The inquest on the body of Margaret KEOGH, killed by being fired at out of a window at the late election in Cork, terminated on Wednesday. After more than two hours' deliberation the jury returned a verdict of manslaughter against Henry Bible, and Campbell, the policeman.

Thomas Francis MEAGHER had made a final declaration of his intention of becoming a citizen of the United States. He declared "to renounce forever all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, or sovereignty whatever, and particularly to the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland, of whom I am now a subject."

Mr. Feargus O'CONNOR's health is rapidly improving under the care of Dr. TUKEE, of whose maisen de sante he is now an inmate. Moderate diet and restriction from intoxicating liquors, together with abundant exercise and the absence of excitement (political, pecuniary, and personal) have brought about this favourable result. As yet Mr. O'Connor has not been allowed to see his friends.

The Galway Packet says it can state on authority "that there is no truth in the paragraph which is going the round of the press, that Limerick has been reported on by the Commissioners as the port selected for the Packet Station.

(From the Limerick Reporter)

The Rev. J. BURKE, P.P., Cartole, proceeded to Sixmile-bridge this day, when it was intimated that bail would be taken for his appearance at Ennis assizes, to answer the indictment of having headed a seditious riot.

The Rev. Mr. BURKE was accompanied by the Rev. Mr. NOONAN, P.P., Cappaghwhite; Michael QUINN, Esq., J. T. DEVITT, Esq., J.P., and M. LENIHAN, Esq. The Rev. Mr. CLUNE, P.P., Six-mile-bridge; D. J. WILSON, Esq., Rev. Mr. O'SHAUGHNESSY, C.C., Callaghan's Mills, &c., were in the village. W. L, JOINT, Esq., solicitor, in the absence of Mr. O'DONNELL, professional adviser of the reverend-gentleman, was present. After a short time they proceeded to the court-house which was completely deserted by all the Magistrates of the neighbourhood, with the exception of John O'BRIEN, Esq., R.M., Tulls, to whom the "great unpaid" entirely left the duty which devolved upon the bench for the day. Several persons were in court, who had been arrested on the previous day, charged with rioting on the day of 22nd ult., and others charged with the abduction of certain voters from Meelick on the same morning. Soon after their appearance in court, Mr. O'BRIEN intimated that he was ready to take bail in the grand jury room for those who wished to tender bail. In answer to an inquiry, whether he was ready to proceed to the open court to hear such applications as would be made on behalf of the accused Mr. O'BRIEN positively refused doing so, stating it was not his intention to lave the grand jury room.

The rev. gentleman, with the gentlemen by whom they were accompanied, and the 'rioters' who were charged, and whose names and places of residence are as follows: - Thomas RIEDY, Limerick; Patt M'INERNEY, Crossroads; James HALLORAN, Jas. QUINLIVAN, and Patt KINEVANE, of Thomondgate, then proceeded to the grand jury-room.

Mr. O'BRIEN said he was then ready to take bail for such as would give it. The course was clear. He could do no more than take bail. If bail was refused, he had another duty to perform which he should execute.

Mr. JOYNT requested the magistrate to read over the informations of those who had sworn against the accused. The first person who appeared as having sworn information was Sarah WHITE a girl of about16 or 17 years of age. She swore that on the morning of the 22nd ult., KINEVANE, QUINLIVAN, &c., all went to her house, following J. FROST of Derra, and his sons, Edward and Patick FROST. She was so frightened that she did not know who the others were - they were forty in all; they took away the Frosts with them.

Mr. JOYNT said, that with the permission of the bench he would put some question to the witness.

Mr. O'BRIEN - It is in your power to cross-examine her if you like; but I have to assure you that it cannot affect the case one way or the other, or my conduct towards those who are accused. I have to take bail; and if it be refused, to commit the persons to prison.

Mr. WILSON - Before whom were the informations sworn?

Mr. O'BRIEN - All the informations were sworn before me.

Mr. JOYNT thought that it would have been fairer to the accused - much better in all respects - more constitutional, and affording the people more respect for the law, if the informations in this case were taken in open court at petty sessions in the first instance, and then the matter could be inquired into properly and fairly.

Mr. O'BRIEN - It is not necessary to summon a person to petty sessions, that person being charged with an indictable offence. On the contrary, the usual course is, to receive informations as I have taken these. If this were not so, it would be a positive defeat of justice. In this case there is a great public event in question. Parties are blamed at one side and the other. Whether I am right or whether I am wrong, I must say that my anxiety is to put an end to the excitement which now prevails on this subject; and my opinion is that every delay only tends to prolong the excitement, and to interfere with the public peace of the country.

Mr. JOYNT said that all this might be very right and proper in Mr. O'BRIEN's opinion; but where parties are living in the country, where they do not fly from investigation, where they are known, where they are ready to answer any charge that has been brought against them, it is not only harsh to call on men circumstanced as these to give bail in twenty-four hours, but it is positively unconstitutional to treat them in this way - nothing could possibly be more harsh.

Mr. O'BRIEN - Two of the parties charged in these informations live in the city of Limerick.

KINEVANE - There is an information there against me, and it can be proved that I was at my usual work on that day, and that I gave no offence to any man.

Mr. J. FROST - And I can swear that WALL was working with me that day, and that he had neither hand, act, or part in taking away voters.

Mr. JOYNT - After these facts, to insist on bail for these men, or in the alternative of their refusing it, to arrest and send them to jail is the excess of harshness if they do not give bail.

WALL - I was at my work all that day and had nothing to do with any one.

Mr. JOYNT then cross-examined Sarah WHITE, who swore that she saw Wall go every morning that way to his work; was not surprised at seeing him there; did not see him do anything at all that morning but stand up; did not see him threaten anybody; did not hear him say anything to anybody; he was as quiet as he could be. Mr. O'BRIEN - There is no doubt that there is a difference between WALL's case and others.

Mr. JOYNT - I say if that man, WALL, were summoned before petty sessions to answer in this case, the charge would be dismissed on the evidence of the girl who swears the informations against him; and would you call upon that man now either to give bail or go to goal (sic)?

Mr. O'BRIEN said he would proceed with the other informations. The next informations are those of William WHITE, a voter.

William WHITE came forward to swear that he did not go against his will at all with the men accused of rioting that day.

Mr. O'BRIEN - Why did you go? Mr. JOINT - I submit you have no right whatever to cross-examine your own witness. Mr. O'BRIEN - My object is to get the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, and to see that no injury or injustice shall be done to any one. Mr. JOYNT - But is a harsir (?), an unconstitutional , and I will say, a tyrannical set, to compel men to enter into bail, or to send the Queen's subjects to jail, not even on the semblance of accusation.

Mr. O'BRIEN said he could not sit there and listen to the word tyrannical used.

Mr. JOYNT - I must repeat it.

Mr. O'BRIEN - I certainly cannot listen to it.

Mr. JOYNT - Nothing can me (sic) more unconstitutional than this conduct of the government. All the witnesses have distinctly sworn there was no injury done to any person.

James COLLINS, who swore an information against M'INERNEY, did not appear at all.

Mr. O'BRIEN - I was about taking an information from Mr. GOGGIN when you made your appearance.

Mr. GOGGAN said that he had no information to give. He never saw people more quiet.

Mr. O'BRIEN - Under these circumstances, Mr. GOGGAN had no information to swear.

James FROST, of Derra, swore information but he swore also that there was no riot whatever, and that HALLORAN was not there good nor bad.

Mr. OBRIEN - Well, now I will take bail for KINEVANE.

After a good deal of discussion the magistrate fixed bail for KINEVANE and REIDY of 20£. Each, and sureties in 10£. Each, and for the others 10£. Each, and sureties 5£ each.

September 9, 1852


We subjoin from the Clonmel Chroniclete full particulars so far as they are yet known, of the savage murder of O'CALLAGHAN RYAN, Esq., who was assassinated last Friday, in open day, upon the public road in a populous neighbourhood; and though a policeman, who was within hearing of the fatal shot, hastened forward with the utmost speed no trace could be found of the assassins. We have neither time nor space at present to do more than append the following extract from the Clonmel Chronicle:-

It appears that the unfortunate gentleman had some refractory tenants on his property in the county Tipperary, not far from Kilmanaham, and that he had taken all the legal steps towards the eviction, which event was to have taken place, as we have heard on to-day. In the mean time not dreading any evil results to himself personally, he proceeded to the property in question on yesterday, with the view of averting the threatened eviction if the tenants could be brought to terms; but whether his plan was successful or the reverse, we have not learned. On his return in the afternoon towards Clonmel, he passed a policeman on the road near Whitefort, and had not proceded (sic) more than 500 yards when he was fired at by an assassin from behind the ditch of a plantation.on the road side; the policeman hearing the report of the shot immediately hastened forward, and on passing a turn of the road he saw Mr. Ryan's gray horse standing on the road without its rider, and two greyhounds standing close by. He also saw the hat which had been worn by the deceased lying on the road. He then saw the marks of persons struggling on the ditch, and following the traces through the plantation found the murdered body of the ill-fated gentleman, whom he had but a few moment's before saluted in the full possession of health and life. The deceased had been draged (sic) towards the brink of a lime-kiln in the plantation, into which the ruffians intended to throw him, when they were disturbed by the policeman. He was shot in the abdomen; but the inhuman wretches could not be satiated nor their vengeance appeased without making assurance doubly sure by battering his head to mummy, both with stones and also with a sharp instrument (such as a hatchet), with which they inflicted some frightful wounds. Instant alarm was given; the police were on the alert; the country was scouted in all directions, but we are sorry to say without effect. Such have been the miserable fate of poor Mr. Ryan than whom a more aimable (sic) man never breathed. He lived amongst us respected by all, and it is needles (sic) to add that his murder has cast a gleam over society which will not be speedily removed.


The scene of this frightful murder is situate in the sub-police district of Kilmanaham, about three-quarters of a mile from the police-station at the latter village, and about one-eighth of a mile beyond Whitefort-house on the Dungarvan road, and in a place well selected for such a deed of blood. There is a valley to the right as one goes from the village, well screened in, with the river Suir in the distance to the right, whilst to the left are Lord Stradbroke's plantations, very much overhanging the road, affording a dense cover for an assassin, as also an easy mode for escape. The unfortunate gentleman was riding in this lonesome place, attended by his favourite greyhounds, from Clashganny in the county Tipperary, and was coming in the direction of Kilmanagham (?) homewards to Clonmel, when at the point we have described, and at the hour of half-past six in the evening, he was shot, as some will say, from behind the low wall which bounds the road on the right, but as others will have it, on the road and then tumbled the body over the low wall down the steep, with the determination to throw it into an ancient lime-kiln, where, in consequence of its great depth and the overhanging briars with which it is clothed, his body might have remained undiscovered until identification would be impossible. Our reporter, and some friends who accompanied him to this scene of blood and murder, examined every inch of the ground - they found the bloody stone which must have been used to inflict some of the desperate wounds which were inflicted upon the unfortunate gentleman's head; a billhook must have been also used, as there was a desperate cut on the back of the head; the gun shot wound was immediately under the region of the heart. He was not robbed, as his watch and some change remained.

The village is filled with people from all parts. The Right Hon. the Earl of Donnoughmore is present, also Edmond MULCAHY, Esq., J.P., Abraham COATES, Charles PIM, Edward SARGINT, Dr. SARGINT, John PRENDERGRAST, Thomas MURPHY, Robert SPARROW, Joseph HONOR, (solicitor, to watch proceedings), Wm. QUINN, of Loughloher, Robert MALCOMSON. - Whitton, Esqs. Several officers of the gallant 39th Regiment were also present. Up to three o'clock the coroner had not arrived. We will keep a space open for the verdict. Rewards will be offered for the apprehension of the murderers. The greatest indignation prevails.

The jury, without a moment's hesitation, returned the following verdict.

"We find that the said O'Callaghan RYAN, Esq., on the event of Friday, the 3rd September, 1852, was riding on the road to Clonmel, when he was fired at, and shot on the left side of the abdomen, and divers (sic) deep wounds inflicted on his head, which caused his immediate death. And the jurors further find, that the said wounds and shooting were foully and maliciously inflicted on the said O'Callaghan Ryan, Esq., by some person or persons to the said jury at present unknown.

After the inquest the body was placed in a shell, and removed into town. We understand the funeral will take place on Monday.

On Sunday evening, 29th August, of nervous fever, at her residence, No. 5, Northumberland Square, Dublin, Mary, the beloved wife of Cristopher BENNET, Esq., after a short illness, which she bore with christian resignation. The deceased was only 23 years of age, and in every relation of life--a warm friend, a fond mother, and an affectionate wife, and equally worthy of admiration--her untimely fate will long be remembered with regret by all persons who had the pleasure of her acquaintance.--Requiescat in pace.

THE FIRST COCK. - A very good specimen of a woodcock has been forwarded to our office, which was shot on August the 25th, by H. P. PIGOTT, Esq., of Capard. It was killed at an elevation of 2,000 feet above the sea, on one of the hills of Ballinacor, county Wicklow, the seat of William KEMMIS, jun., Esq. We may safely put this down as "the first cock" shot in Ireland since last season. Indeed, we have never before hard of one appearing in this country at such a time of the year. It is, at all events, a great rarity, and plainly shows that on some occasions "the early bird" may catch what is not quite so desirable to it as "the worm." - Leinster Express.

THE LONDONDERRY ESTATE--We understand that, on Monday last, seventy of the tenants of the Marquis of Londonderry, in county Down, who had voted for Mr. CRAWFORD at the late election, were summoned to the office in Newtownards, to hear an "ukase" read from his lordship, and to receive sentence for contumacy in not voting as his lordship commanded them. The terms of this communication, we understand, were, that since the parties cited had not thought proper to do his lordship's bidding at the election, they must pay up every farthing of rent, now legally due, the custom of the country notwithstanding; while in every case of delay the most rigorous measures would be resorted to. This no idle threat, it seems, for already "warhawks" have taken possession of several tenants' houses, and are living at free quarters, besides contributions at the cost of the unfortunate defaulters.--Banner of Ulster.

DEATH OF THE LORD BISHOP OF MEATH--We regret to have to announce the death, in almost the prime of life at Melaga, on the 16th instant, of the Most Rev. Thomas Steward TOWNSEND, D.D., Lord Bishop of Meath. His Lordship was consecrated Bishop on All Saints Day, 1850, in the room of the venerated Bishop STOPFORD, who died on the 17th of September 1850. The late Bishop has left a young and numerous family to lament his irreparable loss to them.--E. Mail.
