Melancholy Accident.---Mrs. M'Laughlin, of Ballyfatten, an aged woman, returning from this town on Saturday evening last, passing through a meadow Field, convenient to her own house, in attempting to step over a small drain, unfortunately fell in on her face, and her hands being wrapped in her Cloak, was suffocated before she was discovered.
The extraordinary produce of drilled potatoes, under the management of Thomas M'Dougal, Esq. of Waterford, has awakened more attention throughout this country than any other circumstance of the kind has ever done. It has particularly attracted the notice of the Farming Society of Ireland, and will form a part of their important records. The mode of culture, adopted by Mr. M'Dougall, has been a matter of most anxious enquiry. It affords us real pleasure, to be able to lay before our readers an authorised statement of the manner in which the field was cultivated, and we would earnestly press it upon general attention, as affording most valuable and useful information. A competent judge, and on whose opinion the most perfect reliance may be placed, has told us, that all the publications on Farming, which he has perused, are very defective in treating of the drill culture of potatoes. An experiment, therefore, such as this, not circumscribed by any authorities, ... pursued upon all sound and practical principl... must be of incalculable advantage to every ... who wishes to promote his own prosperity, ... that of his country.

| SHOCKING MURDER.---Under
deep felt and contending emotions of horror, indignation and distress,
we have this day to record the murder of Mr. Corry Horst, a respectable
Revenue Officer, who was treacherously shot, in the streets of
Ballyshannon, about 11 o'clock on the night of Thursday last. He was
returning from Mr. Donogher's Inn to his own lodging near the bridge,
in company with a Mr. Green, when, passing the Market-house, where, it
would seem the deliberate assassins lay in wait, a man approached, and
after hesitating a little, as if to discriminate and ascertain his
object, discharged a pistol at Mr. H. suspecting, as it is conjectured,
that their sanguinary purpose was unaccomplished, Mr. H. not having
fallen, another immediately advanced, levelled closer, and fired a
second shot, which passing thro' his body, he fell on his face,
exclaiming he was killed and almost instantly expired. Favoured by the
darkness of night, the lateness of the hour, and by the confusion
inseparable from such a fatal affair, the villains effected their
escape for the present, dropping, in their alarm and hurry, one of the
pistols, a ramrod and shoe newly soled, which were afterwards found on
the road by which they fled. For the commission of this cold blooded
and preconcerted assassination, than which the long and frightful
calander [sic] of human guilt records not one deed stained with a
blacker character of crime, no possible motive, as we are informed, can
be assigned, but that the deceased was an officer active, honest and
incorruptible in the discharge of his duty.
Upon such erroneous pretence, or from some resentment not unfrequently incurred by the most indulgent performance of official obligation, could these implacable wretches conceive and perpetrate a deed, which stabs at the very vitals of civil security---against which, not only the vengeance of eternal justice is peculiarly denounced, and the thunder of the laws unsparingly hurled---but to punish which, society itself in one instinctive and common energy is up in arms. It is impossible therefore the atrocious perpetrators can long escape undetected. We emphatically say, it is impossible ; for the prayers of outraged humanity, the cries of innocent blood untimely spilt, will be heard, and retribution visited upon the guilty monsters.
The Magistrates and inhabitants of Ballyshannon and that neighbourhood have taken up the business with the spirit and promptitude due to public tranquillity, to the character of the deceased, and to themselves. A subsription reward for the discovery of the villains, was at once set on foot, and was met here with a liberal and zealous co-operation on the part of the Gentlemen of this County, of which Mr. Hurts was a native. The publication of this reward, is, as we conceive injudiciously, deferred, for the purpose of obtaining further signatures. The effect which the measure is so well calculated to produce, must be rendered less than certain by delay, as every moment thus lost is so much time afforded the ruffians to put themselves beyond the reach of detection. Such exertions, nonetheless, aided by whatever further means the Excise Board must feel it their duty to adopt, will, we trust, enable us in a short time to announce the discovery of the savage and remorseless assassins.---The morning after the murder an inquest was held on the body---Verdict, Wilful Murder against some person or persons unknown.---Erne Packet.

We are sorry to learn, that the gale which was felt here on Friday the 16th instant, was very general over every part of the kingdom, and in most places, most disastrous in its effects. The shipping in the Clyde has suffered heavily, almost every vessel having been driven on shore. The Eliza, of Londonderry, Captain O'Scally, parted her moorings at the Troon, and upset, when immediately the Cabin was filled with water, and twelve passengers and a seaman unfortunately perished. The galiot Adventure, of Irvine, John Fife, Master, bound from Drogheda to Londonderry, was drove on shore at the same moment, but happily no lives were lost. It is expected that the cargo, consisting of Oats, for Messrs. J. A. Smyth and Co. and Whiskey for Smith, Lee, and Smyth, will be saved. We have just learned, that a sloop from Sligo, bound for Glasgow, laden with provisions, was totally wrecked at St. John's Point, near Killybegs, on the above night---crew saved. We have not heard of any accident or damage having been done in this town or neighbourhood, by the storm.
and during the whole of
yesterday it blew a most tremendous gale from the N. W. and
considerable damage was done to many of the houses in town, it was even
dangerous to walk the streets, from the quantities of chimney tops and
slates tht were falling in every direction.
