MEETING OF THE MENDICITY SOCIETY IN ARMAGH.
The annual Meeting of the above Society took place in the Markethouse-room on Monday the 4th inst. At 1 o’clock the Chair was taken by his Grace the Lord Primate, and the Report of the Society, during the past year, read by the Secretary. It stated, as a truly gratifying circumstance, that the Committee had to report, in the discharge of their duty towards their fellow-citizens, not only the rising prospects of the Institution, but the fulfilment of their most ardent wishes for its success and welfare. Above £700 had been expended, during the past year, in reclaiming mendicants from their life of idle vagrancy, and establishing them in habits of order and industry. The following resolutions were subsequently moved and carried unanimously :--
Resolved—1. That the Report, now read, be received as the Report of the Society, and printed under the direction of the Committee.
2. That the thanks of the Meeting be given to the Committee and Treasurer for their exertions during the past year.
3. That the thanks of the Meeting be given to A. I. Kelly, Esq. for his active exertions on behalf of the Society.
4. That we highly approve of the employment of the poor, and earnestly request the Committee will carry it into effect in whatever way they may think most conducive to the public good.
5. That the inhabitants are hereby earnestly requested, not to give alms to strolling beggars—from whom, if they should experience any annoyance, they have only to call upn the town serjeants or the police, who have directions from the Magistrates to convey them to a place of confinement.
6. That this Meeting cannot separate, without expressing their warmest thanks to Mrs. Campbell, of London, for her very liberal donation of £50—by which the Committee have been enabled extensively to distribute blankets, and other articles of comfortable clothing, among the poor of this city.
7. That Rev. John Greeves be continued as Treasurer, and the Rev. Wm. Maclean as Secretary, for the present year.
8. That the following Gentlemen be appointed a Committee for the present year :
Rev. Cosby S. Mangan,
P. S. Henry,
Messrs. Saml. Gardner,
Wm. Boyd, sen.
Wm. Boyd, jun.
His Grace, the Lord Primate, having left the Chair, and the Rev. Dr. Miller being called thereto, it was
Resolved—That the thanks of this Meeting are hereby respectfully offered to his Grace, the Lord Primate, for his kindness in taking the Chair, and for his very liberal contributions, at all times, to the funds of this Institution.
At the conclusion of the ordinary business, his Grace expressed great satisfaction in presiding at a Meeting where unanimity and concord reigned paramount. There had not been the slightest opposition offered to any of the Resolutions ; and, in fact, the conduct of every individual present seemed to result from one ardent and soul-engrossing cause—namely, the welfare of the destitute and unhappy poor. He trusted in the Almighty, that their benevolent intentions would ultimately be crowned with success-and earnestly prayed, that true charity might never cease to mingle with the better feelings of their hearts.

SHEEP-BRIDGE, Feb. 7, 1828.
| Nearly thirty convicts were conveyed
from Newport to the hulk, at Dunleary, on Friday morning, amongst whom
were Doctor Tracy and Captain Beggs.
Mr. Shirly, M.P. for Monaghan, was requested to present a petition from the Roman Catholics of Carrickmacross for unqualified emancipation, and to support the same. His answer was, that he would present their petition, but could not support the prayer of it.—Enniskillen Paper.
A party of upwards of twenty ruffians, all armed with blunderbusses and swords, went to the house of a man named Peters, a bailiff, residing on part of the lands of Ashgrove, near Bansha, on Sunday night, and having dragged himself, his son, and wife out of bed, beat them in a brutal manner, having knocked Peters down with a blow of a blunderbuss, which rendered him for some time senseless. They then proceeded to burn his house, which was soon razed to the ground. The cause assigned for this daring violation of the law is, that at the last Quarter Sessions of Clonmel, Civil Bill Ejectments were brought in the cause of Pomery and others, by directions of the Master, and decrees obtained. Previous to the house being set on fire, the ruffians dsired [sic] Peters to send back the driving money.—Clonmel Advertiser.

On Saturday last, Mr. John Hennessy, Cabinet-maker, Newry, who, we are informed, had been very instrumental in bringing to justice the Tobacco Smugglers, lately convicted in this town, was way-laid on his return from Carlingford, about five o’clock in the evening, by three men, near the house of one Hagan, a publican, in Omeath, County of Louth. He was most inhumanly beaten, and kicked when down, by the three men, who appeared to belong to the house, and to whom Hennessy had applied to put him across the water to Warrenpoint, while it was light. Various excuses for delaying his departure were made, until the dusk of the evening enabled the assassins to lay their plan, and accomplish their nefarious purpose. The shouts and screams of their victim brought to his assistance the Post-boy, who just before the attack , had passed with the mail, for Newry, and whose appearance, in all probability, saved Hennessy’s life. On making his way to Newry, Captain Brennan, of the Armagh police, on application from a Magistrate, immediately proceeded to the spot with his party, taking the wounded man on horse-back with him, and during the night he succeeded in apprehending two, out of the three miscreants, and who were pointed out by Hennessy. They have been admitted to bail to take their trial at the next Dundalk Assizes. On Monday, a man named James Hagan, who keeps the public-house, was apprehended in Newry, for having, on the day preceding (Sunday) on his return from Chapel, called on Hennessy, who was, and is still, confined to bed, and threatened to take his life unless the two men, then in custody, were liberated. The facts in the foregoing paragraph, have been all sworn to before a Magistrate.
FEE SIMPLE PROPERTY IN THE COUNTY OF ARMAGH.
TO BE SOLD OR LET,
For such Term as may be agreed on, and Immediate Possession given,
THE HOUSE and LANDS of MAYMOUNT, and the FLAX and CORN MILLS and KILN of CLARE. The HOUSE is beautifully situated on the River Cusher, within 2 Miles of TANDRAGEE, 3 of MARKETHILL, and 7 of ARMAGH—in a neighbourhood in which Flax and Wheat are much grown. The LANDS amount to 44 Acres of excellent quality, in prime condition, and have on them some Belts of Thriving Planting. The MILLS are in perfect repair, having had two new Water Wheels lately erected. They possess a good fall, and have a large supply of water, even in the driest seasons. As the buildings are extensive, they might, at a trifling expense, be converted into Flax Spinning Machinery, Bleach Yard or Flour-Mill, for any of which they are particularly well situated. So desirable an investment for Money will be rarely met with—as it is held in pure Fee Simple, and pays neither Quit nor Crown Rent.
To suit the convenience of the Purchasers, the greater part of the Price may remain in their hands, on being properly secured.
Proposals, either for Letting or Selling (if by letter, post-paid,) will be received by Doctor PATTON, TANDRAGEE, the Proprietor.
