      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, Sept 26, 1849

      THE CHURCH- On Thursday the Lord Bishop of Tuam laid the foundation stone
      of the parish church at Achil Sound, on which occasion his lordship delivered an
      impressive address. The Rev. Charles Seymour read the service, and the Rev. Mr.
      Stoney preached, after which the rev. Edward Nangle addressed an immense
      assemblage in the Irish language. On the previous day his lordship performed the
      ceremony of confirmation on four hundred persons at the colony.

      On Thursday last twenty-young females left the Castlebar workhouse for
      Australia.

      SALMON FISHERIES
      Pursuant to public advertisement a meeting of Fishery Commissioners was
      held on Saturday, in the Court House of Westport, at which the following
      conservators attended:- Sir Richard O'Donnell, Bart., General Thompson, William
      Plunket, Esq., D. Plunket, Esq., Edward Atkinson, Esq., Mr. Nixon, Mr. Eastwood,
      W.J. Ffennell, Esq. Inspecting Commissioner, also attended.
      Sir Richard O'Donnell being called to the chair, it was resolved-
      "That the office of the Bank of Ireland be appointed Treasurer for the funds
      of the district, and that the chairman notify the same to the commissioners, in
      order that the funds be lodged to the credit of the conservators."
      Twenty-seven pounds were voted to be expended to the Killery portion of the
      district, tin the employment of nine water-keepers, to be appointed by the
      conservators; and £30 to be expended for the same purpose in the Newport side of
      the district.
      Patrick Caulfield was appointed clerk for the district and inspector of the
      Killery division, at a salary of £15.
      It was then resolved that application to be made to the Commissioner of
      Fisheries to divide the district, it being at present too large.

      DOLLY'S BRAE- Query- What took J.B. Quin, Esq. J.P. of Dromore-house, all
      the way to Castlewellan petty sessions, on the very day that some terrible
      Orangemen were dragged before the magistrates because they would not let
      themselves be slaughtered by a band of pious, innocent, and harmless Ribbonmen?
      People will talk; but if Dromore-house gossip be true a certain official letter
      of T.N.R. sanctioned if not required, his assistance. It is wondered if D.
      Linlay and R. Magennis, Esqrs., his coadjutors, were influenced by a similar
      missive. This certainly can be the case, or are they all so bursting with
      justice that neither time nor place is an object?--Belfast News-Letter.
