BELFAST, FEB. 15.—On Wednesday evening last, a party of five persons got over the wall into the new burying ground behind the Poor house, with a view, as is supposed, to raise dead bodies. Two sentinels had been placed on the ground since Surgeon Baillie’s interment ; and, on the five men approaching, they were challenged, and instantly fled. One of them, however, turned round and fired a loaded gun or pistol at the soldiers, which fortunately did not take effect, and one of the sentinels returned the fire. Four of the men were pursued a considerable distance, but escaped. The guard at the barracks being alarmed at hearing the shots, a file of men, with a corporal, went to the place, and caught one man coming over the wall of the burying ground, with a lantern belonging to the sentinels in his possession. He was taken to the Police-office ; his name is George Stephenson.— After undergoing an examination, he was fully committed to Carrickfergus gaol for trial at the next Assizes.
