Chief Justice Blackbu?nb?

Chief Justice Blackburnf..?We shall consider the ttre. The most profound silenoe and the most intense Mxiety then prevailed in oourt. in expectation of the arrival of the 41 traitors," all eyes being turned to the deck to observe their first appearanoe. Tbetr manner Sftd bearing were prtoUely what they had been all tferough? firm, manly, and unflinching. Even at that solemn aDd trvad'ul moment, their oourage, coolness, or self-possession never once left them. ADDRESSES OF THE PRISONERS. After the lapse of about ten minute*, Messrs. Met,- j O'Donohoe. and M'Manus, were placed at the fear, and tbeolerk of the crown addressed them in the usual form, recapitulating the terms of the Indictment, and then said?*'Hare you anything to say why sentence of death and execution should not be passed jionyou according to law ?" SPBKCH OF M'.MANT'S. Mr. M'Manus then, in a firm and distinct tone, Mid?My lords, I trust 1 am enough of a Christian and > enongh of a man. to understand the awful responsibility of the question that has been put to me. My lord*, standiogon this my native soil?standing in an Irish court of justice, and before the Irish nation, I bare much to say why sentence of death, or the sentence of the law, should not be passed upon me. But. mj lords, on entering this oourt. I placed my life?and. wbat is of much more importance to me. my honorin the hands of two advocates ; and, my lords, if I bad ten thousand uvea, ana ten inounanu uonors, i would be content to place them under tbe watchful and tbe glorious genius of the one, and the high legal ability of tbe other?My lords. I ana content. In that regard I have nothing to say. But I have a word to ay, whloh no advocate, however anxious, can utter forme. 1 have thin to ray. my lords: thai whatever part I may have taken through any struggle for my onntry's Independence?whatever part I may have acted in that short career, I stand before your lordships now with a free heart, and with a light oonsei?nce. ready to abide the issue of your sentence.? And now. my lords, perhaps this is the Attest time that I might put one sentiment on record, and it la this :?Standing as I do. between this dock and the oaffold, It mty be now, or to morrow, or it may be never ; bnt whatever tbe result may be, I have this sentiment to put on record?tbat in any part I have token, 1 have not been actuated by animosity to Englishmen; for I have spent some of the happiest and most prosperous days of my life there, and in no part of my career have I been actuated by enmity to Englishmen, however muoh ,1 may have felt the injustice of Kngllsh rale in this island. My lords, I have nothing more to say. It Is not for having loved Kngland less, but for having loved Ireland more, that I itand now before you. Mr. O'Donohoe was the next toaddreaa the court Which he did with muoh energy and distinctness. iMrmlulon to read the observation* he Intended to make, and the ceurt offering no objection, It* read from a manuscript what fjllows:? BPKKCH OF o'DOXOHOE. * My Lords?I beg to say that the Attorney and Solicitor General have conducted the case against me Jkirly, but strietly, and I And no feult with them, or With the evidence given against me. so far ae It was acted on bj the jury. My Lords, I do oomplain, that Id such a county the jurors summoned to try me, a atranger, for a political offence, were ixelustvely poll" ical opponents; and with such a panel. I regret that your lordships did not, ts my counsel requested, allow my jury to have been called from those who had not served, or been rejected, on a former trial. My jury, thus selected, could not be supposed to overcome all bias, and I believe they formed a moat mistaken verdict. "Mr. Justice Moore, in his dirsotion, told the jury that if I assisted Mr O'Brien, whilst engaged In a treasonable design. 1 was guilty of treason, although I j Blight not kDOW 01 nil IDWBi; auu iruu meir rmuw nendation. It appears that they found me guilty on that direction. To one unlearned in the law, and supposing that treason depended on !nt?ntion, it feema contrary to common sense that I can partioirite in a treasonable design, of the existence of which am ignorant. I do not, however, presume to dispute the law aa your lordehip has stated it, but ni earthly Judge la infallible; and.as the doctrine is so startling, and one stamped with the authority of Mr. Moore a high oonstituti >nal character, that would form a precedent dangerous to the lives and liberties of the best Ben, I humbly request your lordships to reserve the point for the consideration of the judges. If your lordrhlp be in error, that error ought to be corrected. If not, it will be a protection to every one to know that the law so laid down has been confirmed It is not fit on this solemn occasion to defend my pinions or conduct. I will, therefore, only say, that those opinions hare always been tolerant, sincere and eonsistent. 1 am grateful to my eminent counsel, Mr. Butt, for till eloquent and truly able defence ; the more so because tbat defence was generously given withaut fee or reward: and given, too. to his political antagonist I 1 cannot express my admiration for the ingenuity and great talent shown by my junior counsel?Mr. Francis Meagher, and hi* leal in my defence. 1 also beg to thank my solicitor. Mr. Laffan, for the ability with whloh he conducted my case, aod the great exnrUonn made by him on my behalf. I thank your lordship for this patient hearing. Mr. Meagher then proceeded to address the eourt. He was drested in his usual atyle, appeared in excellent health, and bore himself through the trying ordeal with fortitude and manly di<nlty. Expectation was raided to the highest point, and a breathless anxiety seemed to pervade all in court to hear the sentiments of the young patriot on this solemn occasion? the last which his countrymen Would hear from his llpi. He fpoke as follows SPKEC'H OF MKAOIIER. Mt Lords?It is my intention to say a few words only. I desire that the last act of a proceeding whUh has occupied so much of the public time, should be of short duration. Nor hare I the indelicate wish to elose the dreary ceremony of a state prosecution with a ain display of words. Did I fear that hereafter, when I shall be no more, the country i have tried to serve would think ill ef me, 1 might indeed avail myself of tnu POlHDin IDOIDHDl 111 riaulCiHU UlJ reuuunmn BUM my conduct Out I have no such fear. The country will Judge of thou* sentiments and that coniuctina light far different from that In which the jury by which I have been confided have viewed them: and bv the country, the pent..no* which ynu, my Lords, are about to pronounce, will be remembered only an the revere and solemn attestation of my reotltude and truth. Whatever be the language in which that aentenee be spoken, I know that my fate will meet with sympathy, and that my memory will be konrred. In speaking thus, accuse me n t, my lord*, of an indecorou) presumption. To the efforts I have made In ajustand noble cause. I ascribe no vain ImImportance?nor do I elaim for those efforts any high reward But It so happens, and it will ever h*ppem so, that those who have triel to serve their ottfintry. no matter how weak the eff>rt m?y have b?e*. are sure to receive the thank* and blesnings of Its people.

THE SENTENCE. Chief Justice Dohebtv proceeded, amidst the moat profound and solamn alienee, to pronounce the dread sentence of the law. He said?Prisoners at the bar, Terence Bellew M'Manus, Patrick O'Donohoe, and Tbomu Francis Meagher, after deepconsideratian before entering into this oourt, it was my intention la tbe performance of the very painful doty that devolve* upon me. not to have prolonged your stay at that bar by any lengthened observations. You, each and all of yon, itand there, having been convicted by the ver . diet of three successive juries, of the crime of high treason?a urime of the greatest enormity known to tbe law ; and I feel bound to ray this, that it is tbe deliberate. dispassionate, and calm opinion of this oourt, tbat the verdiots which were found by those juries, and the verdict which was foand by a firmer jury, could not have been other than they were?that n> honest, fair, impartial, conscientious jury, attending striolly to their oaths, and listening to the evidence that was produced in this oourt In the oourse of theie unusually protracted trials, oould have come to any other conclusion than that whioh they have diao. j They bave prooouncitd y?u. one and all. guilty of tbe crime of high treason. That crime consists in having ! levied war In this oounty within the last week of tbe month of July?having levied war for treasonable puc, poses; and that you and eaoh of you. more or less, par ticipatvd in, excited to. prepared far. and were your selves some of you aotively engaged In the furthers of that project. In order to constitute the crlu i I high treason by tbe levying of war. it is no ln^rudi-at that the means shall be proportioned to the ? ud nought I v" anil thut rhrtPtt u ruM An a 1 prospect of succej. Parties who h a en^a^vi in such transactions, become responsible f thny have array**, assembled, collected, drilled, o ri ared. those who mre by force to endeavor to ac ' the common object that is in view. * * * * I have merely to exhort each o reflect on the awful situation ia which you . at stand, and prepare for the dreadful fat udi over you. We have not failed to Bend, a duty, to the Lerd Lieutenant the recommeuiu.,.. ,th which the juries in your respective cases have acoimpinled the verdlcta that have been found against you. But you must be well aware that it is with the exeoutive government, and with the exeoutlve government alone, that tbe fate of theBe recommendation rests. And we, in the discharge of onr moU anx ious, irksome, and painful duty, have now to pronounce upon you, one and each, the most awful sentence of the law. [Here their lordships assumed their black caps, which caused a shudder of horror to pervade the crowded oourt.]?That sentence Is, that you Terenee Bellew M'Manus, yon Patrlok O Donohoe, and you Thomas Kraneis Me'gher, be taken hence to the place from whenoe you came, and be thence drawn on a hurdle to the alace of exeontton ; that eaoh of you be there hanged by the neck until you are dead, and that afterwards the head of eaoh of you shall be severed from tbe body, and the body of each divided into four quarters, to be disposed of a? her Majesty may think fit. And may Almighty (K>d hive meroy upon Jour souls ! Their lordships then retired from the enrh At the conclusion of the preceding sentenoe.the pub He feeling, which had riaen to an Intense state of excitement. during its delivery and that of Mr. Meagher'e eloquent addreaa. jpanifeated itself by a Jt>w. subdued, and thrilling murmur of grief. All aeemed affected with aympatby and admiration for the young patriot, and his two brave companions - whom the severity of the law had oondemned to so barbarous a fate ; and many were the tears, which on that solemn oeoasion, attested on the part of political opponents, equally with private friends, admiration for thn sincerity which had prompted the aotions of the acoused, and the fortitude which upheld them during the dreadful ordeal through which they had passed. The patriot " convicts" alone were nnmoved. Tli-y hoard the sentenoe with flrmnejs and composure. They quailed not before the judgment of the court, nor trembled at the dreadful doom which assigned tbnm to theaeaffold. Mr. Meagher, in whose features glowed the proud consciousness that before the high tribunal which adjudged him to death he had sufficiently vindicated his motives, rtood at the bar in a manly but respectful attitude, and gazed rou nd the orowded court witn perfect calmness and compojure. On his rigat Terence Bellew M'.\Unus, whose simple, touohiug words on that memorable occasion, rushing from the heart, 10 strikingly exemplify his mnnly spirit and true sincerity of nature, stood ereet. unbending, and undaunted ; whilst Mr. O'Donohoe. with equal courage and equal fortitude, was pr-ptred to meet the wont fate which might be in reserve for him. Never, in this unhappy land, where the courage of Tone, and F.m mft.ibd b iizgeraia. n%? cuaueugcu kuo aumiKivivu Ui mankind was there greater heroism than that displayed by these devoted men. Never, in the world's history, wan an untimely and cruel fate (tor suoh It is, ?T?n though It be mitigated from death.) borne with greater fortitude or more stoical resignation, j Mr. Meagher and bis companions cordially saluted their counsel, who appeared much affected by the solemnity of the scene ; and having shaken hauls with some friends who crowded round the ilock. they retired from the eourt in the same frarless and intrepid rpirit with which they had entered It. Before the judges left Clonmel, they intimate! to the clerk of the crown that the rule of court respecting the two men, O'Donnell and Shea, who bad been committed during Mr. Smith O'Brien's trial for refilling to give evidence against that gentleman.wa<. that they should be each imprisoned for twelve calender months and kept to hard labor, and at the expiration of their trrm ot imprisonment pay dnes to htr majesty of X10 each. On Monday last a detachment of 4th Light Dra. " >h. mith goons. neaaeu oy tapt. um.u, regiment of foot, commanded by Lieutenant Skinner. 40 men in mil, left Oort. for the purpose of oolleoting poor rate* In the parish of Klnvarra, eight miles from Uort. There were aUo 60 of the police fjroe. commanded by T. MeMahon. 8. I., anj J Davy*, sttpendiary magistrate. On panting through the Tillage of Klnrarra. the cars that were to oonvey away the oorn, being at the rear of the military, were laid hinds on suddenly by the people there, who upset the horses and the car*, but assistance was immediately rendered by the force at hand. They went on for the distance of a mile and a half, until they came to the district they I were to distrain on. when a barricade ob)truated thxir passage. They then got on another road lea liog to the same district, when a barricade partly formed, met their Tiew. protected by about .'!00men and women. They refused to let the armed for<:? pass, and said they would rather sacrifice their ll?es than permit it. Thny were told resistance would be nseles?; but they persisted torn tiutain their ground.

Th?y then commenced a guerilla warfura from behind the w?l|g. and peverely Injured dome of the police and military. One of the police got a most severe cut in the face, and Mr. Davys and htH horse were struck two or three time* The notice drove the people for a quarter of a mile into the fields, but th?y w?r? a' certain to be back again to the scene of action. Mr. Davys did not with to shad blood by ordering the military or police to Ore. and it being lata in the day. he ordered them to tnrn round and proceed home.

But, first, yon will say, ' How came yon there ?'' and I will tell you. I came to Ire> land, the land of my father*. on business and pleasure; and, arriving at a time when the natives were on the ! eve of an outbreak for liberty. J was immediately sua. ! pected of - having steamed it over as the Envoy Extraordinary of the American Sympathisers for Ireland;" placed under a system of espionage by the Lord Lieutenant'* army of detectives, and, finally, arreatel at my hotel, in the dead of night, by three armed pollcemen, who searched my person, olothing, bed and chamber utensila, expecting, evidently, to find several of Colt'* explosive projectiles, and much treasonable cor respondence; but they were mistaken. The only ptper 1 had was a letter from my wife, with a look of her hair; vhla was carried off in triumph by theae minions, and I hope its p?rusal was the means of Improving the Lord Lieutenant's morals. 1 was taken to the castle, strongly guarded, placcd in a small, strong room for a ftw momenta, with a guard of four liily-livered ohaps, armed with platola and aworda, an j I oould n it avoid milling at the fear they dlaplayed, but I sjon learned the oause. I was supposed to be an American Gentnl returned triumphantly from Mexico, an t cojh over to lead cohorts of pikes and shillelaghs through the Irish boya to glory. After an awful pause of afe * m>ments. a red faced, sleek looking detective, known as Colonel Browne, brother to the late Mrs Heman*. put hi* knobby red snout to the edge of the door, and gruffly pronounced my name, saying.

The policemen had previously refused to show ine tbelr warrant, and the pot-valiant Colonel Browne wjuld not exhibit to me tho ' informations'' upon whioh 1 wan arrested. They k pi all my baggage for a week. I called for the intervention of .vlr. Uu^h Keenaa. the I"tilted States Consul of Dublin. II- was ill. but immediately commenced In my b?half. Application was made to Mr. Bancroft, the American Minister at the Court of St James.

This week has been signalised by th* termination of the discussion In the Assembly on tho projuat of the new constitution, which took place on Monday even iDg. According to a resolution previously taken, it will be necegsa>y that the projeot be revised, and the revision cannot commence for five days after the olcse of the dlsoussion, thftt Is to fay, until Saturday oust. This revision, however, will be soarcely more than ft formality, ftnd will not occupy more than a day or twj. We, therefore, expect that the constitution will be declared about the beginning of next week. Many persons have been surprised at the apparent indifference with whloh this great measure hat been allowed to yasc. It bat undergone more or less discussion for nearly sixty day* in the Yatioaal Assembly aod, with a few exception* thege discussions have been received with an exiraerdioary degree of apathy and ooldness by tbe public. This ban undoubtedly arisen partly fiom the liesbness of every body's memory who has read tbe history of Franoe mnca 1789. and waioh supplies so many constitutions wuioh have been suocesMVely fabiicaied, and successively thrown aiide, with little reverence for tieaiselves or their makers; but It Is also due to the absence of that living faith in the stability of the republic, which constitutes ho remarkable a feature in tne population ef tbe United States. Uo where you will in America, from the border* of Maine to the shores of tbe Oulf of Mexico, you will find but one sentiment of universal enthusiasm in favor ot tbe republic. Vou will Hod it is termed wbigs and and democrats, but tbe wne not a whit the more enthiitiasuo republican than tbe other. Not so la Kranoe. Tbe provinces are generally t&vorable to monarchy ; some inclining to one, and some to another pretender. The great manufacturing towns are democratic: the capital is much divided. Tbe population of the faubourgs are. to a great extent, republican, but not altogether commingled with the monarchical element. Buonapartlsm flourishes In the banlieud. ng well as there, lee* bo in other parts of the capital. Orleaalstn. also, has its party, as well in legitimism. In short. us t have often already told you,if the country werep jlied, republicanism. I he triumphant would be fiunl in a must insignificant minority Bat if this minority be nail in nuu.ber. it is great in energy; it is also united and fearless, and nothing oan be wore certain than that any attempt at prejent to return to m?narciy wonM involve oirij war. Nv>w, bom?t h!,i l,i 4**p tbe mejority of France may be towards republicanism, it is Infinitely less disposed towards aiviL war. It submits, therefore, to what it bdlleves to be the lesser of the two evils, and it submits In the tacit hope that some event may bring about hereafter the consummation desired by the m<jority, with >ut tbe calamities whioh would attend any attempt at present at tbe establishment of a constitutional monarchy. Nevertheless, it may happen, that If the republic Is enabled to hold its ground lor a certain time if confidence should meanwhile be re-established and commerce revive, if the fundi should recover thecnislvei, if foreigners should rovloit Paris, and the capital should resume its g?y aspect, which bai characterized it of yore, why, then I tulolt it probible that the m ajority may be disposed to be reconciled to the repuol.e, and may even give their cordial support to its permanent establishment. But in the present st-tteof things, to suppose this, would ba t? suppo-te hurnia nature stripped of thei-e qualities whioh have always, and everywhere, characterized it Tne people who possess anything, have seen their property rapidly diminish, and in tome cases altogether vanish; commerce is prostrated. If you want a proof of this. b ivond the visible condliisnot Paris, search the ojrt folio of the Bank of K ranee. The average of ic? we?k1; discounts last year, was nearly INj.uiW.OOO francs; its discounts last week were under seventy mtllloa-i.

The five por cents.-which before the revolution (iuotuatfd between 110 an! lit nw no* 0s. iltil way shares bare fallen in a still m >re trightful proportion ; those of the Northern, which at one time were !J00, are now litiO, and so firta. \ on c?nnot, therefore, find it tliflioultto conceive that in nu>?h a situation, the utmost distrust and aUrm previil among those who have anything to lute, and this distrust and alarm is quite independent of any politic il opinions. Until the causes which produce this state I of things shall cease to operate, it would be absurd to expect that the republic oan be considered as detluitlvrly established. If the projeot of tha constitution b? reeelvel with indifference, the question of the Presidency of the repubiio certainly is not so. It has been decide! to proceed to the election of the Presi lent so ju atter the vote of the constitution, but a diBl tulty has arisen of a particular kind. The project of the constitution is a 1 series of abstract propositions?a sort of skeleton or scaffolding, upon which is to be erected a system of I practical laws by which the country is to be governed. It is contended, and indeed deoided, that the present Assembly, which was appointed to form th<; c institution. was necessarily iutend'-d also to fr ji those orfanio laws, without which the constitution would be nert. The Assembly has, tberefore, decided that it will n"t d.ssolve itself until these organic Uws are passed. ,1... I... II.... I..I .!/? 1# WAlll.l ha rlllTt flit to lay.

A v?ry important resolution wan takio last evankqg by the club of the Hue de Poitiers, which was to v >t? for the postponement of the election of the President of the Republic until aft^r the Assembly -h?ll have panted the omanlc laws, a period, as I have a'ready stated, of probably two years For two years, therefore, will the provisional state of government of France be probably continued.since this determination of tbe club of the Rue de Potters involves the vote of the majority of the Assembly Oeneral Cavagnlaa will almost certainly resign immediately after the vote of the Assembly in this sense. M. (iou tchaux, the Minister of Finance, has resigned, and tbe Mnniteur of thU morning oonttlns the appointment of M. Trovet Chauvel. late Prefect of the Seine, and formerly a banker at Mans, in hU stead. This appointment has not given satisfaction at the Bourse. Paris, Oct. 0, 184-8. The Bourne and Money Market. It was generally expected that the late ministerial change would produce a sensible amelioration in the market. It brought to the government the snpport of the majority of tbe country, composed of peaoeable citizens. indue rious aad long acoustomed to tha development of our various productions. The nation would, it was bop?d. respond to this marked progress in ideas and moderation, by a resumption of business, and less distrust of tbe future. Tbe Bourse, where tbe goid and b4d obanoes of tbe interests of society are invarinbly indicated,wai somewhat disposed to spenlate a riee on the faith ?#f a majority of 525 on tbe vot? of conttducce. Unhappily, it is more easy to destroy tbtn to rebuild, and it itoes not uppvar that we art yet at tbe termination if the difficulties which ware ere tied by the revolution of February. The state of tb?lndirect revenues during tbe nine first months of 1818, has prepared for us a sorry picture Compared with IK47. there is a diminution of 102 millions A deficit was expected, but not so con-iderable. We must, however. console ourselves with the faot, that the lust quarterly account is not to unfavorable as the preaaoiug. The financial and commerotal consequences of tbe general ' bouleveritmmt" in Germany. seem to occupy our speculators at thin moment noti* than any- t thing else. The International commerce of these vase countries with France may be regarded as suppressed for a long time, nnd it is little to be expected that the revenues of Frano* can reeover entirely, ao long as the commerce of the two oountries shall be lntnrrupr.ed. It Is then to be feared that our Minister of Finance will find himself obliged to anticipate the resources provided for tbe public service to ton end of January, 1850. Now. as it is not probable that the government will wait until it has completely exhausted tbe 428 millions of extraordinary resources, before procuring other*, fears as to our future ' financial eituatiou are excited on eaoh oooasion that n?w doouasents, bringing '.he autueat of our finances before up, ara published Thai, the last weekly balance sheet of tbo Bank of Kance h?s produced considerable s? nsatlon iu the market. bectuse It ibows a oontinual falling oil in the amounts of eomMhU discounts that Index of the commerotal mate of tbecountry. The discounts fjr Parte and the whol* of the department! do not exceed 177 million*, while last year at the fame epoch, in a moment of commercial crisis. th?y amounted to 340 millions. Wo ara therefore compelled to see that oomuiereial credit ie ftill far from being established Tbere ie, it in true a little doing iu retail business, but it is all for oash The manufacturer* and merchants will not accept any kind of airangeinent in which bills are offered, because they l can as yet do nothing with them The bankers have not jet recommenced their discount', and positively rerme ' all kind of accommodation. The retail trailers experience all kinds of diflloulty with the b inks of die- | count, iind .here are 110 means of obtaining discounts through the Dank of France Thus all business is crippled, and only what is abso lately necessary, H either manufactured or bought. uDd tbia Hate of things cannot improve until confidence in reestablished. The Bour?", in the midst!of this present and prospective state cf affairs. is depressed and without business. Every thing is in a state of stagnation. Attention I* also directed, on the Bourse, to the affairs of Italy. There, as in Germ my. all is confusion, and there appears to be little immudiate hope of improvement. We are about to apptoioh the period of the eleetion of the President of'.ho republic, and, according t > all | present appearance, our state of absolute apathy is not likely to be ohanged, at all events, until then. On Monday, the Bourse seemed to be somewhat reassured as to the events of Vienna, and it was even . said that the Diet had opened secret negotiations . with Windishitractz to bring about a surrender ot the I city. Our speculators regard the return of the Kmpe- | ror into bis capital, as a very desirable event. Ixoause it would continue the negotiations relative to the affairs of Italy and he would be disposed. probibly fr MB . hh personal position, to make some concessions t > the j aediating parties. A report was prevalent, that the cabinets of Paris and London had sent a note to Charles Albert, opposing formally the resumption of , hostilities. This favorable news produced some pur- | cha'ers. but the great body of speculators stood aloof, waiting among other things the debate whioh will doubtless take place within a few days on the subject cf the budgets of 1848 and 1840. The effect which m*y be produced on the market by the details whioh will i be submitted to the Assombly on the enorm ius dofl- j ciency of these two yrars. is looked forward to with anxiety.
