COMMUNICATION BETWKRV WALIS AND LONDON BY TUN ft HE AT WESTERN AND EXETER ILILW A YS. A correspondent of the Bristol Journal says, wiih reference to the subject:- I wns very forcibly struck with an advertisement dated from Uphill, relative to the establishment of a regular Sleam Boat to navigate across tbe Bristol Channel from that place to Cardiff, and vice versa; â bo'dinjr out such great and apparent inducements and success, that I was astonished, in this age of specu- lation, all advertisement could be needed to induce even any individual of moderate capital to embark in the project, much more that a public company should not have attempted it. The advantages pointed out by ihe advertiser are the following; â STEAM NAVIGATION FROM CARDIFF TO UPHILL, TO UNITE THE TAFF AND EXETER RAILWAYS. âThe vast population with an unproductive soil, in Wales,âthe fertility of the Somersetshire Coast-â the Market at lli^hbridgeâthe intendek Railway Station nt Uphill â the Passage between Bristol and Cardiff «nd Cardiff and iJridswater reduced to two hoursâthe demand for such accommodation by the Population of South Wales and Somersetshireâand 'he establishing1 hereafter of a general Carrying Trade throughout the Channel-nfford almost cer- tain success to the undertaking." Now, sir, it is evident that these advantages will arNe, of which I have not the slightest doubt that they will by the Union of the TafFund Exeter Rail- ways, what must be the immense benefit which will accrue to the traffic on the line of communication already established between the Exeter and Great Western Railways! In addition, sir, to what is above enumerated, there cannot be the slightest doubt, that all the vast teeming population of South Wales, in Breconshire, Glamorganshire, and Mon- mouthshire, will make this their regular route to Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham, Leamington, and Lon- don, and all the intermediate towns. Let us only for one moment calculate the time it would take the Welshman to travel from Cardiff to London. According to the advertisement the pas- sage from Cardiff 10 Bristol would be reduced 10 two hours and the jouruey from Bristol to London by the C,, eat Western Railway is now performed in four âso that fix hours only would be the time required lo reach London from Cardiff' provided rct/ular Steamers were established between Cardiff and Uphill.
