CONWIL EL VET. 1 r.1 AsSAULT--The peace and goodwill which should exist, especially at the beginning of a new year, was unfortunately broken at this village through a fracas, on New Year's night, between the water-bailiffs, police, and some of the inhabitants. Hard aud damaging blows were giveu and received on both sides. The officers, it is alleged, using their staffs rather freely, as Dr. Edwards was afterwards employed for an hour or more dressing the wounds of the civilians. Various conflicting statements are made as to the occurrence, but as summonses and cross-summonses have I een issued by the several parties engaged, and returnable for Saturday next, we do not consider it advisable to give currency to any of these. It will be remembered that a few weeks ago three persons from the neighbourhood were convicted and fined for salmon poaching. Unfortunately with a mistaken zeal some from the district got up a concert to defray the costs. The concert was he'd New Year's evening, under the presidency of Rev D. Picton, and as was prognosticated by some, this so elated the ,masses, that after the meeting they paraded the village, martyrising the convicted ones, and singing songs. Later in the evening the fracas referred to happened I between some of the party and the officers. For particulars we must wait for the version of the I parties at the Police Court.
