f THE TITHE AGITATION. CLOSING SCENES IN CARDIGAN. SHIRE. A PROFITLESS PILGRIMAGE. NEWCASTLE EMLYN, Thursday Night. Thia morning Mr Stevens and an escort of about twenty policemen left here for the con- cluding tithe rates in Cardiganshire. The chief constable and Supt. Lloyd were in command. Two miles out of Newcastle a number of women threw stobes at the last police break and two men were struck. The offenders escaped. A profitless visit to Nantcoch and Blaenwaun was followed by another cheerless journey to Bridewell. There the freeholder said he would (I rather go to Carmarthen Gaol than pay the tithes." A stone weighing about three pounds was subsequently thrown at Mr Stevens's break from the neighbourhood of Penffos courtyard. The stone struck P.C, 26 on the back. After a smart chase the supposed stone- thrower was captured. He turned out to be Henry Linn,, a young fellow who works at Penffos. He fought hard against capture-hit and kicked, and called on the bystanders to rescue him. A number of men made a practical response, and one drove A horse against Police- constables 26 and 20, the officer who made the arrest. The latter drew his staff, but did not use it, as other con. stables put in a timely appearance. Linn was taken before the chief constable, and after having been interrogatedt was released. Meanwhile Mrs James, the young fellow's employer, advised the constables to drop the business they were about, and take to breaking stones instead of tithe collecting. The route to the next six farms lay over mountains and through valleys, but the pilgrimage proved an absolute waste of time and toil. A halt was made for refreshments, and then the main body of police and the chief constable returned to Newcastle, bound for home." A few men were drafted to the command of Superintendent D. Williams, to accompany Mr Stevens and his party in their visit to the remaining half. dozen farms. Tho old upshot followed—"No money" or "no sales." The party reached Newcastle at 5.30. But little interest was shewn by the country people in the proceedings. The tithe sales in Carmarthenshire and Cardiganshire then and thfire ended. The total receipts of the four days amount to £ 7 3i. Nothing has yet been arranged as to the date of the sales in Pembrokeshire. It was stated in our yesterday's issue that the not results of the previous three days' sale was £73. This was a mistake. The actual amount realised was £7 3S.
