MURDER IN TIPPERARY. A crime of a terrible nature has just been committed in the very centre of the town of Tipperary, and while the people thronging the streets were erjgaared in their ordinary daily business. A man named Dowdle, re- siding near the town, came to attend the funeral of a friend, and, as he was walking behind the hearse, in company with his wife, he was struck from behind three blows with a "loaded" blackthorn stick, ferruled with a long iron ring, and wedged also with iron. The man who struck these murderous blows cried out, I" Here's a three. year. o id! and then ran into a shop belonging to a relative. The l wife attempted to save the husband, and warded off one blow. The wounded man walked into a r eigh- j bouring house, and asked leave to sit down. He did not remain long, but went out to the yard, where he fell insensible, and died in a few hours. A neighbour of his own, William Condon, was arrested, and infor- mationd have been sworn before Mr. De Gernon, R.M., charging him with being the person who inflicted the injuries from which Dowdle lost bis life. The inquest upon the body of James Dowdle was commenced on Tuesday, but was adjourned for a fort- night. The wife of the deceased, who swore directly before the resident magistrate against William Con- don, was in a state which prevented her examination. She appeared most reluctant to give any evidence. Condon has not been fully committed, but remanded for further examination.
