DANGEROUS ACCIDENT - On Sunday last a young man named Moran of
Carnagloush, parish of Kilgarvin, was out shooting and when in the act of
crossing a fence the gun went off and shattered his left arm and hand
fearfully. Doctors Whittaker and O'Dowds attended the sufferer and were
obliged to perform immediate amputation. We are happy to state that the
unfortunate young man is progressing as favorably as can be expected under
the circumstances. It will be in the recollection of our readers that a
similar accident occurred to our townsman, Mr. George Hearne, some months
since, who, we rejoice, is now perfectly recovered and at present enjoying
sun-bathing at Ross.
AFFRAY WITH THE REVENUE POLICE
Yesterday evening the Revenue party stationed here proceeded on
information to Ardnaree, and some shouting having been raised a young man
named Cowley came in for some severe knocks on the head and body from the
butt ends of two or three muskets. The nature of the provocation we could
not learn, but the case calls for investigation. Were it not for the active
interference of the Ardnaree party of Constabulary there would have been a
serious affair between the people and the Revenue.
