NARROW-WATER AND WARRENPOINT FARMING SOCIETY.
The Annual Meeting of this Society took place on Wednesday the 5th inst. The Ploughing Match was held in a field of Mr. John Turner’s ; 14 ploughs started, and the work, when finished, was pronounced by competent judges to be admirably performed, far excelling the ploughing of any preceding year. The Premiums were adjudged in the following order, to the five fore- most competitors, viz :--
1st, Mr. Hall—by his Ploughman M’Alister.
2d, Mr. George Finlay.
3d, Mr. George Lamb, of Mullaglass.
4th, Mr. W. Brown, of Do.
5th, Mr. Archd. Smyth, of Narrow-water—by his Ploughman.
Premiums were also given to others of the competitors for excellent work.
At 5 o’clock, with appetites whetted by the bracing air, and by the labours of the day, great impatience was exhibited by various members of the Society for the appearance of dinner ; and Andrew Sim, with his wonted foresight and discretion, had not been unmindful of the “ creature comforts.” In a short time his board afforded an ample fund for discussion, in the shape of sundry ponderous joints of beef and mutton—to say nothing of the alternations of fish, fowl and hams, &c. “ Dire was the clang,” &c. &c.
After grace, pronounced by the Rev. Samuel Arnold, a most interesting conversation took place, and a variety of information, on subjects connected with agriculture, was communicated by different individuals, particularly by Messrs. Smyth, Wm. Brown, Finlay, and Buchanan, of Kilkeel.—The two last named gentlemen explained, at some length, the five-crop system, as practised in the best districts of Scotland, and strongly recommended its adoption in this country, being applicable to farms of even the most limited extent. Many useful hints likewise were thrown out, and experiments suggested, the results to be communicated at next meeting. The absence of “the lord of the soil” was sincerely regretted by every one present, and his health, as well as the health of every member of the family of “ Narrow-water,” was toasted with enthusiasm.
On Sunday last the Old Church of Newry was re-opened for Divine Service : it looked remarkably well ; and, from the thorough and extensive repairs it has undergone, would hardly be known for the same place of worship. An eloquent and impressive Sermon, suitable to the occasion, was preached by the Rev. Dr. Robinson. The collection amounted, we hear, to £31 11s. 8d.
MULLAGLASS FARMING SOCIETY.
The annual Ploughing Match of this Society was held on Wednesday the 29th Feb., in a field of Mr. George Glenny’s, at Millvale. Thirteen ploughes [sic] started, and the Premiums were adjudged in the following order, viz.
Mr. William Brown, by his son William, ... 1st.
Rev. Mr. Riggs, by his son Warren, ... 2nd.
Mr. R. Culley, by his ploughman, ... 3d.
Mr. Hall, Narrow-water, by do. ... ... 4th.
Mr. Turner, Warrenpoint, by do. ... ... 5th.
In the afternoon, the Society, between 40 and 50 in number, sat down to a most excellent and substantial dinner, provided by Mr. Geo. White, and served in the School-house lately erected by R. Hall, Esq. of Narrow-water, the proprietor of the estate, and the munificent patron of the Society. Much useful information was communicated by various members, particularly by Mr. John Coulter, of Craigmore, as to the general management of a moderate sized farm—by Mr. Geo. Finlay, of Narrow-water, as to the system of green crops—and by Mr. Culley, of Moorvale, as to the result of some interesting experiments, tried by himself during the late year, in the cultivation of mangel wurzel. Upon the whole, every thing that passed—both the performance of the allotted work in the morning, and the practical knowledge developed during the course of the evening,--fully evinced the progressive improvement of the science of farming, and the utility of “ Farming Societies.”
NEWRY AND DONOUGHMORE FARMING SOCIETY.
The annual Ploughing Match of this Society took place yesterday, in a grass field belonging to Edward Turner, Esq. in Aughnaveagh. At one o’clock, eight ploughs started in the following order :--

6 Mr. Joseph Weir, ... ... John M’Clurgs,
7 Rev. Mr. Finlay, ... ... Adam Kearnahan,
