   KINSALE A PORT OF CALL.—KINSALE, TUESDAY EVENING.—Great excitement has been produced her by the intelligence that the company of the Inman line have some intention of making Kinsale a port of call for their steamers, instead of Queenstown ; but, although Kinsale harbour is evidently a statio bene fide carinis, yet this is not among the most probable events of the future, inasmuch as I conceive the company must in that case construct a suitable quay for their own accommodation, as quays are possessed by a few persons, their length in each case corresponding to and co-incident with the breadth of the rere of their premises ; and as to a public quay there is scarcely any.—From a Correspondent of the Irish Times.
   BANKRUPTS.—Wm. Murray, of 64, Upper Dorset-street, in the county of the city of Dublin, provision dealer, to surrender on Friday, the 10th of June. John M'Carthy, of Tralee, in the county of Kerry, leather cutter, to surrender on Friday, the 10th of June, and on Friday, the 24th of June. Agnes Vodrey, of Moore-street, in the city of Dublin, widow, dealer in china and glass, to surrender on Friday, the 10th of June, and on Friday, the 24th of June. Wm. Bell Cordner, of North Earl-street, in the city of Dublin, grocer, to surrender on Friday, the 10th of June, and on Friday, the 24th of June.

   The death of General Stuart during the engagement with Sheridan is a severe loss to the Confederates. His successes with his famous cavalry have been of no small service to the cause which he adopted. General Stuart is supposed to be no other than the Lord Ernest Vane Tempest.—Shipping Gazette.
   THE KILKENNY CATS.—I have often wondered why none of your correspondents who are natives of or residents in Kilkenny have given you the real version of the tale of the Kilkenny cats. I have seen the subject frequently noticed in the columns of Notes and Queries, but I have never seen the following accurate version of the occurrence, which led to the generally-received and erroneous story of the Kilkenny cats, that story has been so long current that it has become a proverb—“as quarrelsome as Kilkenny cats”—two of the cats in which city are asserted to have fought so long and so furiously that naught was found of them but two tails! This is manifestly an Irish exaggeration ; and when your readers shall have learned the true anecdote connected with the two cats they will understand why only two tales were found, the unfortunate owners having fled in terror from the scene of their mutilation. I am happy in being able to state that neither Ireland nor Kilkenny is at all disgraced by the occurrence, which did tale place in Kilkenny, but which might have occurred in any other place in the known world. During the rebellion which occurred in Ireland in 1798 (or may be in 1803) Kilkenny was garrisoned by a regiment of Hessian soldiers, whose custom it was to tie together in one of their barrack-rooms two cats by their respective tails, and then to throw them face to face across a line generally used for drying clothes. The cats naturally became infuriated, and scratched each other in the abdomen until death ensued to one or both of them, and terminated their sufferings. The officers of the corps were ultimately made acquainted with these barbarous acts of cruelty, and they resolved to put an end to them, and to punish the offenders. In order to effect this purpose an officer was ordered to inspect each barrack-room daily, and to report to the commanding officer in what state he found the room. The cruel soldiers, determined not to lose the daily torture of the wretched cats, generally employed one of their comrades to watch the approach of the officer, in order that the cats might be liberated and take refuge in flight before the visit of the officer to the scene of their torture. On one occasion the “look-out man” neglected his duty, and the officer of the day was heard ascending the barrack-stairs while the cats were undergoing their customary torture. One of the troopers immediately seized a sword from the arm-rack, and with a single blow divided the tails of the two cats. The cats, of course, escaped through the open windows of the room, which was entered almost immediately afterwards by the officer, who inquired what was the cause of the two bleeding cats; tails being suspended on the clothes line, and was told in reply that “two cats had been fighting in the room ; that it was found impossible to separate them ; and that they fought so desperately that they had devoured each other up, with the exception of their two tails ;” which may have satisfied Captain Schummelkettle, but would not have deluded any person but a beery Prussian.—Notes and Queries.
   INSOLVENT DEBTOR.—Michael Keily, in the county of Cork, shopkeeper and goods carrier.
   BURNT TO DEATH.—On Monday a fatal accident occurred to Mrs. Harriet Moore, residing in Percival-street, Kennington-lane, London. She was nursing an infant five weeks old before the fire, when a spark flew from between the bars, and, as she endeavoured to put it out with her foot, set fire to her dress. Throwing down the child, she ran screaming for help, first into another room, and then into the street. The poor woman was so dreadfully burned that she died two hours afterwards in great agony.

A conversation took place with reference to the boundaries between the Cork and Bandon Railway grounds and those of the Corn Market. The matter was referred to a committee. After the disposal of some other business, which was of the usual routine nature, the committee adjourned.

Gardiner v. Noblett.
   This was an action to recover the sum of £55 10s., for work and labour done. Plaintiff and defendant are solicitors practicing in Cork. The defendant was trustee under a marriage settlement, in connexion with which the work was alleged to have been done, and he filed various pleas in defence.
   The hearing of the case occupied the court the greater part of the day and resulted in a settlement of the case, on condition that the defendant pay £15 to the plaintiff, that each party pay his own costs, and that further litigation be abandoned.
   Counsel for the plaintiff—Messrs. Walsh, Q.C., and Plunkett. For the defendant—Messrs. Clarke, Q.C., and Jellett.
   MARRIAGE OF LADY CONSTANCE VILLIERS TO THE HON. FREDERICK STANLEY.—On Tuesday morning the marriage of Lady Constance Villiers, eldest daughter of the Earl and Countess of Clarendon, with the Hon. Frederick Stanley, second son of the Earl and Countess of Derby, was solemnised at St. Paul's Church, Knightsbridge. A body of the Grenadier Guards lined the entrance to the church, and long before the appointed hour the sacred edifice was crowded with elegantly-dressed ladies. Shortly before eleven o'clock the Hon. Frederick Stanley left St. James's-square, accompanied by his best man, John Thomas H. Pakingham, M.P. The fair bride, accompanied by her noble parent, followed immediately afterwards, and proceeded to the communion table. Lady Constance was magnificently attired in white silk Brussels lace, and the bridesmaids were attired in white tarlatan, trimmed with blue silk. The service was performed in the most impressive manner by the Rev. and Hon. Robert Liddell, M.A., incumbent, the bride being given away by her noble father. In the afternoon the happy pair left for Grove Park, Watford, en route for the Continent. The Hon. Frederick Stanley have the Grenadier Guards a dinner of roast beef and plum-pudding.
   THE CONSTABULARY.—Amongst the large number of emigrants who daily leave this country for America, we regret to find several of the Constabulary force. This one admirable body of men is rapidly losing some of its best members, who, finding that promotion is often not regulated by conduct and merit, resign their situations, after having served, perhaps, such a number of years as would in many other forces entitle them to a pension. This week, Sub- constables Walker, Molony, and Connelly of the Tralee District leave this country for America, all three having resigned. Sub-constables Walker and Molony have served, respectively, 15 and 14 years and during that time their conduct has always been most satisfactory. We remember a case having some months ago come before the Tralee Bench of Magistrates, in which it appeared that Molony was mainly instrumental in quelling a dangerous riot near Blennerville, in which several lighter-men were engaged. When such internal dissatisfaction as drives these men to resign exists in the Constabulary, we do not wonder at the complaints which have of late been made against it as a body.—Tralee Chronicle.
   MACHINERY ACCIDENT THROUGH CRINOLINE.—An inquest was held on Monday, near Bolton, on the body of Ann Rollinson, a married woman, recently employed at Firwood bleach works. On Friday afternoon last she was engaged in the mangling room, and had occasion to go to a wall where, in a recess, soap is kept for the use of the workpeople, and about a foot from the wall a shaft between three and four inches in diameter, and two feet six inches from the floor, driven by steam power, revolves about fifty times per minute. Her dress was caught upon the shaft, and she was pulled to it, and revolved with the shaft two or three minutes before the machinery could be stopped. She was mortally injured in the spine. No limbs were broken. She died at home in two hours after the occurrence. A witness stated that her dress would not have been caught but for the crinoline pressing it out. The jury returned a verdict of “Accidental death,” adding a request that the shaft should be covered with a casing.
   The total number of effective non-commissioned officers and men serving in the army in Ireland during the present month is 20,962. There are also 4,000 cavalry and artillery horses, including officers' chargers, and 54 field-guns.
   ATTEMPTED SHIPMENT OF HUMAN BONES.—Captain Christie, of the ship Fairy, which has arrived at Hull, from Genoa, laden with bones, reports that the cargo was brought to the vessel from the town in covered vans, and, on examining the bones, he discovered that a very large quantity of them were unquestionably human remains. He informed the authorities of the circumstances, and convinced them of the truth of his statement by showing them bones which positively had portions of human flesh still adhering to them. The merchant on whose account the shipment was taking place had warned the captain not to take any such bones on board if they were offered to him, thus manifesting that like attempts had been made, or were likely to be made. The bones had been bought by the merchant from a dealer who resides some distance up the country. There is every reason to believe that an extensive trade has been carried on in human bones. Doubtless, this discovery will check it. —Manchester Examiner.
   THE BOGUS PROCLAMATION.—The following is the allegedly false proclamation said to have been issued by President Lincoln :—“Executive Mansion, May 17. Fellow-citizens of the United States,—In all seasons of exigencies it becomes a nation carefully to scrutinize its line of conduct, humbly to approach the Throne of Grace, and meekly to implore forgiveness, wisdom, and guidance. For reasons known only to Him it has been decreed that this country should be the scene of unparalleled outrage, and this nation the monumental sufferer of the 19th century. With a heavy heart, but an undiminished confidence in our cause, I approach the performance of a duty rendered imperative by my sense of weakness before the Almighty, and of justice to the people. It is not necessary that I should tell you that the first Virginia campaign under Lieutenant General Grant, in whom I have every confidence, and whose courage and fidelity the people do well to honour, is virtually closed. He has conducted his great enterprise with discreet ability. He has inflicted great loss upon the enemy. He has crippled their strength and defeated their plans. In view, however of the situation in Virginia, the disaster at Red River, the delay at Charleston, and general state of the country, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, by virtue of the power vested in me by the Constitution and the laws, have thought fit to call forth, and hereby do call forth the citizens of the United States between the ages of 18 and 45 to the aggregate number of 400,000, in order to suppress the existing rebellious combinations and to cause the due execution of the laws. And furthermore, in case any State or number of States shall fail to furnish by the 15th of June next their assigned quotas, it is hereby ordered that the same be raised by an immediate and peremptory draught. The details for this object will be communicated to the State authorities through the War Department. I appeal to all loyal citizens to favour, facilitate, and aid this effort to maintain the honour, the integrity, and the existence of our national Union, and the perpetuity of popular Government. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington this 17th day of May, in the year of our Lord 1864, and of the independence of the United States the 88th.—ABRAHAM LINCOLN. By the President, WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.”—American paper.

DINGLE, JUNE 2ND. Owing to an Admiralty order issued lately to all Coast Guard Stations, that any chief boatman in charge of a station, whose age exceeded 60 years, should be superannuated on a pension, according to their terms of service, three vacancies took place yesterday in the district of Dingle, namely—Messrs. John Bunney, from Ferriter's Cove ; John Kingcomb, from Ballydavid ; and Richard Sinnott, from the Brandon Coast Guard Station—all chief boatmen in charge, proper and trustworthy men, and respected in the service. Mr. James Baker, commissioned boatman, is under orders for removal on promotion to a chief boatmanship from Ventry to Valencia ; and with the last fortnight Mr. Robert Howe was removed, also on promotion, to a chief boatmanship, from Dingle to French Point, Milltown Malbay, Co. Clare. A man from Wexford is appointed to fill up the vacancy at the Minard Station in the district of Dingle. All the above vacancies will be filled up through Captain Edmund Heathcote, R.N., commanding H.M.S. Hawke.—Dingle Correspondent.

AT the Recorder's Court on yesterday two men, Thomas M'Namara and Michael Groves, were brought up, charged with having committed an assault on James Barry, a blacksmith, on George's Quay, on the night of Saturday, the 7th May. The assault took place in a public house. The jury acquitted M'Namara, and sentenced Groves to 6 months' imprisonment at hard labour.

THREE men named Timothy M'Auliffe, Timothy Hanlon, and Michael Twoomey, were put forward at the Recorder's Court yesterday, charged with having assaulted Michael Kelleher on the night of the 24th May, and stolen from him the sum of 19s. The jury acquitted the prisoners, who were then discharged.

A MAN named Thomas Bird was convicted of having stolen a purse containing five sovereigns from Charles Cawensky, a Prussian sailor, whom he slept with on Tuesday night. He was sentenced to one month's imprisonment, and the court adjourned.

   Reboul, the famous poet and baker, died yesterday, in the house, in his native town of Nismes, where for many years he sold hot rolls over the counter in the morning, and wrote verses in his parlour in the afternoon. English tourists were wont to ask for Reboul as one of the sights of Nismes, after they had visited the Roman Theatre and the Maison Carree. He was the son of a locksmith, and was born at Nismes in 1796. In 1847, he was elected a member of the Constituent Assembly. Among his works are :— “Poesis” (1836), “Le Dernier Jour” (1840), “Le Martyre de Vivic,” a tragedy, played at the Odeon in 1850, and “Les Traditionnelles” (1857).—Paris Letter.

   MELBOURNE, APRIL 26TH.—Advices from New Zealand announce that two severe engagements occurred at Maungatawahiri and Yarachi. The natives were defeated at the former place, which they abandoned ; while at the latter the English troops suffered a reverse. The English loss in killed and wounded in both engagements amounted to 80. The probability of a close to the campaign is still distant.

   SHANGHAI, APRIL 22ND.—Major Gordon has defeated the rebels at Waisoo, and expected that Nanking and Soochowfoo would surrender shortly.

THE rumour that the Inman Company purpose [sic] withdrawing their ships from Queenstown and taking them to Kinsale, would seem to have some foundation from the fact, that Captain Kennedy, master of the ill-fated City of New York, left Queenstown to-day for Kinsale. The object of his visit to Kinsale is not avowed, but, owing to the late reports that the Inman Company, vexed at his suspension, have determined to change the port of call for their ships from Queenstown to Kinsale, it is supposed to be for the purpose of examining the capabilities of Kinsale harbour. This conjecture is strengthened by the fact that Captain Seymour, agent of the company [visited] the same harbour in his screw steam yacht, this day.

The prisoner was remanded for a week, and bail refused.
   Under this heading the Charleston Mercury, of May 21st, pays the following tribute to the gallantry of a son of John Mitchel. By it, it will be clearly seen that what was lately written of Capt. Mitchel by a correspondent of the New York Tribune was a malicious libel :—
   “Col. Stephen Elliott having been transferred to a more active field of duty, Capt. John C. Mitchel, of the First Regiment South Carolina Artillery (regulars), has been assigned to the command of Fort Sumter. Previous to the war, Captain Mitchel held the position of Chief Engineer of one of the railroads in Alabama. At the first symptoms of hostilities, he promptly resigned his place, with its emoluments, and hastened to Charleston, then the chief centre of danger and interest. He was comissioned by Governor Pickens as a lieutenant in the regular artillery regiment which was in the process of organization at the time. He first distinguished himself during the bombardment of Fort Sumter by our batteries, in which action he commanded the guns of the enfilading battery at Fort Moultrie, which played so efficient a part in the reduction of the last stronghold of the United States in Charelston Harbour.
   During the siege of Battery Wagner, Captain Mitchel was placed in command of the batteries on James Island, which had been constructed to command the enemy's work ; and both then and subsequent to the evacuation of Morris Island he rendered signal service by the spirit and accuracy of the fire with which he constantly annoyed the Yankee working parties. The new commander of Fort Sumter is quite young to have attained so important a position, being still in his 25th year.”

   THE TRALEE RAILWAY STATION.—Tralee is about to lose a very estimable public servant.—Mr. Coonan, our station master, will leave immediatley on promotion to be station master at Cork. For Mr. Coonan, this is such an advance as shows how he has, in a very short time, and in a comparitively backward position, been able not only to manifest that ability which warrants such promotion, but to impress his qualifications on those who are his superiors in the establishment. While resident here, he has been uniformly courteous and obliging, painstaking and accurate, always desirous to facilitate business, and promote the legitimate wish of the public. He leaves us with a universal desire on the part of the public that he may succeed in his more important position at Cork as he has done amongst us, and with the conviction that his assiduity and capacity will justify still further promotion on the staff of the railway. —Tralee Chronicle.

The Cork Examiner, 13 June 1864
(Before Messrs. MARTIN, S. T. W. FRENCH, W. D. SEYMOUR, P. SCOTT, and J. BEAMISH.)
MR. ALLEN applied for an ad interim transfer of a license held by the late Mr. John Prinville, of the Mall, to his son, who was the sole executor of his father's will. The application was granted.
   A summons was brought by John Bowle, articled seaman on board the Norton, against Joseph Hall, master, for £11 9s. 2d.
   Mr. Allen said that he appeared for the defendant, whom Bowle had previously summoned for £10. The magistrates then enquired into the accounts, and gave a decree for £11 9s. 2d., against which he (Mr. Allen) appealed to Quarter Sessions. The appeal was still pending, but in the meantime Bowle issued a fresh summons for £11 9s. 2d. He (Mr. Allen) considered that, pending the appeal, the case should not be heard.
   Mr. Beamish said that the Bench had no power to give a decree for more than what was mentioned in the summons. No doubt the magistrates thought that Bowle was entitled to £11 9s. 2d., but they could not have given a decree for more than the £10 which he summoned Hall for.
   Mr. O'Bryen, who appeared for the plaintiff, said that Mr. Allen had no power to appeal in the case. His (Mr. O'Bryen's) client was now ready to accept £10, though he was entitled to £11 9s. 2d.
   Mr. Allen declined to accept the offer.
   The magistrates decided they had no jurisdiction in the case before them, and they therefore dismissed it.
   Thomas Collins, ship-wright, Passage, was charged by Sub-Constable Roche with having been drunk ; by Sub-Constable Moore, with having attempted to trip him, and by Acting-Constable Duffy with having kicked him after he had been taken into custody.
   He was sentenced to a week's imprisonment, with the option of paying a fine.
   The prisoner declared that he had only taken two glasses of ale during the day ; he denied having tripped Moore, and stated that he was speaking to a friend when Moore passed him, and he merely put out his foot accidentally.
   A fine of 10s. was imposed on Mrs. Anne Wilson, publican, for selling drink after the hours allowed by law.
   A young lad named John Doe, who stated he was a printer on the Morning Chronicle, was charged with travelling on the Queenstown Direct Railway without a ticket.
   Mr. Buckley, station master, said that the charge would not have been brought, but that frequent offences of the kind had been committed of late.
   The Bench sentenced the prisoner to fourteen days' imprisonment, or to pay 10s. and costs.
   The Bridewell Keeper informed the Bench that the prisoner's intellect was impaired, a fact which was evident from his demeanour in court.
   Mr. French—Well, let him go to gaol and find it out.
   The poisoner [sic] was then removed.
   A boy belonging to the Italian schooner Austrian was charged by John Daly, out-door Customs' officer, with smuggling over a pound weight of cigars.
   A penalty of 15s. 5d. was imposed.

   The Irish Militia regiments have nearly all assembled for training, and we are glad to find that, as a general rule, the reports are satisfactory, both of the condition and strength of the various corps. The muster in some instances has been remarkably good. The Kerry was nearly 1,000 strong, and although in not a few counties emigration has considerably reduced the numbers, we are assured that, taken altogether, the attendance has been more numerous that [sic] had been anticipated.—Army and Navy Gazette.
