On Tuesday, the 12th inst., Thomas J. O'Donovan, Esq., to Miss Ellen Feeny,
both of Sligo. The ceremony was performed by the bride's brother, the Very Rev.
Mr. Feeny, P.P., at his residence Cairn's foot, Sligo, and graced by the
presence of the Right Rev. Dr. Browne, R.C. Bishop, the Mayor, Thomas Kelly,
Esq., and a large number of the clergy and gentry of the town and vicinity.
Wm. D. Power, Esq., High Constable of Shanid, in this county, after having
received payment of Grand Jury cess at Shanagolden, was driving home when four
highwaymen attempted to stop him near Old Abbey-gate. Mr. Power whipped on his
horse and one of the fellows discharged a blunderbuss, the wadding of which
wounded his beast in the neck. Two men are committed by George J. Goold, Esq.,
R.M., for this daring outrage. A steward in the employ of Mr. Hurfory, civil
engineer, was subsequently robbed of a parcel of silver near the same place by
armed men. The other money in bank notes concealed on his person, fortunately
escaped their search. -- Limerick Chronicle.
