On Sunday night, the 30th ult., a daring attempt was made to enter an out house of Mr. William Donohoe, shopkeeper, Kinvarra. The parties had succeeded in lifting a large portion of the thatch, and would in all probability have effected an entrance, but fortunately their thievish designs were frustrated by the vigilance of a large bull-dog, whose opportune barking roused the family just in time. The dog gave chase, but owing to a height which he had some difficulty in climbing, he did not succeed in capturing any of them. In the house was stored some wool and a considerable quantity of bacon.
