objects of this important undertaking, have held a meeting at Loughborough, for the purpose of considering and maturing the plan to be laid before the public. The result is, that a prospectus will be published for the establishment of a grand line of railway, for travelling and the carriage of all kinds of merchandise, from Derby, Nottingham, and Leicester, to a point of junction with the Birmingham and London railways, including a branch from the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire collieries.
The facility in transmitting cattle of all descriptions from the east coast of Scotland to the London market has caused thousands of acres of arable land to be appropriated exclusively to grazing. The graziers are in high spirits, and are stocking their farms and rearing cattle for the London market, where Scottish beasts are in great request, and bring remunerating prices. Before the introduction of the cattlecarrying steamers, the cattle from Scotland had to travel from the most remote parts of the Highlands to the interior of England and of the metropolis; and besides the expense of time, feeding, and attendance, the animals fell off considerably, and were not in proper condition when they arrived at their place of destination. By the steamers the cattle are only about 48 hours on the passage to London, and are landed in excellent condition. Ham curers are suffering severely from the best of bullocks being bought up for the English market, and the consequent scarcity of prime rumps for curing. The attention of the graziers to the rearing of stock, to meet the increased and still increasing demand, will in a year or two, we trust, enable them to supply the English and the home market. In the mean time rump hams that formerly sold wholesale at 5d. or 6d. per lb. cannot now be supplied at less than 6ļd., and scarce. Last winter the price was the same, and will continue so until the number of cattle raised is equal to the demand.
