Galway, Thursday, June 17, 1824
The Lord Chancellor has been pleased to appoint the following Gentlemen to
be Justices of the Peace and Quorum for the Counties as undernamed:-
John Savatier, Esq., for the Queen's County; the Rev. Denis Mahony, for the
County of Kerry; Col. Sir Robert Travers, for the County of Cork; Thos. A.W.
Ensor, for the County of Donegal; Robert Goff, Esq. for the County of Roscommon;
Charles Fawcet, Esq. for the Counties of Fermanagh and Donegal; Walter Joyce,
Esq. for the County of Galway; and C. Ed John Nugent, Esq. for the County of
IRISH MINES- Notwithstanding the Standing Orders introduced by Lord
Lauderdale, the Irish Mining Bill, thanks to Lord Harrowby-has been read a
second time. The Standing Order was suspended at his Lordship's instance, and
with scarcely any opposition the question passed. There is no doubt that the
Bill will finally become a law-and a fair prospect will be opened to the
industry and capital and what, we own gratifies much more, to a part at least of
the Population of the Country. There will be some employment at any rate-and the
very impetus given, will have the effect of producing more.
The Rev. Mr. Hughes, Parish Priest of Moycullen, acknowledges to have
received, without any solicitation from Mr. Catherall, of Chester, the sum of
30s. on that humane Gentleman hearing that his parishioners were totally
destitute of provisions.
LINE OF ROAD FROM CRAUGHWELL TO LOUGHREA.
A line of Road, considerably shortening the distance from Craughwell to
Loughrea, and avoiding several hills, has been presented for, and granted by the
Grand Jury at the last Assizes. The money is ready, and we are not aware of any
obstacle existing to prevent it from being immediately commenced. We hope it is
not necessary for us to urge the Gentlemen in that neighbourhood to exert
themselves on the behalf of their poor and miserable tenantry, who, we are
credibly informed, are little removed from starvation, owing to the present
scarcity of provisions in that quarter.
