waving their handkerchiefs, the gentlemen their hats, and the barristers their wigs. It was a delirium of joy. The contagion spread through the multitude outside, and the shouts of triumph passed down the whole line to the Gresham Hotel, in Sackville Street, at which Mrs. Yelverton was staying. The crowd insisted on taking the horses from the carriage and drawing it to the hotel, where she was obliged to appear on the balcony, to gratify her admirers. She said: “My noble-hearted friends, you have by your verdict this day made me an Irishwoman—you will live for ever in my heart, as I do in yours this day.” The verdict of the Dublin jury will, probably, not be held entitled to much weight in the ultimate decision of the relation of these unhappy parties. To Mrs. Yelverton it is a question of virtue and a

title; to Major Yelverton (as to whose virtue no question arises), it is one of criminality. To the former Mrs. Forbes the question is of importance more than commensurate with her folly. The legal question has already been submitted to the reviewal of the Courts, both in Ireland and Scotland. In the former country, application has been made to set aside the verdict and for a new trial, or to enter judgment for the defendant. In Scotland, the proceedings seemed to have attained to a very unnecessary complication, and the bar of England has been astonished and puzzled by a series of interlocutory judgments couched in a jargon more barbarous even than their own — the unlearned public meantime awaiting what to them would seem to be the solution of a very simple proposition.
