THIS important Line, the only one having for its object the direct communication between South Wales, Birming- ham, the Midland Counties, Liverpool, Manchester, and the North, will commetrce at Hereford, and passing to the Vale of the Severn via Bewdley, Bridgnorth, Broseley, Iron Bridge, Colebrooke Dale, take a direct route through or near Wellington, and Market Drayton to Crewe, or to Runcorn, whence the existing Lines will continue the 'u" traffic to Liverpool, Manchester, and the North. At Bewdley there will be a branch Line through Kidderminster to Birmingham and the Midland Counties. Reference to the Map will show that three projected Railways converge at Hereford, viz — The South Wales Line from the coast, at Newport, via Monmouth the Bristol and Liverpool Junction from Bristol, over the Severn; and the Great Eastern and Western from Swansea, by way of Merthyr and Abergavenny. This grand trunk will, therefore, connect with the North and Central portions of the kingdom, by the nearest practicable route, Bristol, the West of England, and the whole of South Wales, containing a vast population, and extensive Iron, Copper, Tin Plate, and Coal Works, numerous and important Ports, including Milford Haven, and the Government Dock Yard, and concentrate to itself the great Passenger and Goods traffic now conveyed by circuitous routes to and fro. This Line, too, will unite the Iron Districts of South Wales with those of Staffordshire and Shropshire. Apart from the ordinary incentives to travelling, the beautiful scenery of South Wales and the various Watering Places will add considerably to the Passenger traffic on this line. «. A more than usual revenue may be calculated upon in Goods traffic, arising from the extensive connection existing between South Wales and the Important termini, conveying, as this communication will, the various productions of Iron, Copper, Coal, Tin Plates, &c., to the North, and Woollens, Cottons, Salt, Hardware, Pottery Ware, Cattle, and Agricultural Produce, required for the several counties, districts, and towns, accommodated by this line, westward with the advantage of delivery in a few hours, free t'om the risks and delays of a sea voyage, and at one third the distance. The conveyance of Coals to the counties through which these Lines run, will also be a means of considerable and increasing revenue; whilst the supplies to the barren districts of the Iron Works of Agricultural Produce, will add to the profit, as well as unite by ties of mutual interest the Agricultural and Commercial community. By means of this projection, portions of the kingdom not so provided by any other scheme, will participate in advantages of Railway communication and it will also form hereafter, with other railways about to be commenced, the nearest route to London for a very extensive portion of the country. Founded on the principle of direct and comprehensive communication with distant parts of the kingdom, this Line will be the most complete in the Empire, and, carried as it can and will be, in almost a straight line, must thus secure itself for the future against the competition of any rival projection. At the same time every regard has been had to local accommodation, and the closest scrutiny will convince those who know the wants and requirements of the towns and districts embraced within its scope, that this has been most amply provided for. Until an Act of Parliament shall be obtained, the affairs of the Company shall be under the management and control of the Committee of Management, who are hereby empowered to enter into such arrangements as shall best serve the interests of this Company and the Public, with existing or projected Companies and to raise addi- tional Capital, if required, to extend this Line; and also to nominate the first Directors of the Com; any. Should the Commission now sitting not disturb the guage of the South Wales Railway Bill passed this Session, it is intended to adopt the wide guage, to avoid the inconvenience of different guages. Power will be taken under the Act to limit the responsibility of Shareholders to the amount of their subscription, and to allow four per cent, interest on the calls. The Line presents no engineering difficulties and as the Landholders (having been canvassed) are favorable to the Line, a return, equal to any Railway in the Kingdom, may be relied on from the outlay. Preference in the allotment of Shares will be given to those locally interested, and to the Shareholders of Lines in connection with this, the Grand Junction, South Wales, &c. The Parliamentary Contract and Subscribers' Agreement will be ready 'or S1gttature on payment of the deposits. No applications for Shares can in any case be attended to, unless reference be made to one of the Provisional Committee, the Solicitors, Bankers, or Brokers of the Company, viz. Messrs.

THIS line, which, subject to the decision of the guage JL commissioners, will be constructed on the broad- guage principle, will commence at the Worcester station of the Great Eastern and Western Railway, and, pro- ceeding by Redditch and Henley-in-Arden, will touch Warwick and Leamington and end at Rugby, the terminus of the Midland Counties Railway, and of the proposed Rugby and Huntingdon Junction Railway. It will communicate with Droitwich, Studley, Alcester, and Stratford-on Avon. At Warwick it will unite with the Birmingham and Oxford Junction Railway, the Warwick and Cheltenham Railway, and the London, Warwick, Leamington, and Kidderminster Railway; and at Rugby with the London and Birmingham, the Midland counties, and the projected Rugby and Huntingdon Junction Railways. The country through which it will pass is thickly popu- lated and of the richest description. It presents no engineering difficulties, and from its population, its manufactures, and agricultural produce, it possesses sources of such abundant traffic as to render it highly remunerative to the capitalists. The object proposed is to complete the line of railway communication between the western midland, and eastern portions of the kingdom; and a glance at the map of England will show that this will be effected in the most direct manner by the present line, touching, as it will at one of its termini, a railway running direct from Swansea to Worcester, and at the other, the projected line from Rugby to Huntingdon—from which point a railway com- munication has been already provided. By means of this railway, the manufactures of all the towns and the agricultural produce of the country con- tained within its range, as well as the ports on the eastern and north-eastern coast, will have opened to them a direct and unbroken communication with the great and densely populated mineral fields of South Wales, as well as the markets of the northern portion of the principality. To the population along the line, as well as to the midland and northern portions of the kingdom, this uu- dertaking will present the most direct communication with those towns of fashionable resort—Leamington and Cheltenham. To the inhabitants of Leamington and Warwick it will open the most direct communication With the city of Worcester and South Wales whilst to the inhabitants of Worcester it will open the markets of the eastern portions of the country. The shareholders in the several railways proposed to be joined or intersected will have a preference in tht allotment of shares in this undertaking. No person will be liable for more than his deposit til! the act is obtained, and power will be applied for to allow interest. a per centum on all calls from the time o: I their respective payments, and to limit the liability of the shareholders to the amount of their subscriptions.

foreign Intelligence. FRANCE-—The French journals of Saturday, remark upon the late occurrences at Madrid as proving the discontent of the people to have arisen from a reckless- ness of character which threatens repetitions of the same scenes so long as the present ministers remain in office. The National says that it is impossible to depend upon any account from Madrid, as the liberal journals dare not speak out, and private letters are all read, and if treating of political occurrences intercepted. The Paris papers of Sunday-hardly contain one word of what may be termed of political import. SPAIN.—Madrid papers contain an account of a public disturbance, which took place in that capital on the 5th instant. It appears that at about ten o'clock several groups presented themselves in front of the barracks del Posito, in which is the regiment of infantry of Navarre. A few soldiers of this regiment, having attempted to disperse the mob, were fired upon, and an officer was killed, and another severely wounded. Upon this the troops fired and charged, and the rioters fled towards the quarter de las Solesas, where they were met by another regiment, which a'so fired upon them. Here ended the affair. We are not told whether any of the rioters were killed, but a few, it is said, were made prisoners. According to two of the journals this demon- stration on the part of the rioters was connected with a plot in which 600 conspirators were engaged, who were to seize upon the artillery, assassinate the officers who should oppose them, and, with the aid of a portion of the soldiery, carry on operations on n large scale. By accounts dated the 8th instant, we learn that the city enjoyed a freedom from disturbances. It was rumoured that on the following day one of the persons engaged in the vtneute of the 5th would be shot, as well as an officer, charged with having received money from the conspira- tors. The Gazette publishes instructions for the execution of the tribute law, beginning with the principal town of each province, and so on with other localities. The tribute is, with regard to lands, taken in the net produce of agricultural productions and cattle; with regard to commerce, the profits on goods, on industry, and on lodgings. RUSSIA.—Prince Woronzoff has received an order to repair to Bessarabia, to have an interview with the Em- peror relative to the &)tairs of the Caucasus. It is said here that Prince Woronzoff was opposed to the last plan of operations, but the Emperor was very positive, and gave him strict injunctions to penetrate into the interior of the mountains. Public opinion in general, even in the army, pronounces itself against the war in the Caucasus, which imposes such great sacrifices upon the country. It was the general wish that the Government should have recourse to pacific means, and leave it to time and civilisation to effect by degrees the submission of those mountaineers, but the Emperor is not of this opinion; he fears lest the successive checks which' his army has sustained in the Caucasus should destroy the iufluence Russia has acquired in Asia. Thus, notwith- standing the exhaustion of the Treasury, and the incom- plete state of the regiments in the Caucasus, he is anxious that his army should take revenge, and that ere the year expires. THE UNITED STATES —The Hibemia steamer arrived at Liverpool from Amtfiica on Sunday last, having made her usual rapid passage. She sailed from itoston on Monday, the 1st instant, and brought news of the Great Britain steamer having sailed from New York 'JD the afternoon of Saturday, the 30th ult. The news brought, though extending over the full fortnightly pe- riod, is unusually barren in topics of political interest. All the good folks of the United States seem too busy to be thinking of any thing else save cotton, corn, railways, aid such like. Mexican affairs are endeavoured to be represented as certain to result in war, but this assump- tion is denounced as such by all reasoning people. The war fever is all talk, and every day shows the utter ab- surdity of entertaining such notions. There appears to be a movement going on just now in the Oregon terri- tory in favour of an independent government. A grand entertainment had been given on board the Great Brita;n steamer, at New York. at which the following toasts were given I. The merchants of Bristol-the first to risk their wealth in trans-Atlantic Steam Navigation— the thanks of both nations are justly their due."—41 5?. The President of the United States."—"3. The Queen of Great Britain & Ireland."—"4. Capt. Hosken, whose skill and deportment have secured the confidence of the public with a well-deserved popularity-may the measure of his success correspond with the magnitude of his com- mand."—" 5. The memories of Watt and Fulton-in the Great Britain we witness the grandest triumph of their art, an,1 the "proudest monument of their geiiius. —The pacific influence of steam—it makes all nations neighbours, and neighbours should never quarrel. "The cities of Liverpool and New York-honourable competitors in commercial enterprise." -Captain Hosken stated his belief that the Great Britain was as strong and substantial a ship as ever was built, and that although some improvements might be made in thefalm of the propelling power, he considered the Great Britain as a successful experiment, and one destined to command public confidence. The news from Texas is quite unin- teresting. TAHITI.—In Tahiti the state of public affairs re- mained unsettled. The public mind seemed to be in suspense, waiting the arrival of the English admiral. In the meantime, however, the French are carrying forward their public works and fortifications. Queen Pomare still remained at Raintea, off which'and Huahine thP steamer Phaeton was cruising. The Sarsh Ami brings the confirmation of the death of Captain Forbes, and also the supposed seizure of the Will Watch, by the French steamer, for the illegal sale of muskets to the natives. The American brig Elizabeth, Captain King, of Salem, with arms and ammunition for the Feejees, was at Tahiti last day of March. The French soldiers were kept con- stantly on board to prevent her landing arms, and the French steamer was to see her clear off the islands.

General ittigcfUang* CA.UTION .-Intelligence has been received at Lloyd's, that masters of vessels have been fined several hundred pounds at the Cape of Good Hope, because the christian names of the seamen were not all signed in full, as re- quired by the new act. BRISTOL SUGAR MARKET, SEPT. 17.—The demand for all descriptions of British Plantation sugar continues extremely good, and the offices have been again cleared at an advance of fully Is. per cwt. There have been a few arrivals lately, but the supply is not nearly adequate to the demand, and large quantities continue to be brought coastwise. I here is considerably more inquiry for Rums, and a fair quantity have been sold at former rates. PREFERMENTS BY THE LORD BISHOP OF GLOUCES- TER AND BRISTOL.—The Rev. George Ernest Howman, M.A., rural dean of Taerford, rector of Barnsley, Glou- cestershire, and master of St. Nicholas hospital, Salisbury, to an honorary canonry, in the Cathedral, Bristol.-The Rev. Gilhert Malcolm, M.A., rural dean of ('ampden, and rector of Toddenham, Gloucestershire, to an honorary canonry in the cathedral, Gloucester. NEGRO SLAVERY.—The number of slaves in the world may be estimated as follows, in the following couoteies In Brazil, 2,500,000 United States, 2,600,00 0 Spanish Colonies, 800,000; French Colonies, 250,000; Dutch, Danish, and Swedish Colonies, 100,000; South Ameri- can Republics, 400,000. Total, 6,650,000. SINGULAR DISCOVERY.—A few days since, the work- men engaged in the repairs of the church at Stratton Saint Margaret, after removing a portion of the pavement which formed the floor, and while digging for stone, discovered, only a few inches below the surface, the skeleton of a human body, which, apparently, had been to a considerable extent wrapped in lead & what is most remarkable, the whole of the interior of the skull, and the veitebial canal, including also the smaller bones, were filled with the same material, which must have been in- serted in a liquid state. Very unfortunately, the work- men- had greatly mutilated the body before discovering what it was. The interior of the skull, as before men- tioned, was one mass of lead, and so heavy that it was as much as a man could carry; the facial bones were veiy much concealed by the lead on the outside, but with a little trouble the situation of the nose and eyes conld be traced, and three teeth were discovered. FIFTY Houses BURNT.—Soon after midnight, on Satur- day morning last, a fire broke out in a bakehouse at More- tonhampstead (a small town situate about 12 miles from Exeter), and as nearly all the houses were thatched, the flanges spread with great lapidity, and were not subdued until the greater part of Cross-street was consumed, the number of houses destroyed amounting to about 50, and including the premises of Mr. Bidder, a builder; Messrs. Nix and Co., drapers aud the Golden Lion Inn. The greater part of the property, however, was not of a valu- able kind, and the loss, therefore, is not so extensive as the number of houses burnt would seem to indicate, though much distress will be occasioned to many poor families. The town engine was not in a working state, so that the only available means of stoppingthe progress of the fire was by pulling down some houses, until effective fire- engines arrived from Exeter.—[What would become of Cardiff if a fire were to break out in High-street or Duke- street ? The town engines, we believe, are constantly kept by Superintendent Stockdale in a state of perfect efficiency; but of what use would a dozen powerful engines be without a supply of water 1] ARRIVAL OF THE GREAT BRITAIN.-The Great Britain steamer arrived at Liverpool on Monday morning last, shortly before eight o'clock her intelligence has, how- ever, been anticipated by the arrival of the Hibernia. Captain Hosken reports very satisfactorily of the powers of the screw, and of the ship's machinery. During the whole passage, the engines have never been stopped, but have worked with the greatest possible regularity. The reason of the passage being of somewhat longer duration than was expected is in the difficulty of keeping a sufficient supply of steam. This difficulty her commander and engineer are, however, fully confident of overcoming in her future voyages. Capt. Hosken sailed from New York on the afternoon of the 30th, and at seven p.m. of that day the pilot left her. On her passage she has experienced very little westerly wind, and one day, in a fine breeze, the ship made 298 miles, from noon to noon. The passen- gers, in a letter to Capt. Hosken, state—44 As regards the Great Britain steam-ship, we beg to observe that the voyage has not been so rapidly performed as had been expected, because every advantage has not yet been taken of her admirable qualities and a sufficiency of steam is not produced to work the engines with the power for which they are calculated. In all other respects we con- sider the Great Britain to be unrivalled; her motions are remarkably easy, her accommodations commodious and airy."
