In Enniskillen, aged 44 years, Jane, the beloved wife of Wm. Trimble, Esq., Proprietor and Editor of the Fermanagh Reporter. Throughout life her acts of charity to the needy and Christian kindness to all, endeared her to an extensive circle of friends and acquaintances. In her character shone those superior graces which adorn the sex—she was kind, humane, tender, affectionate, and her loss is a source of sorrow to many who experienced her maternal care. In the more important relations of life she acquitted herself honourably— attached, as a wife ; loving, as a parent ; sincere, as a friend. During the last two hears her health was delicate : and on Saturday morning at one o’clock, that God whom she served so steadily on earth, called her to himself in heaven. Released from pain, she has entered upon an everlasting reward, and happy is she that believed.
On Friday the 8th instant, another inquest was held by G. HENRY, Esq., Coroner, on the body of ELLEN HOGAN, wife of ----- HOGAN of Ballytruddan, who died suddenly the evening before. Some malicious persons had created a rumour of foul play towards the unfortunate deceased, and FRANCIS STRINGER, Esq., landlord of the soil, Mr. KELLY, Sub-Inspector of Police, JOHN QUIN, Esq., Solicitor, and Dr. COLVAN attended the inquest, also Dr. CLARKE of Blackwatertown Dispensary. After a full and patient investigation of all the circumstances, and a searching post mortem examination by the Medical gentlemen, it was found that the poor woman who had been for some time delicate, had died of conjestion of the brain, and by no violence whatever.

LISBURN.—On Thursday last, a man had a narrow escape for his life at the Lisburn station of the Railway. He had slipped round unobserved to the back of the last carriage of the train, with the view of getting on the train without payment. The bell was about to be rung, when, fortunately, a person standing on the platform perceived him, and saw that he was falling, and instantly gave the alarm. Happily the signal to start had not been given, for the man, who turned out to be a sailor in drink, was lying across the rail, right before the wheel. In another moment he might have been gone over. He was taken prisoner, and conveyed to the Police-office. It should be known that, for such an offence as travelling without a ticket, or trespassing on the railway, there is a fine of £2, or imprisonment. It is the extreme temerity to be venturesome with railway trains or movements.—Belfast News Letter.
FATAL CASUALTY YESTERDAY, ON THE ULSTER RAILWAY.—We have to announce to day, a very melancholy accident on the line of our Railway. It is satisfactory, however, to know that the distressing occurrence was owing to no neglect or fault of any party. On the side of the Railway, beside Farm Hill, not far from Dunmurry [Co Antrim], in the direction of Belfast, slips of the bank frequently took place, and, in consequence, workmen have latterly been employed in removing the projecting parts of the bank altoghether. One of these men, named M’Cleery, we believe, a servant of Mr. J. Carmichael, Dunmurry, was employed in this work and had charge of his master’s horse and cart. At the 9 o’clock down train, yesterday morning, approached the place where the work is going on, the horse made a start, and the man held him firmly to prevent his moving. Unhappily the halter broke, as we are told, and poor M’Cleery stumbled just as the engine was forward. He was struck by it or one of the carriages, and was so dreadfully injured that he survived but a few minutes. We believe he was steady, industrious man, and has left a wife and four children. While the accident so awfully deprived him of his life, is greatly to be deplored, the public must feel gratified that our Railway management is not thereby implicated.—Ibid.
STATE OF THE COUNTRY.
At nine o’clock on the morning of the 2d instant three men in disguise, and armed with bludgeons, entered the house of a man named James Conlan, at Sheaskin, near Scotstown, and himself being from home, they warned his wife, that except he gave up a farm—which he was held for three years—before nine years, they will return and butcher him. Prior to departing, they took a terrier of Conlan’s, and on his wife remonstrating with them, and endeavouring to prevent their bringing it, they kicked and knocked her down, leaving her in a state of unconsciousness. The three were unknown to her.—Ibid.
MOLLY MAGUIRE NOTICE.
On Saturday night se’nnight a notice, of which the following is a copy, was found posted on the dwelling-house of a man named Pat M’Kenna, near Emyvale:--
“ Mrs. Maguire will pay a visit to Patrick M’Kenna, Oct. 1st, to strive to make him quit his neighbours, and let them alone, and if he does not let them alone, he will be glad to do it, and if fair does not do we will try foul, her sons to be prepared, and her sons and cousins too, and gaily they will march along not afraid of any crew.”—Ibid.
TWO MOLLY MAGUIRES CAPTURED.
On the night of the 6th instant two men fired shots into the house of Mr. Beggen, of Bohora, near Killishandra, but with-out effect. Mr. Beggen and his servant gave immediate pursuit, and, after a long race, captured the fellows, who are now in the custody of the police. Mr. Beggen is a Protestant and an Orangeman.—Ibid.
