The object proposed is to make a direct communication be- 1 tween Leominster, Bromyard, and Worcester, which latter P town bus always been the natural market for the produce of these districts, and to afford the inhabitants the most direct communication with London, as compared with other lines, by upwards of 30 miles. a No person will be liable for more than his deposit till the act 1 is obtained, and power will be applied for to allow interest at P X4 per centum on all calls from the time of their respective pay- ments, as well as to limit the liability of the shareholders to the 0 amount of their subscriptions. 4 Applications for shares, in the annexed form. to be made tn the v Provisional Committee. at the office, 5, Gresham-street, London, a or Messrs.

This line of railroad will form the shortest possible route te Liverpool, Manchester, and the northern counties, from the po- pulous and important portion of South Wales included in the counties of Glamorgan, Carmarthen, and Pembroke. in which are situated several important sea ports, and extensive copper, jfon, tin plate, chemical, and other works, also potteries, col- lieries. &c., and the Government Dock-yard of Pembroke and will afford nearly the same advantages to the whole Principal.ty. It will pass through the centre of an extensive country famous for the breeding 01 catile for the supply of the English markets, and through districts containing many lead, copper, and other mines, which, owing to the want of an outlet, have hitherto been neglected; and it will atloid to the whole country great conve- nience and facility of communication, well calculated to increase its importance. The easy and direct communication by this route with the south ot Ireland will be evident, and prove the means of consi- derable traffic for goods, cattle, corn, and passengers. Whether taken as an expeditious mode of conveying the valu- able manufactures of South Wales, and its large supplies ot oattle and corn, as well as those from the south of Ireland to Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, and the central and nor- thern parts of England and Scotland, or as the ready means ot supplyingthe various manufactures of the north, toreign imports, and shop goods, to the various towns and districts partaking of the advantages of the lioe, of. as an easy and agreeable transit, for the tourist, to the far-famed beauties of Noith and South Wales, and the new field open to the trading community; it must, in a commefcial, agricultural, and national point of view, be considered as one 01 the most important railways in the kingdom, compared with which all other railway schemes tor Wales. however useful they may be in their several localities, ate but of secondary importance. The hne will be taken in a direct course, with scarcely any deviation. The country presents lew engineering difficulties I he importance of the undertaking would, however, justly a more than average expenditure if it were necessary; and when the great saving of distance is considered which will be effected from the towns of Swansea, Neath, Llanelly,Tenby, Pembroke, Haverfordwest, Carmarthen, Newport. Cardigan, Aberystwith, aod the whole of these districts, and the important manufactur. ing locality of Merthyr Tydvil, in the journey to Liverpool, to Birmingham, and the midland counties, it will be obvious that no narrow views as to expenditure ought to stand in the way of makmg this railroad as direct and efficient as possible. As the line will traverse a part of the country not hitherto pos- sessing the same facilities of commerce as other portions of the kingdom, a continually increasing trade, far beyond the usual multiplication of tiaffic shown ordinarily to be the effect of rail- way communication, may be calc-ulated upon. The committee rely nn the strenuous aid and co-operation of those railway com- panies whose line of rail fo<ms part of this undertaking; but to avoid all uncertainty on this head, it is intended to take ample powers for the completion 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, wh. re required, and to take power to increase tl.e caj ital sufficient for that purpose. Looking at the magnitude and importance of the hne, and the benefits it will confer to the whole country, but to the principa- lity of Wales in particular, it is expected that the nobility, gentry, and trading community will, by their cordialco-oppration, enable the company to mak6 this railway one of the best, the most prosperous, and useful in the kingdom. The late successful demonstiation of the atmospheric principle on the Croydon Railway, has led the committee to have the line surveyed with a view to the adoption of either system of traction, when it shall have been fully ascertained which is the best adapted to this line. Until an act of Parliament shall be obtained, the alfiiirs of the company shall be under the control of the Committee of Ma- nagement, who are empowered to enter into such arrangements is shall best serve the interests of this company. Power will be taken under the act to limit the responsibility of ihareholders to the amount of their subscription, and to allow interest at 4 per cent. upon the calls. Preference in the allotment of shares wIll be given to those to. cally interested, and to the shareholders of connecting lines. The Parliamentary contract and subscribeis agreement will be ready for signature on payment of the deposits Applications for shares, in the usual form, to be made at the office of the Com- pany, to the solicitois, at 18, St. Paul's Churchyard, or to the following agentt aud stock and share brokers, viz., London Agents—Messrs.

Glamorgan Central Mineral Railway. PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEM ENT. Capital, .£500,000" in 25,000 Shares, of £20. each. Deposit, £2. per Share. THIS Line of Railway (which is proposed by the Duffryn- JL Llynvi, and Perth Cawl Railway Company), will embrace the richest mineral field in the Principality, lying chiefly in the Hundreds ot Newcastle and Ogmore, and com- prising a district of about ten miles square, abounding with Coal of the best quality, also with Argillaceous and Black Band Iron Ore. It is proposed to construct this Railway in the most efficient manner, to carry a branch line up each of the mineral valleys into which the district is divided, to connect them into one t Trunk line near Bridgend; and to enlarge the present harbour of Porth Cawl (which is about midway between Cardiff and i Swansea), into a commodious port adapted to the extensive traffic contemplated. It is intended, for the convenience of passengers, to connect i the main line with the South Wales Railway at two different points towards Cardiff and Neath; which will also afford faci- lities of shipment at the various ports, accessible bv the South Wales line. A detailed prospectus, with the names of an influential com- l mittee, will shortly be submitted to the public, when it will be seen that no line of railway yet projected offers greater advan- f tages in the way of investment, or opens such an inexhaustible field of mineral wealth. Further information may, in the mean time, be obtained of Mr. WILLIAM LEWIS, Solicitor, Bridgend; and Messrs. ROWLAND, HACON, and ROWLAND, Solicitors, Thread- needle-street, London.

In the latter ne.ghbourhood the want of coal ia much lelt. Imprcve- ] meot in nade, inc eased profits to mining establishments and ( manufactureis, the more ready iuterchange of food for the pro- ducts of the mines and general addition to prosperity, must !o'- low from the construction of this line, which has the merit of ] clashing with no other project, and of being strongly sought after t and recommended by existing interests. ] This line will leave the main line at Glasbury, from whence it ] will run in an almost direct course along the banks of the Dunvy j River through Talgarth by Llangose Lake, crossing the river j Usk at a mest favourable point; it will then intersect the popu- j lous ueighbourhood of I alybont, and, alter striking the valleys a of the Glyn and Taaffechan, terminaie ai Merthyr I idvil. The necessary connection of th" line with the laff Vale and South Wales Railways will be obvious. A short branch from the Glyn VaFey will connect the line with the great iron works and mineral districtsof Strhowy,Trede- gar, and Rhymney; and, by means of the Tredegar Railway, connect it also with the important town and port ot Newport. It may be lematked that this line has long been called for by the l..cal wants of the districts affected by its progress, and was surveyed many years since by an eminent engineer (the late George Oveiton, Esq., who planned the first railway for loco- motive power in the kingdom). The length of the line will be about twenty miles. In the allotment of shares (which will take p'ace at the earliest J possible moment on account of the necessity of being prepaied for the ensuing Session of Parliament) prefeience will be given to partie3 locally interested in the line, and to Scrip Holders in the Gloucester and Aberystwith Railway Company.

BOROUGH OF NEWPORT. Valuable Freehold Property. TO BE SOLD BY AUCTION, At the TOWN HALL, on SATURDAY, the 11TH day of OCTOBER next, at Five o'clock in the Afternoon ALL that Building situate on OLD GREEN, in the above town, for many years used as an ENGINE HOUSE together with the COOPER'S SHOP adjoining thereto. From its contiguity to the probable scites of the Stations of the South Wales and the Monmouthshire Railway Companies and the property lying within a few yards of the Monmouth- shire Canal, it is obvious that there are few more eligible scites for the erection of a Warehouse or Offices; and when the dif- ficulty of obtaining Freehold Land in Newport is taken into consideration, it is evident that such an opportunity for invest- ment of Capital is seldom offered. For further particulars, apply to the Town Clerk, T. WOOLLETT, Esq., at whose Office Plans of the Premises may be seen. MONMOUTHSHIRE. FOR SALE BY AUCTION, By Mr. WILLIAM DAVIS.

THE NEW FisriEiiiEs ACTS.—Considerable dismay, which we are glad to have fhf nower of dispelling, prevails amongst anglers in consequence of parcgiaphs that have crept into some of the 11 public journals, stating that an act had passed during the last session of pailiament regulating the river fisheries of England, and making it unlawful to angle for fresh water fish after the 13th instant, and penal to have in one's possossion, at any time, trout under seven inches in length. No such art had passed lust session—in fact no act respecting fishing in English rivers. The only fisheries acts that have passed are, first, An act for the amendment of an act of the sixth year of her present Majesty, for regulating the Irish fisheries," and secondly, "An act to pre- vent fishing for trout and other fresh water fish by nets in the rivers and waters of Scotland." Anglers, therefore, may go on as they have lutherlo done, and angle for grayling, pike, roach, perch, chub, &c., recollecting, however, that in the Thames, at least, it is illegal to catch trout after the 131h ult., and in all other rivais, destructive ani unspcr smanlike,for now is the spawn- ing season of that fi.h. j
FOREIGN mmiGEM K. h UNITED STATES. I ARRIVAL OF THE CALEDONIA. I LIVERPOOL, SUNDAY.—The royal mail steamer Caledonia/? Captain E. G. Lott, arrived in the Mersey to-day, at noon>I: hearing the usual mails, and about fifty passengers. She left Boston on the 10th instant, and Halifax on the lhth ult., and has, therefore, made the whole voyage in 114 days, deducting her stay at Halifax. There is no account of any hostilities having taken place at the seat of war," as Texas is termed in the United State* papers; the rumours of large Mexican armies marching to- wards that country appear to be purely fictitions, whilst the. emptiness of the Mexican Treasury, and the impossibility o £ getting a loan, are realities, not to "be overcome in an occasion where the feelings of tbe people are little in unison with th« wishes of their rulers. From all accounts the sole preventive that exist? against a war between the two countries is the wanl of money on the part of Mexico. In the meantime the county is in great disorder, and the province of Tobasco, taking adv tage of the opportunity, have revolted, and declared their inde'I pendence. The American forces in Texas have been suffered] to concentrate and establish their position, undisturbed by any! attack at Corpus Christi, described as one of the healthiest and' most beautiful spots in the world. It was said that General' Taylor will occupy this position for about two months, aud, illl ease the Mexicans, in the mean time, take no measures of deci" sive attack, that they will then move forward to the mouth aad\ borders of the Rio Grande, and will establish that as the boaii'f dary line between the two countries. The Washington Union, however, says Letters havebeefl • received from the capital of Mexico to the 30th July. They had; great doubts whether the Congress would pass the declaration) of war, and whether they would not consider their previous avowals in relation to annexation as tantamount to a declara- tion, and whether they would not attempt to strike at us with" out a declaration. It is confidently said that they are sending; all the troops they could despatch to the frontier with that vieW/t General Felasola to be com maude. -in-chief." 1S' ^owever, is probably merely one of the numerous sur'i H w.10 fiave heen started, though some weight has beew or"a i e °n account its appearing in the government General Heerera hai been elected President of Mexico, and»| new cabinet iormed The loan of fifteen millions of dollar^ which the Congress had voted, seemed not likely to be realised." so low was the rate of interest.

I am sure, comrades, that those presumptuous Americans will he greatly disappointed when they find that our soldiers are not so contemptible as they thought, and that they cannot conquer them.

We have letters of the 8th and 10th from our Constantinople correspondent. Ihe former contains an account of the granting! of the firman for the church of Jerusalem, for which our cori respondent, with reason, assigns much credit to Sir Stratford Canning. The letter of the 10th gives an account of a strange affair, itfj which the French ambassador to the Porte is at present en" gaged. Some time since, during the unhappy war which wa$. then raging between the Druses and the Maronites, a priest) under French protect'on, was killed during an attack made b^ the Druses on the village oi Abeya. A Druse chief was accused of being the author of the priest's death, and the French consu| at Beyrouth required of the Turkish authorities, that the chief should be put to death without trial. Such a preposterous demand was very properly refused; but the Turks offered to trf the chief before the proper tribunals, and if he were then founa guilty, to punish him according to the law. It would naturallf be expected that this reasonable offer would be considered' satisfactory, but it appears not. The French Ambassador at ■Constantinople has followed up the demand made by the Consul, and not only insists that the man should be executed without trial, but threatens, in case of refusal, to enforce hi^ demand. If anything could add to the wonder excited bi such extraordinary conduct on the part of the representative 01 a civilised power, it is that the accused person is said to b* perfectly innocent of the crime, and that the priest in question fell fairly in the field of battle. Should the accounts which W< have received of this affair turn out to be correct, we have n1! hesitation in saying that the conduct of the French represen' tatives in Turkey is disgraceful to the country whose interest* they are sent to protect, and that it even reflects discredit upof European civilization in general. SPAIN. The Madrid papers of the 21st are still filled with comment on the marriage project, lbii't tii^r give no additional facts, an'' only place beyond a doubt the fact that the French Court V' carrying the matter triumphantly through. The list of the Council of State, which has been promised cot some time, is on the eve of being published. It is said that Burgos will be the vice-pi esident, and that among the member9 will be the Duke de Fnas, the Marquess de Viluma, the Marquess de Miraflores, MM. Aylon, Olivun, &c. It will be seen by the letter of our Madrid correspondent that our Ministry has been nicely deceived by the Spaniards* with respect to the slave dopot at Havannah. On a promiso that a depot on shore would be given our Government wOO induced to withdraw the receiving vessel, which we had several years in the harbour of Havannah. Now, however, i' > appears that General O'Donnell, the governor, refuses to giv" the promised uepot, and the Spanish home Government denie' having given any positive orders on the subject. It is to b* seen whether Lord Aberdeen will submit to be thus trifled with The Duke de Rianzares has returned to Madrid from Pari" where, with M, Donozo Cortes, he went to arrange the raarriag' question, with Lotus Philippe in pwion. e in person. 1
