The Court of Queen's Bench has decided that the judgment

passed upon Mr. and Mrs. Holland at Limerick, for cruelty to two orphan children, was invalid, inasmuch as that part which directed them to be kept in solitary confinement was not warranted by any act of Parlia- ment or the law of the land. Mr. Freeman then moved the Court that the prisoners be discherged : and the Attorney-General having offered no opposition, their discharge was accordingly ordered.
