Revival of Hungerford Market.

At a meeting held on this subject on Monday, it was stated to the shareholders that the bill was now in progress through Parliament, and that there seemed no reason to apprehend opposition to it. The plans and estimates submitted by the architect were entitled to attention, on the ground as well of their evident utility as of the moderate scale of expenditure. Of the shares constituting the capital of the company, a large portion (1331) were already taken, and there seemed no reason to doubt that the undertaking would be carried into effect. The opening of this market will be one of the first benefits arising from the New London Bridge, and the consequent free navigation of the river.
