MARK OF RESPECT TO MR. JOHN HEATHER.—On the evening of Thursday last, Mr. John HEATHER was entertained by upwards of twenty gentlemen, his friends and acquaintances, at the Beresford Arms Hotel, previous to his removal from this city to an engagement in one of the most respectable mercantile firms in Belfast. The style in which the supper was served up reflected the highest credit on Mr. WILTSHIRE’s establishment. The wines were in abundance, and of a very superior quality. The utmost hilarity prevailed until the “witching hour” prompted good night, when the company separated, highly pleased with the evening’s entertainment–their pleasure, however, was not unmixed with regret in parting their much respected friend, whose active business habits and obliging disposition gained for him the esteem of all who had an opportunity of knowing his worth. Mr. HEATHER leaves Armagh in the enjoyment of the best wishes of its principal inhabitants.
ANOTHER CONVERT.—It is announced that Mrs. SEAGER, (wife of the Rev. C. SEAGER, Dr. PUSEY’s late assistant) has recently conformed to the Roman Catholic faith.
IRISH FLAX.—We have it on the authority of a respectable flax merchant of this city, Mr. THOS. ARMSTRONG, that 40s per stone was offered for a lot of Irish flax, in the possession of Mr. HUTCHISON, of Killycairn, the gentleman who has the patent scutching machinery, and who has been so successful in treating flax on the Courtrai system.
It affords us peculiar pleasure to announce that our esteemed friend, Mr. RICHARD HASTINGS FRITH, of Islandview, Enniskillen, has been appointed District Surveyor of the County Dublin, by the Board of Engineers nominated to examine candidates for that office. From what we know of Mr. FRITH’s Engineering attainments, we think the Board could not have selected a more qualified person to fill the important office. This appointment reflects the more credit on Mr. FRITH, when it is known that there were eighteen candidates examined.
NARROW ESCAPE.—As William Maunsell, Esq., of Killinure House, was out with the harriers on Saturday last, near Athlone, he charged what he thought was a four foot wall, but at the other side was a deep pit. Owing to the goodness of his mare his life was saved, for she made an extraordinary spring, and reached the bank with her fore feet, so that he was able to throw himself on the bank; she fell back into the pit, from which she was extricated, but much injured.
STATE OF THE COUNTY LEITRIM.
We understand that a meeting of magistrates of the County of Cavan, has been recently held, and an application made for additional police force for Leitrim, which appears to be in a disturbed state at present, several outrages have been committed therein. A letter in the Erne Packet, signed “An Observer,” details the particulars :–
“On the night of the 27th of September last, a party of men in number about forty or fifty, armed with guns, &c., attacked the house of Patrick and Hugh Magauran, of Clarbally, county of Cavan, and after treating them both in an unmerciful manner, by beating them on the backs and shoulders with white-thorn bushes, they swore them several times as to whether they had informed their landlord about the Repealers. September 26, a rockite notice was posted on the houses of James Kirwan, and Daniel Flanagan, of Leganamor, county Leitrim, threatening them to give up certain lands from which the former tenant was evicted for non-payment of rent. Kirwan and Flanagan were determined to resist them; but on the night of the 13th of October, an armed party attacked both houses, and swore the inmates on pain of death to give up the land in question. Hugh Tierney of Glebe, in same county, was served also with a rockite notice, and subsequently treated in a similar manner as the two last mentioned. November 4, a party of armed men attacked the houses of Thomas Hayes, of Tonyraven, John Brady, and Patt Curnien, of Adhlogher, in the county Cavan; from the former they carried off a sword, and swore him not to inform the Magistrates of the compliment paid him; the second they swore not to execute a decree he had obtained against a tenant for non-payment of a rent, and from the latter they carried off a gun. November 3, a threatening notice was posted on the house of Peter Kiernan, of Killywillin, and John Rainbird, of Newton, ordering them in the name of Captain Smart to deliver up possession of their holdings from which the former tenants were ejected for non-payment of rent. November 5, a notice was posted in this village, threatening any person who would attend an auction on the following day. In this last case the proprietor is a widow Hewitt, who resides in the County Fermanagh, and who turned out the former tenant for non-payment of rent, and proposed to sell the land by auction; but such is the state of affairs, that on the day of sale not one person would bid a farthing for the property, and to the widow’s astonishment, on repairing to the place she found her house levelled to the ground. Such sir, is the alarming condition of this country at present–and when the winter has commenced in such a manner, how may we expect it will end, if not checked in some resolute and determined manner. True, the police in Ballyconnell and Swanlinbar, are doing their best to come in with this lawless banditti, who, as I am informed, are seen every night in some part or other of this country. But what, may I ask, could five or six men do after being harassed travelling from their respective stations if perchance they would fall in with this party, when it is clearly stated that not less than 200 men well armed are seen moving together?”
THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS.
The municipal elections for the borough of Dublin commenced on Monday morning at nine o’clock, when the polling booths in each of the fifteen wards were thrown open to the burgesses, who came forward to supply the triennial vacancies in the office of alderman for the six northern wards, and to fill up the town councillorships vacant by the annual resignation of one municipal representative in each.

W.H. LILLYMAN, VETERINARY SURGEON, BEGS to announce that he has TWO PROFESSIONAL HORSE CLIPPERS at present employed at his Establishment, who can do their business in a proper manner. TERMS: If done by the regular clippers, … 15s. each. If done by the grooms of the Establishment, … 7s 6d each. Any horse sent early in the morning will be finished in the evening, and if required can be clipped in eight hours. All orders addressed to the Veterinary Institution, Scotch-street, Armagh, will be punctually attended to. December 2, 1844.
DERRY.—On Monday morning at nine o’clock, his Worship the Mayor held a court in the County Court-house, for an election by the burgesses to supply the vacancies, in pursuance of the Act, in the number of Alderman and of Town Councillors. On this occasion, John Munn, Esq., Town Councillor, was elected Alderman for the East Ward, in place of S. L. Crawford, Esq., resigned; James Thompson, of Ferryquay-street, Esq., Town Councillor, in place of Mr. Munn; Daniel Baird, Esq., Town Councillor, Alderman for the South Ward, in place of Connolly M’C. Lecky, Esq., resigned; and Archibald M’Corkell, Esq., Town Councillor for that Ward, in place of Mr. Baird. There was no other change in the Town Council, owing to the re-election of the former members.—D. Sentinel.
HARVEST HOME.—On Thursday last James Johnston, Esq., of Kinlough House, entertained his numerous labourers and many of his tenantry to a plentiful supply of roast beef, plum pudding, &c. Mr. Johnston, with the younger branches of the family, presided; and, after an evening spent in the utmost harmony, the company separated at twelve o’clock, delighted with the hospitality of their indulgent landlord.—Derry Sentinel.
Samuel Murray Going, Esq., will be continued in office as sub-sheriff by John Bayley, Esq., of Debsboro, D. L., high sheriff elect for the county Tipperary.
