      GALWAY ASSIZES
      The Town Assizes terminated yesterday, without any capital convictions; and
      about 4 o'clock in the evening, Baron Pennefather left town.- Mr. Justice Burton
      still presides in the Criminal Court-nor is it likely that the county business
      will finish before to-morrow evening, as his Lordship has several persons yet to
      try. Up to four o'clock this evening, there were 56 persons tried and convicted
      in this county, and 28 acquitted; as yet we have to record no capital
      convictions.- The following are the lists of persons tried in the Town and
      County:
