IT is plain that the spirit of semi-barbarism which prevailed in the mining districts of the country thirty or forty years is not yet extinct in f;ome parts of the Rhondda Valley. Two cases which were brought before the Pontypridd stipendiary yesterday are only a sample of the horrible brutality shown from time to time by the moro depraved among the Rhondda colliers. In one case an Irishman was again brought up on remand charged with putting a lad of 14 on the fire, and afterwards dropping him in scalding water, so far Lack as the 9th of last month. The doctor attending the injured lad said he would not be able to attend for another fortnight. This means that the victim of the Irishman's brutality will have suffered five or six weeks' pain from the burns and scalds he received, and it remains to be seen what punishment the administrators of the law will think sufficient for such wanton cruely iuflicted, is is said, for no other reason than because the'boy refused to give up a pipe which the accused man SULLIVAN said belonged to him. In the other case, heard yesterday, a young Welshman was changed with biting a piece from the chin of another man, with whom he persisted in quarrelling. The piece of skin and flesh bit out was the size of a shilling. Yet the stipendiary magistrate thought the infliction of a fine of £ 5, or in default a month's imprisonment, was I sufficient punishment for such a horrible case of cannibalism. Sueii lenigncy is not, we fear, very much calculated to decrease cases I of the nature we are now referring to, among the Rhondda miners.
