=========================

We are happy to find a Subscription is about to be entered into for the purpose of ornamenting with cut stone the intended Bridge, over the Black-staff river, on the new line of road from Malone Turnpike into Arthur-street; and have no doubt but that public spirit which the inhabitants of this town and neighbourhood are so much distinguished for, will be fully evinced on this occasion; particularly as it must so much tend to the embellishment of the principal entrance to the town.

On Friday morning, a man named Murray Lowry was found dead at the side of a ditch, on the road between Ballywalter and Ballyobigan. -- It is supposed he perished through the inclemency of the weather.

=========================

The recent aggression of certain nocturnal revellers in Mill-street, who wantonly destroyed the lamps that are lighted up only for the convenience and safety of the inhabitants of the town, yesterday morning, will probably become the subject of legal prosecution, as our vigilant and offended Magistrates are making every effort to discover those gentlemen who have so far lost sight of decorum as to violate the public tranquility, at an hour devoted to rest and peace.
