   FATAL ACCIDENT.—An inquest was held this day on the body of a man named Patrick Forde, who died at the South Infirmary last evening from the effects of injuries he sustained by falling into a boiler of potatoes at Carrigaline, on Monday last.—Verdict in accordance with the facts.
   ONE BOY SHOOTING ANOTHER.—A boy named Hichens, about 12 years old, residing in the neighbourhood of Penzance, went out with a little boat in his hand to show to a next door neighbour named Hall, nine years old. Hall wanted to have it in his hand, and followed Hickens [sic] back to his house and world [sic] not go away. Hichens threatened to crack Hall's scull [sic], and took up a gun belonging to a lodger, which happened to be loaded ; it went off, the shot lodged in Hall's shoulder, and after lingering some days Hall died. At a coroner's inquest held this week before Mr. John Roscorla a verdict of “Manslaughter” was returned against Hichens.—Western Morning News.
   HORRIBLE MURDER.—A murder has been perpetrated at St. Just, near the Land's End, the alleged murderer being Sergeant Goodyre, ¹ of the local Rifle Corps, and the victim his wife. It was at first supposed that the deceased had died by her own hands, but further inquiry has led to the conviction that [she] has been cruelly murdered by her husband. On Wednesday last the deceased was found dead in the kitchen of their house. It appears they had both been drinking on the previous evening, and the sergeant states that he left his wife at midnight, when he [sic] went to bed in the kitchen, and that in the morning he was awoke by hearing her call the children, but that on going down he found her dead. An inquest was opened the same day before Mr. John Roscorla, county coroner, and adjourned to Friday to allow of a post mortem examination being made, when the evidence adduced was that the deceased had been stabbed in the womb by a sword or bayonet. The jury returned a verdict of “Wilful Murder” against Sergeant Goodyre, who was apprehended and brought before the county magistrates at Penzance on Saturday. He was fully committed for trial on the charge. The prisoner was formerly colour-sergeant in the 36th Regiment.

   AUSTRALIAN SNAKE.—The Riverine Herald is responsible for the following :—“It is said that two men, belonging to Mr. Cameron, of Ullima Station, were passing by one of the tanks upon the Sandhill Station, when to their horror and surprise and immense snake, or serpent, raised its huge length to the height of ten feet from the ground, and 'flung at once its venom and its strength.' Fortunately, however, the reptile's aim was faulty, so that the two men escaped with a fright. The men aver that the snake was at least 20 feet long, with a mane for six feet down the neck like that of a horse, and that its mouth when open looked large enough to swallow a fat wether, without even crushing its bones. This reptile is what is called the 'mindi' by the aboriginals, the breath of which they imagine poisonous enough to destroy any animal life that may come within reach thereof ; therefore, upon all occasions they give the creature a wide berth.”
   MURDER AT LEEDS.—An Irish labourer, named John Rowan, aged 35, died in the Leeds Infirmary on Sunday morning from wounds inflicted on him at a late hour on Saturday night by another Irishman named Patrick Welsh. It appears that a short time ago a quarrel took place between Welsh's wife and a woman who was a relation of Rowan, and that Welsh, for some reason or other after the quarrel harboured a strong feeling of resentment against Rowan, and that feeling he carried into murderous effect on Saturday night by going up to the victim of his hatred in Lower Cross street, and stabbing him with a packet [sic] knife in the neck and in the abdomen, exclaiming at the time, “I'll have it out of you.” As soon as he had inflicted the wounds, Welsh ran away, but was well known to the police, having several times been convicted in Leeds of disorderly conduct, and on Sunday he was apprehended at Goole. Immediately after he was wounded Rowan was picked up and taken to the General Infirmary. The medical attendants at that institution soon found that his case was hopeless, the wound in the abdomen being of a very serious character. Before he expired, and when he was perfectly conscious, he made a deposition in the presence of the local magistrates, and in his deposition he said he could not assign any reason for the conduct of Welsh, who rushed upon and stabbed him twice, uttering at the same time the exclamation already mentioned.—Times.

   AN EXTRAORDINARY CHARACTER.—A man was received at the Marylebone workhouse on Tuesday evening, so ill from erysipelas that the surgeon at noon yesterday did not expect he would survive many hours. His name is Bartholomew Corbett, he is eighty-nine years of age, and is father of Sergeant Corbett, of the United States cavalry, who shot Booth, the assassin of President Lincoln. For many years past he has rented a small back room at the top of the house, No. 41, Chapel- street, Edgeware-road, Marylebone ; and although Mrs. Allen, his landlady, has it is said, been very kind to him he has never permitted her or anyone else to enter his room for the last seven years ; but in consequence of the old man not having appeared for several days Mrs. Allen became alarmed and sent for Mr. J. S. Beale, the divisional surgeon of police for Paddington, who speedily arrived at the house, but he was unable to get into the room in consequence of the door being blockaded with huge heaps of rubbish. With the assistance of two constables the room door was forced, and when this was accomplished Mr. Beale and the constables had to creep on “all fours” before they could reach Mr. Corbett, whom they found in a state of delirium and crouched down in the furthest corner of the room. Under these circumstances Mr. Beale ordered the man to be removed at once to the Marylebone workhouse infirmary. Yesterday Mr. Douglas, master of the Marylebone workhouse, accompanied by Mr. Tubbs, the assistant overseer of the parish, proceeded to examine the old man's room. They found that from the floor to the ceiling it was literally crammed with cases of stuffed birds, books, and papers. The latter were carefully covered and labelled and many of them appear to be of value. Every article in the room was covered with the accumulated dust of many years. An avenue three feet high by two feet wide, and formed of stuffed birds, &c., led to a small recess, in which the old man must have slept for many years. Some of the letters show that Sergeant Corbett is on his way to England.

AT the Queenstown petty sessions, yesterday, Capt. Martin, Messrs. J. N. Beamish and T. H. Tarrant on the bench, a respectable looking female named Ridgeway, who was remanded from Monday on suspicion of stealing a silver table spoon, which was afterwards ascertained to be the property of Capt. Norris, of H.M.S. Frederick William, was put forward. It was then proved in evidence that on the night of the ball on board the Frederick William some spoons were missed. The one, however, offered for sale by Ridgeway being so battered it could not be identified, and the prisoner was therefore discharged. Samuel Richards, seamen, summoned Capt. H. A. Harmes, of the Dutch steamer Baron Bentinck, for a month's wages. It appeared the complainant shipped with Capt. Harmes in Glasgow to go on a voyage to Batavia, on board the Bentinck, as a stoker at the rate of £4 10s. a month. Complainant signed no articles, and on his arrival in Queenstown he asked to be allowed to sign them, but the captain refused him permission, and the complainant consequently refused to work. He was then discharged, without being paid any wages. Captain Martin and Mr. Tarrant were of the opinion that they had not jurisdiction in the case. Mr. Beamish was of a contrary opinion, and thought it would be better [to] get the advice of the Castle.² This suggestion was agreed to.

   AN UNEXPECTED VISITOR.—A few days since a seal entered the house of John Henan, of Ballykinler, much to the astonishment of the inmates, who, however succeeded in capturing the animal, which measured eight feet in length and four feet in girth at the broadest part. In its passage from the water it had to climb over eleven perches of a sandy bank to get to Henan's house. —Down Recorder.

   ANOTHER SEIZURE OF ARMS.—In Belfast, on Wednesday, a further seizure of arms was made on board the Fleetwood steamer by the Customs' officers. A large cask, consigned to a merchant in town, was opened, and, on being searched, was found to contain a number of rifles and several bullet-moulds. Several cases containing arms, which were seized during last week, were forwarded last evening on board the Fleetwood steamer to the manufacturers in Manchester. —Belfast News Letter.

   SEVERE STORM IN CORNWALL.—On Saturday night a storm of great violence raged in Cornwall, and on the following morning it was reported that several disasters had occurred along the coast. Some immense trees were uprooted in the immediate neighbourhood of Truro, and house property suffered severely. Early in the week the famous Arch Rock at Kynance Cove yielded to the fury of the storm.

   THE REPORTED LOSS OF A FRENCH LUGGER.—The reported loss of a French lugger, the Victorine, of Havre, noticed in the papers on Wednesday, turns out to be a fabrication. Auguste Alexandre Vatinel, the Frenchman who told the tale to Mr. Watson, the superintendent of the Great Yarmouth Sailors' Home, and was admitted into that institution on the faith of the statements which he made, has been brought before the local magistrates on a charge of stealing a coat from the Home, and has acknowledged that his tale about the lugger was a fiction. He has been sent to the French gunboat Le Cuvier, now lying at Lowestoft, to be dealt with at the captain's discretion. Vatinel was in a very destitute condition when he was received at the Home, and he was also somewhat bruised ; and as the weather had been very coarse, his tale was readily believed. The coat lend him, and which he was charged with stealing, has not been recovered ; In fact, the fellow appears to be an ungrateful vagabond.
   OUTRAGE IN A RAILWAY CARRIAGE.—A recent case of abominable outrage on two ladies travelling on the North Eastern Railway between Scarborough and Pately-bridge was made the subject of a magisterial investigation on Saturday at the Norton (East Riding) monthly sessions. On the 27th ult., Mrs. Blackburn and Miss Robinson, of Pately-bridge, were passengers, with periodical tourist or excursion tickets, by an evening return excursion train from Scarborough to Pately-bridge. The defendant, a farmer named Robert Agar, residing at Westend, Pately bridge, got into the same carriage as the married lady, and between Scarborough and Malton expressed his intention of violating her person, and conducted himself in a most brutal manner, hurting her so much that she was ill for a week. At Malton the defendant got out of the carriage, and was locked out by a passenger who had a key, but he got into another compartment and attempted the same outrage on the younger lady. All the way to Pately he used most disgusting language. Other passengers restrained him, and gave the ladies what protection they could in the dark, there being no light in the carriage. One of the defendant's freaks was to make and light a flambeau in the carriage. The conduct of the defendant was so gross that the two ladies were afraid to travel in the same train with him to Malton without protection, and Mr. Blackburn was obliged to escort them to Malton and back—132 miles. Agar made no defence. He said he was “rather fresh,” and made a noise like the rest of them. The magistrates said that this case was one of the most brutal that had ever been in that court, and they regretted that they could not impose a higher fine than the by-law named. It was men like Agar who rendered it so dangerous for women to travel alone and unprotected. They fined him 40s., with £3 18s. costs. Agar paid the amount, and went away laughing.
   DR. LOCK'S PULMONIC WAFERS.—Read the following from Mr. E. Richardson, Surgeon and Chemist, 21, Corn-market, Dublin : “One person states that for 17 years they have kept her alive, and she would not feel safe to go to bed without taking them. I need hardly add that I recommend the Wafers, and invariably observe a beneficial result.” They have a pleasant taste. Price 1s. 1½d., 2s. 9d., and 4s. 6d. per box. Sold by all Druggists.
   ENTANGLED IN A COW'S TAIL.—A few days ago an inquest was held at Kelby on the body of Pearson Wakefield, aged 16 years. The deceased was in the employ of Mr. Everitt, of Kelby, and on the previous morning went as usual to a field about a quarter of a mile off to fetch up two cows to milk. He had been absent about 25 minutes, when one of the cows was seen running towards Mr. Everitt's farm yard, dragging deceased at her tail ; and on being stopped the tail was cut, and deceased's leg, which had become entangled, was released. He was found to be insensible and severely bruised on the head and body, and died in half an hour afterwards. After hearing the evidence of the witnesses, the jury returned a verdict that deceased was accidentally killed.—Armagh Guardian.
   BEER AND ALE.—The quantity of beer and ale exported to the 30th of September this year was 430,572 barrels, as compared with 346,970 barrels in 1864, and 366,338 barrels in 1863 (corresponding periods). The chief sources of the increased demand have been India and Australia, which have taken nearly two-thirds of the whole of the beer exported this year. The value of the malt liquor exported to the 30th September this year was £1,590,035, as compared with £1,283,346 in 1864, and £1,285,112 in 1863 (corresponding periods).

   SHOCKING TRAGEDY.—The River Plate (Monte Video) Times contains an account of the murder of a man named Campbell, with his wife and children. Campbell lived at Carmelo, on the river Juan Gousalez. He had three sons, but only the youngest was at home on the night of the 21st of August. On the morning of the 22nd Campbell was found dead in a corner of the court-yard. He had been stabbed in various places, and had his fingers and arm, cut across, as if he had attempted to defend himself from the murderer—first with the arm, and then by seizing the weapon in his hand. Mrs. Campbell was also found lying dead in the yard, with some half dozen stabs in the body. In the house the body of the youngest son was discovered. He had evidently been killed by repeated stabs, and a knife covered with blood was found lying on the table of the dwelling room. With one exception, all the boxes belonging to the Campbells had been opened and rifled of their most valuable contents. The bedroom window had been forced open, as had the bedroom door by means of some heavy blunt instrument ; no doubt then remained that the murders had been committed the same morning, seeing that the fire was still burning and the water in the kettle was still hot. The knife, it was shown, was the property of a notorious ruffian of the neighbourhood named Escobar, and when the man was apprehended, Campbell's watch was found in his possession.

   The dead bodies of nine of the crew of the brig Favourite, of Liverpool, which was wrecked off Blackpool on Wednesday night last, had up to Saturday afternoon been cast ashore, six at Bispham, about three miles distant ; one at Cleveleys, about the same distance ; and two at Fleetwood, five miles off. The coast above Blackpool for two or three miles is strewn with pieces of spars, sails, and broken timber belonging to the wrecked vessel. About 100 barrels of palm oil and several bags of seeds, forming part of the cargo of the Favourite, have been washed ashore, and are now in charge of the authorities. The inquests on the bodies of the sailors thus far found was held on Saturday afternoon. Police-constable Robert Smith said on Saturday he went to the sands above Blackpool and saw four dead bodies. On the arms of one man there were three letters, “W. C. C.” He had not been able to ascertain the names of any of the deceased men. The captain, whose body had been washed ashore, was a married man and the father of four children. The Coroner in summing up the evidence said that the lifeboat crew appeared to have done their duty, and were not to blame in the matter. A verdict of “Accidentally drowned” was returned. The weather has been stormy at Blackpool ever since Wednesday, and on Saturday night a heavy sea was running.
   The gale has been severely felt along the Vale of Glocester, up which the wind, being nearly west, rushes with direct force. At Haverton, as Mr. Harris, a farmer, was approaching his own house, he was, in sight of his wife, blown into a pool and drowned before any assistance could be rendered him. It is a curious coincidence that the deceased's brother was accidentally drowned in the same pool about a year ago. Very serious apprehensions are entertained respecting the fate of the spire of the parish church at Cheltenham, which on Wednesday had two stones blown from it on to the roof of the building. It is much feared that the gale which returned on Saturday night may consummate the mischief begun on that day.
   A woman named Sedley was killed at Upton-on- Severn by the blowing down of a wall, and a signal station at Malvern was blown down during a brief absence of the alarmed signalman.
   FEARFUL ACCIDENT TO A WEDDING PARTY.—On Monday, a wedding party met with a very serious accident at Harwich End, near Whaleybridge, by which one young lady was dreadfully injured. and several others slightly. The party consisted of Mr. William Waine, the bridegroom, son of Mr. Abel Waine, farmer, of Silkstone, near Bugsworth ; the bride, Mrs. Margaret Waine, Miss Eliza Waine, sister to the bridegroom, and a number of friends, including a party from Manchester. They were returning from Taxal Church, in two cars, after the nuptial ceremony. The drivers of the cars could not agree on which should take the lead, whereupon a race ensued. The excitement appears to have increased, and the contest grew warmer until the party reached a sudden turn in the road, opposite the White Horse Inn, at Harwich End. At the turn the speed caused one of the vehicles to run on one wheel for a long distance, and it upset, throwing the occupants into the road with great violence. Great confusion ensued. While some lay insensible on the ground, others were in a state of great consternation and suffering. The bridegroom's shoulders were dislocated, and his arm and other parts of his body much injured. His sister, Miss Eliza Waine, was picked up in an insensible state, and so devoid of all symptoms of animation that it was feared that life was extinct. Dr. Bennett, of Chapellen-le-Frith, was at once sent for, and, on his arrival, held out but faint hopes of the young lady's recovery. On Tuesday morning, however, signs of returning animation were visible, and for the first time after the accident, she spoke a few words, and is going on as well as can be expected. It is feared the spine is permanently injured. Mr. Isaac Lomas, the clerk of the parish, was also taken up insensible, but, after stimulants, recovered consciousness. It was found that the injuries he had sustained were of a comparatively slight nature. John Andrew was much hurt about the head and other parts of the body. The vehicle was broken, and the horse much injured.—Sheffield Independent.

At a meeting of the Liberal members of the Council, held this day, a vote was come to, after considerable discussion and protest, the result of which was that Mr. FRANCIS LYONS was put in nomination as candidate for the office of Mayor. Several members refused to vote on the ground that the ordinary rule, by which the minority should be bound by the majority, was not adhered to.
Mr. I. JULIAN in the chair.
OTHER gentlemen present—The Mayor, Messrs. Murphy, M.P. ; Maguire, M.P. ; Sir W. Hackett, Messrs. Harrington, M'Namara, Sugrue, Deane, Bremner, Clery, Lambkin, J. Murphy, O'Sullivan, Pim, Murray, and Honan.
   The usual routine business having been transacted, the Board adjourned.
   DREADFUL CASE OF SUICIDE.—On Wednesday morning a woman named Mary Millar, an inmate of the Belfast Union Workhouse, committed suicide by hanging herself on a tree in the ground of the workhouse. So far as we have been able to ascertain the facts, it appears that the deceased woman was an inmate of the hospital, and was under treatment for a chronic complaint. She was put to bed on the previous night, and on Wednesday morning she was not there. The nurse made an examination of the establishment to find where she could be concealed, and at day-light she was found near the front of the mean [sic] building, hanging on a tree dead, having evidently torn a portion of her dress to fragments to make the rope. A full investigation into this melancholy case will, no doubt, take place at the inquest.—Northern Whig.
