On Wednesday last the gentlemen engaged in the milling
and grain trade, in Armagh and its vicinity, met at a Dinner in
the Beresford Arms Hotel. There were present on the
occasion-- Osborne KIDD, Esq., Chairman; Joseph MATTHEWS,
Esq. (vice); W. T. KNOX, Caledon; Robert RIDDALL, Hugh
TREVOR, Mathew BELL, George BARNES, George SCOTT, jun. ;
James BENNETT, M. R. BELL, W. V. RYAN, Glasslough; Edward
James KIDD, Newry Esqrs., &c., &c. Mr. RICKARD, we
regret, was prevented attending in consequence of the serious
indisposition of a member of his family. Several appropriate
toasts were proposed and ably responded to, when the company
separated, pleased with the entertainment, furnished in Mr.
WILTSHIRE's usual good style.
