On Sunday last, Mr. Thomas Riddell, of Felton Park, High Sheriff of Northumberlinid, attended public worship at the Catholic chapel in Carlisle. It is a singular circumstance, that there were also present Messrs. T. Dunn, the Sheriff of Neweiiiitle, and Jasper Gibson, Under-Sheriff of Northumberland. This is, probably, the first time since the Reformation that three Sheriffs have met in a Catholic' place 'of worship.
