He had been in Mr. DEVEREUX’S employment for upwards of 40 years. The poor old man was admitted on Wexford. John FAHEE applied for admission, and said for the last 10 years he had lived from “Post to Pillar”. Admitted on Union. Johanna PIGGOT and her three children were admitted on Taghmon. She had been deserted by her husband, who at present is in Liverpool. James WALSH, who had been refused admission on the previous Saturday, applied again, and said he could not get employment. The Chairman told him that there was plenty of employment in the country, but from his very bad conduct whilst in the house, no one would employ him. He ought to try and conduct himself properly, and not to be living in idleness here. A strong young fellow like him ought to be ashamed of himself. Mr. SINNOTT, As farmers would not like to employ him, he ought to try road work. The Master said he was a very good stone breaker. He always broke whatever quantity he was ordered. Admitted on Kilbride. The Clerk appealed to WALSH to try and make for himself a character, and told him if he did, that he (the clerk) would try and get him employment outside. WALSH thanked the Board and promised amendment. The wife and family of MURPHY, who was committed to gaol for sheep stealing, were all admitted on Wexford. Ellen SUMMERS, from Bannow, enceinte, applied to be admitted, and on being asked who was the father of her child, said, O, Musha, he was only a poor servant boy.
