      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Co. Mayo
      Wednesday, September 25, 1850

      Mr. Scully, brother of F. Scully, Esq., M.P., for Tipperary, is
      appointed a Stipendary Magistrate. The M.P. has been a thick and thin
      Government voter this last session, and is now compensated. A great patriot
      entirely is Mr. Scully, M.P.--Mail.

      CAPTURE OF JOSEPH ADY - Yesterday afternoon James Bradley, a most
      active officer connected with the Mansion-house, succeeded by stratagem, in
      capturing the notorious Joseph Ady. Bradley lodged his prisoner in the
      Giltspur-street Compter, on a warrant for 19l. 3s. for postage on upwards of
      2,000 "returned" letters, the "property of the Postmaster General."

      It is with regret that we announce the death of the Rt. Rev. Dr.
      Stopford, Lord Bishop of Meath. The melancholy event took place suddenly on
      Thursday last at Ardbraccan, his lordship's residence. The deceased prelate
      was elevated from the Archdeaconry of Armagh to the see of Meath, during the
      Viceroyalty of Earl de Grey. Dr. Stopford had been long labouring under
      disease of the heart. - His lordship was a member of the Privy Council in
      Ireland.

      JOSEPH ADY
      This notorious character has been trying his hand in the wilds of
      Erris. A gentleman residing in Belmullet has kindly forwarded to us the
      "something to advantage" circular which Joseph is in the habit of
      transmitting to those whom he intends to select as his victim. The public
      cannot be too guarded against the specious schemes of this prince of
      impostors, who, it may be well to remark, never post-pays his letters.

      BIRTHS
      In this town, on Wednesday, the 18th inst., the lady of J.C.O.
      Urquhart, Esq., Provincial Bank, of a son.
      September 17, at Mount Druid, county Roscommon, the lady of Denis
      O'Connor, Esq., of a daughter.
      September 9, at Castlebar, the lady of the Rev. Hamilton Townsend, of a
      daughter.

      MARRIED
      September 3 in Desert-Martin Church, county Derry, by the Rev. J.S.
      Knox, rector of Maghera, and brother of the bride, the Rev. W.A. Ormsby,
      incumbent of St. Martin's, Norwich, to Helen Adelaide, youngest daughter of
      the late Hon. and Right Rev. William Knox, Lord Bishop of Derry.

      DIED
      September 17, at Bellaghy Glebe, county Londonderry, Maria, daughter of
      the late Wm. Sterne Noy, Esq.

      THE ARMY

      27 years serving.

      of Lieut-General Sir John Harvey at Halifax, has sold out of the service.
      Lieut. Mellor, 2d Lifeguards; Capt. Lord Manderville, Grenadier Guards;
      Leiut. Harvey, 34th; and Ensign Mackenzie, 93d, sold out of the service on
      Tuesday.
      Brevet Major Longworth, 31st, was obliged to retire from active service
      this week, in consequence of ill health, the result of his wounds in the
      late Sikh campaigns.
      Sir Harry Smith will be the last Military Governor at the Cape Good
      Hope.
