§ MR. VINCENT SCULLY
said, he would beg to ask the Secretary for Ireland whether any official information respecting the conduct of the Antrim Artillery at Kinsale, on the 12th of July last, has been received by the Government?
§ MR. CARDWELL
, in reply, said, that two inquiries had been instituted—one by the Military and the other by the Civil authorities—into the conduct of the Antrim Artillery at Kinsale on the 12th of July; but those investigations had not yet been brought to a conclusion.
§ MR. SIDNEY HERBERT
said, he knew no more of the causes of the riot than his right hon. Friend (Mr. Cardwell). But he could state that the Magistrates of Kinsale despatched a messenger to General Eden at six o'clock in the evening of the ocurrence. Troops were marched from Cork to Kinsale at midnight and at two the following morning, and the General himself was at Kinsale at five in the morning, when the Antrim Militia were marched out of the town.
