On Wednesday, the 22d instant, an important and influential
meeting was held in the Court-house of Charlemont, pursuant
to public notice, for the purpose of adopting measures to bring
before the Grand Jury of the county of Armagh the necessity of
forming a new line of road from Charlemont to Kineary--a line
which would tend not only to the prevention of loss of life, by
obviating the present dangerous path, but open an insulated
district of country, filled with a dense population, and remarka-
ble for its feritility and manufacturing capabilities. Among the
gentlemen present were Colonel Verner, M.P., the Rev. John
Leech, Incumbent of Moy, the Rev. M. Coyne, P.P. of Clonfeale,
Wm. Byers, Galbraith Johnston, J. Ashmur Lawson,
Thomas Nepean Molesworth, Thomas Dawson, and Thomas
Francis Hawkins, Esq. Messrs. David Barry, Wm. Smart,
Robt Corrigan, O. M'Anespy, J. Moreland, R. Moore, &c.
On the motion of the Rev. John Leech, seconded by G.
William Byers, Esq., late Portrieve of Charlemont, was
called to the chair, and Mr. J. W. Hanna requested to act as
The Rev. W. Leech, in proposing the first resolution,
adverted in eloquent language to the awful sacrifice of life
occasioned by the present dangerous pathway from Charlemont to
Kineary, averaging one death every year, and two during each
of the last two years, and that such a mortlity was deeply to
be deplored by every human mind. To see men hurried out of
life, perhaps unprepared, was truly awful; families suddenly
deprived of their only support, and parents bereaved of their
beloved children, rendered it the imperative duty of the public
to adopt some measure to prevent so fatal a recurrence as the
death of Mullan, who had so lately perished--another victim
travelling this path. It could not be expected but that persons
fatigued with the toils of work, would rather hazard this peri-
lous path, than travel the circuitous road by the Callan bridge;
he therefore thought it was only necessary to mention these
circumstances in order to enlist the sympathies and charities of the
Grand Jury in their support.
J. Ashmur Lawson, Esq., seconded the resolution in a few
but appropriate observations.
The second resolution was proposed by the Rev. Mr. Coyne,
who dwelt at great length on the necessity of forming a new
road to Kineary, and stated that six townlands, having an area
of 2312A. 1R. 2P., and containing a population of 2063 persons
in the barony of O'Neiland West, were attached to the parish
of Clonfeale, the members of the Church of England and Roman
Catholic Church, residing in which district, were obliged
to attend their respective places of worship in Moy, from which
they were separated by the rivers Blackwater and Callan; and
that although the pathway through Charlemont bog was not
more than half a mile, the high road to the nearest portion of
that district was three miles round, and part five miles; the
consequence was, these poor people were in a great manner
deprived of religious worship, unless by running the fearful risk
of travelling a dangerous path, the perils of which had been so
well described by Mr. Leech. He concluded by saying, that
the formation of a new line would not only tend to the security
of life, but also conduce to the progress of religion and morals,
by enabling the people to attend their religious worship.
The resolution was seconded by T. Nepean Molesworth, Esq.
Galbraith Johnston, Esq., proposed the third resolution,
nominating a Deputation to prepare and present a memorial to the
Grand Jury of Armagh on the subject, which resolution was
seconded by Thomas Dawson, Esq.
The next resolution was proposed by Mr. R. Corrigan, and
seconded by T. Francis Hawkins, Esq.
A long and animated conversation then arose between Col.
Verner, Messrs. Leech, Coyne, Johnston, and D. Barry (the
latter of whom supported the projected line in an able speech,)
as to the expense and practicability of the road, and the possibility
of so diverging the contemplated line from Portadown, to
embrace the object of the meeting, at the conclusion of which
The Rev. Mr. Leech proposed the thanks of the meeting to
Colonel Verner, for his attendance and judicious advice, which
was seconded by the Rev. Mr. Coyne, and carried with enthu-
Mr. Byers was then moved from the chair, and Mr. Robert
Corrigan of Moss Spring called thereto; and on the motion of
Colonel Verner, seconded by Mr. David Barry, the unanimous
thanks of the meeting were voted to Mr. Byers for his dignified
conduct as chairman.
We are authorised to state that W. M'GEOGH BOND, Esq.,
of the Argory, who was unable to attend the meeting, has
expressed his hearty approval of the intended line, considering it
would be a general benefit to the country.

On Sunday last a melancholy death occurred in the townland of Craddean, within two miles of Enniskillen [Co Fermanagh]. A poor woman named SHEAHAN
went to mass on the above day, leaving at home a child about
five years old, and on her return she found it burned almost to
ashes ; nothing remaining of the poor child only one leg and
an arm. The child was left sitting at a few coals where it is
supposed its clothes took fire. On the following day HUGH
CULLUM Esq., Coroner, held an inquest, and a verdict of
"accidental death" was returned.

AUCTION SALES ROOM
Mr. J. T. ANDREWS
TAKES leave respectfully to inform the Public, that he is
fitting up a Sales'-Room, at 28, UPPER ENGLISH-STREET,
(opposite the Tontine,) where he will dispose of by Auction,
on stated days, or by Private Sale, if so instructed, Goods and
Property of every description. The want of such a medium of
disposing of Goods and Property in this City, by persons not
wishing to be troubled with sales at their own residences, and
for other causes, has been much felt; and it is by the desire
and advice of some of his most particular friends and patrons
that Mr. A. is opening the above concern. Persons sending
Property to this Establishment will find that every exertion
shall be made to dispose of it to the best advantage, and parti-
cular attention shall be paid to Commissions to buy Goods for
parties who cannot themselves attend at Sales.
Mr. ANDREWS takes this opportunity of returning his grate-
ful thanks to the Public for the very liberal support he has
received, (having been favoured with the conducting of the
principal Sales that have taken place in Armagh and neighbour-
hood,) since he commenced the business of an Auctioneer. He
refers with confidence to those for whom he has done business,
for the manner in which he conducts and settles the Sales with
which he is intrusted.
Notice of the first day of Sale will be given in a future
