On the 14th inst. ELIZABETH relict of Mr. Mathew Johnston, of Derryhaw, in the neighbourhood of Tynan, aged 100 years. She has frequently stated that she was 15 years of age at the big frost ; but as there is now none in existence who can really confirm the truth of this statement, it was agreed by her friends that her age must be at least 100. She was the only daughter of her father and mother—had herself 15 children, 70 grand children, 174 great grand children, and 6 great great grand children, making a total of 262. Did not leave off her usual labour till about 18 months prior to her death. Died in a good old age, full of years, and, as a stook of corn ripe in its season, was gathered to her fathers.

On Wednesday last,
the Commissioner Lloyd held a Court in Dundalk for the relief of
Insolvent Debtors, confined in the gaol of that town ; when Peter
Kinahan, Henry Kirk, Jas. Haughey, Arthur Matthews, the Widow M’Ardle,
Hugh M’Parland, Patrick Reilly, Michael White, and Philip Daley, were
discharged. There was no opposition of any
importance, except in the case of Arthur Matthews, who was opposed by
Thomas Nicholson. Upon examination by insolvent’s Solicitor, Nicholson
admitted that though the original debt was 10l. he had extracted a bond
from Matthews for 31l. payable in three years. The transaction being
usurious, the in- solvent was discharged.—Drogheda Journal.
Lake Allen, Co. Leitrim, February 24.
On Saturday morning, about two o’clock, an armed party attacked the concerns of the Arigna Iron Company, and having tied the watchman on duty on the premises, proceeded to the house of Mr. Cox, an English Gentleman (who had been sent over by the Company from London), and resident Agent on the concerns. Upon hearing the noise Mr. Cox got out of bed and asked from the window what they wanted, but his question was hardly asked when a discharge of fire-arms took place, and the unfortunate gentleman was shot dead ; they then proceeded to break all the windows of the house, and having obtained an entrance they rifled it of every article of clothing, and took all the money they could find. The inhuman wretches, not satisfied with the murder of the poor gentleman, went on to wreak their vengeance on the lifeless body, by kicking and otherwise ill-treating the corpse. As yet no cause has been assigned for this horrible outrage.
A Coroner’s Inquest has been summoned, and Messrs. Weldon and Winston, Chief Constables of Police, are indefatigable in tracing out the murderers, and there is but little doubt that they will be discovered. As a further proof of the state of this part of the country, it is stated that on Sunday last, as two of the Police were returning from divine worship, they were fired at, but fortunately one of them only received a slight wound upon the finger.
It is the intention of Lord Anglesea to form a Yacht Club in Dublin, which, from the beautiful Bay, will have every opportunity of pursuing its pleasure excursions.
Fraud by Fishmongers.—It is our duty to guard our townsmen against an act of gross imposition, on the part of some well-known creelmen, to which they are daily subject. We allude to the practice of putting stones, or other heavy foreign substances, inside the fish, for the purpose of adding to their weight, and at the same time improving their external appearance. A day or two since, a respectable inhabitant of Hill-street purchased, from one of these hawkers, a fine-looking cod-fish, which he paid for, of course, by weight : the surprise of the cook may be imagined, when, on opening the stomach, she found, firmly embedded there, a large stone, weighing exactly one pound fourteen ounces ! !
Tuesday, 26 drays, laden with malt, belonging to Mr. Norris, of Kieran, County of Louth, coming in to be shipped, were stopped at West-gate for the toll ; a riot followed, and the tollmen were sworn against Mr. Whitworth for exciting the riot, and he was bound over to the Assizes.—Drogheda Journal.
