LIMERICK, Nov. 22- On Wednesday night a
stack of hay was set on fire in Sir Wm. Reade's haggard, at Tomgrany, and
consumed; a quantity of corn would have met a similar fate but for the timely
assistance and exertions of the Police and Military stationed in that village.
The haggard is close to the road, and the hay consumed was not far detached from
a much larger quantity ricked in the same place. Captain Drought and the other
Magistrates are to assemble this day in Tomgrany to investigate the matter.
CASTLEBAR, Nov. 24- On Sunday night, the walls of the Pound of
Knockegan, near Ballina, were broken down, and the cattle were liberated. On
Monday night, a gang attacked the house and a herd of Mr. Bourns, of
Castleconnor, whom they beat desperately. One of the fellows asked the leader
whether they should finish him, but he desired to have him spared for that time.
ARREST OF A GRAND JUROR
Cork, Nov. 26- A circumstance
occurred on Monday last, which from its novelty in this part of the world, the delicate
nature of the case, and the respectability of the parties concerned, has
been the chief topic of conversation in this city.- The facts as we have been
credibly informed, are these: - At the usual hour for attendance, Mr. Sheriff
Lawe was proceeding to the Court, when at the door, he was accosted by Mr. Wm.
Gregg, Attorney, who informed him, "that the Grand Jury were desirous for
his attendance and that they were waiting for him." Sheriff Lawe
immediately hurried to the Jury room, accompanied by Mr. Gregg, and knocked at
the door, at which that Gentleman put a Writ into the Sheriff's hand, and said
that it was against Mr. William Beare, who was in that room, and insisted that
he should immediately be arrested. On the instant the door was opened by one of
the Gentlemen inside, and Mr. Gregg endeavoured to force in, but the door with
much difficulty was closed against him by the Gentlemen inside.
On Thursday night last, the
incendiaries set fire to a large quantity of corn on the lands of Grange, near
Buttevant, the property of R. Rogers, Esq., which was totally consumed.
DEATH OF THE REV. MR. O'CALLAGHAN, P.P. OF BRAY
On Tuesday, the 18th inst., aged
68 years, the Rev. Christopher O'Callaghan, P.P. of Bray. For the period of 32
years he governed the parish of Bray, blending the manners of the Gentleman and
the scholar with the rigid principles of the Gospel. Endowed with intellect of
an ordinary description, his society was sought after, yet he declined the
smiles and caresses of the worldly great- he had passed this vale, but his
virtues live after him. In order to form a just estimate of his moral worth, and
the veneration in which he was held by persons of every class, we need but call
the attention of the reader to the high respect paid to his remains on the day
of his interment. At half-past eleven o'clock, a number of respectable Clergymen
from the city and county of Dublin, assembled to perform the last offices of
religion. High Mass was chanted by Dr. Lube, attended by Deacon and Sub-Deacon.
Immediately after, the line of procession was formed in the following order:-
It was a day of mourning- all the shops in town were closed. The
procession moved from Bray about two o'clock-the concourse was immense. The Earl
of Meath, and his son, Lord Ardee, was observed mingled with the crowd. At the
foot of the hill leading to the Chapel, the Clergy commenced the De Profundis,
and were answered by the crowd. Here the Noble Earl appeared with his head
uncovered- illustrious by birth, he is still more illustrious by his virtues-
this difference of religion caused no uncharitable feeling towards his
fellow-christians at the grave.
At Martin Crescent, the Lady of Henry
Loyghnan, Esq. of a son and heir.
At Ballinrobe, Tomas Richards, Esq, to
Mrs. Browne, widow of George Browne, Esq. of Brownestown, county Mayo.
PRIVILEGE OF SUITORS FROM ARREST
The plaintiff in this cause, who is a
Barrister at Law, having been arrested by the Sheriffs of the City of Dublin, at
the suit of one Patrick Murray, for upwards of 200l., applied this day to his
Honor the Master of the Rolls, to be discharged from custody. This motion was
grounded on an affidavit of the said Rowe; stating, that having received notice
in the above cause, of a motion on the part of the Defendant, to be made in this
Court, he was actually, in the day of his arrest, engaged in making an affidavit
to oppose said motion; that having gone to the King's Bench Office to purchase a
Chancery Affidavit Stamp, to engross said Affidavit, he was informed there was
no such sold there; that he went thereupon to the corner of Church-street, when
Deponent was informed such Stamps were sold by one Stewart, and which place he
swore, he believed, was the nearest to purchase same; but was also disappointed;
whereupon Plaintiff was proceeding to cross the New Bridge, at Church-street, in
order to purchase said Chancery Affidavit Stamp, and was arrested by the said
In an Action or Suit, raised and insisted in before the
Consistorial or Commissary Court of Scotland, at the instance of Henry Martin
Blake, Esq of Windfield, in the County of Galway, Ireland, presently resided in
the City of Edinburgh, against Anastatia Gossen, for dissolving his marriage
with her, contracted in Scotland, on the ground of the Lady's unchastity. The
Judges of the said Court, after a deliberate trial, and proof had in their
presence, on the 24th ultimo, pronounced judgment- finding her guilty
accordingly, and therefore divorcing and separating her from the said Henry
Martin Blake, his society, fellowship, and company, in all time coming- and
finding that the said Anastatia Gossen had forfeited all the rights of a wife,
and that the said Henry Martin Blake is entitled to all his rights and either to
live single or marry again, the same as if he never had been married to the said
Anastatia Gossen, or as if she were naturally dead.
|ENNIS, Nov. 27- Yesterday, the Ennis Yeomanry were
inspected by Brigade Major Corker, who seemed highly pleased with their clean
and soldier-like appearance.
A Meeting of the Magistrates took place on Saturday last, at Tomgreany, to investigate respecting the burning of Sir Wm. Reade's hay. Nothing was elicited to lead to a discovery, but the Magistrates have offered large rewards for information.
Corneilus Kelliher, Jas. and Denis M'Namara, convicted at the last Special Sessions of Six-mile-Bridge, for attacking Mr. Finch's herdsmen, at Cragoe, were yesterday morning sent from Limerick to the hulk at Cove. The Viceregal clemency has, as we understand, been extended to John Lacy and Patrick Lynch, who were also concerned; in the former, for his humane conduct in preserving the life of one of the herdsmen from the fury of the assailants, and to the latter in consideration of his youth.
Honora Dundon, Bridget Dundon, alias O'Brien, and Catherine Dundon, were committed to the jail of this town, a few days since, charged with murdering the child of said Catherine.
On Monday, Mr. James Clarke, Officer of Excise, accompanied by Lieut. Foster, and a detachment of the 4th Revenue Corp, seized at Catlura, twelve large sacks of malt, together with a quantity of illicit spirits, which were lodged in the King's stores there. They also made 5 prisoners.
CARRICK-ON-SUIR, Nov. 21-About midnight on Wednesday, the pretty little cottage in the garden of the Rev. S. O'Grady, in which he usually sits in the morning, was discovered to be on fire. While we regret that the fire was evidently malicious, we have the satisfaction to know, that the conduct of his poor neighbours exceeds all praise; by their exertions, the fire was got under in about ten minutes after it was observed. The lighted turf which was thrust into a corner of the thatch could not have been there many minutes before the alarm was given, as so little damage was done as to be perfectly repaired in three or four hours yesterday. The object of the incendiary, as guessed at, was to consume the informations taken by the Gentleman as a Magistrate, which were supposed to be kept in the cottage. When the danger was over, they who had started from their beds to assist, obstinately refused all remuneration for their trouble- at last they were prevailed on to take it, but to Mr. Grady's surprise, he was no sooner down stairs yesterday morning, than they came in a body to return it- declaring that they only took it the night before, that his Reverence might go to bed, as he seemed inclined to stay all night arguing the point with them. Who, after this, will say that the lower orders of Irish are incapable of attachment or disinterestedness."
On Thursday, the 20th inst., a Drover from the County of Longford, came with a drove of pigs to the house of James Johnston, who keeps a slaughter house near Portadown, in the County of Armagh, and stopped to get the pigs killed. About seven o'clock in the evening, the Drover went out of Johnston's house to the yard, and was in a sitting posture when he was seen by a daughter of Johnston's, who, in the dark, mistaking him for a dog, went into the house and told a servant boy to come out and shoot the dog. The boy did come out, and fired, and, melancholy to relate, killed the ill-fated man. An investigation of the business was immediately had before Curran Woodhouse, Esq. a Magistrate at Portadown, and an inquest was also held, when it appeared that Johnston had been much annoyed by dogs coming about his yard, and that he paid his boy five-pence a day for killing them. The verdict of the Jury was, that the deceased died of a gun-shot wound, received from Edward Collins, who fired at him, mistaking him for a dog.
[From the Dublin Evening Post]
We understand that the Orange
Association, about which so much has been written and said, has adopted a new
system of rules and regulations, arranged by the Grand Lodge of Ireland,
assembled in Dublin on the 14th of August, 1823. To these rules they have
prefixed a short declaration, and a copy of the oaths of allegiance supremacy,
and abjuration. It appears, that according to the new rules, no other oaths are
to be taken by the members of this Association, nor any secret to be kept,
except the passwords by which they are to be known to one another, as members of
the same body. We subjoin the declaration and the oaths, which are, it seems to
be taken before magistrates, and not privately administered. The present
officers of the Grand Lodge of Ireland, are as follows:
This association is formed by
persons, desiring to the utmost of their power, to support and defend his
Majesty King George the Fourth, the Constitution and Laws of this Country, and
the succession to the throne in his Majesty's illustrious house, being
Protestant, for the defence of their persons and property, and for the
maintenance of the peace of the country; and for these purposes the members hold
themselves obliged, when lawfully called upon, to be at all times ready to
assist the civil and military powers, in the just and lawful discharge of their
duty. They associate also in honor of King William the Third, Prince of Orange;
whose name they bear, whose Glorious Memory they hold in reverence, and whose
Illustrious Deeds they annually commemorate, tending as they did in the
restoration of the Civil and Religious Liberty, and of the pure form of Religion
established in these Realms.
QUALIFICATIONS REQUISITE FOR AN ORANGEMAN
He should have a sincere love and veneration for his Almighty Maker, [cannot read two lines]; a firm and steadfast faith in the Saviour of the world, convinced that he is the only mediator between a sinful creature and an offended Creator. His disposition should be humane and compassionate, and his behaviour kind and conciliatory. He should be an enemy to savage brutality and christian cruelty; a lover of rational and improving society; faithfully regarding the Protestant religion, and sincerely desiring to propagate its precepts; zealous in promoting the honor, happiness, and prosperity of his King & Country; heartily desirous of victory and success in those pursuits, yet convinced that God alone can grant them. He should have an hatred of cursing and swearing, and taking the name of God in vain; and he should use all opportunities of discouraging these shameful practices among his brethren- Wisdom and prudence should guide his action-temperance and sobriety, honesty and integrity, direct his conduct; and the honor and glory of his King and Country be the motives of his endeavours.

And I do swear, that I will bear faithful and true allegiance to his Majesty King George the Fourth, and him will defend, to the utmost of my power, against all traitorous conspiracies, and attempts whatsoever, which shall be made against his person, crown or dignity. And I will do my utmost endeavour to disclose and make known to his Majesty, and his successors, all treasons and traitorous conspiracies which I shall know to be against him or any of them. And I do faithfully promise, to the utmost of my power, to support, maintain, and defend the succession of the Crown against the descendants of the said James, and against all other persons whatsoever; which, succession, by an Act, entitled, "An Act for the further limitation of the Crown, and better securing the rights and liberties of the subject, "is, and stands limited to the princess Sophia, Electress and Duchess Dowager of Hanover, and the heirs of her body, being Protestants. And all these things I do plainly and sincerely acknowledge and swear, according to these express words by me spoken, and according to the plain commons sense & understanding of the same words, without any equivocation, mental evasion, or secret reservation, whatsoever. And I do make this recognition, acknowledgement, abjuration, renunciation, and promise, heartily, willingly, and truly, upon the true faith of a Christian.- So help me God.

LIMERICK, Dec. 3- On Sunday
night, the Rev. Edward Geraghty, attended by a party of the 10th Regiment, and
the Police, at Newcastle, proceeded to the Parish of Killeedy, where they
apprehended several persons, charged with being concerned in the plunder and
burning of his Glebe house, in March, 1821; it is a curious but undoubted fact,
that the principal actors in the burning and devastation of Mr. Geraghty's
property, were individuals particularly connected with his domestic concerns,
and in whom he placed the greatest confidence.

We copy the annexed Opinion of Counsellor Finlay, from the Dublin Weekly Register, of September 18, 1819, and at this period it must prove highly interesting to the public here. Counsellor Finlay's reputation as an opinion in such matters is well known, and though given for another place, of course the general law as stated equally affects and governs the Tolls of Galway.

Quere 6th- What is the highest toll
that can be charged upon cattle, at any fair or market, and can such toll be
charged upon cattle before they are sold, (4 Ann c.8, a.3) and as such had been
the custom for a great length of time in many fairs and markets in Ireland, does
such length of time create a custom authorising the owners of such fairs and
markets to charge the toll on the cattle coming in before the sale thereof,
notwithstanding said Act of 4 Ann, c.8. And in case toll be not payable before
sale, what redress has the owner when illegally charged with toll, and how is it
to be procured?

PEERAGE OF IRELAND
Since the Union, in January, 1801, twenty-four Peerages of Ireland have become absolutely extinct, exclusive of Peerages extinct under a superior title, but continued in an inferior honour. This is at the rate of an extinct Peerage annually. The late extinction occasioned by the death of Richard Phillips, Baron Milford, will enable his Majesty to create a new Peer of Ireland, this being the third Peerage that has failed since the late creation of the Barony of Downes. The extinction which enabled his Majesty to raise Lord Downes to the Peerage, were the Earl of Dublin (Duke of Kent) in 1820; James Cuff, Baron Tyrawley, in 1821; and John Preston, Baron Tara, in the same year. The peerages since extinct are- Thomas Jaines Warren Bulkeley, Viscount Bulkeley, in 1822-Sylvester Douglas, Baron Glenbervie, in 1823; - Richard Phillips, Baron Milford, in the same year. There are, of course, many aspirants to the vacant dignity; among many other names is mentioned that of his Excellency Caron Bloomfield (the Ambassador to the Court of Sweden) who is said to have a promise from the highest quarter; Count de Salis, heir of Viscount Fane, is also spoken of. Mr. Stuart Villiers, heir of Viscount Fane, is also spoken of. Mr. Stuart Villiers, heir of Lord Grandison, and Lady Elizabeth Baker, are said to be among the candidates for the vacant Coronet.

THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
Galway, Monday, December 29, 1823
The Leinster Journal says, an investigation into the conduct of the Police on the last fair night at Freshford, was held yesterday at that place, but the results have not yet reached us. We really do not understand this way of administering Justice in Ireland." Had Bayly wantonly stabbed Dickson, our friend, Mr. St. George, would have instantly, on the complaint being made to him, sent the culprit off to the county gaol, on a capital charge under Lord Ellenborough's Act. Why, then, is the Police serjeant suffered to go at large who is charged with wantonly stabbing a young man in his mother's house? Is there one law for the people and another for the police? Verity, there is not, although the recent cases of serjeants Yeates and Dickson, and others that we could name, cannot fail to leave that impression on the minds of the uninformed. The law says "justice shall be administered equally and impartially to all." But there are Magistrates who set this legal maxim at naught. To such conduct, the unlawful acts of the people may generally be traced. It must inevitably create and nurture disaffection among the ignorant. Magistrates who know their duty, who really love their country, and wish to see it tranquil and prosperous, will also love justice, and administer it equally without fear, favour, or affection.
