      HEAD OFFICE OF POLICE - Informations were sworn on Thursday, at the
      above office, to the effect that Mr. Milliken, of Grafton-street, had met
      Mr. Thos. Sheehan, of the Dublin Evening Mail, on that day, on one of the
      Quays, and had some angry words with him respecting a publication which
      appeared in The Dublin Evening Mail, which he, (Mr. Milliken) supposed might
      have been intended to apply to him. It was further stated, that, in
      consequence of those angry expressions, Mr. Thomas Sheehan drew forth a
      pistol, and said that he would defend himself at any hazard. Informant
      stated, that under these circumstances it was to be apprehended, if the
      parties were not bound over to keep the peace, that a duel would be the
      consequence, whereby the life of one or possibly the lives of both, might be
      lost. Mr. Farrell, Chief Peace Officer, in consequence took the parties into
      custody, and brought them before the Magistrates of the above office, when
      they were each bound over to keep the peace, themselves in the sum of one
      thousand pounds each, and two sureties, each in the sum of two hundred
      pounds. The sureties for Mr. Milliken are Messrs. Moore and Forest, of
      Grafton-street - those for Mr. Sheahan are Messrs. Glynn and Hoare, of the
      Dublin Evening Mail.
