THE MOLLY MAGUIRES.
CHAPTER I.
THE MOLLY MAGUIRE IN IRELAND AND THE UNITED STATES.
MOLLY MAGUIRE, a name identified with sad and terrible
records of violence, of bloodshed and murders in the
anthracite coal regions of Pennsylvania, and recalling to
memory tales of equal horror that have been borne across
the ocean from the Emerald Isle. The murders committed
in both localities have a striking resemblance in their inception,
execution, and very frequently in minute details,
and yet, while we regard the one with a feeling of unmixed
horror and repulsion, the memory of the other is enveloped
in a shroud of unhallowed romance. This difference of
feeling is to a certain extent explainable. In the one case
crime stands out unrelieved in its naked enormity, whilst
in the other the feeling with which it is regarded is modified
by the distance of the scene, the mellowing hand of
time, and the magic pen of fiction. The tale of unprovoked
and aimless murder in Ireland excites resentment
and inspires horror; nevertheless, the peculiar position
of the Irish peasant, his modes of thought, and certain
characteristics of his race, compel a feeling of repulsive
pity for the assassin.
