THE FENIAN PRISONERS. The commissioners appointed to enquire into the allega- tions of ill treatment of the treason-felony prisoners pub- lished their report on Tuesday afternoon. They find thafs the prisoners have suffered no exceptional hardships, but rather the reverse. Their cells, diet, and labour were of. a better than the ordinary kind. They were never placed among the other convicts except as a punishment. It isf- perhaps to be expected that such men should feel bitteUy humiliation at finding themselves in a prison at all, buf;i the commissioners remark with satisfaction that friendly^ remonstrances seemed to produce a better effect on thar refractory than punishment. Certain incidents of tbek treatment they comment upon with dissatisfaction, and they think that a more complete separation of political from ordinary convicts is desirable.
