     On the 26th ult., upwards of one thousand of the brethren walked into town in "martial array," as if in defiance of the authorities, who found it necessary to increase the police force very considerably and have a company of the 3rd Regiment from Armagh. The Orangemen attacked the police, some of whom were seriously injured, one of them, I believe, dangerously. A terrible riot ensued, and the Riot Act had to be read by Mr. Miller, R.M., the utmost forbearance having been used towards the mob, and completely without effect. In fact, they seemed to gain confidence by the forbearance shown them, and is was only when things assumed a very serious and threatening aspect that strong measures had to be taken. Several of the ringleaders have been arrested, and the police are very active in their endeavours to have more of them made amenable.


BELFAST, MONDAY NIGHT- The Lord Mayor of Dublin and the Lady Mayoress were entertained in the Music Hall here this evening by the Presbyterian body of Belfast, in return for the compliment paid by his lordship to the general Assembly at the recent meeting in Dublin. The Moderator of the General Assembly occupied the chair. The proceedings passed off with great eclat, the entertainers being joined by gentlemen of other religious communities.

[The Lord Mayor of Dublin at this time was William Lane Joynt, son of William Joynt and Arabella Lane. The Lady Mayoress was Jane Russell Joynt, dau. of John Russell and Hannah Myles.]

     AFFAIR BETWEEN THE POLICE AND CIVILIANS- At the Head Office on Monday, three men named John Molloy (labourer), John Carey (labourer) and James Carey (sawyer), were charged by Acting Inspector Dagg, with having caused a disturbance in Thomas-street on Saturday night. It appears that the prisoners had been drinking in Mrs. Andrew's public-house, where a disturbance ensued, which caused the police to interfere. The prisoners having been brought outside, a large crowd collected, and stones were thrown repeatedly at police. Inspector Flowers and four horse police then arrived and were also assaulted by the crowd, who vigorously fired stones at them. One of the policemen named Byrne, was struck with a stone, and so seriously injured, that it was necessary to remove him to hospital. One of the horses was also injured. Some of the police drew their revolvers and formed square, and thus kept off the crowd, while others brought the prisoners to Newmarket station. Some of the principal disturbers escaped and were not since arrested. The prisoners were fined one pound each, and one pound costs.

     AWARD TO THE METROPOLITAN POLICE- The 1,000 voted by the Legislature to the Dublin Metropolitan Police for their services during the recent Fenian movement, was on Thursday last distributed amongst the force.


     We are glad to learn from the Cork papers that the prosperity of the butter trade, for which that city has long been a chief emporium, has not been lessened by the ill-natured strictures recently published upon Irish butter in some English journals. It is true, indeed, that the Cork butter merchants have, to a great degree, lost their hold upon the London market, but this had been owing not to any falling off in the quality or make of the article they supply, but to the fact that they have found a better market for their produce in the manufacturing districts of England. It now comes out that the attacks upon the quality and makeup of Irish butter to which the metropolitan papers gave such prominence, originated from the jealousy of the London butter trade, which previously engrossed the supply of the manufacturing districts. Every branch of Irish enterprise and industry has suffered from English jealousy and the false representations to which 'unscrupulous rivals resort. It is, therefore, the duty of the Irish press to meet such misrepresentations with prompt exposure. In the recent instance, the false reports did some temporary injury, because the refutation of them was too long delayed.

     DIOCESE OF CLOYNE- The solemn dedication of the new Catholic church at Kanturk is fixed for Sunday, 20th October. His Eminence, Cardinal Cullen, Lord Archbishop of Dublin, will preach the dedication sermon. More than half of the prelates of Ireland have already signified their intention of being present.

Will Commence on FRIDAY, 1st NOVEMBER, 1867

     The Irish peasantry have been frequently charged by their enemies with being an intractable race, insensible to kindness, ever-indulging in vague desires for the possession of their landlord's properties-in a word, a race to be ruled with an iron rod. Wherever the opportunity occurs, facts give the lie to such statements. A kind resident landlord, mindful of the duties as well as the rights of property, is, alas! a scarce luxury among us; but when one occasionally appears, where is he more honoured and loved than in Ireland? The public prints recorded last week one of those agreeable but too few re???? between landlord and tenant in this country- we allude to the festivities at Balyna, the seat of the Right Hon. Richard More O'Ferrall, on the coming of age of his son. Such celebrations we know are sometimes delusive; but we have the testimony of the respected parish priest, the Rev. Mr. Treacy, in addition to information from other sources, to convince us that these rejoicings but rendered justice to the worth of Mr. O'Ferrall, and to the feelings of affection entertained for him by his tenantry. The proceedings were of the most interesting character, and their success was greatly promoted by the unwearied exertions of the excellent schoolmaster of the district, Mr. John Traynor.
     Along with the outward respect which a good landlord always enjoys, is to be added the higher and holier tribute of a satisfied conscience. He is greeted in his rambles by looks of contentment-unlike the tyrant of the fields, who, although armed to the teeth, and occasionally protected by one or two members of the Royal Irish Constabulary, yet fears the lawless vengeance his crimes have provoked. The good landlord, in moving through his estate, sees everywhere smiling homesteads and happy faces; the rack-renter beholds nothing but hovels inhabited by serfs whom he dreads, against some of whom he is continually swearing informations for sending him threatening letter5s, or making attempts on his life. Still worse, if possible, is the absentee from choice, who is unceasingly writing to his agent for money, in order that from the hard-wrought earnings of wretched peasants, he may have means to squander on idle or criminal dissipation. We shall pursue the contrast no further but shall only remark that those who most loudly denounce Fenianism would do well to remember that prime amongst its promoters are heartless land-owners, and that  a number of fair-minded, kindly disposed proprietors, spread over the country would effect more for its suppression than the services of all the crowd of lawyers and soldiers in Great Britain can command.


     With some honourable exceptions ,we believe, the gentry of Ireland are the most useless of their class in the entire world. They have no national aspirations, no prominent desire to exalt the country in either literature, arts, commerce, or manufactures. They live in it, but their conduct does not prove that they look upon it as their native land. In other nations the gentry feel themselves to be a part of the population, and they often identifythemselves with any cause which will exalt the people and bring happiness to their homes.
     But in Ireland we can discover no such disposition. The gentry are separated from the people, and they seem quite careless of how the country is treated, or of the miseries or wrongs it may suffer. Where at present are nay of them interesting themselves for the benefit of the public? We do not observe them in Louth, Monaghan, Meath, Cavan, or Armagh, doing a single act that would be of service to the nation. They know that it is far behind England in wealth, and they will do nothing to increase its prosperity. They are aware that it suffers from bad government, and they will not make any exertion to render that government better. They observe the people driven form their homes by unjust treatment; but they won't move hand or foot to put an end to this disastrous drain of the population. And last March they saw that a seditious outbreak took place in the South, and they will do nothing to prevent its repetition.
     No nation ever prospered in which those who live by the sweat of the people spent their time  in luxury and ease; and if Ireland is suffering from poverty and want of labour for its working class, most of the blame rests with the gentry of the country, who look on unmoved, and will do nothing to obtain a better government, and refuse to assist in restoring its commerce and manufacturing industry.--Dundalk Democrat.


     MANCHESTER, THURSDAY- This morning the Fenian prisoners were brought up at the City Police Court for examination before Mr. Fowler, the stipendiary, and a full bench of magistrates. They were brought from Belle Vue jail in two police vans, escorted by a troop of Hussars and two companies of the 57th infantry, the latter being conveyed in and on two omnibuses. There was also an omnibus load of armed policemen. An unusual number of people witnessed the procession to the court. In the police court the infantry were placed-they occupied the entrance hall below. The hussars were kept in readiness at the Albert-street Police Barracks, close by. Round about the courthouse, and in front of it particularly, there was a strong body of police, armed with loaded revolvers, which they carried in holsters suspended from a belt.
     Mr. Jones, barrister, instructed by Mr. Roberts, appeared for Allen and Shore, and Mr. Cottingham appeared for Larkin. Mr. Roberts appeared for most of the other prisoners.
     The prisoners were brought into court handcuffed, and arranged in the jury box and up the dock. They numbered exactly thirty.
     The counsel and solicitors made an application to the magistrates, asking them to interfere and give orders to the police that they should not bring into court the prisoners handcuffed, as it was contrary to all rule and custom in this country.
     Mr. Fowler replied that the case was an extraordinary one, and the magistrates must decline to interfere with the police, who were the parties answerable for the safe custody of the prisoners, and they must, therefore, use their own discretion as to how they bought the prisoners into court.
     Mr. Higgins stated the case for the prosecution and said the charge against all the prisoners concerned in the attack on the van was one of wilful murder. The men charged with the murder were- Allen Gould, Larkin, Moorouse, Pat Kelly (county Galway), Maguire, J. Martin, Darley Brennan, Newton W. Martin, Carroll, M. Williams, Morris T. Maguire, Wilson, Kelly, Sherry, Foley, M. Morris Bacon, Bryan Coffey, Thomas Ryan, Boylan Gleeson, Corcoran, Kennedy and Thomas Scally.
     Mr. Higgins said he should not proceed against John Morris to-day, and he was ordered to stand down.
    Police Constable Yarwood's evidence, given on a previous occasion, was first read over and sworn to.
     In reply to Mr. Higgins he said he saw at the attack on the van Allen, Larkin, Gould, Boylan and Thomas Maguire, also Bacon, the man with the crutch; he recognized no other; Allen he saw go towards the back of the van; the man Bacon I saw for the first time in a public-house in Hyde-road when I came from the jail after the pursuit of the prisoners; it is a public-house on the Manchester side of the archway.
     Mr. Jones again applied to the bench to order that the handcuffs should be struck off the hands of the prisoners, who were suffering not only an indignity but physically, Allen's and Gould's hands were swollen much, and gave them great pain, so much so that they could not pay that attention to the evidence which it was necessary they should do, in order to suggest to their legal advisers.
     Mr. Roberts followed on the same side, as did also Mr. Cottingham.
     Mr. Fowler said he regretted that Mr. Jones had called the attention of the court to some of his (Mr. Fowler's) friends, military officers, sitting on the same bench as the magistrates.
    Mr. Jones replied if they were Mr. Fowler's private friends, they had no more right on the bench than his friends. His friends were behind the dock, among the public, so should Mr. Fowler's.
     Mr. Fowler resumed- With regard to the handcuffs he would not order them to be taken off without the advice of the police.
     Mr. Jones hereupon rose and said- As a member of the English bar, he must decline to sit in any court where the police were allowed to override the magistrates, and he must return his briefs, rather than lead himself to countenance and such injustice to prisoners, and he further would do so on behalf of public justice. Here are your briefs, Mr. Roberts. I am very sorry to return them; but I cannot bind myself to such proceedings as these, where prisoners are thus painfully handcuffed.
     Mr. Jones then withdrew.
     Mr. Fowler said such being the case he would, if Allen, Gould, and others for whom Mr. Jones appeared (his having thrown up the briefs), adjourn the hearing at once, if they wished it.
     They replied they had more faith in Mr. Jones than in any one else.
     Mr. Fowler said the magistrates would adjourn and consult with Captain Paulin, the Chief Constable, with regard to the propriety of taking off the handcuffs.
     The magistrates then retired.
     Mr. Jones had left the court before this and as he was packing up his books and papers, there were several hisses proceeded from the body of the court.
     Mr. Fowler (the magistrates having returned into court) said the magistrates, after due deliberation, had come to the unanimous conclusion, owing to information that the authorities had received, must not be taken off. At this announcement there was some loud applause, which was directly suppressed.
     Mr. Jones declined to re-appear.
     Allen Gould, and other prisoners, objected to be represented by any one but Mr. Jones, in whose hands they had place their lives and liberties. As for Gould, he said he would take no part in the proceedings which appeared to him like a farce. If this was English justice, he had done with it.
     Afterwards the handcuffs were changed to the prisoners' other hands, and the examination was proceeded with.
     Thos. Patterson, a puddler, said he was about 400 yards off from the van when the mob attacked it; he got to within 10 yards of the van; he got on a wall, and saw from 30 to 40 men firing pistols, as near as he could guess; the van had got eight or ten yards through the arch; he saw men breaking the van top in with stones; I heard a man speak, dressed in a white top and corduroy trousers; he was at the back of the van, and said, "Shoot the b____s; he's inside;" I do not now see him; at that time Allen was running about, with two revolvers in his hands, threatening to shoot anybody that might approach him; he then went to the back of the van and placed both the revolvers in the ventilator; I then heard one report of firearms followed by a scream; the scream was that of a woman; afterwards I saw the door opened, I don't know how, and Sergent Brett fall out; I saw two women and two men come out of the van; both the men had handcuffs on and Allen, who was there said, "Arrah, Kelly, I'll die for you before I'll give you up!" after Kelly and Deasy had gone, Allen had then two pistols in his hands, but I did not afterwards see him fire; Allen, Gould and Larking stopped behind the rest and they then went away together in the direction of the Sheffield Railway, whither both Kelly and Deasey had gone; I also saw Pat Kelly, Galway, there throwing stones at the van and the policemen, as I did William Martin; after they had ran away I went and looked at Brett, after which some others and I ran in pursuit; I was one of the men who caught Allen in the Midland Railway yard; as we  were following, Allen turned round and fired at a man named Mulholland; Larkin had then no pistol; there were some trucks on the Sheffield line; Larkin ran past those tracks, but I did not see him there do anything; after Larkin wsa taken I proceeded with the rest after Allen and Gould; I helped to take Allen about three yards from Ashton Old Road; he had a revolver in his hand and said he would surrender, but he had first several times fired at us; I saw a man take out of his pocket a book, and old pipe, and some cartridges, which were given up to the police.
     Cross-examined-Had been with the police a good deal. Thirty to forty men were throwing stones. Was not nearer the arch than thirty or forty yards.
     George Pickup also saw the disturbance at the arch. When shots were fired the police on the box tumbled off as fast as they could. He saw Allen fire through the ventilation hole. Allen sot at witness twice, and also at a young man who was hit in the foot. Saw Gleeson throwing stones at the people.
     The witness was cross-examined by Mr. Cottingham and Mr. Roberts, who succeeded in shaking his testimony as to the positive identification of Gleeson.
     Mr. Higgin said, as this particular charge against Gleeson, rested upon the testimony of this witness, he felt it his duty to withdraw the charge against him. The prisoner was accordingly discharged.
     The examination was then adjourned until the next day.
     The prisoners were removed to the Albert-street Police station, under the care of the military, General Sir J. Garvock having made himself responsible for their reproduction on the following morning.

     MANCHESTER FRIDAY NIGHT- The investigation was resumed to-day. The prisoners who had been kept all night in the Albert-street police station guarded by a strong military escort, were again brought into court handcuffed in couples. A mass of evidence was produced implicating several of the persons in the affair, but little new was absolutely adduced. Some amusement was occasioned by the examination of an amateur photographer, who, under a rigid cross-examination, said he was very likely the author of the sensational pictures in this week's Illustrated Police News. He saw Allen caught, and also identified several of the prisoners as being present at the attack on the van. Mr. Higgin, for he prosecution, intimated that the evidence he had anticipated in proving that the prisoner M'William was present was not forthcoming, whereupon the prisoner was at liberty. The other twenty-six prisoners were then removed to the Albert-street police station, where they will be kept under military guard, and again brought up for further examination this day.
     A second batch of prisoners was then brought up, and the following, against whom no evidence was forthcoming, were discharged- William Luther, Matthew Boulger, Peter Lynn, Wm. John Wemis, James Wood, Patrick Cloney, Patrick Barragan, John Butler, Patrick Hogan and Willaim Wells. The rest were remanded.

     MANCHESTER, SATURDAY- The twenty-seven prisoners charged with the murder of Sergeant Brett were again brought up at the City Police Court to-day under military guard The prisoners were placed in the dock handcuffed as before.
     Mr. Higgin applied to have them sent for trial without any further evidence being taken.
     Mr. Roberts- I ask you to let me know-to let that poor fellow Allen know- all the evidence he is to be met with at the special commission which is coming directly, some say, that Manchester may be ride of them. Do for God Almighty's sake let us have all the justice the law will give. Do not gentlemen, sitting there- do not, Mr. Fowler, sitting there-sully your names by sanctioning a practice which would let every amount of injustice that could possible be perpetrated under the name and sanction of the law.
     The examination of witnesses was then resumed.
     Emma Halliday- I was in the police van on the 18th of this month. I was in the alley. There were fiver more besides myself. Sergeant Brett was there. I remember the van being stopped. I heard a sound like a large stone being thrown at the side of the van, and then a pistol fired, like as it were at the horse's head, in front of the van. Then some one came to the back of the van, at the outside, and the trap-door was opened. It had been open on the swivel all the time we were going. Brett closed the trap, but did not fasten it. Some on came and began to knock at the back of the door. Brett looked through the ventilator and said, "Oh my God, its these Fenians!" The women began to scream, and said they should all be killed. The man outside then asked Brett to give them the keys. The trap was then shut. Brett was doing his best to keep it shut. When the man asked for the keys Brett said he would not give them up. I could not see who the man was. He asked for the keys again, and said that if he would give up the keys they would do him no harm, but let two men out of the van. Brett said, "No, I will stick to my post to the last." Some one then got on the top of the van, got a large stone and beat a large hole in the van over where Brett stood. Two of the women seized hold of Brett and tried to pull him out of the way of the stone falling on him. The stone did not fall through. The women said to Brett, as they were pulling him back, "You'll be killed." A stone was then forced into the trap, and Brett could not close it again. A man then came and put a pistol through the trap. Brett was looking through the higher part of the ventilator. I was looking lower down and saw the pistol; and I pulled Brett away, and I said, "O Charlie, come away, look there!" I took hold of his coat, and tried to pull him away. As I did so, his head came on a level with the trap, and the pistol was discharged. Brett fell in a stooping position against the door. I could see the men who fired the pistol. I have seen him since at the City Jail. [The prisoners were ordered to stand up, and witness asked to point out the man.] The man with the light coat and blue necktie (Allen) was the man who fired. Allen came to the door and asked for the keys, but we said we dare not give them to him. He threatened to blow our brains out if we did not give them up. A woman then got the keys out of Brett's pocket and handed them through the opening. There were two women, and I cannot say which of them gave up the keys. The door of the van was then opened, and the women came out, I amongst the number.  Brett fell out. I was the third that came out of the van, and as soon as I got out I ran to the City Jail as fast as I could through the crowd.
     Ellen Cooper was next sworn. She said- I was in the van. I had been sent to the jail for robbery. I remember the van stopping in the archway. I heard pistols firing and stones throwing. There was a large flag stone on the top, pressing. There was a pistol fired through the ventilator beneath the driver's seat in front of the van and passed my bonnet. Two shots were afterwards fired through the door. Then there was stone-throwing, and a noise on top as if they were pressing a piece of flag through. There was swearing. I took hold of Brett and said, "Come away; you will be shot." He refused but put his hand to the trap-door. Some men outside were trying to force it open with stones. Brett turned his face to the door. A pistol was fired, Brett fell. I was next to the man shot on my knees. I was on my knees when the bullet passed my bonnet. I heard voices before Brett shot outside saying, "Let them out" several times. Brett never spoke. He kept his keys in his coat pocket. Six women were in the lobby; these had their hands on their faces making a great noise. Thee was a pistol fired through the door before the one that killed Brett. I took the keys from Brett's pocket, because Allen put the pistol to my face and said he would blow my brains out if I did not get the keys. I got them, and gave them through the trap-door. Allen unlocked the door and I was pulled out over Brett's body. I saw him on the road. I ran towards the police and stones were thrown to make us go another way.
     Joseph Partington (a little boy) said- I was in the van, going to the Industrial School, Ardwick. I was sent to the school for taking a shilling from my master. I was locked up in one of the boxes with a man. I was on the right-hand side, the third box from the horses. I remember the van stopping; I heard a pistol shot, and the van immediately stopped. I heard stones being thrown at the door, the sides, and the top of the van. I hears the women tell Brett to go away or else he would be shot. I heard some one ask Brett for the keys, who said he durst not deliver them up. I then heard another pistol go off. There was a ventilator in the box looking into the passage. I saw the women kneeling down and praying. I saw a man with a blue tie (Allen) come into the van. I could see him through the bars. He had a pale face. (Witness identified Allen in the court.) I heard him say "Where's Kelly?" A man in Baxter's box said, "He's here." He was then going to unlock Baxter's box when a man from the other side said, " He's here." Baxter's box was opposite him. I heard him try the keys. He tried two keys, and then a third, which unlocked the door. He then went to the other side, and unlocked another. When they got to the steps another pistol was fired. I saw two handcuffed men come out of the boxes which were unlocked.
     Francis Armstrong said- I was in the lobby of the van on the 18th. Brett was inside. I remember the van stopping. There was a great noise-firing and shouting and breaking in at the top of the van. I was next but one to "Charley," that is Brett. When the trap-door was pushed in, and Charles tried to "keep it to." While trying to do so, they were breaking in the top with large pieces of stone. We cried for him to come away, or he would be killed. He would not come away, but still held the trap-door. He stood up and they fired through. They were firing at both sides of the van outside when Charley was shot. A man asked for the keys, or he said he would blow our brains out. One of the women handed the keys out, and the door was opened, and a man came in and pulled me out by the apron. It was the same man who asked for the keys, and who opened the door. I fell over Brett, and the man told me to get away or he would blow my brains out.
     The court adjourned.
     MANCHESTER, MONDAY- The twenty-one prisoners now charged with the murder of Police Sergeant Brett were brought from Bellevue Prison to the Manchester police court under a military escort. Mr. Robinson Fowler was the presiding magistrate. As on the preceding days, there were a large number of the city justices and several officers of the 8th Hussars and the 57th Regiment on the bench. Mr. Roberts again applied to the bench to have the handcuffs taken off the prisoners. Mr. Fowler declined to permit this on the same ground he assigned on Saturday. After a number of witnesses had been examined whose evidence was in great measure a corroboration of the facts previously published, Mr. Higgin intimated that s there was no evidence against Patrick Kelly, of Leitrim, he would withdraw the charge against him; and this prisoner was accordingly discharged.
     Another scene ensued respecting the handcuffs of the prisoners Allen and Gould, who protested that they were not defended, and had not cross-examined any of the witnesses. Mr. Fowler intimated that they were represented by Mr. Roberts, but Mr. Roberts appeared to repudiate the responsibility. Eventually the magistrate repeated that he could not alter his decision respecting the handcuffs; and shortly afterwards the court adjourned until to-morrow.
     MANCHESTER, TUESDAY- This morning the twenty-two prisoners were escorted as before by a military guard from Albert-street station to the police court, and brought into court handcuffed in couples.
    The first witness was Robert Hunter, a labourer. He said he was present when the policeman was shot. Saw Allen do it. Also saw John Martin, Larkin and Michael Maguire. Martin and Maguire shouted out "Fire!" I saw Larking as he was running, and was there when he was caught.
     Mr. Roberts cross-examined the witness severely as to whether he had not expressed a wish that the Fenians should be hanged. This he denied, but admitted that he had said he would hang Allen for what he saw him do.
    Mr. Roberts- I suppose you think you will hang him. No, I don't.
     Mr. Roberts- That is no doubt a great disappointment to you? I don't think I shall hang him.
     Mr. Roberts-That makes you grin. Emphatically you are a bad one.
    Mr. Fowler- Don't say that, Mr. Roberts. He has given his evidence very fairly.
     Mr. Roberts- I know he has told a lie about hanging. He has expressed his opinion, and I shall express mine.
     Charles Thomas, a plumber, who witnessed the affray, described several persons as taking part in it whom he did not recognise among the prisoners; he recognised Allen as the ringleader.
     Mr. Roberts asked him what was his opinion of Fenianism.
     Witness- I believe they are a lot who would upset the country and murder every one they came near who resisted them. They proved themselves to be so on the 18th of this month.
     Mr. Roberts- I believe this man represents a great deal of the feeling that exists.
     The case for the prosecution closed this evening.

     A Fenian funeral which took place in Limerick last Sunday, gave occasion for a demonstration which seems to have startled the authorities not a little. A gasfitter named Kelly had been arrested last year as a Fenian suspect and only released, like young Stowell, when in a dying state. It was resolved to bury him with honours of a patriot and a martyr to the cause; and in the teeth of the Habeas Corpus suspension the resolve was boldly and fully carried out. There was nothing secret in the movement- it was carried out in broad day, and united in by hundreds at the outset, but by the time the procession reached the graveyard it had been increased to thousands. The heads and trappings of the horses which drew the hearse, as well as the vehicle itself, were decorated with laurels and evergreens; behind came the coffin, containing the remains, borne on the shoulders of six men who each carried green boughs, the coffin itself being also strewn over with wreaths of laurel and other emblematic symbols of nationality. Then followed over 300 young and old men in regular military order, four abreast, nearly every one having beard clips on the chin, such as is worn by "Irish-Americans." The flagways at both sides of the street were thronged.

     RELEASE OF FENIANS- On Thursday three young men, who had been incarcerated for long terms in Mountjoy Prison and Donegal Jail, on suspicion of connexion with the Fenian movement in this country, left by the Inman steamer, City of Baltimore, for New York. Their names are M'Inerny, O'Hara and Murphy.

     The coroner's inquest on the policeman Brett, which had been adjourned pending the investigation in the police-court, was resumed on Tuesday. The verdict returned was "wilful murder" against Allen and others unknown. It is feared or pretended in Manchester that further loss of life may arise from the committal of the prisoners. Threatening letters have been received by several parties who showed a vindictive feeling against them; the prisoners themselves exhibited no sign of despondency on learning the decision of the magistrates to send them for trial. On leaving court they sang in chorus an Irish song, and while passing to the prison gave three cheers for Kelly, Deasy and Ireland. So frightened are the authorities that half a regiment of foot have been quartered within the gaol to help the officials guard two dozen Irishmen!


     Mr. J.E. Kelly, who was convicted of high treason for he affair at Kilcloony, writes: "Milbank, Sept. 24, 1867. DEAR___ It has only this instant been announced to me that I am to be sent to Australia. The notice is so short that I despair of having the pleasure of ever beholding a familiar face on earth again unless- which is beyond the bounds of possibility- that (erasure by prison governor) - some friend take a trip to the antipodes to see me. I have only time to ask you to give my regards to Peter Crowley's sister, and your mother and brothers. Give my love to all. Omit no one. I am in good health, and to Ireland am the same as to you always.         EDWARD.


     Patrick Heybyrne, the barber, who was tried and found guilty of treason felony at the Special Commission, and sentenced to two years' imprisonment with hard labour, was discharged on Monday last from Kilmainham Prison, the term of his sentence having expired.
     Terence Kelly, of Clonskeagh, who was returned for trial on the charge of being one of an armed party who attacked the Constabulary Barracks at Stepaside on the morning of the 6th March, was also discharged, on entering into security to appear and take his trial at any time the Crown may think fit.


     A paper from the sunny South publishes an account of a dinner given by Mr. Herbert , of Muckross, to 300 of his tenantry. The cause of this entertainment, it appears, was to commemorate an auspicious domestic event, the birth of an heir to the Muckross estate. Fraternization of this kind between landlords and tenants are no doubt very agreeable things, and also politic in these auspicious times, when rumours are afloat about Fenian privateers, and strange opinions are in circulation about the rights of those great landed proprietors who hold by confiscation their Irish estates. The entertained are described as "respectable," and this adjective is no doubt used to qualify the fact that the guests dined not in the mansion but in Captain Herbert's stables! The report of the stable banquet does not inform us whether the stock, well-fed and well-housed steeds were turned out to make room for those who submitted to the degradation of dining in horse stalls. We hope never again to hear of a landlord entertaining his tenants in such places as stables-if they are not worthy of a welcome to the dining-hall of the mansion, they should scorn to accept any servile or inferior position.--Dundalk Express.

     DEATH OF DEAN OF CLOYNE- We regret to announce the death of the venerable Dean of Cloyne, the Very Rev. Dr. Russell, P.P., V.G. He expired on Monday at his residence in Cloyne. His death was very sudden. He assisted at a station in the morning and returned to his residence about one o'clock. He was taken ill almost immediately after reaching home, and sank rapidly until two o'clock when he died. Dr. Russell had attained the ripe age of seventy-four years, and had given fifty years of active and useful service in the ministry.--Cork Examiner.
     THE REDEMPTORIST FATHERS AT MULLINGAR- In that town and cathedral was inaugurated by the Redemptorist Fathers on the 29th of September, the Feast of St. Michael, one of those missions for which they are so celebrated. The mission was opened with solemn high mass at which were present in the habit of their order, besides the Most Rev. Dr. Nulty, bishop of the diocese, two other distinguished prelates. One of those was the Most Rev. Dr. Donnolly, the amiable and patriotic Bishop of  Clogher. The other stranger prelate imparted to he inauguration of the mission a solemnity yet more touching. Though clothed in a foreign habit this distinguished bishop was Irish, with an Irish name. It was the Most Rev. Dr. Fennelly, who, having assisted at the canonization in the Eternal City, and celebrated along with the bishops of the whole world, the eighteenth centenary of St. Peter, came to revisit his beloved Ireland on his way to the mission of Madras.    


     On Monday, John Groves was brought up at Bow-street, charged with the murder of M'Donnell, the Life Guardsman. A body of nine mounted police, eight constables and an inspector accompanied the van. Several constables rode inside and outside the vehicle, and two cabs, also crowded with policemen, followed. The constables were all armed with cutlasses. Mr. Poland, instructed by the Treasury, recapitulated the evidence already taken, and asked for a remand, which was granted.
     LONDON, TUESDAY EVENING- M'Donnell the Life Guardsman was buried to-day at the Windsor Cemetery. The whole of his regiment followed. The bands of the 1st and 2nd Life Guards and the Royal Horse Guards were in procession, and played together "The Dead March in Saul."
     Some further arrests of suspected Fenians were made at Manchester on Monday.
     A threatening letter from Hanley, in the Potteries, led to a communication by telegraph with the Staffordshire police, and some arrests at Hanley were the result.



     A search has been made in all the Irish quarters of Oldham for the Fenian Kelly, who was rescued from custody in Manchester on the 18th ult. Although the search was unsuccessful, the authorities had good grounds for proceeding to it, for Kelly has been well known in the town where he had lived, in fact, for some time previous to his apprehension. Letters addressed to a person named Kelly had frequently come to the post-office, and Mr. Andrews, the post-master, has recognized the likeness of the escaped Fenian to be that of the person who called for these letters.
     The Manchester Guardian says: "Yesterday afternoon, a force of police, consisting of about eighty men of the Salford police, and fifty men of the Manchester force, searched Salford for Kelly, Deasey and O'Brien, the latter escaping from Clonmel jail last week. The police had received such information as justified a thorough search; in the house of man named John Daley, they found two portraits of Burke and copies of the Irishman.


     MANCHESTER, FRIDAY- The defence of the men implicated in the recent Fenian rescue was resumed at the police court yesterday. The prisoners are twenty-four in number, Daniel Reddin, a pprehended in Liverpool in Wednesday, being now added to the original batch. The examinations of witnesses lasted all day, and had not yet concluded when the court rose. In every instance the defence consisted in proving an alibi, which in some cases appear to be well grounded. Half a dozen workmen were called, who said that Bryan was at his work with them the whole day. Two or three witnesses said that Scally was working on a tailor's shop-board the whole of the day the outrage occurred, and evidence of a similar kind was given in some of the other cases.
     The prisoner Gould, on being called upon to produce the witnesses, said he wished to make a few remarks.
     Mr. Fowler said he already had his chance, and had not availed himself of it.
     Gould then complained that he had been ironed to assist in his identification.
     Mr. Fowler said they could not re-open that question.
     Gould said- I have an application to make. I want to call the parties who tore my clothes at Bellevue, and also the parties who chained my hands and feet and then left me all night.
    Mr. Fowler- Give me the names of the witnesses.
     Gould- It is the duty of the policemen and officers to get them.
     Mr. Fowler- I have nothing to do with that.
     Gould- This is not fair.
     The prisoner M'Auliffe, separately charged with stabbing a policeman, was brought up and remanded for a week.
     The prisoners were remanded till to-day.
     On Saturday the investigation was resumed and brought to a close. After the examination of a number of witnesses for he defence, the prisoner Gould asked that the police inspector and superintendent should be called.
     Andrew Drysdale, police-inspector, said, in reply to Gould- I was on duty at Albert-street Station when you were arrested. You were chained both at hands and feet.  I do not know that you had them on all night. You had them on the next morning. I think you had them on when the witnesses were called to identify you. I believe all the prisoners were chained.  (Allen- I was not.) I should think the chains would make you remarkable. All the men that were brought in with you were chained hands and feet, and as far as I know, the chains were left on all night.
     John Gee, superintendent of police, was examined by the prisoner Gould and said- I was present at Albert-street Station when you were brought in. You were chained and the chains were left on all night. I was present next morning when the witness identified you. I have no doubt that the chains attracted attention, and that witnesses were more likely to notice you. I think people when they saw you chained would come to the very natural conclusion that you were a very dangerous character and had committed a great offence. You and another man were chained when we brought you to court.
     The prisoner Gould said he wanted the principal warder from the Bellvue Prison to come forward to show why he (Gould) had been submitted to the indignity of being dressed in prison clothes. He submitted that this indignity had been put upon him because he was an American citizen. He was an American citizen- he was proud of being so- but he believed that it was in consequence of this that the indignities had been heaped upon him since his arrest.
     The prisoner said he had some witnesses, but he would not call them at the present time.
   Mr. Roberts said that there had been great difficulty in obtaining witnesses for the defence, but the bench, therefore, was not to suppose that there would not be witnesses called for the defence at their trial.
     Mr. Fowler said- We have now come to the end of this inquiry. All the prisoners have been positively sworn to by the witnesses as having been present and taken an active part in the attack, which has been the subject of this inquiry during the last eight days. Undoubtedly a prima facie case has been established against them. For many of them alibis have been called to prove that they were not at the place. It is a question for a jury, and not for us, to decide. The prisoners are threrefore, committed to take their trial for "Wilful murder."
     Mr. Cottingham applied that some of the prisoners might be admitted to bail.
     Mr. Fowler said any application for bail must be made to the court above.
     Mr. Roberts- Would your worships permit me to make an application with regard to the prisoners generally, and specifically for those for whom witnesses to prove alibis have been called. I believe, as with regard to these alibis, there are some who the prosecution itself, on inquiry into, would at once admit to the truthful- not that they are in reality more truthful than others.
     Mr. Fowler- I am quite sure by the fair spirit which throughout the inquiry has marked the conduct of the prosecution, that if on inquiry they find that any one of the prisoners has been wrongfully committed, that there is no case for the prosecution against them, they will communicate with their solicitor, so as to enable him at once to apply for bail for them. I could not adjourn the case further, and the prisoners are now committed.
     The court then adjourned.
     The prisoners were afterwards all removed to the New Bailey Prison, under the usual military guard.

     On Friday, V.H. Burgess Esq., Hon. Secretary of the Flax Extension Association of Belfast, visited Islandbawn Mills, near this town, for the purpose of inspecting the new breaking and scotching machines lately invented by Mr. Samuel Brindley. After witnessing eh machines working, and securing samples of the flax operated on in his presence, he expressed his approbation and delight at the discovery.--Tipperary Advocate.


     Five of the Orange party have been apprehended for the wanton and barbarous outrage perpetrated on a man named Quinn (convenient to the place where Drum was shot nearly two years ago) on the 27th ult. He was on his way home from Arva fair, when he was followed by a party of eight or eleven, and brutally beaten to such a degree that little if any hopes are entertained of his recovery. Quinn was beaten so barbarously that his skull is broken and a portion of the cerebrium visibly protruding from under the scalp.--Anglo-Celt.

     DEATH OF REV. JOHN KEATING, P.P.- The Rev. John Keating P.P., Crossbeg, departed this life on this day week in the fifty-second year of his age, having laboured for twenty-two years as a pious and zealous priest. On Sunday his remains were removed to Crossbeg; where they were followed by a large number of mourning friends from Wexford and vicinity. On Monday, the high mass and office for the repose of his soul were celebrated in the church of Crossbeg. The ceremonies were presided over by the Most. Rev. Dr. Furlong, Lord Bishop of this diocese, and were attended by about forty clergymen.--Wexford People.

     ORANGE OUTRAGES AT PORTADOWN- Last Saturday night the house of Joseph Brennan and Thomas M'Convill of Portadown were wrecked by the Orange rabble between twelve and one o'clock. Their doors were kicked in and windows smashed with large stones, their lives threatened and ordered to leave or they would be shot the next time.

To the Editor of the Freeman,
17th October 1867

     SIR- You mentioned in the Freeman of yesterday that in consequence of the rise in flour, the bakers of Manchester had advanced the price of the best bread to 9d. for the 4 lb. loaf. The Dublin bakers have been more "smart"- to use an Americanism- for they did this months ago; they afterwards got up to 9 1/2 d., "small by degrees," and since Monday week are charging 10d. for the 4 lb loaf, by no means of the best quality. I firmly believe there are no just grounds for this great advance in the price of the staff of life, for wheat is very little dearer than it was twelve months ago, while bread is higher by at least 20 per cent; but the butchers have been so successful in maintaining their exorbitant charges, I suppose the bakers have thought it right to follow their example.

     We learn from the Boston Pilot of October 5th, that some of the Sisters of Charity at New Orleans have fallen victim to the cholera. Amongst them are two Irish ladies, Sister Cecelia Agnes (O'Leary) and Sister Madeline (Kelly), the former in the fifteenth year of her religious profession and the latter in the third. The same paper contains glowing accounts of receptions given to the American Prelates upon their return home from the late assembly at Rome.

     On Tuesday, the 8th of October instant, at Loretto Convent, Rathfarnham, near Dublin, the interesting ceremony of the reception of Miss Lucy Purcell, the sixth and youngest daughter of the late Thomas Purcell, of Dean-street, merchant, took place. She was received into the institute with several other young ladies of her own age, by the Cardinal Archbishop.




     October 14, at 9 Ranelagh-avenue, Mrs. Wm. Taylor, of a daughter.


     October 10, at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Marlborough-street by the Rev. Nicholas O'Farrell, Thomas Reilly, Esq., Merchant Armagh, to Mary Jane, youngest daughter of James Marlow, Esq., Mary's-abbey.
     October 19 at the residence of the bride's father by the Most Rev. Dr. O'Brien, Lord Bishop of Waterford and Lismore, Patrick Dower Walsh, Esq., J.P., Waterford to Helen, second daughter of Thomas Paul Sherlock, Esq., J.P., county Waterford.

     At his residence, Moyne, county Dublin, Peter Byrne, Esq., aged 71.


     The steamer Wolf, between Belfast and Glasgow on outward passage on Tuesday night, went down in a fog; 300 souls on board.
     Another account says: "A collision in this lough took place last night between the steamer Wolfe, bound from Belfast to Glasgow, and the steamer Prince Arthur, just at quay-bows; much damaged. The Wolfe went down within thirty minutes after the collision in about thirty feet of water."
     BELFAST, WEDNESDAY- It is expected that the ill-fated steamer Wolf will be raised in two or three tides. All the Scotch mails from Ireland were lost, but divers will be sent down in the morning to search for them. No lives have been lost. The Ardrossan steamer which was passing immediately after the collision, went alongside the Wolfe and took off all the passengers, who were unable to save any of their luggage, and brought them safely to Belfast.

     At the Portadown petty sessions on Monday last, a lad named Hamill, one of an Orange drumming party, was awarded two months imprisonment for assaulting a Catholic priest-the Rev. Mr. Weeny-at the door of the Catholic chapel. Father Weeny interceded to have the punishment mitigated, but the magistrates said, however creditable and humane it was for the Rev. Mr. Weeny to make the application, they could not acceded to it, as they felt bound to visit the offence with the higher penalty in their power. If this example were generally followed, there would be an end of Orange or other party disturbances in Ulster.

     On Tuesday, the 8th of October instant, at Loretto Convent, Rathfarnham, county Dublin, the interesting ceremony of the reception of Miss Lucy Purcell, the sixth and youngest daughter of the late Thomas Purcell, of Dean-street, merchant, took place. She was received into the institute with several other young ladies of her own age, by the Cardinal Archbishop.

    THE MANCHESTER FENIANS- On Monday, Redden and Macnamara, who have been under remand for a week, and Brophy and Brennan, who were arrested in Liverpool on Friday, were brought up for examination. No evidence was offered against Macnamara, and he was discharged. The other prisoners were identified as having taken part in the outrage, and were remanded until Wednesday.
     The police at Crewe have for some time been watching certain individuals in that town. They have positive evidence of a body of men having been drilled on the 8th, and the organisers or local "head-centres" were apprehended on Monday afternoon. The names of those apprehended are Bernard Lynagh, clerk at Crewe Works; Daniel Gunning, fitter at Crewe Works; A. Murdock, schoolmaster; and John Hassett, shoemaker. They were arrested one by one and without any disturbance, and immediately sent away to Chester.
     On Monday morning the arrival of the Fleetwood steamer, the whole of the Belfast detectives were on the look-out for three alleged Fenians. Three persons, two named Gilpin (brothers) and one named Burns, were arrested, and taken in custody to the police office. The men were discharged.

     The New York correspondent of the Irishman states, on positive information, that Generals O'Neill and Spear have retired from "active Fenian life" for the present.

     On Sunday evening H.M.S. Research arrived in the roadstead at Galway. Her presence is attributed to the present Fenian panic which prevails in England, and it is supposed that the Admiralty have determined to put the western coast of Ireland in a state of defence.

     Corydon the informer, who appeared so prominently during the Fenian trials, arrived at Kingstown on Sunday morning from England.

     Jasper Kelly, Esq., proprietor of the Tuam Herald, much respected and regretted.

Home Industry-The Idle but highly genteel women of Dublin and its suburbs.

     During the past week we have had a deal of information placed before us on the subject of "Bread home-baked" and its advantages to the family of the producer, and from pens that with some honourable exceptions, would provoke an audible and perhaps not very complimentary iteration of an old aphorism,
               "When rogues fall out,"
                Bread become cheap!
     It is pretty clearly hinted in the argument that perhaps our women want industry. From our knowledge of them, they do not; but their industry is checked by their vanity. Should they be induced to bake their own bread, 'twould require a Thackery to describe their excuses for so doing; he never had a better field. Yet all that will pass away-men cannot "make arrangements with their creditors "every year, and, mothers will feel the necessity of giving any aid they can to support their families, and to shut out every effort on the part of the aggrandizing baker or butcher to take from the already too small means of their home.
     Let, then, the half-genteel portion not be deterred by their habit of "keeping a book"-the homestead's ruin. Little by little they can recover themselves from the system of credit, and by-and-bye enjoy the reward of that industry of which they never should have been ashamed.

     DEATH OF THE HON. Mr. HANCOCK- We regret to announce the death of the Hon. George Hancock through gastric fever. Possessing large investments in Irish railways, he had held the Chairmanship of the Belfast and Northern Counties Railway, and sat as a director upon the board of the Midland Great Western and the Dublin and Wicklow lines. He was also Chairman of the Clearing House, Dublin. He was a brother of Lord Castlemaine.--Irish Times.
    CHARITY SERMON AT MULLAGH- On Sunday last a solemn high mass was celebrated at the church of St. Killian, Mullagh, and immediately afterwards a sermon was preached by the Very Rev. Dean Cogan of Navan, distinguished as an ecclesiologist. A large and zealous congregation showed their appreciation of the eloquence of the preacher by contributing generously towards the purpose for which he made the appeal-that of completing the magnificent church erected under the invocation of St. Killian, by the Rev. John Connaty, this revered and gifted pastor of Mullagh.--Anglo Celt.
     The O'Donohoe has subscribed to the fund which is being raised in Dublin for the defence of Allen and his fellow-prisoners.--Clare Advertiser.
In accordance with the wish of the Lord Bishop of the diocese of Limerick, the Catholic children theretofore attending the Model School have been withdrawn from it by their parents.


     From whatever cause, there is renewed vigilance on the part of the authorities at this port. The detectives seem to keep a sharp look-out for persons of suspicious appearance, and the practice of searching steamers calling at Queenstown is being renewed, but as yet without result. The garrisons of the several forts have, we understand, been recently strengthened, and the Trafalgar is expected to be permanently places on the station in addition to the Mercury, at present doing duty as guardship.--Cork Examiner.


     On the 8th instant the parade and review of the Fenian regiments took place in Jones' Wood, New York. The New York Herald, describing the affair, says:- At ten o'clock in the morning, some 300 strong, the Fenian Brigade mustered in Washington-square, under, the command of General Spear and Colonel Lennox, as staff officers, while the several captains and lieutenants of the various companies were fully represented. Half an hour afterwards the line was formed again, into companies and "marched through the town." The regiment, accompanied by their numerous friends and followers, there took the Third-avenue cars to Jones' Wood, where they were reviewed by General Roberts, the president of the Brotherhood. In their passage through Broadway and the avenue there was not that amount of enthusiasm which used to be common when Fenianism was in the full tide of fever in New York. At Jones' Wood the regiment arrived at half-past one and paraded, after which they were dismissed for a time to enjoy themselves until the real business commenced. At four o'clock the regiment formed in line and went through a number of manoeuvres before President Roberts, who afterwards made a stirring address on the present state and future prospects of Fenians and Fenianism. The festive part of the ceremony was kept up until a late hour, and although there was much hilarity there was little noise or rioting to disturb the harmony of the gathering.


     On Monday next the Special Commission for trying the prisoners charged with the rescue of Kelly and Deasy, and the shooting of Sergeant Brett, will open its proceedings in Manchester. The excited state of public feeling there would suggest the propriety of a change of venue; but we presume any attempt of the kind would be sternly and successfully resisted by the legal advisers of the crown. The disgraceful panic which prevails not only in Manchester, but throughout England generally, is not merely unaccountable, but is in every way unworthy of a great country. The exploit of rescuing Colonel Kelly and Captain Deasy was undoubtedly a daring one, but none of the prisoners may have taken part in it; and even if there be grounds for suspecting the contrary, it is a boasted maxim of British law that every man is to be held innocent until he is proved to be guilty. Have the political prisoners in Manchester been treated in accordance with that maxim? True to that proverb, which unites cowardice and cruelty, the Manchester police endeavoured, by their brutality towards helpless men, to make amends for their own utter worthlessness in the hour of danger. We are no advocates of Fenianism, but we are not insensible to the emotions of humanity to the principles of justice; and we would be dead to every honourable feeling if we remained silent on such an occasion and refrained from recording our emphatic, our indignant protest against the infamous system of torture pursued towards our unhappy fellow countrymen in Manchester. In China, and we suppose, in the dominions of that "drunken old savage"-as described by the English press- the Emperor Theodore of Abyssinia,  persons on being arrested are placed in chains, and kept so during their trials. But shall it be said that these things are done in England-liberty-loving, enlightened England? Has it come to this in the land of parliaments, newspapers, and Bible societies? Can a handful of miserable Fenians so terrify mighty England, with her majestic ironclad, her invincible army, her heroic volunteers? Alas! for proud Albion, such things have happened.
     The people so ready to denounce Italian or Austrian tyranny-so fond of reading eloquent lectures on the rights of mankind to foreign potentates-aye, the British people, looked passively on while deeds of Russian barbarity were being perpetrated in one of their own courts of justice. When Ernest Jones made a vain effort to save the honour of his country, and stigmatised with manly scorn the illegal usage of his unfortunate clients, what support did he receive? The hisses of his auditors, the ridicule of the press. With rare and noble exceptions, the English press not only pre-judged the cases of the Irish prisoners in Manchester- not only clamoured for their blood-ere their trials had begun, but with demon malice sought to rouse the hellish passions of a debauched rabble, and hound them on to the destruction of their unoffending Irish fellow-subjects. Is this English fair-play- Anglo-Saxon pluck?
     To the myrmidons of the law- to the British government, we are aware it would be worse than useless to address ourselves. But we do in all earnestness appeal the English people. Up to the present their conduct has not been what we expect from them; but even now, at the eleventh hour, by securing a fair trial to the Irish political prisoners, they many do something to redeem their past shortcomings. With the last twelve months English patriots of renown, trusted popular leaders in their own nation, have visited our shores. In our poverty and depression we could not do much, but nevertheless we gave them such a reception as entitles us to hope they in return will do what in them lies to avert us from our compatriots the organized injustice of power, as well as the remorseless fury of mob violence.
