A curious escapade has been committed by same Irish Fenians,

—as it is aupposed,—at Passage, near Cork. On Wednesday night, a Norwegian ship, which was lying at Passage West Docks, Cork, for repairs, was boarded by forty men in six boats, who robbed the ship of forty-two rather primitive muskets, within twenty-five yards of the Passage patrol. Wax arrests on suspicion have been made. With forty-two-primitive muskets, no doubt the Fenians think that they can make war.
