SUICIDE BY A SOLDIER.—CORONER’S INQUEST.— On Wednesday Dr. Kirwan, city coroner, held an inquest at the Royal Barracks, Dublin, on view of the body of corporal Joseph Collins, of the 41st regiment, who came by his death as follows :--It appeared that the deceased was very low spirited latterly. Witness asked deceased several times what was the matter with him, and his reply was “nothing.” Deceased acted as clerk that morning, and appeared as usual ; he was well liked by the men. Sergeant Dawson stated that he came into the room where deceased was about half-past eleven that morning ; he was quite dead. It further appeared that deceased loaded his gun, put the muzzle into his mouth, having a string fastened to the trigger, with which he fired the gun, and blew his brains out. The jury at once found that deceased shot himself while labouring under temporary insanity. Deceased got an excellent character from his officers.
DEATH BY DRINKING WHISKEY. We learn from a correspondent that James Dillon, Esq., of Clara, coroner of the King’s county, held an inquest on Monday last, at Philipstown barracks upon the body of a very fine young man, named Henry Callaghan, a private of the 6th regiment, who came by his death in consequence of having drank a naggin of whiskey in one draught. The evidence of several witnesses went to prove that the deceased was in apparently good health on Sunday, and that he complained of pain in the bowels and chest, in the evening. He retired to his room where he expired after a short illness. John Smith Glover, M.D., surgeon, and John Murtagh, head surgeon of the 6th regiment of foot, held a post mortem examination. The former deposed to the following effect :--Attended deceased. Found no marks of external violence upon the body from an outward view. Could not ascertain the cause of death without making an internal examination of the body, which he did. Upon opening the head found an effusion of lymph upon the surface of the brain ; also effusion in the ventricles of that substance. Opening the chest found adhesion of the lungs to the ribs, the effects of a former inflammation, with an effusion into the cavities of the chest—about a pint of serum of a reddish color. Upon opening the cavity of the abdomen he got a strong smell of whiskey. In making an incision into the stomach, found it to contain about three half-pints of a thick fluid, composed of food in the process of undergoing digestion --mixed with whiskey. Took a spoonful of the fluid and ignited it. It took fire and burnt with a large blaze for some time. The coat of the stomach was slightly inflamed. The right lobe of the liber had a hard cartilaginous feel. More than natural. The remaining portion of that organ was in a congested state. I believe his death was caused by taking a large portion of whiskey in an undiluted state. When asked the question by the coroner, did he consider it necessary for the sake of public justice to have a chemical analysis, he considered not, from the examination made. The regimental surgeon coincided in the above statement of Dr. Glover, but varied in saying that he considered it necessary to have the substance of the stomach analysed, to ascertain whether it contained any noxious substance or not, (which, no doubt, would.) The jury considered not, as from the evidence adduced, that no foul means was resorted to to cause his death. So they came to an unanimous verdict—That Private Henry Callaghan came by his death, upon the afternoon of Sunday, the 24th inst., in Philipstown barracks by drinking a naggin of ardent spirits in said town. That he lingered and died from the effects of such upon said Sunday evening. The proceedings of the inquest commenced about one o’clock on Monday, and did not terminate till about half-past five o’clock the same day.—Evening Packet.

THIRD LECTURE.—Of MANURES, their uses, and composition.
FOURTH LECTURE.—Of the principles of EXHAUSTION, and of ROTATION of CROPS.

A Syllabus of the Lectures will be shortly printed and circulated.
A REMUNERATIVE CROP.—About two acres of beans, grown in a field, the property of ROBERT LOVE, Esq., of Timmakeel, near Portadown, most of which came from a single bean have yielded 84 pods, containing each from three to four beans.
OUTRAGE NEAR CAMLOUGH.—On Sunday morning about eight o’clock, a little girl named Coborn, while proceeding through Derramore wood on an errand for her father, was laid hold of by a ruffian named Thomas Burns, of Carrickcrappin, who forcibly violated her person. Dr. Gray of the dispensary, having been informed of the outrage, immediately proceeded to Camlough police-barrack, and communicated the intelligence to Sergeant Bullick. That very active and intelligent officer forthwith started with his party in pursuit of the criminal ; and, after a tedious quest, Burns was caught by Sub-constable Malcolm, whom the Sergeant had very prudently sent out in coloured clothes, and who deserves the utmost credit for the judicious means he employed to obtain a clue to the hiding-place which the culprit had sought for temporary safety until a convenient opportunity for getting entirely out of the neighbourhood should present itself. Burns has been committed to Armagh gaol for trial at the next assizes.—Newry Telegraph.
Richard Coote Esq., of Bellamont Forest, has reduced the rents on his extensive property from 20 to 25 per cent. Mr. Coote’s continued residence in the midst of his tenantry affords a great source of emolument and employment to the mechanics and labouring class of this locality. We believe Mr. Coote’s estates have been, or are in course of valuation and survey by Mr. Robert Wilson, of Benburb.— In every instance where this gentlemen [sic] has been employed, the most satisfactory results have accrued to both landlord and tenant.—Monaghan Standard.
BANKING IN NEWRY.—We are glad to hear that the Belfast Banking Company purpose immediately to open a Branch in Newry ; and our fellow-townsmen will be gratified to learn that the Directors of that very respectable Company have placed the management of the Newry Bank in the hands of John Boyde, Esq., our Seneschal, Henry Thomson, Esq., of Kildare-st., to be local Director. It will be admitted that a more judicious selection could not have been made, the two Gentlemen appointed having been long engaged in mercantile business in Newry, and possessing an intimate acquaintance with the merchants and shopkeepers of the town.—Newry Telegraph.
DISMISSAL OF FERMANAGH MAGISTRATES.—We learn that, on Tuesday last, Edward Archdall, Esq., D.L. and J.P., and James Lendrum, Esq., D.L., and J.P., received from the proper authorities supersedeases, in consequence of their attendance at the late meeting here on the 12th instant. In the case of Mr. Lendrum there is surely some mistake, as, though in town on the above day, he in no way, that we could observe, identified himself with the proceedings. We only heard the facts as we were going to press, and have therefore no time for such observations as we conceive the cases deserve.—Erne Packet.
DINNER TO SIR J. E. TENNENT.—We understand that Sir J. E. Tennent will be publicly entertained in this town, previous to his departure to London.—Belfast News-Letter.
ULSTER SOCIETY FOR PROMOTING THE EDUCATION OF THE DEAF AND DUMB, AND THE BLIND.
(From our Enniskillen Correspondent.)
THE WEATHER—THE CROPS.—The weather during the past week has been very sultry, and reaping has commenced in this neighbourhood. The wheat crop will not only be great in quantity but of a superior quality and very remunerative to the farmer. All the other grain crops promise equally well.
MYSTERIOUS FATALITY.—We are pained to learn that a gentleman from the neighbourhood of Loughbrickland (Mr. Trevor)—who had been present at the Ball in Newry on Wednesday night—was, on Thursday evening, found dead on the Belfast road, near Loughbrickland. The cause of death has not been ascertained.—Newry Telegraph.— (This lamented gentleman was in conversation with J. T. BELL, jun., of Russell-street, in this city, Esq., on the morning of his decease.—(ED. ARMAGH GUARDIAN.)
ARREST OF MOLLY MAGUIRE’S SONS.—A party of constabulary, accompanied by Christopher Plunket, Esq., R. M., and W. H. Wray, Esq., sub-inspector, succeeded in apprehending three of Molly Maguire’s children on Wednesday night last, at Ballinagleragh mountain, county of Leitrim. The “boys” were committed to the county jail to abide their trial. They are charged with being of an armed party which pulled down the house of a person named Mayne, at Dereloghan, in June last, and at the same time swearing a person who saw them in the act, that he should keep their secret.—Packet.
