Mapp, of Richards' Castle, in this county, was flogging one of his horses in the stable with a whip, the animal kicked him in the chest with both his legs. He crawled out of the stable into a bay; a surgeon was sent for, but his services were of no avail, for after lingering 23 hours in most agonizing pain, death terminated his sufferings. An inquest was held on Tuesday week, be- fore H. T. Fluck, Esq., deputy coroner, when a verdict of accidental death was returned.-HeTeford Journal.

NIEDEK. SELTERS.—The Nieder Selters Spring has been the object of numerous researches both to chemists and naturalists. The igneous power 'of the earth are unquestionably employed in its production. To be con- vinced of the fact, one has only to examine the basin of the Emsbach and Taunus. The central fire of the earth has singularly influenced the configuration of the Taunian chain and adjoining country. All the springs which arise in the Taunus, and indeed, in the whole duchy of Nassau, are found, as in the Caucasus, to take their origin, in vol- canic formation, in a series of basaltic rocks, which are reft asunder, as it were, to afford them a clear passage. Germany, the cradle of Werner, Buch, Humboldt, and Leonard, contains not a single canton which remains un- explored by scientific devotees. The Taunian chain, particularly, has been the Theatre of many and profound explorations, which all demonstrate the presence of volcanic formations and mineral waters.—A short Essay on Sellers Waters. INGENIOUS TOBACCO SMUGGLING.—Monday a seizure of casks, which contained 2001bs. of cigars and cheroots, was made on board a vessel at Brewer's Quay, Lower Thames- street, London, by an officer named Kirgeman. The ves- sel had just arrived from Holland with a cargo of butter, cheese, and other goods, and seven beer casks, which were directed to Brewer's Wharf, to be left till called for, and were about to be landed as empty casks, in the usual manner, when the revenue officer, Kirgeman, took off the head of one of the casks, and it appeared at the hrst glance to be quite empty, but°na c|0^r inSpectio„ he found the barrel was lined with a tin case of the same shape as the barrel, and between that and the barrel itself the cigars and cheroots were concealed He then opened the other barrels, and found them lined with tin in the same manner, and a similar quantity of cigars and cheroots in each. He seized the casks and their contents, and rolled them to the Queen's warehouse at the same time giving information to the Board of Cus- toms, who ordered the vessel to be put under seizure also for the present. Each barrel contained about 301bs. of cigars and cheroots T:» are of the beit quality, and the duty upon them alone is JE90. Of course no person bag wmefwrwlt 9 own ft; casks w Mcwtegtf* THE DUKE OF "WELLINGTON U><N LULLING.—The Duke of WelIingtonh:is addressee ftp ttowing note to one of the lion, ^ecrttaries of the VsPSion for the Dis- couragement of During, i« re pi p e circular lately issued by the conllrlttee suggest!^ assure for deciding disputes on points Of lionotil- by I- to atbitration —London, June 211. 1" ield Mai|jaiJi)uke of Well- ington presents hisl:oml»h|,icntso Chin Hope.

MuuDBH.^vnurder, startling even for Ireland, was perpetrate^ pnjay week, in the county of Cavan. Mr. George ,n looth, of Urumcarbin, near Crossdoney, was shot de 0 fcis return from church at mid-day. He was drivitfrj| Kilmore church in a gig, with two young childrei^.jli a third, a boy of eleven years, rode behind 011 n When he arrived at -The Rooks,' the resihcDf the Sub-Sheriff, Mr. William Bell, he was ir yi man, who walked coolly and deliberately along t yj smoking a long pipe. The villain walked up toKJooli1) presenting a horse- pistol.

The murderer got clear q4NIr. Booth is said to have been a gentleman of ejingly mild and courteous manners, of great good.Je an,l benevolence, very popular in the neigliboti, highly esteemed of the gentry in his own rank, gloved in his family circle." The only motive that caityScri{jed for this foul crime is, that Mr. Booth had ofy some of the lawless people of Cavan by acts in his matrial capacity. He is also said to have been the lea.dilrangeman in that quarter. The murder was witnessed^any, and a lady called to the bystanders to stop the dercr; but, of course, he who shot a man In Irelauls in no danger from the people. A contemporary t'ksthat this national trait, the readiness to harbour.rdercrs, has existed ever since it was pointed out b^ncer in the time of Eliza- beth there is no proof thi did not exist long before —in the boasted days of lj Boroihme. How deeply _it is fixed in the Irish ellier, appears from the fact that the most humane ROtelligent natives, such as Mr. O'Connell or Mr. grtO'Brien, do not appear to see anything peculiar in the murder is deprecated but the harbouring of theassin, the act most signifi- cant of evil, is passed oveunimportant if not venial: and murders in England mentioned by way of set- off,-as if there were IlOtillctiou between individual crime, where the inurdtls obliged to skulk like a hunted beast, and the ursal misprision of murder. Some impute the propens0 the fact that the Irish are H cauiiot be tile 'fo' Scotland does as lnucll propottionv without being a starving nation. And evliere the Scotch are starving, they do not become a pILlion of accomplices in mur- der. Nor were the Iri>Wi,ys a starving race so that murder cannot be strictmputable to starvation. Are we then to dispair 0nendment ? By no means; although the remedy is so obvious as to be glibly re- commended in half a d' sentences. It is evident that mere material improvcts, either making big farms or feeding the people, ,,pt cure the homicidal epidemic. The Standard talks "terminating or disarming the people admitting th.tet-miiiatioi would not do, and force not at present.'oeiclon Bi"3 and arms Bills, indeed, do but ag^re l'le evi' at a" times.

Let some statesman try in good earnest how it wou° to use as the medium of appeal the greatest moral existing in Ireland, the priest- hood.—Spectator. THE REV. MR.ICELEY'S CASE.—On Monday Sir H. J. Fust deliverU('gment in this case, the question in which carne be the Arches Court by virtue of let- ters of request fri/he Lord Bishop of London, under the provisions of toliurcii Discipline Act. There had been no defence and the Court had to take upon itself the duty o'nsidering the cases without having heard arguments P*rt of the defendant. The Rev. Mr. Oakeley, in fhad admitted that some offence had been committed him against the canons and laws ecclesiastical of Church of Rngland. The learned judge then statJle articles exhibited as set forth. The principal cle, against Mr. Oakeley was his pub- lished letter, adsed to the Bishop of London. He admitted most of Nicies exhibited against him. lie admitted that ii"9 he subscribed the Thirty nine Articles, that hè's a member of the Church of Eiig- lan(I, an(1 licenser the Bishop of London. He admitted that he Was the hor of the letter complained of, and that he resiùed ;he diocese of London, consequently that he was wit the jurisdiction of the Court. The admissions of however, he must observe, were extremelyarded ill language; neither did he admit that he hafended against the law ecclesiastical; therefore it woiie necessary to inquire how that alle- gation had been ved. At first there was a doubt whe- ther the doctrintPeach«d by Mr. Oakeley were repug- nant to the doctp of the Church of England, and the Court would haieen hiippy to have heard the argu- ments of counstfoii tfait point, but Mr. Oakeley had not thought projto instruct counsel or take any steps for his defence Mr- JOakeley declared himself in favour of the (rLnes 'of the Roman Church. The learned Judge a read, the letter addressed by Mr. Oakeley to the 6ulk of London, and commented upon its contents as Mr. Oakeley admitted that he was account tat'the bishop for his conduct, and, therefore the (rt to decide whether that conduct was against the cipWe and doetrines,of the Church of England, and b*S^lhe ReV- gentleman under ecclesi- astical censure. Mr"I'keley contended that he had a right to maintaitif -he-Wased,the whole of the doctrines of the Romish CJrdMVith that the Court had nothing to do. What iihad o decide was, whether the rev. gentleman had 3ted 3titrary to the tenor and spirit of the Thirty-nine Arties, to which he had voluntarily subscribed, and t the nons of the Church of England. The Court then rad a' referred at some length to va- rious paragraphs in t pamphlet of Mr. Oakeley, and concluded by saingtt was not necessary to travel through each anicle the Church of England. Upon almost all the Church Rome dilfered from that Church and as Mr. Oakeley reed with the former, he could not agree with the er. The Court could not think that the words of thirticles admitted that Catholic or Roman meaning whictr. Oakeley contended for. No man could entertain doubt that Mr. Oakeley was a professed Roman Catle; and the Court being satisfied of this, it had no hetion in saying that the promoter of the suit had provedi case, and that Mr. Oakeley was Liable to ecclesiastic-lensure. -What should be the amount of that censuir punishment the Court had now to consider. Mr. Oaly had professed doctrines utterly inconsistent with alfJpposed to the doctrines of the Church of Englandnd he had given no explana- tion-he had olfered justification for such conduct. If, then, in any caseirely in this case, the court must Pronounce a severe tence in order to prevent other Persons from falling ) those errors into which, in the opinion of the court,r. Oakeley had fallen. The sen- tence of the court, tkfore) would be that the license of Mr. Oakeley asnster of St. Margaret's chapel be revoked that he be permitted to perform ministerial duties in that chapeb in any other church or chapel within the diocese of,ntion, or within the province of Canterbury, until hllQuld declare his willingness to renounce, and shoulinQtjnce, his present heresies and errors. This sentenq to be published in St. Margaret's chapel on Sunday t, the 6th of July, and Mr, Oakeley must of cae be condemned in the costs of thwt frocçedwf8.
