      A few Days ago a Master Smith went to a Distillery in Britain-street to buy
      some Whiskey, and trying whether it was proof, having a Candle in his Hand, one
      of the Workmen came behind him, took off his Wig, and threw some Spirits on his
      Head, which communicating to the Candle set Fire to his Face and the Top of his
      Head, and burned him in a shocking Manner. He has since swore against the Man,
      who it is to be hoped may meet with the Reward of his Barbarity.

      Water-row, on Ormond Quay; they almost choaked him with his Handkerchief, to
      prevent his crying out, then robbed him of about four Shillings and half a Leg
      of Mutton, after which they inhumanly threw him down the Steps (opposite to the
      Row) into the Liffey.
