TO THE ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, ALLOW me very cordially to thank you J'A- for having a second time elected me your Representative in Parliament, and it is indeed a source of the deepest gratification to find that my services during the past two years have thus been so satisfactorily rewarded. Many questions of great and lasting importance will shortly engage the attention of the new Par- liament, and I shall be prepared to give my inde- pendent support to measures alone, which, in my judgment, will prove most conducive to the continued prosperity of the nation at large, provided those measures will not in any way prejudicially affect your local interests. Again thanking you for your kindness, I remain, Gentlemen, Your most obliged And grateful Servant, HOWEL GWYN. Dyffiryn, Neath, November 25th, 1868. [1182 TO THE LIBERAL ELECTORS OF THE BOROUGH OF BRECON AND TOWN OF LLYWEL. GENTLEMEN, I BEG- to thank the large majority of Liberal Electors who promised me their votes during my canvass. At a very early stage of the contest I saw it was to be one of the screw" and the purse, and this fact determined me more than anything else to retire and leave the field to the two competitors. I am convinced if a thorough sound Liberal candi- date of fixed principles had been brought forward at the proper time, supported by the whole Liberal party, not even the persuasive arguments of the Man in the Moon" could have prevented his being returned triumphantly. Let us, however, in the future, organise and educate our party, so that we may neither have to apply the spur" to our candidate—be under the pressure of the "screw"—nor the influence of the money-bags. In all probability the Electors will shortly have the protection of the Ballot, and I hereby renew the pledge already given to many of my friends, to contest the next Election for Brecon against all comers, when the Electors are left to their own free choice and selection. Yours, ever faithfully, ALFRED A. WALTON. Brecon, Nov. 30th, 1868. [1190 BRECONSHIRE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.

These Pills are compounded from the recipe of one of the most eminent physicians of the present day (who, from purely philanthropic motives-knowing their excellent properties from experience—has been induced to give the benefit of them to the public at large). They are prepared by an able and experi- enced chemist, and are acknowledged, by the faculty, to be the most valuable medicine for all disorders of the stomach and derangements of the liver ever prepared. It is a well-known fact that most of the diseases incident to the human race arise from a disordered stomach, and an irregular state of the bowels, and for want of a suitable remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple maladies become serious illnesses To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the blessings of health, these pills are confidently and earnestly recommended. They act generally on the constitution, cleanse the blood of all impurities; regulate the secretions, aad give tone to the stomach; correct the morbid con- dition of the IWer, regulate the bowels, and, by, removing all impediments,, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame. Sold in ooxes (with directions for use) Is. lid. and 7i d. each (a saving by taking the larger size). Sold Wholesale by Messrs. Barclay and Son, London, and Retail by all Medicine Vendors.

Being a purely vegetable preparation, they may be taken at any time by either sex without fear of danger.
