|THE CASE OF STABBING.|
|AT three o'clock this morning Mrs. Cunningham, who was stabbed by her husband a few weeks since in the breast, died from the effects of the injuries then sustained by her. Yesterday, there had been a slight improvement in her, and, though her recovery was not expected, it was thought that she might be able to linger some time longer ; but her strength was exhausted, and her wounds were of too dreadfully painful a character to enable her to hold on to life. It seems that the husband was under the influence of drink on the occasion of his having stabbed her, and she herself frequently stated, that when he was sober his treatment of her was usually kind.|

| THE VALE OF THE BLACKWATER.The Rev. T. Cuyler, writing in the New York Independent, says :From Blarney is a short ride to Mallow, in the exquisite vale of the Blackwater. Oh! such a realm of loveliness! It was beautiful to heart-sickness. I longed to halt the train, and feed on the enchantment for hours. On this very landscape the eye of the poet Spenser once rested. From such scenes he drew his inspiration. Near Mallow he livedin old Kilcoleman Castleand there he entertained Sir Walter Raleigh as only one child of genius can entertain another. From this sylvan retreat he was forced to flee in 1598. Not far from Mallow now resides Lady Becher once celebrated as Miss O'Neill, the great tragic actress. It is a singular coincidence that the first living tragédienne should have the same name with one who presents sacred truth with more of dramatic vividness than any living preacher.|

MORE ORANGE OUTRAGES.
(From the Freeman Correspondent.)
| PORTADOWN, AUGUST 18.A riot of a party nature took place in this town about 11 o'clock on the night of the 16th inst., between some Protestants and Roman Catholics, in which a man named John Redmond, a carpenter, and of the latter persuasion, received a stab of a knife in the breast. The cause of the riot was that the Protestant party called out, To H--- with the Pope, when the other party cheered for Garryowen. The former party having gone back into town for a reinforcement, immediately returned, when assaults were made freely on both sides, but hearing the police were approaching, they dispersed in opposite directions.|
|A BOAT accident occurred ysterday evening at Queenstown, which, very fortunately, did not end fatally. As the Albert, railway steamer, was about leaving the pier at Queenstown to meet the half-past four train from Passage, a boat belonging to the Hawke, guardship, crossed her bows for the purpose of entering the dock near the Club-house. The steamer was at the time put in motion, and ran into the centre of the boat, capsizing it and its occupants. These were two officers and four men. Three of the latter and one of the officers swam to the dock, and the fourth sailor climbed on board the steamer ; but, seeing the second officer struggling in the water, he jumped off again and swam with him to shore. The injuries sustained by the parties were confined to their apparel.|

POLICE OFFICETHIS EVENING.
(Before the MAYOR, Messrs. REEVES and JOHNSON.)
|CAPTAIN SOMERVILLE, of Skibbereen, preferred a complaint against Patrick Driscoll, car driver, of having overcharged him. The prosecutor said that he had engaged the defendant to drive him from Cork to Tramore House. He remained there twenty minutes and then drove to Cleve Hill, and after a stay there drove back to Tramore House. The charge for all was 3s. 6d., and complainant paid that sum and gave him 6d. for himself. The defendant, however, was dissatisfied with what he had been paid, and claimed 4s. as the proper fare.
The defendant stated that he met Capt. Somerville at the Cork and Passage Railway terminus, and drove him and three ladies to Mr. O'Leary's, Parade, and waited there fifteen minutes for them.
Capt. SomervilleThat was particularly understood.
The defendant said he would not charge for it ; but his fare for the whole drive was 4s.
The Inspector of cars said that, at the outside the fare was no more than 3s.
The bench, accordingly, fined defendant 2s. 6d., including costs.
The Inspector summoned several carmen for being off their stands. Owing, however, to his representing that their conduct was generally good, the bench imposed only a small fine on each.
|CHARGE OF VIOLATION.|
| A woman named Julia Murphy, residing in Malachy's- lane, aged about 23, deaf, and by no means prepossessing, brought a charge of the above nature against Michael Brien, a rivetter, employed by Mr. Robinson, shipbuilder. The assault was alleged to have been committed on the evening of Monday last in the house in which complainant lived. The information stated that when Brien attempted to abuse the young woman she locked herself in her room ; that he burst in the lock, threw her on a bed, and succeeded in violating her.
Mr. Blake, who appeared for the complainant, said he believed the prisoner was prepared to marry the woman.
The MayorWell, I think it would be as good to postpone the case.
Mr. BlakeLet Constable Hosford go for the priest.
The MayorOh, postpone it until to-morrow.
Mr. BlakeWould your worship send the young lady down to him in the meantime?
The MayorIt is better to postpone it.
Constable HosfordI don't think the prisoner will be satisfied to marry her.
The case was finally postponed until to-morrow morning.
(From the Daily Express of this day.)
| The suspicions which we expressed about the Tuscarora have not, it seems, been unfounded. An unexpected discovery was made in Belfast on Tuesday which accounts for her restless and furtive movements. It is now evident that the authorities had reason to believe that she came into the Irish ports with some sinister object, and the Ajax was told off, like an able-bodied policeman for special duty, to watch her. In his presence she behaved irreprochably, as characters well known to the police generally do when they see the constable near, or perhaps get a peep at his baton peeping out of his pocket like an Armstrong gun at a port hole. Watching her opportunity, however, she slipped away from Kingstown, and, finding none of the force there ready to arrest her, she proceeded to take away surreptitiously a quantity of coal, which she had been, until then, vainly trying to obtain. She was detected before she had time to carry it off, and was ordered to leave the port within 24 hours. Now, seriously, this is an infraction of the law of neutral Powers, which requires the energetic interference of the Government. A vessel of war is only entitled once in three months to coal at a neutral port, and that for the purpose of proceeding home. The Tuscarora has obtained coal at a British port within the last three months, but instead of returning to America, has been lying in wait for Confederate ships. This is a gross violation of the neutrality laws, and is the less to be tolerated in the case of this vessel, which has been especially troublesome and insolentsetting defiance to the regulations of the British Government for the strict maintenance of neutrality, and yet loudly denouncing the Government, even in our own ports, for unfair and impartial dealing. There is a practical lesson to be drawn from this transgression, for, as we have already intimated, it shows the necessity for keeping a sufficient naval force stationed at the principal harbours, to enforce obedience to British law ; and the people of Belfast have just reason to complain that such an important port should be left unprotected.|
