MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 7 January 1843

MISCELLANEOUS. RELIQUEs.-A gorget of pure gold, as worn by"the old Irish chieftains, was found by a poor woman near the church of Kilken ny West. It was purchased by Mr. Henry Nolan of Athlone, for £25. A breast-plate of the same material has been also found. ANCIENT CoINs.-There has been disco yered in the chapel-yard of Heyworth, (a curacy annexed to Jarrow, in the county of Durham, the -residence of the Venerable Bede) an earthen vessel containing a num ber of copper stgcaa. The coins are executed with sufficientneatiiess, in the usualc harac ter of the Saxon-Northumbrian mintage. The obverse exhibits a plain short cross with the legend -ECFRID REX - : the reverse has a similar cross surrounded by rays, and has LVX (lux), a symbol and inscription' allusive to the diffusion of our holy religion in the kingdom of Northumberland. These coins precede any other known issue of the Northumberland mint nearly one hundred and fifty years, and it is a very. probable conjecture, that they w...

POLICE REPORTS. Jan. 2.-John Wheeler appeared to answer the complaint of John White, Esq., of Bryan's Creek, for leaving his service previous to the expiration of the time specified in an agree- ment. It appeared from the testimony of Mr.   White, that the defendant had been engaged as a bullock driver until the conclusion of the wool season, at the rate of £40 a-year and rations; that after the first trip to Portland he thought proper to leave, and engage with another em- ployer at Pigeon Ponds, by which conduct Mr. White had lost both time and money. Wheel- er, in his defence, stated that he could not either read or write, and that he always sup- posed the agreement to be merely a weekly en- gagement at a certain sum per week. The Bench fined the defeindant £2, and 6s. 6d., costs, with the forfeiture of all wages due. Jan, 3.-Joseph Ellis, Alexander Hutton, (in the service of the Messrs.
