DISTRAINTS IN NEVERN AND ji WHITECHURCH. STRONG ESCORT OF POLICE. On Wednesday Mr J. P. Howell, High Bailiff of the County-court, under the protection of Deputy-Chief Constable Phillips and 21 police officers, started from Cardigan for the purpose of recovering tithes due from farmers in the parishes of Nevern and Whitechnrch. against whom action had been taken in the county-court under the new Act. The party occupied three brakes. Mr Howell a few weeks ago entered the parish of Whitechurch on the same mission, accompanied by only two policemen but the attitude of the people was such that he refused to proceed again unless ho was sufficiently protected. On the previous occasion, it will be remembered, whilst the high bailiff and the officers were distraining at a farm, some person thought it his duty to go and cut the traces sfcnd harness of the horse attached to the vehicle with a knife, so that a set of harness had to be borrowed from the Vicar of Eglwyswrw to enable the dis- training party to reach home. On Wednesday the distraining party paid a visit to three farms in the parish of Nevern, at two of which the claim was satisfied. The other tenant was from home, and a distress was effected and the note attached to the door. At Whitechurch things did not run quite so smoothly, the spirit of an- tagonism being much more prevalent in this parish. On the way to one farm the high bailiff narrowly escaped a "ducking" whilst erossim' a stream over which was a narrow footbridge. The high bailiff's son preceded his father, and when the latter had reached the middle of the foot- bridge some person caught hold of the old gentleman and swung him round. Had it not been for the prompt action of P.S. Rosser, who went to Mr Howell's ..assistance, FNE result probably would have been a "ducking. In making for another farm, a very exciting scene occurred near the entrance gate. The entrance had been barricaded, and several persons were posted on both sides of the barricade to prevent the intruders from coming over. Mr Howell insisted on his rights to go over the barricaded gate, and the police cleared away the persons who were there mounting guard. very dexterously the pole FORMING the upper portion of the barricade had been fastened by means of a slight material, and when the officer of the law put his weight on ic it gave way under him, to the great amusement of the bystanders. When Mr Howell had effected an entrance a man carrying a heavy stick requested him not to tres- 'VRSSRJAN *L'M 'LC* SHOULD rot go that way. .well, however, insisted, and while stall insisting narrowly escaped having to feel the weight of the heavy stick carried by the anti- L', AS a blow was aimed at him by the over- zea.OUS defender, and only averted by the police Inis enthusiast will probably have to suffer for his conduct. Mr Howell succeeded in distraining- at the four farms he visited in this parish and unless the tenants pay before the expiration of the notice sales will probably bo effected in the course of a week or so.
