VALUABLE FREEHOLD ESTATE, COAL MINES, AND OTHER MINERALS, In the County of CARMARTHEN, for Investment or Occupation. Mr GEORGE ROBINS, IS INSTRUCTED 1to Sell fcg nttction, On THURSDAY, JULY 27, at Twelve o'Clock, at the AUCTION M\RT, in LONDON, rpHE Valuable FREEHOLD ESTATE of TRIM- t SARAN, within three miles of the Sea, and four miles of the Market Towns and SEAPORTS of KIDWELLY and LLANELLY, and twelve miles from Carmarthen, with which town it communicates by water. consisting of about 700 ACRES of EXCELLENT PASTURE, ARABLE, and WOOD LAND, the surface alone producing above £700 per annum ex- clusive of the Annual produce from the Woods. The MINERALS consist of COAL, IRON, STONE, FIRE-BIIICK CLAY, and building stone, and EXTEND UNDER THE WHOLE PROPERTY, 700 ACRES. The minerals under about 200 Acres besides of adjoining land are secured to the Proprietor of this Estate by Leases. The Coal, Iron, and Fire Clay are to an almost ex- baustless extent; the Coal under the whole has been computed to he twenty millions of tons; the Colliery communicates by Canals with THREE DIFFERENT HARBOURS, within four, five, and six miles distance, is worked and workable for ages by level and water balance, without steam-engines. anù consequently, free from the injurious stoppages to which Collieries, worked by machinery, are liable. The Coal is of that valuable kind called ANTRACITE, or STONE COAL, ver, strong, burns without smoke, and is in demand for steam and locomotive engines. Antracite is considered stronger than ordinary coal by 25 per cent, and more, and is coming into great use in AMERICA for ST HAM NAVIGATION and HOUSE- HOLD USE. The NEW RIVER COMPANY in LONDON have used it these three years It may be here remarked that the important discoveries and improvements in the manufacture of Iron by the at)- plication of Antracite, instead of the bituminous Coal, i itherto invariably used for this purpose, renders this property one of extreme value, and which twelve months since could not have been attached to it. The large extent of the Mineral tract embracing ANTRACITE, OR STONE COAL, with Iron-stone: and the advantages which the property possesses from its locality to ports of shipment, hold out stroiu inducements for the SUCCESSFUL ESTABLISHMENT of IRON WORKS on the MOST EXTENSIVE SCALE in the UNITED KINGDOM, and, therefore, viewed alone in that light as holding out the prospect of a HANDSOME FORTUNE being REALISED at an EARLY PERIOD, The profitable sale is now about 20 000 TONS A YEAR. WHICH BY EXERTION MAY BE DOUBLED. The works, canals, and railways are complete, and the cost of the coal will be diminished by an increased sale. There is an excellent F:\MILY RESIDENCE, with suitable offices, and extensive stabling, farm, and out- buildings. The situation is beautiful, commanding very extensive views ore." sea and land; is altogether a most desirable property, either for investment or residence. The colliery is not, nor ever will be, an annoyance to the house or grounds. The estate is well timbered. It is to he submitted to POSITIVE SALE, and WITHOUT a LIMIT.

ROBERT BYERS, Honorary Secretary. TO THE (d-EiRll TIRV, CLERDY, FREEHOLDERS, AND ELECTORS OF THE » COUNTY OF MONMOUTH. GENTLEMEN, ——— IN consequence of the lamented Decease of his late Majesty, the Dissolution of the present Parliament is immediately to take place. Permit me, therefore, to solicit a renewal of your confidence, by again electing me to the distinguished and honor- able situation of your Representative. My public conduct has been before you for up- wards of twenty-one years of political connection with you. It has been my endeavoor, during that period, to discharge the trust reposed in me, faithfully and zealously, and, I trust, you have never found me sparing of exertion nor attention whenever your Interests have been concerned. If you again honor me with your support, be assured that no efforts shall be wanting on my part, to perform efficiently the duties thus again required of me; and a constant attention to all matters con- nected with your local prosperity, and an anxious desire to promote the welfare of the country in general, shall ever evince my grateful sense of the honor which you will confer on me, by re-electing me your Representative in Parliament. i have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your most obedient, humble Servant, GRANVILLE CHARLES HENRY SOMERSET. London, July loth, 837. TO THE a z iiN co & OF THE UNITED BOROUGHS OF MONMOUTH, MJlWSPOiaif1 JUMeD UJfD GENTLEMEN, ——— THE melancholy loss which the nation has sustained by the death of our late lamented Sovereign, will, in a short period, cause you to be called upon to exercise your elective franchise. It is not, therefore, premature in me again to solicit the honour of your suffrages, which I do upon the same principles that I have hitherto done, namely, an ardent attachment to the Constitution of our common country, and a firm determination to aid, by every means in my power, in maintaining inviolate the rights and privileges of the three estates of the Realm. To the adoption of measures involving organic changes in this happy system, 1 am decidedly opposed. The separation of Church from the State, the aliena- lion of Ecclesiastical Property, the abolition of the House of Peers, or any fundamental change in the Constitution of that branch of the Legislature, the Ballot, and Universal Suffrage, I conceive to be measures that would be totally subversive of the best interests of the community, that would tend to the annihilation of all national prosperity, and as such, they will find in me an earnest and active opponent. But, whilst I deprecate the visionary and theoretical views with which some are dazzled, and the evil and dishonest motives by which others arc actuated, T am not blind to the fact that there exist in some of our Institutions defects and abuses which call urgently for the consideration of the Legislature: of the real and practical reform of these I shall ever be found a zealous supporter, when the remedy proposed is based not merely on expediency, but also on integrity and justice. I take this opportunity of again returning you my warmest thanks for the kind promises of support which 1 received from you on my last Canvass, and, at the same time, of assuring you that should I receive the high honour of being elected your Representative, no exertion shall be spared, on my part, to merit the confidence reposed in me. I remain, Gentlemen, Your faithful and obliged Servant, JOSEPH BAILEY, Jun. G lanusk Park, 29th June, IS37. TO THE &!1J (f) CD!13 OF THE UNITED BOROUGHS OF MONMOUTH, NEWPORT, AND USK. MY FRIENDS AND COUNTRYMEN! IT is no longer doubtful that Parliament will be dissolved at an early day. Obedieut, therefore, to the pressing call that has been made upon me, I at once announce myself as a Candidate for the high honour of representing you in the new House of Commons. Within the last few months I have given you a full exposition of my political opinions. With greater truth, I hope, than Westminster's regenade Baronet, I can affirm that" I am not changed!" What I was when first invited by you to maintain the supremacy of liberal principles in these Boroughs, I am still, and with God's good grace so will I con- tinue to my dying hour. Supporters of the cause I advocate, rally round your leader! Be firm, active, vigilant? Be seduced by no promise-be intimidated by no threat! Ours Is a cause which demands from you the exercise of Spartan virtue. Remember that you are fighting against a Tory faction, who opposed all Reform untii they could no longer do so with impunity; and who now, under the specious name of Conservatives, set their faces against any further improvement in the laws and institutions of the country. From every change, however much for the benefit of the people, these bugbears of the State predict annihilation to the Church or to the Monarchy; some of them acting upon the wily system of the Tamworth Sophist, will occasionally, for electioneering purposes, pretend to admit he existence of abuses which ought to be reformed; but propose to them a practical remedy, and you will be denounced as a Revolutionist. This word Revolution is ever on their lips, As an object of hatred and abhorrence, though they well know that to one "Glorious Revolution" we owe our present amiable and accomplished Queen. Electors! the palmy days of Toryism must be imprinted on your memories in characters of fire. Call to mind the long years of oppression and misrule —the jobs, places, and pensions—the bloody and ruinous WARE the horrid spies—the imputed treasons and the civil massacres-the gigantic accumulation of the public debt, and the taxes wrung from the very vitals of an oppressed and starving people. Do you wish to see a revival of this self-called qlorious (!) domination? Are you willing that another Castle. reagh shall be permitted to suspend the laws which protect you from illegal incarceration, and another Canning to launch the arrows of his malignant and unfeeling wit against the suffering victims of the Prison House! Let your reply be a Vote for him who now subscribes himself, with unfeigned gratitude, Your very obliged and faithful Friend and Servant, REGINALD J. BLEWITT. Llantarnara Abbey, June 30thi 1837. TO THE GENTRY, CLERGY, AND OTHER ELECTORS OF THE COUNTY OP CAR M A RTHEIN. GENTLEMEN, THE lamented death of our late beloved King has rendered a Dissolution of Parliament necessary, and there is every appearance that such an event will take place within a short period. It becomes therefore my duty to state, that it is my intention, whenever the time comes, to offer my Services again to von, as one of your Represen- tatives in the House of Commons, 1 need not (having had so longa connexion with you) enter at this moment into any detail of my Political Princi- ples,-they must be well known to yon. And it is, believe me, a source of sincere gratification, when I reflect that they have on many former occasions procured for me, at your hands, so cordial and efficient a support. To those principles I mean most scrupulously to adhere, as I am convinced they alone are capable of guiding this great Country through the dangers which have for some time past so seriously threat- ened it. I shall shortly leave London for our County, when I shall take an early opportunity of paying my respects to you in person. I am, Gentlemen, Your most obliged And faithful Servant, GEO. RICE TREVOR. Stratton Street, July 1st, 1837. TO IEiys(SISI@IB^ OF CARDIFF, COWBRIDGE, AND LLANTRISSENT. GENTLEMEN, THE Dissolution of Parliament which the Demise -*• of the Crown renders inevitable, will probably take place very shortly, In respectfully soliciting a renewal of that con- fidence which you have expressed by thrice electing me your Representative, I refer to my past conduct as a proof that I am inspnsible neither of the honour nor of the duty of the trast; and I beg to assure you, that the same principles and sentiments which have hitherto been my governing motives, will continue to actuate my future cocrse, should you honour me by again confiding your interests to my charge. I am, Gentlemen, With great gratitude atid r, Your most obliged and faithful Servant, JOHN N1CHOLL. 33, Belgrave Square, 5th July, 1937. TO THE 22 W (a GENTRY AND FREEHOLDERS, OF THE County of Glamorgan. GENTLEMEN, ——— I BEG lo apprize you that the Magistrates, assem- bled at the Neath Quarter Sessions, considered it essential, that an additional CORONER for the County should be appointed, and that the Parishes of Mertbvr, Gellvgare, Aberdare, Lanwonno and Ystrad- yfodwg, including the Hamlet of Rbigos, should be the District for which he should especially act. and in which he should reside; and they directed the the necessary measures to be taken accordingly, to obtain an additional Coroner duly appointed. Being a resident in Merthyr, the central Town of the District and in other respects well qualified to discharge efficiently the duties of that important office, I hope for the honour of your Votes and sup- port in my behalf at the Election, which will shortly take place. It is considered, and I think properly so, that all public offices in Wales should be filled by persons well acquainted with the Welsh Language. I am happy to say, that I am very well acquainted with that Language; for without knowing it, I should consider myself unfit for an office, more peculiarly exercised in respect of accidents happening to the working classes of the iron and coal works, who, with few exceptions, converse in the Welsh Language exclusively. When the day of Election will have been fixed, I will give the earliest notice of the time, that my Friends, and those Gentlemen who have so kindly and warmly honored me with their support, may be enabled to attend with the least possible inconvenience to themselves. I again beg to return my most grateful thanks for the support 1 have received, and which, I can truly say, gives me every prospect of success. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Your most obedient humble servant, WM. DAVIES. Merthyr, June 30th, IS37. TO THE [ftfMUTY, CLERr7V, (HEMTOY, AND FREEHOLDERS Of THE County of Glamorgan. MY LORDS AND GENTLEMEN, T ADDRESSED you on the 1st and 3rd of April last, soliciting" the favour of your Voles for tbe CORONERSHIP for the Eastern Division of this County since which, the Lord Chancellor has been petitioned to appoint an additional Coroner for the district, including Merthyr, Aberdare, Gellygaer, Lan. wonno, Ystradavodog and Rbigos; and I again beg to offer myself as a Candidate for the appointment, being an I nhabitant of Merthyr aBd a member of the Legal Profession, and possessing the qualifications necessary for such a responsible and important office. My opponent says, one qualification for the Coro. nersliip is a complete knowledge of the Welsh lan- guage. Now, while I have no doubt I shall be fully qualified in this respect, as my profession rendered it prudent for me to become acquainted with the Welsh language, and I have given my attention to it pre vious to the vacancv for tbe Coronership, and I feel fully satisfied I have acquired a competent knowledge; but I deny that even this is really necessary. The Judges, the Magistrates, the Barristers, and all the Coroners throughout Wales, conduct all their pro. ceedings in English, and na ill WeM: nor is such a qualification in the least necessary for the ends of jus. tice, or for the people, as most of them, in Merthyr, converse freely in English. Such a statement can only weigh with such as would vote from prejudice, and is only made for that purpose. As my qualifications remain unquestioned, allow me again humbly to solicit the favor of your Votes at the approaching Election. I have the honor to be, With great respect, Your very obedient humble servant, JAMES WARD RUSSELL, Solicitor, Mertbyr Tidfil, 7tb July, 1887. Glamorganshire Cirrgtj (th;tritD.
