Details:Michael Gallaghar per ship Cawdry, in government service, charged with neglect of duty. Patrick Tully, signal man, states - The beacon light on the Hill was nearly extinguished last night at about ten o clock. It was the prisoner s duty to attend the fire at that hour. The fire had been bad during the evening and I reprimanded him for allowing it to be so. When I discovered that the fire was out at the time I have just mentioned, I gave him in charge of Mr. Muir. The fire is frequently bad in consequence of the prisoners neglect. The prisoner in his defence states - that he used every means to make the fire burn, but could not on account of the bad quality of the coals and the absence of wind.
