SEVERN AND WYE RAILWAY. The Purchase by the Midland and Great Western. Although it is stated (says the Bristol Mercury) that the terms upon which the Severn and Wye Railway is to be purchased by the Midland and Great Western have been finally settled, and some local shareholders in the Severn and Wye are already rejoicing at the prospect of such a momentous change, we have authority for saying that the arrangement is by no means so advanced or so complete as seems to be generally supposed out of doors. As a matter of fact, certain negotiations have not been concluded, and, though there is at present no hitch of a serious character, matters have not yet proceeded far enough to enable the two great companies to seal the agreement. Whilst this does not mean that some difficulty at the last moment is likely to upset the contemplated sale of the Severn and Wye, at the same time the significant fact that the agreement is not scaled is one which too sanguine shareholders may do well to bear in mind. The price to be paid for the railway has been fixed at £ 477,300, for which sum the purchasing companies will acquire an undertaking upon which £951,349 capital has been expended.
