===================CONSISTORIAL COURT OF ARMAGH.
Heath v. Heath.
BEFORE DR. MILLAR, VICAR-GENERAL.
On Tuesday, (as we stated in our last,) Dr. Gayer resumed his arguments for the Impugnant, dwelling at great length on the causes that induced Mrs. Heath to separate from her husband, citing several high authorities, human and divine, on the nature of the matrimonial contract as well as the judgments of ecclesiastical courts. When Dr. Gayer had concluded, the usual papers were put in, and the celebration of the marriage having been admitted, the depositions of Frederick Rogers and James Johnston were given as to the separation, when Mr. Stanley, proctor for the Impugnant, read the evidence of the witnesses examined as the cause of Impugnant’s separation. Among those were the depositions of Mr. and Mrs. Cope and several others. To annul the testimony of Boyle and Best, the depositions of a number of persons were read.
The whole of the evidence was then re-read by Mr. Barrett, proctor for Promovent.
Ross S. Moore, Esq., one of counsel for Impugnant, then addressed the court in a speech of considerable ability, observing on the cruelties alleged to have been practised by Promovent to Impugnant, and citing authority which went to prove that a separation between husband and wife, might, under certain circumstances, be voluntarily entered into.
The court was shortly after adjourned to Wednesday.
On Wednesday Sir Henry M????th, replied in a speech of nearly four hours, commenting on the nature of the evidence adduced. He concluded by leaving the case to the sound judgment of his Honor.
It was then announced that judgment would be delivered on Tuesday, the 12th of August, until which day the court was adjourned.

ARMAGH TOWN COMMISSIONERS.
The first meeting of our new commissioners was held yesterday in the Market house. On the motion of George Barnes, Esq., seconded by James Bennett, Esq., Thomas Dobbin, Esq., was elected chairman. Mr. Cochrane, was re-elected clerk, and Mr. Gardner appointed treasurer.
The commissioners resolved to meet again on yesterday fortnight to inquire into the conduct of the watchmen and the person who has the management of the pipe water, and to receive proposals for the watching, cleansing and lighting of the town.
COLLECTOR OF CESS.
On the motion of Mr. Thomas M’Cann, seconded by Mr. Curry, Mr. M’Mahon was re-appointed collector.
The Chairman said there were a number of public works in operation by the late Commissioners, he wished to know if they were determined to carry them on ?
The Clerk enumerated the works referred to, which were ordered to be proceeded with without delay.
VOTE OF THANKS TO THE LATE COMMISSIONERS.
Proposed by Counsellor Robinson, and seconded by Mr. Scott, and passed unanimously :
“That the thanks of this Board are justly due, and are here- by given to Mr. Wm. Paton, chairman, and the ohter members of the late Board of Commissioners, for the very efficient and satisfactory mode in which they discharged the duties of their respective offices.”
Mr. M’Cann wished to draw the attention of the Board to a matter of incalculable benefit to the city of Armagh. He referred to the subject of the Irish Colleges. He thought there ought to be a petition forwarded from the Board to get one of those Colleges erected in this city.
Counsellor Robinson said it would be of no use for them to do any thing on the subject as that was all settled already.
The Chairman, said he had had a conversation with the Rev. Dr. Crolly, and Mr. Paton on the subject that morning, and they were of opinion that if the influence of the Lord Primate, and their own as well as other influences of importance were to be exercised, something might yet be done to make Armagh the site for a new College.
Mr M’Cann said that the Rev. Dr. Crolly had spoken favorably of the bill to his congregation on the previous Sabbath, and he was certain, that an individual like Dr. Crolly, being the head of the Catholic Church in this kingdom, would do a great deal with the government.
It was finally agreed that a petition be forwarded to the government from the board, requesting of them that they should make Armagh the place for one of the provincial Colleges.
A number of bills were then passed, and the Board adjourned to that day fortnight.
On Thursday last the commissioners of this town met in the Court-house, to elect a chairman for the ensuing year.
On the motion of DAVID BARRY, Esq., seconded by the Rev. JOHN LEECH, GALBRAITH JOHNSTON, Esq., was re-elected chairman, after which JAMES SLOAN, Esq., moved, and the Rev.
