Our readers are aware that the Bill relating to Turnpike Trusts which is to be introduced is founded on the report of the Commissioners, and will provide for the consolidation of the several trusts in each county. Such a measure, fairly carried out, would no doubt be an improvement on the present wretched system but we should be still surrounded by gates and we cannot conceal from ourselves the fact that gates at which a high toll is demanded of a primitive peasantry, suffering frotn the general want of skill and capital in the country, are likely to be considered a grievance for the removal of which no better plan may possibly suggest itself than that which Rebecca discovered. For our own part, we are disposed to think that a rate would be better than tolls-especially if, according to the Scotch system, the rate fell exclusively on the owners of the land instead of its occupiers. One cannot, however, expect that here. We believe Mr. Vivian, the member for Swansea, has published a pamphlet bearing either immediately or remotely on the subject of tolls in South Wales; and we shall be glad to find on the perusal of it, which we promise our- selves, that there is any agreement of views between the hon. gentleman and ourselves.
