      HIGHWAY ROBBERY- On Sunday evening, as Mr. Syme was returning by the
      Canal-bridge, Cross-guns, from Glasnevin, he was attacked by a gang of robbers,
      and plundered of a gold watch, chain and seals. He was knocked down by the
      villains, who used stones for that purpose and received considerable injury.

      The Heart of Oak, Phillips, cleared out from Limerick, for St. John's, New
      Brunswick. She carried 98 passengers.

      ANOTHER SMUGGLER
      On Thursday, his Majesty's brig, Pelorous, 18 guns, arrived at Cove with a
      handsome lugger, the Hope, which she had captured on that morning after a long
      chase, about 15 leagues off the Old Head of Kinsale, and during which 50 shots
      had been fired by the Pelorous, but only one of which, the last, took effect ,
      and passed through the lugger, the object being, if possible, to bring her to
      without damage. Yesterday morning the lugger was brought to the
      Custhomhouse-quay, where her cargo, consisting of 520 bales of tobacco, 13
      chests of tea, and 7 kegs spirits, were landed and lodged in the King's stores.
      The crew, consisting of 26 men, have been committed to the county gaol.- Two of
      them have been recognized as part of the crew of the Banshee, another smuggler
      captured some time ago, but who were then liberated by order of the
      Commissioners of Customs.-- Southern Reporter.

      A heavy fall of snow took place here on Thursday evening. It was preceded by
      heavy and long continued rain, attended with several loud claps of thunder in
      the direction of Caher.-- Clonmel Paper.
