The Recent Fenian Arrests

THE RECENT FENIAN ARRESTS.

The intelligence concerning the Fenian conspirators has again become of considerable bnhamens From Ireland we learn that Lennon, arrested last week, has been identified as one of the two leaders of the insurgents who last ¥

the police bazracks at Stepaside and and took captive the handful of tioned there. Lennon appears, eee ae @ man of the most desperate character, 1 other scoundrels implicated in the skulked out of the coun been identified by Sergeant Kenny who shot him with & revolver, in Octoboe ee Wellington Quay, Dublin > and he has also been Fecognised as the person who murdered Constable Kenna on the same night. If thesa facts can be proved, of whieh there would appear to be little doubt, Lennon's crimes Temove him out of th range of our fellow feeling and common undan. Standing, and the country may be congratulated on the unearthing of such 9 villain.

other arrest in Glasgow will probably excite eves greater satisfaction than has been created by the apprehension of Lesyow. Every newspaper reader is aware that the actual perpetrator cA the Clerkenwell massacre — the "gentlemanlike" man who drew near to the barrel of gunpowder after it had been dragged to the spot by Desmonp and his cemrades, and who set fire to the fuse by which it was exploded — made his escape at the time, and has, until the last day or two, eluded the vigilance of the police. The raiscreant, however, cam no longer exult in the perplexities of the officers of justice, if what is said regarding him be true. The story of his arrest has a characteristie smack of Hibernian Manners and customs. The "gentlemanlike" mar, who calls himself Barratt, and another Irish " patriot, named O'nztt, were on Tuesday night week, at a Jate hour, enjoying the innocent recreation of tiring pistols on Glasgow Green, when two policemen suddenly came upon them, and too% them in eustudy to the station. The constables do not appear to have attached much interest to the arrest in the first imstance — for, finding nothing upon them when searched at the station, they actually set them at liberty, after obtaining from them the address of the place they were staying at. On returning to the Green, the officers found near the spot where the two men had beer met with and apprehended, a six-chambered revolver, partly loaded and partly discharged. Upon this they went and again arrested the two men. From other matters of suspicion which arose, they got what is equivalent to an English remand for eight days, in order that enquiries regarding the prisoners might be instituted. The London police were communicated with, and further enquiry was made regarding the two men. It then turned out, — if we may believe the state ments made, — that Barratt had long been suspected of complicity in the Clerkenwell atroeity — that it was known the design and mode of proceeding to blow down the prison wall had been concocted in Glasgow — that Barzrarr was known to have disappeared from Glasgow a few days before the explosion — that he was also known te have been consorting with some of the other prisoners before and on the day of the infamous deed — and that he must have got away from. London to Glasgow, secretly, at some subsequent period. On being brought upat Bow Street on Monday the case as affecting the two new prisoners took a singular turn. One witness distinctly identified Barratt as the man who lighted the fuse, while another witness poimted ont O'nvit as the man who fired the barrel, and could 'almost positively swear" that Barratt was present with a box of lncifers. Indeed the tangle of evidence in this point has become woefully perplexing, and has been thus described : —

" Repeatedly the evening papers have electrified the public and increased their sales announcing the 'identification of the man who fired the barrel,' and on each occasion they acted in good faith. Eight prisoners are now in custody — O'keefe, William Desmond, Timothy Desmond, Nicholas English, Jeremiah Allen, Ann Justice, Michael Barrett, and James O Neil — and of these three have been distinetly sworn to as the man who fired the barrel, and a fourth has been less positively identitied. Early in the course of the enquiry O'keefe was spoken to by one of the injured as being like the man, and, last Monday, 1 person named Wells also spoke of him as being, to the best of his belief, one of two men whom he saw leaning over the barrel just before the explosion. The boy Abbott was positive when confronted with William Desmond that he was the man. On Monday the hoy Wheeler is equally sure about Davrrett, while the witness Young swears distinctly that the man who fired the barrel is O'neil. Between Desmond, Barrett, and O'neil there is some small resemblence ; but not at all such as to confuse their identity. The ' wanted' individual is described as having had light coloured whiskers, a brown fashionable overcoat, and a tall hat ; to be of medium height, slim figure, fair complexion, and rather gentlemanly appearance. Desmond has fair whiskers ; but cannot be said to answer to the deseription accurately otherwise. Barrett has light brown beard and moustache. His whiskers may have been cut, is of medium height, and fair complexion, O'neil's whiskers are distinctly reddish. The boy Abbott was beside Young at the time of the explosion, and, though he Brick.

asserted that he recognised Desmond, Young, whose evidence from the first has been of the clearest and most coherent kind, said Destnond, though like to, wae not the man who fired the barrel, nor his accomplice who threw to him the matches,"

It is to be hopect that the difficulties surrounding the affair on this point will disappear when the whole of the witnesses have had an opportunity of seeing the whole of the prisoners. We are told that —

"Abbott will be tested again before next sitting of the Court. The policeman who was looking on at a short distance, and who was blown down by the explosion, will also have a chance of recognising the two prisoners from Glasgow ; and should Young be supported by these witnesses, their evidence, joined to that of the informers, will make the charge against Barrett and O'neil more conclusive. The case against the other prisoners now stands.

thus — English and Timothy Desmond are identified as having brought the barrel down the street towards the prison on a barrow, Allen and the woman Justice accompanying them at some short distance. O'keefe was undoubtedly seen in an adjacent street about the time of the explosion, and there is a probability that his identity and that of O'neil may be confused."

Probably there may be discovered some mode of satisfactorily reconciling these diserepancies. From the bearing of the prisoners themselves, noless than from the positive testimony that has been recorded, most people will conclude that they certainly knew something of the Clerkenwell occurrence, and had something actively to do with it. In view of that conviction, the surprise will be deepened at the infatuation on their part which led to the almost accidental arrest of Barratt and O'nem, on Glasgow Green.

It is singular that the apprehensions in Ireland and Scotland should have been supplemented by the seizure of a Fenian leader in London. On Saturday evening a man named Chancy whom the police have been tracking for some time past, was brought to bay in Tottenham-court Road. The villain, — first throwing the policeman who accosted him down on his back in the street, tled into Bedford Square, — and finding he was pursued, pulled out a revolver, and fired thrice at the constables, who, notwithstanding the long odds against them, courageously kept up the chase, knocked the prisoner down, wrenched from him the deadly weapon, and gave him a taste of the butt End on the head. Fortunately nune of the three shots took effect, though the eseape of the constables was most narrow indeed — the accidental retention of the bullet in the barrel of the pistol by a pin which had got out of place having in all probability saved the life of one of the officers when the weapon was fired within a few inches of his head, and when his whiskers were singed and his hair filled with powder. Thiz arrest is said to nearly close the list of Fenian leaders in this country " wanted" by the officers of justice ; and without leaders or funds, the file : at the conspirators are comparatively We have not, however, completed the catalogue of recent captures, Friday evening, when the mail steamer from America reached Queenstown, the notorious Gzorce Francis Tain stepped out of the vessel, and was forthwith pounced upon by whe Police. re antecedents of Mr. G.

TRAEN seems te. have slavishly adopted e style of Mr. Dickens's well-known durrensos Accoading to the Fustun Pitot, which eroded the oration at considerable length, Mr. — — the duty of the United States was . iota There are thousands in Ereland ready 2 psht wor their native land," said he. In order © help them, America must show her sense of she he The time for talk has passed, there must ' ho more long-winded diplomatic notes, no. more pishy-washy paragraphs in the President's Message, ut a short despatch like this — ' Pay the Alabama claims, or fight.' " Reminding his hearers that Meany, "noble W ARREN," and other Americsns Were m gaol in Ireland, or in convict prisons, De contended that another despatch should follow the foregoing courteous demand, to this effect :- — " Lj. berate Meany, Warren, and the other American citizens, or war to the knife." Waxing warmer Barto Rowggsupsetins the "Seamer the Fonian question en Ce action. Let us settle t us have a sentinel over the rotten monarchies of Europe. We want a station at the door of Europe. Six millions of sh Americans demand it. "Let us offer to buy trelany for a ataboms claims." The orator took vdmiratl " audience upon this impudently admirable proposal, and declared it to be carried unanimously. Therefore he made what the Boston Pilot calls "a terrible attack on England," where OTA, merger was declared tobe culminating. "The , ran hung at Manchester were next euloe ed — their blood being termed the seed of nationity. The orator then spoke of the Clerkenwell massacre, observing — " What if twenty innocent people died! We have killed a million for the negro. Ireland has men enough left. Let them die man by man, so that Ireland is free." The Stumper" concluded by asserting that "he was the starter of the revolution that is sweeping off the Monarchy." ° uch is the man who impudenily demands to be admitted into Ireland, that he may there pursue the policy he openly advecates abroad. It is not at all surprising that the authorities were not disposed to accede to this modest request. He was, accordingly, laid by the heels for a time, and only released on a promise from himself, backed up by assurances from the American Minister, that he will refrain from all connection with Fenians or Fenianism while on British territory ; tn other words, he has been put "on good behavieur," with the knowledge that his actions will be narrowly watched, and that, if caught tripping, he will soon again see the inside of a prison cell. The pretence that he comes over the Atlantic as the peaceful correspondent of a New York paper can deceive nobody. There can be no question that Train has been sent here by the Yankee Fenians, partly for the purpose of encouraging their friends, who are sufficiently depressed; but mainly, if possible, to create difficulties between Lord SranLEY and Mr. Szwaxrp as to the rights and status of American citizens resident in Ireland. The trick is too transparent, however, to serve the turn intended. The Fenians, in sending a man like Train for such a purpose, have only added a fresh illustration of their own ignorance and folly, The fellow is so prodigious and confirmed a charlatan, however, that one is prompted to regret that he should have been indulged with the celebrity that attaches to Government regard and lodgement. Plain enough it is that on the score of nationality he can have no claim for consideration; for no American Jurist will contend that the immunities of citizenship, stretched to their utmost limit, will cover conduct and speech like his. At the same time it is worthy of observation that the justification of his seizure rests on a wholly different basis from that which sustains the apprehension and punishment of the ordinary run of American Fenians. With a short-sighted disregard of all logic, which is certainly characteristic, the latter claim in the same breath to be Yankees and to be Fenians. The one claim is clearly incompatible with the other. Every one of them who joins the Fenian Brotherhood surrenders — taking him on his own principles — all claim to the privileges of American citizenship. it is exactly over again the case of the man who could not eat his cake, and have his cake. Even while they pertinaciously assert their claim to recognition as foreigners, they at the same time show that their allegiance to the nationality they claim is dubious er absurd. Trary, however, is clear of this dilemma. Of course, it is to be expected there will be some noise regarding his arrest and detention. Indeed, it is stated that he has already commenced proceedings against the English Government, or made a claim, laying his damages at the mudest sum of £100,000. In this claim he is too modest. Surely he might have made it a million — for he will have as much chance of getting the one as the other. We have confidence that the result will be a proof, alike to real and pseudo foreigner, that our law is strong enough to reach them when they break it, and tou strong for them to defy it.
