IRELAND. COUNTY OF TIL'PERARY.—ONE OF THE MURDERERS OF MR COOPER. It is well known that there were four persons at the murder of Messrs. Cooper and Wayland; that two of them have been convicted; that the third (John Ryan Corbett) died in gaol, that the fourth (Thomas Ryan Mungo) has not been amenable to justice; but it is a fact little known and scarcely credible, that Ryan Mungo, dressed in female attire, attended the funeral of his de- ceased relative and associate in guilt, Ryan Corbett, from the gaol of Clonmel, and that he was actually listening in the same disguise, to the rial of Hickey and Walshe, at the late commission, immediately after which he left the town for some lone retreat. This is a forcible instance of the recklessness and daring temerity of the Irish character.-N, nagh Guardian. COUNTY OF LIMERICK. DARING ATTACK ON THE HOUSE OF THE REV. GEO. FRANKLIN, AT KILDIMo,-A.t an early hour en Tuesday evening last the glebe-house of the Rev. George Franklin, situate at Kildimo, a few miles from this city, was at. tacked by an armed party of men, shortly after Mr Franklin's return from Limerick, where he had been during the day. Eight men, one of whom had his face blackened, entered the kitchen by means of the back door, which was open at the time, and immediately demanded the fire-arms, at the same time attacking an unfortunate horse-rider, who was sitting by the kitchen fire, and struck him several times; but one of the party havjnir rpi-nanijcd .him, interfered, and -1 '•••» «TUi ins master in -» wiio was eating his dinner when the pany entered, sprung from his seat and demanded what they wanted, on which one of the ruf. fians struck hiin with a stone and cut him, though not severely. Three of the party then remained in the kitchen, and the other five attempted to go up stairs, but the women servants endeavoured to prevent them, and the Rev. Mr Franklin, hearing the struggle on the back stairs, went out into the hall to inquire what was the matter, on which the servants exclaimed, The house is full of Whitcboys." Mr Franklin now asked them "what they wanted?" and they immediately replied "fire-arms" and rushed into the hall. Mr Franklin desired them not to he so violent, when one of the ruf- fians rushed forward and struck Mr Franklin (wlio is between 70 and 80 years of age) in the breast, near the shoulder, with a stone, and knocked him against the wall, on which he said, What! will you strike an old man, and a minister of God '?" This appeal had some effect, as the others of the party cried out No, no" and the fellow who struck him retired to the rear. Mr franklin seeing that resistance was impossible, in reply to their repeated demand for arms, informed them that the only arms in the house were a gun belonging to a neighbouring farmer, which his son, the late George Franklin, Esq., had borrowed for protection, and an old cut down musket. Having accompanied Mr Franklin's daughter up stairs, they procured these and an old gnn- stock, with which they departed Whilst this was going on, the servant, bleeding as lie was, attempted to get out to the police-station, which is not more than a quarter of a mile distant, when immediately on getting outside the back-door, lie received a blow of some weapon in the face, and was pushed in by two men who were stationed outside. The village of Old Kildimo is not 50 yards from Mr Franklin's residence, and it is but a few nights since the house of Mr Fosbery, in the same vicinity, was attacked and plundered of arms.—Limerick Standard.
