   Our Fermoy Correspondent telegraphed last night :—This evening a large force of armed soldiers, accompanied by an armoured car, occupied the principal streets of Fermoy, while visits were paid to the premises of Messrs. J. J. Broderick, U.D.C., Patrick street; G. Power, U.D.C., McCurtain street; Patrick Ahern, Kent street; and the Royal Hotel, Pearse square. At each house a typewritten notice was delivered pointinhg out that the proclamation recently posted under martial law had been torn down, and that the town of Fermoy had been fined in the sum of £100. Thomas O'Mahony, Sunmount, Fermoy, and J. J. Broderick, Patrick street, who were persons of authority in the town were made responsible for the payment of the fine within four days from and including the 2nd January. In consequence of the non-payment of the amount, the notice further stated that the confiscation of property to the value of £100 of the leading townsmen, as in the schedule, was directed.
   The schedule set out that the following amounts would be levied :—Mr. G. Power, cloth, value £25; Mr. Broderick, fancy goods, £25; Mr. Ahern, wines and beer, £25; the Royal Hotel, wines, £25.
   Accordingly the goods named were removed and taken to the military barracks. The proprietors refused to give any help in the removal of the goods, but the work was carried out with as little inconvenience as possible.
