Wallis has erected at great expense.

DEATH BY DROWNING.—On Monday evening a man named Matt Sullivan met his death in rather a curious manner. It appears he was seen to ride a horse to water. In a short time after the horse returned without the rider, and a search being made for his body it was found at the bottom of a hole where persons usually water their horses. An inquest was held on the body to-day.—Tralee Correspondent.

YESTERDAY, the St. George, s.s., one of the line of the vessels belonging to the Montreal Ocean Steamship Company, put into Queenstown for the purpose of receiving on board passengers for Quebec, to which port she was proceeding. She had on board over eighty passengers, which she had taken in at Glasgow, and about twenty of them travelled first class. The remaining number were composed of the artisan and agricultural, almost exclusively Scotch. At four o'clock, the passengers, eighty-three in number, for which the St. George had put in, were received on board, and at six o'clock the vessel steamed out of harbour. The St. George is a first-class passenger vessel, possessing the two prime qualities of quickness and steadiness, with every possible accomodation, and commanded by officers both courteous and attentive.
   Frances Anne, Marchioness of Londonderry, is receiving a succession of visits at Garron Tower, County Antrim.
SEVERAL persons have received, during the past two days, injuries, more or less severe, from the practice pursued by boys and young lads of throwing stones at each other by way of amusement.
   Yesterday a little fellow named Cotter was sitting near the shop window of Mr. Mulcahy, stationer, Patrick- street, when a dog which had been lounging about the place leaped on him and bit the child over the eye, inflicting a severe wound and causing the blood to flow profusely. The boy was taken to the North Infirmary, where the wound was dressed.
   A woman named Mary Nagle of Ballinlough, was brought, yesterday, to the North Infirmary, having been seriously cut in the head the night before, in a faction fight. She, it seems, was going home when she got between two contending factions, and unfortunately a stone thrown from one of them struck her on the head, inflicting a serious scalp wound.

   The following appointments were made on Saturday at the Admiralty :—John Coogan, surgeon to the Curlew ; Alexander Dalgleish has been nominated to a naval cadetship ; John Wood, in the Spider, confirmed as second-class assist.-engineer ; James Edmonds, in the Satellite, confirmed as second-class assist.- engineer ; and W. R. B. Braving, in the Ajax, confirmed as second-class assist.-engineer.
   The Right Hon. Sir Thomas Esmonde and Lady Esmonde gave a splendid dejeuner to the Prince Doria Pamphili, Prince Giovanni, Princess Guendalina, &c., and large party, on Tuesday, at Johnstown Castle.

ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.—An attempt at suicide was made last evening about six o'clock near Northgate Bridge by the wife of a man named O'Donoghue, a shoemaker. The woman was drunk at the time and having thrown herself into the river was quite unable to aid herself. She was carried helplessly along by the river, in which there was a slight freshet. Numbers of persons immediately collected along the quays, but no aid seems to have been attempted—nor, indeed, except by a very daring person was it possible to render it. When the woman had been carried down some distance, however, a young man named Sugrue, a porter at the Weighhouse, who happened to be passing along the quay observed her, and, having divested himself of his coat and waistcoat, dashed into the river in a most gallant manner and struck out to reach her. He shortly succeeded in doing so, but, as frequently happens in such cases, the drowning person was very near being the destruction of both herself and her preserver. She caught the young man and clung to him so desperately that had it not been for the exertion of great strength on the part of Sugrue both would have been drowned. While the struggle was proceeding in the water between the two, Mr. Jeremiah O'Sullivan, a young man engaged at Dr. Allen's, North Mall, succeeded in getting into a boat, which was a little farther down the river, and pulled quickly towards them. He succeeded in reaching them almost as death seemed inevitable to both, from the frantic exertions of the woman to cling on to her brave rescuer. They were both got into the boat, as well as Donoghue, the woman's husband, who had dashed into the water also when he heard of his wife's mad act, and fortunately before any of them had been long enough in the water to endanger life. The rescue thus accomplished by Sugrue was one of the most gallant it has been our fortune to record, and we anticipate that he will receive a reward for his conduct from the proper quarter.

YESTERDAY, Mr. Henry Barry, coroner, held an inquest on the body of a male child, in Queenstown. The only witnesses examined were a married woman named Walsh, and Dr. W. J. Cronin. Mrs. Walsh said that on Wednesday evening she was called into the house of Madame Lavelle, West View Terrace, and there saw a young woman named Margaret Mulcahy kneeling at the bed side, giving birth to a child. Dr. Cronin deposed that he had made a post mortem examination of the body of the child, and it was his opinion that it had never breathed. If proper and timely care had been taken, the child, he considered, would have been born alive. The jury, therefore, returned a verdict that death had taken place, owing to the want of such proper attention.

(Before the MAYOR, Messrs. PERRIER and M'NAMARA.)
JAMES BURTON, cook and steward of the ship Volunteer, was summoned by Capt. Douglas of this vessel for abusing and assaulting him on yesterday while under the influence of drink. He was fined 5s. or in default a week's imprisonment.
   John M'Sweeny was put forward, charged with being drunk on Pope's Quay on last night. Mr. Bible, builder, stated that he saw the prisoner drunk on last night ; he was blaspheming in a terrible manner, and struck a little child without any provocation. A fine of 5s. and costs was imposed.

ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE.—A woman named Ellen Haly, the wife of a blind man residing in Baily's-lane, attempted to commit suicide by cutting her throat, on yesterday morning. It appears that the poor woman had for some time past shown symptoms of insanity, and although closely watched, managed to get a razor into her possession. Her daughter slept in the same bed with her, and the latter being awakened by some noise about two o'clock, found that her mother had cut her throat almost from ear to ear. She was immediately carried to the North Infirmary, where she now lies in a dangerous state.
KANTURK.—The Very Rev. P. D. Canon O'Regan, in an address from the Altar on Last Sunday, emphatically denounced the unbecoming practice of indulging too freely in spiritous liquors at wakes or funerals. In the course of his remarks, Rev. Mr. O'Regan stated that the Hierarchy, at a meeting held some two years ago in Dublin, thought it necessary to pass a resolution debarring the clergy from officiating at any funeral when, at the wake, whiskey had been drunk. Latterly, in order to evade the terms of this law, some persons had used porter instead of whiskey. The Rev. Mr. O'Regan believed that such conduct was not carried out in the parish of Kanturk particularly, but would have his hearers to understand that henceforward no priest would officiate when any sort of liquor was distributed. The foregoing remarks seemed to elicit universal assent.—Kanturk Correspondent.

THIS amusement took place on Sunday last at Coolclough, a distance of two miles from Kanturk. The race excited an unusual amount of interest in the neighbourhood, and shortly after one o'clock the fields on which it was to be run were filled with large numbers of people, the entrances leading to the course being thronged with vehicles of every description. The hour appointed for the race was 4 o'clock, but long before that every hillock and ditch which commanded a good view was taken possession of by the immense crowds. The ground having been cleared, the competitors—John Reardon, alias Gunshot, and Denis Murphy, alias The Mountain Hare—were brought to the pole and were started to run an English mile, which was accomplished in four minutes, Gunshot beating his opponent by about forty yards. A number of the Kanturk constabulary were in attendance, but happily their services were not in requisition. The immense concourse (about three thousand people) dispersed in an orderly manner, paying due reverance to the blessed day which they were spending in harmless recreation. At the foot race which came off at Dromagh a short time since Mr. O'Leary, second son of Mr. John M'Cartie O'Leary, Coomlegane, ran against a young man named O'Keeffe, and after a sharp contest won cleverly. —Kanturk Correspondent.

BLACKGUARD ACT.—A freak of a most mischievous nature was perpetrated last night by some unknown parties, on the Mardyke. One of the railings at the top of the Dyke was forcibly torn up, and twisted in its position in a most absurd fashion, and two or three of the tops of the adjoining bars were also bent and injured in a very ludicrous style. The perpetrators of the act cannot have numbered less than half-a-dozen, as considerable violence must have been used to wrench the large iron bar from its place and twist it as has been done. Such conduct deserves the severest reprehension, and even punishment. The police suspect who the parties are.
ACCIDENT.—A young man named Michael Sullivan was brought to the South Infirmary on yesterday, suffering from severe internal injuries, which he had received from a fall off a loft in Mr. Creman's corn store, George's-street, where he was employed.

   The execution of William Robert Taylor, the murderer of Mr. Evan Mallor, of Manchester, and of John Ward, for the murder of Police-constable Jump, at Ashton, took place at noon, to-day (Saturday), in front of Kirkdale gaol. It was said that Taylor had left a written statement, and it afterwards appeared that Taylor's statement consisted only of letters to relatives. The crowd was immense, numbering from 50,000 to 60,000. Both men were calm, and before the execution uttered ejaculations of prayer. Taylor bowed three times to the crowd, and Ward, after throwing his cap against the mob, bowed also. Both died without a struggle.

   The O'Grady, D.L., Kilballyowen, died on Saturday about four o'clock, p.m., aged 76 years. The O'Grady's were a fine old Catholic family in days of yore. The deceased was remarkable for a sarcastic vein, in which he indulged to a great degree sometimes. He was of a peculiarly proud disposition. As a magistrate he was impartial, but latterly was too piquant on the bench, caused by advanced years. He felt proud of his name and ancestors. His ire was worked up to its height when the present Lady Guillamore had placed on the mausoleum of the Guillamore family, “The O'Grady Vault.” He wrote to her ladyship that if it was not removed, he would do so himself with a sledge. She placed the missive in the hands of her solicitor, who was on the most intimate terms with the O'Grady, and he wrote to the deceased, upon which he relinquished his threat. His son, Wm. Wyse O'Grady, Esq., who succeeds to the estates, has hitherto given great employment to the labourers about Kilballyowen.

ESCAPE FROM DROWNING.—A man named Cornelius Sullivan fell into the south channel of the river, near the City Clubhouse, last night, and would have drowned but for the assistance rendered by the passers by. Several people endeavoured to save him, and amongst the rest two men, who lowered themselves to the river's edge by chains, where one of them gave the drowning person his foot to hold on by. This he managed to do, but let it go again, and was swept along with the tide. Eventually a lifebuoy was thrown to him, which he caught hold of, and was thus rescued. The man was drunk at the time.
ACCIDENTS.—A woman named Dineen called at the North Infirmary last night about eleven o'clock, having received a severe cut on the head in a street row in Blarney-lane. Thw wound was dressed and the woman remained all night in the Infirmary. A boy named Lewis Wright got his hand badly crushed yesterday while employed at the steam engine in Messrs. Newsom and Wright's establishment. It was dressed at the North Infirmary. At about a quarter past 6 o'clock yesterday evening a carpenter named Patrick Horgan broke his collar-bone by falling from one floor of a house to another. Horgan lives at Ballincollig, but was staying in this city, having obtained employment from Mr. O'Keeffe, and yesterday as he was assisting on laying the boards of the first floor of a house in Barrack-street, he stepped upon some planks that were unfixed, and which gave way under him. He fell through and alighted on his left shoulder, breaking his collar-bone. The distance he fell was about ten feet. He was conveyed to the North Infirmary, where the fracture was set.
RAILWAY ACCIDENTS.—During the year 1861, 284 persons were killed, and 883 injured by accidents, on railways in the United Kingdom. Of this number, 216 were killed, and 836 injured in England and Wales ; 39 were killed, and the same number injured in Scotland, and 29 were killed, and 8 injured in Ireland. Forty-six passengers were killed and 781 injured from causes beyond their own control.

   A TRAWLER RUN DOWN BY A STEAMER IN THE CHANNEL. —About 11 o'clock a.m. on Thursday, as the trawler Christiana, of Dublin, the property of Mr. Good, was trawling on the fishing ground, outside the Kish Bank, at a place called the “Bruad,” she was run into by the steamer Pladda, bound from Cork to Glasgow with a general cargo, and sunk. The steamer struck her right aft, and she went down in deep water stern foremost. The crew were all saved by the yawl of the Hawk, pilot, that was close by, and put on board the steamer, when she immediately steered for Kingstown and landed two men, named Timothy Ratley and Patrick Kirwan, and a boy. The skipper of the Christiana, named Charles Byrne, who is reported to be in an exhausted state through fright, and the remaining hand, James Sims, have been taken to Glasgow in the Pladda. The loss sustained by Mr. Good in the collision is computed at about £850. It is stated there was no lookout on board the steamer.—Freeman.
   M. VEILLARD AND THE HON. MR. CADOGAN.—As stated briefly in our impression of Saturday, a meeting was held on Wednesday of the creditors of M. Constant Veillard, of the French refreshment department, International Exhibition. The statements of accounts show liabilities to the amount of £27,616, while the assets are estimated at £7,253, showing 5s. 3d. in the pound. A dividend of 5s. is expected to be realized. The plant and good-will of the business have been disposed of to Mr. Morrish, of the English refreshment department, for the sum of £8,000. The deficiency shown in the balance-sheet is £20,363 ; the capital at the commencement of business was £591, and the gross profits have been £21,284 (total, £42,238). This is accounted for by preliminary expenses, £10,234 ; general and currented expenses, £24,267 ; and the difference (£7,737) between the cost of the plant and what it sold for to Mr. Morrish. M. Veillard's total receipts have been £73,600. Considerable discussion arose with reference to a sum of £2,000 paid to the Hon. F. Cadogan, for obtaining for M. Veillard, as it was stated, the contract for the French refreshment department. Mr. Cadogan claims a further sum of £919, which the creditors seem disposed to resist. The books are in arrear. Proceedings have already been commenced in bankruptcy. It was resolved that the affairs of the estate should be wound up under a deed of arrangement, to be registered under the Bankruptcy Act.
   The O'Grady, D.L., refused the ministration of the Protestant clergyman before his decease. This is a fact vouched for, and it is further attested that he was pressed, but declined to receive any remarks from the minister. The ancestor of The O'Grady came to visit Kilballyown, or rather Knockaney, the seat of Desmond, who admired the proud steed ridden by O'Grady. Desmond proposed to buy, but the former would not sell, stating he may accept of the horse as a present. This was in the fifteenth century, and ever since the O'Grady family occupy Kilballyown, the dwelling of which is a beautiful mansion. So says tradition.—Limerick Reporter.

   ANOTHER THREATENING LETTER.—We have just heard that Mr. Shane, a gentleman who lately came to reside at Hermitage, within about three miles of Nenagh, this (Wednesday) morning received one of those “friendly missives,” threatening him that if he did not leave the place at once, to prepare his coffin, as he would get the death of Braddell, alleging as a motive that he was of no use in the neighbourhood, not having given any employment to the people in the locality. It is a dreadful state of society that a man cannot reside in the country without being made the target for the assassin's bullet. We hope that no efforts will be spared by the constabulary to bring the writer of the letter to justice.—Nenagh Guardian.

   As the Tuskar steam-ship, of and from Glasgow for Waterford, was coming up that harbour on Tuesday morning at three a.m., without a pilot on board, she ran into a Passage fishing yawl off Credan Head which she sunk, and one of the crew named Maurice Barnes was drowned. The remainder were picked up in a very exhausted state. The yawl was the property of a Passage man named Organ.—Freeman.

A SPLENDID ship, the Mac Duff, of Banff, 1138 tons, arrived in the harbour yesterday evening, short of provisions, and windbound. The Mac Duff comes from Bombay, with a large cargo of cotton and seeds ; she is bound for Liverpool, whither she proceeds as soon as the wind, now easterly, will suit. The passage was made from Bombay in 142 days, and when seven days out the captain (Blacklock) died suddenly, when the command of the vessel devolved on the chief officer, Mr. Dickinson, by whom she was safely navigated to Queenstown.
   The case of the Cattarina V., an Austrian ship, brought into port here by the mate of the ship Mornington, has been finally settled. The circumstances of the voyage have already been published ; the mate and the captain had died, and the crew, unable to navigate the vessel, obtained the services of the mate of the Mornington, then passing, by whom the Cattarina V. made Queenstown. The arrangements are :—The owners of the latter vessel are to pay the owners of the Mornington £1,000, and defray all costs. Possession was accordingly given up to-day by Mr. R. O'Brien, and the vessel proceeds immediately to Bristol.

   FATAL HARE HUNT ON A RAILWAY.—SIX VALUABLE HOUNDS KILLED. On Thursday last the Elstrow harriers, belonging to Turner A. Macan, Esq., were pursuing a hare, which took the lines of the Cambridge and Bedford Railway, about five miles from Bedford. They followed on the railway, when the train which leaves Cambridge at 10.10, a.m. was discovered coming at a brisk rate.—The huntsmen and gentlemen followed by the side of the railway, and endeavoured to call off the dogs, but without success, the dogs going at full speed after the hare. Quickly the engine ran upon the track of the pack, instantly killing five dogs, sending their remains in all directions, the engine carrying away a good portion of a carcase which was fixed in one of its wheels ; the leg of the sixth dog was cut off, so that the poor animal had afterwards to be shot. The hare escaped, as did all the horsemen.

   MURDER OF A SHIPMASTER.—Mr. Sprague, a shipmaster, belonging to Brixham, near North Shields, died in North Shields yesterday morning from the effects of a fracture of the skull and other injuries which he received on Sunday night, in the Borough-road, in this town, while attacked by a man and a woman. The police are on the track of the murderers. A desperate highway robbery was committed upon Mr. Erakine Mather, near the same place, on Thursday night. He was robbed of his gold watch, and ill-used. The robbers, four men, are in custody. —Manchester Examiner.
   HEARTLESS CASE OF CHILD DESERTION.—Two little children, who state their names to be William and Topsy Taylor, and whose ages respectively are, the boy twelve, and the girl eight years—were found on Friday hungry, tired, and footsore, at Bath ; and having attracted the notice of some kind-hearted citizens, they were interrogated as to who and what they were, and how they came to be wanderers unaccompanied by any one to take care of them. They gave their names as above, and said they belonged to Cardiff. Their story was that their father brought them to Bristol, and, having kissed them, and given them a farthing, told them to walk to London. They stated that they walked all the way to Bath, and their statement is to a great extent confirmed by the fact of their having been met on the road by one of the county police. A benevolent lady in Bristol has fed and sheltered them temporarily, and the police are making enquiries after the hard hearted parent.

   ACCIDENTS.—On last Sunday a woman named Mary Woods, of Evergreen, was brought to the South Infirmary with a broken arm. She stated that her husband had thrown a large block of wood at her, which inflicted the injury. Denis Crowley, of Dominick-street, was brought to the North Infirmary with some severe cuts in the forehead, received by the blow of a stone. On Monday night last Julia Burke, a woman of the town, was stabbed by a sailor in the arm. She was carried to the North Infirmary. On the same night Ellen Hamilton was carried to the same institution with some severe wounds of the face and head received in a drunken row. On Sunday night Maurice Condon, a gingleman, while returning with some tourists from Kilcrea Alley [sic], drove his car into a ditch by the side of the road, oversetting it. The persons on the car escaped without serious injury except Condon, who was picked up insensible, put into the car, and driven to the North Infirmary. On arriving there Dr. Golding, the acting house surgeon, examined him and discovered that he had broken his upper jaw and two of his ribs, and received some other injuries. He now lies at the South Infirmary.
   COFFEE AS MADE IN INDIA.—Take a ¼lb. of coffee roasted and ground, put it into a jug, and pour over it seven or eight cupfuls of water boiling ; stir it for some minutes until the froth is gone, then cover the jug up close with a towel folded several times to keep in the steam, and let it stand twelve hours ; then pour it off, and it will be quite clear, and may be heated as required, but never boil it. It will keep several days. Note.—It is best to have a jug that holds the quantity of water, and then pour it out of the kettle boiling on the coffee. The grounds are an acceptable gift to the poor.—The Grocer.

ERRATUM.—In our obituary column of yesterday an announcement was copied from a Dublin contemporary, of the death of Mr. PATRICK G. WALSH, which stated the rank of the deceased as Chief Officer of the Roscoe. This was erroneous, and was copied by accident into our journal, in which the correct statement had formerly appeared, and which recorded the death of Mr. P. G. WALSH “Captain of the ship Roscoe.” The deceased was a fine young man, aged 25 years, who was selected by the owners of that vessel to run the blockade with her. Since his death Captain WALSH'S father, Mr. O'B. WALSH, of Midleton, received a letter from the owners expressive of the regret they experienced at his loss.

   M. Verdi, the celebrated composer, has left Paris for St. Petersburg, to superintend the arrangements for his new opera, “La Forza del Destino.”
A WOMAN was brought up in custody before the Thurles Petty Sessions Court, on last Saturday, charged with having deserted her illegitimate child, and left it at the Thurles Workhouse gate. In consequence of having given herself up and claimed the child, she was let free ; at the same time the magistrates told her that if she lodged information against the father he would have to support the child in the workhouse ; but she declined doing so, giving as an excuse that she didn't know where the father was. She is now in the Thurles Workhouse. When a person of this kind refuses to lodge information against the putative father, is it not strange that there is no provision for the authorities to act upon? —Correspondent.

   TRIAL FOR LIBEL.—Mr. Andrew Gray, the reporter convicted on Tuesday for libel, was yesterday sentenced to pay a fine of £50, and to be imprisoned until it was paid.
