      PROVINCIAL INTELLIGENCE

      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
      after this timely notice you will ruer the consequence-take notice of his else
      It will pay you a frightful visit."--Moderator.

      TIPPERARY- CLONMEL, May 1- We regret to have to state that, on Thursday
      night last, another house, belonging to B.B. Bradshaw, Esq. was burnt on the
      lands of Allen, near Tipperary.
      Fifteen persons to be tried this day, Saturday, at the Sessions of Cashel,
      which terminated yesterday at 12 o'clock. No case of importance came before the
      Court during the Sessions.

      LIMERICK, MAY 1- On Sunday night last, about eleven o'clock, the house of a
      man named M'Mahon, on the lands of Ballyhonelgban, near Pallis Kenry, was
      maliciously burned, and every article of clothing and furniture consumed. A barn
      situate on lands the property of Michael B. Whyte, Esq. near Shanagolden, was
      burned down on Saturday night. This outrage is supposed to have originated in
      the eviction of the former tenant, Tuesday night, a house belonging to Mr.
      Kelly, in this County, was maliciously consumed.
      Last week, Catherine Glin, aged 60, was safely delivered of a daughter in
      the Limerick Lying-in-Hospital.

      FERMANAGH- On Easter Saturday evening, as Francis M'Goggy, an industrious
      dealing man, was returning home from the market of Clogher, accompanied by his
      wife, they were way-laid and attacked by four men at a short distance from the
      town, M'Coggy himself robbed of his watch and 20l. and so beaten that he has
      since died of his wounds. The woman was knocked down into a ditch, in which she
      concealed herself until the villains departed. They were all known by both.
      M'Goggy and his wife, whose examinations have been taken against them by a
      Magistrate. An active pursuit was set on foot for their apprehension, and we
      learn that three of them have since been taken.
