Toll Riots in Wales and a Tax Auction Disrupted in Spain

From the Cambrian:

The Riots in Wales.

Mr. Hall, chief magistrate of Bow-street police-office, leaves town this morning, by the direction of Government, for Wales, for the purpose of instituting a rigid and searching inquiry and examination into all the circumstances connected with the “Rebecca riots” and disturbance in that part of the kingdom. We understand Mr. Hall will be accompanied by one or more legal gentlemen from London to assist in the inquiry. — Standard. — [We understand that Mr. Hall passed through Swansea for Carmarthenshire.]

A dispatch from Spain from , carried in the London Daily News, reads in part:

It seems that two Barcelona Hampdens, master carpenters, have refused to pay a certain tax, the collection of which, since the end of June, being unauthorised by the cortes, has, in fact, become illegal. In consequence, their tables, chairs, and other wares, were seized and put up to auction in the Plaza del Palacio, on . There was an immense concourse of people, but not a single bidder appeared for the confiscated goods. Even the porters refused, after the unsuccessful attempt at sale, to take back the furniture to the Custom-house. The tax refused is called “trade-subsidy,” and perhaps is destined, like our shipmoney, to become famous.
