It was undoubtedly a very remarkable
trial. From whatever point of view eon-
aidored , it was calculated to attract and
5r attention. The crime sent a thrill of
horror through the country , it was BO
daring and BJ cold-blooded. The victim
was a French gent Ionian , resident in
trcland , and noted as a man of kindly
and charitable disposition ; and the youth
who was arraigned for the terrible deed
most certainly had not the face of a mur
dorer. On the contrary , his countenance
was singularly mild and gentle in cx <
> roesiou , nud in his bearing ho appeared
retiring rather than aggressive.
The trial , to which I ulludo was that of
Thomas Hullorau , for the murder of Qua-
AVO Thitbiult , of Rockwell , on April
28 , 18G2. It commenced on Monday ,
luno " 3 , 18G2 , in the court-houao of
Honmol , the capital of the county of
Hpperary. I have eton it frequently
tatpd that a lcgalgentleman _ of Jiigh
rank , being ezamTned lTeforo "some com
nisslon on the question of laud tenure
n Ireland , said that Tipperary , : o far as
t was o ncorncd , had aottlud that matter
with the riflo.
About the time of the murder of M.
riiiohnult the aucicnt and undying die-
mto between the owners nnd the occupl-
> rs of land burst out with all its old bit-
erness. The rojly ) of the ballot - on the
) no side to the notice to quit on the other
nras , for the hundredth tiino In our histo-
y , making men of all shades of opinion
iang their heads , and pray that that God
vould send us aoino means of ending the
annatural strife.
In the beginning of 18G2 ouo of thoao
periodical waves of agrarian crime awopt
ver Munstr. A gentleman named
TUzgorald was walking with his young
vifo on a road in the county of Limerick ,
vhen two assassins accosted thorn , and ,
vith terrible daring alow him before her
yes. The body of an old mwi named
luGuiro was found fearfully mangled in
fluid Carrick-on-Suir. The
near - - eup-
coed cause for his murder was that head
ad taken a farm from which another
nan had boon evicted. Col Knox , of
irittas Castle , in the county of Tippory ,
roa set upon arf ho was riding ono day , by
wo men , and his lifo attempted.
In these circumstances the govern-
npnt determined to ieauu n special corn-
aiesion ; and it was before this tribunal
10 trial of which I write took place. It
pened in the court nouso in Clonmol on
uno 23 , 18G2. From that little space
lero , surrounded by iron bars , called
10 dock , hundreds of men wont to their
oem for having taken the law into their
wn bands and wreaked on some land-
> rd or agent or bailiff , what was called
10 wild justice of revenge And now
nether act in the over-recurring and
pparontly interminable tragedy was
bout to commence , and all the dramatis
ersonoo were assembled and ready each
ue ifor ! his part.
The legal men , who took prominent
i thin trial were at that day known in
reland as mon of very great ability.
Ind. when I mention their names it will
o seen that the estimate of their coun-
rymon was correct for most of them
vo since placed themselves in the very
rOuc ranks in their profession in the
tngdom and to-day some of thorn are of
rorld wide repute. The court consisted
f Mr. Baron Deasy , subsequently lord
ustico of appeal , and Mr. Justice Fitz-
enrald , siucb raised to the peerage as
jord Fitzgerald and now a member of
lie liouau of lords , The prosecuting
.ounsul were Mr. O'Hagan , attorney
onoral , now Lord O'Hagan , and twice
ord chancellor of Ireland ; Mr. Liwson ,
elicitor general , the proat'iit distinguish-
d judge of that name ; and Mr. Bur-
caul Armstrong. The prisoner was do-
ended by ono ot the abluat men at the
rish or any other bar , Mr. Francis Me-
Donagb , EEaioted by , I think a Mr. John-
When the proceedings commenced the
ourt was densely crowded. The pop
lar mind was in a state of great excite-
icut , and the sympathy of the crowd
tiowud iteolf on the aide of the pris"tier.
ho crime was agrarian. It was another
ct in the long drawn out land war , and
hat was auilicicnt to enlist the masses in
is favor. That this feeling did not
rieo from a wicked liking for crime wua
nado very manifest during those days.
Coining down in the van from the prison
ach morning with Hulloran was another
nan awaiting trial also for mutder. The
hargo against him was that ho bad poi-
oned hia wife , and the loathing of the
) eoplo for him and his crime was us
narked as the lively sympathy they
howea for Halloran. This man was
ubsequently found RUilly and executed ,
'he formation of the jury was closely
matched. I was among the opectators ,
nd , knowing nothing of the inner work *
ngs of the proceedings before mo , 1
ould not see bentath the ourfaco , but
rom the remarks of the crowd nronnd ,
couli perceive that if there woo a atroug
ecling enlisted on the aide of the pris-
) nor there wern also feelings not friendly
M him , but not BO numerously represent-
d. One of the throng , well dressed and
vidently moving in the up'por circles ,
ifter ( urveying the jury , turned to a
oropanion and aaid :
"There could not bo a better jury.
? hey are all country gentlemen all too ,
' . think , in the Oormiaaionof the Peace. '
The other side of the question was not
eng In coming. A rather tattered look-
ni > agriculturalist ejaculated for the ben-
lit of all around ;
' 0hl Wishal May the Lord protect
ho poor boy ! I know every man on the
ury , and he is either a landlord or a
magistrate. "
And this was the state of affairs in the
jourt house. On one aide there was sat-
.faction that the tribunal was composed
if gentlemen of position and intelligence ,
who would know the value of evidence
ind whose verdict according to
t , On the other there was apprehension ,
loubt , distrust , that the men in the box ,
.akon from the same class as the murder *
d man , would not require much pressure
.o induce them to send the peasant in the
lock from whore he stood to the scaffold ,
It was in such circumstances thnt therca
butiuota of the trial commenced.
The attorney-general , Mr. O'ilagan
rose to state the CMO. From the rumor
and Anticipations for days before I wai
prepared to look on the proceedings as t
ilcspcrato struggle on the part of tin
crown to secure the conviction of the
prisoner. I had accordingly pictured tc
mjfaclf the kind of mon who would do
such work n ith thoroughness , nnd the
pictures I had called up were not by an ;
mentis prepossessing. I looked , then ,
Upon the face of this man with great cu
riosity. The wig , that pnculiar and , Ui
my eye , not graceful article of tlrosp.timdc
his appearance strango. But I could not
help fooling that there waa certainly
nothing ferocious or bloodthirsty in the
countenance of this principal character
in the terrible tragedy on which the cur ;
tiia on which boon raised.V0ri the con *
trary , to mo apoko rather of
calmness and bpnpvelonco than of any of
these characteristics which toll of a bad
and malignant disposition. It was the
foco of n man calculated to maka a most
favorable first impression ; and before ho
had commenced to apeak nil my pro-con *
colvcd notions had received a rude shook.
Ho turned to the bench and to the jury ,
and in a aubduod and solemn voice , but
with none of that sepulchral solemnity
which Booms to toll the twelve mon that
their business is to send the pris tnor to
the grave , commenced his statement.
Alter a few fornnl sentences ho took his
eyes from the jury , and resting his elbow
on the ludga of a bunch behind him while
ho continued to toy with a piece of paper ,
wont on to detail the faota which , the
Crown hold , connected the prisoner with
the murder. The ourpriao which I had
felt at his appotiranro was surpassed by
my surprise at the calm and Impartial
dignity of his words. There was no
trace of partisan rancor. There was clear
ly no attempt to strain any ouo point
gainst the unfortunate man in the dock.
Eho fiats were detailed so as to make a
mrativo that would abide in the mind.
I'ho brutal and cowardly character of the
itimo wa made manifest , "out there wr.s
10 effort to raise prcdudico against the
irisonor on thnt account , unless the facts
irst brought the guiU homo to him.
And now for the gist of the statement
Che victim was a Frenchman namedGus-
ave Thiobault. rio had u brother , Ohurlet- ,
'or whom ho acted as agent over some
anded property , while ho owned and
nanngcd soma other land himself. lie
osidcd at Rockwell , in the South Rid *
ng of the county of Tipporary. Ho was
'ouud lying on the road side murdered ,
lot far from his residence , on the nfter-
loon of August 28.18C2. A double bar-
oiled gun was lying under him with the
itock smashed , and also n broken pitch' '
'ork , and his face and head had been
norcilessly battered in. The gun wus
tia own , and its tno charges had been
xlged in his breast. These were the
lircumstances which first challenged the
tttention ot the police. Following up
iis movements on the fatal day , and the
acts surrounding him , it was found that
10 had lefc his homo about noon , having
aken a child by the hand some distanca
town the avenue , and there relinquished
lis little ciurgo to ttio nunjo. Ilu car
led a gun , and was accompanied by a
oroclous dog. It did not appear clearly ,
mt the inference left was that this dog
ras kept for purposes of protection , as
? hiebault had been in receipt of those
aisaivos , terrible to Irish landlords ,
mown aa threatening letters. These
lad ao disturbed his wife's peace that she
nsiated on his taking greater care in his
noveinouts ; and it was stated that ho
aid jokingly , when ho thought her solic-
tudo for him waa needless :
"Mo no fear. If I am killed , you get
nether husband. "
As a precaution ho was also occasion ally
ccompamod by a herder named Connors ,
lo was next seen atanding on the side of
> road , leaning on his pun , his back to
ho fence , in conversation with a man
rho waa facing him resting on a pitch-
ork , and within a few feat of him. This
iew was had by a man named Woodlock ,
ho leading witness for the prosecution ,
nd his eyes , with the exception of thoao
f the murderer , wore the last which saw
ho unfortunate gnntloman alive. Wood-
3ck waa taking a harrow which ho had
lorrowed to its owner. Ho was seated
n the aide of a donkey-cart and drove
lowly up the hill past the two mon
rhen he reached the summit ho hoard
ho report of a gun-shot immediately fol-
owed by another and turning , ho saw
moko riaintr from the spot on which the
wo mon had boon conversing. On this
pot was found the dead body of M. Thio-
lault. Ho swore that Thomas Halloran
ran the man ho saw leaning on the pitch ,
ork. TLoro was other evidence cor-
operative of the theory put forward by
ho crown , that the man in the dock was
ho murderer ; but this was the hack-
> ono of their case , and if it stood the
cet , and wont unihakon to the jury , few
lidccd would be the dayo of the young
nan looking out from the dock.
When the attorney general eat down ,
omo formal evidence was gone/into amid
Imoat broatliloss silenv > . It was not the
videnco now being given that occupied
ho minda of the audinncu , for they did
lot give much attention to it. Almost
very man there was speculating on
Vocdlock what manner of man ho was ;
low would ho give hin evidence ? Would
10 hang Halloran ? And , in the whispers
f the country people atanding immnd (
ho oprobrious epithot"iuforiror"was fro-
iiently hissed with vengeful venom

laths of life. Altogether hia appearance

looking steadily at the dock , ho pointed
to the prisoner. "Yes , there ho Is , Ton

A groan wont up from the body of the
court , These words should certainly be
HallorAii'o death knoll. What advaiv
tago was there now in prolonging the
aiVugwlt ? The law had marked his vie
thuoTid should have him. How did the
prisoner boar it ? I looked at him and
what ! ho took his eyes from the face ol
Woocllock ho threw nn earnest and ap
pealing glance toward the bench on which
im counsel sat. There , ho evidently believed -
liovod , waa his only hope. For the rest
ho appeared calm and smiling. Presently
the direct examination closed and it was
now the time for the atrui glt ) .
Mr. MjDjnagh , the advocate for the
prisoner , waa smiling and apparently
joldijg with ono of the Crown counsel.
It seemed as if ho did not fool that there
was any responsibility on him. As ho
rose ho was still whispering in the oar of
hia friend ; and , as ho draw himself to
his full height they both indulged in a
hearty chuckle. It almost sickened mete
to see such luvity and indifference , while
the creature in tho. dock , innocent or
guilty , must bunulforing something Itku
the tortures of the regions bolow. This
atrango advocate seemed in no haste to
commence. Ho turned over the loaves
of his brief , made a few remarkr ID an
undertone to his junior , and then gave
what appeared to mo to bo a somewhat
comical side glance uf , U < o crown coun
sel before referred to who smiled , shook
Ills hoad'and throw his eyes in U < o direc
tion of the witness. A.I this passed rap
idly but my eyes and mind wore fixed on
this strange advocate.
His facu was white and rather wrink
led , ana it struck mo that it would not
bo out of place oil the shoulders of a
graceful and fashionable old lady. His
attitude and his action were BO exceed
ingly graceful studied. I thought that
they Bouniod finical. The wig concealed
luo lumd so that I could not observe it ;
but the mouth mid lips were a study ,
they were so flexible and nucilo. Aa ho
stood there , a spulo playing over his
fact ) . I thought tiini a man whoso lead
ing characteristic was humorous and very
caustic sarcasm. Suddenly ho shot n
piercing glance at tho. witness , swayed
sightly aud gractfully from side to side ,
dangling his glasses , and then com
menced. Soft us the smile of a mother ,
! ; rt'atuful as the cooing of , a babe , were
Ilia first accents. Thoao who expected
the lichtoning nd the thunder were dis-
appointed. Had Woodlock been his
btothur the touo could not bo more
bland or soothinp. Ho asked aomo
trivial questions of a formal nature , aud
before ono minute had elapsed the look
if anxiety and fear had left the face of
Lho witness , aud succeeded by ono
rather easy and indifferent. As soon as
; his stage was reached a change , rather
slight though , abruptly came over the
nanner/.of the advocate. A v harshness
: repr into his tone.
" \V 8 there not an inquest in this
: aso , Mr. Woodlock ? "
The witness said there woo , and that ho.
iad been examined at it. And then with
lortcntoun gravity and an increasing
larshness of tone
' Djts your evidence hero to-day fairly
epreaent what you told the coroner ? "
The witness unhesitatingly said that it

Voodlock could comprehend the change ,
10 thundered at him as if ho were an al *
eady discredited witness , "Look at the
ury , sir ? "
Woodlock started , turned to the jury ,
nd reluctantly repeated the answer. It
raa as if the whole court had been oleo
rified. Hero was a vital issue Jyina cou-
ealed until nowand as yet not disclosed ,
'ho interest that had boon digging was
ovived , and the idea that it was all over
ritli the prisoner was shaken. Words
ould not describe the intense anxiety
hat awaited the evident crisis that was
oming ; Snatching up a paper , the bar-
ister asked :
" [ lad you over n doubt about the
dontity of the man you saw speaking to

T.ho answer como promptly , ' No. "
