RIOT AT MOUNTKENNET WORKHOUSE - The Limerick Reporter contains the following statement: - It appears that two boys, having committed some misdemeanour, the temporary master, Mr. James Morrison, deprived the delinquents of their morning meal, when the entire number of paupers in the house, with hardly one exception, rose up en masse and declared they would not submit to have any of their number treated in such a cruel manner. Mr. Morrison, finding his utmost efforts to quell the disturbance without avail, sent for the police, and twenty three of the city force under Head-constable Joynt and Constable Shannon, and accompanied by Dr. Gibson, J.P., went promptly on the spot. On their arrival the yard was filled with a tumultuous mob, yelling most vociferously, shouting and flinging stones at random at the windows, and into the adjoining streets and quay, while a large portion of them were collected around an immense breach in the outer wall, of thirty feet long and twenty feet high, which, upon learning that the police were sent for, they had made as a means of effecting their escape from street. The police having drawn up in the dining hall, Dr. Gibson ordered the yard to be cleared, but the moment the door was opened a volly of stones was directed against the constables, one of which inflicted a deep gash on the cheek of Constable Hunt. The door was instantly shut to, and for some time longer the rioters continued shouting and huzaaing at the retreat of the police, and challenged them to venture amongst them again. In the meantime the men fixed bayonets in the hall, and seizing an opportunity when the paupers' attention seemed to be divided, Head Constable Joynt rushed out, followed by the entire party, and threw the rioters into complete confusion. Stones, however, continued to be thrown by the persons most remote from the police, wounding and greatly annoying many of the men, who were prevented from seeing their assailants by the obstinacy of the rioters, who firmly withstood every effort to pass through the crowd. The assault continuing, an order was given to charge, and the police did charge with fixed bayonets. Fortunately, no serious wounds were inflicted, although the ferocity of the rioters was so great that some of them caught the bayonets by the points, and struggled with the constables. The contest continued for over an hour, and the police, in the course of it, evinced the most exemplary forbearance, suffering themselves to be wounded with stones in the head and body, and yet exhibiting no exasperation against their assailants. A guard stationed at the breach prevented any persons from leaving by that means of exit, and thus saved the citizens from being annoyed as on the occasion of the late riots. The police, however, used the butts of their muskets rather freely, in a short time the malcontents were locked up in their wards, having suffered several contusions on shoulders, legs and arms from the carbines. Sub-constable Mayburne had his nose and cheek split from a blow of a stone, and Head-constable Joynt received a severe blow on the ancle, and some less serious blows on the hands and head. Sub-constable Noble had his thumb split and others of the men experienced similar injuries. No arrests were made, as it was impossible to distinguish, where all were disorderly, who were most so.
BALLINA QUARTER SESSIONS
These Sessions commenced on Wednesday last, before the Assistant Barrister, M. O'Shaughnessy, Esq., and terminated on Monday last. There were 494 Civil Bills, 13 Replevins and 32 Electments entered for trial. The number of indictments amounted to 100.

Thomas Higgins, appellant, John Little, respondent.
The appellant had been convicted at the Petty Sessions of Foxford in a
penalty of £2 for having illegally fished with crosslines to which
conviction he appealed.
John Cassidy appellant, Same, respondent.
This appeal was brought under circumstances precisely similar to the last. The same objection with the same result was raised by Mr. MacAndrew to the recognizance in this case.
This was an indictment at the suit of the Rev. Patrick Malone, Roman
Catholic Administrator of this parish, against the Rev. Edward Murray,
formerly Parish Priest of Kilfian, for interrupting religious worship in
the chapel of Kilfian, on Sunday, the 21st of April last. Mr. Walter
Bourke, crown solicitor, and Mr. Peter kelly consucted the presentation

following is a list of the convictions: -
Two Roman Catholic Chaplains of
the Limerick Auxiliary workhouses died of contagious fever within the last
A number of pauper female
emigrants were confirmed in Dungarvan chapel on Sunday by Dr. Foran, the
R.C. Bishop of Waterford, previous to their embarkation to Quebec. During
the ceremony a poor woman, Judy Brien, had her pocket picked of 1s. 6d.
PRESBYTERIAN COLLEGE IN DERRY - The late Mrs. Magee, of Dublin, bequeathed £20,000 for the establishment of a college in connection wit the General Assembly of Ulster, the site of which was to be selected by the executors. A negotiation has been concluded between the Irish Society and the Rev. Dr. Browne, of Aghadoey, one of Mrs. M'Gee's executors. The society are to grant ten or twelve acres of ground for the site of the college in the neighbourhood of the city of Derry; also, to found a number of bursaries in connection with the institution, the whole of its dotations being equivalent to £14,000.
CAUTION TO POACHERS - On Saturday last at Newtown-Mount-Kennedy Sessions, John Ashenhurst, of Glassamullen, was indicted for snaring a hair on the property of Major Beresford, at Ballynastoe. The prisoner having pleaded guilty, the magistrates, at the special instance of the prosecutor, mitigated the penalty and took security by recognizance that the offence would not be committed again.
FATAL DUEL - A duel took place on the 15th, ten miles from Turin, between Colonel Assanti and M. Soler. The cause was that the latter had written against Manin, and the former had taken up his defense in no measured terms. The duel was brought with pistols, it being understood that it would continue till the result was fatal to one of the combatants. M. Soler fired first and missed; M. Assanti, on the contrary, hit his adversary in the head and laid him dead.
PERILS OF DISSECTING IN THE PROVINCE - From 12 o'clock yesterday morning until nearly 11 at night, very considerable excitement existed amongst the inhabitants of Cashel, in consequence of the discovery of a dead body in a house in Friar-street, in which a body (that of a female) a Mr. John Phelan, a Mr. Denis Molony, and _____ Carrigan, were operating. The latter young man is a medical student from Carrick, the second named person is an apprentice to Surgeon Coffee, of Cashel. The smell emitted from the house was most offensive and bitterly complained of by the neighbours. Some time before one o'clock Police Sergeant Lyons got into the house by the rear, while more of the police and their chief, Joseph Cox, Esq. got by means of a ladder through the windows; having arrested the above named operators, the police remained in charge of them and the body (one of the arms was separated) until the return of the resident magistrate, the Hon. Mr. Ffrench, who was absent on duty in Fethard; the prisoners were brought before him about 9 o'clock; and after an investigation, they were committed to the bridewell until they should enter into bail; during the investigation, Mr. John Phelan said he was the person who purchased the body for 10s., for the purpose of dissection; that he purchased it from a man whom he did not know, and who said it was the body of a friend of his, whose relatives had not the means of procuring a coffin; meantime a herd has been lodged in bridewell, who, it is said, knows something of the disinterment of the body. During the time the accused were escorted from Friar-st. to the bridewell, an immense crowd followed, screaming and shouting, and it was supposed that the mob would have attacked the house where the accused had the corpse, but that the police had so timely arrived. It was intended to hold an inquest and for which purpose the coroner was sent for; but after his arrival, evidence of taking the body from the coffin was produced. The accused are, therefore, to be tried at the present sessions. They are not yet bailed.--Clonmel Chronicle.
DEATH FROM DROWNING - On yesterday a most serious and melancholy accident occurred in the Douglas channel under the following distressing circumstances:- It appears that in the course of the above day, young Mr. Halburd, son of the Rev. Mr. Halburd, went to bathe in the Douglas river, accompanied by a young friend. Mr. Halburd, having undressed, leaped in into the river, when it unfortunately happened he was carried out of his depth by a strong eddy which runs in that particular part of the river. His companion seeing him unable to contend against the tide then flowing, plunged in to rescue him, but after struggling for some time, with great courage, he became exhausted, and was obliged, in self defence, to make the shore, where he procured a boat, and put out again in search of his friend, but too late to render any assistance, as the body did not again rise. We understand that Mr. Halburd was a young gentleman of the most kindly disposition and amiable manner; and respected by all who knew him. He had only returned home on the day previous from College, to spend the vacation with his family. To the young gentleman, who was well nigh becoming a sharer in the unhappy fare of his friend, great praise is due for his courageous exertions in attempting to rescue his companion from a watery grave; so exhausted was he that after failing in his exertions he fell off in a swoon, and lay in a state of insensibility in the boat, until he was perceived by some persons walking on the railway, when he was restored and conveyed home. The body of Mr. Halburd was found on last evening, about half past two o'clock.--Southern Reporter.
THE IRISH INVASION - At a meeting of the Cardiff council on Friday, the Mayor stated that an Irish master mariner had been fined £20 for bringing over 68 poor wretches without having any accommodation for them whatever. The vessel was nearly filled with oats, and these poor creatures were obliged to be huddled about the deck or anywhere -so that if bad weather came on, some of them, at least, must have perished. At the suggestion of the dockmaster, the coal proprietors had entered into an engagement (as at Newport) not to supply coal to any vessel in which Irish paupers had been brought over.--Cardiff and Northern Guardian.
THOMAS ORDE LEES, ESQ.
On this day Mr. Lees retires from
the Secretaryship of the Post-office, and will be replaced by Mr. Cornwall
Lewis, a gentleman of whom public report speaks highly. It is to be hoped
the successor of Mr. Lees will exhibit, in the administration of the
Post-office, the same sterling qualities which have recommended Mr. Lees
to the esteem and affection of all who had to transact business in his
department. Perhaps no public officer in the discharge of laborious and
often irksome duties has ever done so much to disarm hostility or to
afford every possible convenience to the press and public. It is almost
incidental to such an office to be engaged in constant inquiries relative
to matters which are calculated to excite rather than assure - and we have
had our share of such references-but n every instance, and without a
single exception, we ever found in Mr. Lees the bland and polished
gentleman, the able and intelligent officer, the painstaking public
servant, who knew so well how to reconcile his duties to the crown, with
his anxiety for both public and private interests. He never protected
abuse from the light of proper inquiry. When a complaint was made- and in
such an extensive department as the postal administration of an entire
kingdom, causes of complaint will occasionally arise.- Mr. Lees patiently
heard and to the extent of his power afforded redress. But whether the
complainant was or was not satisfied with the extent of the remedy, he
was, at least, thoroughly impressed with the conviction that Mr. Lees had
left nothing undone to satisfy the exigency of his complaint. It will be
difficult to replace this worthy man, who carries with him into an
honourable retirement the esteem and regard of every citizen in Dublin.

MURDEROUS ASSAULT - FATAL RESULT.
Friday morning last, as the police were on patrol near Lisronagh, they discovered a man in an almost lifeless state lying on the road, he having been beaten thus brutally, by some persons at present unknown. The unfortunate man's name is Dawn. The police had him removed to his own house, which is but a short distance from the spot where this murderous attack was made, a medical man was immediately sent for, but the poor man was totally unable to utter a word, or even to make a sign which might lead to a discovery of the perpetrators of this dreadful outrage. Poor Dawn is a native of the neighborhood and always bore an excellent character. Since writing the above we have learned that Dawn has fallen a victim to the injuries inflicted on him. Our discovery of his brutal and murderous assailants. We have an active and vigilant police, and we hope that in a very short time a good amount will be given of these beastly and blood-stained miscreants.-- Clonmel Chronicle.

| SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO
AN EMIGRANT SHIP - On Wednesday a most disastrous and somewhat
extraordinary accident occurred to the New York emigrant ship
Hemisphere, by which three men lost their lives, and others were placed
in a very precarious condition. The vessel, which was commanded by
Captain Whittelseye, left Liverpool yesterday week, bound for New York,
and on Tuesday, when off Holyhead, about half way across the Channel,
encountered a gale of wind from the west-south-west. On Wednesday, the
weather still continued boisterous and the men were ordered aloft to
reef topsails. Whilst they were thus engaged the ship gave a tremendous
lurch to leeward and the three masts were at once carried away. It is
stated that there were eighteen of the crew aloft at the time and four
were pitched into the sea, one of them not to rise again, while the
others were thrown with great violence on the deck. Of the latter, two
named William Gibbs and George Bethell, were killed on the spot, and the
others sustained serious injury. Among those injured was a sailor,
twenty-four years of age, named Wm. Blair, who had his right arm broken,
so that it only hung by a small portion of skin. After this dreadful
catastrophe the remainder of the crew got up what head-sail they could
and put the ship round; and, although it was some time before they met
with assistance, they ultimately fell in with the steamer Queen, by
which they were towed to the Mersey on Thursday afternoon, and
subsequently into the Nelson Dock. On the arrival of the Hemisphere, it
was at first thought that the accident was of a much more serious
nature. The passengers numbered between 400 and 500 and had experienced
the greatest alarm, but they were taken in charge by the consignees and
emigrant broker, who will forward them to their destination by some
other vessel. The wounded were conveyed to the Northern Hospital on the
following day and an inquest was held on the bodies of the two men who
were killed. The facts, as above stated stated, were given in evidence,
and after a searching investigation a verdict of "accidental
death" was returned. We should state that the Hemisphere is quite a
new ship, having only recently come from Boston to Liverpool on her
first trip, and in consequence of her rigging having stretched on her
passage here everything was set to right previous to her sailing. It is
thought, however, that the heavy rain and the rolling of the sea caused
the rigging to slacken again and to that circumstance the fatality may,
doubtless, be a great measure be attributed.

In Castlebar, on the 15th inst., John, eldest son of Capt. M'Carthy, Staff Officer of Pensioners, aged 13 years.
DANGEROUS ACCIDENT - On Sunday last a young man named Moran of Carnagloush, parish of Kilgarvin, was out shooting and when in the act of crossing a fence the gun went off and shattered his left arm and hand fearfully. Doctors Whittaker and O'Dowds attended the sufferer and were obliged to perform immediate amputation. We are happy to state that the unfortunate young man is progressing as favorably as can be expected under the circumstances. It will be in the recollection of our readers that a similar accident occurred to our townsman, Mr. George Hearne, some months since, who, we rejoice, is now perfectly recovered and at present enjoying sun-bathing at Ross.
AFFRAY WITH THE REVENUE POLICE
Yesterday evening the Revenue party stationed here proceeded on information to Ardnaree, and some shouting having been raised a young man named Cowley came in for some severe knocks on the head and body from the butt ends of two or three muskets. The nature of the provocation we could not learn, but the case calls for investigation. Were it not for the active interference of the Ardnaree party of Constabulary there would have been a serious affair between the people and the Revenue.
The appearance of the several crops in this neighbourhood is exceedingly cheering. The late harsh winds somewhat retarded their growth, but the delightful weather we have enjoyed during the past eight or ten days has caused them to spring forth again with fresh vigor. Although the luxuriant state of fields of wheat, oats, and barley is a cause of much gratulation, yet the potatoes absorb almost the entire interest of all. Any apprehension of a failure that might have existed has nearly ceased, such is the healthy appearance of the crop and of the potatoes brought into market which are now selling at 6d. per weight of 14 lbs. Thomas Paget, Esq., of Knockglass mentioned in the Board-room of this Union on Saturday an instance connected with the potato disease which may be interesting to know.- This gentleman planted as an experiment a few potatoes which were partially affected with the blight among sound seed. The result was that when the stalks became large they exhibited all the appearance of the disease and so infected those in their immediate vicinity, but to prevent any further injury Mr. Paget had them removed. Doubtless there must be many more such instances in this country from the impossibility of being able to have avoided planting unsound seed, but these are not now causes of much alarm, thanks to an all-bountiful Providence.

DREADFUL SUICIDE - Roscrea, July 8th, 1850.- A most cool and deliberate act of self-destruction was committed in Roscrea, about nine o'clock on Sunday morning, by a young man named John Lawler, aged nineteen years, servant to Mr. Michael Doherty, baker and grocer, Market-square. He arose from his bed about six o'clock in his usual health, drove home his master's cows, fed his pigs, and went through his usual Sunday morning's work with the same steadiness as usual. After his work being over he retired to his employer's yard and offices (which are situated in Chapel lane) to paint a coffin for a countryman, who was to call for it. In a short time after painting it he locked the yard gate inside, detached a rein from the bridle of a horse, on which he made a running noose, putting it round his neck. He then, by means of an inverted bucket, on which he stood, secured the other end to a joint, then trying a handkerchief firmly round his mouth to prevent him from breathing, he let himself off. It is supposed just as the man came for the coffin, and finding the door locked inside called, and not getting an answer, he forced the lock, and was shocked at the sight that met his eyes. He immediately cut him down but the vital spark had fled, and only a short time as the body was quite warm. No cause can be assigned for his committing the fatal deed. He was young man of excellent character. An inquest was held on Monday by Mr. O'Meara, coroner, and a respectable jury, who returned a verdict that deceased hanged himself while in a state of temporary insanity.--Nenagh Guardian.
- There is room in Tipperary workhouse for 818 paupers.
FRACAS IN THE GRAND JURY ROOM - A serious altercation took place on Friday last in the grand jury room of the new court-house, between Captain Macnamara, foreman, and Mr. O'Brien, of Birchfield, another member of the grand jury, which might have been attended with evil consequences were it not for the interference of Mr. Augustine Butler, of Ballyline, in his magisterial capacity. It is not for us to express any opinion on the conduct of the parties; but we regret that any such occurrence should have taken place. We are happy to state, however, that the affair has since been satisfactorily arranged.-- Clare Journal.
At the Limerick Lying-in-hospital, Catherine Griffin, wife of a labouring man, gave birth to three female infants, all living.

ASSAULT - On last Saturday a boy named Thomas Neary from Coolearney was attacked near the hill of Ardnaree by Mark and Antony Kilmartin, who jumped on the poor fellow's body, and kicked him on the head, from the effects of which he now lies dangerously ill. The Kilmartin's were immediately arrested by the Ardnaree police and committed to bridewell. The cause of this assault is supposed to be that the boy Neary informed the revenue-police of illicit whiskey being in the possession of these men, who live in the same neighbourhood.
Terence Mulheran and Catherine Mulheran, who were indicted for the wilful murder of Edward Jennings on the 18th of May last, near Killala, have been tried at the present Mayo Assizes and acquitted.

MUTINY IN THE WORKHOUSE - Another emeute took place on Tuesday in the Parent Workhouse, North Strand, when a large posse of the well fed inmates assailed the master and wardens with stones and other missiles. The riot was not effectually put down until the appearance of the police, with Messrs. Barron, Devitt and Boyne, who selected from the mob of idol ruffians eight of the ringleaders, who are lodged in the county jail.-- Limerick Chronicle.
ASSAULT ON A PROTESTANT CLERGYMAN - At the petty sessions of Clifden, two ruffians named Lee and M'Dermott, were fined 30s and costs, or a month's imprisonment each, for a brutal and unprovoked assault on the person of the Rev. Wm. Kilbride, curate of Clifden. It appears that the Rev. Gentleman- accompanied by the schoolmaster- was escorting 400 or 500 children from one of his schools, when a ferocious mob, headed by Monks, fell upon and assaulted them in the most savage manner.
AN M.P. IN TROUBLE - Mr. Pat Somers, the Repeal member for the borough of Sligo, was violently assaulted last week by Mr. Charles Bentley, of the Westminster cricket club, who blackened the hon. member's eye and cut his face severely.
THE BALLINA UNION
It will be a piece of good news for the creditors of this Union to
learn that special meetings of the Guardians will be held on Friday,
at Two o'clock p.m. and on Saturday, at Nine o'clock, a.m. for the
purpose of discharging the liabilities of the Union to the 29th of
September last, out of the funds (£21,300) placed at their disposal
for that purpose by the Poor Law Commissioners. This arrangement was
entered into at a meeting of the Board on Monday last, when Colonel
Knox Gore was in the chair, and Mr. Commissioner Bourke present. The
debts incurred and due between that date and the 17th of May last, it
is probable, will also be paid at some future period out of the
government advances to distressed unions, provided there be a
sufficient surplus after paying off the debts to the 29th of
On Monday it was agreed that forty of the patients should remain in
the Hospital pending arrangements necessary to re-establish this
useful institution in its old form- supported by grants and
subscriptions from the county. In the meantime the Guardians will
provide for the patients and pay the nurses, the committee of the
Hospital agreeing to supply all medical appliances and the medical
officers to give their attendance gratuitously.
The Armagh Guardian states that

discharge, boats of the wicked deed.
