|GOLEEN PETTY SESSIONSSATURDAY.|
(Before Messrs. HUNGERFORD and NOTTER.)
|WM. PEER, civil bill officer, Skull, with John Minihane, assistant, appeared to prosecute two parties named Leary and Connolly, for having on the 24th ult., at Goleen fair, rescued three pigs, which complainants had seized in virtue of a decree obtained against defendants, at the suit of Mr. Swanton, for meal.
From the nature of Minihane's evidence, in whose keeping the pigs were left by Peer, it did not appear there was much resistance offered to the rescue, he being a rather poor substitute to oppose the defendants, who merely shoved him away and drove off with the pigs, and subsequently sold them. Leary, one of the defendants, had left for England previous to the court-day, most likely having depended on the proceeds of the sale for his being able to leave.
Informations were returned to the Bantry Quarter Sessions.
John Downy v. Cunningham ; Cunningham v. Downy.
This was for an assault and stone throwing, and the Magistrates, after a very patient hearing, fined Downy for striking Cunningham in the head with a stone 10s. and costs, and the other party who was not totally immaculate five shillings.
Richard Love v. Wm. M'Carthy ; Same v. Denis Healy ; Wm. M'Carthy v. Richard Love ; Denis Healy v. Same ; John Lamb v. Denis Healy ; Denis Healy v. John Lamb.
All these cases arose out of, in the first instance, indulging a little at Goleen fair, and, secondly, there being a not very good feeling existing. It was proved by an intelligent witness that the origin of it was in Love's striking Healy through fun and knocking him down (a regular Donnybrook definition of what we may deem fun.) Healy, it appears did not consider that he was able to bring as many available combatants as he would wish to avenge the insult, the other being a pretty strong force, and like an able general reserved his opportunity and pocketed the affront until he found the enemy in a less favourable position, whereupon he asked of him why he struck him, calling him at the same time by the not very flattering cognomen of souper.¹ Love denied his having struck at all, and the term souper was repudiated by both Love and Lamb, they being of the real genuine kind. A fracas then ensued, in which Love got the worst of it, he having been worsted by his opponent, M'Carthy, who took the affair out of Healy's hands ; the latter, however, not liking to be idle, thought he may as well give Lamb an idea of what he was able to do. The charge was proved very strongly against M'Carthy by Love's witness, and the word souper was made a great point of by both Love and Lamb, in introducing it too often in the evidence.
The Magistrates, after private consultation, inflicted the following penalties:On William M'Carthy, 5s. and costs ; Denis Healy, 5s. and costs ; Richard Love, 1s. and costs ; and dismissed the case and cross case of Lamb v. Healy.

| STOPPAGE OF A CONTRABAND VESSEL AT CORK.The Liverpool Journal of Commerce has received information that the British steamer Antona, taking ammunition on board at Cork, has been stopped by order of the British Government on the ground that the supplies of powder, &c., were intended for the Southern Confederacy. The same journal has reason to believe that despatches have been received, remonstrating with the British Government for allowing on previous occasions privateers and vessels laden with ammunition to be built and fitted out in British ports.|
THE PEAT IRON.
| The success of the experiments lately made in the adaptation of peat fuel to the manufature of iron will probably have considerable interest for such of our readers as have directed their attention to the development of this useful and economical process. That this success will essentially prove complete there is abundant reason to anticipate, as Mr. Murrall, the Manager of the Creevelea Iron Company, now reports that the process of smelting the iron ore with the condensed peat fuel has been successfully pursued for four days continuouslyindeed, until the entire stock of fuel supplied for the purpose of the experiment had been consumed. Notwithstanding that a very inferior limestone has been employed as flux, 25 cwt. of pig iron has been produced whose quality is equal to the finest Swedish Iron. A sample of the iron thus made (25 lbs. weight) by the adaptation of peat fuel, together with specimens of cinders, peculiarly worth notice from their purity, may be seen at Mr. Simpson's Seed Warehouse, No. 1, College-green. Saunders' of this day.||
|QUEENSTOWN PETTY SESSIONS.|
IMPORTANT TO SEAMEN.
(Before Capt. Martin, R.N., and Maurice Power, M.D.)
|WILLIAM M'BETH, boatswain of the Australian emigrant ship Wanata, at Queenstown, summoned Mr. Michael Murphy, the master of said ship, for £1 9s. 0d., ten days' wages.
M'Beth being sworn, saidI was boatswain of the Wanata ; I joined the ship at London ; on arriving at Queenstown the crew of the ship complained of their accomodation in the forecastle ; I brought it under notice of one of the ship's officers, who promised to put up two more berths in it ; I said why should not the men have as good room as the passengers ; the chief mate reported me to the master, and said he would not have me on any account on board ; I said I would leave the ship if Captain Murphy told me to do so ; the captain told me to leave, and I did so ; I returned to the ship in the evening for my clothes and discharge, but I was not allowed on board ; I have not been discharged by the master ; I got an advance note for my month's wages, £4 10s. ; I got money for the note from a friend of mine, the master of the London Sailor's Home.
Cross-examined by Mr. O'BryenHave you the note now?You know I have not the note.
Mr. O'BryenIf you give up the note now I will give you the wages due.
M'BethI cannot give up the note as it is in London.
Mr. O'Bryen read an analagous caseM'Kane v. Joynsonreported in Maclachlan's Treatise on the Law of Merchant Shipping, and contended that as M'Beth had got value for the advanced note, and as he did not desert the ship, but left by mutual agreement, the owners of the Wanata were liable for the amount of the note. He also contended that as the time for paying the amount of the advance note, three days after the ship sailing from Queenstown, had not expired the note was not due.
The Court ruled that as the seaman had received the amount of £4 10s., a full month's wages, they had no power to make an order for the sum claimed. The case was dismissed, leaving the complainant the power of suing the owners for nine days' wages in case they refused to pay the holder of the advance note the amount for which it was passed.
As the present state of the law upon advance notes was somewhat ambiguous, the chairman, Capt. Martin, drew up a case for the law advisers' opinion.
Messrs. James Scott and Co., are the agents for the ship.
DUBLIN SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE.
|THE fine ship Sultana, of Dublin, one of Messrs John Martin & Son's fleet, arrived in Dublin bay on the night of the 10th instant, 18 days from Quebec, having accomplished the entire voyage out and home, including detention at port of loading, in the short period of 58 days, which we believe is within one day of being the quickest voyage to and from Quebec on record.
The following are her dates, viz. :Sailed from Dublin on 13th September, arrived at Quebec on 13th October, sailed thence with full cargo on 23d October, and arrived in Dublin Bay on the night of the 10th inst.
We also noticed the arrival at Kingstown last night of the well-known ship Rienzi, 912 tons registered, another of the above-named firm's ships, she having accomplished the same voyage as the Sultana in the same time within a few hours. Such achievements are alike creditable to ships and owners, and speak highly of the energy of the respective captains, Samuel M'Intosh and Wm. Murphy.
POLICE OFFICETHIS DAY.
(Before the MAYOR and W. J. SHAW.)
|THE number of prisoners in the dock this morning was only six. Of these five were drunkards, three of whom were fined 1s. each, and the other two discharged, it being their first offence. The other prisoner was an old woman named Julia Cronin, who was put forward charged with begging. She was remanded until 3 o'clock. An old woman named M'Carthy was charged with stealing a piece of meat from the English market, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a month's imprisonment.
The only other cases before the bench were a few summonses for the peace and assaults, with the exception of two or three summonses brought by policemen against ginglemen for leaving their cars and horses on the road without any one to take care of them. The offenders were fined 1s. and costs each.
| THE LATE MR. BROPHY, STATE DENTIST, &c.The will of this respected gentleman, when opened, was found to contain a somewhat peculiar proviso. Amongst the legacies bequeathed was one of £60 to Dr. Fleming, of Merrion-square, accompanied by an injunction to that gentleman to cut off his head prior to his being buried. It appears that Mr. Brophy had, for many years past, entertained a fear that he would be buried alive ; and to guard against this he caused the extraordinary proviso we have referred to to be introduced into his will.Irish Times.|
| FRIGHTFUL DEATH BY FIRE THROUGH CRINOLINE.An inquiry was held at Guy's Hospital, before Mr. Payne, at a late hour last Thursday night, respecting the death of Anne Mary Goodenus, aged 16 years, of Adam-place, Rotherhithe. On last Monday night about six o'clock, she with loud shrieks rushed out into the garden, with all her clothes in a mass of flames. As she was getting out of the garden-gate her father caught her in his arms, but she struggled frantically and got free, her father being severely injured by the flames. At last a working-man coming by, threw her down, and taking off his jacket, with it partially extinguished the burning mass. She was taken to the hospital, where she died on Wednesday. Deceased wore crinoline, and she told her mother that as she was near the fire in the parlour a spark flew out and ignited her dress. The witness said that deceased flew into the garden and street a flame of firethe sight was appalling. The jury returned a verdict, That deceased was accidentally burnt to death.|
