SUDDEN DEATHS. -- Two deaths took place most suddenly in this county within the week. The Rev. Henry Monck WINDER, the pious and estimable Vicar of Killinkara, died of disease of the heart on Friday last after a few hours suffering, and at eight o'clock this morning Dr. COYNE of this town fell a victim to an appopletic (sic) attack. He was complaining for some days of a rheumatic affection in the head, but no one thought, as he was walking in the streets on yesterday, that his race was so nearly run. A better citizen or a more respected man than Dr. COYNE had not existence, and a feeling of sorrow for his death is universal and intense here.

COLONIAL MISSION OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. -- We understand that the Rev. Robert JAMIESON of Belturbet has been appointed a Missionary to British North America by the Missionary Directors of the General Assembly at their late meeting in Belfast.

MONAGHAN MILITIA. -- The head quarters of this force which were here from the time the regiment came into the county, were removed to Belturbet Monday last.

INCUMBERED ESTATES COURT. -- A portion of the Lands of Gorcraff and Bog of Drumoarn, which were vested in the assignee of Thomas ARGUE were sold the other day, in Henrietta-street, and purchased by Mr. J. GILLESPIE for £27 13s. 4 1/2 d.

THE MEATH ELECTION. -- Mr. M'EVOY has been returned as member for Meath by a majority of two talons(talens?), the numbers that voted for him being about 1,600, while Mr. MEREDYTH had about 800 votes recorded for him.
