The Limerick Chronicle, 13 July 1786
   We are assured by a gentleman just returned from Philadelphia, that the United States are scrupulously watchful in preventing Night Houses ; and as some Irish emigrants have commenced that dangerous establishment there, an edict has been published, subjecting all housekeepers embarking in that business to the severest penalties that Congress can inflict. For say the American legislators, youth is thereby initiated into all the mysteries of profligate vice ; servants pillage their masters, and the unthinking masters themselves too often bring bankruptcies on their families by frequenting these houses of infernal notoriety! — What a salutary example to this country where these dwellings are become so numerous?

   A post Chaise and able Horses, will set out from John Halloran's, outside Thomond-gate, for Dublin, any time until Thursday next.
   Married. Yesterday, Mr. Philip Parker, Watchmaker, to the very agreeable Miss Jones, daughter to the late Lieutenant Chas. Jones, of the 46th Regiment.
   Died last Sunday night, at Newpark, in this County, deservedly lamented, Mrs. Holmes, wife of Philip Holmes, Esq.

   Port-News, July 10. Arrived the Sparrow, Howard, Dartmouth, oil.—Sailed the Jane, Hughes, Dublin, oat-meal and raw-hides.

   Mr. Hill acknowledges the receit [sic] of two pounds, sterl. from Mr. Philip Walsh, stamp officer, for the use of the House of Industry, being part of two fines he received for unstamped newspapers.
