      DUBLIN, MAY 4.
      The six police, convicted of manslaughter at the Maryborough Assizes, are
      on their way to embark at Cork for Botany Bay.
      Yesterday, an inquest was held in Bride's-alley, on the body of Patrick
      Corr, by Alderman Montgomery. The Jury returned the following verdict.- "It
      appears to the Jury, that a quarrel took place in the public house kept by Mrs.
      Raverty, in Ship-street, between Patrick Corr and Thomas Murphy, and blows were
      interchanged; and, in half an hour afterwards, said Corr was found to have a
      wound which caused his death; and, from Patrick Corr's dying declaration, we are
      of opinion Murphy inflicted said wound."
      The deceased has left family; he was a broker, and resided in
      Bride's-alley. Murphy is a pensioned Quarter-master, and had been in habits of
      intimacy with the deceased, and met him frequently at the public house where the
      unfortunate termination of their friendship took place. The prisoner, after the
      inquest had closed, was conveyed by Mr. Farrell to Newgate in a coach. The
      investigation created great interest in the neighbourhood.
      The Catholic Clergyman who was imprisoned at Newry as mentioned in a former
      Paper, has been admitted to bail.
