=========================

The stormy and unsettled weather of the past year has had the effect of bringing very forcibly before the public of the United Kingdom the great usefulness of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. During the twelve months just ended the services of the lifeboat have been instrumental in saving more than one thousand lives. This is surely a splendid record. The boats were called out 335 times, and, in addition to the large number of persons rescued, a very great amount of valuable property has been saved. During the period indicated the Institution granted rewards for the saving of 220 lives by means of shore and fishing boats, and these added to 834, the number rescued by the boats owned by the Institution, bring the total of persons saved to 1,054. An Institution doing such noble work as this deserves no half-hearted support. Its usefulness will be still further increased when electric communication with lighthouses and the shore is established, as we trust it soon will be. This will no doubt mean increased demand on the resources of the Institution. The public support, however, has been vary generous in the past, and we need hardly fear that the operations of this Society will be hampered in the future.

=========================

MR. H. O. ARNOLD FORSTER, M.P.

We are pleased to learn that neither Mr. Arnold-Forster nor his cousin, Mr. Arnold, is the worse for the accident which happened to them while skating at Virginia Water on Tuesday last. Although Mr. Arnold-Forster, who fell into the water in attempting to rescue his cousin, was got out almost immediately, it was quite a quarter of an hour before Mr. Arnold was brought out, and during that time Mr. Arnold-Forster remained directing the operations in his wet and freezing clothes. Had it not been for Mr. Arnold-Forster's prompt action in offering a reward, and fastening the boy Jeffery a with a rope before he ventured into the water, Mr. Arnold's life would certainly have been lost, as he was quite exhausted.

=========================

DEATH IN THE ROYAL HOSPITAL. -- Yesterday William Nester, sixteen years of age, died in the Royal Hospital from the effects of cuts on the head, said to have been inflicted with a bottle. The deceased was an apprentice vintner, residing at 50, Mill Street, and was admitted to the Royal Hospital on the 24th December last. An inquest will probably be held to-day.

=========================

THE FOOT-AND-MOUTH DISEASE. -- Yesterday morning the Portal Inspector of Belfast received a telegram from the Chief Secretary's Office, Dublin, to the effect that a fresh out-break of foot-and-mouth disease had occurred in Great Britain, and that the importation of cattle and sheep into Ireland would be cancelled from yesterday. An intimation to this effect was conveyed last evening to the various cross-Channel offices.

THE RIVAL NATIONALISTS.

HOUSES WRECKED AT KILRUSH.

KILRUSH, MONDAY.

On Sunday night a disturbance took place in this town, between eleven p.m. and three a.m. Several houses were attacked and windows smashed. The premises occupied by the Working Men's Club were wrecked, and the Temperance Hall shared the same fate. The residences of Messrs. Lynch and Doohen, Town Commissioners, and others who hold Anti-Parnellite principles, shared in the attack. It would seem that by way of retaliation this led to the breaking of windows in the houses of three Parnellites in Moore Street The police made several arrests to-day, and much excitement prevailed in the town.

=========================

REDUCTION OF RENT ON MR. CHAINE'S ESTATE, BALLYTWEEDY. -- On Tuesday, the 27th ult, the tenantry on this estate as usual went to pay the year's rent due at November, when, unsolicited, the agent (Mr. Thos. P. M'Dowell) informed them that he was happy to communicate to those assembled that Mr. Chaine, having considered the adverse circumstances which human have to meet this season, had desired him to state that he would allow 15 per cent. on all rents due, and, in addition, an extension of time where the tenant was unable to pay at present. Many complimentary expressions were indulged in regarding Mr. Chaine and his late lamented father.

=========================

THE ATLANTIC LINER UMBRIA.

[SPECIAL TELEGRAM.]

QUEENSTOWN, MONDAY.

The Canard steamer Gallia, from New York, arrived here to-day. Captain Ferguson was asked by Press representatives whether it was true, as reported by passengers of the Umbria, that he refused to stand by that vessel on the 26th ultimo, when disabled in the Atlantic with her main shaft broken. Captain Ferguson said, in reply, "I have no statement to make, and consequently refuse to be interviewed." The passengers who landed here from the Gallia made different statements as to the reason why the Gallia did not offer assistance to the Umbria. Some of them state that the signal exhibited by that vessel did not request assistance, and that, as the weather was quite favourable and the engineers were engaged repairing the shaft, Captain Ferguson came to the conclusion that it would be mere waste of time to stand by the disabled steamer, more especially as he had aboard a large number of passengers, upwards of one thousand bags of mails, and a very valuable general cargo. Other passengers, state that the Gallia was asked to stand by for twenty-four hours until the shaft was repaired, but Captain Ferguson did not think it necessary.

=========================

THE AUGHNACLOY MURDER

DERRY, MONDAY.

No reply has yet been received to the memorials forwarded to the Lord Lieutenant praying for a commutation of the death sentence on James Boyle, the Aughnacloy murderer, and failing a favourable reply the execution will take place on Friday morning in Londonderry Gaol. The scaffold has arrived from Mountjoy Prison, and it is stated that Scott, who hanged the Sligo murderer, will be the executioner. Boyle, who is quite a young man, has within the last two days realised his awful position. He is frequently attended by the Roman Catholic chaplain. The execution will be carried out under the superintendence of Mr. Rogers, under sheriff for County Tyrone.

=========================

THE TRAGEDY NEAR STRONE.

STRONE, MONDAY.

THE man Maitland, who was so terribly injured at Dunselma, near Strone, by John M'Leish on Saturday afternoon, is still alive, but the medical authorities pronounce his case as hopeless. Sheriff Shairp and Mr. M'Lullich, prosecutor fiscal for the county, journeyed from Inverary to Strone on Sunday afternoon and took the dying man's depositions. Cameron is progressing favourably, and, although a man of over 70 years of age, he seems to have stood the attack remarkably well. There are nine large cuts on his head, and had he not been able to shield himself in the brushwood during M'Leish's savage attack on him he would certainly have been beaten to death. M'Leish, who seems to have been seised with a sudden impulse to take Maitland's life, is now very quiet, there being no signs of the outrageous manner which characterised, his conduct oo Saturday afternoon. When taken into custody he asked to be allowed to leave, as his sister "would be wearying for him." The scene of the tragedy projects an awful spectacle, great pools of blood lying in several places.

=========================

OUTRAGE BY MOONLIGHTERS

TULLA, MONDAY.

A MAN, disguised and carrying a revolver, entered on Saturday night Grove Villa, near Tulla, the residence of the Misses Burke-Browne, daughters of a deceased magistrate. He found the ladies in the kitchen, and asked whether their old manservant, named Butles, was within. Receiving a negative reply, he fired four shots about the room and left; but returning, he aimed a shot at Miss Celia Browne, though without doing her any injury. He then decamped with some comrades, who awaited him outside. No arrests have been made.

=========================

BELFAST POLICE COURTS -- YESTERDAY.

CUSTODY COURT.

[Before Messrs. F. J. MacCARTHY, R.M. ARTHUR HAMILL, JOHN BURKE, and W. H. CAMPBELL.]

ALLEGED SERIOUS WIFE ASSSAULT. -- John Keenan was charged by Countable Dickson with having nvaulted his wife in Norton Street on Saturday night. Mr. Spiller prosecuted. The constable stated that about eleven o'clock on Saturday night he was on duty in Croroac Street. In consequence of a complaint he went to 58, Norton Street. On entering the house he heard sounds upstairs as of some person being beaten, and, proceeding up and opening the door of the room from which the sounds came, he found the wife of the prisoner lying perfectly nude on the floor. He was standing above her, holding her by the left arm with his left hand; in his right he held the leather strap produced, and was in the act of striking. The woman was evidently in a very much exhausted state. Her mouth was bleeding, and two of her upper teeth were out which she said she lost that night. On her left forearm there was a wound, her face was swollen, and there were marks about the body which seemed to have been produced by a strap. She charged her husband with having assaulted her -- "killed her" were the words she used. When witness placed him under arrest he said he had only been chastising his wife with that strap, and that she had been drinking his money. At the Police Office, addressing his wife, he added, "Jane, you have charged me with this; it will be a long roast for you." She replied, "Oh, John, you have killed me." Witness then had her conveyed to the Royal Hospital. Mr. Spiller -- Was he under the influence of drink? Witness -- He was sober, but she was in such an exhausted state I could not say whether she was sober or not. The hospital doctor, however, afterwards informed me she was not drunk at the time of admission. Denis Smith, Eliza Court, stated on Saturday night he was in a house just opposite to that of the prisoner's, and while there heard the woman calling "Murder!" She continued calling for about a quarter of an hour. Witness and a companion named Crawford ran across the street into the prisoner's house and upstairs. Opening the door of a room from which they heard noises, they saw the woman sitting there naked, and the prisoner hitting her with the belt across the back. Crawford got a hold of the prisoner, and to prevent a further row witness got between them and separated them. Crawford then ran downstairs, witness following. The prisoner made to kick at his wife, but witness could not say whether he succeeded in kicking her or not. Mr. Spiller then applied for a remand, as the woman was yet unable appear. The MAGISTRATES granted a remand for a period within eight days.

LARCENY CHARGES. -- Ellen Chapman, or Doherty, was charged with having stolen a watch, the property of Walter Jonce [sic], on Saturday night. Mr. Lewis prosecuted. Jones stated he was going along Templemore Avenue, carrying a jug of beer, when the prisoner met him, and solicited assistance, and, after some parleying, he gave her a drink of the beer. She remarked it was a good drink, and they parted, but he had only proceeded a few yards when he observed his chain hanging down, and the watch gone. He ran after the prisoner, but she denied the larceny, and he handed her over to the police. Constable Madill said when the prisoner was searched in the Police Office the watch was not found. The MAGISTRATES discharged her without prejudice. -- A little fellow named Booth was accused of having stolen three pairs of boots, the property of David Cesar, within the past fortnight. Mr. Lewis prosecuted, and Mr. M'Erlean defended. The prisoner, it appeared, was a message boy in the employment of Cesar. His father appeared in court, and promised to send him to the country. The MAGISTRATES allowed the prisoner out on his father's bail under the First Offenders Act. -- Bella Holly was charged with having stolen 1 10s from a sailor named Fred. Eiffeltin on Saturday night. Mr. Wm. Harper defended. It appeared the sailor gave her into custody, but in the Police Office, on being searched, no money was found. The prosecutor did not appear, and the prisoner was accordingly discharged. -- Mary Parks, a domestic servant, was charged with the larceny of a quantity of clothing, the property of Mrs. Lizzie Walsh, her mistress. Constable Redmond gave evidence of the arrest, adding that the missing articles were all found in the prisoner's box. She was returned for trial to the Quarter Sessions.

SUMMONS COURT

[Before Messrs. JAMES JENKINS and THOMAS SHAW.]

ALLEDGED IlLL-TREATMENT OF CHILDREN -- Hugh M'Cluskey was charged at the instance of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children with having neglected his five children. Mr. Lewis prosecuted. Inspector John W. Taylor deposed he visited the residence of the defendant on the 8th ult. He saw the defendant's wife and his children -- Selina, aged 10 years; Georgina, aged 7; Ellen, aged 6; Agnes, aged 2; and George, aged 10 months. The little ones were very thinly clad; the kitchen was almost devoid of furniture; there was only a spark of fire in the grate; and the only food in the house was a crust of bread weighing about two ounces -- the wife stating they had no food until her husband came in. Witness examined the sleeping-room, and found it almost bare of furniture. There was a bedstead, with a very dirty mattress and rug, upon which, he was told, the husband and wife and one child slept; and in a corner were some rags, covered with an old coat, the sole sleeping accommodation for the other four children. From the room, and especially from the rags, a terrible stench proceeded. The defendant objected strongly to witness's interference with the children, who, he said, were as well kept as his means would permit. Witness again paid a visit to the house on the 10th, and again on the 21st. On the occasion of the last visit be found the family had been ejected for non-payment of rent. Their WORSHIPS adjourned the case for a fortnight, directing the inspector to supervise the conduct of the defendant towards his children in the meantime.
