   At Tullylish Church, on the 1st of April, by the Rev. Thomas Beatty, Rector, Mr. John Davison, of Gilford, to the amiable and accomplished Miss Elizabeth Salt, of the City of Dublin. Immediately after the ceremony the happy pair set off for their country house, Castlehill where a sumptuous dinner was prepared for the occasion.



   At the Deanery, Armagh, on the 30th ult., aged 65 years, Martha, wife of Mr. John Reilly, of said place, and mother to Mrs. John Dodd, of Newry. In her, the poor have lost a kind benefactress--her husband and children, a loving wife and parent--and they now mourn her loss, comforted, however, with the assurance that she died trusting in, and relying on, her Almighty Saviour for eternal life.

   On the 22d ult. at her father’s house, in Cullen’s wood Avenue, in the bloom of youth, Arabella Harding, youngest daughter of Henry Harding, Esq. of the Treasury.

   Suddenly, in Dublin, on Monday morning, Mr. R. M’Elheeny, Printer.


   Daring Murder near Tallow.--On Sunday evening the 16th ult. a most daring murder was perpetrated within two miles of this town. Soon after sunset, two ruffians proceeded to the house of Michael Neil Temple, of Valley, and while the unfortunate man was sitting at the fire-side, nearly opposite his wife, and surrounded by his children, he received through a back window the contents of a gun heavily loaded with slugs, in the left breast, that instantly deprived him of life almost without a struggle. Among the many instances of outrage that occurred in the County of Cork for years past, it has not been our lot to hear of a more deliberate or cruel act of assassination. It appears the deceased (rather a litigious character) had lately been on bad terms with the family of his wife, people of the name of Cody, with whom he held a joint property, and in the scuffles that daily occurred between them, threats of a serious nature are said to have been frequently uttered by the latter.--Cork Constitution.

   Letters from Clifden, in the County of Mayo, announce a circumstance which has plunged the entire country into mourning. John Evans, Esq., son of a highly respectable gentleman, Thomas Evans, Esq., was passing his large pleasure boat, in company with Mrs. Evans, from his father's house, at Cleggan, to the house of his father in-law, at Lanesburgh, and owing to the starting of a plant, the vessel went down, and Mr. and Mrs. Evans were never seen afterwards! They were only married five months, and had all the personal as well as mental attractions to render them objects of interest to all who saw them, and of the sincerest respect and affection to their kindred and acquaintances. Every shop in Clifden was closed on the last market day, and the same demonstration of sorrow and affection was observed in Westport. Mrs. Evans's maiden name was O'Donnell. she was in the very morning of life, and her husband was only in the 21st year.---No pen can describe the agony of mind into which their melancholy fate has plunged the entire circle of their numerous friends and acquaintances.


   Galliot, Burned.--The Margaret, galliot, of this port, John Ennis, master, was burnt to the water's edge, on Wednesday last, in Skerries Roads. She was laden with coals, and linen and cotton yarn, from Liverpool, homeward bound, and had taken shelter in the Roads, with some other vessels, from the gale. The cabin-fire ignited a bale of yarn which was laid against the bulkhead, in the hold, and before the accident was perceived, the fire had made considerable progress. Captain Owens, of the Town of Drogheda, Steamer, which was moored 100 yards from the Margaret, immediately on perceiving the fire, ordered out his boats and crew to her relief; the carpenter proceeded to scuttle her, which from the agitation of the sea, was with much difficulty effected, and not until the masts, rigging, sails, and deck were completely destroyed. The crew were taken on board the Town of Drogheda, which arrived here on Thursday morning. We understand the hull would not be worth the expense of raising it.--Drogheda Journal.

   The Margaretta, Thomas Evans, Captain, with a cargo of 1256 barrels of Wheat, and 139 cwt. of Flour, which sailed from Waterford to Liverpool on the 15th inst. was run down off Point Lynas, on the night of the 18th inst., by a vessel from South America, called the Brothers, and totally lost. The crew were saved, and landed from the Brothers in Liverpool on the following day.


   We can state upon unquestionable authority that it is the intention of his Royal Highness the Lord High Admiral to visit this country in the latter part of July next. Arrangements of the most splendid description for his reception are in progress at Rostellan, the seat of the Marquis of Thomond. His Royal Highness also intends to honor Mitchelstown, the residence of Earl Kingston, by a visit; and after sojourning there for a few days, the Royal Duke means to proceed to Barton on a visit to the Duke of Leinster.--Evening Paper.


   We are authorised, by Sir Harcourt Lees, to state, that he has changed his intention of attending at the quarterly meeting of the "Benevolent Orange Society." He gives several reasons for delaying, at present, his visit to the North---into which we think it unnecessary for us to enter.
