LONDON AND NORTH WESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY. —At a special general meeting of the shareholders of the London and North Western Railway Company, held in London on Saturday, several bills in which the company is interested were considered. The first was that of the Carnarvon and Llanberis Railway; to enable the London and North Western Company to become joint owners of the Carnarvon and Llauberis Railway, to work that line, and to empower the company to sub. scribe X50,000 to that undertaking. The line in question would bring the company in connection with a slate district, from which much valuable traffic was expected. The motion approving of the bill wascarried unanimously. The second bill was that cf the London and North Western and Knighton, Central Wales, and Central Wales Extension Railway, which is intended to vest in the London and North Western Company the under- takings of the other companies mentioned, as from 30th June, 1868; the London and North Western Company to pay interest on the mortgages of the three companies, not exceeding in the whole X267,933 to pay dividends on preference shares of those companies (at present rates) not exceeding in the whole £ 194,000; and to pay eveiy holder of ordinary shares of those Companies (not exceed- ing in the whcle £ 538,067) the following dividends, on Knighton and Central Wales shares (amounting together to £ 238,000) at £4 per cent. per annum, on Central Wales Extension (amounting to £ 30(1,067) at X2 10s per cent. per annum; to enable the London and North Western Company to issue new shares or stock in its undertaking, bearing the beforementioned rates of divid- end to give to the Mid Wales Railway Company traffic facilities by through rates, through booking, Ac., reci- procal facilities being conferred on the London and North Western Railway.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. I The Queen received on Saturday the painful 1 intelligence of an attempt upon the life of the Duke of Edinburgh, at Sydney, New South Wales. Her Majesty received a telegram from his Royal Highness informing her Majesty that he is progressing most favourably. Her Majesty the Queen, with their Royal Highnesses Princesses Louise and Beatrice and Prince Leopold, attended by the Ladies and Gen- tlemen of the Court, is expected to leave Osborne about the 8th of May, and return to Windsor whence after a stay of about a week her Majesty will probably proceed to Scotland. Their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Prin- cess of Wales visited Carnarvon on Saturday, on their return from Ireland, and had a most enthu- siastic reception from the inhabitants of the Principality. Addresses were presented to them from the mayor, aldermen, and burgesses of Car- narvon, from the Principality, and the Council of the National Eisteddfod, and a gold medal struck in honour of the occasion was also presented to her Royal Highness by the Eisteddfod Council. Their Royal Highnesses visited the ancient Castle of Carnarvon, the reputed birthplace of the first Prince of Wales, aud were entertained at a ban- quet within the walls of the castle, at which the high sheriff of the county presided. On Thursday night last the debate on the first resolution, affirming the disestablishment of the Irish Church, was concluded, when the affirma- tion was carried by a majority of 65, the numbers being for Mr Gladstone's resolution, 330; against it, 265. An event has occurred which fills the Fenian cup of iniquity to overflowing, and which cannot fail to rouse the indignation not only of all loyal British subjects, but of the civilised world. His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh was de. liberately shot in the back, by a miscreant named O'Farrell, whilst attending a public pic-nic given in aid of a Sailors' Home at Port Jackson. The would-be assassin is an avowed Fenian, and de- clared himself to be so at the time the crime was committed. The occurrence tool: place on the 12th of March, and on the 14th the ball was ex- tracted. The Duke was able to go on board his ship, and it is hoped that he will soon be able to resume his duties, but his medical advisers have ordered him to return to England as soon as possible. Up to the end of March his Royal Highness was still progressing favourably. O'Farrell fired a second shot, which wounded a gentleman named Thorne in the foot. A circum- stance is now mentioned in connection with the attempt to assassinate the Duke of Edinburgh which is fitted to increase, if possible, the public indignation. It appears from telegrams which have reached the Colonial-office that the plot originated in this country, and that O'Farrell acted on orders sent out from England, he having been chosen by lot to do the deed. The design was to murder the Prince when he landed in state, but as this could not be done without risk of injuring others, the commission of the crime was postponed. A reward of RI,000 has been offered by the New South Wales Government for the apprehension of each accomplice, and one important arrest has been made in Victoria. There is glorious news this week from Abys- sinia. Theodore was defeated in battle in the open country, and having released the British captives, retired to Magdala. He was followed to his capital and stronghold, which was stormed and captured on the 18th instant, with a loss to the British army of the most insignificant char- acter—one officer and fourteen men wounded. Theodore was killed, and about 500 of his fol- lowers met a like fate. Fifteen hundred were wounded, and 14,000 men laid down their arms. We may therefore hope that the Abyssinian war is over. Of the complete success of the Abyssinian ex- pedition we are now assured by telegrams from the commander-in-chief himself, and messages from other parties. The course of events is now quite clear. On Good Friday our troops encoun- tered the army of Theodore in front of Magdala, and the result was the defeat of the Abyssinians with great loss. None were killed on our side, but one officer, Captain Roberts, of the 4th Foot, and 15 rank and file, were wounded. Theodore appears to have thought that this battle was enough, for he immediately surrendered all the prisoners in the course of the two following days, but he neglected to surrender himself, which was part of Sir Robert Napier's demand. It became necessary, therefore, to bombard Alagdala, whither the King had retired with his disheartened forces. The place was taken by assault on the 13th inst., under cover of Armstrong steel guns, mortars, and a rocket battery. Our loss was trifling, al- though the ascent to the gates was difficult and formidable. It seems to be doubtful whether Theodore committed suicide or was killed in the desperate defence of his capital. The British troops return immediately. Sir Robert Napier has been appointed-in recognition of his brilliant services-a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath. Early on Saturday morning a disaster of a serious character occurred at Holyhead. While the royal mail steamer Australasian was steaming up from Queenstown to Liverpool she suddenly came into collision with the screw steamer Isle of Arran and ran her down. The master and five of the crew were drowned, but two men were picked up by a boat which was at once despatched from the Australasian. The men who thus escaped were brought to Liverpool. It is said that the Isle of Arran had no masthead light up, and that the side lights could not be seen by those on board the mail steamer. The Isle of Arran had taken shelter in Holyhead harbour through stress of weather, and was proceeding on her way to South Wales for a cargo of coals when the unfortunate accident took place. Mr Gladstone has written a letter intended to demolish at one blow all the stories which have been circulated to his prejudice during the last week or two. There are six calumnies of which he complains—that he arranged at Rome for the overthrow of the Irish Church that he opposed Dr Wynter's preferment; that he is against state pay for the church that he did not go with the Queen to Church at Crathie that he has received the thanks of the Pope for his Irish Church reso- lutions and that lie is a High Church ritualist- This is a very various catalogue of crimes, but Mr Gladstone declares that every one of these charge8 is untrue in letter and spirit. The Royal Geographical Society meeting was unusually crowded on Monday night to hear the official and other despatches from Dr. Livingstone- All the main facts personal to the great traveller have been made public, but some of the letters contained interesting geographical notes. Sir Roderick Murchison expressed the opinion that if Livingstone took the short route back he might be in England in the autumn, but that if he con- tinued his explorations northward lie might be absent eighteen months longer. Some amusement was caused by Sir Samuel Baker—whilst acknow- ledging with pleasure that he was wrong in believ- ing the traveller to be dead—insisting that his opinion had been formed upon practical evidence, whereas Sir Roderick had gone upon mere faith. Amongst the distinguished persons present were the Duke of Argyll, the Duke of Wellington, the Count de Paris, Sir R. Rawliuson, Ac. The London Fenian trials ended on Monday in the acquittal of all the prisoners but Barrett, who, having been found guilty, was sentenced to death.—The foundation stone of the Keble memo- rial college at Oxford was laid on Saturday by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The ceremony was of a very imposing character, and was participated in by a large number of dignitaries of the church and influential laymen.-Mr J. Harland, F. S. A. i a gentleman well known and highly respected in literary circles in Manchester, died on Thursday last. He was for 30 years connected with the newspaper press of that city, and made many valu- able contributions to local and general literature. —A dreadful colliery accident has occurred in the pit of Messrs Williams, Afoneitha. The walls of the pit having given way, four persons were sud- denly buried alive, but someTfours afterwards, by dint of great exertions, two of them were rescued. The others, it was feared, were doomed to perish. The Times says, advices from the western states of America report favourably with regard to agri- cultural prospects. There appears to have been a large increase in the amount of land sown with wheat last autumn, and according to the Cincin- nati price current, all agree that the probabilities of a good crop are unusually strong. A despatch has reached Sir S. Northcote con- taining the announcement, regarding the war in Affghanistan, that Kandahar and Kheelati Ghilzie have been retaken. A committee of military men has been for some time considering the means of placing Prussia and North Germany generally in a state of de- fence, and a report has been issued indicating the different fortifications which ought to be construc- ted, according to the order of their importance. The greater works at Stettin, on the Rhine, and and in Silesia are not to be entirely neglected, but as little as possible is to be done until more important fortifications have been completed, or at least far advanced. The defences of the coast generally, but more especially those of the North Sea, are considered the most urgent, and after these the fortification of Treves, as some com- pensation in that neighbourhood for the loss of Luxemburg. This week there is peaceful news from the Con- tinent, and the intelligence has had a perceptible influence on the London money market. The Prussian Government have given an earnest of their pacific intentions by granting to a large number of soldiers an indefinite furlough from the 1st of May (yesterday), and from other parts of the Continent similarly re-assuring news reaches us. Count Bismarck finds that he cannot manage the North German Parliament so easily as he would like. He has been obliged to withdraw the bill for the regulation of the public debt of the Bund, and it almost boks as if there was to be the commencement of another conflict. But the count is a man of patience, if also of obstinacy, and he has given orders for the preparation of new estimates for the navy for 18(9 on a very reduced scale. All items are to be omitted for which it would be necessary to have recourse to the loan already granted. The greatness of the future navy is a very popular idea in Prussia at present, and the postponement of its realisation is the punishment to be inflicted on the refractory national Liberals. The American papers of the 15th instant give various scraps of intelligence from Venezuela, Hayti, St. Domingo, and Guadaloupe. In Vene- zuela the national troops had gained a decisive victory, but still there was a deadlock in Congress. The Cacos in Hayti are reported to have utterly routed the Government troops and retaken half a dozen towns, and Salnave was making a tour of his unquiet dominions. In St. Domingo thirty of the prominent refugees of the Cabral party had taken refuge in the AinericauUoiiiu late. A great tidal wave had visited Guadaloupe, smashing a Bsitish vessel, heavily laden. By the City of Paris we have further details of the progress of the impeachment of President Johnson, which consist mainly of disputes as to admissibility of certain evidence, and the deci- sions of the Senate thereupon. The Canadian authorities have discovered and seized a corres- pondence between Fenians at Montreal and New York, and it is said to be shown that the murder of Mr D'Arcy M'Gee was planned in the United States. The ship Albert Gallatin, from Mobile to Liverpool, has been burnt and scuttled. Four hundred out of 3,500 bales of cotton were saved. The war in Paraguay is going altogether in favour of the allies. Advices from Rio de Janeiro of date April 8th, state that the outer lines of the Paraguayan position have been forced and taken, that Curupaity has been abandoned, and that Humaita has been evacuated. Without any idea, it is said, of making reprisals in Japan on account of the massacre of the French sailors on boardjthe Dupleix, and without mean- ing to imply any doubt of the promises made by the Japanese to give the fullest possible satisfac- tion, the French Government have ordered the steam-frigate Minerva, stationed at Reunion and Madagascar, and the ironclad corvette Belliqueuse, stationed in the Pacific, to proceed to Yokohama to reinforce the naval division in the Chiuese and Japanese seas.
LOCAL NOTES. THE nOYAL VISIT TO CARNARVON. The first visit of the Prince and the Princess of Wales to the Principality is now over and gone, and has become an event for future historians to chronicle. The present Prince of Wales is the first that ever bore the title who ever paid a purely complimentary viit to that por- tion of the kingdom from which the title itself is derived and a most pleasing and singular coincidence was con- nected with the royal visit, namely, that it should occur on the anniversary of the birth of the first Prince of Wales, who was born either in or near Carnarvon Castle on the 2oth of April, 1284-just 584 years ago. The coincidence was remarked by his Royal Highness who alluded to it in his reply to the principal address. Considered altogether, the proceedings connected with this royal visit were in a high degree satisfactory, and were creditable to the W elsh people and to thoso gentlemen especially who were the more immediately connected with them and amongst those who devoted so strenuously their time and energy to inaugurate a reception worthy of the occasion, we must name two to whom we are all particularly indebted—the High Sheriff of the county, and the Mayor of Carnarvon. It must be recollected that the idea of inviting the Prince to honour Wales with a visit originated with the High Sheriff, Mr K. Sorton Parry, and partook, to a great extent, more of the character of a sudden impulse than of cool and studied thought; and the time which could possibly be given to making preparation was extremely limited, and depended solely upon how long their Royal Highnesses should stay in Dublin. Short as the time was, however, it was made the very most of; and it is a question whether much more eould have been effected had the time for preparation been more extended. Of the warmth and genuineness of the welcome ac- corded to the Prince and his beautiful Consort there could not be, nor was there, the least question whatever and this was as apparent to their Royal Highnesses as it was known and felt to be by the thousands who so loyally greeted them and took part in swelling the ova- tion. The reception may have been, perhaps, a little more orderly, but it could not possibly have been more hearty and spontaneous. The royal party, but particu- larly the Prince and the Princess, appeared to be almost as much surprised as delighted at the extent of the pre- parations which had been made to receive them, and at the unmistakable loyalty which was evinced by the thousands who greeted them as they passed along the crowded streets of the old forted town of Carnarvon, as the procession slowly wound its way from the railway station to the castle. The face of the Princess was radiant with smiles of pleasure and delight; and the Prince seemed to feel himself in the presence of kind hearted friends who were all very glad to see him, and who felt proud of his acquaintance When, therefore, his Royal Highness expressed regret at the banquet that he could not prolong his visit amongst us, on this occa- sion, but that he would pay another vi,it to Wales under more favourable circumstances so far as time was con- cerned, everyone who heard him felt certain when he was speaking in all sincerity, and meant that he said, and was not paying a mere formal compliment. The proceediugsof Saturday last effected one gratifying aud pleasing object —it introduced our future king to his Welsh subjects, in person and they also were calculated to demonstrate the warm feelings of affection and loyalty which the in- habitants of Cambria bear bo the present Royal Family. There are no traitorous hearts nor treason-tainted minds to be found amongst the descendants of Llewelyn and Owain Giyndwr, whatever may be the case elsewhere. Before concluding our remarks on this pleasant sub- ject, we beg to congratulate the Mayor and Corporation of Carnarvon, and the inhabitants of the town and the neighbourhood generally, on the great success which their united and loyal exertions achieved, who, whilst doing honour to the Royal Visitors and themselves also maintained the honour of the Welsh nation for kind hospitality. They found themselves placed in circum- stances which were not at all encouraging, nor to be de- sired but to their credit be it stated they encountered the difficulties presented with stout hearts and strong arms, and with a full determination to surmount them- and they succeeded. They converted Carnarvon from a rough, though accidental and temporary desert," into a "paradise," and that regardless of trouble and expense and for that they have richly earned for themselves the gratitude of the whole of North Wales, as they upon the interesting occasion were the virtual representatives of the whole country. This praise is not too much, the whole circumstances considered and it cannot be termed invidious, because it is deserved and was fairly earned.
