Nothing more has yet been heard of the Fenian prisoners

liberated by violence in Manchester last week,—Captains Deasy and Belly. We fear they have escaped, by the help of their in- numerable Irish friends. The police, it is said, are going to offer not only the 300/. reward, but secrecy as to the-name of any informer who may give information leading to their discovery,—a curious illustration of the effect that secrecy in voting might have in facili- tating bribery. Many a man would take money secretly for a secret vote,—and keep his engagement,—who would refuse to be known publicly as a turn-coat.
