The Cork Examiner, 1 February 1861

Walton v. Hedges
   Sergeant Lawson. with whom was Mr. O'Brien, moved in this case for an injunction to restrain the respondent, the Hon. Mr. White Hedges, from proceeding under a civil bill ejectment decree, against the petitioner, or interfering with his possession. He stated that the petition was filed to obtain the specific performance of an agreement for a lease, and it set forth that in 1798, Mr. Robert Hedges, of Macroom, in the county of Cork, and the Earl of Bandon, who were jointly entitled in fee simple, made a lease of certain lands to Thos. Walton, the father of the petitioner, for three lives, at 」40 a year. After the death of Thomas Walton, the petitioner and another of his sons divided the land and occupied them separately ; and afterwards, in 1837, it was agreed between them and Mr. Hedges, who had become solely entitled to the property, that they should surrender the former lease, and take a new lease, each of his portion for 99 years, or such terms as Mr. Hedges should please to give each, paying himself the forty pounds rent. As a proof that this was a mere formal proceeding, for the purpose of effectually putting and end to the former lease, the petition stated that the process was served on the petitioner by the Rev. Mr. Davies, a Protestant clergyman, who was then residing with Mr. Hedges. The petitioner stated that Mr. Payne wrote the agreement in a book, and that in 1841 he gave the petitioner a copy of it, marked with his initials, and gave him instructions in writing for the lease, which was to be prepared by Mr. Morgan, the law agent of Mr. Hedges. A lease was prepared, but was not executed, owing to the illness of Mr. Hedges, who died in 1841. The petitioner continued in his possession, and he stated that previous to the agreement he had expended 」800 in the erection of a mill and machinery on the premises, of which sum Mr. Hedges had lent him 」100 to be secured by a mortgage of the premises, and that he afterwards expended 」200 on the faith of the agreement. In 1851 he applied to Mr. White Hedges, the respondent, who was the representative of Mr. Hedges Eyre [sic], to execute the lease, but he stated that he was only a tenant for life ; and that he was apprehensive he had no power to do so. Afterwards he directed a case to be prepared for the opinion of the Recorder of Cork, which opinion the petition stated was favourable to petitioner, and which he stated he sent to Mr. Hedges, and which was not returned. In 1859 a notice to quit was served, and an ejectment was brought at the Bandon Sessions, in which a decree was pronounced, and the application now was to restrain the respondent from proceeding upon that decree.
   The Master of the Rolls granted the order for the injunction.
   No counsel appeared at the other side.

The flogging and expulsion took place in the square of the Cork Barrack on Monday.
   REPRESENTATION OF DROGHEDAROGHEDA, JANUARY 29. A paragraph having appeared in one of the Dublin morning papers to the effect that in case Mr. O'Hagan was appointed Attorney-General, the member for this borough, Mr. James M'Cann, would resign to create a vacancy for the former gentleman ; however welcome the exchange would be to so many of the electors, yet the rumour, I understand need not be relied upon. It is considered as entirely devoid of foundation against Mr. M'Cann's warmest supporters in Drogheda. Besides, Mr. M'Cann gave a pledge at the last election to the constituency that he would never resign without giving them three months' notice to that effect.Saunders' Correspondent.

We have recieved from Sir JOHN ARNOTT 」1 towards the fund for replacing the tools of the workmen destroyed in this calamity.

THE usual monthly meeting of this body was held yesterday, Mr. G. M. White in the chair. A sum of 」200 was placed at the disposal of the Hay Press Committee for the purposes of the hay press. Tenders were read for raising a wall at the eastern end of the market, and making gateways ; and that Mr. Thomas Walsh, at 」160, was accepted.

A DEFORMED and positively ugly individual named Edward M'Namara alias Silk, somewhat about fifty years old, was yesterday brought before the Magistrates, by Constable Campbell, charged with robbery and seduction. Mr. Blake who appeared for the prosecution, stated the facts of the case :裕he prisoner had at one period been a schoolmaster, but on being convicted of a criminal assault on a pupil of his, was sentenced to ten years' penal servitude. While undergoing this term of imprisonment, he learned the trade of shoemaking, and on his release devoted his attention entirely to it. Pusuing this avocation, he became acquainted about a fortnight since with a farmer's family named Barrow, living in the parish of Ballinamona, by whom he was employed to make three pair of shoes, and at whose house he put up while so engaged. During his stay there, he induced a member of the family, a very pretty little girl, only fourteen years of age, to promise to come to Cork with him holding out to her the bait of a situation as a lady's maid in case she consented. Young and guileless as she was, she did consent. Accordingly, on Sunday morning last, both left the house, and on arriving in this town, up to Wednesday morning, lived in a lodging house in Blarney lane, she bringing with her some articles of dress, and other matters not her property. On Wednseday her uncle made an application to the magistrates to have the prisoner arrested, and by their direction the Constabulary kept a look out for him, Constable Campbell succeeding in the same evening in taking him into custody. The charge of seduction was not, yesterday entertained, but that of robbery was, and the Magistrates, after hearing the particulars of it, ordered information to be taken against him.

The Cork Examiner, 15 February 1861

PRACTICAL JOKE.祐ome ingenious person having become possessed of a blank form of summons as issued at the Police office, determined to cause some fun by it, at the expense of a victualler named Denis Nolan, residing in Shandon-street. He accordingly filled it in the usual way, assigning the part of complainant to Thomas Ahern, Dominick-street, who charged defendant , Nolan, with assaulting him with intent to do him bodily harm. It was dated Monday, the 11th, and was signed by Mr. Daniel Leahy, one of the justices ; the complaint being fixed for hearing on Thursday, 14th. The summons thus filed was in due time served on defendant who, whether from some intimation or suspicion that the document was not genuine, at three o'clock on Wednesday, enquired for Mr. Humphrey's clerk, if it had been issued by that court he himself not being conscious of the existence of any grounds to found the charge stated therein. The clerk at once satisfied Nolan that the document was a forgery, but conceiving that tricks of this nature should not be encouraged, he, with the concurrence of the bench, learned from him the names of those whom he suspected to be party to the joke. These were desired by Head- constable Carey to attend at the Police-office yesterday, and give all the information they knew in reference to the summons ; but they probably did not consider themselves bound to appear on such a notice as that given, and did not attend.
AT three o'clock yesterday, a victualler named Patrick Cox was summoned by Sir John Arnott, Mayor, for keeping lighted in Market-lane a timber fire, which was injurious to the complainant's property, and dangerous to the lives and property of those living in the vicinity. Evidence was given by Mr. Higginson, an assistant in Sir John's employment, that the fire which was never used up to the last few days, did considerable injury to the bonnet ware-room immediately over defendant's stall, and if continued, would cause danger to life and property. Mr. Perrier, agent of the company in which the Mayor's premises are insured, stated that he inspected the place in which the fire complained of was kept, and believed that if allowed to be lighted there, it would be attended with danger to the adjoining property. Mr. Gillman, solicitor, who appeared for the prosecution, applied to have informations taken against defendant. The applicaton was granted, and defendant was admitted to bail.
AT the Police Office yesterday, Mr. Samuel Newsom, grocer, Patrick-street, was summoned at the suit of the Corpotation, for obstructing Patrick and Marlboro' streets with scaffolding erected in front of his premises. Mr. Barry M'Mullen, builder, was also summoned for not removing same after received due notice to do so. Mr. Blake, who, with Mr. Gillman, represented defendants, proposed that the case be adjourned for another week by which time his clients hoped the building would be completed, and the obstructions complained of would be removed. At present if they were removed persons passing by would be injured in case any quantity of the molten lead which is used in the upper portion of the building fell. In reply to the bench, Mr. Tracy, on the part of the corporation, said he would be most happy to agree to the proposition made, but that a similar one had been made to the Improvement Department twice before, and violated. Mr. Julian, on behalf of Messrs. Crowly, Vuille, Reeves, neighbours of Mr. Newsom, also objected to any further time being allowed defendants, as the period already consumed, 18 months, in building this house has been most unreasonable, and should not be extended. His clients and other shopkeepers in the vicinity had lost considerably by these obstructions, and their business is to a very great extent gone. Besides, it could be proved that defendants have been completely trifling with the public, for at their caprice, the work of three days, when not pleasing to the taste of Mr. Newsom, has been pulled down in a few minutes. In such circumstances he thought it would not be fair to give them any further indulgence. The Bench seemed to consider Mr. Blake's propositon one that ought be agreed to, and said they would enter a conviction against defendants, which would be enforced that day week if the obstructions were not taken away in the meantime.

(From the Irish American.)
   With regret which will be shared by every Irish Nationalist, we have received intelligence of the death of Terence Bellew M'Manus, the Patriot Exile of '48, which melancholy event took place on the 15th ult., at St. Mary's Hospital, San Francisco.
   Terence Bellew M'Manus was in his fiftieth year, and, we believe, a native of Monaghan. At the time of the Revolutionary uprising in Europe, in 184748, he was a merchant in Liverpool, engaged in the commission and forwarding trade, and rapidly advancing in prosperity. In the Southern districts of Ireland, especially, where he had been for several years the principal travelling agent of the great English house of Pickford, he was universally popular ; and his prospects in a business light were in the highest degree flattering. He was but just entering upon what promised to be a brilliant and successful mercantile career when his warm, impulsive nature and enthusiastic love of country drew him into the struggle for Irish independence ; and, without a thought for self or a regret for all that he was sacrificing, he cast himself into the movement that appeared to promise a national resurrection for his beloved Fatherland. What boots it now to refer to the disastrous result, too frequently and idly paraded before the public gaze. To him it brought only defeat, captivity, and the exile's grave in a strange land.
   With the events which succeeded Mr. M'Manus' escape from Van Dieman's Land, and his arrival in California in 1851, our readers are already acquainted. Having, by the advice of several wealthy Irish-Americans resident in California, engaged in the commission business in San Francisco, he continued in trade, with more or less success, up to a recent period, varied by only one or two visits which he made to the mining regions. Latterly he has been engaged upon the San Francisco Daily Herald, with which paper he was, we believe, connected to at the time of his death.
   Human nature is never unleavened by weaknesses ; and poor M'Manus was no exception to the rule. He had his failings ; but they were severely atoned for ; and his countrymen, who received only the impress of his virtues and patriotism, can well afford now to leave his faults sink unreproved into his lonely grave by the far Pacific strand. Brave and fearless as a lion, his nature was gentle and compassionate as a child's ; his heart was filled with love for his native land strong as that of a mother for her first-born. In the light of that love for which he dared and suffered so much let his memory only be recalled. His lonely grave needs no other epitaph than that which Davis claimed for his
滴e loved his country, and served his kind.
   May his soul rest in peace.

ABOUT two months since a carman from Cappoquin, named Patrick Hefferenan, was robbed of over 」20 while enjoying himself in a public house in this city. Two women, Anne Sullivan and Mary Power, were arrested at the time as being parties to the robbery, the latter of whom was also since found guilty before the Recorder, but not yet sentenced. The other, after being arrested, was discharged, owing to the want of sufficient evidence to convict her. She was, however, again arrested yesterday, by Constable Vickers who learned that she was in company with Power, when 」10 of the sum stolen was lodged with a certain publican of the town, and that she also received 」5 on her own account. The Constable on bringing her before Mr. Orme, R.M., at three o'clock yesterday, applied for a remand until this morning, which was granted.
AN intelligent lad, named Henry Harding, was brought before the magistrates at the Police-office on Monday, under the following rather unusual circumstances. On Saturday evening he appeared at the Tuckey-street police-station, and gave himself into custody, stating that in the early part of the week he had stolen a waistcoat out of a house in the South Main-street. He added that he was starving at the time, and stole the article to support himself. The police made enquiries about the matter, and finding that the boy's statement was correct, brought him before the magistrates. It appeared that his father was dead, and that his mother was at present living in London. Up to a short time since he was supported by an old uncle and aunt, but they being unable or unwilling to maintain him any longer, turned him into the streets, and he was now perfectly destitute. Having ascertained that he was under 14 years of age, the magistrates determined to send him to the Upton Reformatory.

AT the Police-office, on Monday, an action for ejectment was brought by Mr. White against Mr. John Crowley, to recover possession of a piece of waste land situate at Barrackton. The plaintiff stated that the defendant held under a monthly tenancy since last August, at a rent of 3s. 4d. ; that he had served the ordinary notice to quit, and that the defendant refused to give up the land. The defendant alleged that the tenancy was yearly, and that on the faith of the agreement, he had spent 」4 10s., in improving the place, by putting up gates, &c. The plaintiff had since let the land to Mr. Lane, of Barrackton, for building, at an increased rent. From the conflicting nature of the evidence, the magistrates were unable to come to a decision on the case, and made no order.

AT the suit of the Corporation, several hackney-car owners were summoned yesterday before Messrs. Hall and T. Lyons, J.P.'s ; some for having their cars off the stand plying for hire, and others for plying without license to do so. The offence in each case having been proved by one of the Corporation police, the magistrates imposed on the offenders of the first class a fine of 2s. 6. and costs, and on the others fines varying from 5s. to 10s. and costs. They also stated that if the same parties were summoned before them again they would inflict the full penalty of 40s. The Town Clerk conducted the prosecution.

   QUEENSTOWN, TUESDAY EVENING裕he s.s. Etna, from New York, on the 9th, arrived this afternoon. She brings the United States mails, 24 cabin, 84 second class, and 82 steerage passengers. Having landed the mails, together with 2 cabin and 24 steerage passengers, she proceeded immediately for Liverpool輸ll well. The Vigo had arrived out.
   BOSTON, FEB. 7TH.裕he schooner Josiah, from New York for Portsmouth, cargo flour, is ashore at Cape Cod. She will go to pieces if the weather does not moderate. Crew saved.

   INFORMATIONS were taken, on Monday, against a woman named Mary Moloney, for attempting to steal a quantity of bed clothes and wearing apparel out of a lodging-house in Hanover-street, kept by a woman named Stephens.
