NEWPORT. PENDING STRIKE OF RAILWAY PACKERS.—On Satur- day night a meeting of representative packers from each of the gangs working between Woollaston and Cardiff, on e r on the South Wales section of the Great Western Railway, was held at the Greyhound Inn, Newport, for the purpose of taking into consideration the advisability of applying to the directors of the Great Western Company for an .ad- vance of 3s. per week upon the present rate of wages, viz., 15s. The matter was discussed calmly and with due con- sideration as to the step which was about to be taken, and after arguing as to the reasonableness of their claim, it was resolved to memorialise the directors through Mr. Owen, the inspector at Paddington, and notice would be given that if a favourable answer was not received by the 12th inst., the men would strike on the 19th. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.—The usual meeting of the Guardians of the Newport Union was held at the Board- room on Saturday; Lord Tredegar in the chair. There was a large attendance of guardians and officers. The master reported the number of inmates in the house to be 258 admitted during the week, 6; discharged, 11; died, 1; # children in the Caerleon schools, 126; small-pox patients in the Old Barn, 21. Several communications were read. The question of appointing a Vaccina- tion Officer was adjourned for a week until the appointment had been properly advertised. The discussion on the matter of the Chaplain's salary was defer- red till Saturday next. The report of the committee cn the management of Caerleon Schools was brought up by Colonel Lyne. It having been read, Mr. Bennett, the superintendent, made a lengthy reply, contending that no charge of incompetency could be fairly maintained against him. After a protracted discussion, the Board agreed to accept his resignation. The clerk was instructed to advertise in the usual way for a superintendent and matron. It was reported that the nurse at Caerleon School was about to resign. The clerk mentioned that Meshach Davies, late assistant overseer, had not yet paid up the amount due to the Board from the parish of Machen Upper; and he was instructed to call upon the bonds to make good the sum due, and for which the Guardians had given Davies time to pay. This concluded the business. SHEEP STEALING -At the County Police Court, on Sa2 turday (before Mr. W. S. Cartwright, Captain Pearson R.N^ and Mr. T. Cordes), James Rudge was brought up on remand charged with stealing seven sheep, the pro- perty of Mr. Bennett, Penhow. Prosecutor said that on Wednesday evening, February 21st, at half-past six he left the sheep safe, but on going to them the next morn- ing, at seven o'clock, found seven missing from the fold. He got on his pony, and went in pursuit on the Chepstow road, and near the Cross Hands he found two of the sheep, and in a cutting a little further on he found the re- mainder. He went to Newport, and informed the police. Mrs. Anstey, wife of a butcher, at Maindee, said the pri- soner came to her house on Wednesday evening, and offered for sale seven fat sheep.-William Brooker, butcher, of Newport, stated that on Thursday morning, the prisoner came to him and said she had seven sheep to dispose of at £ 3 10s. a piece, but he refused to trade.— inspector Shepherd said he apprehended the prisoner at the Greyhound, Christchurch.
