Sewell. 11HIS Railway is proposed to be made with a view to its forming a Junction in the most important part of South Wales with three other projected Lines, viz., the South Wales, the Welsh Midland, and the North and South Wales, whereby communication will be formed with North Wales and Ireland, London, Bristol, Glou- anit Ttie^noie-br tne' MortneM iuM11UdlfVilWhy1 ifSman, and also with the Coasts of Devon and Cornwall, and will accommodate the following Towns in the vicinity of the Line, Carmarthen, Llandilo, Llangadock, Llan- dovery, Trecastle, Brecon, Hay, Ciickhowel, Aber- gavenny, Merthyr Tydvil, Swansea, Neath, Lloughor, Llanelly, Kidwelly, Laugharne, St. Clears, Narberth, Haverfordwest, Milford, Cardigan, Newcastle Emlyn, Pembroke, H. M- dockyard at Pater and the fashionable Watering Places of Aberystwith, Tenby, Lanstephan, and the Ferry side. Commencing Pembrey, Carmarthen- shire, a harbour of recent formation, but unequalled in point of situation, depth of water, and safe anchorage for Ships by any other Tidal Harbour on the whole of the Welsh Coast the Line will be carried close to the Village of Peinbrej, in a westward direction about one mile and a half, where it is intended to cross the South Wales Railway, from here, taking a course to the North, it will proceed through the Gwendraeth Vale, passing the Yillages of Pontyates, Ponthenry, Llangendeirne, Pontyberem, Porthyrhyd, Llanddarog to Llanarthney, near to which place it is intended to intersect the Line of the Welsh Midland at a point about six miles from Llandilo and nine from Carmarthen, and on from this point up the Vale of Cothi, passing the Villages of Llanegwad, B rechta, Abergorleeh, Edwinsford, and Llansawel to Lampeter, where it will form a Junction with the North and South Wales Railway, and com- pleting a distance, including branches, of about fifty- four miles. It is intended to connect the Line with the coal, marble, and mineral districts. The Line presents no engineering and the country through which it passes abounds with the materials necessary for its construction. Should it become necessary, arrangements will be made for the continuation of the Line from near Edwins- ford to Rhayader, and to form a junction with other projected Railways. This Railway will proceed for the first 20 miles through a most important mineral district abounding with bituminous anthracite and steam-coals, iron, fire-clay, limestone, black marble, slate, flagstone, copper, and lead ores, and the remainder of the distance across an agricultural country, thus connecting these several districts with the sea and with each other. It is quite obvious that great benefit must also result to the Landowners by the construction of this Railway, in insuring the cheap delivery of Coal and Lime, both essential to the welfare of the Farmer. Thousands of acres of convertible land are now lying barren for want of the means of procuring lime as manure at a moderate cost, which is scarcely to be ob- tained from the heavy charge for transit, in common carts, over bad roads. The traffic in coals, lime, slate, copper and lead ore, timber, cattle, and every description of live stock and agricultural produce, which already exists to a large extent, must receive great impulse from the convenience and economy of his line of Railway. The great interchange of commodities between the manufacturing, the mining, and the agricultural districts, will ensure a large revenue, independently of passenger | traffic, which, must necessarily be of great extent, the line forming a connecting link between many main lines, communicating with every part of the United Kingdom. It is estimated that even the present traffic of the Gwendraeth Vale alone in coal and lime is of itself sufficient to pay a fair percentage on the capital required for this Railway, leaving out all the other sources of profit. The value of the Land generally required for the Line is within the average cost. Until an Act of Parliament shall be obtaiued, the affairs of this Company shall be under the control ui' the Committee of Management, to whom power is given to allot the Shares, and to apply the funds of the Company in payment of the ^incurred in its formation and in the preparation of the Plans and Sections to be sub- mitted to Parliament. Preference will be given in the allotment of Shares to the Landed Proprietors and others locally interested in the Line. Power will be applied for in the Act-and in the meantime is hereby given to the Committee of Manage- ment-to raise an additional capital; to abandon any part of the Line, to make Branch Lines, or enter into arrangements with any other Company or Companies and also to nominate the first Directors of the Company. The Deeds will provide that no Call shall be made on the Shareholders beyond the Deposit until the Act of Parliament is obtain'd, and power will be taken in the Act to allow 4 per Cent. interest on all Calls. The Parliamentary contract and subscribers' agreement will be ready for signature on payment of the deposits. Applications for prospectuses and shares may be made to the solicitors, and to the following stock and share brokers: — Messrs. James, William, and Charles Pepper- corne, 2, Old Broad-street; Messrs. Hill, Fawcett, and Hill, Threadneedle-street; Messrs. Smith, Knowles, and Cook, Leeds Messrs. Wreford, Nicholls, and Wreford, Bristol; Messrs.
