      Prosecution under the Game Laws at Macroom.- The Meeting of the Magistrates for the purpose of convicting certain individuals for a breach of the Game Laws, took place on Saturday. Informations were lodged against thirteen Gentlemen- the first called on was Mr. Henry Good, of Crossmahon; the information charged him with having appeared on a certain day, between November, 1822, and September, 1823, on the lands of Carrigarity, with a gun and dog; the information was read by Mr. Murphy, Agent to the Commissioners of Stamps, and it was alleged to have been sworn before Sir Augustine Warren, Bart., Magistrate, in and for the County of Cork.
     Counsellor Payne, (who was engaged for all the traversers,) immediately submitted that the imformations must all fail to the ground, inasmuch as the law particularly required the words Magistrate of and for the County of Cork, and not in and for, should be used. In corroboration of his opinion, he quoted Palley, and others; and on the question being submitted to Counsellor Deane, who acted as Assessor to the Magistrates, he pronounced the objection valid. Mr. Murphy, however, alleged his intention of appealing to an higher Court on this point; but on Mr. Payne's bringing forward another objection; namely, that the informations though alleged to have been sworn in October, 1823, were not actually so till January, 1824;- and that the time limited by law for lodging such information had expired. He allowed the objection was fatal to him, and submitted, to the no small gratification of the accused individuals.


     At Portsmouth, several vessels of the largest size are building, including the Princess Charlotte, of 110 guns, - the Neptune, of 120- the Indus, of 80 - with the Euphrates, the Fox, the President, the Thalia, the Gerberus, and several frigates, sloops and bombs.
     At Plymouth, there are in a great state of forwardings, the Hindostan, of 80 guns - the London, of 110-the Leda, the Prosecpine, &c.
     At Pembroke, the Goliah and Vengeance, of 84 guns each, which could be ready in a few weeks - the Seahorse, the Nemesis, the Hotspur, the Thisbe, the Druid, and several others.
     At Chatham, the preparations in the dock-yard would seem still more formidable, for there the Royal George, of 120 guns, is almost ready to pour forth its thunders on the enemies of the country, as are the Powerful, of 84,- the Formidable, of 86-the Mercury, the Mermaid, &c.
     At Deptford, in a state of similar preparation, are the Monarch, of 84 guns - the Worcester, of 52; &c; and at Woolwich are building the Boscawen of 60, the Hebe, the Medusa, the Clyde, &c. &c.
     Nor are we content with thus preparing to keep up our naval force by the building of new ships in our own ports, for several vessels are now almost ready to launch at Bombay, including the Asia and the Bombay, of 84 guns each.
     In addition to these there is on the American station a strong naval force, consisting of the Gloucester, of 80 guns; the Ganges, of 86 guns; the Superb, of 78 guns; the Spartiate, of 64 guns; the Cambridge, of 82 guns; with twelve frigates; none of which could decline an engagement with the French frigates of 68 guns, which those in Best are described to carry, but which is undoubtedly an exaggeration.
     Captain Stoddart is appointed to the Primrose, 18 guns, at Plymouth, for the West Indies; Lieut. G.F. Dixon, of the Tweed, to the Griper; Lieut. J.C. Bennet from the Arachne to be a supernumerary Lieutenant of the Ramillies; Lieut. A.H. Kellet, to the Arachne; Lieut. John Adams(a) to the Grasshopper; Mr. D.

o the Editor of the Belfast Newsletter

     "SIR,- It is with regret that I have to inform you of a riot that took place on the 15th instant, at a fair in a village called Lawriestown, alias Beragh, in the County of Tyrone. A little before sun set a body of Ribbonmen, about 500 in number, assembled there and commenced open hostilities against all who, they thought, entertained sentiments contrary to their own. The Protestants, unable to resist their fury, took refuge in the houses and left them in undisputed possession of the street. The rioters then assailed the house of a Mr. James Lindsay, demanding some Gentlemen against whom their rage was more immediately directed, to be delivered to them. In the meantime, a party of yeomanry was sent for to disperse the mob; and on their arrival they were under the necessity of firing some shots before they could get them to desist from their abuse. The men, unwilling to spill blood, pointed their arms in an oblique direction, to a young man by name of Adam Smyth, who was going home from the fair on hearing the uproar thought fit to return to see what it meant, and unfortunately received one of the bullets as he entered the town and was killed dead on the spot. The Ribbonmen fled in all directions, and, I may say, there was no more damage done. Mr. Smyth was a Protestant, and a young man of such unexceptionable character, that he is lamented by his friends, and mourned by his acquaintances-as to enemies, he had none to rejoice at his fall, if even an enemy could be base enough to exult at his unhappy fate.

     We have seen in the ultra portion of the Dublin Papers a statement of depredations committed by some Ribbonmen of the County of Galway, on the house and concerns of a Mr. Power of Mount Equity. We confess that the paragraph astonished us, knowing, as we do, that the County of Galway enjoys at this moment the most perfect tranquility. We shall not take it on ourselves to contradict the statement, untill we shall have an opportunity of enquiring into the truth or falsity of it; but this we may be allowed to say, that we very much doubt the entire story. If the Gentleman's house and concerns were attacked, that is no reason that the midnight ruffians should be termed Ribbonmen-for the Dublin Editor should know that there are others than Ribbonmen who can draw a trigger, or set fire to a hay-stack. Those who live by the insubordination of the "mere Irish," overcharge their faults and vices, and look thought green glasses upon the offences which they commit. We shall enquire about this circumstance; and we are of opinion that matters will be cleared up satisfactorily. This, we can assure the public, that the conversations which we occasionally hold with the County Magistrates are of a most agreeable nature, and induce us to think that the County of Galway might dispense with the services of the Police Gentry, whose "valuable labours" are now confined to the extermination of puppy dogs and untraceable scare-crows-may, sometimes, the grouse and widgeon come within the calibre of the loyal cartouche-box.

Galway, Monday, February 16, 1824


     Yesterday morning, about eight o'clock, Mr. Goodison, Chief Peace Officer, of College-street Divisional Police-office, despatched a party of Peace-officers to the neighbourhood of Ball's-bridge, with directions to disperse a number of persons who it was understood were to assemble there for the purpose of fighting dogs and hunting badgers. When the Peace-officers arrived at the place, their attention was drawn to another scene which more imperatively called for their interference. They perceived a party of Gentlemen in an adjoining field, some of whom were evidently about to fight a duel. The officers immediately took the Gentlemen, whom they saw with pistols (which were cocked) in their hands, into custody. The principals, Thomas Spring Rice, Esq., and Waller O'Grady, Esq., to whom the seconds were about to hand the pistols, effected their escape. The seconds, namely, Henry Baron Robeck and James Franks, Esq., were brought to College-st. Police-office, where they were each held to bail, to keep the peace, themselves in 500l. each, & two sureties, in 250l. each.- The sureties for Mr. Franks were Judge Day and Mr. O'Driscoll; sureties for Baron Robeck, were Mr. Gaskin and Mr. O'Driscoll, the latter Gentleman having offered his services, a second friend whom Baron Robeck had sent for as bail not having at that time arrived at the office.

     A Peerage has been offered to the Lord Chief Justice Abbott, but we are assured his Lordship declined.

(From the Mayo Constitution)

     In this paper, on Thursday, was mentioned the death of WILLIAM H. BUSTEED, Esq. On that day there was but little inclination to enlarge on this melancholy event, but now that the last sad rites which separate him from his friends are over, and that reflection leads us to look back upon the past, the writer of these lines (in no otherwise connected with him than by the ties of friendship) would pay his feeble tribute and he is fully aware how feeble and inadequate to, the character of an honest man, and a valuable member of society.
     Mr. B. was a native of the county Kerry, from whence he came into this county in the year 1810, where he established The Mayo Constitution, of which he has since been sole proprietor. To say that he was a man of honest mind, upright principle, and feeling heart, is to assert what I believe few who ever knew him will deny. The writer of these lines had many opportunities of knowing him intimately, and he can, with the strictest truth, assert that he never saw him in any, even the slightest trace of an opposite feeling and character.
     As a Journalist, the notice taken of his original articles (when circumstances called for such) by some of the most respectable English papers, proved his competency in this department. He had, of course, to encounter enmity and opposition-who, in such a character, ever had not. But we may most easily assert, that it was no part of his inclination to provoke his own cause from the attack of the aggressor.
     As a member of society, I believe there are few persons in Castlebar or its vicinity who have not some reason to regret his loss-his untiring attention to the charitable institutions-his willingness to stand forward upon every occasion when he could be any service, and to "bear the burden and heat of the day"-the distress of 1822 and the different loan and charitable institutions arising out of that event-bible societies, and school societies, and every society which had for its object the glory of God or the good of his fellow man, in soul or body, most fully e????; and it is a fact, but too well known how frequently his own business was neglected for that of the charities in which he was interested.
     In his domestic relations, the warm attachment of all those connected with his establishment, and the esteem and affection of all who knew him intimately fully prove his value. As a father-as a husband-as a brother- it is not for the writer of this article to speak of him; the deep affliction of his departed family affords, in those relations, the strongest testimony.
     Such is the resemblance which, in a hurried moment memory presents of the man whom I well knew, and whom to know, was to esteem. The language of panegyric is not part of my present design. I speak faithfully of him as I knew him from observation which an intimate acquaintance afforded. I mean not to assert that he was without faults-he had them as every son of Adam has, but no one more freely acknowledged or more sincerely lamented them. He is now removed from this worldly scene, amidst all his usefulness, and while yet in the prime of life, death had no respect of persons, and he too has received the final summons from his God, and has caused a blank in our society, which, whether we consider him in public or private capacity, we can but ill afford, and which it will be no easy matter to fill up.
     To his friends and to his afflicted family, there is even in his death much cause for thankfulness and consolation. After a severe and painful illness, he quietly resigned his spirit in to the hands of his God, looking simply and solely for salvation to the merits of a crucified Reedemmer; and among his last articulate words, but a few minutes before his decease, was the happy exclamation- "Thanks be to God which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ"
     His mortal remains were yesterday interred in the Church-yard of Castlebar, and the great and respectable body which followed him to the grave, is a proof of the estimation in which he was held. The Church was crowded to excess, I believe never before witnessed; and an admirable and impressive discourse suited to the occasion was delivered by Mr. Smith, form the 11th chapter of Proverbs, and 32d verse-"The righteous hath hope in his death."

     It appears by the London Gazette of Saturday, that Lord Charles Wellesley, second son of the Duke of Wellington, has been Gazetted an Ensign "by purchase" in the 82d Regiment.
     His Majesty has been pleased to order that the uniform of the 94th commanded by Major-Gen. Sir Thomas Bradford, should be scarlet, with green facings, and gold lace; and that the uniform of the 95th, commanded by Major-General Sir Colin Halket, should be scarlet with yellow facings and silver lace.


     ORANGE OUTRAGE- We give the following extract of a letter from Enniskillen:
     "ENNISKILLEN, FEB, 12- A desperate outrage, in which it is said that one man has lost his life, occurred here on the evening of the 10th instant, the fair day of Enniskillen. A party of Orangemen, armed, as usual, with guns and bayonets, &c. attached the house of one Burley, a publican, and having forced their way into the outer door, assaulted and wounded every person they found within the house. The persons aggrieved considered it a mockery of justice to lodge informations-whether the crime amounts to misdemeanour or felony, the offenders will be certain of being discharged out of custody on bail, and acquitted if tried."


     TIPPERARY- We have to record one of the most diabolical attempts to murder, which has been committed for a number of years. The intended victim, in this instance, is Michael Hamerton, Esq. of the Co. Tipperary- a truly respectable and influential Gentleman, upwards of 70 years of age, a member of one of the most leading families in the county, and a brother-in-law of Sir William Meadows. Late on Monday night, five villains, with their faces blackened, entered Captain Hamerton's house by the only unbarred window-they placed a sentinel over the butler, who was in bed-the footman they obliged to go up stairs with them. Mr. Hamerton, on hearing the noise below, feeble as he was , took his pistols, and proceeded to the head of the back stairs, where the robbers had arrived before him. He then fired one of his pistols; the fire was returned- the footman was shot in the hip, it is uncertain whether or not by his master's pistol. The villains closed up the old Gentleman-when they overpowered , and literally smashed his skull to pieces with a plough iron. They then dragged him from the landing-place down stairs by the legs, at the bottom of which they left him weltering in his blood. The wounded footman contrived to alarm the neighbourhood, and thus prevented the plunder of the house-the assassins, however, took all the arms possessed by Mr. Hamerton, with them. Fourteen pieces of Mr. Hamerton's skull have been taken away; but the surgeons entertain no hope of saving his valuable life-his dissolution is hourly expected; nor is the footman likely to recover.
     Lord Donoughmore, Colonel Bagwell, and several other neighbouring Magistrates, are actively engaged in investigating this dreadful affair.

     Early on Saturday morning, three men entered the house of John O'Grady, of Rathnasera, near Rathkeale, and inflicted several wounds with a sword on him and his wife. They then went off without committing any other injury. A dispute about a bank note, at the last fair of Ballingarry, is supposed to be the cause of this outrage.

     On Thursday night or early on Friday morning, an attempt was made to burn a range of houses belonging to John Dillon Croker, Esq. of Quartertown near Mallow; they were set fire to in five or six different places, and were it not that fortunately an inhabitant of one of them was sitting up, the whole of them would, in all probability, have been consumed. No doubt can exist that there was a malicious intention to burn these houses, for in the under thatch of several of them ??? was found, obviously placed there for destruction.--Cork Paper.

     On Saturday night, two cows and a heifer, the property of Mathew Linehan, farmer, were houghed on the lands of Mount Nagle, near Mallow, and their tails cut off. On Sunday night, another cow of Linehan's was brutally stabbed. This is the eighth outrage that has been committed on these lands, by the followers of Captain Rock.--Ibid.

     On the night of Friday last, eight sheep, the property of Anthony Ruane, of Rahtkip, within a mile of this town, were inhumanly butchered and left at the door of his cabin. The reason the villains assigned for perpetrating the deed was -that Ruane had not given up Boland's ground.- A notice was subsequently served upon him, stating that if he did not quit, they would treat him in the same manner as his sheep.--Ballina Paper.

     LIMERICK, FEB 14- On Wednesday last, a cabin on the Chief Baron's estate, near Kenry, was burned by some persons unknown; the fire was perceived at night-fall. Major Carthew, of the 39th, with a strong party of his Regiment, the Police from Askeaton, were immediately on the spot, but could not be of any assistance in extinguishing the flames, or tracing the perpetrators.

     Monday night the house of Edward Lynch, near Ballylin, in this County, was attacked by a large party ,who beat him severely, and demanded money to buy powder. A man named Sheehy was shortly after taken, and it is said he is identified as being of the party.

     Yesterday morning the body of Eliza Armstrong, daughter of a labourer in Penny-well, was found in the Canal. The Mayor immediately after held an inquest on the body, when it appeared that she received some strong admonition from her parents for being in company with a married man in the neighbourhood, whose wife was not one of those unsuspicious beings who look with indifference on the alluring and outrivalling charms of youth. The deceased being unable to bear the rebuke, or the more pointed observations of "The Jealous Wife," it is supposed threw herself into the Canal on Sunday last, in a fit of insanity. The Coroner's Jury have not as yet given in their verdict.


     Mr. O'Connell applied to the Court of King's Bench, a few days since, for a Conditional Order for a mandamus against the Corporation of Dublin, on the part of Richard Grace, a Catholic, who required to be admitted to his Freedom of the Corporation, having served seven years apprenticeship to a Free Printer.- Conditional Rule granted.- The Court was excessively crowded during the day.

Galway, Monday, February 23, 1824

(From the Limerick Observer)

     The following communication has been sent to our Office:-

     This evening (Tuesday) the body of Captain Durack, an old and respected citizen of Limerick, was brought for interment to St. John's church-yard in this city. Captain Durack having been a Roman Catholic gentleman, his funeral was attended by the Rev. Mr. McCarthy, Roman Catholic Clergyman of Tarbert, where the Captain lately resided. The Catholic Clergyman proceeded to read the prayers for the dead over the grave of the deceased, when he was interrupted by the Sexton who claimed a monopoly of prayers in that place. The Sexton, however, being very drunk, was not attended to, and the ceremony proceeded. At this time it is stated, Mr. Fitzgibbon, the Vicar of St. John's, arrived, and taking the part of the drunken Sexton, again attempted to interrupt the ceremony. But it appears that the sober opposition of the Reverend Gentleman was as unavailing as the drunken zeal of the Sexton. The ceremony continued. In this utter failure of the arm of the spirit, we are told that the pious divine bethought himself of the arm of the flesh, in the shape of a corporal's guard, which happened to be stationed near, and obeyed his summons. The soldiers advanced with fixed bayonets, & at the pas de charge against the supplicating crowd and their Priest, but the crowd stood peaceable and unmoved.- The Priest continued to address his prayers to the Father of the living and the dead. All were uncovered and in the attitude of supplication. The soldiers halted, paused, and with a feeling that does them honor, wheeled about and retreated from the shameful scene. We were told that they were ordered to clear the yard and drive Priest and people, friends and relatives, from the fresh grave of their deceased kinsman. We hope it is not true. The soldiers, with a better sense of what is due to humanity, disobeyed.

Galway, Thursday, February 26, 1824

[Extract of a Letter from Keady.]

     "There is another sad proof of the bad blood existing between opposite parties in this neighbourhood. A poor old man, 67 years of age, named Pat. Hughes, was shot dead on the spot, his son badly wounded with a sword, and another person named Brannon, also wounded, between six and seven o'clock last night, on the road between John Baird's and the small mill, about a mile and a half from Keady. The shots (and there were several) were fired through the hedge. It appears shots were fired on that night month through the same hedge, at the passengers, one of which took effect on a female named Mallon, who has since been in the Armagh Infirmary. A person saw the flash and heard the report a short time after he had passed on the last night month."
     A Letter from Armagh informs us that "Friday was fair-day in Keady, and the above transaction took place on returning from the fair, and it appears a similar business took place in the monthly fair before, but not so fatal as a woman was then wounded, is not dead. I have inquired into this, and find her still in the Infirmary, badly wounded in the heel."
    Dacre Hamilton, Esq. has been very active in discovering and arresting two persons accused of the murder of Patrick Hughes, &c. An inquest was held on the body before Mr. Michael Magee, Coroner. Verdict of the Jury- "That on the night of the 13th of February, about 8 o'clock, Samuel Evart of Cargellisgarion and Wm. Sling, of Crossusmail, both in the county of Armagh, at Brakly, or some one of them, had a certain gun loaded with powder and ball, did fire against Patrick Hughes, which ball entered at the cheek bone, and passed through the hinder part of the head, on which he instantly died, and that the said Evart and Sling, aided by other persons, with guns, bayonets, and swords, yet unknown, were guilty of wilful murder."
     Much praise is due to Mr. Hamilton for the promptitude which he displayed in arresting the prisoners, and collecting and examining the witnesses. Evart and Sling have been transmitted by him, under an escort of yeomanry to Armagh gaol, where they will, of course, remain till the Assizes. The deceased, as we learn from the tenor of the above letters, was a Roman Catholic- the prisoners are Protestants. Of the evidence detailed on the inquest, or of he commencement of the transaction alluded to, we have heard no further particulars than what was stated above, except that two of the sons of the deceased, who appeared on the inquest, were dreadfully cut with a sword, one of them dangerously-the hat and hand of the other were cut when in the act of saving his head.- Brannan was also severely cut. It did not appear that any resistance was made.--Belfast News.

     The Lord Lieutenant, for the better discovering and bringing to justice the Persons concerned in the dreadful Outrage committed at the house of Michael Hamerton, Esq. of Hamerton, near Clonmel, in the County Tipperary, on the 9th inst. when Mr. Hamerton was barbarously assailed and so dangerously wounded, as to make the hopes of his recovery very doubtful, and his servant also received a gun-shot wound is pleased hereby to offer a Reward of ONE HUNDRED POUNDS, in addition to the Subscriptions entered into by the Magistrates and Gentlemen; also a promise of his Majesty's Free Pardon to any of the Persons concerned therein, except the Person or Persons who committed the Outrage on Mr. Hamerton, and the Person or Persons who actually fired the shots by which Mr. Hamerton's Servant was wounded, who shall within Six calendar Months from the date hereof, discover their Accomplices, so as that they, or any of them, be convicted of the said Outrage.

     This estimable Gentleman is still alive. Since the application of the trepan, by which the brain has been relieved from pressure, he has greatly recovered his recollection, but is unable to speak.- The power of deglutition is in a great degree restored. Two men of the name of James Hogan and James Murphy have since been taken up, and committed for further examination. After a pursuit of two hours and a half, the former was taken by one of the Lisrouagh Police. The coniter of the plough, with which the cowardly and midnight assassins struck Captain Hamerton, was taken from Patrick Purcell, of Donough?fore. We have no doubt but the prompt and decisive exertions which our careful and active Magistrates are making will be crowned with success; and that this murderous gang will be brought, ere  long, to condign punishment.-- Clonmel Herald.



     LIMERICK, FEB 23- Forty men, for offences committed in the west of the country, were sent off from gaol this day, under a strong escort of the Lancers, to be tried at the Rathkeale Sessions, under the Insurrection Act, which commences on Monday next.
     On Thursday night, Major Maxwell apprehended Daniel Callaghan and two other persons, near the wood of Ardglass, charged with an assault on Lord Doneraile's game-keeper, and the robbery of his gun, on the high road near Ballynoran, some weeks since. Callaghan is fully identified.
     A farm house at For??lands, near Charleville, the property of Chidley Coote, Esq. was burned down last night. The former tenant was lately dispossessed.

     DEATH OF MR. HAMERTON- We feel such regret in announcing the death of this Gentleman. He resided 43 years at Hamerton, the mansion of his ancestors, in the retirement of domestic life, and heretofore guarded by the affections of his neighbours, which he never ceased to merit. He expired on Wednesday last.
     A Coroners Inquest sat upon the body, when a verdict was returned of "Wilful Murder by some person or persons unknown."


     This morning, in Mary-street, Newtownsmith, of a lingering illness, which he bore with true christian fortitude and patience, Edward Blake, Esq. for many years one of the Magistrates of this Town, and the first Roman Catholic in Ireland who received the Commission of the Peace- it would be a useless task to enumerate the many virtues- the unbounded hospitality- the pure Christian charity which adorned the life of this excellent man, and rendered him a useful member of society. They will, however, live after him; and the poor, in whom his death will be a severe loss; and the opulent with whom his memory will be cherished, will raise for him in their breast a fir and splendid monument, "ere premius."

    OUTRAGE- On Monday night last, as Patrick M'Can, James Quin, Michael Bradley, and another man, from Swateragh, were returning from the market of Coleraine, with a quantity of barley which they purchased from a neighbouring farmer, they were way-laid in the parish of Aughedoey, about a mile from Garvagh, by a parcel of vagabonds, who cut their sacks, overturned their cars, strewed the barley along the road, and beat them in a most brutal and unmerciful manner. This is the third time men have been assailed in Aughedoey returning with grain, and the only pretended reason assigned is, that these men are raising the markets, because they are not in a league with any others, but giving a fair price for farm produce.- Now it is sincerely hoped, that the Magistrates who reside in the neighbourhood where the deed was committed, and the Gentlemen of the parish, will use every effort in their power to find out and make an example of the individuals concerned in this outrage, and thus suppress a system of iniquity, which, if persisted in, will bring the parish into disgrace, and deprive the farmer of the benefit of a fair market.
