About three o'clock Friday, a woman named Agnes Moore, who resided at a place
called Rungill, about three miles below Carrickfergus, died from what is
supposed the effects of poison taken by her whilst labouring under an aberration
of the mind. She was the wife of a respectable farmer, and about a twelvemonth
ago was an inmate of the Armagh Lunatic Asylum, for some time, and was
discharged recovered. She again became deranged and in this state of mind, it is
supposed took the poison.--Belfast Chronicle.
William Duncan, attired in the garb of a pilgrim, of rather venerable
appearance, without hat and shoes, was brought up at the Limerick police-office
last week, having been arrested as a suspicious character. A sum of £69 9s 6d
was found in his possession which he said he intended to distribute in charity
to the destitute poor! He stated he was formerly a corn factor in Kilrush and
has property in England. Mr. Barron, R.M., ordered his discharge.
