A Wandering Maniac.--A humane Gentleman in Clones writes us, under date of the 6th inst., that a poor, but very interesting, girl (a maniac) has been found lying, frequently in the fields in the neighbourhood of that town. In reply to questions addressed to her, at lucid intervals, she is said to have called herself Charlotte Curry, and stated that her friends, from whom she had been absent about six weeks, lived near Richhill. We trust that this paragraph will meet the eyes of those interested in the fate of this unfortunate female, and that immediate steps will be taken for her recovery.

On the night of the 29th ult. a quiet inoffensive young man, named Fegan, a Protestant, had been in company with some Roman Catholics in a public-house near Bolleisle, in this county, when a dispute having arisen, and threatening language having been made use of to Began [sic], he conceived it right to stop until they would depart, lest they would follow and beat him. Accordingly he waited until it was thought they had time to reach their several homes, and he then proceeded homewards, accompanied by some others, who considered it not right to let him go alone. When they had gone some distance from the public-house, they perceived three or four men before them on the road, who turned off it, and entered a house which Fegan and his friends had necessarily to pass, on approaching which a shot was fired, and the ball entered Fegan's body a few inches below the left breast, and passed out at the right side of the back bone, of which wound he died in a short time after.--An inquest was held on the body by Mr. Wm. Trotter, Coroner, assisted by Major Irvine, and Rev. James Auchlenleck, and it examined [sic] by Surgeon Quinton, when a verdict of "Wilful Murder" was returned against Michael M'Manus, Bartley M'Caffrey, John Keenan, Cormick M'Manus, and Philip M'Manus, and that Michael M'Manus was the person who fired the shot, the others being accessories. John Keenan, Cormick M'Manus, and Michal M'Manus, were taken and committed on the Coroner's warrant.--Enniskillen Paper.

Naval Anecdote.--The following anecdote of Captain William Marcus Courtenay (brother to Henry Courtenay, of Harrymount, County Down, Esq. and nephew to the gallant officer of that name, who was killed in the year 1798, while commanding the Boston frigate,) we extract from "The Naval Chronicle for 1812." It displays at once great coolness in battle, uncommon presence of mind, and real nautical wit : "In the action of the 1st of June, 1794, Captain Courtenay was serving as master's mate on board the Thunderer, then commanded by the present Admiral Albemarle Bertie, one of the ill-fated Captains, excluded from the honourary reward of a medal, because, forsooth, no men were killed or wounded on board his ship, although the Thunderer was in the heart of the action, and nobly did her duty. In the midst of the battle, while the Thunderer was warmly engaged, a spent-shot, 24-pounder, lodged in the fore-yard. A sailor, finding the shot loose, slipped off his neck-handkerchief, placed the shot in it, and brought it to Mr. Courtenay, who was then quite busy lighting some of the main-deck guns, The shot was surveyed for a moment by the surrounding tars, and the question of "Who has any chalk?" was answered by one of the carpenter's crew presenting a piece to the master's mate. The words Post Paid were then made legible on the shot ; and it was placed in a gun, and immediately returned to the enemy. It is impossible to describe the enthusiasm, the joy, and the momentary exultation (to the total exclusion of every other sentiment), that pervaded the whole ship's crew, at this simple but sudden and singular act, the knowledge of which was conveyed from gun to gun with talismanic powers; those only who have witnessed the heart-thrilling effects of three cheers in battle, as conveyed from ship to ship in testimony of each other's prowess or good fortune, can appreciate the value of this kind of stimulus."
