      Freeman Journal
      Dublin, Ireland
      Tuesday, July 3, 1764

      The Rev. Mr. William Hodnett, has been collated by the Right Reverend the
      Bishop of Cork, to the Livings of Affadown, &c., void by the Death of the Rev.
      Mr. Waterhouse Shippy.
      Yesterday an Officer belonging to his Majesty's Revenue at Kinsale, brought
      into this Port, the Bellisle of Cork, Captain James Neale, laden with 40 Anchors
      of Tea, and a large Quantity of Tobacco, which he has made a Seizure of.
      This Day Mr Samuel Bagwell was elected common Speaker of this City, for the
      ensuing Year.
      Tuesday last died Cornelius Murphy, Maltster, occasioned by a Fracture he
      received in his Skull on Thursday last at the Lough from three or four Persons,
      one of whom was put in Goal, and the Rest have given Bail for their Appearance
      at the next Assizes. The Coroners Inquest sat on the Body, and brought in their
      Verdict wilful Murder.
      We hear that on Friday Night the 22d past, as Mr. James Hodson, a Merchant
      well known in this City, was going home from where he had supped, he found a
      Woman on her Knees in Castle-street, begging her Life from a Soldier, how seemed
      to threaten it; this Gentleman humanely interposed, by desiring the Watch to
      take him into their Custody; But for this Act of Humanity, he was ill rewarded
      by the Serjeant of the Main-Guard, Daniel McKenzie, who was a looker on; this
      military Gentleman without further Provocation, gave Mr. Hodson several severe
      Strokes on the head with his Fist. When our fellow Citizen extricated himself
      from this GUARDIAN OF THE PUBLIC, he went directly to the Main-Guard-House, to
      lay his Complaint before the Officer, but was answered, that "he was not there,
      nor did they know where he was." Notwithstanding this Obstruction, at coming at
      the Delinquent, We have the Pleasure of informing the Public, that by Mr.
      Hodson's Perseverence and the seasonable Assistance of our Chief Magistrate,
      McKenzie was taken, and brought under proper Guard, to the Justice Office, where
      Examinations were taken against him, and Sureties given, that he shall take his
      Trial for said Offence at the next Quarter Sessions to be held for this City.
      A Faculty is preparing to pass the Seals to enable the Rev. Robert Cashin,
