STATE OF TIPPERARY. -- Again comes the often-repeated and sickening task of recording another of those bloody deeds which from their unhappy frequency have ceased to excite to any great extent the feelings of surprise and horror which the bare narration of such atrocities ought naturally to produce. The last victim to the conspiracy was a man named James ARDILL, who held the humble situation of ploughman to Mr. Joseph FALKENER, of Rodeen, near Borrisokane, and in the immediate vicinage of Finnoe, the scene of the late memorable tragedy. Early on Wednesday morning, and when within a few doors of his own cabin, and in the very hearing of his family, ARDILL was overtaken by a party of men, who immediately fell upon and savagely murdered him by striking him several blows on the head with weapons called "skull crackers," any one of which would have been quite sufficient to cause instant death. His wife and children, on hearing his shrieks for help, rushed to his assistance only in time to discover him a mutilated corpse. Up to last night there was not the slightest trace of the assassins. The unhappy man was a Protestant, and stated to be so perfectly inoffensive, that no complaint, save his creed, can be assigned as the cause of his wretched doom.
LORD DE GRAY. -- We are able to contradict, in the most distinct and positive terms, the statement that the Cabinet has resolved upon the recall of Earl De GRAY from the Vice-royalty of Ireland. There is not one word of truth in the story, or even a shadow of foundation for it. The colleagues in office of the noble Earl have every reason to be satisfied with, nay, grateful for, the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland's conduct in his arduous office, and he is not the man to abandon his post in circumstances like those in which Ireland is now placed. The fable which we contradict is merely one of the natural productions of the season. The least observant reader of newspapers knows that such fabrications come as regularly at this time of year as the short days -- we were going to say the snow, but that has not this year kept time as regularly as the political fabulists. We repeat it there is no more truth in the story than in the projected repeal of the Corn Laws, which we had to contradict not many days since. Earl De GREY is Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, and will remain Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland as long as it shall please him; and we trust it will please him to remain to the enjoyment of that public triumph in laying the foundation of which he has had so large a share. -- Standard.
