KEAN MAHONY (MAHONEY)

Drawbridge Street, Cork


When his present Majesty was in this city in the year 1787, he was entertained by the Merchants at Scott's Tavern. Kean Mahony, a working silversmith, then a lad of fourteen, was one of the joyous crowd outside, firing, squibbing, and cheering, in honour of "Prince William Henry." There was a piece of cannon placed in the street, and on one of its discharges the wadding wounded him in his hand. His father waited next day on bis Royal Highness, and was told to come the day following - but, unfortunately an order arrived that evening for the Prince's immediate presence in London, and he was off before morning. Colonel Fitzclarence commanded the 11th regiment here some half-dozen years since, Mahony waited on that gallant and generous officer, and he gave him £5. Some weeks back he took it in his head to go over with a petition to the King. We gave him a letter to Dr. Maginn (who we knew would be ready to befriend a distressed townsman) to advise him how to proceed, but such was the simplicity of the poor fellow, he could not find the Standard office. Thus left to the resources of his own judgment, he hied himself down to Brighton, sent in his petition to the Pavilion, and was desired to call on Friday at the Treasury. He called on Friday, at the Treasury, and got £40. We shall make no comment, but leave the simple statement to speak for itself.

PATRICK BARRY

Cork


SEQUEL TO A QUARREL

A watchmaker named Patrick Barry, quarrelled with his sweetheart, Kate Scully, in Cork on Thursday night. Drawing a razor, he gashed her about the throat, face and hands. She wrested the razor from him and escaped. Barry then cut his own throat. The girl is not expected to recover. Barry's injuries are not so serious.

............. We would suggest, however, that there are other munitions of war besides guns and gunpowder, and that those who consider killing no murder, and the robbery of guns and gunpowder no breach of honesty, will be likely enough to extend their operations to articles which have heretofore escaped attack. Gold and silver are the very sinews of war, and there are goldsmiths' and silversmiths' shops in Cork which might prove an irresistible temptation to Fenians, with an exhausted treasury. The banks no doubt are well secured, but after the repeated proofs we have had of the insecurity of Cork establishments, we think a word to the vendors of precious metals will not be superfluous or out of season.
