KILKENNY, MAY 1- On Thursday night, the house of a man named Glindon,
residing on the lands of Rabeenaroche, near Dungarven, barony of Gowran, was
attacked by a numerous armed party, who fired several shots into the dwelling,
and endeavoured to obtain admission. Glindon returned the fire, but from the
inconvenient position in which he stood, the shot, it is supposed took no
effect. The miscreants threatened him with death if he dared to disclose the
circumstances of the attack.
A few nights previously, a Notice, of which the following is a copy, had
been affixed to a tree near Glindon's house:
"Mr. Glindon or Glindons I inform you to lave off you land jobing or if not

It will pay you a frightful visit."--Moderator.
