A paragraph, extracted from the Clare Journal, has been making the round of Metropolitan papers, with reference to an alleged unprovoked assault of some Claddaghmen on a trawling party from New Quay. Upon the most unquestionable authority we have it that the Claddagh boats were quietly proceeding to their fishing destination when an individual belonging to the trawling party presented a loaded musket at some of the boats when passing and thus provoked the unfortunate rencontre, described in the Clare Journal.
