MINING INTELLIGENCE. NORTH WALES SLATE COMPANY.-Tlie large and increasing demand for slate of all kinds, for every description of architectural, commercial, domestic, and agricultural employment, renders any undertaking for the working of slate quarries of considerable in- terest. A company, under the above title, has just been formed, under very promising auspices, for working the Gaewern and Idris Quarries, situate in the neighbourhood of Minfordd, in the county of Merioneth. The former is held on a lease, of which 39 years are unexpired, at a yearly rental of £110, and occupies a surface of about 100 acres. The prospectus states, that the present open- ings and machinery are capable of producing 120 tons of slates, and 120 tons of slabs per month; and that, with a small outlay, those quantities may be doubled. The ldris Quarry is held direct from the crown, at a yearly rental of £ 1, and the usual royalty for a term, of which nearly 21 years are unexpired, extending over a surface of 220 acres, with a plentiful supply of water from Lake Arren, for purposes of power. Roth these quarries are of a highly promising character the Gaewern has been in operation several years, and large sums have been expended, placing it in a highly advantageous position and it is believed they can compete with the most favoured in Wales, having only seven miles of land carriage to the shipping place. The present proprietors consent to accept, as consideration, by far the greater portion in shares, which are to be 50,000, at £ 1 each, forming a capital amply sufficient for efficiently working the concern, after the construction of the necessary new works. The present proprietors have agreed to: forego any interest, until a dividend of 15 per cent. has been paid on the shares held.
