YELLOW CANDLE TALLOWHas on Sale, on moderate Terms, a parcel of YELLOW CANDLE TALLOW, Of this Season's Importation.
We have been requested by the poor Prisoners in Lifford Gaol, to return their sincere thanks to the Rev. Russel Knox, Inspector of that Gaol, for a quantity of meat and vegetables presented to them at Christmas, and for frequently supplying them with milk at his own private expence. We comply with this request the more willingly, as we have frequently heard the prisoners speak of the general humanity of this Gentleman's conduct towards them, not only in supplying what is needful for the body, but in administering divine consolation, and frequently distributing to them religious Pamphlets with suitable admonitions.
We are sorry to learn, that the Brothers, of Rutland, bound from Dublin to Sligo, with a cargo of Tar, Hemp, Tin, &c. was on the evening of the 23 inst. put on shore at Dundoon, in Rossgul, county Donegal ; information of which reached the Collector of Ballyrain, on the morning of the 25th, who, with his usual alacrity, immediately dispatched his officers, to render their assistance in saving the property, when, on their arrival at the place, they found that Mr. Gettins, the Priest of the Parish, had, by the assistance of his parishioners, saved almost the entire of the cargo. Too much praise cannot be bestowed on Mr. Gettins, for his most laudable exertions on this occasion, and those of his flock, so exemplary and praise worthy. Nothing could mark more strongly the kind and benevolent disposition of those native of the county Donegal, than this act of disinterested humanity ; and we trust that on every other unfortunate occasion of the same kind, this example may be followed up. The vessel, we are sorry to add, is in a situation, where it is impossible to extricate her---crew saved.

regret to state, that a
soldier of the Derry
Militia, named James M'Keown, was drowned on Friday night last, about
eight o'clock, in going from this town to Lifford, near the Half-way
House. The late floods have considerably damaged the road, and at that
part the water runs with a strong current in [sic] attempting to pass,
he was forced from off his feet, and carried down. Another soldier was
but a few steps behind him, but could afford him no relief.---His body
was found next morning.
We understand there is a Presentment for repairing that road in Spring ; we trust some mode will be devised to prevent the floods injuring it in future.
