THE STORM OF FRIDAY.
| A heavy gale set in from the westward on Friday morning, and raged with unusual violence for several hours. The lines of telegraph between Dublin and Cork were injured, and no intelligence could be transmitted. No casualties occurred in the Bay of Dublin, where the sea was fearfully agitated. The English mails did not arrive until half-past seven ; but the mail boat sustained no injury, and forced her way through the storm gallantly. Towards evening heavy showers fell, accompanied by fitful squalls. The pilot boats Curlew and Hawk rescued three fishing vessels from imminent danger in the early part of the day. We trust the Arklow Banks have not been the scene of another casualty as complete and disastrous as that which befell the Tenesserim [sp?].|

| A GALE IN THE CHANNEL.Simultaneously with the receipt of a telegram, directing all coast stations to hoist cone, pointed downwards, anticipatory of a gale from the southward, the wind suddenly rose, and blew with fearful violence from S.W., veering to W. for some hours on yesterday morning. The blue storm flag was hoisted at Kingstown, indicating to vessels in harbour to lower top-gallant masts and yards, brace yards bye, and take other precautionary measures for safety. Fishing boats were caught in the gale in the bay, and lives would have been lost were it not for the assistance rendered by the pilot cutters, Nos. 3 and [?] in towing them into harbour ; some of the boats had to [cut] away their nets. The mail steamer Munster, which left Kingstown in the morning for Holyhead, had two of her boats carried overboard on passage, and smashed. She returned to Kingstown in the evening, and was upwards of an hour detained on passage owing to very severe weather outside.Freeman.|
| DEATH FROM EXCESSIVE FRIGHT.On Christmas Day Mr. William Merrington, a highly respectable farmer, living retired at Billericay, Essex, but who has a son who occupies the farm he had at Buttsbury, about three miles distant, met his death under the following circumstances. On that day there was a family gathering at the farm, and Mr. Merrington, who is a widower and 69 years of age, drove his daughter, Mrs. Duncan, wife of the governor of Billericay Union-house, and her two children, over in a four-wheeled chaise. After dinner, about half-past 4 p.m., he was returning home, and, when near Thorowgood's-wood, the horse took fright and furiously galloped away. It went about half a mile before it could be stopped. Mr. Merrington, who was a powerful man, twisted the reins round his wrist to give him more purchase over the horse. It ran on to a green and up to a gate, and Mrs. Duncan jumped out and ran to the horse's head, having one of the children in her arms. On looking round to speak to her father he appeared to tremble very much, fell back in the chaise, and never spoke more. She shrieked for assistance, but it was a considerable time before any one came. A man came up from hearing the cries, took the horse out, and galloped off for a doctor, who, on arriving, found the vital spark had fled. An inquest was held at the Bull Inn, Billericay, before Mr. Lewis, deputy coroner, when Mr. Rayne, surgeon, stated that death arose from excessive palpitation of the heart, brought on by extreme fright. VerdictDied by accident, arising from fright. It is supposed the chaise pressed on the horse and started it off.|

THE SHELBOURNE HOTEL.
| Upon reference to our advertising columns it will be seen that the Shelbourne Hotel, Stephen's-green, has been purchased by Messrs. Jury, of College-green, Dublin ; Cotton, of the Imperial Hotel, Cork ; and Goodman, of the Railway Hotel, Killarney. These gentlemen are well acquainted with the management of such establishments, and know what constitutes a first-class family hotel ; it is pretty certain, therefore, that under their management the Shelbourne has a future in store for it hardly contemplated by its late proprietor. The three gentlemen who have embarked on the undertaking are well known for their enterprise, and for the success which has marked the other establishments held by them ; for Cotton's Imperial Hotel, Cork is acknowledged to be the first in Ireland, whilst Jury's, of Dublin, and the Imperial, in Belfast, also owned by Mr. Jury, have an almost European reputation ; and Mr. Goodman, who will personally manage the hotel, is well known to the nobility and gentry of this country, from his connection with one of the best clubs in this metropolis, but more recently from his being the successful manager of the Railway Hotel, Killarney.
We understand it is the intention of the new proprietors to thoroughly remodel the house and considerably enlarge it. They do not intend to spare any expense in this direction, their determination being to make it a first class hotel, with all the newest improvements introduced into its arrangements and appointments ; and from what we know of the gentlemen engaged in it, we are pretty certain that the Shelbourne, when complete, will prove to be one of the best hotels in the United Kingdom.Farmer's Gazette.
