The Cork Examiner, 4 July 1862
(Before Messrs. W. JOHNSON and W. H. LYONS.)
TWO girls of the town, Mary Egan and Catherine Keleher, were charged by a cattle-dealer named Cornelius Cunningham, from near Mallow, with stealing five pounds in notes from him last night. Prosecutor stated that he was on his way to his lodging in Mallow-lane, and meeting with Keleher on Patrick's bridge, asked her to show him what road to take. She promised to do so, and led him up the hill, followed by Egan, who, he asserted, took the money in question out of his waistcoat pocket. He told Constable Scanlan immediately after the occurrence, and the prisoners were taken into custody soon after. Prosecutor was not drunk or sober at the time [sic], and was well able to account for himself.
   Informations ordered.
   John Meade, a foolish-looking man, was brought up by Acting- Constable Clarke, on suspicion of being a deserter from the army. Having being found at half-past one o'clock this morning, lying in a butt on Pope's-quay, and admitting he was in the army, he was arrested. The prisoner, when before the court, said he had been in the army, but was discharged. He lost his discharge, however, while in Dublin.
   The bench discharged the prisoner, considering him, from his appearances and manner, not likely to be fit for service.
   John Dundon, carpenter, summoned Mr. James O'Brien, Coburg-street, for recovery of £2 16s., alleged to be due for work done.
   The plaintiff, on being sworn, stated that he engaged with defendant to do certain work under a contract. What he claimed at present was for extra work, not contemplated by the agreement, which consisted of preparing certain flooring and a skylight.
   Defendant deposed that the preparation of the flooring was included in the contract for laying the floor, and he offered 8s. for the skylight. Before the terms of the contract were signed they were read to the plaintiff and what was to be done was pointed out to him. Amongst other matters was the preparation of the flooring in question.
   The point in dispute was whether “laying” the floor included also its preparation. A carpenter named O'Connell thought it did not ; and another, Connolly, was of opinion it did.
   The bench gave a decree for 8s. without costs.
   Mr. R. B. Cronin, and Mr, Blake, solicitors, appeared respectively on each side.
   At the suit of the Corporation, John Sheridan, driver to Mr. Denis M'Donnell, hackney-car proprietor, Pembroke-street, was summoned for not having the bye-law book to produce, when demanded, on the 1st July on Patrick-street. Mr. Joyce, inspector, proved the offence.
   Mr. Julian, solicitor for defendant, argued that he was entitled to dismiss from the words of Act of Parliament—the Cork Bridges and Improvement Act, 1856—the 59th section of which stated that “the Corporation shall, at the time of the granting a license, cause to be delivered to the driver to whom same license shall be granted, an abstract of any bye-law in force.” If that section were not complied with the driver cold not produce the bye-law book, and for the neglect of the officers of the Corporation the defendant should not be punished. There was no evidence that the driver got the book in question. Mr. Julian then referred to the illiberality of the Corporation in not granting Mr. M'Donnell and others, who have been endeavouring to improve the existing class of gingles by the introduction of cabs, power to increase the fares for such cars, considering that they cost four or five times the price of common gingles.
   The bench said they would give Mr. Julian an opportunity of appealing by imposing a fine of 21s.
   Mr. Julian said there would be no use in doing that as the Corporation could amend the evidence in the interim.
   The Bench then fined defendant 2s. 6d., including costs, being of the opinion that drivers were bound to have the book with them at all times when plying for hire.
   A second summons against the same defendant was issued for not having his book on the 2nd July. Mr. Joyce assigned as a reason for the second summons the fact that he gave the evening before four books to Mr. M'Donnell.
   Mr. Julian cross-examined Mr. Joyce as to his motives in summoning so often Mr. M'Donnel's drivers. The inspector denied that he felt anything like vindictiveness in the matter.
   The same penalty was imposed.
   Denis O'Kelly, owner of the lighter Ann, charged William Ahern and Jeremiah Mulcahy, of Passage, with embezzling seven or eight stone of wheat. Mr. Julian stated the facts :—The lighter in question, of which defendants had the care, was employed by Mr. Cantillon to bring up a quantity of Odessa Ghirka corn to Cork, and some days after to do the same for Mr. James Adams, the corn in the latter case being American. When Mr. Adams' corn had been discharged, a bag of corn similar to that belonging to Mr. Cantillon, was found concealed in a small cabin in the lighter. On Mr. O'Kelly enquiring of the defendants why it was there, one of them, Mulcahy, said it was the sweepings of the corn, the other being present at the time.
   Evidence to this effect having been given, Mr. Blake, solicitor, contended that there was no guilty intent, as had defendants wished to commit a fraud they could have made away with the corn and not allowed it to remain in the lighter.
   Informations were ordered.
   Constable Hughes summoned Margaret Reynolds, Half Moon-street, for selling drink without being licensed to do so. The Constable stated that he was passing Half Moon-street, at 12 o'clock on Saturday night, and saw a number of persons entering defendant's house ; the door was at once closed and the lights put out. At half-past one he called again and heard a number of persons inside who seemed to be under the influence of drink ; called at three o'clock, and after remaining some time found some persons coming out whom he summoned as witnesses.
   A lad named Patk. hewitt, appeared on the summons, and was about to be sworn when Mr. Blake, for defendant, said that was his time to interfere. As parties found drinking in the house were equally liable, under the Act, to the penalty as well as the proprietor, the bench should not, therefore, allow the witnesses say anything that would criminate themselves. He would, therefore, caution those summoned that they could refuse to take the oath.
   Patrick Hewitt and Daniel Lynch were then examined, and stated that they saw no one drinking in defendant's house on the night in question. The first witness refused to say whether he drank or not, but the latter said he went in for drink and would not get it.
   The case was dismissed, there being no evidence of the offence charged. At the same time the bench said they had no doubt whatever that persons were drinking in the house.

Ware v. Meade.
THIS was an action brought by Mr. N. W. Ware, a teller of the National Bank in this city, against Mr. Meade, publican, Barrack-street, for a sum of £10, which plaintiff alleged to have overpaid defendant in the course of a business transaction.
   The jury found for the plaintiff.

   Admiral Julien de la Graviere will hoist his flag on board the iron plated frigate Normandie, and sail for Mexico at the end of July. The 1,800 men now embarking in Algeria will start on the 6th instant for Guadoloupe. General Foley will not leave France till September.
   A gentleman, M. Mathieu (de la Drome), who filled no undistinguished place in the French Republican Assemblies of 1848, affirms that he has discovered regular tides in the atmosphere, preciseley analogous to those of the sea, which reduce varieties of temperature to settled rule, by which the weather can be foretold days, weeks, nay, months in advance, with scientific accuracy.

   CALCUTTA, JUNE 9TH.—The heat in northern India has been terrific. The political and even commercial world has been in a state of collapse, and partly as the result of this the most alarming rumours have been flying abroad. The local press penned these alarms, and the native press extended the excitement. At the very time when in Agra the Sepoys were to rise and the English residents were to be poisoned, there were only 400 native soldiers in the station against an overwhelming force of English troops. There never was less ground for alarm on our part, but still watchfulness may be always necessary. Every arsenal, and nearly all the artillery, are in our hands. There are about 22,000 English soldiers in the country, and the native army of twice that number is under despotic discipline.
   LONDON, FRIDAY.—A deputation of noblemen and gentlemen interested in the Irish Salmon Fisheries, and opposed to the bill now before parliament for the purpose of assimilating the laws relating to salmon fishing in Ireland to those of England, had an interview with Lord Palmerston yesterday, at Cambridge House. The Marquis of Waterford, Lord Templemore, the Earl of Antrim, Lord Monteagle, Sir H. W. Baron, Bart. ; Sir H. Bruce, Bart., M.P. ; the Mayor of Limerick, Mr. W. Joynt, and several other owners of fisheries in the north and south were present. It was represented by the deputation that the bill of Mr. M'Mahon, which proposed to abolish the use of stake and bag nets, would confiscate the property of a great number of persons who, up to the present time, imagined that they were in possession of a parliamentary title. It was also urged upon the noble lord that many hundreds of working men would be thrown out of employment if the bill were passed, while it would inflict the utmost injustice upon the owners of the present fisheries, the total value of which was between two and three hundred thousand pounds per annum. Lord Palmerston stated, in reply, that he was not aware of all the facts which the deputation had brought under his notice, but that their representations should receive the careful consideration of the Government. The general impression is, that the bill will not be proceeded with further this session, but that the Government will, in the course of the ensuing recess, appoint a royal commission to enquire into the whole subject. —Correspondent of the Freeman.

   The Australian papers are unusually barren. The mail left Melbourne May 26th. A vote of £120,000 for immigration had been passed. Of this sum £65,000 is to be expended in introducing persons nominated by friends or relatives in the colony, and £40,000 for the introduction of single females and persons nominated in the United Kingdom.

   According to the Auckland news of 7th May there is no fear of any immediate recommencement of hostilities. Accounts from Otago state that owing to the winter season the weekly exports of gold had dwindled from 12,000 oz. to between 3,000 and 4,000 oz.

   IMPORTANT CASE.—THE AMERICAN WAR.—A singular case, which raises a question of international law, came before Baron Fitzgerald on Friday in the Court of Exchequer. In the case of Thompson v. Knox, an action on a promissory note made at Charleston, South Carolina, and payable at the People's Bank, in the Federal States, Mr. Henderson moved, on behalf of defendant, for leave to file a special defence under the following circumstances :— Plaintiff was a citizen of the Confederate States, and defendant of the Federal States, but now residing in this country. Since the breaking out of hostilities between the Northern and Southern States a law had been passed by the Federal Government by which all citizens of the Federal States were prohibited from paying any debts they owed to any citizen of the Confederate States, on the pain of being treated as a traitor. The law further directed that in such cases the debtor was to pay the amount into the Treasury of the United States, and this the defendant alleged had been done by his partner in America. Counsel stated that his client would be liable to be hanged if he paid the debt. The Court granted leave to file the defence.
CHARGE OF BIGAMY—A MAN WITH THREE WIVES.—Eugene P. M'Carthy, a solicitor and public notary in Ireland, described as having no fixed residence, was charged with intermarrying with Catherine Craigh, otherwise Cree, his former wife, Mary Jane O'Brien, being still alive.
   Mr. Stephen O'Brien, brother of the second wife, residing at Queenstown, produced papers proving the second marriage in July, 1854, at Dublin, and he further stated that the prisoner subsequently married Mary Ann Bunning, at St. James's Church, Islington. The first marriage took place on the 29th of January, 1839.
   Dr. James O'Brien, brother of the prosecutor, corroborated the evidence.
   The prisoner was remanded for the attendance of the witnesses to attest the respective marriages.

   AT 10 o'clock, a.m., the Right Hon. Mr. Justice Christian entered court. The long panel was then called over, and the following jury sworn :—John Rice, Richard Cussen, R. Hilliard, Wm. Spring, C. Chute, E. Hudson, H. D. V. Curtayne, J. Creigh, J. Lumsden, J. Collis, Wm. Todd, Jas. Barry.
   Wm. Murphy was indicted for an attempt at violating the person of Catherine Savage, and also for an assault on the said Catherine Savage. The prisoner pleaded “not guilty,” and was undefended.
   The prosecutrix, a girl sixteen years of age, was examined and detailed the circumstances of the case, and proved that the prisoner committed the offence.
   A man named Wm. Shea was examined, and deposed to having heard the girl's screams, and saw her on the ground. His testimony corroborated the girl's statement.
   Mrs. Mary M'Carthy, examined, said she saw the prosecutrix a short time after the occurrence ; she then told her (witness) that the prisoner ill-used her, but denied that he had violated her person.
   John Murphy, M.D., examined—Made an examination of the person of the prosecutrix, and there appeared no traces of the crime having been committed ; there was a black mark on the inside of her leg ; found no other marks of injury on her person.
   Head-Constable Conway examined—Saw the prosecutrix on the 22d of January ; she pointed out where the offence was said to have taken place ; saw marks on the ground, as if a struggle had taken place there ; went to the house of the prisoner on several occasions, and could not find him—he absconded.
   Constable Godsell deposed to having arrested the prisoner on the 22nd of April near Castleisland, a distance of ten miles from where the occurrence took place.
   The Court addressed the jury, and said though the prisoner was not indicted for criminal assault, the evidence of the prosecutrix would lead the jury to suppose that the crime had been committed. Having reviewed the evidence, the Court left the case in the hands of the jury, who without leaving the box found the prisoner guilty of the assault with the intent to violate.
   The Court sentenced the prisoner to imprisonment with hard labour for 18 calendar months.
   Cornelius Mulvahill was indicted for a grievous assault on the person of Thomas M'Carthy.
   The prisoner pleaded “not guilty,” and was defended by Mr. Coffey.
   The prosecutor was examined, and deposed to having been struck with a stone by the prisoner.
   A man named Stack proved that he saw M'Carthy struck with a stone and knocked down.
   This witness was examined at great length by Mr. Coffey, for the purpose of proving that they were the attacking party—that they were drunk, and had previously insulted some young women, cousins to the prisoner, and that the blow was intended for him (witness).
   Edmond Doody was examined on the part of the prosecution, but did not give very important testimony.
   Dr. Loughnane deposed to having attended M'Carthy ; he was suffering from a slight wound over the ear ; had a quick pulse and a sickness of stomach ; he was still labouring under symptoms which would lead him (Dr. L.) to suppose that he may yet suffer from the injury.
   This closed the case for the Crown.
   Mr. Coffey stated the case on behalf of the prisoner. Mr. Coffey stated that it was a young man named Sullivan who flung the stone, which was intended for Stack.
   Several witnesses were examined on behalf of the prisoner, and deposed to the bad conduct of Stack, and that if a blow was given it was intended for him, and that it was given by Sullivan, who has since gone to America, accompanied by the girl who was insulted by Stack. A girl proved that she had a hold of Mulvahill at the time she heard the fall of the man on the road, and that it was impossible he (the prisoner) could have thrown the stone that knocked M'Carthy down.
   Mr. Henn, Q.C., addressed the jury on behalf of the Crown.
   The Court charged the jury, reviewing most minutely the evidence given against and for the prisoner.
   The jury acquitted the prisoner without leaving the jury box.
   The prisoner was discharged.
   Denis Brian was indicted for an attempt to carnally abuse the person of Catherine Allman, a girl under ten years of age.
   The prisoner pleaded not guilty, and requested the court would assign him counsel for his defence.The Court intimated he had no power to award counsel unless in a capital case, but if any gentleman did offer to defend the prisoner, he would feel much obliged by his doing so.
   Mr. Coffey said, though unwilling to volunteer in such a case, still, as it would relieve his lordship of a good deal of trouble, if the court wished it he would be happy to defend the prisoner.
   Court—I would feel much obliged by your doing so.
   Mr. Malcolmson, C.E., described the place where the occurrence was said to have taken place ; he made a map of the place.
   Anne Allman, the mother of the child, who is only 6½ years of age, was examined—The prisoner was servant of the child's father ; on the 28th of May went to look for the prisoner, to the garden ; saw the prisoner and the child under the hedge. The witness then described the position of the prisoner and her child. The evidence is unfit for publication.
   The witness was cross-examined at great length by Mr. Coffey, but did not deviate from her direct testimony.
   John Allman, on coming on the table, admitted he was only nine years of age. On being asked the nature of an oath, he stated a person giving a false oath would be sent to hell.
   In reply to Mr. Coffey he said it was his father told him what to answer when he would be asked the nature of an oath.
   The Court examined the boy at some length and permitted him to be sworn. Examined by Mr. Barry, Q.C.—Is brother to Catherine Allman ; knows the prisoner ; was in a field one day a week before the occurrence complained of with his sister and the prisoner ; the prisoner said to him “Go home, your mamma will be looking for you;” witness said he would not ; the prisoner then introduced hide and go seek ; they went hiding ; the prisoner and his sister went together ; he found them out ; the boy then described having seen the prisoner and his sister in the position before testified to, and heard her say “Danny, let me go.”
   Mr. Coffey examined the witness, and in reply to Mr. Coffey, he said he was sworn and his information taken down.
   Mr. Coffey then asked the Crown to produce that information.
   Mr. Barry and Mr. Henn said they never saw that information.
   Mr. Coffey—It is obligatory on the Crown to produce it in order to test the boy's accuracy.
   The Court ruled as the Crown were not giving evidence of what the boy said at petty sessions, they need not produce it.
   Mr. Barry said he would examine one of the magistrates who were present.
   Mr. M'Gillicuddy Egar, examined, deposed that the boy was examined at petty sessions, but as the transaction he deposed to had not reference to the charge they did not take his information.
   Court—We now know why this information has not been produced. The magistrates did not consider it necessary, but I consider they took an erroneous view of the matter.
   Dr. Sugrue was examined as to the appearance the child presented. His evidence was that there was no appearance of violation—nothing that may not be caused by natural causes.
   The prosecution then closed.
   Mr. Coffey addressed the jury on behalf of the prisoner.
   The Court charged the jury, first returning thanks to Mr. Coffey for his able defence of the prisoner. Having reviewed the evidence, and remarked on the non-production of the child, as from her tender age she could not be examined, he said the case was wholly dependent on the mother's evidence, which it was unnecessary for him to go over. He then referred to the evidence of the medical gentleman, and left the whole case in the hands of the jury.
   The jury retired and had not found a verdict when the post was being made up.

ON Sunday evening another of those disgraceful crimes —violation—for which Kerry has attained a most unhappy notoriety for the last few years, took place within four miles of this town on a farm-girl called O'Brennan. It appears that the girl who has been the victim of this dreadful offence was a farm servant, and the man (whose name is John Lane) is also a farm servant. On Sunday evening he lay in wait for the girl as she was driving cows, and after a desperate resistance completed his hellish purpose. Information of the outrage having been given to the authorities early on Monday morning, Mr. Maguire, Sub-Inspector, with his usual promptitude, despatched two of his men, in coloured clothes, to the locality ; and they succeeded in arresting Lane about two o'clock p.m. He was immediately brought into Tralee, and the girl's depositions taken by Mr. J. D. Cruise, R.M., and informations returned against Lane to the present assizes. His trial will take place this day or early to-morrow, when, in all probability, he will be found guilty and punished severely. 
   A similar case occurred this time twelve months, when three men committed a like offence a few days before the then coming assizes ; they were immediately arrested, tried, and sentenced to twenty years' penal servitude each.—Tralee Correspondent.

   SHOCKING MURDER AT ARDMORE.—The peaceful neighbourhood of Ardmore has been disturbed by a very shocking murder, which took place here about one o'clock on Sunday. The occurrence arose from some quarrel between an old woman named Catherine Foley and her daughter, Norry Foley. When the police came in they found Norry Foley in the act of beating the body of her mother, who was completely dead ; and when the body was examined it was found that there were several wounds about the head, which seemed to have been inflicted by the legs of a stool, and several cuts on the head and elsewhere, inflicted by a knife. It is reported that the young woman who committed the murder has been this long time out of her mind. The deceased was over sixty years of age, and her daughter twenty-seven. It appears they were alone in the house, and had a quarrel about eggs, which ended in the daughter lifting a stool and battering her mother's brains out.—Waterford Mail.

FEARFUL SCENE—HEROIC CONDUCT.— As Bell's troupe of equestrians were proceeding through George's-street, Kingstown, on Tuesday, previous to the mid-day performance, a man named Kelly, a shoemaker, incautiously got too near the van containing the lions, for the purpose of teasing them, when one of the beasts caught his arm in her talons and dragged it into the cage, lacerating it in a fearful manner—literally tearing all the flesh away from the shoulder downwards. The lion also clutched at his face. It was a fearful moment of suspense—the people about the cage were bewildered, and totally powerless to render the least assistance. Mr. Batty, the great lion tamer, seeing how matters stood, rushed boldly into the cage, and beat the brute with a loaded whip which he carried, and succeeded in forcing the lioness to let go her prey. But for Mr. Batty's intrepid conduct and timely assistance, the unfortunate man would have been torn to piece [sic]. To save the man's life it was deemed necessary to amputate the arm. The operation was skillfully performed by Dr. Plant, of Monkstown, and Dr. Wilkinson, of Blackrock, ably assisted by Dr. Spears, R.N., now on leave of absence from his ship, and who had much experience in amputating during the Crimean war.—Freeman

MR E. LAUGERI, of the firm of LAUGERI and GOIDANICH, Ship Agents, Queenstown, has been appointed agent for the Genoese Insurance Societies.

INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION.—We notice a remark made in the Leamington Spa Courier that Mr. J. Morris Hogan, the eminent pianist and composer (and formerly of this city), played before Her Royal Highness the Princess Mary and suite, accompanied by several of the Royal Commissioners in the French Court of the Exhibition on last Wednesday. This gentleman, we remember, had the honour conferred upon him of playing before Her Majesty the Queen and court on the event of Her Majesty's visit to Staneleigh Abbey, the seat of Lord Leigh, Lord Lieutenant of the county of Warwickshire. —Correspondent.
YESTERDAY as some parties belonging to Queenstown were returning from a pleasure party at Crosshaven, the boat capsized in a squall off Camden Fort. All hands were precipitated into the water, but fortunately by aid of the Crosshaven constabulary the entire number were saved. Two of the party, however, are still seriously affected by the accident.

   PETROLEUM IN LIVERPOOL.—The proper disposal of vessels laden with petroleum oil was discussed by the Mercy [sic] Dock Board on Thursday. It is said that this dangerous material, once ignited, is inextinguishable by water ; and it may readily be imagined what mischief might be committed in a place like Liverpool, if a petroleum laden ship were to catch fire. It was stated, during the discussion, that an Act of Parliament would shortly give full powers to the Board to act in cases like the present.

THE Judges of Assize, General Bloomfield, and a select party, were entertained at dinner on yesterday by Mr. Daniel Donegan, High Sheriff, at his residence, Carrigmore.
