      PROVINCIAL INTELLIGENCE

      There are 168 for trial at Clonmel, of whom 28 are for murder.

      Patt Duffy, aged 70, an Irishman, is sentenced at Rutland Assizes to be
      hanged for a rape.

      On Thursday Sylvester Cullen, of Ballyvalden, was tried before the
      Sub-Commissioners for on the 29 September, 1822, offering a bribe to Mr. Wm.
      Biddick, (then chief officer of the preventive service on the Blackwater
      station,) to allow the landing of smuggled goods. This trail was put off on a
      former occasion, and on the present the defendant (Sylvester Cullen) was fined
      300l. Mr Biddick attended from Connemara, in the County Galway, where he was
      stationed.

      On Wednesday morning last, Lieut. John Goodwin, of Ballina, of the _____
      Garrison Barracks, dropped suddenly dead. He had been just after dressing, and
      was apparently in perfect health.- How true it is, "that in the midst of life we
      are in death."--Mayo Paper
