We are rejoiced to
learn that there was no foundation for the paragraph in the last number
of the Packet copied from the Northern
Whig announcing the death of the boy Booth, whose arm was broken
by a fall from the gig on the day his father was murdered at
Crossdoney. Our contemporary will rejoice with us at learning that the
poor child is in a fair way of recovery.—Evening Packet.
AWFUL VISITATION—DESTRUCTIVE FLOODS.
One of the most dreadful and extensive calamities with which it has pleased Providence to inflict any portion of this county for many years, occurred to the tract of country lying between Broadfoard and Glenomera, a distance of nearly five miles, on Friday last. The morning was particularly calm and serene, but about two o’clock rain fell with such violence, and came in such impetuous torrents from the mountain tops, as completely to inundate the lower parts of the country. Such was the awful violence of the deluge (it could be called by no other name), that it swept before it three bridges, two of whose names we could for the present only learn, viz. :--Kilbawn and Ballymacdonnell. Flocks, herds, houses, and tillage, including immense quantities of wheat and potatoes, were alike victims to its ungovernable fury. It swept by the old chapel of Kilbawn, and laid part of it prostrate. Amid the general ruin we have yet heard of the loss of only one life, that of Mary Kineen, a girl about fourteen years of age whose body, all bruised and disfigured, with every limb broken, was found at a distance of about half a mile from the place where her residence stood but a few hours previously. An inquest was held on her remains by Jas. Martin, Esq., coroner, and a verdict returned according to the circumstances. Over seven hundred acres of meadowing have been completely ruined, the mountainous waters leaving mud scattered upon it so as to render it perfectly useless for the present season. Of the amount of the damage sustained it would be difficult for the present to form even a conjecture ; but we fear that years must elapse before the inhabitants of the neighbourhood can recover from the effects of this awful calamity.--We have heard of similar devastations in some of the adjoining parishes, but nothing so authentic as to warrant a public notice.—Clare Journal.
TESTIMONIAL TO THE REV.
A. WILSON, OF DUNGANNON.—The members of the Juvenile Prayer
Society, assembling in the Second Presbyterian Church here, have
presented to the Rev. Andrew Wilson, a handsome copy of “ Hill’s
System of Divinity,” in 2 vols. ; “ Paxton’s Scripture Illustrations,”
4 vols. ; “ Hetherington’s History of the Church of Scotland,” in all
comprising nine volumes—as a token of the esteem which they entertain
for him, and as a memorial of the gratitude which they feel for his
unceasing attention to their best interests, both as a minister of the
Gospel, and as a superintendent of their praying association. A
suitable address was delivered upon the occasion by one of the members,
to which Mr. Wilson replied in a very affectionate manner.— Banner of Ulster.

ARMAGH MILITARY BARRACKS.—It
is reported to be the intention of Government to expend £4000 in
improving the Barracks of this city so as to afford accommodation for a
depot.—We have not heard the statement from any authentic quarter ; but
we hope if such a determination has not been come to by government, it
soon may. The Barracks at present are about as miserable as could
be found in the kingdom, and not such as a city like Armagh should

MANUFACTURES IN THE NORTH-WEST.—The Derry Journal states that 280 looms are at constant work upon Doctor Rogan’s estate at Castlefin, 90 are employed on the property of Sir R. Ferguson at Castlederg, and several at Ramelton under Mr. Brigham. The Messrs. Wilson, and Samuel Kerr, of Raphoe, are prosecuting the same business in that town; and in this city, so many as 250 weavers and 500 shirtmakers, are employed by Messrs. Wm. Scott & Co., upon commission, from English and Scotch houses. These are sure indications of the increasing prosperity of this district.—Sentinel.
===================OUTRAGES IN LIMERICK.
The Limerick Chronicle of yesterday contains a number of Whiteboy outrages.
On Sunday night the residence of Joseph L. Gubbins, Esq., of Ballincloo, was surrounded by a strong armed party, who fired shots through the hall door and demolished the windows, after which they posted a Rock notice in front of the house, and another at the lodge gate, ordering Mr. Gubbins, if he preferred his life to his land, to act accordingly, or vengeance would be inflicted at their next visit.
On the same night, a party of sixteen men attacked Bushy Park retreat, the residence of Dr. John Peppard, broke the door and windows, and searched the house for fire-arms, carrying off two guns and a blunderbuss, and assaulting his father. They then fired shots outside the house, and marched in the direction of Ballynacourty, where they paraded in a large field belonging to Thomas E. Davenport, Esq., the captain of the gang putting his men through the “manual,” and drilling them with as little concern as if it was a police review. One poor woman went out to look at the exhibition, but the moment “the boys” observed her one of the fired ; happily the shot did not take effect.
The same gang afterwards searched the houses of several farmers along the Askeaton river, and carried away several stand [sic] of arms. The barony of Kenry the Limerick Chronicle states to be in a most disturbed state.
On Monday last Frederick Bevan, Esq., of Camas, received a Rock notice from a “Tipperary Observer,” by the Bruff post-office, warning him not to disturb any of the tenants, and denouncing this gentleman as “d---d Orange New-light dog!”
We understand that
Mr. Kirk, Secretary to the Vintners Society of Belfast, has received a
letter from Mr. Goulburn, Chancellor of the Exchequer, to the effect,
that it is his intention to introduce a bill into parliament to remedy
the complaints of the vintners of Ireland, as far as circumstances will
admit with respect to the trade.
===================LURGAN SESSIONS, JULY 1.

James Milligan, same ; imprisonment four months.

Patrick Cullen—same; fined 10s. ; and
John Mulholland—same; imprisonment for one day.
James Galwey—stealing a wooden box, containing several articles of wearing apparel, the property of Thomas Palmer; three months at hard labour.
SERIOUS PARTY RIOT.—Tuesday last, being the fair day of Ballintra, and it being a holiday, a vast crowd of persons attended ; towards evening two persons fell out about some trifle, which was the signal for a general party row, and accordingly upwards of one hundred of the Protestant party, and a similar number of the Roman Catholic party rushed to the help of their respective champions. Fortunately, the police were on the spot and with much difficulty kept the different parties from getting in contact with each other, otherwise many lives, to all appearance, would have been sacrificed. Too much praise cannot be given to Captain Hayden, Head Constable Macartney, and the men under their command, for their cool but determined conduct. Some persons received severe blows, but no lives have been lost.—Ballyshannon Herald.

There was a meeting of the Commissioners of this borough yesterday in the market-house, William Paton, Esq., Chairman. The other Commissioners present were, William Rogers, George Barnes, Robert Barnes, James Stanley, Thomas M’Cann, and James Bennet, jun., Esqrs.
The accounts for the past month having been presented and passed, and the usual routine business gone through, the Commissioners adjourned.
ELECTION OF NEW COMMISSIONERS.
A subsequent meeting was held in the same place, at the hour of one o’clock, for the purpose of electing new Commissioners to serve for the three years ensuing.
Mr. PATON having read the notice calling the meeting, said he was ready to hear any person who had a candidate to propose ; whereupon
It was proposed by Mr. G. BARNES, and seconded by Mr. T. M’CANN, that the following be the Commissioners :--William M’Williams, Thomas Dobbin, Thos. K. Evans, H. Treanor, James Bennett, jun., Geo. Barnes, George Armstrong, John M’Parland, James Close, James Stanley, Henry Savage, Philip Keenan, Wm. Rogers, Thomas Kidd, George Scott, Robert Barnes, Francis M’Kee, Lee M’Kinstry, T.

Mr. THOMAS MACARTAN then introduced his list to the meeting, which was seconded. After reading some introductory observations, he nominated as persons duly qualified :--T. K.

A good deal of desultory conversation followed, when Mr. PATON said, there being on the lists more than 21 candidates, the parties should either elect the 21 first appearing in the Clerk’s book, or demand a poll.
The latter course having been adopted, the meeting was adjourned till ten o’clock next morning, when the polling commences.
