THE LATE SEIZURE OF ARMS IN CLERKENWELL. In London, an Monday, at the Bow-street Police- court, Thomas Walsh, 38, described as a carpet- planner, was brought up in custody, on remand, before Sir James Ingham, for further examination on the charge of treason-felony, which was substituted last week for the original charge made against him of feloniously dealing with rifles and other arms and ammunition seized by the police, on the night of June 16, in a stable, at 99, St. John's-street road, Clerkenwell. Mr. Morton, a gunmaker, near London-bridge, and the representatives of two other firms which deal in rifles and ammunition testified that from 1875 up to the present time the prisoner had made continuous and extensive purchases of rifles, swords, and ammunition. The examination was adjourned until Tuesday, when other witnesses were examined, amongst whom was Sergeant Gallagher, of the Royal Irish Constabu- lary, who said he came to London in October, 1880, and had been constantly watching the,prisoner. He traced his removal of the cases from the gun dealers' to his warehouses in different parts of London, and then to the railway stations. Gallagher copied the addresses, which were to places in Ireland, had the cases opened, and examined the rifles and ammunition they contained. They were then closed and de- spatched to their destination. Gallagher said his only duty was to report to his superior officer. He was acting under instructions from Dublin Castle. There were several Irish police officers over in London. He was never told to arrest the prisoner, as his action in dealing in firearms was perfectly lawful. The proceedings were adjourned until Wednesday, when several members of the Royal Irish Consta- bulary, who had been in London for the purpose, gave evidence as to watching the prisoner and seeing him book packages to various parts of Ireland, and which, on further scrutiny, proved to be consignments of arms and ammunition to that country. The proceedings were again adjourned.
