The New Orleans Detective
Charged with Jury Bribing.
A dispatch from New Orleans says: Dominick C. O’Malley, the notorious detective, who was charged with having attempted to pack the jury in the Hennessy case, and who mysteriously disappeared when the crowd at Clay statue and at the parish prison on the memorable 14th of March were howling for his blood, created a sensation Friday morning by surrendering himself. He drove to the criminal court with his attorney, Lionel Adams, and James Barry, ex-clerk of the criminal court, and gave himself up to Chief Deputy Sheriff Arnault. There are three indictments against him, one as accessory to crime of bribing one of the state's jurors in the Hennessy case, one for perjury in a suit in the civil court some years ago, and one for attempting to procure the commission of the, crime of perjury in 1882 in a suit of the state against himself in the criminal court here. Bail was fixed at $3,000 and Barry signed for the whole amount.
