      UNPLEASANT OCCURRENCE

      A private of the Revenue Police Court, stationed in this Town, named
      M'Nally, a man of the very best character, had been annoyed at a late hour
      last evening by some idle persons in the street, as a Policeman-upon which
      he turned round upon the crowd in order to punish some of the persons, when
      he received a severe beating. In a moment of irritation he discharged his
      pistol, and wounded a Baker named Roche, under the arm; the bullet ran
      through the flesh, and the wound is but very slight. The Policeman was then
      assailed by the mob, and received a most severe beating by which his
      jaw-bone was fractured. We hear he is in imminent danger.



      ROBBERY OF THE WATERFORD MAIL COACH - An offence of this nature of great
      magnitude, was the subject of an investigation at the Head Police office
      yesterday. The material details are subjoined:- The house of Milward & Co.
      Waterford, have been in the habit of receiving remittances of Bank Post
      Bills, as common parcels, by the Waterford Mail, from their agents in
      Dublin, Messrs. William Stewart, Hamilton and Co. From time to time some of
      these parcels, and particularly two, containing Post Bills to the amount of
      £1000 and £480, have been missed. The Bills, thus embezzled, have been
      circulated at different pawnbrokers, and other shops in town; forged
      acceptances being for that purpose affixed; of course, when presented to the
      bank, they have been dishonored. In consequence of information received,
      Peace Officers Lynch and Manly proceeded on Friday last to Ballitore, and
      there arrested a man named Silk (driver of the Waterford Coach) and his
      wife. These persons were brought up to town, and underwent an examination,
      at which a Mrs. Conners, a shopkeeper in Capel-street, and a Mr. Harris, a
      pawnbroker in Great Britain-street, attended.-The former, with her servant
      maid, identified Silk, and the latter, his wife, as the person who passed
      some of the Post Bills in question. The prisoners were committed for further
      examinations-- Dublin Paper.
