      THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
      Galway, Thursday, March 18, 1824

      The County of Kildare Magistrates have memorialled the Lord Lieutenant to
      withdraw the Insurrection Act from their Balliwick.
      Kilkenny is again become the residence of a Collector of Excise, and the
      Carlow district is to be placed under his care.
      All the corn tillage in the South of Ireland looks remarkably well.

      Two steam boats are now in forwardness to ply between Limerick and Dublin,
      by Canal and from thence to Liverpool. The proprietors will engage to deliver
      goods, during summer in three days at Liverpool, and in winter, in four days
      from Dublin harbour.
      Steam trading vessels are about to be established between Dublin and
      Glasgow.
      The Supberb steam packet is daily expected to ply from Cork to Lisbon and
      Naples; the fare twenty guineas to Lisbon and thirty-five guineas to Naples.
      A small vessel, between forty and fifty tons burthen, was seen to go down
      near Blackwater, in the gale on Thursday morning. The violence of the gale was
      extreme, and no assistance could possibly be afforded. Unfortunately all the
      persons on board perished. Another vessel about the same size was seen in
      distress the same morning off the Saltees, and it is supposed met the same
      fate.-- Waterford Mail.

      MARRIED
      On the 15th instant, in Bruff Church, by the Rev. Mr. M'Cullogh, Rector,
      Lieutenant Meyrick, Adjutant of the 39th Regiment, son of the Rev. Edward
      Meyrick, of Bath, to Catherine, daughter of John White, of Upper Dominick
      street, Galway, Esq., and cousin to Sir J. White Jervis, of Bally-Ellis, in the
      County of Wexford, Bart.

      LIBERALITY
      It gives us pleasure to hear that Robert French, Esq. of Monivea Castle,
      our present High Sheriff for the County, has been kind enough to give a LEASE
      FOR EVER, of an Acre of Land to a Parish in his neighbourhood, as a site for a
      Roman Catholic Chapel about to be erected on it; and has also subscribed
      handsomely towards the Funds of a School established on a liberal principle,
      under the conduct of the Parish Priest and principal Parishioners. Such acts as
      these may be naturally expected from a branch of this patriotic family, and it
      is not for the purpose of bestowing well merited praise, but for the purpose of
      holding up the example to others, that we mention the circumstances of this
      evening.
