      BOW-STREET - Thursday John Neeman and P. M'Auliffe, two Irishmen, clad in
      the most wretched garments, were brought up, charged with having been concerned
      in the murder of four men, at Churchlands, in the county Limerick.- One night in
      the month of January, 1822, a large mob of persons made an attack upon the
      Police Barracks, at Churchlands, and having first shot the sentinel upon duty at
      the entrance, they got to the interior of the barracks, and out of seventeen
      policemen who were there, they killed three, and 8 others were left dangerously
      wounded. The prisoner M'Auliffe, was known at the time to have been one of the
      principal leaders in the attack, and Neeman, was also known as an active
      participator, but they both escaped. A short time ago information was received
      at Dublin that they were to be found in London, and Farrel & Mcartney, two of
      the Chief Officers of Police, were sent over in quest of them. These Officers,
      with the assistance of Ruthven and Bishop, of this establishment, apprehended
      the prisoners. M'Auliffe was found in a miserable hole in Grafton-court,
      Marylebone, sleeping on the floor with nine other men. Neeman was taken at a
      house in Cato-street. The men underwent a short examination, and were removed
      into confinement until they can be conveyed to Ireland.
