      PROVINCIAL INTELLIGENCE

      LIMERICK, DEC. 24 - The haggard of a farmer named William Hayes,
      residing at Ballyscanlan, barony of Upper Connelloe, in this County, was set
      fire to on Monday night by some malicious incendiaries, and all the hay and
      oats contained therein consumed. The perpetrators have not been discovered,
      although the Police made every search.

      Robbery of Arms- Queen's Co.- On Friday night, seven or eight men
      armed, with their faces blackened broke into the house of M.R. Burnet, of
      Fishertown, by the rere, and forced the servants into the front parlour
      where Mr. and Mrs. Burnet were, in which they shut them all up, and
      proceeded upstairs to his bed chamber, where they took one musket, two cases
      of pistols, two swords, and a powder horn; and after reaching another room
      where his grandson lay asleep, without waking him they departed, without
      suffering any violence, demanding, or taking of any other article
      whatsoever. It is much to be regretted that such an outrage should commence
      in this hitherto peaceable County.

      On Wednesday last, about two o'clock in the afternoon, whilst a
      Gentleman was receiving rents in the house of Mr. D. Brody, of
      Mount-Shannon, in the County of Galway, a number of people entered the room
      where the Gentleman was sitting, with the apparent intention of speaking
      business when one of the party contrived to take away a valuable musket the
      property of the owner of the house. Nothing more strongly proving the
      existence of a regular combination amongst the Peasantry that this
      transaction; the numerous family of Mr. Brody being all in the house, some
      of whom must have detected the robber, had he not been carefully sheltered
      from observation by his associates.
