Suppression of Street Begging.

  The meeting at the Town-Hall on Monday last, for the above purpose, was unanimously attended, and the feeling and sentiments on the occasion, quite unanimous. Capt. Jones and George Spear, Esq., kindly offered their services to wait on the inhabitants individually, in order to ascertain the amount of their subscriptions. Some preliminary arrangements were made, and a Committee appointed, who are to meet again to-morrow, and to report to an adjourned general meeting on Monday. Thus a beginning has been made in this necessary business, which, we trust, will terminate satisfactorily.


  Castleblayney, Feb. 21, 1824.--On the evening of Thursday the 19th inst. which was the birth-day of the Hon. Cadwallader, Blayney, son and heir to the present Noble Lord, and which completed his 21st year, this town presented a scene of rejoicing and festivity, unequalled in the annals of the county. We had been awaiting with joyful anticipation, a period which should present an opportunity so favourable for testifying that respect and love which a grateful tenantry must feel towards a noble family, not more distinguished by its high rank and noble origin, than its liberality and attention to the welfare of the community at large.


  The 97th and 99th Regiments are to be raised in Ireland, and the 98th in England.


  The 58th Regiment are to replace, at Kinsale, the 57th, ordered to the Mauritius. The 58th are chiefly Irish.


Port of Sligo.
  We are happy to state, from the authority of letters which we have seen, that there is every probability of a grant of money being made by Government, for the purpose of carrying into effect (according to Mr. Nimmo’s plan and estimate,) the proposed improvements of the Harbour of Sligo, between the present Quay and Finisklin, so long the subject of earnest solicitude with those who have the interest of our Town and Trade sincerely at heart. How cheering alos must the prospect be to the poor labouring classes of this populous district, who are likely by such means, to procure for themselves and destitute families, an honest and independent mode of livelihood for a considerable time to come.--Sligo Journal.


  The Farming Society have resolved to form ploughing matches in the districts of Fermanagh, Galway, Limerick, Cavan, and Leitrim, this year, with liberal premiums to the most deserving.


  The Attorney-General has filed a Criminal Information against the Proprietor of the Morning Star, for an alleged Libel on his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant, which appeared in the First Number of that Journal.
