HC Deb 08 March 1859 vol 152 cc1475-6

said, he wished to know whether Her Majesty's Government had received any information of the arrival in Cork Harbour of an American vessel, having on board Poerio and other exiles from Naples, and whether it was true that they had murdered the master of the vessel on its way to America, and then brought the vessel to Cork?


said, he had received an account of the circumstances to which the right hon. Gentleman alluded, but that account was merely to the effect that an American vessel, with sixty-two Neapolitan exiles on board, had arrived in Cork Harbour. It did not state that they had seized the vessel on its passage, but merely that they had requested the captain to take them to Cork Harbour instead of to America.

Motion agreed to.

House at rising to adjourn till To-morrow at Two o'clock.
