      Wednesday, July 24, 1850



      ASSAULT - On last Saturday a boy named Thomas Neary from Coolearney was
      attacked near the hill of Ardnaree by Mark and Antony Kilmartin, who jumped
      on the poor fellow's body, and kicked him on the head, from the effects of
      which he now lies dangerously ill. The Kilmartin's were immediately arrested
      by the Ardnaree police and committed to bridewell. The cause of this assault
      is supposed to be that the boy Neary informed the revenue-police of illicit
      whiskey being in the possession of these men, who live in the same
      neighbourhood.

      A CENTENARIAN - At the petty sessions of Monaghan, on Tuesday, a man aged
      116 years, named Cormac Duffy, was examined as a witness. He walked into
      town from his residence, a distance of nearly four miles, and gave his
      testimony with great distinctness. He walked with the "Hearts of Oak" some
      time about the middle of the last century, and lived as a labourer and
      caretaker with one employer for 67 years.

      EMIGRATION - Upwards of 400 persons left yesterday by the Liverpool steamers
      for America. Among the emigrants, we understand, there are 200 paupers from
