An occurrence, unfortunately too frequent in this country, took place on the night of the 16th inst.  DAVID WARRELL, whose father has a respectable shop in Convoy, and SAMUEL WILSON, farmer, of Bonnygee, left Convoy together ... the former, it is said, purposing to go part of the way home with the latter. On the way they both drank to intoxication, quarrelled, and in the quarrel, Wilson unfortunately lost his life. Warrell was sent to Lifford gaol; but, on Saturday, admitted to bail, the verdict of a Coroner’s Inquest being “justifiable homicide.”... We understand the parties were half brothers, and also connected by marriage.  “Oh! that man should put an enemy within his mouth, to steal away his brains!”

On the body being found an inquest was held by MR. TROTTER, coroner, and a verdict to the above effect returned.
