SWANSEA- ITR. GEQRGE THOMAS AND THE PAVING COMMISSIONERS.^« During the last few days an active canvass has taken plac;e amongst some of the professional gentlemen of this town, for the situation of Clerk to the Paving and Lighting Commissioners, ur consequence of the expected resignation of Mr. Geotge 'I hoinas. It will lie seen by our report of the last two meetings, that, owing to the non-attendance of the clerk, the office was declard vacant. During the sitting it transpired that various sums of monthly pay- ments. amounting to about jE200, had been received, from tha slau liter-house lettings. by Mr. Thomas, and not accounted for to the treasurer. Upon that disclosure being made a committet: was appointed to investigate the matter, and to adopt such means as might be deemed expedient. The sittings of the committee were private but we understand the result to be the issuing of a warrant for the apprehension of Mr. Thomas. After much -dis- cus-ion the committee ultimately engaged Mr. J. R. Tripp a.3 their solicitor in this very serious matter. At a late hour last evening we were informed that Mr Thomas was at that time in custody.— Cambrian.
