   A correspondent informs us that a shocking outrage was committed early on the morning of Wednesday the 24th instant, by a number of armed persons, who had assembled near Rossinver, county of Leitrim, between Garrison and Manorhamilton, for the purpose of taking the Salmon going up the river to spawn. The party, it ap- pears, besides being armed with firelocks, had a drum and fife with them. The dreadful result was the killing of ----- M'Nulty, a water-keeper to Mr. Cassidy, to whom the fishery belongs.-- As an inquest has been held, and as some of the magistrates of the neighbourhood have been on the spot, we hope soon to hear of active measures being adopted to discover the villains concerned, and to put down this lawless banditti. This not being a solitary instance of murder on a like occasion, every exertion should be made to prevent persons having arms in their possession who are not legally authorised, a circumstance, we understandt [sic], too common thereabouts. Our correspondent adds, that some of the arms were said to be lent on the above occasion, by persons intrusted with them for far different purposes. It is hoped, should such be the case, that due punishment may await them ; as an armed force of the description above stated, may not always confine their excesses to the shooting of a water-keeper, or the depredation on a salmon fishery.


   A violent assault was committed on Tuesday last, by a man named Monaghan, on Mr. Robert Irvine of Stoneville, near this town. They had some altercation, it appears, about a money transaction, when Monaghan struck Mr. Irvine a violent blow with a spade, and it is supposed, fractured his scull. Mr. Irvine is still living, but in a very precarious state.


   An industrious dealing man named Hunter, known to possess some wealth, was waylaid and attacked on his return from the market of Fivemiletown last week, and fled for refuge to the house of Captain Taylor of Cranbrook. Having deposited what money he had about him with Mr. Taylor, and delayed for some time, until it was supposed the party had retreated, he set out again, escorted down the avenue by young Mr. Taylor, and a servant man, but had not proceeded far when he was again attacked, and abused.-- Examinations have been lodged against a person named Cooke, and others, for the assault.


   On Monday night a Turf-stack belonging to Mr. William Armstrong of Coolcran near Tempo, was set fire to by some vile incendiary, but fortunately discovered before any considerable damage was sustained. Another Turf-stack in the same quarter, was also set on fire and consumed.

   On the same night, several stacks of corn, the property of persons named Arm-strong and M'Manus also residing in the neighbourhood of Tempo, were thrown down and scattered. Similar outrages have been committed in that quarter before, which altogether demand the most strenuous exertions of the magistracy to detect and punish.


   A young man named Gilmartin, a pauper, who was severely affected with epilepsy, was found dead on Saturday last, within a few miles of this town, on the road leading to Belturbet. It is supposed the poor creature perished from cold in a paroxism of the disease.



   On Monday last, a Special Vestry was held in the Church of Rossorry, for the purpose of taking into consideration a composition for tithe. SAMUEL GAMBLE, Esq., being called to the Chair, the Incumbent, the Rev. ALEXANDER AUCHINLECK, produced his books, when an average from November 1814 to November 1821 was readily struck. This sum, amounting to about £260, was proposed by the Incumbent to be taken as a com- position, and was unanimously adopted. The Vestry proposed adding receiver's fees, but this the Incumbent declined, alledging that he had always acted as agent himself, and would continue to do so without fee or reward. The necessary arrangements for applotting, &c. being made, the parties separated equally gratified by the kindness and cordiality which subsisted on the occasion.--The laudable desire of the Rector to meet the wishes of his parishioners, and the disinterestedness of the Chairman in submitting to an additional impost, for the purpose, as he generously stated, of relieving the poorer classes, were highly honourable to both, and obtained the approbation of all present, as they must of every good man in society.
