SATURDAY, SEPT. 26, 1840. WE published two or three weeks ago some remarks on the advantages not only to Aber- ystwith, but to the County generally, which would be derived by the removal of the Spring Assizes, from Cardigan to this Town. We have received a letter from a correspondent in Radnorshire, which we this week publish in another part of our paper, pressing upon the parties concerned the propriety of following the example of our neighbours in Montgomeryshire, which we understand, from his letter, to mean tiat we should not neglect to "agitate, agitate, agitate," until the desired end be attained. low really this may, and we believe it to be Nery necessary advice, but perhaps the giving publicity to the sentiments of this writer, (dthough of course we are not responsible for afo the opinions of our correspondents) will save us the ungracious task of recurring week after week to a subject, which of course more immediately concerns the Owners of property in the neighbourhood, and in a far greater degree, than it can ourselves, or any others who, like us, do not possess in the place the fee simple of "a rood of land to grow a cabbage on." We have heard it hinted that opposition, however, would be likely to be made to any application for an order in Council for the removal of the Assizes from Cardigan; at this we are, cer- tainly, not surprised; the opposition however, which has been suggested, reminds us of an application to Parliament for a private Bill to erect a bridge over a navigable River in a very great thoroughfare, when the only Petitioner to Parliament against the Bill was the FERRY- MAN. Notwithstanding all the opposition whichmay be offered, to measures conceived in good spirit for the general welfare of the place, we need not doubt that whatever is really required for upholding or promoting the interests of the Town and Neighbourhood will eventually be achieved. We confidently refer to the progress which has been made in the improvements of Aberystwith during the last 7 years, but par- ticularly during the last 3 years in corrobora- tion of this assertion. At the former period, we had neither water nor light: we have now a Reservoir by which the Town is well sup- plied with water; and by the erection of Gas Works, it is also supplied with the best de- scription of light, at the same time rendering a profitable return for the Capital invested in such works, with every probability of an increase in the profits of that undertaking, as the expences necessary on the establishment of a Work of this nature will not have to be in- curred a second time. The Roads too in the vicinity of Aberystwith are now in an unex- ceptionable state, and the annoyances which seven years ago were the cause of well-deserved censure, are now almost entirely removed under the direction of the Commissioners under our Improvement Act. It is true great improve- ments remain to be effected in what may be termed the fashionable part of the Town; we
has always been a favorite one with the King, influ- enced by Home, not Foreign, alarms, and it is quite possible that with his usual shrewdness, Louis Philippe may have seized this opportunity of realizing his de- signs, the execution of which would have been impos- sible had circumstances not enabled him to make a Cat's-paw of Monsieur Thiers.
