On Saturday last, our esteemed and venerated Bishop received into the
above Convent two sisters of the order. The ladies are Miss Walsh, daughter
of Mr. James Walsh of this town, and Miss Galway--and the usual ceremonies
on such occasions were gone through with great solemnity, and created much
interest in the minds of the numerous neighbors.

Captain John Brice Blake, of the 47th regiment, son of the late Sir
John Blake, Bart. of Menlo Castle, has retired from the service.

On Sunday, the 18th instant, the new church in Roundstone, was opened
for public worship, by the Rev. Joseph Fisher, of this town.

On Tuesday, Major-General Sir W. Parker Carroll, K.C.H. arrived at
Lochcooter Castle, the seat of Lord Viscount Gort, and inspected a company
of the 36th depot, under command of Captain Adams, stationed at that town.
The Major-General expressed his high satisfaction at the very efficient
state in which he found that detachment. The Major-General was entertained
at dinner by the Noble Viscount, and a large party invited to meet him, as
also the officers of the detachment. On Saturday, Sir W. Parker Carroll
arrived at Clare Castle, where he inspected the depot 26th Regiment, under
the command of Captain De Lacy. The appearance of the men, and the high
order in which they appeared on parade, called forth the unqualified
approbation of the Major-General.
