THIS Railway will commence bya Junction _L with the authorized Carnarvonshire Railway on the South Side of the Harbour of Carnarvon and following the course of the River Seiont, terminate in Llanberis near the Victoria Hotel. There will also be a small Branch running alongside the Nantlle Tramway to the existing Quays at Carnarvon. The Act of Incorporation authorizes the working of the Line by the London and North Western Railway Company and its extension to that Company's Station at Carnarvon. The Railway is promoted by the Quarry Proprietors of Llanberis, to afford them a direct and independent colli- muaication between Llanberis and the Harbour of Car- narvon for the purposes of Slate Traffic, and at the same time to accommodate the large Passenger Traffic between those places. The Line will lead greatly to the improvement of the Harbour and the extension of the Quays. It presents no Engineering difficulties, and is supported by all the principal Land Owners—Lord Newborough has generous- ly given the land belonging to him which will be required for the works. The Traffic on the Line will be very considerable be- sides a number of valuable Quarries now raising slates (the Traffic in which will, it is belived, alone pay a fair dividend on the Capital), there is a great population in the neighbourhood of Llanberis requiring Railway com- munication with the Market Town of Carnarvon. Dur- ing a portion of the year, also, there are great nnmber of Tourists, who visit Snowdon and the Lakes, to whom this Lway will be a great convenience. These sources of Traffic are so well-known to the General Public in Carnar- vonshire that any detailed statistics are quite unneces- sary. It will be sufficient to mention that one of the Directors alone pays at the present time nearly £2,000 perannumn for the conveyance of slate fee., between Llanberis and Carnarvon. The Directors, therefore, tak- ing into consideration the low cost at which this Line can be constructed entertain the opinion that it cannot fail to be highly profitable to the Shareholders, and, that it will become one of the most paying Lines in North Wales. The Directors are desirous of securing the early con- struction of the Railway, and in order to attain this ob. ject have made arrangements with responsible contractors to undertake the works. They have also arranged with them to guarantee a Dividend at the rate of R4 per Cent per Annum during the construction of the Line upon all payments made in respect of Shares which shall have been subscribed for by the 15th day of August next, pro- vided One-Third of the Capital shall be subscribed for by that day. This arrangement will be found highly advan- tageous to the Shareholders. No liability is incurred by the Shareholders beyond the amount actually subscribed for.

I THE ROYAL INSURANCE COMPANY. I To the Editor of the North Wales Chroniclc. I Sir,-It will be gratifying to the numerous assurers who have already insured in this locality with this dis- tinguished Company to find that another successful year has crowned the exertions of the Directors and Staff generally of the Royal Insurance Company. During the past year its ratio of progress has not only been fully maintained, but it far exceeds that of any preceding year of its existence. Its annual income has now reached a sum approaching £ 600,000, and its accumu- lations are more than adaquate to meet all demands that can possibly arise. From a report of the annual general meeting of the shareholders held a few days back in the Company's Offices in North Johu Street, Liverpool, the following facts connected with this flourishing Institution were made known as the results of last years business. An increase in the fire premiums of ;C40 000, a sum assured on new life business amount- ing to i750,000 for which the premiums receivable are L24,000 also an increase in the life and annuity fund of upwards of 1100,000. It is calculated with respect to the last item from the Actuary's knowledge of that class of transactions, which enables him to express an opinion that at least a similar amount, will be added annually to the life funds of the Company for some future years. That experienced gentlemen, Mr. Dave, tells us, that there will be an equal ratio of accumulation for the next,ten years' at any rate; and that now having be- tween X500,000 and 9600,000 to the credit of those funds that then will be added at the end of the period of time named, a million sterling to that sum. It is as- certained in the report that the New Life Policies of the present year outstrip those of the past one, and give hope that the sum assured in the year 1864 will not be far from a million sterling, with a net amount of pre- mium, not alone off24,000 as in the last year, but ap- proaohiug to 1:30,000. The able Actuary will not des- pond of being able to add another £40,000 to the fire branch this year; or if not, that the increase shall at the least be equal to the average ratio of increase for the last ten or fifteen years. By the Government returns of Insurance Companies account just issued, it shews the Royal has actually paid in the last year E88,908 being a larger amount of duty in the United Kingdom than any other Office, excepting two London Companies, one established for more than 70 years and the other for above 150 years. The balance sheets of Insurances Com- panies tell us, this Company the Royal," although transacting such a very much larger business than the others referred to in the blue book, yet contrives to render all its accounts in a complete and satisfactory manner, indeed, its statements, by showing how tho- roughly the act can be complied with justifying astrong censure on the slipshod method adopted by some other Companies. Mr. Ayres refers them to the Act of 1864 passed through Parliament to this effect, viz.. that under the 7th and 8th Vic., c. 110, all Insurance Companies which were established after the date mentioned were compelled to register their annual balance sheets at the Joint-Stock Companies Registration Office. As the NORTH WALES CHRONICLE is a paper which is largely read by them who are assurers in the "Royal aud who see but a few of the unlocal newspapers, permit me a further space of your journal to extract from the Civil Service Gautte of the 13th inst., the following re- marks, viz.:—The Royal Insurance Company is perhaps the most remarkable of all the Insurance Companies we are acquainted with for the extraordinarily rapid manner, it has come into public confidence and attained public support. In fact, the Parliamentary returns place it only third on the list, in regard to the amount of duty paid to Government in the year 1863. It will be remem- bered that some time ago we directed attention to the liberality of the Directors in determining to pay the claims of their insurers arising from the explosion of gunpowder on board the Lotty Sleigh a course they were not legally bound to adopt, but which they adopted from a high sense of rectitude, believing that although not legally, they were morally responsible. Had it not been for the Royal," there is no question that people sustaining damage from that explosion would have re- ceived no compensation, for the other offices were re- lucantly compelled after such an example, to acknow- ledge the principle of moral responsibity. No doubt, this liberality has done much to raise the office in the estimation of the thinking public. I again, and lastly, Mr. Editor, quote the following from the Money Market Review, a WeeklyRecord of Trade and Finance, of thp same date. Successful as the Company has hitherto been for a series of years the results of last year's oper- ations were even more than had been expected by its staunchest friends and supporters. The Royal" now enjoys an amount of public confidence which it is grati- fying to recognise, and a reputation for the prompt and liberal settlement of claims that ranks second to no other Office in the kingdom." Yours. &c. ROBERT LB WIS. fbe-Mynydd, LlanfecheU, Anglesey, 1864.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. The Queen, the Princess Helena, the Prince and Princess Louis of Hesse, and the younger branches of the Royal Family, left Osborne on the 25th ult., and arrived at Windsor the same evening. His Grand Ducal Highness, Prince Elimar, of Oldenburg, arrived at the Castle soon after the Royal Family, and remained till the next day, on a visit to her Majesty. On the 25th, the Grand Duchess Mario, of Russia, visited the Queen. On Saturday, the Prince and Princess Louis of Hesse took leave of the Queen, and thair other relatives, and proceeded to Gravesend, where they embarked for Antwerp, en route for Darmstadt. The same day, the Duke and Duchess of Saxe Co- burg arrived at Dover, and proceeded to Windsor on a visit to Her Majesty. On Monday evening, tha 29th ult., the Queen, her Majesty's visitors, and the Royal Family, left Windsor for Balmoral. The royal party arrived at Perth about nine a.m. on Tuesday, where breakfast was prepared in the room be- longing to the several railway companies which converge at Perth. After breakfast, her Majesty and the younger branches of the Royal Family, and the Duke and Duchess of Saxe Coburg Gotha. proceeded to the site of the statue, erected by the citizens of Perth to the late Prince Consort. On the arrival of her Majesty, the statue was un- Yiiled, and solemnly inaugurated. After the ce- remony, the Queen and Royal Family returned to the railway station, and proceeded to Balmoral by the Scottish North Eastern Railway. The citizens of Perth were very demonstrative in their loyalty, but far from being offensively so and all went off well. The Queen arrived at Balmo- ral quite safe on Tuesday, at 4 30 p.m. Sir Chas. Wood is the Secretary of State who accompanied her Majesty. Her Majesty will remain at Bal- moral six or eight weeks and then return to Windsor. The Duke and Duchess of Saxe Coburg will remain all the time with her Majesty. The Prince and Princess of Wales have been dispensing hospitality in pic-nics, a ball to the tenantry, and in other ways, at Abergeldie. On Friday, the birthday of the late Prince Consort, the tenantry were invited to meet the Prince of Wales at the Obelisk, erected by them to the me- mory of his late Royal Highness. There they were each served with a glassof spirits, which was drunk in silence—On that dav, the Princess Mary left the Castle for London. Her Royal High- ness was joined, on the route, by the Duke of Cambridge, who had been making a tour of visits in Scotland and they arrived in town on Satur- day.—On Tuesday, their Royal Highnesses left London for Geneva. Last Friday was the anniversary of the birth- day of the late Prince Consort. In respect to his memory, and at the request of her Majesty, the Directors of the Royal Horticultural Gardens, South Kensington, opened those attractive grounds on that day to the public, free of charge. The weather was fine, and the attendance proved, that her Majesty's kindness was appreciated. Several managers of metropolitan schools sent the children in vans, and they played merrily on the sward in the walks. There were bands of music in attendance and the day appears to have been one of complete enjoyment. We might fill our paper with accidents and of- fences. On Friday morning, two sisters were found dead in their house in the Mile End Road, and it has not been possible to ascertain how they came by their death. They were interred at the Victoria Park cemetery, on Tuesday.—A stone- mason's labourer, residing in Cross-street, Hatton Garden, beat his wife so severely on Sunday night that she died.—The wife of another labourer in the East of London, was found dead on Monday morning, with marks about her, as if death had been caused by violence.—On Monday evening a youth was killed by an explosion at Percy Main Colliery. Several persons were injured' and con- siderable damage done to property. The Danish officials expelled from Schleswig have sent an address to the Government at Co- penhagen, in which they regret the separation of of that Duchy from Denmark and pray that steps may be taken, by resolution of the Risgraad, to secure for the people a voice in determining their future government. They propose a popular vote, taken under conditions to secure freedom at the ballot-box. The Danish Risgraad met on Satur- day the President of the council declared that the Government would endeavour to protect the interests of the Schleswigers, both in their na- tional and political rights. The negotiations for the definitive treaty were opened last week, at Vienna. The Danish negociators are M. de Quade and Col. Kaufmann. The State councillor Fenger attends to the Danish financial interests. The negotiations, have, as yet, made no progress; the Danish plenipotentiaries being still waiting for some important instructions. On the 24th ult., in reply to the invitation of the German Diet, the Duke of Augustenburg for- warded to that body a formal statement of his claims to the united Duchies of Schleswsg Hol- stein, His claims, and those of the Duke of Ol- denburg, and the Prince of Hesse, are all before a committee of the Diet. On the 25th ult., the King of Prussia left Vi- enna for Baden Baden, where, it is stated, he will probably remain till the 9th inst. An interview is to take place between his Majesty and the King of Bavaria, which the Munich papers "Hail with joy," as producing a kindred feeling between the two monarchs, and inspiring a hope that they are drawn together by a mutual desire to further the interests of Germany. Herr Von Bismark was at Munich, on Saturday and Sunday, discussing important negociations," say the telegrams, with the Minister of State. He left Munich on Sun- day evening and joined the King at Baden on Monday. It appears, that France is to proceed further in the path of Free Trade. A dinner was given at Marseilles, on the 25th nit., to M. Behic, the Minister of Agricultural, Commerce, and Public Works; at which that functionary announced, that all customs duties, which were for mere pro- tection, were to be abolished in future, those duties will only be levied for purposes of revenue. He also promised other measures, for the purpose of leaving industryfa. far as possible, free and un- shackled. At a meeting of the Council-General of the Loire, on the 24tli ult., the Duke de Persigny spoke long and eloquently in favour of French liberty. There is, however, little liberty of the press: the next day, the Moniteur announced, that the Courier du Dsmanche was suspended for two months, for the insertion of an article criti- cising the Government policy.—On Saturday, Prince Humbert of Italy, arrived at the Palais Royal on Sunday he dined at St Cloud and on Tuesday vjsited the Camp at Chalons, with the Emperor, where a grand review was held in his honour. The report that he is to marry the Princess Anne Murat is positively contradicted by the official paper of Turin. But the Independence of that city asserts, that the marriage is a settled thing. On Tuesday, Prince Murat and his family em- barked at Toulon, on board the steam-frigate Casique the Prince intends to visit Palestine; this does not look as if the alliance was intended at all events, it will not take place at present. Last week, the arrests and domiciliary visits made in the Venetian provinces, and at Trent, in the Tyrol, were numerous. The police authori- ties were active, and great alarm existed amongst the population. The intelligence has been re- ceived via Turin. On Saturday, a fire was raging in the Forest of Piccuzza, a crown domain near Palermo. The people assembled in great numbers, and exerted themselves to arrest the progress of the flames. On Tues lay, Victor Emmanuel received Baron Dunow, envoy from the Empernr of Mexico, who presented letters, announcing his Majesty's acces- sion. He was very favourably received, and will proceed to Switzerland on a similar mission. Tranquility is restored at Geneva. Eight per- sons were killed in the riots, who were interred on the 25th ult. The great Council of Geneva met on the 24th ult., and resolved upon demanding that the Federal Council should support the election of M. Chenevriere-they declaring that election void had caused the riots. He had 300 votes more than his radical opponents. The Queen of Spain is at La Granja, which she is not expected to leave till the 10th September. Her Majesty will then go to the Escurial, where she will remain a few days. On the 20th ult. the representative of the Emperor of Mexico arrived at Madrid, and left for La Granja, to present let- ters to the Queen, announcing the Emperor Maxi- milian's accession to the throne. Tho National Assembly of Greece met on the 25th ult., when M. Messinezi was chosen Presi- dent. He was the ministerial candidate, and ob- tained 182 votes M. Delyorghi, the opposition candidate, received 142. One of the members of the opposition sent an insulting letter to fie King, which, after an animated debate, was met by a vote, expressing the indignation of the As- sembly, carried the next day, by 193 votes to 27 28 members abstained from voting. The differences between Turkey and Montene- grin, in reference to the frontiers, are, it was an- nounced on Saturday, satisfactorily settled. The Levant Herald of the 17th ult., iuforms us that the Turkish Government has entirely stopped the dealing in Circassian slaves. We learn, by a tele- gram from Bucharest, dated Saturday, that the Prince, by a decree, has abolished compulsory la- bour, and announced that the peasants can become landed proprietors on paying an indemity to the landowners. The insurrection from Tunis is far from being suppressed. Advices to the 21st ult. inform us that 14 tribes had submitted, but 40 remained in insurrection; several chiefs, advising peace, had been killed, and the people continued to demand the dismissal of the Kasnadar. In Algeria an ex- pedition had been sent to drive the insurgent population from Tell. There had been fires in the forest of Constantine, which had been ex- tinguished, but at the last accounts they had again broke out. Important news arrived from America last week, about the time our journal was going to press the dates were August 12 from New York. It appears that the Federal Admiral, Farragut, had obtained possession of Fort Gaines, by the treachery of the Commander, Colonel Anderson, and that all the Confederate fleet, with the ex- ception of one vessel, had been destroyed. The Confederates had blown up Fort Powell, leaving the ship channel to Mobile open for the advance of the Federals, who, we learn by a later arrival, Jted commenced shelling Fort Morgan, which had successfully resisted the attack. There is nothing certain from Atlanta. The Federals acknowledge the loss of 3,000 men and 10 pieces of cannon, on the 22ad of July; but they report the Confeder- ates U have lost 10,000 men in the various affairs near t'he town. The Confederates say the Fede- rals were handsomely repulsed in an attack on the lines at Atlanta on the 6th inst. Wood is re- ported to have been heavily reinforced by Wheel- er's cavalry, and to have demanded the surrender of Dalton, Georgia, the Federals having also re- ceived reinforcements, refused, and drove Wheeler off. The reports from the Shenandoah Valley, of the 12th inst., state that Sheridan was pursuing Early, who had got immense supplies, his line of waggons occupying three 'miles. On the 18th it was reported in New York that he had received reinforcements, and was again advancing north- wards. In a telegram from New York, of the 19th ult., Sheridan is said to have defeated Long- street, and taken 300 Confederate prisoners and in one of the 20th we are informed that he had been defeated, and had retreated to Harper's Ferry. It was also reported, at New York, that 1,500 Confederates had crossed the Ohio river, at Saline Bay, and captured a river steamer. Another Confederate force threatened Henderson, Ken- tucky. The accounts from Richmond state that Grant, on the 13th ult., had routed a large Con- federate force at Dutch Gap, capturing 500 men and 7 guns. His troops held the Gap, and, in another direction had advanced within six miles of Richmond. The population were leaving Peters- burgh to avoid the Federal shells. The resigna- tion of Mr. Stanton, confidently reported when the previous vessel left, is contradicted. A mon- ster meeting, at which 100,000 persons are said to have been present, was held at New York on the 13th ult. The speakers condemned the govern- ment of Mr. Lincoln, and unanimously nominated General M'Clellan as a candidate for the Presi- dency. Great agitation prevailed amongst the press and the people, and the desire for peace was increasing. A peace convention had'assembled at Syracuse, and passed resolutions in favour of a Peace Candidate for the Presidency, and of an armistice. Advices received on Saturday from the West Coast of Mexico, via San Francisco, inform us that Anapulco had been surrounded by the force of Alvarez. Gen. Meraya had declared for the Empire, but only a few hundreds of his men fol- lowed him. A large liberal force held Colina. The Emperor had sent Senor Frazio to represent him at Madrid. The West India mail brings dates from the is- lands to the 15th August. They were generally healthy. At Demerara the shipments of produce exceeded those of any former season. It was ex- pected the crop of sugar would be the largest ever manufactured. The crops at Barbadoes continued to improve. At Jamaica business transactions were limited. Intelligence from Hayti say that General San- quefosse, and the ringleaders in the late conspiracy had been condemned and executed. Another at- tempt to overthrow the government had been frustrated. The President, on opening the Legis- lative Session, spoke in high terms of the moral and material improvement in the condition of the country. From the Pacific the news is not very important. Nothing had occurred between Peru and the Spanish fleet, since the departure of the last mail but despatches from Lima say that the Peruvian Government was prepared for the worst, and is, with the co-operation of its fleet, ready to en- counter and defeat Admiral Pinzon, and the Spanish frigates, and show Spain that the nation- ality of Peru is not to be tampered with. ality telegram from Suez gives Bombay dates to 9th of ult. It informs us that Sir C. Trevelyan has recommended the introduction of the sover- eign into India as a legal tender for 10 rupees. Should the recommendation be acted upon, it will settle the vexed question of a gold standard for India.
FROM OUR PRIVATE CORRESPONDENT. I LONDON, THURSDAY EVENING. The Queen is at Balmoral; the Princess Helena, Louisa, and Beatrice, and Prince Leopold, being with her. The Prince and Princess of Wales are at Aber- geldie Castle; and they will embark at Dundee, on Saturday afternoon, for their Danish trip. The Princess Royal is at Potsdam. The Frinoeu Alice, by this time, at Darmstadt. Prince Alfred is in the North Seas. Prince Arthur in Switzerland. The Duchess of Cambridge is at sea. The grand Duchess of Mecklenburg Strelitz at Geneva. Last night, the Duke of Cambridge and the Princess Mary left England, for Geneva, to join their sister. Such is the present disposition of the royal family; which could not be much more dispersed. We have had several members of the Russian royal family in England; but they are about leaving. They have been in London, where nothing seems to interest them more than the British Museum. The Grand Duchess Olga Nicolajeona, wife of Alexander, Prinoe Royal of Wurtemburg, was there on Saturday; and on Tuesday, the Grand Duchess Marie Nicolajeona, and he* husband, the Duke of Lemhtenberg, visited the Museum, remaining some time. The Corporation of London is a rich body. Its in- come for 1863, from all sources, was X478,462 6s. õfd. The expenditure amounted to E465,178 12s. 9id.; leav- ing balance of £13,283 12s. 8d. in favour of the Cor- poration, on the 31st of December last, The outlay On the occasion of the Prince of Wales's marriage was E50,335 6s. 4d. The reception of the Princess" cost £ 23,644 14a. Id.; the present from the Corporation to her royal highness, £ 10,000; and the expenses of the entertainments given to the Prince and Princess at the Guildhall, was A16,640 5s. 8d. In Tuesday's Gautte, a proclamation appeared proro- guing Parliament from the 13th of October, to Friday, the 11th of November, and the Convocation, from the 14th of October, to Saturday, the 12th of November. Nothing is settled, as yet, respecting the Lord Lieu- tenancy of Ireland. The Earl of Carlisle has improved in health since his arrival at Castle Howard. He takes frequent drives in the surrounding country, and was able to attend divine service last Sunday; it is not ex- pected, however, that he will be able to resume his du- ties. A decision ought to be come to soon. Ireland, at the present moment, should not be left without a re sponsible government. The Earl and Countess Russell, and Lady Georgin* Russell, are about to make a tour of the Lakes, on their way to Scotland; and they will also visit the Earl and Countess of Minto, at Minto House, near Warwick.— The Earl and Countess of Clarendon are now expected home, every day from Germany-Lord Palmerston goes to Hereford on Tuesday, to inaugurate the statue to the late Sir G. C. Lewis. Amsterdam has its Crystal Palace-a handsome glass and iron edifice, in which an exhibition, of works of Flemish skill and industry, is now holding. It is in- tended, I believe, to make an effort to get up an interna- tional exhibition in the Dutch capital, ere long. The building is characterised, by a recent visitor, as one which does infinite credit to the great city of canals, and bespeaks for the Dutchman the taste which appre- ciates a new.style of architectural art." The Emperor of Russia is expected at Berlin, on the 5th of Sept. He will sup with the Crown Prince and Princess at Potsdam, and proceed the same night to Darmstadt. The King of Prussia is expected to return to Berlin about the 10th. The Emperor of France, Prince Humbert and Prince Napoleon are at Chalons, where the manoeuvres of the troops will be witnessed by military envoys from various foreign courts.—The Emperor received news from Al- geria, on Tuesday, not very agreeable. Forty tribes out of 54 are said to be in arms and the chiefs who re- mained faithful to France, were murdered by their own men. Despatches have been received from Mexico to the 1st of August. They were more favourable than those previously received. Expeditions were preparing to drive the Juarests from the places they occupied; and Juarez, himself, had taken to flight. A combined naval and land expedition was preparing to establish the im- perial authority on a firm basis at Matamoras. Peace is not re-established amongst the South Ameri- cans Republicans. There are accounts from Buenos Ayres to the 29th of July, when hostilities had com- menced. Peru and Chili were both preparing for a struggle with Spain, if it were forced upon them. The papers of Cadiz, Valencia, and Barcelona are urging Spain to erect a fortress on the Chiucha Islands, which these journals consider to be legitimate Spanish pro- perty. There is another arrival from America, with further details of recent events, and of the defeat and retreat of Sheridan. After being ronted at Winchester by the Con- federates General, Breckenridge, he retreated to Harper's Ferry, and recrossed the Potomac on the 19th ulk Grant had made an assault on Petersburg, and been re- pulsed with the loss of 3,000 men. On the 15th the Con- federates were repulsed in an attack at Deep Bottom. On the 18th Warren occupied the Weldon railroad, at Reams, but did not succeed in dislodging him. In the North- west the Indians were again making themselves trouble- some.
