Hill, 21 A, Soho Square Mr. Thomas Lawrence, Brecon SECRETARY.—Mr. Thomas Hawker WHILST providing a grand Trunk Line for Central Vf Wales in the Gloucester, Aberystwith, and Central Wales Railway Company, the Directors of that important Undertaking have not been unmindful of the various solicitations they have received for the extension of its public usefulness. Amongst the first and most necessary of the contem- plated Extensions is the Line of Railway now proposed the objects of which are to connect, by a direct Line, the teeming and fertile Districts of Herefordshire and the adjoining highly productive Agricultural Counties of Radnor and Cardigan with the great Mineral Districts of Merthyr Tidvil and the Neighbourhood; and by means of the Manchester and Birmingham Continuation and Welsh Junction, proposed to run from Crewe, via Llangerrig, (where that Line meets that of the Glouces- ter, Aberystwith, and Central Wales) to Aberystwith, connecting North and South Wales, Shropshire, Cheshire' Sic., as also the West of England. It will be hardly necessary to dilate upon the enormous Traffic which must exist between the densely populated Districts of Merthyr Tidvil, the Agricultural Counties before mentioned, with the surrounding country, and the Mines of Cardiganshire. In the latter neighbourhood the want of Coal is much felt. Improvement in Trade, increased Profits to Mining Establishments and Manufac- turers, the more ready interchange of Food for the products of the Mines, and general addition to prosperity must follow from the construction of this Line, which has the merit of clashing with no other project, and of being strongly sought after and recommended by existing interests. This Line will leave the Main Line at Glasbury, from whence it will run in an almost direct course along the Banks of the Llunvy River through Talgarth by Llangose Lake, crossing the river Usk at a most favourable point; it will then intersect the populous neighbourhood of Talybont, and, after striking the Valleys of the Glyn and Taffechan, terminate at Merthyr Tidvil. The necessary connection of this Line with the Taff Vale and South Wales Railways will be obvious. It may be remarked that this Line has long been called for by the Local Wants of the Districts affected by its progress, and was surveyed many years since by an eminent Engineer (the late George Overton, Esq., who planned the first Railway for Locomotive Power in the Kingdom.) The length of the Line will be about Twenty Miles. In the Allotment of Shares (which will take place at the earliest possible moment, on account of the necessity of being prepared for the ensuing Session of Parliament,) preference will be given to parties locally interested in the Line, and to Scrip Holders in the Gloucester and Aberystwith Railway Company. Applications for Shares in the annexed Form, may be made to the respective Solicitors; to the Secretary, at the Offices of the Company, No. 1, New Broad Street; or to the following Local Solicitors :— Birmingham Messrs. Hill and Everill. Gloucester Henry Evans, Esq. Ross Messrs. Edwards. Hereford J. H. Ravenhill, Esq. Hay W. Pugh, Esq. Builth. Evan Vaughan, Esq. Rhayader Evan Williams, Esq. Aberystwith W. Miller, Esq. FORM OF APPLICATION. To the Provisional Committee of the Hereford and Merthyr Tidvil Junction Railway. Gentlemen,—I request that you will allot me Shares in the above Railway, and I agree to accept that or any less number that you may please to allot me; and I undertake to pay the Deposit of E2 2s. per Share on the same, and to sign the Subscribers' Agreement and Parliamentary Contract, when required.
