These Pills are compounded from the recipe of one of the most eminent physicians of the present day (who, from purely philanthropic motives—knowing their excellent propertiesfrom experienee- has been induced to give the benefit of them to the public at large). They are prepared by an able and experienced chemist, and are acknowledged, by the faculty, t., be the most valuable medicine for !I disorders of the stomach and derangements of the liver ever prepared. It is a well-known fact that most of the diseases incident to the human race arise from a disordered stomach, and an irregular state of the bowels, and for wart of a suitable remedy, taken in time, thousands of (at first) simple maladies become serious illnesses. To guard against this great evil, and to preserve the bles- sings of health, these pills are confidently and earnestly recommended. They act t-enerally on the constitution, cleanse the blood of all impurities; regulate the secretions, and give tone to the stomach; correct the morbid condition of the 11""r. regulate the bowels, and, by removing all impediments, restore elasticity and vigour to the whole frame. a Sold in boxes (with directions for use) is.1ld. and 7id. each (a saving by taking the larger size).

Various r,.e,ociati.,ns and treaties, which need not be here d,.titiled, have since been resorted to f >r getting the line made. independently of local efforts, but without ffect and the directors are satisfied th-it it will be impossible, in the pres-n' day, or for man y»-ars to come, to get this line made without heai ty loc 1 co operation. It follows, therefore, that unless possession can he .gO! of the necessary land upon easy terms ami thn original >ub»c>iption list, wh'ch am unud to n.nrl\ £ 6,00!>, an be revived, and augtne' te.i to the exten of aneut.

The directors, h -wever, 1 ope liet!f-r rings than this from the pluck and en erprixn of their fr el (is and neighbours; and they think that the anient 1 > ni- ii g which is felt for the line will prompt one final effori to obtain it A responsible contractor is ready to make the line from Abergavenny to Crickt owi-II for a sum f atiout .£O,"OO, a..d to take about t:10,000 01' ha- sum in the ordinary sha,. es ol' the Company, provided he is put in possession of the land, and i- shown a local subscription list r qual in amount to the shares he takes, viz., about 210,000 All the persons who have claims against the Com- pany, in respect to the prrliminary expenses for obtaining 'he Act, have consented to forbear those claims until the line is made from Abergavenny to Crickhowell so that the directors are enab'ed to guarantee to Subscribers that every shilling of the money they subscribe shall be expended in the con- struction of the line. The Directors will do all in their power to make the calls at as long intervals, and as little burdensome to the subscribers as they possibly can. C »lls can only be made, under the Act, at intervals of three months, and no more than one-fifth of a share can be called at one time. The Directors feel satisfied that when the line is once made and opened to Crickhowell, little difficulty will be found in providing the means to extend it to the junction at Talybont. The Directors commend these remarks to the earnest consideration of those interested, and trust that the general feeling of the necessity f"r this line, and the public spirit of the landowners and inhabitants, will avert the humlllatin step of having to proceed in November nxt to abandon the undertaking. The Directors will make a personal canvass of the neighbourhood fo support, and they trust that, th* ir efforts will be cordially responded to by all C ases. G. A. A.
