      The Dublin Commission was opened on Friday by the Chief Baron and Judge Morris
      (locus tenens for Judge Keogh) when the former delivered a charge to the grand
      jury, who found true bills for treason-felony against Generals Halpin and
      Fariola, Colonels Warren and Nagle, and a number of others. The trials were
      postponed to Monday, but in consequence of the continual absence of Judge Keogh
      were further put off till Wednesday. Unusual precautions seem to be taken to
      guard against any attempt to rescue the prisoners; the outer gates are kept
      closed and are strictly watched and guarded, and inside the court almost every
      second man is a policeman. Colonel Warren was the first put on his trial, he
      declared himself an American citizen and protested against the jurisdiction. His
      counsel withdrew from the case.
