j LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ELIZA BENWKIX.-Tlic warrant for tlic execu- tion of this woman was rend to lier on Friday night, nnd her sentence will bc carried into effect ou Tuesday next. j THE" LAUNCESTON EXAMIN r.a."-Our contem- porary has bren misled by the paragraph in the Oltxrrcrr, in which thc result of Eliza lîenwell's trial wns summarily stated. Thc jury, when nbout to pronounce a verdict of not guilty, ex- plained that they meant of " premeditated" (a woril omitted by our reporter in the paragraph in question) murder.

There's no having a word with you in the day time-but here you cannot leave me. Now don't say you wish you could.

THE REPEAL ASSOCIATION. A SCENE BETWEEN 11 OLD IRELAND" AND '* YOUNG IRELAND." J Mr. O'Connell hastened to avail himself of the first opportunity of delivering his opinions. He came lhere tn denounce the Government plan of education-todenounco it from one end to the other, and to de- nounce the system it was founded on. If he were silent on this topic before, or spoke in measured accents, he now, as a Catholic, authoritatively condemned that inexecrable bill. He had had some sail forebodings ; he bad apprehended that divisions might arise among them, and that the cause of Ireland misfit be weakened, as it had often been lost before, by domestic dissension ¡ but he was proud to say that he was mistaken, and tn announce that dissension was impossible. Why did he say it was impossible? Because he came there to work out the great Chris- tian principle of doing by others os bc would be done by-the principle which would turn this world into a region of charity, and create peace and good w...

These two sections constitute a mere minority of thc Synod. Thc majority endeavoured to adopt a mid- dle course and take an intermediate position ; und accordingly they passed a series of resolutions, resolving to continue in communion with both thc Established and thc Free Church of Scotland. (Laughter.) The two sections that constituted th...
