PICKING POCKETS.—At the Police Office, this morning, Margaret Ryan, a Tipperary woman, who had been remanded on a former occasion, was put forward charged with picking the pocket of a woman named Coleman. Mrs. Coleman stated that she was in Mr. Thornton's pawn-office on last Saturday when she felt her right-hand pocket cut off. She turned round at once and charged the prisoner, who was standing next her at the time, with the theft. The prisoner was the only person in the shop at the time that could have cut pocket. The prisoner dropped some coppers out of her hand. Mr. Thornhill [sic] said that he had heard the prisoner drop a scissors, with which he supposed she had cut complainant's pocket.

   SHIPWRECK OF THE GERMAN EMIGRANT SHIP WILHELMSBURG. —It has been briefly announced that an emigrant vessel which left Hamburg for Australia a short time since with about four hundred persons on board, was lost on the coast of Holland during the recent storms, and that nearly every soul on board perished. One of the few survivors has furnished the following narrative of the wreck :—“You will have heard that the Hamburg ship Wilhelmsburg, Captain Gross, belonging to the house of Godeffroy and Son, was lost on the coast of Holland and that few lives were saved. Among those few I am one, and there are also fifteen of the crew saved, and about twenty-five of the passengers. About three hundred men were drowned or died in the terrible night from Thursday to Friday, and among these were the captain and the aged doctor. All who were in the fore part of the vessel and 'tween decks were drowned, as the one sank with all who were there and the other was full of water. Thus two hundred and fifty lives were sacrificed to the waves in the space of a few minutes. Of the three hundred passengers only twenty-four men and one woman were saved, and, with the remnant of the crew, are reduced to a state of utter destitution.”

A SERIES of foot and donkey races took place at Castletownroche on St. Stephen's Day, which gave great amusement to a large number of persons attracted from the town and neighbourhood to witness them. The Castletownroche brass band was on the ground, and, by its efforts added considerably to the liveliness of the scene. The foot races came off first. The first consisted of two heats over about 800 yards, for which ten started. Only two, however—Daniel Sullivan and John Lombard—contested the race with any closeness, and the prize, 12s. 6d., had to be divided between them. For the second race eight started, and the winner, John Sheppard, received a silk hat. The next was a donkey race, which excited much amusement, the prize being carried off by F. Reynolds. A series of athletic feats followed. At throwing the half-cwt. James Redding carried off the prize—10s.— having thrown the weight 16 feet. At a running hop, step and jump, James Roche covered 34 feet of ground, which was the longest jump ; prize 5s. The pole and leg of mutton concluded the sports of the day ; but as the ascent of the pole proved too difficult for the most expert of the competitors, the leg of mutton had finally to be run for, and was won by John Foley. The sport was altogether very pleasant, and reflected great credit on its organizers.

   PEDESTRIANISM.—A very large concourse of spectators assembled at the West London Cricket Ground yesterday afternoon, for the purpose of witnessing a five-mile walking match between James Miles of Brixton, and William Hatley of the City, for £25 a-side. The men started at twelve minutes past four o'clock, Hatley completing the first quarter of a mile in 1 minute 44 seconds, with a lead of about two yards. The first mile was finished in 7 minutes 45 seconds, Hatley still in the same position. On the completion of the second mile (time 16 minutes 9 seconds), Hatley broke away from his opponent, but they again closed together, and so continued until they entered the straight to complete the third mile, when Miles passed the post with a lead of about a dozen yards (time 24 minutes 37 seconds). Hatley struggled on, but could never get within fifty yards of Miles, and at the conclusion of the fourth mile gave up the contest. The four miles were done in 33 minutes 8 seconds, no time being taken for the last one.

   Sir Robert Peel visited the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy, but, vacation having been given, he could not see the schools. There has been a series of entertainments at Loughcooter Castle during the week.—Galway Vindicator.
   Sir Robert Peel, when passing through Gort, from Loughcooter Castle, visited the workhouse, and was much pleased with the order and regularity of the establishment. He asked if the paupers were ordered a meat dinner on Christmas day. He was told that they were ; he then gave £2 to get them a drink on that day after dinner. On the board meeting later in the day the chair was taken by Arthur Alexander, D.V.C., who ordered that, instead of giving drink on that day, they allowed another meat dinner on some day during the holidays, and that the guardians pay the difference.
