HERBERT DOWNMAN, Esq., Hon. Sec., pro tem. PROSPECTUS. 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.
