TERMINATION OF THE ELECTION, (From a Correspondent.) The Election Icrurinnled on Saturday, by the return of Sir Charles Paget, who was dêclarcd by the returning ollicol's duly elected. As to the tic. cision of these officers, and,those of Pwllheli, no one who attended the hustings at oitlierplace could have uxpcclcd otherwise, fürmore Hagrunl par tiality, more injustifiable and illegal, proceedings, on the part or the supporters of Sir Charles Pa^et, never occurred at any electioll either here 0)' at any other borough. At Pwllheli, the returning officers acted 11I0.t sll:ullcfnll.vID admlltmg to poil mCli who had not the leant pretention to at vote, under tho en ni nation of ,1/Oj1/}(/lIoppr.r8, men "ho never at auv former cIctiun exerdscc.1 the riht (Jf voting, or bavin* any idea of NO doing; but this is In accordance with the general rule prevailing at n1Csl III the elections now going .on, n system of subverting and overthyowing the government, and IIItJsl cvitlt!utly UPCl1crl to nbllc hy tlJl yovtrnnumt iftclf, in countenancing the political unions. Of the-e pohrtiiiuppvis Sir Charles Pagel's majority ((IIl:;istcd, when 011 the other hand the claim to the honour of rcprcsclltillg these boroughs in Parlia ment is in our worthy representative,'(/or sttih he is) O. J. Nanney, /•# whose majority of re y;>tneJ vot. iuJly and legally entitles him to a scat jn Pailiament, wherl: it is the intention of his fiHinds allll supporters 10 place him by a petition to ti e Honse fir Commulls against Sir Charles Pagct's return. A very considerable sum near !:lo(lo is already subscribed for that purpose, ac- rofftjwnud by u devlaiatwn lhal Afr. Nanney shall not be put to oucfàrllling's t1.penct!. On sumtnînlf up the number of vutes ihe rcluiing officers, as hdo,e said, declared Sir Charles Pagetduly elected. This declaration was manfully and spiritedly met by Mr. Hughes, Mr. Nanney's advocate, protesting aainst the return, who, together with Mr. Nanney, add sollie of his frieuds immediately left the hustings disgusted, and justly so, at the conduct of Ihe returning officers. Sir Charles was soon afler chaircd and carried through the town, ac- companied by Iwo dissenting preaciierSj JVm, Jotws, and Arthur Jonvs, and about eight or ten of the shopkeepers of the town, and a few imported out of Anglesey, to keep up an appearancc; the rest consisting of a rabble of the lowest order. The friends of Mr. Nanney, however, were resolved tliiit th" choice of the legal electors should Iso chair also, but prudently deferred it until SirCharfes's procession was o\er- Accordingly, at three o'clock, the nllendanee of Mr. Nanney's f-iends al the Goat Hotel was imu*co>e, where he was. placed in a chair, most handsouily and beautifully decorated, and the profession mored off, preceded by colours, an excellent band in uniform, then rnHowed some | huudie Is of the electors of the boroughs, 4 and 4 ahreast, tl?? hai, with our mcmber closing ti?i? "r.we,sion, surrounded by about Iwo thousand of his countrymen; the whole was conducted in a manner highly prUise.worthY 10 aU thnse who were present, neh a concourse of people fnr character aijd respectability never before paraded the ?treets of Carnarvon. The ,t?p, t.h?. to prevent insult and abuse front Sir Charles's rabble were excellent, and were the means of preventing much rillt and confusion, and lead 11. complete the whole in elos iug the procession by landing Mr. Nanney safely al the Goat Hotel, amidst the acclamations of thou- sands of voices. Thus ended a procession sur- rounded by-people who had the inde}1<!udmll" f f the bvromjh*, and real welfare of their native country sin- cerely tll hunt, aud "hose noble feelings musI ulti mutely prevail against noise and faction. THE DINNER. At 5 o'clock about 120 of Mr. Nanney's friends sat down t., a sumptuous anel excellcnt dinner, served up in Mrs, Hughes's usual -tyle. After the duth was removed the following toasts were given, -the King, 3 times 3-the Queen, and the rest of thO Koval falllilv-the J,ord Lienlenaut of the county—Lord èwhoroogh, 3 times 3-Sir David Erskine, 3 times a-Johll Priestly, Esq. proposed thl health of 0. J. E. Namuy, Esq.

He fell unbounded confidence in the support he had received, and though thwarted for the present by a set of men, who dealt in nothing but political faction and riot, he looked forward without fear of ultimately occupying that seat in the Senate, which the assurance and determined spirit of his friends must place him in, however his gallant opponent may think himself seeure, bolstered up as he is by his darling Uefonn Bill; and he (Mr. Nanney,) begged to assure his friends, that when in Parlia ment, he would defend their rights, and when amongst them, lie would always feel most happy in attending to their wishes and eomlllands- Mr. Nanney sat down amidst loud cheers-G.

[At this time the harmony of the meeting was disturbed by a report of a party of Sir Charles PaqeVs friends, having without rrt.we or provocation made a most unwarrantable attack on the house of Mr. Hichard Carrol, qf the Ship Tavern, Iwakiny llw windows, and (loin olher tfamayc, many of the parties are Anonw.J Rice Thomas, Eq 3 times 3 -Samuel P,i?,tl?y, E?q, 3 ti, -1; i?

John Roberts, Esquire the gentleman who o independently? proposed Major Nannev, 3 times 3.—M I. Rohcrs sahl, that in so doing he took no praise to jmelr; in proposing Major Nannev he did so because he felt his fellow burgesses anti town-men would be most benefitted by having such R man as the gallant Major to support their rights ill t, and having proposed him, the result has ptoved highly gratifiying in the prospect of his soon being seated in Parliament. Henry Turner, Esq. 3 times :3.-Caj)tnill Boileau took the opportunity of mentioning the interest all then present I'ell in the borough being 'shrown al the election of Major Gore, and now he had to congra Inlatc them on Ihe like occasion, and felt they were highly indebted to the gallant Major Nannev, for having so boldly come forward. He l'oncluded by proposing Major Gore and success to him in his dcction, 3 times 3-Mr. Evan Evans, of Pwllheli, a gentleman %i ho li;td so patriotically declared that ho should acritice one years income to support Major Nannty, 31HI upset the pllt\xalloppcrs, a times 3.

(FROM ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT.) On Saturday morning, wnen me court met to open the returns from the deputy returning oilicers of. the contributory bOj\)u¡¡hs, tho Bailiffs of Carnarvon counted each column in each return, and when going over those of Pwllheli, Mr. Hughes, leading apent for Major Nanney, said there was a mistake of two in the last co l umn. IVir. Bailiff Rowland persisted in his number, when Mr. Hughes.observed then Iho rctumillg officer must have returneu the potvvallopers in the column of reghrterefl voters. Yes, he has," answered Mr. Bailiff Rowlands. But surely you do not mean to introduce them in the list of voters. 1 do," said Mr. Rowlands. "Then I protest against it, a8 a monstrous vinlation of that Bill which you call our charter of rights, and I call "pon the Noble Admiral to refuse his sanction to such an attempt to defeat the first principle of the Reform Bill in its very first moment of operation," Sir Charles not making any demonstration of dissent, Mr. Hugheswenlon, Sure am I that the Noble Brother of the gallant Admiral now holding the highnituation-of lA>rd Lieutenant of Ireland would scorn to hrdd a seat under such circumstances, or give for one moment the sanction of his approval to an act so disgraceful, If, lvlr. Bailiffs Row- lands and Davtes, you persist in your determina- tion to receive these votes [here they answered We do," jlhen I shall recommend Major Nannev to,withdm.. from the hustings with his friends, and let the returning officers bolster up Sir Charles' foundered cause by these Gentlemen potwallopers of Pwllheli. A missile wos thrown at Mr. Nanney when chairing, from the shop of Mr, Geo. Evans, and a feUo", related to 11 person bnlding n situa tion in the Corporation, anti some others, made 11 rush from Nortbgate street with the intention of overlnrning the Chair-fortunalcly for themselves the attempt failed.
