The Cork Examiner, 1 February 1862
(Before Messrs. HALL, ORME, R.M. and the MAYOR.)
A YOUNG lad named James Murphy, who not long since effected his escape from the Bridewell, was charged with stealing a meerschaum pipe from the shop of Mr. O'Brien, publican, Winthrop-street. The assistant stated that yesterday the prisoner, on entering the shop, took the pipe out of its case and went off with it. After a chase, he succeeded in overtaking Murphy in Fishamble-lane, and gave him in custody to the police.
   Informations were ordered.
   John Cadogan, said to be from Queenstown, was sentenced to a week's imprisonment for being a vagrant from one electoral division to another.
   At the suit of the Corporation, several parties were summoned for keeping manure exposed, so as to cause disease, and were each fined 1s. and costs, to be raised to 5s, and costs, should it be not removed within a certain time.
   Margaret Tuomey and Ellen Conway, girls of the town, charged by Constable Hughes with using obscene language last night on Patrick's Hill, were sentenced to a week's imprisonment in default of paying a fine of 5s.
   Mr. Julian, solicitor on behalf of a joiner named Timothy Sullivan, appeared to recover the sum of £6 10s. from Capt. Wm. Maar, of the schooner Zephyr, for work done. The facts were :—Plaintiff entered into a contract for the above sum to repair the bulwarks of defendant's vessel, and to find the necessary materials. After getting the timber defendant objected to one of the planks, whereupon plaintiff offered to allow him to select from the timber yard any piece he pleased, but defendant refused to accede to anything of the sort, and would not allow the work to be proceeded with in consequence. If he had been allowed to do it, the work which was all prepared would be finished by this time. Plaintiff valued the work done by himself and his boys at £3 3s. 8d.
   The captain said he was willing to leave the case to arbitration. The objection he made to the finishing the contract arose from the fact that a plank long enough was not procured by the plaintiff.
   The Bench gave a decree for £2 10s. and costs of court.
   Anne Connolly summoned for knowingly buying a pair of military boots, belonging to a private in the 24th regiment, was sentenced to three days' imprisonment, in default of paying a fine of 2s. 6d. She also forfeited the 4s. which she paid for the boots.
   A little boy named Jeremiah Long, given in charge by Mr. O'Connell to Constable Hosford for stealing a bag of coals, was discharged, prosecutor declining to proceed against the prisoner.
   Catherine Quinlan, publican, South Main-street, was summoned by Acting-constable O'Hearn, for having her place of business open at five minutes past nine o'clock on last Sunday morning. The acting- constable stated that at the hour mentioned he saw persons going in and coming out of defendant's house. He did not, however, on entering, see any signs of drink on the premises.
   Mr. Julian said that defendant was going out with her child at the time the men rushed in against her will, and did not give them any drink.
   Evidence to this effect having been given, the case was dismissed, defendant being cautioned to be more particular in future.
   Wm. Clancy, Daunt's-square, and Catherine Mulholland, Patrick's-quay, publicans, were fined 10s. and costs, for having parties in their places of business on Friday and Saturday nights during the prohibited hours. A similar fine was imposed on Edmond O'Halloran, publican, Gillabbey-street, for having his place of business open at minutes past eleven o'clock on Tuesday night. A like charge was made against Edward Stack, publican, North Main-street, but was dismissed on being proved that the persons found in the house were friends of the proprietor, and did not get drink at all there. The prosecutors in the above cases were Constable M'Ardle, Hughes, Molony and O'Hearn.
   A number of hackney-car owners were fined in sums from 1d. and costs to 10s. and costs, for violation of the bye-laws of the corporation. Mr. Joyce, inspector, prosecuted.
   Five or six young lads were summoned by Constable Molony for throwing stones on the public streets on Monday and Tuesday evenings.
   Head-constable Carey said that one of the stones thrown struck the Rev. Mr. M'Namara in the chest, and was near doing him a serious injury. Father M'Namara, however, on the boys promising not to repeat the offence, did not wish that he should be punished. The police did not ask to have the boys punished either if they promised not to be disturbing the streets again.
   The boys were discharged on their complying with the expressed wishes of the bench.
   The Mayor directed Head-constable Carey to call the attention of the constabulary of the South part of the city to a similar nuisance complained of in the neighbourhood of Maypole Road. A complaint was made to him of a very ugly nuisance inflicted on the inmates of the Alms House which belonged to the South Presentation Convent, and was, on inquiry, found to be too true. The reverand mother told him that it was impossible for the Sisters to take a walk on the terrace within their grounds on account of the frequency with which stones were thrown in from the Maypole-road. He thought that when ladies devoted the entire of their life to the education of the children in the neighbourhood, it was very bad treatment to receive from persons in the locality.—After spending their day in the cause of education, the least, he thought, they should be allowed [to] enjoy was a little recreation at the end of their labours, and the return made was, he considered, a very bad one.
   Mr. Orme—It is very wrong, indeed.
   Head-constable Carey said he would inform Constable Hosford of the circumstance alluded to by his worship, and the subject dropped.
(Before Messrs. HALL and E. ORME, R.M..)
INFORMATIONS were ordered against Mary M'Carthy, the keeper of a house of ill-fame in Harpur's-lane, for stealing a sum of 32s. from a private of the Royal Artillery, who was in her house.
   Lawrence Walsh was charged with stealing a quantity of wearing apparel, from a lodging-house in Leitrim-street. He was remanded until Monday.
   A man named O'Brien was brought up by Constable Hughes, who stated that he called at Patrick's-hill station on this morning, and presented a begging letter there. He was discharged, being the first time he was brought before the Bench.

CHARGE OF INFANTACIDE.—At the inquest held at three o'clock yesterday, in the Bridewell before Mr. Coroner Jones, on the body of one of two infants found that morning in Shandon church-yard, Dr. Callaghan after making a post mortem examination, deposed that, in his opinion, the child was suffocated. The jury accordingly returned a verdict of infanticide against some person or persons unknown. It subsequently came to the ears of the Shandon-street police that a woman named Bridget Leary was the mother of the child, and had kept out of the way as much as possible since its birth. She was searched for, and subsequently arrested by Constable Molony, who lodged her in Bridewell. Being still in a delicate state, and unable to appear before the magistrates this morning, she was remanded until restored to health.
   THE PRIZE FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP.—King, the defeated antagonist of Mace, has been removed to London and placed under strict medical surveillance. It appears that in the 42nd and last round, Mace threw his opponent with extraordinary violence, and the shock with which his head met the ground not only rendered him insensible for a considerable time, but occasioned symptoms of extravasation of blood or concussion of the brain, the effects of which will, it is said, incapacitate him from again appearing as a combatant in the prize ring.

   LIVERPOOL, SATURDAY.—The Australasian, an extra Cunard steamer, which took out troops to Canada, arrived here early this morning. Left New York on the 19th.

QUEENSTOWN, MONDAY EVENING.—The Royal Mail Steamer Europa has arrived. She brings 64 passengers, gold dust and specie, value 9,797 dollars. Having landed 68 sacks of mails and three passengers, she proceeded immediately, all well.
   The Europa left Boston 5th and Halifax 7th. Experienced very severe Easterly weather.
   NEW YORK, FEB. 4TH.—The Orsini, hence to Cork, returned for repairs. Scandia and Winbern, both from Queenstown, reported lost off Barregat.
   NEW YORK, FEB. 4TH, EVENING.—In reply to enquiries from the legislature of the State of Maine, Mr. Seward stated that he granted permission for passage of British troops across Maine, to save troops suffering from Northerly Canadian voyage. No foreign power inimical to England would complain of the Federal government extending this comity to England. Any danger from this permission could only come from direct hostility on the part of England towards the Federal government. Mr. Seward would not affect ignorance that popular asperities have recently appeared in Canada and England, which seemed to indicate a growing alienation of sentiment among portions of British people, but the English Government has during this time held towards the Federal Government its customary language of respect and friendship. The Federal Government, practising entire frankness, yields its full faith to these assurances of the British Government.
   The policy of the Federal Government has been to fortify its territories, to resist foreign and domestic enemies, if such enemies must come ; but it has been careful to secure even greater strength by showing itself consistent in all things, scrupulously just and, if possible, magnamanious towards other nations. Should the State of Maine be aggrieved at the instructions given, they will be modified.
   President Lincoln has ordered the removal of privateersmen to Fort Lafayette, and they will in future be treated as prisoners of war.

At the Police Office this morning, before Colonel Wood, Captain Tooker, and Mr. Clery, a lad about sixteen years of age, was put forward charged with stealing a cap from Mrs. Welply, South Main-street. It appeared that on last Saturday evening Fenton went into Mrs. Welply's shop and asked to see a cap. Two caps were handed to him, and he immediately ran off with them. The young girl who was minding the shop followed him and saw him go into a house in Cook-street, where he was found by Constable Ahearne concealed under a bed. Informations were ordered. This was the only case of any importance, and the number of persons charged with drunkenness was very small for a Monday morning.

   Holloway's Ointment and Pills—Children's complaints.—While the weekly return of mortality shows a decrease of deaths from small-pox, it displays an alarming increase in fatal cases of measles and scarlatina. Such unfortunate issues would not result were mothers and nurses to rub Holloway's Ointment upon the glands of the neck and upper part of the chest when symptoms of scarlet fever and measles first appear, or even after the eruption has come out. The Ointment penetrating through the skin into the glands, always stimulates them to throw out a full eruption, which is the safety valve of both diseases. Holloway's Pills also should be given to lessen the fever, to reduce the irritation of the throat, and to quiet the cough, which are most distressing to all suffering from these complaints.

(Before Col. WOOD, Captain TOOKER, and Messrs. CLERY and ORME, R.M.)
THREE men, named respectively Cooke, Hall, and Callaghan, appeared to answer a summons issued by Mr. Delea, inspector at the hide crane, on the part of the committee of merchants, under the following circumstances:—
   Mr. Blake, who appeared for the committee of merchants, stated the case. He said that the hide crane is a market for the sale of hides, and that, to direct the countrymen who come in to sell, a list of the current prices of the day is kept posted up on the walls. The prisoners are in the habit of hovering around the doors of the market waylaying poor countrymen before they can see the list of prices, and purchasing their hides from them at a rate far lower than the proper one. There was one instance, about a week since, in which one of the prisoners purchased a cwt. of skins for 16s. which were worth 36s. What he (Mr. Blake) feared was that Mr. Delea would be compelled to have recourse to force, to expel these men. If he did so they would probably resist, and a row would ensue ; and, under these circumstances, he would ask their worships to bind the defendants over to keep the peace. He might add that this was not the first time these men were before the court.
   Mr. Tooker said that he would wish to see on what grounds they could bind these men to the peace.
   Mr. Blake contended that the magistrates are fully justified in binding to the peace any persons distrubing a public fair or market.
   After some further discussion it was decided on examining Mr. Delea, who fully corroborated the statement made by Mr. Blake.
   The Magistrates after a few minutes spent in consultation decided that there was no case against the prisoners, which could justify them in binding to the peace.
   Mr. Blake then called upon the Bench, to warn the prisoners not to go near the market any more.
   Mr. Tooker said he and his brother magistrates should refuse Mr. Blake's application.
   John Shea who had been remanded on a previous occasion was again put forward, on a charge of stealing a flitch of bacon from the shop of Mr. Buckley, North Main-street.
   Mr. Buckley deposed to having missed the flitch on last Saturday evening, and to its being returned to him on the Sunday following.
   William James Thompson deposed to having seen the prisoner leave Mr. Buckley's shop on Saturday with the flitch in his arms. His suspicions were aroused and he went into the shop and asked Mr. Buckley did he sell Shea any bacon. Mr. Buckley said he did not and information was then given to the police.
   The man who brought back the bacon having proved he received it from Shea's sister, informations were ordered against him.
   Anthony Moore who had been charged with desertion on yesterday on yesterday at 3 o'clock was put forward, the attestation paper having been received.
   Mr. Orme said that the bench had determined on inflicting a severe penalty, owing to the great trouble caused by the prisoner's obstinate denial of his guilt on yesterday. They would accordingly sentence him to a fine of £4 or in default four months' imprisonment.

The Cork Examiner, 21 February 1862
   For the last two days it has been blowing a gale of wind in the Channel. Vessels proceeding up and down have the full benefit of it. It is our painful duty to report another fearful wreck. Between three and four o'clock yesterday, in a heavy gale, the barque Portia, 289 tons register, outward bound, from Liverpool to Pernambuco, laden with black pitch, pine plank, struck on the Blackwater bank, but worked off in a short time, and the poor devoted crew believed themselves in comparitive safety, which was of short duraton. She again struck and rolled over on her beam ends. The men at once took to the boats, but it is our melancholy duty to record the total loss of the crew of one of the boats, containing the mate and carpenter and seven seamen. Nine poor fellows in all perished in their strenuous endeavour to save themselves. The commander of the ill-fated craft, Captain Carne, and four seamen who were in the other boat, got ashore in safety near Greystones, where they received every attention from the coastguard stationed there. They were sent on to Kingstown, where they reported the loss of their ship to Captain Hutchinson, R.N., harbour master, who immediately forwarded them to the Sailors' Home. The ship belonged to Messrs. Johnson and Peters, of Liverpool. She is breaking up fast. The part of the coast where the above wreck has taken place is not inappropriately designated a “slaughter-house.” The foggy weather “bell-buoys” would be of the utmost service in warning the mariner of his proximity to a dangerous shore.—Freeman.
