ABERYSTWITH. THE QUEEN'S HOTEL.The Queen's Hotel, at Aberystwith, and the Devil's Bridge Hotel (formerly belonging to the Hafod Hotel Company, which collapsed on its own petition under the pressure of the panic and went into voluntary liquidation,) has been purchased from the Liquidator entire as a going concern by a new company (consisting in the main of the same parties subscribing extra capital), and registered as the Mid- Wales Hotel Company, Limited. Four of the old Directors, Mr. Balcombe, of course, as Managing Director, and Mr. William Tipping, of Brasted Park (Director of the London and North-Western Railway), will form the new board of Directors. The special meeting to confirm the necessary resolutions was held on Friday, 1st March, at the Victoria Hotel, Euston-square. In the interval of the collapse and the reconstitution of the Company, the Queen's Hotel has been finished by means of capital found by the Directors. It is now in complete and decorative order, and its accommodation exceeds one hundred bedrooms. We observe that Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Palmer, late of the Royal Hotel, Norwood, (Crystal Palace,) have been appointed managers of the Queen's whilst those old favourites, Mr. and Mrs. Bancks, will continue to cater at the Devil's Bridge Hotel.
