Solicitor-General,and Dr. Sroek as Sergeant at Law. The following gentlemen
were called to the Bar:-

The Very Rev. Austin Killeen, Prior of the Augustinian Convent of
Galway, is at present engaged in making his annual quest, as a Catholic
Missionary, in the diocese of Kilfinora and Kilmacdough. The Very Rev.
Gentleman's eloquence is sublime and impressive, full of pathos and classic
effusion, calculated to hold captive the most enlightened audience. He
preached in one of the Churches of the Rev. Mr. Nelly, P.P., Lisdonavarna on
last Sunday, when both Priest and people were enraptured with the sublimity
of his discourse; as a proof of which the people shewed, by their liberal
contributions, how highly they appreciated it. Among some of the most
liberal on the occasion must be classed a few, viz:- Major Macnamara, £2;
Francis Macnamara, Esq, £1; Mrs. Francis Macnamara £1, John Cahill, Esq.,
£1, Michael Stritch, Esq., £1, Rev. Michael Nelly, P.P., £1, Mr. M. Doherty,
The Rev. Mr. Nelly entertained the Very Rev. Preacher, and a large
party purposely invited o meet him in the evening, at his house in a most
sumptuous manner.--Limerick Register.
