The Cork Examiner, 1 June 1863
   The prisoner calling himself James Smith was brought up for further examination on Friday at the Bow-street Office, on the several charges of indecently assaulting young women in a state of pregnancy. The prisoner still refused to give his real name or address. There were three new charges against him, almost in every respect similar to those already detailed. The last case heard, and that on which the prisoner was apprehended, was that of Maria Whalen, a single woman living with her mother at New-street, Golden-square, who on Saturday, the 23rd May was called on by the prisoner and offered a sitaution as wetnurse, and induced to go with him in a cab. They drove first to Theobalds-road, where the prisoner alighted and spoke to a lady, who he said was a daughter of the lady whose medical attendant he was, and whose child she was to nurse. But he afterwards returned to the cab, which conveyed them to a brothel in Picket-street. She unsuspectingly went into a room upstairs, where he said it would be necessary to examine her. He began taking liberties with her, and on her saying she did not like his proceedings, he said “Don't fear. I shall not hurt you ;” and then said he would go down to speak to the lady she was going to. It then turned out that a policeman who had been called to the house met him on the stairs, and asked him if he brought a young woman into the house. He said she was upstairs, and obligingly stepped aside for the policeman to pass him, but was requested to go up himself and show the way. He did so, and then seized his hat and rushed to the door, but was prevented from going out. Having asked the girl a few questions, the policeman took the prisoner into custody, when he wished to settle the affair at the house by bribery, but was not listened to and conveyed to the station. On his way there, he said he had been in the army, but did not hold a commission at that time, and again desired to settle the matter. On arriving at the station he wrote a note. There was a great deal of opposition on the part of the prisoner's solicitor to anything relating to this note being given in evidence, or a copy of it, which the inspector of police had in court, being read. Notice was given to the gentleman addressed to produce it, but failing, a summons was granted by Mr. Henry against Colonel Cole to produce the letter which the prisoner had addressed to him. The inspector also stated that the letter mentioned the name of a lady, but he could not produce her attendance as she was in waiting on her Majesty. The witnesses in the cases were then bound over to attend the trial at the Old Bailey Sessions on the 8th of June, but the prisoner will be again brought up when the letter is produced. After the case had been disposed of a constable, A 325, entered the witness box, and stated that having just seen the prisoner he recognised him as a man who was taken into custody by him and charged at the Marylebone Police-court, three years ago, with having committed a similar assault upon the wife of a sweep, but the case was settled by paying the woman £25, and as she did not appear again the charge was dismissed. The name given on that occasion by the prisoner could not be told without referring to the books. [see also 16 July 1863]
   Exparte Power, re Power.—Mr. J. B. Murphy opened the petition in this matter on behalf of the committee of the lunatic, that the maintenance allowance should be increased from £2,400 to £2,800 per annum. The net rental of the estate of the lunatic amounted to £2,900, after the payment of the maintenance allowance, and the ground on which the petition was presented was that the increased allowance was necessary, and as consequential on placing the next-of-kin of the lunatic in suitable positions in life, &c. The lunatic, who resides in the county of Waterford, has six children, and is about 80 years of age.
   The Lord Chancellor directed that he should be furnished with a schedule of the payments made from time to time to the lunatic's relations out of his property, and how these payments were allocated at present ; and that he would look over the matter in chamber.

   INJURY TO MONT BLANC.—We regret to say that the valuable race-horse (the property of John Hubert Moore, Esq.) met with a serious accident on Thursday, in a horse box, at the Limerick Junction. He travelled in good health and prime condition, after walking over for the Tipperary stakes the day previous. He was put into a box at the junction by his owner, and the boy with him. The servant of the company shunted the box over upon the Limerick line, and the train coming up came into collision with the box. From the sudden concussion the muscles of the neck and hinder quarters of the horse are most materially injured and prevent him from running in his engagement at Mullingar, where he had an excellent chance of winning. Though Mr. Moore was himself in the train, the company's servants took the horse out of the box in which he received the injury and put him into another without ever informing him of the occurrence until he went to take out his horse ; Kildare, when he found him lamed and mutilated. The boy was very much injured.—Saunders.

   BANKRUPTS.—William Thornton, of 94, William-street, South, in the city of Dublin, housepainter and decorator, to surrender on Tuesday, the 9th of June, and on Tuesday, the 23d of June. James Sherrard, of Bishop-street, in the city of Londonderry, grocer and seedsman, to surrender on Tuesday, the 9th of June, and on Friday, the 27th of June. John Nortin, of Mullinahome, in the county of Tipperary, dealer in leather and shoemaker, to surrender on Tuesday, the 9th of June, and on Friday the 26th of June. Albert White of Tower-hill, in the city of Waterford, shipbuilder, to surrender on Tuesday, the 9th of June, and on Friday the 22d of June.

   THE MAGISTRACY.—Patrick Maxwell Cullinan, Esq., M.D., of Harmony House, Ennis, has been appointed to the commission of the peace for the county of Clare. Thomas Davies Mahon, Esq., of Hamstead, Ballymacward, Ballinasloe, and Edward Browne, Esq., of Rosleague, Letterfrack, have also been appointed to the commission of the peace for the county of Galway.

   THE WINNER OF THE DERBY.—The public charities of Liverpool have good reason to thank Maccaroni for his gallant pull over Lord Clifden on Epsom Downs, as Mr. Naylor, the owner of the winner, who is a resident of Liverpool, has just handed to the Mayor of Liverpool the handsome sum of £1,000 to be distributed amongst the different charities of the town.

The Cork Examiner, 6 June 1863
WE have just been handed by a respectable fellow- citizen a letter from Nenagh, dated the 5th (yesterday), from which we extract the following:—
   “There is quite a melancholy thrown over the town this day by the brutal murder of ANDREW JACKSON, of Mountpleasant. He left his house yesterday morning in slippers as usual, and never was seen afterwards, until about two o'clock this morning, when he was found in a grove, within a few yards of his own door, with his skull broken and his brains protruding. This is all that is known of the foul deed up to the time I write. An inquest will be held to-morrow. Poor fellow, he was a close, honest man, and I never heard anything against him.”
   We learn from the gentleman who handed us the letter that Mr. JACKSON was a gentleman of considerable property, the son of the late Major Jackson. In character and demeanour he was very inoffensive. Not many years since he was married to a young lady of great beauty, a Miss SMITHWICK, whose destiny it seems to have to mourn tragic occurrences. She is sister of Miss SMITHWICK whose fate excited the widest public sympathy a few years since. When walking by the Puffin Hole, at Kilkee, in company with Colonel PEPPER, to whom she was engaged to be married, a wave from the treacherous cavern engulphed her and her lover at once.

   June 1, to the inexpressible grief of her family and numerous friends, Mrs. Hearn, wife of Joseph Hearn, Esq., of Tramore, for many years master mariner trading from the port of Waterford.

   Their Lordships sat this morning to take into consideration the claim of Henry John, Earl of Shrewsbury and Talbot, and Earl of Waterford, in Ireland, to the office and dignity of Lord High Steward of Ireland, as being attached to his other titles.
   Mr. Hannen appeared for the claimant, and the Attorney-General watched the case on behalf the Crown.
   It appeared that this office was attached to the titles of Earl of Shrewsbury and Talbot and Earl of Waterford, and the claimant, having some time since duly made out his claim to those titles, now prayed that it might be declared that he was also Lord High Steward of Ireland.
   After the production of some documentary evidence, their Lordships decided that the claimant had satisfactorily made out his claim.

   We (News) have been favoured with an Australian telegram, which informs us that the Queen of the Colonies has arrived at Brisbane. This is interesting news for the friends of the emigrants by that ship from Ireland.
   The prisoner who under the fictitious name of James Smith has been several times examined at Bow-street for outrages on women, was brought up yesterday, when his real name was found to be Arthur Robert Willoughby Wade, Adjutant of the Surrey Rifles, Guildford. He was committed for trial. No application was made for bail. [see also 16 July 1863]

   LONGEVITY.—On Monday last Mrs. Mary Mullins departed this life at Garryowen at the advanced age of 103 years. She was a grand-daughter of one of the heroines who were engaged in the bloody defence of the Black Battery at the siege of Limerick. She had possession of all her mental faculties to the last, and was never known to have been ill. —Munster News.

   The sitting member this morning withdrew all further defence. The Committee passed six resolutions. The first declared Mr. Barbour himself and his agents are adjudged guilty of bribery and treating. The Committee find that Samuel Corry was bribed to personate his father, deceased. Mr. Barbour himself, it is found, endeavoured to corrupt Bannister, a voter. The voters were guarded by armed men in Mr. Barbour's factory, and subjected, besides, to treating and undue influence. Verner will stand.—Mail.

   On Wednesday Mr. H. Raffles Walthew, deputy coroner, held an inquiry at the Prince of Wales Tavern, Victoria Park, respecting the death of Captain George William Harper, aged 44 years, who committed suicide under very melancholy circumstances.
   J. Russell, engine driver, said, that last Friday morning was walking along the banks of the Regent's Canal when he noticed the deceased floating on the surface. The body was got out. When searched the portrait of a young lady was found in one of the pockets. It was a photograph. There was also the following letter, the edges of which were burned:—
   “Martha,—Through what I have been accused of I have been driven to commit this dreadful act. May God have mercy on my soul, and conduct you in the paths of virtue. Adieu from me in this world.—G.H.”
   Witness said that there were also some receipts for money received found in deceased's pockets, but only 6d. in money.
   Mr. J. I. Brown, 32, Willow-walk, East Bermondsey, contractor, said that deceased had been the captain of a ship trading from London to China. Two or three years ago he got sunstroke in Hong Kong which affected his sight. He came to witness when he returned and told him that he had a few hundred pounds, and that he would invest it in a shop. He took a pawnbroker's shop in Grundy-street, Poplar, but it failed. He called on witness a few days ago, and said that he was ruined. His loss of sight and his failure caused him to lose his mind. He said he would drown himself. He had a wife and three children, but they left him four months ago, and went to Passage, in Ireland. Since then he was accused of forming an improper intimacy with the young lady whose portrait was found on him. Witness did not know who that lady was. The quarrel with his wife did not arise out of that affair. Deceased had been the captain of some of the finest ships in the port of London. Witness did not know of his own knowledge the details of the affair with the young lady, but deceased was said to have caused her to become enciente.
   Mr. E. Myhill Davey, M.R.C.S., said that he was sent for on last Friday morning, and found the deceased dead on the bank. He had been in the water apparently about two hours.
   The Coroner then summed up and remarked upon the deplorable circumstances of the case.
   The jury returned a verdict of suicide while of unsound mind.

   HILLSBOROUGH, JUNE 3.—Another Orange demonstration took place in Loughbrickland, in this county [Down], yesterday, when over 100 Orangemen, with fifes and drums, marched through the town playing tunes. On leaving they flung a stone through the window of a house belonging to Patrick Manahan, and also flung stones at the police, who followed them for the purpose of identifying some of them, but they were all strangers, and came from the direction of Scarva. I did not hear if any of the police were injured. —Freeman.
   Richard Bolton, Esq., Donaghmoyne, county Monaghan, has been appointed to the commission of the peace for the county Monaghan.

The Cork Examiner, 19 June 1863
A SPECIAL court, comprising Messrs. D. J. Cruise, R.M., J. M. Bernard, Henry Leahy, and R. Murphy, was held at Killarney, on Monday, for the purpose of hearing a complaint preferred by Capt. Ellis, R.N., against Joseph Ahern, the son of Mr. D. Ahern, emigration agent, Killarney, for having on the 2nd June, and on several previous occasions, committed a breach of the 75th section of the 18th and 19 Vic., c. 119, commonly called the Passenger Act, 1855. From the evidence adduced by Mr, Alexander Murphy, who conducted the complaint, it appeared that the defendant went to an emigrant named Sullivan who had booked with Mr. D. Shea (though he had previously made inquiries at Ahern's respecting the fare) and asked him that that were “fairer” than Shea ; that their charge was £5, and that the other's was six guineas, and that his (defendant's) father would accompany him and other emigrants to Cork. Mr. Murphy quoted the Act, and stated that convictions had been obtained at Nenagh, Parsonstown, and other places, though the towns in which they were committed were not within five miles of a seaport, as was stated by the magistrates. Mr. T. R. Wilson, who represented the defendant, read the third section of the above Act, being the interpretation clause, which went to say that persons soliciting intending emigrants in port, towns, or places, within five miles of a port town, and which clause defined a person to be an emigration runnner. Mr. Murphy was of the opinion that the defendant was a “runner,” but the magistrates decided on adjourning the case for the opinion of the Law Advisers, whether the Act includes the defendant to be an emigration runnner, and if so, whether an offense committed more than five miles from the nearest port town comes under the Act.—Killarney Correspondent.

   SECRET SOCIETIES IN THE NORTH.—The clergy of the united diocese of Down and Connor, by the order of the Most Rev. Dr. Denvir, have been lately engaged in cautioning their hearers against the countenancing of parties who, it would appear, are administering a secret oath to such thoughtless young men as can be induced to join in their mode redressing the wrongs which afflict Ireland. The form of the oath, we are informed, is i the hands of his lordship, and the gentlemen whose mission it is to recruit for the Irish Republic “that is to be” have commenced operations in Belfast and some other populous districts of the North.—Castlebar Telegraph.
