat is the highest ornament of Liberty and the British Con- stitution, but freedom of election; and in how many cases during mv recent canvass have I been told We won1d vote for .ou with all our hearts Mr Pryse bach, but our !and)ord. will n.t let us." (Tr?endou. c?heer- ing.) We had a great deal of talk about the Naviga- tion Laws. Now let us take the buck by the horns:. (Lauhter.) My honourable friend Mr. Lewis—with whom I have had many and many a capital ride across country, and hope to have many more-says that the repeal of this measure will be the ruin of the coun- try. Will he allow me to asli hirii-(turiiin,!z to Mr. Lewis)—what are the Navigation Laws and what is the Government measure respecting them ? (Mr. Lewis maintained a profound silence amidst the ringmar shouts of laughter from the whole assembly at the fix" into which Mr. Pryse had so cleve-cly put him.) There you see he has been talking about a subject that he does not understand. But I vvill assert that there is not a greater friend to the shipping interest in this country than I am. (Cheers) As regards the endowment of the Roman Catholic Clergy, what is the use of talking of a measure that will never be brought forward. That is all humbug, then. (Loud laughter ancl cheers.) But if it ever should be brought forward, I tell y. at once that I am opposed to it. (Tremendous cheering.) If you want to send a man to Parliament to work for your interest, send me and I will work like a TICK. (This naive expression called forth a heat-ti, burst of laughter.) Mr. Harford has come at this election :n a new oharacter he is now a regular Radical, and a complete free trader. (Laughter.) Mr. Harford:—In what have I stated that I am a I free-trader. Mr. Pryse Y ou state that, you will not oppose free- trade except that yon discover that it injures British interests. (Cheers.) Now, we have heard a great deal about blood, and I should not wonder if the streets were running with it when we leave this llan. I won- der how the rivy looks. (Laughter.) All this con- versation about blood and confusion in foreign countries only convinces me the more, that what has saved Eng- land from similar anarchy and confusion is the pro- gressive Liberty which has advanced with our advancing years, while on the continent despotism has prevailed for y°ars, and that has created the revolution, not the people. (Cheers.) The gradual concession of impor- tant Reforms to the nation lias saved England. Look a,t two countries nearly side by side—England and Belgium. Surrounded as they are by nations plll'l,<1 In anarchy and confusion they alone are calmly digniiied and exempt from the dieadful penalties of popular revolutions.

The remembrance of joy Of affection above you can never destroy, You may break, you may shatter, the vase if you will, But the scent of the roses will cling to it still." Mr. Pryse resumed his seat amidst the most enthusiastic plaudits. Mr. Harford said that he wished to add one word by way of explanation. His honourable opponent had said very good humouredly (and he did not complain of it) that he (Mr. H.) had appeared in the new character or a Free Trader. Now lie begged to repeat, in order that there might be no misunderstanding about it, that he regarded "free trade in the light of a great experiment which was now before the ordeal of public opinion. He sincerely wished it well, but unless other countries es- tablished a system of reciprocity, he feared the conse- quences would be very injurious to the protection of British industry. (Cheers.) Mr. J. Smith rose for the purpose of .asking Mr. Pryse some questions, but it being understood that he appeared as a retained agent of Mr. Harford's, and not merely as an elector, Mr. Pryse, acting on the advice of Mr. T. O. Morgan, declined replying to his queries. The Mayor then called for a show of hands, and de- clared that the choice of the electors had fallen upon Mr. Pryse. Mr. Lewis, of Clynfiew, demanded a poll upon behalf of Mr. Harford, and the Mayor fixed its commencement for 8 o'clock the following morning. The thanks of the meeting were voted to the Mayor for his ability in the chair upon the proposition of Mr. Harford, seconded by Mr. Pryse, and the meeting then dispersed. THE ELECTION. As early as 8 o'clock on Saturday morning the polling commenced at Cardigan, Mr. Harford's supporters put- ting forth their whole strength, and before 11 o'clock securing a majority of 86, which was shortly af terwards increased to 94 but at the close of the poll the total number polled in Cardigan for each candidate was as follows :-Nir Harford, 120; Mr. Pryse, 23, leaving a majority for Mr. Harford of 92. The greatest anxiety now prevailed to learn the result of the poll at each of the other Boroughs, and about half-past 5 o'clock, Capt. Pryse, and Mr. Geo. Thomas j arrived with the Adpar poll-books, which showed the tdmbers to be :—For Mr. Harford, 22 for Mr. Pryse, 40, leaving a majority for Mr. Pryse of 18. Upon the arrival of the Aberystwith poll-books which were conveyed to Cardigan by Mr. Miller (the Mayor) in a carriage and four to prevent the possibility of mistake it was ascertained that Mr. Pryse must have won the election by a small majority, for the num- bers were, Mr. Harford, 71 Mr. Pryse, 180. It was now clear that Mr. Harford's majority in Lampeter could not be sufficient to defeat Mr. Pryse, and loud and long were the cheers that rung through the streets upon this announcement. Eventually the Lampeter poll-books arrived, the numbers being—Mr. Harford, 78 Mr. Pryse, 49. Ma- jority for Mr. Harford. 29 Leaving a majority of 6 upon the gross poll for Mr. Pryse.

NEWCASTLE-K\lL YN. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] The election is over-biit so hot has been the contest, at this plucky" little place, that men's bosoms still heave with the effects of the past excitement. On the victorious side there is some very natural exultation, for the electors have nobly asserted their independence in the face of no ordinary power. There has been no treachery, no flinching, every man of the party has done his duty, they have come off more than conquerors, and they are proud of it. Such feelings are not only natural, but they are manly and creditable, they how- ever will soon subside the storm has passed, old ocean heaves and swells for a while, but will soon be calm and beautifully blue as before On the defeated side here there is, doutless, much chagrin and disappoint- ment it cannot weil be otherwise when the fact is, that it was the stauchness of the electors, and the zeal and activity and skilful management of Mr. Pryse's sup- porters at this place, that actually turned the scale of the general election in his favor. We had it in print that Mr. Harford's committee calculated upon a ma- jority of 5 an this borough, and that ibey would be very much disappointed if they did not get it," and we now have it officially .'recorded, that in so small a constituency they miscalculated to the extent of 23, the poll here being for Pryse 40, for Harford 22, majority for Pryse 18 "Elille ilia lachrynuB." We must make allowances if the party feel sore from the effects of so complete a drubbing. But as men of true spirit, they will bear their defeat with good hu- mour. There are reports of notices to quit, of with- drawing custom from tradesmen, and of discharging mechanics and workmen but we cannot believe such rumours, they are disparaging to those they point at, and they must be calumnious. No b'ave man, after being thrashed can entertain any sulky spirit of re- velige he may train himself for jobtlier honourable contest, but he will do so in a mmJfí spirit, and will in the mean time cordially shake his victor by the hand. The man who acts otherwise is a craVen-a COlvard- who, after striking a man who returns the hlowand happens to heat him, runs to the Petty Se-sions and takes the law" of his opponent. Phsaw Our Welsh gentry have better blood in their veins than thus to demean thei-nsc-!ves As to many of them (the purest in blood, and the most distinguished for intellect), we feel perfectly at ease on this point. They may shake their heads and frown, and even threaten, but the spirit of the real gentleman will prevail over that of the parti- san, and in the end Hysbus y dangos y dyn o ba ran y bo ei wreiddyn." Having before spoken of the blue ocean subsiding, we may further remark that whilst the thunder storm raged, the red lightning flashed, and threatened destruction to all those dauntless breasts that exposed themselves to its fury, bift it is contrary to the laws of nature that such violent Wtrnmotions should last; the dark and frowning c l,')Iads ",$Vill gradually dis- perse, the thunder will mutter fti threats more and more in the distance, some pattering drops of rain will fall, and then the atmosphere will AtRto the blue em- pyrean will re-ap'pear in all its seretti^«Mgni6eence, and the sun w-11 shed its beneficent rays on all alike. Let the proudest son of earth (a worm at best) consider how, with power, benevolence, forbearance, are merciiuilv blended in the phenomena to which we have been alluding, and let him pause before he dares to tyrannize over his brother mortals! As to the details of the election4t this place, suffice it to say that our perfect organisation here extorted repeated exclamations of surprise from our opponents. Lpt Cardigan take a leaf from our let them unite and they will find that" union is pow, Let them do this and act with method and organisation, and at the next contest they will surely poll more than 28 out of a constituency of 159, more than one half of which are at heart liberal. Lampeter did its duty, and kept up to its mark, as was to be expected from the known talents and cool judgment of its blue chiefs in that neigh- bourhood, As to Aberystwith, we presume to speak of her only as our respected eldest, whose example we have endeavoured to follow, and we hope she is satisfied with her little youngest sister. Mr. Pryse's consenting to be chaired here, we consider as a marked compliment to our exertions in his cause. The ceremony passed off with the greatest eclat. Never was dlPre before seen such a concourse of people at Newcastle Emlvn. We have purposely abstained from particularizing individuals, but with respect to Newcastle and Lam- peter, (with whose doings we are more particularly informed), we cannot forbear mentioning that the Campbell's are coming was the favourite tune at Newcastle, and that the name of Thomas" was a rally- ing cry there, whilst at Lampeter II ighmead," & Cas- tr-ll-du." were magic sounds which conjuf«d up a host of vote. Qther humbler individuals thwj^re at New- castle, wb4ise names we would fain mention, but when all behaved so excellently, it would perhaps be invidious to do so, and we the more willingly forbear to name thpm, because we know that their ardent zeal and tinlirinv activity are fully known and appreciated. Tiianks to the judicious and gentlemanly demeanor of Capt. Scott and Capt. Freeman, and of their respective police superintendents, as well as to the good conduct of the Newcastle people, everything passed off quietly, without a man heing taken into custody, and without a single breach of the peace.
I ABERYSTWYTH ELECTION MATTERS. Last week was an eventful one in the annals of Aber- vzl wy-ii, Ntr. Pryse hiving returned from Buscot Park in the beginning of the week, came on Wednesday I to Aberystwyth from Gogerddan, and together with his committee proceeded immediately to canvass the con- stituency for the last time previous to the grand t.trug- gle. 011 Saturday the polling commenced about eight o'clock: the booth was erected in the Corn Market; the morning was very rainy, notwithstanding which Mr?. Prrse and her daughter Miss Pryse, were in t??nby'/m-p'nty d?wn. Mr.Prysehimseifbeingat Cardigan—his brother Captain Pryse at Adpar-his other brother, Mr. J. P. Pryse at Lampeter. The ma- j?!tynfthcvntt-rshMd polled, and it was about 3 u'clock j vv hen the avenue to the p dling booth was darkened by I an immense procession—crowding the street to suffoea- ti ir. These esco ted Mr. R. Pugh, who was carried on a sofa to vote for Mr. Pryse. Not maiiv days before be had undergone a most dangerous and difficult surgic I operation, and it was at the hazard of his life that he came out of his bed. Every one about him, including his wife and family dissuaded him from the action. Se- veral of Mr. Pryse's supporters and committee-men when they heard of his determination, went to rrrnlm strate with him, and informed him that Mr. Pryse would 10,000 times rather lose his election than that he should risk his life. But all could not avail, the heroic old man (71) sairi-" die of course I must die, but not before I give my vote for Mr. Pryse and he insisted upon being taken to the polling booth,whither he was carried by t<-o of his sons in law (captains of vessels in the harbour), and several of his other friends. It is gratifying to know that Mr. Robert Pugh is now improving rapidly, and the inference is that the excitement of Saturday has done him good, together of course with the sense of having contributed towards the triumph of Mr. Pryse. A little after four o'clock, John Miller. Esq., the mayor, closed the poll, and announced that Mr. Pryse had a majority of 110 at Aberystwith, and significantly said that this time there should be no mistake about the P,)Il Books. It should be said that the worthy Mayor, during the w h'lle day, conducted himself with the greatest urbanity and good humour The excitement in the town was extreme—this increased every minute until a little after ten, when it was an- nounced from Mr. Pryse's Committee Room, at the Gogerddan Arms, that Mr. Pryse had a majority of 7 upon the gross poll of the four boroughs. This was the climax. There was an extempore movement amongst the band of music. The big drum sounded the tocsin -the sailors snatched their flags, and a dense mass sallied forth through the stree's, when to the extreme regret of Mr. Pryse's committee and friends, several windows were broken, though no one was insulted or hurt. ABERYSTWITH, TIIURSDAY.The "Crowning rose of the wreath" took place to-day, when Mr. Pryse was chaired at Aberystwith—the excitement was if possible greater than on Saturday, and the weather being also most propitious, the crowds that wended their way to the town from earliest dawn were beyond any precedent. Between I and 3 the Gogerddan party arrived in town headed by Capt. Pryse, and John Pugh Pryse, Esq., Mr. Pryse's two affectionate brothers, on horseback; then followed Mr. Pryse himself; then followed the Gogerddan carriages, with Mrs. Pryse, M iss Pryse, &c., the procession with some hundred or two of the Go- gerddan tenants on horseback. The postal arrange- ments of Aberystwith will not permit a dilated account of the doings of the day but we may say that Mr. Pryse ascended the chair at the Gogerddan Arms about half-past two amidst the most deafening cheers of thousands that surrounded the Lion door and he never looked better. The procession was then formed and preambulated the town. On the return of the procession to the Committee-roorr-, Mr. Pryse addressed the dense crowd from the first floor of the Gogerddan Arms. He spoke both in Welsh and English, and in each language with equal effect. Tillle and the post will not permit us to give more than his concluding paragraph in which he besought the crowd in the name of their old friend whom they had just lost, (alluding to his father), and for the sake of him- self and his family not to sully the victory they were that day celebrating by committing the slightest mis I chief, but to go to there homes peaceably like Christian me [ADVERTISEMENT.]—BROTHER ELECTORS OF CAR- DIGAN,-Allow me most sincerely to condole with you on the low estate into which you have sunk in the scale of elective franchise, and that you are no more worthy of the name of independent electors, but rather of that of serfs as in old feudal times. During the strug- gle which has just taken place in the Cardiganshire boroughs, it has been my misfortune to witness such scenes as I hope the ballot will soon for ever put an end to men, or rather not men, but slaves driven to the poll, bound in the chains of landlords despotism for instance I could mention of a landlord hanging at the throat of a miserable tenant till he was ordered (by the polling officer) to be released for the purpose of recording his vote, contrary to both his will and his conscience. Why do ye not rouse yourselves as men ? Why do ye not follow the noble example of the men at Aberystwith, Adpar, and Lampeter, who in spite of intimidation and threats, have succeeded in returning Mr. Pryse, who is a sincere friend to the great principles of civil and reli- gious liberty and steady reform of all abuses. There'is plenty of the cry blue for ever" amongst you, but still your poll shows the astounding majority of 92 for the red candidate, who is of thorough going, stick in the mud, intolerant Tory principles let it never then again be said of you Where there is great cry there is little wool." Take this hint from your sorrowful, BHOTIIER ELECTOR. The annual cattle fair at Cardigan, designated the fair after winter," was held at Cardigan on the 13th instant. The show of horses and cattle was extremely good, and a fair attendance of purchasers. The sales were tolerably brisk at late prices. CARDIGAN COUNTY COURT.—The usual monthly court in this town was held before his Honor John Johnes, Esq., but although there were numerous plaints entered there was nothing of any public interest. I CARDIGAN.—We are glad to learn that it is intended to light the streets of this town with oil lamps. It is a subject of great surprise that this desirable object has not long before this period been adopted, as the noc- turnal scenes occurring have long been a disgrace to the place. A rate of one penny in the pound is estimated to cover the expense after the first cost of erecting the lamps. A LIFE BOAT FOR CARDIGAN.—In accordance with the wish expressed by a requisition signed by a very numerous and respectable body of the inhabitants of Cardigan, William Phillips. Esq., the mayor, has given notice of a public meeting to be held in the Town-hall, for the purpose of adopting measures to establish a life boat and apparatus for this coast. We trust in our next impression to be able to inform our readers, that this great desideratum has been accomplished.
.1 ?, 1-11,111- 11-?- GLAMORGANSHIRE. NFATH.-ON Tuesday the Neath Town Council decided upon erecting a slaughter house, for the use of the butchprs, killing- for this market. A desideratum much wanted. The site fixed upon is in a fidd hr. longing to II. J. Grant, Esq., near the Neath Castle, and opposite the timber yard occupied by Mr. Allen. Messrs. Gate and Ward, the parties who have taken con tract No. 3 in the ale of Neath Railway, received an immense quantity of carts, wr.ggons, barrws, planks, and other plant by the Swifisure" steamer from Gloucester on Monday, which have been forwarded to their destination at the head of Neath VaHey. these gentlemen and Mr. Ritson, who has taken No. 4 con- tract on the line, intend commencing operations forth- with. ACCIOET. On Monday a boy aged 14, a son of Thomas Hughes, a beerhouse keeper, at the Skewen, in the employ of the Neath Abbey Iron Company, got entangled in a steam engine at Baglan, by which he sustained a fracture of his leg and other severe injuries. Hopes are entertained of his recovery. THE MORMONITES.— EMIGRATION To CALIFORNIA. -Tiie Ilerald says that there was quite a sen- sation created in Swansea on Tuesday, by the arrival of a large number of laden waggons and carts, accompanied by two or three hundred country people, who came to Swansea for the purpose of embarking by the Trouba- dour" steamer, for Liverpool. From that port they purpose sailing for New Orleans, thence to the regions of California. From New Orleans tllpir i-oiite is to St. Louis on the Missouri, thence to Council Bluffs, a Mormonite settlement., and thence to Salt Lake in California. They do not go in quest of gold, but for the purpose of cultivating the land. This extraordinary expedition formed the general topic of discussion and conversation amongst all dtirin, the whole day. These people were all adherents of the sect called Lat- ter-day saints," or Mormotutes, whose doctrines caused so much religious excitement, and eventually bloodshed in the United States some time since. Their tenets have made rapid progress vvi'hin the last year or two, among the peasantry of this and the adjoining Welsh counties, especially in parts of Carmarthenshire and Cardiganshire. Nearly all are monoglot Welsh, there being but very few, with whom we have conversed, that can speak English with any degree of facility. Indeed, the majority can hardly speak a word. Like ail the Welsh peasantry they are exceedingly simple and artless, and the feeling excited in the minds of most people, in witnessing them was that of pity. Many of them were substantial farmers who had sold all their possessions one or two were deemed wealthy. These assist the poorer saints," as they denominate themselves. We heard of one clearing the passage of 30 or 40 of the needy. They look upon their scheme as quite a religious expedition to Jerusalem, and positively disclaim being fortune seekers, or that they are in the slightest degree influ- enced by the intelligence of the unprecedented wealth of this modern El Dorado They assert that their American brethren, who had been driven by persecution to California, were the first discoverers of the wealth of the region. These statements are certainly partly founded in truth, for this design of emigration was conceived previous to the news of the grand discovery reaching- us. However it is known that the ardour of the greater number had, from some cause, suffered con- siderable diminution—some had entirely abandoned the scheme—and whether the golden news" has sti- i mu!ated their cold loves," and given increased vigour to their energies, forms another question. It is ex- pected that an immense number of the" saints" from North Wales and other districts will meet them at Liverpool. One of their body, known as Captain Jones," an "elder" among them, anpears to be the manager of the expedition from this district. This individual delivered a kind of valedictory discourse to his diAple8 at the Trades Hall last evening. GOVERNORS OF COLONIES.—From a Parliamentary return it appears that there are 4o Governors, Lieu- tenant-Governors, &c., in the colonies, of which number 10 are in the receipt of naval or military pay beyond their salaries. Three governors receive £ 7,000 a-vear each, the highest amount paid; and two £ .500, the lowest sum paid. Two are paid 1:6,000 each; five L5,000 two, £ 4,000; four, 1:3,000 and the others smaller sums. Sir W. M. Gomm, the Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Port Louis, has a salary of £ 7,000, and £ 1,122 18s. lid. as a colonel in the army BRISTOL SUGAR MARKET. FEB. 14.—Since this week the sales in NV. I. Sugar have been of but t,ifling extent, consisting principally of Chrystalized Demeraras at 41s. to 43s. per cwt. For refining sorts we have strong buyers but business to any great extent is checked by the extreme rates demanded by merchants, who refuse to give way in price. — Bristol Gazette. In consequence of the inadequate accommodation of the hall at Reading, and the refusal of the ma- gistrates to enlarge it, the judges having decided on removing the assizes for Berkshire to Abingdon. SWINDLING.—In October last, a young man of gen tlemanly address, calling himself Charles Vernon, look lodgins at the house of Mrs. Allen, who keeps a con- fectioner's shop in Siddall's-lane, Derby. He paid re- gularly for some weeks; but latterly he pleaded as an excuse for non-payment that he had been disappointed in receiving some money. lie manifested much interest in Mrs. Allen's affairs and at length, by showing her letters with Col. Maberlv's name attached, persuaded her that he had got for her the appointment of post- mistress, and that she wa? tn go to town immediately. The fellow saiv her off by the train, and gave her a letter to his solicitor," who would give herfl.200 for him and also a letter to the landlord of the York Hotel, Weilington-street. Mrs. Allen accordingly went to London, and presented her introduction to the landlord, who did not know Mr. Vernon, but made her comforta- ble and on the following morning the pot brought her a letter from Mr. Vernon, requesting her immediate return, as his solicitor had unexpectedly arrived in Derby. Mrs. Allen returned accordingly,and found that her lodger had fiown, leaving her to lament over a loss of jESO. and a neighbour to regret tendinsrhim JL20, and another tradesman to put up with the loss of about £ 20 worth of goods.

Mr. Lloyd, had been taken to Dublin from Liverpool, where he was arrested. The captain of the steamer states that, on the passage, the prisoner freely admitted his guilt-simply adding, by way of extenuation, that he could not refuse to act as he had done. He was a member of a ribbon society, at a considerable dis tance from the scene of the murder, and the lot fell upon him to carry out the decree of Strokestown. He says he was bound to do it. If he had not done it, he himself would have been shot. He had never heard of the Rev. Mr. Lloyd until he received his instructions to mur- der him, and the way he carried out his horrible mission is worthy of a place in the Thug records of the country. He says that he dressed himself like a beggar, and stationed himself at the door of the church from which the rev. gentleman had to issue. Tiipii, to make sure of his victim, he asked him by his name for charity, which was responded to by some donation. The villain then made his way across a field to the high road where Mr. Llovd should pass, and where his assistants were in waiting. Too wee] he executed his commission. One of his aides stepped forward, and, taking hold of the reins of the horse, stopped him while the prisoner deliberately shot the reverend gentleman dtad in his gig. His servant escaped uninjured. Such are the awful facts admitted in the presence of the officer in whose charge he was taken over from Liverpool, the captain of the vessel, and other gentlemen.

GENTLEMEN, NOTHIXG but the belief that I should have a de- cisive Majority over my Opponent could possibly have induced me to subject these Borouglis o the ex. citement and inconvenience of deciding the Contest between us by going to the Poll. This conviction proceeded on the faith of positive promises, and of calculations which were deemed by the most intelligent of my friends unquestionably correct. I will not analyse the causes which have falsified these calculations, because I should be sorry to foment at this moment bitter feelings in any quarter. Suffice it to say, we have lost the Election by a minority of Seven. Be assured, that had the result been different, my best endeavours should not have been wanting to serve my country on Conservative principles, and to have stu- diously watched over your local interests. I shall quit this neighbourhood with the delightful reflection that I have not condescended in the whole course of this contest to a single unworthy act to pro- cure Votes, or to induce any Voter to falsify his pru- mise. I have to thank nearly the whole of the Clergy and Gentry connected with these Boroughs and no small portion of the most respectable of its constituency for their strenuous support ana personal exertions in aid of the Conservative Cause on this occasion. I have also most gratefully to acknowledge the warm hospitality and personal kindness with which I have been every where received. On each side I am very sure we shllli not cease to cherish mutual sentiments of esteem and friendship. To the constituency of the Town of Cardigan in par- ticular, I owe a deep debt of gratitude for the cordiality of their support. I am also greatly indebted in the same way to the Borough of Lampeter. In Cardigan, the numbers were-HAItPOItD, 120, PRYSE. 28; in Lam- I pcter,-HARFORD, 7S, PRYSE, 49. I take leave of you, Gentlemen, with the most sincere and heartfelt wishes for the Prosperity of these Bo- roughs, and have the honour to be, Your faithful and obedient Servant, JOHN S. HARFORD.

FLSHOLIARD, Fen. 8.—An extensive seizure was made this evening by Lieutenant Richards, of the Coast Guard, and Mr. Hugh Davies, of the customs two hundred and thirteen bags of tobacco were found concealed at a farm house near this town. The dis- covery has caused the greatest excitement in the place, as the officers are in possession of information (it is said) which is likely to lead to further extensi ve de- tections. The farm where the bags were discovered belongs to a wealthy shopkeeper in this place, who has not been hitherto suspected of any smuggling transactions. Great praise is dlle to the gallant lieu- tenant for his indefatigable zeal in guarding the coast egainst these formidable smugglers.
