The Leinster, which had just arrived from Holyhead, having landed her mails and passengers, went out to the assistance of the Ulster, and taking on board the mails and some of the passengers of the latter vessel returned into harbour to coal, and subsequently at ten o'clock proceeded to Holyhead. The Ulster was afterward towed into harbour by the steamer Eblana.

Death ensued.

(Before Messrs. A. M'NAMARA, G. CHATTERTON, H. B. OLLIFFE, and J. L. CRONIN, R.M.)
A NUMBER of persons were summoned for having their dogs wandering about without log or muzzle. They were fined 2s. 6d. each.
   A boy named Lane was summoned for bathing in the river near Eglinton-place a few days since.
   Lane said that the Corporation baths were closed, and it was impossible to get a wash anywhere else. He did not go into the water till half-past four o'clock in the evening, and at a time when he thought it was no harm.
   The Bench fined him 1s., with an alternative of a week's imprisonment.
   Two other boys were fined in similar sums for similar offences.
   The other cases before the bench were entirely devoid of interest.

   Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Lincoln, is said to be the son of an English tragedian, whom some of our theatrical readers may, perhaps, recollect. He (the father) is thus described in the American Encyclopedia :—
   “Booth, Junius Brutus, an English tragedian, born in London, May 1, 1796, died on the passage from New Orleans to Cincinnati, December 1852. After fulfilling engagements at Deptford, near London, and other places, and even performing at Brussels, in 1814, he made his debut at Covent-garded [sic] Theatre, in London, as Richard III. This personally resemblance to the crookbacked tyrant conformed exactly to the traditions of the stage, and his personification of the character was in other respects so striking that he competed successfully with Edmund Kean, then just rising into fame. The managers of the Drury-lane induced him to act there in some plays with Kean ; but when, after a few nights, he was again announced at Covent-garden, his appearance was the signal for a serious theatrical riot, which resulted in driving him for a time from the London stage. In 1821 he made his first appearance in the United States, at Petersburg, Virginia, and in New York, at the Park Theatre, in the succeeding year, on both of which occasions he assumed his favourite character of Richard III. From that time until the close of his life he acted repeatedly in every theatre in the United States, and, in spite of certain irregular habits, which sometimes interfered with the performance of his engagements, enjoyed a popularity which a less gifted actor would have forfeited. During the latter part of his life he resided with his family at Baltimore, making occasional professional trips to other cities. He had just returned from a lucrative tour to California when he died. The range of characters which Booth assumed was limited, and was confined almost exclusively to those which he had studied in the beginning of his career. He is most closely identified with that of Richard, in which, after the death of Edmund Kean, he had no rival. Among his other most familiar personations were Iago, Shylock, Hamlet, Sir Giles Overreach, and Sir Edmund Mortimer. In his peculiar sphere—the sudden and nervous expression of concentrated passion—as also in the more quiet and subtle passages of his delineations, he exercised a wonderful sway over his audience, and his appearance upon the stage has been known to awe a crowded and tumultuous house into instant silence. His presence and action, notwithstanding his short stature, were imposing, and his face, originally moulded after the antique type, were capable of wonderful expression under the influence of excitement. Several of his children have inherited a portion of his dramatic talent, and are now prominent actors on the American stage.”
   Wilkes Booth is also said to have been on the stage, and to have been an especial favourite at Mobile. It was probably by means of his familiarity with the arrangements behind the scenes that he contrived to effect his escape from the theatre.

THE price of mild cured 1sts opened on to-day at 130s. export. The first five made this season were obtained by Mr. Forde for George Hewson, Esq., Ennismore, Listowel, and averaged £4 5s. 6d. per firkin.

THE Duke of Devonshire, Lady Louisa Cavendish, Lord Edward Cavendish, and suite, left Lismore Castle on Friday, the 28th inst., en route for Devonshire House, London. His Grace and party left at nine o'clock, a.m., for Fermoy, whence they were to proceed, per rail, to Dublin. Lord and Lady Frederick Cavendish had left the Castle on the preceding Wednesday, whilst the Hon. Agar Ellis and Mr. Lascelles, who had been staying there as visitors, took their departure on the morning before the noble duke and party. His Grace had entertained, at a series of dinner parties, the gentry of the neighbourhood during his visit, and had well sustained the world-wide fame for unbounded hospitality of his illustrious predecessor. It is understood that the Carlisle Tower, which as yet remains in an unfinished state, will be completed.
LORD DONERAILE has this year with his usual liberality, given an abatement of 40 per cent. to his tenants on the manor of Buttevant. He also gives slate and timber gratis for building. This generous act is only in keeping with his lordship's usual liberality to his tenants, not alone in the famine years, but in later years of greater prosperity. His Lordship is considerably thus making good the losses sustained in the former years during which period he made a reduction of at least 50 per cent to his tenants. It is but justice to add that his lordship has been aided in all those kind acts by the representations and suggestions of his good-hearted and humane agent Mr. Henry Longfield, Doneraile.—Mallow Correspondent.

TIMES.—In announcing the death by suicide of Mr. George Prescott, the head of the banking firm, says it was the result of a morbid condition, which had manifested itself for many months past in intense fits of depression. His position in the city was high, alike from the universal regard felt for his personal character and his financial repute. He has left a large fortune, and he had met with no monetary loss either privately or in connexion with the bank. The remaining partners are very rich.

   QUEENSTOWN, WEDNESDAY.—The Liverpool, New York and Philadelphia s.s. Edinburgh, from New York on the 22nd, arrived off the Harbour to-day. She brings 248 passengers and 13,000 dollars in specie. Having landed mails, 45 passengers, and latest telegrams, she proceeded for Liverpool—all well.
   GREENCASTLE, WEDNESDAY.—The Canadian steam ship Moravian, from Portland, on 22nd ult., arrived in Lough Foyle, and having transferred her mails, except those of London and Liverpool, proceeded for Liverpool—all well.

   SOUTHAMPTON, 3RD.—The R. M. S. Oneida with the above mails has arrived here. She brings 117 passengers, £43,952 in specie, 6 packages diamonds, value not stated, and 700 packages of cargo. The British barque Coquimbo had put into Rio. The American ship William Tell put into Pernambuco with her captain murdered and chief mate injured by the crew. The Portuguese squadron was still at Rio. The Brazilian squadron was still at Monte Video and Buenos Ayres, and the land forces concentrated in Monte Video were being marched back to the Rio Grande. War was impending between Brazil and Paraguay. The Brazilian government asked permission of Buenos Ayres to march its army through the Argentine territory, which was peremptorily refused. The Brazilians have decided to postpone their Paraguay campaign until the spring. Sheep farming in Buenos Ayres was thriving and the Sala Deristas was busy. General business was unaltered ; gold drooping. Business in Rio was dull, but the money market was easier. Freights to the channel, 60s.

   NEW YORK, APRIL 22ND, MORNING.—The New York Herald of to-day, in a special edition, states that Johnson has surrendered. Mr. Lincoln's funeral passed off quietly.

   BROTHER JONATHAN ON HIS TRAVELS.—The travel to the Old World has been amazingly increased within the last five or six weeks. Every vessel for England, France, Germany, and the other countries of Europe, is crowded to its fullest capacity. The Cunard steamer Persia, which left port on Wednesday, was unable to accommodate all the applicants for passage, and carried out an unusually large company of American travellers. The Bremen, of the North German Lloyd's company, which is announced to sail on Saturday, will depart with all her accommodations for passengers completely exhausted. Our reporter was informed at the office of the company yesterday that there were applicants enough to fill three vessels of the capacity of the Bremen, and that never before, since the establishment of the line, were the company obliged to refuse passage to the people for want of sufficient accommodations. The same with Dale's splendid line of steamers. Thus it was nearly at all the other steamship offices. Mr. Richards of the Hamburg American Steam Packet Company, has observed a marvellous increase in the number of steerage passengers bound on short trips to their native land. They are three to one as compared to the corresponding season of last year. Among the cabin passengers by this route the per centage [sic] of Americans is also very large. The French line also goes full and is a success. Of course at this season every year the steamers are generally pretty well filled with tourists bound for the fashionable watering places of Europe. But the increase this year is so entirely beyond anything of the kind that has occurred for years, that it can only be explained as due to the inevitable restoration of peace and the consequent sense of security and confidence expressed by all classes of our people. —New York Herald.

For R. DENNY URLIN, Examiner.    
   MICHAEL BOURKE, Solicitor, having the Carriage of Proceedings, 65, Blessington street, Dublin, and Fermoy.
   At a meeting of the Board on Thursday last, Thomas Somerville, Esq., presided.
   During the “admissions” a respectable looking woman, with two children, was brought before the guardians, and, in her statement, disclosed circumstances in connection with her removal from England to this country, strange in the extreme, and truly heartrending.
   On being questioned by the chairman on Thursday last, she made the following statement, which was placed on the minutes :—
   “I have been living in London for the last fourteen years, at No. 19, Broom Green Place, Slater's Buildings, in the parish of Hammersmith, in the Fulham Union ; was married to Patrick Hayes, and had six children, only two of whom are now alive ; received parish out door relief for two years since the death of my husband ; about a week before I was removed the overseer of the workhouse came to me and said I should go to Ireland ; I said I would not as I had no home there, and I had here ; he said I should go as my parish was in Ireland ; I told him the children were born in Hammersmith, and asked him what would I do with them, for that I had no place for them in Ireland. I told him that if he took care of the children that I would not trouble him, as I could do for myself. He said I should take the children with me. He then took me before a magistrate, and I was obliged to swear to my parish. At the time he took me before the magistrate I did not know where I was going. The overseer said I should be sent to Ireland. The magistrate said nothing more than swear me as to my parish. It was against my will I took the book [swore]. I went home after this occurred, and was there about eight or ten days when the overseer came to my house on Monday last. It was about half-past five o'clock in the morning when he called. I was in bed, and so were the children. He told me to “jump up,” and I done so. He then told me to get the children up. I said it was too early ; however, he got them up and he then said that we should go to Ireland, and that there was a cab waiting for us at the end of the lane. I refused, but he said I should go. He went out and brought in five policemen. I was put between two of them, and they dragged me out without my bonnet or shawl, and left my house open. I would not be allowed even to shut the door. I wanted to go back for my clothes and some little money I had to pay the rent, but the overseer would not let me. I was put into the cab. My house is fairly furnished.
   To Mr. John F. Levis—I rented the house, and had a lodger. I hope they will take care of the things till I go back. If the officers left me where I was I would not trouble them again.
   To Dr. Levis—I got my livelihood by going out washing. I got 2s. 6d. a day and a pint of beer. I used to get employment three days of the week. I will never ask them for relief for myself, but I hope they will do something for my poor children.
   Chairman—If you had not taken the book and told them your parish you would be in your home still.
   Mary Hayes—I did not think there was any harm in it.
   To Mr. J. F. Lewis—I came here by Bristol. I was born in Cregg, in the Clonakilty Union, parish of Kilfaughnabeg, near Tralongne.
   To the Chairman—I was not comfortable in the packet. I was brought by train to Bristol, and was there put on board the packet for Cork. It was entirely against my will I was sent on here. I only wish I had as much as would send me back to my home.
   Mr. M'Carthy Downing here entered the room, and on being informed of the case the guardians were investigating, put some further questions to the woman, who in replay said she left her furniture in the house ; that she intended to write to some of her neighbours requesting them to take care of her place. On the day she was removed she had six or seven shillings, which was in the pocket of the gown she wore on Sunday. She hoped it was there still. She would not be allowed to take it. She was paying 3s. 6d. a week for the house, and had portion of it let for 1s. 6d. a week. Her brother, who lives in Whitechapel, took one of the boys for two or three weeks for the purpose of helping her.
   Mr. Downing—What is the name of the man who brought you over.
   Woman—Mr. Elsey, sir.
   Mr. Downing—Did he come here with you.
   Woman—Oh, the rogue, he did, and took us out of Bandon at three o'clock this morning, without asking the children if they were hungry.
   Mr. Downing—This proves the kindness of England towards Ireland.
   Chairman—Cruel is no name for it.
   Mr. Evans said the man who brought the woman seemed to be in a great hurry to get away, and would hardly wait till he (Mr. E.) entered her name in the books.
   Mr. Downing proposed the following resolution, which was adopted unanimously :—
   “Resolved—That the transmission of Mary Hayes, and her two children, aged respectively nine and seven years, from the parish of Hammersmith, in the County of Middlesex, to the Skibbereen Union, under a warrant obtained on the complaint of the guardians of the Fulham Union, presents circumstances of the grossest oppression and inhumanity, and demands from the Poor Law Commissioners and immediate and searching inquiry, and that this Board will wait the result of such inquiry before taking further action in the case.”—Skibbereen Eagle.

   NEW YORK, MAY 17.—Despatches from Greensborough, North Carolina, state that upon the publication of an order from General Schofield, declaring all the slaves in the States free, many of them refused to work, and demanded gratuity from their masters. Conflicts between the whites and blacks are reported to have in some instances resulted in loss of life. Details of Federal troops have been made for the protection of the whites, and to compel the negroes to support themselves. The Scotia had 936,000 dollars in specie. The statement that Davis endeavoured to escape disguised in a woman's dress is believed to be a malicious invention, and is only given upon the authority of a nameless trooper.

   LONDON MAY 26.—The members of the committee appointed to investigate the Taxation of Ireland met again to-day, and adopted the important resolution, that half the expense of Medical Officers, and the entire expense of Schoolmasters in Irish Poor Law Unions should be defrayed from the Consolidated Fund and not from the rates.—Correspondent of the Irish Times.

The Cork Examiner, 30 May 1865
   BELFAST, SUNDAY EVENING.—I regret very much to announce the particulars of a melancholy catastrophe which took place yesterday morning, in the Lough of Belfast, where by six persons have lost their lives. The party were in a pleasure boat, in Crawfordsburn Bay, and the accident occurred by the upsetting of a boat in a squall. It appears that about four o'clock in the afternoon the party left the quay of Bangor in the boat, which was in charge of an experienced boatman, named Michael Hawkins, and that there were then in the boat, besides the boatman, five persons, namely, Mr. Andrew Gilmore and his son, a boy about twelve years of age ; Mr. Richard Allen, assistant engineer under the Belfast Harbour Commissioners ; Mr. Francis Mather, block-maker, and Mr. Joseph Graham, foreman to Mr. Mather. They all lived in Belfast, and had gone down to Bangor to enjoy a few hours' recreation and pleasure. Before starting on their fatal excursion they had taken care to provide themselves with an abundance of refreshments. Crawfordsburn Bay is about three miles from Bangor, in the Belfast direction ; and when the boat had rounded Grey Point and reached the bay, scudding along, it is supposed, with all sail set, it was struck in a squall and capsized. No human eye saw this occurrence ; but shortly after it happened, it is believed, a yacht, belonging to Mr. David Fulton, of Belfast, was proceeding through Crawfordsburn Bay to Bangor, when the attention of those on board was directed to an object like a barrel floating at some distance. The course of the yacht was changed, and two of the crew put off in a small boat, in order to pick up the object that had attracted their notice. On their way evidence of the disastrous event which I am now recording presented itself, first by the appearance of a basket containing cakes, &c., and next by the lifeless bodies of two men floating on the water. In a moment after they heard a cry for help, and, looking in the direction whence it came, observed at some distance towards the shore a man raising his arm in the water, and suddenly disappearing from their sight. They hastened to the spot, but could find no trace of him, as he never again rose to the surface. It was ascertained that this poor fellow was Hawkins, the boatman, who, having been a good swimmer, was making for the shore, when, overcome by exhaustion, he sank. The body of Mr. Mather, still floating, was afterwards picked up and brought up to Belfast in the evening by the Bangor steamboat, but the other body, which had previously been seen on the surface, back uppermost, could not afterwards be discovered. Several things which the pleasure party had with them in the boat were picked up, but the boat itself could not be seen. One of the gentlemen (Mr. Allen) who have thus lost their lives by this unfortunate accident, was exceedingly amiable, and occupied a respectable position in society. He was about thirty-five years of age, married, and has left two children behind him to deplore his untimely end. An inquest will be held on the body of Mr. Mather to-morrow. —Correspondent of the Irish Times.

VIGOROUS Electioneering has commenced. Sir George Colthurst, the sitting member, made an active canvas on Saturday. Mr. Eugene Collins his opponent is now in Kinsale, and is said to have received considerable support. Mr. Thomas Babington is the conducting agent for Sir George,—Mr. John George MacCarthy for Mr. Collins.

   TROUT FISHING EXTRAORDINARY.—A gentleman from Manchester, staying at Mr. Macintyre's Hotel, Inchnadamph, killed on the lochs of Assynt, with the fly, in four days—namely, from the 17th till the 20th May, inclusive, 519 trout.—Inverness Courier.

   A NEW LIBERAL CANDIDATE FOR TIPPERARY.—We have been informed on the most reliable authority that a new Liberal candidate (who is not Mr. J. B. Dillon) is about coming forward to seek the suffrage of the electors of Tipperary at the approaching General Election. His politics are announced to be in every respect in accordance with the principles laid down by the National Association. As we have not been informed of the name of the gentleman in question, we are, at present unable to give particulars as to the other qualification which he possesses to give him a claim on the electors of gallant Tipperary.—Tipperary Free Press.
   A SCANDAL AT MHOW.—In the Hurkaru of the 1st instant we casually mentioned that a short time ago, an officer in the 15th Native Infantry, stationed at Mhow, had been suspended, and that a court of inquiry had been convened to inquire into the charge preferred against him. The result has been that a general courtmartial will shortly assemble for his trial. He stands charged with having falsely accused his commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Stanley, of having ridden down and wounded a sepoy of his regiment. Colonel Stanley denies the fact, which his subordinate officer has undertaken to prove by several witnesses. A man, said to have been cut down, was admitted into hospital suffering from a sword wound received during a brigade parade. Of that there is no question. By whom and how the wound was caused remains to be proved. —Bengal Hurkaru.
