no power going to plugs and lights

hi guys i got rid of a wall, there were 2 plugs, one plug was control by a switch and the other well it was just a plug. now there was a cable going from one receptacle to the other(i am not an electrician ). so i pulled both wires up to the attic and merret them and put them in a box.

my problem is that now i cannt get power to the other plugs and another lights (there is one fuse controlling 4 plugs and 2 lights) fuse is fine i checked it out.

How many 2-conductor cables and how many 3-conductor cables (if any) at the switched receptacle.

Was there a single 2-conductor cable from the switched receptacle to the un-switched receptacle?

How many cables at the un-switched receptacle? Were they 2-conductor cables? Any 3-conductor cables at the un-switched receptacle?

How many cables at the switch box and were any 3-conductor cables?

Were there two or more white wires wire nutted together in the switch box?

What color wires connected to the switch.

Your post is not real clear, but it sounds like you disconnected a cable that was feeding the now non-working receptacles and lights.
