~8TATE^JF UiKLAHD. RELEASE OF FATHER KELLEHER. In the Dublin Court of Appeal on Saturday judg- ment was delivered in the appeal by the Rev. CUnon ivelieher from a judgment of the Queen's Bench refusing to issue a writ of habeas corpus, directed to the Governor of Kilmainham Prison, to have the rev. gentleman brought into court with a view to his release from custody. Canon Kelleher was committed to prison by Judge Boyd, of the Bankruptcy Court, for contempt in refusing to answer questions respect- ing money lodged under the Plan of Campaign. The Lord Chancellor held that everything had been properly done, and that the appeal should be dis- missed. The Master of the Rolls said he had arrived at a different, conclusion, and proceeded to give his reasons for the opinions he entertained. He said that it was essential that the deposition should be signed, which was not done in tnis case. A witness might be committed for not signing his deposition, which clearly showed that signature wa3 essential. If the deposition were tendered, and the witness refused to sign, he could be committed. That, how- ever, was not the case here. Until called on to sub- scribe it was impossible to say what the witness's objection might be. In this case he held that the warrant failed to incorporate what was essential to make it valid, and that for this reason it was bad. Chief Baron Paites concurred in the judgment of the Master of the Rolls. Lori Justice Fitzgihbon held that the warrant of committal was not sustainable, being irregularly issued. Lord Justice Barry con- curred. The result is that the decision of the Queen's Bench was reverned, and the warrant for Canon Kel- leher's committal to prison was declared bad. The order of the Court was that the decision of the Court below would be reversed, and Canon Kelleher was to be released. The Catholic Archbishop of Dublin at once went to Kilmainham and informed Canon Kelleher of the result of the appeal, and re- mained with hinl till the order for his release was re- ceivod two hours later. He was then driven in the Lord Mayor's carriage to the Imperial Hotel, where, m response to ciUs from the crowd outside, he de- livered a speech from the balcony. Canon Kelleher arrived in Cork on Sunday, accompanied by Mr. T. Harrington, M.P. His arrival was not expected, and therj were only a few persons to meet him. Canon Kelleher arrived at Youghal at half-past four o'clock m the afternooii. He was met outside the town by a large number of people, who took out the horses and drew the carriage into the town, which was gaily de- corated with green boughs, banners, and pictures.
