CARLOW, JULY 8 - The Right Rev. Dr. Doyle and his three curates in the
parish of Carlow, and the adjoining parish of Graigue, have voluntarily
relinquished the whole of their Sunday collections for two months, that the
money may be distributed amongst the indigent poor of these two parishes. This
we call real and practical religion, because we know that the whole income of
these parishes, did not give any redundancy to the Bishop or his Curates, and
they must consequently curtail even their necessary expenses.
LIMERICK, JULY 7 - The Limerick July fair, held on Monday, was one of the
best that was recollected for a length of time, although it was supposed that
the fair of Ballingarry would interfere with it. Good milch cows brought from
seven to nine guineas; strippers, heifers, and yearlings, proportionate prices;
sheep, from 18s. to 25s.- Horses, in good demand, and a great shew of them, from
ten guineas up to thirty-twenty guineas were refused for three year old
colts-two years old carried from ten to fifteen guineas.
Sunday, the Right Rev. Dr. M'Mahon, Coadjutor Bishop of Killaloe, attended
by the Right Rev. Dr. Tuohy, examined and confirmed 283 children in the chapel
of Castleconnell. After the ceremony, which was very impressive and solemn, the
Right Rev. Doctor exhorted them to be submissive to the laws of the land, and to
put their trust in the King of Kings, who will never forsake those who repose
their confidence in him.
Several hundred summonses were issued last week, by the Magistrates of
Kilmallock, for the recovery of Tithes, some for the sum of six pence!
Saturday morning, the redoubted Captain Cotter, was lodged in Tralee gaol,
charged with the murder of poor Brereton, for which crime four others have
already been suffered.
Major D'Arcy has been appointed Inspector General of the Constabulary force
in Limerick and the adjoining Counties.
