MARYBOROUGH ASSIZES, MARCH 25. John Kingsmill, Robert Harvey, Robert Bolton, George Walpole, James Hinks, and John Owen, policemen, were indicted for the wilful murder of Richard McDaniel, the l2th of August last, inflicting several bayonet wounds on his person.  W. Boxwell, Esq. M. D. proved he had attended the deceased before his death, and that he had examined his body, upon which he discovered fourteen wounds- one of which was inflicted by a triangular weapon above the navel, and on in the left eye, which had penetrated its orbit, and entered the brain, and which the doctor believed have been the cause of McDaniel’s death. Bridget McDaniel, sister of the deceased, proved that she was in company with her brother, in the house of James Fitzpatrick, of Bullinakill, on the 12th of August last. About the hour of ten o’clock at night the police entered the room where her brother was sitting, and desired him to pay his reckoning and quit the house, which he said he would do as soon as the company the inner room would come out. The policemen said the deceased should not wait for any person, and some of them seized him the breast, upon which deceased desired them not to drag him. One of the police men then struck him with a gun; a number of policemen then immediately rushed into the room from below stairs, and every one then struck her brother with one weapon or another. She saw one of them draw his bayonet and thrust it into the body of the deceased. The defence urged on behalf of the prisoners was, that the Magistrates had caused general instructions to be issued to the police, to clear all public houses of their visitors, at ten o’clock at night, and that, acting in pursuance of these instructions, they had entered Fitzpatrick’s house on the night the deceased lost his life that he had refused to obey the orders of the police on that night, and that in consequence, an altercation and struggle ensued between them and some country men, who were in the house, took part with the deceased which caused a general fight between them and the police, and that in the quarrel the deceased lost his life. The jury acquitted the prisoners murder, and found them guilty of manslaughter. Sentence - Kingsmill, Harvey and Bolton, to be transported for life; Walpole and Hinks to be transported for fourteen years; Owens to be transported for seven years.
