Stabbing a Female- Friday a young man named Thomas Cooke, residing at 91, Dorset street, was brought before the magistrates in custody, charged with having stabbed Susan Lloyd (an unfortunate woman of the town) last evening at the Post office, between nine and ten o'clock.
     Police sergeant Derham C.I. stated that he was pissing by the Post-office at the hour already mentioned, when he saw the prisoner run at the female and stab her in three different places with a penknife which he held in his hand. He (the witness) immediately seized him by the collar, when he became very violent, struck him several  times, and during the struggle, broke the blade of the knife. When taken to the station-house, he said he'd be hanged for her, but refused to tell what she did to provoke his wrath or cause his enmity.
     The unfortunate young man, it appears, is very respectably connected, and maintained during the proceedings before the magistrates, the most dogged silence.
     He was committed for trial, their worships not deeming it safe to admit him to bail.
     The woman, who appeared in the office, tho' very much hurt, is not, we are happy to state, considered in a dangerous state.


    The Royal Dublin Society has commenced the erection of a museum, statue gallery and school of art, upon their premises in Kildare street, after a design by John Papworth, Esq., and will, it is said, be in perfect architectural harmony with the society's house, to which it will form a wing. The principal front will face Merrion-square, presenting an arched collonade, forming a garden next to the lawn.
     The society has constructed, over the range of states, &c., in Kildare-street, a suite of exhibition rooms, measuring in length 221 feet.

     Murder-On Wednesday evening a man named Griffith, a sawyer, who came in from the country to the races, was savagely murdered by another sawyer named Fitzpatrick. The latter, believing him to be a colt, took up a stone and struck him in a dreadful blow under the ear, which felled him to the ground. He was taken to his lodgings, and there expired in a short time after. His murderer has absconded.

     SUDDEN DEATH OF COLONEL ARMSTRONG- The town of Portarlington and its vicinity was thrown into great consternation on Tuesday, by a report that Colonel Armstrong was suddenly taken dangerously ill, which was followed by another that he was dead; but unfortunately proved too true. He had been out walking on business immediately before the melancholy occurrence. The poor can never cease to mourn the kind master who spent a princely fortune by employing them.

     An outrage of a very atrocious character was perpetrated on Saturday by four ruffians upon a young female the daughter of a farmer residing about two miles on Blarney. They are four brothers, labourers, living in the parish of Grennagh, and it appears they had planned the abduction of the daughter of a farmer named James Walsh who it was reported was entitled to a fortune of 200l. The daughter whose name is Margaret, a girl of about nineteen years of age, left home on Saturday morning and was proceeding to Cork to purchase some articles, and witness the trial of a relative who was charged with the homicide of a man named Murphy at Grehagh cross. She had not proceeded far on the road when she was met by the four brothers, Denis M'Carty, James M'Carty, Callaghan M'Carty, nad Felix M'Carty, who were driving a horse drawing a butt, which it is said they had hired for the purpose of effecting the abduction of this young creature. When she came up with them, and as they were travelling very slowly along the road, though she was unacquainted with them, they addressed her by name, asking how she was, and invited her to take a seat in the butt, and that they would bring her to Cork. She declined for some time, but eventually they prevailed on her and all came into Cork, and on leaving they then inquired when she would be returning, and that they would be happy to convey her back. Denis, at the same time, pressed her to take some refreshment, but she refused. About five o'clock in the evening, she had executed her business and was on her way home, when she was met again by the M'Carty's in Blarney-lane, and they pressed her to partake of some porter. She then went into the butt, and they travelled along the road beyond Blarney until they came to a cross which led to her father's house, where she made an effort to go home, but , but James M'Carty whipped on the horse violently and the other three held her down in the butt and tightly twisted her cloak round her head. She then screamed as loud as her position would permit, but her voice was drowned by the M'Cartys, who shouted and hallooed out as if they were all amusing themselves still driving furiously for near five miles. She again renewed her efforts to escape, but they knocked her down and dragged her through several fields until they got her to the ground, and after a desperate struggle of over half an hour Denis M'Carty at length succeeded in violating her. She now became exhausted, and fainted, and on recovering she would herself in their house. They did not however remain long in the house as they feared an alarm might be given, and that a man named Lynch whom they met on the road, might inform her father of the company she was in, when they got two horses and  Denis mounted one of them, and the unfortunate girl was brought out of the house by the others, and put before him on the horse, and Felix and Callaghan mounted the other animal, and they rode off by bye-roads to the parish of Glounthawne near Kanturk, about 17 miles, and at break of day on Sunday morning they alighted at the house of a farmer named Riordan,- In the course of the day when the girl, for she had been watched closely by the M'Cartys had an opportunity  she acquainted Riordian's wife with what had occurred, and the woman advised her to pretend to be dying, and at the earliest moment, as she dreaded violence from the M'Cartys, she would seek an opportunity to let her escape. However, an opportunity did not offer until Monday morning, when the M'Cartys were sitting at the kitchen fire eating some potatoes, and Mrs. Riordan took the sash out of the bed room window, in which the young girl was lying, and put her out through it. On getting thro' window she ran a short distance when she was missed by the M'Carthys who made chase after her, but she succeeded in getting into the house of another farmer, and threw herself on the protection of the farmer's wife. The door was instantly fastened but scarcely in time to protect her, as the McCarthys followed quickly on her footsteps, and commenced an attack on the house, which as bravely defended for over an hour by the woman and her daughter until a child was sent to inform the Rev. Mr. Merlarty, P.P., of the outrage. The priest was not at home, gut his sister instantly went for the police to rescue the unhappy girl, whose life was at this time in jeopardy from the efforts of maltreatment and fear. When the police were coming they were perceived by the McCarthys, who attempted to escape, but being quickly followed by the party, two of them were captured, Denis, the principal, and Felix. The girl was then removed home, and was attended by Mr. Oaksbott, whose description of her appearance is too horrifying for publication.
     Tuesday the prisoners were taken before the Petit Sessions Court at Blarney.
     In the course of the investigation Callaghan M'Carthy was identified amongst the crowd around the Court, and was taken into custody. The three have been fully committed to stand their trial at the next Assizes, and a warrant has been issued for the apprehension of the fourth.- Cork Constitution.

     It is stated that Judge Johnston has resigned his seat on the bench. Should that prove correct, Mr. Pigot will supply his place and Mr. Moore will be Attorney-General, Dr. Stock or Mr. Monahan, Q.C., the new Sergeant.
     Donnybrook fair, this week, has proved a miserable failure, and is not even the shadow of what it was; tents, but no visitors-exhibitions but no spectators. Temperance and the Police arrangements have reformed a scene of annual debauchery.
     Mr. Sharman Crawford has included in his committee of the Ulster Constitutional, the names of four clergymen of the Church of England. One of them is the Dean of Down. Another is the Rev. Mr. Boyd of Dromara, chaplain to the Lord Lieutenant. Another the Rev. Mr. Douglas, advocate of National Schools system and the fourth is the Rev. Mr. Hinks, of Killyleagh, formerly a fellow of College.
     Saturday night a party of armed men attacked the dwelling of a respectable Protestant farmer, named Boyd, tenant to Henry Cole Bowen, Esq., residing at Kilturgin, Nenagh. They fired shots into the house, with the intention of murdering Boyd, as three balls were found in the wall in the direction of the bed.
     A man of the name of Fitzgerald, who interfered as a peace maker, at the fair gap of Tulla, was murdered by the contending parties.
     Subconstables Cormegan and Madder, against whom intoxications and riotous conduct were proved at Carlow Petty Sessions, are dismissed the police.
     Mr. Charles L. Stewart, brother-in-law of Judge Perrin, has succeeded Mr. R. O'Brien, as Excise Supervisor at six-mile-bridge.
     R.D. Browne, Esq., M.P., for Mayo, with Mrs. Browne, spent last week at the mansion of Doctor M'Hale. Mr. Browne arrived from Brussels to attend the Connaught Repeal meeting. He is to spend a month of the parliamentary vacation at Derrymane.


     Lord Cunningham, Judge of the Court of Sessions of Scotland, arrived at Kilroy's Hotel, in this town, this evening, from Limerick, from which he will depart on tomorrow morning, we suppose for Clifden and Connemara.
     Arrived at Prospect Hill in this town, a few days since, Valentine Ffrench, Esq., youngest son of our late and much esteemed and respected citizen, Colonel Ffrench. Mr. Ffrench is accompanied by his Lady, and has resided for the late two or three years in Florence.


     The 45th and 98th Regts. will be added to the Irish establishment this month.
     The 42d or Royal Highlanders, at Templemore, having this week received the route for Fermoy, to companies, under Major Macdougall, marched on Tuesday, two companies (headquarters) under Colonel Johnston on Wednesday; two companies, viz., the detachments from Roscrea and Nenagh, under Captain Dunsmur, on Monday next.
     On the embarkation of the 38th, the 42d will move from Fermoy to Cork.
     The 45th embarked at Bristol, for Belfast on Tuesday to relieve the 86th Regiment, which will arrive at Limerick to replace the 88th, ordered to embark for foreign service.
     A Brevet Major, in the 97th regiment, is about to sell out of the army.
     The cumbersome bear-skin cap, ordered by George the Fourth, for the use of the Fusiller and Grenadier companies of the line is, we understand, to be discontinued, and replaced by a smart chaco, not only in consideration of the extreme high price and scarcity of bear skins, from their having been as generally used by the French and English armies of late, but the comfort and great convenience which will be found in a regiment not being encumbered with them on foreign service, which would be the case, the cap being intended to last six years, and the regiments, by the new arrangements, change their station every three.
     The Lieutenant General Commanding has approved of First Lieutenant Thompson, Royal Artillery, stationed at Island-bridge, recently promoted, to quit his command, and proceed to Woolwich.




     We, the undersigned, the Nobility, Gentry, Clergy, Merchants, and Inhabitants of the Town and County of Galway, avail ourselves of the opportunity of being assembled at our Assizes, to tender to you the expression of our sincere regret at your having ceased to reside amongst us.
     For the last Twenty Years you have dwelt here, and many of us have had the pleasure of your intimate acquaintance-many have known you in your official character and all have had opportunities of observing your conduct in the different relations of life, and willingly do we hear testimony to your active benevolence in founding and supporting our Charitable Institutions, as well as to your general usefulness, and the zeal invariably manifested by you to promote the interests of the Town, the improvement of the Port and the increase of its Trade, to which you gave peculiar facility by the courtesy and affability of your manner towards every person who had business to transact.
     Uniting in cordial aspirations for the happiness of your truly amiable Family and yourself, we beg to assure you that you will bear with you wherever you go, our sincere respect and regard, and we trust that of all classes of the community by whom their absence and yours is and will continue to be deeply lamented.

     It is with feelings of deepest emotion that I acknowledge your kind and complimentary Address-at any time it would have afforded me the highest pleasure, but at this moment its value is inestimable, because it proves to me beyond question, that in the sad reverses of my affairs, I have lost none of my reputation, but shall be able to transmit that-the most precious part of what I inherited from my Forefathers-unimpaired to my children.
     Your allusion to the numerous Charitable Institutions that have been established in your Town, during my residence, is extremely gratifying to me, for I did, indeed, feel deeply interested in everything that tended to benefit the poorer part of your peaceable, kind-hearted, and proverbially loyal population, but how could I but be zealous in my endeavours to promote such objects when I saw all around me active and ardent, or how could I sit still wrapt up in selfishness, while the Great Being who saw fit to chastise thousand by the famine and pestilence, with which we were more than once visited, was pleased, in the merciful exercise of his power, to preserve me and my family in abundance and health.
     I thank you for the credit you give me for my exertions in promoting your Trade and improving your Port, as well as your Town - a great impulse certainly was given to both while I was officially connected with you, and my name, I am proud to say, will be found enrolled amongst the first Commissioners appointed by act of Parliament for these purposes.
     The exertions of the one body are testified by the splendid Dock which is about being completed and which will be a Monument of their labours as imperishable as the rock out of which it is hewn.
     The attention of the other is seen in every quarter of the Town, and the brilliant manner in which it is now lighted with gas, its efficient watch, improved pavements, and the handsome Square, which I trust will be shortly finished, will  tell to posterity what has been achieved by their zeal and prudence.
     Your aspirations for the welfare of my family and myself are fervently responded to by us, and ardently do we pray that the richest blessings may be poured out in abundance on you all. We owe you much for your courtesy whilst we resided amongst you, but the debt that is entailed by this expression of your sentiments never can be repaid. My Children and my Childrens-children will acknowledge it when ages shall have rolled over and generations passed away, and if in time to come my name should be mentioned or my memory recalled, proudly will they turn to this Address and say- "This is a proof of the regard and estimation in which he was held by the Men amongst whom he lived and to whom his actions were known."
     Believe me,
        My Lords and Gentlemen,
            Ever faithfully yours,

     An inquest was held a few days since, near Ballinrobe, on the body of a woman named Lardner, who died suddenly. It appeared that she was subject to epilepsy, and the medical gentleman deposed that "she came by her death in a fit of epilepsy."

     Doctor Phelan, poor law commissioner, has given up the care of his districts to assistant poor law commissioners, preparatory to his setting out on a tour of inspection of the medical charities of Ireland, under the 48th clause of the poor law.


     On the first instant, in Ballinasloe, Arthur Ireland, Esq. of this town, to Maria, daughter of the late Patrick Keogh, Esq. of Figh-hill, county Roscommon.
     In Tuam, Robert Devere Hunt, Esq. Surgeon to Margaret Anne Bridget, daughter of the late Captain Loch, of Youghal.


    It is with unaffected sorrow, we have this day, the painful duty of recording the death of Captain Peter Lynch of Ballycunin Castle, which melancholy event took place on the 5th instant.- Captain Lynch was in the 64th year of his age, and for many years a magistrate for this county, and endured a painful and prolonged illness with fortitude and resignation of a christian.- Through life he was a gentleman of the most tender and charitable feelings, one of the kindest and most indulgent of landlords, ever ready to assist the poor.- As as parent and a husband, the most sincere love and affection endeared him to his wife and family, while his loss, as a true Sportsman will be long felt in the neighbourhood in which he lived.- He is gone, it is hoped to a better world to enjoy the reward of a virtuous and pious life, deplored and sincerely regretted by his family and a wife circle of friends and relatives, who followed his remains (carried by his tenantry by his express desire) to the Abbey at Ross, where they were deposited to the family vault.


     The following Bogs on the RAFORD Estate have been Poisoned, viz: Realyars, Cappannot, Gurtrush, Gurtnelun, and Cappanashruane.
     Dated this 7th day of September, 1840.


An Uncle Poisoned by his Niece.

     Mary Moody, a female apparently not more than from nineteen to twenty years of age, was charged with administering arsenic to her uncle, Alexander Boyle, thereby causing his death.
     Hugh Cairns- I saw deceased on last Saturday morning at his house in Market-street. At that time he was in perfect health. I saw him on the evening of same day, taking his supper of porridge, when he appeared to be in  very good health. I went in again about 12 o'clock. When I went in he was sitting at the fire, with his head resting on his knees, and was vomiting. I asked him what was the matter? He said he could not tell, that he was sure he could not live. I then left the house, and did not see him the next morning, Sunday, when he was dead.
     Ann Clarke- I was awakened, on Sunday morning, about half-past six, by the prisoner knocking at my door. When I opened it she said her uncle was dying, as he had been vomiting for a considerable length of time. I advised her to give him a glass of whiskey, with some pepper in it. I went into the room in which the man lay, and found him quite cold. On looking at him a second time, I saw that he was dead. I then told Mary Moody to call for a doctor.
     John Nevin, a boy of 12 or 13 years of age. - I know Rosanna Maguire. I met her in the street on Saturday. She told me that Mary Moody wanted to see me. I went to the prisoner's house about seven o'clock. When I went in she cut a penny roll in two, put butter on it, and gave it to me, together with a halfpenny. When I had eaten the bread, she asked me if I would go for you now (meaning the poison). I said I would. She then gave me twopence, desiring me to bring it to her as soon as possible. I left her, and went into the house of a woman named M'Mullan, and  inquired if she could direct me where I would get the arsenic. She asked me what I was going to do with the poison. I told her that Mary Moody was sending me for it, to give to rats and mice, with which she said she was much annoyed. The woman told me I would probably get it in High street. She also send a little boy along with me. We went first to Dr. Bryson's but he would not give it without a written line from some person. We went to Dr. Marshall's and he refused it, for same reason. WE then came to Mr. M'Allister's and the boy who was along with me went in and asked for the arsenic. When I saw that tome of the young me were going to weigh it I went in, and inquired how they sold it. The person behind the counter said, that it was only one penny per ounce. I then told him to give me an ounce. We bought apples with the other penny. I took the paper to the prisoner, and was in the act of saying "Here's this for you, now" when the prisoner put her hand on my mouth, desiring me to go away, and say nothing about it, but to come back in the evening. When I came back, she gave me some more bread, and cautioned me not to tell anyone that I had been buying for her.
     The boy who accompanied this witness to purchase the poison corroborated his evidence.
     Doctor Aicken - I analyzed the contents of the stomach of the deceased, and found a quantity of arsenic- I would say about an ounce. This was amply sufficient to cause death. I could not discover any appearance of disease on opening the body of the deceased, either in the stomach or intestines. I have no hesitation in saying, that the poison was the sole cause of the man's death.
     The evidence was corroborated by Dr. Andrews.
     Mr. M'Allister's young man was then called and deposed to selling this poison to the two boys-putting two covers on it, and marking each of them in the usual way.
     The prisoner was fully committed for trial.


Melancholy Ocurrence- A very lamentable occurrence took place at Omagh on Saturday night. It appeared that for some time the fields of Mr. R. Holmes, a short distance from the town, had been greatly trespassed on-the hay torn out of the stack, and scattered about-the potatoes dug up and carried away, and the oats and barley greatly trodden down. Mr. Holmes, at length determined to keep watch himself, and frighten the first persons he found by firing over their heads. On the night in question, while he was keeping watch, he heard a noise at some distance and discharged his gun which was loaded with shot in that direction. It unfortunately happened that the person were much nearer than Mr. Holmes suspected, standing in the shelter of a stook of barley, by which they were kept out of sight. The shot took effect on both, a man and a woman, the former person passing by the name of Krasicki, a Polish Count and a Professor of Phrenology-the latter a fine looking but an unfortunate girl of the town named Eliza Young. The girl received 15 grains of the shot in the left side of the head, the Count narrowly escaped, having received only two in the cheek. He was standing with his arm round the girl, who uttered the words "I am killed," and fell, never to speak again. Mr. Holmes, finding what had occurred, immediately called assistance, had the girl carried to the road, and brought medical aid, but to no purpose. She died in a few minutes after, Mr. Holmes at once gave himself up to the police, and was lodged in gaol.

DREADFUL ACCIDENT- On Wednesday morning Thomas Daly, one of the workmen employed in repairing St. Bride's Church, Fleet-street, in proceeding up a ladder, carrying a pot of boiling lead, slipped and fell to the ground from a height of fifteen feet. He was taken up perfectly insensible and conveyed to Bartholomew's Hospital. Besides having received many contusions, he was dreadfully scalded by the splashing of the boiling lead. His recovery is almost hopeless.


     The Very Rev. Mr. M'Donnell, Superior of the order of St. Francis in Ireland, arrived here a few days since on his visitation, and we have great pleasure in announcing that the Rev. Mr. Fe?ey, a pious and exemplary clergyman of their establishment in this town, is elected guardian; and the Rev. Mr. M'Grath appointed Custos? of the province, an office to which his real talents, and mental acquirements justly entitle him.


     We are happy to be enabled to inform the friends of the several passengers on aboard the Kate, bound for New York, that she arrived safe there on the 18th ult., all well, we will give a letter which we received too late for insertion this day, next post, from one of the passengers contradictory of all the lying reports circulated against her.


     Arrangements are being made by the Friends of the above named, much-respected and lamented Gentleman, for the purpose of continuing the Business of the Establishment on the most approved and efficient principles-so as to ensure the Public every possible Advantage.
     They trust that the circumstances of his having left an unprotected Widow, and Seven Young and Interesting Children, will be sufficient inducement to awake the sympathy of all, that by Countenance and Patronage they may be Supported, Educated and Protected, and the Eldest, a most Intelligent and Talented Boy, enabled to attain his Profession.
     Feeling that the Galway Public are ever ready, in such a cause, those Friends rest satisfied, with God's assistance, they will be able to carry out their undertaking with perfect success, and at the same time offer to the Public every inducement that a regular, and well-conducted Establishment can afford.

     A woman, apparently the wife of one of the privates of the 88th Regiment, who embarked in the Arab steamer for Cork, at one o'clock today threw herself into the river as that vessel left the quay. Assistance was immediately rendered, and the wretched creature was saved from a watery grave. It appears that she would not be permitted to accompany her husband (if such he can be called), and in a moment of despair committed this desperate act; when brought on shore she appeared insensible.---Monitor.

    TITHE INSTALLMENT- The second instalment is now in course of payment at the Castle.

At an early hour on Thursday morning the first division of the 88th or Connaught Rangers, under the command of Captain Elliott, arrived at our quay from Dublin, in the Arab steamer, and proceeded to the barracks. The Arab sails this evening to return from Dublin on Saturday with the remainder of the regiment.--Cork Reporter

     The Excise department have received instructions, that no objection be made on the part of the Revenue, to dealers in or sellers of coffee mixing chicory root with that berry.

To the Editor of the Galway Advertiser.

     Sir- A friend of mine has shown me an article in your Paper, in which it is asserted that Mrs. French had refused to attend Divine Worship, at the Chapel of Outerard, while Doctor Kirwan had officiated there. In justice both to Doctor Kirwan and the lady, whose name you have so improperly introduced, I feel bound to give the most unqualified contradiction to your statement. Mrs. French, from extreme illness, was constrained to apply to the Bishop for a private Chaplain, until her health should be restored, and his Lordship kindly acceded to the request. This is the simple fact, and may I hope that you will have the decency to refrain from again introducing Mrs. French's name in connexion with such subjects.
          I am, Sir, your obedient Servant,
                             N.J. FRENCH
