DUBLIN, Saturday, March 30.

     On Tuesday Patrick and James Doyle (brothers), John Cassidy, James Morrisson, and George Keegan, were hanged in front of the new county prison, for firing a pistol at Michael Kirwan, near Portarlington, and wounding him in the arm. All, except James Doyle, declared their innocence, and on the scaffold protested that they were not at Kirwan's house at the time specified and that they had not assisted by their presence or counsel the perpetrators of the deed. James Doyle acknowledged that he was of the party, but declared he had never entered the house; he also declared that his 4 fellow-sufferers were innocent, and that they were not present at the attack on Kirwan's house.
