DESTRUCTION OF BOLGOED TOLL HOUSE & BAR, GLAl\10ltGAJIISIIIRE. At about a quarter to twelve on Thuisday night last, a party consisting of about two hundred men on foot, headed by Re- becca arrayed all in white and who rode a white horse, were seen approaching this bar from the direction of Pontardulais. The object of their visit was easily surmised, and the inhabitants of the ft'w houses in the neighbourhood apparently apprehen- sive of danger, retired within doors. Rebecca advanced to the toll house and demanded admittance, which having been given she directed a few of her troop to carry out the toll collector's goods and chatties to the side of the load, and to protect them from injury till they had completed the object of their mission. She then gave: the word of command for a total demolition of the house and bar, and actually, we aie assured, within five minutes the bar was cut to pieces, the house in ruins, and the whole party in full retreat. During the time they were engaged at work a portIon of their gang kept firing guns and huzzaing. J I hey too ie Carmarlhenshiie road and separated in various ways- e armers ot the surrounding district strongly con- demn this outbreak and state their willingness to have abided by the decision of the turnpike trustees, whom they memoria- Iised t e precedmg day. This bar is situated near a place called Goppa Fach on the mail road within a mile of Pontar- dulais and eight miles of Swansea.—Swansea Journal.
