ESTABLISHED CHURCH. - The Lord Bishop of Kilmore is holding a visitation in this town to-day, and the clergymen, who are attending it, will dine together in the evening. Covers will be laid for 130.
ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. - On Sunday last the Rev. John O'HARA, and the Rev. Mr. FERGUSON, were promoted to the order of priesthood in the Roman Catholic Cathedral of this town. The Right Rev. Dr. BROWN officiated, assisted by the Reverends John O'REILLY, Thomas MULVANY, John M'ENROE, Patrick MAGUINNESS and Thomas SMITH, so far as it was competent to them to assist. His lordship went through the service prescribed in the ritual in his usual solemn, impressive style, and the appearance of the young gentlemen themselves afforded great edification to a very large concourse of persons who were present on the occasion.
CAVAN PETTY SESSIONS. - There was a large number of cases on the book for Monday last, but they were not of any important character, being nearly all at the suit of the police for drunkness (sic) on the streets, or having pigs and cattle wandering on the road.
THE WEATHER - THE CROPS. - The weather during the past week was very adverse to hay making, but it was well calculated to ripen the other crops, which are looking admirably. A field of wheat, extending over two acres, of the growth of Mr. Lawrence KENNEDY of Ballyhaise, is one of the most luxuriant and promising things we ever saw. The stalk is fully six feet high - the ear heavy - the whole field even and clear of weeds, as a well kept flower bed, betokening good taste and industrial skill in the owner. It will be ripe in a fortnight, as it has already assumed the yellowish colour, which invites the sickle. The potato crop is still all that could be wished for. The fields are beautifully green, the tubers large and abundant, nor has the blight as yet shown itself.
CAVAN MAN. - At the late Competitive Examinations held at the India House, for appointments in the Hon. East Indian Company's Services, Mr. Thomas FITZPATRICK, M.B., T.C.D., was one of the successful candidates.
July 26, in St. Peter's Church, Major SHIRLEY, of the Monaghan Militia, to Anna, only daughter of Wm. Knox FAWCETTE, Esq., of Fortesque Terrace, Rathmines.

This School is strictly select, and the number of pupils very limited.
The remarkable fact, that more than half the pupils that have entered T.C.D. from the school, since its foundation, about twenty years ago, have been first honor men (some of them first of the first); affords satisfactory evidence of the efficient system of Education pursued.
Reference to the Venerable Archdeacon of Ardagh, Rector of Killeshandra, whose sons are pupils of the School, and to the Rev. F. SAUNDERSON, Rector of Kildallen.
Vacation will end on the 8th of August.
