Arrest Under the Crimes Act.

On Saturday, a young man named Slevin, from Cloghan, King's County, was arrested in Banagher. Slevin was shouting "God save Ireland," &c. When arrested he strove to free himself from the grasp of Constable Greer and SubConstable Rooney. He kicked and strove to free himself. He was thrown on his back and dragged along the street to the barrack, where he was confined till yesterday, when he was brought before the magistrates.
