YESTERDAY, in Courtney's-lane, Mr. Coroner Gallwey held an inquest into circumstances attending the death of a pointsman named Timothy Sweeney, the particulars of which appeared in Monday's Examiner. The evidence was as follows:—
   John Johnston, fireman, stated that on Monday morning he was on the engine of the good's train from Cork which arrived at the Tivoli station about 20 minutes past nine intending to attach a truck of rails ; deceased at the time was near the track and signalled to have the engine come back to it ; witness had the break [sic] on the engine and could have stopped it immediately ; deceased gave the signal to come close, he standing at the time near the truck ; the buffers of the engine were also close to it ; as the engine approached very slowly deceased, instead of getting out on the road as he should have done, remained where he was when he gave the signal ; the buffers then met, and so lightly that witness did not consider that any accident could have occurred ; the driver called out to know if all were right, but receiving no answer called out again and then with witness jumped off the engine and found deceased lying on the line between the rails, apparently dead.
   Witness, in reply to the coroner, said that deceased was not in his proper place when the accident occurred.
   To Mr. Jameson—The rails projected over the buffer.
   William Lawless, engine-driver, deposed that on the morning in question he told Sweeney, on arriving at Tivoly [sic], that he was going to clear the siding, to which deceased replied that he (witness) would have to bring the truck off himself as there were no men there to do so ; went in on the siding, and when nearing the truck saw Sweeney cross in upon the siding where the truck was ; when the engine came up so close as to allow the truck be attached witness stopped, being under the impression that deceased was about attaching it ; not receiving an answer to his question “if all were right” he leaped off the engine and found Sweeney lying between the rails ; Sweeney was dead at the time.
   Dr. James Curtis described the nature of the wounds deceased received. All the bones from the left eye to the back of the head were broken ; these injuries were the cause of death.
   The Cornoner having summed up the evidence,
   The Jury consulted, and after a good deal of deliberation returned the following verdict:—
   “That the said deceased Timothy Sweeney was killed on the 19th of January, 1863, having been crushed between a waggon and engine on the Youghal and Queenstown Railway, at Tivoli, in the borough of Cork, and we think the Company censurable for allowing the iron rails to project over the front of the waggon. We strongly beg to recommend the family of the deceased to the consideration of the company.”
   The Coroner hoped that the company would act on the recommendation of the jury.
   Mr. T. L. Jameson, solicitor, and Mr. Trew, assistant-secretary, watched the proceedings on behalf of the company.

   The destruction of property by the late gales has been so great, that at present it would be impossible to give anything like a correct number of the casualties. It is offically reported that the shipping in the river, the docks and other places, was extensively damaged, and in the Thames sundry small craft were forced from their moorings, and carried away by the force of the wind.
   An account from Dover, dated yesterday, states that during the high tide at 11 a.m., the footpath fronting Marine Parade, and from thence to Eastcliffe has been covered to a depth of 15 feet, and it is imagined such another tide will carry away some portion of the carriage drive. The camp posts that once marked the frequented promenades now stand thirty to forty feet out at sea.

MR. DANIEL THOMAS LAMIE, of Rock Terrace, Midleton, in this county, was, on the 23rd day of January, 1863, sworn in as an Attorney of her Majesty's superior Courts of Common Law in Ireland, and also admitted a Solicitor of her Majesty's Court of Chancery on same day.
   BANTRY, JAN. 29 [sic].—I find Mr. Barrett did not bring the wounded man to his house, but had him supplied from it with everything such as wine, fowl, groceries, bread, &c., which is still continued to him by Mr. Barrett's orders, in the Bantry bridewell, where he was lodged on Friday last. His wife and his young children are allowed into the bridewell with him. He is in a very weak state from loss of blood. Two doctors attended him. They say the bone is unbroken, although the ball passed through the arm. To see where it entered, and came out, one is surprised that it did not pass through the bone. The ball of the second shot grazed his abdomen, cutting the flesh in its passage. He had a narrow escape—if he escapes the law as well, he will be a lucky fellow.
   Three others named Riely, from the neighbourhood of Macroom, father, son and daughter, have been brought here yesterday and lodged in gaol as accomplices. The police are in full possession of all the gang of burglars did, and intended doing had they not been stopped so timely. —A Correspondent.
(From another Correspondent.)
THREE of M'Gee's accomplices were arrested last night within three miles of Macroom. Mr. Barrett receiving informations as their whereabouts, called on Constable Gearan and his party, of Coosane, to execute a warrant and arrest them, and though Gearin and his men were for three days and nights previously on guard, watching the wounded man at Kemineagh until removed to Bantry this day by the doctor's advice, they instantly volunteered the duty, and Gearan and Kelly started on the journey. They reached Mount Music, near Macroom, at two o'clock on Wednesday morning, and succeeded in arresting James Riely, Daniel Riely, and Jane Riely, who are now safely lodged in Bantry, charged on sworn information with being accomplices in the various robberies committed in Muskerry during the past month on Sir A. Warren, Rev. Mr. Jellet, Rev. Mr. M'Clintock, Miss Sullivan, Kilmurry, &c., &c.
