At Sandymount, near Dublin, on the 5th instant, of a typhus fever, in the
16th year of heritage, Miss Ellen Leonard, second daughter of Joseph Leonard,
late of Rock Lodge, near this town. This young and amiable creature was snatched
off after a few days illness, being the third victim of this truly afflicted
family to the unsatiable tyrant, Death, within the short period of a few weeks.
On Wednesday night, at the early hour of ten o'clock, a number of
dwelling-houses, the property of Mr. J.D. Croker, were set on fire and totally
consumed on the lands of Upper Quartertowe (or Quartertown)?, near Mallow. The
houses were all occupied, and being situate in the Manor of Mallow, were
Freeholders. Several men have been taken up on suspicion, but no clue had been
obtained that would lead to the establishing the guilt of the parties.
Dublin, March 6- We regret to have to state the loss of his Majesty's
cutter Dwarf, commanded by Lieutenant Gould, in the tremendous gale of Tuesday
morning, on the East Pier. She was lying at the Shamrock moorings, from which
she parted at 8 A.M. She had one anchor down, and immediately let go the other,
and rode by them until nine o'clock when she parted her small bower anchor and
drove on shore. The sea was making a break quite over the Pier, when she drove
alongside of it; the men all got safe on shore, except one, who fell overboard,
and was crushed between the vessel and the pier.
