Mr. J. Pope Hennessy was beaten in Wexford by a

very large .majority, 761-2,642 for Mr. Kavanagh, to 1,881 for Mr. Hennessy. Mr. Kavanagh is a Protestant Tory and Mr. Hennessy a Roman Catholic Tory, so that even out of Ulster • it seems that a Pro- testant can carry a county election •against a popular Roman -Catholic, if he have at once landed interest and high character.
