[Relief Funds remain unaccounted for]

We have been told that in a certain county in Connaught (which our informant declines at present to mention), £40,000 of the Relief Funds remain unaccounted for. –Limerick and Clare Examiner.

It is stated, whether rightly or wrongly we know not, that something of the same kind has occurred at Skibbereen, and that the sum unaccounted for is £2,000. We should not allude to the subject had not the rumour been for some days in circulation. It is said that an investigation is ordered, and that a government officer will come down to superintend it. It may be, after all, that the supposed error results from miscalculation in Dublin, for we have heard that the books of the Board are in a state of almost inextricable confusion. –Constitution.
