      CORK, JUNE 28 - On Thursday last, a noted character, named Joseph
      Howard, was apprehended by John Kiely, Esq. of the police establishment, near
      Kanturk; he formed one of a party who, it will be recollected, attacked the
      Charter schoolhouse, near Charleville, on a Sunday, while the family were at
      Church, and having demanded arms, attempted to shoot a servant boy. This fellow
      was long sought after; and when taken into custody, he said his name was Joseph
      Meade, and denied any knowledge of Charleville or his ever being there.
      Accordingly, on the following day, he was sent under a proper escort to the
      scene of his former outrage, and was fully identified, after which he made a
      disclosure of the entire transaction.--Constitution.

      WEXFORD, JUNE 23 - On Monday, an altercation took place in a public house
      at Kilmick, where some of the police were drinking, when a man of hte name of
      Richard Bennet, of Fearney-hill, in the Barony of Forth, was stabbed in the
      thigh and belly, of which wound he lies dangerously ill. - Serjeant James
      Johnson, and James W. Walsh, sub-constable of the police establishment, have
      been committed to gaol, charged with the assaults.--[ Herald.

      CLONMEL, JUNE 30 - On Friday morning last, two sons of Mr. Fogarty, of
      Borrisoleigh, went with a party to make a distress on lands in the neighbourhood
      of Templemore, when they were resisted by Jas. Gorman, the owner of the cattle,
      who, it seems, was served with a notice not to pay the rents to Mr. Fogarty. In
      the affray that ensued, we regret to state that one man was shot dead by Phillip
      Fogarty, who, on seeing him run with a pitchfork at his brother, fired the fatal
      shot. William Fogarty lies dangerously ill from a wound he received, and in the
      opinion of the Surgeon who is attending him, cannot be removed to the county
      gaol, where his brother had been sent. Several on both sides are severely
      wounded. It is reported that the mother of the unhappy man that lost his life,
      has become insane. The deceased has left a young wife, en famille, and two
      children. Two assistants of the Fogartys are also committed to the county gaol.

      SLIGO, JUNE 30 - The following threatening notice was posted on a chapel
      door near Easky, in this county, and was torn down by one of the police under
      William Gardiner, Esq:
      "Notice is hereby given to the Landholders of Atingware, any or either of
      them that proposes for any other man's holding, shall be made a miserable
      example.---"Signed Captain Rock, under the Grace of God."

      The Very Rev. U. Fitzgerald has been appointed Provost of Ennis for the
      ensuing year.
