DUBLIN , April 9. The court house
where the trial of the Phuiniz Park
awaaains is to take place was besieged
this morning by crowds eager to gain
admission. The authorities , however ,
only admitted the jurors celled in the
case and fifty reporters and they were
let into thu building at an early hour.
Judge O'Brien , who Is to hear the
case , took his seat on the bench at
11:15 : o'clock , when the work of swearIng -
Ing in the grand jury was proceeded
with. The prisoners , Brady , Kelly ,
Delaney , Oaffre , Onrloy and Fitzharrls ,
were brought to the court house at 9
o'clock and v ore escorted by a whole
troop of dragoons. The counsel and
solicitors for the prisoners who ap
peared for thorn at the examination at
the Ivitmalaham court house wore
preaotit. JuJgo O'Brien addressed
the special jurors , and elated that the
crown would allege that Lard Fred
erick Cavendish's murder was
1 no pirt of the crime as con-
coctt > d , but ho was a victim to
his presence in the park with Barko.
Nevertheless all present at the tlmo
of the murders wore responsible there
for , i'ho grand jury then retired It
IB selected from the special panel
drawn from the residents of both the
city and county of Dublin. There
were very few claims for exemption
from service. The grand jury EOjn
returned with a true bill against
Joe Brady , charging him with the
murder of Lord Frederick Cavendish
and Bnrkd and Brady were arraigned
at the bar and plead not guilty. An
application was then made for a pre
sentment of the bill , as preparations
are not complete. Tao counsel for
thfa crown opposed a longer postpone
ment than till to-morrow. McCano ,
Brady's solicitor , Htld : A. M
Bulllvan would act for Brady
If time was allowed him
to get ready. Judge O'Brien
said the trial must proceed to-morrow ,
If Snl ii van is not ready to take it in hand
he ( Judge O'Brien ) would appoint
some one to act for Brady. The case
was further considered , the result be
ing that the trial of Brady was set
for to-morrow and Dr , Webb Adams
was assigned by the court to defend
the prisoner.
Carley , Kelly , Thomas , Oaffrey and
Fitzharrls wore next each arraigned
separately and pleaded not gnilty
All wore hold for trial.
DUBLIN , April 9. Judge O'Brien
Informed the grand jury that the cesa
of the attack upon Juror Field would
not bo called until after the ordinary
business of the commission wa3 dis
posed of. Addressing the special
jurors , ho spoke of the importance
and gravity of the Pbotulx park mur
der caao. He pointed tothe exlotonoo
of regularly organized stcrot societies
hold together for the purpose of com
mlttlog murder. Membora of such
societies actually guilty of taking the
lives of their fallow beingsand those
gnilty of assisting and encouraging
them , wro clearly guilty of murder.
The latter were equally guilty with
the former. But mere membership
in the society , even though
U might ba formed with
a general object to commit murder did
not necessarily make all members
gnilty of that specific crime. If the
Jury believed the evidence the
orown would prodioo it was their duty
to brlrg in a true bill against the per
sons accused. He dwelt on the enor
mity of the crime which had as if by
magic brought a dark cloud over the
bright favorable prospect that It Boomed
was abjut to open for Ireland. The
judge informed the jury that the
crown would allege that the murder of
Lord if'redoriok Cavendish waa not a
part of the original design of the
Pfccealxpark assassins ; that ho was o
victim on account f f being at tbo tlmo
In company with Barko.
Tiio crown would claim , however ,
that all persona present at the tlmo of
the murder wore responsible for the
killing of Lord Frederick , and were
therefore accessories beioro the fact ;
that these who were not present ro
responsible only for the mnrdor of
Burke , which was a premedlted act on
their part. Tao lives taken on ho
6th of May last were sacred and ar
to the people. He had not , for his
park , the least mliglviug that the jury
would bo found faithful In the dis
charge of their onerous duty.

Ono of them was reduced $3,000 by

Iii the supreme court to-day a de
cision was rendered In an interesting
custom case , involving less than four
dollars , brought hero upon a writ of
error from the circuit court of Wis
consin. The o&so Is entitled "Maqda-
lone VonCoUhausen against John , collector , and Henry 3It
Payne , postmaster of Milwaukee. " Itn
arises out of the following faott. In [
1877 , Mrs , VonOotthauson received
by mall through the Milwaukee post-
office a sealed envelope containing itby
small knit shawl sent her by
her daughter-in-law in Germany , as
11a token of affection , The envelope
| was duly registered and bore n n1
doisotnont statincr the nature , of tho-
oo n tents. Mrs. VonOolzhauson open ,
0 j the envelope in the collector of
customs' presence. No attempt was
made to evade payment of the proper
dutyjor conoaal the contents. The
collector refuted the preferred duty
aud seized the shawl and confiscated
U aa smujjulod goods , aud informed
Von Odlzhanson she could petition the
secretary of the treasury for leave to
pay the duty and take the shawl , and
that the extreme penally of the law
would probably bo remitted. She ,
however , declined to pursue the conrte
sigqostod , and brought suit against
the collector and postmaster for unlaw
ful conversion of property. In
the first trial the jury found the
above foots nnd judgment was
entered for the defendants on the
ground that they acted strictly within
the lluo of their cfliolol duty. An
ippoal was taken to the U.iltod States
supreme court , and Justice Miller ren
dered the decision as follows : It Is a
violation of law to Introduce dntiablo
articled at alj In this manner , ( by mall )
and thoartlcUsso Introduced urn liable
to solauro for * uoh violation. Wo think
that in making the nrlzuro the de-
londants only did their duty , and
whatever the hardships to the plaintiff
they are not linblo In thin action on
the facts found In the verdict of the
jury. "
