§ MR. MAGUIRE
said, in reference to some observations made before he entered the House with regard to the Mayor of the city he represented, he wished to ask, Whether that gentleman had not on two occasions—namely, the ball given on St. Patrick's night, and the ball given by the Foresters in Cork—distinctly repudiated the sentiments uttered by certain persons on those occasions?
§ MR. CHICHESTER FORTESCUE
said, he had made it his business to examine the reports in the Cork papers, and could confirm strictly and literally what had been said by his hon. Friend.
