The Cork Examiner, 2 June 1862
(Before Messrs. M. M'NAMARA and LAMBKIN.)
   John Barrett, a boy apparently about twelve years of age, was put forward by Constable Scanlan, charged with being a deserter from the band of the 28th regiment. In answer to a question from the bench the prisoner acknowledged that he was a deserter. The magistrates directed him to be remanded until the military authorities could be communicated with.
   John Parker was charged by Constable Carson, detective, with being a deserter from the 12th regiment. The Constable said he found the prisoner concealed in the fireroom of the Liverpool steamer on last Saturday. The bench directed the authorities to be written to.
   Informations were ordered against a woman named Maria Kelly for attempting to pick the pocket of a lady in Patrick-street, on last Saturday.
   Catherine Critchley, the wife of a sergeant of the 48th regiment, was put forward charged with stealing a gold pin and two earrings from the shop of Mr. Tate, Patrick-street.
   Mr. Tate was sworn and said—I am a jeweller in Patrick-street ; on last evening the prisoner, Esther Crutchley, with her husband and another soldier [came in]. She said that she wanted to buy a pin to make a present of it ; she asked me to show her some pins, and she selected one of them which I put on the counter before me ; she then took another pin off the counter and closed her hand on it ; she asked me to show her some earrings which I did, and she selected a pair which I fastened on her ears ; after the earrings were put on she asked to see some studs ; I showed the studs and she took three of the studs and attempted to drop them into her pocket ; I charged her with stealing the studs and the pin ; she gave back the studs but said she had no pin ; I sent for the police, and after about five minutes she raised up the body of her dress and gave me the pin which was pinned firmly into the skirt ; she then left the shop and I followed her, and came up to her in Prince's-street and caught her by the arm ; she struck me with a basket she had in her hand, and kept beating me until the police came up.
   An assistant in the shop was examined ; his evidence was to the same effect as Mr. Tate's.
   An application was made, on the part of Mr. Julian, to have the case adjourned, as he could not attend on this morning.
   The Bench refused to comply with the application as there was a prima facie case against the prisoners. They would order informations.
   Informations were ordered against Mary Murphy, the daughter of a lodginghouse-keeper in Fishamble-lane, for robbing John Leary, a countryman, of £9, while sleeping at her mother's house on last Saturday.

THE gunboat “Magpie” has left for Plymouth to receive repairs. Her place in the harbour will be taken by the Racer gunboat.
   The detachments of the 12th regiment, 2nd battalion, quartered at Spike Island, Haulbowline, Rocky, Forts Carlisle and Camden, have left with their head- quarters of the regiment for the Curragh, there to remain during the exercise season. Equal complements from the 2nd bat. 18th Royal Irish, have arrived to replace the 12th in the above mentioned garrisons.

THE steamtug “Pilot” of Galway, Captain M'Intyre, put into the harbour on Saturday to fill up with coal on her way to Dublin. Having been duly supplied she left for her destination, there to undergo some repairs.
   The screw steamer “Despatch,” of and from Liverpool, arrived on Saturday for repairs. She is bound to Nassau with a general cargo, which, it is said, is intended to be finally discharged at some of the blockaded ports of the Southern States.

   A man named Kelly has been committed to Clonmel gaol for having, as is alleged, attacked two men named Fitzgerald, who had taken a farm out of which he was, it is said, evicted by the Irish Land Company.
DINGLE, SATURDAY EVENING.—A few days ago a bottle, which was well corked, has been washed ashore in a cliff not far from this town, and in the bottle there was a piece of paper, 8 ½ inches in length and five broad, and at the top in printed letters there is the following :—
“Hamburg American Packet, Actien Gesellichaft.”
   From that down, sixteen lines, are all in writing, but in [illegible] English language. Indeed it appears as if it were a passenger's passage ticket.—Dingle Correspondent

   THE FOUNDER OF THE CHRISTY MINSTRELS.—A New York letter, dated May 13th, contains the following:—“You have all heard, or at least read of, the Christy Minstrels. On the 8th of this month, E. P. Christy, the original negro minstrel, attempted to commit suicide by jumping out of the second-storey window of his residence, No. 78, East Eighteenth-street. He is fatally injured, though not dead, this morning. His history is a singular one. He made the first great success of the Italian opera. He was from Buffalo—a rough in that place, with a good voice ; he got a company of singers. He picked up a boy named George, to whom he gave his name, and he made it [sic] famous as George Christy. Succeeding so well in Buffalo, Ned Christy determined to try a larger field, and came to New York. Here he was almost drowned with success. Crowds thronged this place nightly, and hundreds were turned away because there was no room. He coined money, and was enabled to sport diamond breast-pins and rings worth 5,000 dollars. With his aptitude for the delineation of negro character, he seemed to acquire also the peculiar habits of the negro, and a desire to display an enormous quantity of jewellery. Women fell in love with him. He was the rage. He bought houses—owned John Brougham's Theatre —kept race-horses—bought heavily in stocks—gave magnificent feeds—and this continued for years. When the war broke out, he took it into his head that the rebels would land in the city, capture it, and deprive him of his property, in consequence of his endeavours to make the negro character of consequence. The result has been very distressing. In the midst of affluence he thought of nothing but his probable poverty, and he who has caused millions to be convulsed with laughter sat by his own fireside day after day, a picture of the deepest woe. Such is life.”
   THE GREAT EASTERN.—LIVERPOOL, MAY 28.—To-day intelligence was received in Liverpool that the Great Eastern had arrived out at New York on the morning of the 17th instant, after a very rapid passage of nine days five hours, she having left Milford late in the evening of the 7th instant. As the big ship was to sail from New York, direct for Liverpool, on the 31st of may (Saturday next), she may be looked for here on the evening of Monday, the 9th, or early on the following morning.

   NAVAL APPOINTMENTS.—Lieutenant - Arthur G. C. Tait, to the Racehorse. Midshipman - The Marquis of Queensberry, to the Nile. Master's Assistant Supernumerary - Charles Brent Masters, to the Royal Adelaide. Engineer - W. H. Lowman, promoted from the Fisguard [sic] to the Rapid (additional). Acting Engineer - John S. Scylla, promoted.

MR BARRY held an inquest on Saturday on the body of James Collins, late of the gunboat “Porpoise.” The corpse was discovered on Friday floating in the river above Whitepoint. The remains were identified by the clothing which bore the name of the deceased, the features of his person being completely gone. Collins when returning to his vessel on the 6th ult., fell overboard, and until now nothing was known of him. A verdict of accidental death was returned.

IN a special court held on Saturday by Captain MARTIN and Mr. T. H. TARRANT,
   Julia Reardon was brought up, having been arrested by Sub-Constable Mahony when about embarking for America in the City of Washington, on Thursday, charged with absconding from her home near Mallow with a sum of £14 and some articles of clothing, the property of her aunt, with whom she resided.
   The case having been sufficiently proved, the prisoner was ordered to stand her trial at the next Quarter Sessions.

Baldwin v. Bradford.
   This was an action brought by Mr. Wm. Baldwin, of Lisardagh House, against Mr. Wm. Bradford, of Patrick- street, for a sum of £20, under the following circumstance : It appeared that in the month of November last, Mrs. Baldwin sent a gold watch to Mr. Bradford to be cleaned. In the month of January last the watch was returned with the cylinder broken. Mrs. Baldwin sent the watch back, demanding that it should be repaired free of all cost, and Mr. Bradford has not since returned it.
   The defence set up was that the cylinder was broken at the time the watch had been sent to Mr. Bradford's, and that he was quite ready to give it up on the cost of mending the cylinder being paid.
   His Worship suspended the decree and directed the watch to be given up, Mrs. Baldwin paying 7s. to Mr. Bradford.

   QUEENSTOWN, WEDNESDAY.—The Liverpool, New York, and Philadelphia Co's, s.s. Edinburgh, from New York on 24th ult., arrived in this harbour this morning. She brings the United States mails, 86 cabin and 153 steerage passengers. Having landed the mails, 20 cabin and 30 steerage passengers, she proceeded immediately for Liverpool—all well.
   On May 26th the Edinburgh spoke the barque Fisher, bound west. On the 26th the ship Robert Spears bound east. On the 30th, the R.M.S. Persia. On June 1st she signalled the ships Trafalgar and Gorilla of Liverpool, bound west. The news brought by the Edinburgh has been generously anticipated by the Jura at Londonderry.

   Intelligence was received yesterday of the capture by a Federal ship of the English steamer Circassian, of Savannah, bound to that port from Bordeaux, laden with wine, brandy, coffee, and provisions, having no munitions or contraband of war of any description.
   The Shipping Gazetts says :—“The seizure of the Circassian, pursuing, as we are informed, a lawful commerce in neutral waters, following so closely on the capture of the Bermuda, discovers a disposition to deal harshly with British shipping, which must be checked with a strong hand ; otherwise maritime commerce will be unsafe for British shipping throughout the length and breadth of the Atlantic.”

   Earl Russell has communicated to the Postmaster General a copy of a despatch from Mr. Seward to Lord Lyons, which states that the mails are now allowed to pass to and from New Orleans and other places, which having heretofore being seized by Insurgent forces have since been recovered, and are now occupied by the land and naval forces of the United States. Mr. Seward, however, adds that a military surveillance is maintained over such mails so far as the Government finds it necessary for the public safety.

DINGLE, SATURDAY EVENING.—The weather in this part of the country still continues very unfavourable for all sorts of vegetation. The condition of the growing crops in general is unsatisfactory, and nothing else could be expected under the circumstances, for the summer hitherto has been unprecedentedly cold, stormy, and wet. Unless we are blessed with some dry weather speedily, it is to be feared that the consequences here will be most disastrous.
   I regret to state that the potato blight has already appeared in the western part of this county. . . .
