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.
