(Before Messrs. JOHN O'SULLIVAN and J. E. STOKER.)
|A MAN named William Dooley was charged by Constable Carroll with an attempt to indecently assault a girl named Bridget Sullivan, at seven o'clock on Sunday morning, on the Dyke.
The woman deposed that she was coming to Mass, and met the prisoner, who acted indecently towards her, and attempted to knock her down. She resisted and screamed. The man failing in his attempt, ran away, and was followed by a Mr. Pierson, of the Lunatic Asylum, to whom the girl complained, and who succeeded in capturing the prisoner near the Western Road.
Informations having been taken, the prisoner was returned for trial before the Recorder.
An unfortunate named Mary Twomey, was charged by another of the same class named Hannah Sullivan, with having assaulted her on one of the days of the races, by striking her on the head with a stone. She was sent to gaol for one month.
A man named Doe was fined 10s. or a week's imprisonment for drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
Mary Ahern summoned her husband John Ahern for having assaulted her. On a previous occasion he had been bound to the peace for his bad conduct towards her. The assault having been proved, he was ordered to find bail for his future good conduct to the amount of £5, or go to gaol for a month.
There were several cases of drunkenness. As they were first offences, a fine of 5s. was imposed in each case.
|CHARGE OF STABBING|
| In the case of John Williams, master of the schooner Hollywith, who was charged by an unfortunate woman named Anne Bell with having stabbed her with a knife on Friday night. She failing to produce evidence of the fact, the magistrates dismissed the charge.
Mr. Blake appeared for the defendant.
Detective-constable Shea put forward a soldier named John Carthy, and charged him with desertion from the Depot Battalion of the Royal Artillery, stationed at Kinsale. He said he arrested the prisoner at the Cork station of the Great Southern and Western Railway.
The sergeant of his regiment having come forward to claim him, the prisoner was committed as a deserter.
After some few unimportant cases, the court adjourned.

|LAST evening the second race for the prize cup, presented to the Cork Bicycle Club by the President, took place, the course being, as on the former occasion, from Queenstown to Cork. The affair appeared to cause a considerable amount of interest, and a large number of people assembled about 6½ o'clock on the Lower Road to witness the end of the contest. The race was run under circumstances much less favourable than the first one, the consequence being that the pace was much slower. The winner of the first race did the distance in 1h. 0m. 25 secs., while last evening the winner had not won the race until 1h. 10m. 35 secs. after the time he started. There were five competitorsnamely, Messrs. Dunne, Harris, Evans, Hilliard, and Atkins. They were handicapped as follows :Harris started at scratch, Dunne got 23 secs., Evans got 2 min. 28 secs., Hilliard, 3 min. 48 secs., and Atkins, 5 min. 58 secs. Dunne started at 5h. 44m. 37 secs. p.m., and arrived at 6h. 55m. 12 secs. p.m.time, 1h. 10m. 35 secs. Harris started at 5h. 45m. p.m., finished 6h. 56m. 16 secs. p.m.time, 1 h. 11m. 16 secs. Hilliard started at 5h. 39m. 12 secs. p.m., and arrived at 7h. 7m. 5 secs. p.m.time, 1 h. 27m. 53 secs. Evans and Atkins had not turned up at half-past seven. They all started up to time, and a good pace was kept up for awhile. Harris and Dunne passed Atkins at Carrigaloe and they also passed Hilliard near the Queenstown Junction. How or where Evans was passed no one can tell.
When Dunne, who was already arrived at Dunkettle drawbridge, he found the bridge raised up, which caused him a delay of 1 m. 35 secs. The bridge having been lowered he started just half a minute before Harris came up. The wind was against the men the whole way, which accounts for the slowness of the race. Mr. M. D. Daly and Mr. James Foley acted as umpires, and Mr. E. Harding as judge and timekeeper.
