Riots, Carlisle

The Carlisle Journal states, that tumult and disorder at present prevail in that neighbourhood, and to a greater extent than at any time since the disturbances first broke out. It then proceeds to enumerate a variety of outrages since the 15th, on which day the corn-mill at Monk-hill, near that city, was broken into, and plundered by a number of persons. Even the asylum of the poor is not spared by these offenders. On Monday night, the 18th, the workhouse of St. Cuthbert's parish, at Harraby-hill, was entered by one of the windows, and a quantity of bacon and hams taken away.
