On Tuesday night last an attempt was made to murder Mr. Jackson, the steward of J. Holmes, Esq., of Clogher,
in the county of Roscommon. He was fired at as he was returning home. Several slugs entered his body, and he
continues in a precarious state. The sufferer did not see the assassin, nor has he any idea who he may be,
not having had any serious dispute with any person in the locality.

Edward Lane and Gordon Hires, the chief and second mates of the American ship Anna who are charged with
the murder of several seamen on the high seas, were again remanded by the Southampton magistrates on Tuesday.
The remand was granted on the application of the American Consul, who has not yet been able to procure the proper requisition to enable him to send the prisoners home for trial.
