SUPPOSED POISONING 0 F HORSES AT SWANSEA. Four valuable horses, belonging to Mr. T. C. Small, livery stable-keeper, Jeffreys' Arms Hote*, Oxford-street, Swansea, died in a mysterious man- ner on Wednesday morning, and four other. were found to be suffering seriously. It is supposed that the animals were poisoned, andja post-mortem examination of their bodies will be made. Our Swansea reporter, telegraphing on Wednes- day night, says :—From inquiries we made at Mr. Small's Horse Repository to-niglit, we regret to learn that a fifth animal has died from the same cause as the other four. It appears that the eight horses whjeh have been seized with the terrible symptüms were all healthy on Monday night when the ostler left the stables. On his arrival at six o'c1ock on Tuesday morning sowe of the animds were appare:1tly unwe]1. Rowen>r, one. a valuable animal, was taken into the country by a gentleman for a day's hunting, and on its return died at the Marquess' Arms, on the Carmarthen-road, three miles from Swansea. Another, which did a journey to Pontardawe, the driver had great di'Sculty in getting back to the stable. Outbid animal leav- ing. Mr. Small, as if by presentiment, remarked that the man had better take with him a draught, and if he found the horse suffering lie was to administer it, which. he had to do. Two of the animals succumbed on Tuesday, three more on Wednesday, and there is no hope of the recovery of a sixth, but the other two are improving. As to the cause ol the sad calamity there is some doubt; but it is supposed by the -post-mort.em examination made that the animals have been destroyed by some mineral lJoison. Mr. Small had in on Monday a load of clover hay from "VVhitiasd, with which the horses were rackup on Monday night, and which it is thought must have mysteriously contained the deadly ingredient. "This supposition is founded upon the i r.ct that, an animal in an adjoin- ing stable, which was not supplied with the new stock of hay, 1" not affected. The contents of the stomachs of two of the dead animals, and the re- mainder of the load of hay, with chaff, corn, and bran, which was found before the horses on Tues- day morning is being analysed, so that the cause of death may be ascertained. Great sympathy m felt for Mr. Small at such n serious loss.
