Grand Orange Dinner.--A dinner took place at Morrison's, on Thursday evening, of Orangemen and Protestants professing Orange principles. The notice was but short, yet the attendance was numerous and highly respectable. The dinner was served up in the best style, and the extreme attention displayed towards the numerous guests, was similar to that always witnessed in the same establishment. -- Saunders's News Letter.
Handsome Donation.--Mrs. Conolly, the lady of our excellent Representative, Colonel Conolly, has sent One Hundred Pounds, to be distributed amongst the Dispensaries of this County. This Lady, whose philanthropy is recorded in the hearts of the poor, has by this last act, not only sent relief to the sick on her own estate, but to those throughout the county generally.
Sligo Constabulary.--In our report of the proceedings at the Sligo Conservative Meeting, we stated the mode adopted of superseding the Magistrates, as well as the instructions issued to the Constabulary force, not to obey the High Sheriff of the County. That Gentleman, lost not a moment in expressing his desire to the Lord Lieutenant, to retire from an office in which his situation was not respected, and in whose person every Magistrate and Gentleman in the County of Sligo was grossly and wantonly insulted. Mr. Robert Jones, jun. of Fortland, the Gentleman to whom we allude, formally tendered his resignation---a tender which his Excellency expressed his willingness to accept so soon as it was practicable to appoint a successor.
At a meeting of the Presbyterian Congregation of Ballykelly, convened by public notice on Saturday last, for the purpose of considering the plan of national Education proposed for Ireland, strong resolutions were entered into condemnatory of the exclusion of the Bible in its original state.
Marquis of Abercorn.It is with feeling of peculiar gratification that we notice the liberal and benevolent aid about to be conferred by this young Nobleman on the poor of the town of Strabane, and the circumjacent district. The Nobel Marquis, whose minority is just closed, has ordered, through his agent, Sir John Burgoyne, the sum of £500, to be expended on blankets, petticoats, and flannel jackets, for the poor on his estates, and to have their dwellings whitewashed. We cannot but wish that the Landlords of Ireland generally would, in proportion to their means, imitate his Lordship's example---self-preservation should excite to it as the best means of warding off, or at least alleviating, the awful pestilence with which we are threatened.--Strabane Paper.

Preparations on a very splendid and extensive scale are at present making at Ormean, the seat of the Marquis of Donegal, for the entertainment of a select party of the distinguished fashionables of the North of Ireland. Much hospitality will distinguish those days of elegant festivity.
Mr. Wm. Graham, of Mountjoy-forest, near Omagh, and member of the Royal College of Surgeons, of London, has been appointeed [sic] Assistant-Surgeon of his Majesty's ship Victory.
