DUNGARVAN, MARCH 31ST, 1861.—On Friday last, about 12 o'clock, the brigantine Swallow, of this port, left Bonmahon, where she had been to take in a cargo of copper-ore. Whilst sailing out of the bay the wind blew so strong that it became necessary to reef the mainsail. The captain, John Mulcahy, who was at dinner at the time, gave directions to the men to that effect, but, finding them slow in the performance of the work, came on deck to render them assistance. Whilst so engaged the boom of the mainsail struck him and knocked him overboard. The crew immediately proceeded to launch the boat, but having lowered her on the weather side of the vessel, she was broken to pieces, which deprived them of the means to save the captain's life. He remained for a considerable time over water, but, no assistance having reached him, he sank to rise no more.
   Mulcahy was a native of Abbeyside, and during life supported an excellent character. He was an honest, sober, and hard-working seaman ; and by his death leaves a wife and five helpless children to mourn his untimely end. An effort will be made to do something towards aiding those he has left destitute, and for that purpose a committee has been formed, whose names we shall publish in our next. The case is one really calling for the sympathy and aid of the charitable.

ACCIDENTS.—On Friday John M'Carthy, a van driver, in the employment of Mr. Sullivan, baker, was driving his employer's van, in the neighbourhood of Farren, when the horse took head, and M'Carthy was thrown from his seat, the consequence of which was a severe laceration of the thigh. He was taken to the North Infirmary. On Saturday a woman named Julia Keller was standing at her own door in Peacock Lane, when a cow which was being driven past by a boy suddenly ran at her, bucked her with its head and threw her down, and then trampled on her. The poor woman was taken, severely bruised, to the North Infirmary, but fortunately none of the injuries are of a dangerous character.

   Our readers must have seen with regret in our obituary of last week an announcement of the death of Dr. Larken, eldest son of our esteemed neighbour the rector of Burton, an event which has plunged the different members of his family in the deepest grief, and will, we are sure, draw forth the sympathies of the public generally, by whom the worthy rector has recommended himself by his catholic spirit and unostentatious and unsectarian philanthropy. The many virtues of the deceased had endeared him to a large circle of acquaintance, by whom the intelligence of his sudden removal, at the early age of 26, will be received with deep regret. Dr. Larken had been out about five years, had, during that time, been over nearly all Western India, and had voyaged many thousand miles by sea. He had been engaged against the rebels, and in the pursuit of Tantia Topee, and had been in action when, though a medical officer, he was called upon to defend his life like any other indivudual in the corps to which he was attached. His humanity in his attention to the sick and wounded was manifested on several occasions. It is well known by his friends that he would never leave a wounded man behind, either European or native, though the removal was attended with gratuitous labour at his own personal expense. Subsequently he was stationed at Aden for ten months, and had just returned to Bombay to take temporary charge of the hospital at that place when he caught the small-pox, and died after four days' illness, which, we are happy to learn, was alleviated by the kind care and attentions of a most devoted friend. Thus has been suddenly closed at its very outset a career which, from his attainments and attachment to his work, promised (had life been spared) to be a most brilliant one.—Lincoln Times.
INFORMATIONS were ordered at the Police-office, this morning, against a woman named Mary Murphy, for obtaining a piece of bacon from Mr. Martin, Prince's- street, under false pretenses. On Sunday, 3d of February, early in the morning, she called at the house of Mr. George Gibson, an apprentice to Mr. Dyas, Blackrock-road, and stated that the latter wanted to have a piece of bacon got for him from Mr. Martin. On this statement the bacon was given to her. It afterwards appeared that she was not sent by Mr. Dyas at all. A second charge was made against her for obtaining a nightdress from Mrs. Leighton, in the name of Mrs. Ahearn, Blackrock, for which informations were taken.

   VOLTAIRE.—The new number of the Westminster Review contains an admirable article on “Voltaire's Romances and their Moral,” which is said to be from the pen of Mr. Justin M'Carthy, formerly one of the reporting staff of the Liverpool Morning Times, and now one of the editors of the Morning Star and Dial. Those who enjoyed the pleasure of hearing Mr. M'Carthy's lectures on Moliere, Goethe, and Schiller, can well imagine how brilliantly and forcibly he has descanted on the genius of the great French satirist and philosopher.—L'pool Mercury.

   A BUNDLE OF QUERIES.—What is that which every man can divide, but no one can see where it has been divided? Water.—The transit across the English Channel is supposed to be the sic (k) transit alluded to in the well-known Latin quotation. Why is the rudder of a steamboat like a public hangman? Because it has a stern duty to perform. Why ought a lady's home-dress to last a long while? Because she never wears it out. What is the difference between a hen with a wing and a lion without a wing? A mere difference of a pinion. Why are authors who treat about physiognomy like soldiers? Because they write about face.
