      PROVINCIAL NEWS
      (From the Limerick Chronicle)
      About three o'clock this morning, a party of men attacked the house of
      Lieutenant Millwood, at Courtbrack, within about a mile of this city; they
      entered by breaking the front door, and demanded arms, which not being
      forthcoming, they proceeded to search the house and broke open a writing-desk,
      in which they said there was a case of pistols concealed; they then entered a
      closet where there was a valuable and curious dressing case, which they
      destroyed; they afterwards demanded money, and Mrs. Millwood handed them five
      tenpennies, with which they were not satisfied, they searched the bed and Mrs.
      Milwood's pockets, from whence they took some silver and halfpence, and then
      left the house. It appears that plunder was not their object, as they returned
      Mr. Milwood's watch which they had in their pockets.
