AN elderly woman named Mary White, was charged
at the Police Office on Monday morning by her
master, Jeremiah E. M'Carthy, Esq., J.P., with having
abstracted several articles of wearing apparel, bedding
and other articles of value.

Mr. M'Carthy stated to the Magistrates, that, during
his residence in the country, he entrusted to the
prisoner the care of his house on the Terrace ; and on
his return, he found that the clothes of several of the
beds, and several articles of wearing apparel had been
removed. The prisoner had admitted to a boy named
Kenealy that she had pledged the articles, and that the
tickets would be found in the fire place, where they
were afterwards discovered. Mr. M'Carthy mentioned
that the prisoner had affected insanity, but it appeared
that there was method in her madness.

On the application of Serjeant O'Neill, a respectable
looking servant, who had been employed in the house
of Mr. Gelston, Adelaide Terrace, was remanded until
tomorrow, in order to afford time for procuring further
evidence. Several articles of value including a gold
guard chain, a silver chain, a gold brooch, and several
pairs of silk stockings were missed, a portion of which
was subsequently found on the person of the prisoner.

--The Cork Examiner, 15 September 1847
