In the Matter of
COURT OF KING’S BENCH, DUBLIN, MAR. 4.
The Widow Holmes v. Brophy, merchant.
Friday, Saturday, yesterday, and this day, the Court has been occupied in this remarkable cause.
To-day, about twelve o’clock, the Jury retired, to consider their verdict.
Some time[?] after they had left the Jury box, they called for some bills of lading, and books of accounts ; but Mr. Justice Jebb, who presides, ruled, that as the evidence had closed on both sides, no new matter could be gone into.
The Jury, at three o’clock, returned a verdict for the Widow Holmes, by which means this poor lady will immediately be paid Eleven Hundred Pounds, lodged nearly two years in Court, waiting this decision, which was an issue from the Court of Chancery.
The Judge remarked that this was the FIFTH time the cause came before him in one shape or another—originally in that Court in December, 1824—secondly, in February, 1825—thirdly, in May, 1825—fourthly, in Green-street—and this, said the Judge, is the fifth ; and if it shall ever come before me again, I shall do as Lord Ellenborough did in England—REFUSE TO TRY THE CAUSE.
The Judge could have added, that it was before the Lord Chancellor many times, and before the merchants of Dublin, as arbitrators— all of whom awarded for the widow.
In the Matter of
POLICE.—Committed by the Police Magistrate to Carrickfergus Gaol,
for trial at next Assizes, Michael M’Nally, charged with receiving

CALEDON PLOUGHING MATCH.
About half past 5 the Society, about 40 in number, sat down to a most excellent dinner, provided with every delicacy of the season, in Taylor’s Inn, Caledon. It was served up in Mr. Taylor’s best style ; and too much praise cannot be given to him, for his exertions upon this, as well as every similar occasion. Captain Lodge, in the absence of Earl Caledon, was called to the Chair ; William Alexander, Esq. acted as Croupier. The cloth being removed, the following toasts were given ; and to each of which, the following tunes were played by the band, who was in attendance in an adjoining room :--
The King.—Tune, God save the King. Duke of Clarence and the Navy.—Rule Britannia. Lord Hill and the Army.—British Grenadiers.

Many other toasts were drunk upon the occasion, and the party all separated about 12 o’clock, highly pleased with the amusement of the day and the entertainments of the evening.
LOUGHGILLY PLOUGHING MATCH.
The Loughgilly Farming Society held their first ploughing match on Tuesday the 26th ult., in Mr. Charles Steel’s farm, when twenty-one well appointed ploughs started, twenty of which were of iron. From the novelty of such a scene in the parish, an immense concourse of spectators of all classes, notwithstanding the unfavourableness of the morning, were attracted to the spot : probably not less than 5000 persons were present, by whom, it is but justice to add, the most peaceable and orderly conduct was observed during the day. A signal for commencement was given, and in three hours the whole work was finished in a masterly and expeditious style. The Judges, Mr. Wann, of Gosford, Mr. Kinmouth, of Drumbanagher, and Mr. Hardy of Cooleyhill, paid unwearied attention to the task assigned them, and their decisions gave general satisfaction. The work being done in two fields of different quality, it was determined by the Committee, that four prizes should be allotted to one in which were six ploughs, and nine to the other in which were fifteen ploughs.
IN FIRST FIELD.—1st Prize, a Scotch Plough, awarded to Rev. Mr. Riggs ; plough held by his son Warren. 2d Prize, a Double Harrow, to Mr. Robert Hutchinson ; plough held by his son Robert. 3d Ditto, Wheelbarrow, to Mr. John Brown ; plough held by himself. 4th Ditto, Crossbar, to Mr. John Langtry ; plough held by his son.
IN SECOND FIELD.—1st Prize, a Roller, to Mr. Bernard Toner ; plough held by his son Laughlin. 2d Ditto, a set of Plough Harness, to Mr. John Hutchinson ; ploughman, Thomas Shields. 3d Ditto, Cart Harness, to Mr. Robert Stewart ; plough held by his son William. 4th Ditto, Plough Harness, to Wm. Atkinson, Esq. ; ploughman, Owen M’Shane. 5th Ditto, Collar and Harness, to Mr. I. Patton ; plough held by his son William. 6th Ditto, Double and Single Trees, to Mr. Robert Ferguson ; plough held by his son Thomas. 7th Ditto, Forest Sheeers, to Wm. Reed, Esq. ; ploughman, James Feely. 8th Ditto, a Sledge, to Mr. John Evans ; plough held by his son David. 9th Ditto, a Pick-axe, to Mr. Samuel Girvan ; plough held by his servant.
In the evening, fifty-eight Gentlemen and Farmers sat down to an excellent and substantial dinner, in Miss Ingram’s, of Mountnorris. William Atkinson, of Glen-Anne, Esq., as Vice-President, took the Chair. The cheerful glass began its course, and the following toasts were drunk with the most lively and cordial unanimity :
The King, the most talented Monarch and accomplished Gentleman in Europe. The Duke of Clarence, and the rest of the Royal Family. The British Navy, may its flag ever ride triumphant around the world. The Duke of Wellington and the Army, and may the laurels won at Waterloo never fade. The Marquis of Anglesea, and prosperity in Ireland. Earl Gosford and the County Armagh. The Farming Societies of Ireland, and encrease to them. The Exports of Ireland. The Manufactures of Ireland. The Loughgilly Farming Society, and success to it. Speed the Plough. The North East Society and all its branches. Our worthy President, Rev. Dr. Stewart, and the rest of our absent members. The Judges of the day, and thanks for their attendance.

The Rose, Thistle and Shamrock. Universal benevolence. Breeding in all its branches. Our next merry meeting.
At eleven o’clock the company separated in the utmost harmony, highly pleased with the entire business of the day, and joyfully anticipating the annual return of the same festive scenes.

Richard Bolton, Esq. of Bective Lodge, near Navan, High Sheriff, came into town on Sunday evening, in a splendid chariot and four, with rich liveries. The following Grand Jury were sworn :
Lord Killeen, Earl Bective, Viscount Clifden, Hon. Thomas Barnewall, Sir Charles Dillon, J. W. S. Napier, Chr. Ar. Nicholson, Gustavus Lambert, William Blaney Wade, George D.[?] Nugent, Robert Bourke, J. Pratt Winter, Richard Ruxton Fitzherbert, William H. Waller[?], N. Coddington, A. J. Doppling[?], J. J. N. Gerard, Elias Corbally, John Thompson, C. A. Tisdall, Henry Sweete[?], Peter Ponsonby Merge, Ferdinand M. M’Veagh, Esqrs.
The Chief Justice charged the Jury, and said, he was happy the calendar exhibited few cases of depravity, considering the distance of time since the last Assizes—this was highly creditable to the Magistracy and the police. His Lordship dwelt on the state of the present gaol, and the necessity for the present Grand Jury to follow up and complete the contracts presented to the former Jury for building the new prison. He read the Report presented to the House of Commons by the inspectors of Gaols, stating this to be the worst gaol in the Northern District. He complimented the different officers of the gaol, not only for doing their duty so well, in so defective a building, but for the considerable diminution he observed in the expenses.
There are 78 prisoners for trial—few of the cases are heavy.
There are four records in all, three will be tried or settled this day. One of the four is the great cause of Sturgeon against Sturgeon. The issue to be tried is, who is the heir at law of the late Mr. Sturgeon, of Dublin. It is said that the present plaintiff was made acquainted with his rights by accidentally seeing in an English newspaper an advertisement (put in by the late Mr. Barlow, who, with a Mr. Crowe, had some claim on this property,) seeking for information as to the time of the death of the present plaintiff ! who is here now, with many of his family from England, contesting his claim with Mr. Barlow, and Mr. Crowe’s; former opponent.
The Attorney General, Mr. Holmes, Mr. Perrin, and Mr. O’Connell have come down special on this case.

County of Roscommon,
WHEREAS on the
Night of Friday the 22d,
or Morning of Saturday the
23d day of February instant, an Armed Party attacked the Agent’s House, at Arigna, in said County, and Fired a Shot at Mr. THOMAS HILL COX, who appeared at one of the upper windows of said house, by which they wounded him in the Face and Neck with small shot, which almost instantly created his death, and afterwards broke into the House by a back window, and Robbed the same of two Trunks and several articles of Wearing Apparel, the property of said Thomas Hill Cox. Now we, the undersigned Magistrates and Inhabitants of the neighbourhood, viewing with just indignation this daring and wicked Murder and Robbery, so revolting to our feelings, disgraceful to our Country, and injurious to our Interests, do hereby offer the Sums annexed to our Names, for the apprehension and conviction (within Six Calendar Months from the date hereof) of the Person or Persons concerned in said Outrage.—Dated this 26th Day of February, 1828. [Here follows the List of Subscribers.]
The LORD LIEUTENANT, for the better apprehending and bringing to justice the Persons concerned in the Outrage committed upon Mr. THOMAS HILL COX, mentioned in the foregoing Advertisement, is pleased hereby to declare, that if any Person or Persons shall, within Six Months from the date hereof, give Information which may lead to the discovery of all or any of the Persons concerned in the said Outrage, so as that they may be apprehended and convicted thereof, such Person or Persons shall receive a Reward of Three Hundred Pounds.
And further, that if any one of the Persons concerned in the said Outrage (except the Persons who actually wounded Mr. Thomas Hill Cox), shall, within the time aforesaid, discover his accomplices, so as that they may be apprehended and convicted thereof, they shall receive his Majesty’s Pardon, as well as the said Reward,
By His Excellency's Command,
REFORMATION SOCIETY—PROCEEDINGS AT MONAGHAN.
Shortly afterwards a countryman stood forward and was permitted to speak for the time allowed by the regulations of the Meeting. As soon as he was answered the Meeting adjourned until 12 o’clock the following day.
On Wednesday at 12 o’clock the Chair was resumed by the Rector of Monaghan, and so dense was the mass of people in every part of the building that the Speakers were obliged to stand for the whole of the day. There were not fewer at the lowest computation than three thousand persons present, and the proportion of Roman Catholics was even greater than the preceding day.— Throughout the entire of Wednesday’s proceedings the same anxiety seemed to sit on the countenances of the Roman Catholic part of the assembly—and as the speakers addressed the meeting from the Sheriff’s box, which projected in the form of a pulpit from the centre of the apartment, they were distinctly heard by every person present.
The Roman Catholic disputants were strengthened by some fresh additions, and the speakers on the Protestant side were the Rev. Messrs. St. George, Stewart, and Wilson, and Mr. Gordon. The addresses from the Roman Catholics were, as usual, an unconnected assortment of the popular arguments advanced by Milner and other controversialists ; but there was no attempt at the offensive and blasphemous ribaldry of the sceptic and the deist, so constantly resorted to in the South. The speaking on the Protestant side was a well sustained display of irresistable argument and convincing illustration, and it is impossible to foresee the extent of the effect which it is calculated to produce. The meeting adjourned at five o’clock, in a spirit which comported with the solemnity and importance of the object which had brought it together, upon an understanding that the discussion should recommence on as early a day as shall suit the convenience of the parties engaged.—Dublin Paper.
THE CHURCH.—On Sunday last the Bishop of Cloyne held an Ordination at St. Mark’s Church, for the Bishop of Ferns, who was prevented coming up to Dublin. The following Gentlemen were ordained. PRIESTS—R. J. Brewster, A.B.; Langrishe Banks, A.B. ; Edward Denishe, A.B. ; James Burnett, A.B.; and for the Diocese of Dublin, Charles H.

BEEF-STEAK CLUB.—This Club met at Morrison’s Great Room, on Friday.—Among the professors present were—Messrs. Logier, Pigot, Alday, Mugrath, Buggin, brothers Hermann, &c. &c.—The arrival of Lord Anglesea at Kingstown, was announced and his health drank with warm demonstrations. Amongst the company present, were the Earls of Rathsdowne and Bective, Lord Edward Hay, Sir George Murray, Colonels Wedderburne and Blacker, Major Murray Beaches, Sir Charles Vernon, the Hon. Mr. Fitzroy, (nephew to the Duke of Grafton,) Alderman M’Kenny, Messrs. Plunkett, Harte, Lambart, &c., &c. The gallery was, as usual, crowded with ladies.— Patriot.
