Cork, May 7. Colonel Gray's Regiment of Foot is daily expected from Galway
to quarter here with Brudenell's.
Last Friday Night Mr. Thomas Rogers of George's-street was attacked by
three Robbers near Ronayne's Court on the Road to Passage. One of the Villains
seized the Reins of his Bridle and demanded Mr. Roger's Money, who answered with
a Blow of a loaded Whip which knock'd him down; on this the second Fellow snap'd
at the Bridle, but Mr. Rogers clapt Spurs to his Mare and forced away from him;
the third Fellow was at some Distance and thought to have knock'd Mr. Rogers off
his Mare, but he received the Stroke on his Arm, and happily got clear off.
