MAD DOGS

Two dogs belonging to MR. JAMES HUNTER, of Liskinbuoy, about one mile from this town, were shot on Sunday last, in a state of madness; and had it not been for the presence of mind of Mr. Hunter, the consequences might have been serious to him. The first shot having merely wounded the animal, he broke from the chain, and pursued him. Mr. Hunter lost no time in again charging a pistol, and when the dog made a rush at him, he fired the contents of the pistol into his mouth, when the animal fell, and with the assistance of some other persons, killed him. We understand, a great number of dogs have been bitten in the neighbourhood by the same animal; and we would seriously recommend those persons who keep dogs, to chain them instantly, as the consequences of neglect might be dreadful. A man of the name of MARTIN, who lives about three miles from this town, had a cow bitten by a dog four months ago, which was shot last week in a state of hydrophobia.

SIR JOHN JAMES BURGOYNE, the Provost of this town, on hearing of the above, gave orders yesterday that all dogs found in our streets unclogged should be shot, and the owners fined. We understand, the Police have got directions to proceed to Liskinbuoy, to destroy all dogs found at large

SINGULAR ROBBERIES

About three weeks ago, two Bee Hives were stolen from the garden of MRS. HOOD, of Carrygullon, and a few days ago two were also taken from the garden of MR. WILLIAM HUNTER, of Cavanalee. We would recommend all persons to whom honey may be offered for sale, to be particular in their enquiries after the persons who may offer it as such plunder, if not closely watched, may discourage the practice of rearing Bees altogether. We understand, a Reward, respectably signed, will be offered for the apprehension of the thieves

September 22 1835 Died at Ramelton [Co. Donegal], on Thursday last, by the Rev. Mr. Reid, WALTER SCOTT, ESQ., of this town, to FANNY, eldest daughter of DR. HUNTER, of Ramelton
July 26 1836 Died on Thursday evening, the 21st instant, at Ballykeel, near Nn. Stewart, in the 46th year of his age, MR. CHARLES HUNTER. He was a consistent and zealous member of the Methodist Society from his youth, and a steady but humble follower of his Divine Master in his life and death: and in him the language of inspiration, “mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.” was fully verified. His premature decease is deeply regretted by a large circle of friends and relatives
