|FERMOY QUARTER SESSIONSSATURDAY.|
| BEFORE Mr. KANE, Chairman of the East Riding and the following magistrates:Thomas O'Brien, Mr. Bell, Edward O'Brien, Hon. C. Moore Smythe, Neal Brown, R.M. ; Mr. Hill, Mr. Austen, Captain Mansergh, N. Deane, M. Hendley, and Mr. Braddell.
The court sat at nine o'clock and took up the undefended civil bill processes, which were heard up to twelve o'clock, when those still undisposed of were postponed to this day.
The following Grand Jury were then sworn:Robert Briscoe, Fermoy ; Hugh T. Norcott, do. ; John Dennehy, do. ; John Cotter, do. ; John Furlong, do. ; Michael Magner, do. ; John O'Sullivan, do. ; William O'Connell, Rathcormac, Redmond Realli, Bally Arthur ; John Gaggin, Bilberough ; William Lavers, Ballydoyle ; Daniel Dennahy, Duntaher ; Joseph Realli, Downing ; John Peard, Bridgeland East ; Uniacke Mackey, Ballyroberts ; John Hudson, Toorgariff ; Henry Dwyer, Kilcor ; Thomas Perrott, Upland ; Cornelius O'Brien, Kilgullane ; James Geran, Broomhill ; George Burke, Ballyvoluck ; George Massy, Woodfort ; Thomas Mayo, Convamore.
His Worship said he was sorry to inform the Grand Jury that the number of cases to come before them was much gretaer than usual, and some were of a serious character. A great many of those cases were for injury to the person, and certainly the calendar in Fermoy contrasted very much with that of the division of Cork, where there was only one trifling case, and with that of Kanturk, where there was not a single case against any person in the locality. He need not remind gentlemen of their experience of the rules which they were to follow in considering the bills laid before them ; but as there duties were likely to be arduous the sooner they entered on them the better, and if they required aid or information on any point from him, he would be most happy to afford it to them.
The spirit licenses were then disposed of.
Julia Ahearne, Old Market Place, Fermoy, applied for a license in succession of her husband, who had died and left her the business.
James Barry, Barrack-hill, Fermoy, applied for a new license.
Mr. Barry, who appeared for the applicant, said the magistrates in the court below had granted the certificate. The applicant did not intend to keep a public house at all, but merely wished to retail wine and spirits in connection with a grocery establishment which he kept. The magistrates had approved of his certificate. knowing from his character that if he got a license he would not abuse it.
Mr. O'Sullivan opposed the application on behalf of another party who was also an applicant for a new license. If the magistrates broke the rule they had made against increasing the number of public houses in favour of one, they should break it in favour of all. His client, whose name was Quain, had been disallowed by the magistrates.
Mr. BrownHe has been allowed by the magistrates. His name is on the list.
Thomas Clancy, Market-street, Fermoy, applied for a new license.
His Worship (to Sub-Inspector Curling)Do you think there are not enough public houses in the town?
Sub-Inspector CurlingIn my opinion there are a great deal too many of them.
Mr. Rice, who appeared for the applicant, said he bore a very high character. He did not intend to keep a common public house at all ; but he had a grocery and a bakery establishment, and he wished to retail wine and spirits also.
Mr. Brown thought the fact of a man being in other business was a strong objection to his getting a public house license, for he might make his grocery or bakery business a cloak for trading in spirits at illegal hours. He was always anxious, therefore, that a man keeping a public house should be a publican and nothing else.
Jeremiah Clancy, Patrick-street, Fermoy, applied for a transfer.
Michael Foley, East Barrack-street, Fermoy, transfer.
William Quain, Barrack-hill, Fermoy, applied for a new license.
Mr. O'Sullivan appeared for Quain, and contended that if the bench allowed an additional public house on Barrack-hill, his client was better entitled to it than James Barry, as being a prior applicant and an older resident. Quain had very good accomodation for cattle, pigs, &c., which would be a great convenience to dealers and others on fair days.
William Shinnick, King-street, Fermoy, applied for a new license. The magistrates had refused a certificate, on the ground that the public houses in that locality should not be increased, though they considered the character of the applicant perfectly satisfactory.
Michael Spillane, Barrack-street, Fermoy, applied for a new license.
Mr. Brown said this man had got a license before, but he had given it as a marriage dowry with his daughter, and now he wanted to get another.
Mr. Rice, who appeared for the applicant, said his daughter having got married to a very respectable young man, he had given up the public house and business which he carried on to the young couple ; but it was necessary for him to get into business for himself, in order to support the remainder of his family, and he, therefore, applied for a fresh license.
His Worship and the other magistrates, who had decided on hearing all the applications, retired, and after some deliberation they returned the following decisions in the Fermoy cases:Julia Ahern, allowed ; James Barry, allowed ; Thomas Clancy, rejected ; Jeremiah Collins, allowed ; Michael Foley, ; James O'Connell, Market-street, Fermoy, rejected ; William Quain, rejected ; William Shinnick, rejected ; Michael Spillane, rejected ; John Walsh, Cork Hill, rejected.
The following were the results of the other applications Laurence Blake, Glanworth, allowed ; Wm. Coppinger, Bilberough East, rejected ; John Donoghue, Mitchelstown, rejected ; Bridget Evans, Mitchelstown, allowed ; Alice Farrell, Glanduff, rejected ; John Griffin, Youghal, rejected ; James Geary, Cloyne, allowed ; Anne Kenny, Youghal, rejected ; Thomas Keays, Castletownroche, rejected ; John Lewis, Mitchelstown, rejected ; Maurice Mahony, Midleton (hotel), allowed ; John Moroney, Clonmult, allowed ; James Magrath, Youghal, allowed ; John O'Brien, Youghal, allowed ; John O'Brien, Castletownroche, allowed ; John O'Sullivan, Youghal, rejected ; Pierce Young, Kilworth, allowed.
|DEATH OF EDWARD CLEMENTS, ESQ.|
| Another of the old guard has passed away. Edward Clements, so long and so closely connected with O'Connell in all his agitations, and so long known in connexion with the Dublin registry and with every liberal political movement, died on Saturday at his chambers, Henrietta-st. Mr. Clement [sic] was son of Hill Clements, Esq., C.E., county Cork, and was a members [sic] of the Irish bar. His connexion with politics injured him seriously in his professional career, and, with characteristic gratitude, the Liberal party passed him over on every occasion when they might, with advantage to the public service and to an old ally, have given him promotion. The fact was, he was too useful ; always ready to act when called upon, and when an open [sic] offered for serving him those who used him were too timid to aid a friend. In social life Mr. Clements was highly esteemed. A charming musicianendowed with an exquisite voice and passionately devoted to the study of the fine arts, he was amongst the few whose opinion on such topics was valued. For some time Mr. Clements' health has been failing, and hope deferred helped to weigh him down to that bourne whence no traveller returns.Freeman of this day.|
