      Waterford, March 1?. A melancholy Affair happened last Friday in the County
      Goal between two Lunaticks; one of which, named Garrat, has been confined
      upwards of 12 Years; the other, Alexander M'Owen, formerly a Minor belonging to
      Kilmathomas, but some Time ago, at blasting a Mine he happened to be too near
      the Explosion, and has not been in his Senses ever since. He was put into the
      same Room with the above Garret on Tuesday last, and on Friday they happened to
      disagree, when Garrat overpowered him, and with a Stone beat him so severely in
      the Head that he now lies in languishing Condition.
      Last Week the Journeymen Weavers of Carrick assembled in a riotous and

      of those Combinators against Masters having Apprentices to said Business, and
      made an Attempt to pull down the House of said Barron, which occasioned a Shot
      therefrom that wounded one of the Riotors but not mortally.
