HAVERFORDWEST. The Hon. Thomas L. James, ex-Postmaster General of the United States. In his accounts of his visit to Wales which appeared in an American paper, speaking of the future of Haverfordwest, states â"The question naturally arises whether this old town is to remain at a standstill or will it take a new lease of life and commence a career of greatness without a paralled in its history. To this I answer that its future seems assured. The revival in the past few years of the old Welsh spirit, the unity of purpose with which the members of Paliament from Wales, whether Liberals or Conservatives, press the claims of their constituents upon the Government, give gratifying proof that the future is full of promise for the 'land of our fathers.' There are no more earnest, fearless, and eloquent champions of Wales in Parliament than Admiral Mayne, Sir John H. Puleston. D. A. Thomas, and Alfred Thomasâthe first two leading Conservatives, the last two prominent Liberals. On matters concerning Wales, partisanship is ignoredâthey are Welshmen. The effect of this union will not only aid the cause of higher education, but develop the commerce and industries of the principal cities. It is not unlikely that a line of Amencan steamers will shortly arrive and depart from Milford Haven, the finest and most neglected port in the United Kingdom. As Haverfordwest is only four miles from Milford Haven, the establishment of this steamship line will "ive such an llllpeuB to the trade and commerce of the town as has never, with the single exception of Cardifl, been known in Wales. It will not, then, be long before Haverfordwest will absorb Milford and become a modern city with 250,000 inhabitants. It will be the home of vast industries, the seat of a mighty commerce with every part of the planet, and the stopping-place between New York and London. The Fctnbrohe- tfhirc Herald will become a Metropolitan daily journal, rivalling the Limr/tool Mcrcury or the 'Cardiff' News or Western Mail of to-day. A new and convenient hotel will of course take the place of the inn.'
