      PROVINCIAL INTELLIGENCE

      ENNIS, SEPT. 13 - Tuesday, as the Right Hon. John Ormsby Vandeleur and
      Sir Hugh Dillon Massy, Bart. were riding toward Kilrush, from Kilmore, the
      seat of Poole Hickman, Esq. the horse of the former becoming restive, threw
      him on his side, which was bruised severely; he also received a slight
      contusion on the forehead. His carriage was sent for immediately, and he was
      removed to his mansion, at Kilrush, when medical assistance was sent for -
      we are happy to learn, that no dangerous consequences are apprehended.
      Thursday, a poor man dropped apparently dead, in the streets of
      Kilrush. Will it be believed that want of food was the cause of this
      melancholy circumstance?
      The entire amount of Presentments granted at the last Assizes of the
      County of Clare, is £8916.5s.0d.

      CORK, SEPT. 11 - On Wednesday night last, some keepers who had
      distrained crops on the lands of Ballinure, at Blackrock, within the
      liberties of Cork, where there were two years rent due to the landlord, John
      T. Rye, Esq. were visited by an armed party, who ordered them into a house,
      on threat of shooting them if they disobeyed. When inside, the door was
      locked on them, and all the corn, &c., comprising the chief part of the
      distress, was removed from the lands. This is another specimen of what the
      liberals term "returning tranquility."
      The Arabian pony rode by Lord Combermere, carried Napoleon at the
      battle of Waterloo.
      Wednesday the Anne and Amelia sailed from Cork with convicts to New
      South Wales.
