      DUBLIN- SATURDAY, MAY 1.
      ELECTION OF A LORD MAYOR.
      A Quarter-Assembly of the Corporation was held yesterday, for the purpose
      of electing a Lord Mayor and Sheriffs for the ensuing year. After some routine
      business had been dispensed of , a Message was sent down by the Board,
      intimating that they had chosen Alderman Jones, the Alderman next in rotation,
      to fill the Office of Chief Magistrate. A ballot having been demanded, the
      numbers were.-
      White ?eans, 43- black do, 40-majority, 3.
      A vote of thanks was then passed by the present Lord Mayor, after which the
      House preceeded to elect the Sheriffs. There were twelve candidates; eight of
      whose names were sent up to the Board. After a short period, it was intimated
      that Messrs. Lloyd and Morrison had been elected. As those Gentlemen, we
      understand, intend to pay the fine, a new Election must take place.

      ROBBERY- As Mr. Hines of Northcumberland-street was on Friday evening last,
      about eight o'clock, proceeding to the yard of the General Post Office, a man,
      supposed to be placed at the gate to prevent the admission of strangers, stopped
      him, when he was immediately surrounded by a gang of the light fingered gentry,
      who succeeded in easing him of the inconvenience of carrying a valuable gold
      watch, chain and seals. Information was immediately lodged at Marlborough-street
      Police Office, and a reward of ten pounds offered for its recovery, but as yet
      the prigs have not been brought to bail.--Dublin Paper.
