REBECCA A%D lawless mob in tL" neighbourhood of St. Clears have again committed a darinc outrage On Friday, the ma;;istrales for :7':C county met at the Shire Hall, Carmarthen, to deliberate respecting the riotous transactions at the St. Clears during the past month, Sftd fo lake measures for the apprehension of the ringleaders. I| p proceedings on that occasion were strictly private, but the le- sult has been thar a troop of the Royal Marines from commanded by Captain Wilson, was stationed at St. Cltsf, and a great number of the old pensioners from Carmarthen re- ceived ordeis to proceed te the same place- J'he reward fat the apprehension of the offenders was also increased from £ 50 Ic I £ 100. Notwithstanding thc-c precautions, the rioters sent a ( message to the Marines, to the effect that they were about to t pay a visit to the gales, and that they should be glad to meet IIlieni. Between three and four o'clock in the morning, a de- tachment of twenty Marines, accompanied by four officers, set out for the gates, to ascertain if the men intended carrying iheii threats into execution. When ihev ariived at Trevaugliati gate. it was found to have been levelled lo the ground, and 'prl of the toll-house destroyed. Not one of the rioters was to be seen, however, the band having dispersed in different directions after they had levelled the gates. On each of these excursions the mob, consisting of a large number of men and boys, all of them well mounted, and mosi of Ihem dressed in women's liP, parel, and nearly all armed with guns, pistols, pitchforks, hay. knives. leaping-hooks, crowbars, or tome oihei weapon-— a;e invariably beaded by Rebecca, who is described as being art", markably tall and strong man, well disguised, and who appeal* to have unlimited authority over the lawless crew who tern themselves her children. The toll-keepers are dreadfully afraid of iliptii, and the mob is the tenor of the surrounding rountiv. The farmeis in the neighbourhood have refused io he sworn io as special constables, and many of 'hem have paid site fine i-f £ 5 for such refusal. Tbe whole of tbe peasantry in that pa of ihe county appear to be io a stale ol the greatest escitemef, and we fear ibe disuu'e will not be put an end to without ti e effusion of blood. We have just been informed that one of ILe rnnb can be identified, nnd will at ooce be apprehended. meeting cf the representatives of the various neighbouring pa rishes was held on list, when several resolution-* were passed, which are to be printed and circulated in the d; turbed district. THE BOX TCNNEL,—There is a remarkable lie traveiii through England at the present moment, to wit, that the Gre t Western Railway Company have determined to lake the top < h the Box Tunnel, to unbox it, and to make it no tunnel a 11, just as the llighgate-arch people served their tun some thirty years ago. \Ve are enabled to slate from aui: ""Y. and that is no less than the Company's engineer, resi.ts at Box, that the Company have never contemplated the act that it would cost £ 2,00t),000 io excavate the woik, and almo-t £ 1,000,000 more to carry away and purchase land on which t" deposit the excavated earth. A meeting of the trustees of the Hereford district of lnidp:k roads was held on Wednesday last, at tbe Shire-hall, Herefor-i, for the purpose of electing a clerk, in the room of Mr. Bell, resigned. The candidates were, Mr. Hardwich, solicitor, and Mr. Thomas Lucas, solicitor, (late managing clerk lo Mr. Cleave, solicitor to the Trust.) Mr. Haidwicb had 51 votes, and Mr. Lucas 14, so that the former was declared to be ele". ted by a majority of 37. An active canvass had been carried on by the friends of both parties, and there was a Urger num- ber of trustees present than had ever met before. COLLECTION- or THE INCOME-TAX.—It may not be generally known that each parish is answerable for the defalcations of the collector. If he fail to pay the tax to ihe receiver the par y assessessed must pav it over again. The 43id of Geo. Ill cap, 90. sec. 14, afford- protection against ibis evil. Accord- ing to that Act two parishioners being I;tx.payers, churchwar- dens, or overseers, can demand security from the colleclor. II 'he Commissioners after Ih's ilemnad, to enforce the se- euriiy, then they, and not the parish, uftl be liable for any de- falcations that may rake e on II", pr: ol Ibe colleclor.
