The Cork Examiner, 4 February 1846
Present—J. Ahern, T. Collins, J. Bourke, C. Haines, W. B. Williams, R. B. Barry, P. Corbett, R. Winn.
JAMES CARMICHAEL, Esq., in the Chair.
In consequence of the spread of Fever, the Commisioners are getting the houses in the back-lanes white-washed, the lanes repaired and cleaned—two of the Commissioners having undertaken to watch over the appointed districts.
   Mr. R. B. Barry brought under the notice of the Board a Bill brought before Parliament by the Agricultural Society, professing to regulate the Tolls of Markets in Ireland, and putting them under the control of the Grand Juries. Mr. Barry explained the objects of the Bill, and contended that if such a Bill became Law, it would ruin the country ; he would therefore move, that as the Cork Corporation, and Committee of Merchants, had appointed Committees to oppose the Bill, this Board would also petition against it ; with that view he moved that the subject be referred to the Tolls Committee who would put themselves in communication with the Cork Gentlemen.
   Mr. T. Collins seconded it.
   Messrs. C. Haines, P. Corbett, W. B. Williams, J. Bourke, and the Chairman, having concurred in Mr. Barry's view of the propriety of opposing the Bill the subject was unanimously referred to the Tolls Committee.

   MAN DROWNED.—This day, about 12 o'clock, as two men named Halloran and Connell were plying at the head of the Abbey River (a branch of the Shannon) a sand boat which was too heavily laden, a wave swept over her side, and she immediately sunk. Connell swam to the shore and was saved, but his comrade was unfortunately drowned, leaving a wife and family to deplore their irreparable loss.

   The inhabitants of Mountmellick were again called upon last Wednesday at an early hour to witness one of those fanatical performances of the White Quakers, three of whom came here from Dublin with the body of a female (a member of one of the most respectable families in the town), for the purpose of burying it in the ground appropriated by the white sect. However, the relatives of the deceased took the body from the trio, and consigned it to the grave of her forefathers. Only imagine three men clad in linen fabric at this season, without hats or stockings, and with “flowing hair and patriarchal beards, standing the pelting of the pitiless storm.” One of them, while endeavouring to keep possession of the body, slipped into the mire, and sat as calmly as if enjoying luxury ; and when asked if such did not damp the heat of his religion, his answer was, “he would sit til the Lord raised him.”
   TREASURE FOUND.—On Monday last, as some men were digging in a field belonging to Mr. Rody Kennedy, of Borriskone, quite convenient to the town, they dug up upwards of a thousand pieces of coin ; the large pieces were broader than a shilling, but much thinner, they were coined in Henry the IVth's time, and passed for a groat in those days. Seven of them weigh one ounce, the small pieces are about the size of a sixpenny piece, but quite thin ; they appear to be the silver penny of Henry II. The silver pieces were not more than five or six inches under the surface of the earth, and must have lain there for centuries. —Nenagh Guardian.

The Cork Examiner, 6 February 1846
   The losses announced during the last week have been truly appalling, several American packet ships being among the number wrecked in crossing the Atlantic, with the loss of all hands. The first on the list is that of the Montreal, a fine new ship, 345 tons burthen, a trader between London and Quebec, which was lost during a snow storm on the night of the 14th of last month, on shore near Cape Chest, and not one belonging to her was left to tell the tale. The wreck, when discovered, was fast breaking up, her masts were gone, and her hull had parted in two. On shore the bodies of the captain, wife, and child were found, the latter being clasped in its mother's arms. Four other bodies were afterwards discovered entangled in the wreck. They have all been buried in one grave. The vesel was laden with flour and other articles.
   The next melancholy affair is that of another packet ship, supposed to be the Saxon, bound to London, lost with all hands. The ship, which has a large amount of insurance on her at Lloyd's, was 367 tons burden, and left Boston, to where she belonged, on the 13th of last month, manned with a crew of 20. She was last seen on the 17th, and her destruction is supposed to have occurred about the 19th, on a reef of rock called the Ledges, near Red Head, as her wreck was passed by the Stamboul, from Smyrna, on the 24th, 25 miles N.N.W. of St. George's Shoal.
   Another loss took place on a field of ice, the particulars of which are thus described :—The brig Laurel [sic¹] left Quebec on the 29th of December, with a cargo of 400 barrels of flour and 28 of butter. On arriving off Cacona, on the banks of Newfoundland, she was met by a large field of ice, and every effort to steer clear of it proved abortive. The ship becoming fixed in it, she was shortly driven ashore on Green Island, where she immediately became a wreck. The crew suffered severely for three days. The barque Universe, of Boston, was lost under similar circumstances ; fortunately the crew were saved.
   The ship Cambridge, from Liverpool, on the 23d of December, saw a vessel in distress, which proved to be the Lord Lynedoch, of London, in a sinking state. They took off the crew, thirty-two in number, who were in a dreadful state. The vessel foundered shortly afterwards. The East India Company have received information of the total loss of one of the company's war sloops, named Coote, commanded by Lieutenant J. S. Grieve. The disaster happened on the 3d November last, on a reef of rocks opposite Calicut, the vessel at the time being on an expedition to the Malabar coast.
   The brig Merlin, of Newcastle, was totally destroyed by fire on the 3d instant. She was laden with wine and fruit, and within twelve hours after leaving Oporto Bar, she caught fire. The captain and crew were soon forced to take to the boat, and abandon the vessel. They were afterwards picked up by a foreign schooner, which conveyed them to Gibraltar.
   On the books are also reported the total loss of the ship City of Shiras, in the Mindora Sea, with forty persons drowned ; and also the wreck of the Gustave Edouard, a French Indiaman, 650 tons burden ; and another vessel name not exactly known—both attended with melancholy results.
   LOSS OF THE CHARLES.—The Eastern Province Herald, Cape Town, of December 10, states that intelligence had been received from the Bird Islands, by the Elizabeth Ann, of the loss of the schooner Charles, of Guernsey, loading guano, on the 15th of November, in consequence of a severe gale of wind. She had about 140 tons of guano on board. All the lives on board were saved.
   The schooner Zilli, Barnes master, from St. Ives to Civetta Vecchia, was totally dismasted off the rock of Lisbon on the 17th instant. She was taken in tow by the British schooner Carden, but tremendous gales having come on from the westward, it was found necessary to abandon her. The master and crew, five in number, were brought to Lisbon on the 19th instant, by the Carden.
   REPORTED LOSS OF AN EMIGRANT SHIP.—LLOYDS. FEB. 2. —A passenger on board the Sons of Commerce, Williams, from Hobart Town to London, arrived at Pernambuco, December 21, reported that a vessel with emigrants, bound to Port Philip, supposed to be the Cataraque, from Liverpool, had been totally wrecked on the Harbinger Reefs, at the west entrance to Bass Straits, and that 414 persons had been drowned. The news had reached Hobart Town on the 24th of September, the day previous to the sailing of the Sons of Commerce.

   About 3 o'clock on Sunday morning it was discovered that the Jane, a schooner of Alderman Mulcahy's, and which had been on the Patent Slip for repairs, was on fire. The fire was subdued, but amongst those who assisted in this praiseworthy object—indeed, the second, we understand, who entered the burning vessel, was Thos. Smith, a youth of 18 years of age, and an apprentice of Mr. Bernard McNulty. He fell through the hatchway into the hold, a height of 16 feet, and his head coming in contact with the chain, he was killed on the spot. When the surgeon who attended him removed the scalp over the spot where he received the wound, the fractured piece of skull dropped out. His ribs were also broken, and he sustained other severe injuries. He has been since interred, and his father, who lives in Dublin, has arrived here in a state of distraction. Mr. M'Nulty speaks of the young man in the strongest terms of praise. He had been up reading in the factory at the time, and was attracted to the spot by the ringing of the fire bell. It is stated that an old woman who was in charge of the place made an effort to prevent his going out, but he pushed her aside, and said, even his mother should not prevent him. Thus did the noble youth fall a victim to his generous spirit.—Limerick Reporter.

   Lieutenant Friend presents his compliments to the Editor of the Cork Examiner, and requests his insertion of the annexed useful information which is of much importance, to be generally known to intending emigrants.
   Government Emigration Office,
         Cork, Feb. 11, 1846.
Colonial Land and Emigration Office, 9, Park-st.,
Westminster, Feb. 4, 1846.
   SIR—I am directed by the Board to acquaint you that accounts have been received from New Brunswick, from which it appears that there is little prospect of employment for emigrants in that province during the coming season ; and I am to request that you will take every opportunity of making this information known to intending emigrants on your station.
I am, Sir, your obedient servant,            
J. WALCOTT, Secretary.    
   Lieut. Friend, R.N., &c., Cork.

   CAUTION TO SEAMEN.—David Murphy, a seaman lately belonging to the Brig “Hibernia,” of Wexford, William Neville, Master, was brought before the Mayor, Sir Benjamin Morris Wall, a few days since, and sentenced to three weeks imprisonment, the last week at hard labour, under the 7th and 8th sec., v. 112, for having deserted from the vessel at St. John's New Brunswick, in the month of November last. —Waterford Freeman.
   SPANISH WHEAT.—There has been just delivered at this port a cargo of extremely fine wheat from Cadiz (being the first that we remember direct from Spain into this vast emporium of corn). It weighed 64lbs. to the bushel, and was very dry. The Jane Pope, of Bridport, Captain Symonds, brought the cargo for Messrs. Grutt, Helmsing, and Co., and the captain reports that twenty-three other cargoes were loading at Cadiz when he left.—Hull Paper.

   There were 13 Roman Catholics and 16 Protestants admitted on yesterday as attorneys in the Court of Exchequer.—Freeman.
A MOST melancholy suicide occurred on board the brig Countess of Airtie, which left this port on Thursday last, bound for Sligo. On the same evening, when off Ballycotton, the master, Captain Brand, came on deck, and after talking to the steer-man for a few minutes, suddenly sprang overboard. The vessel was immediately put round, but every attempt to save the unfortunate man proving ineffectual, the crew determined on returning to Cork, where they arrived on Friday evening. It is supposed that some irregularities of which he had been guilty of while in this port, induced the rash man to commit this deplorable act.

TRALEE SATURDAY—One of the Carved Stone Urns which surmount the entrance-gate to the Roman Catholic Chapel of this town, was maliciously broken last night, or rather early this morning. There must have been some exertion used in displacing the ornament, as it was rivetted with iron, and about ten feet from the ground. It has been broken to fragments from the fall. Surmise is busy as to the perpetrators. In fact, the names of persons are mentioned who, it is said, can bring the offence home to certain fashionable parties ; but it would evidently be premature to descend to particulars just now, as conjecture will be set to rest in a few days.
THE potatoe [sic] market here to-day was more steady than the last. A decline of price was visible. Oats were freely bought at 10d. per stone, and shipping wheat at 2s. 6d. per peck of 2½.

AN Inquest was held this day at the North Infirmary on the body of a man named John Sullivan, a watchman, who was in the employment of the Cork Steam Packet Company, who accidentally fell into the river on Saturday night last, and was drowned before any assistance could be procured. A verdict was returned in accordance with the above facts.
