A curious fine monument is finished by Mr CHEERE in London, and sent to Ireland to be erected in the memory of the Rt Hon Theobald Lord Viscount Mayo, on which is the following inscription

A faithful friend, a dutiful son,
An affectionate Brother,
And a tender Husband;
He passed through Life
With unblemished Honour, beloved and esteemed
By all that knew him
His manners were easy,
His Temper gentle and humane;
The knowledge of his high birth
Had no other Effect upon him,
Than to make it his Study, in all the Offices of Life
To live up to the Character, to which he was born,
Being sensible that truest Nobility
Is that of the Mind;
And to possess it in the highest degree,
Is to walk in the paths of Virtue;
Which he did to the day of his death.
He died at London the 7th day of January 1741,
In the 36th year of his Age,
Much lamented, but by none more sincerely
Than by his much beloved consort,
Alice, Lady Viscountess Mayo,
The eldest Daughter of James AGAR
Of Gowran in the county of Kilkenny, Esq;
And of his wife, Daughter of Sir Henry WEMYS,
By whom he had two sons, Theobald and Agar,
Who both died young.
In Testimony of the affectionate Respect,
Which his Lady
Most deservedly retains for his Memory,
This Monument was by her erected.

An occurrence of a very extraordinary kind took palce a few days since in the county Wexford, at Clough-east-Castle, the seat of Dr Richard WADDY – Doctor WADDY having rendered himself very obnoxious to the rebels by his active loyalty during the rebellion, particularly concerned in the apprehension of Bagenal HARVEY, found it necessary for the safety of his life to reside in an old vaulted Castle of Clough-east, where the entrance of his bed-chamber was secured by an antique portcullis; Thus fortified, Dr Waddy had hitherto defied all threats of assination which came againsthim from every side. A few days ago, a mendicant popish friar of Taghmon, named BURN, visited the doctor in his castle, and was hospitably entertained at dinner – in the evening, when it was time to part, BURN begged to be allowed to remain, and after some difficulty on the part of his host, was permitted to lie in a second bed in the vaulted chamber. While the Doctor and the friar were going to their beds, the friar expressed great anxiety that his host should say his prayers, a duty which the Doctor, who had drank freely, seemed disposed to neglect; in the middle of the night, Doctor WADDY heard sombody drawing his cavalry sword, which hung at his bed's head, and immediately after was attacked by the friar, and was now endeavouring to murder his host; the latter received several wounds in the head and arm, and at length the friar supposing that he had accomplished his purpose, attempted escape under the portcullis. Doctor WADDY had just strength enough remaining to loose the cord which supported it, and it fell on the priest with such violence, almost to sever his body, which fell down lifeless into the apartment below. the next morning the body of the friar was found, and the servants, going into their master's apartment, found him covered in his own blood – Immediate medical aid was had, and we have the satisfaction of hearing that Doctor WADDY is now out of danger. A Coroner's Inquest was held on the body of BURN, and the jury (composed of the Roman Catholic inhabitants of the neighbourhood) found a verdict of "accidental death" – Flk JlCurious

About eight o'clock this morning, three post-chaises were observed driving rapidly over the bridge of Knockengin, which joins the counties of Dublin and Meath. They immediately drove to the strand contiguous to the county of Meath, and the persons that were in them having alighted, proceeded to the business of marking out the ground and charging the pistols, for a duel between two gentlemen, one of the name of DREW, and the other of O'BRIEN. Whatever the cause of quarrel might have been, it was soon decided, for on taking their places, and the signal being given by the seconds, they fired together, when instantaneously Mr. D. fell, dead! his opponent's ball having entered his forehead over the left eye, passing through the brain, and coming out at the back of his head! By this time numbers of the peasantry were assembled on the banks above the shore, something like an indistinct murmur was expressed, of taking the survivor into custody, but this was prevented by the immediate flight of himself and second to the post-chaise, which drove off with them with the rapidity of lightning—nor were the rest of the party flow in following—for before a quarter of an hour elapsed from their arrival, all had disappeared, leaving the breathless, bleeding body of their companion to the promiscuous care of the surrounding multitude.

DIED—On Thursday the 12 Day of April, after a lingering and painful illness, at St Vuleri, in the county of Wiklow, Joseph Cooper WALKER, Esq. member or many literary and philosophical societies. The loss of the accomplished scholar will be long and deeply deplored by all true votaries of science and the arts; but those only who have had the happiness to be included in the circle of his friends, can justly appreciate, and duly regret, the many virtues which dignified, and the numerous points adorned hip character. A frame of peculiar __ity incapacitated Mr. WALKER for the exercise of an active profession and early withdrew his mind from the busy bustle of the world to the more congenial occupations of literary retirement.—The intervals of pain and sickness, which are usually passed in languor or in pleasure, were by him devoted to the cultivation of those objects of science and taste of which he had been so early and so fondly enamoured. As a critic and an antiquarian Mr. Walker was equally distinguished. The Italian muse, rendered familiar in his polished pages, has through him became a denizen of these Western Isles; and the Essays on Irish manner and Customs (the offspring of his vigorous mind, at a period when many young men are not yet emancipated from the tyranny of pupil-age) evince a maturity of judgment, a soundness of criticism and a rare of learning which would not disgrace the name of venerable VALLANCEY. Never was there any man who united in a higher degree, the accomplishment, of the gentleman, with the attainments of the scholar.—His polished manners, refined attainments, his easy flow of wit, his classical taste and his profound erudition, rendered his conversation as fascinating as it was instructive. The rare qualities of his heart procured for him the most devoted attachment of relatives and friends, and the affectionate regards of all who knew him. At a period when it is fashionable to be altogether English, this true patriot felt and avowed his ardent attachment to, and decided preference for the country of his birth; he devoted the powers of his comprehensive mind to vindicate the injured character, and to enlighten the disputed History of Ireland.— He dwelt with delight on her wild romantic scenery—he loved the generous, the energenic character of her children: the Irish language to his ears was full of harmony and force, and the songs of her bards ruled his patriotic soul with rapturous emotion—he was indeed an Irishman of Ireland;s purest times. Mr. WALKER was in the 48th year of his age, and breathed his last sigh in the arms of a brother and sister, whose peculiar sorrow equally elude consolation and description.Curious

At the house of her brother T F BOWERBANK, Vicar of Chiswick, Iasbel BOWERBANK, only surviving sister, aged 22, following their youngest brother Edward, aged twenty three, and their sister Mary, aged twenty four, to the grave, within a period of ten months. — the circumstances attending the deaths of these four young persons are very remarkable. — their brother Edward arrived from India; labouring under deep consumption: his sister Mary came to Bristol to see him, at Chiswick, but would not be persuaded of his danger, until she had heard the decided opinions of the medical attendant to an indifferent person, for which purpose she concealed herself behind the curtain. "Now" said she, "I am satisfied — I hope I shall not survive him." She was taken ill next morning and, after twelve days died, preceding the object of her tender solicitude to the grave by exactly a month. – Similar, but more awful, has been the fate of poor Isabel. For several months past it has been her repeated declaration, both by letter and words, that anxious as she might be to have health and strength to administer to the comforts of her lingering sister, yet, as soon as be scene of her suffering should close, life would become indifferent to herself. On the 5th inst. Her sister was buried. On Friday she accompanied her brother to Chiswick, where she arrived without the least fatigue on Saturday. On Sunday, after a few hours of apparently trifling indisposition, from which she appeared to be fast recovering, in the act of making some refreshment, she raised her eyes, and, without least change of feature or posture, immediately expired! — They were four of the six children of the late Rev Edward BOWERBANK, Rector of Croft and Baringham, and Prebendary of Lincoln.Curious

In the city civil court the case of SULLIVAN against TUCKEY for a breach of promise of marriage, occupied the court from four o'clock to nine at night of Friday. It appeared the plaintiff was a servant in the house of the father of defendant, receiving wages of two guineas a year—the young gentleman had just returned from college, and having become deeply enamoured with his fair desdemona, wrote some very loving letters, which did much more credit to the galantry of his heart than the sagacity of his head— it appeared that the birth of a lovely babe was the consequence of the attachment— in consequence of the interference of his friends, the young gentleman was induced to give up all hopes of enjoying Miss SULLIVAN as his bride— but she was determined not to be treated so cavalierly with impunity, and therefore brought her action. Mr Serjeant M'MAHON, in a very able speech maintained the maid was the seducer and the young man seduced but the jury, it seems, thought otherewise, for they returned a verdict of 100 guineas against the defendant

Court in Irons
Dwyer v. Peacock.
In noticing the arguments which been used some time since in this case, it was it erroneously stated that they arose out of a replevla cause; whereas the following is a more correct detail of the previous proceedings and at the final judgment which was on Friday pronounced in this Court:
It was an action of trespass tried before Baron Pennefather at the last Limerick Assizes. The plaintiff was tenant to a Mr. Ellard, to whom the defendant (a Clergyman) was agent, and an arrear of rent having become due, Mr. Ellard brought an ejectment for non-payment of rent, recovered judgment, and executed his habere; but after obtaining judgment, and previous to execution of the habere, defendant by directions of Mt. Ellard, distrained and sold hay, potatoes, and corn, notwithstanding a cautionary notice from plaintiff. Defendant pleaded soil and freehold; and the general issue, and the Jury found for the defendant. At the trial the following points were saved for the plaintiff, and came on to be argued is this Court on Thursday and Friday last:—1st, that the town of Pallis, where the goods were sold, was not a market town, either by prescription or charter, as required by the Statute. Secondly, That defendant could not legally distrain after judgement and previous to execution of the habere. And, lastly, that the sale was had contrary to laws after fifteen days from data of distraint had expired.
Upon the argument plaintiff's Counsel abandoned the third point; as plaintiff had acquiesced in the delay.
The Chief Justice gave judgment at length upon the two points argued.
The first point, that respecting the market town, the Court over-ruled, as the plaintiff had acquiesced in the sale at the town of Pallis.— The second point, 'that the landlord could not legally distrain after judgment, and previous to execution of habere, was (his Lordship said) to he decided by either of two tests, viz.—That if the lease had not determined, and the plaintiff tenant in possession, then the landlord had his statuteable right to distrain under 5 Geo. 2; and if the lease had determined, then the landlord, by the 9th Anne, was authorised to distrain within six months after the lease had expired; and therefore the Court over-ruled all the points and confirmed the verdict for the defendant.

The only case that appeared for investigation was that of a man named John MEAGHER, who was found at an unseasonable hour, last night, in the Convent of St. Clare.— This unfortunate creature was examined by the bench, and voluntarily made the followning statement:— That he was a blacksmith by trade; admitted scaling the Nunnery wall, and that his sole object in getting into the premises was the hope of being transported; that he was excommunicated about 15 months ago (for stealing a silver chalice out of the Convent Chapel,) since which period he has been refused employment everywhere he applied; is reduced to the most extreme distress; has not been suffered to enter any house; lives by begging a few potatoes and is obliged to roast them in a lime-kiln; no one, not even his brother, would know him or hold community with him; is almost in a state of nakedness and actually starving from want and misery; transportation would be a relief for him.
  This singular and lamentable detail made a considerable impression on the Court: the unfortunate wretch was truly an object of pity. The porter of the Nunnery, William O'MEALY, then swore informations against him, and he was committed to stand trial at the ensuing assizes.
  The Mayor observed, that if the prosecution failed, he might be indicted as a vagrant, and thus his wished would be accomplished.

Singular Cricket Match

On Tuesday considerable bustle and amusement occurred at Parson's-green, Walham, and vicinity, in consequence of a match of cricket being played between eleven married and eleven single females. The match was made for the sum of 10l. and a hot supper. At ten in the forenoon a tent was erected on the Green, and soon afterwards the wickets were pitched. A vast assemblage of persons were congregated to witness the sport amongst whom were some of the most respectable inhabitants.The married women wore light blue dresses, their waists and heads being decorated with ribbons of the same colour; the single women were attired in close white dresses with pink sashes and cap-bows. The game commenced about eleven, the married taking the first innings, and obtaining 47 runs. The single then commenced play and were not so successful, the whole being bowled out after 29 runs. The two next innings were played and the game was won by the single women, but only by seven runs. After the match was over, country dances, accompanied by a band of music, took place on the green, and in the evening the supper was provided at the White Horse. The whole was a very amusing animated scene. ...Globe

Death of Charles HOLMES, Esq
  We have to record the death of a venerable and worthy man – Charles HOLMES, Esq., of Kilquane – who lived far beyond the term allotted to the human race, and who, during a very prolonged career, won the esteem, the respect, and the affection of all who were acquainted with his admirable disposition and honourable character.  : He was father to Messrs. Robert and J HOLMES of Athlunkard.  He had reached the patriarchial age of 104 years, in the perfect enjoyment of every faculty until the day of his death, which took place on Wednesday, the 31st ult.  He was always of active and energetic habits–of a tranquil and sprightly temperament.  He remembered well many of those men who had taken part in the last seiges of Limerick; and it was his custom to speak of incidents in the olden times with delight.  His remains were this day conveyed to their last resting place of his ancestors in the old Churchyard of Kilquane, attended by a numerous and highly respectable funeral procession.– R.I.P.
