A curious instance of this natural phenomenon, took place on the 3d of March, on the lands of Enagh Monmore, in the west of the County Clare. A tract of bog, about a mile in circumference, was perceived to be deeply fissured, and shortly afterwards the whole mass commenced to move in an easterly direction, and continued in motion for twenty-four hours. In that period it accomplished a movement of about 80 perches to the east ol its former position, and the result has been the exposure of a quantity of bog timber, which was previously covered with peat to the depth of fifteen feet. The cause ot the land slip is supposed to have been an accumulation of water in a slough which oecupied the centre of the bog. It now covers a piece of ground from which the turf had been cut away.
