or about 110 acres, being part of said Minors' Estate, for three years by

EMPLOYMENT OF THE POOR
A memorial from this town having been forwarded by James H. Burke, Esq.,
Mayor, a few days ago, requesting that his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant would
be graciously pleased to order the commencement of the public works in this
county, his Worship the Mayor has received, by this evening's post, a most
satisfactory answer. Mr. Gregory in his letter states, that the public sorks
will be immediately commenced, the Lord Lieutenant having issued orders to that
effect.- This is most gratifying news.
We have been informed this day, by Francis Blake, Esq. of Cregg, that the
greatest possible distress prevails in his neighbourhood. We are persuaded that
Commisary-General Luscombe, with his characteristic humanity, will afford the
miserable sufferers immediate relief.
Yesterday a party of the 5th Dragoon Guards arrived in Galway, and was the
bearer, we understand, of some money for the distribution of Mr. Commissary
Luscombe. They put up at the Clanricarde Hotel, and on their departure this
morning they expressed themselves highly pleased at the accommodation they
received- the forage, stabling, &c. being excellent.
