At London on Friday last, after an illness long and painful, but most patiently endured by the sufferer, the Lady CAROLINE LAMB, wife of the Right Honourable William Lamb, and daughter of the Earl and late Countess of Basborough. Lady Caroline Lamb was distinguished as a lady of considerable literary acquirements, and she enjoyed, in a great degree, the intimacy and friendship of some of the most eminent literary characters of her time ; among others, of Lord Byron, Rogers, and Moore. Her Ladyship had a happy vein of poetry, in which she was frequently indulged, and some of her smaller pieces have occasionally found their way into the periodicals and newspapers. Works of greater importance are also, we believe justly ascribed to her pen.

MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT.—On Saturday evening, a small boat, in which
were five young lads, was upset in a sudden squall of wind, in our
harbour, a short distance from the Dry Dock ; and we lament to have to
state that two of the number perished. The one was the son of Mr.
Vance, carpenter ; and the other, son to Captain Crosby, of the ship
Bolivar, of this port. They were both about fourteen years of age. The
other boys were picked up by a boat from a vessel that passed some time
afterwards. Both the bodies of the unfortunate youths have since been

Opinion.—Duelling.—The officers of the Crown have just decided
on a most important circumstance connected with duelling.— In the
recent affair between Mr. H. Archdall and Mr. Henry Langley, Henry
Alcocks, Esq., a Magistrate of the County and City of Waterford, bound
over the first named gentleman in a bond of 500l., and two sureties of
250l. each, to keep the peace. The parties proceeded to the County
Kildare and fought. Mr. Chief Secretary Lamb has now directed the
Magistrates to return Mr. Archdall’s recognizances as forfeited to the
Exchequer, in order that immediate proceedings be taken against that
gentleman and his bail.
to Assistant Barristers and Suitors, at Quarter Sessions.—A
decision of considerable importance was ruled at the Sessions of
Ennistymon in the last week, by the Assistant Barrister of the County
Clare. The case was an action to recover damages in Trover for taking
the plaintiff’s goods. The defendant justified under the authority of a
Session’s decree and a renewal thereof. The agent for the plaintiff
insisted that the renewal was void, because there was 2s. British
charged for the costs of the renewal, exclusive of the Sheriff’s
warrant, and the costs should have been only 1s. 10-1/2d. British ;
that the overcharge of 1-1/2d. rendered the renewal absolutely void ;
therefore the defendant acted without authority in taking the
plaintiff’s goods. The agent for the defendant said that the 1-1/2d.
charged, more than allowed by the statute, were for the printed form of
the renewal and affidavit annexed to it, which, under that statute the
Stamp office were heretofore obliged to supply gratis. Mr. Cruise, the
Assitant Barrister, pronounced this renewal void, as the statute, only
gave 1s. 10-1/2d. British, costs. There was no statute at present to
enable the plaintiff to charge for the printed forms of decrees or
renewals. He (Mr. C.) admitted that he (the defendant) was liable to an
action of trespass to the plaintiff, for having signed the renewal
containing the overcharge of 1-1/2d. for costs.
To the Editor of the Newry Telegraph.SIR,--Previous to filling up the vacancy in the NEWRY DISPENSARY, caused by the death of the late Doctor Morrison, who, I believe, was appointed “ Visiting Physician” to that Establishment, I beg to offer one or two observations for the consideration of the Subscribers, in whom is vested the nomination of Doctor M.’s successor.
Without meaning the slightest offence to Mr. G. W. BELL, either morally or physically, I beg to enquire (in reference to his letter of the 21st, which appeared in your Paper), if, when TWO persons were found insufficient to administer to the wants of so numerous a poor population as that of NEWRY (containing upwards of 15,000 inhabitants), and which, I am informed, was found to be the case, whether that object can be effected by ONE person, who, in addition to being transformed into an Atlas, with the whole ailing Newry world on his shoulders, has the management of another Dispensary in the County Armagh (Mullaghglass), attending 3 miles beyond Newry.
In my opinion, Sir, were it practicable, Newry ought to have two Dispensaries—one in Down, the other in Armagh—the Town being subdivided between these Counties ; and let the Inhabitants of either County subscribe accordingly, and apply to the two Grand Juries for assistance instead of one.
Should the Subscribers be of opinion, that a second Medical Man be appointed “ Visiting Physician” to the NEWRY DISPENSARY, as it is now constituted, in suggesting the name of our respected and worthy Townsman Doctor JOHNSON, (would he accept of it,) I am certain I but anticipate the wishes of a great majority of the Subscribers ; and any eulogium from me, in commendation of his professional skill, or of his kindness and charity to the lower classes, who are unable to pay for Medical Advice, is entirely superfluous.
Trusting that these crude hints may lead the subject in a more general discussion than has hitherto been bestowed upon it, and that some other persons, more competent, may be hereby induced to lend it their attention, I shall conclude with observing, that to sufficiently administer to the wants of the suffering poor, ought to be the sole object in view, and not favor or emolument to any particular individual, however deserving.
I am, Sir, yours, &c.
S. Q. LAPIUS.

ENNISKILLEN QUARTER SESSIONS.—The Sessions ended on Friday last,
and, as was anticipated, the Crown business was inconsiderable, and
quite uninteresting, with the exception of a case of riot and assault
of a very aggravated nature, committed on persons of the name of
Johnston and Irvine, (respectable Protestants) by William Corran, Denis
M’Dermott, James Doonan, and John Kelly. Corran, M’Dermott, and Doonan
submitted, and were sentenced, the first to five months’ imprisonment,
the second to six, and the third to three, and hard labour during their
several periods of confinement. Kelly traversed, and was found
guilty—sentence, six months’ imprisonment and hard labour.—Fermanagh Reporter .
ROBERT GREER, Bookseller, begs to acquaint MAGISTRATES of PETTY SESSIONS he has prepared Books of REGISTRIES in CIVIL and CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS, REGISTRIES of SUMMONSES, and other requisite Forms, correctly printed according to the late Act of Parliament for the Regulation of Petty Sessions. He is constantly supplied with correct LAW FORMS of every description, Warrants, Recognizances, Committals, Replevins, Supersede?s, Summonses, Processes, Decrees, Renewals, Ejectments, Bills of Lading, Attestations, &c.
The following popular NEW WORKS have been added to the Library within the last two months :-- The Red Rover—the Prairie—Scott’s Life of Bonaparte --Almacks’ Revisited—Tales of the Munster Festivals— Tales of Continental Life, by the author of the English in Italy—the Romance of History, by H. Neale—Herbert Lacy, by the author of Granby—Chronicles of the Cannongate—Tales of a Grandfather—Honor O’Hara— Military Sketch Book—Truckleborough Hall—Continental Adventures—Personal Narrative of an Officer in the late Peninsular War—Campaigns at Washington—new series of Sayings and Doings—Captain Parry’s Three Voyages—Cyril Thornton—O’Briens and O’Fisherys, by Lady Morgan—the Busy Bodies—De Vere—Almacks --Barrington’s Memoirs—High Ways and Bye Ways— Reuben Apsley—Tales of the Moors—Vivian Grey— Granby, &c. &c. ; which, with an extensive selection of every new and popular Work suited to a Public Library, (amounting to nearly Four Thousand volumes), it is presumed, will ensure the continued patronage of the public. To prevent misconception, it is found necessary to state that a constant supply of new Works cannot be engaged to any Subscriber exclusively. The very high price of all modern Novels, and the general anxiety for an early perusal, make it impracticable, as it would be unjust to other Subscribers. An attentive perusal of the Rules and Regulations, printed in the Library Catalogue, is respectfully requested ; which, from the great increase in number and value of Books, during the last six months, can, in no instance, be departed from.SCHOOL BOOKS and STATIONARY of every description always on sale; which, with a select assortment of NEW and STANDARD WORKS, CHILDRENS’ BOOKS, BIBLES & PRAYER-BOOKS, &c. will be sold on the lowest terms.
