|RIVERSTOWN PETTY SESSIONSTUESDAY.|
GEORGE A. WOOD, ANTHONY PERRIER, C. O'CALLAGHAN, and Counsellor MANNIX, presiding.
|MR. DRINAN, solicitor, attended to prosecute James Grant and William Carey, assistants in Mr. Fitzgibbon's establishment, under the 27th Geo. III., chap. 35, sec. 10, for entering upon the lands of Coole, to look for hares, not being authorized to do so, whereby they incurred a penalty of £10 each.|
| John Martin, game-keeper to Mr. George Francis Wise, proved, that on Sunday, the 22nd of September, he saw the defendants beating for a hare on the lands of Coole ; that they had four greyhounds, and that they had not permission to enter upon the lands.|
| Mr. Blake, solicitor, appeared for the defendants, and after cross-examination of the witnesses, contended that as the defendants did not start a hare they were not liable to any penalty under the act, which was a penal one. He then proceeded to examine William Kenefick, to show that the defendants were trespassing without guilty knowledge, and that they thought they were on the lands of Mr. Justin M'Carthy, of Carrignavar, from whom they had permission to course.|
| The Bench taking into consideration the circumstances in life of the defendants fined them in the mitigated penalty of £4 and costs.|
MIDLETON QUARTER SESSIONSYESTERDAY.
| (Before Mr. THOMAS DE MOLEYNS, Q.C., Chairman, and the following Magistrates :Lord Mountcashel, Col. Roche, Messrs. Knaresborough, R.M.; and N. Brown, R.M.)|
|Captain Jonathan Morgan v. Denis Downing, Robert Walsh, John Foley, John Sullivan, Walter Prendergast, and William Connors.|
| The offence with which the traversers, who had been out on bail, and seemed to be all respectable young men, were charged was that of unlawful assembly and riot, and assaulting prosecutor, on the night of 23d August. The sworn information of the prosecutor stated that he was Captain in the 97th Regiment ; was staying at the time of the alleged assault at Carrol's hotel, Fermoy, and at present stationed at Colchester. About 12 o'clock on the night in question he was, in company with another gentleman, about leaving the billiard-room of Cahill's hotel, for the purpose of going to his lodgings, when he received information that parties were watching him outside. He accordingly went out by a back entrance, and on reaching the street was met, struck and knocked down by several persons, amongst whom were the traversers. He knew no cause for the assault, except a quarrel that was said to have taken place between his brother and one of the prisoners, for whom he himself was told he called about a week since, but did not remember anything about it.|
| After the prisoners had been arraigned, Lord Mountcashel said that as there was a family connection between him and prosecutor he would retire from the bench during the hearing of the case.|
| His Worship thought that Lord Mountcashel was acting as a gentleman in taking no part in the decision of the bench, though there was no immediate connection between himself and the prosecutor.|
| Mr. W. M. Johnson, counsel, said that before the traversers pleaded in the case, Captain Morgan for whom he appeared, was satisfied with the expression of regret made by the traversers for what had occurred on the occasion in question. They regret what they did, they agree to pay the expenses attending the civil action usual in such cases, and offer to give a sum of money towards any charity prosecutor may choose. Of course, his client did not wish to interfere with the rights of the Crown, but as far as the private prosecution is concerned he retires from it.|
| His WorshipI am sure that is what Captain Morgan would wish. The matter now rests entirely with the Crown, in whose hands it is. . . .|
| Jeremiah Loughlin and John Murphy, having pleaded guilty to rescuing two cows, two horses, and two calves, arrested under a civil bill decree, and to assault, were each sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment.|
| Mr. Moore, solicitor, Midleton, addressed the bench in mitigation of punishment.|
| The Court was occupied the rest of the day in hearing ejectment cases.|
|THE following, which we take from the Constitution of this morning, affords a striking commentary upon the observation which we thought it necessary to address in the Examiner of last evening to the ratepayers of the city:|
|WATCH AND WARD.|
| A meeting was held at Mr. GALVAN'S, Castle-street. yesterday evening, for the purpose of adoptoing measures for the preservation of property of the inhabitants of Corn Market-street, Castle-street, and Daunt's-square. Mr. J. R. WILLIAMS, auctioneer, presided. Several of those present gave a very bad character of the present watchman, TIM CALLAGHAN. It appeared that he gets about £1 a week from the householders in the streets mentioned, yet he is extremely neglectful of their interests, and a great drunkard. On Sunday night, the night after the late burglary at Mr. O'FLYN'S, Castle-street, he was watched, and found not to come on his beat at the proper hour. Some of those who were paying him went to his house, and asked for him, but he was denied to them. On a second visit he was found talking to his wife, and was believed to be after a drunken spree. Mr. E. COTTER, Corn Market- street, stated his premises had been broken into six times last winter, owing to the negligence of the watchman. Mr. CLANCY, Daunt's Square, said that a lodger in his house named RIELY had seen CALLAGHAN assist some prostitutes to rob a man. He knocked the man down with his stick, and held him while the women were robbing him, and when the police came up he helped to take the man to the bridewell. Mr. COTTER said a woman named FOLEY had told him that she had seen him in another robbery. After some conversation about the general worthlessness of CALLAGHAN, a poll was taken as to whether he ought to be retained or not. It was resolved by a majority of one, that he should get a month's trial.|

|THE Month's Mind for the late Rev. Michael Moore, P.P., Glanworth and Ballydangan, will be held in Ballydangan Chapel on Thursday, the 17th Oct. The Office will commence at 11 o'clock.|
|KILLARNEY, TUESDAY.An inquest was held this day at the Courthouse on the remains of a young lad named M'Carthy, son to Tim M'Carthy, boatman and fisherman at the Lake Hotel. It seems from the evidence, which was adduced before Mr. John C. O'Riordan, coroner, that a dispute took place at the Lake Hotel, about two months ago between the deceased and a young boy named Mike O'Connor, son of Mr. Jeremiah O'Connor, in the employment of the Lake Hotel ; that the quarrel terminated by O'Connor inflicting a few kicks on the right thigh of the deceased, from the affects of which the deceased was unable to leave his bed, and died last Sunday. O'Connor on the same evening was arrested. The jury returned the following verdict :We find that the deceased, James M'Carthy, died in Killarney on the 6th of October, from the effects of an abscess on the thigh and disease of the thigh bone ; but whether such abscess arose from the injuries inflicted on him by Michael O'Connor as alleged, there is no evidence before us to show.|

| KILLAVULLEN, TUESDAY.An inquest was held here this day before Messrs. C. J. Daly, Coroner, and Henry B. Foote, J.P., on the body of James Magner, aged 45 years, a Crimean veteran, who died rather suddenly on Saturday morning. A young man named O'Brien was arrested on the same evening on suspicion of having ill-used him as they spent the previous night together. Edward Barry, M.D., our indefatigable dispensary physician, deposed this day, that Magner was under his treatment for the past 12 months, being suffering from asthma together with his being a habitual drunkard, and that death resulted from the foregoing facts. The jury returned a verdict to that effect, and O'Brien was accordingly discharged. A Correspondent.|

|CORK HARRIERS WILL MEET ON|
Friday 11th, at Ballinamadree.
| BRUTAL ASSAULT ON A YOUNG GIRL AT GLOUCESTER.On Saturday the county magistrates at the Shire-hall, Gloucester, proceeded with the examination of seven persons charged with a most brutal and outrageous assault on a young girl named Dorca Davis, about eighteen years of age. The names of the accused areWilliam Bowen Alston, aged 18 ; Hy. Chandler, of Gas-lane, 18 ; Joseph Parker, 15 ; Thos. Wheeler, 14 ; Charles Alcock, 17 ; George Cox, 20 ; and Wm. Harris, 17. The court was densely crowded, the case having excited a great sensation in the neighbourhood, owing to its atrocious and filthy character. It appeared that the girl had been all day at the Mop fair at Gloucester, on Monday last, in company with Rosanna Toombs and H. Hopkinson. In returning home about eleven o'clock from the fair, about a dozen men and boys overtook them. They threw her down and behaved in the most disgusting manner towards her. The details are quite unfit for publication. After receiving considerable injuries, she was at length able to escape from them. It was proved by the surgeon who examined her that she had been much injured, and that a capital offence had been committed. The prisoners were committed for trial.Star of yesterday.|

At present two Irishmen fill the office of Mayor one in Liverpool, Mr. Greaves, a Wexford man, the other in Morpeth, Mr. Maurice O'Connor, a native of the county Kerry, and both are Protestants. Mr. O'Connor, who was born a Catholic, is a native of Dingle, and renounced the errors of Popery many years ago. Kerry Star.|
