A communication wes received from the Wakefield Union drawing attention to the great hardship now inflicted on these Unions in which county gaols were situate. It appeared that when a prisoner was discharged from gaol in a destitute condition, he was taken to the workhouse of the Union in which the gaol was situited-if his settlement could not be ascertained. It was proposed that an alteration should lIe made in the law, rendering the prisoners in such a case charge- able to the union in which tlie offence for which they were incarcerated had been committed. The matter would be discussed at a conference to be held at the Strand on the 10th inst. The Clerk (Mr Rowland Browne) pointed out that Carmarthen was in a very unfair position in this respect, because the gaol belonged to the three counties and they had sometimes to take in prisoners who had been convicted at Pembroke and Aberystwith. It was agreed to instruct the Clerk to write to the Wakefield Union telling him that the Guardians were strongly in favour of his proposal.
