whereat it was propqsed to present an ad

Mr. Bracken objected, at the same time ask

Ireland? The qhpirman, Mr. Murtagh, J. P., w
thbught that they might move in the matter.
Mr. Lystbr dfd'not see why they'should in
terfere. The object of the Prince was "to

A correspondent writing from Athlone, Q
under date of the Ilth ult., says: A sad ac- L
cident occurred yesterday at the new Catho- ul
lic chapel of Moste, some seven miles from E
this town. A young man named Ward, cc
aged eighteen years, was-bringing a hod of "'
mortar to some masons,_who were engaged C,
in building a portion of a wall, when the '
scaffold en which he walked gave way, and Q
he was' precipitated to the ground, a dis- v
tance of tvtween fifty and sixty feet. In 01
the fall the unfortunate young man came in te
contact with some pillars, and on reaching
the ground was so horribly mutilated that w
he could scarcely be identified. In a few tc
minutes later another young man, named e1
Cuddy, and hitafather, were removing some a
stones ap a second ~saibld; it also came n'
down. The two men, together with four ti
other masons, came to the ground, all of o'
them suartlad.g very severe injuries. One
of the masonms whosename was not ascer- hi
tained .but who is a native of Roscommon, C
had his epinal coltann broken -wd his right de
leg fractured. All the injuied men are mar- O
ried. I

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. 'The ease wais dism issed,.ane
