The Cattle Plague

An Irish paper notices the fact that one unexpected and curious effect of the Cattle Disease in England has been to raise the value of Goats to an extraordinary degree. These hitherto despised animals are now exported in considerable numbers from Ireland, and have been sold in several English Counties at from £4 to £5 each, the ordinary price being not over 10s.

The Late Mr. Geoghegan.

It is with extreme regret that we announce the death of Mr. T. A. Geoghegan, the Clerk of the Magistrates for St. Mary. He was a most excellent Public Officer, and had by his efficiency, assiduity, and courtesy, won the confidence and esteem of the Magistrates and the inhabitants of the parish.

The Hon. Alexander Lindo, the Custos of the Parish, paid the last tribute of respect to the memory of the lamented officer, by attending his remains to their final resting place. By force of a recent Act, Mr. Lindo, the Clerk of the Peace of the Parish, will now perform all the duties hitherto performed by the Clerk of the Magistrates, and will receive all the fees heretofore payable to that officer.

A Legal Query

To the Editor of the Gleaner and Daily Advertiser.

Mr. Editor,

Can a person, convicted of fraud and sentenced to four months imprisonment in the Common Jail, escaping through the clemency of the Judge, a longer penal servitude in the General Penitentiary, be legally kept in a Public situation if such be made known to the Executive?

Yours truly,

Falmouth, 29th May, 1866. M. A. N.

[A conviction for misdemeanour does not necessarily entail upon the party convicted, the loss of any public office he may happen to hold at the time; even in a case of felony, the conviction does not necessarily exclude from office, unless under an Act specially declaring the party incapable of continuing to hold an appointment]

Notice of Removal

Mrs. Panton, King Street, respectfully intimates that she has arranged for the premises belonging to the late Mrs. Hoyes directly opposite the Drug Establishment of Mr. John McCrindle. She intends removing into these on the 1st June next, where the Depot of the British and Foreign Bible Society and the Religious Tract Society will be carried on as usual.
