BRECON TOWN COUNCIL AND BOARD OF HEALTH MEETINGS. These meetings took place on Monday last, at the Council Chambers, in the Town Hall, when the following gentlemen were presentJohn Davies, Esq., mayor, in the chair. Councillors—Messrs. John Morris, Doctor Lucas, T. Trew, Alfred A. Walton, and W. De Winton, Esq. The Mayor informed the Board that the Town Clerk was not present in consequence of his beinf engaged on very important business of the Board! The minutes of the last meeting were read by Mr. Richard Hargest. The only question arising from the minutes, was that of new postal arrangements, and The Mayor said that Mr. Alderman Thomas had stated that Mr. Thomas Wood, who had great in- fluencev at Paddington, in connection with the Railway Companies, and had expressed a desire to do all that laid in his power to improve the postal arrangements at Brecon. According to the request of the Board, Mr. Thomas, Mr. Walton, and him- self, (the Mayor,) had waited upon Mr. Henshaw to ask him if earlier and later trains could not be ran OH the Hereford and Brecon line for that pur- pose. His reply was that he did not consider it I would be beneficial to the inhabitants of the town to run an earlier train, that they did not get up early enough, and appeared to appreciate the 6-45 I j train from Hersford more than the 8-10, btit that he should be happy to do anything that may prove generally advantageous to the neighbourhood. He (the Mayor) saw by advertisements, that the Brecon and Hereford trains did not run into Barr's Court Station, which was a great convenience to the pub- lie, but stopped at the station called Moorsfleld; this caused great inconvenience to thorough pas- sengers, and was of great importance it appears that this company was obliged to do so in conse- quence of the very extortionate charges made by the other companies. As Mr. Thomas Wood had great influence in railway matters, he thoughtt great deal might be done in getting the railway arrangements much improved at Hereford, and have a thorough communication, instead of buss it from one station to the other, when there existed a railway communication right through. Dr. Lucas informed the Board that Mr. Thomas Wood would be in Brecon on the morrow (Tuesday), end it was agreed that some of the members of the Board should wait upon him to explain those mat- ters, and endeavour to get them altered.
