Their names were Jeremiah Holly, Lawrence Towers, Patrick O’Shea, Pat O’Conor, Pat O’Keefe, Jas. Watson, John Donihy, Thos Moynahan, and Thos. O’Driscoll. Mr. Stout appeared for the defence. Mr. White, Crown Prosecutor, prosecuted, and the Orange Lodge was represented by Mr. Ilamcrslcy. Several witnesses,"principally members of the pol-'cc, were examined. The most important evidence was that of George Kimber, bootmaker, who stated that before the row sixty men left O’Driscoll’s hotel, shouting, yelling, and gesticulating : and that when the Orangeman were assembled O’Driscoll was in the thick of the mob, inciting them to teatdown the Orange banner, and offering a hundred pounds to those that would stop them marching. It was proved that throe of ihe crowd wore pistol pockets. Two Orangemen proved having had their scarves torn off, and one said he was tripped and thrown down. The whole of the accused were committed for trial before the Supreme Court in March. Bail was allowed, O’Driscoll in LSOO and two sureties of L 250, the others LIOO and two sureties of LSO each.
