AN ALARMING AcorDENT.-Oll Monday evening, while a gang of men employed at the new asylum works at Caerleon were engaged in removing one of the boilers, weighing twenty tons, a crab gave way and the boiler fell a distance of fifty feet. One of the fitters, who was at work at the winch received cuts on his head by being struck by the handle, and the new boiler-house was completely wrecked. Had the boiler slipped a moment or two sooner it would have fallen upon the gang of men working underneath, for they had only just got out of the way when the accident happened.

ALLEGED HIGHWAY ROBBERy.-Henry Mitchell and William Hinds, labourers at the new asylum works, Caerleon, were charged on Thursday, at a special police court, with robbery with violence, it being alleged that they stole E5, two books, and a bottle of rum from Cornelius Callaghan in the White Hart Lane, Caerleon, on Thursday night. Prosecutor's statement was that upon leaving the White Hart Hotel, at 10.35 on Thursday night he saw the defendants, who were strangers to him, and ha passed the remark to them that he supposed there were no lodging-houses in Caerleon. Hinds offered to take him to his house, but as a matter of fact they took him down the lane. Mitchell seized him by the throat, and put his hand in prosecutor's waistcoat pocket, while Hinds put his hand in another pocket and took out the rum. Prosecutor shouted for the police, and the two men ran away.-P.C. Harris said he went to Mitchell's house, and there found the two men under the influence of liquor. Callaghan immediately identified the men as those who had robbed him. They denied having taken anything from Callaghan, but Mitchell's wife said Hinds brought a pint bottle of rum to the house just before eleven o'clock. The constable found the empty bottle on a shelf. The prisoners were remanded in custody.
