OUTRAGE AND ATTEMPT TO MURDER.- Thomas Studdert, Esq. of Danganelly house, was
waylaid on his return from Kilrush on Wednesday evening by two men, one of whom
secured his horse by the reins, while the other inflicted a severe wound on his
head with a stone. John Dosty and Michael Honan have been committed for trial
for this outrage. It is believed that the miscreants were hired by other parties
to assassinate Mr. Studdert, as he has taken an active part in successfully
checking abuses and exposing frauds in connexion with the administration of poor
laws in his neighbourhood. -- Limerick Chronicle.
