TENBY. MEMORIAL BRASS TO THE LATE MR. CHARLES ALLEN.âA handsome memorial brass to the memory of the late Mr Charles Allen, J.P., of 10, Norton, has been placed in the Town-hall here. The cost was defrayed by a public subscription. Foil a couple of hours on Saturday night several of the streets at Tenby were tilled with a riotous and disorderly mob, caused by a large number of men of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, stationed at Penally Barracks for ball tiring, coming into the town and afterwards into contact with the civilians. The row commenced in St. George-street, the police being unable to do anything. Stones were thrown and several persons struck, one being an officer of the regiment in plain clothes, who received a nasty blow on the head whilst endeavouring to get the soldiers to retire to barracks. The picquet were of little or no assistance. A man named Frederick Smith received a bad cut on the headâ necessitating the aid of Dr. J. G. Lockâeither from a bayonet or the buckle of a soldier's belt. It is presumed from the former, as he now has in his possession the bayonet wrested by himself from the soldier who struck him. This is the second Saturday night that the town lias been in the same disturbed state, and complaints are loud of the insufficiency of the police to cope with such a number of soldiers if they are disposed for a row. It was past midnight before the streets assumed their normal quietness.
