The coffin was decorated with an orange sash, and the members wore white scarfs.
On Friday last, in Enniskillen, Mr. George Faulkner, boot and shoe maker, aged 73 years. He was an old inhabitant, and much respected by all who knew him.
MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT AND DEATH.—On Friday night a man named M’WARWICK, who resided at Oona Bridge, between Armagh and Dungannon, was on his way home from Blackwatertown, with a load of timber, when by some mismanagement the cart upset, and falling upon him killed him on the spot.
ANOTHER ACCIDENT.—On Saturday, as two men, named CALVERT and BROWN, were proceeding up the river Bann in a boat, the former was capsized into the water, where he remained for a few minutes, when a man named MACKLIN came to his relief. Surgeon M’LOUGHLEN was in immediate attendance, and by his judicious treatment the poor fellow was completely revived.
FEARFUL ACCIDENT.—On Wednesday last, 3d instant, a poor young woman named MARY M’KEE, about 27 years of age, whilst attending the rollers of a flax mill, the property of Mr. HYDE, of Ballyfuddery, near Portadown, had the misfortune to be dragged in, by which the right hand and arm were dreadfully mangled, the arm being actually torn off about midway between the elbow and hand. She was brought in this sad state to the County Infirmary, where the arm was amputated about a hand’s breadth below the elbow, by Dr. COLVAN. She bore the painful operation with great fortitude, and is now, we are happy to say, as well as could be expected. She thinks it was a sudden change in the steam power, from slow to quick, and for which she was not prepared, that caused the mischance.
A PROLIFIC SOW.—On Monday morning a sow, the property of a man named William Magurichan, who resides in Belfast, brought forth no fewer than twenty-two young pigs. Magurichan has had this animal for eleven months only, and during that period she littered three times, bringing forth, in all, forty-nine young ones!

4th September, 1845.
===================TO BE SOLD,
These Premises are in the most perfect order, and comprise a most commodious Dwelling-house, Tan-yard, complete in every respect, with extensive offices, and an excellent Garden ; and from their immediate proximity to the intended termini of the Belfast, Coleraine, and Omagh Railways, they afford a most excellent opportunity for opening an Hotel, or any other business.
For further particulars apply to JOHN STANLEY, jun., Esq., Solicitor, Armagh.
| FRUIT.—Yesterday there was left at
our office a branch about six inches long, with a cluster of fourteen
apples. It was taken from a tree in a garden belonging to Mr. JAMES
BLEVINS of Kearney Hill, and we believe had originally eighteen apples
growing on it.
BENEVOLENCE OF WILLIAM BLACKER, ESQ., ARMAGH.—This worthy gentleman has kindly handed Dr. LESLIE £10, for the purpose of affording relief to those distressed families, afflicted with fever, who may come under his notice in the Armagh Dispensary district. Such acts of benevolence are very commendable, and worthy of being followed by all who can in any degree contribute to the relief of the suffering poor.
LISNASKEA UNION.—On Saturday last, Mr. JAMES ARMSTRONG contracted to supply potatoes, 3 per st., and meal, 11s. 6d. per cwt. Mr. Schoales, of Derryheely, supplies sweet-milk at 5d. per gal., and butter milk at 2d. per gal. Mr. John Smith got all the miscellaneous supplies.—Fermanagh Reporter.
MOY FAIR, SEPT. 5th.—Notwithstanding the advanced state of the harvest this fair was numerously attended. The supply of horses, as usual, large, and of more than average quality, though many were of the inferior description usually bred in the north of Ireland. Prices well supported. Cattle, numerous and in good demand. There was but a small supply of pigs, which went off readily at an improved value. Sheep and lambs were in moderate quantity, and the demand fully good. Flesh meats, generally of inferior quality, sell high in this market in consequence of insufficient competition, and the number of military stationed in Charlemont.
The party who paraded through this city on the night of the 31st ult., again assembled on Sunday night last for the same purpose. They had not marched very long when their peregrinations were put to a stop by T. DOBBIN, Esq., J.P., and Rev. Mr. O’BRIEN, P.P., who promptly dispersed them. We think it our duty to state that it has been asserted that the procession was in consequence of a wager taken on by a blind man, a pensioner, to lead them through all the principal streets in the city. We cannot say whether this be the case or not ; it is very questionable, and we think such processions on Sabbath evenings should cease.
WAYLAYING AND ASSAULT.—On Monday evening, Ist inst., a young man named Samuel MORROW, a butcher, residing in this city, was returning from Monaghan fair, and when a short distance from that town, was attacked and brutally handled by three ruffians, who had been in ambush. The heartless fellows watched their opportunity so well that they did not attempt to injure MORROW until a butcher, who was in his company, had gone back to town for sheep he had left there. He was scarce out of sight when they jumped over the ditch at the road-side, and after asking their victim “Could he shoot low,” and not getting any reply, they fell upon him and beat him so dreadfully that it was necessary to have him brought back to Monaghan that his wounds might be dressed. None of the party has yet been discovered. MORROW is a Protestant, and one of those sworn against as being in the late riots in Armagh.
HAVING returned from the MANUFACTURING DISTRICTS of ENGLAND and SCOTLAND, beg to lay before their Friends and the Public their STOCK of GOODS, which will be open for inspection
On FRIDAY, the 5th day of SEPTEMBER ;
and, for Assortment, Design, Quality, and Value, will be found neither inferior nor second to any in the Province.
As it is not the wish of the Firm to follow the modern system of advertising weekly or daily, and holding out greater inducements to purchasers than what are really fulfilled, they trust that a discerning community will give a trial to their Concern ; and, if disappointed in their expectations, either in value, style, or quality, it will not be expected that a second visit will be paid to their Establishment.
The principle on which they intend conducting their business will be, to purchase their Goods from the best, and most eminent Manufacturers, on the only and best terms they could successfully compete with their opponents in the trade, viz.—for Cash only ; to attend the markets quarterly, and introduce whatever is most unique in design, and substantial in quality ; to mark the lowest price in plain figures, on every article, from which no reduction will be made, as the Proprietors are convinced that it is the surest and most advantageous terms persons, not being acquainted with the quality of the Goods, can purchase, as they are thus placed on the same footing with the best judges ; and if better value can be obtained elsewhere, purchasers have an unquestionable right to do the best they can.
The following is a list of their Stock:
Proof-dyed West of England Cloths, in Black, Blue, Invisibles, Browns, Olives, & all Medley Colours ; Some Qualities in Black, Steel, and Mixed Cassimeres and Doeskins, Fancy Doeskins, and in Checks, Ribs, Stripes, &c. ; YORKSHIRE CLOTHS, CASSIMERES AND TWEEDS, IN GREAT VARIETY; PILOT CLOTHS AND BEAVERS ; BLANKETS AND FLANNELS ; CORDS, MOLESKINS, CALICOES, ETC. ; Silk and Gingham Umbrellas ; Stocks, Scarfs, and Opera Ties ; Silk Neck, and Pocket Handkerchiefs ; AND A VARIETY OF OTHER ARTICLES, TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION.
For Sale, By Private Contract,
5A. 3R. 31P. for One Young Life, or 21 Years, at the Yearly Rent of £10, 10s. 3d. The remaining 4 Acres are at Will.
These Premises are held under the Earl of CHARLEMONT--one of the best and most encouraging Landlords—and are well adapted for the reception of a respectable Family.
For further particulars, apply to C. C. DAVIDSON, Solicitor ; or to JOHN WILFORD, MOY, either of whom will treat with a Purchaser
