| SHOOTING AT A GIRL.A
young gentleman named William Randal Vaughan was charged at the College-street
police station, on Monday night, with firing off a pistol at Elizabeth Kelsoe,
an unfortunate female, whereby she sustained some injury to the face. It appears
that the accused and the woman Kelsoe entered an oyster shop, situated at No. 9,
Hawkins'-street, Dublin, and kept by a man named M'Nulty. M'Nulty has a small
room leading out of the shop, for the accomodation of his customers, and here
they sat down together, no other person being present at the time. Some little
time only had elapsed when words of altercation ensued, and were speedily
followed by the report of a pistol. One or two persons immediately rushed into
the room, when the girl stated that she had been fired at in the face by Mr.
Vaughan, and pointed to her cheek, which exhibited several flesh marks, but no
serious wounds. Intelligence of the event having been conveyed to the
College-street Station, Inspector Lowry at once proceeded to the spot and took
the accused into custody. The girl was taken in a cab to Mercer's Hospital,
where such attention as she needed was paid on the instant. Mr. Vaughan was
searched on reaching the station, when some shot and percussion caps were found
on his person. His own statement is that the pistol went off accidentally, he
being at the time under the influence of liquor. The case will be heard before
the magistrates at ten o'clock this morning.Daily Express.
| ACCIDENT TO MR.
HORSMAN, M.P.We have heard with great regret that a
sad accident befell the Chief Secretary while hunting, on Saturday, with the
Ward hounds. It appears that in a hard run of some two hours, Mr. Horsman, who
is a first-rate rider, was somehow or other thrown from his horse, and while in
that state the horse, which was quite tired, rolled over him heavily, and, we
understand, severely injured him. No medical attendance was, unfortunately, at
hand, but every attention was bestowed on the sufferer which care and solicitude
could afford. On inquiry last night at his residence in the Phoenix Park, we
ascertained that Surgeon O'Reilly has been in attendance upon the honourable
gentleman, and that although he has received considerable injury by the fall,
and will necessarily be confined to his apartment for some days, yet the
injuries are not of a nature to cause any serious apprehensions. Freeman.
| THE QUEEN.There
are reasons to believe that our gracious Sovereign is in a condition to render
the direct succession to the throne a matter of even greater certainty than it
is at present ; and that in the month of March next it is most probable that
another Prince or Princess will be presented to the nation.London Paper.
