With regret we have to announce the death of the Hon. Mrs.

and several other noble families, will be placed in mourning.
We regret to announce the demise of Elizabeth Lady Dowager
Wharncliffe, who died on Wednesday evening, at her house in Lower

daughter of John, first Earl of Erne, by his second marriage with Lady Mary
Hervey, daughter of the fourth Earl of Bristol. Her ladyship, who was in her
79th year, married, March 30, 1799, James, first Lord Wharncliffe, grandfather
to the present peer, who at his death, in 1845, was Lord Privy Seal in the late
Sir Robert Peel's Administration. By her husband she leaves surviving issue the
Right Hon. James Stuart Wortley, M.P., the Recorder of London, and the Hon.
Caroline, married to the Hon. and Rev. John Chetwynd Talbot, son of the late

families of rank are placed in mourning by her dissolution.

receipt of Four Pounds from James Harding, Esq., Cork, to be distributed amongst
the poor of Macroom, a bequest of the late Mrs. Harding, of Cork.
DISBANDING OF THE IRISH MILITIA.
| Another change has come over Lord Panmure's mind with
respect to disbanding the Militia. A correspondence has taken place upon the
subject between the War Office and the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. His
Excellency was informed that the Government had resolved upon disbanding the
English and Scotch regiments of Militia, and Lord Carlisle was asked whether
there was, in his opinion, any valid objection to taking a similar course with
respect to the Irish Militia, and as the reply, I understand, is to the effect
the Irish Government sees no objection, the Irish Militia will, no doubt, be
turned adrift to find a livelihood as they best may. It is generally supposed
here that the Medical Officers will receive compensation.—Correspondent of
|A GIRL named Mary Hegarty was brought before the
bench last evening, charged with stripping a child a short time before in the
neighbourhood of Warren's Place. The child, who is the son of Mr. M'Carthy,
Warren's Place, came home crying, and, the robbery having been thus discovered,
pursuit was instantly given, and the prisoner was arrested in a pawn office in
Paul-street, where she was endeavouring to pledge the coat. Informations were
ordered. It was stated that this is the fourth case, in which children have been
stripped within the last month.

|A MAN named Hickson was sentenced to a month's
imprisonment with hard labour, for having assaulted a poor man, Francis Casey,
with a candlestick, which the defendant had broken on his head.
A fashionably-attired young woman named Ellen Graham,
was brought before the bench by Head-Constable Porter on a charge of having
stolen a silk mantle and a rack from the establishment of Messrs. O'Gilvie &
Sutherland, Patrick's Street. The Head-Constable stated that on searching the
prisoner, he discovered the property rolled up under her arm. Mr. M'Namara, a
clerk in the establishment, stated that the articles had not been paid for by
the prisoner. She got the mantle from one of the clerks with a cheque, but she
did not present the cheque to the cash-box.
The case was postponed until further evidence could be
|A MAN named Connor, was brought up at the
Police-office last evening, under the following circumstances. It appeared from
the statement of Mr. Simpson, that the prisoner went into the establishment of
Messrs. Newsom and Son, on Saturday, and enquired what they charged a cwt. for
lead, at the same time stating that he had been authorised by Mr. John Daly, to
offer 18s. a cwt. for it. This conversation occurred during the absence of Mr.
Simpson, and it appeared that the offer made by the prisoner was accepted ; but
on his return told him Mr. Daly could not get it for less than twenty shillings,
and Connor went ostensibly to enquire whether Mr. Daly would consent to pay the
increased price. On his return he stated that Mr. Daly was prepared to pay the
twenty shillings, and, while the lead was being packed, the prisoner walked in
and out of the place several times. His manner excited suspicion, and a person
was directed to watch his movements, but no attempt at dishonesty was observed.
The lead was packed, upon which the defendant went away, and directed the bill
be sent to Mr. Daly, the lead remaining in the establishment of Messrs. Newsom.
On the invoice being presented, Mr. Finn denied that either he or Mr. Daly had
ever authorised the prisoner to go to Messrs. Newsom, and offer 20s. a cwt. for
lead ; but on further inquiry, it was ascertained that the prisoner had on the
same evening, Saturday, sold twenty-five pounds of lead in the establishment of
Mr. Daly. It was suggested that the prisoner while assisting in packing the lead
contrived to conceal twenty-five pounds of it on his person, inside a loose
frock which he wore, and that to afford him the opportunity of doing so, was the
motive which led him to concoct the story in reference to Mr. Daly. The prisoner
was remanded to this morning.
|THE house of Mrs. DOWNING, in
the North Main-street, was broken into some time during last night, and five
hams, three silver spoons, and some other articles of property carried off. In a
few hours after Head-Constable CROWLEY arrested five
persons on suspicion in a lane off Baily's lane. The names of the prisoners are
Ellen Fitzgerald, Julia Rourke, Bridget Connell, Ellen Bourke, and John Mahony.
On entering one of the houses the Head-Constable found Bridget Connell and John
Mahony, who live together, enjoying an exceedingly comfortable breakfast, and in
the pocket of the female prisoner he found a considerable quantity of silver.
The prisoners were all remanded until to-morrow.
chicken of the Cochin China species was left at our Office to-day, by a
gentleman residing in this city, which exhibits a singular freak of nature. The
bird is fully formed, but, where the tail ought to be looked for, a rather
imperfectly formed leg, with three claws fully developed, protrudes, thus
supplying it with a leg more than the usual complement. The little animal lived
for two or three days, but the mal-formation referred to was not observed until
after its death.
FERMOY MONTHLY FAIR.
|THE fair held on Tuesday, being the last Tuesday in
the month, was the largest and in every way the most satisfactory one held for
some time in this neighbourhood—numerous buyers, many from a great distance
attending. Milch cows and springers were in great demand and sold from 11 to 15
guineas. Mr. J. Dooling showed a very handsome one priced at £22. Mr.
Campbell's lot of stores sold at £12 each, and attracted general attention,
great credit being given to him for their forward state at this early season.
Two-year olds sold freely from £6 to £8. Yearlings were not well represented ;
a few brought £5. Fat sheep from 35s. to 50s. ; Mr. Lucas obtained the latter
price. Hoggets from 25s. to 29s. The Pig fair was animated, and all were sold at
|ABOUT one o'clock, yesterday, a woman called at the
house of a Mr. Wheeler living on Sullivan's-quay, and desired the servant to
present a paper to her mistress, which she called a petition. The servant went
up stairs, but, during her absence, the petitioner helped herself to an
excellent shawl which lay in the hall, and disappeared without waiting to
ascertain the result of her appeal. The petition is signed “John Sullivan,”
and as the prisoner is believed to have practised this dodge somewhat
successfully through the city, persons should be on their guard against similar
