THE DEATH OF A CLOYNE PRIEST IN AUSTRALIA.—It is with regret that I have learned [of] the rather untimely and sudden death of the Rev Daniel Arthur O'Keeffe, who for many years officiated in different parishes in this diocese. The deceased about two years ago adopted the far-distant land of Australia for his future missionary labours, and in consequence of the laborious duties which devolved upon him, his health became rapidly impaired, and he died rather suddenly in August last, it is supposed of disease of the heart. His death caused much regret in the far off land of his adoption, and especially amongst his exiled countrymen. Father O'Keeffe was a native of Castlemagner.—Cor.

Kilross, Tipperary,         
17th November, 1881.    
   SIR—Your report of the proceedings in the case of Count Moore, M P, v. Moroney, heard at the Galbally Petty Sessions yesterday, and reported in your issue of this date, was in the main very accurate ; but I beg you will allow me to correct a few misconceptions contained therein. The site of the schoolhouse in question was surrendered by my father thirteen years ago for a highly important consideration promised and intended by Count Moore's late father, and repromised by the Count himself since his majority, but which promise and consideration he has failed up to the present to fulfil.
   The proceedings are not taken in the interest of or by the wishes of the parishioners, several of the largest of whom attended in court in my interest ; but the turn the case took in that court precluded their being examined.
   In the interest of fair play I ask your insertion of this letter. —Your obedient servant,
Mr. [illegible] MORONEY.    
Limerick, Thursday Evening.    
   At the Ballyneety Petty Sessions to-day, before Mr John Russell and Mr Henry Croker,
   John Vaughan, of Carnane, Michael Long, J Hayes, Edmund Murphy, Denis Kinehan, Patrick Casey, John Heagney, John Walsh, John Carmody, Stephen Quin, Michael Casey, Jeremiah Holihan, Timothy Ryan, Patrick Sheehan, John Casey, William Mulqueen, Laurence Barry, P Hayes, and Patrick O'Brien, all of Cloherdolerty, were summoned at the suit of the Queen, per Sub-inspector Carter, for having on the 9th day of September, at Tubberyquin, intimidated Wm Butler and Michael Crehane, with the view of compelling them to abstain from doing an act which they had a legal right to do, viz. :—to cut oats with a scythe, and to thrash oats with a machine, contrary to the 38th and 39th Vic., chap. 86, sec. 7. Mr Maurice P Leahy, Sessional Crown Solicitor, attended to prosecute, and said if the defendants admitted the offence, he would not press for the infliction of severe punishment, but if they denied the offence, he should adopt another course. The penalty for such an offence was a fine not exceeding £20, or imprisonment not exceeding six months. The defendants having pleaded guilty, were let off with a fine of 6d. and costs, and cautioned not to repeat the offence.
   Two brothers named Frawley, were returned for trial to the next assizes for having grievously assaulted their brother, Thomas Frawley.
   James Kirby, a gardener, and his son, Cornelius, were also returned for trial for having assaulted William Minahan and his wife while returning home on the second night of the last Munster Fair.
   Mr John Dundon, solicitor, appeared for the complainants in both cases, and Mr Robert M'Namara, solicitor, appeared for the defendants.

POLICE OFFICE.—The presiding magistrates yesterday were—Messrs. A Mitchell, R.M., J Ogilvie, and Dr. Wycherley.—An unfortunate named Alice Lucey, against whom many convictions were recorded, was sent to gaol for a month for being drunk and disorderly on the previous night. Detective Constable Sloane charged a young man named Charles M'Dermott with being a deserter from the 20th Hussars, at Waterford. It appeared that on the arrival of the 1.30 train of the Great Southern and Western Railway on the previous day, the detective arrested the prisoner on suspicion of being a deserter. On searching him he found in his possession portraits of himself in uniform, and also a passage ticket to America. The prisoner admitted the desertion, and was committed as a deserter.—Adjourned.

   In the disposal of his personal property, his Grace, the late Archbishop of Tuam, has made provision for handing over to the Trustees of the College a small estate, in the neighbourhood of Tuam, which had come into his possession many years ago, and had since then enabled him to contribute with a generosity plainly in excess of the narrow resources of an Irish Catholic Bishop to so many acts of charity and religion. Available, of course, in the first instance, within certain limits, for the students of his Grace's Diocese of Tuam ; then for stundents of the other dioceses of the ecclesiastical province over which for so many years he had ruled as Metropolitian ; and, in fine, within the reach from time to time of some deserving students from the three other ecclesiastical provinces of Ireland, the “MacHale” Burses or Prizes in Maynooth will form one of the noblest and no doubt the most enduring monument ever raised to the memory of a Prelate of the Irish Church.—Freeman.

   The Secretary of the Navan (co. Armagh) Land League has received a letter from Mr Patrick Egan, stating that the Executive are at present staying at Paris on the advice of their imprisoned chiefs, have decided that the national candidates shall be at once selected for the constituencies of Ulster, as a dissolution of Parliament may take place very soon. In compliance with this suggestion a meeting of the Land Leaguers was held yesterday at Armagh, Mr Loughnan president of the late Navan Land League in the chair. It was arranged to request Mr Alexander Blane, of Armagh, and Mr John Duddy, of Belfast, to contest the county in the Land League interest.
