NEWCASTLE-EMLYN CHANGES ITS NAME. To the Editor of THE JOURNAL. SIR,-This thriving little town has felt great and growing inconvenience owing to the similarity of its name to that of Newcastle on-Tyne and all the other Newcastles. In consequence the accom- paning memorial was sent to the Great Western Railway Company, signed by nearly all the business people of the place and district. Feeling on the subject was unanimous. The county councils of Cardiganshire and Carmarthenshire are taking the matter up. It is one of those small useful reforms which can do no harm to anyone, and will save much worry and delay. We shall b* much obliged if you will kindly insert the enclosed in your valli- able paper. The more public the movement is made the better.—We are, &c., THE INHABITANTS OF EMLYN. 23rd January,1891. Appended are copies jof the communications referred to:- To the Great Western Railway, Company. November, 1890. We, the undersigned, inhabitants of Newcastle- Emlyn, and others interested, petition your board of directors to call the station about to be made at Newcastle-Emlyn Emlyn," leaving out the New- castle." Our parcels, luggage, goods, and letters some- times go astray to Newcagtle-on- ryne, Newcastle- under-Lyme, Newcastle (Glamorganshire), New- castle (Ireland), Little Newcastle (Pembrokeshire), and have been known to be 3ent to some of the Newcastles in America and the colonies. The opening of railway communication affords an opportunity for effecting this much wisbed-for simplification of name, The place was formerly known as the Hamlet of Emlyn. [Signed fty nearly all the business men in the place and district ] [Copy of Ansvver from Post-office.] Cheltenham, 30th December, 1890. SIR,-I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 29th. I think it will suffice, if the petition you refer to is forwarded to the Post- master .General, for if it is shown that the inhabit- ants of Newcastle-Emlyn intend to alter the name of their town to "Emlyn," I do not suppose the Department will throw any difficulties in the way.
