|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.|
TO OBLIGE BENSON
|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.
