On Friday last, a great number of the trades-people went some distance out of town, with a band and colours, in expectation of meeting Counsellor O’Connell, and intending to draw his carriage into town.
Several of them were tastefully dressed, and carried poles with large loaves of bread on them. They marched in procession through the town, and the orderly manner in which they conducted themselves was very commendable.
After waiting a considerable length of time on the way, they returned about seven o’clock in the evening, when they played a few enlivening airs and retired peaceably to.their homes.
