THIS Kailway will commence at the station of the Monmouth and Hereford and Worcester and South Wales Junction at Ross, proceeding through a rich agricultural district, now devoid of railway accommodation, to Abergavenny, and from thence by Lianelly, Nant-y Glo, l'redegar. Ellow Vale, Rumney, and Vow- '■MS, to AJertltyr Tydvil, at which place it will join the Taff Vale railway. The distance will not exceed fotty miles. On reference to the map, it will be seen that this line, in con- junction with the proposed Worcester and South Wales Junction Railway, via Lt-jnry, Malvern, and Ross, will perfect a con- tinuous and direct communication from Menhyr Tydvil to Lon- don, Gloucester, Birmingham, South Staffordshire, and the North. The population of Merthyr and the surrounding mineral dis- tricts exceeds 120,000, and this line will place it in direct con- nection with the agricultuial counties of Monmouth, Hereford, and Worcester. The line will be laid down so as to render the greatest accom- modation to the principal iron works in the district through which it will pass, and a saving of ten miles over any other line will be effected between Merthyr and Worcester, and other places noith and east of that city. Arrangements are in progress with the Worcester and South Wales Junction Railway Company, for the mutual advantage of both Companies. Applicants lor shares who are personally known to Members of I he Provisional Committee, are requested to refer to one of such Committee all other applicants will be required to give a reference to some banker or other person of known respectabi- lity in London, or the town from which the application is made. A preference will be given to the holders of scrip in the Worces ter and South Wales Junction Railway. The usual power will be taken by the Act to allow interest at 4 pEr cent. per annum on the amount of subscription paid up, and no subscnber will be answerable for more than the amount of his deposit until the Act is obtained, and then not beyond his subscription.

It will be found by Tefeience to the official census if 1831 and 184], that the average increase of population of the Couniy of Monmouth exceeded that of any other County in England or Wales; this tact i3 referred to asillustrative of the rising impor. tance of the country through which this Railway is intended to pass, and of the rary large passenger traffic whir may reason- ably be calculated upon. The town of \Jsk, ith Ragland, and the rich agricultural district for many miles around, are supplied by carts from the vicinity of Pontypool with Coal and Lime, which aie there ob- tained at a cheap rate, and in return, cattle and provisions of all kinds, hay, corn, and pit timber, to an enormous extent are sent to the Iron Works and Collieries, where the consumption is im- mense. This traffic alone must necessarily ensure a considerable revenue to the Company, independent of the gteat traffic Tom the manufactured iron. me bricks, and paving stone; which is of superior quality. and in great abundance. The present cost of conveying and delivering iron and tin plates from the works to London, including transit to the Port, shipping charges, freight, and insurance, amounts to little less than "2 >s per ton, whilst by this Railway, and those it is intended to join, the average cost at the rate usually charged for such goodson Railways will effect a savIng of at least 25 per cent. and be conveyed within twenty- four hours instead of the average voyage round the Land's End of three, and not untrequently six, weeks, and with the very im- portant advantage of delivering the iion tree frllm rust, which is unavoidable 00 a sea. vù,alte, in small bar., more particularly, causing a deterioration of from 15s. to 20s. per ton at least. this Railway, bv meani of the < hepstow. Forest of Dean, and Gloucester Junction, and the Birmingham and Gloucester Railways, will open Birmingham as maiket for the manufac- tured iton of South Wales, fiom which it has been in a melllUle excluded, from the difficult and expensive transit by the Rivet Severn and Canals. Large quantities of iron ore. known as Hssmateta ore," is imported into Wales fr<,m Lancashire. Cumlierland Devon, and Cornwall whilst ore of a similar quality,and equal productive- ness for iron making, exists in abundance in the Forest of Dean, and may be raised and delivered from thence hy mesns ot V and the (Jhet stow, Forest of Dean, and Gloucester Junct:on Hailway, to the different Inn Works in Vfonmouthshire and Glamotganshire. at an average of from 25 to 30 per cent less than it costs at present, and at the same time leave a handsome remuneration to the Railway Companies. ) he Committee of Management have gone vsry carefully into estimates ot the Goods' Traffic especially, and they feel justified in expressing a decided opinion that the revenue from this source atone will yield 5 per cent, on the proposed Capital of the Com- .pany,in addition to the revenue to be derived from the other traffic. This Railway will pass close to. and within a few miles of, all the Iron and Tin Works of Monmouthshire, and the princi- pal part of those in Glamorganshire; and the following short statistic of the extent of those stupendous undertakings will give an idea of the vast importance of the present project. The Iron and Tin Works commence at Pontypool, and are- 1. The Pontymoile Tin and Iron Works of Capel Hanbury Leigh, Esq. 2. The Blaendare Iron and Coal Works of R. J.

Added to which, in the vicinity, are the extensive Works I and Collieries in the Aberdare Valley. I And on either side of the intended Railway are Collieries j raising and vending ab ut One Mitlion and a Half j ons ot Coal t perAnnum, which it is not unreasonable to expect will be greatly extended by the facilities offeled through the intended Hailway. In the disuicts of Merthyr, Aberdare, and westward, there exists an inexhaustible abundance of fc peculiar description of ( Coal, which, though inflammable, is nearly smokeless, and is found t to be superior in quality for steam purposes to any I yet known. In the London market it meets with a ready sale at 30 per cent. higher th m any of the best North C-'untrv Hartleys, and notwithstanding the hit; h price, so highly is it c e«teemed, that the piesent impoitation amounts to nearly 100 000 tons per annum. 1 his Coal for the most part is brought from a djstance of twenty-four miles, and shipped at Caid ff, I from whence freights to London have averaged Irom X s to 11*. f per ton during the past year. but so uncertain is the supply to I the Metropolis, owing to the scaicity ot ships on the Welsh I coast, and the long and precarious navigation tound the Land's i end, that many who are anxious to adapt their engine grates foi its use, are deterred trom the too great uncertainty which exist- against obtaining a regular and constant supply—these difficult ties will be entirely superseded by the proposed Railway, and rhose it is intended to JOIn, with the gien additional advantage, I and impetus to incleased use and consumption, thttu may be delivered to the consumer at from 2,. to 3s. per ton less price than at present. Under such circumstances, it will not appear unreasonable to those unacquainted with the trade to expect that the consumption in the Metropolis alone will be increased fourfold, whilst a new-found trade will be opened out with Chepstow, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Witney, Oxtoid. and the numerous inlerroedialc town. to London, where steam coal is Jt has been considered more judicious to form a separate Com- pany for the Extension Line from Chepstow to the Taff Vale, than to alter the Chepstow, foreU of Dean, and Gloucestei Junction Railway Company at present, but powers are proposed to be taken for uniting the two Companies hereafter, with the assent of their iespect:ve Boards of Direction. Preference will be given to those locally interested, and to the holders of Shares in the Chepstow, Forest of Dean, and Gloucester Junction Railway. f A reference to the map will shew the importance of the Line as forming a direct Line of Railway communication netweenthe great Mineral District of Monmouthshire and ulamorganshire, with the heart of the Kingdom and London. It may confidently be stated that in connection with the Chepstow, Forest of Dean. and Gloucester Junction RaIlway, there is not a Line of Railroad in the Kingdom which offets greater advanlagello the Shareholders than the present.

The committee rely on the stienu<>us aid and co-operation of those railway com- panies whose line of rail forms part of this undertaking; but to avoid all unctrtainty on this head. it is intended to take ample powers for the ejmpletion of the whole line by the present, as an independent company. It is proposed to construct a branch to Brecon and the several towns in the vicinity of the line, It re lequired, and to take rower to increase ti.e cal ital sutficifint tor that purpose. Looking at the magnitude and importance of the line, and the benefits it will confer to the whole country, but to the puncip*. lity of W ales in patticular, it is expected that thr nobility, gentry, and trading community will, by I heir cordial CII operation, enable the company to make this railway one of the best, the most prosperous, and useful in the kingdom.

THE object of the proposed line is to perfect by thr shortest ) and most eligible route a railway communication between the metropolis of England and Central Wales, and to directly connect tie county towns of Brecon, Monmouth, and Gloucester. Parliament having lately sanctioned the introductio i of rail- way communication into Wales, and passed some important Acts relating to that locality, but not having adequately pro- vided for its depiands, it is intended by this undertaking very materially tö assist in supplying them, and Bills having been passed for connecting Ragland, Monmouth, Ross, &e., with Gloucestershire, and other measures being about to I 3 intro- duced for rendering the railway connection between that county and London shorter and more complete, the uniting Bre —n and intermediate places with the Monmouth line, at the mos. eligible point, seeius much to be desired..1 It is therefore proposed to effect the shortest practicable con- nection between the towns of Brecon, Cnckhoweil Ab&r"ravenny, and Monmouth, and Gloucester, Cheltenham, Oxford, id Lon- don? Sx9d thus attain a communication with the numer IUS rail roads extetraiog to the North and West of England, diverging, at different points, from this direct line of intercourse with the metropolis. Although the present high road traversed by the mails is susceptible of several improvements, yet its general (irection appears to have been wisely selected; and regard being had to the valleys and present populous and wealthy districts in its course, thisftomparatively short and inexpensive line of railway suggests its<ôlt as the natural and best route for periicting a most important link in railway communication. Brecon having increased in importance, by the receru erec- tion of permanent military barracks there, its speedy commu- nication with the Horse Guards will be highly desirable to Government; and the immense mineral and other wealth of the districts to be traversed, and of the contiguous towns of Ponfy pocl and Merthyr Tydvil, manifest not only the superior ad- vantage of this line, but at once mark it out as one nofonly of national importance, but also as a source of considerable profit to the shareholderF. The contemplated lines beyond and through Brecknock will preserve that town as the key-stone for Central Wales; with neither of them will this line prejudicially interfere, but will materially aid their avowed objects. The line will commence near Monmouth, by diverging, at the most eligible point, from the rails of the Herefort Mon- mouth, and Newport lines, and leaving Usk and Pont) the south-west, will run close to the towns of Abergaver. Crickhowell, to a suitable station, at Breton, adopth many miles, the valley of the River Usk, and keeping, as desirable, the line of the present Turnpike Road, use by the two four-horse mails and several other coaches b the above places, avoiding, in its course, interference wi numerous gentlemen's seats it passes, and having due i to, and preserving the beauties of, their rich and ornar giounds, affording every facility to the public for direct railway communication, and preserving the great traffic of central Wales to the line of country through which it has for centuries been conveyed. The objects to be effected by the proposed measure will be— 1st. The affording great accommodation to the public. 2nd. Benefiting the localities it traverses, and enhancing the value of property, as it at present exists. 3rd. Keeping pace with improvements effected in other places. 4th. The best connection with the towns of Brecon, Crick- ] howell, Abergavenny, and Monmouth. 5th. The shortest and most eligible railway communication between the ab "e places and the contiguous neighbourhoods, with Gloucester, Cheltenham, and Oxford; and thereby afford- ing the most expeditious means of conveyance to London. 6th. The opening 0f the ji,ily-9tyled "Garden of Wales" to distant parts, by the construction of a connecting line, at the least possible cost, through the splendid valley of the Usk; whereby travellers from all lines may be attracted; the present traffic increased, and further profit result to the shareholders. 7th. The saving of expense, time, and distance, as compared with the present mode of communication, from Brecon to Lon- don; viz :— Present mail coach route to Gloucester 62 1 Railroad from thence, via Stroud, Swin- >176 don, Dideot, and Reading, to London 114 ) By the proposed line, and thence, by other lines, to Glousester, Cheltenham, Oxford and London direct 160 Thus saving a distance of about 26 miles. 8th. The like betwen Breoon and Oxford, a distance will be saved of about. 39 miles. 9th. Opening to the iron and coal masters, manufacturers, and traders of the traversed districts, and the coatiguous loca- lities of Merthyr Tydvil, Pontypool, &c., a better and cheaper mode of transit for their goods and merchandize, and the intro- duction, at a lower cost, of salt, cattle, artificial manures, and other commercial and Agricultural commodities. These are only some of the important objects this railway will secure to the public generally—and to the counties it tra- verses and unites, in particular. It doubtless will stand h'^h as an investment, the existing traffic being remunerative, and such as will unquestionably increase. That there are no engineering difficulties can confidently be stated. Thi3 fact, independent of the surveys, has been sum- ciently attested by gentlemen residing in the locality, who, from past experience and local knowledge, are best qualified to form a correct opinion. The liability of each shareholder will be restricted by Act of Parliament, to the amount of subscription; and power wi'l be applied for, in the Bill, to allow interest, at four per cent. per annum, on all calls, from the passing of the Act until the open- ing of the line. Applications for shares, in the annexed form (with a banker's or other satisfactory reference), may be addressed to the Provi- sional Committee, at the Offices of the Solicitors, or to any of the Local Agents, or to the following Share Brokers;—Messrs. Peppercorne's, 2, Q1.d Broad-street, London; Messrs. Fletcher and Co., Exchange-buildings, Liverpool. TOBM OF APPLICATION FOR SHARES.

Baileys and Co. rpHIS Company is formed tor the j.unose of carrying into J[ eflect un agreement which has beet concluded with the J[ eflect un agreement which has beet concluded with the Monmouthshire Canal Company for the Purchase and transfer of the whole of the important interests o that extensive and valuable property. „ The Monn.outhshire Canal Company ^#s tirst incorporated ly an Aqt passed in 1793. Two subsequent Acts have extended tne sphere of the Company'* operations, and their present tratrm-ads, communicating with most o» tnt great iron and co-.l works of the district, exceed fifty miles ii length, whilst the extent of their two branches of canal is tweity-two miles. During the last lorty-five years the conce-n has continued to b« one of a highly profitable description, annual dividend paid to the shareholders having beer, during the whole of that period, at the rate of £ 7. 12s perceit., and during the last twenty-five rears tlieavetage annual div'tend liasexceeded £10. per cent., being £ 10. per share on the °rlfnal The value of these shares has, of course, ncreased with the improved divttwU, 1114 tbe purebaw UØW a¡rted. \0 be paid or the whole of the c.ana property is at the rate of JE300. perMare. The purchase will secure to the Monmouthshire Railway Com [.any the whole of tin pies r;t profitable trade of the Canal Company, with the oertiinty cf a very great increase therein, as ttif consequence of the intei/ ed application of the modern principle of railway 'ocoinotive power to the present tram- roadt of the Canal C > n pany. Tl.-a, beyond its trespective advantages, this undertaking is diitinguishable fro,:1 most of t ie numerous projects now be- fore the public in t] is—that en immediate return will arise totht shareholders frm the pre-cnt works of the Canal Com- pany, now in full operition. Fc; a lonj time pas' ;arge surr-1 have been annually expen- ded by the Canal Company insolici improvements oi their pro- perty. The last proje^ied improvement is the formation of a line of railway upon th<; modern construction from Newport to Pont; pool, a distance of ten miles; and to carry out this object an Act of the Legislature passed during the last session, and which railway forms a part of the highly-valuable purchase made by this Company. Although by the Newport au" Pontypool Railway Act a reduction has been made* in the amount of tonnage hitherto payable to the Canal Company, t. j will not lessen the actual value of the property, for it is undeniable that much of the natur .1 traffic of the Company has been diverted into other channels solely in consequence of ihe high standard of the rates of tennage. Tho: recent Act confers on the Company the power which they did not previously possess, of becoming carriers on their lines, and it is only leasorable to calculate that by the judick us use of this power, and the vigorous prosecution of the impro -pmenta of the existing tram-roads, the traffic so alie- nated will be recovered, as well as much new traffic created. Tbua whilst the value of the canal property will be mate- rially t nhanced, the freighter. will at the same time reap all the advanta es designed for them in the recent Parliamentary revision of tonnages. It is furtl proper to state t' it the branch lines intended to have been made and purchasea by the Canal Company to the iron, njal. and other works, wi 1 also be formed thereby secur- ing a considerable increase of tiade upon the main lines. Owing mainly to the obstacles; in the way of cheap and quick transit, the endless resources cf Monmouthshire have as yet been but very partially developed but in the face of these obstacle the quantity of iron now annually exported from Newport is not less than 200,000 tens, and of coal 700 000 tons. The port of Newport possesses an extensive trade in the ex- portation of tin-plate and fire-brick, in the importation of iron ores from Cornwall, Lancashire, and Cumberland, and of the agricultural produce from the western counties of England, together with a considerable and improving trade in foreign and English timber, bark, and Irish provisions. Shares to the amount of} £ 20,000, in tli:: Newport Dock, form part of the purchase of the canal interest. These extensive docks have been constructed in the best possible manner, with a lock capable of admitting vessels of the largest class. In proof of this it may be stated that vessels of 1,080 tons regis- tert d tonnage, have, with ease, entered and been loaded in the dock. The Canal Company have not hitherto afforded any accom- modation whatever to passenger traffic, consequently no revenue has been derived from this usually fertile source of profit, but reference need only be made to the dense resident population engaged in the iron, tin, and coal works of Monmouthshire to prove thr', a very great passenger traffic would be the result of the intrp-juction into these districts of the modem railway facilities. The general extension of railway communication contempla- ted in the neighbouring Jistr" c of Wales and of England, will, in connexion with the Liae of this Company, most ad- vantageously open to Monmouthr jire uninterrupted intercourse with all other portions of the kit gdom. Thus, whilst facilities hitherto unknown, will be created for the exportation of tbe mineral wealth of the locality, the freest admission will be given to the agricultural produce rnd manufactures of other parts of the kingdom, for both of which a constant demand exists in the mineral districts. In thf allotment of shares preference will bo given to pro- prietors in the Monmouthshire Canal, in the Newport, Aber- gavenr. and i^er.Jbrd Railv ay, and to landowners on the line.

HAWKES, Private Tutor, Proj'essorof the Greek and Latin Classics, French, Eirglish, Drawing, &cc., Hcc., BEGS leave respectfully to acquaint the gentry of New- port, and its neighbourhood, that he will give LESSONS Privately, or in Class, in the above departments of literature. The system on which Mr. H. teaches, whilst it ensures a solid and practical improvement in his pupils, dispenses with one half the labour and the time consumed at schools in learning little more than the elementary parts of education. For instance, a respectable and practical knowledge of French might be acquired, with a little industry, in three months, on Mr. H.'s system, when the same amount of information would not he acquired in the usual way in twelve months; and so of the other branches. Numerous testimonials, and references of the highest res- pectability, which can be had on application, attest the uniform success of Mr. H.'s system of teaching. Anv communication addressed to the Misses WILLIAMS'S Boarding School, Clarence-place; or to Mr. C. DESMOND, Grocer, 113, Commercial-street, Newport, will be immediateli" attended to. BRITANNIA.

Among others, he following Important Advantages may be enumerated :— Increasing Rates of Premium ou a new and remarkable plan for securing Loans or Debls; a leu immediate payment being required OIl a Policy for the whole teim of life, than in any other OJJfice Cred^TABLE.— By this Table. tlie Premiums may remain un- paid foi five years upon satisfactory security being ^iveo for the liquidation of the same, at the expiration of that period. HALF CREDIT RATES OF PREMIUM. Persons assured according to these rules, are allowed credit fwithout security) tor half the amount ot Ihe jirst seven Annual Premiums, paying interest thereon at the rate of Five per Cent, per Annum, with the option of paying off the Principal at any time. or having the amount deducted from the sum assured when the Policv becomes a claim.

INVALID, & GENERAL LIFE OFFICE, 25, Pall Mall, London,, 8f 22, Nassau-street, Dublin. SUBSCRIBED CAPITAL £500,1100. THIS Office was established in 1841, and possesses tables I. formed Oil a scientific basis, for the assurance of diseased lives. The urgent necessity for an institution like the present, may be estimated by the statement, that two-thirds of the population are not assurable as healthy lives, and that about one in five of the applicants to other offices is declined on examination. 01 the proposals accepted by this society, during the last three yearn, nearly 300 had been rejected among upwards of 80 other offices. These cases came under the class of the most prevalent diseases, and the various parties could not have participated in the ad- vantages of life assurance, had not this society been in existence, as it i; the only one possessing tabulated rates of premium deduced from extensive data. Premiums have been determined for the assurance of persons at every age, among those afflicted with consumption, asthma, bronchtis, pneumonia, disease of the heart, apoplexy, paralysis, epilepsy, insanity, disease ot the liver, dropsy, scrotula, gout, rheumatism, &c. These circumstances induce the diiectors to believe that by the establishment of this office they have conferred an importam benefit upon those whose condition made such a provision as assurance necessary, and they are therefore led to expect a pow- erful support irom the public. Increased annniiies ate granted on unsound lives. Healthy lives are assured at lower rates than at most other offices, and a capital of hl11111 million sttrling fully subscribed, affords a complete guarantee for the fulfilment of the society's engagements.
