   REGISTRATION OF BIRTHS—PROSECUTION UNDER THE NEW ACT.—At the last Petty Sessions for Tallow the presiding magistrates were engaged in investigating two cases under the new Compulsory Registration Act. The cases were brought forward by Dr. Burnett, district registrar, who charged two parties with a violation of the act in not registering the birth of their children within the time specified—namely, six months, an offence which subjected them to a fine of 40s. each. In the present instance proceedings were initiated more with a view of setting an example than of having a heavy fine inflicted, and their worships—at the request of the complainant—inflicted a nominal fine of 6d. and costs.

Dr. POWER presided.
PRESENT—Messrs. Joyce, O'Driscoll, Regan, O'Sullivan, Seymour, Spelman, Murphy.
   On the motion of Mr. Spelman, a sum of £5 was appropriated for providing three ladders to be kept at the market house for use in case of fire. He observed that if the meeting proposed by Captain Seymour to be held for the purpose of getting up a fire brigade, had taken place he would have been in a position to state that the local agents for one of the fire insurance companies was ready to subscribe liberally towards the expense.
   Mr. Murphy said that he had been instructed to the like effect by another local agent.
   The board soon after adjourned.

(Before Dr. POWER, Chairman ; Messrs. SEYMOUR and SCOTT.)
FIVE sailors belonging to the James Duncan, were charged by the captain with having absented themselves from duty without leave. They were sentenced—one to a week's, three to a fortnight's, and one to three weeks' imprisonment. The other cases were uninteresting, being principally proceedings for ejectment, in which Mr. C. P. Wallis appeared.

(Before Messrs. C. O'CONNELL, R.M. and A. M'CARTHY.)
John Kelleher v. Michael Riordan
THIS was a prosecution for trespass in pursuit of game, on complainant's lands, at Caherdooney, on the 25th of December last.
   Mr. R. Ashe, who appeared for complainant, examined William Kelleher who proved to having caught Riordan on the lands in question on the 25th of December, with a dog and gun.
   Mr. G. W. Allen cross-examined the witness, but no deviation was made by him from his direct evidence.
   Daniel Buckley was examined by Mr. Allen to prove that Riordan was not on these lands on the day mentioned, by the magistrates not being satisfied with the rebutting evidence, fined Riordan one pound.
   After the disposal of several assault cases and a police prosecution the Court rose.—Correspondent.

MR. MARSH put up this day for auction the interest in two dwelling-houses, old-established chandlery, timber, coal and iron stores, and tan yard, with goodwill &c., at present in the occupation of Mr. C. O'Leary, who is retiring from business. The first lot consisted of two dwelling-houses, with chandlery and yard, and goodwill of an excellent business, held by lease dated 4th January, 1841, under Lord Bantry, for 200 years, at the yearly rent of £8 10s. Mr. Hannigan, Bantry, became the purchaser at £150. The other lots, three in number, were withdrawn.

Martin v. Sexton.
   This was an action for the recovery of rent. The plaintiff had let a house to a Miss Lyons, in Old George's-street, on the recommendation of Mr. John Sexton. She did not pay the rent, and the action was brought by Mr. Martin against Mr. Sexton for the amount of the rent, the defendant having become responsible for its payment.
   The jury decided in favour of plaintiff.
   Mr. Blake appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. O'Halloran for defendant.

   A COTTAGE BURIED IN SNOW.—MIDDLETON-IN-CHIRBURY.—A most painful accident happened at this place early on Monday morning last. A huge mass of snow slid down the hill on which it rested, overwhelming the cottage of Richard Embrey, jun., and burying deep beneath its substance the sleeping inmates. No alarm was given until about six hours after the accident had happened, when the people in the next cottage, father and mother of Richard Embrey, looking out saw a mass of snow and thatch and broken walls in place of their son's cottage. The poor man was dug out alive, though much injured ; his wife and little boy were both dead. Great sympathy is felt by all in the neighbourhood.
WISHES an ENGAGEMENT as GOVERNESS in a Unitarian Family, in any part of Ireland ; can enter upon the duties immediately, or at Easter. Highest references with full particulars on application. Address “Cicero,” 56, Russell-street, Liverpool.

[Before the MAYOR and Mr. MULLAN.]
A MAN named Wm. Chamberlain was put forward by a Constable, who stated that Doctor Sandham sent for him last night to complain that the prisoner had inflicted severe wounds on his (prisoner's) wife's head with a poker. The woman not being yet out of danger, the prisoner was remanded.
   Some women of the town were sentenced to imprisonment for disturbing the streets at night. The other cases before the court were unimportant.

   A MURDEROUS OFFER. The following appears in the advertising columns of the Selma (Alabama) Dispatch—“One Million Dollars Wanted, to have Peace by the 1st of March :—If the citizens of the Southern Confederacy will furnish me with cash, or good securities for the sum of 1,000,000dols., I will cause the lives of Abraham Lincoln, William H. Seward, and Andrew Johnson to be taken by the 1st of March next. This will give us peace and satisfy the world that cruel tyrants cannot live in a 'land of liberty.' If this is not accomplished nothing will be claimed beyond the sum of 50,000dols. in advance, which is supposed to be necessary to reach and slaughter the three villains. I will give myself 1,000dols. towards this patriotic purpose. Every one wishing to contribute will address 'H,' box X, Cahaba, Alabama.—December 1, 1864.”

   EXTRAORDINARY EXPLOSION.—In the year 1849 Messrs. Copestakes, Moore, and Co., the Manchester warehousemen and silk mercers, erected a drinking fountain for the use of those passing through the city. It was placed on the south-east end of Bow Church. For a day or tow past those who had been drinking the water complained that it was highly impregnated with gas, but nothing particular was noticed until Friday night, when a person living in the churchyard applied a light to each of the dolphin's mouths from which the water runs, when a flame shot forth and burnt from each for some time. The lights then went out. On Saturday forenoon, between 8 and 9 o'clock, a fearful explosion took place, which blew the front stones of the fountain out. One stone, of considerable weight, thrown across the churchyard, struck the front of Messrs. Sutton and Co., patent medicine vendors, with great force, but fortunately no persons were passing at the time. During the day the ground was opened, when it was found that one of the main pipes of the Churchyard Gas Company had given way, that the gas had escaped and had filled the hollow parts of the fountain and water-pipes, and had in consequence impregnated the water supplied for the use of the public. The defect was remedied during the day.—Times.

(Before Sir J. P. Wylde, Judge Ordinary.)
Mathews v. Mathews, Ramsden, and Ryan.
   This was a suit promoted by the husband against the wife for dissolution of marriage on the ground of adultery. The petitioner was an officer in the army, and while quartered at Cork, in 1858, made the acquaintance of the respondent, an actress, who was at the time performing in the theatre of that city under the name of Miss Campbell. They were married at the office of the Registrar in November of the same year, and the respondent immediately afterwards returned to England. The petitioner then sold out of the army, and, having joined the respondent, they opened a small theatre in one of the midland counties. The speculation proved very successful [sic], and the petitioner having lost the greater portion of his money resolved to go to sea, to the profession of which he had originally been brought up. He did so, leaving his wife fulfilling an engagement at the Derby Theatre, and on his return discovered that during his absence she had lived with the co-respondents, Alexander Ramsden and Bevil Ryan, by each of whom it was stated she has had children. When the suit was instituted the respondent herself wrote in very penitent terms to the petitioner, acknowledging his kindness, confessing her guilt, and begging that neither of the co-respondents might be pressed for costs, on the ground that when they cohabited with her they were not aware of her marriage.
   Decree nisi.
   Mr. Mondel and Mr. Griffiths appeared for the petitioner.

   WELSH AND IRISH NAVVIES.—We are sorry to say that the hereditary feud between the Welsh and the Irish has broken out in Portmadoc, which has resulted in the expulsion of the latter from the employment of Messrs. Mackenzie and Williams, who are making the raised embankment across the Traeth Mawr. Whilst the contractors were engaged elsewhere for a few hours on Wednesday last, the Welsh navvies rose against their Irish fellow-workmen and compelled them to leave the ground, without any other cause being stated or urged save that they were Irishmen. The contractors (one of whom is “a pure Welshman”) are most indignant at this, and intends bringing the ringleaders of the foolish and stupid outrage before the magistrates. Good workmen are very scarce, and the men so ill-treated were first-class fellows in their way, and were very quiet in their general conduct. We are very sorry, indeed, that Welshmen should so give the reins to such national prejudice and folly, and especially as it cannot possibly benefit themselves, and such conduct is certain to bring with it a just retribution.—North Wales Chronicle.
