On Thursday, at Ballycallan Church, by the Rev. Hans CAULFIELD, Henry WEMYS,
of Danesfort, in the County of Kilkenny, Esq., to Lady Elizabeth CUFFE,
sister of the late Right Hon. the Earl of Desart. The populace would not
suffer horses to be put to the carriage of the happy pair, but drew it
themselves from Ballycallan to Desart House, and from thence the whole of
the way to Daneslott House, the ancient family mansion of the bridegroom and
in the evening bonfires were lit on all the eminences of the surrounding
country as marks of respect to an excellent landlord and to the virtues of
the most kind-hearted and benevolent of women.
At the Cathedral, Limerick, Lieut. FINCH, of the Carbineers, to Miss BRADY,
daughter of the late Captain BRADY, of said City.
At Doonus Church, William Adams BREW, Esq. of Wilbrooke, County Clare, to

At Madras, in August last, in the flower of his life, the Hon. Wm. Montagu
Douglas HOME, second son of the Rt. Hon. the Earl of Home. Mr. HOME was
formerly an Officer in the guards, and, from the late reduction, rather than
remain unemployed at home, upon paying the difference, accepted a
Lieutenancy in his Majesty's 41st regiment of foot, and was, as decendent
from his father, an immediate branch of one of the oldest and, for long, the
most powerful families in the south of Scotland. his mother was the daughter
of Henry Duke of Buccleugh.
Calf's Head Affair- Monday night last, Mr. John ARMSTRONG, assisted by a
number of constables, apprehended, under a warrant from the Rt. Honorable
Lord Oriel, seven men in different houses in the vicinity of this town, but
all in the County of Louth. We understand they are charged with being
concerned in the disgraceful act of placing the Calf's Head on the Altar of
the Catholic Chapel of Ardee. After a long investigation before Lord Oriel,
on Tuesday, at Collon, one man was admitted to bail on his own recognizance,
and the other six men were committed to the Castle of Ardee, for further
Dec. 30.- We are sorry to hear that there has been a very serious affray,
between the Police stationed at Borris and some of the country people.--We
have not yet heard the particulars. We are, however, sorry to observe, that
the common people have lately assumed a degree of insolence, which is by no
means warrantable; and carriers, returning from market, are, we understand,
in the habit of drawing their cars across the road, for the purpose of
impeding gigs and jaunting-cars. --Carlow Post
On Sunday (22d instant) the first mass was celebrated by the Rev. Mr.
CLANCY, in New Chapel of Upper Grange, on the estremity of the Parish of
Tullow. It stands on that part of the Earl of Besborough's estate usually
termed Slaney quarter, adjoining Killerig; that Nobleman having granted; by
free gift, with that generosity and beneficence, which has always
distinguished him, an acre of ground free for the site of the building, and
a School-house; this is intended as a Chapel of Ease for the accommodation
of the extreme Districts of the Parishes of Tullow, Rathvilly, and
Bennekerry, which, from their remote situation, being very distant from
their respective Parish Chapels, laboured under very great inconveniences
with respect to the hearing of Mass on Sundays and Holydays. It was to
remedy this inconvenience that the Right Rev. Dr. DOYLE granted his special
license and approval to the erection of the present building.--Carlow Post.
Dec. 27-The City of Armagh assembled on Saturday last, for the purpose of
addressing the Lord Lieutenant.
Some very contemptible party rioting disgraced our streets on Christmas
night. We, however, believe it may be easily traced to the influence of our
native Irish cordial -- the potteen.
A riot of rather a serious nature took place at Charlemont, on Christmas
night, between some of the Artillery stationed there, and some of the
Inhabitants. Several persons were, we understand, severly cut, some of them
dangerously-the riot had nothing to do with Political or Religious Party
feeling-it was of a private and family nature. --Volunteer.
On Friday night last a very durnken and fatal fracas occurred at a place
called Fermacaffly, near this city, at the home of John QUIN, a
farmer.-QUIN, a female servant, and a house-keeper, named Mary MAGUIRE, and
a labouring man named Thos. CANOVAN, who was also a tenant of QUIN's, and
worked for him, assembled in QUIN's house, where they drank three bottles of
whiskey. In liquor CANOVAN was a man of great violence and bad conduct, and
on this occasion he behaved in a most ungovernable manner-he seized two iron
crooks with which he beat a servant boy of QUIN's, named CULLEN, after which
he stove to break into a door of QUIN's, in which room hath he and the woman
retired for safety-having succeeded in getting in, he attacked QUIN, when
the woman seized a loaded gun which was in the room, and fired at CANOVAN,
who received the contents in his chest and lungs,and caused his death in a
few minutes. An inquest was held on the body on Saturday morning by Mr.
MAGEE, Coroner, and the following Verdict was found:-
"That the said Thomas CANOVAN came to his death in the house of John QUIN,
of Fermacaffly, in consequence of a gun-shot wound received in his breast,
of the breath of two inches, which penetrated the lobes of the lungs, and
that said John QUIN and Mary MAGUIRE, of Fermacaffly, were present, and that
said shot was fired in their own defence."
QUIN and the woman have been committed to gaol.
Dec. 28. On Thursday evening, two Privates of the 42d Highlanders were
assaulted on the New-bridge, by a fellow named John BOURKE. He first struck
one of the soldiers in the head, and knocked him down with a brick, which he
held in his hand, and then flung it at the other, who was also struck on the
head. The fellow then fled, but was stopped by a Policeman, who happened to
come in contact with him, when he was safely loged [sic] in gaol. The
soldiers identified him, and lodged informations of the fact.
On Tuesday night, two men watching the haggard of John HUNT, Esq., at
Mantle-hill, were attacked by a party with their faces covered, and within
200 yards of the house, who immediately knocked down the two men, and took a
gun from them, with which the party made off.
A few nights ago, the farm houses of CLOHESSY, CONNEEN, CONNORS, and
HANRAHAN, near Killmallock, in this County, were attacked by a party of men,
who were all prepared with firearms; they searched the dwellings for
muskets, and not getting any, they directed "that the money should be left
at a certain house to purcase [sic] arms and ammunition, as the business
they were about should be accomplished before New Year's Day."
On Christmas Day, during the hours of Divine Service at Ardenny Church, and
when Mr. JONES was reading the Communion Service, one of his servant maids,
left at the Glebe-house with some children, ran into the Church and informed
Mr. FITZGERALD, the Magistrate, that her Master's house had just been
entered by two men, who minutely searched for arms, and succeeded in
carrying away a musket in capital order. Mr. FITZGERALD immediately went
home, and getting information from Mr. HURST that he saw a small boat on the
Shannon with two men rapidly rowing towards the Co. of Clare shore, Mr.
FITZGERALD galloped off to Pallas and sent a party of Police to
Ringmoylann-Quay. It is conceived that the fellows came from the County
The Rev. George VINCENT of Shanagolden, accompanied by Mr. COLLIS, returning
from attending the Sessions under the Insurrection Act, at Rathkeale, on
Monday, were attacked near Kilcollin bridge by a party of fellows from
behind a ditch who threw several stones at them-they escaped from the
ruffians by the fleetness of their horses.
Thomas COGLAN's house near Clogneen was attacked on Saturday night; he beat
off with a pitchfork the assailants, one of whom was apprehended by Captain
WILSON's Police, in Clonmel, on Wednesday.
The house of FOGARTY; Tithe Proctor to the Rev. H. W. GRAVES, near
Templemore, was attacked for arms on Tuesday evening-the party were beat off
by the resolution of FOGARTY.
A treacherous assault was committed at Ballinakelly, on Christmas day, by a
fellow named Thos. CARRIG, on a man named LEAHY. A dispute having existed
between the parties, on their reconciliation, CARRIG asked the other man to
go drink with him; he complied, and whilst in the public-house received a
blow of a stick from CARRIG, which, it is feared, will cause his death.
CARRIG has, we regret to say, escaped.

At the Dominican Nunnery, on the morning of Friday, last, of a decay of
nature, Mrs. Honoria JENNINGS, aged 80 years, 52 of which were spent in
religion. Closely allied to the most respectable families in our County, she
gave up the vanities and enjoyments of this world, for the more solid and
lasting benefits which are attendant on a life sequestered from society, and
dedicated to the service of God.-Her remains were interred in the cemetery
of her Order.

ROBBERY OF THE BELFAST MAIL
On Friday night the Belfast Mail, when on its way from Dublin, was stopped
on the Ashbourne road, beyond Duleek, and within 7 1/2 miles of Drogheda,
near to an old burying-place. The banditti placed across the road several
carts, ladders, and wooden gates and when the coach arrived at the prepared
spot, there was a cry to surrender, which the guards answered by a
volley-this was returned by a fire from behind the hedges each side of the
road which wounded both guards; one of them, named Lewis BYRNE, received a
ball in his left groin, another in his left thigh, and one in his right
side. The other guard, named Gregory FARRELL, received a passing ball across
his forehead. The robbers (about fifteen in number) then surrounded the
coach, and took the fire-arms, consisting of three double-barelled short
guns, three double-barrelled brass blunderbusses, and four pistols; they
broke open the lockers, and took the Mail bag for Drogheda, and several
other parcels-there was a sum of 10,000l, in whole bank notes in part of the
coach, which fortunately escaped their search. The knowledge of this sum
(which was for the Belfast bank) being in the coach, it is thought
occassioned the attack. The robbers were two hours and a half arranging
their plans, before the arrival of the coach. They went around to the
neighbouring cottages, and after shutting up every person in their place,
and sending them in from their out-houses, they left an armed sentinel at
the doors to prevent their coming out. The occasion of their getting
possession of the Drogheda Mail bag was owing to the guard having it
uppermost, in order to hand out to the Post-office when passing through.
There were four inside and three outside passengers, all of whom were
searched and robbed of their watches and money-they also took the contents
of their trunks-there were five watches and about 100l taken from the
passengers, but they had no great booty in the Drogheda bag. The guard,
Lewis BYRNE, was removed to Drogheda and lies dangerously ill. There were
several shots through the body of the coach, but happily neither the
coachman nor passengers received the least injury. The coach afterwards
proceeded to Belfast.
Begs leave to acquaint the Nobility, Gentry, and Public that he has fitted
out the Extensive Buildings, Meyrick's-Square, College Road, lately erected
by Edward M'DONALD, Esq.- The Propietor pledges himself that the Rooms and
Beds are well aired; and trusts, from the moderate Charges, and every other
accommodation of the Establishment, to merit a share of public patronage
which it shall be his unremitting study and attention to deserve.
A Few Boarders can be accommodated on liberal terms.

MELANCHOLY WRECK and LOSS of LIVES
Our coast (Cork) has just been the scene of as disastrous a shipwreck as we
have had to record since the loss of the Albion at Garrettstown strand, in
the course of last winter, to which dreadful calamity the present is in a
great measure circumstantially alike, wit hthis additional local misfortune
attending it, that we have lost an upright and industrious fellow-citizen, a
native of England, who had resided among us for some years, and had earned
the good opinion of all who knew him.
On Wednesday night, about half-past 7 o'clock, the ship Wear, of Bristol,
200 tons burden, Capt. EMERSON, bound from thence to the West Indies, with a
cargo of coals, bricks,and herrings, but intending to call at this port, for
orders from Messrs. CUTHBERT and Company, was totally lost about a quarter
of a mile West of Ballycotton Island under the circumstances stated in the
account which we subjoin, fvurnished by the mate of the vessel, who is one
of the survivors. Of the crew and passengers, consisting of 36 persons, only
14 of the former were saved, having been washed on the rocks by the surf.
Among the former was Mr. JONES, the gentleman to whom we have already
alluded, who carried on the millinery and straw business in this city, and
was on his return from his native country, where he had lately gone, when
the Wear presented, as he thought, a favourable opportunity for him to come
home by, she being a large and nearly new vessel. There was also, we learn,
two ladies, one of them with child, who was proceeding from the West Indies,
where her friends and relatives resided. The shrieks of these unfortunate
females, when the vessel struck, and when all hope had fled, are described
in a letter from the affecting scene as truly agonizing; but the writer
adds, that the boldness of the coast and the fury of the storm rendered it
impossible to afford the least assistance. Some of the survivors escaped by
clinging to the masts and rigging, and dropping from thence on the cliffs
and rocks, so completely was the vessel driven on them.
Several of the bodies of the helpless sufferers have been thrown
ashore-among them those of one of the females, and of Mr. JONES, the latter
much mutilated, having been struck, we learn, by one of the masts or spars.
The following is the account given by the mate who survived:
"Ship Wear, of Bristol, bound to Cork
"Jan. 1st, at 7:30 p.m. sighted the Irish land, Ballycotton island, bearing
N.E. by N. distance estimation from three to five miles-blowing a heavy gale
on a sea running high, and no hope of clearing the land on either tack; made
more sail, it being the last resource; but, alas! in vain; at this time
close in the rocks, and no room to wear ship. At 9,30 p.m. let go the
larboard bower anchor, but to no purpose, which she immediately brought
home, and drifted with broadside on the rocks; and such was the fury of the
surf, that, in ten minutes after she struck, not a single vestige of the
vessel was then to be seen.
"And it is now my melancholy duty to related the loss of the Captain, W.
EMERSON; the pilot, George THYNER; seventeen of the ship's company, out of

ENNIS, Jan. 6 -On Thursday last Mr. FRANKLIN, officer of Excise, stationed
in Ennistymon, took out the division of the 93d regiment, from that town,
under the command of Lieutenant WHITE, upon revenue duty. Having made a
seizure of some malt, the party were followed by a great number of country
people, who behaved in a most rioutous manner, and headed by the eldest son
of a widow, from whom the malt had been taken, repeatedly threw stones at
the party, and particularly at the revenue officer. MR. FRANKLIN being a
short distance in advance of the soldiers, endeavoured to take the leader
prisoner, and for that purpose dismounted and followed him into a bog, but
the fellow seing Mr. FRANKLIN near him, turned round, and with a large
stick, which was made use of in the process for preparing the malt, made
repeated blows at him, the mob encouraging him to persevere and calling out
to "murder the guager." Mr. FRANKLIN having repeatedly desired him to
desist, and seeing no way of escaping, was reluctantly compelled to make use
of his pistol and fire at him; the ball from which, we regret to say,
entered at his right eye, and took a circular direction and came out near
the back of his neck.-Surgeon FINUCANE of Ennistymon, is in attendance upon
the wounded man, and has hopes of his recovery. Mr. FRANKLIN the next day
surrendered himself and is now in custody.
An investigation of the above circumstances took place in the Magistrates'
room in the gaol, before Major WARBURTON, and Boyle VANDELEUR, Esq; and
after the most minute inquiries, and the examination of several witnesses,
we have authority to state, the it plainly appeared, Mr. FRANKLIN was
compelled to make use of his arms to preserve his life.
We regret the necessity that Mr. FRANKLIN was driven to in self-defence, of
running any chance whatever of sacrificing the life of an individual, in
consequence of his own temerity in separating from his party, and thereby
encouraging, we may say, resistance from the peasantry.
A few nights since, a herdsman at Inch, belonging to Mr. John CONSIDINE, of
this town, was alarmed some time after he had gone to bed by a noise in the
haggard, and looking out, received such a desperate blow of a large stone on
the head from a person outside, that he has since been speechless, and now
lies with little hopes of recovery. What readers this outrage the more
distressing is, that this poor man has a wife and nine children. A few
nights before a dog that this poor man had for the purpose of watching the
haggard was poisoned, which makes it look like premeditated business.
ARMAGH, Jan. 3- The Volunteer, in allusion to its former statement of a riot
at Charlemont, between some town's-people and the artillery, says - "We are
now extremely glad to find that our Information was incorrect, and that no
riot occurred there."

A few nights ago a small party of fellows visited the village of
Robertstown, in this county, and took off from the house of James SHIRE a
musquet, which they returned on Thursday. The same party called at several
other houses, and demanded arms.
A farmer's house near Durnish, in this county, was attacked a few nights ago
by a party of ruffians, who were beat off by the inmates with pitchforks.
Monday morning, Lifford, the seat of the Rev. Wm. D. HOARE, near this city,
was found to be robbed, during the preceding night, of some plate and
wearing apparel, supposed by persons who entered by the kitchen window, and
removed the bolt from the door leading to the butler's pantry; the robbery
was committed without any noise, and none of the family heard the
perpetrators.- The same night Mr. LANGFORD's house was also robbed, but the
booty of the fellows was found at the top of the road near the demesne.
On Sunday morning, a man of the name of RYAN having gone out to shoot crows,
near Doonas, and not finding his gun go off, went into the house of his
neighbour, MULQUEENY, to strike the flint, in the act of doing which the gun
went off, and lodged the contents in the breast of the daughter of
MULQUEENY, a girl of about twelve years old; she was close to the muzzle of
the gun at the time, so that the shot had no time to scatter-it entered in a
close body, immediately under the right breast, and lodged in the lungs.
Surgeon WILKINSON, jun. visited the girl a few hours after the accident, but
on his arrival found her in the agonies of death, and beyond all human
Saturday evening, Patrick COONEY, son to a chairman, was stabbed in several
parts of his body, by a thief whom he was endeavouring to stop, running off
with some goods. COONEY is now in the County Infirmary.
At the City Sessions on Tuesday, before the Worshipful Recorder, a case
which excited considerable interest was tried, and occupied the Court from
eleven in the morning until five in the evening. It was a Criminal
Information against Stephen B. GOGGIN and W. Goggin GLOVER, Propritors of
the late Limerick Telegraph, for several false, scandalous and malicious
libels, published in various numbers of that paper. Every point that
ingenuity could adopt, and every apparent legal objection that could be
started by the traversers, was taken advantage of; but the able advocacy of
the prosceutor's Counsel in support of the case, which was clearly and
satisfactorily proved, was sufficient to bring home conviction to the
parties-who, after a most suitable admonition from the much respected Judge,
pointing out the enormity of this offence, and complimenting the
prosecutors, upon public grounds, for their conduct in bringing the matter
forward for the decision of a Jury, sentenced the traversers to be confined
for six weeks in the gaol, to pay a fine to the King of 50l, each, and to
find bail in 100l, and two securities in 50l each, to keep the peace for
seven years.--Counsel for the Prosecution, John HOWLEY, Esq.-Agent, Edward
SAYERS, Esq.-For the Traversers, John BOYSE, jun. Esq.
LIMERICK LOCAL TAXATION
By the Right Worshipful the Mayor of Limerick.
Whereas I have received a communication from the Lord Lieutenant, that his
Excellency has obtained information, from which it appears, that the peace
of the City of Limerick will be seriously endangered, if the Meeting; which
has been announced for Thursday next, in said City, should be permitted to
take place; and I have his Excellency's commands, that I should take all
necessary measures for preventing such Assembly, and give notice, in the
most public manner, of such intentions.
I do, therefore, caution all persons whatsoever from meeting or attending
such proposed Assembly, in any part of the City or Liberties of Limerick;
and do warn all peaceable and well-disposed persons against countenancing or
encouraging such Meeting, as they regard themselves as good and loyal
subjects, and would avoid the fatal consequences which might ensue by
persevering in assembling for such a purpose.
And I do hereby give notice, that if any person whatsoever shall presume to
meet, contrary to the commands I have received from Government, and in
defiance of my authority, they will be liable not only to be dispersed by
force, but they will subject themselves to the penalties of the law for such

January 8-Yesterday, a Special Sessions, under the Insurrection Act was held
at the county Court-house. A decent looking farmer of the name of DAVIS,
from the neighbourhood of Kilmaganny, was acquitted of the accusation of
having concealed arms, and was discharged. There were six more persons in
custody, but their trials, at their own request, were postponed to Thursday,
to which day the Court accordingly adjourned.-Every sitting of this Court
serves more strongly to excite the graritude [sic] of the county of Kilkenny
to Government for giving to its excellent Magistracy (as legal assistants
under this extraordinary statute) the aid of such intelligent, just,
patient, and impartial Lawyers, s J.S. TOWNSEND, and Gervaise P BUSHE,
ADDRESS TO THE LORD LIEUTENANT
On the adjournment of the Special Sessions, the Meeting of the County was
held to prepare an Address of Congratulation to his Excellency the Lord
Lieutenant on his late providential deliverance from a concerted
Robert FLOOD, Esq. High Sheriff, in the Chair.
We have only time and space to state in this number, that a Committee was
appointed to retire and prepare an Address; taht, after much deliberation,
they returned; that the Lord Bishop of Ossory, as Chairman of the Committee,
read aloud the Address, which they had prepared; and that the Meeting
unanimously, and with acclamations, adopted the excellent Address presented,
through his Lordship, by the Committee.
A curious and not unimportant Justiciary circumstance occurred in this
neighbourhood since our County Magisterial Supersedas was issued by the Lord
Chancellor. An outrage of rather a sanguninary nature having been
perpetrated, in which an old man was seriously, and one of his sons
dangerously, wounded; the other son, who happened fortunately to be absent
from home on the night of the attack, waited, on the next morning, upon one
of the preserved Magistrates, to lay the case before him. To the surprise of
the complainant, the Magistrate called on one of his servants to listen to
the story-which servant had heretofore appeared, on a trying occasion, as
the friend of a near connexion of the accused parties. The consequence may
be easily conceived; the young man's communications to the Magistrate were
known in half an hour all over the surrounding County, and his brothers and
father, who were dreadfully beaten, will not swear information before the
communicative Justice of the Peace.--Ibid.
January 9. - On Saturday night, about one or two o'clock, the house of
Daniel SULLIVAN, Proctor to the Rev. Mr. LEFANU, of Grenville, was attacked
by a large party of Whiteboys, all mounted and armed, who robbed him of his
Tithe-books, promissory notes, and several processes, which he had served
for the Sessions now holding in Fermoy. They afterwards proceeded to his
haggard, which they set fire to in several places, and it was totally
The same party, afer having committed several other outrages, then proceeded
to the house of Maurice HIGGINS; Sub-Constable at Gormlee, in the parish of
Danbollog, where they demanded arms, and took bridles, saddles, and hourses
from him and several other Farmers in the neighbourhood, to whom they also
tendered an illegal oath. It has been escertained [sic] that the party at
first consisted of about nineteen or twenty men, who had come down the Old
Mallow Road, and at Whitechurch were joined by another body, and at the
Cross of Killeagh by several more, whence they proceeded direct to
Glenville. on their return they called at a public-house, and drank
twenty-three glasses of spirits and a quantity of porter, for which they
paid. They did not appear at all inclined to disguise, but on the contrary,
displayed their persons and avowed their objects in the most daring manner.
A reward of 50l has been offered by Justin MACARTY, Esq. of Carrignavar, for
the discovery of any of the party.
CASTLEBAR, jan. 6-We notice, with considerable regret, the perpetration of a
most flagitious outrage, involving an extensive destruction of property, at
the Heath, in this County, on the night between the 2d and 3d instant, when
some incendiaries set fire to the haggard and out-offices of Mr. FAIR. The
consequence was, that ninteen large sacks of oats, the property of his son,
Mr. R. FAIR, Fortville, and two ricks of hay, consisting upwards of fifty
tons, belonging to himself, were consumed to ashed as were also a barn and
potato-house, in which there were about 20 barrels of potatoes and 20 sacks
of oats. In the morning a notice was discovered, precisely in the words and
letters following; nailed to Mr. FAIR's hall door:
"Unless you leave this county, you will soon have a courps comeing to your
door, believe me as a friend. Signed by General ROCK's command,
"Burnin to-night, murder nex week.
Robert FAIR, of the Heath, as yet."
Jan. 11-This day, Mr. Sergeant TORRENS proceeded to hold a Sessions under
the Insurrection Act at Rathkeale where eight men are on trial. The Learned
Sergeant is to adjourn the Sessions to the 19th of February next, and will
proceed for Dublin on Monday.
At the early hour of six o'clock on Wednesday evening, Joseph CONDON,
returning to his house at Fedamore, was waylaid on the Ballveedy road,
within two miles of this City, by a gang of fellows, who beat him so cruelly
that he died a few hours after. he has left a wife and four helpless
orphans. The deceased was a peaceable, honest man, and an under-steward on
Earl Egremont's property in this County.
The following signed John ROCK, was posted at Kildimo, in this County, on

he is in a state of tranquillity, if you don't, the consequences will be
On Wednesday last, a gang of fellows entered the house of Mr. Henry COLLIS,
North Strand, and stole several article of wearing apparel. They got in by
cutting a pane in the window.
Mr. OWEN, of Lannark, the celebrated Philanthropist, arrived yesterday in
this city, on a tour to ascertain the means to be adopted for he
melioration of the of the Irish Peasantry.
A few nights ago, two guns were taken out of the house of William LONG, of
Ballinakill, near Adare, by a party of ruffians, who broke into the house so
instantaneously, that he was unable to make any resistance. The fellows were
all armed and vowed vengeance to the inmates, if they gave information of

Constables, from Hospital, pursued a party of ruffians who had seized a
young woman, and were taking her off, in order to force her to marry one of
their associates. He recovered the girl, and secured two of the party, the
rest having fled on his approach.
A few nights ago five sheep were killed near Fedamore, the property of a

The house of Mr. BAILEY, a respectable farmer, in the same neighbourhoood,
was attacked on Friday evening, at five o'clock, by a well-armed party of
about sixteen men. Nine of them entered the house, broke the locks of every
box, searching for money and ammunition. They succeeded in taking with them
one gun and a sword.
The take of herrings for the last week has been very great indeed. Herrings
sold to-day at 12s per thousand, and were purchased a few days ago at 6s per
ditto. The take along the coast is greater than can well be imagined; but
this superabundance is of very little value to the poor people of Arran and
Connemara, as they have no salt or purchasers, so that this valuable fish
becomes putrid in a short time. We had a comparatively poor supply in town
to-day, in consequence of the light easterly winds which prevented the boats
from coming in. If any plan could be devised for supplying these poor people
with salt, it would tend much to the amelioration of their condition.

the road from Curragh to Kildare. They took away every thing they could

banks of the Suir, about three miles at this side of Carrick, of twenty-five
guineas-the house of a poor woman at the gate of Mount Bo**on, of
twenty-five, tenpennies and a roll of tobacco-and a neighbouring house
(where no money was found) of some clothes. On Sunday last, a man named John
HARTRY; upwards of seventy years old, was murdered in teh parish of Ardmore,
County Waterford, by a neighbour of his named CROWLEY, within tow or three
fields of his own residence-Jealousy is the motive assigned for the horrible
act. A snug slated house and offices, belonging to a respectable farmer,

nights back. --Waterford Chronicle.

To The Editor of the Connaught Journal
Sir. --From your Publications I learn that the Inhabitants of your Loyal
Town have at length given serious attention to the extortions practised in
the Collection of the Tolls and Customs. Probably this ought to have been
done earlier, though I must own that the Country Gentlemen deserve more
blame, as their Tenants, nay, themselves ultimately will be sufferers as
long as illegal exactions are allowed to exist at your Markets; but the
delay may still be for the better, as upon better prospects than could be
hitherto -it is now expected that Government, ere long, will be made
acquainted with the grievances which the Town of Galway laboured under for
several years back; and it will not be difficult to discover, that
independent of all claims from justice and humanity, the Relief of the Poor
is called for by necessity-Corporaters , no doubt, will give any measure of
this nature, every opposition in defence of their own profits; but the
Government well knows that the most loyal part of the Community have no
communication with Corporations; and it can no longer be denied it is an
insult upon the character of the Patriotic and industrious, that those
pensioned out of their properties, should be considered more attahced to the
King and Constitution than their supporters.
The general opinion here is that the Corporate Charters will be revised next
Session of Parliament. Of course, the public will, to their great
satisfaction, soon hear that some Corporations deserve to be dissolved by
forfeiture of Charter, either through negligence or abuse of their
Franchises, and have broken the conditions on which they were incorporated.
And further, that measure will be taken to make it the interest and duty of
Irish Magistrates to discourage and restrain the spirit of party business;
for, this had hitherto, enfeebled and distracted the Irish Councils-it had
agitated the Community with ill founded jealousies andfalse alarms, kindled
the animosity of one party against the other, and, occasionally fomented
riots and insurrections.
Mr. Editor, you have discharged your duty in exposing the conduct of the
Collectors of Tolls on Goods carried by land to your Markets. I now wish to
turn your attention to the sea side, in hopes that you may take a view of
the practices at the Kelp Crane, and let the public know why the large giant
is still put into one of the scales, where he displays on bent knee, as much
science as ever the Human Gladiator Rutaba had exhibited. On this I shall
say no more at present, least I should give offence, than that the Arran and
Connemara Tenants are too poor to be able to sustain the shock given to
their little industry, by the Quay reductions and allowances. The Peasantry
of this Country should at present, be treated with a little more kindness;
for they are wretched beyond description. This can easily be accouned for --
Rack-rents, Tithes, and Corporation demands, with other causes, have utterly
destroyed them. Though shameful, it is true, that no reduction in rents has
been made in this Country as yet, exception one Barony and you may hear of
Warrants for the purpose of establishing Political Societies; but you can
never hear of any exertions, either Commercial or Agricultural, for the
purpose of calling forth the activity and native energies of our neglected
and mismanaged Peasants,though on the present occasion, the proper
employment of a faithful subject must be to show a willingness to remove the
cause of discontent, and to restore the harmony and comfort to a Country
reduced to a state of bankruptcy, by the intrigues of the Factions. This
cannot be effected, as long as those measures are pursued, which had
hitherto only produced divisions. I have the honor to be, Sir, your very
humble and obedient Servant, C.R., Ougherard, January 17, 1823

On Thursday night last, two houses and a large quantity of hay and oats, the
produce of forty acres, belonging to Edmond and Patrick MERRANE, were burned
on the lands of Garryeerra, Barony of Bunratty, County Clare, part of the
estate of Lord George QUIN. The fire, it was supposed, was malicious.
Scarcely a night passes that fellows are not ambulating in roads in the
neighbourhood of Edwardstown, in this County, and breaking into the houses
of peaceable inhabitants who will not conform to their illegal regulations.
On Friday evening an armed party of ruffians entered the house of Mr.
FITZGERALD at Cannigh, Co. Kerry, and after beating the family robbed the
house of fire arms and a considerable sum of money; Mr. F. having alarmed
his neighbours, a pursuit was set up after the fellows who made a desperate
resistance, but Mr. F and his friends succeeded in taking two of them, who
are from County Wexford; the gang had arrangements for attacking several

The Lieutenant Generalship of the Ordnance having been vacant upwards of
four months (by the decease of Lieutenant-General Sir Hildebrand OAKES) it
is now supposed will be filled up as the Duke of Wellington has returned to
his official duties as Master-General of that Department. it is now known
that any officer is yet selected for the vacancy. The patent salary and
emouluments are considered to be worth 2000l. per annum.
Major-General Sir Edward BARNES, K.C.B. arrived in London on Monday from
India, and being re-appointed Governor of Ceylon, will leave England on his
return in about three months. Lieut.-General the Hon. Sir Edward PAGET,
G.C.B. relived [sic] Sir Edward BARNES, as Governor of Ceylon; but being
appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Forces in India, he left Ceylon in the
early part of last year. It is supposed Sir Edward BARNES will go out with
the local rank of Lieutenant-General as the second appointment of Sir Edward
PAGET has given him the local rank of General.

A horrible and dreadful Plot to Murder the Protestants, discovered and
We understand that our worth Mayor and Sheriffs have been most undefatigably
employed for some days back, in solemn and serious investigation, in order
to discover the Members of an execrable Association, combined for the
diabolical purpose of assassinating a certain number of Protestants whose
name had been inserted on a proscribed list, which was purloined from the
Conspirators in the midst of their deliberations. We have not heard, as yet,
what success has attended the praise-worthy exertions of our Civil
Authorities on discovering the monsters engaged in this internal Conspiracy;
for we are not informed of any recent arrests having taken place in
consequence of the information received, though this is probably owing to
the secrecy in which such villainous attempts are always enveloped, and the
intimidation which hangs about their disclosure. The following are the only
particulars of this transaction which has reached us ;-
A Servant-maid of a Mr. SPEARING, in Bowling Green-street, stated, that she
was called on, one night last week, by a Mrs. MAHONY, who took her to a
house here she saw a number of men sitting round a table, and at the head of
which was a man dressed in a large bost cloak, with brass clasps; that after
some time al lthe men, at once, got drunk, and all the lights suddenly
became extinguished; that she (the servant girl) then took from the table a
paper on which a bloody hand was impressed, and on which was also inscribed
a long list of the names of Protestants to be murdered, at the head of which
was the name of Mr. S____; that she afterwards gave the paper to a Mr.
SEALY, brother to a Rev. Edmd. SEALY, (but no such Reverend Gentleman can be
found) who transmitted it to the Castle of Dublin-that the Conspirators,
missing the paper the next day, sent a letter to her Master, threatening to
cut him to pieces if the paper ws not returned or if the secret was
Such is the information, we understand, on which the Civic Authorities of
our City have been deliberating for some days back, and have been
endeavouring to reach the Dramatic Persons in this terrific tragedy. As yet,
we lament to find, their labours have proved unsuccessful, and what is
worse, that the informan herself has suddenly decamped, and cannot be found.
But for, our parts , we entrait and enjoin all his Majesty's Liege Subjects,
wh may know any thing of the Plot, or any circumstance connected with it, or
the Conspirators, to come forward, and give immediately all the information
in their power to the Authorities of the City, to enable them to come at the
guilty Conspirators, so that they shall meet the punishment due to their

gave judgment that the conviction shoud be set aside.--Ibid.

A JEWESS IN CHANCERY
It is rumoured that the daughter of Philip SAMUEL, Esq., and grand-daughter
of the late Asher GOLDSMITH, Esq., has been recently made a ward of
Chancery, and that this rich little heiress is consequently under the
protection of the Lord Chancellor. This is, at least, a novel proceeding
among the Jews, as there are not so many opportunities of effecting
clandestine marriages among that people as among Christians.
Berlin, Jan 4-Two Irishmen, John Nugent IRVING and William HOLLAND, who were
arrested here in November, have sold, since the beginning of 1819, a vast
number of Bills of Exchange, forged by themselves, on numerous journeys
which they made, chiefly under false names, from Paris, thro' France,
Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Poland, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark,
Holland, Spain and other countries; a great part of these Bills has already
been sent by the persons deceived by them to the Criminal Court in this
City, which is charged with the investigation of the affair. A third
Irishman, in particular, who accompanied the Prisoners for several years, is
said to have cheated, by false Bills of Exchange, many houses, Geneva, Rome,
Lucerne, Zurich, St. Gallen, Belzano, Aix-la-Chapelle, Brussels, Valencia,
Vittoria, St. Petersburgh, Stockholm, Leghorn, Milan, and Laybach. (Some of
these cases are specified in the public notices issued by the Criminal
Court.) The two Prisoners had with them, when arrested, 6000 dollars, which
are to be divided among their creditors.

INDEPENDENCE OF LIMERICK
[From the Telegraph]
During the last Quarter Sessions we find that a considerable accession of
votes were added to the already victorious phalanx of independence. Upwards
of one hundred new Freeholders have been registered for our matchless RICE;
but O! miserere mihi, only seven, aye, "seven" for the bludgeoneers, alias
the Corporation, six of which were re-registeries! Though this took place
under the very nose of the Corporation Chronicle, yet, the public at large
would never have been apprised of the heard-gladdening fact were it not for
the dear little Telegraph.
In addition to the above cheering intelligence, we have to communicate news
of even a more consolatory description, inasmuch as it strikes at the very
root of Corporate delinquency.-Mr. RICE and the Committee, during the
present week, have been exclusively occupied in preparing an Emancipation
Bill of the inhabitants of the City. This Bill will have a three-fold
object; first, the restoration of the people to those privileges to which
they are entitled by their several Charters, and of which they were
despoiled by that body of Usurpers, who style themselves the Corporation of
Limerick; second, to clear the Augean Stable of the present mass of
corruption which taints and demoralizes the City; and, thirdly, to bring
public plunderers to public justice, in order the make them disgorge the
property of the oppressed citizens.-This necessary and important Bill will
be among the first introductions in the presence of Parliament. Ninety
thousand people groaning under the intolerable yoke of an abominable and
illegal Faction, will certainly claim considerable and early attention from
the wisdom and impartiality of the Imperial Legislature. Our brave and
worthy Representative will be at his post. We need not fear the result.
CLAIMANTS FOR FREEDOM
Our worthy Chief Magistrate, D.F.G. MAHONY, Esq. aided by Sir C. MARRETT and
Alderman WESTROPP, were occupied at the Council Chambers for several hours
on last Saturday, investigating the cases of the following Claimants for
John BOYSE, jun; Andrew VOKES; L. BERNERD; Hugh FENNESSY; John TROUSDELL;
James Joseph FISHER; Henry WOODBURN; John HILL; Patrick MOLONEY; Stephen
ROCHE; John SARGENT, and Thomas WILLIAMSON.
CONSECRATION OF THE BISHOP OF LIMERICK
(From the Clonmel Advertiser)
The consecration of Dr. JEBB, as Bishop of Limerick, took place at the
Cathedral of Cashel, on Sunday last, 12th instant. The following particulars
of that interesting ceremony have been furnished us for publication:-
The usual church service was performed, except that instead of the ordinary
Epistle and Gospel, the 3d chapter of the first Epistle to Timothy was read
at the Communion table. Next followed the Sermon, which was preached by Dr.
C.W. EIRINGTON, F.T.C.D., wh came down especially to preach the Consecration
Sermon; his Text was taken from the 20th and 21st verses of the 2d chapter
of Ephesians-"And are built upon the foundation of the Apostles and
Prophets. Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the
building, fitly framed together, groweth into an Holy Temple in the Lord."
The Learned Preacher took occasion, from his Text, to defend the Ecclastical
Government of the Church, not only on the gound of its Apostolic formand
descent, but also on its expediency....

Dungarvan, has been transmitted to Waterford from Cork, and was lodged in

HALTON, the Hibernian, who has come to London for the purpose of having some
turns-about with the light weights, and who had challenged any man of his
own weight, was matched on Tuesday evening, at the Cock Tavern, Haymarket,
against Abraham BELASCO. His backer is a Captain in the Army, from the
Sister Kingdom, and as HALTON could not find a customer of his own weight he
will fight up hill in this match. Six sovereigns are deposited, and the
fight to take place on Tuesday, the 4th of March, in a twenty-four-feet
ring. HALTON is a pupil of DONNELLY, stands five feet eleven inches and
upwards, and is a snake-headed one.-The fight on Tuesday next, between
Bristol Cabbage and COOPER, the scientific Gypsey, is looked up to as an out
and out thing. COOPER is rather the favourite.-Ned TURNER and Cy DAVIS are
in close training, and in high condition for their match on the 21st of
Herrings are selling in Tralee at eight for a penny-on the sea coast at
tenpence a hundred.
