      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, December 19, 1849


      ROBBERY- A daring robbery was committed last week, at the Outerard barracks
      by the servant of Captain Greer, and another soldier, who have taken £30 in bank
      notes, with a large quantity of plate and jewellry, from the gallant captain's
      apartment, and dressed themselves in some of his best clothes, left the barrack
      at about eight o'clock, and came into this town. They were quickly followed by
      Constable Bodily of the Outerard police, and arrested in the house of one
      Colquin, where they were sleeping. All the property was found in their
      possession, and they have been accordingly committed for trial.- Much credit is
      due to the constable in thus tracing and capturing the blunderers.--Galway
      Vindicator.

      The Weekly News says.- There is a deadly (newspaper) feud between Mr. Duffy
      and the editor of the Irishman, although both are Young Irelanders. So many of
      these gentlemen repeal any union amongst themselves, that they seem to think it
      easy to do as much for their country.

      The Waterford Guardians raised the salary of Mr. Doyle, clerk of union,
      from £100 to £120 a year, but he not being satisfied without an assistant, has
      resigned the situation.

      Mr. O'Connor, late vice-guardian, has accepted the office of assistant
      guardian of the Waterford board, taking chance for the payment of services.

      Fifty of the 68th Regt. in Galway, with fifty of the Constabulary, are
      ordered to be stationed at Moycullen, to protect the poor law collection of
      rates in that district.
