CARNARVON. BRUTAL ATTACK.—One of the most unmanly and unprovoked acts that it has ever been our duty to record, occurred at an inn in this town, on the evening of Monday last. As a man who had just arrived from Anglesey was drinking a glass of ale, a young scoundrel, who is well known, burnt his face around the eyes with caustic, disfiguring the poor fellow in a shocking manner, and adding the danger of both his eyes being seriously injured, if not ultimately lost. Our informant recommended the poor man to ispply to the Mayor for redress. Accordingly on Wednesday, the offender, Richard Owen, was brought before T. Turner, Esq., mayor, and the offence bring fully proved, he was committed for trial at the ensuing assizes but on the application of Mr: Powell, who appeared for the defence, he was held to bail.
