Mr CLOUGH, the Conservative agent for the Cockermouth division, has handed to
us the following statement as the result of the recent revision of the
Parliamentary register:-

Cons. Radicals
Owners' occupiers' and lodgers' claims 261 240
Less Owners' and Occupiers' already
on this year's register 186 151
___ ___
75 89
Disallowed in Revision Court 10 32
___ ___
65 57
Conservative majority 8
___ ___
65 65

The deductions made for voters on the present register simply means that
claims have been made for them on account of removals, or, for owners who also
appear on the occupiers' list, whereby the new register is not affected. Anyone
wishing to see the lists can do so at the offices at Workington.
