Dublin, April 13.? 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
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-**
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
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?
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

Webb Btatted av to m ike a motion, and alter BOB*

" When I reached the* deck everything was lu confu?

RIVER AVD HARBOR IMPROVEMENTS.
THE EFFECT OP THE FAILUBB OV COBOBMS TO
|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?
