SCIENCE AND LITERATURE. A GOOD RIDDANCE OF A BAD WIFE; from Mr. CROFTON CROKER'S Legends of the Lakes. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 18 January 1830

SCIENCE AND LITERATURE. A GOOD RIDDANCE OF A BAD WIFE; from Mr. Ciiofton Crokeu's Legends of tht Lakes. 'There was once (says an Irish story-teller) a man named Dohagha Dee, who lived in a small cabin, not far from a forest, in tbe heart of Kerrr. Ireland at that time was not so bare as it is now, but was covered with great forests, insomuch that it is said a squirrel might have traveled from Din gle de Coiirh to the city of Cork without once touching the ground. Now, you must know, that Douagha was a very poor man, and had a scolding wife, so that, between his wife and his poverty, he could scarcely ever get a moment's peace. A man might perhaps, put up with a cross word now aud then from a woman if Ehe was pretty, or had any other good about her ; but, unluckily, Donagha's wife had nothing at all to recommend her ; for, besides being cross, she was as old aud as ugly as the black gentle man himser ; so you may well sunn™* n sH but a dog-aud-cattish sort of lifePPon he'B in the bea...
