The Cork Examiner, 3 June 1879
   A young labourer named Christopher Kearney was charged in the Police Court, Dublin, yesterday, with having killed his mother, by throwing her out of a window. Some formal evidence was taken, and the prisoner was returned for trial. He cried all night in the cell, and appeared to feel his position acutely.

   ANGLING ON THE BLACKWATER.—Anglers in the neighbourhood of Mallow, owing to the late fresh in the river, had some very good sport for the past few days. The river is again low, but is of a favourable colour for the fly. Captain Morgan landed a splendid salmon, weight 27lb. ; Mr. A. O'Connor, Dublin, two, 9lb. and 13lb. ; Mr. J. Bolster, Mallow, one, 9lb. ; Mr. W. Bleasby, do., two, 10lb. and 13lb. ; Mr. W. J. Franks, Carrig Park, one, 23lb. ; Mr. E. O'Connor, jun., Mallow, two, 10lb. and 11lb. ; Mr. A. Benn, Newberry, three, from 9lb. to 11lb., and four peal ; Mr. J. O'Harold, Mallow, one peal ; Captain Digby Coles, Hill Park, Birmingham, one do. Lord Randolph Churchill has intimated his intention of visiting his preserves at Clifford, near Castletownroche, within the present month. During his stay in the South his lordship will put up at the Royal Hotel, which of late is much patronised by the Viceregal party on fishing excursions. I understand Lord Howth has the Careysville waters rented from the 1st of June to the end of the season. His lordship is expected to arrive at his fishing lodge to-day.

   ROBBERY AT THE MALLOW CATHOLIC CHURCH.—On Friday, during the day one of the St. Vincent de Paul boxes in the Mallow Catholic Church was forced open by some person or persons as yet unknown, and whatever monies were in it were abstracted. It is to be regretted that this is not the first time such robberies were committed in the Mallow Church, and it is hoped that the guilty party will be made amenable for this sacrilegeous and most wanton act.—Mallow Correspondent.
   EMIGRATION TO QUEENSLAND.—In accordance with orders issued from the Agent-General of Emigration for Queensland to the Sub-agent at Mallow, the Free Emigration System to the far off climes of Queensland, has been closed to those persons who may wish to emigrate from the district of Mallow. Since the Government have adopted this rather unexpected measure, I am informed numerous applications to emigrate have been made to the agent at Mallow, not alone by the usual class of emigrants, but by small farmers, who, owing to the late failure of crops in the country, met with reverse of fortune, and, much to their disappointment, they found for some reason, best known to the Government, that emigration to the colonies was closed against them.—Correspondent.

THE exhibitions in practical medicine, practical surgery, and practical midwifery have been awarded as follows:—
   Practical Medicine—John Hosford. The answering of Mr. W. E. Ashley Cummins was also specially mentioned.
   Practical Surgery—H. R. Townsend, B. A.
   Practical Midwifery—John E. Lane. The answering of Mr. Myles W. O'Reilly was also specially mentioned.

THREE races will take place on Wednesday. The entries are very numerous. For the first race there are 20 entries ; for the second, 13 ; for the third, 18 ; for the fourth, 13; and for the fifth, 14. There will be keen and exciting competition. The fine band of the 7th Fusiliers will attend. An extraordinary number of tickets have already been disposed of, and the Bicycle Club may look forward to their races being a brilliant success.

   A special sitting of magistrates took place at Douglas yesterday to inquire into a charge of infanticide brought against a young woman named Mary Collins alias Down alias Russell. From the medical evidence it appeared that the deceased infant had suffered suffocation, probably by drowning, and an attempt had been made to strangle it. The magistrates having heard the evidence returned prisoner for trial at the next assizes, refusing bail.

   SPIKE ISLAND CONVICT PRISON.—A rare occurrence, of a religious nature, has taken place on this island during the past week. Since the opening of the place for convicts in 1847, such a spectacle was not witnessed. A mission was conducted and completed by Frs. Anthony and Austin, of the Passionist Order, from Dublin. They came armed authority from Dublin Castle. The entire number of Catholic prisoners received the blessings of this Jubilee, with but few exceptions. The inhabitants of the island outside the prison are now enjoying the blessings of listening to the Holy Fathers.

   QUEENSTOWN TOWN COMMISSIONERS.—The usual weekly meeting of the Road Committee took place yesterday, Sir George Milore in the chair. Others present—Messrs. R. O'Driscoll, Thomas O'Reilly and G. B. Dawson. After the usual minutes of the last meeting were read and the necessary cheques for the week's expenses passed, a letter was read from the Local Government Board, accompanied by the petition lately sent by some of the ratepayers against the commissioners taking the water supply of the town into their own hands. The matter was referred to the monthly meeting on Monday, as well as a letter received on the drainage of the graveyard. A letter was also read from Mr. J. C. Newsom, of Cork, Secretary to the Humane Society, asking, in case the society erected a drinking fountain for the people, would the commissioners guarantee a constant supply of water. This was also referred to the meeting of Monday. —Adjourned.

   A Board of Trade inquiry was concluded at Belfast yesterday, into the stranding of the screw steamer Augusta, of Newcastle, Captain Baker, at Burial Island, county Down, on the 17th of May. The steamer left Glasgow for Venice with coal on the 16th, and struck shortly after midnight, but was floated off at 6 o'clock the same morning and proceeded to Belfast for repairs. The judge. Mr. O'Donnell, R.M., who was assisted by Captain Holt and Captain Castles, nautical assessors, severely censured the captain for not taking the lead after sighting Copelards, but returned his certificate owing to his previous good character and successful seamanship.

   The Queen has conferred the Albert medal of the second class on William Bridges, Quartermaster of H.M.S. Thunderer. At the time of the explosion on board, Bridges was in the shell room, which was filled with smoke and burning fragments. The magazine room was also filled with smoke, and reported to be on fire. All the men stationed in the room escaped as soon as possible, except Bridges, who, taking off his woollen comforter, wrapped it round the burning fragments, and brought them up on the flats. Bridges afterwards went down again to search for any smouldering material that might have found its way amongst the projectiles.

London, Friday Night.    
   The Prince Imperial is seriously ill at Maritzburg. For two days his life has been despaired of, but the care and skill of Surgeon-Major Reynolds, the hero of Ekowe, saved him. It seems he was out of danger when the news of his illness was despatched to the Empress, who has ordered daily special Masses at Chislehurst for his safety and restoration to health.

   Hannah Dobbs, charged with the murder of Miss Hacker at Euston Square, London, was again up for examination at Bow-street Police Court yesterday. Mr. Poland for the prosecution. Mr. Meade defended. Francis Riggenbach, merchant, deposed to having lodged in Euston-square with the Bastendorffs in 1877. Has no recollection of any other lodger being there in September of that year. Peter Bastendorff said he formerly worked for his brother in the house, 4, Euston-square. Recollected when the prisoner went to service there. Kept company with her. Did not believe the prisoner wore a watch when he first knew her. She told him for a long time before that she wore one. She was going to get a watch and chain from her uncle. The watch and chain produced are not like those she wore ; her['s] had a white face, and the chain had larger links. Afterwards saw her with a smaller watch. She told me she changed the other for it. Remember the prisoner telling me she cut her finger with the lamp-glass. Never noticed a bad smell in the house. Doctors Davis, Bond, and Pepper testified to the appearance of the remains, the latter saying that the woman had suffered from inflammation in the right leg. Owing to the absence of witnesses the case was adjourned for two weeks.
   A number of stories are in circulation at Maidstone, Kent, respecting the visit of the Bastendorff brothers, witnesses in the Euston-square mystery case, to the neighbourhood. It seems that they were temporarily engaged hop-picking about September, 1877.

   MALLOW MARKETS.—The supply of Oats brought to market to-day (Friday) was rather limited, and was not equal to demand. White Oats brought from 8s. to 9s., Black Oats 6s. 6d. (currency) per cwt. Potatoes from 10d. to 1s. per 21lbs. (weight).—Mallow Correspondent.
