TO THE PUBLIC. ON the first appearance of a New Paper be- C y fore that august Tribunal which is ulti- mately to fix its destiny, Custom exacts a disclosure of its claim to notice: obedient to. her mandate, we intreat attention while we concisely develope the motives on which our pretensions to approbation and favour are grounded. The utility of Newspapers is too obvious to re- quire a single comment; yet, notwithstanding their great increase of late years, particularly Provincial Journals, the Principality of Wales has, till now, been denied one of those vehicles of refinement, instruction, and amusement; when in no part of the kingdom could the necessity for such an esta- blishment more strongly exist. Its numerously enlightened inhabitants have thus been subjected to various inconveniences from the same cause, the importance of the trade of Wales, its valuable resources, and commercial enterprise, are at this moment but imperfectly known. These consi- derations gave birth to THE CAMBRIAN. Our design is not merely to multiply the chan- nels of general knowledge we have formed expec- Z, tations of a more elevated nature and ardently hope to be instrumental in rendering service to the Principality lastingly beneficial. We, therefore, again earnestly invite all who can estimate the best means of promoting the advantage of Wales, by the improvement of Agriculture, extension of Trade, or otherwise, to transmit their suggestions, (post-paid) and THE CAMBRIAN shall be the means of disse- mination. It will moreover be our study to convey early and authentic details of every interesting trans- action at home and abroad we shall faithfully record the proceedings of the Legislature, and all important decisions in the Law Courts: the prices of the London Markets, and fluctuations of the public Funds, shall be correctly stated; and no subject worthy of observation shall escape our fcacar.'IitB.Our will onr-blc v.s- tc anticipate the London prints in regard to Irish news; an object, at the present crisis, deserving of remark. Independence and Impartiality shall be our basis- Truth our guide. We will never sacrifice at the shrine of Party. The envied Constitution of this Realm shall uniformly have our firmest support, and the Laws our reverence. Our unceasing en- deavours will be directed to cherish the noble ardour, and fan the generous flame of patriotism, which has roused Britain's sons to arms in defence of their sacred rights and privileges, threatened with destruction, "by a fierce and haughty foe, for that we alone among the nations have been found to withstand his violent and unjust ambition." Intelligent Agents have been appointed in the chief towns of Wales to forward regular accounts of the arrival and sailing of shipping-returns of the prices of grain, cattle, and other merchan- dise in the principal markets and fairs-names of company frequenting the different places of fashi- onable resort-and all occurrences which may be entitled to narration. To this multifarious intelli- gence will be united the local information of the neighbouring English counties. Hence, it is pre- sumed, the provincial department of this Paper will be found peculiarly attractive. The facility which THE CAMBRIAN will afford for reciprocally communicating and supplying wants of every description, must not pass unnoticed. For a comparatively trifling expence, may be ad- vertised the intended public or private disposal of landed or other property-the sailing of a ship to a particular port; or the arrival of another with a cargo for sale-schemes of invention, &c. &c. By this mode also, masters may have a choice of servants, and the latter obtain desirable situations-the artist or tradesman newly arrived will be known throughout the Principality within a week-the monied-man may abuse his security for loans, and the needy be furnished, without an exposure of names except to each other. In short, so extensively useful is a Newspaper in this respect, that it has been truly described as a resource which knows no bounds. Having now declared our views and intended system of conduct, we resign THE CAMBRIAN into the hands of a liberal and discriminating Public, in confident expectation of indulgent sup- port and patronage, so long as our actions and professions shall accord. Welchmen, acknowledged lovers of their own country, will not, surely, desert a first-born and only child, whose efforts will be steadily devoted to their benefit. Before we conclude, we deem it our duty to account for the non-publication of THE CAMBRIAN on the 7th instant, the period originally proposed and partially announced throughout the Princi- pality.-The delay arose from the circumstance of the chief part of our Printing Materials having been shipped at Bristol on board the Phoenix sloop, Captain Diamond, bound for Swansea, which was in the first instance detained several days in the former port by contrary winds, and when she at length finally sailed, encountered a violent gale, which forced her into Milford, from whence she did not arrive until the 6th of this month, and we could not obtain our goods until the 12th-the pro- traction was consequently unavoidable on our part.
COLLIERIES AND ESTATE, SOUTH-WALES. TO BE SOLD OR LET, VERY CONSIDERABLY BkLOW THEIR REAL VALUE, CERTAIN COLLIERIES on the navigable RIVÈR BURRY, dividing the counties of GLAMORGAN and CARMARTHEN containing by actual survey, inclusive of certf^a intermixed Lands, at the command of-the proprie- tor of these Collieries, 10,021,000 TONS of net workable COAL, exclusive of pillars, now working upon a small scale, but capable of being immediately placed upon a larger one, and rendered productive to the net amount of from 10 to 15,0001. per annum, at the comparatively trivial expence of from 6 to io,oool. a Colliery-surveyor of the first character for skill and integrity having made his estimates to that amount;, offering to demonstrate their accuracy beyond the possibility of contradiction, and to become himself, if per- mitted, a sharer in the adventure. Together with the best SHIPPING PLACE, and a situa- tion for the erection of SMELTING-HOUSES, &c. on that river, whefe Vessels of large burthen may lie, and take in, or disclicu-ge their cargoes, with safety in all weathers, and at all times of tide. Together also with FREEHOLD LANDS, consisting of 843 Acres, partly tythe-free, let at 716I. 7s. 3d. per annum, but valued at 8241. is. 9d. of all of which immediate posses- sion may be given. The whole will be either sold or let for any term of from 50 to 100 years, upon the most moderate terms. If any respectable coal, copper, iron, tin, or glass-house company, should be suited by this proposal, which would probably place them at once at the he'ed of their respective concerns, from the great superiority of advantages beyond those possessed by any other company in the kingdom the Proprietor, to evince his own sense of the undertaking, would be happy to embark largely in the adventure. So many parties have already expressed their wishes to be admitted partners in it, that not improbably a capital of a very large amount might be raised in the country. The present price of Coals on this river is now from six to ten shillings per ton and as a further encouragement to iron-masters, it has been clearly ascertained, that the great range of Iron-stone, not more than ten miles distant from these premises, of the same number of veins and quality as those of Aberdare, Merthyr, Blaenavon, &c. &c. can never be smelted to advantage but at these Collieries. None but principals, or agents of the first respectability, will be treated with. The letters of such (post-paid) directed to Mr. Edward Martin, Col'liery-inspector, of Morriston, Swansea, Glamorganshire, who has all the Surveys and Sec- tions in his possession, will be attended to and to prevent delays, if the writers will put B.C. (the initials of Burry Collieries) on the outside of their letters, they will be opened and acknowledged in Mr. Martin's absence from home. N. B. Coals have been advanced on Swansea River, with- in these ten years, from 40s. per Swansea Wey, (of ten tons) to 72s. TO BE LET, From LADY-DAY next, THE Capital MANSION of BIRCHGROVE, JL with or without the adjacent FARM and LANDS, situate within five Miles of the Town of Swansea, and very accessible from the two Turnpike-Roads which pass near it.—The House is modern, and its situation, com- fort and convenience, are strong recommendations. For particulars apply by letter (post-paid) to Mr. Levi Jones, Swansea. January 28th, 1804. GLAMORGANSHIRE. TO BE LET, A FARM of 220 ACRES of ARABLE and PASTURE LANDS, with a good HOUSE and Out- buildings, adjacent to the turnpike-road from Swansea to Loughor, sea-ports, at an equal distance from both, about three miles and a half it adjoins three excellent Commons, on which it hath extensive rights. A stream of water runs through it, abounding with Fish, and sufficiently powerful for any works of Tin or Iron, for both of which it is particularly adapted, as being- situated near Coal fit for all purposes and in a woodland country, where an ample supply of Char- coal can be assured. Particulars, when required, addressed to Mr. Levi Jones, Swansea, will be attended to, post-paid. SWANSEA. TO BE LET, AND MAY BE ENTERED UPON IMMEDIATELY, TWO commodious HOUSES, situate in WIND-STREET, replete with every convenience which can possibly be desired each comprising a large un- der-ground arched kitchen, pantry, cellar, and coal-house, occupying a depth of nearly 40 feet on the ground floor, a capital shop, 25 feet by 16, with two handsome bow win- dows, having a counting-house adjoining, and a kitchen, pantry, brewhouse, scullery, and pumps of soft and hard water behind on the first floor an elegant drawing-room, of the same dimensions as the shop, a lobby, and two bed- chambers on the second story another drawing-room, 16 feet square, a lobby, and three bed-chambers on the third floor, an excellent dining-room, a lobby, and three bed-cham- bers with four good attics above. The front of these Premises is handsomely finished with polished brick, supported by free-stone pillars, pilasters, arches, and cornices, with parapet-walls coped with free- stone. The shops, counting-houses, and all the front-rooms, are corniced, and, together with the lobbies and stair-cases, beautifully stuccoed. The best rooms are fitted up with Bath stoves and marble chimney-pieces, and all the others with good grates. Behind each house there is a double coach- house and. four-stall stable, both cieled, with hay-lofts over the same, and an inclosed yard, with handsome gates, and a road into Fisher-street.-Gardens may also be had, if required. The back rooms command a delightful view of the sea, from which they are not more than 200 yards distant and the premises are situated in the most desirable part of the town of Swansea, being exactly opposite the principal Inn, where the Mail Coaches to and from London and Ireland arrive daily, and within a few yards of the Post-office, Theatre, and Market. These Premises are admirably adapted for carrying on an extensive line of business, and the tenants cannot fail of letting any part of the houses they may appropriate for LODG- INGS during the summer season, when the town is filled with fashionable company to breathe the salubrious air for which Swansea is so justly celebrated, and to enjoy its warm and cold bathing. Each floor forms a complete suit of rooms for a family, with separate kitchens, and other domestic conveniences. Further particulars may be had by personal application, or letters, post-paid, to Thos. Williams, Surgeon, Swansea. To PRINTERS in general, and more particularly to NEWSPAPER PRINTERS. A MECHANIC who has CONTRIVED a LETTER-PRESS ENGINE by the power of which two Forms may be worked off at the same time, and upon the same sheet and with which neither skill nor hard la- bour are required, except the laying on the ink, the method being the same as now practised at all the present Letter- presses in Europe Wishes to dispose of its Model. One Man and three Boys will be able to work off the two Forms of a Newspaper in less time than four Men with two Presses could. N. B. The expence for executing a complete Press, upon the Plan of that Model will be less than 30I. the model being one eighth of it, cost only 6 guineas, and is principally Cast-iron.

Whatever has a tendency to lessen the labour or facili- tate the knowledge of a difficult science, must be in some degree entitled to attention. These are professedly the objects of the Glossary before us, which appears to have been compiled by the very able and ingenious author with much judgment and research. To the learned and curious a work of this kind must prove highly- valuable, as the sources from which the various terms and idioms in medical language are drawn, are extremely numerous and compli- cated. The student may also derive great advantage from the present publication, as the peculiar and appropriate meanings of the different technical terms of his profession may be easily acquired by turning to it."

BEAUTY, HEALTH, and a GOOD SET OF TEETH, Easily to be obtained by using of NEWTON'S RESTORATIVE TOOTH POWDER, Patronised and used by Their Majesties and the rest of the Royal Family. MR. NEWTON has the honour to acquaint the Nobility, Gentry, and the Ladies in general of Swansea, and the south of Wales, that bein- honoured with the patronage and support of Their Majesties, and the rest of the Royal Family, the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and his Lady, as well as by most of the distinguished Nobility and Gentry in the United Kingdom, and being perfectly sensible of the many obligations he is under to the most eminent of the faculty, in not only using but in recommending generally the use of his Tooth Powder, begs leave, in the most earnest manner, to return his sin- cere thanks to them and though he is surrounded by the most consummate empirics, (forcing their dangerotls nos- trums for the Teeth, &c. to be circulated through the kingdoms by the most false and audacious advertisements) begs leave, in the most earnest manner, to caution the public against becoming the dupes of such unprincipled ar- tifices, and to assure them that lie still continues to supply his numerous Venders with his Tooth Powder, genuine, through his only wholesale Agents, Messrs. Shaw and Edwards, No. 66, St. Paul's Churchyard, London, pre- pared from the only Recipe of that great and learned physician, the late Sir Richard Jebb, M.D. to their pre- sent Majesties. It is as pleasant in its use as it is excellent in its effects. It speedily renders the Teeth smooth and white the gums healthful and firm eradicates the most inveterate scurvy in the gums and by using it regularly, according to the printed directions sealed round each box, Mr. Newton, the only" proprietor, will forfeit one thousand pounds, if ever an instance occurs of any person having the Tooth-ach, or'a Tooth decay, to the latest period of life. Mr. Newton hopes by inserting the following letter of a gentleman, well known in Swansea and its vicinity, will prove an ulterior demonstration of the superior efficacy of his Tooth Powder:— "Sir Watkin Lewes has received a box of Mr. Newton's Tooth Powder, which was sent him yesterday, being most dreadfully afflicted with the Tooth-ach it afforded him al- most instant relief. He was about sending his servant for another, when Mr. Newton's man called with one (in case of a return) as he thinks it the most valuable medicine for the Tooth-ach he ever experienced. The relief Sir W. has received, has induced him to send Mr. Newton one guinea, which he desires Mr. Newton will do him the favour to accept, and shall feel himself particularly happy in recom- mending all his friends to make use of it for the future. Green-street, Grosvenor-square, Dec. 18th, 1803. To Mr. Newton, Great Russell-street, Bedford, square." Also, for the Face and Skin, is particularly recommended, NEWTON'S ROYAL SWEET-SCENTED LUPIN SOAP. the only article at present known to make and preserve a beautiful skin prevents the hands and face from chapping in cold weather in hot weather it removes all freckles, sun- burns, and tans is particularly recommended for gentle- men to shave with who have tender faces. Also, b Newton's Warranted Tooth Brushes, made purposely to use with his Tooth Powder. The great complaint of common tooth brushes is, that they are so badly manufactured, that in a few times using the hairs all become loose, as well as very dangerous to use.—Mr. Newton warrants all his Tooth Brushes.
