SALARIES OF WORKHOUSE OFFICERS
At the meeting of the Guardians of this Union on next Saturday the reduction of the medical officer's salary will be re-considered, agreeable to a notice of motion to that effect. The Poor Law Commissioners have as yet, we believe, expressed their opinion only in reference to the schoolmaster, whose salary they do not consider too high for the office he holds, and the chaplains, who are appointed under their zeal, and the reduction of whose salary must have the sanction of the Commissioners, which they are not yet prepared to give. We have already given our opinion of the wholesale reductions made by the Guardians on last Saturday week. We shall now confine ourselves to a few observations in reference to the Doctor's salary. Here we have a gentleman, whose profession and duties entitle him to the highest salary given to a Workhouse staff, placed below at least two other officers in the scale of remuneration; for it cannot be denied that £80 per annum, without rations and apartments, is comparatively small. We do not mean by this to insinuate that the salaries of other officers are too high. On the contrary, we believe they are not sufficiently paid for their arduous and responsible duties. But the Doctor's salary being the first to be re-considered by the Board, we wish to lay before the Guardians what they appear to have hastily overlooked in their economizing zeal. With some of the members of the Ballina Board, talent, a liberal education, and the expense and assiduity required in a preparation for the medical profession are of no weight; they rather appear to compare these things with the callings of the trader or working mechanic, and accordingly set a value upon them. However, the portion of the Ballina Board, we are happy to think, is in the minority, and a second deliberation on the subject of reduction of salaries will be more favourable than the first gone through in haste. Furthermore, it must be taken into consideration that Doctor Devlin has been attending daily, for the last six months, an average number of patients in the Workhouse Infirmary of upwards of 550, and latterly he has the care of more than 70 fever patients. In justice his salary should have been raised and not brought down to the paltry sum of £80 a year; and we trust that the Guardians will at their next meeting adopt a proper remuneration for their medical officer, whose entire time, to the exclusion of his private practice, is occupied in their service.
DEATH OF MRS. ORME OF OWENMORE
It is with unfeigned regret that we have this day to record the demise of this truly amiable, benevolent, and deeply lamented lady. The melancholy event, caused by an attack of fever, took place on Friday last at Owenmore, the residence of her husband, William Orme, Esq. Mrs. Orme was in the prime of life, being in her 35th year She has left a large and highly respected circle of relatives and acquaintances to deplore her early removal from this world of troubles and disappointments. Her remains were conveyed to the family burying ground, Moygownagh, on Monday, attended by a vast concourse of the respectability of this neighbourhood.
DEATH OF THE REV. MR. MORRIS, P.P.
With unfeigned regret we have to announce the death of this gentleman, which melancholy event took place at Westport on Saturday last. The deceased was remarkable for his urbanity of manner, gentlemanlike demeanour and an absence of bigotry, which in too many instances distinguishes his contemporaries. He devoted his time in Christian efforts to sow peace and good will amongst his parishioners.-- Mayo Constitution.
CURIOUS DISCOVERY - An ancient mill has within a few days been discovered on the townland of Shannacashel, parish of Kilmichael, about five miles north east of Dunmanway. The massive frame of work of solid oak is in good preservation. It bears the marks of having been consumed by fire. The remains of the upper and lower milstones are to be seen, one not much injured and the other greatly fractured by the action of fire. A curious spade or shovel was found composed entirely of wood, but it was destroyed by an ignorant countryman. The old men in the neighbourhood state that from eight to ten feet of that have been cut over its present position. It is well worthy the attention of the society of Antiquarians.
MEETING OF GUARDIANS
BALLINA UNION - This
usual weekly meeting of the Guardians of this Union was held on Saturday
in the Board Room of the Workhouse, F. Howley, Esq., in the chair. The
other Guardians present were - Captain John Knox, Mr. Paget, Mr. A. Knox,
Mr. J. Gore, Mr. H. Joynt, Mr. Malley, Major J.F. Knox, Mr. Jones, Captain
Atkinson, Mr. M'Culloch, Mr. J. Knox, and Mr. Wills.- Captain Hamilton,
Inspector, was in attendance.
- Patrick Healy, a carpenter, was killed at Cork on Sunday in a wrestling match.
- We regret to learn that a horrid murder was perpetrated in one of the streets of our city yesterday morning. A man named Martin Regan, about 22 years of age, a native of Limerick county, Ireland, and who had worked as a labourer in and about this city during the past 12 months, was stabbed in the breast so as to cause his death in a few minutes.-- Washington Republic.
- The landed property of the late Mr. Dillon Browne, M.P. for Mayo, is to be sold under the Encumbered Estates court in November term.
THE IRISH LANDLORD - The Duke of Devonshire is the present proprietor of nearly the whole town of Bandon, county of Cork, and of an immense tract of the county adjoining. His grace is, on the whole, one of the best specimens of the class of absentee landlords. An incident, illustrating his disposition to do justice, where he really sees his way in his dealing with his tenantry, was related to us by a person residing in the neighbourhood: - "A tenant of the duke's named Wilson, received notice from one of the duke's agents to quit at the approaching expiry of his lease. Wilson, who had always paid his rent with punctuality, solicited a renewal, at whatever rent could be fairly expected from a stranger. The agent, however, had obtained the farm either for himself, or for some favourite of his. Wilson's entreaties were fruitless, and when he found it was impossible to soften the obduracy of the man in office, he said to him: - 'Well, sir, as I can't have my farm, will your honor have the goodness, at any rate, to give me a character that may help me to get a farm somewhere else.' To this the agent assented with alacrity, as an easy mode of getting rid of Wilson's importunities. He gave him a flourishing character for honesty and agricultural intelligence. Wilson no sooner got hold of the document than he asked for London where, with great difficulty, he succeeded at last in getting access to the Duke. He stated his own past merits as a tenant, his claim to a preference at the same rent any solvent stranger would be willing to pay. The Duke readily admitted the justice of the claim.' Now, my lord duke,' continued Wilson, tendering to his grace the writing certificate of character Mr. ____ had given him, 'will you just look at what your agent himself says about me, and see whether I am the sort of man he ought to dispossess.' The Duke read the paper and expressed the great surprise that his agent should contemplate the courting of such a valuable tenant. ' I'll tell you how we will meet him,' continued his grace; ' he expects you to give up possession on the next term day, now; when he comes to receive it, instead of giving him your farm, give him a letter I shall put into your hands, strictly commanding him to give you a renewal. Meanwhile be quite silent on the subject, in order that Mr. _____ may enjoy all the pleasure of surprise.' Wilson kept his council until farm day, and we may easily imagine the chagrin of the discomfited agent when, instead of the coveted farm he received the duke's letter confirming the possession of the tenant."- Burke's Anecdotes of the Aristocracy.
EMIGRANTS FROM WORKHOUSES
The following communication from
the Poor Law Commissioners was read t the meeting of the Guardians of this
Union, on Saturday and affords a gratifying proof of the beneficial effects
of the judicious training of young minds. It is to be regretted that so many
intelligent young persons as there are at present in our Workhouses cannot
be rendered more useful members of society than caged up in those places,
where after a certain age, they will lose their energies, and become
permanently indisposed and unfitted for a better change:
At Birch Grove, Roscrea, on the
27th inst., the Lady of George Birch, Esq., of a son and heir.
On Thursday last, in the parish Church, Ardnaree, by the Rev. Arthur Moore, Mr. James Mathews to Miss Margaret Shannon, both of this town.
On Sunday, the Rev. Mr. Fitzpatrick, P.P., of Montrath, took occasion to denounce from the altar at mass, the diabolical and fiendish attempt made by the murdering villain who threw the stone from one of the bridges upon the steam-coach. He said he had not language to depict the atrocity of the act- that the curse of God would be upon such a wretch, and implored of any of his flock who should come to the knowledge of the perpetrator, to have him at once given up to the authorities, as they were strictly bound to do.
Mr. Ousley Higgins, M.P. for Mayo, has subscribed £3 to the Tenant League council, which now proposes to raise a capital of £10,000 by voluntary assessment of one penny in the pound by poor law rating.
Hobart Town journals to the 20th, April advise the arrival of the convict ship Neptune, with John Mitchell, and convicts, rejected by the Cape settlers. A demonstration was about to be made against convict importings. Mr. Smith O'Brien's health was not very favourable, and his medical attendant had suggested a change. He is consequently removed from Maria Island to Port Arthur to the visits of Dr. Brock, the visiting magistrate, the superintendent, officer, and sergeant of the guard.
The Isle of Man fishermen have beat off the Scotch boats which went in quest of herrings.
Patrick Forbes was hanged at Newcastle on Saturday, for the murder of his wife.
The tenantry of W. Sharman Crawford, M.P., have ordered a breakfast service of plate at Belfast to present his son, in testimony of their satisfaction of his conduct as land agent for his father.
The merchants and other inhabitants of Galway have presented a handsome gold watch to Mr. Samuel Woods, one of the guards of the Dublin and Galway mail, as a testimonial of his long tried services.
At Roscrea petty sessions, Captain Bernard, of Castle Bernard, on behalf of a tenant of his, ably defended him against a charge for poor rates, exposing the negligence and partiality of a collector who was ordered to attend before the board of Guardians, with a view to his removal or to pay the arrear claimed.
PUBLIC WORKS IN PROGRESS
The Poor Law Commissioners are erecting the following union workhouses, according to drawings furnished by their architect, Mr. George Wilkinson, viz., Killedysart, county Clare, to cost £5000; Clonakilty, £5000; also one at Dromore West, cost £4,500; and at Newport, Mayo, £5,100. The Museum of Irish Industry, Stephen's-green, Dublin, is nearly finished; it has been erected on the site of the late Lord Manner's mansion and embraces the two adjacent houses; Mr. George Papworth is the architect. The Board of Superintendence, Kilkenny, are erecting large additions to their gaol, for the accommodation of an increased number of inmates. The Board of Superintendence, Newry, are adding considerably to their bridewell. The cost will be £1,300. The Board of Public Works are erecting a wing building and adding an additional story to part of the Lunatic Asylum, Granggorgeman-lane, for reception of a large number of inmates. There is a new courthouse meeting in Newtownards, from the designs of Mr. Caldbeck, to whom the premium of 25l. was awarded for same. The cost will be 2,000l.
Our harvest prospects in
this neighbourhood are at present rather cheering, so far as the state of
the crops is concerned. The potato crop on which the greater share of
thought is now bestowed, is in a better condition generally than our fears a
few weeks ago had apprehended. It was not to be supposed that the entire
crop would have escaped the blight of former years, but farmers were not
prepared for so many instances of total failure as have occurred in
different localities. The disease, however, appears to have received a
check, and there does not exist much alarm as to the safety of that portion
of the crop now in a sound state. Should the blight not progress much
further, the supply will be, at least, an average of former years, though
some individuals have suffered a considerable loss. Should the blight be in
an equal proportion to that of 1846-'47, the consequence must be three-fold
more disastrous than in those years, the substance of the people being
gradually wasting away through the past years of great distress. The cereal
crop, so far as they have been cultivated, are luxuriant, and the reapers
are now busily at work in all directions. The late rains and cold weather
have done but little damage beyond retarding the ripening. The turnips,
planted more extensively and with a better system of culture than in former
years, are likewise doing well. The flax crop, we may say, is now entirely
pulled, and has not been so extensive since the days of the linen trade in
this country. This is the result of the flax-mill erected in the
neighbourhood of this town by the enterprising Messrs. Hay.
The Rev. Thomas Rooks has
resigned the curacy of Carnteel, patron the Archdeacon of Armagh; and has
been appointed to the curacy of Monkstown-patron, the Archdeacon of Kildare.
Rev. Daniel M'Coy, P.P., Glin, acquires £100 a year by the death of his
predecessor, Rev. D. O'Sullivan, to whom the above retired allowance was
made upon superannuation.
AN ENGLISH LANDLORD IN IRELAND
Lord Vaux of Harrowden
has been for some time residing on his estate in the county of Kilkenny,
where, it appears, he has been extending employment, in an improved system
of farm labour and exerting himself to better the condition of the humbler
classes. By one of the local journals the noble lord has been landed; by
another, his lordship has been taken to task for certain alleged
proceedings, having a tendency to reform the habits of the peasantry. In
consequence of an attack of this latter character, Lord Vaux has addressed
the following remarkable letter to the Kilkenny Journal:-
Ballina, Co. Mayo
Wednesday, September 11, 1850
Wm. Francis Ryan, Esq., of
Montefarrell, Edgworthstown, is appointed to the commission of the peace
for county of Longford.
SUICIDE OF A POLICEMAN - We deeply regret to have to announce another melancholy case of suicide occurring in this town. The unfortunate individual was a sub-constable of police, named Patrick Joseph John Walsh, a native of Birr, in the King's County, and for some time past a member of the constabulary force, stationed in Durham street. It appears that the rash act was committed in the barracks, about twelve o'clock, yesterday, the deceased discharging into his breast the contents of a gun loaded with ball. Drs. Read and Aickin were promptly in attendance, and extracted the ball, but otherwise their services were unavailing as the wretched man survived not more than half an hour. The deceased, who was about twenty years of age, entered the force in April, 1849. It was stated by Head Constable Henderson, and Sub-Inspector Wray, at an inquest held on the body, that he was frequently found by his companions in a desponding state of mind, and that when lately in the North Queen-street barracks, he had more than once threatened to destroy himself. The jury returned their verdict, "Suicide during temporary insanity." - Banner of Ulster.
The number of paupers in
Newcastle workhouse is 3,300 and only 6 on outdoor relief. The guardians
ordered the able-bodied women to be employed at the capstain mill, there
not being sufficient men in the house for that purpose. Average weekly
cost of each inmate, 10d.
DEATH OF JAMES WATSON, ESQ., of BROOKHILL - We deeply regret to state that this esteemed and respected gentleman died on Tuesday afternoon, at his residence, Brookhill. A more worthy and estimable individual than Mr. Watson we have seldom met, - as a good landlord, a kindly friend, a sterling and conscientious upholder of constitutional authority - his life is not often to be met with "in these degenerate days" and let people talk as they may of patriotism, we believe that, a truer or more disinterested, more thoroughly devoted to the real interests of Ireland, has rarely been seen. Mr. Watson departed this life, full of years and honour, being at the time of his decease, in the 87th year of his age.--Belfast Chronicle.
CORK RECORD COURT
Mary Maume, of Sunday's Well (formerly of Ballinoe, County Limerick,) plaintiff; Edmond de Cantillion, and Elizabeth, his wife, defendants.
This was a suit for the diet and
lodging of Mrs. De Cantillion before her marriage. - Defendant Elizabeth
was plaintiff's daughter, and married the defendant Edmond a short time
ago without her mother's consent. Plaintiff's son and daughter proved that
Elizabeth resided for eleven months with plaintiff.
The Royal Society for the Promotion and Improvement of the Growth of Flax monthly meeting was held at Belfast on Wednesday. A letter was read from Mr. Trench, agent of the Lansdowne estates in the County Kerry, in which he stated that he was not decided as to the propriety of erecting flax-scutching machinery, in consequence of the fresh failure of the potato crop, and also, that he thought flax should first be extensively cultivated there before machinery would be erected in its preparation. The committee considered Mr. Trench's views erroneous, as the reported failure of the potato crop afforded the strongest possible reason for attention being turned to other crops whose money value would replace that which was now as precarious, and the sale of which would provide for the purchase of a larger quantity of food than could be raised directly from the same breadth of land. The secretary mentioned that of late several individuals had come to Belfast from different parts of the south and west of Ireland to make inquiries into the details of flax culture and preparation.
EMIGRATION - On Friday morning upwards of fifty persons from the county Fermanagh, consisting of farmers and their families, all Protestants, with scarcely and exception, proceeded from this city by the early train to Belfast, on their way to the "land of the west." They were all in high spirits, and expressed the greatest satisfaction at exchanging a country where they are already looked upon as aliens, for one in which they will not be frowned upon on account of their religion, or the political opinions they conscientiously entertain.--Armagh Guardian.
Mr. Joliffe Tufnell, of the Royal College of Surgeons, and surgeon to the military prison, is selected surgeon of the city of Dublin Hospital.
The pastorship of the Presbyterian congregation at Fethard is vacant by the sudden death of the Rev. Robert Ferris, 25 years minister there.
Mr. Eneas M'Donnell, brother to M. M'Donnell, Esq. of Westport, has suggested to the Synod at Thurles the propriety of entering upon a full consideration and final settlement of the two principal controversies for several years past, namely, the participation of Irish Roman Catholic ecclastistics in political agitation, and the obligations to the Roman Catholic oath.
In Dublin, September 7, at 48 Upper Sackville-street, the lady of James Malley, Esq., of a son.
In Dublin, September 7, at Upper Baggot-street, aged 63 years, the Rev. Joseph Seymour, son of the late Rev. Charles Seymour, and vicar of Kilmovee, in this county. The deceased has left behind him a widow and long family to mourn over the loss of an affectionate father and good husband.
- Mr. Timothy O'Connor, mail guard, employed between Limerick and Galway, is ordered to England, and will be replaced by Mr. M. Fogarty; Mr. Edward Connell, mail guard between Dublin and Wexford, is removed to England and will be replaced by Mr. John Hatchell.

At Ballinrobe petty sessions on Monday, Mary Connelly and Nappy Durkan were fined, the former 20s., the other 50s. for assault on a scripture reader. Rev. Mr. Conway, R.C. Priest, paid the penalties and the offenders were discharged.
MAYOR OF SLIGO - We understand it is the intention of E.H. Verdon, Esq., proprietor of the Sligo Champion, to offer himself as a candidate for the civic chair for the Borough of Sligo for the ensuing year. We believe Mr. Verdon possesses the confidence of a large portion of his brother aldermen and councillors. Mr. Verdon is an active member of the Sligo board of guardians and his success is said to be almost certain.
By the regretted death of Captain Moore, 1st, or King's Dragoon Guards,

A gentleman yesterday presented the following for publication - "The true area of the Circle by geometrical solution without reference to its periphery, has been discovered by Garrett Rodney Fitzgerald, Esq., of Ballyneety, near this city. The result is very interesting, and a great desideratum to the scientific world.-- Limerick Chronicle.
SEA SERPENT IN KINSALE.
SIR - A few friends accompanied me on a boating excursion this day,
whose names are William Silk, John Hunt, George Williams, Henry Seymour,
and Edward Barry, and being off the Southern Islands, our attention was
directed by one of the party to an extraordinary appearance ahead of the
boat. Immediately all eyes were turned to see what it was, when to our
astonishment and fright the above monster of the deep was bearing down
on us. We were at once thrown into an awful fright, and thought it best
to retreat for shore. On our landing, Mr. W. Silk, who was armed with a
double-barreled gun, discharged both barrels at the monster, but without
effect. I need not describe his appearance as you are aware of it
before; but from inquiries from various boatmen, I am told he is off the
harbour the last three days.- I remain, Sir, yours,
|APPALLING MURDER AND
CAVAN, Sept. 10, 1850 -
This town and neighbourhood were thrown into the highest state of
excitement and alarm at an early hour yesterday, being the arrival of
several persons from the vicinity of Ballinagh, who rushed into Cavan with
the frightful intelligence that Dr. Creighton, lately come to reside near
Ballinagh, had just murdered one of the ladies of his house, and
immediately after put an end to his own existence. This information was
but too true. Doctor Creighton was a native of this county; he resided
near Cavan up to the period of his entering Trinity College, where he
graduated and took out the degree of Bachelor of Medicine. He commenced
his professional career in Townsend-street, Dublin, where he practiced
with considerable success; he subsequently changed his residence to either
No. 24 or 25 Great Brunswick-street.

- A special market for the sale of flax is about to be
established in Portadown, the centre of one of the best flax growing
districts in the North of Ireland.

September 3 in Desert-Martin Church, county Derry, by the Rev. J.S. Knox, rector of Maghera, and brother of the bride, the Rev. W.A. Ormsby, incumbent of St. Martin's, Norwich, to Helen Adelaide, youngest daughter of the late Hon. and Right Rev. William Knox, Lord Bishop of Derry.

Brevet-Major, J. Ward,
81st, has retired upon Captain's full pay, after 27 years serving.
On Saturday last, Meredith Thompson, Esq., Coroner in the County of Sligo, held an inquest at Ardnaree, on the body of a man named Laurence Gibbons. From the evidence adduced it appeared the deceased went to bed on Thursday night last in his usual good health. The following morning the persons with whom he lodged went to call him to breakfast. On knocking at his door, which was bolted on the inside, they received no answer, and then sent for Sergeant Phibbs and his party; who came and forced the door open, when they found Gibbons quite dead. Dr. Whittaker made a post mortem examination on the body, and ascertained that death was caused by disease of the heart. The jury unanimously found a verdict in accordance with the Doctor's evidence.
The erection of flax mills in the vicinity of this town, about two years since, by the enterprising Messrs. Hay, have considerably increased the cultivation of flax, while a great number of hands have been employed in its manufacture. Mr. Halliday is now busily engaged in preparing similar mills; and although the Messrs. Hay may be somewhat injured by this competition, yet, looking at it in a public light, it must be gratifying to find that such establishments are springing up as must ultimately prove beneficial to a country hitherto neglected and at present much in need of every little help that can be given it.
After the rains which fell on Wednesday and Thursday the harvest operations were briskly resumed and continued to the present under very favourable weather. Not a moment is to be lost, there being yet a large portion of grain standing, and plenty of work ready for the reapers. A few small parcels of new oats have been sold in this market at from 12s. to 13s. per barrel of 24 stone. We hear still fewer complaints about the potatoes, and there appears to be no great disposition to bringing them into town for sale, which would be the case were the disease progressing.
Mr. Scully, brother of F. Scully, Esq., M.P., for Tipperary, is appointed a Stipendary Magistrate. The M.P. has been a thick and thin Government voter this last session, and is now compensated. A great patriot entirely is Mr. Scully, M.P.--Mail.
CAPTURE OF JOSEPH ADY - Yesterday afternoon James Bradley, a most active officer connected with the Mansion-house, succeeded by stratagem, in capturing the notorious Joseph Ady. Bradley lodged his prisoner in the Giltspur-street Compter, on a warrant for 19l. 3s. for postage on upwards of 2,000 "returned" letters, the "property of the Postmaster General."
It is with regret that we announce the death of the Rt. Rev. Dr. Stopford, Lord Bishop of Meath. The melancholy event took place suddenly on Thursday last at Ardbraccan, his lordship's residence. The deceased prelate was elevated from the Archdeaconry of Armagh to the see of Meath, during the Viceroyalty of Earl de Grey. Dr. Stopford had been long labouring under disease of the heart. - His lordship was a member of the Privy Council in Ireland.
This notorious character has been trying his hand in the wilds of Erris. A gentleman residing in Belmullet has kindly forwarded to us the "something to advantage" circular which Joseph is in the habit of transmitting to those whom he intends to select as his victim. The public cannot be too guarded against the specious schemes of this prince of impostors, who, it may be well to remark, never post-pays his letters.
