Evans, Chairman of the Committee of Ways and
Means, in explanation of the fact that that Com
mittee had reported no provision lor the payment
of the outstanding loan of $5,67-2,000, stated that
it was gratifying to know notwithstanding contra
ry apprehensions, that there would be an excess of
receipis over expenditures of the Government for
the current year. He referred to details showing
that the expenditures for the present year up to
July would be less than 2 1,000, 000 while the re
ceipts would be over $27,000,000, or a surplus of
over $5,000,000. This was the first year, he said
since 1837, in which such a state of things had ex
isted. He would not at this late period detain the
senate by any comments upon tin: stateot things;

Trinity term opened on Wednesday, the 22d
nit., and there was of course, a full attcmlcncc of
the bar, in the expectation that judgment would be
pronounced upon tho motion for a new trial, in the
case of the Queen vs. Daniel O'Connell and oth
ers. 1 owards the close of the day, the court inti
mated that they would give judgment on Friday,
on which day all tho judges concurred in refusing
a new trial giving their reasons seriatim. Sev
eral days were consumed in other motions, and ar
guments, until Thursday, May 30, which wasdefi
nitely fixed as the day for bringing the traversers
(defendants) up for judgment.
The popular excitement, w hich for some time
past seemed to be quiescent, began again to des
play some Of its former vigor, and the prepara
tions made about the courts might be taken as a
criterion of the extent to which it prevailed.
As soon as the doors of the court were thrown
open, at a few minutes past ten, all the seats which
could be placed at the disposition of the bar or the
public were thronged with people. Several ladies
appeared m the galleries.
Mr. U'Uonnell, accompanied by Mr. smith O'Brien
M.P., and Mr. Steele, entered the traversers' bar at
half past ten; and a scene ensued w hich, we be
lieve, is altogether unprecedented in a court of
justice. All the barristers ol the outer bar, with
the exception ol comparatively tew, rose and greet
ed Mr. O'Connell with loud and repeated rounds
of cheers, accompanied with clapping of hands.

At twenty minutes after eleven o'clock the full
Mr. Moore, on behalf of the traversers, moved
the court to fix a day for the sentence to commence,
so late as to enable them to prosecute their writ of
The court refused the motion, under the convic
tion that, as the law stood, they had no power to
grant it. At four o'clock, amid breathless anxiety,
Mr. Justice Burton, in an address during which
he shed tears, passed sentence on the traversers.
Daniel O'Connell To be imprisoned for twelve
calendar months; to pay a fine of 2,000, and to
enter into securities to keep the peace for seven
years bimsell in 5,000 and two sunties of $2,
John O'Connell, John Gray, T. Steele, R. Bar
rett, C. G. Duil'v, and T. M. Hay To be impris
oned tor nine calendar months; to pay a fine ofi
50, and to enter into securities to keep the peaco
for seven years themselves respectively in 1,
000, and two surities of 500 each.
Sentence having been passed, Mr. O'Connell
immediately rose, and said that he wished to re
mind the court that he had made a solemn affida
vit, declaring that he never entered into a conspir
acy with the other traversers, or committed the
crime with which he was charged, lie hail now
only to say it was bis painful conviction that jus
tice had not been done.
A sudden and vociferous cheer from nearly all
parts of the court followed this result; and altho'
it was accompanied by the clapping of hands
among the junior bar, and was two or three times
repeated, the judges did not interfere, although
The traversers immediately surrendered into
the custody of the sheriff.
After a delay of about an hour an a half, w hich
gave time to allay the excited feelings of the peo
ple out of court, as well as for the necessary prep
arations, the traversers were conveyed to the Rich
mond penitentiary, in' the circular road, their fu
ture place of confinement. They proceeded thith
er in in three carriages, attended by a large body
of police. A great many people ran along and
kept up with the carriages, ami there was also a
large assemblage outside of the penitentiary on his
arrival. When Mr. O'Connell stepped out of the
carriage he was greeted with loud cheers, and im
mediately entered the gateway. Within the court
yard a large number of respectable persons, many
of the his most intimate friends, were drnwn up
in two lilies.
They received Mr. O'Connell in silence and un
covered, and. as he walked up between the lines,
ho shook hands with them: his bearing was manly
and undaunted. He thus entered the governor's
house, which, we understand, he and his other fellow-prisoners
will be allowed to occupy. The
penitentiary is u vast pile of building, in an airy
and salubrious part of the suburbs of Dublin. The

PROFESSOR WRIGHT'S LETTERS FROM
London, June 3, 134 4.
Dear Lcaeill: The sad doings in Philadelphia
have a tendency to keep a stray American in Eng
land quite humble. I wish, as I have said before-'
they would banish O'Connell to America instead
of shutting him between the four walls of a Dub
lin penitentiary for a twelvemonth. Tho latter is
what they have at last concluded to do. 1 he hero
of Wateiloo thinks that the best way to keep the
peace of Ireland. But he has now to deal with a
stronger man than Napoleon. The Duke of Wel
lington and the ministers w ho yield to his policy
are sad fools in this matter. O'Connel is quite too
much for them. There was no way to check him
but by concession. His going to prison is a tri
umph. As to the 2000 line, it will not conic out
of O'Connell nor even the Irish; English sympa
thy will probably pour it out spontaneously, and
grow stronger in the act. The sentence of the
court, delivered by poor old Judge Burton, is the
highest possible vindication of O'Connell. It ad
mits that he kept the pence; that through his ad
vice and influence, throughout till the monster
meetings, not the slightest infraction of the law
took place. This it expressly admits, and yet it
condemns him for a conspiracy to intimidate gov
ernment!. As to the conspiracy, it is not pretend
ed tnat there was anything secret about it. it was
merely agreeing publicly and aloud to frighten the
government in a peaceable tvay, by monstrous
demonstrations of unusual force. And the gov
ernment was frightened. Why? Because it knew
that such immense crowds could not be, and w'cre
not called together without cause; it knew they
had so strong reasons to fight that it could not be
lieve in the power of O'Connell to prevent them.
And yet he did prevent them, and prevent them so
etl'eeiunlly that the government's army was rather
a subject of contempt for having nothing to do.
It did inspire these monster crowds, whose wrongs
no language could adequately express, with a
spirit so thoroughly pacific, that tens of thousands
of spies, anxiously on the watch for infractions of
the laws and breaches of the peace, could find none
whatever. So the government, since it could not
deny this, confesses it and puts Mr. O'Connell in
Ministerial Delinquency. The Rev. N.
E. Johnson, pastor of a church in West Bloom

years editor of the "N. Y. Evangelist, has been

of drunkenness visiting the worst parts of the
theatre, and gross lieentiousecss. Tho evidence
being overwhelming, lie pleaded guilty, and was
deposed from the ministry and cut off from the

prison! If they should smother his mighty voice
there, they might soon want him again. More
stupendous madness has not been developed in our
times. For the people that met at Contarff are not
dead yet; their wrongs are not redressed; their
legs and arms are not cut off; they can meet again;
and then if O'Connell is not there to disperse them,
there will be the game of the two Kilkenny cats;
and how much will that benefit cither party? O'
Connell is not the distress of Ireland. What the
government should punish and imprison end anni
hilate, is the distress of Ireland; and it punishes
nun imprisons U'Gonnell and lets the di.-tress go
at large and take cure of itself! Again, 1 ask, was
any thing ever more foolish? This is a strange

he doubtless was sensible that his sentence, while
it would redound to his own infamy, conferred ev
erlasting honor on his victim. Enough to make
almost any body cry !
What a pity it is that the Irish in Philadelphia
could not have profited by the pacific advice of
O'Connell! It is the true way to gain political
lights. By a peaceful demonstration in Ireland,
