NEW DAILY PAPER FOR THE WEST OF ENGLAND AND SOUTH WALES. PRICE ONE PEN NT. THE WESTERN MAIL. The rapidly increasing wealth and importance of the great district on either side of the Bristol Channel impera- tively demand a corresponding development of press or. ganization. This necessity is more especially felt through. out South Wales, where a district containing upwards of half a million inhabitants has as yet but a single daily paper. That any one Journal, however ably conducted, can either adequately represent the numerous and complicated interests of the district, or properly examine, in all their various aspects, the many-sided questions of Imperial policy, is in itself obviously impossible. Equally obvious is the disadvantage at which such duties are performed by a paper appearing only at weekly intervals. The want thus felt THE WESTERN MAIL aims to supply and so far as can be done by an energetic direction, a powerful Staff, and an ample Capital, it trusts to do so effectively. The principles of THE WESTERN MAIL may be stated in very few words. Its first watchword is a hearty loyalty to the Church of England, not only as the National Church of the United Kingdom, but as in herself the best and purest of all living branches of the great Church of Christ. Its second, is the British Constitution, the parent of British power and prosperity, the only known form of government under which power can never degenerate into oppression, or freedom into licence. These principles it will be the endeavour of THE WESTERN MAIL to carry out with equal firmness and moderation. In Religious matters it will avoid, as far as possible, all questions of dootrine, and especially of con- troversy. These are not topics within the province of a daily paper. It will deal in a friendly spirit with all questions affecting Nonconforming communities, and will not consider the steady maintenance of its own principles in any way incompatible with a courteous and cordial respect for those who conscientiously oppose them. In Politics it will equally eschew all unnecessary bitter. ness and personality aiming rather to convince than to coerce, seeking points of agreement rather than of diffe- rence, and not easily deterred by every little variance of opinion from hearty co-operation for the common good. These being the principles by which the policy of THE WESTERN MAIL will be guided, neither pains nor expense will be spared to render the Literary and News Departments as perfect as money and care can make them. A powerful staff of writers, reporters, and agents is already engaged, and will be increased and varied as occasion may demand. The fullest, latest, and most reliable intelligence will be given on all points of public interest, wholly irrespective of all party considerations; whilst a similar impartiality will be strictly observed in all its Reporting arrangements. Finally, the WESTERN MAIL'S special attention will be directed towards the supply of all such information as may tend to promote and develope the Commercial I terests of its constituents. A City Article by a Londo writer of first-rate ability and information will appear in each issue, and will give full particulars of all transactions up to the final close of business on the preceding evening. The latest Market Reports will be regularly collected from all parts of the country immediate notice will be given of all arrivals, departures and other items of Ship- ping Intelligence, and every occurrence affecting the Ship- ping or Mercantile Interests of the District will be instantly reported by the able correspondents specially retained for that purpose at every important point around the Coast. Cheques, and Post Office Orders to be made payable to Mr. ABEL NAD1N, Western Mail Office, St. Mary-street, Cardiff, to whom all business commanioationB respecting this paper should be addressed.

The Directors draw special attention to the fact that the next bonus valuation will take place at the end of the year 1872, and that all policies effected on the profit scales prior to the 31st December, 1869, will be entitled to participate in the same. TbeDirectorsalso draw special attention to the successful establishment during the past year of the Britannia Fire Association, under the auspices of the Briton. The Di- rectors believe that the establishment of a Fire Company, to work in active co-operation with the Life, will tend much to the advantage and profit of both institutions. It is scarcely necessary to remark that the capital funds and constitution of each office are quite separate and distinct. By order of the Board, (JOHN MESSENT, Actuary and Secretary.
