§ MR. FELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called by the police or otherwise to an outrage at Muckenagh on the 27th or 28th ultimo, when a cow was mutilated belonging to one Matt Farrell; whether any motive is assigned by the police for this crime; and whether the perpetrator has been brought to justice.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The police have re ported that on 26th May a portion of the tail of a cow, the property of Matthew Farrell, was maliciously cut off. The motive for the offence could only be a matter of conjecture. The police have not succeeded in discovering the offender.
