Fleming, Esq* rpHE object of the proposed undertaking is to supply .1. an efficient system of Railway ^cc°mmodation for a populous and important district Glamorganshire, comprising the Vallies of the Llynvi. the Garw, and the Ogmore. These Vallies contain the most valuable Coal measures of the South Wales Basin, and abound in Argillaceous and Black Band Iron Ore. Hitherto the district has been most imperfectly pro- vided with the means of access to the Port of Shipment, but the South Wales Railway Bill having received the Royal Assent, it has become obvious to those acquainted with the locality, that this portion of South Wales is destined to occupy a prominent station among the manu- facturing districts of the kingdom. By means of the proposed line, which will commence at the head of the Llynvi Valley, continuing on towards St. Bride's Minor, and thence diverging to a point of Junction with the South Wales line» it will be seen that the several ports ot Port Talbot, Forth Cawl, JMeatn. Swansea, and Cardiff, will at once be opened to the above distiict. At present a single line of railroad worked by horse, and not adapted to locomotive power, leading from the Llynvi Valley, is the only means of railway communica- tion with the sea, but rude and imperfect as the means have been the Valley of the Llynvi has, within the Las: five years, advanced in importance with almost unexam- pled rapidity. Already several Iron Works are esta- blished along the Yalley-others are in course of erection -extensive Collieries have been opened—and arrange- ments are now in active progress for extending the operations of the Valley to other branches of manufac- ture. The Vallies of the Garw and the Ogmore, though at present unopened; are known to contain minerals as valuable as those of the Llynvi; and there can be no doubt th tt, in the course of a short period, works will be commenced in those localities, and which the formation of the proposed line will greatly tend to accelerate. The committee, therefore, feel unable to make even a reason- able guess as to what may be the limit of traffic when new works are established, and increased facilities of conveyance afforded. It is, however, a sufficient justifi- cation for the formation of the line to state, that the Tolls at present paid for the carriage of mineral produce over the Llynvi Valley alone, amount to a sum equal to 0 per cent, upon the contemplated outlay and such Tolls from the increase of the works in progress are likctv to be doubled in the course of the next year. It is weH known that the County of Glamorgan ranks in importance the first among the counties of the princi- pality a position naturally arising from the extent and richness of its mineral deposits. The few canals and railways hitherto constructed in that district, have been formed almost exclusively for the conveyance of minerals, and the success attendant upon those undertakings may be collected from the following statement, extracted from the CARDIFF AND MERTIIYIIGUARDIAN, dated October4th, 1845: — No. of Original Present Shares. Cost. Price. Glamorganshire Canal GOO 100 210 Swansea Canal 533 100 235 Neath Canal 250 100 340 Duffryn Llynvi Railway 400 I 100 140 Taff Vale Railway i 3000 | 100, HI Considering, therefore, the extent of the existing traffic in mineral pioduce over the Llynvi Valley alone, and without taking into account what may be expected from the Vallies of the Garw and the Ogmore from the conveyance of passengers—from general merchandize— and from agricultural produce—the Provisional Commit- tee feel sanctioned in holding out the expectation that the proposed line will be not only advantageous to the district, but highly remunerative to the Shareholders. The line will be constructed upon the broad guage principle and as arrangements are ooutemplated with the South Wales Riihvay Company, by which a portion of the line may be either formed or leased by that Com- pany, the committee reserve the right to relinquish a part of the line as laid down by Mr; Cubitt, and also the right of leasing, or of making any deviation or alteration in the line towards th;) point of junction with the South Wales Railway. The usual power will b3 taken by the Act to allow in- terest at £-1 per cent. per annum, on the amount of the subscriptions paid up; and the Act will limit the liability of subscribers to the amount of their respective subscrip- tions. Prospectuses, with plans and forms of applications for shares, may be had at the offices of the Company, No. 3-3, Broad Street Buildings. CARDIFF PUTEl'imm. B.

COD LIVER OIL. A Natural remedy and certain cure for Gout, Rheu- .L1 matism, and Scrofula, Diseased Joints, Lumbago, Skin Diseases, Spinal and Glandular Affections, Scrofula Ulcers, Swelled Legs, and all External Diseases, a,ising from an impure slate of the Blood, or fr.im Domestic Accidents as Sprains, Bnnscs, Wounds, Scalds, Burns, Chilblains, Chapped Hands.&c.&c. The following Testimonials, with authenticated cases of extraordinary cure, are from the highest and most respectable authortty :— COD LIVB { Oil. in cases of GOUT & RHEUMATISM. The diseases in which the Cod Liver Oil is attended with the most extraordinary results are the Gont and Ilheumatism. It is rather a curious fact, and one that fully establishes the truth of what we have already staled, that some years ago, Cod Liver Oil was introduced into Manchester, by a celebrated German practitioner, then on a visit to Dr. Kay, Physician to the Manchester Infirmary, who was the first medical man who prescribed this remedy for the cure of Gout and Rheumatism, in this country. Mr. Darby, I louse-Surgeon and Apoiliecary to the same institution, gave 'he following acco.int of an ex- traordinary cure :— A woman, who laboured under the most excruc iating rheumatism, being advised to rub her joints with the oil, after a few weeks was restored to the use of her limbs and wps cured." Encouraged by this extraordinary cure, Dr. Kay continued to prescribe it for other patients in similar cases, and with the same success. Dr. Bardsley, also, when treating of chronic rheumatism observes,' In instances, when every other means have failed Cod Liver Oil has operated in a manner so decidedly benefi- cial as to excite astonishment." The circumstances under which this specific remedy is found most advantageous, are the foilowing :-Ist. In the chronic rheumatism ot elderly persons, when the muscles a-id tendons have become rigid, and the joints nearly flexible, in consequence of the disease having been brought Oil by exces- sive labour, hard fare, dampness, and cold. 2ud. In women whose constitutions have been worn out by repeated rheumatic attacks, especially in the decline of life; & patients wtio were wnable either to preserve the body in an erect position, or sup- port its weight on the lower extremities, have recovered eu- tirely by rubbing the oil on the affected parts. DR. BRKFIELD'S OPINION, WITH CASKS OF CURE. Another celebrated Physician. Dr. Brefield. found the oil of the greatest benefit in cases where the Gout or Itheumatism appear to have seized upon the whole systezl1, alld when, as the result of long suffering, the body is wasted, the process of nutrition very slow, there is want of sleep, loss of vital powers, languid expression of the countenance, contraction of the mus- cles, &c. &c.; and mentions the following case of Mrs. Mearman, 30 years old, who had been confined to her bed or room, and only in the warm summer months experienced a slight alleviation of her sufferihgs :—Nearly the whole body was attacked, but principally the inferior extremities, back, and shoulders. Walking was entirely prevented by the unsup- portable pams, stiffiess and swelling of the joints. This pa- tient was wasted, of a bleachy whiteness, and had lost all hope of relief, though originally of a strong and robust constitution, The use of the Oil daily, was soon followedby a beneficial result, and after some time she was restored to a tolerable state of heaith. Tuis person, after this, was three years from the time he first saw her, perfectly healthy, well nourished, blooming, and of robust appearance. COD LIVER OIL IN OLD AGE & RIGID MUSCLES. Men and women advanced in years, whose fibres may be supposed to have acquired a degree of rigidity, find surprising effects from the use of this remedy. Some who have been cripples for many years, and not able to move from their seats, have, after a few weeks use of it, been able to go with the assistance of a stick and by a long coutionance have enjoyed the pleasing -ansfaction of being restored to the natural use of their limbs, which for a long time before had been a burthen to them. Dr. Percival, Of the Manchester Infirmary, say«! I have had the fullest evidence of the successful use of Cod Liver Oil, and have contrasted, by experiment, its value with other remedies. these trials always terminate in favour of the Oil and patients wlm were under other treatment, by confer- ring with their fello v-sufferers, were so sensible of making a slower progress towards recovery, as to require a change of one remedy for the other. The above is only a small portion of air immense number of Testimonials that have already been received in support of the extraordinary properties of this truly wonderful NATURAL REMEDY. Prospectuses containing additional evidence of the value of Cod Liver Oil in other diseases, viib general remarks on its natural and commercial history, its Physical and Chemical Properties, Action on the Human Economy, &c.j also particular directions for its proper application, will be sent to any address on the receipt of two postage stamps.
