Gibney swore that be remained with Lennon until half past five o'clock the next morning, sleeping in the same bed with him, and that by no possi- ble means could he have left the house during the interval. Some of the witnesses saw the prisoner on the next day. and heard him express himself in terms of disapproval respecting the outrage of the previous evenine. Mr Curran spoke to evidence for the defence, and the Solictor- General replied. Mr Justice Fitzgerald charged the jury, who, after a brief deliberation, acquitted the prisoner. At a subsequent period of the day the Attorney-General Intimated that it was not his intention to proceed against Lennon at the present commission for the murder of Constable Keena. Baron Deasy, in sentencing Lennon on Friday, said that his conduct in preventing his followers from offering violence to the police when in bis power had been con- sidered in estimating the amount of punishment to be inflicted upon him. He was sentenced to penal servitude for fifteen years. The prisoner, in an insolent manner, romarked, I expect to see the Government upset before that.'
