THE MALL.—This fine thoroughfare runs at right angles to the Grand Parade, and is the street where the chief professional men and merchants of the city do business. The city was originally built on an island, and the South Mall at present occupies the site of one of the intercepting branches of the river, which a century ago formed by its southern side a triangular island, the other sides being Charlotte Quay and Morrison Quay. The city of Cork, the southern metropolis of Ireland, and admirably situated for trade and commerce, contains not only many beautiful streets and buildings, but, in the language of a tourist, presents such an attractive prospect as to equal that of the Bosphorus. It is also noted for the intellectual character of its people, and its many excellent educational and public institutions. It has also long been the chief emigration port from Ireland.
