A GRANT FROM THE BLACK PRINCE. An interesting dispute involving a question of villagers' rights has arisen. rodents of Golant Saint Samson, on the Fowey River, one of the two villages in England dedicated to the memory of St. Samson, the Apostle of Brittany, have from time immemorial raised and carted stone from the village commons, paying a two: penny impost for poor-rate in addition to the ordinary assessment. The natives claim that, although no charter is in possession of the parish, their rights were traditionally inherited by a grant from the Black Prince, as Duke of Corn- wall. in reward for services rendered at sea by the Gallants of Fowey. The lord of the manor is however, claiming dues for the stone raised, but it has been unanimously agreed at the parish meeting to take the necessary steps to resist the claims and to defend the case of the villagers.
