THE objects of the intended Line are to afford a direct .L communication between Ireland, Wales, Bristol, and the West of England and Dovor, the great Channel port of t'ie Continent. To form by its junction with the Southampton Rail- Way at Weybridge, the shortest and most direct line between London and Bristol, effecting a saving of many 1niles over the present circuitous route by the Great Western. By its intersection and junction with the Southampton line, and the intended Manchester and Southampton, Cheltenham, Oxford and Brighton, and Birmingham, Reading and Brighton Railways on the narrow gauge principle it not only forms the shortest means of com- munication between Lancashire and Dovor, from which fclone will accrue a very large traffic, but it must derive a considerable revenue from the simple fact of its being the only means of south country connection between so many lines on the same gauge. To effect these objects, the line will commence at Bris- tol, in the northern part of the city, and after forming a Junction with the Gloucester and Bristol Railway, will proceed by Bath, Bradford, Trowbridge, and Devizes, through the Vale of Pewsey to Silchester, where it divides into two lines, the one proceeding directly to Weybridge, on the London line, and the other passing •wuthwards by Sandhurst, Guildford, and Dorking, to Jleigate, or to Dorking only, should the South Eastern Cflrapany carry out their proposed extension to that point, where it will merge into the South Eastern line, by ^vhich the traffic will be carried on directly to Dovor, and ^hich station (Reigate) is also the point of junction of the Brighton Railway. Independently, however, of the great through traffic between its termini, the local trade of the various towns on the intended line is certainly of considerable import- ance, and sufficient of itself to yield ample profit. De- nizes, Bradford, and Trowbridge, form the centre of the great Western cloth trade, and when a position of ready Access to them shall be restored, from the want of which t^ey have already suffered, there can be no question that 'Corresponding accession of importance and traffic will take place; for which latter the only channel of trans- mission eastwards must be by the Railroad now in Contemplation. In addition to the above-mentioned manufacturing towns, the projected Railway passes throug a rich agri- cultural district hitherto totally neglected as to railway communication, from which it will readily be seen great Mutual benefit must inevitably arise. The increasing importance of Dovor, consequent on the great improvement and enlargement of its harbour, now in progress, must by means of the Great Northern Railway of France from Paris to Calais, make it, on accowit of the shortness of the sea voyage, the great port ()f communication with France and the Continent. The country through which the intended Line passes been carefully surveyed, and affords a direct line, free from engineering difficulties. From a consideration of the route, and by a glance at the map, it will at once be seen that this project will Place in immediate connection the mineral and coal districts of Wales, the great traffic that empties itself 111to Bristol from the Birmingham branch line via Glou- cester—the West of England cloth and agricultural districts—the productions of the North, together with the "Commercial and passenger traffic of Ireland, (now so :much on the increase,) with the important towns of "Central Kent, Canterbury, Tunbridge, Maidstone, and ■^shford, and the ports of its eastern coast, Folkstone and Dover, &c., opening at the same time a direct road to pliais, Boulogne, and Paris, shorter than any now 'Owned or projected, as also to other productive French Ports: whilst its forming at the same time a shorter road from Bristol and the adjacent country to London, and "he perfect directness of the larger portion of the Line, nnust prove most powerful additional recommendation, particularly when the latter feature is obtained, not sacrifice of capital to overcome engineering difficul- ties, but by the very operation of avoiding them. la the allotment of Shares, the Proprietors of the I different Lines in connection with the present project, as ^vell as neighbouring Landowners, will be entitled to a Preference, and they are requested to state the same in their applications.. The liability of the Shareholders will be limited by the J\.(}t to the amount of their shares respectively subscribed ^org and power will be applied for to allow interest at 'Ihe rate of £4 per cent. per annum on the calls, from the date of each payment, until the opening of the Line.

Deposit £'l2!'1. per share. PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT. This Company is formed for the purpose; of affording to the well-known iron and coal district of Monmouth- shire, the advantages of railway and locomotive commu- nication, both for its enormous mineral produce, and tra- velling accommodation for its dense and thriving popula- tion. The produce of the large iron works and collieries it is intended this railway shall communicate with, is at pre- sent conveyed to the magnificent port of Newport, by means of a tramroad of the rudest construction, on which the average rate of travelling does not exceed two miles per hour. This, though maintained at an extravagant cost, has yielded to the proprietors for many years past from 12 to 15 per cent., and the present price of each JE100 share is £230, although there is no revenue what- ever derived from passengers. When this country is afforded the accommodation of railway communication for its passenger, iron, tin-plate, and coal traffic, it is not presumption to predict that it will not stand second to any undertaking of a similar kind in the kingdom for importance and profit. Prospectuses, with the names of a most influential committee, will be published in the course of a few days and in the meantime further particulars may be had by application to Messrs. W. O. and W. Hunt, soiicitors, 10, Whitehall, London. GLAMORGAN CEXTML MINERAL RAILAVAY. PRELIMINARY 'ANNOU|ncement. Capital, £500,000 in 25 000 Shares, of JE20 eich. Deposit, £2 per Share. THIS Line of Railway (which is proposed by the _)_ Duffryn Llynvi and Porth Cawl Railway Company), will embrace the richest Mineral Field in the Principality, lying chiefly in the Hundreds of Newcastle and Ogmore, and comprising a district of about 10 miles squire, abounding with Coal of the best quality, also with Argil- aceous and Black Band Iron Ore. It is proposed to construct this Railway in the most efficient manner, to carry a branch line up each of the Mineral Valleys into which the district is divided, to connect them into one Trunk line near Bridgend and to enlarge the present Harbour of Porth Cawl (which is about midway between Cardiff and Swansea), into a commodious Port adapted to the extensive traffic con- templated. It is intended, for the convenience of Passengers, to connect the main line with the South Wales Railway at two different points towards Cardiff and Neath; which will also afford facilities of Shipment at thetvarious Ports, accessible by the South Wales line. A detailed Prospectus, with the names of an influen- tial Committee, will be shortly submitted to the public, when it will be seen that no line of Railway yet projected offers greater advantages in the way of Investment, or opens such an inexhaustible field of Mineral Wealth. Further information may in the mean time be obtained of Mr. WILLIAM LEWIS, Solicitor, Bridgend; and Messrs. ROWLAND, HACON & ROWLAND, Solicitors, Threadneedle Street, London.
