      A meeting of Mr. P. O'Donohue's friends has been held in Boston, at which
      123 dollars was collected for the family of Mr. O'Donohun, now undergoing
      transportation.

      Lord Denman, chief justice, who is paralysed, retires on a pension of £4000
      a year.

      There is not one Irish officer on the flag list in active service, and only
      three Captains of the entire Royal Navy! This is not justice to Ireland in the
      Admiralty patronage. The junior Admiral, Sir David Duan, is an Irishman, and a
      very distinguished officer.-- Limerick Chronicle.

      The brig South Stockton, of Newcastle, from Quebec was fallen in with the
      5th November, water-logged, the two surviving of the crew in the tops having
      been obliged to subsist on the flesh and blood of the rest who had died off!

      Sunday night a party effected an entrance into the back premises of the
      house of the Rev. Warden Daly, Salt Hill, Galway, from whence they abstracted
      table linen, shirts, carpenters' tools, &c.

      A pensioner named Fitzgerald and his two sons were crushed to death near
      Glin, by the fall of the gable wall of the house as they lay in bed.

      We believe there is no longer any doubt that Mr. Corry Connollan is about
      to retire from the office of private Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant.-- Dublin
      Herald.

        WORKHOUSE INDUSTRY- From the Tuam Herald we learn the gratifying
        information that between the 16th of June last and the 27th ult., there was spun
        in the Workhouse of the Tuam Union: 2,750 lbs of wool; 1,393 lbs of tow; 488 lbs
        of flax-which was manufactured into blankets, sheets, bedding, and clothing at
        an expense of £315 11s 9d. The contract prices for the same quantity and
        description of goods would be £470 6s 4d: thus a saving was effected of £155 14s
        7d, to the Union, as well as keeping the paupers beneficially and profitably
        employed. -- Mayo Telegraph.

        A DISGRACEFUL OUTRAGE - A carman from Boyle, named John Mullanny, was
        severely beaten in Drumfin, a few nights ago, by some unknown ruffian, on
        account of his lodging with John Black, who is a persecuted Protestant, and
        keeps a carman's stage there. Poor Black has underwent grevous persecution in
        his native soil those number of years past; he sells groceries and entertains
        travellers, and his implacable neighbors, who have always acted on the principle
        of exclusive dealing towards him have frequently entreated the carmen and others
        who have lodged with him, and compelled his customers to eat the candles, soap,
        salt and raw herrings, which they had purchased from the unfortunate, obnoxious
        Protestant man! -- Sligo Guardian.

        A FATAL ACCIDENT - On Friday last as a little boy named Flatly was crossing
        a plank over Laikagh river, he fell accidentally into the water and before any
        assistance would be offered him, the creature perished in the rapid stream. The
        neighbouring people made an immediate search for his body which they found
        greatly mangled by the large stones and found it passed through half a mile from
        where it fell in.-- Sligo Guardian

        TENANT-RIGHT MEETING- An immense meeting of tenant farmers was held in
        Callan on Sunday after last mass. The chair was taken by William Conway, Esq.,
        and the proceedings passed off in an orderly manner. Resolutions in accordance
        with the object of the meeting were voted with intense enthusiasm and every
        feature was marked with the firm yet constitutional spirit by which the acts of
        such an assemblage should be characterized. The advice of an eminent counsel was
        taken as to the legality of the resolutions to be adopted.-- Tipperary Free
        Press.
