They all knew perfectly well that they were for the use of the Fenians. They were priced at 2a. (VI. each. They were removed in boxea of 50, and when only two dozen Wet wanUd they would be car nea away under the arms of on of them. On one oocaaion deponent took 50 rske - headt tied bp in a cloth liaodriek'a publichoose, at ith oornrr of Mark't - aliey, and delivered them, bv direction of Michael Moore, to s mho whom he did not then know, but whom h would recognize.

Deponent knows Captain Michael O'Boyle ; oa two occasions he came to th table while they srere pike - making. Deponent knew very well that the pike were makinr for. th Fenian movement Deponent wa acquainted with Um Fenian oath ; it waa at louows : "lath of Almichtv God I do solemnlr swear allegiance to the Irish Republic, now virtually established, and to take up arms when sailed on in defence of it in territy. I also swear implicit - obedience to my superior officers ; and I tak this oath in th spirit of a soldier of liberty to beip.m uoo. Several persons connected with th Fenian Society, whoa names ne did not know, but wbom ne would recognize again, visited the stable where the pikes were made.

Mr. Barry remarked that that beinir a ease of the natnre of conspiracy, in the evidence given the persons would of course L implicated, and even tho testimony given against others might also bear on the persons present ; bat he wished rt to be understood that Mr. Sidaey would be entitled to conies of all the information! taken. whom informant believed to b bis wife.

It referred to finding in the offioe of the Irish 'People tome of the documents referred "to in the course of the investigation, among them a long communication from jar. u lveene, wiiica Mr. lurry read. In it the.writer advocated advocated "union," which wa' " the parent of libertv,' and without which he said success was impossible. " Every attempt," attempt," ths writer went on, f'to persuade the Clstermen to make common cause with their felujwcountrynien had proved a failure. O'Connell. Dsvis; and Wolfe Tone failed to trans mute the Ulster Orangemen: into Irish mtnota." He then proceeded to inquire into the cause of these fsilurea. It was impossible, he snrued. tb move tJlstermen bv wit or eloquence. The langusge they understood was that of the counting - boose, asd it should have the ring of the precious metal in it. It waa our daty, he proceeded, to eccommcxltte ourselves to "this amiable dullnest," and emplov a Ian gutge which suited their intellects. We should tell them that we' shall protect their property ia the United States if they protect our property and aid our designs in Ireland. There were two millions' worth of linen in Ame rica ; bat they would quadruple the quantity of Ulster fabric sold in America. " We shall turn into Ulster a stream of wealth ; but in that ease Ulster must aid us with all her power and resource to carry out the great object the liberation liberation of Ireland . . . Political leaders never sought to confer pecuniary advantage oni Ulster, and therefore the sensible men of Ulster refused to form a compact with tbem." Tbe document went oa to the effect that if - Ulster continued to sustain the system which wa crushing Ireland she would be punished. 40,000f. worth of property was at the mercy of the Irish eititent of New York. It might be destroved at a moment' notice It wat a nstional guarantee in ins nanus 01 us insn exiles tor us aatety or their brethren brethren at home. . . . Should w be subjected to persecu tion that property may h destroyed, a consummation wt should deplore. But should factious impedimenta bs flung in our career tbe gate of ths American market may b closed for ever against tne industry Of tbe - NorUi of Ireland. Air. bnni said that article was never published. V, Tl.rrw Ttkinlnn Si. T - 1 - . , .'It t. to to have Mr. O'Donovan Rous, Mr. Laby, DrTo'Leary, Mr. O'Connor, and Mr. O'Keeffe sent for trial. With reference to Mr. Hopper, I will ask a remand for a day or two, as there is some evidence which I have not now at my command, command, but which it ia intended to bring forward against him. I am doting ths case Bow in form as against the part Ira I have named. There will be evidence aeaintt other persons which may affect them, but of which they shall have copies precisely in the same way as if it wsre directed par. ticularlv against themselves, ' Mr. waters. Of course I could est. eonaUteatlr with common sense, ask you to discharge Mr. Hopper ; and as Mr. Barry says he has som farther evidence: I presume roa will consider that sufficient to warrant you to remaad him, and, that being so, I would sale you to fix a day for his case. Mr. Strong. 1 shall a a matter of form, remand tha charge against Hopper to next Monday, leaving it open to yon. In cas Mr. Usrry sbal b prepared to proceed on ta earlier day, to arrange to have him brought tip on that dar. Mr. Sidnev. Oa behalf of OXtary, O'Connor, Laby, aad O'Doaovaa, baring learnt that it is your worship! in Wa - ' tioa ta commit tbem for trial. I think it oalv f&b - ta mv this one observation. You anil perceive that I have not cros Tralnrl tba witoasses proaooaj sgslost thea parties, with ths xoeptioo of Ptit, th Informer, prodoosd oa Saturday last, aad tha fsw question that I aaksd Um wHOill UMdrayra. Th xti war brought hava without say trtHmaHnii twing gjvssi to thsm f O' - T - i natur or characttt of UM'Sridaao propoaad to b na4 sa - ainst them. Titer wsre eottttqasoUy wholly nproparedt tBttract JfrJaati, tlb solicitor. MUUMastwetilMysreaU la pcaitioa to girt, tad being, as I may say, vhoUj atTiaoa hargs preferred tfaiaat them,' and tpprarbig tTpoa th face of the depositioas, I thilk toot worship will set that I tak tb our which is ostti aly tha most owtb - Bleat, ad possibly tho ssost Jiktly to trad to tbeir betsafit, by sal croaa sxaminliig aatil I am folly itutracUd at to their views, feeling, and' their tatwtrt to the case mads against thtm hers. Wofla,' Uterefore, 1 followed with, ths frtstsst atttstSoo' tbe abls, hiiJ, sad powerfal abiress snads by Mr. Barry oa Satorday, I shall reserve aatil. aoo - UMrosoasiea all comment and observstiou opoa the matters contained la that vary able statesaaat I would only appeal through tb pre to th public ba suspend their judgment, at all events, against these parties until they havs been hssrd through their counsel sad witnesses. From the peculiar peculiar nature of ths charge it was iawviuble that ia Um eoars of Um inquiry svidene should b inErodacad, no doubt affecting absent parties as wall as tho bow present ; asd it is eqaallr probable that when anather batch shall be brought up evidence may trantptr which will affect thea parties when they are not present. And a a eharg of conspiracy is pointed" against all tbes gentlemen, cash become respontibl for th .acta of th other, it it shall b proved that tha eoarpiraey bad aa existence in fact, . and that a common design was entertained. Therefore,'! reserve to myself a wholly on. fettered opportunity of entering anon a future occasion tha defence of these gentlemen; and I hops my having refrain! from cross - examination will not be attributed to any other reason save those which I have mentioned. These gentlemen gentlemen have naturally, like myself, sal v learnt since they, were brought into court ths evidence which has been brought against tbem. That evidenee affects them all mors or lass. At present they sre in solitary confinement, or at least I may say substantially so. They are sot allowed to hold communion with each other in tbe gaol ; and I don't know whether or not, having regard to the mutual liability east upon them by Uie nature of ths charge, the Crown could in any way sanction the gentlemen being allowed to meet, even in th presence of an official, for a certain time, because their defence is a com moo and a single on. I thi ok it only, fair and reasonable, if the prison regulations would allow it, that th prisoners should be allowed to us each other for the purpose of putting down their views upon paper. Each will then have the assistance of Uie others, for whose acta be msy be mads amenable to justice. If on of my clients be made, answerable for th act of another, it is only fair' to allow three or four of them to meet and afford them the benefit of a conference. Ths prison officials, if necessary, might be present. This will enable them the better to rive their instructions to their solicitor, Mr.Ennis. I know, to s certain extent, it is a question of prison discipline discipline to keep them separate, but this would be only a fair and reasonable concession.' I know Mr. Barry is not now in a position to give a promise, but when tn application is male, and a representation made to the Crown, it will be in hit power to raise no objection against it Another , thing I would request is that the Crown will allow my client a copy of the Irith People newspaper, a it may be useful in framing their defence. There were two copies seized, on th file at tbe office and the other at Mr. Luby's house. Mr. Stronro said he saw no objection to granting ths latter request ; anil, though he did not see that prisoners charged with the highest political offence. were entitled either to in - (lulrence as reirards prison discipline or the possession of do cuments, yet, in mis cate.it tne thrown saw no oojecuon, ne would not leave auy ditaculty. Mr. Sidney, Q.C., also inquired if an examination nf the' papers seized at the office might be permitted on behalf of the prisoners. Mr. Stronge aaid he could not make aa order on that point. I Mr. Sidney, Q.C, thought it only reasonable that he should be made arquaioted with tba document seized. Mr. Strong said Mr. Sidney thou! J apply to the Attor - nev - uenerai. Mr. Barry. O.O.. laid Mr. Strong had stated correctly that the application did not oome within his Jurisdiction or province, it took tbe.lorm or an application to tne urown. There wat no doubt much in what bad been urged by Mr." Sidney wat correct. At tbe tmetimo he (Mr. Barry) could only make the representation in the proper quarter, ana leave the Crown to decide. And all h could ay, a far a he was concerned, and for those whom It was his dnty to ou sidert wat that every fair facility should be given to Mr, Cuming, or any others, preparing for their defence.' jir, Sidney. uuite ngni. Mr. Strange. I presume that b satisfactory to you, Mr. Sidney, and meets your wishes? air. oiuoey saia is was. Mr. Stronire. That bsicr the case, it It ray datr. I con ceive, to commit five of those persons charged. Aa regards Mr. flonrier. he shall be remanded fora week until Mondar : but Mr. O Donovan Kossa, Mr. O'Keefe, Mr. U'Kary, Mr. Luby, ana Mr. OCoanur are committed for trial on mis charre. It is mr duty to ask them, before committing them. if they wish to aay anything with reference to.tb charge if they are aware of what it is. and. st th am time, to in timate to them that anything they will say will be taken; down in writing, and may be used la evidence against mem on tbe trial. It is for them to consider, being represented by able and judicious counsel, whether it would be wise for them to venture upon sny defence in this preliminary in, vestirstion. I take it forgrtatod that they have no remark to make : O'Leary. 1 es, I have a few remarks to make. Mr. Strongs. Do you wish to have it taken down ? O'Leary. Yes. take it down, if you please. Mr. Sidnev. It is richt to state that, actinr for O'Leary. I took ths course I did, and I adhere to it ; and any statementstatement statementstatement - be now makes is not with my concurrence. "O'Leary. When first w were brouzht before this Court, Mr. Barry said Uie Government waa not proceeding against as from any fear of the to - called Feniant. bat. at tarsal could understand him. because certain weak - minded people ' i suppose including my Lords uandon and I ermoy were airaid. nince the Government gave orders for our arrest, I may lay, tlwugh'shortlv, that at Uie Government are so verV smbeful thev must be somewhat afraid. lir - Stronge., You see, Mr. O'Leary, it doet not relate to tnecr.arge, wnetner ine iiovernment may do under any apprehension as to the nature of this conspiracy. Your, ob servations have no reference at all to us cnarge made against you. It is not to the nature of tbe conspiracy you are called on to answer ; and to discuss what the fear or apprehension apprehension of Government may bo it no answer - to the charge made against you.. Mr. O Leary. hen it appeared by Mr. Barryt state ment mat ivovernment Mr. Strosre (interruptinz). It it part of my dnty to ask have vou anv answer to make to the charre ? But you will plainly tee yourself that a discussion such at you now wish to enter into would be no answer within the meaning of Uie statute, l ou are represented bv counsel here. O'Leary. You wish to prevent me speaking. Mr. Stronge. I will take it down that you have nothing tony, or that you deny the charge. Say that you ard not guilty. O'Leary. No, I do not Sir. stron j. i ou do not deny the charge : O'Leary. No. Mr. Ecnis. What he meats, your worship, is that he makes no statement. O Levy. I make no statement. Mr. Luby. I onlv' wish to lav. in reference to the appli cation for copies of the papers, that Mr. Barry made a charge in the early part of hit statement as to the objects of atausination. It is unnecessary for me to say here.hccause it won't have anv weight in this transaction, that nothinjr could be further from my mind, and I am sure I may say trom ail our minis, than anything like assassination. I think be said he' found this observation in some speeches made in America. I dont know the particular speech ; but I have one speech in my mind. I foreet whether it wit io our second volume that we published aa article expressing disavowal of that particular speech. I merely want to lay that if we were allowed to look over the file of the paper we could make this clear. At tb anything else I don't wish to make any observation. The time may corns when it msy be necessary to da so ; but at present I do not think it is. Mr. Sidney laid Mr. Luby had very clearly pointed out the reascmi why they should be furnished with copies of the newspaper. . O'Donovan Rossa. It is useless, I suppose, to talk about getting bail, or about when we shall be tried ! Mr. Barry. At tpce - lilr at possible. O'Donovan Rossa. About the Irith Peovle office, that has been tubject I understand that gaardi have been put on it, who receive letters and papers coming" to the office, and transmit tbem to tbe Government ? Is that the fact ! Mr. Stronge. I cannot answer that. O'Donovan Rossa (toMr. Barry). Can you answer it! Mr. Bsrry. I believe that lettert have been intercepted. O'Donovan Rossa. Yon keep a constable in ths office. and any letters coming there are received by him, and trans mitted to tbe Government. Mr. Stronge. Bat yoa see O'Donovan Rossa. I aes that it U a most derpotia pro - eeeding. Russia acting in Poland, or Austria in Italy, would not do it, or if they woald it Is as much as they would do. Mr. Stronge. The Government sasames yoa to have been guilty of high treason. u Donovan jiossa, Ana took it lor granted. Mr. Stronre. This newspaper publication and evervthine connected with it were the weapons that wars wielded by those persons charged with conspiracy for the apeettine and overthrow of the Government of the country. That Is the cnarge against yoa, ana it it not probable that the Government, Government, acting on that, would allow yoa to avail roars If ia the meantime of the weapon! you are using against them. j isonovan ztoss. jq, certainly not. Mr. Strongs. So that, your complaint really surprises me. Mr. Laby. I suppose our counsel will afterwards touch upon this. Yoa said ths other day that the only Government Government in Europe air. stronge. l seg your pardon, tv hat I said was tnat ao Government upon either tide of ths Atlantic. Ur. Luby. Uowever. that is an historical Question I wont discus. Bat within ths present century a measure so harsh has not been had recourse to as the seizure of Uie Irith Peotle. At least sine 1803 it has sat been had re course to. Mitchel's paper was seized, bat it was after his condemnation, aod'when the Felon was seized in 1848 there was a suspension of Um Habeas Corpus Act. Bat it was suspended in this case. I say in tks present century such ao set has not taken place io the British Empire, aad with all respect to too, such a thing would lot take place at Um other side of Um Atlantic, unless martial law prevailed. Mr. stronge. informations were lodS4 charging yoa with felony before ths seizure. O'Donovan lioesa. w hart not seen these Informauoot. Mr. Stronge, That was not essential. O'Doaovaa Rossa.

At the Kingstown Police - court, yesterday, before Mr. M'LVrmott, Patrick Gafnev was brousrht no on remand, eharzed with having, on the ICth of September last, torn down and de stroyed a proclamation on - nng a reward 01 ax. lor in. arrest of a man named Stephens ; secondly, with having in his possession treasons bl documents ;'and. thirdly, with being connected with an Illegal society ealud ue teoian Brotherhoo'l, Messrs.

Inspector Carey deposed to searching the residence ot th. prisoner, and finding therein documents of a treasonable natnre and copies of the Irith Pfnple. The inspector, in reply to Mr. Sidney, said that he read th. paper, and that Um Crown might find some treasonable languag in it. , Mr. M'Drrmott I will send the easel for trial at th. commission.

A '(later named Patrick Power, who had 'been arrested in Clonmel on a charge of complicity in tha Fenian conspiracy,, was yesterday conveyed ta. Dublin by the 4 JO p.m. train, and escorted to the Chancery - lane station - house, where the charge was recorded against him. The prisoner had been arrested by the constabulary at Clonmel, on a warrant warrant signed by Mr. Stronge, and on his arrival in Dublin was charged at tho police - station by Acting - Inspectors Doyle and Rothesay. lie will be brought up to - day fofr formal examination. Last evening there was a public announcement in the Exhibition.of the awards of the jurors tb whom the contents of the Exhibition had been referred for decision upon their merit. The ceremonial took place in the Grand Concert Hall, and was of the most interesting character. Tbe admission charged on the occasion was half - a - crown, but the announcement of the proceedings attracted a vast assemblage. Among the distinguished persons present 'was Earl Russell, K. G. ; the chair was tilled by the Duke of Leinster, the chairman of the Exhibition Palace Company. There Were also present : Lady Rtmell, the Earl of Meath, the Lord Chancellor, Lord Wilton, Lord Southwell, Lord Howth, Lord James Butler, Lord Houghton, the Lord Chief Baron, Sir James Dombrain, Sir Robert Peel, M.P., the Lord Mayor, the Attorney - General, Mr. William Dargan, Mr. Jonathan Pirn, M.P., Mr. Justice Fitzgerald, Sir Percy Nugent,' Mr. C. R. Barry, Q.C, SI. P., Mr. Ripton, M.P., and Sir George Hodgson. The Chairman, who waa received with load cheers, said. My Lords and Gentlemen It gives me great pleasure to attend here this evening to take part in th. announcement of th. awards of the jurors. I regret to say that th. Lord - Lieutenant, through family affliction, is unable to attend bore this evening.. Perhaps the best thing we caa do now is to proceed to announce the awards. (Applause.) Several of the jurors and members of the committee were introduced to thwCliainnan and to Earl Russell. The Lord Mayor said. The pleasing duty devolves upon me, as Lord Mayor of the City ot Dublin, to return the thanks of this great assembly and of the citizens of Dublin generally to Earl IKnssell for his presence here on this interesting interesting occasion; It may be considered "aa another indication indication of the great interest taken in tha welfare of Ireland by - the' British Government ; and, when I state to yoa what Earl Knssell has done for this national Exhibition, I am sure this vote of thanks will be passed with the greatest acclamations. (Cheers.) Earl Ruasell'was the first Minister of the lintisb. Cabinet that made amove - ' rnent for tn. support 01 mis international isxnibuion. Uowhich wat beinir exhibited in tW world in bringing it wat tnrougn au exertions tnat wo uritian uovernraent on , t , of intdliieneeTand art. (Hear, j ia make thi Exhibition a great success in the United ol of tha by at 4 Anm. We have had thermos: clorioo seasoa we have been favoured with for years. It baa thed itt ben;gn "influence "influence over the land, and thousands and tent ot thousands of people have been attrsited to these shores to study sad xmin. th. various proaans cornoineu wnuia th. walls of thi miznifirent Palace : and there. I am (lad to say, they have beea induced to exteud their stsr. and to visit th. Mautuui coast tcenery 01 mis isianu. or. 11 iny thought hotter, to ro to th. more or lest remote localities where.iaterestin; relics of thi past most ehundautly invite th attention of the traveller, the wiraiir,and tne arcnseotptrtsi. (Hear, hear.) I may say, ia alluding to the success of th. Exhibition, that there is one f eater, which thoold not be omitti. It it this, that, notwithttaading the thousands and tens of thousands who have come bare rbo have enco. here almost exclusively by one lio. of railway, from Kingstown to Dublin not one singl accident or mishap ha occurred to throw aeloom over the attractions to which our. people ware hurrying. (Hear.) I believe that that is a feature which should not be omitted when wear, congratulating ourselves on an undertaking of such magnificence and importance. Xow we have the ceremony of thia evening, which present another phasolintertstingbope which thiat - xhitntionna called tortn, and those gentlemen who on thi platform hsve beea invited havs been welcomed to share io. th. honour which this Exhibition confers moat hav. felt doable Battered by tbe distribution of tbe awarls by the haads of - that distia - guished statesman who has bnncmred us: with hi preseuoe this evening, and who ha kindly lent the aid of hi position to give eVJot to our proceedings. (Applause) I propose a rote of thanks to the iurors of the several sections with which the Exhibition has been divided, and I will, if not! presumptuous, thank them in your nam. for tb. assistance they have given ; and I will ssy more, tat when th. present present season has passed over, when all the jpmdnctions com - to where they came from, or elsewhere, that the recollection of these gratuitous services will live io th. memory of all who have and who has not? taken an interest in th. pro - si pert y of the Dublin International Exhibition. ( Enthusiastic Enthusiastic cheers.) The Attorney - General said he ba! been requested to discharge discharge the duty of seconding the. vote of thanks proposed by his friend. Sir Robert Peel. and. in doing an. he could aid very little to what ha had said. II could onlv sty; tnat tn. decision ot in. jnrors nan not oeen casiMnTed. nor it fsirnet questionfrland h. believed they bad brought to the discharge of their duties th greatest possible amount of patience, industry, and intelligence. H believed the manner in which their duties hat been discharged was inch, at least, as to carry horns conviction to every person that they had brought to the discharge of that duty th. moat entire fairness and the most perfect" impartiality. The question of who was to obtain a prixe at an exhibition exhibition of that character waa a transitory and.eomparaUvely trifling natter, bat the influence which aa exhibition of that kind was calculated to leave on the minds of tho. who witnessed it was ons not likely soon to pass sway, and he hoped that great buiHinj was 'destined to rrmsia as a record of the past ; at Uie same time, when these work ef art hail disappeared there would be left behind an influence influence and a power which should not cease to animate ths minds of those who bad boeo fortunate enough to admire those which that Exhibition had presented before them. (Hear, hear.) It was no small triumph to see the numbers who came m from the rural Dirts, it was a ereat pleasure to witness the satisfaction it produced on their minds, aad i thev went back to their homes carrying with theui many a val sable lesson ; and the progress which ther had witnessed would not soon be forgotten by th. people of thi great country. (Applause.) The motion wa then put from th. chair, and carried. Mr. Alexander Parker, J. P.. returned thanks pa behalf of th. judges, and said, They ndeavoured, as far as possible, to seek out intrinsic merit sad to reward it, and the reason why th. medsl swarded by th. jurors hvl not been mora numerous than they were was tb. simple one that if the medals were to be male gene ral they would lose their value. (Hear, Bear.) It was BOt possible, therefore, to pleas. 'alll - rtiay. bat. h. thought on tb. whole, it would be found that the jurors had distri buted their favours with liberality - (Hear, hear.) Lord Hotzhton said he had been asked to propose a vote 1 of thanks to those mixed bodies of men who had acted as a Committee of Advice in the Exhibition. Those com - comm'unitv. and theyhad been the mean, of bringing to - 1 ceiaer a vast amount 01 intelligence on uaeiui suojecia. th in 1 12f. industry and art.

BsaidtlMtUMirtlsaresbarrdber were brought about to give their support to it ; it was through hit despatches and bit great influence that foreign nations were led to co - operate with the executive committee in promoting promoting th. success of this Exhibition. (Hear.) When to all these we add bis presence here this evening, I think I may tay that not only th. executive committee, not only this vast assembly but the citizens of Dublin and the couo try at Urge feel under how deep a debt of gratitude Erl Russell has pliccd them. (Applause.) I wish on this occa sion to lake the opportunity of saving how pleased I am that it has happened during my year of office aa Lord Mayor of the city that an Exhibition hss been carried to s. successful an issue, and not only thi Eshibition. but tbis splendid building ia which'we are now assembled will runiain as a monument of Dublin energy, of Dublin wealth, and of Dublin perseverance. (Cheers.) I tay I am proud of this grand winter palace, and the city may well be proud of it, and proud of th fact that Dublin ia the only city in' the empire which ha within its municipal boundary a winter palace and grounds inch at we have her. (Applause.) I nave been much in England during the last year, aad ia bdiaburgh and Ulssgow, and 1 cannot convev to yoa how anxious the people in these place are to emulate the citv of Dublin io this matter. With these few observations I beg to propose a vote of thanks to Earl Russell for his presence presence this evening, (Applause.) Mr. William Dargan seconded tbe proposal, snd was re ceived with cheers. He said be was quite sure the motion would meet with th. approval of ths assembly, lie had. therefore, great pleasure in seconding the motion. Tha Chairman put the motion, which was carried br acclamttion. Earl Russell wis received with loud eheennff. lie said. If in order to be entitled! to vour thanks it were neces sary to hava any scientific knowledge of the' beau tiful objects ol industry and art displayed la this Exhibition. I eertainlv would not be entitled to that compliment ; and although the Lord Mayor has been pleased to sty that by the letters' I wrote to foreign Governments Governments I assisted in promoting and facilitetinz the obiecta of th Exhibition, yet I most say that that was no more than my duty in the position. I hold as a member of the Government. But there is another tiling which, perhaps, I mar not inapprooriatelv io trod ace on this occasion. I can tell yott how delighted Her Majesty, who takes sueh an In terest in every exhibition ot this sort, will hear of the complete complete success of thi Exhibition, and ot that complete soo - eess I believe there is but ons unanimous opinioo, not only throughout Ireland, but on ths part of every person woo nat nad tne pleasure 01 visiting it, (uneers.) And now. after fourteen Tears'' experience, we mar as. how much these Exhibition tend to excite interest, to promote industry, and to foster what we may call competi tive examination! 01 tne products sad manufactures ot dif ferent countries, tnd how much they tend to improve the taste, and, by comparison with other countries, to facilitate each other in the work of improvement. In that respect there is ne Exhibition, I believe, that caa surpass the present present one. At least I am sure, from th. specimens I have seen of sculpture and painting that adorn tha walls of this building, that it one highly to th. credit of those wh. have carried it out, and must have given high satisfaction tn all who take an interest io th. progressed those arts. With regard to the success ot th Exhibition I will make bat two ' observations. The oae, that it is necessary for th. access of sach Exhibitions that the, nations of the world should be at peace with one another. At a time when nations are at war with each .ther it would hav. been folly, and worse than folly, to hav. proposed any Exhibition Exhibition in which Um various rations shoal exhibit their works of industry and art. (Cheers.) It ia likewise requisite for the success of these peaceful art that sot only should there be peace abroad, but that traaqaiOitv should be maintained at horn, because it U quite impossible to devote devote atteotioa to industrious pursuits, and to cultivate and puna, those inventions which distinguish onr ago tho. marvellous invention by which we are enabled to travel ma quickly over the whole space of the Cvutrneat, tod to convey convey our thought, ia a few momenta, over sofue 3,000 or ifiOO miles then, caa only progress rban there is internal tranquillity. (Caters.) Sir Robert Post 00 rising wss warmly received. B. aaid. I have been invited ta propose a vote of thanks which needs no words of eloquence or weight to reoomBMadit moat favourably to th. good opinion of those whom I haw. now Um honour of addressing. It is a Tote of thanks to the gentlemen wboss arduous ad gratuitous ssrviesa in thiaexhibitioa merit that they should reoeiv. at yoar band oa such aa twarioa a this year most cordial adtaavwltxhr - meats and thanks, Tb. vote of thanks I hava to propose Is en behalf of tho. gauUemaa who hav discharrsd their permitted - to say that these Exhibitions io themselves for were no light matters, but great manifestations of the u,e hear.l IndnatrV and art were but two means which Provi - . denee had given us, to rise them for tbe advantage of man - ; kind to control the imagination of man. to Si it on the j canvas or transmute it into th. marblo. (Hear, bear.) After rS j Committee of Advice. Mr. CliarletR - Barry, Q.C, M - P seconded the vote of thanks in an able speech. The Earl of Meath, io returning thanks, said the highest reward ther looked or wished for was the approbation ot tb. citizens of Dublin. Although their labours were great, they were considerably lightened by the kind feeling they bsl experienced experienced from every person, from Her Majesty on the thron. down to the humblest artisao in bis workshop. (Hear, hear.) Mr. Jonathan Pirn. M.P.. also returned thanks on behalf of the Committee of Advice. i The Lord Mayor having been called to the second chair. The Lord ChneelIor moved that the thanks of th. meeting meeting be given to his Grace the Dike of - Leinster for occn - pving the chair 00 that occasi.io, and for hi uniform atteotioa atteotioa to the business and interests of th. Exhibition. (Applause.) (Applause.) rielitd bat to mention the name of the Duk. of Leinster, and he wss tare it would excite all the feelings and all the emotions which the most distinguished orator could desire to' enlist in the heart of his hearers. From the first he took part ia the Exhibition in all its vicissitudes, sod he was there that evening to see the climax of his work, and to sea how well it had prospered. He believed that to his Grace were they Indebted for the generou patronage which Her Majesty was pleased to confer on th. Exhibition. (Hear, hear.) Tbe Exhibition, with all its wonders and all its art and' beautv, would toon pass away. Some of the works of art would, perhaps remain in this countrv, and others would be taken away, but there would remain, h. hoped, for many, and many a year this magnificent building building and these 'beautiful garden. They would remain to delight, to interest, to give health sod gratification toth. citizens, to be presided over by his Grace. (Applause.) Lord Southwell said he felt great pleasure ia seconding ths motion, which was earned wita acclamation. Th. Duke of Leinster, who was enthusiastlcsny cheered on presenting himself, said he could assure theiu that he felt very seasibly the honour they had done' him in proposing proposing the vote of thanks ; bat anr exertions he had made in promoting tbe building and th. Exhibition were amply repaid repaid by the success which had attended it (Hear, bear.) It was a principl. that h had long wished to see carried oat ia thi country, of Irishmen meeting together and ' carrying out an nndertazing towmaelve. (Hear, br.) lie had been frequenUy asked it they had not let tha building to ta English' company. He could assure tho. present that they hail promoted and carried out th. building entire! v themselves, themselves, and without any assistance from any Englishman Whatever. (Hear, hear.) He was proud of that, because h. wss quite certain that if they pat their shoulders to th. wheel they weald mate this a prosperous country. ("Hear, hear." and loud applause.)
