      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, Sept 5, 1849

      RAIN THE BEST CLEANER- It is stated from accurate calculations that
      one-half hour's heavy rain removed from the sewers of London more deposit and
      detritus than 100,000 men could remove, working ten hours.

      During the last three months, 99,941 emigrants arrived at New York from
      Europe, being nearly 1,070 per diem average.

      Mrs. Trollope has been sojourning these last few days in Dublin. It is
      supposed that Paddy's Land is to be "done" by her in another book.

      Barring the casualties of war and climate, soldiers appear to be rather a
      long-lived class of men, there being no less than 500 claimants for medals of
      the battle of Maide, fought in 1806.

      During the past week 476 paupers left the Carlow workhouse.

      Her Majesty sent £40 to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, Cork, for relief of
      the poor.

      The Cork Dispensary received £40, the Lying-in Hospital £50, and the
      Indigent room-keepers society £40, from her Majesty, through the Lord Bishop.

      Sir Timothy O'Brien, M.P., Lord Mayor of Dublin, appears in the late London
      Gazette as a Baronet, with right of descent of the dignity to his heirs male.

      Michael John Browne, Esq. of Castlemoyle, late Sheriff of Galway died on
      Monday night of cholera, while on a visit of Castlederry, at which place he
      arrived on Saturday from Dublin where it is supposed he contracted the disease.

      The Lord Bishop of Salisbury has appointed Friday next to be set apart as a
      day of humiliation and prayer in consequence of the national visitation with
      which this country has been afflicted by the presence of cholera. A special
      service will be held at the cathedral and in the parish churches on that day.

      Mrs. Wall, of Marlboro' street, who, it is alleged, absconded with 1800
      belonging to the creditors of her husband, was yesterday lodged in gaol at
      Belfast.

      All the hotels in Killarney, as well as private lodgings continued crowded
      to excess with visitors to the lakes.
