Ireland

In announcing the return of Mr. Tracy. we are happy in being enabled to inform our readers, that, in addition to the formation of Auxiliary Societies in the northern counties of Tyrone, Armagh, Down, and Autrim, which we have already announced, Mr. Tracy succeeded in establishing an Auxiliary Missionary Society in the south, for the county of Cork: the Committee of which comprizes some of the most respectable characters in the city, and other parts of the county; among whom are John Anderson, Esq. of Fermoy, 'and W. Roberts, Esq. of Charleville, Bankers; by either of whom subscriptions are received, as well as by the Treasurer, James M‘Mullen, Esq. of Cork.

Mr. Tracy, on his return, begs to express the grateful sense which he entertains ot' the kindness which he experienced in all parts of Ireland from the Clergy and Christians of every church, which has laid him and the Missionary Society under lasting obligations—A hope is indulged, that the union which has at length been formed, under circumstances so auspicious, between the churches in 'England, Scotland, and Ireland, for the propagation of our common faith among the hundreds of millions of the heathen world, will be productive of no inconsiderable benefit to the united empire, as well as the world at.

1846 A picturesque handbook to Carlingford Bay 

Newry...There is a new church, still unfinished inside, on the Down- shire Road, a pretty little Gothic building. There is a Convent, of the order of Poor Clares, in High Street, attached to which is a neat chapel. The Convent was established in 1830, under the present Reverend Superioress, Mrs. Tracey ; and the following year two schools were opened, under the auspices and management of this religious community, which have since been placed under the Board of National Education, who grant £30 a year to two mistresses; but the Religious impart nearly all the instruction. The average attendance of children at these schools is 300 daily, hut sometimes it exceeds 400. The course of instruction comprises everything useful or needful to females in the humble and middle ranks of life, and fits them to discharge the social and religious duties of their state. It is delightful to witness the unwearied and assiduous kindness of these ladies to " teach the young idea how to shoot," and train them from their earliest childhood in the observances of a genuine piety. The proficiency of the children is remarkable, in reading, writing, geography, arithmetic, &c. The Convent of Poor Clares consists of a community of fifteen choir nuns and four professed lay sisters, under the control of a superioress: chaplain, the Rev. Mr. O'Neill. These ladies have bidden an unregretful adieu to the vanities of life, and dedicated their days to the service of God and of the poor. And here, in this religious seclusion, their thoughts are turned heavenward, and their only earthly cares are for those whom the world too little cares for—the hungry, the naked, the orphan, the uninstructed poor.
