THE FENIAN OUTRAGE IN NEW YORK. PROBABLE RECOVERY OF THE INJURED MAN. [EBOM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] NEW YORK, SATURDAY EVENING. The first hurried reports of the desperate affray in O'Donovan Rossa's office stated that Captain Pheni was killed on the spot. As a matter of fact, Phelan is still alive, and although the wounds in- flicted upon him by Short are of a terrible des- cription it is not at all improbable that he will1 re- cover. There can be little doubt that the murder of Phelan was carefully planned, and that the attack upon him was very sudden and unexpected. Phelan is a resolute man, and would have given a good account of his assailant had he been given anything like a chance.

It is well known! here that all "the parties concerned are connected with the.-anti- English dynamite conspiracy,, and, there is no doubt that the attempted murder was due r,to strong suspicions of Phelan's infidelity. The story told by Phelan to atKansas City news- paper reporter of an attempt to blow;up the steamer Queen is generally regarded as, mere bunkum.
