4 ST. DOMINGO. High-Handed Outrage by the Dominican Authorities. An Ex-Governor and His Two Sons Dragged irom the Shelter of the British Vice Consulate. BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY. interview witn tne victims in ine Prison Under Ground. Excitement Among the Foreign Population. A BRITISH MAN-OF-WAR SENT FOB .Porto Plata, St. Domingo, March fl, 1873. Afa rough rl<te of sixty miles from Santiago, occupying two days, through rain and mud, over mountains us steep as the slope of a mansard roof, fording and swimming rivers, I reached here today at noon to And this community tremendously agitated over the case of ex-Governor Nuezl, sometimes called l.afltte, who, along with his two sons, was forcibly taken irom under the roof of the British Vloe Consul, Mr. Hamburger, jund cast into tho prison ol the fort which commands the harbor. He Is there, us I write, in a most loathsome dungeon and heavily Ironed. I had been but a very short time In town when an nide from Governor Gonzales, who is in charge of this province of the He public, came to Hay Ills Excellency would be pleased If I made a call upon lilm *s soon as possible. I came across the county In the lightest possible marching order, a flannel shirt and pants, u hammock and a few odds and ends that might be carried in a capacious vest pocket; but a iriend put iuo lu the position immediately of responding to the Governor's summons. 1 found Gonzales far better lodged than his superior, President P.aez. The audience chamber was resplendent In yellow and crimson damask, and the privato bedroom adjoining was fit for a prince. It was here 1 met Governor Gonzales, sitting In an arm chair and suffering from a recent attack ol fever. Gonzales is small, as most Dominicans are. but he is a man of mark. He has decision, energy and ambition, and if this Republic Is to retain its individuality he will some day be its President if the rasli act he has just committed does not disgrace him forever, lie has done a tiling which may give his name a world-wide notoriety. He has done something similar to what our Admiral Wilkes did at the opening of the Southern rebellion. He has lorcibly taken Irom under the shelter of the llrltish flag three men who sought shelter there, and a leverlsh anxiety pervades the community as to wnat action the commander of the British mau-of-war, which is daily expected, will take under the circumstances. Once upon a time a British commander, with his bulldog, knocked a town on the Haytian coast into splinters for an offence like this, but, perhaps, the forthcoming courier of Mars will be less impulsive. Accompanied by Mr. Victoria, the Chilean and Dominican Consul at St. Thomas, I called on Gonzaies and learned his version of how he came to burst into the dwelling of Mr. Hamburger, the British Consul, and take out the three persons seeking refuge there. Having already heard the facts, as far awny as Santiago, I found the Governor's narrative confirm some of the principal points. ueiorc giving it i iingm sime uiui in iny urst tetter from here, on the 10th of February, I mentioned that a "revolution" had come off In the mountains, headed by Knezi?otherwise Lafltte? who, protesting against the surrender of territory to the Haniana Hay Company, had taken the Held and disputed the authority of Baez. Gonzales moved against him, as he moves in every matter, with vigor and promptitude, and crushed him almost lnstanter. Nuezl was well known In this town?a very popular man he Is along the northern coast?and thay say who know most about the matter, that only for him Baez would never have boen President, Nuezl was formerly Governor of this district, and was well liked lor his many good qualities of heart. Bnt to the 8TOKY OP OONZALK8. He said that for some years there was a Mr. Puradis living in Porto Plata who had fled from Porto Itico, where he had been condemned to ten years' Imprisonment for assassination. Paradls was lnlmlcable to the Baez administration, and conceived the design of assassinating Governor" Gonzales, one of Us representatives, as a political opponent of General Grant's might meditate putting an end to the existence of Governor Dlx. Paradls was arrested, and on the examination It tamed oat that a son of Nnezf, named Claudio, was implicated In the scheme of assassinating Gonzales. The latter, from motives of friendly consideration for the father, wrote to the elder Nuezf to the effect t aut as Ills son's name had been connected with the plot of 1'aradla, he should be glad to see the boy and have the matter properly cleared up. Nuezt answered that his son could not and would not come. Gonzales made a second request, Intimating to Nuezl that If he did not send his son he should be obliged to have him arrested? a proceeding he desired to avoid for old acquaintance sake. No reply came, but In place thereef news reached Governor Gonzales that Nuczt had gone into the country, and proceeded to gather men to march on I'orto Plata. He succeeded in assembling forty and approached this town. At a distance of about four or live hours (that's the way they me asure space in this country), where, being met by the soldiers of the government, under Gonzales, they were dispersed ignomlnlously, the government troops taking about Ave or six prisoners, whs declared that they had been misled by General Nuezl, who. In calling them out, pretended that he was complying with government orders. The men who escaped presented themselves subsequently and declared that they, ton, had bceu misled. Nuezl, his three sons nnd two more men remained In the meantime hid among the woods near Marinolejo. They were actively pursued, and in the middle of last month, being surprised early, before daybreak, they ned almost naked, leaving their arms behind them. The pursuit of Nuezl and his tons was very close?so luuch so that on the night of the 23d of February they made, as It were, one despairing effort by ? eking refuge in the house of Mr. Hamburger, the I ritisli consul, who ou the next morning sent to Governor Gonzales ik>- following letter:? A NOTE I HUM THE BRITISH CON9Cl~ British Vicb Cokeolatb, > Piuciito Plata, Feb Z5, 1873. ' 8111?I have the honor to Inform you that General Juan Nuezl. former ilovcrnor of this city, ami Ills souk.

This document should have been dated the 24th, In place af the 25th. Ou the 230 of February Mr. Hamburger had been conferring with the wife of General Nuezl, promising her protection for ber husband and sous tr they should come to his house. Shortly arti r writing the letter Just quoted, Mr. llamburger called ou Governor Gonzales, and said to him it would be a politic stroke for lilm to make If he would state puoiiclv that ho had been aware the day before that Nuezl aud his sons were coming to seek an asylum at tne British Consul's, to which Gouzalea replied that he could uot tell the public a lie, lor If lie had been aware ol any such tiling he should certainly have taken measures to apprehend them. While this conversation was going on Gonzales sent one of bis aids to ascertain whether the Nuezis were at the British Consulate or Rt Mr. Hamburger's private house. Alter Hamburger had left, and It hail been discovered that Nuezl was at his private residence aud not at the consulate, orders were given to the Alcalde, or Mayor, lo surteund Hamburger's house and demand ol liitn, in the name of the government, the surrender ol Nnezl and his sons. Hamburger re(used to comply, and the Mayor, author, ixed by the Governor, drew the attention of the Consul to the faet that u wide oilfcionce was mad" between his private dwelling pad Iiis Consular olllce. Hamburger tinned round NEW Y< and asked the Hnexla whether they desired to be delivered up, and thev. like sensible people, said they should preler not. There and then the Alcalde drew up a procea verbal, in which no reierence whatever was inade to the British Vice Consulate, as the authorities looked upon that office and the I flair which covered it as being confined to the store | 01 Mr. Hamburger, Wi re the archives of the office and the British coat 01 arms are deposited. Here and here alone was the representation of British nationality recognized. From time Immemorial in l'uerto I'latu all lorelgners, lay and official, have enjoyed the right ol hoisting their national colors, but this right did not imDly that under the flag above any private dwelling traitors to the government of the couutry. amenable to local laws, could find refuge and laugh established authority to scorn. While the prows vertxil was being drawn up Mr. Hamburger closed all the windows and doors of his house, leaviug the Alcaide waiting outside. TUB OONSrL'8 HOrSK FORCIBLY KNTIRRP. The latter, according, to the legal iorinality In such cases, thrice summoned the Consul to surrender up tho reiugees, and, leccivlng no answer, had one wing of tho entrance door unhinged. Whereupon, accompanied by a guard, he entered the dwelling aud made prisoners of tho three Nuezls. As thev were being taken awav in custody the Consul said to them, "Fear nothing; I'll save you." The Alcalde sent to have the door repaired, but his polite conslderatiou was rejected. Next day the Alcalde went again to the house and lclt a copy of the pmv.t verbal, and again ottered to repair the door, hut in vain. Nuezl and his sons were taken to the fort, and there confineu in irons. One ol the sons on being brought up lor examina nun uecmreu mm. iiih lainrr wan ii|ipustiu iu mo Humana lease, and nad ileturnnneil to oppose it tiy physical force. "Anil now," sad (Jovernor Gonzales, In concluding the narrative of tins transaction, "tho opposition on the part of Nuezt to the 8atnana lease is the most surprising part of nis conduct, because two yenrs ago, when annexation was up, Nuczl was Its supporter. He has been always more or less fidgety, bur. there was a general disposition to overlook Ills* eccentricities and deal and speak kindly with the old man. To help him out of embarrassment I advanced him five months of my pay. When the Sainana Hay scheme was published he wrote me a letter, in which he declared that such a measure would be the salvation of the country. The real reason of Ills course was an Insatiable love for 0006. He wanted to be Governor again, and the only way that occurred to hltn of reaching the posttiou was by revolution. In case the law had its way he would have been shot. As the case stands now I await instructions from St. Domingo." There you have the story of this difficulty, as told by Governor Gonzales. Vim nniTISH CONSUL'S VERSION OK TTIB AKKAIR. lint the version Mr. Hamburger gives ol the atlair and the light In which he placeB it go a long way to allow that the officials of this government, of tlu9 ridiculous parody of a republic, are as ignorant as they are urbttrary. Having heard Gonzales, and given Ids Hide of the story exactly aa he stated It, 1 called on Mr. Hamburger, the British I'oouiil III flip ponrao rif rnnviirniit.lnn lip siiid. tn reference to this ailair, that on the night of the 23d of February, about ten o'clock, General Nuezl and hi < two aona called at his houae and asked permission to enter, a request which was Immediately granted, lor Nuezi was an old acquaintance, who for three ycarH had boen Governor of Puerto Plata to the entire satisfaction of both the native and foreign population. He was a man universally liked, hut not being in harmony with Mr. iiaez 011 the subject of annexation he was removed to give place to the present Governor Gonzales. The day following his coming to the house of Mr. Hamburger the latter, complying with tho custom In non cases, wrote to the Governor Baying that Nnezl and his sons were stopping at his house, claiming the protection of the British tlag. To this the Consul received no reply; but during the day the Alcalde called at his house with a civic and mili ary guard and made a demand lor the surrender of the refugees, with which the Consul rcfuaed to comply. The Alcalde retired twice, and on his third appearance, despite the protestations of Mr. Hamburger, tho door of Ids house was forcibly unhinged and the guard entered and took away the refugees to the lort. "The Alcalde," Raul Mr, namburger, "feeling that he waH committing a wrong act, aud perhaps, also, out or regard lor myself personally, declined at first to pass across the threshold of the house, ami the policemen showed the same reluctance to enter. The house was surrounded by soldiers, and the street m front was full of armed men." TUB OUTRAGE DIRECTED BY MINISTER (URIEL. While the Alcalde was debating in his mind whether to enter or not, Minister Curie!, one of the Bacz Cabinet, who is now travelling in these parts representing the Executive, came on the scene and commanded the soldiers, in peremptory la? guairc, in go miu me uoiihb huh urug uui me ruiugecs. Finding some hesitation on the part of tho oillcer In command, lie took, with Ids own hands, and actually pushed tho soldiers Into the house, though the Rrtilsh nag was flying overhead. Gonzales at the last moment felt that he was doing something not altogether right, but Cartel, the Minister of Finance, Insisted that the Consulate should be entered and Kttezl and his sons dragged ont ot there. Mr. Hamburger in the meantime called a meeting of all the iorelgn Consuls, who unanimously endorsed tho course he had taken in the matter. Gonzales must have been convinced that he committed a blunder, for ever since he has been laboring to convince the Iorelgn population that his action was right, and he Is never tired dwelling on tho distinction that tho oftlce, and not the private bouse, Is alone the place sheltered by a Consular flag. lie says all the foreign residents venioy the privilege of hoisting the flags of their respective countries; but that does not give them the right to make their houses an asylum for enemies 01 the government. Ht forgets, however, that It is oulv the merchant flags which can thus be used, and that 11 any one raises the fegnlarly recognized Aug of F.ngland other than the Consul, he can be compelled to haul it down in double quick trme. Then, as to the private house not being covered by the flag, Mr. Hamburger says he shonld like to know where a British subject would be likely to look for bis Consul In the early morning or at night when his store Is closed up. At his private bouse he has always received official visitors. It was there President Baez came when he was here on his travels. It would be there the commauder of a British vessel would naturally go to see or to confer with the Consul. The honse was recognized as his by the Dominican authorities in Porto Plata, and they were well aware he had but one residence. The flagstaff stood there, and the flng, If not always flying, was ever ready to be hoisted over It. A HTRONO POINT POK TIIK BRITISH. In giving shelter to Nuczl he was only perform lng au act which has been dono a hundred tines over In simitar cases. Kvtry single man now in the government or Baez, and Iiaez himself, has been given shelter under the flag of one consulate or the other. Curlel, who pushed the soldiers into Mr. Hamburger's house, has been three times given consular protection. Baez would have been hauged by the mob in St. Domingo city in I860 but ror the protection given him by Mr. Gambits. the French Consul, who not only sheltered him lrom the fury of the populace, but escorted him down to a schooner and saw him salely out of the country. Gonzales to-morrow might be flying for his life, and the flrst place he would be apt to seek would be the private house of some ot the consuls. In this country the consular residence has always been looked upon us a sacred retreat, and the feelings or the foreign and or all the thinking native population have been grievously incensed at this outrage on the part of tne authorities. Mr. Farrlngton, ex-B'itish Consul, has had us many as twenty refngees under his roof at one time. In. times of revolution here guilty and innocent are alike exposed to the vengeance of the triumphant party, and it is more a question of humanity than of law to shield those who are helpless and Innocent from the bloodthirsty madness of the hour. Alter this occurrence had taken place the anniversary of the Republic?the 27th of February? caine on for celebration, and all the Consuls were were Invited by the Governor to be present at the "Te ileum" and afterwards nartako of lunch at the Government House. With the exception of the American and Danish Consuls, all the rest declined to attend, in order to mark their censure of the t'burse taken towards one of tnclr number and towards the flag he represented. At this the Governor was sorely annoyed. He made a speech to the people who did attend, Justifying his action, and again, for the one hundredth time, drawing the absurd distinction between the house and the store ol the Consul. BAKZ'S HORRIBLE PRISON. Anxious to see the victims of this over-zealons government 1 paid a visit to the fort, which stands out at the end of a promontory which encloses the harbor to the right of the town. In a previous letter I gave a slight sketch of the prison, but no words or mine can convey any Idea of its utterly revolting character. There is nSthlng in New York or uuywliere else In America to whicn I can liken It, and I am sanguine there is no prtsen In Europe at the present day so vile and toi bidding. The prison was formerly a powder magaslne and consists of a ecu underground, faintly lighted, and ventilated from & hole In the floor of the fort overhead. Having waited until my eyea got accustomed to the gloom, and tho horrible smalls passing out through the barred entrance nad lost their flrst sickening tnnuence, I ooun ted thirty-one men In a space about twelve feet by twenty-eight. The niajsrlty were half Dinea iu me buiiiuh urm nmi sieacn, ana were literally piled on each other over the floor. Near the end of the dnngeon, where a ray of light from the hole overhead struggled with the darkness, an Kngllah-speaklng prisoner pointed me out the figure of OLP MAN Nl'IZT, lying on the floor chained, and near by his two sons, fastened In a similar niunner. I thought of the dungeons of Naples, and felt that the memory of King Bombs has been overmuch maligned, for he never pretended he was the ruler of a republic, and his inhumanity and his crimes were never wrought In the name of freedom, like t he punishment this old man, but recently the honored and beloved Governor of this district, and for whom people wept aloud In the streets as he was dragged lri>m under the roof of the British Consul and carried to the fatal fort, were some of the very worst criminals, red-handed murderers and outlaws of society arc Incarcerated. Filth and all unclcaniiesH were his companions, and the miserable food he received was only tit lor hogs. He was suffering Iroin a chronic complaint of t lie Intestines, , and his worn fiv e plainly indicated that much more confinement would put linn past the troubles of i this woarv world. Through the kindness of a fellow prisoner, whose Knglish, without being perfect, was at least plain. I entered Into conversation with the old man. I In u sired what was the motive of hid goipg mto [)RK HERALD, FRIDAY", acts of hostility to the government, and tie answered that he was anxious to have llbeity of expression in the vote concerning the Samana sale. Had lie succeeded in capturing i'orto Plata the sense 01 the people would have been freelv given on the question of renting Sainuna Ha? to the Americans. They would not have been dragooned to vote (or the Haez measure, and if the pressure bad been taken off a majority would have been lound against it. Every man wtio voted did so in dread ol the consequences of recordiug hiinseli in opposition to the govemmeut wishes. Only one or two had the tenierltv to say "no," but they were rneie lads and their conduct was overlooked, tie was OI'l'OSKD TO T1IK UAKZ ADMINISTRATION because he believed it was composed of a set of thieves, and Haez was the biggest thlel of the lot. The country would never receive any benefit Irom the money paid by the Americans. It would all go into the pockets 01 Haez and his associates, but principally of Haez. He should like to know where all the money went that Haez got Irom time to tune to carry on the government. There was none of It expended for the good ol the couutry, and the soldiers were hah starving. Haez not only sold the Republic, but he has also cheated the Americans, and before long they will find that they had the worst of tho bargain. Cabral may be over the border any day, and Haez, with lus pockets lull of money belonging to the people, wtli retire to Europe. He (Nuezlj insisted the people were not in favor or giving up Samana to the Americans, and as that was his way of thinking he determined to make a protest, and he made It with a few men In the Held; but if his friends had only known ol it in time, he could have carried out his purpose. 'I he people up towards Monte Chrlsto. who have had no rain In two vears. were perishing of the drought, and why was it that noue of the money of the liaes government has been given to help them f If the government only Htartcd a movement to succor these poor people the rest ol the country wonld come to their assistance; but these lellows are only thinking of themselves, and thinking of how much they can make while they are in power. Here the oitlcers of the fort came np and the conversation was brought to an end; but, brief us it was, it seemed to have given the old man a relief to unbosom himself. T1IB B1UTIH1! CONSUL GENERAL NOTIFIED. Immediately alter the outrage on his nag Mr. Hamburger sent a schooner to Cape Haytl with a despatch stating the circumstances of the case, to be forwarded to the Consul General, Mr. St. John, at Port au Priuoo. The schooner returned last Monday and reported that the letter had been forwarded to its destination. Cp to date?8th of March?no reply lias been rocoived, hut one is momentarily expected in the shape of the appearance otT the harbor ot a llritlsh man-of-war. All the loreigners expect that the release of the prisoners will be at once demanded, and, further, that the dismissal ol Gonzales and Ourlel will be exacted of the President, who will comply without delay. THE SAMANA BAY SCHEME WORKING MISOIIIKP. People say that a vague idea filled the mlnu of Gonzales that the country was more or less under the protection ot the I'nited Stares, aud that he could treat the Hag of England with indifference. it ih ciioiigni ine recent event couiu never nuvo happened If the American irovernment had not shown more or less of an Interest in the island, and filled Dominicans with the notion that the Stars and Stripes were ever ready to interpose on their behalf. They are as yet unable to comprehend that the samana Hay Company is a purely private commercial speculation, having no greater claim on the protection and interposition of the American government than any private scheme of a commercial character. Many ol them believe the United States have taken Samaua, or that it will ultimately step In and annex the whole Island. The Consul General of England, at Port-au-Prince, is opposed to the samana enterprise, and so are most of the foreign consuls here, and us Gonzales represents the government which has favored and brought about this concession to Americans, he has littlo sympathy to expect trom the Hritish, who will be hound to proceed against him with merciless promptitude. Curiel, the Minister of Finance, is the greatest ass I ever met filling a position of un.v importance. Hae/. wants no more astute person to attend to the financial affairs of the country, and these affairs it Is needless to add are in a condition of the most inextricable confusion. Gonzales is to be pitted, for I think if ho had been better advised?and ho is not deal to good advice?he woultrhave saved himself irom the trouble which is now pending over him. As the Spanish steamer is expected immediately I cannot lorwaru me news 01 me arrival 01 me uriiun inanor-war, lor she 1ms not yet put In an appearance, and of the course her commander may take; but she may couie In at any hour and short, sharp and decisive will be the style of settling the difficulty on hand. Barz Approves the Outrage?*Cabral on the Border with a Force of Ilaytlans. Porto Plata, March 10,1873. The SpanlBh steamer has not come as expected, but the English steamer Arno, Captain Dicks, for St. Thomas, Is iu the harbor and leaves early la the morning. I have been up to the government house and they tell me despatchea have been received by the Governor lrom 81. Domingo City approving his course and ordering the transfer of the prisoners to the capital. They go to-night under a strong guard. This makes the muddle worse and worse. A gentleman named Nones, from St. Thomas, belonging to the well known Arm of Hurtslg A Co., came here by the English steamer to collect some debts from the firm of Nlcmaun A Co., in which Gonzales is a partner, but, on the pretext that his Arm supplied material to the fiiibnaterer Luperon, he has been ordered to quit, and he has returned to the steamer alter a five, minutes' stay in the town. Cabral is reported on the border with a large llaytiau lorce. 1 am trying to get around and see that fugitive genius, but tho prospect la not encouraging. SAHARA SUMMARIZED. Two Ptlgrtms heft on the Shores of the Bay?The Win and Witching Fabeni and HI* Remarkable Son?What the Weit India Company Hai Not Done. Sam an a, 8t. Domingo, Feb. 21, 1873. I hare taken my last surrey of tills future settlement of American Industry and enterprise, walked for the lllty-flrst and final time through the village of Santa Barbara, shaken hands with the two forlorn pilgrims, last of my promising eolony, for wnom 1 had predicted a happy and auriferous future, and packed up my traps for au Indefinite journey across the country without a single emotion or regret at leaving this extremely stupid place. Uy pilgrims are gone, the Lord knows where, and out of the twenty-three who left New York with high hopes and boundless Imaginations 1 see but two on the shores of Samana. They will cultivate the farinaceous plantations and nurse the sweet banana, and I only hope their lives may be as peaceful aud beautiful as the shores ol the bay whereon they*have cast their lot. In the transfer of Samana there was no ceremony. The surrender of the bay and peninsula was given at St. Domingo City when the #150,000 In gold (the yearly rent) was delivered over to Baez, and as that was all Baez cared for, he was Indifferent to anj ceremonial in ine manor 01 surrendering up the property. JOE FABKNS, Tit* WONPKRFtT.. Fabens Is now the sapient Governor of Samana. He is a man of peace, but should occasion demand of htm an exhibition of bclllgereacy he can call npon his remarkable son Joe, a Christian youth, with a tremendous capacity for mild lemonade and ship biscuit, ou which he cherishes the hope of being one day President of St. I>ouungo. Joe is not wisely silent, like hts father, and therefore It is that, when he makes his best effort to secure admiration of his transcendent genius, he meets only with derisive applause. Kat>ens and Samana are identical, now many lots the handsome Governor owns is not for me to say, oecause I don't know,nor does anybody else; hut then he is a good fellow, they say, and above all he Is a wise looking man, who, for aught oeople may be aware of, carries in his head the solution of that bothersome problem of perpetual motion. Santa Barbara, or "Stockwdl," as it Is proposed to call it (great Jebediah, what a contrast of names!!, would be a pleasant place in which to live, if there was a broad road built, along by the water's edge; If the sunken valley to the left of the town were drained and tilled up, and the bttgbear of chills and lever banished; If the streets were graded and guttered, and a society of a lew hundred decent Americans introduced. As it stands I have no craving desire to pass my existence there; but I have no doubt, now that the transfer Is made, that the wealthy West India Company will make this place blossom as the rose, and several years hence nobody will recoirntze the present town of Santa Barbara, so mucU wnl iC be altered tor the bettor. tub futubb of ttib etti.kmknt.

A great many people are bound to come here when It Is in operation as a Dec port, and 1 am Informed nothing but Sumana la now debated throughout the West India Islands. The managers or this enterprise have It within their power to make banana either a magnificent success or a most deplorable failure. So lar they have done nothing to meet general expectation except to erect a hotel at a place where nobody will care to go, even though it commands a view of most extensive proportions. if they were in dead earnest they would have chartered an extra steamer and sent down a Corps or men to lay out the tow u, organize a government, employ laborers to till up the swamp and he at work Instanter In every direction, for there are hundreds oi people anxious to come here: hut Where's the use so long as they see nothing hut the one old sleepy village of snnta Barbara, where nothing can he found to attract the attention of the most desperate speculatornothing but mud when It rams and nothing hut dust ami clulncsswhen It docs not?

LITERARY CHIT-CHAT. Sir John Sinclair, M. P., Is preparing for the press a book on the late Franco-German war. It Is to he published simultaneously In English, French and German.

This negative assurance would be more satisfactory If Pitt had completed It by confiding to Lord Aberdeen the real name of the author.

It says the author "is not a first rate periorroer, and, Indeed, we should be disposed to say that he Is not second rate; but i 'Mnror Affflin ' thnnrrh rathnr 1?n? anrl mno.h nf It decidedly tiresome, may be read with Interest by any one who does not expect too much."

Neither sheep larming, cattle raising, mining, agricnltnre, nor commerce presents openings to tempt an Englishman. No doubt a great deal of money has been made in Mexico, Brazil and the old Spanish colonies of South America, and no doubt there is a great deal more to btf made there; but those countries are still enveloped in the golden haze of their former reputjjlon?a reputation founded much on fact and tery much more on fable. A Berlin Clkrgyilan, the Rev. D. A. Rosenthal, has undertaken to form a gallery of all the converted of the nineteenth century.

MEDICAL COLLECE FOR WOMEN* The Commencement Exercises at Association Ikail l>ast Night?Conferring ol Degrees Upon Nine Ijadtes. The tenth annual Commencement exercises ol the New York Medical College for Women, 187 Second avenue, corner Twelfth street, was held last night at Association Ilall. There was a large audience. composed for the greater part or friends and relatives of the graduating members. The piatlorin was prettily decorated with (lowers, and many of the ladles in the audience held bouquets In their liamls. The nine ladies who composed the graduating class were seated In front. They were modestly dressed in i>iacn. Mrs. u. s. Lozier, m. u., the Dean of the College, read the annual report. She said the college hail already conferred degrees upon sixty-four graduates. Nine or them were to receive their degrees this evening. All the former graduates of the college who were now practising medicine were doing credit to the Institution. Most of them were receiving more than a bare support. One young lady who graduated recently reported that her Income had been last year $1,000. Tne time would soon be when the trammels of sex would no longer be barriers to the highest Intellectual development of women. She remembered with pride how much women had done for the science of mediclue. She thought it was hut fair that as women were doing so much for men's colleges the gentlemen ought to do something lor this college for women. (Laughter and applanse.) All that was wanted was $loo,t)00. This amount would establish the college on a firm basis. The Kev. Henry Towers delivered an address. Mr. De Cordova made a few humorous remarks. Ho said 100 years ago such a meeting would have Deon impossible, but 100 years lie nee it would be considered scandalous tbat the right of women to devote themselves to this noble profession could over have been doubted. He said there were three classes or ladies?the high-toned, the low-toned and the semi-toned. The high-toned ladies who lolled on solas and cultivated lap-dogs and read novels had told him that tnese pursuits were "too masculine" lor vuneu. He asked, "Why too masgulineT" (Imitating n whine.) "Because they wero masculine." (Applause.) This was their answer. He believed that women should enter any profession they liked and be done with It. Some people said that "women should stick to their mission." This was one or the most effective words in newspapers, lie had seen nurses lu the chamber of sickness; but where the woman stood he hail seen a ministering angel without wings, and disease bud to fly before her. (Applause from the ladles.) He said to women, Ood speed you and bless yon. anil he asked them not to be too hard upon men If they were called to attend them?although men had given tin in provocation enough. (Laughter.) Miss Souiniervllle sang a pretty song, and de grecs were then conferred upon the following graduates:?Misses Mary W. Noxon, New York, Emma M. Btlles, Montclair, N. J.; lleorgla Merri mini, Ohio; I..

The Ivrnsctt Picture*. All the evenings of next week are to be devoted, at Association Hall, to the sale of pictures by the late John F. Kensett. The pictures are more than Ave hundred in number, and comprise specimens ol somo of Kensett's best works. We have never seen any collection which presented so vast and triumphant a view of the powers of any one artist. Mr. Kensett'B sympathies were true and profound. He loved almost all the aspects of nature, and his soul was fmnrcpnatnd with the rleh and delicate tints that are found In glowing sunrise and sunsets, forests tangled with shadow, glittering mists, and quaint, moss covorcd labyrinths. The present exhibition which Is held In the Academy of Design, Is entirely free. It is a wonderful evidence of his industry, enthusiasm and skill. Kensett was a genius in one of the purest and best senses of that term. His heart was largo enough to sympathize over the sliilts and miseries which beset the artistic "potboiler," while his talents and his opportunities were so largo iis to lilt him completely above such necessities hlmscir. He plodded none the less for enjoying so large a measure of Inspiration, lie depended not on moods, but on method; Sainted in season and out of season, and may e said to have answered death's call with the brush and palette in hand. Wc arc not surprised at the vast extent of labor of which the present exhibition Is a specimen. The lesult of his last three months' work is quite enough to make every student of thenwyield him profound homage. A lew pictures by ^hcr artists are found interspersed among those of Kensett. Thus we find the names bfMlguot, Gray, Cliatnpncy, Litschauer, Dears, Benson, Gude, luness, Wyant, Carter, Morgan, Long, Gilford, Leutze, Lambdin, Loop, Waldo, Greer, Baker, La Fargc, Anderson, Kossiter, Gay, Eastman Johnson, Bougliton, Poldo, Bridges, 1'ape, Suydam and Cast'.car. The whole proportion of Interpolated pictures, however, is very small. One of the rooms at the Academy of Design Is occupied by Kensett's last three months' stndles, and among these arc incorporated lils private collection of pictures by contemporary artists. The pictures in this room will not be put into the sale, but books of subscription will be opened to obtain the amount of $20,000 to purchase a selectlou or Mr. Kensett's works, to bo placed, with his collection by contemporaneous artists, in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Among so many splendcd specimens of Kensett's gentTs us arc to bo tound In the larger rooms ol the Academy of Design, it seems almost Impertinent to particularize.

Deadly Effects of the Peaoe-atAny-Price Polloy. Arizona Unmolested While Unele Sam Is Em> broiled with the Sister Republic. Sacred Reservations the Elysium for Robbers and Assassins. TUCSON, Arizona, Feb. 24,1873. The Indian troubles In this portion of the country have at Inst been nearly settled, thanks to the energetic and untiring action of General Crook, who lias succeeded In establishing a tranquillity and peace never before enjoyed by the settlers In tills frontier State. At present we hear of no Indian troubles, and as the military are on tho alert, moving about in small parties, they constitute a chock on the marauding savages. COCHISE AND HIS MURDEROl'S BAND IN MEXICO. Although Arizona is tolerably free from Indian raids, our Mexican cousins from the borders of Sonora send up a dismal wail und a heartrending account of raids recently perpetrated on their country by the renowned Cochise and his band of Apaches, renegades, Ac. This is a question that cannot fail to bring about rattier unpleasant relations between Uncle Sam and the Mexican government, as although the clause In the treaty ceding over territory In Arizona, which made the United States responsible for the damage done in Mexico by Arizona Indians, has been rescinded, It is hardly fair or equitable that Mr, Cochise should be placed on a reservation bordering upon Sonora, with lull permission to commit what depredations he may fancy to indulge in on the Mexican side of tho line, and to be free from all military or civil interference as long as Arizona is left in peace. HOW THE APACTIES CAN DEFY TIIB MILITARY. When General O. O. Howard paid his last visit to Arizona he concluded a treaty with Cochise which placed that enterprising chief on a reservation ol his own choosing, within the State of Arizona, and nearly adjoining the Sonora line. Within the limits of that reservation Cochise Is free from all interference, as he is protected by the Indian Bureau, and ueneral Crook or bis troops dare not trespass within its boundary. This reservation embraces a portion of the richest part of southern Arizona, and forms a highly advantageous headquarters from which to despatch the marauding expeditions ol the enterprising Cochise. A little dash into Arizona is easily made, and the blame thrown on Borne other tribe, as, within the limits of his reservation, Mr. Cochise is on sacred ground that the military dare not prospect. COCHISE ON SACRED GROUND. Again, the neighboring State of Sonora forms a highly Interesting field for the exercise of tno belligerent and thieving propensities for which Mr. Cochise is renowned. General Crook has succeeded In completely subduing the warlike Indians ol Arizona, with the exception of Mr. Cochise, who, on his reservation, lorms a shining light of the wisdom of the peace policy now being adopted by the colporteur division of the administration. Every ( day brings news from Sonora of fresh raids, new murders, horses and cattle stolen, houses and villages burned, Ac., and if it is policy to depopulate Sonora General O. O. Howard has made a decided success, as the settlers on the borders are rapidly emigrating to moro peaceful climes and giving undisputed possession to the victorious Cochise. THE PRESIDENT AFRAID OF HIM. Nothing is known exactly of Cochise's movements except what comes from the Mexican border; but he was recently interviewed in regard to the treaty he made with General O. O. Howard, and stated that he understood he was the Big Chief of the country, as the President was so afraid of him that be sent a general officer to make peaoe with him on his own terms. This treaty, he says, protects and feeds him while he raids on the Mexicans, an<} keeps him perfectly safe ub long as he leaves Arizona in peace. This reservation also gobbles up a large portion of a public highway between New Mexico and Arizona, and thus forces travellers to take a circuitous route. This last point reminds one of a similar move made by Yin cent uoujer, aooui a year ana a nan ago, wuen ne laid oat a reservation for the Wallapal Indiana, which took in a large portion of a public highway. The Bame influence which Baatains General 0. 0. Howard la also hard at work endeavoring to segregate the White Mountain, Grant and Cochise reservations, together with the posts of Apache and Howie, from Arixona to New Mexico, to carry out the policy of civilising those Indians who have never known a peace which did not countenance the ibfcbing and plundering of Mexicans and Arlzonians. PROBABLE TROUBLE WITH MEXICO. General Crook has succeeded in bis efforts to subdue the hostile Indians In Arizona, and for the first time since the settlement of that State the settlers experionce a sense of security hitherto foreign to them; but they cannot help viewing with alarm the position and pi ivileges granted to Cochise and his band. Cochise's reservation is now the rendezvous for all the renegade Indiana ana for other hostile Indians that have been whipped by General Crook and broken np Into small bands. Cochise's position enables him to raid on Mexicans and return to his reservation without iet or hinderance from an} authority in Arizona or eliewhere. It Is very evident that such action must eventually disturb our relations with Mexico, and it will probably result in a scries of reprisals on the part of the Mexicans. As it is, large claims have already been presented in Washington by Mexlcaus for damages done in Sonora by Arlzoulan Indians. Granting even that the clause of y the treaty bearing upon that particular point has been cancelled, the glaring Impropriety of locating the most hostile band of Indians that we nave on mo Mexican ooruer is manuesuy apparent, ana would not be tolerated by any other government on the face of the earth. Cochise himself believes, and said in a recent Interview, that as long as he docs not raid upon Americans he compiles with bis agreement with General Howard. I.KT HOWARD WHIP 1IIM INTO SU&nCCTION. The isolated location ol his reservation prevent* any one froiu ascertaining to what extent he raida upon Aiizona even, as he can with perfect impunity carry ont an expedition of the kind, return to | the security of his reservation and lay the blame upon other tribes of Indians now In proper subjection. There only appears to be one way to do tu?tlce to our neighbors, the Mexicans, and that Is to allow General Crook to carry out the operations he has so successfully commenced, and, instead of holding him in check when three-quarters flnished. give him the power to bring Cochise to terms and place him on a reservation, where his movements cnu uv waicueu oy wie uinimrj nun iub suirvunaIng country preserved irom his marauding un<l plundering raids.
