Troubles among the Fenians.
New York, December 9.
--At the session of the Senate of the Fenian Brotherhood
, held in New York on the 7th instant, articles of impeachment were filed against John O'Mahony
of the Brotherhood, for perfidy and malfeasance in office.
The charges and specifications, which are very minute and voluminous, were served on Mr. O'Mahony
, on the following day, with notice to put in a plain response, within twenty-four hours, under penalty of having judgment by default recorded against him. Mr. O'Mahony
having taken no steps to meet the indictment against him, the Senate to-day resolved itself into a Court of Judicature, according to the provisions of their institution, and having investigated the charges, declared them proved, and deposed O'Mahony
from the position of President
A unanimous vote was then passed calling on the Vice- President
, Mr. W. R. Roberts
, to qualify by taking the oath of office, on which that gentleman was sworn into office, stipulating beforehand that no compensation should be attached to the position while he occupied it. The Secretary of the Treasury
, R. D. Killan
, has also been deposed on grounds similar to those advanced against Mr. O'Mahony
An address to the Circles has been issued by the Senate and forwarded by mail.
