—■ — — —— r THE FENIÅN TRIALS. The Dublin evening papers of Friday state that the jlify in O'Keefe's case, after being some time in their room, returned into court with a verdict of Guilty on all the counts. The prisoner addressed the Court at great length. Mr. Justice Fitzgerald sentenced the prisoner to be kept in penal servitude for ten years. In the case of Edward Duffy, the prisoner was libe- rated on bail to stand his trial when called upon. Prisoner entered into recognisances—himself in JB500, and two sureties in zC250 each. Duffy is stated to be in an exceedingly precarious state of health. As to the disagreement of the jury in Byrne's case, they having come into court repeatedly, and stated that there was not the slightest possibility of their re- turning a verdict, Mr. Justice Keogh said they had been considering the case for more than five hours and a half, and he could not discharge them unless one of their number was in such a state of health as to render it dangerous for him to remain looked up all night. He would have Mr. Bayley, who complained, examined by a doctor. Dr. Henry Murray proceeded to examine Mr. Bay ley, and being sworn, declared that he should consider it dangerous to his life if he were confined for the night without food. Mr. Justice Keogh then dis- charged the jury, thanking them for the attention they had bestowed on the case. The capture of seven Fenians in Dablin on Thursday evening is reported. Some were trimming bullets at the time of their apprehension, and a printed docu- ment was found on the person of one, entitled-" A Proclamation to the Irish People," breathing the usual sentiments of the Fenians. Several pistols were also found in the house, and in one box about four atone weight of bullets were found artistically packed. The names and ages of the prisoners are as follows:— Terence Byrne, twenty three; Jeremiah O'Neill, eighteen; John O'Neill (father of the preceding), fifty; Joseph Marsden, nineteen; Benjamin Marsden, twenty-two; James Hood, nineteen; and Thomas Dunne, seventeen. They were all brought up for examination at the Capel-street Police-court, and re- manded.
