The Freeman's Journal ccontains the following account of the funeral ceremonies observed at Genoa:--


The obsequies at Genoa, on the 19th instant, were attended by multitudes who seemed deeply affected. The governor, the clergy, the nobility, the foreign consuls, and other distinguished personages were present and The Rev. Dr. MILEY and the member for Dundalk were accommodated in a private tribune, specifically prepared for their reception. In the absence of his Eminence the Cardinal Archbishop, his vicar general, who is also a prelate, officiated. The requiem was strictly grand. Nothing could be more solemn or more characterized by that sublimity with which Catholicity alone knows how to invest her offices--whether we regard the throngs of every rank that surrounded the lofty bier, and filled all parts of the stately temple--the magnificence of the temple--itself one of the finest in these countries--the crowds of the clergy of every order who were marshalled according to their respective dignities in the choir, and around the altar, or the divine and imposing spectacle of four and twenty priests all lighting up the host of propitiation at the same moment, and while the "Requiem enternum dona et Dominae," "Eternal rest give to him O Lord, and upon him be they smile of light for ever," resounded not only throughout the gorgeous edifice, but through the sorrowing hearts of the admirers and friends, at the mighty dead--few spectacles more solemn, dignified, or imposing, were ever witnessed even in Italy.

EMIGRATION--From the port of Londonderry, from the 15th to the 28th of the present month, the passengers returned by the emigration agent amount to the large number of 1,812, and the entire who have left from the 1st till the present date exceed 3,200.

In the Kingscourt division a gross fraud has been attempted on the Committee. The relief cards have been forged to perfection. The Committee detected the fraud on finding too many on the tray at night.

The Rev. Michael BRADY, P.P., Upper Larah, thankfully acknowledges the receipt of £ 0 worth of Indian Mean and Rice, to be added to the relief fund of his parish..... Mrs. PRESTON thankfully acknowledges the receipt of half a ton of meal from the Central Relief Committee of the Society of Friends, Dublin...

KELLS RELIEF COMMITTEE--Upwards of 2,236 rations of good, substantial stirabout, biscuit, and meal, are being distributed daily at an average of 2d. each per day.


On the 2nd inst., at Lisnamandra, the lady of George L'ESTRANGE, Esq., of a daughter.


May 27th in Athboy Church, by the Rev. Henry HUGH, Rector of Munterconnaught, county Cavan, Ferdinand M'VEAGH, only son of Ferdinand Meath M'VEIGH, of Drewstown, County Meath, Esq., to Marie, only daughter of Thomas ROTHERAM, of Triermore, in same county, Esq.

The bride and groom were attended to the altar by a numerous circle of their mutual friends, who, cordially participated in their happiness. After the ceremony the bridal party returned to Friermore, where, after partaking of a splendid dejenner, the evening was concluded with a dance. Amongst the company were-- Mr. and Mrs. NANER, of Loughcrew, and Miss SMITH; Lady and Sir Montague CHAPMAN, and Miss FETHERSTONE; Mr. and Mrs. ROTHERAM, of Crossdrum, Miss PARKER and Miss Fanny BATTERSBY, Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Francis SADLIER and Mrs. James STONFORD, Mr. and Mrs. William CHAPMAN, Mr. and Mrs. and Miss HOPKINS, Mr. and Mrs. BOR, Mr. and Mrs. ROBERTS, Mr. GREENHILLS, &c., &c. The poor were not fogotten on this happy occasion, a substantial dinner being provided for them by Mr. ROTHERAM; and in the evening, exhilarated by hearty good cheer, they danced by the blaze of bonfires to the music of bagpipes and violin, and in many a hearty bumper pledged the health of the young couple and their families, who, during the whole of the late trying season were most active and unremitting in their exertions to employ and alleviate the miseries of the people in their neighbourhood.


At Navan, on the 21st ultimo, after an illness of ten days, Helen Frances, the beloved wife of Duncan ROBERTSON, Esq.

On the 1st of June in Belturbet, aged 44 years, Mr. James FINLAY, Agent to the Ulster Canal Company, of typhus fever, deeply and deservedly regretted. In the death of Mr. FINLAY, Belturbet has lost an honest, industrious Merchant; the poor, a zealous and uncompromising advocate; and society, an intelligent and warm-hearted citizen. He was foremost in effecting many local improvements, among which we may mention the establishment of the monthly fairs in that town.

The recollection of his many excellent qualities will remain engraven on the minds of all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance; and cut off as he has been in the prime of life, his sudden demise is a source of the greatest sorrow to his family and immediate friends.

On the 2nd instant, in Bailieborough, Mary, wife of Mr. Henry ADAMS, in the 48th year of her age, sincerely and deservedly regretted by an afflicted family and a numerous circle of friends and acquaintances, to whom she had endeared herself by her gentleness of manners, mildness of temper, and benevolence of heart. In the domestic circle, she was characterised by prudence, industry and intelligence; on her deathbed she rested for salvation on Christ, the rock of ages. Though dead, she lives in the hearts of the poor and all with whom she was intimately acquainted.

On the 26th ult., of typhus fever, caught in the discharge of his sacred duty, the Rev. George LEWIS, the zealous and faithful Curate of Clontbret, co Monaghan.

On the 22d ult., in Enniskillen, Doctor Hugh COLLLUM universally regretted. His remains were conveyed to Derryoland, the family burial place, on Monday, for interment; and the funeral was accompanied in regular procession, by the Town Commissioners, the Clergymen of each denomination, all the Doctors in town, the merchants, traders, &c., and a great number of the gentry and farmers of the county.

On the 30th of May in Armagh, of bronchitis and dysentery, Mr. Joseph SODEN, Editor of the "Armagh Sporting Chronicle", aged 49 years.

ENNISKILLEN--The skeleton of a female ws found in one of the back streets of this town on Tuesday last, by some labouring men, who were engaged in repairing the road. The skull was fractured in several places, and from all appearance it is quite evident that the unfortunate woman had been murdered, and the body secreted under the surface of the earth, at some remote period.--Erne Packet

Cavan, 10 June 1847


The Council of the Irish Confereation met on Monday, the 7th June, William SMITH O'BRIEN, Esq., M.P., in the chair.

The Chairman stated, that having heard that Mr. O'Connell's family were desirous that the members of the Irish Confedera- tion should not attend the funeral of Mr. O'Connell, he had thought it right to address the following to Mr. John O'Connell:--

"4 Westland-row, June 7, 1847

Mr. Dear O'Connell--As I should be very reluctant to take any part in reference to the funeral of your lamented father which may not be acceptable to this family, I shall feel obliged if you would let me know whether it is their wish that those who dissented from the policy adopted by the Repeal Association during the last twelve months, should attend the funeral.

I should not have deemed it necessary to trouble you with this inquiry, if I had not learned that it is the impression of some of my friends that Mr. O'Connell's family desire that none of those who are called "the Young Ireland Party," should be present on the occasion.--I emain, yours very faithfully,

"WIlliam S. O'BRIEN

"John O'Connell, Esq.
"As our Council meets to-day at three o'clock perhaps you will kindly forward an early reply."

He regretted to say that he had received the following reply from Mr. Maurice O'Connell:--

"Mr. Maurice O'Connell presents his compliments to Mr. Smith O'Brien, and begs to say that his brother Mr. John O'Connell, having submitted to him Mr. S. O'Brien's letter of this morning's date. it becomes his duty to reply to inform him, that all arrangements for the funeral having been entrusted to the Glasnevin Cemetery Committee, and the Rev. Dr. Miley, the family leaves it entirely in their hands."

Mr. O'Brien stated that he did not desire to suggest and course to the Council in connection with this correspondence, as he thought that each member of the Confederation ought to act upon the occasion in accordance to his own sense of propriety; but for his part he inferred from Mr. M. O'Connell's letter that it is the wish of the family that he should not attend the funeral.

After some further business the Council adjourned.

O'CONNELL'S FUNERAL--The Freeman of yesterday states that the transmit of O'Connell's remains to Dublin cannot possibly be effected before the middle of July.


At Oldcastle, on the 8th instant, the lady of Doctor RIDGEWAY, of a son. On the 5th instant, in Cavan, the lady of H. W. NEWELL, Esq., of a son.


June 5, in St. George's Church, Hanover-square, London, Gustavus Wm. LAMBERT, eldest son of Gustavus LAMBERT of Beaupac, co. Meath, Esq., to the Lady Frances, second daughter of the Marquis of Conyngham. The happy couple left for Denbeg, the seat of Wm. DENISON, Esq., to pass the honeymoon.


On Friday last, at his residence, Smithfield House, Nichloas PRICE, Esq., in the 97th year of his age. By the demise of Mr. PRICE a pension of £1,500 a year reverts to the country. He enjoyed this pension since the period of the Union, as com- pensation for the extinction of the office of Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod in the Irish House of Commons.

At Upper Mountpleasant Avenue, William ANDREWS, Esq., aged 77 years.

INCENDIARISM--On the night of the 3rd instant, an uninhabited house, the property of the Rev. Cornelius O'REILLY, P.P. of Ballintample, was set fire to by some person or persons unknown.

June 18 1847


Mr. John Robert GODLEY, of Leitrim, has addressed the electors of his native county, on the retirement of Colonel WHITE.

John DE BLAQUIRE, Esq., of Portloman, is also said to be a candidate.--Westmeath Guardian

MONAGHAN--We are in a fearful state with fever. One-fifth of the inmates of the poorhouse (upwards of 260) are in hospital, of these 140 are in fever. Every bed and blanket in the fever hospital is occupied, and in many instances there are two and three patients in one bed. There are upwards of forty cases in town and immediate vicinity without sufficient medical aid, or any nourishment.- Northern Standard

The favourites on whom report has conferred the distinguished honour of representing the interest of our Conservative community, are Sir Robert GORE BOOTH, Bart., of Lisadell; and John WYNNE, of Haslewood, Esq., who for some years was member for the borough of Sligo. They are good men and true.--Sligo Journal

SLIGO BOROUGH--From all we can learn the solicitor-general, Mr. MONAGHAN, will be invited to start for this borough. If he do, he will have an easy walk over the course.--Ibid.

This is a rumour which has got considerable circulation in this city and our neighbour county. We shall make inquiries before we make any furthr remark about the matter.

FEVER--Fever is on the increase in the neighbourhood of Kells. The sheds erected to contain 50 beds are now nearly occupied with patients. Upwards of 112 in the hospital at present, deaths very few, none for the last three weeks, owing to the very skilful management of Doctor Henry PENTLAND, the medical officer of the establishment.

OUTRAGES--On the night of Wednesday last a bullock the property of Widow SMITH of Scribogue, near Kells, was killed and carried away.
