THE ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SHOW. The machinery aid implements which are to he exhibited and tried at the f.r!lic..mi«g show are now arriving at Cardiff with great rapidhy. Delayed until further delay would b3 dangerous, makers are com- pressing into a few days a quantity of work winch would not be easy if spread over a. month. Special trains on the three great railway lines are making up for the time they have been the losers of, and hurrying into Cardiff immense cargos, of huge weight, and tre- mendous size. The scene now at the Cathays Station of tee Tatf Vale Railway, is such a sight as is rarely afforded Cardiff people. The "rush" with- out confusion, the bustle without bother that were visible there yesterday morning were con- vincing testimony of the foresight of the Taff Vale hailway Company, and evidence of the completeness of their arrangements,—arrangements which have entailed a cost that must, make the company the losers. trains came filing in one after another, a length of £ ioa:)ir.g wagous was shunted here, a dozen heavily tracks wen* seat there, find, by a system "trained to perfection, in an incredibly short time the trucks were emptied, and again shuntedoutof ih* way About ]¡ü,1f-past ten a special Midland train, laden with • machinery and implements, enmo in. It was immediately divided up mto Lngths, and while some of the wagons were ran under a lOW of cranes in the eastern side of the line, another was driven up alongside the extensive platforiy which has been constructed, others containing -nearer machinery, locomotives, traction en<diie« being taken up to a dock," whose 'surfaco°wn,s'leve1' with the bottom of the truck, and is earned down to the roadway by an inclined plain. Directly the track -got under the crane, the contents—whHi mHit be a steam plough or a reaping machine, or a turnip cutter -were hoisted lowered mto a wagon, and driven awav. Over at the platform u was much the same, except that cranes were not so frequentiy required, the lighter na- tore of he-goods and the equality of the two levels making translnpment easy. The "special" consisted of loOwagons, andyet it was unloaded and the goods sent away by dinner time Altogether, it was estimated that 300 wagons were unloaded yesterday, and between this and tjio end of the week it is believed that upwards of lfiCO more loads will call upon the exertions of the officers to tranship. There are represented at tins tem- porary station the four compares engageLl in the carriage of goods, and all work togellier in the greatest harmony, the spirit of emulation—which mig-ht be naluriil in sucli a c.se-being sunk in the "united -effort to get the articles consigned to the show tran- shipped, and sent there in the shortest possible time.
