The Cork Examiner, 12 September 1856
   WINDSOR, TUESDAY.裕wo intelligent and rather respectably-dressed youths, of the respective ages of eleven and thirteen, are at present under the care of Inspector Eagar, of the Windsor Borough police, until their friends are communicated with. The younger boy says his name is Wm. Fenwick, and that he resides with his father at No. 38, Edward-street, Regent's Park, who was recently a chemist's assistant, at 32, Lisson-grove, but is now a clerk in the city. The elder boy states his name to be William Butterworth, and that his father, who was a private in the 2d Life Guards, died about two years ago. They gave the following extraordinary account of themselves, and from the simple and artless manner in which they told their tale, there is no reason for suspecting it to be otherwise than true:
   展e were standing at the corner of Edward-street (London), at ten o'clock yesterday (Monday) morning, when a gentleman drove up in a basket-chaise, and asked Butterworth to hold his horse, which he did for about five minutes. When the gentleman returned, he felt in his pocket and said he had no change, but if he would ride with him to New-road, where he lived, he would give us a shilling between us. On arriving at the top of Albany-street, the gentleman gave us something to drink out of a half-pint bottle, which we observed was sealed and tied with a string. The liquid tasted like bitter ale, but was the colour of porter. In about five minutes we were sleepy, and fell asleep immediately afterwards. We remembered nothing else until we found ourselves at half-past five o'clock in the afternoon in the Home Park, close to the river, and within twenty yards of the keeper's house at Victoria-bridge. Butterworth awoke first ; he immediately knew where he was, from his having been previously quartered with his father at Windsor. Both our hands ached very much on awaking. We came to Windsor to inform Mr. Lunday, Butterworth's former school-master, of what had taken place, and ultimately we were brought to the station, and placed under the care of Mr. Eagar. We have ever been kindly treated by our parents, who must be greatly distressed at our sudden disappearance. It was near the Crown and Anchor where we got into the chaise. The gentleman wore a black coat, black trousers, and a light coloured waistcoat ; he was a dark man, about 40, with large black whiskers and moustache. It was a four- wheel low caned vehicle, the hind wheels much larger than those in front. It was a bay horse, with a black tail. Butterworth is living with his mother at 24, Great Edward-street, Regent's Park.

   The Dublin correspondent of the Times says that a respectable professional man, recently returned to Dublin from New Orleans, is ready to aver on oath, if called upon, that during his residence at the latter place he had seen John Sadleir bodily striding through the streets of New Orleans. There could be, he insists, no mistake, as he had been for many years familiar with the marked features of that never-to-be-forgotten countenance.

   MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR.輸 rumour has reached us that a respectable man named Rooney has come to his death under circumstances which lead to the suspicion of his having been unfairly dealt with. It seems that he was connected with some road contract near Helvic Head, Dungarvan, to which point he went over in a boat ten or twelve days ago葉hat he was afterwards found drowned, and interred without any inquest, it is said, being held on the body. Report also states that the body has recently been exhumed and one of the legs found broken ; and it is also hinted that he had come into contact with a person with whom he had quarreled some time before. We give publicity to these rumours in order that they may arrest the attention of the coroner and police of that district. The gentleman who conveyed these rumours to us expressed surprise that he saw no allusion to this mysterious affair in any of the newspapers. Tipperary Free Press.
   THE LATE CAPTAIN GRAVES, R.N.裕he Belfast Mercury, speaking of this gentleman, who was recently assassinated by a boatmen [sic] at Malta, says:欄Here in the north of Ireland, where the family of Captain Graves has, for a long period, been resident, where he was personally known, and had many attached friends, the sad event has excited a deep feeling of regret. In our own town it has been felt as a severe and sudden shock by several who had the happiness of knowing intimately the sterling worth of him who has been so suddenly cut off. About twenty five years ago, when he was engaged in the survey of Lough Neagh, by orders of the Admiralty, he was frequently in Belfast, and took a warm interest in the efforts then made for the erection of the Museum, enrolled himself as a life member, and was present at the opening of that institution, as well as on many other occasions afterwards. It was by his invitation, and in his vessel, the Beacon, that our lamented townsman, the late William Thompson, Esq., visited the Aegean, in 1841, accompanied by their mutual friend, Edward Forbes, the late eminent Professor of the University of Edinburgh. It is indeed an impressive lesson as regards the uncertainty of human life, that in the space of less than five years the three scientific friends who had sailed together over the sunny waters of the Aegean should all have passed away.
   SPORTING.裕he Marquis of Waterford, Lorenzo Hickey Jephson, Esq., Lieut. Henry Jameson, B.M., Waterford, formed a shooting party lately at Hollywood, county of Wicklow, the picturesque seat of his lordship's brother, Lord John Beresford. They met with considerable success, and shot upon one excursion no fewer than eighty brace of grouse.

   ARRIVAL OF TROOPS.裕he Clyde, transport, arrived on Monday morning in Kingstown Harbour, having on board six officers and five hundred and fifty rank and file of the 36th Regiment, ordered home from the West Indies. Shortly after the Clyde coming to moorings in the harbour the troops disembarked in sections with their luggage. Several companies of the men, after disembarking, were supplied by direction of their officers with refreshments from O'Neill's Pier-head hotel. They were then marched to the terminus of the railway, and proceeded by train to Dublin, and were quartered in Beggar's-bush Barracks. The Clyde is under orders for sea immediately again to convey troops abroad.
   There is to be a grand review every Thursday during the present season of all the troops at the Curragh, under the command of Lieut.-Gen. Sir Richard England.
