NEATH. VALE OF NEATH RAI LWAY.-Notwitlistan din- the de- pression of trade in general, and the depreciation of railway property in particular, which we trust is only temporary, it is gratifying to state that we have occasional indications of progress and vigour in connexion with some of the impor- tant lines of our own immediate district, amongst which the Vale of Neath line occupies the foremost position. On Monday last the necessary documents relating to contract No. 4 of the line were executed. This includes a portion of the Aberdare tunnel, and we understand that the contractor, Mr. Edwards, of Birmingham, purposes proceeding with the works as early as circumstances can permit.
