DEATH OF MRS. DUNBAR
This distressing event
took place at the Palace, Armagh, on Monday morning last. The immediate cause of death was brain
fever, brought on, it is reported, by the shock occa
sioned by the sudden death of the late Marquis of
Waterford. Dr. Cuming was in instant attendance
upon the deceased lady, and Sir Henry Marsh had also
been called in, but medical skill proved unavailing.
Mrs. Dunbar was the wife of George Dunbar, Esq.,
of Woburn, and niece of his Grace the Lord Primate,
to whom she was much attached, and with whom she
and Mr. Dunbar generally resided for a good part of
each year. By all who knew her, Mrs. Dunbar was
much esteemed for her gentleness and amiability, and
much sympathy is felt both for Mr. Dunbar and his
Grace in the sad and sudden bereavement. The
funeral will take place on next Wednesday, and the
remains are to be interred at Woburn. The Messrs.
Frizelle, of Armagh, have charge of the funeral arrangements.
REV. J. FLAVELLE
It is said that the Rev. J. Flavelle, rector of
Loughgall, and formerly tutor to the late Marquis
of Waterford, is to get the parish of Mullabrack,
vacant by the resignation of Lord John [sic]
Beresford, now Marquis of Waterford.

THE DUKE OF MANCHESTER'S ESTATE
TO THE EDITOR OF THE NORTHERN WHIG
SIR, I have refrained from sooner noticing the
reports in your papers of the 22d and 20th March of
the proceedings at the Bluestone and Portadown
meetings, in order to give ample time for the "memorials" (mentioned in the resolutions) "to be pre-
sented to his Grace;" but, finding they have not yet
been forwarded, I can no longer keep silent, and,
therefore, request you will have the goodness to give
insertion to this letter in your columns.
It is not true as stated in your reports, that " the
country is at present in an excited state,"--that I, " or
the other officials of the duke," used any influence,
directly or indirectly, to prevent those who chose from
attending the meetings--or that I, "circulated the
false and malicious libel on that part of the country,
that I was in the habit of receiving daily, or weekly,
threatening letters, for the purpose of sheltering my-
self from the results of my official acts," &c.
As to the case of Lavery (the only referred to)
the facts are:--He paid, against arrears, &c., when
he got occupation, in 1851 and 1852, the sum of £107.
Legal proceedings were lately taken against him,
there being two years' rent due, and on quitting pos-
session he was allowed, in money and rent remitted,
£137 4s., although he never made improvements in
buildings or otherwise. He has since written to me,
saying he omitted asking compensation for eighty-
seven perches of drains he alleges he made, and for
lime, most of which was put on the land seven or
eight years ago. Further comment on this case I
consider unnecessary. His statement that I was of-
fered £15 an acre is untrue. It contains 18A. 3R. 3P.,
and is now being let to others at Lavery's rent, and
for £5 per acre, by which his grace loses £43 9s.
I beg to say I shall not reply to any further articles
which may appear in your paper on this subject.--
Your obedient servant, J. S. O'BRIEN.

for dry cattle. The supply of pork was large and well

strippers were in brisk demand, and others of inferior
quality met ready purchasers at their full value.
Young stock were also in lively request. Of pigs
there was a large market. The demand for weaned
suckers and young stores was very animated. High
prices were offered for some pigs nearly ready for
slaughtering. This fair is now becoming an important mart for the farmers and dealers in the neighbourhood, and is likely to increase rapidly.
