iMwgsitsi. IMPORTANT TO ADVERTISERS rpHE Counties of SOUTH WALES, bor. J- daring on England, offer the most valuable and profitable fields for ADVERTISERS that can be found within the same extent in the empire-if we exclude the great Metropolis, and the rich teeming districts of the ever-productive, the ever-absorbing NORTH. MONMOUTHSHIRE, GLAMORGANSHIRE, BRECONSHIRE, with their large population, commercial enterprise, and .Y rapidily-increasing wealth, are, unquestionably, COUNTIES to which Advertisers may look with confidence for an ample return for any outlay they may incur, in pushing their several interests, with a view to large and produc- tive sales, &c. THE MONMOUTHSHIRE MERLIN, GLAMORGANSHIRE AND BRECON SILURIAN, AND SOUTH WALES ADVERTISER, haa been for more than a quarter of a century, the GREAT ADVERTISING MEDIUM OFTHE DISTRICT. Advertisers desirous of availing themselves of the pub- licity of its columns, are requested to address the Publisher, Mr. CHRISTOPHERS, NEWPORT, MON- MOUTHSHIRE. Advertisements inserted on a Moderate Scale; and when Contracted for by the Year, Half-year, or Quarter, the terms are proportionately reduced. NEWSPAPER CIRCULATION.

In 1836, they commenced appointing Agents for the Sale of their HOWQUA'S MIXTURE,' and MOWQUA'S SMALL LEAF GUNPOWDER the fame of which justly CELEBRATED TEAS spread ^5' n''1r?er0US J^?eDts were appointed, and large sales ettectert. 1 he flattering reception and patronage accorded by the Public to these Teas, led to the idea of packing all the various kinds in general use. At first the sale in packages was novel, and B. S. and Co., for some years had almost the exclusive Trade at length a host of competi- tors sprung up, which had only the effect of bringing them into greater notoriety, from the fact of their adopting the plan, to which they strictly adhere, of Selling NONE BUT TEAS OF GENUINE AND STERLING QUALITY. In these days of pretension, when the art of puffery is exhausted to palm off upon the public mere rubbish, under a decorated disguise, it would seem almost hopeless to advertise a good article, without bestowing a few su- perlatives upon it; but, as good wine needs no bush,' so good Teas reouire no adventitious aids to recommend them.
