Full DefnilM or the Deed Grat Ex cltement in and Manlfctttlns; Their Delight Tim Ncutlntent in EiikIhuiI. London,. July 81. Intelligence is just received here that James Carey, the in tbo Phoenix Park murder cases, was shot dead on tho steamship Melrose whilo sho was between Cape Town and I'ort Elizabeth. Tho deed was conimittod ny a (allow passenger named O'Uonuoll. Tho announcement of his assassination c tho wildest excitement here, and a dispatch from Dublin sayB the announcement of tho killing of Carey has caused a fever of excitement there which has not been equaled einoe the Phoenix Park trapedy. Later advices about the killing of James Carey show that ho was shot while landing from the Melroso at Port Elizabeth. his slayer, is iu custody. The Government had taken special and expensive measures to protect Carey. O'Uonncll took passage here by tho steamship Kinmuns j Initio, which left Dartmouth on the utli tor Onpe Town, where sho transfeired her passengers who wcrejdestlncd to Port' Elizabeth, Natal, aud other coast ports, to tho steamship Melroso. The report of the shooting of Caroy caused intense excitement in the west end of London, and in the House of Commons. Caroy was traveling under tho name of Power. His family were with him. Carey embarked at Dartmouth. From Mndeira ho wroto a letter to the authorities, in which ho desoribed hi- voyage, nd said he had shaied in conversations in which the invincibles and the miscreant Carey wero especially denouncod. He said he intended to forget that Ireland ever existed. It appears that O'Donnoll dogged Caroy from London. Both sailed in tho steamer Kin latins Castle. Tho Dally Telegraph says the government have little doubt that Carey was followed from Dublin, l'hey boliove that tho Fenians had taken the inost elaborate measures to prevent his escape. According to tho lntest accounts the murder occurred at sea. Carey was not killed outright, but died shortly after ho was shot. O Donnell surrendered hitnsolf quietly. He wns placed in irons and bunded ovor io the police wucn tho Melrose arrived at Port Elizabeth. Dnu.i.v, July 81. A largo crowd to-night in front of James Caroy'slate residence, cheering loudly because the informer had bcon killed. The Dublin authorities boliove O'Douncll is a man who was implicated three years ago in tho at- empt to blow up the Mausiou House, Lon- .on, nuil who escaped with Coleman to New York. Tho government selected Africa u.x tiio bftfest place lor Ciuey. It is doubt-1 til ulietuer ho know his destination before iHiliti. It was not revealed to the police who look him from Dublin to Loudon. lU'iii.tN, July 80. Tho news of James 'urey it death caused many exhibitions of lelig'ht on the stieets here. Xi:w YtitiK, July 31. Tho feeling in IrNli circles of this city, aroused by the loport of tho shooting of Carey, is ono of I piolound hope that it is true. Theroptut j i.as not yet gained lull credence, and the . fact that :i elicuniMuuiial account of tho ' irrivnl nnil identification of Carer in Montreal hud just preceded the iiuiiouncomuut tiiat hu had beeu Mio, t causes a gicut tinny to bo doiibttut whloh is true. The xtnry of the shooting, however, seems to .'ion1 in favor, as it is argued that Carey Aould never vendue to go to Canada, while lie would be likely to seek safety in tiitiie distant Africa. Every Irishman stioken to expressed his opinion that Caroy riLrhilv deserved death, aud that if Carey is not yet killed it is only a question of lime when he will be. Lead- I iug Irish nationalists say they know t ing about tho matter beyond what they i have read in the papers, and that they aro ignorant whether any orgnulzed offort was made iu Ireland aud England to follow Carey for tho purpose of killing. Several say it is not unlikely that Carey was closely watched and followed, despite the effort of the police, and that his doom was ccrUiii. Terrible Hcenea In tho Mouth Countries. New Yohk, July 81.
