There is a very extensive parish about the New Quay, in which the
people are all comparatively wealthy. The spiritual care of a large
congregation is entrusted to the Rev. Mr. Geoghegan, a Clergyman of
exemplary character; but, who, we do not find, has done any thing as yet to
forward the "Catholic Rent" in his district. If we looked through the entire
Kingdom, we could scarcely discover another parish which exhibits the
working of the system more glaringly than that to which we allude. It pays
an immense revenue in Tithes, and discharges every demand for building
Churches and Glebes, at the same time that there does not live within the
entire parish a Protestant but ONE!- that three is not a single Protestant
Church or Glebe-house in it - and that the Parson, the Rev. Mr. Cassidy,
lives in France- some thousand miles from the place where he ought to
reside. Now, if this is not monstrous and well-calculated to make people run
mad, why we cannot tell what is. And yet, with all this just under their
eyes, do these people keep back, and suffer places of less suffering to go
before them. We expect that our hint will be taken, and that we shall not be
obliged to repeat it. We entreat of the Reverend Clergyman (as we shall of
some others too) to explain to his flock the nature of the Rent measure -
the people have energy and inclination - they only require to be reminded of
We are informed that during Mr. Kean's stay in Galway for the last
week, some unknown villain or villains, for purposes which no one can
divine, cut and destroyed the panels of his carriage. Any thing more wicked,
more unjustifiable, or outrageous, we have never heard; - a Gentleman of
acknowledged talents - mild and affable demeanour - unconnected with the
place - a stranger too, to be that wantonly insulted, without any viable
cause on earth, appears to us the very achme of villainy, and leaves little
doubt upon our mind but that the perpetrator will mount still higher in
crime until the law may interfere and cut short his wicked career. Several
highly respectable Gentlemen have proposed setting a subscription on foot
for the discovery of the persons concerned in this treacherous piece of
mischief; and we have little doubt that their object will be fully achieved.
We call upon the authorities to use their vigilance on this occasion.
