On Monday night, in consequence of intelligence received by Col. Bourke, the Castle Connel Rangers, notwithstanding the severity of the weather, made an incursion into the county of Clare mountains, which were covered with snow, took two of the houghers against whom there are informations, and lodged them safely in our gaol on Tuesday last.
