The above meeting, pursuant to notice, took place last Monday evening, and far surpassed our expectations in point of numbers assembled, and the amount collected. At seven o'clock the theatre was crowded, and Charles Doherty, Esq. was called to the chair, and addressed the meeting at considerable length, and with political fertility of thought which would do honor to the leading agitators of the 19th century. His speech embraced master strokes, which would stagger the man of monopoly, though supported by the crown, and as strong as the pillars of Hercules. The Rev. James Dunphy, R.C. rector of the city, who so generously promoted the success of Ireland's Monday, by his princely contribution and great influence, handed in the sum of 5l. from a friend to Repeal. Dr. De Wolfe, a native of Nova Scotia, paying 1l. 5s, became a member of the Repeal Association. The Subscription of Denis Burke, employed as stoker or fireman in a steam-boat, was announced to be 5l. The amount collected last Monday evening was 75l., which added to the sum of the previous evening, brought the gross proceeds of the simultaneous meeting up to 1,060 dollars, which being announced from the chair, created several peals of Repeal thunder, showing how loud the public voice was calling for justice for Ireland. Such a sum was never before collected at one Repeal meeting at this side of the Atlantic, a fact which proves that the friends of Ireland in this city know how to organise a meeting better than their fellow-countrymen in the colonies, or their fellow-labourers in the United States. The thanks of the meeting having been given to Mr. Doherty, for his exemplary conduct in the chair, the meeting adjourned with several rounds of cheers for the leading agitators of the day St. John Liberator. The Repealers of this city (St. John) contributed more at the simultaneous meeting than all British America on the same occasion. The laurels of the patriotism are blooming on their brow, and to them belongs the proud boast of having collected more at one meeting than has ever been received in one day, in any part of the New World.

From the Ennis Chronicle, Ennis, Co. Clare, Ireland 26 September 1799:

We whose Names are hereunto subscribed, deeply interested in the peace and prosperity of the Co. of Clare and Kingdom at large, APPROVE of the Measure of a LEGISLATIVE UNION with Great Britain on equal and liberal principles, and on a sense of mutual interests and affection, as the only means of tranquilizing this County, and abolishing those religious distinctions which have unhappily distracted this Kingdom.

Volume 69 Price 5 Pence

CORK: February 27-Last night, a daring attack was made on the house of William MARTIN, esq. of Johnstown, near Glenville. At about nine o'clock Mr. MARTIN was alarmed by a noise on the roof of the house immediately over the water-closet. At the same time the kitchen door was assailed with a sledge, when Mr. MARTIN threw up the sash of a lobby window, and fired at the gang, one of whom ran round to the front of the house, another attack having been commenced on the hall door, exclaiming he was shot. Mr. MARTIN also crossed at the same time from the back to the front, and having thrown up one of the sashes, he discharged a blunderbuss, which was heavily loaded with ore from the Ringabella Mines, when one of the ruffians fell through a hedge of box, which ranged with the house. The party immediately fled in all directions, and Mr. MARTIN, with two women of the name of SHINE and HURLEY, who were in the house, sallied out, but the wounded men had escaped; carried off, doubtless, by their daring associates. The communication which informs us of the above particulars also states, and the authority is too respectable to permit us to doubt the fact, that one of the parties which were out on Friday night, amounting to one hundred men, attacked the New Inn on the Ballyhooly-road, fourteen of whom entered the house, and went over it from top to bottom, in search of arms. They were armed with muskets and bayonets and their Leader appeared to be a respectable man. Informations of this outrage have been sworn before Robert COURTENAY, Esq., of Ballyedmond.

In other parts of the country the same lawless spirit is in full activity. At the early hour of eight o'clock on Tuesday night, a larg party attacked the house of James FOLEY, on the lands of Carrageen, the property of A.G. CREAGH, Esq., and set fire to his house and barn in three different parts, and cut and mangled two fine cows, for no cause, but that FOLEY took the land from Mr. CREAGH, about two years ago, and was a sober, well-conducted man. Carrageen is not more than one mile from Doneraile.

We copy the following from the Advertiser of this morning: "We learned yesterday evening that a considerable quantity of arms which had been plundered from a wreck near the old head of Kinsale, had fallen into the hands of the peasantry of that neighbourhood. William Preston WHITE, Esq. has, we are happy to say, obtained information of importance respecting some of those individuals.-Thirteen of them have engaged in a conspiracy of a Whiteboy character, but of a more atrocious tendency than has hitherto belonged to the the generality of their outrages. Mr. William Preston WHITE would himself have immediately proceeded, with the energy which has always distinguished him, in pursuit of these miscreants, were it not that having perfect reliance on the efficacy of the Soverign of Kinsale, he transmitted the warrant to that Magistrate with instructions how to act."

The farm-house, out-offices, &c (the best in that neighbourhood) of Ballyburden, near Ballincollig, the property of Mr. HAWKEN, were set fire to last night by Whiteboys, and the entire totally consumed. We have just heard from respectable authority, that the dwelling-house, corn &c, of Mr. Charles CROFTS, of Ballyhay, near Charleville, were totally consumed last night, supposed to be the act of the deluded insurgents that still annoy that neighbourhood.
