SATURDAY, SEPT. 19, 1840. We return this week to the consideration of the very important subject of the establishing a Steam-packet Station at this Port. The in- creased importance which Aberystwith has, of late years, derived, and, by the improve- ments of its harbour, erection of the Pier, &c. is daily deriving, as a place of trade, as well as of pleasure, seems to demand that a Steam communication between Aberystwith and Bristol, and Aberystwith and Liverpool, in alternate weeks, should be established. Indeed it is an almost universal question of the Visitants to Aberystwith, on inspecting the Pier, "when will there be a Steam-packet from Aberyst- with" there being at present no means of making excursions along the beautiful coast. Independently of the advantage to be de- rived by the facility which a steam communi- cation would furnish for the transit of mer- chandize, as well as passengers, from Bristol and Liverpool, a Steamer would be able, with any thing like favourable weather, to touch at the different adjacent Ports, such as Cardigan, Fishguard, Milford haven, Tenby, Swansea, &c. on the South, and Carnarvon, Holyhead, or the Menai Straits, Bangor, Beaumaris, &c. on the North; and although the beauty of the land scenery which the Tourist now enjoys in his route to Aberystwith may surpass any he may have ever seen, we are confident he will not be the less delighted with our stupendous mountains viewed from the sea; whilst the mo- notony consequent on arriving at and departing from Aberystwith by the same route, would be got rid of. We have mentioned a trip to the North and to the South, but we must also beg to call the attention of our gentle and un- gentle readers to the Sister Isle; Dublin being only ,95 miles distant from us, and from the nearest point in Ireland we are only distant 75 miles. Between Dublin and Aberystwith, tak- ing a southerly line across the sister Coast, we could touch at Wicklow, Arklow, Wex- ford, and either proceed from thence direct to Aberystwith, or, as circumstances might re- quire, touch at Milford haven, Fishguard, and Cardigan, and thence to this Port. These points have all, we believe, been ad- mitted to be practicable; but hitherto an obstacle has presented itself to the establish- ment of a Steam-packet station arising from the want of a proper landing place for passen- gers, &c. Even at the present moment that obstacle is partially removed, and the work of deepening the Dock, which is now in progress, will, when completed, admit of steam vessels coming alongside of the Aberystwith Coal Company's premises, where, a Crane being al- ready fixed, every facility is offered for the landing of heavy goods, and a safe and conve- nient landing for passengers, as well as merchan- dize, is provided, close to one of the principal thoroughfares of the Town. Should an ob- jection be urged on the ground that in Neap tides a Steamer would be delayed some time before she would be able to come in, it may be replied that the erection of a landing jetty near to the South end of Ro Fawr, would dispose of this difficulty. The expence of this jetty would not be heavy, and passengers might then
principal points and headlands round the coast:— St. Abb's-head, Flamborough, North Foreland, the en- trances to the Bristol Channel and the Clyde, and on the south coast of Ireland. The Trinity Company have so far countenanced this undertaking as to grant per- mission to erect telegraphs on the sites of their lands occupied by the lighthouses at Flamborough Head and the North Foreland, where the proper stations have in fact, been commenced. The reduction of postage, it is obvious, will prove an important element in the completion of these arrangements, which could hardly have gone on at all under the heavy tax which the old rates imposed, and they will thus add another to the numerous benefits derived, in spite even of imper- fect management, from that measure. A small sub- scription annually from each vessel which is to connect itself with these arrangements, with the purchase of a set of flags, make up the whole expence to be incur- red and the system is already in use to some extent, as it is said, but more particularly in the United States.
