|DREADFUL MURDER AT NENAGH.|
|WE have just been handed by a respectable fellow- citizen a letter from Nenagh, dated the 5th (yesterday), from which we extract the following:
There is quite a melancholy thrown over the town this day by the brutal murder of ANDREW JACKSON, of Mountpleasant. He left his house yesterday morning in slippers as usual, and never was seen afterwards, until about two o'clock this morning, when he was found in a grove, within a few yards of his own door, with his skull broken and his brains protruding. This is all that is known of the foul deed up to the time I write. An inquest will be held to-morrow. Poor fellow, he was a close, honest man, and I never heard anything against him.
We learn from the gentleman who handed us the letter that Mr. JACKSON was a gentleman of considerable property, the son of the late Major Jackson. In character and demeanour he was very inoffensive. Not many years since he was married to a young lady of great beauty, a Miss SMITHWICK, whose destiny it seems to have to mourn tragic occurrences. She is sister of Miss SMITHWICK whose fate excited the widest public sympathy a few years since. When walking by the Puffin Hole, at Kilkee, in company with Colonel PEPPER, to whom she was engaged to be married, a wave from the treacherous cavern engulphed her and her lover at once.

THE OFFICE OF LORD HIGH STEWARD OF IRELAND.
HOUSE OF LORDS, JUNE 4.
| Their Lordships sat this morning to take into consideration the claim of Henry John, Earl of Shrewsbury and Talbot, and Earl of Waterford, in Ireland, to the office and dignity of Lord High Steward of Ireland, as being attached to his other titles.
Mr. Hannen appeared for the claimant, and the Attorney-General watched the case on behalf the Crown.
It appeared that this office was attached to the titles of Earl of Shrewsbury and Talbot and Earl of Waterford, and the claimant, having some time since duly made out his claim to those titles, now prayed that it might be declared that he was also Lord High Steward of Ireland.
After the production of some documentary evidence, their Lordships decided that the claimant had satisfactorily made out his claim.

PAINFUL SUICIDE OF A SHIP'S CAPTAIN IN THE REGENT'S CANAL.
| On Wednesday Mr. H. Raffles Walthew, deputy coroner, held an inquiry at the Prince of Wales Tavern, Victoria Park, respecting the death of Captain George William Harper, aged 44 years, who committed suicide under very melancholy circumstances.
J. Russell, engine driver, said, that last Friday morning was walking along the banks of the Regent's Canal when he noticed the deceased floating on the surface. The body was got out. When searched the portrait of a young lady was found in one of the pockets. It was a photograph. There was also the following letter, the edges of which were burned:
| Martha,Through what I have been accused of I have been driven to commit this dreadful act. May God have mercy on my soul, and conduct you in the paths of virtue. Adieu from me in this world.G.H.
Witness said that there were also some receipts for money received found in deceased's pockets, but only 6d. in money.
Mr. J. I. Brown, 32, Willow-walk, East Bermondsey, contractor, said that deceased had been the captain of a ship trading from London to China. Two or three years ago he got sunstroke in Hong Kong which affected his sight. He came to witness when he returned and told him that he had a few hundred pounds, and that he would invest it in a shop. He took a pawnbroker's shop in Grundy-street, Poplar, but it failed. He called on witness a few days ago, and said that he was ruined. His loss of sight and his failure caused him to lose his mind. He said he would drown himself. He had a wife and three children, but they left him four months ago, and went to Passage, in Ireland. Since then he was accused of forming an improper intimacy with the young lady whose portrait was found on him. Witness did not know who that lady was. The quarrel with his wife did not arise out of that affair. Deceased had been the captain of some of the finest ships in the port of London. Witness did not know of his own knowledge the details of the affair with the young lady, but deceased was said to have caused her to become enciente.
Mr. E. Myhill Davey, M.R.C.S., said that he was sent for on last Friday morning, and found the deceased dead on the bank. He had been in the water apparently about two hours.
The Coroner then summed up and remarked upon the deplorable circumstances of the case.
The jury returned a verdict of suicide while of unsound mind.
MORE ORANGE DISPLAYS.
| HILLSBOROUGH, JUNE 3.Another Orange demonstration took place in Loughbrickland, in this county [Down], yesterday, when over 100 Orangemen, with fifes and drums, marched through the town playing tunes. On leaving they flung a stone through the window of a house belonging to Patrick Manahan, and also flung stones at the police, who followed them for the purpose of identifying some of them, but they were all strangers, and came from the direction of Scarva. I did not hear if any of the police were injured. Freeman.|
