The Cork Examiner, 2 January 1862
   At the Nenagh petty sessions, on Saturday last, the opinion of the Law Adviser was received on a case submitted by the magistrates, on certain objections made to a summons and conviction of a person named Ryan, who had been summoned by Caleb Going, Esq., J.P., Traverston, for keeping a greyhound without being qualified. The opinion stated it was not necessary that the proceedings should originate with the Excise, and that the summons need not negative the exceptions contained in the 2nd section of IO Wm. III, c.8. A fine of £5 (late currency) and costs was imposed.—Daily Express.

AT the usual monthly meeting which took place to-day, some discussion arose on a motion of Mr. Reeves with regard to erecting a hay shed. Mr. Cantillon suggested that it would be better to enclose the hay yard first ; and finally his suggestion was referred to the Finance Committee, the question of the hay shed being left in abeyance for the present.

THE Times Irish correspondence contains the following version of this affair :—
   “A man named Curtain, was the captain of a little steamer, called the Queen, which carried the American mails to and from Queenstown and Cork. He lost the situation, and on the 20th inst., as he was stepping into a boat, some person, thinking him still the captain, told him the Queen was drifting down the river, when he exclaimed 'To hell with the Queen!' A policeman named Wither, mistaking the object of his imprecation, swore informations against him for using seditious language, and the case is to go to trial at the assizes, if Mr. P. O'Connell, Crown prosecutor, should be of opinion next Monday, at Petty Sessions, that the case is one which ought to be entertained at all.”

ACCIDENTS.—This morning, as the Carrigaline 'bus was coming into town, it drove against a little girl, named Catherine Ryan, who resides on the quarry road, and knocked her down. The accident occurred near the South Infirmary, and the child, whose age is about a year and a half, was at once taken into the institution and attended to. She received some severe injuries about the head and face, but fortunately none of them are of a dangerous character. Several parties applied for relief at the same institution to-day and yesterday for injuries by falling down stairs. Last night an old man named Stephen Nagle, residing in Broad-lane, was passing through the North Main-street, when one of a number of parties who were engaged in a row drove against him and knocked him down. The poor man had his thigh broken, and was taken to the North Infirmary.
   LONGEVITY OF THE IRISH POOR.—DEATH OF A CENTENARIAN.—A pauper woman lately died in the Mullingar Union Workhouse, named Sally Murray, in her 103rd year. This very aged person had never known a week's continuous illness during her long life. The following individuals, of the ages stated, have been inmates of the workhouse during the past 12 months:—Of the age of 70, 28 ; between 70 and 80, 24 ; of the age of 80, 12 ; between 80 and 90, five ; between 90 and 100, two, exceeding 100, two.
   DISGRACEFUL RIOT IN WATERFORD WORKHOUSE.—A pauper emente took place in the Waterford Workhouse on Sunday morning, caused, as it is rumoured, by some of the imates, who had been confined for misconduct breaking out of the cells into the chapel, and ther attacking and ill-using the master, matron, and other officers. The master received cuts on his forehead from blows of stones. Some of the delinquents absconded over the walls, but others were secured and identified. The police were summoned to quell the riot, and succeeded in arresting some of the mutineers in the act of getting over the wall. A searching inquiry is to be instituted. —Kilkenny Moderator.

   The unprecedented rapidity with which the mails received by the Africa were transmitted to London, affords a signal example of what can be effected by the Government when it has thought right to make arrangements for the speedy communication of intelligence, and at the same time shows what little weight should be attached to the excuses which are sometimes made to account for the delay to which the public are exposed. The American despatches left Queenstown at seven minutes past five o'clock yesterday morning, reached Kingstown at a-quarter past ten, and in three minutes were on board and on their way to Holyhead, in the Ulster, which was in readiness, with steam up. At a-quarter to three (English time) the Ulster reached Holyhead, and at nine o'clock last night the mails were in London, thus completing the whole journey, including all the necessary changes, in the almost incredibly short period of fourteen hours. This fact establishes incontestably the great advantage of an Irish packet station. It had never been fairly or fully tested until circumstances made it necessary to throw overboard every consideration of rivalry or jealousy, and to make the most complete arrangements for making it available.—Dublin Evening Post.

YESTERDAY another transport, the Victoria, of London, No. 4, arrived at Queenstown in order to take on board troops for Canada. These will consist of the 1st battalion 15th Foot—the 17th, 2nd battalion, having proceeded in the Muaritius, which left yesterday, and not the former regiment as was stated ; she will embark besides some detachments of corps already in Canada, and leave port early next week. The Adelaide, No. 5, now lies at Haulbowline filling up coal, and will immediately embark 800 men, together with an immense quantity of stores, &c., for St. John's, New Brunswick. This is the vessel which in the early existence of the Galway line was chartered for the service of that Company, and at the time performed some excellent voyages between New York and Galway via St. John's, N.F.
A DRAFT of the 15th foot arrived in Cork last night by special train, and embarked this morning for Canada. It consisted of 200 men, with Captain Wilkinson, and Lieutenants M'Murray, Churchill, Kemis, and Windle. The head quarters, under Colonel Cole, are expected in a few days. Some companies of this regiment left Liverpool for Canada, on Saturday, under Lieut.-Col. Grierson.

DEAR SIR,—In your report of the Munster Flax Society, held yesterday, you represent me as having stated that 6,364 tons of flax were sent from Munster to the North, whereas what I said was, that 6,364 tons of flax were sold in the Northern markets in 26 weeks ending the 24th December, at prices varying from £35 to £147 per ton. You will please rectify this mistake in your next publication.—I am, your obedient servant,
THIS tiny craft, which a few weeks since put into Queenstown to fill with coal, after a run from Glasgow, and—with great presumption one would think from her size—intended to steam to Bahia, left to-day in prosecution of her voyage. When first she put to sea from this port she was obliged to return, partially disabled, and had to go into docks at Passage ; but, nothing daunted, the “Dumbarton” is determined to attempt making again for her distant port.
BRUTAL ASSAULT ON A SAILOR.—Yesterday, a sailor named Joseph Williams, was received into the North Infirmary with a broken leg. It appeared that he belonged to an American barque lying at Merchant's-quay, and had settled his accounts with the Captain preparatory to leaving, when the mate desired him to do some piece of work. Williams said the mate had nothing more to do with him, as he was leaving, on which the mate desired him not to give any black answers. The other replied that he was not, and other words ensued, which finally resulted in the mate seizing Williams by the head, and commencing to beat and kick him. He then dragged him down on the deck with such violence that his leg, which fell across a spar, was fractured. The poor man is still in the infirmary.

THE outward bound steamer of this line yesterday—the City of Manchester—arrived at our harbour last night shortly after twelve o'clock, not having left her berth in Liverpool until eight o'clock on Wednesday evening owing to the dense fog then prevailing, which also retarded her progress down the river Mersey for some hours. The Manchester embarked at Queenstown twenty-two passengers and thirteen bags of mails. The passengers were all Irish Americans, citizenised in their adopted country, returning to their homes in haste before the outbreak of the anticipated war with the United States. Excepting among this class, emigration to America no longer continues from this port. Among the passengers were Captain Francis Welply, 69th Irish-American regiment, and Mr. Jeremiah Kavanagh, of San Francisco, both of whom arrived here some time ago in charge of the remains of T. B. MacManus. The Manchester takes also out an immense cargo—over two thousand tons of English goods. The passengers having been provided with passports, and other necessary preparations having been carefully gone through, she left immediately.

A DETERMINED suicide was yesterday reported at Queenstown as having taken place on board the Russian barque Ranha, which had, on her arrival from Odessa with maize put into this port for orders. Upon enquiry the rumours proved too true. The unhappy victim of self-destruction was the vessel's commander, Captain Goos ; and no other motive can be assigned for the perpetration of the dreadful act than a melancholy almost verging on insanity, arising from some cause as yet unkown.

   On the 2nd inst., at Haulbowline, the wife of Mr. O'Reardon, of a daughter.
   On the 30th of December, at Rattigar, Dublin, the wife of Wm. G. O'Connor, of a son.
   On the 1st inst., at Monkstown Glebe, Dublin, the wife of the Rev. Rowland Macdonell, of a son.
   Dec. 31, the wife of Major M'Mahon, of Genning's Park, Hunton, Kent, of a daughter.
   On the 31st Dec., at Upper Grosvenor-street, London, the wife of John Walter, Esq., M.P., of a daughter.
   Dec. 29, at Newbridge, county Kildare, the wife of Major Williams (King's Own) Hussars, of a son.

   On the 5th of December, at his residence, Queen's Terrace, Trinidad, John Clifton Hanagan, Esq., eldest son of the late Charles Hanagan, of this city, aged 40 years.
   On the 27th Dec., at 31, St. George's-square, South Belgravia, London, of diptheria, Mildmay Barrington, aged 16 years, eldest son ; and, on the following day, Percy, aged five years, beloved sons of Edward Barrington de Fonblanque, Esq., Assistant Commissary General.
   On the 1st inst., at his residence in Clarence-street, North Strand, Dublin, Mr. James Byrne, in his 76th year.
   On Tuesday evening, in Henn-street, Killarney, of disease of the heart, Mr. Cornelius Scully aged about 60 years.—May he rest in peace.

   The Society of St. Vincent de Paul acknowledge, with thanks, the receipt from Messrs. M'Cormack, Victoria Hotel, of a quantity of coal tickets, for distribution amongst the poor.

BURGLARY.—Between one and four o'clock this morning, some parties at present unknown, contrived to force an entrance into the hotel of Mr. T. M'Carthy, Barrackton, and to remove therefrom three gallons of whiskey, a quantity of cheese, about a quarter of a cwt. of sugar and a variety of other articles. It seems that in endeavouring to effect the burglary, those concerned first took down one of the shutters and then broke the glass, by which an easy entry was made. Information of the occurrence was given to Head-Constable Roe, who has spared no efforts to discover the perpetrators, but has as yet without success.

   LONDONDERRY, SATURDAY.—The Canadian mail s.s. Hibernian arrived in Lough Foyle at 5 a.m., this morning. Having received the mails and latest telegrams on board, sailed at 6 o'clock for St. John's, N.B., all well. The Hibernian takes out 1,000 troops to St. John's, N.B.
   A letter was received to-day at Lloyd's, from the Secretary of the Admiralty, stating that the inspecting commander of the Coast Guards at Ramsgate had reported that a suspicious looking steamer was seen cruising about the Channel off Dover, on the 27th ult., which, from circumstances since transpired, there is every reason to suppose was the privateer Sumter. It appears the Sumter, when last heard of by the Federals, was making in the direction of Europe. The Sumter is about 1,600 tons, painted black, and is very fast.

   KINGSTOWN, SATURDAY.—The steamer Adonis from Belfast to London, was driven ashore at Dalkey at 2.30 a.m. She is now drifting out to sea in a sinking state.
   The crew of the Adonis have gone to Dublin by the 10.30 a.m. train.
   Steamer supposed to have gone down. Captain missing. Passengers all saved.

   BELFAST, FRIDAY.—Mr. Sweeny of Monaghan, one of the sufferers by the collision last evening, died in Portadown this morning from the effects of his injuries. The other parties are likely to recover. This is stated to be the first fatal collision that has occurred on the Ulster Railway or its branches, since its opening in 1838.

   LONDONDERRY, THURSDAY EVENING.—I regret to apprise you of a frightful accident which occurred here last night at the display of fireworks by the Apprentice Boys. It will be remembered that the Apprentice Boys, when urged to postpone the celebration of the 18th ult., owing to the death of Prince Albert, refused to forego any noticeable item of the demonstration except the fireworks, and these were postponed till last night. Accordingly, rockets, &c., were sent up yesterday evening in great profusion, the display being held in the Diamond, close to the lower side of Corporation Hall. The affair had been nearly brought to a termination when one of the mortars suddenly exploded, causing terrible havoc to those in its neighbourhood. One man named Canning, had his right leg broken and fearfully mutilated, his injuries being so great that he died in a couple of hours. Two other persons were also severely wounded, one having his eye torn out, and the jawbones of the other being smashed. Several other individuals received injuries of a minor character. It was most fortunate that the direction taken by the exploded mortar was inwards from the street. Had it been outwards it is fearful to contemplate the extent of the sad consequences, as a dense crowd were assembled. Many of the windows of Corporation Hall were smashed. This is not the first fatal result that has attended the Apprentice Boys displays. Some years ago one of their number was killed by the bursting of a cannon on the City Wall, and the same disaster rendered others lame and blind for life. When the cannon were lately brought out to salute Lord Eglinton another person was killed, and others seriously injured ; and now we have the painful occurrence of last night. A very grave responsibility attaches to the corporation of Derry in connection with these displays, as the municipal bye-laws forbid the firing of cannon, the exhibition of fireworks, or the burning of effigies, without permission of the mayor.—Freeman.

   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. Brown—He 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 Curling—In 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.
   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 musician—endowed 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.

THE Christy's Minstrels are returning to Cork, and have announced three performances, to be given towards the end of next week. The various claims of this troupe of performers on public support and admiration are well enough known already in Cork, and we are sure the attendance at each of the concerts will prove that the merits of their entertainment are sufficiently recognised. The Christy's stand first on the list of the innumerable bands of negro melodists who have for some years back visited these countries, and are amongst the very few whose entertainment is perfectly unobjectionable.

YESTERDAY, by the arrival of the barque Statesman, at Queenstown, intelligence was had of the abandonment of the barque Grace, of Stranraer. The crew of the latter vessel were taken on board the Statesman in lat. 39.15 N., long. 60.80 W., where the ill-fated ship was then fast sinking. The wrecked crew, having been landed at Queenstown, were immediately placed in the Sailor's Home.
(From the New York Times.)
DEC. 31.—A despatch from Boston, received yesterday morning, announced positively that Mason and Slidell were to go out in the Niagara to-day, that vessel having been detailed for the purpose of taking them by Lord Lyons, and that the Persia, now in the St. Lawrence, would come round to take the place of the Niagara, and sail on the regular day. Subsequent despatches, however, throw doubt upon the statement, but it was still insisted that the Niagara would be in readiness to sail at noon to-day—the agents of the Cunard line in Boston expecting an order from Lord Lyons to take the rebel Commissioners on board. Mr. Cunard, of this city, however, insists that the Niagara will not leave until her regular day, and this is probably the case, as our Washington correspondent telegraphs that the rebel Commissioners are not likely to go before Wednesday of next week, the regular time of sailing. It has been decided, after consultation between Lord Lyons and Secretary Seward, that they will not go on board a British man-of-war.
