| 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.

| 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.

| 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
THE POTATO CROP.
| 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 RUMOUR UNFOUNDED.
|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.”
