Aberystwith has lost a sincere friend to its interests, and his numerous tenantry, the best of landlords. lIe successfully contested one of these boroughs on two occasions, viz. — In 18-19, after the demise of his late father Pryse Pryse, Esq., M.P and on the last general election in 1852, on both which occasious he was most vigorously opposed; on the first occasion by J. S. Harford, Esq., and on the last by J. 1. Jones, Esq.. j His remains were conveyed from London to Gogcrddan, and interred with his ancestors at the Old Church of' Llanbadarn-fawr, on Wednesday, the 7th instant. The' funeral was considered the largest ever witnessed in this locality, not only for the number of tenantry,_but for the private carriages that attended. All the shops, offices, and other places of resort in the town were kept closed during the day, and every other usual manifestation of regret was shown Long before the ap- pearance of the mournful cavalcade, thousands of people thronged the road to Llanbadarn and every eminence afford- ing a view, and conducted themselves most appropriate to the occasion. The following is the order of procession observed, as it approached the church, where the service was impressively read by the Rev. J.
