LIMERICK, JULY 17 - Fifty-nine persons were admitted into our Fever
Hospital this week - 118 are there this day.
The flax crops are expected to be very abundant this season, hundreds of
hogsheads of seed in this district having been sown this year more than in any
LIMERICK, JULY 21 - On Wednesday last, as James Lee, land steward to James
Massey, Esq., and Pat. McCarthy, gardener, were returning from Ballingarry to
Glenwilliam, after distraining some cattle, they were fired at from behind a
ditch, but fortunately received no injury. - On Saturday, several armed men
broke into the house of George Hore, a farmer, near Castletown Roche, County
Cork, which they robbed, and also wounded some of the family. - A party of
ruffians, who attempted to break into the house of Thomas Pim, in the Barony of
Fermoy, on Friday, were repulsed after an exchange of shots.
The Insurrection Act is to be withdrawn from the Liberties of Limerick,
except the portion in the South, where the burnings occurred.
It is a circumstance interesting to Ireland, that the first Episcopal
Protestant Missionary who is to be permanently stationed at Jerusalem, and to
open a place of Christian Worship for the Jews, should be an Irishman, in the
person of the son of the Rev. William Lewis, of Limerick.
