the same County.
The Officer dispatched from the Dublin to serve the order of the King's
Bench on Thomas HAMILTON, jun., of Roscrea, arrived in town on Monday night,
having effected the object of his mission. Mr. HAMILTON, on receipt of the
order, denied that he had ever written any such Letter to the Right Hon. the
Attorney-General, alleging that it must have been written by some malicious
individual. He was in bed about eight o'clock on Friday morning when Peace
Officer ROBINSON effected the service of the order. He is bound to show
cause six days after the day of service.
AFFAIR OF HONOR-Informations having been received on Usher's-quay Police
Office, of an intended Duel, to be fought on Tuesday morning, at eight
o'clock, in the Phoenix-park, two Peace-officers repaired to the Fifteen
Acres at the appointed time, and succeeded in taking into custody one of the
Principals, a Mr. SHANNON, of James-street--and the two Seconds, Messrs.
CLIOTH and SHEIL.--On the appearance of the Peace-officers, the other
Principal, Mr. JERRETT, of the Bay, County Meath, rode off the ground.
BELFAST MAIL ROBBERY-Mr. FARRELL, Chief Peace-officer at the Head
Police-office, yesterday apprehended a man named GORALLY, on suspicion of
being concerned in the Belfast Mail Coach Robbery. On his person were found
a pair of boots and a black lace veil, which can be identified by some of
the passengers from when they were taken.
Jan. 27-On Saturday night last, nte Coach-house of Captain JOHNSON, on the
lands of Creaves, in this County, was feloniously broken open by an armed
banditti, and ten bags of wheat carried off on cars, brought for the
purpose, towards the New-Bridge. This is following up the last orders of
John ROCK to pay no rent, the wheat having been some weeks before distrained
and sold for rent.
Mr. Serjeant TORRENS, on Tuesday, adjourned the Sessions under the
Insurrection Act for the County Limerick on Saturday. There were only two
for trial who were acquitted.
A very fine body of Major POWELL's corps of Police, mounted and dismounted,
marched from the King's County into Trim, on Tuesday last, commanded by
Lieutenants HEDERSON and ELLIS, who were to be stationed in Meath.
Castlebar, Jan. 27-There is more disease in this town at present, (chiefly
fever) than has been remembered. Furnerals are very common and we
understand, that out of our small population five were lying dead on
Saturday night. A permanent Fever Hospital would be a great acquisition.
There appears to be a feeling against it on account of the expence, but we
entertain no doubt that such an Establishment might be very economically
managed, and would be found most useful.
A Pamphlet has just been published by Mr .MILLIKEN on the subject of the
Orange System, which is likely to produce considerable sensation. It is done
with great calmness, and considerable force of reasoning, and yet with
proper spirit.--Its object is to demonstrate the absolute necessity under
which the Government will find itself of breaking up the Orange Confederacy
in toto. We recommend the Pamphlet to the careful perusal of Readers
belonging to all Parties.

"THE POWERS THAT BE"-COMING DOWN.
"Defend me from my friends, and I will save myself from my enemies," is an
observation never more true than in reference to the Corporation and paper,
which contains a foolish article about the improvements near Ennis by the
County of Clare Gentry; and states, that all goes wrong in Galway because
the People resist the Corporation "Powers that be."
Now, before 1812, for forty years there was not the smallest resistance to
Mr. DALY's influence here. The election of the Member did not last half an
hour-his horses did not wait to be fed in Galway while he was returning a
Member. This surely ws perfect obedience to the "Powers that be," yet, what
was the disgraceful neglected state of Galway? what was done for it while
public money was flying in every direction? and £9000 a year Patronage with
the return of the Member disposed of (not to any Galwaymen) without
consulting an inhabitant of Galway. So much for obedience to "the Powers

The interesting ceremony of the reception of a nun at this Convent, took
place on Monday last, when Miss MARTYN (daughter of the late Dr. Oliver
MARTYN) was received. The Chapel was extremely crowded by teh most
respectable families in this town and neighbourhood, of different religious
persuasions, and all seemed to feel the warmest interest in the striking
ceremony.--An excellent sermon was preached by the Rev. Joseph KIRWAN, being
one of his first public discourses, and there can be no question he is
destined to rank very high among the preachers of Galway. He preached upon
the text of the Apostles-"If you be risen with Christ, seek the things that
are Above-mind the things that are Above, and not those on earth."--He drew
and animated picture of the blessings of instruction communicated by the
charitable Ladies of the Presentation Order to thousands of poor children,
who could otherwise walk the dreadful paths of ignorance and vize, and of
the eternal rewards awaiting such ???? efforts of charity in another
world.--The Very Rev. Warden FRENCH put the usual questions with great
solemnity to hte Novices which were answered by her with great firmness and
precision. The usual ceremonies of robing, &c. were then gone through, in
the most solemn and impressive manner, accompanied by the deep-toned and
self-executed hymns of the organ and ??? choir, and the whole produced a
striking impression on the minds of every individual preent.
On yesterday morning at Newcastle, near this town, Mrs. WHELAN, relict of
the late Captain WHELAN-much regretted.
In Cross-street, on yesterday, much regretted, Mr. P. MALONEY, of this town.
Begs leave to inform his Friends and the Public that he has lately returned
from Dublin, where he selected from the best manufacturers in Ireland, for
Cash, the following Goods.-
Gentlemen's Patent Silk (Warrented Waterproof) Hats.
Gentlemen's Beaver Plastic Waterproof, ditto, Warranted not to spot with
With a large assortment of other Qualities, &c,&c.
Boys Black and Grey, ditto;
Ladies' and Childrens' Beaver Bonnets;
All which will be sold at Reduced Prices for Ready Money.-Galway, Feb 6,
TO BE LET
From the 1st of May next, for such Terms as may be agreed on,
The Lands of Kilcooly, Carranduff, and Pooling, within three miles of
Loughrea-No preferences wil lbe given but to the best Bidder and most
solvent Tenant-The ground is too well known to need any recommendation.
Application (if by letter post paid) directed to Hyacinth Richard DALY, Esq.
Dominick-st., Galway, will be attended to.
The lands were lately occupied by Mr. WARD, and are of the best description.

LIEUTENANT FRANKLIN'S CASE-BAIL FOR MURDER
On Monday, the Bench was moved to admit to bail Lieut. FRANKLIN & Patrick
THORNTON, charged with the murder of Thomas HEHIR. The facts of this case
have already been before the public; and which had arisen out of a seizure
of illicit malt in the County of Clare. The learned Counsel quoted the
statute 46th King, ch. 106, wherein if a revenue officer should be
obstructed in the execution of his duty, he was warranted to repel force to
force, and if in consequence any thing fatal occurred, it became imperative
in a Magistrate to admit such officer to bail. Counsel stated that Mr.
FRANKLIN was assailed by teh deceased together with a mob of 200 persons,
crying out in Irish to attack him, and upon which several stones were flung.
Mr. FRANKLIN pursued the deceased,but his horse having stuck in the bog, he
followed the deceased on foot, who turned round with an uncommon wattle and
made an effort to give him a blow which he followed up by a second, and a
third; and reduced Mr. FRANKLIN to the necessity of defending himself; he
put his hand into his pocket and drew therefrom a pistol and fired at HEHIR,
which unfortunately mortally wounded him. He therefore contended, under all
the circumstances of the case, Lieut. FRANKLIN was entitled to be admitted
A young man then addressed the Court and stated, that this was a proceeding
which was not expected, and prayed for further time before the parties was
admitted to bail.
The Lord Chief Justice desired that Lieutenant FRANKLIN should be admitted
to bail, himself in 500l. and two sureties in 200l. each-and that THORNTON,
whose circumstances were not so good, would be admitted to bail in 100l. and
two sureties in 50l each.
And in reply to the observations of the individual who addressed the Bench,
that the ground of their decision lay in the information of the deceased-so
that there was no likelihood of a failure of justice.
ENNIS-February 3. --On Thursday night last, an armed banditti, consisting of
eight men, attacked the house of a man named VAUGHN, near Bradford, and
demanded from him spirits to drink General ROCK's health, on getting which,
they departed without paying for it, after informing the man that the
General was not yet dead.--Clare Journal.

FATAL ACCIDENT ON THE ICE
On the 23d ult., a melancholy occurrence took place on the late of
Castlestrange in the demesne of Thomas MITCHELL, Esq., in the County of
Roscommon. A man of the name of CASEY, in crossing an arm of the lake, had
not proceeded many yards upon the ice, when it gave way, and he sank
immediately; but having accidentally found footing on a rock, he was not
perfectly overwhelmed. He encouraged the hope of being saved by the arrival
of three brothers of the name of KILROE, who, with true Irish courage and
humanity, ran to his assistance. One of them had succeeded in fastening a
rope round his waist, when the ice gave way again, and he also sunk. His two
brothers, anxiously, but inconsiderately, rushed towards him at the same
moment, to share alas! with a friend and brother, their premature and watery
grave. The four bodies were found in a few hours after, the hand of each
clinging to the rope. One has left a widow, and another a widow and a child
to suffer by their loss. The father of the three KILROE is an object of
great pity; old, feeble, and indigent, he little thought that in one fatal
hour, his three fine lads, the props of his declining years, were to be cut
off in the spring of their days. It is fortunate that the families resided
on the property of a benevolent landlord. A fifth lad, of the name of
KEEGAN, in endeavouring to save the rest, escaped by the ice breaking where
the water was not so deep.
HOUGHING OF CATTLE
We regret to hear that some evil-disposed persons slaughtered three cows
in-calf, the property of Mr. John M'DONOUGH, of Lettersdee in Cunnemara,
within a few miles of the gentleman's house. Mr. M'DONOUGH, it seems, is
High Constable for the district in which he resides; and on other reason can
be assigned for the barbaroud and wanton act, but his activity in
apprehending some ruffians in his neighbourhood, who had been guilty of
sheep-stealing. No doubt the Magistracy will use their exertions for the
detection of these inhuman micreants; and we take this opportunity of
putting those in the leather trade in our town on their guard against
persons of a suspicious appearance who may be offering hides for sale-the
horns are branded with the initials, "J.M.D."
An imposter calling himself BLOOMFIELD, nephew of Sir Benjamin, and passing
as a mendicant friar, is travelling in the Counties of Cork and Kerry.-He
was in Skibbereen last week.
We preceive that the discussion of the Catholic Question is fixed for the
20th instant. There never was a time more important for Members to attend.
No doubt our County Members will both be present to support by their voice
and suffrage this important measure. This great County and all Ireland will
have their eyes fixed on the interesting discussion.
On Friday last, an Inquest was held by Wm. BLAIR, Esq. Coroner, upon the
body of Patrick M'LOUGHLAN, at Bohermore, in the east suburbs of this town,
(as mentioned in our last) when the Jury, upon the examination of Witnesses,
found the following verdict: --" We find that the deceased, Patrick
M'LOUGHLAN, now lying dead, at Bohermore aforesaid, came by his death by
being wilfully murdered by Patrick LYNSKY, at Bohermore, from the stab of a
knife given to him by the said Patrick LYNSKY."
On Sunday, the 11th instant, and Inquest was held by William BLAIR, Esq.,
Coroner, upon the body of John CONNEELY, at the west suburbs of this town,
when the Jury, upon due examination of Witnesses, found the following
verdict:-"That the deceased, John CONNEELY, came upon his death by the
visitation of Almighty God."
The late James WRIGHT, Esq. of Newry, has left 500l to the poor of that
town,and 40l to the poor of Donnybrook.
>From the 5th ult to the 5th inst, those active and enterprising Officers of
Excise, Messrs. THOMAS and GLYNN, accompanied by Lieut GRAVES, and the
detachment of the 3d Revenue Corps stationed at Gort, seized six copper
stills, still heads and worms; twenty gallons of spirits; 47 barrels of
malt; and destroyed 21 illicit distilleries, with 54 fermenting vessels,
containing 1680 gallons of pot-ale and singlings, and arrested nine persons
found in illicit distilleries and malt houses.
The Protestant Bishop of Killaloe had been pleased to appoint the Rev. R.
GABBETT, of Newmarket-on-Fergus, to the Rectory of the United Parishes of
Castownarra, Youghalarra, and Burgessbeg, and to the Vicar-Generalship of
the Diocese of Killaloe, vacant by the death of the Rev. Doctor PARKER.

Auditor-General, island of Coolabagh.
At Loughrea, on Wednesday last, Frances Margaret, only child of the late
Francis DREW, of Drewsboro' in the County of Clare, Esq.-She expired about
nine o'clock in the evening, rejoicing in the "sure and certain hope" of a
glorious resurrection to eternal life, through the death and merits of the
Son of God.
On the 31st ult., in Gardiner-street, Dublin, much and deservedly regretted,
Jane, only daughter of William LOGAN, Esq., of Woodlawn, County Dublin.
On the 5th instant, at Kilternan House, near the Scalp, County Dublin,
Richard ANDERSON, Esq. Barrister at Law, Captain Commandant of the Kilternan
Yeomanry; an upright and intelligent Magistrate of the Counties of Wicklow
and Dublin; as a good man, an active Magistrate, and truly honorable
Gentleman,his loss is truly great to the Country-afflictive to his
particular friends (and they were many and much attracted to him) but his
large and amiable family-poignant and irreparable indeed.

CLARE.-On Thursday morning, the houe of John KENNA, in the parish of
Ogonnelloe, was forcibly entered by three men who had their faces covered
with handkerchiefs-they succeeded in plundering the house of half a hundred
of butter, some lard, sixty yards of flannel, two pieces of linen, some
wearing apparel and bed-clothes.
John Scott VANDELEUR, Esq., of Ralahine, is to be High Sheriff of the County
of Clare for the present year.
FEB. 7- This morning a man was found dead on the road side, beyond Clareen
Bridge, near this town-we have not heard the cause of his death; an inquest
will be held on the body.
A very melancholy instance of sudden death occurred in this town on Tuesday.
A young woman, wife of an industrious man named DERMODY, who had been in the
custom of minding a standing in the street for the purpose of disposing of
hardware, after going home was suddenly seized with spasms, which in a few
hours deprived her of life. By means of the caeserein operation she was
immediately delivered of twin sons, and the three coffins were yesterday
deposited in one grave.--Clare Journal.
ABDUCTION- A young man of the Queen's county side of this neighbourhood,
carried off the daughter of a person named HAUGHY. The father collected a
party, and pursued the offender, who, when taken, on his refusing to marry
the girl, was beaten in such a manner as to endanger his life.--We hear the
father has absconded.--Gar*** Morning Post.
LIMERICK, Feb. 5-On Sunday night, a farm house on the lands of Brianstown,
in the North Liberties of this City, was visited by a large party of
ruffians who entered the house, and after removing the care-taker, his wife,
and such furniture as belonged to him, deliberately set the house on fire,
which was shortly consumed. Mr. RUSSELL had lately set the farm to a man
from the neighbourhood of Park, who had not yet taken the possession of it.
Immediately after the fire, a party of Captain DROUGHT's very efficient
Police proceeded to the spot, where they made prisoners of some suspicious
person found straggling on the road.
On the night of the 24th ult., a rick of hay, containing upwards of eighteen
tons, on the lands of Ballyveshanbee, near Effin, was maliciously burned.
On the night of the 26th, an armed party attacked a house at Crigane; they
broke the windows, sashes &c; wounded two servant-men with a sabre on the
head, nad beat a woman, who had charge of the house, in a cruel manner.
On Friday night last, an armed party burned a farm-house and out-house,
belonging to David HARTIGAN, on the lands of Fort.
The house of Fortlands, occupied by James MORRISON, was attacked by an armed
party on Sunday night, in search of arms. They administered several oaths to
two female servants.
A letter from Doneraile states, that on Sunday, during the time of Divine
Service, a party of eight men, five of whom were dressed in women's clothes,
attacked the house of James FENNEL, Esq. the name of whose residence is
Landscape, situate near the town of Doneraile.
Two men were taken into custody by Mr. NAGLE, one of whom had flints and
other articles belonging to fire-arms, but direct evidence of their having
been concerned in the attack has not yet been obtained.
Last week a quantity of barrack bedding was put on cars in the town of
Banagher, to be sent to the Reverend J. CONNOLLY, of Ballingarry, for the
use of the poor in that district. They had scarely left town, when they were
attacked by a vast concourse of people, principally women, who carried away
the entire of the bedding (about 100 set), before a guard could be procured.

STATE OF THE COUNTRY
We regret to state, that in the County of Cork, near Charleville, from the
24th of last month to the first instant inclusive, three houses belonging to
Gentlemen were attacked for arms, one house burned and a haggard set on
fire. In the barony of Duhallow, in the same County, nearly three hundred
pounds worth of corn, belonging to Mr. John BOYCE, was consumed. "The
Military," says our account, "came in half an hour after, to look at the
flames, but that was all." What were the Constabulary doing! The Cork
Chronicle has a curious paragraph, "We heard," says the Editor, "from a very
competent and respectable authority, that, in some instances, where
application is intended to be made for compensation, through the Grand
Juries, at the ensuing Assizes, for Corn said to be maliciously burned,
opposition will be given, on the ground that the Straw only was consumed,
and designedly too, by the Proprietors, the Grain having been previously
In the County Tipperary, near Holycross, the house of a Farmer, and some of
his property were set on fire, and several shots discharged at himself and
his family, in their efforts to rescue some Cattle from the flames. The
Police, on this occasion, have been on the alert, and two of the
Incendiaries have been seized and lodged in prison.--D.E. Post

The Dublin Papers received this evening inform us that three of the
principal Officers of his Excellency's household have been dismissed from
his service in consequence of their conduct at a late political dinner at
Morrison's. Their names are Sir Charles VERNON, Captain STANHOPE, and Mr.
ST. GEORGE. When the immediate Officers of the Crown oppose its interests
and government, a smiliar line of conduct from the ignorant and uninformed
Ribbonmen may easily be expected.

Ennis, Feb 13.-On Tuesday last, Captain BURKE, having armed a party of
between 30 and 40 men, went to drive for Tithes near Killaloe; on their
return they were attacked by the country people, who rescued the cattle,and
succeeded in taking the arms from Captain BURKE's men, who fired upon the
assailants and wounded two of them. Half of the arms have been restored to
On Saturday morning the gable-end of the house of Patrick BARRY, at Clonna?
was thrown down by lightning, and a boy who was in bed very severely
scorched. A girl that slept with a child of BARRY's was slightly injured,
and a dog lying near the bed was killed. Two cows, out of six, which were in
an out-house were also destroyed, whilst the other four remained unhurt.
About one o'clock on Friday morning, the house of a man named Patrick
CONWAY, near Killaloe, was attacked by a party of about twelve ruffians, who
broke the doors and windows, but on their attempting to enter, they were
bravely opposed by CONWAY and his two sons, who had armed themselves with
pitch-forks to defend their property. Old CONWAY having at length
incautiously got a candle, one of the villains fired a pistol into the
house, the contents of which lodged in the shoulder of young CONWAY, by
which it has been dangerously fractured. One of the villains exclaimed that
"he had been at many a brave fire in the County of Limerick, and he would
have the pleasure of burning this house also, as they would not be suffered
to enter." He then set fire to the house in three different places, but one
of the gang, more humane than the others, immediately extinguished it. One
of the ruffians ascended the house, and began to uncover the roof, until he
was compelled to desist by old CONWAY, from the inside with a pitch-fork.
This old man, notwithstanding he is above sixty years of age, behaved in the
most spirited and resolute manner, and although he was knocked down with a
stone, and received a severe contusion over the left eye with another, yet
he declared, when repeatedly called on by the gang to surrender, that he
would not, unless with his life, and one of the party, in attempting to
force his way, was stabbed by him in the face-the party after having fired
three shots, were surprised by one of the inmates of the house, returning
home, and immediately decamped.
On Thursday night, as Mr. Thady CAULFIELD, of Ballymalone, county Clare, was
in company with a few friends, he dropped dead on the road. An inquest was
held on the body, and a verdict returned--"Died by the visitation of God."
Limerick-Feb 12-The houses of William MAUNSELL, Esq, Mr. Edmond PALMER, and
Mr. M'CARTHY, in the North Liberties of this City, were attacked last night
by large bodies of ruffians, who succeeded in taking fire-arms from each
On Sunday night last, Major MAXWELL, accompanied by Captain M'LOUGHLIN, a
party of the 57th regiment, and some of Major CARTER's Police, apprehended
eight fellows, in the counties of Cork and Limerick, on good information,
concerned in several outrages in both counties-buring corn, hay, and
attacking houses. One of the same gang (Daniel CONNELL) was committed to
Cork jail, by Major MAXWELL, some time since.
About a fortnight ago, a fine wether [transcriber note-definition: a male
sheep castrated before sexual maturity] was killed on the lands of
Ulla-hills, the property of Mr. R. RYAN. On Monday night, a fine ewe, the
property of the same gentleman, shared a like fate.
On Sunday night last, at twelve o'clock, two fellows entered the Charter
school-house, near Charleville, while Mr. SHERLOCK and the children were at
church, and one of them having kept some young ladies prisoner in the
parlour, the other, armed with a pistol, searched the house for arms,and
finding none, retired.

On Monday afternoon, as Mr. BURKE, of the county Galway, was riding up
Sackville-street, his horse took flight, and ran away with him over
Carlisle-bridge, and coming in contact with another horseman in

ATTACK ON THE WATERFORD AND LIMERICK MAIL COACH.-AND FORCIBLE ABDUCTION OF A
On Sunday last, about two o'clock, p.m. as this Coach was proceeding between
Tipperary and Limerick ,it was stopped at about eight miles from the former
place by a party of People, from twenty to thirty in number, seven or eight
of whom were armed. When they stopped, BUTTLE, the fuard, who was in his
place behind, discharged his pistol at one of them, who was armed, and who
held on of the wheel horses, by which he recieved a wound in the neck, or
near the ear, as he fell against the horse which he had hold of and the
blood was seen to flow from the wound by the coachman. Immediatley on BUTTLE
discharging his pistol, another of the party struck him with a stone, as the
Coachman believes, and knocked him off the Mail-boot, on which he was
standing at the time, and afterwards some of the party dragged him across
the road, and threw him against the ditch. The assailants then opened the
door of the Coach, and forcibly took out a young woman, who was an inside
passenger. Two of them took her away across the fields, while the rest
remained on the road, until the Coachman, DOYLE, came off the box and got
BUTTLE into the Coach, into which also he put the arms. They then permitted
the coachman to drive off, and he met no further interruption until he
reached Limerick. The young woman, we understand, was going to Limerick for
the purpose of being married. It is surprising, notwithstanding all the
examples which had been made from time to time for the prevention and
punishment of this offence, that they still hold out no terrors for such
TO THE EDITOR OF THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
I remember to have heard my great grand-father say, that in ancient times,
the Daughters of Freemen in Galway were entitled to confer the freedom of
the Corporation of Galway upon their husbands. If this be so, Sir, I request
to know why I should be restrained from helping to lash the monster who has
plundered me of my fortune. I am the daughter of an honest old tradesman of
Galway-My poverty, and not my will, has been the means of obliging me to a
single life. At first, I was not aware of the extent to which I was
defrauded; but now I firmly believe that if my inheritance was not taken
away, and given to the bare footed gentry of Dunsdale-instead of brooding
over my misfortune, I would be now the mother of a numerous family. Upon
inquiry, I find this right is, and has been, from time immemorial, exercised
in Bristol. There, a contested Election is the signal for all the Young
Maids to get married. A Freeman there has no occasion for money to portion
his Daughters. The jolly Candidate provides the lads, and the girls make
freemen, full-grown, and then begin, anew, to make young freemen, and young
freemen's wives. I hear that those privileges, so "delightful", enjoyed by
the Citizens of Bristol, were conferred by Queen Bess upon our Galway
lasses. I pray you, Sir, to look to the Charter, and if it be so, only let
me be certain of the fact, and no power on earth shall deter me from
scourging the cruel monster with my own hands who dares to vindicate the
robbery-and to uphold the system, which dooms the men of Galway to slavery,
and the women (who, like myself, had no money,) to a life of celibacy-for
the purpose of returning to Parliament a man from the East, of whom we know
nothing, and for whom we care nothing, and who cares nothing for us. As to
all the talk of the "withered scribe", about his letters,and such like
trash, I have only to say that I look into no man's letters but my own; and
if I want to find fault with the public conduct of a public man, I took to
his public acts-and if I wish to find out who is the man to work this
Corporation best, I have only to look, in the order to see who the fellows
who writes for the Corporation abuses most, and then, at once, I decide who
is my friend. This fellow talks and blusters about all that was to be done
by the great Member we have got. But I look to the pavement of the
streets-who did that? Will any man say, that it was not Mr. BLAKE? Would the
streets (I ask) have been paved, but for Mr. BLAKE? Then, gain, is there a
dark, blustering night, that his acts do not blaze forth, to give joy and
security to the fishermen.-What was there ever done to benefit the Town and
Trade of Galway, equal to the two light-houses erected by his exertions. Be
united, my boys, and I shall have two husbands yet.

Cork, Feb 17-It is with sincere regret that we have been compelled to advert
so frequently to the continuation of those nightly violations of the peace
of the Country, and the destruction of the property of private individuals,
in some of the Northern Parishes of this Country. It is now our painful duty
to state, that this morning, between one and two o'clock, some malicious
incendiaries proceeded to the lands of Lisnanowen,about six miles from this
City, on the old Mallow road, and set fire to three stacks of corn, some
hay, and an out-house, the property of Denis TWOMEY, which were totally
consumed. After this destructive and lawless act, not satisfied with having
succeeded in avenging their supposed wrongs on the poor proprietor, this
party went to the house of a widow DELES, and unprotected female, when they
further glutted their destructive spirit by setting fire to three stacks of
corn and some hay, which were also entirely consumed.
It appears from the investigation made this morning upon this outrage, that
it had been excited by the sufferers having lately taken a part of a small
farm, by which the former proprietors had been displaced. This is, however,
only surmised as the most plausible reason why parties hitherto unoffending,
should now be visited with such a wanton and dreadful
Cork, Feb 18-On last Wednesday morning Doctor FOLEY and his brothers, sons
of the late Mr. FOLEY, of Ballyclough, destrained some lands within half a
mile of that village, for rent and arrears of rent, amounting to about 400l.
They seized over fifty head of cattle, cows, horses, sheep, &c, &c, and
lodged them in Ballyclough pound. About the hour of one o'clock on the same
day, from four to five hundred county people assembled, made a dash at the
pound, liberated the cattle, and destroyed the pound walls. What gives a
remarkable feature of daringness to this outrage is that the pound was
situate in the middle of the village, adjoining the church wall, & a
military party, with a few of the Police, were not more than 300 yards from
the spot; and when some of the people of the village, who were standing by,
refused to join in the riot, they were threatened with consequences that
would insure their ruin. Twenty-five of the these daring violators of the
public peace, we understand, have been recognized, and informations sworn
against them before Colonel LONGFIELD.
On Wednesday night the house of Dr. NORCOTT, a most respectable man, who
resides at Cottage, in the neighbourhood of Flower-hill, was entered by
these men, who told the Doctor they were desired by Captain John Rock to
demand thirty shillings from him. Doctor NORCOTT said he would give them
none, as he had no money in the house. The leader of the party, who with
several others remained outside, cried out, "Dont be trifled with; plunder
the house." The fellows hesitated, and the Doctor remonstrated with them,
when the leader again cried out, "Take this watch," which one of them
immediately did. They then left the house; and the Doctor, thinking it
better to lose a pound than his watch, sent his servant-maid after them with
it. On her calling, four of them returned and delivered them the watch,
taking the pound note; they then fired several shots. Whilst in the house,
one of them raised a blunderbuss to strike one of the servants, when six
balls fell out of it, which Mr. NORCOTT afterwards picked up.
Considerable interest has been excited in the neighbourhood of Monastereven,
by the fate of an uncommonly fine young man, who, not being able to prevail
on his Parish Priest to marry him to his cousin, of whom he was enamoured,
went to America, where he remained three years and a-half; but hsi
attachment being undiminished, he returned, and obtaining a license from his
Bishop, was, two months since, united to the highly interesting object of
his choice. Last Tuesday, this poor fellow went into a public-house, kept by
an acquaintance, at the instant that the wife of that person was grossly
insulted by a ruffian, singularly desperate, who he (being a very powerful
man) had no difficult to turn into the street, when he shut the door on him.
The offender said he would be revenged; and being asked in what manner ? he
replied, by beating his opponent. The other said, he was not able; and being
grossly abused, and dared to go out, he went to the door, when, in an
instant, he was stabbed in five places with a knife, so sharp, that the
villain, whilst drinking in the public-house, stated, he had that morning
shaved himself with it. The Coroner's Jury on Wednesday held an inquest on
the body, and pronounced a verdict of Wilful Murder; but the delinquent,
(who is said to have been a terror to the Country,) has not yet been
A farmer of good character, named GLACKEN, was, a few nights since,
prevailed on by some persons belonging to the Limerick Mail-coach
establishment at Toomevara, to stop at that village, lest he might otherwise
be injured in proceeding to his house, which was about three miles
distant.-The following morning he set off at eight o'clock, accompanied by
two young men, who were soon joined by a third. The stranger, after
conversing with them respecting the weather, took an opportunity to strike
GLACKEN with a bludgeon, which fractured his skull in a dreadful manner. The
young men seized the assassin, exclaiming that "he had murdered poor
GLACKEN; " to which he replied, "no, it was the Proctor, Larry REGAN." - At
this instant six men, armed with large sticks, sprung from an adjoining
field to his support, when the two young men, not having any means of
defence, ran back and gave the alarm, but too late for the apprehension of
the ruffian or his adherents. The unfortunate Proctor was waylaid a few
hours afterwards by the same, or some other party, and murdered.
AWFUL OCCURRENCE- On Tuesday morning the body of a man named John KEARNEY,
was discovered in a narrow lane on the lands of Dromboy, near Carrignavir.
In an adjoining field was found a bag containing the fat of sheep, two
knives, and his coat, fastened with a string round a quantity of wool, some
of which was also found in his breeches' pockets. It has not as yet been
ascertained where the sheep were killed. An inquest was held on the body by
Mr. O'BRIEN, one of the Coroners, and a verdict found of "Died by the
visitation of God." This is an awful visitation of Divine Providence,
which, we hope, will have weight with the numerous wretches who are pursuing
the same line of plunder, which has already stamped disgrace on our Country.
On Wednesday night a party of ruffians attacked the house of some Farmers at
Thresherstown, in the North Liberties of this City; and swore them whether
they had arms,and also demanded money to buy powder. They are supposed to be
some of our City robbers, who are beginning to take advantage of the state
of the Country to levy contributions.--Cork Paper.
Limerick-Feb. 19- Sunday last, between the house of eleven and twelve
o'clock at noon, a man went into the house of William BALL, a Palatine, and
member of the Adare Yeomanry, on the lands of Tuogh, in this County, and
seeing no person there but BALL's wife and an infant, he went out and
returned in a few minutes, accompanied by another man, with drawn bayonets.
They demanded fire-arms, which the wife denied; they then threatened her
with death if she persisted in refusing them, and having shewn them into a
room, where three muskets and fifty rounds of ball cartridges lay, she with
great presence of mind locked the door, and raised a hue-and-cry amongst her
brother's family, who immediately came to her assistance, with the fellows
perceiving, they got out through the windows, without taking either arms or
powder. An instant pursuit was set up, which was continued for some miles,
and had the good fortune to succeed in securing one of the ruffians in the
wood of Curra; his companion concealing himself in the wood, escaped.
Friday night the house of Tithe Proctor was burned by the Whiteboys at
Grenagh. his corn was consumed not long since.
Some burnings have also taken place in the neighbourhood of Liscarrol.
Clonmel, Feb. 18- On Wednesday afternoon, about half-past four o'clock, an
affray commenced between two factions at the fair of Mollough; near
Ardfinane, which threatened destructive consequences. Lieutenant PERCY,
Chief Constable of the Barony of Iffa and Offa West, having got information
of this intended affray, collected his Constables to prevent it, if
possible. When the fight began and the Police interfered to separate the
parties, both the factions turned upon them, commencing their joint attack
by first knocking down Lieutenant PERCY with a stick, and next pelting him
and his Constables with stones, by which three of the men were struck, two
of them were cut; and after a good deal of forebearance, the Constables
were, however, obliged to fire in their own defence, or they would,
ultimately, have been killed. The Constables were afterwards drawn off from
the old Church walls to prevent their being injured, and stop the firing;
and in the evening they took into custody a man named James DONNELL, who was
identified by two of the Constables, and information lodged against him
before the Hon. and Rev. A CAVENDISH; who came to the village of Newcastle
with a party of dragoons, fearing they would have farther fighting. Mr.
BARRY, the Coroner from Cahir, went yesterday to Mollough to hold an inquest
on the body of HALLY.--Advertiser.
Athlone, Feb 19-The Constables here took up yesterday a Committee of
Ribbonmen, sitting at Patrick NOBBITT's, in Glasson. They had all their
papers before them, but unfortunately they succeeded in burning all but one
precious document. The prisoners were under examination all this day. Four
of them have been discharged on bail, but one from Bessort, in the County of
Longford, has not yet procured any. The names are as follows:
Timothy MOREY, parish of Athlone; Patrick SHIRR, do.; Patrick MALADY,
Lessay, parish of Tubberclose; John MAGEE, Bessfort, County of Longford, and
Patrick SHUR, of or near Tubberclose. The books they were swearing on were
also found; also a paper, enjoining brotherly love, and not to deal with any
but Catholics, &c--Evening Paper.
On Thursday night, the 13th instant, the dwelling-house, dairy, and
out-houses of Nathaniel CRAMPTON, farmer, at Ballintagart, county Kildare,
were maliciously set on fire, and partly consumed, together with a good deal
of other property, and a quantity of wool, some spinning wheels, and several
articles collected there for the purpose of employing the poor in the
A few nights ago it was found out that a plan had been concerted between
five of the prisoners in the gaol of this town, to seize upon and gag the
Turnkey-after which they were to make a rush upon the guard, disarm them,
take the keys from the Gaoler, and liberate themselves, and the other
prisoners. The plan was defeated by one of the party, who having been
suspected by the others, received a severe beating, which exasperated him so
much, that he gave information.--Ibid.
Dr. Lewis O'BEIRNE, Protestant Bishop of Meath, died two or three days ago.
He was a Catholic who apostatised, after he had attained some rank in the
Romish Church. He was in his 83d year. His Bishopic was very valuable, and
it is supposed that he died immensely rich.
