Proposals may be forwarded to the Rev. John J. Egan, Farnacere House, Derrylane, at whose residence may be seen the plan and specifications.


Bernard Bailey, who shot himself because he was jilted, writes: - "Would you like to know how a man feels who is about to commit suicide? In the first place, he must feel so badly that no matter what is to come hereafter, it is more endurable than the present; and secondly, he must feel that more endurable or not, he cannot help the act; that, if even the future is worse than the present, the present is unendurable. I supposed medical men would like to know just the mental condition of one who could shriffle (sp?) off this mortal coil. It is this - My nerves and senses are as sound as they ever were. I can attend to business as efficiently, and as fully realise that the chief end of man is to gather ducats, as ever I could. But I can also realise that without my better half, I am as a perfect engine without steam - useless. Doctors of divinity would doubtless like to know my moral status and religious ideas. My moral idea is this - that man should do his duty inspite of obstacles and consequences, and that so doing is the only thing which will bring the peace which passeth all understanding. I acknowledge that I was too weak so to do. In regard to a future state, my reason does not fully accept that there is a future state of which we will be conscious. I believe in the immortality of the soul, or the life principle, or whatever it is, as I believe in the immortality of a bushel of coal; that it may change its form so essentially as to be unconscious of having existed before, but that still, as the coal, it is not destroyed, but simply changes its form. My heart may speak differently to me, but even then I believe whatever it is, is inevitable, so it must all proceed from One great original, and so must be in accordance with His will. However, I shall probably know more about it in twenty-four hours than all the D.D.'s living. I am not crazy. I know that the world is full of good and enjoyable things, and that they were put here for our good and benefit, and that we should strive and work to obtain them. But I am unable to care for them without the love of my darling. I wish to state that Miss _____ is in no way responsible for my having loved her; that almost before she had ground for thinking that my feelings towards her were more tender than those of friendship, she informed me that her heart was another's, and that, while she esteemed and cared for me as a friend, I could be nothing more to her. But she was mistaken in that, and though I could not convince her of it while living, she will realise it when I sleep the sleep that knows no waking. A sweet good night to all." On the back of a sheet of notepaper were the words "Respect this." On the other side there was the following:- "I wish to be buried in the clothing in which I die. Do not move me from where I am found except to my grave. Bury me in a plain pine coffin, and have me carried to my grave in a one-horse spring waggon. (sic) Do not let the total cost of my burial exceed five dols. As the last request of a dying man, I conjure you to respect these instructions."

Ballyjamesduff, June 5th, 1876

"Gentlemen,- In the report of your proceedings on last Tuesday in the Cavan papers, it is stated that Dr. ALCOCK, of Kilnaleck, has obtained a month's leave of absence on account of ill health, having appointed me as his locum ___ 'at his own expense, and that he would pay me.'

"I beg to take the earliest opportunity of correcting the erroneous impression caused by this statement, as I distinctly informed Dr. Alcock that I would take no remuneration from him.

"In acting thus, I am merely following the custom of medical officers, who recognize it as a matter of etiquette and courtesy to accept no fee from each other under such circumstances.

"Your obedient Servant,
"John J. LOUGH.

On Thursday evening, 15th inst, the members of the Bailieborough Wesleyan Bible Class entertained a large number of friends in the Wesleyan Chapel of the town. The occasion was marked by an address and presentation from the members of the Bible Class to their esteemed teacher, the Rev. William WAUGH, on his removal from Bailieborough. On the motion of Mr. R. FEARON, seconded by Mr. H. MORROW, Mr. R. GIBSON was called to the chair. Addresses were afterwards delivered by the chairman, Revs. W. WAUGH and W. FEARON, also by Mr. R. FEARON. The address - a handsome illuminated one - was read by Mr. R. G. KING, which was presented with some choice theological works to Mr. Waugh by Mr. Gibson. Mr. Waugh expressed his thanks in a suitable reply. The committee of management supplied a tea and supper. The viands were liberally distributed by the following ladies:- Miss J. SMALL, Miss K. A. KING, Miss BROWN, Miss MARTIN and Miss ROUNDTREE. The Wesleyan choir went through a select programme of sacred music, rendered highly effective by Miss King's harmonium accompaniment. Special mention must also be made to the beautiful solos sung by Miss FORSYTHE. Mr. R. Fearon moved a cordial and amusing vote of thanks to the ladies for their kindness. The Rev. W. Fearon brought the meeting to a close with prayer.


It is with much regret we announce today the retirement of our esteemed townsman, Mr. HAGUE, from the Chairmanship of the Town Commissioners, after filling the office during eight eventful years with great credit to himself, with universal satisfaction to the inhabitants, and much advantage to the interests of the town. He stood very high in public esteem when he was elected to office; and now that he retires from public life he carries with him a greatly enhanced measure of popular appreciation and affection. We are sure that there is a universal desire that health and every other blessing which can make life a blessing and a joy may abundantly crown the remaining years of a prolonged and honourable life.

It is also our duty to announce that Mr. Edward KENNEDY has been unanimously elected as Chairman of the Town Commissioners in the place of Mr. Hague. We are sure that this election will be received with universal approval; and that Mr. Kennedy will be loyally supported in the discharge of his very important duties, and we anticipate that whenever circumstances may render his retirement necessary, he shall have won for himself even a higher place in the esteem and regard of his fellow-townsmen than that which he now occupies.


The quarter Sessions for this division of the County commenced on Tuesday last before

R. W. GAMBLE, ESQ., Q.C., chairman pro tem.

The following magistrates occupied seats on the Bench:- R. BURROWES, Theo. THOMPSON, W. A. MOORE, J. G. TATLOW@, R. ERSKINE, Philip SMITH, J. T. DILLON, and Eugene M'MANUS, Esqrs., and Major SAUNDERSON and Capt. SAUNDERSON.

The following gentlemen were sworn as the


Messrs. Wm. ADAMS (foreman), Daniel BELL, John MAGUIRE, Francis RICHMOND, Richard LEVINGSTONE, John MURPHY, Babington LITTLE, James LOVE, James LYONS, John BANNON, Patrick DONOHO, Wm. EVANS, Humphreys FEGAN, Henry GAFFNEY, Patrick KANE, Thomas LAHEY, Thomas NAYLOR, John PRUNTY, Wm. THICKPENNY, Thomas VEITCH, James C. ARMSTRONG, Wm. BARTLEY, jun., and Wm. GREGG.

His Worship, addressing the Grand Jury, said - Gentlemen, I am happy to say that Mr. ROBINSON's illness is only temporary, as he has sprained his ankle, and this is why I have come here in his place. In looking over the calendar it appears to be light; and I do not think there are any cases to call forth much observation, except that of Anne MAGUIRE, who is indicted for larceny; and another case, in which a number of persons are indicted for an assault occasioning grievous bodily harm. Some of those persons may be innocent; but if you find that a number of persons committed an assault, they are all guilty, even though it was one done so.


Michael BRANNAGAN, Bridge-street, Cavan, applied for a transfer of license.

Major SAUNDRSON said he objected to an increase of public-houses in this County, and remarked that the Judges of Assize have repeatedly expressed themselves as regards their increase.

His Worship, however, said that a transfer of license was altogether a different affair form granting a new one.


Mrs. Susan CLERKIN, Main-street, Cavan, applied for a transfer of license.


John M'CABE, Redhills, applied for a transfer of license.

A letter was read from the Rev. E. B. WHYTE-VENABLES to the effect that although he objected to public-houses in general, yet he did not object to the present application, as such appeared to be wanted in Redhills.


James MAGOVERN, Blacklion, applied for a transfer of license.


John MOORE, Ballynagh, applied for a transfer of license.


Laurence MASTERSON, Main-street, Arva, applied for a transfer of license.


James NAAN, Belturbet, applied for a transfer of license.

Mr. Tatlow said that in Belturbet there was not a single hotel with proper stabling accommodation. He hoped for the future that no license would be granted for a hotel without such being an accompaniment.

Several witnesses deposed to the one in question having ample stabling accom- modation.


Mrs. Matilda Thompson, Belturbet, applied for a transfer of license.



Anne MAGUIRE was indicted for stealing a child's dress and pinafore at Cavan, on 1st April last, the property of Miss Anne MATTHEWS.

The following jury were sworn to try the case:- Messrs. John JACKSON, Patrick M'CAUL, James SHERIDAN, Wm. WHYTE, Matthew BLAKNEY, Richard CLEMENGER, Robert HEALY, Wm. PRATT, John SHERIDAN, Wm. BLAKLEY, James COFFEY, and James FOSTER.

Miss Matthews said she remembered the 1st of April last; was in her shop that day; about 8 o'clock she sent her servant on a message, and as soon as she done so she left her shop and went into a parlour - the door of which opens into the shop; there was no one then in the shop; a few minutes afterwards her attention was attracted by a rustling of paper; she went out to the shop and found the prisoner in the act of removing a child's dress and pinafore from a stand; she had it partly off the stand; witness said to her, "you unfortunate woman are you stealing?" she said, "I'm mad, I don't know what I'm doing;" caught hold of her by the hand and she dropped the dress and endeavoured to get away; witness dragged her back and put her on a seat; soon afterwards she gave her in charge of the police; prisoner told witness that she was looking for out-door relief that day, and that her family were in a miserable condition.

To the prisoner - I caught hold of you by the arm and not by the throat; you told me you had neither means or ways to support your children.

(Here the prisoner commenced to make a statement about her being a desolate woman, &c.)

In addressing the jury the prisoner said it was some other woman took the articles, as there were ten of them present at the time, but she did not know any of them.

She was found guilty and sentenced to six months' imprisonment.

John M'MANUS was indicted for having a grinding-stone in his possession at Derrycasson, on 27th May last, the property of Mrs. Isabella VEITCH.

Mrs. Veitch said she lived in Ballyheady; her husband - David Veitch - was dead 8 years; had a grinding-stone in her house for 5 years until a year ago, when it was taken from the place; no one ever claimed it before that date; didn't see it afterwards until last Wednesday, when Acting-Constable HICKEY produced it at Ballyconnell Petty Sessions; couldn't identify the stone (produced); a man named FITZGERALD said he sold it to the prisoner.

Acting-Constable Hickey said in consequence of information received he went to the prisoner's house and took the stone (produced); David Veitch accompanied him; didn't arrest prisoner, but summoned him; prisoner said he purchased the stone from a man named Fitzpatrick.

Pat Fitzpatrick said he sold the stone to the prisoner, who gave him 2s. for it.

To Mr. Kennedy - I got the stone first from a gentleman connected with drainage works at Ballyconnell; secondly, at Mrs. Veitch's, as I lent it formerly to Mr. Veitch, who was now dead; Mrs. Veitch wasn't aware of such proceedings.

His Worship said he did not see any grounds for laying any charge to the prisoner, as another man swore he sold the stone to him.

The jury, without any hesitation, found the prisoner not guilty.

(Before Judge Warren and a Special Jury.)


This was a suit for divorce, a vinculo matrionii, on the alleged ground of adultery by the wife. The respondent denied the allegation, and pleaded recriminatory acts on the part of the husband. The parties are highly connected.

Mr. Sergeant ARMSTRONG applied for a commission to take the evidence in the country of a material and necessary witness. The witness in question had been subpoened by the petitioner, but was unable to come to town owing to illness. She was the wife of Mr. James BARRY, of Macollop Castle.

Mr. PORTER opposed the application.

His Lordship stated he would deal with the application later in the day.

Mr. Sergeant Armstrong, in stating the case, said he was happy to say it was of rare occurrence in Ireland. The petition was filed on the 29th October, 1875. The petitioner was Mr. Richard Spread MORGAN. He resided at Bridestown, in the County Cork, and was a gentleman well known. He was driven to seek a judicial separation from his wife, Lady Catherine Louisa MORGAN, on the ground of adultery and cruelty. The ground of cruelty would not be pressed, and the only question which the jury would have to investigate would be the truth of the charge of adultery. As he instructed, that charge would be established beyond all doubt. The petitioner had been an officer, and was captain in the Royal Cork Artillery. He was the son of a gentleman well connected in the County Cork. The respondent was highly connected, and was one of the daughters of the Earl of Mountcashel, who had been possessed of considerable landed property. The parties were married on the 10th August, 1858. The respondent was then Lady Catherine Louisa MOORE. The marriage took place in the parish church of Kilworth, a place from which the eldest son of the house of Mountcashel derived his title of Viscount Kilworth. There were issue of the marriage a son, whom Providence had taken away. There were three girls. One of them, Louisa Jane, was now 16; a second, Marie Florence, aged about 15; and a third, Anna Priscilla, aged 11. These children would have the misery of hearing some of the revelations which the petitioner felt himself compelled to make. The petition charged that, in the year 1866, at Moore Park, the residence of the respondent's father, and also at Glengloss, the respondent committed adultery with Wm. MANGAN, a groom. The petition also charged that she committed adultery with John FLEMING, a dog boy and fisherman, at Ballinatray. She was also charged with being guilty of criminal conduct with one Arthur William VINCENT. She was first guilty of misconduct with him at Jura, in Scotland. She admitted to the husband that she had been unfaithful to him. In November, 1866, her husband wasconfined in Cork jail for having assaulted a gentleman named HUNT, whom it was alleged had insulted her. She visited her husband at that time in jail, and it was alleged she requested her husband to take proceedings against her own brother, the Hon. Moore SMITH. Her husband declined to do, and she then, as he (Sergeant Armstrong) was instructed, asserted she had been untrue to him, at least, 100 times. Although this lady was highly born, and reared in the lap of luxury, it would appear from her conduct that but little control was exercised over her education and moral training. She appeared to be warm and emotional in her feelings, arbitrary in her disposition towards those of inferior rank. It was also alleged that she had misconducted herself with Mr. Henry BACON, Juban. Evidence would be given that she was guilty of cruelty towards her husband; that she pulled "his whiskers, cut him with a whip, pointed a gun at him, and prevented the servants from cooking his food. It was alleged that she filled his boots with water and struck him with a chair. He (Sergeant Armstrong) would not say one word more against her than the exigencies of the case demanded. In 1868 the parties separated. She had filed an answer, and specifically denied all the allegations of adultery and misconduct. She also made counter charges of cruelty against her husband, but preferred no other allegation. Pending the hearing of the present suit she made an application for alimony, alleging that she had only £60 a year to live on, and that her husband was possessed of means. The old adage that a house divided against itself could not stand, received another verification in this case. Any little property that the petitioner had was in the hands of his creditors, and he was at present living on the bounty of his father, a gentleman advanced in life. The respondent was a good horsewoman and found of hunting. On one occasion when she was enceinte, her husband wished to prevent her going out hunting, but she broke the stable door, and went in defiance of him. The learned sergeant then detailed a variety of alleged acts of misconduct of the par of the respondent, and stated they would be established in evidence, and would fully warrant the jury in finding in favour of the petitioner.

It was here arranged that a commission should proceed to Lismore that evening to examine a material and necessary witness.

Some evidence was then given.

The case was not concluded.

Counsel for the petitioner - Mr. Sergeant ARMSTRONG, Mr. RYAN, Q.C., and Mr. Walter BOYD. Attorney - Mr. J. T. O'CONNELL. For respondent - Mr. J. MURPHY, Q.C.; Mr. A. M. PORTER, Q.C.; and Mr. MONROE. Attorney - Mr. Alex M'CARTHY.
