The Electric Telegraph
The Pocket states that the Midland Great Western Railway Company have made arrangements for the immediate erection of the electric telegraph wires between Dublin and Galway. The work will be done without a moment’s delay, and it is hoped that the telegraphic communication will be completed before the arrival of the first trial steamer from America.
