A few days ago a determined outrage was perpetrated on a sheep walk named Moelyprisk, in the county of Brecon the property of Colonel Powell, of Nanteos, formerly M.P. for Cardiganshire. The sheep walk consists of some thousands of acres, and in order to prevent the land being grazed and otherwise made use of by the farmers on the border of the walk, and the right of common thereby acquired by them, the landlord about two years ago in conjunction with the tenant, built a house on the waste (Esgair Garthen) and placed a man to live in it as shepherd. This person with his wife and child only six weeks old were the only occupants of the house so built. The husband being away and the woman and child in bed, a party of about 15 men entered and ordered her to get up because they intended to pull the house down. She did so, and immediately afterwards the whole building, together with the hay and turf stacks on the premise, was set on fire. The woman was not allowed to dress herself previously to being evicted, and accordingly in her night dress had to travel with her child for several hours before finding shelter at a hospitable farmhouse called Garreghoyd. A handsome reward has been offered by Colonel Powell for the discovery of the guilty parties.
