      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, August 8, 1849


      BESSY BELL- A ROMANTIC REPORTER- At the Roscrea sessions, a young, interesting
      girl of a most prepossessing, oriental cast of countenance, dark eyes, deep
      fringed eyelashes, raven tresses, enveloped in a large fawn-colored head dress,
      which gave beautiful shading to the general contour of her countenance, was
      caught in the act of secreting a piece of tobacco under her cloak, form the shop
      of Mr. George Faucett. She owned the rude impeachment, and poor Bessy was sent
      for trial to the ensuing assizes of Nenagh, lamenting, and lamented by all in
      court.--Leinster Express.


      EMIGRATION FROM PLYMOUTH. On Wednesday last the William and Mary sailed for
      Sydney with 162 female Irish orphans, accompanied by the proper matrons. - The
      Navarino, 650 tons, the Nelson, 603 tons, the Success, 621 tons, and the
      Himalaya, 447 tons, have arrived during the week to embark emigrants at this
      port. They are chartered by the Colonial Emigration Commissioners.

      DR. LANGLEY- The grand jury of Tipperary have found a bill for the murder
      of his wife against Dr. Langley. Pound, the man-servant, one of the principal
      witnesses for the prosecution, has, we are informed, absconded.

      Patrick Cormack was found guilty of the murder of Miss Prendergast, at
      Portumna, county Galway. The prisoner confessed his guilt. He was sentenced to
      be hanged on the 28th of August.

      BLACK BARLEY- Mr. Olphreds favoured us yesterday with a sample of this
      curious barley, which was reaped on the 1st inst. The specimen is excellent, the
      grain heavy and rich, and as Mr. Olphreds assures us it is but an average
      specimen, it would be well worth the attention of farmers.- This gentleman has
      an Irish rood of it, which he sowed in January, at the rate of about eight stone
      to the acre. The yield has not been very abundant, owing he thinks to the
      poverty of the soil. He is of opinion that the black barley is well adapted to
      this climate, as it stands both the winter frosts and the spring rains
      well.--Sligo Guardian.
