      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, August 29, 1849

      SALMON FISHERIES
      A meeting of the Conservators of this district was held at the court-house
      on Monday. The Conservators present were - W.B. Halliday, W. Malley, (Turlow,)
      John Little, John M'Culloch, Esqrs. John C. Larminie, Esq., also attended.
      W.H. Halliday, Esq., was voted to the chair, when it was proposed by John
      M'Culloch, Esq. and seconded by W. Malley, Esq., that Mr. Wm. Little be
      requested to act as clerk for the ensuing year at a salary of £30 per annum.
      There not being a sufficient number of Conservators present, it was thought
      advisable to adjourn the meeting to a future day, to be yet named, to carry out
      other matters of importance that will be brought forward on the next day of
      meeting.

      THE HARVEST- New oats was offered for sale in this market on Monday last,
      and very soon the sickles will be in full operation. The blight in the potato,
      the appearance of which we noticed last week, has not increased.
