Hill, 21 A, Soho Square Mr. Thomas Lawrence, Brecon SECRETARY.—Mr. Thomas Hawker WHILST providing a grand Trunk Line for Central It' Wales in the Gloucester, Aberystwith, and Central Wales Railway Company, the Directors of that important Undertaking hav« 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, vid Llangerrig, (whete that Line meets that of the Glouces- ter, Aberystwith, and Central Wales) to Aberystwith, connect North and South Wales, also Shropshire, Cheshire, fie., with 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 ruh in an almost direct course along the Banks of the Llunvy River through Talgarth by Llangrose 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. A short Branch from the Glyn Valley will connect the Line with the Great Iron Works and Mineral Districts of Sirhowy, Tredegar, and Rhymney; by means of the Tredegar Railway, connect it also with the important TOwn and Port of Newport. v 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 ta parties locally interested in the Line, and to Scrip Holders in the Glou?€$te( and Aberystwith Railway 1 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.
