The principal facta ma^ be coNe-::ted froth the following e^itracti frdm tbe Galway, Tuam, and Muyo Papers' - GALWaY, march 9. On Su'n4ay,night lai^, as Mr. Burke, accompanied by his servant, arrived,.at tits gale-house, he deniauded ,entrance, .but to his astonishment, inttead of obtaining it, as lie expedted, there were two shots fired'at him fruin a vail opposite the gate. Mr. Burke fired bis pisoi in tbe direction from whence the shots caAiej and exclaimed, *' Murder'." Five other shots were likewise fired -at \i\ai, and Mr. Burke directed his servant to fire, who immediately conn-plied. Mr. Burhe at this moment had the presence of mind to call oat, in a determined Aianoer, with a view of irtlimir dating them, " t^me oh, dragoims, and seize the villains." This is supposed lo have the desired efierl of restraining them, as no doulit is entertained, if this subterfuge was not resorted to, the assassius would most probably advance and accomplish their nefarious inlenlion. The gale-keeper, in his depositions taken by that vigilant Magistrate, >imes Daly, tcq. Dunsandle, admitted that he distinctly heard the words expressed by Mr. Burkej aud the shots; but that the gale was not opened until the following morning, when his master's hat was found close lo it. It is, supposed the gale-keeper was not implicated in the transaction; but being so impre.e ou their gaard, while he resolutely galloped up to the crowd. Judging,fVom their position, that they were fur battle; he began in the mildest manner tu reason with Ibedk. They were deaf lo bis entreaties and I'pgardlesti of his sayings,'and seemed 10 lait{>bat his absurdity, in thinking that i9 or 10 men woiild coaqoer so many ; upon which he rode back to meet his party and prepare for the op-pusitiouisis, as they might be coofidei.t of an attack, al the same time lellibg the prisoner if he attempted to escape ibat he wuuhlv that moment be shot. > Mr. Blake fearing the soldiers would be surrounded, ordered theni lo fire, thinking it wuuld he (� means of detering them, but it seemed only to eiinspera^ the Ribbonmen, wlio steOieU to t�! chising uii il^e army nio?4t,^|^mure; Mir.
