FENIAN PRISONERS. Fenians captured on the Lower Canada min in Montreal. Three of them aie of Hi A 1 fe<rrs » ^'ght of them are tinder 21. One fnr nnmo'fo1100 M'Donald, a Scotchman, has lived Fathnr aj? Water bury, Connecticut, and old1Kl'U £ influence to save this man from USB « his ap+=! Mr consequences of nib acts. Mr. M Gee has replied as follows There are few things you could ask ma tn vlvf-'i. t ,? not cheerfully do for < auld W Svnf ? 1 W°uld M?Driei$rli3 Sing y?UAsk oannofc be done.' Terence M'Donald, like the rest of his comrades leftintw,,? his family duties (if he had any), ment (if he followed one) to come several hundreds of miles to murder our border people-for this FeniaB filibustering was murder, not war. What had Canada or Canadians done to deserve such an assault ? What had the widow of our brave M'Eachern done to Terence M'Donald, that he and his oomrades should leave her with her five fatherless little ones to invoke the wrath of Heaven upon the destroyers of her hus- band? What had our gallant countryman, Ensign Fahey, done to them that he should be crippled for life at their hands ? What did our eight young Cana- dians â the darlings of mothers and Bisters and wives, the flower of our College corpsâdo to de- serve their bloody fate in the Fort Brie affair? The person for whom you* ask my intercession was one of those who sought out our people, on our soil and maimed and slew aa many as they could; and those who sent them have exulted in the exploit. They must take, therefore, the consequences of thsir own I act. I need hardly say to you, who have been in Canada, and who know how free, how orderly, and how religious this people are, that no spirit of vengeance will direct the triats of the accused. M'Donald and all the Fenians will have every justice done to them, publicly, in the broad light of day; but to whatever punishment the law hands him over no word of mine can ever be spoken in mitigationânot even, under these circumstances, if he were my own brother. I grieve that I must deny you, but so it is."
