The political gossip which we last week stated was pre- valent with reference to the probable successor of Col. Powell, has resolved itself into a more definite form. In another part of our impression will be found an address issued to the electors of Cardiganshire by Lord Lisburne who stands for- ward as a claimant on conservative grounds, but avers that he is prepared to support "measures and not men." On Monday an influential meeting of electors was held at Aber- avron which his lordship attended, and it is understood that he received a general promise of support. Mr. Lloyd Davies, has also been mentioned as likely to come forward. It has also been very currently circulated that Mr. Lloyd of Bron- wydd, who is an advocate of progressive legislation, intended offering himself as a candidate. We are, however, in a position to state, that though he has been very warmly pressed to do so, and has been promised an effective support, his strong repugnance to embroiling the county in the turmoil of a contest induces him to forego an appeal to the electors. This determination, however, only affects the present, and it is more than probable that Mr. Lloyd, will hold in reserve for the next favourable juncture that course of pro- cedure which a numerous circle of friends have urged upon him at the present period. On Tuesday a committee of Liberals sat at the Gogerddan arms, to deliberate on the propriety of bringing forward an opponent to Lord Lis- burne, and the result of the conference, was a decision not to oppose the noble lord. Rumours of every shade are prevalent and squibs are extensively circulated re- questing the voters to withhold their promises. These are all the movements pro. and con. which have yet transpired, and thus the matter rests. We perceive that a writ for the election has been issued on the motion of Mr. Saunders Davies, so that anticipation and expectancy must soon give way to stern reality. Our next impression will in all probability contain a very decisive, if not a final statement of the position of affairs.
