We are authorised to state, that Major General Sir Colin HALKETT, K.C.B.,
has not relinquished the Lieutenant-Governorship of Jersey. The
Major-General is only returning to England on leave of absence.
It is understood that Lieutenant-General Sir T. MAITLAND, G.C.B. will return
shortly from England to the Ioman Islands, to resume the command of the
Forces in the Mediterranean.
The 1st Division of the 10th Regiment of Foot embarked on the 22d instant,
on board the Caro and Zephyr transports at Sheerness for Ireland.
Five Troops of the 9th Lancers are ordered to embark, on the 28th and 29th
inst., at Bristol and Bideford, for Ireland.
On the arrival of the 58th, now on its march to Weedon, the 65th Foot will
proceed from that station to Hull, for the purpose of relieving the 73d
Regiment, which is ordered for Scotland.
The 77th will arrive in three Divisions, on the 2d, 3d, and 4th June, at
Portpatrick, on its route to Ireland.
On the arrival of the 1st Division of the 10th in Ireland, a Detachment of
the 52d will proceed from Cork to Newfoundland, to relieve three Companies
of the 74th, which are ordered for Halifax.
In consequence of the disturbed state of Ireland, the 77th, stationed in
Edinburgh Castle, received a sudden route yesterday, (21st inst.) and this
morning marched for that Country. The 77th are to be replaced in the Castle
by the 73d, from Hul and Carlisle. ----Caledonian Mercury.
The 7th Dragoon Guards stationed at Glasgow, have received a route for
Ireland. The detachment of the Scots Greys, stationed at Perth, have
received orders to march to Glasgow, to replace the 7th.
It is with much regret that we part with the troops composing the present
garrison. Since the 7th D.G. and the 77th arrived in this city, we are not
aware of any one offence having been committed by any individual of either
corps, while their general civility made them extremely acceptable to the
FAIR OF THE GREEN
The fair of the Green, on Saturday last, held out better prospects to the
farmers than usual in those bad times. There was a great show of cattle, the
demand was brisk, the purchasers numerous, and the prices very good- in
fact, everything that was worth purchasing was bought up. So much for our
HEALTH OF THE TOWN
The health of the town is now perfectly established; and bathers are
beginning to come in from the country. His Grace of Tuam and family are
expected in a few days- so are many other families of distinction. It is
thought that the town will be remarkably gay during the summer months.
Proposals have been sent in for the Theatre already; and it is thought that
Mr. SEYMOUR and company will perform there.

STATE OF THE COUNTRY
CO. DUBLIN- On Thursday night, the House of a man named DONLON, situate at
Tallagh-hill, was set on fire by some persons, and consumed to the ground;
fortunately no lives were lost.
Yesterday, Andrew, James and William KILBRIDE, were committed to Kilmainham
from the Head Office of Police, to abide their trial at the ensuing
Commission, on a charge of having feloniously attacked the dwelling-house of
John M'KEON, farmer, at the Hill of Sargard, on the morning of the 26th
instant, and with having violently assaulted him and his wife.
James KILBRIDE was also committed on a charge of having feloniously violated
the person of Hannah M'KEON, the wife of John M'KEON, and Andrew KILBRIDE,
on a charge of having aided and abetted James KILBRIDE in violating the
person of Hannah M'KEON.
CO. WESTMEATH- Some outrages have been committed in this County. Threatening
notices have been served, and cattle maimed- some Tenants obliged to quit
their farms, and a mill burnt to the ground near Balrath.
CO. TIPPERARY- Three houses, all in the Barony of Middlethird, have been
attacked in the course of the last week, and plundered of arms- and several
Sub-tenants sworn not to give more than one pound per acre for land. The
Sessions under the Insurrection Act, was held at Nenagh, in this County, on
Wednesday last, fifty-two persons were arraigned, and two convicted. This is
very extraordinary, and shows, to say the least of it, that the Magistrates
acted in a very inconsiderate manner, to incarcerate to many persons,
without having good grounds for their proceeding. We shall not be much
surprised if we should learn that the disturbances in this County have
CO. CLARE- Two houses were pulled down in the Parish of Kilmalry, as it
should seem, by the ejected Tenants, and one house burnt at Ballemacally, in
the course of last week.
CO. CORK- Three houses, one of them described as a substantial farm house,
have been burnt since our last accounts from the Country.

THE FAIR SEX
The charming prattle of the fair sex has certainly been specially granted
them by nature, as a relief to their confinement, and sedentary occupations.
It is unjust, therefore, and cruel, to censure their propensity to chat. A
learned and ingenious friar, once preaching to a convent of nuns, on Easter
day, assured them, that our Saviour, when he arose, appeared first to a
woman, that the news of the resurrection might be sooner spread abroad.
It has been thought expedient to place upon the levey book a good round sum
for the erection of two Galleries in the Church of St. Nicholas. One Gallery
is finished, at least the heavy work has been gone through, and has cost the
inhabitants of this miserable place some- (we do not know how many)
hundreds. The other Gallery will, we hear, be as expensive, if not more so-
and will be erected in the identical spot in which the former Gallery stood,
which was taken down a few years back.- Thus it was with us in Galway. We
have, as the proverb says, "a time to gather and a time to scatter- a time
to build up and a time to pull down." If a Gallery was considered at all
necessary in this beautiful building why was the old one taken down? It
certainly was not removed through any apprehension of its falling, for the
work and materials were found to be excellent; no- this was not the reason
of its disappearing, but the Parish saw, that instead of its being at all
useful or necessary, it was calculated for very bad purposes, being nothing
less than a perfect nuisance, and a lurking place for abomination of every
description- a mere profanation of the House of God. In this assertion we
are borne out by every person with whom we have communicated; and, while all
see that it is an unnecessary expence to the Parish, none have had the
firmness to come forward and oppose the impost.- Our astonishment at this is
very great; but we must confess that it is wonderfully increased at hearing
that it is intended to remove, or take down, the handsomest ornament in the
Church, for the purpose of making way for this Gallery- We here allude to
Lynch's Altar. The new Gallery cannot be built so as to avoid disturbing
this venerable remnant of antiquity, as the old one was, but Lynchs' Altar,
the finest specimen of mechanism in the entire building, Lynch's Altar,
which has stood the test of so many centuries, and even commanded the
protection of a Gothic infuriated Soldiery in the general destruction of
Church property and ornaments, must be now set aside, removed or taken down;
and by whom? by men who ought to be enlightened- who pretend to taste and
judgment, but who do not seem possessed of any strong claims on either. The
large tomb will be (we hear) also removed. We shall merely ask- Will the
descendants of the LYNCH family suffer this to pass without an observation?
TO THE EDITOR OF THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
SIR- I beg through the medium of your valuable print to direct the public
attention to the wretched state of those poor creatures that are sent to the
Fever Hospital. You are aware that in consequence of the rapid decrease of
Typhus in this Town, or, rather (thank God) its total absence at present,
the porters employed to convey patients to the Hospital have been dismissed;
of course, those unfortunate person that may be yet attacked, will not be
taken out without paying those porters themselves; - they are charged 1s 8d
and we know that many of them would expire from want and sickness before
they could make up even this trifling sum. I speak of what has come under my
own view. Yesterday a poor woman was taken ill of the Fever; she was ordered
to pay the porters, she would not be moved from the bed of sickness but for
the humanity of a few individuals who paid for conveying her thither.
The cases at present are few. The Town has seldom been so free from Fever;
but even a few, when they have not the means of immediate or timely
conveyance, might spread the disorder again amongst us. During the
prevalence of the typhus last year, the porters were paid, I believe,
half-a-guinea a week out of the Funds of the Hospital. Now, as Providence
has put an end to their weekly employment, they should still be paid, if
possible, a reasonable sum out of the same Funds for each person they may
carry in. There is a Chair belonging to the Establishment; and I should
think 10d for each person conveyed thither by them would be a very ample
Your very obedient servant.

On Friday morning, about the hour of 1 o'clock, the cabin of a man named
DOOLAN, situate at Tallagh-hill, was burned to the ground. DOOLAN was awoke
by the screams of the children, when he discovered that the end of the cabin
was in flames. Thee were in the cabin at the time, DOOLAN, his wife, four
children, his mother-in-law, Mary DOWD and her son, John DOWD.
On Friday night between the hours of 11 and 12 o'clock, a man named Patrick
HEALY, who resides at Ballymeane, near Tallagh, was alarmed by disovering
that his house was on fire. On going out he found that the back part of the
thatch was in flames; he immediately gave the alarm, and several of his
neighbours came to his assistance, but a party of men who kept themselves
concealed, fired several shots at them, and deterred them from extinguishing
the fire, until the house was entirely consumed. HEALY states that he would
not know any of them. His family, consisting of his wife, his three sons,
and himself, were in the house at the time it commenced.
HEALY's house had been attacked by a party of men on the preceding Friday
night, between the hours of ten and eleven o'clock. This gang consisted of
a great number; they were armed with guns and other weapons; they broke into
the house on this occasion, and assaulted HEALY violently,beating him about
the head with guns and sticks, telling him to give up DIVINE's land, or they
would give him STAUNTON's death.
CASTLEBAR, June 5- On Thursday last, at the fair of Tunershowins,
Killala, the Police were attacked by a mob of about five hundred persons,
for the purpose of rescuing a man who was in their custody for an assault.
They were obliged to fire in their defence, and the consequence was, that
one of the assailants was killed on the spot, and another so severely
wounded as to render his recovery altogether hopeless. An investigation of
the riot at the fair took place, we understand, before J. KNOX, of
Castlerea, on Friday, and on the night of that day, two of Mr. KNOX's cows
were houghed. These transactions, succeeding others of a most disagreeable
nature, tend to fasten a character of insubordination on the people of that
neighbourhood. We understand that a meeting of the Magistrates of the barony
of Tyrawly was called for this day, to consider of the best means of
discovering the perpetrators of the late outrages.
On the 28th ult, at Nenagh, seven men, two of them above the lower order,
were tried under the Insurrection Act, and acquitted. There is nothing new
from this County.
Some outrages, of very nearly the same character as those so often
mentioned, have occurred in this County since our last. A man was killed at
the fair of Glenagara, by a Policeman. He had been quarrelling with another,
when the Constable interfered and stabbed him. On Sunday, a party of the
Whiteboys attacked the house of a baliff of Lord Clare's, beat his son, and
threatened to murder the father, if he did not surrender the lands he held
under his Lordship.
We rejoice to state that we have nothing new in this County. The parties
which committed the outrages in the neighbourhood of Glanmire, are stated to
be strangers, and entered the houses without disguise. At Alderman HARDING's
they swore the Steward as to whether any fire-arms were in the house and
then added that as they understood Mr. HARDING to be a kind, good gentelman
to his tenantry and neighbours, they would not, in any manner, injure his
house or property. At Mr. DALY's they took his tithe papers, but, after
going some distance from the house, one of the fellows came back, and
returned them uninjured. The party is thought to have amounted to 30 men.
The leader was called Captain, and he, in return, addressed his first and
second Lieutenant in a high tone and in good English.
James KILBRIDE has been commited on a charge of having feloniously violated
the person of Hannah M'KEON, the wife of John M'KEON; and Andrew KILBRIDE,
on a charge of having aided and abetted James KILBRIDE, in violating the
person of Hannah M'KEON.
On Tuesday evening, John M'KEON arrived at the Head Office of police, ona a
car, in a weak, exhausted state, and in consequence of some information
which he then gave, Peace Officer FLANNAGAN, with a part of the Horse
Police, was immediately sent out to the neighbourhood of Saggard, where they
took into custody the above two persons (who are brothers) and lodged them
in the Head Office of Police.
John M'KEON was in such a weak state from the ill treatment which he had
received, that it was found necessary to have him conveyed to Mercer's
The following are the alleged facts of the case:
On Monday morning, shortly after day-break, a number of men came to the
house of Edward M'KEON, which is situated about a quarter of a mile from
John M'KEON's on the hill of Saggard, whilst he (Edward M'KEON) was in bed.
They threatened to set fire to the house if he did not open the door; he got
out of bed, and having no means of protecting himself, he opened the door,
when several entered, they forced him to dress himself, and conducted him to
the house of a man named Andrew DEVITT, having first tied a handkerchief
over his eyes. They made him then call out for Andrew DEVITT, and on
DEVITT's asking who was there, they desired him to reply, "Ned MACKEON; "
and on the door being opened, they took out an old woman named Bridget
M'KEON and having tied a blanket round Edward M'KEON's waist, they put
Bridget M'KEON into it, and ordered him to carry her to his brother's house.
On arriving at John M'KEON's, they compelled him to call out to let in his
mother, Bridget. She has previously gone to DEVITT's house to procure a sum
of money, which she had deposited in the hands of Ellen DEVITT, the motehr
of Andrew DEVITT. on hearing Edward M'KEON's voice, John M'KEON opened the
door and instantly several persons rushed into the house and struck John
M'KEON with fire-arms and sticks, and knocked him down; they then beat and
abused him in a most cruel manner. M'KEON, disabled from the beating, lay
down on the bed, on which his wife lay with two infants, when James
KILBRIDE, after a struggle with her for a considerable time, in the presence
of M'KEON, who was unable to assist her, succeeded in effecting his
diabolical purpose. The party were armed with guns, blunderbusses, and
pistols, and were so numerous that they filled the house and barn. He can
assign no reason for htis outrage, except that he prosecuted a man named
QUIN, for having killed a M'KEON cow.
Hannah M'KEON attended the Head Office, and identified James KILBRIDE, as
the person who forcibly violated her; she also stated that Wm. KILBRIDE was
present, and that a man whom she did not know, held her whilst James
KILBRIDE committed the crime. She had an infant at her breast in the Police
Office; she appears to be about 32 years of age, and is a well-looking
>From information givn by the unfortunate M'KEON, Peace-Officer FLANAGAN and
a party immediately proceeded in search of a man named Patrick KEALY, and
traced him to Black Ditchery, six miles beyond Blessington; having procured
assistance from Major TANDY's Police, they succeeded in taking him into
custody, and brought him to Dublin. He has been fully identified by M'KEON
as one of the participants in the outrage, and committed along with the
KILBRIDEs for tiral at the Commission.

respectable acquaintance, Mrs. HANLY, wife of Patrick HANLY, Esq., Attorney.

DEATH OF JUDGE FLETCHER
This venerable and distinguished character has paid the debt of nature- he
expired yesterday morning at his seat, Montrose, in this county, as full of
years as honours- he had attained the age of 73. In early life he had
qualified himself for the medical profession, but having displayed much
declamatory talent at various public meetings, and applied himself with
peculiar assid???y to the study of the law- how well he succeeded need not
be said here, for the profundity of his research, the vigour of his mind and
memory, and the stern integrity of his legal constructions and inferences
have established the incontroversible fact.
In his Parliamentary career in the Irish House of Commons, he was
distinguished. There, too, he was to be found at his country's call. The
elequent narrator of her or her sufferings and privations, and the ?????? of
her just cliams to the sympathy and justice of the Governors. His
magnanimity and talents attracted the notice of his Grace the Duke of
Bedford, while exercising hte Viceregal power in this country, who, on the
warm recommendation of he immortal H. GRATTAN, appointed Counsellor William
FLETCHER to his judicial situation. As a Judge, his memory will be long
venerated. Inflexible in the maintenance of the Laws of the Land, and the
dignity of her Judges, he was far beyond prejudice, as he soared above
partiality. For the last two years his health declined rapidly, and a
general debility terminated a truly amiable life. He has left one son to
imitate his virtues and deplore his irrepable loss.
Serjeants TORRENS and LEFROY are both spoken of as likely to be appointed to
the seat vacant on the Judicial Bench in the Common Pleas by teh death of
Mr. Justice FLETCHER. Dr. RADCLIFFE is also spoken of as likely to be
included in the changes consequent on the demise of Judge FLETCHER.
The Grand Division of the 12th Lancers arrived here on Tuesday last, from
Ballinrobe, on their way to Limerick. They are as fine a Body of Men as any

CREAGHAN, we are informed, has absconded.

June 4- Thursday night, an armed party attacked the house of Richard CROFTS,
Esq. (father of the Sheriff elect of the city of Cork), situate near
Ballybeg Glyn, and on the high mail-coach road between Mallow and Buttevant.
Mr. CROFTS not having any arms, was obliged to admit them, on their
demanding 10l, which he refused to give, alleging that he had it not- one of
the ruffians fired at him- the shot took effect- and we deeply regret to
learn that he was considered in imminent danger at the time the messenger
left him. He was a most respectable gentleman, of mild and amiable manners,
and we have heard, remarkably popular among the lower class.
Mr. James BENNETT, Coroner, held an inquest on the body of John HEALY, who
was killed at the fair of Glenogra, and the verdict of a very respectable
Jury was, "The the said John HEALY came by his death from a stab of a
bayonet he received from a Policeman in his breast, in the execution of his
duty, and in his own defence."
On Wednesday, rather an interesting looking woman was observed standing on
the verge of the quay, opposite where the brig Fortitude, freighted with
passengers for America, was lying; when, on hearing a shot fired, she
thought it was the signal for sailing, on which she plunged into the river
witha view of reaching the vessel, or abiding the consequences. She was
fortunately taken up, and on being recovered, she said in explanation, that
her husband was on board the vessel, having deserted her and her family.
There was an order immediately for his being re-landed. In furture he should
atone for having taken a step that was near ending so fatal to a wife that
loved him better than he deserved.

revenge. Mr. RONALDSON, steward to Lord Clanmorris, having been in search of
stolen timber, discovered some which was not satisfactorily accounted for by
those in whose possession it was, and which he brought away. In the night of
the day on which this occurence took place, two heifers the property of Mr.
RONALDSON, which were grazing in his Lordship's demesne of Newbrook, were
fired at. One of them was found dead in the morning and the other dying,
both having received bullet wounds.

June 5- On Tuesday night, a dairy-house on the land of Killura, in the
parish of Anakissy, the property of Mr. LINEHAN, and inhabited by a man of
the same name, was set on fire in three places by some unfortunate and
deluded followers of Capt. Rock. The fire was not perceived until part of
the house had fallen in, and the inhabitants, who were in bed for some time,
with difficulty escaped the flames. The military from Castletown were
patrolling in the same direction and arrived in a few moments after, too
late, however, to render any effectual service in saving the property. The
loss in cream, milk, furniture and potatoes cannot be less than 50l. It is a
new feature in the depravity of the system manifested in this outrage, that
no previous notice has been served upon the dairyman, who was in possession
about one year and a half.

The Regiments of Infantry now forming the garrison of Dublin are instructing
in several new modifications of the old field manoeuvres of Donda's system,
by Sir Henry TORRENS, to whose talents and military zeal the Army will be
indebted for those improvements. The 2d, or Queen's quarter at Richmond
Barracks, has made considerable proficiency already, as the Regiment is
immediately under the personal inspections of the gallant officer alluded
to. The mode of forming three deep, and four deep, is much improved- and the
reductions in the front of a column, moving upon a given flank- is performed
upon a more accurate principle and with more practical facility than
according to Dundas. According to the old plan, the left partition, whether
consisting of one section or more, moved to the rear of the right- by which
the means the prescribed line for the flank of the column to move upon, was
lost. According to the improved plan, the right of the leading division of
the column, obliques to the front of the left, which is still a movement in
advance, and still remains the flank upon which the column was moving. There
are other improvements in the mode of forming squares, and making movements
towards a flank, which are highly commended, and which have been sanctioned
by the highest authority.

ORANGE AFFRAY AT MAGHERA, COUNTY LONDONDERRY
We have this day to lay before the public, and account of one of these
horrible scenes of blood, which are of periodical recurrence in this
On the fair day of Maghera, in the county of Londonderry (we believe it was
a Saturday) some of the Orange Yeomanry of that district quarrelled with the
people at the fair; it has not been stated to us which party was in fault.
The Yeoman being fewere in number than their assailants, retreated to the
barrack in the town, where some regular troops were quartered. The
Commanding Officer refused to admit the Yeomen into the barrack, but had the
men called out to afford them protection. The crowd in the mean time pressed
forward, and assailed the Military as well as the Yeomen with a valley of
stones, which hurt some of the soldiers, and the Commanding Officer himself
was struck, it is stated- he, however, prevented the men from firing, until
every effort proved unavailing. At length, the Yeomanry having been
furnished with fire-arms from the barrack, the orders to "fire" were given,
when several vollies were fired among the crowd. The carnage and confusion
that ensued need not be described. The crowd having taken to flight, were
followed by the Yeomen, and Military, and some of the houes entered and
sacked in the pursuit. The numbers killed & wounded are variously stated-
from 8 to 12 are said to have been killed, and from 40 to 50 wounded. The
streets were covered with blood.
This shocking affair is not a matter upon which we are disposed to make any
comment until we shall have full and authentic particulars.
The foregoing is the substance of several private letters which we have
seen. One other letter differs as to an important fact. In that letter it is
stated that the Yeomanry, followed by the crowd, actually entered the
barrack by force, and supplied themselves with arms, and a quantity of ball
cartridges, belonging to the soldiers.
We lament to say that the letters were received in town yesterday, written
by respectable persons, stating that on Thursday last, the 12th instant, a
violent affray took place at the fair of Maghera, in the county of Derry,
between a numerous body of Orangemen and their opponents, whom these letters
describe as Ribbonmen; that it continued for more than two hours, when the
latter were driven out of the town, leaving behind them eight shot dead, and
sixteen wounded. Another letters says thirty wounded. We have not heard that
any of the Orangemen were injured. This circumstance is to be attributed to
their opponents not having firearms. It is added, that after this melancholy
event, the Orangemen paraded the town and broke the windows of several of
the Catholic inhabitants. We cannot vouch for the correctness of this
melancholy detail in all its particulars, but we have reason to fear it is
substantially true. We would willingly indulge the hope that it is at least

CO. KILDARE- An express arrived in town yesterday, at two o'clock, stating
that the Cavalry Barracks at Newbridge were discovered to be on fire. It is

One Terence M'MANUS, in the South of Ireland, lately taken up for
sheep-stealing, wrote an account of same to his friend, in the following
words:- "As we wished to have some mutton to our turnips, we went to Squire
CARROLL, who had more sheep than his neibors; they were very wilde, and the
pasture very large, and we were obliged to take a new method to entice them
by force to come near us. As this method may be of some sarvice to you to
no, I think it my duty to tell you of it; Pat DUGGON and we wrapt ourselves
up in hay, and as the sheep came round to ate it, we cut their throats. But
a sarch being made, five hind quarters belonging to too of them, was found
in my cabin."
The consecration of the Rev. Dr. LAFFAN, as Roman Catholic Archbishop of
Cashel, will take place on the 6th July next at Thurles.
The vacancy in the Roman Catholic See of Cashel, in Ireland, has been at
length declared duly filled up by the nomination long since made by the
Clergy of the Diocess, in favor of the Rev. Doctor LAFFAN. A question was
raised at Rome as to the propriety of sanctioning the principle of Domestic
Nomination in theperson of the Rev. Gentleman. In the discussions upon that
point, the Rev. Dr. RYAN, who was sent out for the purpose, ably sustained
the right of the Clergy to exercise this power, as well as the fitness for
the sacred office of the Learned and Rev. Gentleman whom they elected. It is
said that the Hannoverian Minister at Rome exerted all his influence in
order to get Dr. COLLINS appointed to the See in question.

STATE OF THE COUNTRY
(From the Dublin Evening Mail)
We regret to state that the neighbourhood of Galway has, within a few days,
become the scene of outrage, and that threatening notices have been served
upon several of the Gentry residing within a short distance of the town. On
Sunday morning, Mr. MAUNSELL, of Shantalla, received a notice cautioning him
against demanding rents on the Barna estate, to which he is agent, and
threatening himself and family with destruction, should he presume, after
that intimation, to enforce the rents.
On Monday night, a large concourse of persons assembled in the streets of
Galway, under pretence of celebrating in the usual manner, by bonfires, &c.
the ever of St. John's Day. The Magistrates understanding that a riot was
expected, ordered the bonfires to be extinguished, the mob resisted, when it
was found expedient to call out the Military.- The crowd was at length
dispersed, but not until the ringleaders had been taken into custody. We
have not heard of any serious accident, though some trifling casualties
The above is copied from the Dublin Evening Mail of the 27th instant. We
trust it is unnecessary for us to say, after what has been already advanced,
that this Town and County [Galway] enjoy, at this moment, the most
uninterruped tranquillity. True, indeed, both have been represented at the
Castle as in a state of insurrection, by some vile incendiary, or
calculating miscreant, who wished to rise into place on the lifeloss bodies
of his fellow-men. But the united voice of the Magistrates and loyal people
gave a direct tie to one of the most ruffianly falsehoods that ever
disgraced the invention of man. But we beg of the reader to hear a curious-
most curious story! We heard a few days ago of the Shantalla affair; we
never noticed it, because we did not believe it, and, indeed, even the
assertion of the Dublin Evening Mail will scarcely remove our incredulity.
It is "passing strange" that no one can get a peep at the "threatening
notice" that was served on Mr. MAUNSELL's premises. Indeed, an underling in
the house found it in the garden. We ask any man of candour what would be
his conduct if placed in a mental situation, and knowing how to read and
write, if he discovered a threatening notice in his master's garden? We will
place him above a menial situation. We will suppose him to be a tutor in
this family, who found the notice. Surely his first step would be to shew it
to the heads of the family, and to give it into their possession. How
stands the matter in the present instance? The person who found the
threatening notice shewed it en passant merely to a boy of sixteen years of
age, and nobody else. The heads of the family could never get a view of it.
It was torn into a thousand pieces, and we dare be sworn, that if one
thousand pounds were offered for a single piece, it would not be
forthcoming. This is the modus in which things are managed here. It would be
idle for us to pay any attention to the connection which is sought to be
formed between the bonfires and the pretended outrage. Bonfires have blazed
in Galway time immemorial, and we dare predict will be lighted again,
without any mischievous concomitants.- The children of respectable persons
have danced round these fires, and some of the younger branches of our
respectable Port Collector's amiable family enjoyed the sport in a similar
manner; but it will require very efficient exertions to silence the
babbling of those who are professionally inclined to malign a peaceable
LIMERICK, June 21- On Sunday night last a party of insurgents set fire to
and totally consumed the out-offices of Mr. George MORRIS, of Pallas kenry,
consisting of stables, barn and turf-house, containing farming utensils, two
hogsheads of cider, a large quantity of potatoes, turf, &c, &c. Had it not
been for Lieutenant LAURENSON nad his party of Police the dwelling house and
all the family would have been consumed to ashes.
On the same night, a party of men with their faces disguised, entered the
house of a man named KEATING, at Aughanish, on the banks of the Shannon, and
game him a most desperate flogging.--Limerick Chronicle.
It is stated upon respectable authority, that the Assizes for the City and
County of Cork, will take place the first week in August.
Two very fine cows and a heifer, belonging to David ROON?, a farmer residing
on the lands of Lyre, in the parish of Dunbollog, barony of Barrymore, were
maliciously houghed on Monday night last.--Cork Chronicle
It is with sincere regret we are informed of the detestable outrage
committed against the property of Mr. Robert FAIR, jun. at Fortville, in
this county, on the night of the 20th instant, when twenty four stacks of
corn, and a quantity of straw was consumed in his haggard.
June 23- This morning, about one o'clock, the sentinel of the 25th,
stationed at Cratloe Cross, discovered a house on fire and gave the alarm- a
party of the Military and Police immediately repaired to the place, and
found it to the the house of Mrs. KING, of Cratloe Keale, who has been so
much persecuted by the Rockites during the winter. The Police have taken
into custody at Carrigaholt, in this county, a man who has been recognized
as one of the murderers of Major COLLIS of the county Kerry. He agrees in
every particular with the description that was published.
On Tuesday, 17th instant, Richard BARCLAY, Esq. a Magistrate of this county,
accompanied by T. KENNEDY and Thomas WINTESTON, Esqrs proceeded to the
Chapel of Knockboy, when, between tow and three hundred of the parishioners
voluntarily came forward and took the Oath of Allegiance before Mr. BARCLAY.
We trust they will see the necessity of preserving the peace of the parish,
now that they have come forward and pledged themselves under the solemn
conpact of an oath to support the laws of the country.
This country is at present perfectly peaceable and free from nightly
outrage. We sincerely trust its tranquility may be permanent.--Kerry paper.
