reaching the Guildhall square, both the parties
joined, they proceeded to the workhuuse shouting
out in Welch, and being joined by many of the
Welch inhabitants of the town. On their reach •
ing the workhouse they broke open the gates of
'the court in front, and having geined an entrance
into the house, they immediately demolished the
furniture, and threw the beds and bedding out of
the windows. Fortunately, whilat they were thus
pursuing the work of destruction, a troop of the
4th Light Dragoons, who had been seat for by
express from Neath, art ived, but in such an exhaus- '
Ted state that two of the troopers' horses fell dead
from excessive fatigue. One of the rioters seized
the head of one of the soldiers' horses, and was
cut titian by him. This excited fresh furyin the
mob, and the yells tecarrie tremendous. The solo.

The Mayor and magistrates then assembled at the
workhouse, and having examined the prisoners,
they were most of them conveyed to the goal in

country people to come to the rebcue of the

his subscribers were antimasons, and he
never considered it a duty to oppose the

Messrs Editors.—A writer in your paper of yes

Licenses but asserts that no such discretion exists,
and that 'every person applting as required by
law, is entitled to license,' irrespective of such dis•
cretion. Whether the Court erred or not in the
exercise of their 'supposed discretion,' 1 will not

they shall find a very great degree of misery and
de-titution resulting to tl sir fellow—men, and to
the wives and families of their fellow men, from
the scarcity of houses fur the sale of vmous and
