On 5th March inst., Mr. WILLIAM CORDNER, of Newry, aged 38 years. His loss is deeply lamented by his relatives and friends ; towards the former he sustained the offices of son, husband and parent, in the most amiable and exemplary manner ; and in the circle of the latter, which was numerous and respectable, he was ever found the man of integrity, frank and unassuming in his deportment, and the social companion. In the musical societies and circles of this town—of all of which he was a distinguished ornament, and which he improved by his science and charmed by his melody—his loss will long be felt and deplored, as well as by the Presbyterian Congregation of Newry, of which he was the highly respected precentor for some years past ; and the sacred music of which he brought to a state of great perfection during his sojourn amongst us.

HORRIBLE MURDER.—A man of the name of Martin Fitzpatrick, who lived at Sart, within a mile of Freshford, in this County, was cruelly murdered on Sunday evening last, about nine o’clock. The gentleman from whom we received the above information, stated to us, that a dispute had existed for some time back between the deceased and his brother Patrick, relative to the settlement of some property—and that on the evening in question a party of sixteen went to the house in which the two brothers resided, and attacked Martin in the most savage and brutal manner, and after breaking his arms, back, and legs, dragged him towards his brother, in order, as they said, to shake hands and die in peace with him ! The unfortunate man expired in a few moments. The Police from Freshford arrived at the house immediately after the blood-thirsty villains left it; by their exertions, however, six men have been arrested on suspicion, one of whom had several spots of blood on his clothes, and another a large stick, also marked with blood.— Kilkenny Moderator.

COUNTY LOUTH ASSIZES.
(Reported exclusively for THE TELEGRAPH.)
Dundalk, Wednesday, 12th March.Precisely at 3 o’clock the Hon. Justice JEBB took his seat in this Court, when, the Commission being read by W. Bourne, Esq., the Clerk of the Crown, and the Grand Panel called over, the following Gentlemen were sworn :--
J. L. FOSTER, Esq., M.P., Foreman.
B. T. Balfour, Esq.
Sir A. Bellingham, Bart.
John M’Clintock, Esq.
W. P. Ruston, Esq.
F. Fortescue, Esq.
J. W. M’Neale, Esq.
T. L. Norman, Esq.
Edward Tipping, Esq.
Thomas Tisdall, Esq.
M. O’Reilly, Esq.
T. W. Filgate [?] , Esq.
Robert Thompson, Esq.
George Touffe [?] , Esq.
B. D. Sheilds, Esq.
N. Manning, Esq.
H. Chester, Esq.
W. H. Richardson, Esq.
R. Murphy, Esq.
Wm. Filgate [?] , Esq.
John Woolsey, Esq.
Chas. Eastwood, Esq.
Thos. Fitzgerald, Esq.
His Lordship, in addressing the Jury, said that the Calendar presented few cases to be tried ; and that it was pleasing and gratifying to find the great decrease in crime, as evident in this County, compared to other parts of Ireland, where crimes, indicative of a spirit of insubordination and bad feeling, were so deplorably manifest. Contrast, said his Lordship, the present state of the Calendar with that of the same period last year, and what a pleasing testimony the result must afford to these whose desire it is to alleviate the dissentious and distracted state of society.—He observed that there were on the Calendar three cases of homicide, and one for a malicious wounding. After adverting, at some length, to the law in such cases, his Lordship directed their attention to two cases of rape, which would, also, appear before them. It would be the duty of the Jury, he remarked, strictly to examine into the circumstances connected with charges of this nature ; and it was particularly deserving of their attention, not only to ascertain that these crimes were committed in the manner stated in the information, but that the necessary acts of force and violence were resorted to, and that the party aggrieved had instantly applied to the proper tribunals for redress.—These were the only cases appearing on the Calendar to which he felt it necessary to direct their immediate attention.
His Lordship said he would now call their notice to various representations that had been made to him relative to the state of two great public thoroughfares. The first was the road leading from Dundalk to Carrickmacross, and the other, that from Dundalk to Castleblayney. These roads were so very bad as to impede considerably the commerce of Dundalk—in which the immediate interests of the inhabitants were so deeply involved. He understood that a heavy burthen had been already imposed on the landed proprietors of the County—but, while he wished that every economy should be used in the distribution of the public money, yet they were bound to make such presentments as would be necessary to keep the roads in a proper state of repair.
There was one more topic he had to call their particular attention to, namely, the very disgraceful and dangerous state of the principal street in town—the liability to repair which, he understood, was a matter of dispute between the Trustees of the Turnpike Board and the Grand Jury. The former, it seemed, pleaded their want of funds for the purpose, and the latter rested solely on their non-liability, [illegible] that the Trustees of the Turnpike Road were the persons by whom the repairs should be made. If, however, it should appear that the Trustees had not really the means, it was quite clear that the Grand Jury were legally empowered to present for the requisite repairs. Should this mode of adjusting the matter not appear satisfactory, there was another fund to which recourse might be had ; he alluded to the Tolls of the Corporation. His Lordship added, that he understood the inhabitants of the town had very liberally proposed to defray one half of the expense necessary—an offer which, in his mind, should not be disregarded ; and concluded with stating, that several bills would be sent before them this evening, and which, he hoped, would be prepared for trial on to-morrow morning.
The Court soon after adjourned.
The Hon. Justice Johnston takes his seat in the Nisi Prius Court, in room of Mr. Justice Moore.—(To be continued.)
DROGHEDA, MARCH12.—Monday last, at half-past two o’clock, the Hon. Justice Jebb arrived in town. At three o’clock, his Lordship opened the commission in the Crown Court, when the following Grand Jury were sworn :--
PETER VAN HOMRIGH, Esq. M. P., Foreman.
Francis Donagh [?] ,
T. B. Hardman,
St. [?] G. Smith,
F. G. Fairtlough,
G. W. Evans,
H. B. Fairtlough,
Edward Fairtlough, jun.
F. W. Leland,
Richard Shegog [?] ,
John Chenham [?] ,
John Van Homrigh,
Michael Chester, and
James M’Cann, Esqrs.
His Lordship briefly addressed the Grand Jury, and the Court soon after adjourned to nine o’clock yesterday morning, when several unimportant trials took place.
Bills of indictment were found by the Grand Jury against Mr. Whitworth, for exciting a riot at Westgate, upon which occasion the toll-men were abused and knocked down. The trial was postponed to next assizes, in consequence of the severe illness of Mr. Whitworth.
The other cases of rioting and resistance to the collection of tolls, were also postponed to the next Assizes.
Mr. Perrin moved the Court that the Reverend Joseph Murphy, who had been arrested the preceding evening by the Sheriffs of Drogheda, on a civil action, at the suit of a person named Costello, a butcher, residing in Cole’s-lane, Dublin, should be liberated, that he might appear in discharge of his bail to answer a criminal information for embezzling £4,400 from Mrs. Holmes of this town. The Judge refused to interfere, but said he could be brought up under an habeas corpus.
Mr. Holmes then, on the part of Mrs. Holmes, stated that, from a recent decision in the Courts at Westminster, in the case of the King a. Prince, he had no hope of proceeding in the prosecution against Mr. Murphy, he not being a Broker, an Attorney, or a paid agent ; he therefore prayed the Court to vacate the recognizance entered into by his client, which was accordingly complied with. Mr. Murphy’s bail were also exonerated on the application of Counsel to that effect.
RECORD COURT.—This morning, the Ejectment case, Lessee of the Corporation of Drogheda, and of Alderman Charles Evans, and of Mr. Wm. Clinton, v. Charles Campbell, Patrick Barron [Barren?], and Thomas Finegan, was tried before the Hon. Justice Johnson and a special Jury. The estate in fee of the property in question being vested in the Corporation of Drogheda, Elizors were appointed to impanel the Jury, the Sheriffs, as a part of that body, not being eligible to act. Pat. Ternen, and Thos. Carty, Esqrs. were nominated Elizors by the Court of the King’s Bench ; who accordingly summoned a Jury of the first respectability, and upon which, from the circumstances of the case, no freeman could be submitted.
The case was opened by Mr. Staples, for the plaintiff ; after which witnesses were examined, who clearly proved the identity of the property and the title of the Corporation thereto, and also the title from them through Mr. Evans to Mr. Clinton.
Mr. Gilmore, on the part of the defendant, contended that the locality and the identity of the premises were not sufficiently proved, but examined no witnesses. Upon which his Lordship immediately directed the Jury to find for the plaintiff which they accordingly did, 6d. damages and 6d. costs, without leaving the box.
Counsel for the Plaintiff—Messrs. Staples, Holmes, Curry and Pentland—Agent, Mr. Archbold [?] .
Counsel for the Defendant—Messrs. Gilmore, Perrin, and Brady—Agent, Mr. Wilkins.
TYNAN PLOUGHING MATCH.
The Tynan branch of the North-east Farming Society of Ireland held its first annual Ploughing Match, on the 5th inst., in the beautiful demesne of Fellows-hall. About 10 o’clock, the roads and neighbouring hills were crowded by a vast concourse of people, all approaching the scene of exhibition ; and among the many distinguished individuals present, I observed Sir James M. Strong, Bart., Major Close, Major Thornton, Captain St. George, Captain Johnston, Rev. James Blacker, Wm. Irvine and T. Armstrong, Esqrs. Lady Strong, accompanied by several Ladies of fashion, graced the field with her presence on the occasion. Messrs. Fair, Pringle and Cochran, having been appointed Judges, about 12 o’clock 23 ploughs started, with “ sound of horn.” Each ploughman had one rood allotted for his task, and which was performed by some in the very short space of one hour and twenty minutes. The horse and foot Police attended from Armagh and the neighbouring villages, and with considerable difficulty restrained the anxious and impatient crowds from trespassing on the ploughed grounds. “ It was a pleasing reflection,” said one of the Judges, “ to observe such wonderful improvement in agriculture, for in the course of that evening, he and his colleagues had never met with a more difficult task, than deciding to whom should be given the eight prizes allotted for the most successful candidates.
About 6 o’clock, upwards of one hundred Gentlemen and Farmers sat down to a most excellent dinner, provided for them, in the spacious Lancasterian School-room of Tynan, by Mr. Jas. Fair. The President, Sir James Strong, Bart. was voted to the Chair—and the Vice-Presidents, Major Close, and Captains Atcheson and St. George, sat on his right and left. Before the usual toasts, on such occasions, were given, the Chairman requested the Secretary to read the decisions of the Judges, which were as follow [sic]:
First Prize—To Mr. Denis Norton ; second do., to the Ploughman of Wm. Irwin, Esq. ; third do., to Mr. E. Kilpatrick ; fourth do., to the Ploughman of Sir James Strong ; fifth do., to the Ploughman of Atcheson St. George, Esq. ; sixth do., to Mr. Robt. Johnson ; seventh do., to Mr. Alex. Roberts ; eighth do., to Mr. James Vogan ; ninth do., to the Ploughman of Mr. Donald Frazer. The lo?s 7, 8, 16, 20 and 22, were well done, but much under the statute.
After the announcement of the above, the following toasts were given from the Chair :
The King—four times four.
The Lord High Admiral and the Navy—three times three.
Lord Hill and the Army—three times three.
The Lord Lieutenant and prosperity to Ireland—three times three.
Prosperity to the Tynan Branch of the North-east Society.

Lieut. Strong (a youth about 17 years of age) returned thanks in a manly and energetic style.— At the conclusion of his address I understood him to say, that no matter where his profession might lead him, he could never, never forget the people of Tynan. They should ever hold as they did then, a deep interest in his heart and affections ; and the knowledge of their prosperity would always have the power of adding to his happiness. He trusted that, while he had the honor of holding his Majesty’s commission, he would never suffer disgrace, like a dark stain, to sully the brightness of that sword, with which his worthy relative on his right (Major Close) had so kindly presented him.
The two worthy Vice-Presidents.
Major Close, and Acheson St. George, Esq. returned thanks.
The Treasurer, Secretary and Committee, for their warm exertions on behalf of the Society.
Messrs. Oliver and Magrath, together with Mr. Sinclair, on the part of the Committee, returned thanks in a neat and appropriate manner.
The Chairman said—Gentlemen, I now call upon your gallantry—and when I ask, was gallantry ever neglected in any meeting where the heart of a true-born Irishman throbbed?— Gentlemen, it is with feelings of unmingled pleasure I give you
The Ladies of the Parish of Tynan.—(Immense cheering.)
Lord Caledon, and the Caledon Branch of the North-west Society.
Mr. Alexander returned thanks.
Colonel Lucas and the Erne Society.
Colonel Lucas returned thanks in an eloquent speech, and gave a general outline of the proceedings of other Societies in Ireland.
Live, and let live.
About 10 o’clock, the Chairman, attended by the greater part of the company, retired—highly gratified with the uninterrupted harmony which prevailed during the entire day. R. M’E.
The North-East Society’s show of fat cattle and springers will be held in Belfast, on Wednesday the 9th of April.
