Dublin, March 14th, 1794.
Accounts were said to have been received yesterday at
the Castle, of a dangerous rising of the lower orders of the people a
few days ago, near Kinsale, in the County of Cork. The magistrates and a
party of the Carlow Militia quartered there attended for the purpose of
dispersing them, but notwithstanding the riot act had been read, and
that orders and entreaties for their immediate dispersion had been
employed on the part of the magistrates, the rioters continued
obstinate, and orders being given to fire, four of the deluded wretches
were killed on the spot, and several others wounded and taken prisoners.
