FORTUNATE ARRESTS.—After a stay of ten years in America where he worked hard as a labourer to amass a little money, John Cahill, a native of the district bordering on Maryborough, Queen's county, arrived yesterday in this city bringing with him a little over £77 in gold. Anxious, as he stated himself, to have a little drop of Irish drink, he took a glass of whiskey or old Tom which overcame him. Happily for him, while in a state of helpless drunkenness, he was found at twelve o'clock last night, in King-street, by constable M'Ardle, who said that but for his coming up every halfpenny Cahill had would have been taken from him, as a number of the girls of the town were close by at the time, and there was no difficulty in finding where the money was, it being in a wide open pocket in an outside shirt. The constable took him into custody and lodged him in Bridewell. Constable Conran also met with another person named Charles Scully, who likewise came from America yesterday, and took a drop too much. Only £3 10s. or so, however, was found on him. A fine of 1s. was imposed on each when brought before the magistrates this day.
THE QUEEN'S VISIT TO KILLARNEY.—We understand that there will be two stag hunts during the Queen's stay in Killarney—one on the Lower Lake, and another on the Upper. A meeting of the Town Commissioners and hotel proprietors was held at the Town Commission Office on Monday, for the purpose of making arrangements for the suitable reception of her Majesty. A committee consisting of the local gentry, Town Commissioners, and hotel proprietors, was appointed.—Tralee Chronicle.
SHEEP STEALING.—The man Michael Mullan, remanded from Tuesday on suspicion of stealing two sheep and two lambs found in his possession at half-past six o'clock on that morning in the cattle-market, was again yesterday brought up before the magistrates by Head- constable Carey, and was committed to take his trial before the Recorder ; the owner of the sheep and lambs, Patrick M'Grath of Ballinvarrig, having appeared and proved them to be his. This seems not to have been the first occasion on which the prisoner was convicted of a similar offence, as it was not very long since he underwent a term of penal punishment.
HEAD-CONSTABLE CAREY this day brought before Messrs. Mullan and Orme, R.M., two handy women named Margaret Mahony, alias Alfred, and Catherine M'Carthy, on suspicion of stealing a top-coat found with M'Carthy, who was about pledging it at the time. Mahony's brother, long since well known to the police, came forward and stated, giving a meaning wink, which did not go unnoticed by the bench, that if the prisoners were allowed at large he would be sure to find the owner. The magistrates, on being informed by the head-constable that they could be easily arrested again if it were necessary, discharged the prisoners.

RECOVERY OF DEAD BODIES.—Yesterday the body of a boatmen [sic] named Michael M'Carthy, who had been drowned off the Government pier at Queenstown, about a fortnight ago, was found floating in the river outside the river steamer's quay at Queenstown. The body of a negro was also brought ashore in Queenstown yesterday. It appeared that he had been a sailor aboard H.M.S. Immortalite ; and had deserted while that vessel was in Cork Harbour. He had attempted to swim ashore from the vessel but had been drowned on the way. When found the body was quite naked, with a bundle of clothes tied round the neck, on which was a small bag containing five shillings and a penny. The body remained exposed in the water for upwards of two hours, alongside Scott's quay, there being no dead-house in Queenstown, and finally, having been indentified as that of the man who had deserted from the Immortalite, it was towed over to Haulbowline, and placed in the dead-house there.
ACCIDENT.—A young man residing in Evergreen, fell last night, while walking in that neighbourhood, and fractured his leg. He was taken to the South Infirmary.

A WOMAN named Ann Buckley, the wife of a butcher, went into the shop of Mr. Farrell, Old George's-street, yesterday, and asked for change of a shilling. He gave it to her, when she artfully slipped three pence of the change into her pocket, and said that he had only given her nine-pence. Mr. Farrell gave her in charge for theft, and this morning she was brought before Mr. Tooker at the Police Office. Mr. Farrell, however, declined to prosecute, and the Bench dismissed her, but obliged Mr. Farrell to pay 6d costs.

A BURGLARY was committed on Friday night, in the house of Mrs. Hornibrook, Langford Row. The burglar entered by the drawing-room window, and took from the apartment a gold eye-glass, a pair of silver spectacles, a silver fruit knife, a silver pencil case, some books, and other articles. Constable Graham brought before Capt. Tooker, at the Police-office, this day, a woman named Alice Murphy, on a charge of having in her possession the articles stolen from the house. The prisoner offered them for sale yesterday, to Mr. Jackson, jeweller, and stated to him that they had been found by her son in the street ; but Mr. Jackson not believing her statement, and having heard that the house of Mrs. Hornibrook had been robbed, sent for the police, and gave her in charge to them. Miss Mary Hornibrook identified the articles as her property, and the bench directed informations to be taken against the prisoner.

THREE suspicious-looking youngsters were brought before Captain Tooker, J.P., this morning, by Constable Carson, of the detective force, on a charge of picking pockets. The constable stated that on the arrival of the last boat from Glenbrook, yesterday, a gentleman told him that several persons on board had had their pockets picked. The three prisoners being on board the boat, and Constable Carson not being pleased with their appearance, took them into custody. On searching them he found a number of handkerchiefs and gloves concealed about their persons. Mr. George Pete, Western Terrace, identified one of the handkerchiefs as his property. The prisoners were remanded for the production of additional evidence.
THE inspector of hackney cars summoned to the Police- Office this morning Ellen Ring and James Buckley, owners of cars, for having their vehicles off the station in Great George's-street. None of the parties summoned appeared. A nominal fine with costs was imposed in each case, Mr. Joyce having stated that it would be a sufficient penalty.

THE Inspector of common lodging-houses brought a number of persons before Mr. Orme, R.M., and Capt. Tooker, at the Police-Office, this morning, for violating the Common Lodging-house Act. Denis Kelleher, of Barrack-street, was fined 5s. and costs for having his house in a dirty state, a stable in a room next to the kitchen, and the certificate unhung. Joseph Jones, Hospital-lane, was fined 2s. 6d. and costs, for not having the certificate hung up, and the door of each room numbered. His house, the Inspector stated, was clean. Daniel Reardon, Fort-street, john Walsh, Fort-street, Daniel Cooney, Evergreen-street, Margaret Ward, Douglas-street, Elen Foley, James Burns, and Anne Johnston, Dunbar-street, were fined 1s. and costs, for not having the certificate hung up and the doors numbered, as required by the act.

CHARGE AGAINST A POLICEMAN.—An investigation was held at the Police Office, yesterday, by Messrs. Tooker and Orme, R.M., into a charge of neglect of duty made against Sub-constable O'Loughlen, of the Capwell station. It was alleged that through his negligence, a gentleman named O'Shea was robbed by soldiers on the 30th July, of a gold watch and £10. The evidence on which the charge was grounded was that of John O'Riordan, a baker, who deposed that on the night the robbery was committed, he rapped at the door of the Capwell station, and informed the policeman who opened it that he had seen a gentleman in the street in the hands of three soldiers, who he believed would rob him, unless the police interfered. The Sub-constable, whom he identified as the accused, asked him what reason he had to believe that the soldiers would rob the gentleman. He made no reply, and the Sub-constable was about to shut the door when he again asked whether he would come out to the gentleman's assictance. The Sub-constable said “not now,” and did not come. Witness told him that there were two young men in his company to give him courage. It was about 12 or 1 o'clock when he first went to the station. In explanation Sub-constable O'Loughlen stated that O'Riordan only told him that he suspected the soldiers would rob Mr. O'Shea. He (the Sub-constable) then went into the barrack for the purpose of awaking some of the men and going out, but on reconsideration he inclined to believe that the man's statement was incorrect, and therefore did not wish to call the other constables. When he went again into the street for the purpose of seeing the persons spoken of, O'Riordan was gone, and he could not distinguish anything that would lead him to believe that a robbery was being committed. He observed, too, that O'Riordan seemed intoxicated, and for these reasons he placed no confidence in his statement. Constable Conran gave the accused an excellent character, stating that he was only ten months in the force, but would make a most useful member of it. The Bench, after some consideration, acquitted Sub-constable O'Loughlen of wilful negligence.

“AN old Hurler” complains of the introduction of the English games of cricket and Aunt Sally, and contends that the good old Irish games of foot ball and goal should take their place. Aunt Sally indeed would be no great loss—but cricket is a fine game combining manly qualities of skill and activity.

TWO of the girls of Godsil's-lane, Margaret Reiley and Mary Anne Walsh, were charged before Mr. Clery and Mr. Orme, R.M., this day, with having stolen money from a raw country lad named Felix M'Carthy, belonging to Donoughmore. The complainant was met last evening at Patrick's Bridge by the prisoners, one of whom addressed him, claimed a relationship with him, and invited him to her residence. Not suspecting who they were, he accompanied them into a house in Godsil's-lane. Soon after he entered the house, he was asked to deliver up to them whatever money he had in his possession, and, dreading the consequences of a refusal, he allowed them to take from his pockets a sum of five shillings, which was all he had. He was then turned out of the house, and told that if he did not keep a civil tongue in his head, they would take off his clothes. He got away as quickly as he could, and gave information of the robbery to constable Gooney, who very quickly arrested the prisoners. Informations were granted. The prisoner Walsh, who it appears had, when last before the Recorder, had been promised by him, the next time [s]he appeared in his court, a sentence of transportation, cried bitterly on leaving the court-house, and accused Reilly of having brought her into her present difficulty.

AMONGST the wounded at the battle of Bull's Run, appears the name of “Sullivan, Maxwell, Company C, 69th, New York.” This, no doubt, is our fellow- citizen, son of the late Capt. John Sullivan, of the British service.

A WOMAN of the town was sentenced, at the Police Office, this day, to pay a fine of 10s., or be imprisoned for a fortnight, for having been disorderly in the streets last night.
THE first prize and medal for butter in every section was this day awarded to Mr. Daniel Driscoll ; the second to Mr. Thomas Forrest—both of Clogheen, near Blarney.

THE funeral of this much regretted gentleman took place at half-past nine o'clock this morning. The attendance was very large, and included the Mayor in his private carriage, most of the members of the Corporation, and a great many of our most respectable citizens. The funeral cortege was a very large and imposing one, and included a large number of private carriages. The inmates of the blind asylum also attended, and walked in procession. The interment took place in Upper Shandon.

A MATCH is expected to take place on Thursday week between the crews of the Cork Harbour and Lee rowing clubs, who compete for the prize at Monday's regatta, in which there will be an exchange of boats, the Cork Harbour Club taking the Blonde and the Lee the Peri. The Cork Harbour men conceive that the cause of the three recent defeats which they suffered at the hands of the other club, was owing to the superiority of the Lee boat, the Blonde, and not of her crew ; and after Monday's race, a challenge was given and accepted to run again, on condition of an exchange of boats for the race. The course will be from a point opposite Ring, up the river, a distance of three miles, with no turning, the start to take place about two hours before high water. The stakes are to be £75 a side, of which each Club has lodged £5 as earnest, the remainder to be paid in in a day or two.

ON yesterday (Sunday) a man named Maher, living in the vicinity of Kilcooly, Urlingford, went into Mr. Barker's demense for, it is alleged, the purpose of catching rabbits. He was perceived by the gamekeeper, who desired him to withdraw, but, on his refusing to do so, blew his brains through the skull. An inquest will be held on his body on this day (Monday) when, perhaps, other particulars relative to this awful affair will be elicited. The deceased was but recently married, and leaves behind a young widow to bewail his untimely end.—Correspondent

TWO curriers in the employment of Mr. Hoffman, named Murphy and Bobbam, preferred a complaint at the Police Office, this day, against a tanner named Ahern, of having assaulted and used abusive language towards them. The abusive words used were that the defendant had called them “informers,” “traitors,” &c., the cause of his doing so being that Bobbam had been a witness in a prosecution, brought by Mr. Hoffman, some time since, against a gentleman named Hansen, and Murphy, was suspected of having given private information against Mr. Hansen. The defendant being a friend of this gentleman was incensed against them for the part they had taken, and lost no opportunity of annoying them. The presiding magistrates, Messrs. Clery and Orme, R.M., sentenced Ahern to pay a fine of £1 and full costs, or fourteen days' imprisonment.

A CHARGE of assault was brought at the Police Office, this day, by Daniel Murphy against Jeremiah Lynch, his son-in-law. The complainant and defendant hold separate coal stores in Peter's Church-lane, and the difference between them originated in a rivalry in trade. Professor Barry and Mr. R. Gregg appeared for Murphy, Mr. J. C. Blake, for Lynch. The complainant's counsel sought for informations, but the magistrates considered that the case was one in which they could adjudicate, and fined defendant 10s. and costs of court or a fortnight's imprisonment. The fine was paid.

A SCOTCH SAILOR, named Daniel M'Leod, was charged at the Police Office, this morning, before Mr. Clery and Mr. Orme, R.M., with having been drunk yesterday, in Patrick's-street, with using indecent language, and insulting respectable females who passed by and rudely addressing them, catching hold of them. He was fined 7s. 6d. or one week's imprisonment.

THIS morning at the Police office, before Messrs. Orme, Tooker, and Perrier. Mrs. Bresnahan, owner of a spirit store in Great George's-street, preferred a charge of robbery against her servant Hannah Connell. The complainant missed on Monday night a pound note. The prisoner was about leaving her service yesterday when she asked her if she had any objection to be searched. Connell said she had not and accompanied Mrs. Bresnahan into a private room. She submitted to the search very complacently, so long as Mrs. B. did not examine the place where the money was concealed, but the instant the lady's search went in the direction of it, Connell immediately became violent, struggled with and struck Mrs. Bresnahan, and the latter was obliged to call her on husband to protect her. When Mrs. Bresnahan, accompanied by a constable, entered the room, a hair net belonging to the prisoner was found in the spot where she was struggling with Mrs. Bresnahan, and in it the note. The complainant said that she could not swear that the note she lost was that produced. Informations were ordered.

A CHILD about seven years old, the son of a barber named Hogan, residing in Thomas-street, fell into the river from Merchant's-quay, at five o'clock last evening. A porter named Ivis, of New-lane, St. Finn Barr's, jumped into the tide, which was high at the time, and brought the little fellow safely to the quay.

THE man, Patrick Ward, who was remanded from yesterday from yesterday, on a charge of obtaining goods under false pretences from Mr. Anglin, victualler was brought up again to-day when informations were ordered against him.

A LAD named Ahern was sentenced, this morning, by Mr. Orme, R.M., to a month's imprisonment, or to pay a fine of £1, for having stolen fruit from Mr. Mahony's garden, Sunday's-well.

A YOUNG girl named Mary Barry, was brought this day before Messrs. Perrier and Tooker, magistrates, charged with having attempted to pass a bad two shilling piece on Catherine Buckley, an old apple vendor. The prisoner, who has recently left the workhouse, said that when she was out some time ago she got the piece from a man, and had kept it ever since in her pocket which caused it to look so bad. The Bench discharged her with a caution.

A NUMBER of sailors belonging to her Majesty's ships stationed at Queenstown, have been on a jollification in town for the past few days, and, as is usual with Jack when ashore, have been playing all sorts of pranks. They have patronised the drama every evening since their arrival, and lest the performance should not prove a sufficient excitement, they always bring their bottles filled with strong liquids, which they repeatedly raise to their lips and offer to the persons about them. Two of them were charged at the Police Office yesterday with having been drunk and fined in small penalties, and one was charged this morning with attempting to desert to London by the steamer. He was ordered to be sent to the hero, guardship.

ALLEGED EMBEZZLEMENT.—At the Police office, this day, Mr. Henry Barry, rate-collector, swore an information against a clerk of his named Patrick Kelly, for embezzling upwards of £300, and making away with the rate books. It seems that after providing himself with this large sum, Kelly left town last week for England, but on arriving in Liverpool he was taken into custody, the telegraphic wires having in time supplied the authorities there with the necessary powers of arrest. For the purpose of bringing him back, the above information was lodged, which was entrusted to the care of constable Carson of the detective force.

   ARRIVAL OF THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE.—His Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, Commander-in-Chief of the Army, arrived on Sunday morning at Kingstown Harbour, by the Munster, accompanied by Major- General Sir Richard Airey, K.C.B., and Sir J.

His Royal Highness drove to the Royal Hospital, where he remained as the guest of General Sir George Brown during the day. He is expected to leave for the Curragh to-day.
A MODEL GINGLE-DRIVER.—James Donoghue, a lad 15 years of age, was this day brought before Messrs. Shaw, M'Namara, Maguire, M.P., and Orme, R.M. ; charged with being drunk at half-past ten o'clock on Sunday's Well-road last night. Mr. Shaw—Who gave you the drink? Prisoner—I got it in town, Sir. Mr. Shaw—What are you? Prisoner—I used to drive a car for my father. Mr. Maguire—What age are you? Prisoner—I am fifteen, Sir. Are you not under the age for driving a gingle? There was nothing said to me for doing it, Sir. How long are you driving? Two years and a-half, Sir. Mr. Maguire—That's a nice age, twelve years and a-half, to be driving a gingle. What is the number of the gingle you drive? 198 is the number of the one I used to drive ; it is now sold. Mr. Shaw—When did you drive last? About three weeks' ago. The prisoner was then fined 1s., and was removed.

BURGLARY.—Sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning, the shop of Jeremiah Ahern, publican, Parliament-street, was entered, and a variety of articles stolen therefrom, including a coat, silver watch and chain, razor, some copper money, and a lady's shawl fastener. No clue to the perpetrators was discovered until about half-past 12 o'clock this day when Sub-Constable Kilfedder, detective force, happened to pass through the North Main-street, and saw at the corner of Peter's Church-lane James Murphy alias John Leahy, who had in his hand a silver watch. Suspecting him as connected with the perpetration of the robbery, the Sub-Constable took him into custody and brought him before Messrs. Shaw and Orme, R.M., at three o'clock. The watch was then identified as that stolen ; also the fastener subsequently found on the prisoner who turns out to be a returned convict. After hearing evidence, the Magistrates committed him to take his trial before the Recorder.

She was afloat aft all of the time. On the 2nd inst., the passengers were put on board the United Kingdom. On the same night the Norwegian came off undamaged and proceeded to Quebec, but owing to light head winds had not yet arrived. The mails were put on board a schooner on the 31st.

   A SAD OCCURRENCE.—On Wednesday last, a very respectable farmer, named Thomas Quinn, of Rathkenny, was in Clonmel, where he had just received through the agent, James Shee, Esq., a new lease for his holding for 90 years. He returned with the glad tidings to his family, and being somewhat heated, he called for a glass of whiskey before going to dinner. Unfortunately, in the same press with the spirits was a bottle of corrosive sublimate, which was used as a sheep wash, and the party complying with his request, mistook one bottle for the other, and gave him the latter, which he at once swallowed. Medical attendance was procured as speedily as possible, but a considerable time necessarily elapsed before the arrival of the doctor. The poor fellow has since been suffering most acutely, and, notwithstanding the vigilant care and attention of Doctors Crean and Burgess, we are sorry to hear to-day that scarcely a hope is entertained of his recovery.—Tipperary Free Press.

SUDDEN DEATH.—A man named John Dineen, residing in Kearney's-lane, was found dead in his bed this morning. He was about 57 years of age, and had been employed by Cork Steamship Company, as a superintendent on the quay.

A YOUNG man called at the South Infirmary this morning, with his eyes almost closed up and his face generally swelled, the result, he stated, of a row which he got into at the Theatre last night. Remedies having been applied to his eyes and swelled face he went away.
INQUEST.—Mr. Honohan, coroner, held an inquest yesterday, at Monkstown, on the body of a man, picked up out of the river the day before. It was believed that the deceased was a ship-carpenter, but no one could be found to identify him. The jury returned a verdict of found drowned.

DEATH BY DROWNING.—Between two and three o'clock this morning, a watchman and some sailors of vessels lying at Charlotte-quay, heard a splash as if a person had fallen into the river. Nothing further was discovered until half-past six, when the body of a fruiterer named Jeremiah Ryan was found floating, life being then perfectly extinct. It was immediately removed to the Bridewell, where at 12 o'clock an inquest was held by Mr. Gallwey, and a verdict in accordance with the facts returned.

ACCIDENTS.—Yesterday a lad named John Coleman, employed at Messrs. Lunham's provision store, in Kemp-st., fell into a boiler of hot water. He was immediately pulled out by some of the men standing near, but he was, notwithstanding severely scalded all over the body and limbs. He was conveyed to the South Infirmary, where he was promptly attended to. The injuries, though severe, are not dangerous. Yesterday, a woman named Mary Lynch, was returning from the North Chapel, when her foot slipped, and she fell off the footpath and had her leg fractured. She was taken to the North Infirmary.

THE division of the Channel Fleet under the command of Admiral Erskine, left Queenstown last evening at half-past three o'clock —the flag-ship leading, and the Trafalgar and Hero following. Their destination is Holyhead, whither they proceed to rejoin the remainder of the fleet, under Admiral Stuart, and there to await Her Majesty's departure to Ireland. Sailing orders had been received at our harbour on Friday, for the ships to leave next day ; but subsequently a countermand was given in consequence of the predicted storm.

THE raffle for this valuable instrument has again been adjourned till the 2nd of September, in consequence of an insufficient number of tickets having been sold. We would again urge on our reader the importance of furthering the sale of tickets by all means in their power, before the time for disposing of the instrument comes round. The Society of St. Vincent De Paul for whose aid the raffle will take place, is about the most Catholic and liberal in its charities of any association in the world ; while the prize itself is of a most valuable and desirable nature. These ought be sufficient inducements to cause a sale of the limited number of tickets to be disposed of, and we trust no further adjournment of the raffle will be necessitated by too few subscribers to this important charitable undertaking.

ACCIDENT.—Yesterday a hackney car, which was coming from the Great Southern and Western Railway terminus, after the arrival of the train at four o'clock, and in which were a lady and gentleman, upset in King-street. Fortunately both the inmates escaped without any injury, beyond a slight shock to their nerves, but the driver, a man named Michael Carroll, residing in Blackpool, was thrown from his seat and had his shoulder dislocated. He was taken to the North Infirmary, where his shoulder was reset, and he is fast recovering from the effects of the accident.
A YOUNG man named John Newton was brought before the magistrates this morning charged with having stolen a small quantity of treacle from the store of Messrs. Baker and Simpson in Frenchchurch-street. He had been for some time employed in another portion of Messrs. Baker and Simpson's concerns, and bore a pretty good character. On Saturday last he was seen coming out of the store in Frenchchurch-street by a man named Horgan with a pot of treacle in his hands, which he hid in the loft where he had been at work. When brought before the magistrates this morning he admitted the theft. The foreman of his establishment, who was in attendance, stated that the prisoner had neither father nor mother, and was the only support of a young sister. Some time ago being discharged by Messrs. Baker and Simpson, he enlisted in the South Cork Militia, and while with that regiment his conduct was so good as to interest his sergeant on his behalf. Upon the representations of the sergeant he was taken back into the concern. It was stated that while in the Militia he used send his sister a large proportion of his pay regularly every week. Taking these circumstances into consideration, the magistrates determined to inflict as light a punishment as possible, and sentenced the prisoner to a week's imprisonment.

ROBBERY OF LAMBS.—Mr. John Walsh, a farmer residing at Castleodd, near Charleville, had sixteen lambs stolen from his land on Friday night. The robbers seem to have been very expeditious in carrying off their rather extensive booty, as no trace of them or the lambs has yet been discovered.

   FIRE IN BELFAST—A GIRL BURNED TO DEATH.—The Northern Whig, of this day, states that a part of the flax spinning-mill of the Messrs. Emerson, in Eliza-street, Belfast, was destroyed by fire yesterday afternoon. The workers had great difficulty in making their escape. From a window, three storeys high, one girl, named Alice Mulligan, leaped out, and, when she reached the ground, she was found to be almost lifeless. It was thought that all had been rescued, when the parents of a girl, named Ellen Rea, fifteen years of age, came in search for her, and after some time, the body of the poor girl was found charred to a cinder. The amount of the loss cannot be estimated. Only a portion of the machinery has been damaged.
