      Mr. Patrick Bishop, of Thurles, in the County of Tipperary, has obtained a
      Commission for taking Affidavits in the Court of Exchequer.
      Monday an Adjournment of the Quarter Sessions for the City of Dublin was
      held at the Tholsel, when Thomas Dougherty and Hester Troy were tried and found
      Guilty for different Felonies, and ordered for Transportation after which the
      Court adjourned to Friday next.
      On Thursday last the honourable the Dublin Society adjudged the Premium of
      15l. to Mr. James O'Neil of Rantavan in the County of Cavan, for Reclaiming and
      Liming dry Mountains.
      Last Sunday a most excellent Charity Sermon was preached in the Parish
      Church of St. Werburgh, by the Rev. Mr. Dodgson, F.R.S. first Chaplain to his
      Excellency the Lord Lieutenant, and a Collection made for the Support of the
      Boys educated in the Charity School of that Parish, amounting to upwards of 78l.
      The Watch of St. Mary's Parish, by a new Regulation, is set every Night by
      Beat of Drum, and the Parish perambulated by the Serjeant, Corporal, and four
      Men at nine o'Clock, with the Drum beating Ta-too. This Method of setting the
      Watch, the military Appearance of the Watchmen, and the Discipline introduced in
      this and St. Ann's Parishes, we hope will induce the other Parishes of this City
      to follow their Example: When this Regulation becomes general, which our chief
      Magistrate is taking great Pains to effect; we think there can be no Doubt of
      the future Safety of the Inhabitants under such Protection; and no small
      Addition of Strength afforded to the Civil Power.
      The poor Prisoners in the Four Courts Marshalsea acknowledge the Receipt of
      two Guineas by the Hands of Mr. William Williamton, from a Lady; for which they
      return their most grateful Thanks. Also half a Crown given them for them to Mr.
      M'Culloh, Printer, in Henry-street.
      DEATHS.] A few Days ago, in Cork, the Rev. Mr. Mahony.- In Rosemary-lane,
      Mr. Anthony Welsh, Taylor.- In Francis-street, the Wife of Mr. Rutherford, an
      eminent Bricklayer.- Yesterday, after a tedious illness, Thomas Taylor, Esq; one
      of the Aldermen of this City.

      Candles and Soap,
      ANN VICKERS, Tallow-Chandler, who some Years ago followed Business in
      Truck-street, has now opened a Shop on Crooked-Staff, near Newmarket on the Comb
      and hopes for Encouragement from her Friends and the Public, as she is
      determined, by the Quality of her Goods, and by the greatest Dilligence and Care
      in executing their Commands, to do every Thing in her Power to deserve their
      Favour.
