The Cork Examiner, 1 June 1865
A PRIVATE inquiry was held in the Magistrates' Room at the Police-office to-day, before Mr. J. L. Cronin, R. M., and Mr. Ryan, R. M., into the circumstances attending the death of Mr. Michael Saunders, son of Mr. Saunders, Nurseryman, of this city. Mr. Saunders, who was about 24 years of age, was our riding on Sunday, the 14th of last month. Towards dinner time his horse returned riderless to the residence of his father, and on search being made the unfortunate young gentleman was found lying with his skull fractured, almost lifeless, on the road near the village of Carrigaline, he was at once carried to his house but never spoke again, and shortly after arriving at home he died. It was at first supposed that Mr. Saunders had fallen from his horse, but it was shortly afterwards rumoured that some young men from the village of Carrigaline had followed him along the road and knocked him off the horse with stones. These rumours having reached the police, two young men named Malony and Callaghan, labourers of the Messrs. Savage, were arrested on suspicion. An inquiry was, as stated above, held on to-day, and after the examination of some witnesses the court decided that there was no evidence whatever to connect either of the accused with Mr. Saunders' death. They were accordingly discharged from custody. Mr. Blake, solicitor, appeared for the defence.

   DEATH OF A JOCKEY FROM SWEATING.—An inquest was held on Monday last at Lambourne, before the Berkshire Coroner (W. D. Wasborough, Esq.), on the body of Thomas Atwood, aged 16 years, a stable lad, in the employ of Mr. Archer, a trainer. It appears from the evidence of the head lad that deceased had started on Saturday, wrapped in flannels and a great coat, for sweat, as he was to ride at Harpenden this week, and wanted to pull off 5lbs. weight ; he walked about two miles, and then fell down, when some man coming by advised the clothes should be taken off him, or he would die. They then undressed him on the Downs, rubbed him dry, covered him over with all the clothes and wrappers, and went to Ashdown Park for assistance. Mr. Clarke, of Lambourne, stated that he drove to the spot where deceased was lying, and took with him some brandy and some water, but that the jaw of the deceased was almost fixed and his eyes closed, and that he was obliged to force open his mouth to administer the stimulant. Deceased was then put to bed and attended by Mr. Kennard and his son, but he never rallied, and died the same night about ten o'clock. The cause of death, as stated by Mr. Kennard, was effusion on the brain produced by the heat of the weather and over-exertion.

   CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.—An investigation was held on Tuesday at the Blanchardstown Petty Sessions into a charge preferred against Mr. Patrick Kennedy, of Clonsilla, at the instance of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, for having cut off the horns of a number of cattle, his property, thereby causing the animals extreme pain. The Court-house was filled by a crowd of people, who watched the proceedings with interest. Constable Talbot, of the constabulary, deposed that on the 11th of May he visited the defendant's lands at Clonsilla, and he there saw 21 head of cattle lying on the ground with their horns cut off close to the skull. There were holes in the head where the roots of the horns had been taken out, and the cattle appeared to be suffering extreme pain. Although he had been in the battles of Alma and Inkermann he never saw anything that affected him so much. Professor Ferguson, veterinary surgeon, deposed that he also had seen the cattle, which were suffering greatly in consequence of the bungling manner in which the operations had been performed. As reasons for depriving the animals of their horns he stated that cattle without horns were regarded more favourably in the English markets, that the loss of the horns occasioned a less development of the muscles and the coarse parts of the neck, and increased the nutriment. He said he could have performed the operation without causing any pain. Two witnesses summoned to prove the ownership of the cattle declined to give informations, as it might tend to criminate themselves. An adjournment was asked for and refused, and after some discussion the case was dismissed, the ownership not having been proved ; but the Court intimated that further evidence might be procured in several similar cases that were pending.

   MELANCHOLY CASE OF DROWNING.—It is our sad duty to record a melancholy case of drowning that occurred yesterday at Kingsdown [sic]. It appears that a young gentleman, a student at Trinity College, residing at 100, Lower Gardiner-street, and named William Denny Birch, aged about 22 years, proceeded at one o'clock to the Salthill baths to have a swim. He was accompanied by Dr. Purdon, of 23, Bachelor's-walk, and another gentleman named Wright. He stripped and went into the water, for the second time at these baths since the season commenced. He swam a considerable distance alongside the West Pier, and his two companions, who were partially dressed after bathing, ran along the top of the pier, calling him back, as he had gone far enough, but the deceased must not have heard them. On his return, having been upwards of an hour in the water, the attendants at the baths observed the young gentleman getting weak, and struggling with the tide. They at once shouted for assistance, a call which was heroically responded to by a young officer of the merchant service named Goddard, of 8, De Vesci-terrace, who was at the baths at the time. He immediately stripped, as also did Dr. Purdon, and both gentlemen swam to the assistance of the ill-fated young man, and grasped him before he sunk. These two gentlemen kept the poor fellow floating, and brought him to the ramparts, the nearest landing place. Here they endeavoured to shake the water out of his body, but did not succeed. The body being warm, he was carried in all haste to a house close by belonging to a man named Joseph Stewart, where the poor fellow was put to a warm fire, and rolled in blankets and rubbed. Doctor George Kavanagh was sent for, but his and Dr. Purdon's arduous efforts to restore animation were without effect—the poor young gentleman rapidly sunk and expired. From papers which were found in his pockets it appears that the parents and sister of the deceased are residing in the South of France. The body awaits an inquest.

(From the Times.)
   Here is a song that will be sung in Old Virginia, but very cautiously:—
      Yankee Doodle had a mind
         To whip the Southern traitors,
      Because they didn't choose to live
         On codfish and potatoes,
            Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
               Yankee Doodle dandy,
            And so to keep his courage up
               He took a drink of brandy.
      Yankee Doodle said he found
         By all the census figures,
      That he could starve the rebels out,
         If he could steal their niggers.
            Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
               Yankee Doodle dandy,
            And then he took another drink
               Of gunpowder and brandy.
      Yankee Doodle made a speech ;
         'Twas very full of feeling ;
      I fear, says he, I cannot fight,
         But I am good at stealing.
            Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
               Yankee Doodle dandy,
            Hurrah for Lincoln, he's the boy
               To take a drop of brandy.
      Yankee Doodle drew his sword,
         And practised all the passes ;
      Come, boys, we'll take another drink
         When we get to Manassas.
            Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
               Yankee Doodle dandy,
            They never reached Manassas plain,
               And never got the brandy.
      Yankee Doodle soon found out
         That Bull Run was no trifle ;
      For if the North knew how to steal
         The South knew how to rifle.
            Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
               Yankee Doodle dandy,
            'Tis very clear I knew too much
               Of that infernal brandy.
      Yankee Doodle wheeled about,
         And scampered off at full run,
      And such a race was never seen
         As that he made at Bull Run.
            Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
               Yankee Doodle dandy,
            I haven't time to stop just now
               To take a drop of brandy.
      Yankee Doodle, oh ! for shame,
         You'r always intermeddling ;
      Let guns alone, they're dangerous things,
         You'd better stick to peddling.
            Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
               Yankee Doodle dandy,
            When next I go to Bull Run,
               I'll throw away the brandy.
      Yankee Doodle, you had ought
         to be a little smarter ;
      Instead of catching wooly heads,
         I vow You've caught a tartar.
            Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
               Yankee Doodle dandy,
            Go to hum, you've had enough
               of rebels and of brandy.

(Before Messrs. A. M'OSTRICH, LAMBKIN, and CRONIN, R.M.)
MR. C. AHEARNE was summoned by Constable M'Ilvine for having his public house open at a quarter to twelve o'clock on the night of the 24th of May for the sale of drink. A witness for the defence was sworn and stated that the persons in the house were after coming from the races, where they had a tent, and were on their way home to Coachford when they called in for a drink. The magistrates believing that the law was not violated dismissed the case.
   Constable Hosford summoned two women named Sarah Barten and Mary Callaghan for being the owners of a house of ill-fame in Barrack Lane. The same Constable summoned a man named Meade for a similar offence. The bench decided upon sending the two cases for trial before the Recorder.
   A man named Galvin was charged by a policeman named Clifford with attempting to rescue a prisoner from his custody. The defendant denied the charge but the bench did not believe him and sentenced him to a weeks' imprisonment. The Court soon after adjourned.
   NEW YORK, MAY 23 (EVENING).—President Johnson has issued a proclamation opening all the United States ports to foreign trade after the 1st July next, except the ports of Texas. The United States henceforth disavow belligerent privileges to persons trading in the United States, in violation of the law, such offenders will be treated as pirates. The trade restrictions on the Mississippi are removed. General Canby has issued an order forbidding the sale of cotton of the rebel Government, secured by subscription to the cotton loan, or any process vesting the title in the rebel government. Five tons of archives of the Confederate Government have been captured in North Carolina. 100,000 bales of cotton and a large amount of spice have been captured at Augusta. It is still reported that Mr. Davis will be tried for treason before a civil court. The additional evidence brought forward at the conspiracy trial is unimportant. The Edinburgh and Moravian have arrived out. The China has reached Halifax.

   At a meeting of the Board on Thursday last, THOMAS SOMERVILLE, Esq., presided. Other guardians present :—Messrs. Henry R. Marmion, Hill, G. Long, Eugene Downing, Daniel M'Carthy Downing, John F. Levis, Henry Newman, Wm. B. Baldwin.
   Mr. Clerke read the following correspondence relative to the case of Mary Hayes :—
Dublin, 26th May, 1865.    
   SIR,—The Commissioners have under consideration the resolution of Guardians of the Skibbereen Union contained in the minutes of their proceeding of the 18th inst., relative to the circumstances attending the removal of Mary Hayes and her two children from the Fulham Union. The Commissioners have also had before them the warrant and usual particulars relating to this case, and they observe that in the warrant it is stated that Mary Hayes was born in the parish of Creagh, the townlands in which remain in the present Skibbereen Union, but the townland of Cregg, in which it is now said that she was born, is in the present Clonakilty Union. The Commissioners would recommend the guardians to apply for a copy of the depositions taken in this case, in accordance with the provisions of section 3 of the Act 24 and 26 Vic., cap. 76, and they can at the same time represent to the Guardians of the Fulham Union what Mary Hayes states as to the circumstances regarding her removal, with a view to elicit some further information on the subject of her allegations. The Commissioners had forwarded the minutes of the 18th instant, to Mr. Horsley, Poor Law Inspector, but when Mr. Horsley attended to the purpose at Skibbereen on the 24th inst., he found that Mary Hayes and her children had quitted the workhouse on the 19th, and were supposed to have gone to Cregg. It appears, however, that she admitted to the guardians that, not only had she been in receipt of parochial relief for two years continuously from the date of her husband's death, but that she had left Fulham Union for five weeks out of the three weeks [sic] immediately preceding the warrant of her removal to Ireland. The Board of Guardians of the Fulham will perhaps be able to furnish some information as to her alleged forcible removal from Brooks Green-Place, without being allowed time to pack up and take with her, her chattels, or to dispose of her furniture, as well as with regard to the other circumstances which she describes. —By order,
B. BANKS.    
   Mr. Clarke [sic]—On receipt of this letter I sent the statement of Mary Hayes to the Fulham Guardians.
   Chairman—You acted perfectly right.
   Mr. Clarke [sic]—And I received this reply:—
Fulham Union, 29th May, 1865.    
   SIR,—Permit me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 26th inst., with copy of statements made by Mary Hayes. I will lay the same before the Guardians at their meeting on Thursday next, when I will communicate further with you upon the subject. In the meanwhile I may state that I am informed she has only been living in Hammersmith about this time two years.—I am, sir, yours truly,
   To Charles Clerke, Esq., Clerk of Union.
   Mr. Clerke—He alludes in that letter to her having broken her residence for the five weeks admitted in her statement.
   Chairman—If they reside one hour out of the union in England they consider it a “break” in the residence, and act accordingly.
   Mr. Levis considered the woman's statement ought to be furnished to the county members [of Parliament] with a request to bring the case before the House of Commons.
   Mr. Clerke—You cannot do that in the absence of the Fulham Guardians' reply.
   Mr. Wilson, who paid his weekly visit to the Board, was asked by Mr. Newman how the flax crop was progressing, to which query his reply was very satisfactory. Mr. Wilson then handed in the following reply to be signed by the chairman :—“Returned 29½ acres of flax, which I have visited since coming to the union, and 44 farmers who have flax sown this year, besides a number of gentlemen and farmers who grew flax last year. The crop in general is looking healthy ; but in a few instances it is showing a delicate appearance, which I can attribute to bad seed and too deep covering after sowing. In many parts of the North I have been informed the farmers have ploughed down their flax, owing to bad Riga seed. It is my opinion that farmers who have a good crop of flax this year, and can produce a fair sample, will be well paid.—JOHN WILSON, Flax Instructor.—Skibbereen Eagle.

   PASSAGE PETTY SESSIONS.—The usual weekly Petty Sessions were held at Passage to-day. The presiding magistrates were—Captain Johnson and Mr. T. Boland. Mr. Daniel Murphy was summoned by Head-Constable Hoare for having his public house opened at six o'clock on last Sunday morning. The case was proved by the men who got drink there, and who were summoned as witnesses for the prosecution. It having been the defendant's first offence he was fined in the mitigated penalty of 10s. and costs. Mr. Timothy Sullivan was also summoned for having his house open at 7 o'clock on the same morning. In this case the two men called to prove that they had got drink, stated that they did not get any drink and only went into the house to buy two red herrings. The case was accordingly dismissed. There was no other case before the court.

   ALLEGED RECRUITING FOR GARIBALDI.—OXFORD, FRIDAY, JUNE 2.—At the City Police Court to-day Mr. Joseph Ploughman [sic] called the attention of the bench to the fact, that a gentleman of military appearance, and who, represented himself to be in the service of Gen. Garibaldi, had been staying at Oxford, and had induced a number of young men to enlist in Garibaldi's service. A lad named George Darling, who had been living with him (Mr. Plowman) for nearly two years, left without any notice whatever on Wednesday last, beyond a few lines saying that he was off for Italy, the military officer having supplied him with the necessary means. He (Mr. Plowman) had this day been informed that no fewer than sixteen lads went off the same day, and that their destination is Venice. The bench thanked Mr. Plowman for his communication, and suggested that he should call the attention of government to it.
AS our readers are already aware, the manufacture of the cable destined, we trust, to reunite the Old and New Worlds, is completed, and the last coil is in course of shipment upon the leviathan of the sea—the Great Eastern. On Saturday a committee of gentlemen proceeded to Valencia to select the point of departure and landing place of the cable on the Irish shore.
   The gentlemen comprising the committee were :—Mr. Cyrus W. Field, of New York, one of the directors of the Atlantic Telegraph Company ; Mr. C. F. Varley, Electrician of the Atlantic and Electric Telegraph Companies ; Mr. W. T. Ansell, Superintendent and Engineer in Ireland of the Electric Telegraph Company ; Mr. B. D. Watlock, Engineer of the Magnetic Telegraph Company, and Mr. Temple, one of the engineers of the Telegraph Construction Company.
   The Knight of Kerry and Captain White of the Coastguard, rendered the party most valuable assistance, and after a very careful survey and examination of the line of coast, the Committee selected Foilhamarrum Bay, under Bray Head, at the extreme western end of Valentia Island, as the point of departure for the cable.
   The press were represented by Mr. C. H. Farrell, special Commissioner of the New York Herald, and Mr. Joseph Becker, artist, attached to the staff of Leslie's Illustrated News, New York.

   WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, MAY 25TH.—The waterproof cloak and shawl worn by Jeff. Davis at the time of his capture, were presented to the War Department to day by Colonel Pritchard, of the Fourth Michigan Cavalry. The cloak was worn as a skirt and shawl as a hood. The Colonel stated that under this female apparel Davis wore a full suit of drab and a pair of cavalry boots. He also transferred to the department the colors of the One Hundred and Fiftieth Pennsylvania regiment found in the baggage of the rebel party. Both Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Clay were very defiant and very sarcastic. The Secretary of War, in the name of the people and the President, returned thanks to Colonel Pritchard for the gallantry and activity exhibited by him in the pursuit of the great criminal of the age, remarking, “That upon the receipt of his report the reward offered for the apprehension of Davis would be distributed to the men who were properly entitled to it, and a medal of honor awarded to each one who participated in the capture.”

   BALLINASLOE, SUNDAY, NINE o'CLOCK, P.M.—The Master, Mr. David Breen and Miss Duane, the school mistress, were arrested about three hours ago for the murder of the infant found in the privy of the workhouse on Wednesday last. It appears that on the night of Thursday, the day the inquest was held, the master revealed to his wife the startling fact that he had carried on an illicit intercourse with Miss Duane for some time, and the result of her becoming pregnant by him. He made a similar confession to the Rev. John Cotton Walker, rector of the parish, observing that his conscience would not let him be at ease. Intimation being given to John M. Hatchell, Esq., R.M., both he and Miss Duane were arrested by Head-Constable Ellis about six o'clock, and brought to the police barracks. Mr. Breen not only admits the criminal intercourse with the wretched woman but that he was aware of her pregnancy ; that in March last she went to Dublin for the purpose of being privately confined, but that, on her return, she wrote him a note, stating she destroyed the child before she went, and told him where she put it, wanting him to have the privy cleared in a few days after, which he declined doing, nor would he think of doing so, only the manure was required for the farm. The wretched woman has, as yet, made no confession of her guilt. I understand a full inquiry will be held to-morrow. The greatest sensation prevailed through every part of the town on hearing of the arrest of the parties.—Freeman.

   REPRESENTATION OF KILKENNY.—Sir John Gray and Mr. O'Donnell addressed the electors of this city to-day. Sir John Gray was most favourably received. He advocated tenant- right, free education, the granting of a charter to the Catholic University, and abolition of the church temporalities. He spoke for two hours and was loudly cheered.—Freeman.

ACCIDENT.—An old woman, named Ellen Ahern, was knocked down by a car while passing over Parliament Bridge on Sunday morning ; she received some severe bruises about the head and face. She was taken to the South Infirmary, where her injuries were attended to.

ON Friday evening last, while a young lad named Reed was digging some sods in a field off the Blackrock-road, he discovered a box in which was concealed the body of a female child, apparently about a fortnight old. Information having been given to the police, the body was removed to an adjoining publichouse, where an inquest was held on Saturday. An open verdict was returned.
   A SHOAL OF SHARKS AT KILKEE.—Within the last week two or three sharks of tremendous size have been observed hovering about close to “Burn's Hole,” in Kilkee ; one of them would measure about twenty-five feet long. Since their appearance a man has been sent from the Coastguard station to caution persons from bathing in this favourite portion of the bay.—Limerick Southern Chronicle.

   BOOTH'S BODY.—The Washington correspondent of the Boston Advertiser writes :—“It will not be very many days before the visitors to the Army Medical Museum in that city will be granted a view of the portion of the spinal vertebrae of the murderer through which passed the avenging bullet. The relic will be esteemed a most valuable one by those skilled in medical science, exhibiting as it does plainly the exact nature of the wound, and demonstrating the intense agony in which Booth must have passed his long hours of lingering death. It is now in process of preparation at the Museum, and not accessible to the public.”
   THE MURDER AT PALMERSTOWN.—Patrick Kilkenny, who was committed a few days ago on a coroner's warrant for the wilful murder of Margaret Farquhar, at Palmerstown, on the 9th inst., is at present at Kilmainham Gaol, where he speaks rather freely of having committed the murder and says that if he were sure that his soul would not go to hell he would be prepared for the consequences. At first he refused to eat and drink, because he would not be supplied with tobacco ; his request was complied with and now he eats heartily. He is watched closely night and day, fears being entertained that he meditates committing suicide, as he more than once asked the priest who attends him whether he would have been damned if he had cut his throat on the night of the murder. The gas is kept burning in his cell all night, and a warder is constantly with him. These precautions, it would appear, are absolutely necessary, as a day or two ago a razor, which was stolen from a warder's quarters, was found in the cell of a convict adjoining Kilkenny's cell, and with whom there had been a sort of acquaintanceship formed since his committal. It is supposed the man had the razor intended to give it to Kilkenny, for the purpose of assisting him in his design of self-destruction. Kilkenny will be tried, it is expected, on to-morrow or Wednesday.

   THE ORGAN NUISANCE.—Guiseppe Marabo, an Italian organ-grinder, was charged at the Westminster Police-office on Wednesday with unlawfully continuing to play after being ordered to remove from opposite the house of a gentleman named Koenig, at the corner of Westbourne-place, Pimlico. The complainant said that the defendant played opposite his door last evening, and refused to go away when told. The complainant said that the state of his health was not good, and the playing was a great annoyance to him. When told to go away the organ-man said “Lady,” and pointed to a parlour window, where Mrs. Sinnett was. She encouraged him to play, although he did not see her do anything. She was fully aware of the annoyance it was to him. Mr. Arnold said that the police would call and tell the lady that if she encouraged an organ man to play in front of Mr. Koenig's house, after he was desired to leave, she would be liable to the same punishment as the organ man. On the next occasion the complainant had necessity to send the man away, he must also send to Mrs. Sinnett and tell her it was an annoyance. If any offence were committed after that by encouragement, he promised to deal with the lady. The defendant said he was encouraged to play by the lady, or he should not have remained. He was discharged on entering into recognizances to come up for judgement on a future day.
