MURDER.—Last week a dreadful murder was committed in the county of Waterford, on a farm lying between Dungarvan and Youghall [Co. Cork]. A gang of ruffians feloniously broke into the dwelling-house of a poor man, one Daniel Ahern, and cruelly murdered him and his son ; they also threatened the rest of the family with the same fate, if they did not within three days remove from the land. Ahern's having lately taken the farm is the supposed cause of this horrid transaction. A letter from Youghall mentions a report that six men, strongly suspected of the murder, had been apprehended.—Waterford Chronicle.
