Love Romance In Change of Mind
While Her Fiance Was in Australia Miss Konopak Decided to Marry Dr. Henry Wandless When He Proposed
----
There is a man at the Pierrepont, No. 45 West 32nd St, who believes that a woman has a perfect right to follow the bent of her own disposition and change her mind in love affairs without being criticised. By such a change he has been made, according to his own declarations, the happiest of men, and a man way off in Australia has received a cablegram announcing the revocation of an engagement which might have mde him the joyful one.
Dr. Henry Wandless is the happy man, Miss Grace Konopak, a very beautiful girl of Toledo, is the wife, and Francis McCarty, of Corning NY, an electrical engineer fighting for a fortune in Australia, is the one jilted. Two years and a half ago, Wandless, a young oculist, visited Toledo. He met the beautiful Miss Konopak and began suit for her hand. The oculist is of a retiring disposition and did not move fast. Francis McCarty was in Toledo at the same time. He too met the lovely girl. Being a young man of action, while Wandless was hesitating whether he should offer his hand and fortune to the young girl, McCarty had proposed and was accepted. Miss Konopak then went to Corning to visit McCarty's parents. McCarty had a call from Australia for some remunerative work and left his fiance with a promise from her that she would join him in his new home and that they would be married there. Miss Konopak had every intention in the world of following out the schedule to the letter, but on her way to Toledo, she came to New York first. Here she met Wandless again, and this time he was more fervent in his protestations. More than that, he said something about a long trip just for a marriage, when there might be a wedding here that would be just as happy for her. The girl hesitated and returned to Toledo. This time Wandless acted in earnest. He too went to Toledo. There he pressed his suit and was married before Miss Konopak could change her mind again. Away off in Australia McCarty, who was making elaborate preparations for the wedding, received the cable "Cannot possibly come.". Before McCarty received the letter that followed, the Wandlesses were on their honeymoon.

Martin Wandless Green [Graydon], sea captain of Sunderland, on trial in London for cruelty to cabin boy, 1 Nov 1833
Martin Wandless Green [Graydon], sea captain of Sunderland, on trial in London for cruelty to cabin boy, 1 Nov 1833
Thames Police Office: Yesterday, Martin Wandless Green, master of the ship Actaeon of Sunderland, last from Ireland with corn, and John Routledge, mate of the same ship, were brought before Mr. Broderip and Mr. Combe, charged with committing a most cruel assault on Joseph Calmes, an apprentice belonging to the vessel. William Arnall, a waterman, stated that he was on board Thursday morning and saw the captain beating the boy and the mate afterward assisted in the cruel attack. [Account of beating follows, with the captain's defense.] The captain and mate agreed to each pay the boy 4s and the boy was taken off the ship.
[Note from Holly: I believe this is Martin Wandless Graydon, who was a ship captain out of Sunderland at this time. In 1832, the same ship, Acteon, sailed into Quebec under captain "Grayden". There is no other evidence that Martin Wandless GREEN existed. In 1835, the Actaeon or Acteon, under first mate Routledge, foundered off the coast of Prince Edward Island in Canada.]

SANTA CLAUS COUSIN HELD AS A BURGLAR
Camden Man's Many Presents Procure His Arrest, Though Release Follows

Although, as the police say, a confessed burglar, Thomas Wandless, now in the Passaic Hospital with a bullet wound in his head, proved a veritable Santa Claus to Walter Wandless, his cousin of 1164 Mechanic street, Camden. As a result, Walter was arrested by order of Prosecutor Scovel on suspicion of knowing something about the doings of Thomas, who, it is said, stole from houses at Collingswood and other places. An investigation, however, absolved Walter from all blame.

For fifteen years Walter had not seen his cousin. When Thomas did make his appearance in company with Jean Mitchell, he was apparently pleased with the reunion. He said he was in a prosperous business and as Walter's family was not in the most affluent circumstances, the new-found cousin announced he would send a Christmas box along. This box made its appearance a few days since. Detectives from the Prosecutor's Office say they found it filled with all sorts of wearing apparel for Walter, his wife, and little one. While they were dancing in glee about the presents, Walter was taken into custody, but later released on nominal bail. It is declared by officers that some of the presents, notably several pair of expensive silk socks, were stolen from a small town near Providence, R.I. Other articles cannot be traced.

Trial of Constable George Weddell for the murder of Cuthbert Skipsey; trial of Anthony Wanless for his part in the riot
Trial of Constable George Weddell for the murder of Cuthbert Skipsey; trial of Anthony Wanless for his part in the riot
Newcastle Courant, 11 Aug 1832 - Manslaughter - Friday, 3 Aug 1832: George Weddell, a special constable, was indicted for killing and slaying Cuthbert Skipsey, a pitman, near Chirton on the night of Sunday the 8th of July. Testimony follows.
Mr George Huntley: I am a surgeon at Howdon. I remember being sent for about 8 o'clock on the night of Sunday July 8th to Dobson's public house near Chirton. I examined the body and found a wound in the left breast occasioned, in my opinion, by shot or slugs. The shot wounds were the cause of his death. His name was Cuthbert Skipsey. I knew him before; he was a workman at Percy Main Colliery. The shot had spread; there were 21 wounds in the breast.
[more details follow]
John Heckles: I am master wasteman at Percy Main Colliery...about 8 o'clock I was going from Percy Main to Chirton. I saw a man named Alexander Clark. He was sitting on his hat on a waggon-way. I saw the policemen, 5 or 6, go across the rail-road. As they went past, Clark turned around and said "I'm a pitman, but your are not - you are blacklegs.". One of the police turned back and asked what he meant by insulting them so. Another policeman came back and said "take him, neck him" and they siezed him by the collar and dragged him off...I afterward heard the report of a pistol and saw Skipsey cross his arms and walk some yards. He appeared to be in great agony. I did not see him fall. I saw one of the policeman in front of him when he clasped his hands and another policeman was at his left hand.
William Patteson, a lad: I live at Chirton gate. My father keeps the toll bar...Skipsey laid his hand on the policeman's shoulder and said "Let him be, friend, he's drunk.". The policeman said "Stand back" and shoved him off and shot him. Skipsey put his hand to his breast and fell back on the dyke side. The rest of the police had pistols and struck the men with them before Weddell fired. The pitmen had no sticks or other weapons. Before the shot was fired, I heard someone cry "Fire" - this was before Skipsey laid his hand on Weddell and before he fired.
More testimony from:
Nevison Thompson,age 14, son of Patrick Thompson of Chirton, shoemaker
Josiah Dobinson, a boy
James Wild, a boy
James Arkley, sawyer of Percy Main
W.G. Charlton, a boy
Jane Bryson, niece to Mrs. Dobson of the public house - Skipsey was in the company of Joseph Taylor when he left the pub
Joseph Taylor, pitman of Percy Main Colliery
John Charlton, Richard Cooper, Silas Dawson, and John Jewett, pitman
Michael Robson, Esq., an owner of Burdon Main Colliery - on the 5th of April a number of our pitmen struck and have since ceased to work at the pit. Since the beginning of June we have had policemen stationed about the pit.
T.J. Turnbull, clerk to the magistrates of part of Northumberland; magistrates are Mr Bigge and Mr Brandling
George Waugh, special constable, of Gateshead - we heard the report of 2 pistols. After the 2nd report, which was a signal, we ran up and found a man lying with his hat and coat off in the road. His name was Wild. There were some men about him, trying to get him away. He was struggling and very violent. The next thing I saw was a man of the name of Wanless in custody of Higgs and Corby. The mob was coming to rescue him. The mob was 2 dozen persons, mostly pitman. Gilroy & I went to assist Higgs and Corby and kept the mob off as well as we could. I saw that Wanless was wounded by a blow on the back of the head. I saw Skipsey on the hedge side; he was moving when I first saw him. We made 4 prisoners and took them to the guard house. Wanless was cut with the butt end of a pistol.
Robert Pattison, special constable, of Newcastle - was with George Waugh
Ralph Falcus, chief of constables - I took Matthew Raine with me...the man sitting on his hat on the railway made an oath and said there should be a blackleg going to work in the pit that night. His language was very bad and threatening. I turned around and desired him to go away. He said we were all blacklegs and we should go home and work. He would not leave. I and Weddell tried to remove him. He made a loud noise and threw himself on the ground...about 20 or 30 people came running from Dobson's house, from the Percy Main pit. They seized Clark and rescued him from our custody. Wild then threw off his coat and waistcoat, dared me to fight, and struck me over the head...he struck me again; I thought he was in liquor. I called for assistance. Matthew Raine was to the left of me lying on the ground. Weddell and another man dressed in blue were struggling very hard for the pistol...I heard the pistol go off on my left and then a shot immediately to my right. Higgs was struggling with Wanless for the pistol; Wanless wanted to get the pistol from Higgs...the conduct of the pitmen was so violent that I considered my life in danger. [hissing and yelling from the pitmen in the court]
Matthew Raine, special constable
John Corby, special constable
William Higgs, special constable - Wanless, a pitman, tried to take a pistol from Higgs and to prevent that, Higgs struck Wanless on the back of his head with the butt end of the pistol
Thomas Tate, Thomas Scott, and John Sheldon, grocer of Jarrow, passers-by
John Marley, John Tate, T. Forsyth, G.A. Lambert all vouched for Weddell's good character and peaceable disposition
The jury was instructed to decide if Weddell was guilty of manslaughter (i.e. fired intentionally and was not in danger of his life at the time). The jury deliberated from 1:25 a.m. to 2 a.m. and returned a guilty verdict but recommended the prisoner to mercy.
Weddell was sentenced on Aug 4th to 6 months in prison doing hard labour, the judge having believed him to be in fear of his life and firing on someone else's command. The sentence was received "with marks of disapprobation" by the body of the court.
John Wild, Anthony Wanless, Ralph Turnbull, and William Wilkinson were arraigned on the charge of assaulting Ralph Falcus, Matthew Raine, and William Higgs, policemen in the execution of their duty. Mr Cresswell for the prosecution said he would bring no evidence against Turnbull and Wilkinson and would prefer a charge of common assault against Wild and Wanless, to which they pleaded guilty. Sentenced to be imprisoned for 3 months.
