ORDINATION IN CAVAN. - On Monday last, Mr. ANTHONY SMITH received minor orders at the hands of the good Bishop of this diocese; and Mr. BERNARD M'MANNUS was, on the same occasion, promoted to the sub-Deacon's ____. The former gentleman went through his proper course of studies, in Paris; and the latte (sic) in Rome. Both will be ordained priests in a few days.

DEATH FROM EXTRACTION OF A TOOTH. - We are sorry that we have to record the death of Mr. John EGAN, Farnham Road, near this town, which took place yesterday evening. It appears that the deceased, who was a clerk in the office of Mr. BRUSH, agent to Lord Farnham, and was respected by all who knew him for his mild and unintermeddling disposition, got a tooth extracted some time ago, from which an abscess of the jaw resulted, ending in his death, nothwithstanding that all, which medical aid could do, was made available for him.

CHRISTMAS PRESENTS. - On Tuesday evening about 180 of the children of the Sunday and day schools, at Killeshandra, were invited to the Rectory House, where a room was nicely fitted up with a beautiful tree, glaring with oranges, and various decorations; the presents - in the form of books, toys, and clothing - suitable to the childrens (sic) requirements, were previously arranged with the names on each, and then distributed by the Archdeacon and family. The children all seemed highly delighted with the kindness and attention paid them.

COOTEHILL COMMMISONERS. - It is our pleasing duty to state, that the election of Town Commissioners for the Town of Cootehill, has been settled; and with regard to the nine gentlemen chosen by the rate-payers, we may say that, so far as they are concerned, they will do their duty faithfully. Nothing else might have been expected, owing to the address of the excellent and venerable Chairman, Mr. M'INTOSH; and also from the efficient manner in which Mr. MORGAN, the clerk did his duty.
