CLARE.--At the last Coumity Clare Quar ter Session, an action of a somewhat simi lar character came before the court, in which Mr. Michael Duffy, recently an as sistant in theEnnia4 post-office, appeared to be the plaintiff and Mr. Frisby, the post master, as the defendant. It appeared that in February last, a package containing nlu cifer matches was put into the receiver, addressed to Mr. Duffy, and in which he found a letter which he subsequently de stroyed. Mr. Frisby eventually thought it requisite to discharge the plaintiff, owing to his connection ~'ithl the transaction, and tihe action was brought to recover the sum of £7 10s., alleged to have been withheld by defenldant, although he hadl drawn it as '" salary for assistant post-master" from the government.
