MONMOUTHSHIRE RAILWAY AND CANAL COMPANY. It is with unfeigned pleasure we communicate to our readers ihe important intelligence of the final termination of all matter* so long in dispute between this Company and the Freighter- ;:nd that too in the most amicable manner. On Thursday last (as we are informed oil good authority) a meeting took place at Morley's Hotel, Charing Cross, I London; the Company being represented by Mr. Booker, ill. the elttir) Messrs C. Hailev, M. P., Octavius Morgan, M.P., H. Wedgewood, NicholCarne. George Thomas, G. Whittaker, C. Conway, W. Jenkins, &c., with Mr. Savery, solicitor, and Mr Harrison, chief clerk; and the Freighters by Messrs. Thomas and Ja-nes Brown, Richard Johnson, \V. S. Cartwright, M. Morrison, with Mr. Secretan Wood- house. The meeting lasted several hours, and, though much pro- gress was made, stood adjourned to Friday. ° All matters relating to tolls and charges in the bill now before parliament were withdrawn; as also the clauses relating to the conversion of the roads from tram-plate to edge rails; and the chief point left open for discussion was that relating to the completion of the works—namely, an unbroken line of railway from the docks at Newport to the Biaenavou Ironworks. The Messrs. Brown strongly pressed for a compulsory clause in the bill, requiring the completion of these works within a given time, which was resisted on the part of the Company. The difficulty was, however, got over by the Chairman, and each of the other members of the Company, giving their pledge, individually and collectively, that it was their lull intention and resolve to complete the works referred to without any unnecessary delay. Some matters of minor import were then discussed and arranged, after which, a mutual inte change of good feeling took the Chairman stating that, as their differences were at length arranged, nothing would give him greater pleasure than to see Mr. Thomas Brown at the meeting fixed for the 19th of the present month, elected a member of the Committee of Management of the Company, ia which expression of feeling other gentlemen concurred, aud the meeting separated in the most friendly manner.
