On the following Thursday they came into court and noti fied Judge Ncilson that there wits no pn 'liability of an agreement. The Jodge, however, sent them hack to their room, with instructions to disregard the Trice and Loader Affidavits, which had been shown to lie false. On the following day, Friday, July 2, they again sent a note to Jodge Ncilson, stating that it was impossible to agree upon ft verdict, whereupon they were summoned into COnrt. What followed is thus described by the Associated Proas dispatches i At 11 :17 the jury tiled into OOUlt, look ng fto if they had passed ft ftleepli M ni'dit. In reply to the question : "Gen tlemen of the jury, have you agreed upon verdict f" Foreman Carpenter replied: "We have not, your Honor. We regret it very much that we find it impossible to agree." Judge Neilson stftted that he had leanied by ft note from the jury, early this morning, that in their opinion they should be discharged, ftft they could not agree, and some of their number were Buffering in health. He experienced the force of that application very strongly, and had called them in now, at the BBTU est moment, giving to counsel and oth ers nn opportunity of being present.

While he had perfect regard and OOUfi denoe in the opinion of the eleven, and the explainition of the foreman, he thought something WBI due to the twelfth juryman, His Honor had the same thing on his mind yesterday at -1 o'clock, and hft allowed Juryman Taylor to devote his time to bring about an agreement, so far as he could, lie learned from the note that they were unable to agree, and that the disagreement was founded on their inability to decide upon the weight of the testimony and the credi bility of the witnesses, and it appeared to his Honor and every person conver sant with the oftse that it wax impossible for him to help them by any suggestions. Not van In his oharge oonld he And a means of helping them 00 that point. The weight Of the testimony rested with the jury. It was for them to say what witnesses they oonld believe and what witnesses they could not. The cunt had no right to Interfere. He was glad to be BBS mod that the disagreement did not arias from any want of attention on his part, and Qod knew that there were some points 00 which he could do noth ing. The jury was then discharged, and filed out of court. Mrs. Beecher went to the railing and shook hands with each juryman ftft DS passed Thus ended the great Tilt in Beecher scandal suit. The jury at one time were seven for 0 viction aud live f or acquittal, but at the close stood nine to three for l.eecher. It is rumored that TUton will move for ft new trial and a change of venue.

A most" enthusiastic ovation was given to the American team, on their return from DoUymonnt. A grand banquet in their honor was given by the Lord Mayor of Dublin at the Mansion House. A large number of difttingniahed ffuefttft, including the Lord Mayors of London and York, were present. The Irish ritlemen admit the superior ity of tin- Americans throughout the match, and acknowledged that their vic tory was fairly won. The American team used breach-loaders ; the Irish team ft used Rigby'i muzzle loaders. At thft dose of the tiling at nine hun dred yards the defeat ol the Irish was acknowledged, and luncheon WBft taken iu chagrin and gloom. There was out spoken dissatisfaction and symptoms of diftorgftniafttion among the Irish. The crowd, which manifested intense anxiety ftS to the result, had now grown to about 80,000. Every Irish bulkreye was cheered and a disturbance was becomimr imminent. The olice were powerless, ftnd lr. Hamilton addroasod the crowd. Standing in close shooting position the Americana refused to proceed with the tiring until order should be restored. Kvery gentleman on the ground now be came ft policeman, and there was great hustling, and the disorder can hardly be exaggerated. A delay of '.)' minutes resulted, whan partial order was re store d.

The ropes were broken by the Irish, m ar the oloae, Fulton and Bodine not yet bsv- ins finished. Fulton missed tketarffei through the disorder. The crowd, che t 1 ing, rushed across the ground. OSUfti B great oonfnsion, Bodine Quietly took his position for the last shot and the crowd ranged itself along the line of lire, leaving an opening toward the tar gets, but only wide enough to expose two of the targets to the view of the nrer. All control had been lost over them, but Jlodine was still and silent. A puff of suioke and a crack of his rille was heard, and his bullet flattened in tlw bulll eye. A tremendous cheer was given for the Americans by the crowd en masse. The police stood firm around the teams, with the OTOwd on tile outside standing sturdy and ill-humored, but not toward the Americans. Mai. Leech addressed the AJnerioBlM and the surrounding mass, and declared himself beaten, and the Americana the first shots in t'..e universe.
