|A Greek vessel, called the Five Brothers, arrived in this port on Friday, laden with Indian corn from one of the ports of the Mediterranean. She was towed up to the quay on that evening, and a berth was selected for her accomodation in the south channel, some distance from Anglesea bridge. About two o'clock on Friday night, the tide being out, the vessel suddenly listed over, and continued to fall until she lay nearly on her beam ends. Warps were speedily got out, and every exertion was made to place the vessel in a proper position ; but up to the present, they appear to have been unsuccessful, as she remains in the same situation. At high water the hull of the vessel is almost covered, and the consequence is that the water enters freely into the hold and the cabins. It is anticipated that the cargo, will be materially damaged ; and it is also feared that the vessel will suffer considerable injury. The accident, it is understood, is attributable to the berth that was selected, which is a slanting mud bank, from which the brig fell off as the tide receded.|
FIRE IN SHANDON STREET.
|AT seven o'clock last evening a fire broke out in the house of a man named Rourke, in Mallow lane, which quickly extended to some of the adjoining houses. Despite the efforts of the Constabulary, who judiciously directed the engines that were on the ground, the houses of Mrs. Crean and Mr. Jeremiah Murphy were partially destroyed. The names of Constable Byrne, Head Constable Crowley and Porter have been mentioned as those who were most active and perservering in endeavouring to suppress the conflagration. The cause was not distinctly traced, from which the accident could be supposed to have resulted.|
COUNTY OF TIPPERARY.
| ATROCIOUS OUTRAGE.On Wednesday evening whilst John Quin, Carrigatoher, and his family were sitting around their humble hearth, enjoying their rural happiness, and resting their wearied limbs after the toils of the day, they were started by loud knocking at the door and the utterance of revengeful expressions.|
| A PLEASANT PROSPECT!We have heard on good authority that three highly respectable and useful country gentlemen residing in the northern end of this county are doomed for assassination. One of the gentlemen narrowly escaped the assassin's aim during the past week. On Sunday morning a notice was found posted near the town of Kennity, on the road leading into Frankford, warning those gentlemen, who intended to dispossess tenants, to remember the fate of Lucas, at Brusna. The notice also stated that those who would dare to pay cess of any kind were going against the body of the people.|
TO THE EDITOR OF THE CORK EXAMINER
| SIR,In your report of what occurred at the Board of Guardians on Wednesday last, it is ommitted that the Storekeeper stated to the Board that on calling to my store to complain of the quality of the soap sent, he was shewn that heavy orders had taken off all my own manufacture, which compelled me to purchase the quantity required (about 2½ cwt.), but that a boiling of my own was then finishing, which would be ready for delivery in a couple of days ; that this was done, the soap complained of was removed, and the soap delivered instead of it quite approved of. This took place several days before the Board met on Wednesday. Your kind insertion of this will oblige. Sir, your respectful obedient servant.

|STATE OF THE COUNTY KERRY.|
(From the Tralee Post)
| As already announced, there was an attack on the Tralee Workhouse this week.
At Killarney, on Monday, the Guardians were obliged to call in the military to preserve the peace and prevent violence.
In Dingle, the Relieving Officer was obliged to receive the protection of a police force.
Threatening notices have been served on the best landlords and most attentive guardians in Irraghticonnor.
On Wednesday last, some persons went to a tillage field near Blennerville, out of which the crop had already been dug, to turn it up for the sake of any small potatoes that might have been left in the ground. The owner of the field, a man named Kean Mahony, came to prevent them, armed with a loaded gun, and some hot words arose, during which a young man named Flynn raised his spadehe says to put it on his shoulder, preparatory to going away, but Mahony asserts that it was to strike himselfon which Mahony fired at him, and shot his right arm to pieces, just below the shoulder. Poor Flynn was brought in to the County Infirmary where the wounded limb was since amputated by Dr. Crumpe. The young man still continues in the most dangerous state. He bore the character of a most inoffensive lad.
|THE following extraordinary narrative appears in the Liverpool correspondence of the Times.
An incident in the affairs, political and commercial, of Ireland, has been mentioned on 'Change to-day, which is worthy of attention, and, authenticated, worthy of more serious regard. A Liverpool merchant received from a party residing in the south of the sister country an order for teas to the value of some £200. The teas were forwarded accordingly, and with them a copy of the invoice. Subsequently, payment was applied for, but not made. Repeated letters were therefore sent, and at length a policy of insurance upon the life of a magistrate residing in Tipperary was forwarded. A policy of insurance was plainly not cashmerely inconvertible paper ; and a remonstrance to that effect was forewarded to the sender. In reply it was written to this effect :Send the deed and a golden shilling, and the paper shall be remitted as cash! There is no reason to doubt the correctness of this statement. To-morrow it shall be authenticated. Yet it is almost incredible.
MURDERS IN THE NORTH.
(From the Freeman)
| OMAGH, NOV. 18This county is very much disturbed at present. There have been three murders this last week two men and one woman. A man of the name of Hassettan, a bailiff, while on an execution at Pomray, was murdered. Another man, named Forest, who was attending a horse race, at Newton Saville, was beaten on Sunday last ; he has since died. The woman was shot by the bailiffs while making a distress.|
| ANOTHER SUSPECTED MURDER.An inquest was held yesterday in the townlands of Liscable, in the neighbourhood of Newtownstewart, on the body of a man named John M'Laughlin, who was found dead in a glen near a bye-way leading to his own house, on the morning of Tuesday last. The deceased had been in Newtownstewart market on the previous day, but no particulars have transpired as to how he came by his death. One of the witnesses examined at the inquest, whose name we have been unable to ascertain, was proceeding to Newtownstewart early on the morning of Tuesday, and heard the deceased calling for help and moaning, but strange to say he neither went to his assistance, nor gave any alarm to the neighbours until he was returning from Newtownstewart, when upon examination the unfortunate man was found dead. The inquest was adjourned until Thursday last, that some further evidence might be obtained.Tyrone Paper.|
COUNTY OF DONEGAL
| ATTEMPT AT MURDER.On Friday night last as two respectable men were returning, on horseback, from the fair of Donegal, to Pettigo, they were attacked by some ruffians, one of whom fired a gun at them, the contents of which passed close to the horsemen, who pursued the would-be assassin some distance ; but the night being dark he escaped detection. This outrage took place on the road passing the large bog in the parish of Templecarn, in this county.Ballyshannon Herald.|
| Mr. Daniel Dillon, a rich farmer, and money lender, was waylaid within a furlong of his residence at Cappamore, last evening, and brutally murdered. His assailants literally stoned their victim to death, and cleft his head with a hatchet. The deceased had decreed several persons indebted to him at the late Quarter Sessions, and hence it is supposed the fatal vengeance. Dillon has left a young wife and several children. His general character was that of a prudent, industrious man. It is ascertained that four men committed this atrocious outrage.|
| On Wednesday night two men named Larkinfather and sonwere badly wounded by a gang of ruffians, while defending their house, which they had assailed in search of his daughter. The scene of this outrage is about two miles from Banagher.|
COUNTY OF MAYO.
| ALLEGED MURDER.On last Monday evening a man named Browne, died at Bunnifinglass, a place within four miles of this town. The deceased attended a fair held there on that day and was engaged in a fight with some other persons. It is reported that he received a blow of a loaded whip on the head, but that he afterwards transacted business and did not complain of being injured. In the course of the evening, after having drunk, it is said pretty freely, he retired to bed, and shortly after expired. An inquest will be held on the body this day.Tyrawly Herald.|
