piece of his oull. in a del. whtb wai flight i t
Galway. The various fcrapc in which he has


been involved fine that time hre fo notorious.
.that they nerd no repetition : but it in now well
known, that for many yemrs he owed his safety to
being eafld In a fort of armour, mnde ,f many
pieces of Indlia rubber, which are elatlic, but im-
penetrable to tie word or pistol fliot. This, how-
ever, prelerved his unhappy exiftince a few days
line, when fix men forced ihito Cafllebar gaol,
and fired a cafe of pifols across a table at him ;
the bullet of that levelled at his body rebounded
hack, but that from the other, took place in one
of hi llhighs. A blow was then made at his head
with a Ilrge candlellick. but this he warded off
with a plait, which he held up as a fort of fliidd.
He perrecty knows his aflailants, but is filent in
refpct to their names. It is aid, that above forty
of his party are taken.

'I ih Chic, DBlon gave a molt learned and able
charge to the july, which was a comment prlnci-
p.lly upon the oath of a Grand Juror, and which
li L siied, by obferving, that the duty of a Grand
Juror was to imitate that antient court which fat
in the dark that they m:ght not pay any rcfred to
perflns, and, therteore, for that, Jufice waU
painted blind, not that fie might not fee offIences

impartiality teach thert, that the fedal tenures
have been abol hed, and that the tides of Lord

Mr. Stanlry then mvced the Court, for liberty
to admit counsel and his agents to Mr, Fitzgerald.
He flated, that fine the revolution, there had
net been an examinpl of fuch severity; that in the
cale i,f the allAnins, i the ieign of King William,

ton alfo, his fii many other cafes;but the Chief Baron interrupted
him, F.i) ig, he need not make a parade of cafes ;
if there had been a private application to the At.
torn y-Gtneral, who was then in his eye, he did
not doubt but every reasonable indulgence would
be Ilhwn tO him.
The Attorncy-Gct cral then faid, that he under.
(food cvci y thing which was cotififcnt with his
falc.keqcping had been, and would continue tobe
done.
The Hon. Denis Browne, High Sheriff beg.

but was ilterntpted by the Chief Baron, who
faid, that living fuch fads, might tend to preje.
lice the minds of men who might perhaps be oa

Mr. O'Farrel then moved, that Mr. Thoma
Burgers might be admitted to Mr. Fitzgerald, he
lated, that he was a person absolutely necefary

Cieridlar. Afril ix.
After the proccdings of Monday laR, the Chief
baion ordered the federal perbns charged with
muder to be brought up the neat day, to be ar-
raigne,. and this morning fevcral of them were
accordlngly brought up, amoeg whom was Mr.
Timothy Brecknock, fcrarly an Englilh Solicitor
and a man who has been for man years the friend
and companion of Mr. Fitagerald;-he was fhab-
bily ldrefed In a d:rty whitlh coatr his hair is
grizzled, and his beard, which is ofconllderable
engthb li perfdtly grcy.
As loon as the judge had taken his feat, Mr.
Brecknock iated to the Court, that he was weak
and Infirm through age, and applied to he let with-
in the bar, thit he might it. The Chief Baron
told him that he could not comply with hiarequeft,
but that a chair 1huld be provided for him, that
he might fit in the dock.
Mr. Stanley flated, that the Counfel on behalf
of Mr. Filzgerald had a motion to submit to the
Coort, and Mr. O'Farrel went on to lay the ill
late of Mr. Fitzgerald's health before the Court,
and his having been plundered by a mob, after the
accident.
The Attorney-General faid, that. he fuppofed
this was to be a feLond edition of the fpecch ot
yeltcrday.
Mr. Stanley replied, it was not; and fald,
though him cilent was not able toprocure an affidla.
vit from a phyfcian, that his health was fo preca-
rious, or from a surgeon, that his Itate wa fTo
Uncertain that he could not attend, and though he
could not himself make fuch an affidrrit, yet he
rullted to be biblee to lay before the art fiich an
alfidavit as to the Rate of his mind, as to induce
hib Lordfhip to poflpone the trial. He alfo (aid
be hail an application to make to his Lrdlhiprt
humanity, which was, to request his Lordfnlp to
to down to the gaol to take hi affidait, as frim
the treatment Mr. Fitzgerald received, he had
been confncd to his bed, and could not come to
the court in any other manner, and he belie ed it
was a frequent prakice fur Judges to go to the jail
of Newgate, in Dublin, for nfilar purporet, and
hoped his Lordhiip would fo far favour his client.
The Attorney Genera ar(ed Mr. Stanley, if he
meant h. put ofthe trial before Mr. Fitzgeral
had pleaded ?
T'he Chief Baron a&ed, wai there any affidavit
that Mr. Fitzgerald's (fate ofhealth was fiLh that
he could not with fafety come into court to be
arraigned I
Mr. OFarrel begged ive minutes time to con.
full with Mr. Fitzgerald, whether he could make
fuch an afidaslt, which being granted, hi. Cnio-
$1 went to him, aid after Aaying about a quarter
dlan hur, returned.
Mr. Ulick Burke then fated, that with safety to
bis life, Mr. Fitegerald could not come into court.
The Chief Baron afked, if Mr. Fitzgerald had
ki n viited by any p-ifon of medical Mill ?
Mr. Owen declared, that Mr. Fitzgerald fill
langulhed under iljunrie reclved, while in the
custody of the law, from the mot ravage and bru-
tal barbrity, and hoped his Lurdfhip woold take
the aflarit.
Mr. Ulick Burke alleged, that Mr. Fitzgerald
laboured under extreme illnefa, and that a violent
raih on his tin made it unfafe for him to leave his
bed.
Mr. Stanley then Rated an affidavit, which Mr.
Fitzgerald proposed to make to put of his trial,
In which It was alleged that his late of health
was fuch as not to be able to take his trial at the
present aflizes.
The Attorney-Orneral observed, that it had
been Rated by Counfel, that Mr. Fitzgerald could
not make Inch an affidavit a1 was now proposed,
bu li foon as his Counfel were admitted, the
affidavit was prepared.
The Chief Baron agreed with the Attorney.
General, that the lads were certainly fo.
Mr. StXr ley, to exculpate himfclf, faid, that he
bad no previous consultation with Mr. Fitzgerald,
and had mifconcei'ed his fate of health.
1 he Chier Baron informed him, that no person
aecufte him of improper conduct; and it being
fuggeAed by a gentleman in court, that Dr. Boyd,
the physician, who had attended Mr. Fitzgerald,
was then in court, the Chief Baron directed him
tn vilit Mr. Fitzgerald, and report his late of
health-and the court adjourned for half an hour.
The Court being again opened, Dr. Boyd, on
the lggeftlon of Mr. M'Carty,.one of Mr. Fit&-
gerald's counsel, o ftworn. He declared that
Mr. Fitzgerald might be brought up warmly
Sorered, or In his bed, as he alleged that he bail
Sno ctmhes i that his long lying in a horizontal
posture iad made it, perhaps, lefs fae for him to
come In nay other manner; and that, contrary to
all patients hqlad known, who generally deflred
to leave their dlM, he could not prevall upon Mr.
ritllerald to iiit bl, nar could he !ndhm him to


take animal food, which would have f;ewdily
amended the injuries he hab fulian.ed by lisf of
blood.
The Chief Baron ordered him to be brought
up.,wirhproper preranion in.hi bed.
Mr. M'Carty then alked Dr. Boyd. if them was
not a rath on Mr. Fitzcrald ? to which the CDoor
answered in the affrmative, but that it was not
dangerous.
The court then adjourned Tor halfan hour, filter
which adJonrnrmnt Mr. Fitzgerald was brought
into court in his bed, and laid on the witnrls's
table, where he was arraigned, as being percent,
aiding, abetting, and affifing, In the murder of
Patrick -Randal M'Donnell, Efq; at thelbridge of
Cilaccarva, in the county of Mayo, on the aflt of
February laR ; as were Timothy Breckneck, An-
drew Craig, othelwife Creagh, commonly called
ScotchAndrew anim< Foy, William FPlton, Jhhn
Chapman, and Wallisi Kel;, charged with traiter-
cany murderinrf id Pltrik Ranlal Mi'Doniull."
When Mr. Brecknock was called to plead, he
faid there did not appear to be any .oflat of a
true bill against him; that in that cife the pre-
lumplidn of law was, that the bill was ignored,
and claimed his right to fee th, tlue bill.
I he Chief Baron dirtlted the Clerk of the
Crown to go on with Ina dut) ; and the bill end-
ing, agaiuft the foinr of the fatule," Mr.
Brecknock walked what ftattc to which the court
answered, that it was iinw premature.
When the q.ellion, h,,w will you b tried ?"
was put to him, the Cleik of tl Cro'vn dcfired
him, as ul'lal, to arifwrc, by (,od and my
country," Mr. Brecknock faid. I should choofe
to be tried by God, and not hyri.rcountry.-
After berig rept.cdly urged tj ajfwocr in the
ufial annrer,
The Chief Barnn informed him, that if he did
nqt anfwer in the ulual manner, lie muf proceed
according to law, consider him am mute, and pafs
hatence on him acenrdingly.
Mre Brechnocit farl, it was impofl'le to he
tried both by Cod and the country. '1 bcy were
two diftind propofitions. But being again u'ged
by the Chief Baron, he ande the ufual anfvvr.
George-Robert Fizgerald and Timothy Breck-
mnck then federally held up their hands, and were
rcfpertlvely arraign(il, for i cooking, flirring up,
and procurlog the several ptefll;i named in llth
indictment, traiterodnly ald felonioufly to kill
and murder Patrick-Rar.dal M'Donnell, Efq.
Mr. Stanley claimed the former indidmrent be
read, as the charge now made ft-med to him to
be for the fame crime laid i.1 the former indi -
ment.
The Chief Baran then desired Mr. Stanley to
plead or demur ; add
The Attorney General aflkel him if hechoec to
'dem,;r to the indiAment ? if he did, he would
join him in the 'eminrrcr in/ jsanr.
Mr. Stanley declared he thought himfclf able
to fslpport the demurrer, but, after a confualation
with the ba:, it was given up as a dangcroul ce
periment ; for if the demurrer was overruled,
featence of death would be prffcd. Mi. Fit7ge
raid then pkaded to the indicmcmet, as did Mr.
Brecknock.
The fevera pcrfr.r hb frer mentioned were then
ariainied for the murder of Ch.irles IIiplon; aLnd
Mr. Fiizgeta:d and Mr. Brecknock wcre after
wards arraigned for procuring the murder of the
faid Charles IlipLfn, and pleaded in the lfual
form.
An affidavit of Mr.Pitzgera:A's was then read
for the purporf of poflponing his trial, which.
from inability, was signed with his mark. It
ftak'd Mr. Fitzgerald' having been arrened on the
sift of February, his tenantry barn:"ld, and him-
feif attacked in prifun ; it alfo flited the abfence
of four material witnefTe., and the temper of the
county. which rendered it impolfible, with fafcty
to his life, to abide his trial the nsxt altize.
The Attorney General then moved, that two
affidavits which he held in his hand, mightbe read,
which waa ordered.--One was th aflidavit of
Andlew Erdmondfon, which proved notice of trial
being feared on Mr. Fitzgerald ; the other was the
affidavit of Patrick Clarke, fub fhei iff of the coun
ty, the purport of which was, that Mr. Fitzgerald,
on the night of the day on wh'ch he war commit-
ted. had told him that he (houi.l be properly re-
warded. e.
The Attorney-General faid, it was not his wifh
to prefer on the trial, but he willed to inform him,
Mr. Fitzgerald, that his trial would certainly come
on long before the nest afizes.
The Chief Baron faid, from the fRate in which,
he law him, he had judicial knowlcdy of his fti
atlon, snd In fuch a fIatee.ithought a man ought
to be perfectly at cafe ; tlf d ate to be ftriken
of from a prisoner who ..to be tried-Why ?
that he may be in fuq 4ll[ m f himself. An-
other part of his elf t ie feared was but too
true, that the country wu not in a fltte of temper
fit for his trial. Human nature will be human
mature tIti, atu where crimes like thLi: are pee.


retrated, it is impoihile not tp feel refentmunt '
And rie was forstifiei in h i opinion, when he co.n
fidered, that even he, the plifsiser, when in a
gar)l, in the cuftudy of the law. was not ftcure
tram violcecc : but he thought It very right in the
Attorney-General t acquaint Mr. Filtrgeald, that
he mnut be fpeedily tried I the public tranquility
could not remain difitrbed, and it was probable
he and Baron Power would return In the next
vacation to try Mr. Fitzgerald. He thought it
alfo neCLIfry to fly, that the trial was ponfponed
but on the late of the prilbner and his affidavit of
it, which-kind of affidavits he knew ought always
to Ie fparingly received ; the trial he was there-
fore of opinion, ought now to be out ofl.
The Atlorney-Gerr.al declared, tha govern..
ment had ordered him to piorecule the gentlemen
who had woulnied Mr. Pitzgcralil in prifoe, with
the fame rigour as Mr. FitzgeRiali himfclf.
The court then adjourined for halt an hour, to
let Mr. Fitzgerild be carried out.
As loon as the court was opened again, Mr.
Brecknock claimed it as hii right, a, an knglills-
man, to have a Jury of Medisl r Lingur.
The Chief Baron info:medl him, that whenever
he was tried. he would be tried according to law.
John Cog, James MaRerrfon, Davidi Saltry, Philip
Cox. Arch. Nowing, John Barrey, Hen y George,
Mich. Bruen, John tiheny, anit William Robin-
tI", were arraigned for the murder, of Mr.
M'Dolnell and Mr. llipfim.
The prifoners were then removed.
Indictment against Martin and others, for woand-
ing George R. Fitzgerald, in the gaol of Canlc.

The gaoler brought up the following perfona to
be arraigned.
Mr. And. Gallagher, Mr. James Oallagher,
James Martin, Lfq; Charles Higgins, Luk- H.-
gius, and Daniel C`lake, for having fe!oniouny
wounded, cut, and abused Mr. Fltgerald, in gaul.
They were then indidled for an affault, to which
tliy feverally pleaded, not guilty.
The cost was afterwards applied to, that the
above prisoners mght be permitted to give bail,
which was oppolci by the Artorney-Gencial, aiid
refused, con.iqucntly they will remain in gail
until their trial anl this put an end, until the
a9th inin. to abufinf h of t much national impor.
stance.
In his mtferable circumstances, Fitarerald re-
ceived every infance of humanity, both frcm the
Lord Chief Uaroi aind the Attorrey-Geri ral, that
could poffibly be extended tu him with confilency
