>From the Nenagh Guardian.

29th May 1871.

Denis Costello of Mary Street, Templemore, summoned at the local Petty
Sessions for an assault on Richard Wheeler of the same street, told the
bench that he had only placed his hand quietly on Wheeler's jaw. However,
the Constabulary gave him a bad character and he was ordered to be
imprisoned for one month with hard labour.

The Clerk reported to the Roscrea Board of Guardians last week that a blind
man, Michael Murphy, of Clonakenny, on outdoor relief of 2/- a week, had not
been paid for six weeks. The Board considered that the explanation of the
Relieving Officer, William Patt was unsatisfactory, and he was given one
further week to produce evidence as to his administration of the relief in
the area.

Last week an elderly small farmer from the vicinity of Cloughjordan, named
Joseph Hoperoft who had a pension from the Constabulary, died suddenly.
Michael Meagher, Esq., Coroner, having learned the facts of the case from
Dr. Walsh, did not think it necessary to put the ratepayers to the expense
of an inquest. The deceased was about 70 years of age and leaves a large
family totally unprepared for.

Born at Cudville, Nenagh, to the wife of David Young, Esq., Provincial Bank,
a daughter.

At Newport Petty Sessions yesterday, before William Ryan and John Going, an
eggler from the town, who has been continually before the bench for various
offences, was sent to Nenagh gaol for six months, with hard labour, for
beating his wife.

At a meeting of Roscrea Board of Guardians last week, Biddy Treacy and Mary
Ingerton, two women with children, applied for clothes to enable them to
quit the Workhouse. Treacy's application was refused until it would appear
that she had some employment to go to. As Ingerton's husband was in the
House and was not willing to leave, and the Bench also considering that the
clothes she brought in with her were good enough to go out in, her
application was also refused.

Died at her residence, Mallow St. Limerick, Ellie, the beloved wife of the
late William Francis Hanly, MD, Thurles, and sister-in-law to James Hanly,
Esq., JP, Nenagh.

At his residence, East Molesey, Charles Osborne, Esq., of the Exchequer and
Audit Office, Somerset House, youngest son of the late Sir Henry Osborne,
Bart., of Beechwood, Nenagh.

At the last Templemore Petty Sessions, Mr. Treacy, a publican, was charged
with a breach of the licensing act on Sunday, the 13th May. The evidence of
Constable Leary for the prosecution went to show that on the date mentioned
he saw some men near the defendant's premises, a man named Mahony same out
of the shop, witness went into the bar, and found bottles on the counter in
which there was a small quantity of porter. The man found on the premises
swore he only went in for tobacco. Mr. Ryan, Solicitor, Thurles, who
appeared for the defence, asked for dismiss, as the constable was unable to
prove that a sale took place. The Bench imposed a fine of 40/- and ordered
that a conviction be endorsed on the licence.

At the last Templemore Petty Sessions, a man named Morrissey was charged
with stealing a quantity of cement., the property of Mr. John Connolly, on
the 4th May. It appeared that Mr. Connolly had employed the defendant to
work on some repairs at the police barracks, and discharged him. The
defendant then went to the barracks, and brought off with him a bag of
cement, telling the police that he had permission to take it. He was
sentenced to 11 days in prison with hard labour.

On Monday morning between 7 and 8 o'clock Mr. William Fogarty of
Borrisoleigh was found dead in bed. There was no request as the Medical
gentleman of the family, Dr. Power, stated that Mr. Fogarty had been under
treatment with him for heart disease, and that this was the cause of his
death. Deceased was about 35 years of age.

At the Town Commissioners Court, before J.V.Golen, Esq., Ellen Finn was
fined £2, or three months in prison with hard labour, at the suit of
Constable Ryan, for loitering and importuning. A similar fine was recorded
against Mary Finn at the suit of Constable Coughlan. Some time ago both
defendants got three months in prison each for the same offence, warrant not
to issue unless they were again found offending. They were transmitted by
train to Limerick gaol.

An inquest was held this afternoon by Michael Gleeson, Coroner, on the body
of Patrick Reardon, a peddler, who died yesterday of injuries he received on

He had his skull fractured, but denies knowing who committed the outrage.

On the night of the September fair a man from the mountains was badly beaten

current coin of Tipperary.

A Nenagh boy, hailing from William Street, named Michael Brien, having been
gazetted in the "Hue and Cry" as having contemplated a burglary by
attempting an entrance down the chimney of Mrs Catherine Fitzpatrick
(mistaking it for Mrs Mullins smoky outlet), where he stuck fast, one of the
Limerick police arrested a young man on suspicion last Saturday. One of the
Nenagh constabulary who was send for the purpose of identification, found
that is was not "Simon Pure" which was caught, but his brother Jimmy Brien.
It is said that Michael is now "bowld soldier boy" with a regiment down at
Newry. If identified he will soon serve under an officer of a different
regiment, namely, Captain Chippendale, Governor of her Majesty's Prison in
