      CLONMEL, JULY 17 - Thursday evening last a man of the name of Edmond Guidra, was
      brought to the infirmary in Cashel, with his skull severely fractured, one of
      his legs broken, his body severely wounded, and covered with blood, in
      consequence of a beating he received from four men, with their faces blackened.
      This dreadful outrage was perpetrated at so early an hour as four o'clock in the
      evening, at Templemore, within two miles and a half of Cashel, and three miles
      of the place where the Kinnealys were murdered. This unhappy man's crime against
      the murderous Rockites was, that he took the meadowing of part of the lands of
      Templemore from Thomas Moore, Esq., of Cashel. These ruffians first attacked,
      with the handles of a pitchfork, a poor man who was working in the same field
      with Guidra; but on begging of them to spare his life, as he was only a poor
      laborer, working for his day's hire, they left him and made towards poor Guidra,
      who, on seeing them approach, pulled off his shoes and stockings, and ran off as
      fast as he could, but had not gone far when he was overtaken and beat in the
      savage manner we have related.
