April 22 1834

November 25 1834


A very aggravated case of this description occurred on the evening of Thursday last, within a short distance of this town. As two men named JOHN CLARKE and ROBERT MITCHELL, were going along the road towards Milltown, they were overtaken at the School House, by three persons, who, without the slightest provocation, commenced beating the unfortunate men in the most brutal and savage manner, and were it not for the praiseworthy and spirited exertions of the Master of the School, MR. McCARTER, who interfered between the cowardly assailants and their unoffending victims, it is more than probable that murder would have been committed. As it is, one of the men, John Clarke, is so dreadfully beaten, that he has not been as yet able to come to Strabane to lodge information against the persons who beat him; in fact, his life is considered in imminent danger.

Three men (ROBERT McCARBERRY, JAS. COYLE and JAMES KIRKWOOD) were arrested by the Constabulary, on Sunday evening, under a warrant granted by SIR J. J. BURGOYNE, on the information of Robert Mitchell. This man, whose appearance fully shewed the severe treatment he experienced, as his hands, arms and head were dreadfully cut, and bruised, swore in the most positive and direct manner, to the three prisoners, as having been the persons who assaulted him. They have been remanded, until the surgeon’s report of the extent of the injuries inflicted on Clarke, is received
