      PROVINCIAL INTELLIGENCE
      LIMERICK, JUNE 30 - Last night, three persons who personated policemen,
      forced their way into the house of Patrick Meara, care-taker, on the lands of
      Bunlickey, in the liberties of this city, and beat him unmercifully with sticks.
      He had some time since sworn information against trespassers, which is the only
      reason that can be assigned.
      On Sunday morning, between 5 and 6 o'clock, four men, two of whom were
      armed with long pistols, came to the farm-house of Mr. Meade, at Ballyegan,
      about a quarter of a mile from the military and police station at Liscordan, and
      searched it for the dairyman, who had fortunately gone to Askeaton; they ordered
      the woman to quit the employment before night, and on leaving the house, one of
      them fired a shot. They then went to the house of one M'Donnell, about tow or
      three fields distant, and gave the servant girl a severe beating with a stick,
      for having said that she knew the person who, some time since, beat Mr. Meade's
      woman.
      The fair of Spancil-hill, on Thursday last, was uncommonly crowded; buyers
      from Dublin and other parts of the country attended-three to four years old
      heifers sold readily from 3l. to 11l. and a great number purchased. Milch cows
      maintained their prices. Two year old sheep brought from 27s to 30s. each in
      large lots and hoggets 25s. Good horses were in great request, and were from
      40l. to 60l. all bought up-all other kind of stock also went off at improved
      prices.
