It is satisfactory to report that the ThomM- Merthyr Colliery Company, Ltd., whose regis- tered office is at 130, High-street, Merthyr, have struck a new seam of coal, 2 feet 2 inches in thickness, near Graig Farm, Abereanaid. It is semi-bituminous, and corresponds to the Graig seam, which produces the celebrated house coal of the Aberdare Valley. The company have been boring in the locality for nearly three years, and, after many failures and much anxiety, have at last struck oil. It is anticipated that the seam covers about 400 acres, sufficient for twenty years' working. The Company hope to give employment before long to an additional one hundred men.
