" We hear from Ennis that a most barberous murder was committed last Monday night by one Nolan, a cabinet maker, and Denis Egan, gunsmith, on the body of a poor man, who was coming out of his own house into the street, by running him through the body with a sword. Egan was overheard asking Nolan was the sword sharp enough, who replied he would engage it would do his business; they are both lodged in jail. "
