| The following magistrates were on the benchNeal Browne, R.M. ; Hugh Pollock, R.M. ; The O'Donovan, Arthur Percy Aylmer, William R. Meade, Nicholas Marshal Cummins, Charles Evanson, Captain Martin, Nicholas Dunscombe, Wm. Moore Drew, &c.|
|BREAKING INTO MONTPELIER HOUSE.|
| William Jagoe alias John Lee, was convicted of burglariously breaking into Montpelier-house, the residence of the O'Donovan. He got into the house about 2½ o'clock in the morning by lifting up a window, and went into the room where the coachman was sleeping, and pretended to be drunk, asking the coachman to allow him to get into his bed, as he was tired, and that he lost his way ; a box of matches was found with him.
The prisoner was found guilty, and proving to be a returned convict, was sentenced to eight years penal servitude.
| Laurence Daly was charged with a grievous assault on James Bowden and John Henry Colvin, both members of the society of Friends, on the 21st August last, at Ballinure.
John H. Colvin and James Bowden were examined by Mr. P. O'Connell, Crown-solicitor, and proved that they were walking towards the Douglas Post-office, about 6½ oclock, on the evening in question, when between Mr. Crawford's gate and Douglas, they perceived a man shouting towards them ; he appeared in a sailor's dress, and had a bag or something in his hands ; when he came up to them, he accused them of throwing stones at him, which they denied, whereupon he struck Colvin with his clenched fist on the side of the head, and then took Mr. Bowden's stick from him, and struck him with great force on the head, and cut his head in two places throught [sic] his hat ; they then struggled with him and got him down, calling loudly for help, when finding no one coming to their assistance, they thought it best to run away ; they had come to arrange the affairs of a deceased friend of theirs, who had been a tutor at Mr. Pike's. Mr. Colvin was from Dublin, and Mr. Bowden from Surrey.
Mr. O'Hea, with Mr., Gillman, defended the prisoner, and called Mr. Denis Murpy as to character. The defense was, that the prisoner was under the impression that the prosecutors had been throwing stones at him.
The jury found him guilty of an assault occasioning actual bodily harm, one of the jurors in answer to his Worship amidst much laughter, stating that they had come to that decision without being influenced either by Mr. O'Hea's eloquent speeches or his worship's able charge.
The Court sentenced the prisoner to twelve months imprisonment at hard labour, observing that in his experience as Assistant Barrister for 20 years in this and the adjoining County he had never heard of a more unprovoked assault. Previous to that case he could assert that it was as safe to walk the roads of this county at night as the high streets of London in the day time, and that it was his duty, by the sentence in this case, to prevent such a thing occurring again.
|RIOT AND ASSAULT AT AHERINA.|
| John Murphy, Michael Murphy, Cain Mahony, Jeremiah Ahern, and John Brien, respectable farmers from Aherina, pleaded guilty to a riot and assault on another farmer named John Sullivan.
The prosecutor stated that he did not wish them to be punished as they had paid him £6 10s. as compensation.
The Court sentenced them to two months imprisonment each, with the exception of Cain Mahoney, who was sentenced to one month, Mr. Browne and Mr. Aylmer stating that the public peace should also be protected as well as the private injuries of individuals, and that offences of the kind were getting frequent in the country.

| Cork, 2d September, 1856.|
| The attention of our readers must have been attracted to numerous cases of accidental poisoning, from mistakes in dispensing drugs. Many persons have lost friends by mistakes made by nurse-tenders and others, in administering liniments for medicines intended for internal administration. To prevent such accidents proposals of various kinds have been made from time to time, and the subject has engaged the attention not alone of the medical profession, but the public in this country and abroad. All the plans hitherto proposed referred to the careful labelling of bottles, or to different coloured bottles being used for the more active and dangerous medicines. But the Irish College of Physicians have devised a totally new, and yet more simple, and, certainly, more efficacious plan than hitherto even thought of, viz. :
1. That angular bottles or vessels, and none others, be employed in the dispensing of all medicines intended for external use.
2. That round bottles or vessels, and none others, be employed in the dispensing of all medicines intended for internal use.
The public should know of this safeguard against dangerous accidents ; and, as a duty to themselves, see that it be at once adopted.Evening Post.
|ACCIDENT.Yesterday a lad named Sam Houlahan, while gathering potatoes in a field at Blackpool, incautiously stepped over the face of the tunnel of the Great Southern and Western Railway, and fell a distance of between forty and fifty feet.

|OUTRAGE AT THE DISTRICT LUNATIC ASYLUM, CLONMEL.|
| On Saturday, 27th instant, four ruffians crossed the Asylum wall for the purpose of plunder. The watchdog gave the alarm and the watchman immediately challenged them ; they set upon him, and after a gallant defence on his part, in which he desparately wounded one of the party, they succeeded in overpowering him they beat him in such a frightful manner, fracturing his skull and wounding him in several places, that he lies at the Asylum in a hopeless state. The wounds inflicted on some of the scoundrels by the brave defence of Ryan, the watchman, led to the apprehension of the entire gang by Constable Goulden, of the Irishtown police.|
|FURTHER PARTICULARSDEATH OF THE CARETAKER.|
| We regret to say that the unfortunate victim of the above recounted outrage, after lingering in great agony, died last evening of the wounds he received. An inquest was held on his body this afternoon by James J. Shee, Esq., (Coroner), assisted by Alderman Hackett, J.P., when the following facts were deposed to:
John Mulligan, hall-porter, examinedstated that he was speaking to the deceased at half-past five o'clock on Saturday evening, he was then about going on duty as watchman on the farm. His hours of duty were from six o'clock in the evening till six o'clock in the following morning, at which hour it was customary with him to ring the hall bell to awaken the witness. In consequence of his not having done so, witness proceeded to the farm and searched the farm house and a portion of the land for the deceased. On entering the potato field he observed that the ridges were rooted up, and looking across the field he saw the body of a man lying near the wall ; on crossing over he discovered the body of the deceased, who said, in a faint voice, that he was nearly killed. He was cut severely about the head and face ; he was lying on his right shoulder on three bags of potatoes ; there was a great quantity of blood about the place, and on the man's head, face, and shoulders. Witness went at once for assistance, and deceased was carried to the Asylum, where he was attended by Dr. Flynn, while Dr. Shiel was being sent for. Deceased was a sober, well-conducted man, and was employed as a watchman in the establishment for the last eighteen months.
To a JurorHe had not a sword when I saw him on Saturday evening ; it was usual for him to have one when on duty ; I did not see the sword the next morning.
Some other witnesses having been examined, Dr. Sheil deposed that death was consequent on the severe cuts and fractures of the skull inflicted on the deceased.
The Coroner addressed the jury at considerable length who recorded a verdict of wilful murder against some person or persons unknown.
Constable Gordon, immediately on receiving information of the above outrage, was, without delay, on the track of the miscreants, and succeeded in capturing six persons named James Conway, Daniel Lynch, Michael Shea, Michael Hughes, Catherine Hughes, and John Sullivan, in the lodging house of Daniel Murphy, Irishtown. They were brought before G. J. Goold, R.M., who committed them for examination.
We understand His Worship the Mayor has caused the lodging house license to be withdrawn from Murphy.Free Press.

| A Court of Enquiry assembled at Fermoy on the 13th inst., to investigate a charge of the most serious nature, viz., misappropriation of the public stores to a large extent, preferred against Barrackmaster Major Daniels, by Barrack Sergeant Carey. Colonel Hadden, R.E., attended the court, the result of the investigation completely exonerating Major Daniels, and convicting the Barrack Sergeant of gross falsehood and malicious aspersions. Sergeant Carey was immediately suspended from his duties, and an order was received at Fermoy on the 22d inst. for his summary dismissal from the service. It is said that Carey brought this charge against a highly honourable and esteemed gentleman, because he had not been recommended to an appointment as Superior Barrack Sergeant.United Service Gazette.|
