THE CHOLERA IN EGYPT AXD TURKEY.- TRIESTE, July 15.—Advices from Alexandria to the 14th inst. show a decided decrease in the mortality resulting from cholera.

A a quarantine of two days will be imposed upon all arrivals from Epirus and Constantinople. CONSTANTINOPLE, July 12 (via Marseilles). — The cholera is spreading here. The total number of cases that have proved fatal is 32 in the naval hospital and 11 in the city. Strict sanitary measures have ,Ind 11 in the city. Sti? been adopted. THE WIMBLEDON MEETING.-The Queen's Prize yesterday decided who was the winner of the great prize of the year, and the honour has fallen upon one of those quiet and unpretending competitors whose name has scarcely been mentioned during the present meeting. The contest, as we have said, began with only 60 competitors at the range of 100 yards; but even here the good fortune of Mr Ross was not equal to former times, for his total score was 20, Sergeant Churchill, of the 1st London, making 23, Corporal Seal, 3rd Somerset, making 22, and Ensign Norcombe, of the 1st Devon, making a similar number. The next range was at 900 yards, at which Private Dawe of the Victorias made a high score, 23 points; whilst Mr Edward Ross made only 14; Sergeant Ingram, 1st Lanarkshire, «ho shot in the same squad, made 20, and Corporal Walters, 21. while private Sharman "f 1.Q dth West York (Halifax), made 2-5 points. Earl Spencer made 24. Th-re were some very good scores made at this range. The range was then removed to the extreme part of the common at the 1,000 yards, and of course the tiring points were attended by many ladies and others interested in the result. The squad which contained Mr E. Ross also contained Sergeant Holme, who had been in the first stage for the silver medal, and also Corporal Ferguson, 1st Inverness, from whom so much was expected. In another squad was Earl Spencer, 1st Northamptonshire, whose total score was 53, but the next highest score to the winner was made by Ensign Block, 22d Middlesex [Queen's Westminster], who made 59 points Private Dawe, Victoria. 58 Sergeant Little, 3d Gloucestershire, 57 and Private Hamerton, 12th Middlesex, 57. The shooting was divided into four squads, and on its being made known that Private Sharman, 4th West Yorkshire, had made 64 points at the conclusion of the shooting for this squad, some of his companions mounted him upon their shoulders, and carried hinf away in triumph. As the other squads had not completed their shooting, and as there is many a slip," &c., Mr Sharman protested against the honours forced upon him, being then but uncertain. They protested that nothing could beat him; and so it turned out, and as they passed the large tent on their way to the council tent, followed by a large crowd, crying out, "Well done, York," the band of the London Rifle Brigade played See, the conquering hero comes amid the most hearty cheering. The state of the doubt was not of long duration, for in about a quarter of an hour a notice was issued from the statistical tent declaring Mr. Sharman to be the winner. At the 1,000 yards range the shooting of Mr Sharman, was wonderful, he having made four bull's eyes, three of them in succession. The other three shots consisted of two centres and an outer.
LOCAL MARKETS. I CARMARTHEN CORN MARKET FOR THE WEEK END- ING JULY 20, 1865.-There has been no marked difference in the weather this week from the last, still showery, but quite genial. The hay harvest is unusu- ally forward, the grain crops in many places ready for the sickle. The supply of grain very small and prices I unchanged- We quote — Wheat 5s. Od. to 5s. (;d. per 641bs. II Barley. 3s. 3d. to 3s. Gd. per 541bs. Oats. 2s. 3d. to 2s. Od. per 401bs. I BUTTER.—At our market on Saturday last, we bad a fair supply with firm prices, say lid to ll^d per lb. CUEEsE.-The trade small and prices steady, say 28s to 30s per cwt. BRISTOL SUGAR MARKET.—There has been a steady demand for sugar during the week, and stiffer prices have been obtained. Sales consist chiefly of Barbarloes. There has been little doing in RUM. The market is firm, and Id per gallon advance asked. SOUTH WALES.—There have been heavy falls of rain in this district during the last few days, and immense benefit has followed to the growing crops and pastures. At the local markets there was not a large attendance of either buyers or sellers, the elections having to a great extent interfered with trade. For the home- grown wheat on offer sellers attempted to obtain an ad- vance, but buyers declined to purchase except at the old prices, and in consequence very few transactions took place. Since last week's report the arrivals of foreign wheat have been about the average, and the sales °have been comparatively small. Barley has only been in moderate request, while oats are decidedly more inquired for, and prices better supported. The following were the average quotations -AViieat 4s lid to 5s 4d per bushel ditto, inferior, 4s 7d to 4s 10d; barley, 3s Id to 3s Gd ditto, inferior, 2s lOd to 3s Id; oats, 2s 2d to 2s 6d ditto, inferior, Is 9d to 2s Id.

I regard your choice of me as your Representative as the most decided proof of your confidence, and I can assure you that no exertion shall be wanting on my part to promote the interests of my Constituents, irre- spective of party. I hope, nw that the contest is over, all bitterness of feeling will be buried in oblivion. I remain, Gentlemen, Your obedient and fai thful servant, THOMAS DAVIES LLOYD. Bronwydd, July 19th, 18G5. BAZAAR-On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday last a Bazaar tor the sale of fancy articles was held at the Public Rooms, III this town, in aid of Llandefeilog New Church fund. The following ladies presided at the different sta s .—-Mrs. W. Morris, Coombe; Mrs. Philipps, and the Misses Philipps, Bolahaul L\1rs. Hancock and Miss F, Williams Mrs. Thompson. Park Cottage and the Misses Jeffries, Picton-terrace. There was from some unforeseen causes rather a small at- tendance. particularly during the last two days although the Church fund has been increased by a considerable amount from <£80 to having been realized.
THE result of the election- so far as we are able to learn, is decidedly in favour of the Go- vernment. A careful inspection, of the list up to Wednesday shows that the Liberals have lost twenty-nine and won fifty seats, making a net gain of twenty-one. That this will be increased substantially before the end of the week," says the Globe, "we have no doubt, for if tll3 county contests proceed as they have begun the galIi will be very nearly doubled." It was exacted that 572 members would be elected by Wedlle3- day evening—of these 332 arc classed as Liberals and 210 Conservatives. There then re naiiied 8b members to be elected, and out of these it is believed the Conservatives will have about half, or according to some calculations oO seats; this making the voting strength of the Conservatives 290. The Liberal majority in the new Parliament, based on the same calculations, will be about 70 votes. These figures may not be strictly correct, but they are the result of an impartial exa- mination of the returns, and of reports froal various parts of the country where the returns have not been made. The election which has excited the greatest amount of interest throughout the country during the week, is that for the Uni- versity of Oxford. The poll closed on Tuesday night, when the numbers were—Sir W. Heath- cote, 3,236; Mr Gathorne Hardy, 1,904; Mr Gladstone 1,721. Mr Gladstone has, therefore, lost the seat for the University which he has held for eighteen years, and which he very highly prized, by a majority of 180 in favour of Mr Hardy. On Monday Mr Gladstone went into Lancashire, and on Tuesday he spoke at great length on the policy of the Government, to an immense audience in the Free Trade Hall, Manchester. He subsequently addressed a large meeting in the Amphitheatre at Liverpool. He has been most enthusiastically received, and is now a candidate for South Lancashire, and from a telegram received at the moment we write, he was at the head of the poll. The poll will not close until after the hour at which we publish. The elections in our own immediate district were brought to a close on Wednesday, when Mr D. Jones and Mr D. Pugh were returned without opposition for the county of Carmarthen. Both members were well received. Mr Jones was nominated by Mr Powell, of Maesgwynne, and seconded by Mr Peel, of Taliaris; Mr Pugh was nominated by Capt. Lloyd, of Glan- sevin, and seconded by Mr Brigstocke, of Gelly- dywyll. On Monday, Mr George Lort Phillips was re-elected for the county of Pembroke, with- out opposition. He was proposed by Mr Bowen, of Llwyngwair, and seconded by Mr Adams, of Holyland. The proceedings in these two county elections excited comparatively little interest, but in Cardiganshire there has been a most severe ind hard-fought contest. The two" candidates were Sir T. J). Lloyd, Bart., of Bronwycld, and Mr David Davies, of Llandinam, Montgomery- shire, an eminent railway contractor. The nomi- nation was on Saturday, when Sir Thomas was proposed by Mr John Pugh Pryse, of Bwlch- bychan, and seconded by Mr T. O. Morgan, of Aberystwith; Mr Davies was nominated by Mr Jones, of Llwyngroes, and seconded by Mr Jen- idn Thomas, of Llaethliiw. The proceedings were most orderly, presenting none of those scenes which usually disgrace a contested election. The speakers were all listened to with attention, there being very few inter- ruptions and no noisy demonstration whatever. fhe polling was on Tuesday, and not a stone was left unturned by the candidates and their more active supporters. It was a hard contest, fought fairly and honourably, and won by Sir Thomas Lloyd with a triumphant majority of 361 the number of votes being-Sir Thomas Lloyd, 1,510; and Mr Davies, 1,149. This must tot be looked upon as a contest between the two great political parties into which the county is divided. There is very little difference in the political opinions of the two candidates. Both ire professedly Liberal and in favour of Lord Palmerston's Government. Sir Thomas is, per- haps, not so far advanced as Mr Davies, and as we understand he wishes to be an independent member untrammelled by party ties. "Vhile gene- rally approving' of Lord Palmerston's administra- tion he would be guided in voting by his own independent judgment. In fact, he is for measures not men." But in conviction he is a Liberal, and although he owes his seat to the Conservatives, he says, I am a Liberal, but a "moderate one, determined to stand by the old "institutions of the country—to adhere to our venerable monarchy—and to maintain unimpaired the union of Church and State." Mr Davies goes further than this, but he has not been so explicit in declaring his political creed as his opponent. Politics, however, seem to have been pushed aside altogether, for the question before the electors was really one of personal confidence. Sir Thomas Lloyd had long been adopted, with his own concurrence, as the Liberal candidate for the county, and when he withdrew, being pledged not to oppose Col. Powell, his friend,, forsook him, or at any rate the greater part of them. They were under an impression that he had too readily yielded to the op- posite party, knowing their 'intention if possible to secure the re-election of Colonel Powell. We believe there was no such compact, and therefore Sir Thomas could not con- nive at it. But his retirement gave the Liberals an opportunity of shaking off their allegiance to him, for they had long entertained grave doubts that he was true to his professions. It was generally said, Sir Thomas is a Con- servative, but he does not know it." It was not, therefore, altogether his withdrawal from a contest with Colonel Powell that split the Liberals. The elements of dissension were already in the camp, and only a decent pretext for breaking out into open rebellion was re- quired. All this would have been avoided by a little more firmness and decision on the part of Sir Thomas Lloyd, than whom no one in the county of Cardigan is personally more highly esteemed for all those virtues and excellencies which men of all parties admire and respect. But an extreme desire on his part to conci liate all and to give offence to none, led to the conclusion that he was not faithful to his prin- ciples. At the last moment the Conservatives came to his rescue, and he is now the Member for Cardiganshire. They might have put for- ward a candidate of their own, for, under the circumstances, victory was sure, but, to use the words of Sir Thomas himself, the Conserva- ti ves," he said on the hustings, have risen superior to party claims, and given me their honourable support, although a great difierence of opinion exists between us." We must speak in the highest terms of the man- ner in which this contest has been conducted both by Sir Thomas Lloyd and Mr Davies. It was a hard fight, in which some warmth was necessary, but there were no riotous dis- turbances—no really bad feeling, so far as we have been able to learn. As we have already said, this can hardly be regarded as a party struggle. Both parties were divided. Many of the old Liberal interests in the county, the Gogerddan for instance, stood firm to Sir Thomas, but the others went for Mr Davies, whose strength, however, lay in the small freeholders. He had, too, substantial assistance from several Conservatives of great influence. But the election of Sir Thomas was carried by the Conservatives, who have thus obtained a knowledge of what they can accomplish if united. It is utterly impossible to get at the political opinions of a county by grouping the constituents into Dissenters and Churchmen. Men are not necessarily Conservative be- cause they are Churchmen, nor Liberal be- cause they are Dissenters. Sir Thomas has now obtained a seat in Parliament, and it rests entirely with himself whether he keeps it un- disturbed or not. He has a plain course before him, which he should enter upon with firmness and decision. In no other way can he satisfy his constituents. That is the practical lesson taught by this contest. And, so far as we are ourselves concerned, we are satisfied that we have honestly and fairly, as we were bound to do, represented the opinions and feelings of the more intelligent part of the constituency. In- deed, no one who has closely watched the struggle from beginning to end can for a mo- ment doubt it.
consider it one of those difficult and delicate ones on which so much difference of opinion exists, that a member should give his vote without reference to party bias. I much doubt whether they are not rather a source of weakness than strength to the church, and I am quite certain that the Dissenters have to thank themselves for their present existence, for the strong reaction in their favour has been caused by the avowal of the Liberation Society that it looks upon their aboli- tion as a stepping stone to the severance of the Church and State, a conclusion from which I entirely differ. [Cheers.] A few words as to education. There is no better friend to the educational cause than Mr Pugh himself, an accomplished scholar, brought up at Rugby, a school renowned for its sound learning. He is well able to admire the literature of Wales, and is its judicious critic and liberal patron but I take it he will agree with me in thinking that though Welsh is a great and grand language, it is very essential to the welfare of the country that English should be intro- duced too, and I honestly and firmly believe that there is nothing calculated to confer such solid and per- manent benefits on the country as the establishment, throughout its length and breadth, of schools, where the children of the middle and working classes could obtain a sound secular education, and where the Bible would be the sole book of religious instruction, all sectarian formularies and catechisms being rigorously excluded. I will detain you no longer. I have before alluded to Mr Pugh's liberality in the cause of religion and charity. He is equally generous in supporting our local institutions, our agriculture, our amusements, and I feel sure all of you will join with me in expreseing a sincere hope that he may long be spared health and strength to serve us as faithfully and as independently as he hitherto has done. [Loud cheering.] The High Sheriff having asked the usual question three times, whether there was any other candidate, and receiving no answer, he declared Mr Jones and Mr Pugh duly elected, amid the cheers of the audience. Mr Jones, who was warmly received with cheers, said—I beg to offer you my most sincere and heartfelt thanks for the honour you have just conferred by re- turning me for the fifth time as one of the representa- tives of my native county. I have also to express my grateful acknowledgements to my old and valued friends, who have been kind enough to propose and second me. I believe that the popularity and respect, which they deservedly enjoy among all classes, have contributed in a great measure to the warm recepion accorded to me on this day. (Cheers.) I have always been, naturally and justly, proud of the high position in which you have placed me for more than thirteen years, but upon this occasion that pride and that plea- sure have been greatly increased by the presence of so many of my fair and beautiful countrywomen. If Mr Mill, the honourable member for Wes'minster, were to bring forward his proposition for giving ladies a vote, it would be very difficult for me to negative such a motion. [Laughter.] I have great pleasure in con- gratulating you upon the increased and growing prosperity of the country, but 1 deny that it is due to legislation or the financial measures of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. On the contrary I am of opinion that it is mainly owing to the un- daunted energy, to the intelligence and persevering industry of the British people. The Chancellor of the Exchequer (a Jesuit in politics, and a Jesuit in religion) appears to me to be guided in his policy by extreme hostility to the landed interest. (Loud cheers.) He boasts of the great success of the Commercial Treaty with France. It certainly has been a success as far as France is concerned, but we have the evidence of one of the warmest supporters of the Government, namely Lord Overstone, who was raised to the House of Peers solely on account of knowledge of Finance, that it was one of the most suicidal arrangements that we could ever have sanctioned. The French Treaty has given the wealthy classes cheaper champagne and claret, but it has forgotten cheap beer for the work- ing classes. Lord Overstone also said that the late Mr Cobden had been completely over-reached by the astute, and accomplished French statesmen, with whom he had arranged that Treaty. The Union Chargeability Bill was one of the greatest measures of the last Session of Parliament. I voted for referring that bill to a select Committee, because I had been told by serveral respectable freeholders here that it would inflict positive injustice upon them, and that their rates would be nearly doubled. When I tell you that the Freeholders of this County number three thousand, and the tenant farmers only fifteen hundred, I am sure you will acquit me of interested motives when I gave that vote. (Loud cheers.) My opinion about Church Rates are pretty well known in this county. I am myself the son of a Dissenter, and, in my younger days, I learnt to respect their prejudices and to ap- preciate the religious benefits which they conferred upon the community. I am, as I mentioned in my address, ready to relieve them from the payment of those rates. I am anxious to do them justice, but I will never consent to wrong my own church, which is generally allowed to be one of the most liberal and tolerant in the world. [Applause.] I voted against Mr Baines's motion, about a £6 franchise, as I knew it was AI ù"1.u.t.:11v.r1 10.1. movoljr l\1.I" 1. R» tn obtain a little fleeting popularity for the present Government. As the existing constituency of the kingdom had for 33 years exercised their pri- vilege in such an independent manner. I thought it very unjust that they should all be swamped by the passing of such a measure. I have always, and shall continue to do so, voted against the Ballot, which has become one of the annual farces of the House of Commons. (Laughter.) The venerable old gentleman, who brings it forward, cornea to our side of the House and reads his speech, containing a resume of all the ridiculous and absurd stories which he is credulous enough to believe. It is such a sneaking and un-English practice, that it would be a disgrace to us if such a measuie were passed. (Loud cheers.) The question now to be decided is, not between Lord Palmerston and Lord Derby, not between the latter and Mr Gladstone, who, I need not inform you is a political renegade, and like all perverts is bitter against those from whom he has seceded. I again thank you most deeply for the continuance of your kind support, and, though many of you may differ from me, I am sanguine enough to believe that you will give me credit for honest and sincere convictions. (Loud Cheers.) Mr Pugh, who on rising was received with deafening cheers, said—I return you my sincere thanks for the honor you have done me, and to my kind friends Mr Lloyd, of Glansevin, and Mr Brigstocke, of Gelly- dwyll. for the very able manner in which they have proposed and seconded me. I congratulate you on the increasing prosperity and on the unclouded prospects of this great county and it will ever be my earnest desire, whenever it can be done by legislation, to assist in promoting that prosperity and those prospects. (Applause.) I think that prosperity was essentially promoted by the Treaty of Commerce which has been formed with France, succeeded as it has been by similar Treaties with other nations, Belgium, Italy, Turkey, Prussia, and the Zollverein, and finally it seems with the Imperial Government of Austria and it is by these that the annals of the late Parliament have been most illustrated. It is not necessary now to enquire whether these Treaties are in accordance with, or contrary to the principles of Free Trade it is enough for us if they promote the prosperity of the Country and they seem not to be the exclusive policy of any particular party in the state. The name that in connection with them shines out with transcendent lustre is the great name of William Pitt. He was an ardent admirer of the works of Adam Smith, he sat at the feet of that Gamaliel of Political Economy. On the other hand his illustrious rival Mr Fox said he had never studied those works, and that all he knew of political economy he had learned from his master, Mr Burke. It was Mr Pitt who first brought those doctrines out of the Schools of French Philosophers, and recommended them to the House of Commons in strains of unri- valled eloquence. And speaking of his eloquence, we should do him great injustice if we judged it by the collection of his speeches, in which it is easy to see that we have before us only the remains of a giant. What if we had seen and heard him ? What must that eloquence have been, of which the remains are so divine. [Loud cheers.] But events prevailed over his eloquence. A sanguinary war ensued in which we heard more of the Berlin and Milan decrees than of the doctrines of Free Trade. The Continent was hermetically sealed to us. The first Napoleon said, if an empire were made of granite, the the political economists would grind it to powder. They received no favour from him. His reign, how- ever came to an end, and in this country they found a champion in Mr Huskisson, whose doctrines were ably expounded by Mr Canning and Sir Robert Peel. Years roll on, and bring us to our own times and it is but just to say that those principles have never been more powerfully supported than by the present Emperor of the French, Mr Cobden, and Mr Gladstone. I believe that the Treaties to which I have alluded, are the best guarantees for peace. (Loud cheers.) I now come to the question of church-rates, on which I wish to maintain not the slightest reserve. I have always considered them an inconvenient mode of maintaining the fabric of the church. This is the only country in the world in which such a custom is observed, and I think it ought to be dispensed with. That will not be accomplished by the efforts of individual members, but by the action ot an united Government, and whenever a measure of that kind is proposed, I shall give it my best consideration. I am for affording encouragement to the industry and enterprise of the working classes, and for finding them good investments for their earnings. Therefore I had great pleasure in supporting those measures to which I alluded in my address, and I think that much time will be saved in Unions, and the comfort of the poor promoted, by enlarging the area of chargeability. I wish tosee the working classes removed as much as possible from all temptations, and the Malt Duty so far reduced as to enable them to recreate their energies with a draught of the home-brewed. (Loud cheers.) 1 am unwilling to detain you longer. Let no one think that your kindness will be valued the less because we are returned without a struggle, Every one knows what Carmarthensbire could do if ever summoned to put forth her strength. The fire in the cavern of Etna concealed, Still mantles unseen in its secret recess: At length in a volume terrific revealed, No torrent can quench it, no bounds can repress May the Members for this county ever so conduct themselves that the lava of a contested election may never sweep them away. May they always so conduct themselves that if ever evoked, the waters of strife may quickly subside. I once more return you my best, thanks, and, last not least to the ladies who have graced this meeting with their presence. (Loud and long continued cheering.) The return having been formally made, Mr Jones said—I have now the pleasure of proposing that the thanks of this meeting be given to the High Sheriff for his able and impartial conduct in the chair. He is a gentleman well known and respected in the county and for whom I have, without any reference to politics, the highest regard and esteem. (Cheers.) Mr Puo'h said—It is with the greatest pleasure I rise to seconcfthe vote of thanks to the High Sheriff, whose duties have to-day been comparatively easy but I am convinced that however arduous and difficult they might have been in case of a contest,"he 1 would have discharged them in a manner worthy of all praise. [Cheers.] The High Sheriff said—I am exceedingly obliged to the honourable members for the kind way in which they have mentioned my name, and to you all for the kind way in which you received it. Holding as I do the high position of Sheriff for this county. I am precluded from expressing any political sentiment, but I am sure you will allow me to say that I am very much pleased to find that two resident gentlemen and freeholders have been to-day elected by you represent this county in Parliament. [Cheers. ] My task has been extremely easy to-day, and I am glad that, light as it was, I have given you satisfaction. [Cheers.] The proceedings then terminated.
