6, ON PETITIONS RELATING TO LIMERICK TAXATION. 213 Whereupon, the petitioners against and in favour of the said bill were several days heard Appendix before us by their counsel, and the petitioners in favour of the bill offered to give evidence * / n \ of the several matters contained in their several petitions; but alderman Andrew Shepherd, v y who was employed by, and attended as agent, for the mayor and said nineteen common ixTu-^- councilmen, having admitted that every recital and matter contained in the preamble of the ^" er^' bill were true, and that the same had been fully proved upon oath before the committee of the House of Commons, to whom the same had been referredl8 » It appears to us, that several great abuses have been of late committed by the magistrates co'^ inucd. and common council of the said city, and that the said magistrates and common council, by having the possession of the city seal, and of the estate and revenue of the corporation, have been enabled to support themselves in such oppressions, against the course of the laws, and that the interposition of the Legislature appears necessary, for redressing the several grievances and oppressions under which the citizens and inhabitants of the said city labour; and it appears to us, after the most mature deliberation, that the several regulations made by this bill, are necessary for the peace, order and good government of the said city. Wherefore, we recommend this to your Lordship, as a proper and reasonable bill to be passed into a law, and desire you will be pleased to have it returned to us in the usual form. We are, My Lord, Your Lordship's most humble servants, DUNK, HALLIFAX. Geo. Armagh. Inchiquin. Lowth. Will. Meatli. J" Ponsonby. A. Trevor. Nath. Clements. Fra' Andrews. W. G. Hamilton.

Council Office, Dublin Castle, 17th July 1822. Sir, IN compliance with your letter of the 13th instant, I send you herewith in duplicate, a copy of a letter, dated the 13th March 1762, from the Lord Lieutenant and Privy Council of Ireland, to the earl of Egremont, His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State, transmitting u bill, entitled, " An Act for the better regulating the Corporation of the City of Limerick, and for redressing the several Grievances and Oppressions under which the Citizens and " Inhabitants of the said City labour," in order that the same may be forwarded, to be laid before the Committee of the House of Commons on Limerick Taxation. I am to acquaint you, that there does not appear to have been any letter from the Lord Lieutenant and Council in 1761, relating to the said bill. I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient humble servant, William Gregory, Esq. J. Patrickson, & c. See. 6,7.
