   We take the following extract from a letter this morning received from F. A. Jackson, Esq., of Inane, Roscrea :—
   “It may be in your recollection that I sent you a statement last May, which you published in your newspaper, of my early potatoes being diseased. It was the first public notice of the appearance of the disease in this district, and many of our neighbours were incredulous on the subject, and disregarded the warning. I am sorry to be obliged to have the same story to tell again this year. The fatal spots have again appeared within the last few days on my early crop, which have now attained their full height, and are nearly fit to dig. They are unmistakeably inflicted with the potato murrain of the two last years. Whether the same is to be the fate of the general crop, sown and sowing this year, no man can say, but it looks bad.—King's County Chronicle.

   The following General order has been issued by the Treasury :—
“Treasury Chambers, 24th April, 1847.   
   “I am commanded by the Lords Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury to desire that you give directions for suspending the demand for duty on ship buscuit, and all other buscuit, except fancy buscuit and confectionary, until the 1st of September next.
“I remain, gentlemen, your's, &c. &c.,   
   “To the Commissioners of Customs.”

   Last night, of the prevailing epidemic, Miss Kate Sullivan, of George's-quay, step-daughter of Edwd. Casey, Esq., T.C. This young lady was in the prime of life, 23 years of age. Her illness was of a short continuance, and her decease is a cause of deep affliction to her most bereaved relatives, as well as to the numerous friends by whom she was esteemed for her many amiable virtues and accomplishments. It is supposed she lost her life in the cause of humanity, like many others of our virtuous citizens. It was her custom to attend to the wants and woes of a great many of our stricken poor, and from one of the afflicted people, the disease must have been communicated of which she died. Her virtues were peculiarly feminine—gentle, unobtrusive and mild, and she now has met a great reward for a life that was “lovely” and a death virtuous “in the bosom of her Father and her God.”
   We deeply regret to have to announce the death of Richard White, Esq., of Inchiclough, Bantry, leaving a widow and eleven children to mourn their bereavement. His loss, at this calamitous period, consummates the awful affliction with which the Almighty has been pleased to visit the poor of that district.—Reporter
   On the 11th inst., after a short illness, Henry Sharp, Esq., of Mount Conway.
   At Lismore, on Tuesday, the 11th inst., of fever, Mr. Wm. Wall, Clerk of the Lismore Union—an affectionate husband and father, a sincere friend, and a truly upright man.
   On the 7th inst., at his residence, Fort Henry, in this county, in the 36th year of his age, George P. Bullen, Esq., son of the late Rev. Robert Bullen of Kanturk, leaving a wife and four children to deplore his loss.
   In Buttevant, of a brain fever, Mr. Samuel Fogarty, late of this City, Architect.
   At Clonmel, Miss Mary Gordon, daughter of the late Samuel Gordon, Esq., of that town, and sister to Mr. Gordon of Cork.
   On Saturday, at No. 1, Winthrop-street, Peter, the infant son of Mr. P. Tyrie, aged 14 months.
   At Park Villas, Cove, on the 10th inst., aged 77, Elizabeth Ann reclict of the late William Mackenzie, Esq., of Weymouth, Dorsetshire.
   In Dublin, in an advanced age, Miss Considine. She has left her large funded property to her nephew, Hiffernan Considine, Esq., of Derk, county Limerick.
   At Bath, on Friday, the 7th inst., in the 53d year of his age, Richard Heaviside, Esq., late of 15, Brunswick-square, Brighton, a magistrate for the county of Sussex, and formerly a captain in the King's Dragoon Guards.
M A R R I E D .
   On Thursday, the 13th inst., at Macroom, by the Rev. Henry Swanzy, Nicholas W. White, Esq., to Elizabeth, eldest daughter of James M. Cooke, Esq.
   On the 11th inst., in the Cathedral of Cashel, by the Rev. George Lawless, Captain George Minchin, late a senior captain in the Indian Navy, to Matilda, third daughter of the late John Scott, Esq., of that city.

   THE ODD FELLOWS BOUNTY.—Sir—Your letter of 29th ult., reached me by this evening's post, enclosing an order on the National Bank, for 10l. from the benevolent Society of Odd Fellows ; and I lose no time in acknowledging receipt of same ; and, on the part of the Ladies' Committee for relieving the poor of Tralee, I beg leave to express our very sincere thanks for this most seasonable donation.—I remain, Sir, your most obliged, Katherine Mary Donovan, Honorary Secretary Ladies' Committee for the relief of the poor of Tralee.

   Our great countryman reached Genoa on the 6th instant, after a fine, but somewhat tedious passage of twenty-two hours, and he may, perhaps, make a short stay in that city.
   The voyage was borne by him exceedingly well, and the accounts add that “it has not checked the improvement already manifested, but the reverse. In fact he is not only beyond comparison better, than when leaving England, but continues to recover rapidly.”—Freeman.
THE CROPS.—We have been speaking to a gentleman who has arrived in this city, after having travelled through the greater portion of the counties Galway, Clare, Limerick, and Cork, who informs us that the appearance of the crops is cheering in the extreme ; and that there is a great breadth, considering all circumstances, of potatoes sown, and being sown, and that the plants which are over ground wear a most healthy and luxuriant appearance.
ABOUT 3 o'clock on Sunday a young man named John Connell, whilst in the act of crossing a plank that spans the river at Carrigrohane, where a bridge is at present being erected, slipped over and was precipitated into the river, which at the time was much swollen, owing to the recent heavy rains. The unfortunate young man was observed to struggle for a long time, but the rapidity of the current was too much for him, and he finally sunk to rise no more. As yet the body has not been recovered. This should be a caution to the fool-hardy peasantry of the locality, who are in the habit of crossing these planks, very unnecessarily, as there is a ferry-boat constantly plying on the spot.
AN accident which, it is to be feared, will involve the life of one person at least, occurred on Friday evening to two workmen, engaged in quarrying at Silver Spring, Glanmire. It appears that these men had been quarrying the rock to a considerable depth, and unfortunately neglected to provide sufficient support for the overhanging mass, when a large portion became detached and fell upon them. They were removed to the North Infirmary, where it was stated that the injuries inflicted on one of them were such as would require the amputation of both legs, but in the other case the injuries were not so severe.
   The paupers who have recently arrived from Europe give a most melancholy account of their sufferings. Upwards of eighty individuals, almost dead with the ship fever, were landed from one ship alone, while twenty-seven of the cargo died on the passage, and were thrown into the sea. They were one hundred days tossing to and fro upon the ocean, and for the last twenty days their only food consisted of a few ounces of meal per day, and their only water was obtained from the clouds. The miseries which these people suffer are brought upon themselves, for they have no business to leave their country without at least a sufficient quantity of food to feed them while making the passage.—New York Sun.

GALWAY, MONDAY.—The Election took place this day. James Burke, Esq., proposed Captain Burke, and the nomination was seconded by Robert Bodkin, Esq. There being no other candidate, the High Sherriff declared Captain Burke duly elected amidst loud cheering. Never, perhaps, was there so general or unanimous an Election in Galway.—Dublin Evening Post.

A BIG SHIP.—The largest vessel, which ever came up this river is the “Jessie,” a Liverpool merchantman, now lying near the Custom house. Her bulk appears to be a subject of great curiosity with the country folk looking out for a good craft. She arrived with guano, and is chartered to take emigrants for America. The Jessie, though carrying a thousand tons, seems perfectly safe and easy at her station.

THE music-loving portion of the Citizens will be gratified to learn that the Military Bands of the 47th and 67th Regiments will alternately perform at Belgrave-place, and York Terrace every Wednesday and Friday (weather permitting) from 3 to 5 o'clock in the afternoon of each day.

WE have heard of a fact, which speaks more eloquently of the wretched and truly deplorable condition of our ill-fated land, than all the laboured essays or discourses which could be composed on the sad subject. The Cork Patent Saw Mills at King street, the largest establishment of the kind we believe in the land, have been at full work, with from sixteen to twenty pair of saws going at the same time from morning to night, for the last six or eight months, cutting planks for coffins! The other orders to the same establishment were planks and scantlings for the furniture of berthing in emigrant vessels, and for the erection of Fever Sheds in all parts of the county!

THERE were 65 paupers removed on yesterday from the sheds of the Shandon Guard-house to the Cork Work- house. The vast majority of these persons were from the country, and nearly all were labouring under fever. Previous to their removal, The Rev. John Holland, North Presbytery, was sent to administer religious consolation to a young man who appeared worse than the others, but on his arrival, death terminated his sufferings. At a later period of the day the Rev. Mr. Russell administered the last sacraments to a young girl who was immediately after removed to hospital.

A WOMAN was brought up at the police office on yesterday, upon a charge of endeavouring to impose upon some country people, by selling horse flesh as meat of an inferior description. The prisoner partially denied the charge, stating that it was for hounds it was intended, but the prosecutors persisted in their statement that she attempted to impose it upon them as beef, which “though rather poor was very good.” The prisoner was remanded for further examination. This, it is probable, is only one of many tricks that are at present in operation for the purpose of victimising the credulous people who are about emigrating to America.

THE first Summer Show, for the current year, of Fruits, Flowers, and Vegetables, contributed by the members and subscribers of this excellent Society, was held on Wednesday last, at the Great Room of the Corn Exchange ; but owing to the coldness and backwardness of the season the exhibition, although very creditable indeed, was not on as large a scale, as at the corresponding periods of former years. The Vegetables were particularly large and luxuriant, the greatest, if not the most important, rarity under this head being, a sample of fine new Potatoes, perfectly free from the least taint of blight or murrain. There was also exhibited a splendind sample of Rye, in ear, sown in November last, on the property of Mr. D. Reilly, Esq., Capwell, the stalks being fully six feet in height. Owing to the unpropitious nature of the weather, the visitors during the day was very thin, but those who did attend were delighted not alone by the contemplation of some of the rarest productions of the interesting and elevating art of floriculture, but were also regaled with a banquet of sweet sounds, the excellent band of the 47th regiment being in attendance.

ABOUT three weeks since a woman named Margaret Lynch was convicted of having stolen two watches, the property of a man named Crowley, living in Fishamble- lane. On Sunday night last the prisoner was delivered of a child, which she contrived to conceal from the notice of the gaol authorities, until the following night, when she cruelly smothered it in the cell. At the same time she violently threatened two female prisoners, confined in the same cell, if they attempted to disclose the particulars of the atrocious act they had witnessed. A vague account of the circumstances, however, was given by some party to one of the turnkeys, and a rigorous inquiry was immediately instituted. The result has been that an inquest was held on yesterday, and a verdict of “wilful murder” returned against the prisoner.

   It is our painful and melancholy duty to record the death of the Rev. Daniel Horgan, of Donoughmore—a priest possessing in their plentitude all the attributes that endear and adorn the sacred character. In the prime of life he has been snatched away from a large circle of friends—from a people that almost adored him. He fell a victim, at the early age of 34, to fever, caught in the discharge of his duties. Blessed with a happy temper, he won, without an effort, the approbation and admiration of all who knew him. In society, the courteous gentleman —with his friends the innocent, unaffected, cheerful companion—among the poor he was the charitable, pious, zealous, friendly priest. Holding the first place in the affections of respectable and independant parents, he was the better able to be generous to the poor, wheresoever he found them. Skibbereen was a scene of his labours for 5 years, where his virtues won the esteem of all creeds and classes, and, perhaps, no priest was ever more beloved by a good and generous people. Well may the church of Cloyne mourn over his loss, and say with the wise man—“consummatus in brevi, explevit tempora multa.”—May he rest in peace.
   This morning, at Clarke's Bridge, of Fever, Miss Honora Foley.
   Yesterday, of fever, in the 32d year of his age, Mr. Maurice Madden.
   On the 22d inst., Mary, the beloved child of Mr. P. Brown, Clarence-street, aged 4½ years.
   On the 17th inst., in the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy, Rutland-street, Miss Margaret Hogan, sister of our distinguished townsman, whose name stands nearly highest in the list of living Sculptors. Notwithstanding every inducement which he could offer to her, she refused to accompany him to Rome, preferring to remain in this country, devoting herself to works of charity and the holy offices of religion. In the zealous performance of the former, as a member of the valuable community to which she belonged, and which she joined a little more than three years ago, she was seized on by the prevailing fatal epidemic, and fell a victim to its malignity. With virtues such as her's it cannot be presumptuous to hope that she has only passed from the sorrows of Earth to find eternal rest amongst the joys of Heaven.—May she rest in peace.
   On the 18th inst., at Shanklen, in the Isle of Wight, whither he had repaired for the benefit of his health, R. H. Sheehan, Esq., of Mespil House, Dublin, for 35 years editor and joint proprietor of the Dublin Evening Mail.

   GENOA, MAY, 12.—Mr. O'Connell arrived here on Friday, on his way to Rome, but has been attacked by an illness so serious, that he is confined to his bed at the Hotel Feder, and one of his physicians tells me this morning that it will be some days before he can be moved, if he move at all. The other day (Monday) they were much alarmed for his life, as in addition to his malady, which is cerebral, he suffered from intestinal inflammation, with a violent diarrhea ; however after applying leeches and other remedies, the symptoms of immediate danger disappeared, and he was better yesterday, and this morning he continues improving, although he himself says that he shall not live three days.
   He has two physicians, one a Genoese, and the other an Englishman established here, and they concur in saying, that although he may rally, his constitution is so enfeebled that it is scarcely possible for him to survive a long time.
   P.S.—Many have called upon Mr. O'Connell, but he receives no one.—Morning Chronicle Correspondent

   It is not true as stated by a Cotemporary, [sic] that the “potato murrain” of last year has re-appeared in this neighbourhood. We have made every inquiry on the subject, and find that what has been sown is in a very promising condition. At the meeting of the Board of Guardians of this Union on Tuesday, Mr. John Hurly, in noticing the paragraph in question, which he said was calculated to deter many from sowing, stated that he never saw the potato crop in this district, and he had examined no small portion of it with great attention— looking so luxuriant.—Tralee Chronicle.

   Thomas Malone, the Policeman who received gun shot wounds in the recent conflict with a band of armed men near Liskennet (the particulars of which appeared in our columns) died on Tuesday night in Rathkeale, from the effects of the injuries, and has left a wife and family to deplore his untimely and sudden fate. On Wednesday, John Cox, Esq., coroner, held an inquest on the body, in the Sessions house of Ballingarry, which was attended by the Very Rev. M. Fitzgerald, P.P. who having expressed abhorrence of all lawless proceedings, said, that he felt so disgusted at the first news of this outrage, he actually refused the usual mass of requiem and christian burial to Connell the man who was shot dead upon the occasion by the Police. He had since satisfied himself that Connell and his associates were not engaged in any lawless proceeding that night, but were returning from the neighbourhood of Manister, where they had been holding possession of a farm. At the request of Archdeacon Fitzgerald, the Coroner and foreman of the Jury (Counsellor Scanlan) agreed to adjourn the inquest until the opinion of the law officers of the Crown was had as to the propriety of bringing up Dillane and Madden arrested by the Police for examination as witnesses. —Limerick Chronicle.
   Michael Lacy, from the neighbourhood of Glenomera, against whom private information was received by the Clonrea Police, as one of the men who attacked Mr. Watson, was arrested on Thursday, on board the Coquimbo, passenger vessel, in the Pool, and taken before the Magistrates, who did not conceive the grounds of suspicion strong enough to warrant the detention of the prisoner, who was discharged. Four men were arrested in Ballingarry yesterday, on suspicion, of being of the party engaged in the recent conflict with the police at Liskennett.—Limerick Chronicle.

THE London journals of Saturday evening, so anxiously looked for, have just arrived. We are delighted to perceive by the following from the Atlas, which we finds in the Sun of Saturday, that not only is Mr. O'CONNELL not dead, but that he was recovering from an attack which he experienced in Genoa:—
(From the Atlas)
   SECOND EDITION.—We are in receipt of a private letter this morning from Florence, dated May 13th, by which we are able to set at rest the anxiety of Mr. O'Connell's friends respecting the above report. It gives us pleasure to state that Mr. O'Connell was then on his way to Rome, and apparently recovered from the attack which seized him at Genoa. The writer says—
   “Mr. O'Connell and his son, Mr. D. O'Connell jun., with the Rev. Dr. Miley and his private physician, have arrived at Leghorn, from whence they proceed by the steamer to Civita Vechia and Rome, where he is to remain a short time, after which he comes to Florence to pass the summer months at a villa.”
