      EXTRAORDINARY OCCURRENCE - The following singular occurrence which took
      place a few days since in the neighbourhood of Woodford, has excited a very
      considerable sensation there: Elizabeth Cave, an interesting young woman
      about nineteen years of age, who lived in the service of _____ Forrest, Esq.
      a gentleman residing at Woodford, in consequence of getting her feet wet,
      caught a severe cold, which brought on a fever. She was confined to her bed
      for several days, when she, to all appearance, died! An undertaker was sent
      for, and the next day, she was placed in a coffin, and the intelligence of
      her supposed death transmitted to her mother, an industrious woman, with a
      large family, who was almost broken-hearted at the melancholy tidings. From
      her good conduct while in the service of Mr. Forrest, that gentleman had
      resolved to defray the expences of the funeral, which, it was arranged,
      should take place on Sunday last, a week after her supposed death.- On that
      day, her mother, and several other relatives came to pay the last tribute of
      respect to her memory - and, previously to the coffin being screwed down,
      went to take a look at the body, when one of them observed that she had not
      undergone the change usual on such occasions, and that her face appeared
      rather flushed. She suggested the propriety of sending for a surgeon, which
      was immediately done; he ordered her to be placed in a warm bath, and
      applied the remedies usually resorted to, to recover persons apparently
      drowned, and which were happily crowned with success, as the young woman was
      so far recovered in a few hours, as to be able to speak, and is now in a
      fair way of recovery. The anxiety with which her friends witnessed the
      progress of the means resorted to for her restoration, and their joy at its
      success, may be more easily conceived than described.


      DEATHS
      A few days ago, at an advanced age, at Fort Hill, near Gort, Dr. Thomas
      Burke- a Gentleman universally regretted by all his friends and
      acquaintances.


      TO BE LET
      From the 25th of March next, for such Term as may be agreed on.

      opposite the Canal Harbour, now occupied by Captain Fitzgerald.

      October 28, 1824.
