Fermoy, Wednesday.    
Intelligence has just reached Fermoy of a number of extraordinary outrages which were committed in the vicinity of Castlelyons on Monday night last, when several farmsteads were visited, no less than seven iron gates torn down, twisted out of all shape, and placed on the public road. The first place struck was the residence of Mr. Patrick Aherne, poor law guardian, Farran, where an iron gate was smashed and a quantity of glass broken in a greenhouse. At Mr. Patterson's three iron gates were dislodged. A timber door was broken to pieces, and the gate leading into Mr. Patterson's corn field torn down. At Mr. Garrett Verlin's, Mr. Brooder's, and Mr. Toohill's iron gates were smashed. At the latter place the miscreants were busily engaged breaking a car in the yard when they were disturbed. At Miss Mahony's two timber sheds were knocked down, one of them being iron roofed. The gate piers at Berry Hill were tumbled down, and the thatch removed from a labourer's cottage, besides other property damaged. No clue has been obtained to the perpetrators up to the present, but the police are making active inquiries.

Limerick, Thursday.    
On the Glensharrold Estate to-day a number of evictions were carried out. Some time since, at Foynes (Newcastle West) Petty Sessions, warrrants for the possession of eight tenants' holdings were obtained from the local magistrates, and to-day they were put into execution. John Ahern, occupying some twenty-five acres, was one of the tenants to be dispossessed, but on the arrival of the sheriff's party, Ahern had a conversation with the receiver, and a settlement being effected, the tenant was allowed to remain in occupation.
