SCANDALOUS OUTRAGE IN SOMERSET. /A very daring outrage was committed on Saturday night, at the residence of Mr. George Maggs, of St. George's, Euston-in-Gordano. The marauders, who were apparently some eight or ten in number, are described by Mr. Maggs as having been all masked. In order to get upon the premises, an outer door had to be passed, and this was forced open from the orchard, and the gang were approaching the house door when they were encountered by the occupier, who had left the dwelling to ascertain what was the matter. Being very courageous, he seized one of the fellows and attempted to drag him into the light, so as to see who he was. Upon this the others attacked Mr. Maggs, and some of them having got their hands inside his cravat they garotted him, and at the same time dragged him about, tearing his clothes to pieces. Upon their letting him go, the illused man was for a little time half-stupefied, but on recovering himself he ran into the house and called for his gun, upon hearing which the fellows, who probably knew that he is a very resolute man, decamped.
