| ALLEGED MURDER.—On Wednesday last,
the 1st instant, an inquest was held by GEORGE HENRY, Esq., Coroner,
assisted by T. J. TENNYSON, Esq., J. P., on the body of a man named
PHILIP RYAN, who it had been alleged was murdered the night previous,
at a place called Madden, about five miles from this city. The deceased
had formerly been coachman to THOMAS KIDD, Esq., J. P., and was
latterly in the employ of Mr. HUGHES, of Thomas-street. On Tuesday
evening the deceased was driving a car towards Madden, having with him
a Mrs. PELLOT, a servant, who was proceeding to Mrs. HARRIS’S, near
Middletown. On the way they drank whiskey at several public-houses. The
female deposed that, when near Madden, the persons charged with the
murder attempted to take indecent liberties with her, when she jumped
off the car and went to the police-barrack for protection. When the
policemen arrived at the spot they found the body, with a large wound
on the temple, in company with the parties accused. Drs. LEEPER,
COLLINS, and LAVERY held a post mortem examination, and the jury, after
a short consultation, returned a verdict of “ accidental death.”
INFANTICIDE.—A woman named ANNE FERRIGAN was committed to Armagh gaol on Friday last, for the murder of her infant female child, at Ballymartrum, in this county.
