MARK OF RESPECT TO MR. JOHN HEATHER.--On
the evening of Thursday last, Mr. John HEATHER was
entertained by upwards of twenty gentlemen, his
friends and acquaintances, at the Beresford Arms Ho-
tel, previous to his removal from this city to an engage-
ment in one of the most respectable mercantile firms in
Belfast. The style in which the supper was served up
reflected the highest credit on Mr. WILTSHIRE's estab-
lishment. The wines were in abundance, and of a
very superior quality. The utmost hilarity prevailed
until the "witching hour" prompted good night,
when the company separated, highly pleased with the
evening's entertainment--their pleasure, however, was
not unmixed with regret in parting their much re-
spected friend, whose active business habits and obliging
disposition gained for him the esteem of all who had
an opportunity of knowing his worth. Mr. HEATHER
leaves Armagh in the enjoyment of the best wishes of
its principal inhabitants.
