Cork, Dec. 8. Yesterday Noon the Effigy of a Tradesman in this City was
carried by a Number of People from Blackpool to Watergate-lane, in their Way to
Gallows-green, in order to have hanged it at the Common Place of Execution
there; but being intercepted by the City Sheriffs, and the Main-guard, the Mob
dispersed and the Effigy was taken and broke to Pieces. The above Affair, it is
said, was in consequence of a Dispute between some Masters and Journeymen
Cordwainers of this City.
This Morning was married at St. Finbarry's Church, Baraky Wallis, Esq; of
Ballycrinan, Esq; to Miss Piggot, only Daughter of the late Emanuel Piggott,
Esq; a young Lady possessed of every Accomplishment, with a Fortune of 2000l.
6th.] Mr. Mark Zouch Attorney, was elected Clerk of the Corporation of
Joyners in the Room of Mr. Richard Hatfield, deceased.
The Supernumeries from several Regiments on this Establishment, who have
arrived in Town, were discharged in the Barracks; we hear they will be
incorporated into the Regiments lately arrived from America.
8th.] David Lunt and Juliet Haughton, were tried for the Murder of Mr.
Charles Delany, late of Francis-Street, when the former was found guilty of
Man-slaughter, and the latter acquitted.
10th.] Capt. Green, Mess. Gold, Blake and the Mail arrived in the Fortescue
Packet from Holyhead.
Mess Verickers, Birch, Fletcher, King, Mashall, Mrs. Stackmaster, and the
Mail arrived in the Besborough Packet from Holyhead; for which Place she sailed
the 8th, with Mr. and Mrs. White, Major Burgoyne, Mess. Norton, Williams,
Harley, Langton, and Mr. Mann, a Messenger with an Express.
Died. Last Week, Mr. Henry Lindsey, formerly an eminent Woollen Draper in
It is with Pleasure we can assure the Public, that the Person drowned last
Week at the Bachelor's Quay, which was by misinformation mentioned to be Mr.
Edward Moore, the Brewer, was a Mistake; that Gentleman being still alive and
well to the great Satisfaction of his Friends. The Person who met that untimely
Fate, is as we hear, of the same Name.
