(From a Clonmel Paper of Saturday)

     At eight o'clock last night, as Kirwan and Cleary, two mounted Police Constables, from Caher, were on Patrol, they received intelligence that a party of five armed men were on the road in the direction of Woodroof; to this point they proceeded with all possible speed, accompanied by Mr. John Chaytor, who was at the time on is way to Clonmel. They soon came in sight of the five armed men, to whom they called to stop; but who ran off and got over the wall, except one fellow, whom they took, with a gun and bayonet, as he was in the act of climbing over. The rest of the gang ran to a house, where they shut themselves up; but the two Policemen (though encumbered with their prisoner) gallantly followed them, and burst in the door, when an action took place, in which one of the Police (Kirwan) was wounded by a shot through his side; the other (Cleary) was slightly wounded; and, it is said, one of the other party was killed, as he was fired at with deliberate aim, and seen to fall. Before the Police broke into the house, one of the fellows stripped himself and escaped through a window leaving his clothes behind. Mr. Chaytor was present during the transaction, and a ball struck close to one of his feet. It was he who received the first intelligence of the party being on the road before him, on his way to Clonmel, from a poor man whom he met. The intelligence having reached Caher, Mr. Sargent and some of the Police from Caher promptly proceeded to the spot, as did the Clonmel Police with great celerity, at half-past ten last night on receiving the intelligence. They were immediately followed by W. Perry and W. Quinn, jun. Esqrs. from the Grove Hunt party at the Globe. The above is a hasty and very important sketch of this transaction, which reached us just as we were going to press, and till our next we cannot have the particulars; but we have abundant proof that the two Policemen engaged in this transaction evinced extraordinary decision and courage in the discharge of their duty.


The Wren, the Wren, the King of all Birds,
On St. Stephen's day was caught in the furze.

     Mr. Peter Wren, a smart little cockney, with a solitary eye and an Ashantee nose, appeared before the Magistrates of this office on Tuesday morning, to answer a charge of voraciousness alleged against him by an elderly female, who presented a visage of fat, freckled, and greasy, like the first cut of a rich plum pudding. The Magistrate inquired into the circumstances, the lady who passes by the name of Alicia M'Donough, stated that the accused party having taken a fancy to her house, and, as she once thought to her person, had bargained to lodge and board with her, at the rate of ten shillings per week. She, however, never speculated upon having to add more to her usual provender on account of Mr. Wren, who told her he was in a deep decline, and that a basin of gruel was all he would require from sun-rise to sun-set. Strange to tell, however, his fondness for food encreased to an alarming degree, although the air in her neighbourhood was more calculated to injure than increase the appetite of a Hottentot. She, however, struggled on for some time, until Christmas Day, when Mr. Wren, who became most voracious, and even delicate in his taste, having come to his dinner a little flummuxed (to use the lady's classical illustration) he sat down to table with an evident determination to find fault, and displayed it in a most unequivocal manner by basting Mrs. M'Donough with a roast goose, and sousing her with the gravy. This being rather an unpleasant Christmas box, and not being in the habit of bridling her passions, she returned the compliment with the remnant of a ham and its accompaniments,  and after leaving Mr. Wren's face like a sheet of marble paper, she called the watch, who subsequently found the delinquent hid in a little garden at the rere of Mrs. M'Donough's concern. This was the sum and substance of the case, and Mr. Wren having been called on for something in the shape of a defence, told the Magistrate in a tone of voice, half  lisp and half whistle, that he had been most abominably treated by the fair Alicia, who never had any thing in the shape of a delicacy on her table, his common food being steaks, chops, an odd bit of corn beef occasionally varied by fish, and sometimes a morsel of roast pork.
     Magistrate- I wonder you could live in such a miserable establishment. Wren- Shocking, your Vorship, and as long as I lodged with her I never saw a bit of pastry, or a morsel of pickles.
     Magistrate- That was truly provoking.
     Alicia- Why, you scurvy hound, it would take a butcher's stall to bring you to your pickles; do you forget my rice pudding? and please your Worship, the goose he flung in my face was big enough to draw the packet boat. Wren- Big enough, it was by George, and old enough too. Why, your Vorship, it must have been hatched in the day of Cromwell. The very drumstick was thick enough to make a watchman's pole, and the skin-why, it was like the hide of a rhinoceros. Besides, your Vorship, the woman is in love with me.
     Magistrate- O, is that the case. Mrs. M'Donough, what reply do you make to this delicate charge? Alicia-Why, your worship, I've nothing to say to it, but as I was a lone woman, I thought he'd be a comfortable man to have in the house, and if he behaved himself, who knows what might have happened. But now I'm afraid that if I did marry him he'd eat me out of house and home.
     Magistrate- Suppose you give him another trial.- Alicia- (looking fondly toward the culprit, who infused as much affection into his only eye as could be expected)- I always give into good advice.
     Magistrate- What do you say Mr. Wren? Wren- Why, your Vorship, it is not my habit to bear malice, so, if Mrs. Mac. is inclined, I'll give it up.
     Alicia- But I hope, your Worship, you'll bind him over never to throw a goose in my face. Magistrate- Perhaps you might as well take his word, on that subject, for the present.
     The lady having agreed, for peace sake, this amiable pair departed. Mr. Wren, declaring that she should effect some reformation in her family economy and particularly in the articles of pastry and pickles.


     At Ballygallane, in the county Waterfrd, N. Purcell O'Gorman, Esq. Secretary to the Catholics of Ireland, to Mary, only daughter of the late Alexander Power, of Ballygallane, Esq.
     On the 3d inst. in the Church of Whitechurch, in Wexford, by the Rev. R. Boyd, Prebendary of Taghmon, the Rev. E. Bayley, Rector of Haretown, to Ellen, youngest daughter of the Rev. J. Miller, of Kilmokea Glebe.


     It is with much regret, that we have to announce the death of Denis Kavanaugh, Esq. He fell a victim to a fever, on Saturday, the 6th inst. and is much lamented by a numerous circle of friends.
     On Sunday last, in this City, in the 65th year of his age, Mr. Michael Sammon.
     At her lodgings, George's-street, Dublin, Ellen, relict of the late Daniel O'Connell, Esq. of Tralee, and sister of Daniel O'Connell, Esq. by whom she was tenderly beloved. Her manners and disposition were unaffected and retiring, her humanity active, and her charity, as far as her means allowed, unbounded.
     At Limerick, almost suddenly, on Wednesday evening last, the Rev. James Walsh, O.S.A. usually denominated the Abbe Walsh- a Clergyman of the most polished manners, endowed with the talents of a superior order, and perfectly conversant with the modern languages of Europe, having passed a considerable part of his life on various parts of the continent.

     CARLOW, JAN. 4- DEATH FROM WANT- The lifeless body of a wretched man, named Esmonde, who had long been an animated picture of human misery in this place, was discovered yesterday morning lying upon a heap of manure in one of the lanes. The cold of a frosty night had combined with a destitution of food and almost raiment, to extinguish the life of a man whose father had been blessed with affluence.

     THE FIRE IN DUBLIN.- Sir A.B. King, is to present Bills to the Grand Jury for his claims for loss upon the City at large of a malicious fire. The death of Mr. Butler is now added to the list of casualties. The family of poor Kenny are to receive the amount of a liberal subscription.
     After a protracted investigation, at Henry-street Police-Office the occupier of the house at the corner of North Earl-street (Toole) was, on Friday, committed to Newgate, on suspicion of having set fire to his own house, on Sunday se'nnight.

Saturday, January 20, 1827


     At a numerous and most respectable AGGREGATE MEETING of ROMAN CATHOLICS of the COUNTY AND CITY OF KILKENNY, held at St. JAMES'S CHAPEL, on TUESDAY, the 9th JAN., 1827, the following RESOLUTIONS were proposed and unanimously agreed to:-
     Resolved-That Mr. PATRICK COSTELLOE is entitled to the sincere thanks of the Catholics of this County and City, for his uniform zeal and exertions in his Official capacity, and that he be requested to act as Secretary to the Meeting.
     Resolved- That the population of the county of Kilkenny, according to a census taken by order of the Irish House of Lords, in the year 1731, amounted to 42,293 Roman Catholics, and to 6,538 of all other religious persuasions. That, according to a most accurate census recently made by the Roman Catholic Clergy, the Roman Catholics amount to 179,761, while those of all other religious persuasions amount to 7,809. That, thus the Roman Catholics have more than quadrupled their numbers, and that instead of a proportion of 6 1/2 to 1, which they bore to the rest of the population at the former period, (notwithstanding 96 years of persecution, unexampled for its cruelty and atrocity in the history of the world), they now stand in the proportion of 23 to one, of the favoured classes.
     Resolved- That it is the right of every man to adore God according to the dictates of his conscience; that penalties and restrictions imposed upon any class of christians for adhering to religious principles conscientiously adopted, argue an assumption of power in Civil Governments intolerant, unjust and unnatural, and that the enacted penal laws for the purpose of degrading the people of Ireland, a people who have discharged the obligations of citizens and subjects to their fullest extent, are incompatible with those relations of harmony, confidence and general exertion for the public good, without which no Empire can prosper.
     Resolved-That, in justice, to our unhappy country and in furtherance of interests, in which we are vitally concerned, we appeal once more to the British Legislature, against the impolicy of continuing to exclude seven millions of Irishmen from rights to which their title has been never questioned by any wise or liberal statesman, and that we feel the more confident of success, from the accession of strength to our cause in the New Parliament, by the honest exercise of the elective franchise.
     Resolved- That the Petition now read be adopted, as conveying the sentiments of the Inhabitants of this County and City upon the system of misrule pursued towards our distracted and oppressed Country-that it be entrusted, for presentation, to the Right Hon. Lord Clifden, in the Lords, and to Lord Viscount Duncannon in the Commons.
     Resolved- That as the object of Parliamentary representation is to give the people a virtual share in making those laws by which they may be governed, we highly approve of the Resolution of the Catholic Association, henceforth to withhold support from Candidates who join Ministers, in opposing other measures in which we  are vitally concerned, and endeavour to gloss over their duplicity by a solitary vote for Catholic Emancipation.
     Resolved- That we have looked with admiration on the generous and patriotic exertions of the Forty-shilling Freeholders at the late Elections-that we hail, with delight, the result of their efforts, as a sure prelude to the ultimate success of that great cause in which we are engaged.
     Resolved- That we have seen, with indignation, in the reports of the Parliamentary proceedings, a notice of a Motion to disfranchise the Forty-shilling Freeholders, and that we would regard, as one of the most galling re-enactments of the Penal Code, any Law which would curtail the inestimable privilege of the Elective Franchise, especially after its constitutional, manly, and disinterested exercise at the late Election.
     Resolved- That we consider Corporate Monopoly one of the many instruments of Intolerance by which the sources of a Free Government are attempted to be poisoned, and a whole Nation kept in bondage-we will, by every constitutional means, endeavour to destroy so unnatural an abuse.
     Resolved- That the thanks of this meeting are particularly due to the truly Christian Prelates, the Right Rev. The Bishops of Norwich and Rochester, for their Noble and disinterested services in the great cause of Civil and Religious Liberty.
     Resolved, that the Rt. Rev. Dr. Marum and the Clergy of this diocese are entitled to the gratitude of their countrymen, for the promptitude and zeal they displayed in convening the late Parochial Meetings, and taking an accurate Census of the population.
    Resolved- That the thanks of this meeting are eminently due to Mr. Henry Grattan, for the zeal, the promptitude, and the ability with which he seized upon the first opportunity of denouncing the strange omission of Ireland in his Majesty's Speech to Parliament-the unprincipled compromise of Ministers upon the question involving the rights of millions of people, and the peace and security of the British Empire.

     Resolved- That in consideration of the powerful services of our distinguished Country man Daniel O'Connell, Esq. in the cause of his Country, we avail ourselves of this opportunity to express our feelings of unbounded confidence in his integrity and of gratitude for his unwearied exertions in exposing the wrongs of Ireland.
     Resolved- That we also express our admiration of the brilliant and honest services rendered by Messrs. Shell and Lawless, to the same great cause.
     Resolved- That Eneas M'Donnell, for his successful exertions in combating the canting hypocrisy of the Bible Societies, is entitled to our marked approbation.
     Resolved- That our best thanks are due and given to the Hon. Col. Butler, Pierse Somerset Butler, Esq. and the other liberal Protestants who have attended this meeting.
     Resolved- That the Kilkenny Independent, is justly entitled to the warm support of the Catholics of this County and City, for the zeal, the talent and intrepidity, with which it has uniformly advocated the cause of Civil and Religious Liberty.
          Peter Ryan, Chairman
          Pat. Costelloe, Sec.
     Resolved- That we proffer our warmest thanks to Mr. P. Ryan, for his uniform exertions upon all occasions, to promote his country's interests, but more particularly for his efficient, gentlemanly, and dignified demeanour this day in the Chair.
          Wm. F. Finn, Chairman
          Pat. Costelloe, Secretary.

The mortal remains of this venerable Pastor were interred on the 13th inst. in the Chapel of Navan, where a monument is to be erected to his memory.

     George Lysaght, Esq. of the County Clare.

     The following tribute to the memory of the late Rev. Mr. LYNCH, Curate of Castlecomer, came too late for insertion in our last number. We gladly give it a place in our present paper.
     DIED- Of fever, on the 15th inst., in the 34th year of his age, the Rev. EDWARD LYNCH, R.C. Curate of Castlecomer. His life was entirely devoted to religion, and his exertions were unceasing in promoting its interests and enforcing its precepts. For those under his spiritual care, his zeal was ardent, and his affection unbounded. He was filled with grief when he contemplated the ignorance and vice of some of those committed to his charge. He earnestly desired the education of the poor. His heart expanded with joy when he lately saw a prospect of the establishment of a national system of Education. He might with truth say-"The zeal of thy house hath eaten me up." Indeed his extreme sensibility for religion, and his excessive grief when he beheld it opposed by immorality, and its advancement retarded by ignorance, preyed upon his spirit, consumed the very fibre of his heart, and rendered him an unresisting victim of disease. The most striking features of his private character were sincerity, candour, and benevolence. In his friendships no man was ever more steadfast and kind. Once become your friend, no misrepresentation could alienate, no change of fortune diminish, his affection. When the tongue of calumny assailed the character of his friend, he defended him with intrepidity, regardless of the frown or menace of the calumniator. He was straight-forward and candid. It could not be said of him-"Alind in lingus promptum, alind in peetore clausum habere." He spoke with an openness, with a freedom and simplicity, that made it impossible not to believe him an honest and unsophisticated man. Vice, however protected by rank, he reproved with the boldness which truth inspires.- His mind was never embittered by controversial antipathy, or sectarian animosity. It breathed an ardent and universal philanthropy. With the distressed and  afflicted he tenderly sympathised, and their misery he alleviated to the utmost of his power. Indeed, it is supposed, he caught the fever of which he died, in the holy exercise of charity. Having spiritually attended five poor creatures in fever, who constituted the whole family, he remained for a long time in the wretched cabin administering every assistance attention which their destitute state required. During his illness, he manifested the most exemplary piety and resignation. He joined fervently in prayer a few minutes before his dissolution. In him religion has lost a pure and zealous minister, and virtue an enthusiastic votary. In justice to the parishioners of Castlecomer, it should be stated that they entertained for this excellent Clergyman the highest esteem, and at his death, manifested the deepest regret.

     BIRTH- Yesterday, in this City, the lady of Henry Nixon, Jun., Esq. of a daughter


     The patriotic and exemplary Parish Priest of St. John's, the Rev. Mr. MULLINS, made an impressive appeal on Sunday last, to his Parishioners, in support of this laudable measure. After detailing the objects of this national and useful fund, and pressing upon his flock the necessity of its collection, he called their attention to  topic of which he received intelligence a few moments before he entered the Chapel. It was a riot, for which preparations, and those, too, of the most systematic kind, were making for the last week by some unfortunate persons in Maudlin-street, and other more remote inhabitants of the Parish. They were to have met upon that day to decide the matter in dispute, but, owing to the truly christian exhortations of their Pastor and Friend, the Rev. Mr. MULLINS, the savage idea was abandoned. Alas! Irishmen, it is not against each other that your anger should be inflamed or your strength idly exhausted. We forgot to mention also, that the Rev. Mr. MAGEE, with his usual elegance, made a similar appeal at the early Mass, and that the people fully acceded to the wisdom and propriety of an immediate collection of the Rent. We sincerely hope that the great body of the Parochial Clergy will, as they have imitated the Parish of St. John's in convening the Parish Meetings, also follow its example in commencing with spirit the collection of this important fund.


     Begs to return his thanks, to his Friends and the Public, for the liberal support he has met with, since his opening the above Establishment, and hopes to merit a continuance thereof. He is, as usual, supplied with Patent and Proprietary Medicines, form Messrs. WARD and PRINGS, New Medical Hall, Westmorland-St., Dublin, which he disposes of at Dublin Prices.

     The following is an extract of a letter from Liverpool, dated January 11, from a passenger on board the Anacreon, bound to Africa:-' We are back, and may be very thankful for it; as an American packet ,the United States, of 600 tons, and two brigs are lost in Carnarvon Bay, and all drowned. The United States was a fine vessel, nearly new, and was commanded by Captain Wilson, bound from Liverpool for New York.'

     The landed income of the Noblemen and Gentlemen who have already put their names to the Wexford Protestant Petition, in favour of their Roman Catholic brethren, amounts to upwards of one hundred and sixty thousand per annum.
