SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1840. THE period of our editorial labours, though we can hardly call them labours, having arri- ved at its close, we have just been taking a cursory view of the several matters of local interest to which we have endeavoured, in the previous numbers of the Mirror, to direct atten- tion. We are very much inclined to fear that our efforts have been but too humble to be productive of much good, but the one desire for the prosperity of Aberystwith being the sole object in our mind, the unpretending man- ner of the expression may, it is hoped, be ex- cused. Perhaps, partly owing to the time of the year in which our publication has appeared, viz. the summer season, when from the nature of the place all interest is necessarily, almost, confined to the town, we have not noticed, so much as might have been done, the surround- ing Neighbourhood. We are sure the neigh- bourhood of Aberystwith for bold and majes- tic scenery isalmost, if not altogether, unrivalled, and we cannot but express our regret that the beauties of an autumnal month at Aberystwith are not enjoyed by a larger number of Visitants. Confident we are, however, that on an improved access to the place being effected, a Winter residence here will be as general as the Summer visit; and we are very sanguine on the fact of the establishment of a Steam-packet communi- cation before another year has passed away, when numbers we are sure, will be glad of an opportunity of judging for themselves of the desirableness of sojourning in a place where snow never continues for twelve hours on the ground. The prosperty and improvement of the in- habitants of this beautiful neighbourhood must also be desired by every individual who has had an opportunity of witnessing their quiet and economical habits of life and while the season is fast approaching when, throughout England as well as in many parts of the principa- lity, the Christmas shows of prize Cattle will be exhibited and witnessed with j oy, we feel a degree of sorrow that the immediate neighbourhood of Aberystwith does not possess that laudable stimulus to the improvement of a very great proportion of the population, an AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. The study of agriculture, pursued as a science, is, beyond almost anything, admi- rably calculated to expand the mind and im- prove the man and we know of no instance where in an equally circumscribed space, so many noble examples are set by great Land Owners of their attachment to agricultural pursuits, as are shewn by the Proprietors of the principal estates in the immediate vicinity of Aberystwith. This being the fact we think it would be far from difficult to establish here an Agricultural Association or perhaps, seve- ral associations, or an association on each large estate would in the first instance be desirable and without affecting to be too knowing on the subject, we should say it would be difficult to meet with men more qualified or better calcu- lated, judging from the estates under their management, than the representatives of the large properties around Aberystwith, to organ- ize and mature such associations as we have mentioned. At all events we trust we shall be pardoned for throwing out the hint, whether adopted or not; though perhaps it may be said we have no business with such matters, and, in truth, this may be the case; but it is a very easy thing to be betrayed into the discussion of any matter which is dear to one, and we confess we would rather plead guilty to the charge of officiously advocating twenty Agricultural Associations, than be convicted of being present even at one Political Association.

proportion to the shock, which the popular belief in Royal good faith has received. The Army of Prussia is essentially national. Every citizen is a soldier, but every soldier is a citizen too and unless better hopes be speedily held out, and a more honest policy announced ou the part of the Court, we foresee a strug- gle in that country which would have taken place long ago, but for the peculiar circumstances that recon- ciled the People to the enlightened despotism of the late King.
