On Thursday last, Mr. Bourrien, Officer of Excise, and Mr. James Foster, Preventive Surveyor, with a detachment of the 40th Regiment, stationed in Ennistymon, succeeded in detecting on the lands of Killinaboy, in the west of this County, a large still, &c, at full work. On the same day, the same officers destroyed four disilleries, together with 600 gallons of potale, and 150 gallons of singlings. We have great pleasure in adding that through the exertions of the above active officers, illicit distillation has been almost entirely suppressed in the west of this county, though the military assistance is rather confined.
