Limerick, March 24 -The Sheriff of this county has received a respite until further orders, for Mr Dolmage, convicted of killing his antagonist in a duel, by which the life of this unfortunate gentleman is spared.

Thursday morning last, the wife of John Freeze, farmer, at Cloondrina, in the North Liberties of this city, was found dead in her bed: several marks of violence were observed on her head and body; and her husband having absconded, little doubt was entertained of his being her inhuman murderer. The Coroner's Inquest sat yesterday, and examined two servant men, and two women, who, in order to screen the wretched perpetrator, had agreed upon one story, which fortunately for the ends of justice, was discovered to be false; and a full confession made, that on Wednesday night Freeze had beat his wife unmercifully, and put an end to her existence by repeated strokes of a brass candlestick.
