      Mr. Joshua Magee, coroner for Newry, has reported to the London Times
      the circumstances of the barbarous murder of Mr. Mauleverer, with his own

      gentleman holding the office of coroner. Mr. Magee also transmitted a copy
      of process served on a Winow Larkin, next he charges the murdered gentleman

      and finally throws the patient into a refreshing sleep. On awakening, he
      finds himself restored to health, with the exception of the general weakness
      which always succeeds any physical prostration. Dr. Macrea has tested his
      mode of practice upon fifteen European seamen, who have been carried to the
      Howrah Hospital in the last stage of the disease, and the patient has in
      every instance recovered.

      land shall no longer be cultivated to a style a century behind every well
      farmed portion of the kingdom. He has intimated to his tenantry that the
