      THE CONNAUGHT JOURNAL
      Galway, Thursday, September 30, 1824

      SWEARING IN OF CORPORATE OFFICERS
      Yesterday was the 29th and every eye was looking forward to the list of
      Officers for the coming year; but, what was their surprise, to find on
      answering in at all. All the Officers stand in state unto, save and except
      one, our late Deputy Mayor, Mr. Hardiman Burke. This Gentleman will not be
      the Deputy for the future. He has not resigned the Office- but he is out.
      Home comes this- Mr. Burke as Chief Magistrate, gave general satisfaction-
      he, to our knowledge, was always averse to the gross impositions at the
      Toll-gap, and invariably gave ample satisfaction to such as were agrieved.
      No Deputy has been sworn in. Mr. Daly is Mayor, and has, of course,
      undertaken to do the duty single-handed. But, how can he attend his duty at
      the seat of Parliament and his duty as Mayor of Galway? Why, if the
      Honorable Gentleman even possessed the ubiquity of Sir Boyle Roche's bird,
      it would be impossible for him to discharge the two-fold trust.- The
      Corporate Officers are -
      JAMES DALY, Esq. M.P., Mayor.
      JAMES O'HARA, Esq., Recorder.
      NICHOLAS BROWNE, and
      _______ WHATELEY, Esqrs., Sheriffs.
      Very Rev. JAMES DALY, Warden.


      THE ARMY
      Promotions, Exchanges and Resignation of Regimental Officers.
      No Officer shall be promoted to the rank of Captain, until he has been
      two years an effective Subaltern.
      No Officer shall be promoted to the rank of Major, until he has been
      six years in the service.
      No Regimental Officer, being actually under orders to join a regiment
      or battalion on Foreign service shall be permitted to exchange into another
      regiment, except such exchanges shall be solicited on the ground of extreme
      ill health, which must be certified by a Military Medical Officer. - In
      these medical certificates it must be clearly stated, whether the cause of
      the Officer's inability has, or has not, arisen subsequently to his having
      been placed under orders to join his regiment.
      Officers who give in the resignation of their Commissions, or who apply
      to retire on Half-pay with or without the difference, are not, in
      consequence, to quit their regiments, until they receive regular permission
      for that purpose.
      The Colonels or Commanding Officers of regiments, of Militia, when
      embodied, and serving under a General Officer's command, are required,
      previously to their submitting the resignation of any Officer to the Lord
      Lieutenant of their respective counties, to make a communication of their
      intention through the General Officer commanding the Brigade to the General
      Officer commanding the district.
      N.B. - It is not required that the communications on this subject shall
      be transmitted for the approbation of the Commander-in-Chief. When the
      General Officer commanding has no objection to the resignation being
      accepted, he is to signify the same by the Colonel or Commanding Officer of
      the Militia Regiment, who will then forward the resignation to the Lord
      Lieutenant.
      The 11th (North Devon) regiment of Infantry, has moved from Belfast to
      Templemore.
