STATEMENT FOR PERUSAL. THE Directors request the attention of the pub- lic to the following statement, regarding the position of this undertaking. The act, to make the line from Abergavenny to Crickhowell, was obtained in 1864. It was sup- ported by a fair local subscription, evincing the earnest desire of the inhabitants generally to obtain the line. A contractor having come forward, and offered to make the line without local assistance, those subscriptions were not at that time called for, but circumstances beyond control, afterwards de- feated that arrangement. In 1865, applications were made to Parliament for certain extensions, then deemed necessary to complete the system, but those applications were unsuccessful; and then came the rapid tightening of the money market, followed by the panic, and crash, in May, 1866 so that the contractor was unable to make his arrangements to commence the line. cl An act was obtained in July, 1866, authorising the extension of the Railway to Brecon but by that time, the effects of the crisis had so far ex- tended to railway property, as to render it impos- sible to obtain money for contractors' lines," upon any terms and after some delay, and nego- tiation, it was seen to be necessary to abandon the first contract. Various negotiations and treaties, which need not be here detailed, have since been resorted to, for getting the line made independently of local efforts, but without effect and the Directors are satisfied, that it will be impossible, in the present day, or for many years to come, to get this line made, without hearty local co-operation. It follows, therefore, that unless possession can be got of the necessary land, upon easy terms, and the original subscription list, which amounted to nearly i'6.000, can be revived, and augmented to the extent of about Ten Thousand Pounds, no al- ternative will be left to the Directors, but to pro- ceed in November next, to protect themselves against ultimate loss, by obtaining parliamentary authority, to abandon the line, and to repeal the acts, obtained at so much labour and cost. The Directors, however, hope better things than this, from the pluck and enterprise of their friends and neighbours and they think the ardent lunging which is felt for the line, will prompt one final effort to obtain it. A responsible contractor is ready to make the line from Abergavenny to Crickhowell for a sum of about X:30,000, and to take about £10,000, of that sum in the ordinary shates of the Company, provided that he is put in possession of the land, and is shown a local subscription list equal in amount to the shares he takes, viz., about < £ 10,000. All tie persons who have claims against the company, in respect of the preliminary expenses for obtaining the act, have consented to forbear those claims until the line is made from Aber- gavenny to Ciickhowell, so that the Diiectors are enabled to guarantee to subscribers that every shilling of the money they subsciibe, shall be ex- pended in the construction of the line. The Directors will do all in their power to make the calls at as long intervals, and as little burden- some to the subscribers, as they possibly can. Calls can only be made, under the act, at intervals of three months, and no more than one-fith of a share can be called at one time. The Directois feel satisfied, that when the line is once made, and opened to Crickhowell, little difficulty will be found in providing the means to extend it to the junction at Talvbont. The Directors commend these remarks to the earnest considerations of those interested, and trust that the general feeling of the necessity for this line, and the public spirit of the landowners and inhabitants will avert the humiliating step of having to proceed in November next, to abandon the undertaking. The Directors will make a personal canvass of the neighbourhood for support, and they trust that 11 their efioits will be cordially responded to by all classes. G. A. A.
