84" MrNUTES OF EVIDENCE BEFORE SELECT COMMITTEE Appendix of the corporation, through their grand jury, to extend their power of taxation to this ( A.) parish, the experience of many years having fully proved how much that power has been abused, and what large sums of money, levied off the city and liberties, are still unaccounted for. " Resolved,— That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded by our chairman to our representative in Parliament, Thomas Spring Rice, Esquire, and that he be requested to oppose any attempt which may be made to subject this parish to grand jury assessments. " Limerick, 4 April 1S22. " John Norris Russell, Chairman." " To the Honourable Charles Bushe, His Majesty's Solicitor General for Ireland, & c. & c. & c. " The memorial of Patrick Shea, of Ballinacurra, humbly sheweth, That your memorialist obtained a presentment at spring assizes 1815, from the grand jury of the city of Limerick, for the sum of 461. - 2 s. 6d.; that your memorialist fairly and honestly executed the work confided to him, and accounted for the same according to law; that Edmond Morony, late city treasurer, refused to pay the memorialist the sum he was legally entitled to receive, and that a balance of ill. 17s. 8d. still remains outstanding and due; that in consequence of such non- payment, your memorialist has been decreed by the assistant barrister, on the 18th of October 1819, for labouring work performed in the execution of the presentment as afore- said, and costs equal to one half of the debt have been incurred by memorialist ; that your memorialist has also been summoned before the right worshipful the Mayor of Limerick, for the recovery of other parts of the said money; that your memorialist having paid all city taxes due to the said city treasurer, humbly submits to your lordship the extreme hardship of his case, and the injustice which deprives him of what he legally claims, when your memorialist has cleared off all public rates to and for the last assizes. Your memorialist submits the facts of his case to your lordship, with humble confidence that your lordship will call upon the said Morony to account for the public money confided to him, or that your lordship will afford the memo- rialist such other redress as to your lordship's wisdom may seem expedient. " And he will ever pray. " County of Limerick, July 22d, 1820." " Patrick Shea." " In the matter of Edmon'd Morony, late treasurer of this city, I found an order on the Crown Book of spring assizes 1820, prout,— Mr. Lloyd as counsel for Mr. Morony ( insisted Mr. Morony being present), upon his part, that there is no jurisdic- tion in this court to enforce such an order against a treasurer out of office, and that Mr. Morony not being prepared to go into the accounts required by it, declines obedience to it at present. I found another order of the same date on the secretary of the grand jury prout, who informed me, that he had applied yesterday to the clerk of the crown, as the proper officer, to give satisfaction on the subject of that order, and referred me to him. The Reverend John O'Donoghue then informed me, that Mr. Parker, the clerk of the crown, was absent in London, and that he, as his friend, and his clerk, P. T. Tuckey, who was to act as his deputy at these assizes, had nothing to say on the subject of the said order. After saying that, Mr. O'Donoghue handed to me a paper, which I have inspected." " Edmond Morony, Treasurer— William Norris, Robert Briscoe, Trustees— to the King— Morony, £. 2,000, Norris, Briscoe, 1,000 each— Heirs, executors, administrators. Whereas the above- named Edmond Morony was duly and legally elected and appointed treasurer for the corporation aforesaid :— Now the condition of this obligation is such, that if the said Edmond Morony shall justly and truly account in manner and form and at all times required by any law at present subsisting, or to be required by any law that hereafter may be made relating to the same, and that he shall at all times justly and fairly and truly pay and account for all money which he shall have received as treasurer; and that he shall duly and faithfully discharge the duties of his said office in every respect; and that he, his heirs, executors and administrators, shall or will, on his death, resignation, removal or dismissal, deliver unto his successor in office all books, papers, affidavits and accounts, deposited with him, or kept by him as treasurer, and pay and hand over, & c."
