At Loughrea, the Lady of Edward Hyor, Esq. Manager of the National
Bank, of a son.
At Mount Pleasant, Roscommon, the Lady of John Devenish, Esq., of a son
and heir.
At Windsor Terrace, London, the wife of Barry O'Hara, Esq. of Cahill
House, in this county, of a daughter.

On Thursday, the 28th instant, at Cottage, in this county, by the Rev.
T.E. Gill, P.P., John Conolly, Esq. Barnaville, to Mary, eldest daughter of
John Ryan, Esq. of Cottage, in this County.
On the 28th instant, Ambrose Rush, Esq. of Dominick-street, in this
town, to Eliza, eldest daughter of the Rev. R. Collis, Glebe-house,
Kilconnell, in this County.

On Saturday, the 24th instant, at the Main-guard street, in this town,
Mrs. Anne Lally, wife of Mr. Thomas Lally, Officer of Excise. Through life
Mrs. Lally maintained the highest character for integrity, steadiness of
conduct, attention to the duties of her home, and especially that religious
virtue which crowns the happiness of a mainly and secures the respect of
all. Cut away almost in the bloom of life, and while in the midst of good
offices, her death created a melancholy void to her husband, her children,
and many affectionate relations; and even amongst those unaccustomed with
her by ties of kindred the sensation of sorrow and sympathy was far beyond
that exhibited on other occasions. Monday evening her remains were interred
in the family vault, at Fort-Hill; her funeral was attended by many of the
most respectable inhabitants, a greater number than we have seen together
for a long time of wealthy citizens, and hundreds of the poor to whom she
had been a benefactress, showing how much she was esteemed, beloved, and
regretted and suggesting to those whom nature obliged to lament her
departure, the consoling reflection that a life approved of by the
distressed as well as the exalted, betokens eternal life in Heaven.
At Paisley Baracks, suddenly, William Dunn, Esq., Lieutenant 12th
Regiment. The deceased was thirty years in the service, and engaged in the
battles of Vittoria, Pyrenees, (where he was wounded), Nivelle, and Niva.
A few days since, at Corondon, in this County, Miss Sarah Dowdall,
daughter of Michael Dowdall, Esq., a young lady of the most amiable manners
and conciliating disposition, a pious and exemplary christian; she was
endeared by all who enjoyed the pleasure of her acquaintance, and her death
is a source of deep regret to her relatives and friends.
