Superintendent states that Henry Cleary is about 22 years of age 5 feet 8 inches high, says he was born in the County Carlow, was last employed at Holyhead where he has spent 6 years, returned to Ireland about 14 days since for the purpose of seeing friends at Carlow, arrived in Dublin the night before his arrest dropped into the house (No. 3 Lower Bridge Street). William Healy the proprietor of the house and his wife say they do not know what time of the night Cleary came in, however it seems that, before the suspension of the Habeas Corpus six other men strangers from England lodged here, and it would appear as if it is one of their lodging houses. Cleary has the upright bearing and gait of a man, who has seen some military service and may be a deserter.
