The nomination for North Belfast took place yesterday. Six papers containing the names of Sir John Preston, Sir William Quartus Ewart, and Mr. Thomas M'Cormick (secretary of the Grand Orange Lodge of Belfast) were handed in nominating Sir Edward James Harland (C.). No other candidate having been proposed, Sir E. Harland was declared duly elected. The new member, who is the head of the shipbuilding firm of Harland and Wolff, was Mayor of Belfast in 1884 and 1885. His return does not affect the balance of parties, the late Sir W. Ewart having been a Conservative.
