On Wednesday night, a large farm house on the lands of Dyon, near Crusheen,
the property of Edward Galway, Esq. in which were several farming utensils, and
other effects, was maliciously set fire to and consumed. This outrage is upon
the Rock system, a tenant being lately dispossessed for non-payment of rent.
