Hello All

On Monday night last a man named John MAGUIRE effected his escape
from our county prison, He had been tried Dungannon Sessions in
February last, and sentenced to seven years transportation, but evaded
the ends of Justice escaping from the Bridewell in that town, from
which place he proceeded to Portadown where he committed a theft and
was again arrested and convicted at the Armagh Spring Assizes, and
sentenced to 18 months imprisonment. On the above night, however, he
was among the patients in hospital, and having gone to the water
closet, he got outside and on towards an inner wall of the yard, over
which he managed to pass. Up to the present he has kept clear of the
authorities, who are not without hope of detecting him.
