THIS WINE is strongly recommended to the public, particularly at the present time for its safe and warming qualities. It is warranted perfectly free from the acidity so much to be condemned in some WINES offered for sale. Diluted with cold water it makes a most grateful and refreshing draught.

ELECTION OF BARONIAL CONSTABLES. - A meeting of magistrates was held to-day in the courthouse, Cavan, for the purpose of electing constables for the baronies of Lower Loughtee and Tullyhunco. Mr. Wm. NIXON MORTON was elected for the former; his securities are Mr. NIXON of Thornhill and Mr. EBBITT of Drumgart. Mr. Wm. CLEMENGER was the only candidate for Tullyhunco; he would have been appointed, but his securities were not in attendance; the election was accordingly postponed, and will probably be held on the 16th inst. , of which due notice will be given. Magistrates present - J. E. VERNON, Esq. , in the chair; Capt. PHILLIPS, Capt. CLIFFORD, J. GUMLEY, Esq. ; Theo. THOMPSON, Esq. ; J. A. NESBITT, Esq. ; and Wm. SMITH, Esq.

MR. KEMP. - We have had a letter from this gentleman, explaining why he dissented from his brother jurors in the case of assault tried at Cavan quarter sessions, the week before last. He conceived that the resistance of the decree was by a 'Molly Maguire' league, and that the men who went to look for their money suffered enough in the expenses they were put to, and in the shame of standing in the dock, even if they had acted somewhat too harshly, without ruining them by finding a verdict of guilty. Mr. Kemp, it seems, did not give his consent to the foreman to sign the issue paper. Hence the unpleasant. mistake.

At the quarter sessions now holding in Limerick, the Assistant-Barrister granted decrees against all parties sued for small debts (even so low as 15x. and 11s. ) holding that the recent "imprisonment for debt act" has only reference to paupers, and that even tradesmen earning weekly wages are liable to arrest for the lowest amount of debt contracted. - Limerick Chronicle.

The Assistant-barrister for Antrim suspended Mr. Jon REA, solicitor, for three years from practicing in his court, for having used "violent and insulting language" to the court.

Lord TALBOT de MALAHIDE died on Monday night, at the advanced age of 88.


The 26th Regiment, stationed at Cork, will proceed early next year to Gibraltar.

The division of the 75th Regiment which embarked at Cork on board the Duke of Argyll, arrived at Calcutta on the 30th August; and the division of the 87th, which embarked at Gravesend on board the Dalhousie, arrived at Calcutta on the same day. The Nile, with another division of the 75th, arrived also at Calcutta on the 18th August.

On the 6th of August the ship Kent arrived at Cape Town with de4tachments on board of 11 officers and 360 men, to join the several regiments serving in the colony, viz---6th Foot, 45th, 73rd, 91st, and 1st Battalion Rifle Brigade.

The Princess Royal will take the detachment of the 54th Regiment at Gravesend, for Antigua, then go round to Sheerness for the 72nd Highlanders, who are bound for the West Indies, and proceed from thence to Queenstown for the draft of the 66th Regiment for Barbadoes (sic).

An eminent banking and army agency firm in the neighbourhood of Trafalgar-square obtained a warrant for the apprehension of the paymaster of one of her Majesty's infantry regiments, who, it is alleged, has absconded with large sums of money entrusted to his charge. The gallant delinquent is represented as a member of the Army and Navy Club, and the proprietor of a handsome rural seat near one of our most flourishing seaport towns. - Weekly chronicle.

Lieutenant-Colonel MILLS, 3rd West India regiment, died at Demerara on the 13th ult. He entered the army as an ensign in the year 1832, but was not engaged at any time in actual warfare.

The last mail from India brought the intelligence of the death of Lieutenant-Colonel M'LEOD, C. B. , 61st Foot. In 1809 he became an ensign in the 61st, in which regiment he had served for forty years. In 1810 and 1811, part of 1812 and part of 1814, he served in the Peninsular war, and was present in the battles of Busaco (sp?) and Fuentos d'Onor in the year 1811, and various operations during the period of his service in the Peninsula. The late Lieutenant-Colonel M'Leod had received the silver medal for Busaco. He died at Peshawur, on the 18th August last, where her Majesty's 1st Regiment is stationed. Early this year the deceased officer was nominated a Companion of the Bath for his service in the late campaign on the Sutlej.

INQUEST. - The Impartial Reporter of yesterday gives the particulars of an inquest held in Enniskillen on Monday, on the body of a corporal of the 57th Regiment named John GRACE, who was killed the preceding night by a young man, a civilian, named M'KEEGAN. The jury returned a verdict of manslaughter against the slayer, and he was committed to gaol.

The sale of several lots of property in Westmeath and the Queen's County, by the creditors of his Grace the Duke of Buckingham, is now confirmed by the legal approval of the title deeds and power of the creditors to sell, and they are now in possession of the purchasers, a pretty good haul being taken from them for legal expenses, interest, &c. &c.

The history of one of the Westmeath lots, Clare Island, the residence of Captain WALKER, proves the hardship sustained by the purchaser, William ORMSBY GORE, Esq. It appears that, many years ago, a large tract of bog, adjoining Claire Island, embracing the Royalty of a great portion of Lough Sheelan, and other advantages, and belonging to the Gore family, was allowed, through the want of vigilance, on the part of the then proprietor and his people, to be surveyed as the Buckingham property, and the original name of the whole changed to Clare Island. Mr. Gore had on the sale last year, to purchase back his own property, and curious enough, it was the only lot for which there was bona fide competition, all other portions being either sold by private contract, or at auction, as good bargains.

To mark the return of this property to the rightful owner, Mr. Gore has changed the names from Clare Island to Gore Port, which name it is to bear in future.

The Longford estate purchased by Luke WHITE, Esq., and the Clare estate by Colonel Henry WHITE, are now in their possession.

The excitement attendant upon all the circumstances connected with the brutal land unparalleled murder at Bermondsey, reached its completion on Tuesday morning, by the execution of George Frederick MANNING and his wife, Maria MANNING, the perpetrators of the deep-laid and horrid deed, on the fallows erected at the top of Horsemonger-lane gaol. To number the thousands upon thousands congregated to witness the death struggles of these unhappy wretches would surpass all accurate calculation. From every building, nook, and space, within sight of the county prison, were to be seen, closely compacted, groups of men, women, and children, stretching with eager eyes to catch a glimpse of that miserable pair whose notorious criminalty (sic) has spread not only thourghout the British empire, but far beyond it; and who were destined to pay the last penalty of the law this morning. To pass away the idle time the mob gave vent to vulgar doggrels (sic), which were caught up by those in the distance, and shouted forth in a sort of monster chorus. The levity of the great mass of the spectators was disgusting beyond all description. As the hour of execution drew nigh, the morbid curiosity of the multitude still further developed itself, by pouring in countless numbers to the scene of ignominious death, without the least probability of having their depraved taste gratified every spot around being for hours preoccupied by one dense, crushing, living mass, of every form and feature. As the clock struck nine, a solemn stillness reigned, each eye strained and gazing upon the platform, on which the murderous couple were so shortly to make their eixit (sic). The prison bell soon put forth its sonorous and startling sounds, which indicated the approach of the sad procession. In a moment the wretched culprits, attended by the Rev. Mr. ROWE, the chaplain of the prison, reading the burial service, emerged from the gloomy building. Manning was so depressed that he was obliged to be assisted up some of the steps which led to the gallows, under the fatal beam of which he was first placed. CALCRAFT, the execution, having pulled the cap over his face, and adjusted the rope, Maria Manning was brought up with some difficulty, and underwent the same preparations. Man and wife shook hands together, and exchanged a few words, the purport of which we are ignorant of. The rev. gentleman continued to read the service for the burial of the dead, when the signal was given, and they were ushered into eternity. – Manning was very subdued, and appeared deeply sorry for his sins, joining fervently n the prayers offered by the rev. chaplain. Maria Manning was much excited, reiterated her innocence, and but little else, and evinced no contrition for the enormity of her crime. She was dressed in black, and wore a black lace veil over her head and face. Both died after a few struggles.

The annals of crime have seldom furnished an instance of a female doomed to die by the hands of the common hangman, who exhibited such ferocity of disposition, such a determination of purpose, and such an obduracy of heart, as Maria Manning. The awful scene of public exhibition being over, the immense crowds gradually dispersed in every possible direction.

Manning slept but little during the night; his rest was repeatedly disturbed, and he got in and out of bed several times.


Names of the gentlemen returned by the judges of assizes to serve the office of high sheriff for the ensuing year: -

A DARING ATTEMPT OF ROBBERTY ON THE BAILIEBOROUGH UNION WORKHOUSE. - On the night of Monday, the 12th instant, between the hours of eleven and twelve o'clock, P.M., a party of six boys (who were turned out of the house by the guardians for their misconduct, and some of them recently come from Cavan gaol) came to the workhouse, and crossed the boundary wall at the male side, and got into the tailor's shop by means of breaking a window, and took therefrom a quantity of clothes, the property of the union; they were heard in the tailor's shop by two paupers - namely, Jas. MARRON and Peter BYRNE, who lay in the room over it, and immediately alarmed the master, who turned out the officers, assisted by the bakers, and arrested the party in a field near the workhouse, making their escape with the union clothes. They were given in charge to the Bailieboro' constabulary, and informations taken against them, and fully committed to stand their trial at Bailieboro quarter sessions.

MURDER. - We are informed that on the evening of Thursday last as a poor man named WYNNE was cutting rods in the town land of Boho, in this county, a person named CUFFY (sic) came up and bade him desist. He refused, and the other threw stones at him, one of which struck him on the head close to the ear. Wynne went home, and the next morning was dead. A coroner's inquest was held on the body and a verdict of murder returned against DUFFY. - Impartial Reporter.


September 9, at Green Park, Bath, Jane, the beloved wife of Lieutenant-General Alexander ARMSTRONG, late of Woodville, Killester, county Dublin.

September 9, at Hendrick, aged 76 years, Mary, relict of Mr. Thomas BEGG, formerly a most extensive trader in North Kin-street, Dublin.

On the 3rd instant, in the parish of Templeport, in this diocese the Rev. Philip M'GAURAN, in the 38th year of his age, and tenth of his sacred ministry. Never was there a man whose soul was more replete with those graces, which are calculated to win the human heart, than this exemplary ecclesiastic. An affability of manner, united with a stern honestly of purpose, an ardency of attachment to all he knew, gained for him a host of admirers. His ardent piety, his burning zeal, earned for him the affection of his flock. During his college course he was a distinguished student, and on the mission, he was looked upon as a divine, as pre-eminent for piety and kind-heartedness as he was distinguished for theological and literary acquirements. He laboured assiduously in the confessional, where he sat to rebuke vice, assuage grief, and console misery. He preached, he instructed without intermission, and many who were enraptured by his eloquence, will never forget the zeal with which he threw his sanguine spirit into the execution of his mission. He constantly exhorted his flock to have faith, hope, and charity, acts which wing their way above all created things to settle on God, the bands that unite us to God here, to be transformed almost until him hereafter. It was the constant study of his life to withdraw himself from those enjoyments that are shorter than eternity, or less than the fruition of the great God himself. The afflicted writer of this unavailing tribute to the memory of his friend, can but faintly tell his worth, and but dimly shadow forth his own heartfelt sorrow. His demise has caused deep and intense sorrow throughout the diocese of Kilmore, but he has gone to receive the reward due to a life devoted to the sacred ministers of religion. The large number of all classes which composed the melancholy cortege to the place of interment, amply testified how all parties deplored his loss, and appreciated his worth.

November 23, 1849


It is with feelings of no ordinary pleasure, we lay before our readers a brief resume, of the career and professional trophies of our accomplished and graceful countrywoman - Miss C. HAYES: the more so, as we feel deeply the honour and reputation of our country is bound up with the achievements and fame of her children. The continent of Europe, has been more than once before, the glorious theatre of their distinguished action; and, it is to be hoped, that when the bands and influence of civilization and social progress draw us closer together, that Ireland will feel still more the humanizing influence of amity and international peace. Miss Hayes is a native of Limerick, and from the earliest age exhibited marked indications of musical genius. She commenced her musical studies in Dublin, under Signor Sapio; from thence she went to Paris, to receive instructions from Garcia, the brother of Viardot and Malbran, and teacher of Jenny Lind; on the 10th of May, 1845, she made her debut art Marseilles, as Elvira in Bellini's opera of Puritani. Upon this occasion she achieved a great reputation, and refused several more attracting offers from the leaders of the Italian opera in Paris, but declined all engagements, and returned to Milan to continue her studies under Ronconi. Struck by her brilliant performance at Milan, Ricordi, the manager of the La Scala and Vienna theatres, gave her an immediate engagement. The subsequent career of Catherina Hayez (as the Italians call her,) was most splendid. She performed at Venice, Vienna, Genoa, Florence, and all the lading cities of Italy, being every where enthusiastically received; at Florence she was paid the most distinguished compliments; the British minister there, Sir George Hamilton, and his accomplished sister, lady Caroline, vied with each in their tributes of homage to her genius. At a banquet in Florence, the British ambassador did her the honour of conducting her to the banqueting-chamber, whilst on his other arm leaned the Duchess of Castiglioni, sister of Corsini, the prime minister. Thus we have seen foreign nations paying the meed of eminent respect to this now famous prima donna. The reputation so nobly achieved abroad, has been brilliantly sustained at home. She has quite enchanted the Dublin audiences, who have thronged in vast numbers to witness the performance of their gifted countrywoman, - nobly sustained by the brilliancy, execution, and ready aid of Mr. Sims REEVES. She sang some of her most famous passages, and touched the deep emotions of the Irish heart, by her delightful singing in some native melodies - especially, "The Return to Erin," which was most enthusiastically encored; she has since sung at Limerick, her native city, and we perceive by a private letter that her reception in that city, was of the most warm and rapturous kind. It is thus we like to record the name and glories of Irish genius, because, it is only by the exercise of the civilizing agencies of talent and refinement, that we can expect Irishmen to be respected, and their country honoured amongst the nations. The Milan papers speak in the most eulogistic terms of her vocal powers; and, indeed, the whole continental press is unanimous in giving her the laurel-wreathe of professional eminence; she is by some preferred to Jenny Lind; however, that is a point upon which there will always be much difference of opinion. The Milan paper, La Meda, from whence we quote, in speaking of the musical powers of Catherina Hayez, says, "the voice of Miss Hayes is a soprano of great power; possessing a pathos, which not only delights, but goes at once to the very heart; her style is the purest Italian; those who have seen her, augur for her a glorious destiny; and when France and England have the opportunity of introducing this finished artiste, we shall not then wonder at hearing the theatrical press of Europe, registering La Hayez amongst the most celebrated vocalists that have appeared." So far the Milan Gazette, and the lovers of music in Ireland may now say, "Thou has won me from the daughters of my sunny Italy."

PROFESSIONAL COURTESY.- At the conclusion of the late Kilkenny sessions the assistant-barrister, Mr. Nicholas PURCELL O'GORMAN, made some strong observations upon the indecorous conduct of the attorneys of his court, "who did nothing," he said, "but sneer at him, and endeavour to cast ridicule upon him. But I'll bear it no longer," exclaimed the enraged judge, "as this very night I shall write off and insist upon being transferred to another county." "Does your worship think," said Mr. Michael HYLAND, solicitor, addressing himself to the irate law dispenser, "that a memorial signed by all the attorneys of the court, backing your application, would be of any assistance in obtaining your object?" A look of peculiar ferocity was the only response to the generous interrogatory.
