The trial flt Joseph Brady was coutinued this morning. A derk named Ken? nedy testified for ihe defence that ho Bpoks lo Brady, who wis accompanied hy a Kiri, in Domi nick-st., bBtwasn B and 7 p. tn. on May 6 last, the date ot the I'humx Park murders. He recognized Annie Meagher, who tesiiliod yesterday .bal she was with Hrady cn that evening. BS Um girl in question. Ihe witness said he also mel lira.ly on lhe following day. The latter (lochiel ihat tlo. mur? ders would ruin the cause of Ireland. Kennedy's testimony closed tho eaas for the defence. Dr. Webb, i}. C., tha leading counsel lor the pris? oner, pr.'t -tetl against any evidence being allowed in this case which would bear upon thc existence of a conspiracy prior to May 9, even though evidence were excluded by that means which would throw light on a ph.t existing before that (la:e to murder Mr. Burke. The only exception to this principle woultl be thut evidence which concern, d Um words and acts of the prisoner might with propriety and according to Uie rnl-sof evidence Le admitted. In support of his position, Le cited various authorities running from the time of Kdward 1. down to the. present. Ha said: " ihe prisoners were lirst arraigned bafsN this tribunal on the charge of conspiracy; this was follow.,I np by the more serious charge of murder- I contend that such a combination of charges is unprecedented in lue history af criminal cases." The Court lure interposed, reminding Dr. vVobb thai the present indictment was not oue of con? spiracy and murder, but the bingie indictment of mulder. Dr. Webb, co itinuiuj, said: "An indictment foe conspiracy to murder, your Honor, may only be based upon evidence g ing to show that there was a design lo inurdei spine definite person"; Le de? clared that Hie law remilating the evidence of aiders and ahettors in cases of conspiracy could not be linnie to apply ia the present BBBB. Mr. Suiliv tn, in his arguineiit lor the defence, supported thc-** views. Mr. Porter, for the proscenium, replied that ihe evidence given by Kavanagh yesterday against Brady was only of a kink which related to lu*.own doiiius prior to tho muriler. In fae', it simply ehowed that Kavanagh received bis instruct ions as to driving and waiting from Brady. THE ARCIMl NT 1 lt IIIK DKFI NCR. Mr. Adams, lor ide defence, declared that the charge in Kavanagh's evidence yesterday, his suel? len discovery that it was Smith and not Delaney whom he drove to the BBSM of murder with Care**, waa, as any one could eleni ly nee, a sion Bowood d between him ilvav.ni.igl>i nnd Carev. There were other diserepiinci'-H between the evielence fleet hy the informers and tbat ot the ot..cr witBOSBSS bj wtioin tbe counsel for Hie Crown sought to ba- rn up their perjuries. With one solitary exoeplion none of the witnesses for the Crown hal ever set eyes on Hrady betas May 0. Yet they Boa aa* eeited with one accord that tiny w-.re aide to recognize him as a man whom they saw in Pboeuix Park on thai day. If the jury believed these wit? nesses to be mistaken, then th>e eas*, lasted solely on the suspicious evidence given by Um informen. The doubtful character of tLeir evid-uc* wa. t,?, thar to he comuie.ited on. If the jury would st the evidence of tue innocent girl Maaahet against that of the infamous Carey?a liar anel a liv; jib, a liar and a hypocrite and a murkier, too. by profession as well as prac!ice?they would un? doubtedly declare, in accord with th'-* theta, the probabilities aud lhe ev lenee, that Hrady wa- imt guilty. The Court here said tb ..c points raised by Dr. Webb against the introduction of evidence could cot be sustained. Mr. Adams, in cloding for the defence, said: " Heaven forbid Hot I should ever bi arraigned before the tribunal of public opinion ua tlt. defendant Brady has been, in advance of the regular trial; Brady's BBBB h;is been prequel ged ; his guilt has been piesumed in a manner the nn.-t Maa* dalous on record. Let ne>t Um jury Ito le.l away and prevented from doing justice, -because the .rime is awful in its nairne: hm let them consider solely the question, whether or not Bra<ly is guilty. Let them bear iu mind that the chief evidence B| him comes tram persons who spoke to save t iu-ir owd necks; Mi. h evidence must ever BS regarded with gr.-at suspicion." He went on to say that the principals iu the conspiracy had led to the United Kcitisand France before Carey and Kavanagh had liven their testimony in the K:lnia;iihaui examina? tion. THE EVIDENCE AGAINST TTIK PBI80BBB, Mr. Naish, for the Crown, in his repel said: "Th" circumstances of thc crime are not doubled; it is equally conceded that il was the Iruit of a conspiracy aud was uot ii maller of personal revenge. For Ibis reason the Crown has bce-n able to adduce 81 idence of the existence of the conspiracy. The account of the organizatie.il, and itu objects and plans, given by Farrell, wa* midi as c..ubi never have been con? cocted by the most skilful lawyer." Thc ooansel then traced the cou nee ting links of evidence ; it has been Miown tbat Brady was abseut from his work on May 5 aud 6. The book of the timekeeper e-ab li-he.l this tact lt Lad also been proved thal he? matic inquiry for Mr. Hurke ou May 5. 1 his appeared from the undisputed and iinliibit.il.le evidcin ?* ol the lot!g keeper's wife-. Ihe fm t that Kavanagh aim ideel his evidence did not discredit that witness, but proved his veracity and fomiied his previous statements. If Carey and Kavanagh Lad been en? gaged iu concocting evid-uce tLey would both have sworn to the same sfeiry in minor as well as in tnajor details. Mr. Naish took up the evidence treudcred by tin- various witnesses, who testilied lo liavii. ' wen lira.ly lu I'hu'inx I'ark, analyze.1 \t carefully, and maintained that it furnish! el the Hre.ngest possible prool that Hrady was there. He held ihal th. re was an utter failure em the part of Uie defence to establish an alibi for Hrady. Tbe tv.di nee of Little WBI so entirely at variance with the actual facts that il stood alone. TIIK CHAIKiK OK THI1 JllKif. This closed the speeches and Judge O'Hrien began liischarge. Commenting on ihe evidence aeleluccl by the defei.ee lo prove an alibi, heeaid there was noth? ing,so far as could heiliscovt red, to lix the particular evening of May 6 iu the mind af Annie Mcaghc. Lvitlence tending to prove an alibi waa frequently resorted to or invented, especially by women, when Its production would asoist their friends. lieview iua brielly the evidence of Kennedy and Little, he dwelt upon ihe evident desire of the latter to mako the time at which he saw Hrady lit in as being be? fore 9 p. m. The taetliuony of this witness waa open to the same commeut aa waa that of tho other wit Besses for the defence, namely, that he was declaring that to havo occurred on oue day which did actually happen on another day. Peening on to the evidence fiven by the informers, he said that, although tarey had every conceivable motive aud induce? ment to give in his evidence statements cal ciliated to servo his own purpose, he had told a straightforward story and one which did not spare himself. The iury were exhort" I to consider, beiwever, that, if he bael been deie-cted in testifying falsely, the Crown would be' Instilled in procee ding against him the same ne against the other prison? ers. Tho saino general rule was applicable to all the informers. 1 her,'was no evidence to snppoit the suggestion made in bis speech by Ihe tem ucl. Mr. A.ians, thai tho persons present in the park as principals were* now all safe in France or iu the Uaitea Mates. The reveres was the ra*e. The evidence went to show that those- men who were in th" nark with the object of mardo! were litvinci bl es, although some persons who were cognizant of ths plan and were, nm there might not have been members of that brotherhood. In concluding his oharas, he asked the jury to dwell on tho evidence witta that solemn considers! iou of ile points which was due, and lo decide whether or not any reasonable doubt existed as to the guilt of the a-cuaed mau. lu making up their veidict Ihey should set aside all prejudice, all tlio weakness t nat Irequent'v influences the indgment aud biases one's words. He expressed the nope that they would ba Lnfaeneed by Divine inspiration. HOW TIM. VKIlDICT WAS RECEIVED. The jury then retired. They did not remain ont long, for after about forty minutes they sent word that they hid reached an agreement, aud, halag summoned back lo their benches, announced, amid breatblew silence iu tho court? room that Joseph Brady was guilty of murder. When tha verdict waa read a deep bin suppressed murmur went round the coin t-rooin. and Hrady, who ap to this lime bad Leen angularly composed aud Iree Irom emotion, turned ashen pah". Dr. Webb Btatted av to m ike a motion, and alter BOB* plete sih'tice' Lad been les tued,anti before the Judge had pronounced the sentence of death, moved i..r an arrest of juugiuent.

NEWS FROM WASHINGTON RIVER AVD HARBOR IMPROVEMENTS. THE EFFECT OP THE FAILUBB OV COBOBMS TO MAKE APPKOPRIATION9. |BV TELKOBAPH TO THE TKIBl'XE. | Washington, April 13.-In conversation with a Tribune correspondent to-day, tho Chief of Engi? neers said: "The failure of Congress to pass a River and Harbor bill will inevitably entail serious loss npon tbo Government. It cannot lie otherwise. Take the snag-boat service on the Western and Southern rivers, for example. The safety of navi? gation ou those streams depends to a great extent npon thu continuous operations of tho snag-boats at all seasons when practicable. We have a number of very large snag-boats on the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri and other large rivera, and a good many emaller ones on the other streams. All of them must be laid up and their crews discharged ou the 1st of July next. " Then we shall have to discontinue work upon a great many improvements which are in various stages of advancement This will work great lesa and damage to the improvements, and in some caeca probably BBSBtfl in their virtual destruction. In many cases too very expensive plants have been re? quired and purchased with a view to carrying works to completion. These will deteriorate greaily in value while not in use. In general terms it IB imo that a work BMB begun should bc steadily con tiuueel until ita completion, for economical reasons at least. Either that should be rt..ne or thc policy of improving rivers and harbors should be aban? doned altogether." General Wright says that tho appropriations for removing the obstructions in the East Kiver at Hell Gate will be exhausted before June HO, anti that it will therefore be impracticable to use explosives in tbe rock excavations tbeie before the autumn of 1884.
