Armagh Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

22 April, 1845  


On Monday, the 14th inst., Mr. HENRY, of Tassagh, one of the coroners for this county, was through some inadvertance caught by the hand in his own mill, and but that he had the presence of mind to extricate it in- stantly, the consequences would have been serious. Dr. COLVAN of Armagh, and Surgeon LEEPER of Keady, were immediately called in, and after consultation decided on amputating three of the fingers. Mr. HENRY's case was not without danger, but we are happy to learn he is now doing well.



STATE OF ARMAGH WORK-HOUSE FOR THE WEEK ENDING APRIL 19TH.--Admitted 24; remaining last week, 457; discharged and died 25. Total 456.



The Lord Chancellor has been pleased to appoint the follow- ing gentlemen magistrates upon the recommendations of the lieutenants of the respective counties named :--Charles Boyle, Esq., for the county of Monaghan ; Thomas Carty, Esq., for the county of Louth ; Alexander Creichton, Esq., for the county of Sligo ; Joseph Holmes, Esq., for the King's County ; Edward Anderson, Esq., for the county of Down; P. W. Filgate, Esq., for the county of Louth ; Thomas C. Fitzgerald, Esq., for the county Louth ; Robert Calwell, Esq., for the county of Down ; Henry D'Arcy, Esq., for the county of Tyrone.

His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant has promoted LOUIS ANDERSON, Esq., of this county, to the rank and pay of Second County Inspector, from the 12th Inst.



On Friday last between the hours of three and four o'clock in the day, a fire broke out in the flax mill which is partly worked by steam, belonging to Mr. John Hutcheson, of Killycairn, near Markethill; and notwithstanding every exer- tion the premises were burned to the ground. The damage done by the accident is estimated at about £600. We have not heard whether the property was insured or not.

In this city, on Tuesday last a fire was discovered in a house in Irish-street, which owing to its contiguity to flax stores, would have been very serious, but for the timely aid of Head Constable Lodge and his party who were promptly in attendance, and who with the water-engine succeeded in ex- tinguishing this flame.



At a meeting of the Commissioners of this city last week, Wm. Paton, Esq., suggested that the several Insurance Com- panies who had offices in Armagh, would contribute to keeping the water-engine in repair, or to the purchase of another, or an additional hose. It would be very desirable that Mr. Paton's suggestion be carried into effect immediately, and we think each office should contribute in proportion to the business done in the city.



A petition in favour of this line, lies for signature at Mr. M'Water's, English-street. A good number have already affixed their names, and we are sure when our friends reflect upon the importance of the project to the city and country generally, that they will embrace the opportunity.

Upon the night of Sunday the 13th inst., WM. CRAIG, the only son of a respectable farmer, was shot dead through his sleeping-room window, in the townland of Killyfort, about the hour of nine o'clock, whilst in the act of undressing for bed. The ball entered under the left arm and passed through his body. The only reason that can be assigned was, that Mr. CRAIG was about to occupy the land himself, and had some of his house- hold furniture brought there the day before the murder. Two men named LEONARD were seen loitering about the place, and one of them having a gun, he was repeatedly heard to say he would deal with any person who would attempt to interfere with the holding. At an early hour the following morning Constable GIBSON, of Blacklion station, and his party, together with A. C. KERR, of Holywell, proceeded to the scene of outrage and had HUGH LEONARD arrested on suspicion, whom they immediately brought to Holywell barracks, leaving him in charge of Sub-Constable MALCOLM, waiting the result of the coroner's inquest. Next morning he escaped from the barracks after knocking Sub-Constable MALCOLM down. After a close pursuit of half a mile he was retaken. LEONARD was then com- mited to gaol for the homicide, and also for the assault on Sub-Constable MALCOLM.
