On Sunday (22d instant) the first mass was celebrated by the Rev. Mr.
CLANCY, in New Chapel of Upper Grange, on the extremity of the Parish of
Tullow. It stands on that part of the Earl of Besborough's estate
usually termed Slaney quarter, adjoining Killerig; that Nobleman having
granted; by free gift, with that generosity and beneficence, which has
always distinguished him, an acre of ground free for the site of the
building, and a School-house; this is intended as a Chapel of Ease for
the accommodation of the extreme Districts of the Parishes of Tullow,
Rathvilly, and Bennekerry, which, from their remote situation, being
very distant from their respective Parish Chapels, laboured under very
great inconveniences with respect to the hearing of Mass on Sundays and
It was to remedy this inconvenience that the Right Rev. Dr.
DOYLE granted his special license and approval to the erection of the
present building.--Carlow Post.
Dec. 30.- We are sorry to hear that there has been a very serious
affray, between the Police stationed at Borris and some of the country
people.óWe have not yet heard the particulars.
We are, however, sorry
to observe, that the common people have lately assumed a degree of
insolence, which is by no means warrantable; and carriers, returning
from market, are, we understand, in the habit of drawing their cars
across the road, for the purpose of impeding gigs and jaunting-cars.
