LAHOCH WAR IN AMERICA, The following letter which appeared in the Western A/ail of Tuesday will be read with in- terest by many of our readers. It is written by Mr, David Jackson, the son of Mr. Joshua Jackson of the Harbour Bnn, Porthcawl, who is employed at the Carnegie Works, where open war has broken out between the men and their employers. Mr Jackson writes I hope you will excuse my writing with a lead paacil, but I know you will be glad to have a line from me, as, I suppose, you have seen in the papers that have had a deadly conflict with our employers. But I am glad to tell' you that I esoaped without a scratch, thank God. Dear parents, to attempt to describe the battle would be useless, because it was so terrible I told you in my previous letter that I thought there would be trouble, and so it came to pass. The company employed about 300 men to shoot us down like dog6, and we were prepared. They came by boats no the river, but we would not lat them land. Then the shooting com- menced, when the Pinkerton men got driven back and they got defeated for the first time. They surrendered to us, and we got all their guns. So we are well pre- pared for tb-imt when they come next time, but the Pinkertons made it hot for us until we got the cannon to boom. r have got one of the Pinkerton'a guna it is a sixteen.sbooter-45 bullet, and a repeater rifle. I have sent you a good many papers, which I hope you. will read and preserve them for future reference. The papers sent give you a true account of the affairs. I will write you again in the course of a few days. We are watching the mills day and night. The women were bringing coffee and food to us in the ruills, as we could not leave our posts of deadly duty. But we could not eat much nor drink under such terrible con- ditions. The women wore with us night and day, and when ehe Pinkerton men gave up they had it badly with. the women." v
