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.

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

MURDER IN FERMANAGH
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
