Enniskillen, July 23.
On Monday the Honourable Baron M'Clelland and the Hon. Justice Mayne, the going justices of Assize for the North West Circuit, arrived in this town. About two o'clock the former opened his Commission in the Crown Court, when the Grand Jury were sworn.
His Lordship addressed the Grand Jury, congratulating them on the peaceable appearance of the country, few charges of considerable importance appearing on the calender [sic], and only one or two of them committed since last Assizes.--He then adverted to the state of the jail, noticing the death of the late Catholic Chaplain, and requiring them to appoint a fit person to the discharge of that office. With respect to the mode of accounting for money presented for public works, his Lordship remarked, that the greatest attention of the Grand Jury was required on this subject, and that no accounting affidavit should pass in future unless the name of each man employed and the days of the month and week, were inserted in the account of the expenditure, and so of the proprietor of each house. When the work was executed by the undertakers, a specific account must also be kept, and those undertakers be bound to keep in repair for one year such part of the roads as they may be employed to make.
In the Civil Court there was very little but fines, and none of the least importance. The Crown Court was principally occupied with trials for offences arising out of private distillation, the source of all the evils in this country. Mr. Brett and Mr. Delany, Revenue Officers, and Henry Benson, whose apprehension was noticed in the Erne Packet of the 28th May were tried for the circumstances therein stated, namely the murder (as it has been termed) of Patrick O'Donnel, the unfortunate man whose life was lost in conveying illicit spirits to the town. The principal evidence produced on the part of the prosecution was Archibald Allingham the owner of the spirits, who had first sworn positive examinations against the prisoner, but afterwards confessed that he did not believe Mr. Delany to be of the party. Throughout the trial the prosecutor's prevarication amounted to nothing short of actual perjury, and the prisoners were of course deservedly acquitted. In his charge to the Jury the learned Judge animadverted in the most pointed terms on the profligacy and mischief at- [Remainder of article illegible: newspage torn.]

At the Waterford Assizes, on Friday se'nnight James Connery, John Corcoran, and John Walsh were indicted for burglariously entering the house of Widow Hickey, at Craige, in that county, one night in May last, and forcibly carrying off Mary Hickey, her daughter. The trial proceeded with all due solemnity, until, in the exmination of the young woman, she was asked whether she was carried off against her consent, when she replied, "Oh ! no, I was willing to go!"--which convulsed the Court with laughter, and stopped the proceedings. The prisoners were acquitted and discharged.
