TRAPPING AN EXCISEMAN.--Mr. Machi, of the Inland
Revenue Department, was decoyed into a dungeon at
Nottingham, a few days since, by two Irishmen, whose
premises he visited in search of an illicit still. The dungeon
was provided with a trap door, which was closed upon the
exciseman, and he was not discovered until the following
day. In the interval, the Irishmen had removed all the
evidence of their illegal trade and decamped.

--The Cork Examiner, 11 June 1856
