Further mail news has been received in Dublin concerning the condition of Irish emigrants in the Argentine Republic. Mr Patrick Cole, of Buenos Ayres, writes : " It was truly a sad, pitiable sight to see Irish mothers, with, in some cases, their dying babea in their arms, stretched on the ground outside the hotel where they had passed the previous night without any covering, as they could not get to the luggage, and also to hear strong men, mid their tears, cursing the evil hour in which they broke up in many cases happy homes to come to what they were led to believe was an El Dorado." He says of emigrants generally some of them died of starvation in the lazar-houses of Rosario, which are little wooden huts that were thrown up for the victims of the last cholera epidemic, while in many cases mothers sold their clothing from their backs to procure food for their starving children. At the High Court of Justiciary, Dundee, W. H. Bury (29), described as a sawdust merchant, from London, was charged with the murder of Ellen Elliot or Bury, his wife, The parties went to Dundee last month, and the woman's body was discovered packed in a box, horribly mutilated. On being arrested, Bury told the police that on waking one morning hs found his wife had hanged herself, and that he in a moment of frenzy stabbed her and packed her body in the box, intending to remove it. Witnesses stated that Bury was married twelve months ago, and that he and his wife led a wretched life. He is alleged to have obtained a legacy of L3OO and squandered it in drink. He induced his wife, by pretending he had got remunerative employment, to go from London to Dundee. She went very reluctantly and againßt the wishes of her friends. PUBLIC NOTICES. G. M. WILKIE. M.
