MURDER IN THE COUNTY
FERMANAGH.—Upon the night of Sunday the 13th inst., WM. CRAIG, the
only son of a respectable farmer, was shot dead through his
sleeping-room window, in the townland of Killyfort, about the hour of
nine o’clock, whilst in the act of undressing for bed. The ball entered
under the left arm and passed through his body. The only reason that
can be assigned was, that Mr. CRAIG was about to occupy the land
himself, and had some of his household furniture brought there the day
before the murder. Two men named LEONARD were seen loitering about the
place, and one of them having a gun, he was repeatedly heard to say he
would deal with any person who would attempt to interfere with the
holding. At an early hour the following morning Constable GIBSON, of
Blacklion station, and his party, together with A. C. KERR, of
Holywell, proceeded to the scene of outrage and had HUGH LEONARD
arrested on suspicion, whom they immediately brought to Holywell
barracks, leaving him in charge of Sub-Constable MALCOLM, waiting the
result of the coroner’s inquest. Next morning he escaped from the
barracks after knocking Sub-Constable MALCOLM down. After a close
pursuit of half a mile he was retaken. LEONARD was then commited to
gaol for the homicide, and also for the assault on Sub-Constable
MALCOLM.—From a Correspondent.
HENRY JOHN PORTER and
Tandragee, April 15, 1845.
Monday, the 14th inst., Mr. HENRY, of Tassagh, one of the coroners for
this county, was through some inadvertance caught by the hand in his
own mill, and but that he had the presence of mind to extricate it
instantly, the consequences would have been serious. Dr. COLVAN of
Armagh, and Surgeon LEEPER of Keady, were immediately called in, and
after consultation decided on amputating three of the fingers. Mr.
HENRY's case was not without danger, but we are happy to learn he is
now doing well.
OF ARMAGH WORK-HOUSE FOR THE WEEK ENDING APRIL 19TH.--Admitted 24;
remaining last week, 457; discharged and died 25. Total 456.
Excellency the Lord Lieutenant has promoted LOUIS ANDERSON, Esq., of
this county, to the rank and pay of Second County Inspector, from the
Friday last between the hours of three and four o'clock in the day, a
fire broke out in the flax mill which is partly worked by steam,
belonging to Mr. John Hutcheson, of Killycairn, near Markethill; and
notwithstanding every exertion the premises were burned to the ground.
The damage done by the accident is estimated at about £600. We
have not heard whether the property was insured or not.
this city, on Tuesday last a fire was discovered in a house in
Irish-street, which owing to its contiguity to flax stores, would have
been very serious, but for the timely aid of Head Constable Lodge and
his party who were promptly in attendance, and who with the
water-engine succeeded in extinguishing this flame.
a meeting of the Commissioners of this city last week, Wm. Paton,
Esq., suggested that the several Insurance Companies who had offices in
Armagh, would contribute to keeping the water-engine in repair, or to
the purchase of another, or an additional hose. It would be very
desirable that Mr. Paton's suggestion be carried into effect
immediately, and we think each office should contribute in proportion
to the business done in the city.
AND ENNISKILLEN RAILWAY.--A petition in favour of this line, lies
for signature at Mr. M'Water's, English-street. A good number have
already affixed their names, and we are sure when our friends reflect
upon the importance of the project to the city and country generally,
that they will embrace the opportunity.
CUMING, Esq., has returned from London, where he had been staying
some time on Railway business.
On Friday last, MERVYN ARCHDALL, Esq., M.P. left Enniskillen for London, to resume his parliamentary duties.
