At a Meeting of the Inhabitants (f ) the City Chester, held in the Town l-lal-lon Tuesdaj, the l&th qJ Alurch, 1821— TIN: nifjiir WOUS.UIM CL THE MAYOR IN THE CHAIft. It was unanimously resolved, Hp 11 AT amongst the improvements:of-tho'l^st | thirty years, none have contributed more essentially or more permanently to the eonnnei ven en cial and personal interests and convenience of this country, than those which have I by the erection of Bridges, and the scientific con- struction of the public roads,—whereby distances have been diminished, speed of communication has been accelerated, and the expences of, car," riage, and the fatigue of travelling, have been greatly lessened. That recognizing the vast iJoportnce of. thê most complete practical union of the diflerent parts of the empire, this meeting has seen with pleasure the great and successful exertions which have been made, to perfect the Road between the Metropolis and Holyhead, on the Shrewsbury Line; and now that this has been finished, and the intercourse between Ireland, and the Seat of National Government has been completed, they conceive that the Chester Road is entitled to a like degree ofattention, from the unequalled im- portance of its commercial connexion. It is the necessary medium of communication between Ire- land and the great manufacturing districts of Lancashire, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Stiff • fordshire, Nottinghamshire, and Leicestershire, as well as of the Ports of Liverpool and Hull. In point of commerce, it is in fact beyond all compe- tition, the most important Line of Road between Great Britain and Ireland.. That many parts of this Road are Susceptible of very great improvement, whereby the distance between Chester and Bangorwould be contracted, and the speed of transit very much increased, and that this is become peculiarly necessary and ur- gent from the proposed arrival at Holyhead, of the London mail through Shrewsbury, two hours e r, earlier than at present; the result of which would be the sailing of the Packet before the Chester Mail got in, and the delay of the important cor- respondence of which it is the bearer. That this meeting concurs,-therefore, most cor- dially with the Merchants, &e. of Dublin, who have by Petition directed the views of the Legis- lature to the state of the Chester Line of Road, and will strenuously co-operate with them, in en- deavouring to obtain a removal ol iti detects, and that the Mayor of this City be requested to com- municate these Resolutions to the Lord Mayor of Dublin. That a Copy of these Resolutions and of the Petition to be agreed upon at tlsis 'iTeeiing, be forwarded also, with a. request for their iuniiedi- ate and most influential co-operation, to the Mayor of Liverpool, the Boreughreeves of Man- chester, the La. J Mayor of York, the Mayors of Leeds, Halifax, Sheffield, Nottingham, Derby, Newcastle-under-Tyne, Stockport, and Mat eli s- field, to the Commissioners of the Holy lu^idiioad, the Parliamentary Representatives of the City of Dublin, and of the several Counties Oti, North Wales, and of the Counties and Boroughs of the Great Northern, Commercial and ]\1¡\UH. facturiag Districts. That the Petition now read is atlf- as the Petition of this Meeting, and do lie at the Town Hall, for Signatures, till Wednesday then to be forwarded to the He^resentatives, of tU« City, for presentation, with our most eara-pst re- quest that they will give it ail the support in their power. That the foregoing Resolutions be inserted once in each of the Chester, Stockport, and Maccles- field Papers, the North Wales Gazette, and one Dublin Paper. The Mayor having left the Chair— H. Potts, Esq. moved that the thanks of this Meeting be given to him for his readiness in call- ing the Meeting, and for his collituct ill the Chair, which was carried unanimously. To the Commons of Gr^dBritainand Ireland, in Parliament assembled.^ '• The Petition of the under-signed, Inhiibdants qf the City of Chester, '.}l Town Hall, on Tuesday, the Mh oj March, 18:24, in consequence of a Requisition to the Right Worshipful the a or to thuttffect. SllOWETH That your Patitioners fully recognrzelhe po- litical, commercial, and social importance of the improved communications between the ditrerent parts of the Empire, and more especially of those between Great Britain a.nd Ireland, towards which Parliamentary aid has been granted, with a ibe- 0 'of tile rality corresponding with the magnUu the objects to be obtained. The Bridges over tho Menai & the Conway pro- mise to be of the utmost utility when coi mleted and the improvements on the Shrewsbury Line of Road have already drawn Irelandltr much speedier communication with the seat ot Govern- ment. But if the Road between Holyhead and Shrewsbury be politically the most important, that between Holyhead and Chester is commerci- .,atl!l so, beyond all comparison. Your Petitioners beg leave to remind your Ho- nourable House, that through the Chester Line of Road are necessarily carried on the great personr al intercourse and correspondericebetween I reland and the Port of Liverpool, together with tnose of the manufacturing districts of Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Stanordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, aud Leicestershire. But. your Petitioners hope they may be allowed to refer to the reports of the Engineers employed by your Honourable House, in proof ofthe fact, that many parts of the line of road between Bangor and Chester are so extremely objectionable and im- perfect in their direction, as to cause much unne- cessary delay, and not unfrequently accidents. Your Petitioners beg further to state, that not- withstanding every exertion has been made, and is now making, to expedite the arrival at Holy- head of the Mail through Chester, and that within the last twelve months live hours have been gain- ed between London and Chester, yet if the arrival at Holyhead of the London Mail through Shrews- bury should, as proposed, be two hours earlier than at present, the time thus gained must be lost at Holyhead, in waiting for the arrival of the Chester Mail, or the Packet must sail before the arrival of this Mail, to the manifest injury of the first commercial interests of the two countries. Your Petitioners most respectfully but urgent- ly pray therefore, that such surveys and estimates may be ordered with all convenient speed, as may present to your Honourable House a clear view of the defects of this road, and the most effectual mode of remedying them, and of giving every practicable facility to the great commercial, com- munications of this district. j And your Petitioners shall ever pray, &c. MAIL CAR. THE Public are respectfully informed, that a MAIL CAR, three times a week, for tlie conveyance of Letters and Parcels, will com- mence running about the 5th of April next, from Carnarvon, through Beddgelert and Tremadoc, to Tan-y-bwlch, &c.in the county of Merioneth. Parcels sent by this conveyance, will be for- warded in the most expeditious manner The days of running and other particulars, will be mentioned in a future advertisement.
