      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, January 23, 1850

      ATTACK ON A FARM HOUSE - On the 7th inst., the house of a farmer named
      Conway, residing near Roscrea, was attacked, the windows broken and a shot fired
      in through them. The supposed cause of the outrage is that Conway had taken some
      land from which tenants had been ejected.--Nenagh Guardian.

      AMAZONIAN CONFLICT - As the Widow Laden, of Artrasna, near Lissadell, was
      leaving this town, about a week since, on her return from the market on a cart
      with her son, a small boy about 12 years of age, when near Tullyhill a man
      overtook her and insisted on getting on the cart. She, fearing he purposed
      robbing her, opposed him, and when he endeavoured to get on the cart, whether
      she would or not, she threw him off; he then attacked her with a stick, which,
      she wrested from him, and turning his own weapon against himself, effectually
      succeeded in preventing him from getting upon the cart. She then belaboured the
      horse with hearty good will with the stick, which turned out to be a formidable
      cane sword, and left the fellow far behind in a few minutes. He has not since
      been heard of. -- Sligo Guardian.

      COURT OF QUEEN'S BENCH
      Criminal Information.
      The Queen, at the prosecution of John Jardine, v. F.W. Conway, Esq.,
      proprietor of the Evening Post.
      Mr. Whiteside, Q.C., (with whom was Mr. Napier, Q.C.,) applied for a conditional
      order for a criminal information against Mr. Conway, for publishing certain
      documents and articles in the Evening Post newspaper, of which he was the
      registered proprietor. he moved on the affidavit of the applicant, who deposed
      at great length to the facts connected with the procession, &c., of Orangemen,
      which took place at Dolly's Brae, in the month of July last, and stated the he
      believed it was the intention of the government to prosecute him, at the next
      assizes for the county of Down for joining that procession , and that certain
      publications, which appeared in the Evening Post, viz., Mr. Berwick's report of
      the inquiry at Castlewellan, Mr. Redington's letter relative to the dismissal of
      Lord Roden and the Messrs. Beers, together with various leading articles, were
      calculated to prejudice him upon his trial, as the newspaper in question was
      extensively circulated in the north of Ireland.
      The Court granted the conditional order.
