REFORMATION MEETING: A meeting of the Reformation Society took place at Omagh on Tuesday last, according to appointment, and the Chair was taken by the Chief Sheriff at 12 o’clock. The speakers on the Protestant side were the REV. MR. ATHILL, CAPTAIN GORDON, REV. MR. TOMES, and the REV. GIDEON OUSELEY, Methodist Irish Missionary. The Chair was also addressed in turn by three Roman Catholic Priests, who requested that the Meeting should be adjourned sine die, which was overruled and it was adjourned till next day at twelve o’clock, when the business of the Society was to have been proceeded with. The majority of the persons who attended were Roman Catholics, who listened with great attention, and all separated in the most peaceable and orderly manner. (Enniskillen Reporter)
