It is claimed that the last time the jury returned the judge's remarks were partisan and hostile to the prisoner, and decidedly unbe- coming the so-called purity of the ermine, but Irishmen have reason to know that this robe, as far as Irish political trials are concerned, is of a very inky blackness indeed.
