THE NEW YORK HERALD. WHOLE NO. 6837. PSICE TWO CENTS. CAPTURE OF LOUIS BAKES. rrival of the Clipper Grapeshot, with the Fugitive on Board. tEMENDOjJS EXCITEMENT IN THE CITY. TBS STANWIX HILL TRAGEDY RETIRED, tei Ac., *? lit Metropolis wee thro mi Into a state of great excite at yesterday afternoon, by the annoueeemeot that Grapes hot was coming op the bay with t/rols Baker, alleged murderer of Bill Poole, on board. The re* t rapidly spread over the city, and scarcely half aa ir-elapsed before the new* ?ai in every nook smd cor ofthia vast town. Some regarded the report a? a x while others felt sanguine of its truth, and betook naelve. to the barge offioe, an4 there awaited the B -nation of the Intelligence boat six o'clock the question of the arriTal or acn ?al of the fugitive Ba^er w.m settled, for at that hoar ,w. boat, containing ?i*ht or n<ne persons, ell armed, lag in charge a prisoner, who was at onoe recoirnixed be loatc sought lor Louis Baker, approached tne Bat ?, aad landed its passengers in safety. to unexpected arrival of Baker, as may be well Imagin waa the general theme of conversation, aad anxious (tries were made to ascertain the particulars of his ;?re aB'l safe delivery at the port of New York. As he facte connected with the successful undertaking interesting, we give a det*il*d account ot the affair, slated to us by one of the officers who was commie ed to pursue Baker: ? thk captukk. a the 18th of March, the Grapes hot, Capt. Hepburn, tail fro* this port, having oo board e ght officers, ing all legal authority to arrest Baker, who, as was Itosed, had left New York in tb* brig Isabella Jewett, .he port of Palmos, Grand Canary Island. Nothing arkaMe happened during the voyage The vestel, i fair wind** and good weather, made the remarkable rt run of 20 days to Palmes, arriving at that port on 7th of April. avlng safely anchored in the roadstead, the officers ?eded ashore, where they learned that the Isabella stt had not yet arrived. Tbey then in'ornnd the horiUea Of the nature of their visit, and requested r aid, should thsy require it, In effecting the capture ;he fugitive. The auihorltiee at first sesned ,t timid about interfering one way or the other in matter, lest they should off-ud the home govern t at Madrid, but at last consented to render all the , Is their power towards delivering the fugitive up to offloere of justice. ;n days were anxiously spent In cruising about the id, to as to intercept the Isabella Jewett ere she lid arrive at her port of destination. On the raorn of the 11th a brig, standing in shore, was discovered a the masthead of the Grapeshot. All sail was at b crowded on, and the clipper stood for the *>rig. In it aa hour the vessels came within hailing distance, * the captain of the Gripe-hot requested the ter of the brig to back ber and re to, aa ho wantid to board her. The jest was without any delay complied with, in a few momenta the purmers and the pursued e within a few hundred yards or one another. The having dl?guised th?mnelves in sailor's garb, got , a boat and rowed to the brig. Gutting alongside, object of their search was discovered on board th? ett, apparently unconscious ot the nearnnes of tboss ,ursuit of him The officer* hastily gathering around er, he was Informed of the nature of their business, warned not to make any attempt at escape, ai f were fuUy prepared for anything of tha- sort ; at same time, each of them ^resented a loaded revolver lis breast. aker, finding that any attempt at res-stance wa leas, quietly submitted to be manacled, and wa ?Ely placed in the boat and rowed on hoard the peshot. The Captain of the Isabella Jewett expressed dissatisfaction at tfce conduct of the officers, think no doubt, that he had been relieved of rather a iblesome paasengsr. A stateroom was pra pared for prisoner, and being well guarded, the Grapeahot sail for New York with a favorable wind During passage home a constant watch was kept by the ?n upon the movement, of Baker, lest he shiuld !? an attempt at euiclde. The voyage to New York performed ia twenty-nlns day?, during which time ling worthy of| mention occurred, except, perhaps, t to any queetion asked Ba*er aa to the c.u?* aasiga ,y Viiai for having shot Poole, he would tell the of. r. that he committed the deed in self defence alone, t the deceased waa the, and that he acted efeace of bis own life when he discharged the pistol fter a prosperous voyage the Grapeahot sighted the hlaads on the morning of yesterday, and succeeded getting Into port about six o'clock last evening. ?hila coming up the bay, it waa determined by th Mrs to hlr? a steam tug and convey their prisoner in anoe of the Grape shot, so aa to avoid tae presence jrowda that would be anxiously waiting the arrival he Grii peshot. The plan succeeded admirably, for officer.' succeeded in landing their prisoner without trouble or Inconvenience that would otuerwise have mded their labors. TUB ABRIVAL AT THR TOMBS. andlng at the Battery, an omnibus was procured, 1 tho entire party quietly drove off to the Fifth ward Lion beuee, which waa soon reached; but ere the tele had reached Leonard street, wind of the affair I spread like wllddre among those in the neighbor A, and soon the entire neighborhood was crowded b a dense multitude. The excitement being intense, it. Carpenter, with a great deal of prudence, ordered the Mrs to take their prisoner to the Tombs, he being rful that aa attempt at rescue wou'd be mate. ;er after some delay, was put into a coach and rea o? to the city prieon, folio wsd by the concourse, a thronged the thoroughfares so closely that it was h great difficulty toe earriage could be driven to the [arftf safely lodged Baker ia the prison, officer Evans needed to Judge Stuart's reeidenoe, In Twenty aloth eot, to Inform htaa of the a rest of Baker, and to pre ? a comultm -nt for their prisoner.

After t^nng it water and making all neoees* ry preparations to intercept the Jswitt, we weighed anchor, anl tor several daja ito id off and on the harbor. On Tuesday we eepied the Jewett nnder the land, ?tending towards the city of Palmoe ; we made all sail, and cn nearing her, requested her captain to back her foretopeail; he did so, and the deputation Manned one of out boats, rowed to the brig, and found Baker on board, whom we dlBoovered at the wheel. Previous to the arrival of the brig we had seen the local authorities, who stated tbenr willingness to aid as in securing Baker. They, however, had no chance o aiding us in his arrest, as it was made by the deputation of the police that sailed from Mew York in the Grape sbot. As we approached the vessel, Baker went forward and ftood looking at and wondering who we were, and what w? wanted, little thinking that we were in pursuit of him. We boarded the vessel, and as we jumped upon her deck, Baker started for the cabin, but *as intercepted by us He recognised several of us? calling us by name. We arretted him and took him. with his effects, on board the Grapeahot. We then made sail for New York. A stateroom was prepared for him, and he was made as comfortable as circumstances would permit. He is now enjoying excellent health. We left the island of Grand Canary on the 10th of April. JOSEPH LEE HANS, S. K. THORN K. LORENZO D. PLACE, 1HOMVH BARTON, HKN RY EVANS, GEOitGE GREENE, EDWARD K.

Tbone who cume to see Baker were disappointed, aa he had been taken from the vessel in a steam tug off tae Battery. After tb? vessel was secured, the officers and men immediately left the ship, and the crowd dispersed to learn more news elsewhere. The bark is about 500 toes, and carries thirteen guns.

NKW AB HiKOMUNn> We understand Mayor Wood it determined to make the efice of tbe Chief of Police, in tbe Park, what it sootiU have been year ago? the headquarter* of all the police and city inteUigei ft at every hour of the day and nig at Instruction* are to be no uxl to all the police captains to immediately make known at tbe Chief's office every event of inter?Ht, every tire alarm, acoidont or im pertant arrest that transpires in their reepective dif* tricti. lbese report* will ne duly noted in a book to b prepared for the purpose, and will be open to the proa ano tbe public Something o' this kind has long been need ed, as now event* of tbe utmost importance take piaee which are cot known even to the Chief for twenty hours after they occur. '1 here in now a tetarraph. con necting every station houae m the city with tue Chief's office, and tbe poiiae have orders to report every flrw nnd every particular oonnected with it, ao that the Q?ty HkII bell may be rucg and the firemen properly notified' of its whereabouts; but so remise or incompetent are many of tbe police captains and lieutenant* that they do not know how to successfully manach tie wires, and the telegraphic aoparatus attacbad to their station house* is more ornamental than u*efm. Tbe new arrangement, by keeping them constantly in. practice, will remedy all this. The accommodations the Lew system will afford toe puhl.e are very great Those who lose children, or have vaJuania prooerty stnl tn, cao now immediately repaie to tbe Chief's offloa, where the news will be forthcoming. Tbera is another matter tbat abould be attenne* to A number of what are tetmed silent firea take place, of which no account is sent to the Fire Marshal, whrse duty it ia to investi gate all of them, a* there is as much incemilartsm at work in 6r?s tbat do not aasonat to anything as ia those tbat <*o. The facilities it will afford the reparU-ra in the pur uit of their arduous duties are ton evident to be commented on bare. There oaght also to be a larger force emp oyed at the Chief'a office at night. There at* now only two officer#, whose duties are very exacting and laborious A m?n should be appointed, competent tn write an intelligible report of what is transmitted by the wires, it would co?t but little end afford con/ids rable accommodation The new arrangements redact great credit <>n Mayer Wood, and abow th\t be has n true understanding of the wants of the press and the public.
