      FATAL ACCIDENT TO A POLICE CONSTABLE - On Saturday evening Constable
      Thomas Cahill, of the Slate-quarry police station, near Piltown, met with an
      accident which almost instantaneously deprived him of his life Having
      observed John Walsh, Esq., J.P., Fanningtown, ride into the neighbouring
      yard of a miller named Crolly, the Constable ran out of the barrack to order
      to make some communication to that gentleman, but whilst turning hastily
      into Crolly's yard, he slipped and was precipitated forward, his head
      striking the angle of the gate pier with such force that he never spoke
      after, and expired in ten minutes. The deceased was a man of excellent
      character in the force, in which he had served for about 20 years; he was
      unmarried, and had saved a very considerable sum of money for a person of
      his station.-- Kilkenny Moderator.

      ANCIENT IRISH HATCHET - A few days ago a fine specimen of the Irish
      bronze age was dug up at Ballylesson, near that celebrated monument of
      antiquity, the "Giant's Ring" It is about five inches long, and of the early
      wedge-like shape; but what makes it interesting is, that on both sides it is
      covered with long and short strokes, very like those marks that are called
      the "Ogham" character. It is in the possession of Mr. Corry, of the
      Post-office. --Belfast News-Letter.
