Arrest on Suspicion

Our Dungarvan Correspondent writes to us that on Friday evening Acting Constable John Linnehan and Sub-Constable Thomas Wilson, of the Dungarvan Police Station, arrested in the public streets of that town a young man named Michael Crotty, who resides about two miles from Dungarvan.  On his person were found two canisters of gunpowder, a part of a blasting fuse, a drill book, a book of seditious songs, and a small catholic prayer book.

He was brought before the magistrates at petty sessions on Saturday, and information sworn by the two policemen.  He was committed for trial at the next quarter sessions, in default of finding bail, himself in £40, and the sureties in £20 each.
