SATURDAY, OCT. 3, 1840. THE improvements, as well as the attrac- tions of Aberystwith, being at all times of paramount importance to any minor consider- ations of a local nature, we naturally feel increased pleasure at witnessing either the progression of the one or the increase of the other. When we last spoke of the projected establishment of a Steam Packet station at this port, we alluded to the improvements in pro- gress in our Harbour; and we are indeed happy to be able now to report of them in a more satisfactory manner than the short space of time which has elapsed since their com- mencement, would have justified any, the most sanguine, in anticipating. In the past week we have been highly pleased at seeing no less than five vessels, three schooners, and two sloops, lying, at one time, alongside the Wharf belonging to the Coal Company, all loaded, one of them with coals for the company, and the other with an eighty-horse steam engine for the Lisburne Mines. We were also much gratified at finding that, in a few tides, they had all discharged their cargoes and left: thus proving the beneficial effects to Owners of Vessels as well as the Public, arising from having a landing wharf, by which the pro- cess of unloading continues uninterruptedly, throughout the day, instead of being confined, under the old system, to unload by means of carts during the few hours of low water and even that being impracticable at periods when there were any freshes in the river. We doubt not that when the deepening of the dock is completed, which from present appearances we may expect will be the case in a very short time, unless the weather should interpose a barrier, we shall have the gratification of seeing that the Traders from Liverpool and Bristol avail themselves of this advantageous plan of dispatching with safety, as well as with econo- my, their several cargoes. Hitherto, also, in addition to the loss of time and the expences which Owners of Vessels have had to submit to, by the delay in the unloading except at the times we have mentioned, persons in the country, as well as tradesmen in the town, have suffered in a pecuniary way by such delay; as it has been not an unfrequent occurrence that gentlemen in the neighbourhood having goods on board of vessels arrived in the Harbour, after a long voyage, have sent their waggons, &c. to Aber- ystwith, in the hopes of at once receiving their goods, when they have had to experience either the mortification of seeing their wag- gons return home empty, or remaining in the town at a great expence until the freshes had subsided. Merchants in the Town, too, having goods for the season, on board, for which there had been a daily demand, have also, after. per- haps having promised to supply such goods immediately on the vessels' arriving in the Harbour, had to incur the loss, as well as the disappointment and displeasure attendant upon the protracted delay in their delivery. Now, or at all events after the completion of the im- provements of the dock, there can be no valid occasion for a repetition of these contingencies, as any weight of cargo can then be shipped or unshipped at any period while lying alongside the wharf. Indeed, on passing a few days ago, we were as much surprised as gratified to find that a large Casting of no less weight than SEVEN TONS AND UPWARDS, in one piece, and also others of four tons each, had been un- shipped at the Wharf in a very few hours; so that the Traders we have mentioned, will not, we think, have any reason to doubt the efficiency of the means supplied for the greater dispatch of business. We were also glad to see that another transporting buoy, in addition to the one we noticed some weeks ago, has been laid down to the southward of the entrance of the harbour, in four fathoms low water in spring
