Cork - Provincial News.
Charleville, Monday, May 12
This day the Court was opened in this town, pursuant to adjournment from Mallow, for the trial of offenders. About 12 o’clock Mr. Serjeant TORRENS and the Assistant Barrister, with upwards of twenty Magistrates, were in attendance on the Bench.

Timothy BUCKLEY, for having concealed arms in his possession, was found guilty, and instantly sentenced to transporation for seven years.

John Sheehy M’NAMARA, for being absent from his dwelling after sun-set and before sun-rise, without being able satisfactorily to account for himself, was also sentenced to transportation for seven years.

BUCKLEY and M’NAMARA were immediately removed from the Court under a strong military escort, and in the midst of the wealings of their relatives and friends, transmitted to Cork on their way to the Hulk at Cove.
They arrived last evening in this city, and without waiting a moment, were put on board one of the steam packets, which sailed soon after for Cove. (Cork Chronicle.)
