§ MR. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that William Taylor, rural postman, Newbliss, attended the Orange demonstration at Clones on the 12th inst., and performed as a drummer, in one of the party bands upon that occasion; and does conduct of this kind on the part of postmen receive the sanction of the Department, or will any remonstrance be addressed to Taylor.
§ MR. HANBURY
William Taylor is employed about four hours a day as a rural auxiliary postman at Newbliss. He attended at the Orange demonstration at Clones, and acted as drummer. He was off duty at the time, and was not in uniform, and the matter is not one of which it is thought necessary to take any official notice.
