I THE DUBLIN PLOT. FURTHER STARTLING DISCLOSURES. The further hearing of the charges of conspiraoy to murder certain Government officials and others was resumed on Saturday at the Court House, Kilmainham adjoining the prison, before Mr Keys, Q.C., and Mr W. Stock, divi"ional magistrates. As the evidence adduced in the first stage of Saturday's proceedings (aly concerned the attempted assassination of Mr Field, only five prisoners were put forward at the the opening of the case. They were Joseph Brady, stonecutter Timothy Kelly, coachbuilder; John Dwyer, tailor Joseph Hanlan, carpenter and Michael Kavanagh, carman. The last named had been arrested since the previous hearing of the casg, and, together with his four fellow-prisoners, was no, charged with conspiracy to murder, and, in pursuance of that conspiracy, that on the 27th November they did feloniously assault one Denis Field; with intent to murder him." Mr Murphy, Q.C. and Mr Peter O'Brien, Q.C., prosecuted. The first witness called was a girl named Alice Carroll, about 17 years of age, who gave her evidence in the olearest manner, and, under the severe cross- examination to which she was subjected, maintained perfect self-possession. She deposed that on the evening of the 27th of November she was going down Hardwick-street soon after six o'clock, when she saw an outside car, with three passengers and a driver stop at the corner. Men got down, and she recognised two of them as the prisoners Brady and Kelly. She saw Brady attack Mr Field about two doors from the latter's house with a sword-cane or dagger. Brady knocked Mr Field down. Another man was standing by, and Mr Field was stabbed two or three times, and when he turned on the ground he was stabbed again, but witness could not say whether Brady or the other man stabbed him. She saw the driver of the car, and identified the prisoner, Myles Kavanagh, as the man. In cross-examination by Mr Killeen, witness said she did not think that the weapon she saw was a fish knife. A boy, named Michael Farrell, was next sworn, and deposed that as he was passingl along Hardwick- street about a quarter past six, he saw three men, two of them being the prisoners Kelly and Brady. He saw Kavanagh standing near a oar in Hardwick- street. William Joseph Connolly, solicitor's clerk, proved hearing cries as he was proceeding up Frederiek-ptreet He saw a man sitting on the flags, and a man having a bright instrument under his coat passed witness, and mounted the car standing near, together with a man carrying a revolver. The car then drove away. James Egan, a provision dealer, proved picking up a hat (produoed) at the scene. The remainder of the prisoners-16 in number— were now put forward, and William Lamie, an in- former, was examined. He said he joined the Fenian Brotherhood in 1867, but left Dublin, returning after several years in Liverpool. He had since attended meetings of the Irish Brotherhood at various places, and witness named several of the prisoners who had been present with him. He remembered a meeting in Aungier-street, when some discussion arose about Joe Poole. At a meeting in December last, at which Joe Mullett was present, at Farrell's public-house in Capel-street, there was a conversation about Delaney, when it was said that if a fresh vigilance" was organised, Mr Mallon, detective superintendent, who was endeavouring to put some of them up for perjury would be dealt with. Evidence of finding arms at Whelan's house was adduced, and on the application of the Crown the investigation was adjourned for a week Mr Murphy intimating that by that time they hoped to connect some of the prisoners with the Phoenix Park murder The prisoners were then formally remanded till next week. Messrs Healy, Davitt, and Quinn Ihave been served with notices that unless within a week they enter into recognizances each in a sum of 91,000 to be of good behaviour for twelve months, they will be committed to Kilaiainham prison for six months.
