AUSTIN DEMOCRATIC STATESMAN, March 31, 1875, p. 2, c. 1
The Federal Revenue office—Col. Pat Malloy's—will be transferred to-day from Tyler to Jefferson.  Tyler is not in tears nor Jefferson supremely blest.  In fact Tyler has not much of a "grip" on Malloy and Jefferson may not embrace him very ardently.  He is a good man, perhaps, for all that.  He is always in office in any event and when he drops out of one he always slides into another without the least effort.  Therefore our concession of his eminent worth.  The officeholders are the aristocracy of the country.  Pay Malloy, not many months ago, was postmaster at Fort Worth.  It didn't pay and Pat dived down out of sight into private life and came up to the surface a revenue collector at Tyler, and seeks a wider field for the development of his genius at Jefferson.  Not many weary months ago he was a nice figurehead for a little Freedman's Bureau under the management, we believe, of one Buell, of happy memory—especially beloved in Marion county where he used a stockade for the entertainment of his white guests.  Moreover Pat Malloy was at one time, if we are not mistaken, one of Gov. Davis's patented, sealed and approved mayors of Jefferson and was much beloved of the people because he was not of their choosing.  But he served, nevertheless, like other mayors we read about, whether the people liked it or not.  In fine we are somewhat inclined to believe that Pat is the fabulous "bully boy with a glass eye"—always in clover.

Notes extracted from Kenosha's Irish Experience 1839-1890 by Maureen Funk

Despite the traditional adherence of the Irish to the Democratic Party, and Irish anti-draft demonstrations nationwide, Kenosha's participation appears to have been valiant. Captain McDermott made the presentation speech to Colonel A. G. Malloy, regimental commander, in which a sword inscribed "Erin-Go-Bragh" was presented him for meritorious service. The text of the speech indicates a strong identification on the part of the Brigade both as American citizens and as "true Irish knights."(54)
