The election for the Carmarthen Boroughs takes place to-day, and before this impression will reach many of our readers, Mr. David Morris will be re-elected without any opposition. At 11 o'clock an address will be pre- sented to him, in approval of his Parliamentary conduct. This congratu lator address, a copy of which we published last week, has been signed by more than four-fifths of the electors, and is entrusted for presentation to Mr. Lewis Morris. When this ceremony terminates the nomination will be made by Capt. J. G. Philipps, and seconded by Mr. C. W. Nevill, Llangcnnech Park. Of course the proceedings will be formal. Business will be suspended in the town, but no music, banners, nor other demonstration will be permitted. In the evening Mr. Morris's friends will dine together at the Assembly Room. In Haverfordwest the nomination takes place to-day, when Mr. J. II. I'hilipps and Mr. W. Rees will appear before the electors to state their political creed or in- tentions. A severe contest is expected. Mr. Philipps has many warm supporters who strenuously exert them- selves for his return and his independent political career has disarmed the opposition of the more moderate Liberals. His friends arc confident of success, and appeal to the votes of five years in proof of political intelligence and freedom from party. Mr. Rees is represented as a Radical, in favour of those measures which are advo- cated in Parliament by what are sometimes called the advanced Reformers." He speaks in positive terms of being returned having obtained promises of support from a majority of voters. The polling will be on Saturday. For the Cardigan Boroughs Capt. Pryse will this day be returned without opposition. The nomination will be of comparatively little interest, as the political opinions of Sir. Pryse arc well known to the electors, rendering it unnecessary for him to do no more than broadly state the principal features of his policy. On Tuesday next the election for the county of Carmarthen will take place at Llandilo, when Mr. Saunders Davies and Mr. Jones will be re-elected. A contest is still talked of for Cardiganshire, but up to the present moment the address of Lord Lisburne is the only one issued. Mr. Lloyd of uronwydd, has been prominently mentioned as the op- ponent of the noble Earl, on Liberal principles. A nu- merously signed requisition has been presented to him; but we have not yet learnt the result. It is expected lie will go to the poll, and were he to do so he would have a fair cuance of success as he is personally esteemed throughout the county, and possesses the knowledge and character essential to something more than a scat in the House of Commons, and his political opinions arc safe and in accordance with the progressive spirit of tho age.
