12th November, 1825.  The fair of Bandon which was held on Tuesday last, was well supplied with Cows, Sheep and pigs which brought good remunerating prices.  The country people looked for more money than the purchasers were disposed to give, and until towarsd the close of the day, few cattle exchanged hands, when the holders seeing no disposition on the part of the victuallers etc in attenance to meet their demands, came to terms and except in a few instances, the fair ground was cleraed of all descriptions.  Bacon pigs brough very encouraging prices - Milch cows, 9 to 16 guineas - pigs 45s per cwt.  The country people were in the highest spirits on the occasion.

24th November, 1825.  Bandon Canal.  We understand that the most efficient measures hav been adopted for ascertaining the assistance that might be expected for carrying on this work.  There appears to have been some difference of opinion as to the adoption of a railway in preference to a canal; but after serveral consultations upon the subject, the latter has been finally determined upon.  Great exertions, will be made amongst the trading and manufacturing community at Bandon to arrange the plan, so as that in the course of next season, this important work shall have a commencement.  There can be non doubt entertained that the proprietors of the soil will contribute largtely to this useful undertaking.
