!! Irish Catholic Chronicle; 2 Nov 1867 "treason-felony"
- Irish Catholic Chronicle And People's News of the Week
Saturday, 2 November 1867
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.
