The following are the Names of the Twenty one persons who have been elected by ballot, to form the New Roman Catholic Committee. The number of suffrages given to each person, is affixed to his name. If a Majority of votes be admitted as a criterion by which to judge of the popularity of the elected candidates, or of the quantum of confidence which the electors feel inclined to repose in the respective objects of their choice--it would almost seem that the popularity of Mr. O'CONNELL is in the wane. It will appear that his Name is not the third or fourth, or even the fifth, upon this list:--

Richard SHEIL, Esq., 317; Lord KILLEEN, 313; Sir John BURKE, Bart., 313; Captain BRYAN, 312; Nicholas MAHON, Esq., 312; Dan. O'CONNELL, Esq., 311; Sir T. ESMONDE, Bart., 309; Hugh O'CONNOR, Esq., 304; Hon. Mr. PRESTON, 299; William MURPHY, Esq., 209; Lord GORMANSTOWN, 283; O'CONNOR, Don, 282; N. P. O'GORMAN, Esq. 281; H. LAMBERT, Esq. 170; Steph.

William BELLEW, Esq., an eminent Roman Catholic Barrister, and a Gentleman of property and character, and of the most respectable family connections, has presumed to offer an honest and unbought opinion, to his Catholic countrymen. He cautions them against a revival of the Catholic Association. His sensible and praiseworthy advice has called forth the ire of Mr. O'CONNELL, which this learned Gentleman has lavished very unsparingly, in his usual stile (sic), in another exhortation to "his fellow Catholics, and his fellow Slaves." .....

The Honourable Henry CORRY, second son of the Earl of Belmore, was on Monday last, returned, without opposition, to represent the county Tyrone in Parliament, in the room of the late Right Hon. Sir John STEWART. In the evening about 120 of the Gentry and respectable Persons of that county, Friends of Mr. CORRY, dined together, at GRIER's hotel, in Omagh.

SHOCKING MURDER--A few days since, three cows and a calf belonging to Mr. James BROWN, of Tallaght, which were grazing on the lands of Whitestown, near Saggare, were haughed, and a poor man, named Michael OUGAN, who was in care of them, was found lying in a ditch near the place, dreadfully murdered. He had been shot through the neck, his skull fractured in two places, his eyes beaten in, his arms broken, and he was then thrown into a ditch. The only reason assigned for this inhuman deed is, that Mr. DANIEL, of Mary-street, some time since took a lease of the commons of Saggard, which he enclosed and part of which had been taken from him by Mr. BROWNE. At a late hour last night several persons were brought to the Head Police Office, on suspicion of having been concerned in this offence.--Dublin Paper.

July 26, 1825


Before the Right Hon. Lord Norbury.

His Lordship entered the crown court at 12 o'clock, when the commission was read, the panel called over, and the following gentlemen sworn on the Grand Jury:--

Henry BRUEN, Esq., M.P., Foreman.

William BROWNE, Esq., John S. ROCHFORE, Esq., Sir Charles BURTON, Bart., Robert DOYNE, Esq., Wm. F. BURTON, Esq., John D. DUCKETT, Esq., Wm. R. STEWART, Esq., James BUTLER (Broomville) Esq., John F. CORNWALL, Esq., John WHEALAN, Esq., Walter NEWTON, Esq., John ALEXANDER, Esq., Thomas ELLIOT, Esq., Henry FALKINER, Esq., John HUMFRY, Esq., Robert EUSTACE, Esq., Gilbert P. RUDKIN, Esq., Walter BLACKNEY, Esq., Pilsworth WHELAN, Esq., John WATSON, Esq., Thomas WATSON, Esq., and Adam B. FULTUS, Esq.

His Lordship addressed several Gentlemen of the bar as they entered the court, Messrs. GRATTAN, PLUNKETT, DARCY, BETHEL, &c.

It was remarked that his Lordship looked extremely well--he was evidently in good spirits and wore a new wig--upon which Mr. BETHEL observed that he had a lease of his life with a clause of "toties quoties."

Bridget MEANY was indicted for feloniously, wilfully and maliciously setting fire to a stable, the property of Margaret CAHIL of Madlin, parish of Ballyknocken, on the night of the 7th of March last.--This was a crown prosecution and altho' it occupied the Court for a considerable time, the facts lay within the compass of a nutshell.

The prosecutrix swore that her house was set fire to on the night stated in the indictment. That her husband (who was bed ridden) and her children were asleep at the time; it was between nine and ten o'clock at night; that Michael MAHER, son of Darby MAHER, of Kilethrope, called up the prosecutrix, and apprised her of her danger; that prosecutrix immediately ran out and saw the prisoner running from the house; she next morning lodged informations before Mr. STEWART of Leighlinbridge, and had the prisoner arrested on Easter Tuesday. These facts were elicited by the Court....

The prisoner, not having any Counsel employed, had recourse to criminating prosecutrix with having seduced her to Dublin, where she was made an instrument of gain to the prosecutrix in a course of prostitution and infamy too shocking to dwell here upon. The prosecutrix afterwards finding prisoner's charms no long marketable, brought her thence to this country, where through similar scenes of turpitude, she ultimately became unhealthy and debased; that she lingered under the afflictions of want and disease in the house of the prosecutrix, where she lay concealed for eleven months, and that when her friends inquired for her, prosecutrix would lock her up in a chest !--[Here an indescribable scene of confusion, crimination, and recrimination arose between the two women,] prosecutrix said " you had the run of the house, you varmint, (laughing), the dock is too good for you, you robbing thief....The likes of me, set you up, you baggage," (continued laughter) "yes, the things were mine, and you lit the only bit of a fire you had to burn the house inside, and signs by it, the neighbours said so, and you threw you water upon it to quench it, and it's all this I am in Jail for to-day, but the old hay will have you yet." (Shouts of Laughter.) Prisoner not guilty.--Discharged.



About six o'clock, the Hon Baron PENNEFATHER arrived in town, and shortly after went into Court, and opened his Commission, dated 15th July 1825. The following Grand Jury were sworn.--

Right Hon. Wm. V. FITZGERALD, Foreman.

Right Hon. J. O. VANDELEUR, Sir A. FITZGERALD, Sir Hugh D. MASSAY, Lucias O'BRIEN, Thomas BROWNE, Wm. N. MACNAMARA, Andrew FINECANE, Bindon SCOTT, Robert WESTROPP, Henry BUTLER, George O'CALLAGHAN, Bindon BLOOD, Thomas STUDDERT, Simon George PUTLON, Francis MACNAMARA, Francis GORE, jun., Charles CREAGH, George STUDDERT, Thomas MARONY, Richard CREAGH, Thomas SPAIGHT and Hugh SINGLETON, Esqrs.

Immediately after which his Lordship addressed them nearly as follows:--

GENTLEMEN OF THE GRAND JURY.--Upon looking over the Calendar of prisoners for trial, I find it does not contain any crime to require any particular observation from will not find any Bill, but where evidence is produced to you, that would if uncontradicted, lead to a conviction....I do not think it necessary to detain you any longer. The Court will sit every morning at nine o'clock, and I hope you will meet at an earlier hour to enable me to dispose of the public business.
