On Monday morning week, as a fly boat from Athy to Dublin was passing through the 18th dock, one of the passengers, a Mrs. M'CANN, of Castlecomer (who had never been on the canal before) became very much agitated and alarmed, and in less than half an hour was seized with premature labour.— There were only three other passengers in the after cabin, whom the captain of the boat permitted to go into the first, leaving the other to Mrs. M'CANN, who, before she reached Sallins, added two boys and a girl to the number on board.—On reaching Dublin she was put into comfortable lodgings, and, with her three little ones, is getting on as well as possible. Mr. M'CANN, the husband, was also a passenger, and seemed highly delighted, these being his first born.—Dublin paper.
