THE QUARTER SESSIONS AT WREXHAM— I OUR MEMBERS. j To the Editor of the Denbighyliire"Advertiser. Sir-The Mayor having called a meeting of the in- habitants of Wrexham in the Guildhall, for the purpose of giving them an opportunity of expressing themselves on the attempt made, and about to be made to withdraw from Wrexham the Quarter Sessions (so lately restored to us) I gladly availed myself of the privilege of attend- ing the meeting with the view, I must confess, of saying a few words on the occasion, but notwithstanding the affable and agreeable manner in which his Worship in- vited all or any person present to speak to the motions brought forward, I could not screw my courage to the sticking point and boldly come forward and say my say." Perhaps it was, that the various speakers had grap- pled with the subject in so masterly a manner and so ex- hausted it as to leave me nothing to add—very likely. Never was anything more clearly demonstrated than that the neighbourhood of Wrexham is the most import- ant part of the county of Denbigh, and that it is cquit- able and right that a fair share of the county business should be transacted amongst the population where such business principally originates. The various speakers stuck so closely to tacts and figures, and handled the sub- ject with such good temper and judgment, that I found myself quite drawn away from my origmal intention, which was to move a vote of censure on Mr Mainwar- ing, our Borough member, for his neglect in not advo- cating the rights and claims of this, the PRINCIPAL borough which he represents, when he had such a good opportunity the other day in Wrexham. This is not a Whig and Tory question no humbug of that sort. I like men to represent us like Sir Watkin and Col. Bid- dulph, who will not leave a stone unturned, and spare themselves no labour to obtain for us that which they consider our just rights. Our borough member has no identity of interests with us, neither does he care to ad- vocate our just rights, of which I trust the electors will make a note. I was in hopes, when Mr Bury proposed a vote of thanks to Col. Biddulph, Sir Watkin and the other magistrates for their exertions in obtaining a ses- sions to be held here, that he would have taken the op- portunity of shewing up Mr Mainwaring's conduct to his Wrexham constituents,—but no. I suppose he too, like the rest, was overcome with the good humour of the meeting. There was no room for hard words, and after proposing thanks to the county members, he merely ad- ded that he was sorry he could not add the name of Mr Mainwaring." This may be a polite way of intimat- ing to our M.P. for the boroughs that we have nothing to thank him for; but I should like to have said it loud and strong, only as 1 said before, I could not screw my cour- age up. I always content myself, however" with the thought that I can write to your paper when I want to unburden. I will thank you not to curtail this epistle, as you have done some others of mine. I also wish to add that there seems to be a facility now of calling a meeting in the town which did not exist formerly, presi- I ded over and conducted in sucn a manner as leaves nothing to desire. Our interests are not likely to be neglected when we can muster the men of intelligence who assembled on Tuesday last at the Guildhall, to as- sert their views on what they considered the rights of the neighbourhood, and I hope for the honour of the old town we shall keep up the respectability of our new corporate body. Yours, &c., I Nov. 4, 1848. FIZGIG.
