The Cork Examiner, 2 September 1863
   A WOMAN SHOT BY A VOLUNTEER OFFICER.—A painful affair took place at Newcastle-on-Tyne, on Saturday evening, a female named Isabella Welsh having been shot by a volunteer in the Newcastle Rifles, named Ensign Jas. M'Cree. The injured woman is the wife of the sexton of St. Andrew's Church. Mr. M'Cree is a partner in the extensive firm of M'Cree and Thompson, timber merchants, in that town. It appears that on Saturday night, some persons were standing near his timber-yard in Gallowgate, and were ordered away by him. They did not go, and he left the spot, but shortly afterwards returned with a gun, and asked them if they would leave. On seeing the firearm they at once moved off, but had not gone far when he discharged it, the contents entering the leg, below the knee, of Mrs. Welsh, who was passing. She was carried to her own home, and was attended by Dr, Scott, who expressed his opinion that the gun had been loaded with ball. The poor woman was taken to the infirmary. Mr. M'Cree was at once sought after by the police, but could not be found until yesterday morning, when he was apprehended.

   DEATH OF A CENTENARIAN.—Died, at Inghertercuagh, near Waterville, in this county, Francis Rowan, aged 103. It is a well-ascertained fact that he was born in April 1760. He lived in the reigns of five Sovereigns, having been born in the last year of the reign of George II. He was a pensioner from the Revenue for over 60 years ; and the Commissioners of Customs frequently required testimonials to his being still alive. He outlived his wife only a few months, and she was reported to have been even older than he was.—Kerry Post.

(Before Messrs. JOHN LEAHY, Q.C., Chairman ; Thomas Gallwey,
D. J. Cruice, R.M., H. A. Herbert, jun.)
   A MAN named Murphy was fined 10s., and 1s. compensation, at the suit of Mr. F. H. Downing, for cutting a quantity of young trees and twigs on the plaintiff's grounds.
   An English tourist named Robert Jessop, sojourning at the Victoria Hotel, was summoned by Maurice Aherne, a child about 8 years old, with having assaulted him in Killarney on Saturday evening.
   Mr. J. R. Wilson appeard for the plaintiff, and Mr. A. Morphy for the defendant.
   The plaintiff having answered the questions put to him relative to the nature of an oath, said he remembered Saturday evening last ; saw a gentleman standing opposite the Kenmare Arms Hotel, with a pair of ponies and cart (witness identified him in court) ; he had a long whip in his hand with which he struck witness under the jaw ; witness was standing alone, and away from the other boys who collected around the ponies and cart ; the defendant raised his whip and told the witness to go out of the way ; when in the act of walking behind the defendant struck him with the whip ; there were some other boys making noise near the ponies ; saw a carriage like the defendant's before.
   Mr. Morphy said the defence was this :—Mr. Jessop, who had come on a visit, had a carriage and a pair of ponies, which he was in the habit of leaving at the Kenmare Arms hotel, as there was no accomodation for them at the Victoria. At the time the occurrence took place, there were from 15 to 20 boys assembled near the carriage—their attention being attracted by the unusual size of the ponies—they commenced shouting, which caused the ponies to get restive. Mr. Jessop, who had been in the cart at the time, jumped off, and got alarmed for fear the children would be trampled by the ponies ; seeing that they were in danger of being trampled he made a general slash with the whip to drive them away. Having afterwards learned that the defendant had been struck with the whip, Mr. Jessop was exceedingly distressed that he should be hurt, and through him (Mr. Morphy) expressed his regret for it.
   James Frisby, the defendant's groom, was sworn and deposed to having been in the carriage with his master on Saturday evening ; there were about 20 children opposite the hotel after they drove up, who commenced shouting ; the leader became restive ; Mr. Jessop and witness jumped off, but the latter did not see the plaintiff there at all ; witness considered that the ponies would have severely hurt some of the children that were there, had not the defendant threatened them with the whip.
   Mr. Daniel Keleher, proprietor of the Kenmare Arms hotel, gave similar evidence ; he would not undertake to swear that he saw the little boy (plaintiff) shouting.
   Mr. Wilson said the magistrates had jurisdiction of inflicting a fine as high as £20, and such compensation as they thought necessary for the injury inflicted on the complainant.
   Mr. Gallwey to complainant—Was it the whip that gave you that cut under the jaw?—It was, sir.
   The Chairman said that this was a case that ought not to be brought into court at all.
   Mr. Morphy—Mr. Jessop got an attorney's letter this morning asking him to name a solicitor to receive a writ.
   Mr. Wilson—If we knew his address we would serve him with an action.
   The Chairman said the case was one which they regretted the gentleman allowed to come into court. The fact of the defendant being threatened with an attorney's letter was no reason that he should not offer some compensation to the little boy. A gentleman brings into Killarney a kind of carriage called a “trap” and every child is of course anxious to see it as they are not in the habit of seeing them in Killarney, and the gentleman had no right to flourish the whip in the manner he did. It was contrary to all law—contrary to right and honour. If parties did not get satisfaction people would be made to believe that there was one law for the rich and another for the poor. If this gentleman had struck that little child in the eyes he would have lost the use of them. Fortunately, he was not injured. However, they should fine this gentleman for the blow of the whip the nominal sum of 5s. and £1 costs, as compensation for the injury. —Correspondent.

   On Tuesday morning and inquiry was held at the Laurel Tree Tavern, Brick-lane, Whitechapel, before Mr. Humphreys, the coroner for Middlesex, respecting the death of Anna Hyams, a Jewess, aged forty-eight years, who committed suicide on Sunday last under the following circumstances:—
   Solomon Hyams said he lived at 31, Pelham-street, and is a basket salesman. Deceased was his wife. On Saturday last, about a quarter to four, she left him and did not say where she was going. He returned about ten minutes to six, and not finding her he made inquiries, but unsuccessfully, till half-past ten, when he returned home. When she left she was not sober. She was given to habits of intemperance, and was drunk two or three days previously. On his return he found his room-door fastened, but remained on the door- step until twelve o'clock, when he again tried the door, and finding it open he went into his room, and found the deceased hanging to the foot of the bed.
   In answer to the Coroner, the witness said there was a back entrance to the room, and he had frequently returned home and found his wife out when both doors were locked. The deceased attempted to destroy herself by hanging eleven years ago, when a man named Jackson cut her down. Two of her family have also destroyed themselves a brother and sister. On the morning on which she committed suicide she told a friend that her husband must not sell certain clothes, as she had bought them for him to follow her to her grave, and on the previous Friday she told him she had bought twopennyworth of arsenic to destroy herself.
   Wm. Thomas, 141 H¹, said on Saturday morning, the 20th, about half-past twelve, he was called to the house of the deceased, and saw her hanging by a handkerchief to the bedpost. He cut her down, but she was quite dead. The husband was half intoxicated at the time.
   Mr. Profit Dukes, surgeon, 182, Brick-lane, gave evidence as to the deceased having died by strangulation.
   The jury, after a long deliberation, returned a verdict that the deceased destroyed herself while in a state of temporary insanity.

   CHARGE OF MURDER AGAINST A POLICEMAN.—The Manchester Guardian gives a full report of the case of Luke Charles, the policeman who is accused of murdering his wife, and which was resumed on Monday, and resulted in his committal for trial at Bury. The body found in the canal at Pendlebury in February last has been identified as the prisoner's wife, who was a farmer's daughter from the neighbourhood of Celbridge, named Dunne, and evidence was given to show that after the woman's disappearance Charles was in the habit of telling plausible stories in reply to the inquiries of her friends and others as to what had become of her. It would also appear that the prisoner, during his wife's lifetime, had proposed marriage to a young woman named Ford, of Emo, in the Queen's County ; that his offer had been accepted, and that he was only prevented from committing the offence of bigamy by the refusal of the Rev. Father O'Connell, parish priest of Portarlington, to perform the ceremony of marriage until he had satisfactory evidence that the prisoner was what he represented himself to be—an unmarried man.

   FATAL CRINOLINE ACCIDENT.—Mr. W. Carter held an inquest at St. Thomas's Hospital, on Monday night, on the body of Elizabeth Halliday, aged sixteen, who was a servant in the employ of a gentleman name Martins, in Camberwell-green. A few days since, while the deceased was lighting the kitchen fire, a large crinoline which she wore became ignited. The consequence was that she was frightfully burned on the neck, chest, and legs, and died upon removal to the hospital. The coroner, in summing up the facts of the case, remarked upon the absurdity and danger of servant girls wearing crinoline. The jury, who concurred in his observations, returned a verdict of “Accidental death.”

   The medical profession are about to pay a well merited and highly-deserved compliment to Dr. Mackesy, of Waterford. The profession paid a high compliment to Dr. Mackesy when it elected him President of the Royal College of Surgeons, a distinction which had previously been soley confined to those resident in the metropolis. He was the first country practitioner elected to this high poisition, its dignity being fully maintained by him ; and it will descend with a higher lustre to his successor, as the profession mean to show their appreciation of his services.—Waterford News.

   Queen Christina of Spain has just experienced another heavy bereavement. One of her sons, Don Garcia, has just died at Pau, in his 17th year.

   At the Second Criminal Court, London, on Tuesday, David Flynn, thirty, labourer ; Michael Cassidy, fifty-one, labourer, and William Mills, thirty-one, labourer, were indicted for unlawfully assaulting George Smith, a constable of the Metropolitan Police Force, in the execution of his duty.
   The prosecution in this case was instituted by the Treasury, and was conducted by Mr. Clark ; Mr. Ripton appeared for the defence.
   The facts lay in a very narrow compass. The occurrence took place in the High-street, Woolwich, on the night of Monday, the 24th of August. The constable, Smith, was there on duty, and saw a number of prostitutes making a disturbance. He proceeded to quell it, whereupon the prisoner Mills, who was standing at his door—the house he kept being a brothel—interfered, and said that the constable had no business to interfere with the women. The constable was going away, when Mills came behind him and struck him with his fist. Then the prisoner Flynn came up and also struck the constable. Flynn was in a very excited state and called for a poker. His wife gave him a broom-handle, with which he dealt the constable a blow, and knocked him down. Flynn then struck the constable several times, and gave him some severe kicks in the head. Cassidy about this time appeared upon the scene in his shirt and trousers, and inflicted some severe blows on the constable's side. Cassidy was subsequently pursued into Flynn's house, where he was apprehended, and about the same time the other two prisoners were taken into custody. The constable was so seriously maltreated among them that he was even up to the present time suffering seriously from the effects of the blows.
   At the close of the case for the prosecution, which was sustained by the evidence of the constable, and of two women of loose character from Woolwich, who witnessed the occurrence, Mr. Ribton, before proceeding with his address to the jury, informed the court that he had witnesses to prove that Flynn was standing at his own door when the constable in an offensive manner told him to move on.The Common Sergeant intimated that, even if this were so, it would be no justification for a man to strike the policeman, much less to kick him when he was on the ground.
   The Sessions for the revision of the Registry for the County of the City of Cork commenced in the County Courthouse yesterday before Mr. D. R. KANE, Q.C., Revising Barrister.
   Messrs. R. Exham, T. Jermyn, solicitors, and Mr. Crofts appeared for the Conservatives ; Mr. J. V. Blake, Solicitor, and Messrs. Collins, Booth, and Sheehan for the Liberals.
   The Rated Occupiers' List was proceeded with.
   Horatio Adamson, 12 St. Patrick's-street, was struck out, not being on the rate-book. Daniel Ahern, 12 Dominick-street, was objected to by the Conservatives on the ground that he was not a sufficient time in occupation. The Rate Collector for the district deposed that he was, and he was admitted.
   James Ahern, 57 Corn Market-street, was struck out, having left ; and Eugene Ahern, Knocknahohilly Lane and John Ahern, 64 Dominick-street, were also put off, being dead. George Akehurst, 35 St. Patrick's-quay, was objected to by the Liberals, but was admitted. James Alexander, Crotamore, and Benjamin Allen, 1 Panorama Terrace, were struck out, having left. Walter Atkins, 54 Shandon-street, was objected to by the Conservatives, and struck out, not being a sufficient time in occupation.—
   Liberals admitted to Rated Occupiers' List, 35 ; Conservatives admitted in same list, 30. 2 cases stand for evidence in Letter A.—Adjourned.

THE Registry for the Borough of Kinsale commenced at half-past 11 yesterday.
   Messrs. C. P. Wallis, and J. C. Blake appeared on the part of Mr, Fitzgibbon ; Mr. J. W. Bourke, instructed by Mr. Gilman, on the part of Sir Geo. Colthurst.
   Mr. H. E. O'Donnell also attended as a ratepayer.
   His Worship stated that he would dispose of the Town Clerks objections before going into those served by the opposing parties.
   John Ahern, of Cork, for a house situate in the Main-st., was struck out as being out of occupation.
   Wm. Charleston, Fisher-street, was struck off on the like ground.
   Mr. Wallis—The house is in occupation of a man named Corcoran, your worship, for whom we have served a claim.
   John Coleman, of Market-street, was objected to on the ground of not being in possession of the rated premises.
   Mr. Wallis—He is in possession of another house of equal value, and we have served a notice of claim.
   Mr. Bourke contended that the notice of claim was a bad one, as it did not state that he claimed in succession.
   Mr. Wallis and Mr. Blake urged on the court that the claim need not state so, but that it was a matter of proof.
   His worship did not think the notice sufficient, but held over the case for decision.
   Jeremiah Coveney, of Fisher-street, was objected to by Mr. Bourke on the ground that a shop, part of the rated premises, was let to a tenant named Ellen Howe.
   It appearing from the evidence that such was the fact he was struck off.
   Messrs. Dawson and Southwick were objected to by Mr. Wallis on the ground that they were only trustees of the rated premises.
   Mr. Betson, the Town Clerk, stated that Mr. Dawson was on the list for his own already, and that Mr. Southwick lived in Cork—that they were only trustees of a Mrs. Williams.
   Mr. Bourke endeavoured to sustain Mr. Southwick's claim, the names were struck off.
   Michael Galway, Compass Hill, was objected to by Mr. Wallis, who stated that he wished to examine Mr. Galway himself, as he understood that his mother was the tenant and not himself.
   Mr. Bourke said that no summons had been served on Mr. Galwey [sic], and that he objected to Mr. Wallis's examining him.
   Mr. Wallis—I find him in Court——
   His Worship stated he would not compel a man to come forward unless a summons were served on him,
   The name was accordingly retained.
   John Daly, Friar street, was objected to by Mr. Bourke, for having let a stable.
   It appearing from the evidence elicited by Messrs. Wallis and Blake that the stable was rated separately, the name was retained.
   William Hartello was struck off, being dead.
   Richard Walton Knolles was objected to by Mr. Wallis as his mother-in-law was the owner of the house.
   Mr. Bourke—Who is rated in the book, Mr. Hosford?
   Mr. Hosford—Mr. Knolles, sir.
   Court—And does he reside there?
   Mr. Hosford—He does, your worship.
   Court—I'll leave him on then.
   Daniel Mahony, of The Glen, and Daniel Shea, Barrack- street, were struck off, as having left the premises.
   William Spillane, South Watersland, was objected to as not being on the printed list.
   Court—Was he on the list supplied to you, Mr. Betson, by the Clerk of the Union?
   Mr. Betson—He was not, sir.
   Court—How, then, did you come to put him on. You seem to me not to want a revising barrister at all, for you take it upon yourself to do the business.
   Mr. Betson—The Clerk of the Union came to me after sending me his list, your Worship, and asked me to put the name on in writing.
   Court—Is that the case?
   Mr. Hosford—It is, your Worship. I omitted the name in mistake.
   The name was retained.
   Wm. O'Beirne Adams, of Brass Cock Hill, was objected to by Mr. Blake, on the ground that the house belonged to his mother. The objection was disallowed.
   Robert Browne, of Main-street, was objected to by Mr. Bourke, as having parted with the possession of part of the rated premises.
   Mr. Browne was examined by Mr. Blake, and denied having done so.
   The name was retained.
   Edward Barry, Fisher-street, was opposed by Mr. Bourke, on similar grounds, and being out of possession of the premises.
   Edward Barry was then examined, and proved that he left his house for about two months.
   Mr. Blake—When he went to the water, your Worship (laughter).
   Mr. Bourke—Have you a tenant named Geary, Mr. Barry?
   Witness—He has no power whatsoever over the place, sir ; he has no separate key, but the key of his bedroom (laughter).
   Mr. Wallis—You see, your Worship, how well up to the point they are.
   The name was retained.
   Richard Lewis objected to by Mr. Wallis—name retained.
   Valentine Roche, Brown's Mills, was objected to by Mr. Bourke, as not being in possession of the premises.
   Mrs. Supple examined by Mr. Bourke, proved that she was a tenant to the premises at £8 a-year.
   Court—Well, Mr. Wallis, what do you say to this?
   Mr. Wallis—I say he never parted with the possession.
   Mr. Wallis, to witness—Did he ever give you possession, Mrs. Supple?
   Witness—He did not, sir.
   Court—Don't you reside in the house, and are you not to pay rent for it? What further possession do you want?
   Mr. Wallis—Can't he go into the house at any time he likes?
   Witness—He can, sir.
   To Mr. Bourke—I have the head landlady's receipt for the head rent.
   Court—You are one of the most accomodating tenants I ever saw, Mrs. Supple. I must, however, disallow Mr. Roche.
   Edward Wade, of Main-street, was objected to by Mr. Bourke as having let a stable, part of the rated premises to a man named Kelly.
   Mr. Bourke examined a Mr. O'Brien to prove that he served the summons on Kelly to attend.
   Kelly was then called on the subpoena but did not appear.
   Mr. O'Brien was examined, and proved that Kelly was tenant to the stable.
   Mr. Wallis—How do you know that?
   Witness—He told me so himself.
   Mr. Wallis—I don't care what he told you—that's not evidence. Surely your Worship, you will not put it on us to prove a case on such evidence as that.
   Court, to witness—Did you see kelly yourself in possession of the stable?
   Witness—I did, your Worship.
   Court—And is that the stable of Mr. Wade?
   Witness—It is at the back of his house, sir.
   Court—That and the absence of your friend, Mr. Kelly, coerces you, Mr. Wallis. You can examine Mr. Wade himself you know.
   Mr. Wallis—I don't think your Worship ought put me to it.
   Mr. Blake—Surely any man may walk into a stable and say “I'm tenant to it” if he wishes to oust a person from the franchise, sir.
   Court—I have sworn testimony here, Mr. Blake, and a court of justice cannot put such a violent presumption against it.
   Mr. Wade was then examined and stated that Kelly was tenant to the stable, but that he, himself, had the key to the yard and control over it.
   Court—I am obliged to strike you out, Mr. Wade, and I am sorry for it. You gave your testimony as I expected you would.
   Garrett Ahern claimed to be put on the list for a house in the Glen.
   Mr. Wallis supported the claim.
   Mr. Bourke opposed on the ground of the tenant to the premises being a Mrs. Honora Sullivan. On enquiry this turned out to be the fact, and the claim was disallowed.
   John Donovan of Castlepark, claimed to be put on as tenant to the Quay and half the Ferry at the World's End.
   Mr. Wallis opposed the claim.
   Court—Is this man on the rate?
   Mr. Bourke—He is, your Worship.
   Court—Then why in the world did not the Clerk of the Union return his name?
   Mr. Hosford—I did not think, your Worship, he was entitled to be on.
   Court—You and the Town Clerk seem to make the decisions between you. What right have you to take it on yourself to say whether he had a right or not.
   Mr. Hosford—One of your predecessors struck him off sir——
   Court—What is your objection, Mr. Wallis?
   Mr. Wallis—We withdraw it, sir.
   The claim was accordingly allowed.
   George Meade Forde claimed for a house, offices and store, Cork-street.
   Mr. Wallis objected that the house was not in the claimant's possession, but was let to tenants.
   Claimant—But I hold the stores in my own possession, sir.
   Mr. Wallis—A store! The coal hole, your worships (great laughter).
   The store turned out, on enquiry, to be a small coal cellar, and the claim was rejected.
   Cornelius Kelly claimed as tenant of the Tolls and Market
   Mr. Bourke supported the claim, which was allowed.
   Peter Lee and Hugh M'Clelland were disallowed, on account of the rates of the premises being unpaid.
   Adam Perry, of Long-quay, was disallowed, his mother being the party rated.
   This closed the list.
   The revised list for the borough of Kinsale consists now of 145 voters, eight of whom are freemen.
   Sir George Colthurst's agents claim the benefit of the results of the revision, the objections served by their opponents having been all disallowed.

   Francis Leahy, Esq., and lady ; Nicholas Murphy, Esq., and lady, accompanied by the Hon. Mrs. Wm. Stourton, Miss Mary Stourton, and suites have left the Gresham Hotel for Cork.
