The Irish Master of the Rolls has had before him a curious case, under the will of a Mr. Charleton, who died in 1792, and left lands in the counties of Meath and Longford, the annual rents of which were to form a marriage portion of six guineas to any day. labourer's son of these counties, between fifteen and thirty, who married a day labourer's daughter between the same age and forty, with consent of parents, the marriage to be celebrated in the presence of the clergyman of the parish and the churchwardens. This fund, of which the members for the two counties and the high sheriffs for the time being are trustees, has been dis- tributed from time to time, but there was a surplus of 5OO1. in 1855, which the then Chancellor ordered to be used, as the will empowered, in making the same pro- vision for day-labourers on their marriage in the counties "adjacent" to Meath and Longford, and advertisement to be made by handbill in the districts of the existence of the fund. Notwithstanding, the surplus has now risen to above 3,5002. in Government stock, and another effort is to be made to carry out the wishes of the testator. The Master of the Rolls expressed regret that the provisions of the will were not better known.
