| Yesterday, ninety-four persons, who had been under
the rule of transportation in the New Prison, were shipped on board at the quay.
Kelly and Keatinge, the porters, who were to have been executed on Saturday
last, are among those now transporting.
| Yesterday, the officers of the Peace-establishment,
under the direction of the Superintendant Magistrate, apprehended Neill Carr,
James Lane, and William Shea, who are charged with having been of the party that
robbed the houses of Dean Carleton, at Coolock, and Mr. Smith's, of
Golden-bridge, a few nights since. They were brought before the Superintendant
Magistrate, where, after undergoing a strict examination, were committed to
prison. The public are highly indebted to the exertions that have been made by
the peace-officers, which have been so successful, as to have secured these
offenders shortly after the commitment of their atrocities, and which we hope
will be the means of bringing to justice a desparate daring Gang, who have
committed many outrages and atrocities.
| William Shea is a gardener and a fidler ; Neill Carr
is also a gardener ; James Lane says he is a sawyer ; the latter, it is said,
had upon him when taken, a black coat of Dean Carleton's, and an etwee in his
pocket of that gentleman's. Shea, it is mentioned, was Captain of the gang, and
on him, we hear, a pair of small clothes of Mr. Smith's were identified. These
offenders with others their confederates, are supposed to be the banditti that
likewise robbed the house of Mr. Evan's and Mr. Meares, at the north side of the
country, and of Mr. Wilkinson's steward, at Terrenure, near Templeogue. The
prisoner Lane, it seems, bears a mark on his side of a shot he received from
Dean Carleton when attacking his house. The companion of these desperadoes who
was taken up out of the canal on Sunday morning, it is stated, was named John
Quinn, who was shot by one of his accomplices the night before, in the house of
Mr. Smith, thro' mistake.
| The number of coasting vessels which arrived here
with grain and flour, including five American ships laden with wheat, and the
potatoe [sic] sloops increased yesterday morning to seventy-nine, and more would
have been added to the number but for the setting in of a strong south easterly
galethe immediate consequence was that potatoes have fallen from eight
British shillings to seven the hundred, and a further reduction may be expected
during the present week. Bacon and ham fell in Francis-street, on the same
morning 4s. 8d. the hundred, and butter 2s.
| A fleet of 86 sail of merchantmen sailed from Cove
for the West-Indies on Thursday last, under the convoy of the Melampus, Capt.
Moore, and Hussar, Capt. Littlehales.
| It was yesterday reported, that an army of ten
thousand men will, early next month, be collected at Cork, from whence they will
be embarked on an expedition to the West-Indies.
| We hear from Antrim, that a duel was fought there,
early on the morning of the 29th instant between Ensigns William Hamilton M'Cay
and Patrick Fitzpatrick, both of the Dunbarton fencible volunteers, now
stationed in that country ; after each had fired two shots, happily without
effect, Capt. M'Dougall and Lieut. Rattray, their seconds, interposed, and
effected a reconciliation. The affair, it is said, originated from something
which had passed on the evening of the 17th.One of the balls grazed the
scabbard of Mr. M'Cay's sword.
