THE WEATHER - THE CROPS - The weather is very broken and unpropitious. Turf and hay are suffering much in consequence, but the other crops are looking better than might be expected in these circumstances. We look forward to a much more abundant yield of oats in this county than we had ..... year, and the potatoe(sic) is yet quite safe. We heard some slight murmurings, but this was many days ago, and the fact of their paucity and discontinuance shows that they were without foundation.
THE MILITIA John P. MURPHY, Esq., son of the respected Assistant Barrister for this county, ahs been appointed a Lieutenant in our local force. We understand that the entire is to be inspected on the 15th instant, in order that it may be ascertained whether they are fit for removal.
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH Dr. BRADY, M.P. for Antrim, stated, when the question was before the House of Commons a few days ago, that ministers had f......ed their being in receipt of £35 a year from a congregation in order that they might be entitled to a stipend from Government. He alleged the Rev. Bell of Ballybay as his authority. The imputation was one which should not be lightly cast, and truth or falsity ought to be at once ascertained.
TOWNS' IMPROVEMENT ACT We have learned that the order to elect Commissioners for the Boroughs has come from the Lord Lieutenant. Eighteen to be appointed.
LORD LANESBOROUGH This illustrious nobleman and his amiable countess have arrived at Lanesborough Lodge, Belturbet, for the season.
LOUGH NEAGH DRAINAGE A meeting of the Standing Committee was held at Donegal Arms, Belfast, on Monday -- Charles W. ARMSTRONG, Esq., in the chair. Mr. WOODHOUSE, or Portadown, read a bill introduced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer for enabling the treasury to relieve the counties from the moiety of the expenses of the navigation, and he proposed several amendments. A resolution was passed by the meeting, approving the amendments, and requesting the members for the counties of Antrim, Down, Armagh, Tyrone, and Derry, to support the same. We understand the effect of the measure will be to relieve the five counties of charges payable out of the county cess, to the amount of about thirty thousand pounds. ----Telegraphic Circular.
The state of affairs as respects the war is far from satisfactory. Letters from the Crimea are destitute of incident, and if the armies before Sebastopol are pursuing their operations against that stronghold, they are doing so without much fuss or fanfarrondde(sic). Still the absence of intelligence of an active movement is disheartening, although it may all be but the quiet of resolute preparation. We hope so, yet we know of nothing to justify sanguine expectations. ----- Daily Express.
FUNERAL OF THE LATE EARL OF ANTRIM. Arrangements were made on a scale suitable to the rank and lineage of the lamented Earl of Antrim for his interment in the vault of his ancestors. The shell of the coffin is formed of strong pine, stuffed and lined with white satin, and is enclosed in a receptacle of lead. The outside is of Spanish mahogany, covered with rich crimson silk velvet, and ornamented with gold lacquered mounting. The coffin lid is surmounted by nine coronets, wrought with gold and crimson ; and the plate records the name and title of the deceased earl. ---- Belfast Daily Mercury

'Whereas, His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland having been pleased to approve of the Provisions of the Towns' Improvement (Ireland) Act, 1854, being carried into effect in the Town of Cavan, and Boundaries, specified from and after the 28th of July, 1855, and that the number of Commissioners to be elected for that purpose, should be limited to Eighteen, as by his Excellency's precept, in that behalf, addressed to R.

AT LAST The entire of this county with the exception of the Baronies of Tullyhaw, Lower Loughter, and Tullyhunco, has been unproclaimed. We know not why these three baronies have been made step-children of, but must only commence agitating for their liberation also.
AWAY, YE PROFANE. The Militia officers gave a ball in the Court-house on Tuesday night last, and had all the approaches to it guarded by an armed force against all who might date to intrude upon them. Several most respectable inhabitants of the town went down to hear the music, and though they were not inside even the Court-house yard, swords were drawn and bayonets fixed against them. We have also heard that several respectable young girls, who got near the ball-room, by a private entrance, were driven down the stairs leading from it at the point of the bayonet by orders from some of the gallant (?) officers. Indignation is only a feeble expression of the feeling with which the outrage on those who pay for the Court-house has been received.
CAVAN FAIR was held on Tuesday, and the show of stock was limited and rather inferior. Springers kept up their price, and young bullocks sold well. There was a great number of very good horses brought for sale, but hardly one of them found a bidder. The day passed over most quietly; there was little drunkenness and no brawling.
CAVAN PETTY SESSIONSMONDAY, AUG. 12.
Magistrates present Theophilus THOMPSON, Esq.
Susan MINTRE v. David KENNEDY.
A claim for 6s. 3d. for sprigging done for and delivered to the defendant.
The complainant proved that she got the piece to e worked for the 3d., but when done the defendant refused to give her more than 5s. This she agreed to take, but could not get the money, though she was obliged to make several journies(sic) for it.
The defendant stated that it was an understood thing that no money was to be given for work done until it was returned from the house for which it wrought. This day fortnight he offered to give her the amount and the costs of the summons, but she would not receive it, claiming for other expenses.
Mr. THOMPSON said she was entitled to costs for journeying into Cavan for her money, and he must, therefore, give her two shillings and sixpence costs in addition to the amount claimed.
Mathew GAYNOR v. James NULTY
A claim of 5s. for levies rendered to defendant by the complainant.
The services were rendered in attending and curing a horse, whose flesh was all covered over with warts. He made an agreement as to the price he was to get for effecting a cure.
The defendant stated that the horse was not cured by the complainant at all.
He only used straws in his "doctoring."
Mr. THOMPSON said the case was one for the Assistant Barrister to decide upon, and it must be left to him. He advised the defendant, however, to settle the matter with the poor man who cured his horse, or the Barrister would be likely to make him repent that he had not done so.
Mary CLERKIN v. John FITZPATRICK.
A charge of having been bitten by defendants dog.
Complainant proved that she went to defendants house to beg. It is in off the road, and it was in the middle of the day she went to the house.
Mr. John ARMSTRONG stated that the woman had no right to go to the house of the defendant, it was unlawful to beg, when she had the poor-house to go to. The dog, he was instructed to say, had an exceeding good character in the country.
Mr. THOMPSON dismissed the case, upon the ground that the complainant had no business to bring her to the defendants house. He would, however, suggest to him, out of humanity, to give something to the poor woman.
The defendant said he would not give her a farthing; she gave him too much trouble about the matter.
Martin BEATTY v. Philip MCAHILL
A charge that defendants son did suffer his horse willfully to trespass on complainants holdings.
The defendant stated that the summons was not served until last Saturday, and his won was at the salt-water for a week previously. He thought, therefore, that the case ought to be adjourned. Besides, why was he involved for his son s act, he being of full age, and able to answer for himself.
The case was postponed to next petty sessions.
[If the view which Mr. THOMPSON himself took of the matter, that the action complained of was done by the son, is the correct one, as it would seem most plainly to be, the proper course would have been to dismiss the case: postponing it in the circumstances can answer no purpose but that of harassing the defendant, and keeping him from his legitimate avocations of a carrier to and from Kells. --- ED. A.-C.]
Three street girls were brought before the court for loitering in the public road without any lawful business contrary to the act of 17 & 18 Vic., cap. 103.
There were each fined 40s. in default, to be imprisoned and kept to hard labour for a month.
Girls You will leave us our hair, your honor.
Mr. THOMPSON Not a grain of it. You must be cropped to the skull.
They were then given into custody, seemingly greatly affected at the prospective loss of their hair.
MARRIAGES IN IRELAND.
A REPORT on the number of marriages, that took place in Ireland last year (1854), with tables, contrasting them with those that were entered into for the eight previous years, arranged in his usual methodical and satisfactory way by Mr. DONNELLY, the Registrar General, is before us, and we proceed to make some statements from it, all of which are either curious or important. It ought to be remarked in the outset that of marriages entered into between Roman Catholics there is no return, as these are specially exempted from registration by the Act 7 & 8 Vic., c. 81, sec. 3. Irrespective of them there were 9,426 marriages registered in 1854, being a decrease of 771 on those entered into in the preceding year. As marriages in a country are in the direct ration of its prosperity there is little room for congratulation in this diminution; but, possibly, it may be accounted for by the obstinate protraction of the war, periods of suffering not being those in which marriages would be likely to be numerous. Of the entire number 5,186 took place between members of the Established Church, 2,701 in registered Presbyterian Meeting Houses, 77 in registered buildings, 1,447 in registered offices, 11 between members of the Society of Friends, and 2 between members of the Synagogue. Of the contracting parties, fully twelve and a half per cent. were widowers, and nearly seven per cent. widows; twenty six per cent. of the males, and forty three per cent. of the females, were unable to write their names, showing a considerable reduction, more especially amongst the women, on the number, who were similarly incompetent in 1853. In the Bailieborough district there were, in the whole, 46 marriages, and of the parties 37 were unable to write; in the Cootehill 97, and of the parties 63 were unable to write; and in the Manorhamilton 18 of the parties 6 being unable to write. In the entire County of Cavan there were 203 marriages, and of the parties, 50 men and 74 women signed with marks, so that, of men unable to write, judging from the registry of marriages, there are in the county two in the hundred less than the general average for Ireland, and of women similarly situated there are thirteen in the hundred. Of the neighbouring counties in the province Monaghan had 1 ½ times as many marriages and 1 ¾ times as many signing with marks; Fermanagh better than 1 ½ times as many marriages, and better than twice as many signing with marks; Armagh 1 ½ times as many marriages and nearly 1 ½ times as many unable to write.

ON FOR THE WAR. -- Forty three members of the Cavan Militia volunteered for the line on Thursday last, making a total of seventy eight who have taken on for active service from this force since its enrollment. They joined the 88th Regiment, and Mr. STONE, Lieutenant here, is, we believe, the officer who is to accompany them. As the volunteers were leaving the town on Tuesday morning, one of them, a fellow named JONES, stepped out of the ranks and, drawing a blackthorn stick, struck a young man named CASSIDY, a well conducted shoe and bootmaker, a blow upon the head with all his might, which seriously injured him. CASSIDY had no previous knowledge of the ruffian, who, when he did his work, returned to his place, unheeded by his comrades or the officer in command.
MELANCHOLY EVENT. -- A decent farmer, named Andrew LEDDY, who resided in the vicinity of Belturbet, was making hay in his own meadow along the banks of the River Erne on Friday last, when his son, a young man of some fifteen years of age, who was working with him, went in to have a bathe. The stream being rather rapid at the place, he was being carried away with it, and the father rushed in to his rescue, having taken time to disencumber himself from merely one leg of his trowsers(sic). Unfortunately, he did not effect what he desired, for one and the other was drowned. An inquest was held on the bodies next day by James BERRY, Esq., and a verdict in accordancy with the facts returned.
