NEWRY PETTY SESSIONS.
On Friday last, James Morgan, Eleanor Hagan, Mary Treanor, and Thomas Savage, all of Hilltown, were brought to the bar in custody of the Police, charged on the evidence of Rose Morgan of Ballaghelly, an interesting young woman, aged about 19, and of very genteel appearance, with having aided and assisted Thomas Corrin of Hilltown, publican (who, we regret to say, has hitherto escaped the vigilance of our active Police), to forcibly lock her up in his dwelling-house, and there detain her against her will, from a late hour on the evening of the 27th, until the evening of the 29th day of Dec. last, when she was at length rescued by her friends from treatment too distressing, and by far too indelicate, to detail in our columns. It further appeared, that on the morning of the 27th Corrin met the prosecutrix (with whom he had been previously acquainted) in Newry Market, and that, after various abominable contrivances, he at length succeeded in accomplishing the capital offence with which he now stands charged. Subsequenly, and while the unfortunate young woman was unable, from the intoxicating liquor which had been forced upon her, to make any effectual resistance, Corrin forcibly conveyed the prosecutrix to, and locked her up in, his residence at Hilltown, where she was detained for the time and in the manner above alluded to. The prisoners were fully committed for trial at the next Down Assizes.
Bridget Morris, an old woman, who stated she resided at Corderry, near Dundalk, and Patrick Gallagher, of Newry, also appeared in custody of the Police ; the former charged with having on the 27th ult. stolen a web of cloth, the property of Messrs. Phelan and Denvir, of the Woollen Mart, and the latter for stealing a gown, the property of Mary Moore, on the night of the same day. They were also committed for trial.
Ellen Fitzpatrick, an idle disorderly woman, was then put to the bar, and subsequently committed for trial, charged with having on the 28th ult. at Newry, in the presence and hearing of a Magistrate and several respectable females, used certain profane, disgusting and obscene expressions ; also with being a vagrant, not having any honest visible means of support, or any settled place of residence.
The following persons were ordered to find bail to appear and abide their trial at the ensuin Sessions :--Mary M'Anulty, for assaulting Nathaniel Campbell, at Newry, on the 3d. inst. ; and James Gorman, of Damully, for a violent assault on Mathew Sands, at Cloughanramer, on the same day.
We understand that our worthy and highly resepected townsman, James Williams, Esq. has obtained, through the Marquis of Downshire, the appointment of Distributor of Stamps for the County of Down--an appointment which, we doubt not, will give great and general satisfaction.

Mr. Sayers caused the box to be partially opened, when part of a dead body was perceived. He immediately communicated the circumstance to Mr. Noble, at the Police Office, and it was arranged that notice should be sent there when the box was claimed. In the course of the evening, it was called for by two young men, of genteel appearance, who were immediately taken into custody, and, on examining the box, two dead bodies were found in it (a man and a boy).

The bodies have all been sent to the Poor-house, preparatory to their being re-interred.--Guardian.

On Wednesday night, an old maiden lady, Eleanor Bourke, was accidentally burned to death, at her lodgings, in Ennis.
MURDER.—On the night of the 31st ult., a serving man of the name of John Downy, in the employment of the Governor of Cavan gaol, had been drinking in a public-house in that town, in company with some soldiers of the 62d regiment quartered there at present. They remained until after the regular hour for returning to Barracks had elapsed, when the picquet went its round, taking up whatever soldiers were found thus transgressing. The soldiers in question, to avoid being made prisoners of in this way, fled on the approach of the piquet. Downy, participating in their alarm, fled also, and sought to avoid the apprehended danger by running up a lane, into which, however, he was followed and overtaken by the corporal commanding the piquet, who, with his bayonet fixed on his musket, made a stab at him, and with such fatal effect, that the weapon, passing completely through the left arm, entered the side, and penetrated the heart, the unfortunate young man fell, having merely time to exclaim, “Corporal, you have ruined me,” when he expired. The perpetrator of the atrocious deed was immediately taken into custody, when he alleged that the deceased had attempted to deprive him of his arms. A Coroner’s Inquest has been held on held on [sic] the body, and a verdict of Wilful Murder returned against the corporal, whose name is Patrick Hughes. He has been accordingly committed to abide his trial at the ensuing Assizes of Cavan.—Morning Post.
