      RECLAIMING THE BOGS OF IRELAND
      Mr. Goulburn (or Goulhurn) has given notice that he will bring in a bill on
      this subject, and we believe that by this it has been read a first time. It will
      experience no opposition-in truth, it must be carried through with the
      concurrence of all parties. This is certainly a period of great improvement and
      enterprise, and let peace only continue for six years more, we entertain not the
      shadow of a doubt, that the most sanguine anticipations of the real and
      substantial patriots of Ireland will be realised.--D.E. Post

      THE FUNDS
      The Stock Market to-day has been upon the advance, and Consuls have been
      done at 95 1/2.- One cause of this rise is assigned to the numerous assents
      which have been made to-day at the Bank. The old Flour per Cont. Office has been
      one continual scene of bustle; and it is expected on Monday, that the business
      of this Office will be continued to a very late hour. Consols closed closed at
      93 7/8 for the 9th April, and 95 7/8 for the May account.

      DEATH OF LORD COLERAINE
      Lord Coleraine (well known as Colonel Hanger) died quite suddenly at his
      house, in London, on Thursday morning. He was seized with a violent fit of
      sickness during breakfast, and expired almost instantly.
