In a recent publication we notice the serious accident that occurred to two labourers, named Walsh and Loughnane, by falling into a Mash Keive at Madeira Island Brewery, in which they were dreadfully scalded. Although they survived the accident for several days, we regret to learn that both unfortunate sufferers died last week, notwithstanding the unremitting care and medical skill and attention of Doctor Blake of the dispensary.
ECONOMIST- Michael Kelly, Esq. of Myrehill, in the County of Galway, has refused £150 for a colt loa? by Economist, out of sister to Thunip. Economist is the property of Parsons Persse, Esq. and is at present at Newmarket, in England.
The Rev. B.J. Roche, P.P., took the pledge of temperance from the Rev. Mr. Mathew last week, in the West Chapel of this town.
Tuam Quarter Sessions commenced on Monday, before W.D. Freeman, Esq., assistant Barrister, where there were 36 persons registered, the tenants of Major Kirwan, Castlebacket, and Wm. M'Dermott, Esq., Barrister.
Emigration to Australia- On Saturday, at two o'clock, the Jupiter steam-vessel conveyed over 140 persons to Plymouth, who proposed to embark from that seaport, in the fine new ship Lord Western, for Sydney and Port Philip. The emigrants, male and female, were a fine healthy class of people-those designed for agricultural pursuits particularly so. The women, who were all young and strong, and some of them exceedingly well looking, appeared to outnumber the male emigrants. The entire, among whom were only a few children, were comfortably clothed, and seemed properly equipped in every respect for the voyage. Mr. Besnard, jun., proceeded with the emigrants to Plymouth. The Lord Western registers 530 tons.--Cork Paper

ATTEMPT AT MURDER IN DUBLIN CASTLE.
James Tracy was placed at the bar,
charged with that he, on the 21st day of May last, did willfully, maliciously,
unlawfully and feloniously assault one Susan Lloyd, and cut and wound here with
a razor, with intent to murder her. He was also charged in another count with

The 64th Depot has suffered more by desertion than any other in Ireland.
| The body of an unfortunate
man named Walsh, from Ship-street, Dublin, who left his house in a state of
derangement, was taken out of the Canal, on Sunday evening. We understand the
has left a wife and six children to deplore his untimely end.
SISTERS OF MERCY
This most valuable Institution lately established her has already commenced its hallowed work concerning the sick and the poor. In addition to the ladies who accompanied the venerable foundress of the order, Mrs. M'Auley, from Biggot-st, Dublin, to Galway, we learn that three other ladies have last week gone through the ceremony of reception: and it is with an ordinary feelings of admiration we announce that the second daughter of Walter Joyce, Esq., of Merview, has entered the Convent of Mercy, on last Thursday, to devote herself to that Heavenly Institute.
A parcel containing 1500l. in bills and specie given by Mr. Mullins, manager of the Tuam branch of the National Bank, to Mark. J. Blake, Esq. to be put into the Galway branch has been some time missing, and it must be gratifying to learn that the robber has been discovered- he was a servant named Lane, in Mr. Blake's employment at the time, and to him the conveyance of a carpet-bag containing the parcel to the Mail Coach office was entrusted. The bills though lost were paid, and the bank was but minus by the transaction 500l; and finally, in gold, notes and value 200l were found with Lane's wife, the day Father Mathew arrived at Ahaseragh. Lane has absconded and is now in America.

| Margaret Shea was tried at
Limerick quarter sessions for stealing articles of household furniture from the
residence of Mr. Henry Buck, civil engineer. The woman lived as servant in the
house, and occasionally found means to convey away spoons, cloths, &c. some
of which were discovered in her box by Serjeant Riedy, and identified by Mrs.
Buck as her husband's property. To be transported for seven years.
Adams v. Gerrard, was tried in the Court Exchequer, an action for services as agent to the Limerick marble company, and wharfage of shipment from the Ballysimon quarries. Mr. Staunton and Mr. Hardy, were examined on the trial. Verdict for plaintiff, 1101.
EDUCATION IN LOUGHREA
The town of Loughrea has been for a long period much in want of a respectable Seminary for the education of youth; and as an establishment so very essential has been recently opened by Mr. Michael Winter, whose talent and literary attainments render him in every respect capable of conducting with credit to himself, and satisfaction to the surrounding gentry of that neighbourhood so laborious and arduous an undertaking. Mr. Winter's School is under the patronage and auspices of the venerable and exemplary Catholic Prelate of the Diocese, the Right Rev. Dr. Coen, and we wish it may prosper, and meet with the liberal support of the public.
ST. NICHOLAS'S CHURCH
By the recent demise of the much respected and lamented Rev. Henry Morgan, one of the Protestant Vicars of St. Nicholas's Church, in this town, a vacancy has occurred, and we have many gentlemen of different religious persuasions express an anxious desire that the Rev. Robert H.E. Maunsell would be elected as his successor. In this feeling so generally entertained by our fellow-citizens we perfectly concur-it is a tribute of respect to which the gentleman is well entitled, from the high and exalted position he at present holds amongst us, when, by public improvements and personal observation, he might contribute largely to the advancement and prosperity of the town. In the early battles fought for Galway's freedom and independence we recollect how ardently and enthusiastically his excellent and respected father, the late Counsellor Maunsell, enrolled himself amongst the patriots of that day in opposing Corporation influence and corruption in Galway. For many reasons connected with the welfare of Galway, we hope Mr. Maunsell will be elected Mr. Morgan's successor.
Two vacancies are caused amongst the Galway Harbour Commissioners by the recent deaths of the late Robert [name blacked out], Esq. and E. M'Donnell, Esq., and a day will be fixed early in the evening month, for electing two Commissioners to serve in their place. We understand there are no less that six candidates for the vacant offices, namely, the Rev. Edward Eyre, Martin J. Blake, Esq., Thomas Burke, Esq., Menlo' Castle, Robert D. Persse, Esq., Constantine Sloper, Esq. and Randall M'Donnell, Esq. We do not want to detract from the merit of the respectable candidates, on the contrary, we think them eligible to fill such responsible situations; but in our anxiety to consult the best interests of the town we have no hesitation in recommending the claims and pretensions of the Rev. Mr. Eyre, to the favourable consideration of those invested with the power of reflecting. This gentleman succeeds to the large property and fortune of the late Robert Hedges Eyre, Esq. in this town, who was a Commissioner and we think prudence, good taste, and the position he is destined to hold amongst us, as an extensive landed proprietor should, and will suggest the propriety of electing him. Mr. Blake as one of the members of the Town, we think has a strong claim upon the people, which we have no doubt will be admitted by all parties; but as we have every confidence in the good sense and discriminating judgment of the Commissioners, we are satisfied their selections and appointments will afford public satisfaction.
|The Days of Yore- Forty years ago, young
ladies of the first respectability learned music, but it was the humming of the
spinning-wheel, and learned the necessary steps of dancing following it. Their
piano forte was a loom; their parasol, a broom; and their novels, a bible.
Poor Laws- On Monday last there was an extraordinary meeting of the
Tuam Union, convened for the purpose of borrowing the necessary sum for building
the poor house. There being none of the chairmen present, John F. Browne, Esq.
was selected to preside. There was a meeting of the Valuation Committee on
The several Tenants residing on my
property, situate at Galway, are hereby cautioned against paying their Rents to
any person or persons without my receipt, otherwise they will have to pay again.
On Monday last, at the Dominican Nunnery, in this town, Miss Jane Nolan, youngest daughter of Patrick Nolan, Esq.- This pious and exemplary Lady took the veil in the year 1815 as one of the Sisters of the above community, and devoted her whole life to the service of her Creator, and the performance of all those acts of charity and benevolence, which her tender feelings and sympathy for the poor and destitute were sure to suggest. With a generous and humane heart, an amiable and conciliating disposition and affability of manners peculiarly calculated to endear her to her friends and acquaintances, she was universally beloved and esteemed by all who enjoyed the pleasure of her society; and her death is a source of deep regret. Miss Nolan was the younger of three sisters, who embraced religion in the Dominican Nunnery, and was the last survivour of them. After solemn High Mass this day at the West Convent, the remains of this most estimable and lamented Lady were deposited in the family vault in that Cemetery.
THE ERREW MONASTERY
It affords us much pleasure in announcing that the first stone of this Monastery, intended for the dissemination of a sound religious instruction among the poor children, will be laid on next Tuesday week, the 21st instant, by His Grace the Archbishop of Tuam. The Bishop of Killala will also take part in the ceremonies, and a large number of the Clergy are expected to attend. We have this early notification that those who are kindly disposed towards the establishment of Monastic Institutions in the County may make the necessary arrangements for being present on this interesting occasion, and we feel that we would be acting unfairly, did we not tender our word of praise to the celebrated historian of Galway, James Hardiman, Esq. for his liberal donation of ten acres of land, with a lease for ever, on his estate at Errew, for his monastery.--Mayo Telegraph.
THE CASTLE OF AUGHNANURE,
Not many years since there was an
extensive district in the west of Ireland, which, except to those inhabiting in
it, was a sort of terra incognita,or unknown region, to the people of the
British Isles. It had no carriage roads, no ins or hotels, no towns; and the
only notion popularly formed of it was that of an inhospitable desert- the
refugium of malefactors and Irish savages, who set all law at defiance, and into
which it would be and act of madness for any civilized man to venture. This
district was popularly called the kindom of Connemara, a name applied to that
great tract extending from the town of Galway to the Killery harbour, bounded on
the east by the great lakes called Lough Corrib and Lough Mask, and on the west
by the Atlantic Ocean, and comprising within the baronies of Moycullen and
Ballinahinch, and half barony of Ross. It is not an unknown region now. It
has two prosperous towns and several villages, good roads, and comfortable
hotels. "The Queen's writ will run in it;" and the inhabitants are
remarkable for their intelligence, quietness, honesty, hospitality, and many
other good qualities; and in the summer months it is the favourite resort of the
artist, antiquary, geologist, botanist, ornithologist, sportsman-in short, of
pleasure tourists of all descriptions, and from every quarter of the British
empire; for it is a district singularly rich in its attractions to all those who
look for health and pleasure from a summer's ramble, combined with excitable
occupations. Of its picturesque beauties much has already been written. They
have been sketched by the practised hand of Inglis, and by the more graphic
pencil of Caesar Otway; but its hitory and more important antiquities have been
as yet but little noticed and consequently, generally passed by without
attracting the attention or exciting any interest in the mind of the traveller.
We propose to ourselves to supply this defect to some extent, and have
consequently chosen as the subject of our first illustration an ancient castle,
of which we have presented our readers with a view, and which is the most
picturesque, and indeed important remain of antiquity within the district which
we have described.

DEPOPULATION SYSTEM- Upwards of 500 families were ejected at the late session; of Loughrea, off the property of Rahara, which on the demise of Mr. Blake fell into the hands of a person of the name of Knox. Many others on the property of Lord Gort were also ejected.
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
The Catholic Clergy of the Archdiocese
of Dublin, headed by their venerated Archbishop, have entered on their annual
spiritual retreat for one week.
ST. JARLATH'S COLLEGE
This excellent and admirably conducted institution is rapidly progressing in public estimation, and we have no doubt that ere long it will rank among the first Roman Catholic Colleges in Ireland. The annual public examinations were held in the last week of June and the correct answering- the intelligence-the religious, scientific & classic knowledge displayed by the young pupils, elicited the warmest approbations and general admirations of all those who were present. A list of the gentlemen who obtained premiums and distinctions appears in our advertising columns.
A few days since, a fine boy of the name of Walsh, about 13 years of age, and an apprentice to a Boatsbuilder, fell from a scaffolding and having violently come in contact with the end of a plank, received some severe injuries in the abdomen, of which he died a few hours afterwards.
We are happy to perceive by an article in the Dublin Evening Mail, that Thomas Whistler, Esq., son of our late much respected and eminent fellow townsman, (Thomas L. Whistler, Esq., M.D.) after being duly and solemnly examined by the Medical Profession of Trinity College & Sir Patrick Dun's Hospital, obtained degrees qualifying him to practice as a physician. This talented young gentleman has prosecuted his studies with great industry and from the perfect knowledge he has acquired of his profession, he promises to be a great acquisition to the medical department of this town.
A GOOD EXAMPLE
We have been informed that on the servants of Robert Power, Esq., Solicitor, taking the pledge, he gave the sum it annually cost him for malt for their use in addition to their wages. We mention the circumstance not only as being highly creditable to Mr. Power, but as an example worthy of imitation.

THE IRISH IN 1644
We are indebted to our
talented countryman, Crofton Croker, for the translation of the tour of a French
traveller, M. De la Boulfaye Le Gouz, in Ireland in 1644. Its author journeyed
from Dublin to the principal cities and towns in Ireland, and sketches what he
saw in a very amusing manner. The value of the publication, however, is greatly
enhanced by the interesting notes appended to it by Mr. Croker and some of his
friends; and as the work is less known in Ireland than it should be, we extract
from it the Frenchman's sketch of the habits and customs of the Irish people as
they prevailed two centuries back, in the belief that they will be acceptable to
Outrage- A House Demolished and a Horse Killed.- At ten o'clock on Wednesday night last, an armed party attacked the house of a respectable farmer named John Finn, and demolished the doors and windows. Having effected their purpose at the dwelling-house, they next proceeded to the stable, and killed, by repeated stabs of a sharp instrument, the beautiful sire Rainbow, and animal of great value and well known in this county. They next tore down a portion of the out-offices, after which they retired, in obedience to the command of a leader, and it is supposed re-crossed the mountain. Finn was in attendance at the Wexford sessions when these outrages were committed on his property.--Carlow Sentinel
On Friday, the 10th
instant, the Lord Bishop of Clogher consecrated the church recently erected and
endowed by the late General Archdall, in the parish of Derryvullan, county
Fermanagh.- His Lordship was attended by the archdeacon of the diocese; his
domestic chaplain, the Rev. R. L. Tottenham; and Dr. Robinson, of Armagh- and
was met, at the entrance to the church, by a considerable number of the
neighbouring clergy who assisted in the solemn service appointed for the
occasion. A most appropriate and impressive sermon was preached by the Rev. Dr.
Millar, the talented rector of the parish.
The Royal Artillery at
Ceylon were attacked by severe cholera. The heat of the climate was almost
We insert the subjoined
letter from Robert D. Persse, Esq., in which he declines coming forward on the
present occasion, as Candidate for a Harbour Commissioner, & very creditably
to his feelings, ??? his reasons for not wishing to interfere with the claims of
M.J. Blake, Esq., M.P., or the Rev. Mr. Maunsell. The pretensions of these
gentlemen are strong and admitted, and we have no doubt they will be unanimously
elected. Another vacancy, however, has since occurred by the demise of the Rev.
Sir Francis Lynch Blosse, and as Mr. Persse is in every way eligible, we have no
doubt he will be elected as the successor of that deceased gentleman.
Mr. Burke, the Editor of the Galway Advertiser, was assailed on Wednesday, and this day, as he was passing thro' town, by a crowd of persons, and his personal safety would have been most probably endangered had he not taken shelter at the police barrack. We must deprecate any attempt at violence or outrage, and the persons engaged in such proceedings act very imprudently, for they will only subject themselves to punishment, and be visited with the inflictions of the law. We hear Mr. Burke has indicted some of the parties who attacked him.
POLICE INVESTIGATION AT SPIDDLE-REV. MR. FAHY
We give today a most
singular ave, a most positive refutation of a Tory lie- a lie refuted by a full
bench of magistrates, and given up in the face of the gentry of this county. our
readers recollect the Packet of the 18th of June, in which appeared a
letter from Galway, stating that the Rev. Mr. Fahy, parish priest of Spiddle,
had on Sunday, the 7th of the same month a guard of police and others on the
Chapel entreating money from his parishioners, driving them away from the door,
and otherwise maltreating his flock. This letter was not forward with the usual
fulminations of the Packet; and what was more strange, the Editor
concluded his remarks with a flourish of trumpets stating that his correspondent
was a writer, "who would not pen a word on light grounds, or at all without
knowing the truth."
Mr. O'Flaherty- We should be sorry to
erect ourselves into a tribunal to examine into Mr. Fahy's conduct.
Names of the Subscribers to the Galway Relief Fund
In returning thanks on the part of the
indigent for the above sums, they beg to state that the demand upon them for
relief have encreased in consequence of the late bad weather which has retarded
the ripening of the potato crop, they therefore earnestly request that the
person who have kindly allowed their names to be put down as Subscribers will
send in the amount of their subscriptions without delay. They also beg to state
that the amount of the fund now at their disposal is quite inadequate to meet
the pressure caused by the advanced price of provisions they therefore trust
that those persons who have not yet had an opportunity of contributing will come
forward and assist the object which the Committee have in view-namely, to keep
down the price of provisions until the new crop comes, which they trust with the
blessing of Divine Providence, will not exceed another fortnight.

daughter of James Hanly Esq. of Ennislodge, in the county of Galway.
On Tuesday morning last, of fever, the lady of John Kilkelly Esq. of Monfort. The sudden demise of this amiable lady had been the source of deep regret to a numerous and highly respectable connexion, to whom her many excellent qualities had endeared her.
It is not true that Major Orange, of
the 67th was severely reprimanded for allowing the band of his depot to play at

only without censure or reprimand, but with permission.--Limerick Chronicle.

On Monday last the 20th instant, a Draft marched to Oranmore en route to Cork to join the Service Companies in Canada, consisting of 1 Captain, 1 Lieutenant, 1 Ensign, 2 Serjeants, and 69 rank and file. The Officers names are Captain Hon. A.G. Stuart; Lieut. Locke and Ensign Dawson. The 67th Regt. now only want ONE man to complete to 830 Bayonets.

MR. O'CONNELL-REPEAL OF THE UNION
There was a general demonstration in favour of the Repeal of the Union on the green of Castlebar on Sunday last, there were at least 40,000 persons present. Sir Samuel O'Malley, Bart. in the chair; several gentlemen addressed the meeting. The powerful and unanswerable speech of the Liberator was received amid cheers that were echoed through the town and neighbourhood of Castlebar, and the might multitude shouted "Repeal of the Union" while they were peaceably disbursed.
PROGRESS OF TEMPERANCE
The Very Rev. T. Mathew arrived at Castlebar late on Saturday night. On Sunday he preached a delightful sermon at the Parish Chapel-there was a grand high mass on the occasion. The Very Rev. Dean Burke, celebrant; Rev. Mr. Roche, P.P. of Galway, deacon; Rev. Mr. Prendergast, sub-deacon. The Apostle of Temperance, immediately after the sermon, administered the pledge in the chapel yard; and continued on Monday and Tuesday engaged in the same laudable work; on the lowest calculation the pledge was administered to 73,000 on this occasion, among those to whom it was administered, there were several respectable ladies and gentlemen, and the following: Rev. J. Morris, P.P.; Rev. Richard Walsh, P.P.; Rev. P. Burke, O.S.F.; Rev. T. Keveny, C.C.; Rev. Mr. Higgins, C.C.; Rev. Mr. Cogglan, P.P.; Rev. Mr. M'Cullagh, C.C.; Rev. Mr. O'Dowd, C.C.; Rev.

PETTY SESSIONS - July 24.
Magistrates on the Bench, John Ireland
(Chairman) Mark Lynch, and Sylvanus Jones, Esqrs.
Mr. Thomas Cronolly against Mr. James P. Burke
Mr. Thomas Cronolly, sworn and examined
by Mr. Murphy-Witness said that his name having appeared to the requisition for
convening a public meeting, with a view of repelling the misrepresentations of
the Galway Advertiser-as he was passing the office of that paper on
Wednesday, an hour or two prior to the meeting, Mr. Burke, the reputed editor,
came out and said, "Cronolly, why aren't you at the meeting?"
"Why, said I, what is that to you." Because, says Burke, I was to have
some muscles and potatoes for you when you come back." "Was it muscles
that you got when you were in parson O'Rourke's kitchen," says I,
(laughter) "I'll make," says he, "some of those who signed the
requisition pay for it, and shew them up in the Advertiser."
Alluding disrespectfully at the same time to some of my most intimate friends, I
then said, "sure they do not live in apostacy at any rate like you"
(laughter) "You are a renegade, and I am credibly informed you are a
_____________ also" (much laughter.) I said more your worships' which I
will tell the Court if Mr. Burke likes; he (Burke) then came and took me by the
cravat in this manner (giving his head a turn) and squeezed me so severely that
I was disabled at once and forced to cry out; Mrs. Conolly then threw
herself between us, and Mr. Malone pulled Burke's hand out of his hold; I should
tell your worship's that I had been on friendly terms with Mrs. Conolly and
family before even Burke had any thing to do with the establishment; I was in
the habit of giving them the harbour news; and when Burke came there first I
went bail for his lodgings; and after all he would try and irritate my feelings
by squeezing to his lips and kissing an orange lily saying "how I love
you," which he did a few days ago. Burke, (sneeringly) aye, and I would
kiss it now too.
SECOND DAYS ALLEGED RIOTING
John Waldron, Edward Waldron, and John
Swift were charged with rioting and shouting at Mr. James P. Burke.
On the morning of Saturday, the Brig John, of Youghall, Joynt, master, struck on the west reef of rocks close to the Light House, it was blowing a strong gale of wind from the westward, with a thick fog at the time, and on being perceived from shore the Master Pilot put off, & succeeded in boarding her through the breakers, and with the assistance of Lieut. Hooper & the Coast Guards and the master and crew of the Lesly Alexander, now in port, got the Brig off the shore, and had the good success to get her as far as Nimmo Pier, when she sunk close along side the Quay. The exertions of Mr. O'Halloran and Lieutenant Hooper and Charles Harris were beyond all praise and it is hoped they will be rewarded for their prompt exertions.
In aid of this Institution will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 18th and 19th of August.
Honorable Mrs. Mullins, Knockbane,
C. Lemon, Esq. of __________, near Eyrecourt, in this county this day called at our office to correct a misstatement which has been circulated through the Irish press. We copied a paragraph from some of our contemporaries stating that this gentleman was fined 7l. 10s. at Petty Sessions, for having permitted a young lad, his servant, to set a dog at a poor person demanding alms. Mr. Lemon feels much aggrieved and indignant that such an unfounded statement should have been circulated as no such fine had been imposed, and he desires us to state that he discharged the boy on hearing that he was guilty of such conduct. We had not the pleasure of a previous knowledge of Mr. Lemon, and we appreciate his feelings and his anxious desire to vindicate himself from an imputation of being guilty of such conduct. We have, however, perfectly satisfied Mr. Lemon, that the misstatement did not originate with us, and that the paragraph copied was culled from another paper.
The very excellent and popular High-Sheriff of the County, Lord Ashtown, arrived in town, on Tuesday last, and proceeded to the Court House where Patrick Fitzpatrick, Esq., Clerk of the Crown, swore the following respectable grand jury before his lordship:-
