What the Catholic Priest, Rev.
Mr. McMahon, said on his Conviction
Tbo following wore tho remarks
made by thellev. Mr.McMah0ii,4n be
ing asked why sentence of death should
not bo pronounced upon him : - i
Hi liordahip John McMahonJuive
you any thing to say why tho sentence
of tho court should not now bo passed
upon you for tho felony of which you
hnvo been convicted?
Tho prisoner (wherae roico wua firBt
low and broken, but afterward firmer
nnd more distinct) addressed tho court
ns follow :
According to tho testimony given
against Ino, if it was true, I would have
nothing to 6ay, my Lord ; but I do de
clare here that I am unjustly charged
and convicted. I am not guilty. At
tho timo that Milligan uml Sullivan
swear that 1 was at Tort Erie, before
vou and tiod, nnd nil present, I was in
Buffalo. I w as honeitlv oroincr on mv
journey to Montreal ; and. I am not
jiuilty. I beg your Lordship's pardon
if I say any thing that is not pleas
nntorngrecublo. Ifl wasguilty I would
submit; but if you executo ino, my
blood w ill cr" to Heaven for vengeance
upon those that is tho causo of my
death innoccntlv. I wa going after
my brother's affairs to Montreal. I loft
my own house at half past soven o'clock
on Wednesday, tho 30lh of May last,
to go on that journey. I took the rail
road car ut eight o'clock, went io bed,
camo ou my way straight, and arrived
at ten o'clock on Friday night, tho
31st of May, In Buffalo. I went to tho
Franklin House, stopped there, had a
bed and breakfast, went to visit my
friends, Maurico Vaughan and his
brother, Ihtn. Vaughan. It was the
moment of nine o'clock when I crossed
over on the ferryboat on my way to
Montreal. 1 was looking for tho 'rail
road office to get ft ticket, but what
with one excitement nnd (hero his
words were inaudible) so I am inno
cent, my Lord. I cannot plead guilty.
I am innocent. (The prisoner, whose
language wo have given as uttered,
spoke with a strong Irish "brogue,"
and showed hijisvlf by his language to
be an illiterate man.)
Marriage of the Living and Dead.
A correspondent of tho Bombay C!a
rette writes : Tho other day I wit
nessed a sceno of a really shocking na
ture, the Trtnciiald boiutr aJiviiiff wo
man and a dead mun, of the Commat-
too caste, ino relation that nal exis
ted between the living and tho dead
was of a left-handed nature. They
hud lived together for man y long years,
us man and wife, when, niter Buttering
from a febrile attack for four short
days, tLc man died. Agreeably to tho
peculiar custom of their , caste, it was
imperative, ero the corpso could be re
moved for interment, that the sacred
rite of matrimony should be performed.
Tho sad intelligence soon communica
ted to tho neighboring residents, und
tho loud and vehement hamering of
tom-toms had tho desired electric ef
fect of collecting a host of friends and
acquaintances and a fluctuating stream
of passers-by to the s-pot. A gcroo, or
priest, being summoned, und tho no
cessary preparations for tho celebra
tion of tho nuptials being hurriedly
completed, tho ceremony commenced.
The inanimate "form divine" was pla
ced against the outer wall of the ve
randah of tho houso iu a sitting pos
taro, uttircd like a bridegroom, and tho
Lands and face wero besmeared with
liquid tumeric. Tho woman also was
clothed like ft bride, and addorncd
with tho usual tinsel ornaments over
the faeo, which, as well as the arms
und tho drapory, were daubed over
with yellow. She Bat opposite the
dead, now addressing it light and un
meaning words as is customarily
done upon such occasions and then
chewing bits of dry cocoanut and
eauirting it on tho face. And thus the
ceremony proceeded, and continued
for three or four hours. At length, as
tho tmn was nearing the horizon, the
nuptial ceremony wag brought to i
close, and the preparation for the in
torment conuueuceti. ino Ueiiu was
divoted of its bridulattire.then bathed
and finally laid upon a bier and cover
ed with a cloth of silk. Tho faeo was
next rubbed over with eomo red pow
der, and in tho mouth was placed betel-leaves.
The widowed Wide then
looked her last at the surrounded fornv
of him whom never more sho would
heboid, when, amid agonizing shrieks
nnd deafening tom-toming, tho bier
was lifted up aud the funeral cor t ego
proceeded in the direction of Sion; one
man a near relative of the deceased,
1 presume preceded tho corpso, th,rov
lug at intervals a handful of pies to tho
light and to tho left, which wero bo-
iuir enirerlv uieked un bv a troop of
"When tho great llicheliou died, his
head was Beperatod from, hiubotiy and
preserved. After several months of
reHcarch, the head bus ut length been
