Samuel Roberts and his Plea for a Vote.
Tho author of tho following spirited plead
ing for a voto, in a memorial printed in Wales,
May, 1850, addressed to Lord John Russell, is
now a resident of tho Unitod States, of a land
whore a man, pour or rich, has a vote. When
the proper time cornea for hita to be admitted
to tho lrnncriiao of a freeman, wo trust ho will
be one of tho effective mou of our ojuntry, in
counsel and in notion. IIo ia a bold thinker,
and a writer of no common power. IIo preaches
to-morrow, in Welsh, at the Welsh Congrega
tional Church, on Lawrence-street, near Third
street. V.'e trust ho will speak in English bo
fore he leaves the city: '
Mv Lord: lama in; not, it Is true, a very
big man, but am of a respectable size ratber

lived in this far-famed country of ours for half
a contury, and have always been loyal, strictly
loyal, zealously loynl, consistently and con
scientiously loyal, out Jane no vote; and I now
thus respectfully wrlto to beg of yoa to get
and yic mc a vote. I havo tried, in every
conceivable way, for full fifty yeors to gain a
vote, but have never succeeded. ' I learned to
road, write and cypher, aud throw quoits, and
play bat, and hunt' pquirrols, and most other
school gnmcs, when quite a boy, but nctir had
a vote. I learned numeration and multiplica
tion, and pounds, shillings and pence tables,
and avoirdupois weight nod troy woight, and
long weasuro and land moasure, and measures
of oapacity and solidity, and the divisions of
times and of circled, but wevnr had vofc I

and partnorship, and vulgar fractions, and po

and cube-root and duodecimals, aud all tho.
rules of mental Arithmetic, but uet'er had it
vote. ,
Nay, more, I went repeatedly over tho
Ajsob' Bridgo without onco stumbling, and
could once utidcrstnnd tho solution of "adfoctcd
quadratic equations," but newrWa vote. I
uovor Btole anything excepting a penny bun,
once, fioiu an uld wouia.u who bad brought a
bufikot-full'of such things for Bala on a holiday
to the very door of my father's ohapol. I was
then three years three weeks old. My father
preached mo a long, illu norm on on tho
occasion, from tho Eighth Cotumandmont,and
made n t.iko tbo buu back to the old woman
and ask ber pardon, and kept me in the prison
of tii study -cell for six hours, and gave uie a
slight taste of tho virtue of the birch twigs
presorvod over the mantle-piece, at the close of
the term of my imprisonment, and be nnisticu
that service by a short prayer, as beautifully
appropriate and affeoting as any prayer over
pennnl by an Arch Bishop, I reoollcst the
bubstanco of that prayer even to this iy. I
never stoic anything sinco, and yot .TWeiirixr
had a vote, I whUtled after the plough on the
mountain side, and after the sheep oa the
mountain top for months and for jear, but
ii a f had a vuh. I tilted the ecytho and the
sickle through tho hottest days of the harvest
season, and nourished tho bill hook and the
nmttock in tho depth of winter, but nctw hud
n voto. I paw tho sun ri.o from beyond tho
Wreckin on many a Juno morning, whonl was
on tbe tup of Pully warthol, fetching turf-fuel
for my mother; and 1 saw the sun setting over
tho buck of Cader Idris on many a July eve
ning, when pntting the yearlings to slcop on
tbe top of Moelyrbyrddod, but never hud

1 spoke, siuco I am in the ministry, a vast
number of speeches of all kinds, good, bad
and indifferent; and I wrote n great deal
proso and of poetry, and published books on
various subjects; uud obtained prizes at sev
eral bright eongrejoos of bards aud essayists,
in fpito of njirini Ceoiiim graduiten anil
Freshmen, but never had a vote. I then un
dertook tho ed i totahip of a magazine, iu which
I boldly write away, moiith ul'tcr month, ob
servations and eommeuta ou the measures
nml movements of monarchs find their niin
istora, of governors ond t'affirs, of popes and
cardinals, of councils and colleges, und
iicld-amrslinls aud their glory, but inner
a ride. I do, certainly, try to write
( utk, and that inny bo oneof tho reasons -why
I hnvotircr had a vote. 1 pay a considerable

just to say that yoa need take no further

of
: The "sntnnier has pasned;"
but the mournful whistling of the wind is tho
only indication we havo of tho near approach
of "ye melancholy dnys," for 11 nature woars
tno gam of siirtns;. So great has been tne
ohnnge wrought by the gouia! rains of the past
umntn.upon too (trowing' crops, that one can
scarce beliove bis eyes. The pastures presont a
tine appearance, and wo will havo corn and
potatoes, if Jack Frost only delays bis visit a
few weeks hsnco. But I guess the lc!9 I my
ahnnt the crops the bftttnr, for the editor of tho
London Dew crat, in his next issue nfter the
appearance uf my last letter, took exceptions
to iu y artiele on the crops, and very unkindly
alluded to ino as a "oorncd correspondent."
But the editor in a man of family, find probably
does not like to hear his friend, tho corn,
spoken of as likely to fail.

continuing three dnys. Extensivo prepara
tions ore being made, and it in intended to
have a display of niii-mtir'o, which will do
credit to tho famous Btoclc-raising county of
juiuliBoii. uver one thousand dollars is to
be pnid iu premiums. All tho members of
the Pirn fumily, who are foud of seeing fino
cattle, fast horses, big grunters, gallant young
men, and pretty women, nro expected to bo
on hand. A line exhibition and a good timo
will undoubtedly bo had. Homo lime during
tho Fair there will bo a wrosllo fur ten ecu Is,
best three iu livo, between one of our editors
and a young lawyer of this pluee, a member
of tho'F. F.'aof tho county. This is a fea
ture uot announced "iu tho billx," but I nm
assured by my friend, James B , that it
will come off.
The Methodist Conference, which insets at
Columbus this woek, will romovo from our
midst a xentleman, who, by his general deport
merit ana good works, bus proved himself em
inently worthy tho title of a Christian. I ro
for to tbo Rov. S. Tippett. During his so
journ w ith u.i, he has been the means of adding
many to the Church, and it was oiitoUy through
his efl'uilri that the movement for building a
new church edifico iu this place was successful.
Ho is a young man of talont, and is destined
to bo the means of doing much good ia his
Mastor's cause. All regret his departure, and
join in the wi'h that his "lines may bo drawn
in pleasant places."
The pulitioal campaign hns boon opened in
this oounty. Tho "unterrlfiod" held a council
hero nu Saturday last, and woro addressed by
Senator l'ugh, and others. Mr. Dennison will
address the Opposition, at this placo, on noxt
Saturday, at which timo a county ticket will
be formed by that party.
Tho rim for tho county offices bids fair to
eclipso the famous Camp town Races, ns nny
number of good men nnuounco themselves
willing to serve their country. It. llutcho
son, a young lawyer of this place, and a Dem
ocrat, nas announced lumsult ns un uido
pendout candidate lor the Legislature. Mr.
H. is a man of somo talent, and stands high
among his fellow-citizens, (about six i'ect,)
and ia well calculated for tnll running.
Tho public schools of this place -were
nnoncd on Monday last, with Mr. John D.
Sline as Principal, assisted by an able corps
of teachers. From lay vriuduw3 I could see
tho groups of children as they wended their
way toward Science Hill, tho location of Hie
Union ticliool liuil'line;. I'linciiuuintcil with
tho cold world, and strangers to disappointed
hopes, tao bngut ncones wnicn at up then'
countenances, indicated iliac tuey were
hnppy indeed,
'lhis place is blessed with good schools, and
they uro woll attended. One great fault of
parents ot tho presont day is, that they heap
too inuth responsibility upon teachers, and
labor under the imprepsion that the school
room i.i tin- r.laco vhoio characters must bo
