Between nine and ten o’clock on Wednesday night, while the servants were in the act of bedding down the horses in Mr. Baker’s stables at Ballydavid, between Caher and Tipperary, two ruffians rushed in--when one of them fired at the steward, named Dwyer, who was lying on some straw, and wounded him with balls in the hip and abdomen. He was living, but with little or no hope of recovery, on Friday.
On Thursday the 12th inst. Mr. Thomas Macken, of Brookborough in this county, and Mr. William Robert Rogers, of Rutland-street, Dublin, were sworn in Attorneys, and admitted Members of the Honourable Society of King’s Inns.
His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant has given a series of Grand Dinners, at which the greater part of the Nobility and Gentry of Ireland have been occasionally present.
The Earl of Belmore and Captain Corry have arrived in Hamilton-place, London, from Ireland.
Letters patent have passed the Great Seal of Ireland, to appoint Wm. Campbell, Jonathan Sisson Cooper, and D’arcy Manon, Esqrs., to be Commissioners of Stamps--they have accordingly assumed their seats at the Board Room. Mr. Campbell, who is now Chairman of the Commissioners, was Comptroller of the Legacy Duties in London; he arrived in Dublin on Saturday, accompanied by an English Secretary.
Catholic Burial Ground. The High Sheriff of the County Waterford, (John Congreeve, Esq.) has given half an acre of ground, to be attached to the parish church of Moancoin, in the same county, as burial ground for the Catholics of that parish.--[Patriot].
Duty on Paper in Ireland.--It is, we understand, the intention of Mr. C.H. Hutchinson, the patriotic Member for Cork, to move for certain returns connected with the paper manufacture in Ireland, with a view to ground thereon a motion for the total repeal of the duty--it is insignificant in amount, but injurious and oppressive in its operatton [sic].--Dublin M. Post.
A farm-house at Fortlands, near Charleville, the property of
Chidley Coote, Esq., was burned down on Friday night.--[Limerick Chronicle].
A poor man, named Farmer, residing in the island of Lough Macnean, was lost while proceeding from his house to the shore in a cot, on Thursday last. He had been paddling with a loy, when a sudden squall of wind arose and nearly upset his frail bark, by which he was thrown out and drowned.
The Right Honourable the Attorney-General has filed an information, in his Majesty’s Court of Exchequer, against Thomas Tobin, of Dungarven, in the county of Waterford, publican, for having drawn and engrossed a deed, or lease, whereby he has incurred a penalty of fifty pounds British, no person but a Barrister-at-Law, or an Attorney being qualified to draw or engross any deed for profit or gain. We hope this may put a stop to all persons not legally qualified, from drawing leases or deeds, and thereby incurring penalties, and doing injury not only to the professional Gentlemen who, to acquire such profession, expend a considerable sum, but also to the public, who, through the ignorance of such persons, are very frequently involved in expensive, and sometimes ruinous litigation. We are informed that said Tobin has been for some time in the habit of drawing leases and deeds, and that it is the determination of Solicitors and Attornies to punish all such offenders.
Colonel the Hon. James Henry Keith Stewart, the present Chairman of the Board of Customs in Dublin, is to move to the Military Account Office and will be succeeded at the Custom Board, in Dublin, by William Boothby, Esq., the Deputy Chairman of the Custom Commissioners in Londom [sic].
Orders have been received from the head Board of Excise in London, to consolidate the Surveys and Walks in the Tralee and Mallow Districts, agreeable, to the recommendation of the Parliamentary Commissioners. This arrangement will double the duty on the officers whose numbers will be reduced accordingly.
The Dublin Society has presented the Gold Medal of the Association and Sixty Guineas, to Samuel Boyse, Esq., and the Rev. Mr. Hickey, in token of the effective exertions of those Gentlemen in establishing an Agricultural School in the County Wexford; the plan on which this excellent School is carried on we laid before our readers some time since. The Dublin Society recommended the formation of such Schools to the warm support of every person solicitous for the prosperity of Ireland.
