      PROVINCIAL INTELLIGENCE

      LIMERICK, NOV. 10 - Twenty-two stand of firearms, surrendered at
      various times to Capt. Dumas, Chief Constable, at Hospital, were yesterday
      lodged in the County Police-office.
      Mr. Jackson is appointed to succeed Captain Dumas, as Chief Constable
      at Hospital, in this Co.- Capt. Dumas is appointed to a Barony in one of the
      Northern Counties.
      Two sheep, the property of the herdsman of Mr. M'Ardell, at Low-park,
      near Broadfort, County Clare, were maliciously houghed on Monday morning.
      The perpetrators have not been discovered, though Lieut. Bindon and the
      Police have made every exertion to secure them.
      About one o'clock on Wednesday morning last, a large party of
      miscreants as yet unknown, broke into the house of one Morrissy, who lives
      on the lands of Derrycloney, County Tipperary, part of the estate of George
      Robbins, Esq. of Hymenstown, and carried off his daughter, a very young
      girl.- This daring outrage took place within a mile of the Police stationed
      at Hymenstown.
      A few nights since, some corn, potatoes, &c. distrained for rent due
      Mr. Burton, of Ballyvarra, in the South Liberties, was entirely removed by
      the owners, to accomplish which effectually, and prevent any hindrance, they
      placed a body of people round Mr. Burton's house and those of the workmen,
      to prevent their coming out.
      On Saturday, a stout looking fellow was taken up by the Police, and
      brought before the Mayor and Captain Drought, for singing and vending to the
      streets an impious halfpenny ballad. It purported to turn into ridicule, in
      the most abominable and disgusting language, not only the Bible, but all
      Bible Societies, and went on to convey the idea, that aid from Foreign
      Powers would ultimately crush the system in these Countries. The fellow, who
      is named Connors, is committed to gaol as a vagrant, not being able to
      account from whence he is.
      Monday, at a meeting of the Corporation of this City, the Rev. Josias
      Crampton Burgess, was sworn a member of the Council. The Tolls and Customs
      were leased to the former Tenants at 1700l. for the current year.

      MARRIAGE IN HIGH LIFE - We understand that the Hon. Sexton Perry,
      second son of the Right Hon. the Earl of Limerick, is about to lead to the
      hymeneal altar the highly-gifted Miss Cockayne, grand-daughter of the late
      Lord Cullen.--Limerick Observer.
