Some sensation was prodUced on Tuesday afternoon through Marylebone,. by several seizures made on householders for arrears of House. and Window taxes. A large body of Police were stationed in the neighbourhood, to suppress any tumult. and prevent . hindrance or obstrtiction to the Sheriff's Officers in making the levies. The first seizure was 'upon the proprietor of the King and Queen publiehouse, corner of Duke Street and Oxford Street; who imme- diately paid the demand. This example was followed in all instances where a distraint was made.
