MURDEROUS ASSAULT - FATAL RESULT.
Friday morning last, as the police were on patrol near Lisronagh, they
discovered a man in an almost lifeless state lying on the road, he having
been beaten thus brutally, by some persons at present unknown. The
unfortunate man's name is Dawn. The police had him removed to his own house,
which is but a short distance from the spot where this murderous attack was
made, a medical man was immediately sent for, but the poor man was totally
unable to utter a word, or even to make a sign which might lead to a
discovery of the perpetrators of this dreadful outrage. Poor Dawn is a
native of the neighborhood and always bore an excellent character. Since
writing the above we have learned that Dawn has fallen a victim to the
injuries inflicted on him. Our discovery of his brutal and murderous
assailants. We have an active and vigilant police, and we hope that in a
very short time a good amount will be given of these beastly and
blood-stained miscreants.-- Clonmel Chronicle.
