SACRILEGE - About ten o'clock in the morning of the 21st instant, a fellow
named Tim Dea, supposed to be a native of Kerry, entered the Church of Newport,
through the vestry-room window. He was seen forcing his way into the sacred
edifice by Mr. Langor Carrey, who informed the police, who immediately proceeded
to the church and found the thief crouched and endeavouring to conceal himself
under a table in the vestry-room. He was instantly arrested and committed for
trial. --Nenagh Guardian.
On Friday night last, a fine sheep belonging to Meredith Thompson, Esq. was
stolen off his lands near Keash, and brought to a lonely place some distance off
where it was killed and divided. We regret to hear that depredations of this
kind are on the increase to that locality. The police are making every exertion
to discover the thieves but as yet without success. On the same night, two sacks
of corn were stolen from a man named O'Gara, near Riverstown- no trace of
thieves can be discovered.--Sligo Guardian.
