|ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION IN THE COUNTY LIMERICK.|
| LIMERICK, MONDAY.This day the well disposed members of society have experienced another sensation shock by the announcement of a diabolical attempt at assassination, which was made yesterday upon a farmer, named Starkey, when returning home from Askeaton chapel, upon a car, accompanied by his wife, between one and two o'clock in the day. It appears they had not proceeded far outside the village when a shot was fired from nehind a ditch, but fortunately without taking effect, as Starkey saw the intending assassin, whose face was blackened, level the gun, upon which he flung himself back in the car, and thus preserved his life. When the shot was fired Starkey is said to have jumped over the ditch and engaged in combat with the ruffian, who, however, escaped. The police were promptly on the spot, and from a description given by Starkey, two persons were soon after arrested. Starkey is land agent to the Messrs. Murphy, of Cork. A preliminary investigation is being held at Askeaton by the magistrates this day, which Mr. Hill, County Inspector, left Limerick to attend. The spirit of agrarianism for which our county was remarkable about this period in 1862, when Mr. Fitzgerald was so barbariously murdered near his residence at Kilmallock, seems to have revived, as at the petty sessions held at the latter place, on Friday last, two men (farmers) named Nunan, were committed to the county jail for nine months, in default of bail, for threatening to procure the assassination of a certain landed proprietor.|

| ANOTHER MURDER IN MARYLEBONE.John Eames, who was stabbed by a labourer named Timothy Murphy on the 19th of April, and for which offence the latter now stands remanded, died at St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington, on Saturday. On the day the affair happened Eames went to the Brazen Head public-house, Lisson-street, and there saw the prisoner whom he knew, but with whom he had never quarrelled. While Eames was at the bar Murphy pulled out a knife, which he sharpened on his boot, and exclaimed, I'll run it in, but did not mention any name. Murphy left the place, and was followed by Eames, who said, Did you mean that knife for me? The prisoner replied, Yes, or anybody else who comes near me. He then opened the weapon and stabbed Eames in the lower part of the stomach. The wounded man was conveyed to the hospital, where he died as stated.
