S. c'ofoe liiit of' paV?n's. Houie, and go up the bdf'een, as if he was going home ;'witness went into Prisooer'it house and vuw the t>-.o horset) in>ule of a partition in the kitchen, and his futlier und two sisteis, but did dot lee the Prisoner; witness went tliere for candle* which Prusonei-'s sister bought at Clourael for her; does not know when the Prisoner wu* takeil; the day that iMr. .Sheehy was interred, gave infurmutiuu to Colonel Greene. Mary Drouohau sworn.-Recollects the night .Mr. Sheehy was murdered; saw him lhal evening near the door of tlir house in wiiich witness lodged ; it belongs to the uncle of the Prisoner; 1t is on the liigh road. Knows the stream ; it is between the boreen and Mr, Sheehy'a house; witnese went after Mr. Sheehy and asked hina for some money ; he bid her siend her husband to hiiB and lie would give him some ; witness was retti/ning when she saw the Prisoiii-r behind the deceased, with a bill-huok or ptoutrli-iron in his hand, with which he stroi:k the deceased bcliind tile head; the deceased stumbled a few yards, and crietfout, " Oh, luurdei?! Csjrthy!" the Prisouer followed and gave him a second blow, by which lie was killed,' aud he fell vyiiliiii two or threejards of the small road ditch; wilnes!ecret in her brea�t ; and tliat, if she ptrsis'fd in concertlmeiit, slie would not receive the iite?i of the Churcfi : this operated so very strongly upon her luind that she went and gave iiiformattoii, Nicholas Droughan, husband of (he last witness, corroborated "the testimony of his wife, as far as he was concerned, and further remarked that he was often awakened out of his sleep iit nightby his wife starting up and crying out, "Oh, inurder ! Car-thy !'' this witness also staled, that he was prevented through fear from giving jtifwrmatinii, and that he never told to any person who murdered Mr. Sheehy, but to one John Egan. John Egan being sworn, staled, he was in the employment of Colonel Greene; that ou the evening of the murder Droughan was with witness receiving payment for work ; that three or lour days alter witness said to Droughan, that it was well for Droughuii that he was not away that evening, he being a stranger, or he would be suspected of the murder. " Oh, no," said Urouglian, " that could not be, for it was M�C>irlliy that murdered Mr, Sheehy." Witness never told Mr.. Greene who miirdereit Mr. Sheehy. This witness protested, in rather a passionate manner, against the insinuation that it was for the sake of getting a share of the reward that he,came forwaf�l to give'his evidence; he never expected nor wouhl he take a shilling of the reward. John_ iVlulcaliy, fisq. sworn.-The morning after the murder witness went to the .;s-, nnd-a'large drop of congealed blood, which apfieared as if it had lalle'o from the weapon or coal of the assassin; witness then trliced the footsteps in the field ; the di-iiance between each step could not be made by a person walking at Ins leisure: witness traced the footsteps to furze in the Prisoner's yard ; the furze was within tweniy yards of the house; witness did not know the Prisoner; never had the least suspicion of hiip. iVlichad Orinond, a cnnistable, stated, that he was the person who took the Prisoner ; witness and Mr. J. Sheehy found' him concealed under a heap of straw iii his uiicle's Iwub� ; had taken him before Jast Assizes' on suspicion of this murder, bu-t, there hieing Jao posjlive evideoce, fie �aw [discharged- The. mily 'witness broilght forward on the part of the Prisoner was one Ellen White. She svmre that three' or four days before Ihe Prisoner was taken fljary Droughan ask^d her to join her in ' |)r05fcuting the Pri�oner, aiid said she would gel a share of the reward. T-liis assertion was slrorgly contradicted on the cross-examtiiatioii of iVjrs. DrougliiO. [Il may not be amiss to remark here that Tliofnas Ryan, mentioned iij the foregoing evidence, was drowned lust Assizes in coming down in a boat from Clonmel.] His Lordship, Buron M'ClelLAND, summed up the evidence to the ,Jury in an able aud eloquent manner^ und passed a very handsome compliment on the praiseworthy conduct of the Rev. Mr. Ciisey, in bringing the nefiirious deed to light. The Jury, after retiring about ten minutes, returned a vrtdict of -Guilty. His Ijordship addre'ssed the Prisoner in a feeling attd iihptessive exhortation ; he commented largely on the heniiiusiiess of the critiie. He concluded by beseeching tlie culprit to employ ll'e few hours left liiin ill repenting of his former iniquities, und Imped It was not loo late for his soul to expect mercy from his God^ whom he had so grievously ofi'endetl, aud not to expect any from that tribunal which now sentenced his body to be hanged, dissected, and anatomised, .afler the expiration of forty-eight hours. The^ Prisoner seemed much aflected, and asked for a long day. His Lordship declared that it was out of his power, as the law made it (wremp-lory on him in such a case to order the Prisoner for execution forty-eight hours after his conviction. Pursuant to sentence, the Prisoner was brougiit out for execution on Thursday, at one o'clock.- Me appeared, perfectly calm and reconciled, but we understand he was much distracted on Wednesday, flowever, through the pious nnd zealous instructions and attention of the Clergyman who attended him, he was brought to a just sense of ihe wickedness of the crime for which he was about to sufler. He willingly confessed his guilt, aud acknowledged the justice of \w sentence. After spending some lime in prayer he ascendsd the scaflold, and with every appearance of sincere contrition and com-pniiction implored the prayers of the numerous spectators who assembled to witness the awful scene, and who with sympathising feelings joined htm in prayer to. Heaven for mercy on his soul.- He died almost without a struggle. After his body had been suspended lor half an hour, it wa.s cut down and given for tlissection. CITV COURT, Wedhfpoay, July 19. John .WoroH, convicted of knowingly receiving stolen t;o"'^'*� sentenced to be whijiped through Ballybricken this day, and to be imprisoned twelve in""ilis. Re.'. James Browne, a Catholic Priest, fined 50i)/. for-marrying two Protestants, had been for a considerable time suspended from clerical functions. AMERICAN PAI^ERS. nfw YORK, june 23.
