Appendix ' ( A.) Mr. E'iward Parker. ( 28 June.) 108 M I N U T E S O F E V I D E N C E B E F O R E S E L E C T C O M M I T T EE Have you extracted from that book, an account of the presentments for Mr. Mo- rony ?— Yes. By whom are the grand juries of the city of Limerick appointed?— By the sheriffs. Who are the gentlemen generally summoned upon those grand juries ?— A great number of the council, aldermen, and burgesses, and some persons who are not members of the council. Are they, or are they not, generally speaking, individuals who are considered agreeable to the corporation ?— Yes. You are acquainted with many of the principal merchants who reside in the parish of St. Michael's?— Yes. Do you know many of those gentlemen of large property, and of great respec- tability, who have never, within your recollection, been summoned to serve upon the grand juries?— I do. For instance, Mr. Kelly and Mr. Roche ?— I never recollect their serving upon the grand juries. When was Mr. Morony appointed to the office of treasurer ?— In the spring of the year 1811. How long was Mr. Morony continued in office ?— I do not recollect. Was there an account stated and settled between the treasurer and the public, before the going judge of assize at spring assizes, 1818?— There was an account stated and settled, I believe, before the grand jury. There was a committee of the grand jury appointed, was there not ?— Yes. Is that account signed by the treasurer?— Yes; there is here a copy of it. What balances appear due from the treasurer on the face of that account ?— On the face of this account, there appears to be a balance of 2,5001. And on the face of another account, what appears to be due ?— 2,500. Is that account signed by Mr. Morony, the treasurer?— Yes. And is it also signed by Sir William Smith, the going judge of assize?— Yes. Acknowledging that balance to be due ?— Yes. Those balances are due to the consolidated fund ? — So it appears by the account. Turn to the account of the year 1819, and find, whether Mr. Morony is still con- tinued treasurer ?— So it appears by this book. Did Mr. Morony, subsequently to that balance, continue in office, or not ?— It appears that he did. Turn to the order of court made by the judge of assize at spring assizes, 1820 ; is that your name affixed to it ?— It is. What order did the judge then make?—" Ordered by the court, that Edmond Morony, late treasurer of the county of the city of Limerick, do account upon oath, on the first day of the next assizes, for all sums received by him on the foot of the several presentments made by the grand jury of the county and city of Limerick, to reimburse the government for the sums advanced by them to make the new Tippe- rary road, and the new gaol; and that he do attend on the said first day of the assizes, with all books of accounts and other documents relative to said presentments, and the levying thereof." That is an order to account at the next assizes ?— Yes. Did Mr. Morony so account ?— No. . Can you inform the Committee, whether that balance remains due, or whether it has been paid ?— I believe it has not been paid. Is that the amount of the presentments for Mr. Morony ? [ A paper being handed to the witness]— Yes. [ It was delivered in, and read, as follows " Amount of several presentments to Edward Morony, for 1812, 1813, 1814, 1815, 1816, 1817:— Spring assizes 1812 Summer assizes 1812 - - - - Spring assizes 1813 Summer assizes 1813 - Spring assizes 1814 - Summer assizes 1814 Spring assizes 1815 Summer assizes 1815 - Spring assizes 1816 - Summer assizes 1816 Spring assizes 1817 Summer assizes 1817 - Will £. s. d. 158. 18. 0. 156. 11. 8. 205. 1. 6. 245- 11. 2. 224. 12. 6. 257- 18. 6. 212. 16. 2. 186. 12. 8. 14. 6. 119. 3- 3- 114. 7- 4- 43- 10. 0."
