SATURDAY, OCT. 10, 1840. WE feel such a desire for the prosperity of Aberystwith, than which a more delightfully healthy place cannot, by possibility, be found, that we feel constrained to draw attention, by every possible means, and at the risk of being deemed guilty of continually harping upon one string, to any improved plan either of increas- ing the legitimate attractions of the place or of preserving those we at present possess, which experience, or an observation of what is pass- ing around us, may suggest as being practica- ble as well as desirable. We last week brief- ly alluded to the want of a society for the preservation of the fish in our rivers Ystwyth and Rlieidol and we stated, farther, that the non-preservation of these rivers was the cause of repeated remark by gentlemen visitors of Aberystwith, who are fond of the amusement of fishing, and for whose recreation, as we then observed, we ought to feel bound to use every effort. At this period of the year, when we are permitted to enjoy a delightful autumn, gentlemen sojourning at Aberystwith, not having any shooting in the neighbourhood, are anxious to avail themselves of such out-door exercise as the locality furnishes; but when they find that almost the only amusement, na- tural to the place, if we may so speak, cannot be enjoyed for want of its preservation, they very justly complain of our neglect. A short time back a society did exist in Aberyst- with for the conservation of the rivers, but which has lately fallen into disuse. Our neighbours, however, seeing the importance of the matter, have taken it into their serious consideration; and we find that the fishery of the River Dovey is f. rthwith to be preserved under the sanction of Sir W. W. Wynne; Sir Watkins's Auditor R. G. Parry, Esq., taking the management into his own hands. We find also that this is not a solitary instance, for it appears that at the ensuing quarter ses- sions to be holden at Usk, Counsel will be in- structed to make application to the Court to appoint proper and experienced persons as con- servators on the rivers of Monmouthshire, the Usk, Wye, and Munnow; as will be seen by a paragraph in another part of our paper. The proprietors of the fisheries on the Severn, too, are becoming alive to this object; and when we see that the parties who have taken up the subject are the chief landed proprietors in their respective counties, we can have no doubt that the object they have in view will be attained. Indeed, the great weight and influence which noblemen and gentlemen very properly possess in their several neighbourhoods, are a suffici- cient guarantee that the measures for the im- provement of property, once judiciously set on foot by them, will be wisely carried out. In Aberystwith we are aware there are gen- tlemen who have felt and still feel a great degree of interest in this subject; and, as we have before stated, they formed themselves into a club or society for the preservation of our fisheries. These gentlemen, however, only want, though they do want, the co-operation of those who are really interested, in common with themselves, but who, perhaps, from not having thought much of the matter, have not taken any part in a subject which is certain- ly of great interest to all, and which is drawing forth the attention of the neighbouring propri- etors in the adjoining Counties. We hope, therefore, that having the example before us of the gentlemen at Machynlleth and other places it will not be lost sight of; but that we may shortly be able to congratulate the inhab- itants of Aberystwith, that in addition to the very numerous and important improvements which have been effected by them, and which are already in progress, they have added to the numbftr the conservation of our valuable Rivers Ystwith and Rheidol. We last week inadvertently committed an error in speaking of the five Vessels lying alongside the Coal Company's Wharf. The paragraph reads one of them with coals for the company," whereas it should be, four of them." ————
NEW CHURCH AT LLANGORWEN,…
NEW CHURCH AT LLANGORWEN, NEAR ABERYST- WITH, IN THE PARISH OF LLANBADARN FAWR. This Church, which we believe is to be consecrated on Tuesday the 20th instant, has been erected in the Hamlet of Pontllangorwen, in the Vale of Clarach. The further parts of that Hamlet and of Broncastellan being distant upwards of four miles from the parish church, atLlanbadarn fawr, the present site was selected as not being more than a mile and a half distant from the most remote parts of either of those hamlets. In- dependently of the eligibility of the site for the Sa- cred Edifice, regard was also had to the tradition of there having been formerly a Church on the spot. When we reflect that about 600 souls in this vale will now be spiritually instructed by an Apostolic Church, numbers of whom, from age or infirmity, might never have been able again to attend the ministrations of that church within the pale of which they had been brought up, we feel that every Christian mind must rejoice that the wills of God's faithful people were stirred up to the execution of this good work.-Tho land to build upon, as well as the burial ground, having been given by a zealous friend to the Church established in these Realms, who also promised an Endowment of XIOOO. a subscription was set on foot in the month of October 1837, and we are happy to be enabled to record that the amount subscribed now exceeds the sum of £880, including the munificent donations of XI 00 from Miss Griffiths, X,50 from His Grace the Duke of Newcastle, and similar sums of £50 from Pryse Pryse, Esq. M. P., Mrs. Williams, Cwmcynfelin, and M. D. Williams, Esq., £25 from Sir George Prevost, Bart., X-20 each from Colonel Powell, M. P. The Rev. Dr. Warneford, and Mrs. J. M. Davies, and X10 each from W. C. Gilbertson, Esq., Rice Jones, Esq., and many other lay friends of the established Church, in addition to the hand- some and most liberal subscriptions of the Incumbent. and Curates of the District. Of the building we may with truth assert that it reflects great credit on the skill, as well as taste of the architect, Henry Jones Underwood, Esq., of Oxford, who has adopted the Early pointed" or Lancet-headed Window. The Chancel, which, although in the same style, must be considered more decorative than the Nave, is en- riched with the slender columns" so peculiar to that style. The Altar End, however, is still more decora- tive, with its series of seven Arches forming Tablets, and Stone Altar. On the Tablets The Lord's Prayer the Commandments, and the Creed are inscribed. When the elevation is completed by the addition of the Tower, Llangorwen Church will, form a pe- culiarly beautiful feature in the rich andfertile Vale of Clarach. The following quantities of lead ore have been shipped at Aberystwith in the present week. 7l tons -a from the Nantycra works, and 7l tons from the
