We deeply regret to have to announce an extensively fatal shipwreck in the vicinity of the mouth of this harbour, on Saturday night, that of the United States ship, Golden Star, William Henry Staple, master, on the shore of the county Wexford, between Bagenbun Head and Hook Tower. Early on Saturday afternoon the vessel was caught by a south-easterly gale, about the Saltees. Unable to pursue her voyage up channel, the storm preventing her from weathering the Saltees and other outlying rocks, she had to stand in towards the shore, and soon afterwards to let go anchors. They were not sufficent at all to keep her in position until the masts were cut away. The vessel then held to the anchors for some time, but about ten o'clock she drove ashore on rocks below Bagenbun Head.

In half an hour she broke up, and eighteen persons were drowned, viz.:—the master and his wife, the stewardess, the second mate, the carpenter, the cook, ten seamen, and two boys. The first mate, Charles Peabody, and seven sailors were saved. The ship, of about 1,200 tons burthen, was from Mobile, bound for Liverpool, laden with cotton, a large portion of which is likely to be recovered.

She struck at Carnevon Point, the southern headland of Petit's Bay, a cove about three miles above Hook Tower. The cliffs under which the vessel struck are quite precipitous, and at least 100 feet above the level of the sea; it is miraculous how any of the crew were saved, as the vessel broke up very rapidly. The coast for several miles from Hook Tower is strewed with cotton and the timber of the wreck.

A large number of persons collected on Monday in the neighbourhood and they could discern the bodies floating in the water, but were unable to rescue them. The captain and his wife were seen floating, locked together, and it would seem as if this ill-fated couple remained on deck to the last, and that the captain fastened his wife to him in the hope that he would save her, but both, alas ! have perished.—Waterford Mail

CHARGE OF FORGERY.—Daniel Barry, a grocer of Charleville, was charged before the magistrates this morning, at the Police Office, with forgery. It appeared from the evidence of Mr. Edward Curtin, clerk to Mr. Roche, of Prince's street, Cork, that in the early part of last month the defendant signed a promissory note payable to Mr. Roche for £25. This occurred in Charleville, and Mr. Barry, after signing the note himself, said he would procure the endorsement of Mr. Cornelius O'Donnell, also a resident of Charleville to it. He accordingly left Mr. Curtin and returned in about ten minutes, showing the note with the name of Cornelius O'Donnell to it. Mr. O'Donnell, however, subsequently stated that he had not signed the note at all, and that the signature was a forgery. Mr. Barry was since arrested in Liverpool and brought over under a warrant. The Bench decided on sending the case before the magistrates at Charleville.

SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO A RAILWAY PORTER.—A serious accident occurred this morning on the Great Southern and Western Railway. A man named Kiely, employed temporarily in the goods depot at Cork, went into one of the sheds at Blackpool during breakfast hour, and was just leaving it in a hurry for the purpose of proceeding home to his breakfast, when an engine, which was moving in the same direction along a side track, and which came on the same track that he was walking on immediately after he left the engine shed, knocked him down and passed over him. His left arm was completely severed above the elbow, and he received a compound fracture of the right thigh. He is at present in the North Infirmary, but no serious fears are entertained that the accident will result fatally, though amputation of the arm will be necessary.

Sir John Benson, of Cork, enjoys the deserved reputation of being not only an excellent architect but a brick in other lines. Evidently, too, he has no tee-total humbug about him, as may be seen from the following observation which he made at a public meeting in Cork Town Council. There is a fountain on the Parade in that city and a gentleman named Keller demanded what would be the expense of gilding the letters cut round the said fountain:—
Sir John Benson did not know what the expense would be but there had been considerable expense incurred with regard to the fountain already. He did not think there was a necessity for a railing, as the young people would avoid the fountain when they became used to it.
Well spoken, Sir John, in the name of a hospitable city, where the absurd habit of sticking up a bottle of whiskey to throw stones at it is happily unknown. The young people may occasionaly take the last taste in life of the water, just to see what the tap is, but they know better things, and will soon learn to avoid such mean tipple. Cork thinks with Mr. Punch, that water was made to wash in, and float ships about, not to be drunk, unadulterated, and Mr. Punch is happy "to oblige Benson" by promulgating to the world the Knight's testimony in favour of the good sense of his fellow- citizens.—Punch.

The Cork Examiner, 28 January 1861

Evanson v. Godson
Counsel came in behalf of the plaintiff to show cause against a conditional order which had been obtained for a new trial. The action was tried at the last assizes for the county Cork, before Baron Fitzgerald, and there was a verdict for the plaintiff for the full amount claimed, £260. It was an action of deceit, and it was charged that the defendant falsely represented that he was possessed of a certain lease for a residue of a term of 200 years from 1852 of premises in Bantry, and was entitled to make an assignment of the lease. The conditional order to set aside the verdict was obtained on the grounds of the admission of illegal evidence, of misdirection, and that the verdict was against the weight of evidence on the third issue to each of the special counts of the summons and plaint.

Counsel for plaintiff—Mr. Sergeant Sullivan and Mr. W. O'Brien. Attorney—Mr. W. G. Delaney. For the defendant—Sir Colman O'Loghlen, Q.C., and Mr. John O'Hagan. Attorney—Mr. P. Desmond. The case is not concluded.

At the Police Office on Saturday, John Davis, publican Leitrim Street, was summoned by Constable Campbell, for having a person drinking in his place of business at five minutes to twelve o'clock on Friday night, 18th inst. The offence having been proved by the Constable, evidence was given that the person found in the shop was a lodger, and the magistrates therefore dismissed the case with a caution. James Coughlan, publican, George's Street, was also summoned by Constable Maher for having a large number of soldiers drinking in his place of business at about 20 minutes past eleven o'clock on Tuesday night, 15th inst. Defendant, in answer to the charge, stated that on the night in question some 16 soldiers, who had been at the theatre, forced their way into the shop and could not be got out though he did his best to have them removed. This statement the Constable said he believed to be correct. The magistrates therefore dismissed the case, advising defendant to comply with the law for the future by closing his house at the proper hour, and to call on the police, if necessary, to assist him in removing any persons who may persist in remaining after the legal hour.

At the Police-office, this morning, two men named Garett and John Keane were prosecuted for assaulting Geo. Smith and Michael Mullally, soldiers of the 15th regiment. The soldiers were returning to barracks last night, when they were attacked without the least provocation by the two prisoners who met them on the Wellington-road, and one [of] them, Smith, received a blow of a stone from John Keane between the eyes which inflicted a very severe wound. The prisoners asserted that the soldiers first beat them with their belts, but this was denied. Mr. Shaw, the presiding magistrate, decided on fining John Keane 1, and his brother 10s. In default of payment they were committed to prison, the former for one month and the latter for fourteen days.
On Friday, the 25th inst., at Dublin Castle, Mrs. Paget Butler, of a son.

At Malta, on the 15th inst., the wife of B. Tydd, Esq., Surgeon 23rd R.W.F., of a son.
