      THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
      Galway, Thursday, June 28, 1824

      PURLOINING OF NEWSPAPERS - A fellow was detected on Thursday evening in the
      act of stealing a newspaper at the General Post-Office. He was immediately taken
      into custody, and will be prosecuted under the act of the present Session. The
      practice of purloining papers has of late become so serious a nuisance, and the
      cause of so many disappointments, that the public are much indebted to the
      Secretary, Sir Edward Lees, for his zeal in getting the bill passed, which makes
      it a penal offence.-- D.E. Post.

      The Marquis of Sligo has determined to try the experiment of introducing
      the waving of cotton and muslin into Westport. Already has his Lordship directed
      a scientific gentleman to procure the required machinery; and a quantity of yarn
      has been purchased in Belfast for the purpose.

      The Lord Chancellor has been pleased to appoint Lieut.-General Mervyn
      Archdall, to be a Justice of the Peace and Quorum for the county of Fermanagh,
      and Major Thomas D'Arcy, for the counties of Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh,
      and Monaghan.

      THE CIRCUITS
      Friday the Judges met in the King's Bench Chamber, when the following
      arrangements were made for the next Summer's Assizes, which will commence about
      25th July next: -
      LEINSTER - The Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Johnston.
      HOME - Lord Norbury and Baron Smith.
      MUNSTER - Mr. Justice Vandeleur and Mr. Justice Torrens.
      CONNAUGHT - The Chief Baron and Mr. Justice Burton.
      NORTH WEST - Mr. Justice Moore and Baron Pennefather.
