OUTRAGE.- On Friday night two very superior ewes in lamb, the property of Edward
Howley, Esq., were killed on the lands at Carrahubbuk, near Ennisacrone, and the
carcasses removed by some persons unknown. The sheep were worth, at least, £4
each. We trust the police will be able to trace out the perpetrators of this
outrage, and that due diligence will be used by all parties to prevent the
increase of such malicious acts.
MAYO PRISON- Anthony Ormsby, Esq., High Sheriff, on the recommendation of
the Earl of Lucan, has appointed Mr. Davis R. Young, son of Mr. William Young of
this town, to the Governorship of Mayo Prison, in the room of Mr. Gallogly,
dismissed. We have no hesitation in saying that a better and more deserved
selection could not possibly be made, as we are confident from Mr. D.R. Young's
uniform steadiness, probity and good conduct, that he will do credit to the
position to which he has been promoted. Mr. Young has entered on the duties of
his office, and has already showed, by his exertion and attention, his
capabilities for the discharge of the onerous functions of governor of a prison.
Mr. R.J. Nixon has also been elected as Deputy-Governor-of which appointment we
also have to express our appreciation.-- Mayo Constitution.
