REJOICINGS AT SESKINORE.
SAMUEL M’CLINTOCK, ESQ.-
This estimable gentleman, to whom to whom the Ses-
kinore property (left him by his uncle, the late
George Perry. Esq.), has devolved on the death
of Mrs. Perry, visited Seskinore on Thursday
week: he was met a considerable way out of the
town by a joyous and delighted tenantry, who
took the horses from the carriage, and drew it to
the lodge amidst the most enthusiastic cheers.
Mr. M’Clintock spent some time at the house
of his relative, Mr. Sinclair Perry, Esq., and returned
by Balligawley same evening, but not before or-
dering abundance of refreshments for the congre-
gated thousands. After night tar barrels blazed
in all directions, and an amateur band delighted
The people by the performance of several ap-
propriate tunes. Mr M’Clintock was accompan-
ied by his brother-in-law, Captain. Blake Knox,
and Counsellor Rutledge. From all we have
heard Mr. M’Clintock is well worthy the re-
ception he met from a happy and respectable
tenantry. He is spoken of by all classes who
had the pleasure of his acquaintance in the
strongest terms. We hope soon to have the
gratification of hearing that he has come to
reside on the estate.- “Tyrone Constitution”
