MEETING AT CASTLEBLAKENEY

By our advertising columns it will be seen that a Meeting of the Barony of Tiaquin has been summoned for Thursday next, to take into consideration the late outrage committed on the estate of Walter Joyce, Esq. in the destruction of his barn. We lament this should have been necessary. We had hoped that, for he credit of their County, the well-disposed in the Barony would have immediately delivered up the perpetrators to the hands of justice; for it is hardly possible to conceive, but that several are privy to the transaction. As, however, they have not done so, it has become necessary for the neighbouring gentlemen to exert themselves in the detection of the offenders. They are coming forward as they ought- their activity will probably be the means of preventing a repetition of such outrages for the future, and of ensuring a continuance of peace to the County.
