EXTRAORDINARY ABDUCTION. -- A young lady, daughter of Capt. B----n, R.N. Chief Constable of Police, stationed in county Galway, has been on a visit at a friend's house in this county, where Mr. H---ll, a Tithe Commissioner, had also been staying. On Saturday night last, after the young lady had retired, it was announced to her that her presence was required by the lady of the house; upon which she left her room, and was proceeding down stairs, when the Tithe Commisioner seized her in his arms and put her outside the hall door, where two men with their faces blackened, forced her into a chaise. Information of the circumstance was given to Mr. Vokes, who despatched a mounted policeman towards Tipperary, that being the supposed route which the fugitives took; but no trace of them could be found, nor have they since been heard of. Limerick Chronicle.
BISHOP OF HEREFORD. -- The writer of the letter from Hereford, upon whose authority we announced the death of Dr. Grey, was led into a mistake by believing that the Hon. and Rev.
