ARREST OF FOURTEEN PERSONS AT ARMAGH, ON A CHARGE OF TREASON!
On Tuesday last, 14 men were taken in the city of Armagh, and committee to the gaol of that county, by Colonel Blacker and a military guard under his command. These men, it is understood, were acting as delegates from several counties in this kingdom, and concerned in some conspiracy, which they were endeavouring to organize and bring into operation against the authority of Government and the peace of the country. We have ascertained their names and places of abode, and they are as follows:
Michael Coffey, Dublin; Edward Cloffery, Fermanagh; Thos. Blake, ditto; John Rice, Monaghan; Peter Rourke, Longford; John Kelly, Tyrone; B. Dougan, Dublin; T. Lamb, Monaghan; P. Reilly, Cavan; John Bradley, Derry; Henry Ceogan, Antrim; Thomas Hughes, Dublin; Thomas M'Geohan, Antrim; Thomas Byrne, Louth. Three of these men were from Dublin, two from Fermanagh, two from Monaghan, two from Antrim, and one respectively from Louth, Longford, Cavan, Derry, and Tyrone. They all seemed respectable from their dress and appearance, and are now confined in the gaol of Armagh. Faulkner's Dublin Journal.
