21Aug1872, A Heavy Blow at Home Rule

BOLTON, Wednesday, August 21st, 1872.
—There are horrid Orange and Popish riots going on in Belfast, both parties tearing each other to pieces, and combining occasionally to fall upon the police. The list of maimed, wounded, and even dead is like civil war. What is to be done with such people? Folks say this to-do will deal a heavy blow at "Home Rule" cries.
