| The Clerk read a letter from the Commissioners, stating in
reply to resolutions of the Board, that the Kanturk Work- house would soon be
opened for the admission of paupers, and requesting of the Guardians not to
discharge those paupers who are now in the Work-house from the Kanturk Union—also

| IRON STEAM-BOATS.—I
had the pleasure at breakfast of sitting next to Mr. Babbage, whose name is well
known among us as the author of the self-calculating machine. He has a most
remarkable eye, that looks as if it might penetrate science, or any thing else
he chose to look into. He described the iron steamer now building, which has a
larger tonnage than any merchant ship in the world, and expressed an opinion
that iron ships would supersede all others ; and another opinion that much
concerns us, and which, I trust will soon be verified—that in a few years
these iron steamers will go to America in seven days!—Miss Sedgewick's
| Maurice O'Connell, Esq., M.P. and suite, arrived per the

| A rumour very generally afloat in Cork on Thursday, was,
that the ex-regent, General Espartero, had arrived incog there,
accompanied by a friend, a partner in his flight from Spain.
WONDERFUL FULFILMENT OF WELLINGTON'S PROPHECY.
| When George IV. was being strongly importuned by
Wellington to give consent to a measure which, he was told, the urgent necessity
of the times, and the social condition of men, demanded, and must have, the sick
monarch, ill at ease, weary of importunity, and vanquished by argument, gave his
reluctant acquiescence ; and he was informed that he had saved his dominions
from the horrors of civil war. “War! (said the King)—and how many years'
peace do you guarantee to England, after emancipation is granted?” “Fifteen,”
was the ready reply of the minister. This pledge of triple lustre of tranquility
was made in January, 1829 ; and the fifteen years of the promised duration of
peace expired on the first day of Mr. O'Connel's trial!—Church
| The following decision before Mr. Justice Jackson, at the Limerick
assizes, affords an additional proof of the insulting character and immoral
tendency of the Established Church in this country. The sacred institution of
marriage is considered by the law to be null, in the case of persons of
different creeds being united by any minister but one of the establishment :—
| Daniel Robinson was indicted for bigamy, he having
married Herminia Southerwood, his former wife being still alive. Rev. John
Madden was then examined—Married the prisoner to Anne Griffith May two years.
Cross-examined—Knew the prisoner in the police ; married the
prisoner according to the rites of the Catholic Church ; I heard he was a
Protestant, but he did not tell he was ; his wife Anne Griffith, told me he was
before the marriage ; Anne Griffith is a Catholic, she was living with him
before marriage, and had children ; it was to take them out of this course of
sin that he married them.
Mr. Cart said the marriage was void.
His Lordship concurred, and said an Act of Geo. II. declared
the marriage null and void in law, whatever it might be in a religious point of
view. The jury should acquit him.
The jury accordingly found a verdict of Not Guilty.
