| Particulars reached Dublin on November 1, of a shocking occurrence near
Mullingar, by which two lives were lost. A farmer named Mulvihill, was attacked and killed by a young bull.
During the struggle word was conveyed to the farm of what was taking place, and Mary Moran, about 30
years of age, at once started with a shovel in her hand, and, reaching the field, got between the bull and
her master's body, which was still being gored by the infuriated animal. The bull then turned on the brave
woman, who used the shovel with all her might. The conflict, however, was of short duration. A violent
blow threw her violently to the ground, and the bull then commenced goring her until a number of men
arrived. Eventually she was got away, but died a few hours afterwards from her injuries.||
| Four men, named Jeremiah Murphy, John Cronin, Daniel Casey, and
Jeremiah Ahern, were charged at a special session held on November 2, at Fountainstown, county
Cork, with the wilful murder of Corporal Ashworth, of the Lancaster Fusileers, stationed at Fort Camden.
After a lengthy inquiry, Murphy and Casey were committed for trial, the other two being discharged. It
transpired that Cronin had endeavoured to protect Private Jordan, who was in deceased's company.|
