      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, November 21, 1849

      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.
