At Lisburn, on Saturday the 2d inst. CHARLOTTE, wife of Nicholas Delachorois(?), Esq.
On the 2d(?) inst. at his house in Bryanstone-square, London, Sir RICHARD JOHN STRACHAN, of Thornton, in Kincardineshire, a Nova Scotia Baronet of the creation of 1625, Admiral of the Blue Squadron of his Majesty’s Fleet, and Knight Grand Cross of the order of the Bath.
“ At his house in Townsend-street, on the morning of the 1st instant, MICHAEL HUGHES, Esq. In announcing the demise of this respected Gentleman, we fell, in common with a numerous class of our fellow-citizens, the deepest regret. Few men in his sphere had acquired so large a portion, not only of the blessings of the poor, (to whom his heart and purse were always open), but the marked attentions of the titled and the affluent. With manners at once frank and engaging, he gained all hearts, and captivated every understanding. From a beneficent God, who loves the beneficent, he may, we humbly trust, be sure of meeting the reward of a long and well spent life.
“ On Sunday last, the remains of this highly respectable Gentleman were interred in St. Andrew’s Church-yard. The numerous assemblage of his fellow-citizens of all ranks, who attended on the occasion, gave ample testimony of the affection and esteem in which he was held. Amongst the vast concourse of persons who paid such a tribute of respect to his memory, we noticed the Right Hon. Lord Plunket and three of his sons, the Venerable Archdeacon Bishop, Sir C. Vernon, Rev. W. Bourne, and Rev. Mr. Blacker, with several other Protestant and Dissenting Clergymen.”—Dublin Evening Post, Feb. 5.
Dreadful Outrage.—A diabolical act was committed near the town of Tipperary, on Thursday night last—since which we learn that four brothers, named Daniel, William, James and Robin Magrath, have been apprehended for it, and committed by R. Bushe, Esq. The facts are as follow [sic]:--a man named Michael Neill lately married a widow, whose former husband was brother of the Magraths before mentioned ; and some family quarrel having existed respecting a few acres of ground left by deceased, in consequence of which Neill had been threatened, he took the precaution of sleeping in an outhouse with a servant boy, in order the more easily to make his escape in case of an attack, should it be attempted. On Thursday night, a party of men, with their faces blackened, came to the door of the cabin where he slept, and induced him to come out in his shirt—when they, with swords and scythe, attacked, wounded and maimed him—cutting off his thumbs and chopping his arms whilst holding them up to save himself ! They cut off the cap of one of his knees, by which he must be a cripple for life, if he should even survive the horrid treatment he received. He is also wounded in various other parts of the body, limbs and head ; and but for the zeal of the above mentioned servant boy, who ran off and alarmed the neighourhood, they would doubtless have cut him to pieces. There is little hope of Neill’s recovery from the loss of blood and the exruciating agony of his wounds.—Clonmel Advertiser.
A man murdered for four pence ! near Cashel.--About one in the afternoon of Friday, as two men were on their return from Cashel to the neighbourhood of Ardmoyle, they travelled quietly together till they came to a bye-road near Cluin ; when one of them asked the other if he had fourpence, which he had lent him some time before ? --the man answered that he had not—on which he was immediately knocked down by the miscreant and deprived of life ! A Coroner’s Inquest sat on the body on Saturday, and returned a verdict accordingly.—Ibid.
To the Editor of the Newry Telegraph.
SIR,--Will you allow me, through the medium of your publication, to inform my friends and the Gentlemen of Newry, that not having been aware of any opposition to my being appointed Physician to the Dispensary, in the room of the late Doctor Morrison, as Mr. McKenna neither gave public notice, or apprized me of his intention, I did not consider it requisite to canvass, or to call on my friends for their support, very many of whom were consequently absent. I beg thus publicly to return thanks for the unsolicited kindness I have, notwithstanding, experienced.
I remain, Sir, your obedient servant,

We understand from good authority, that a very serious party riot took place at Portglenone on the night of Tuesday, the 5th instant, on which day a fair was held in that town. We are also informed that a number of shots were fired by the contending parties. We have not received any minute account of the particulars.— Belfast Guardian.
Sunday morning, a lighterman, named Sharkey, was discovered in a dying state, on board a lighter which he had in charge, at our quay. He had arrived from Navan with a load of oats the preceding evening, and retired to rest in the hold.— By some accident the fire communicated with the corn, which ignited, and the hatchway being closed, the suffocation of the unfortunate man was the natural consequence. Life had not completely fled when he was found ; he was immediately attended by Surgeon Darbey, but his state was past human skill to relieve, and a few minutes terminated his existence. An inquest was held by the Mayor, in absence of the Coroners, and a verdict to the above effect returned.—Drogheda J.
Caution to Servants.--Mary Anne Brook, a servant to a farmer at Tidenham, Gloucestershire, was sentenced at the late county sessions, to three months' imprisonment and hard labour in the Penitentiary, for admitting a man with whom she kept company into her master's house, and for giving him some provision, knowing the same to be her master's property.

LUNATIC ASYLUM.--As the best proof that can be given, not only
of the extreme value of this Institution, but of the humanity and
kindness of its Managers, we insert the following letter from a
patient, who has, under the blessing of God, been recently discharged
cured from the Asylum. It is addressed to his late “ keeper.”
A numerous Meeting of the Subscribers to the Newry Dispensary and Fever Hospital took place, yesterday, in the Sessions House, pursuant to advertisement,--W. N. Thompson, Esq. in the chair. A desultory discussion, or rather conversation, as to the business more immediately to be transacted, was followed by a motion for the appointment of Mr. G. W. Bell, as sole Medical Superintendent of the Institution, for the ensuing year. To this several amendments were made--for, while all seemed to be agreed as to the merits and qualifications of Mr. Bell, a diversity of opinion existed as to the capability of that Gentleman singly to perform the multifarious duties connected with the Dispensary. The question was subsequently disposed of by a resolution, unanimously adopted, re-appointing Mr. Bell to his former office, that of Surgeon to the Institution. A discussion next ensured on a motion for adding 10l. to the Surgeon’s original salary.--This was ultimately carried in the affirmative, and the Meeting then proceeded to the choice of a successor to the lamented Dr. Morrison. Two candidates were proposed for this situation, namely, Dr. Johnston, and Surgeon M’Kenna. A poll being taken, there appeared--for the latter, 48 ; for the former, 44. Surgeon M’Kenna was, therefore, declared to be duly elected as coadjutor to Surgeon Bell, at a salary equal to his, and the Meeting soon after separated.
For such term as may be agreed on,

Extraordinary Pet.—An officer in our customs’ department, long famous for pets of almost every description, has now in his possession an extraordinary one indeed—it is no less than a pet oyster, took off the Mayor’s Bed, the property of the corporation, and of the largest and finest Poll Doody breed ; being fed an oatmeal, for which it regularly opens its shell, and being occasionally treated with a dip in its native element, it seems to enjoy a place in the curious menagerie, almost as well as its neighbours. But the more extraordinary trait in the history of this ambitious pet is, that it has proved itself an excellent mouser, having, as we are informed, already destroyed five mice, by instantly crushing the heads of such as, tempted by the odoriferous meal, had the temerity to intrude their noses within his bivalvular clutches. Twice have two of the little marauders suffered together.—Galway Independent.
