Sir Chas. Russell states that several such letters have been sent to him since the proceedings I of the Commission opened. Two witnesses, ex-moonlighters and members of the Land and National Leagues swore to-day that when they joined the organisations the perpetration of outrages was discussed, and plans laid for shooting landlords. They also stated that sheep, the property of farmers obnoxious to them, had been destroyed, and that they were quite ready to commit murder if so ordered. Upon Sir Charles Russell attempting to show that witnesses were Fenians, they declared that Leaguers and Fenians were identical. One of these witnesses swore that the secretary of one ot the societies compelled him to swear allegiance to the Irish Republic.
