Our readers need pot be informed -that:the
charge brought by :Ilatt4e Flarittgatt against
Connor, excited the utmost amazement in all
who heard it. , So much at variance Were his
untarnished reputatien and amiable manners
with a-disposition -0011ark i and: !the:
that which must haVe prompted !the: perpetra
tion of such a crime t that it was treated at first
by theimblie as =tulle:rut:nor: The evidence,
-however, of Phil Ctirtis, arid his ;deposition to
the Conversation which occurred between him
end Connor at the time and Pliee alreedykpown
to the roader, together with the corroborating
circumstances arising from :the correspondence
of the foot-priots about the haggard with the
shoes produced by the censtable—all, when
combined tog,other,left little doubt ofhis guilt.
No sooner had this impression became gener
al, than the Spirit of -the father was immedi
ately imputed to the son, gut Many sagacious
observations made, all tending to show, that,
as they expressed it, " the had drop of the old
rogue would sooner or later 'come tut in the
young one ;''' he wouldn't be what he was, or
the bitter heart of the miser would appear;''
with many other apothegma of similar import.
The family of the 13odagh,however,were pain
fully and peculiarly circumatineed. With the
exception of Una herself, none of them enter
tained a doubt that Connor was the incendia
ry. Flanagan bad maintained:a good charac
ter, and his direct impeachment of Connor,',
supported - by such exact :circumstantial evi-j

1 man's 'defence. Aware as they were of the
few) of Una's attachtitent; and apprehensive
that the shock, arising from the discovery of
his atrocity might be - dangerous if injudicious
:ly disclosed to her, they resolved, in accord,
1 since with the suggestion of their son, to
break the matter to, herself With the utmost
delicacy and caution. .
'lt is better,' said John, 'that she should
hear of the misfortime from ourselves; for, ,
after breaking,ft to her as agently as possible,
we can at least attempt to strengthen and-con
.sole her under it.'
' Heaven above : sees,' exclaimed his mother,
'that-it was a black and unlucky busineis to
her and to all of us ; but now that she knows
what a revingeful villain he is, -I'm sure she'll
