Yoar^soxrespondent at Havana writes to me as follows concerning the arrest of the Hp.rat.d Special Commissioner, Mr. James J. 0' Kelly, at Manzanillo: ? THE SPANIARDS AND CONSULAR LIBERTY. Havana, April 5, 1873. The delay in learning of 0' Kelly's arrest will be traced to its canse in what I now set forth. A SUPPRESSED TELEGRAM. Mr. Louten, the British Vice Consul at Manzanillo, writes to Mr. Kamstlei^ the Brit ish Vice Consul at Santiago de Cuba, that he telegraphed on the 31st of March, five days ago, the following message to him: ? "Telegraph to the British Consnl General, Dunlop, that O' Kelly, the New York Herald's Commissioner, has been arrested here. He asks assistance from yon (Bamsden) and from the American Consul. LOUTEN." TREACHERY SOMEWHERE. Mr. Bamsden adds in his telegram to Con sul General Dnnlop that he never received this telegram, which Bhows plainly that the authorities at Manzanillo did not allow its transmission. mr.RAT.T> DESPATCHES STOPPED. It is very probable that telegrams to me have also been intercepted. THE NEWS IN SPITE OP THE SPANIARDS. Consul General Dunlop, immediately after receiving the telegram, sent for me and com municated 0' Kelly's arrest, which was the first intimation I had of the act. A SPANIARD'S WORD OF HONOB ! In giving you an account of my interview with Captain General Ceballos yesterday I omitted to state that I reminded him of his promise in regard to O' Kelly's only being expelled in case of returning within the Span ish lines. HOW IT MAT BE QUALIFIED. To this the Captain General replied that he only gave me this assurance in case O'Kelly was not found guilty of being in connivance with the insurgents and that he could prove his neutrality while among them. This, how ever, THE CAPTAIN GENERAL DID NOT STATE in the interview I refer to, when I first ques tioned him in regard to the fate of O' Kelly upon his return to the Spanish lines. On being reminded of this he said it was very natural to suppose that a military inquiry would take place upon O' Kelly's return. CONSULAR INTERVENTION. I saw the British and American Consuls last night, and both will use their good offices with the authorities. I have also telegraphed to Mr. Ycmug, the American Consul at San tiago de Cuba, but have received no reply. It appears as though telegram a tn are .with held.

Havana, April 6, 1873. I have had nothing farther direct aboat O'Kelly. Indirectly we have been informed that, in the preparatory proceedings of the Court, O'Kelly had refused to answer all ques tions or declare anything ; that the Captain General was consulted by telegraph, and ho replied telling the Court to continue its pro ceedings according to the prescriptions of the law and not consult him any further. A SPANISH COWARD* 8 WEAK INVENTION. The following malicious paragraph appears in the Diario to-day in its New York corres pondence, and at this juncture makes an un favorable impression: ? "I have the moral oonviction that the object of O'Kclly's mission was to carry ad vices to the insurgents and post them re garding the filibustering projects concocting im this country. This is nothing more than to continue what Henderson began, and it will be observed that after the interview the latter held with Agramonte, the insurgents have shown more activity and pertinacity in their operations. To leave the inland is easy enough; but to reach .the rebels offers many difficulties. Only on such a pretext as that of Henderson and O'Kelly can verbal counsel and plans of action, which study of the question in the United States gives rise to, be taken with impunity to the insurgents, in order that their movements may be in con cert with the plans of the laborantes." Outrage oa Americana at Santiago de Cuba? Deserting Sallora Arrested In a Boat aa Rebels? Refusal to Allow the American Consul Youiig at the Trial? A Firm and Manljr Protest. Ket West, April 7, 1873. The following from your correspondent at Havana illustrates the extremity of O' Kelly's danger, and the necessity of prompt action in some direction: ? THE SPANIARDS AND THE AMERICAN CONSUL. Havana, April C, 1873. Private advices from Santiago de Cuba re port a difficulty of the American Consul with the authorities. On the night of the 11th ult. THREE BAILOBS DESERTED from the American bark Union, taking one of tho ship's boats and starting off to westward. The master of the vessel reported the desertion to the Consul, who, as is the usual custom, made application to the Captain of the Port for their arrest When thirty-six hours out the men in the boot were picked up by the Spanish steamer Cantabro and brought back to Santiago de Cuba, and then delivered over to the authorities for trial, as the captors ar rived at the gratuitous conclusion that their intention was to get into the insurrection. A COURT MABTIAX. BEING ORDERED in the case, Lieutenant Colonel Beedno, the Fiscal, or prosecutor, commenced to take tho declarations of the men, but was interrupted by Consul Young, who made his appearance and demanded th? right to be present during , the examination. This was refos?4 him, whereupon the men refused to answer and Mr. Young PB9TE8TED AGAINST ANY FUBTHEE PBOCEEDINGS. This nonplussed the Fiscal, and he folded up his papers, wiped his pen and retired to advise with his superior, the Governor. The wires were set working, and the Captain General ordered the trial to go on, saying the Consul had no right to be present, whereupon the Governor arose, BEGGED 2IB. YOUNG TO WITHDRAW HIS PBO TEST, not to bother them with making any compli cations, and also, for obvious reasons, he de clined to state the charges against the men. He summoned the master, mate and another seaman to appear the following day. The Consul accompanied the master and the others to be present at the examination ; but the same objections being raised ho repeated his protest A HIGH-HANDED AEBE8T. Mr. Young has in his office as clerk a young man who is the son of the government in terpreter, and both he and his father aro now under arrest for having, it is charged, ADVISED MB. YOUNG 07 WHAT WAS GOING ON. Consul General Torbert has instructed Mr. Young to insist upon being present at the trial of the sailors, and on no account to withdraw his protest The Key West Cuban Colony Agi tated? A Meeting Calling on tbe Gov. eminent to Intervene. Key West, April 7, 1873. Leading Cubans here express the gravest anxiety regarding 0* Kelly's safety. The declaration of the Captain General is regarded as dangerously significant There are two monitors here that ought to be good argu ments in case the Court of Inquiry has any doubts. A CUBAN MEETINO. There is a meeting of the Patriotic Society to-night to take action in regard to O'Kelly's arrest &nd to ask action .from this govern ment VIEWS IN WASHINGTON ON THE I ARREST. Caleb Cmhlng, Secretary Flab, General Hutler, Admiral Polo, tbe Spanish min ister, and Senator Sumner on O'Kelly and Cuba? Cheerful Views. Washington, April 7, 1873. The sews of tbe capture of the city of Man canlllo by the Cuban insurgents ant the report of the arrest or James 3. O'Keiiy, the special Herald commissioner to Cuba, ay the Spanish authorities, are two events which have attracted more than passing netice among prominent persons in this city. The boldness of the first and the audacity of the second have awakened new interest in the cause of Cuba Libre in Washington. It has many friends here, sincere sympathizers, and, whatever may be said to the contrary, none more zealous individually than the President and Secretary of State. TUB INFORMATION RECEIVED HERB LAST NIGHT was to the eiTeet that O'Keiiy had been captured with documents pertaining to the movement of the insurgents, and this bit of news, fallowing so closely the despatches of the day be lore that .Manzanlllo had fallen Into the hands of the pat riots, led some to suppose that O'Kelly was fully apprised of the movement. Then the threats made at the time or his passing beyond the Spanish line, thatiffouad tnerearter He weuid be treated as a spy. served to Intensify ttie merest in the newa Iron Cuba, and to awaken solicitude for the gaiety of the taltblul Herald commissioner. A VISIT TO THE 8TATE DEPARTMENT this afternoon for the purpose or ascertaining what Btep the government would take If the Spanish authorities Insisted on detaining O'Kelly, found Secretary Fish up to his ears in omclal business, accumulated during his recent absence. He had just returned from New York, and expected the President would arrive to-morrow to hold a Cabi net meeting, for which the Secretary waa endeav orlng to prepare, that all pending matters might be disposed of before the President's departure for the West. He was, In the midst of the cares of State, as afflibie und courteous as ever, but begged to be excased from an inter view for the reasons stated. Besides, he could only elve his Individual opinion as to what the govern ment might <lo in the event application was mado for Its interposition. He replied :-"The depart ment never anticipates, but is always ready to act promptly when matters are properly belore It." Rctlrln? wltti the consolation that It Is more pleasant to be refused by some tliau favored by others, the office of calib orsHiNO wasjnext sought to ascertain what views he enter tained on the progress of events In Cuba. In a gecond story room on the sunny side of the build ing occupied by the Mexican Claims Commission, Mr. Gushing was found Immersed In business of the Commission, having resumed the office temporarily vacated by Him during his connection with tho Geneva Tribunal. Uls welcome waa most cordial. A chatty lmtroductory about the enterprise of the Herald, Its daily mass of intelligence forming, IB his opln ion, the most successful newspaper in the world, developed the purpose of the visit to him. In re sponse to the request that he would orv* his views on the condition of affairs In Cuba for the benefit of the readers of the Herald, Mr. Cushing said. 1 think the condition of affairs in Cuba is very critical. * All the great revolutions in Spanish America have been the immediate consequences of revolution in Spain. Mexico, New Granada and the other existing republics broke oif on the occa sion of the invasion of Spain by Napoleon, bo in the case of Cuba THE DETHRONEMENT OP ISABEL was Immediately lollowed by Insurrection in Cuba. Spain has been making enormous eiforts in the expenditure of men and money during three or four years in the vain attempt to wuppress the in surrection, although during the whole period of the government ol the regent Serrano, and since then of the government of Amadeus, Spain, greatly as she was disturbed at home by occasional risings of ultra republicans In the south and of CarHst-a

in the north, still had sufficient command of her domestic resources, especially in the matter of soldiers, to keep up the supply or troops with which to carry on the war in Cuba, while obtaining pecu nlary resources for that parpose by means or loans and taxes In tie Island ltaeir. But It would seem that the republican government la LOSIKO HOLD OF TOE ARMY IN SPAIN, while at the same time the local insurrections, especially on the part of the Carllsts, are more threatening than they were In the time of Serrano and Amadeus. Hence It has been observable that Bince the abdication or Amadeus a relatively smull number of soldiers has been sent to Cuba. At the uHne time It would also appear that the necessity of supplying the place or those killed in battle* or dying or exposure to the climate, would require uninterrupted despatch of troops to Cuba. The diminution or the number of Spanish troops there mav have had much to do with THE RECENT SUCCESSES OF TOE TNSTROENTB, while It Is easv to conceive that the power of the voiuateer troops will have been very much shaken by their participation? in feeling, at least? in the political passion which now convulses Spain. At any rate, It is manifest that It the recent Intelli gence Irons Cuba be well founded the insurgents have taken a great seat In the occupation of the port Manzanillo. Utiiey should be unable to hold it, still they will have obtained by means of even the temporary occupation of Manzanillo a great addition to their military resources in the lorm of arms and powder aud ball, to say nothing of pro visions, clothing, medicines aud other lesser Mili tary supplies. But they may hold it, ami ir they do, tllCnT1JKIR rjipgrENIlENCE IB AK8PKED. The weak point In the political condition or the insurrection has been Its not possessing any sea port, by means or which the leaders could com?'1" nicate with the rest or the world, and receive money aa4 munitions of war. Indeed one u ? serious objections heretofore to recognizing the belligerency ?f the insurgents has been the fact ?f their BEING SHUT CP INLAND, and having no access to. the sea by means of any lortlfled position. With such a port as Mazanlllo, if they can hold it, they will have the first great element of government, which heretofore they have net possessed. New, H In these ctron instances the same political differences which manifest them selves In Spain should make their appear auce In Cuba we may expect movements among the Spaniards there which will powerfully contribute, if not to strengthen the lasargents directly, at least to do so indirectly, BY DIMINISHING TIIB WEAK POWER OF SPAIN. Moreover it may be reasonably expccted that the act of emancipating the slaves at Port* Klco will tell upon this condition of the slaves In Ouoa. Ia view of all these circumstances, It is not rash to assume that we may at a very early day witness Interesting and stirlng events in Cuba. As to O'Kelly, I no NOT BELIEVE THAT HIS I.TFE IS IN ANT DANOER except from what we may call accidents, that is, some act of violence on the part of tke volunteers. No hasty or rash act is to be expected from the Captain General or other superior military officers from Spain. They would not he likely at any time to perpetrate any act of useless violence on the person of an American, and they would be still less likely to do so at the present time when the utmost degree of raUDENC'B AND DISCRETION ABB INCUMBENT UI'ON TURK by reason of the condition of things In Spain. Un less O'Kelly has undertaken to be the bearer of despatches (torn the insurgents on the other bide of the Trocha to their friends on this side ho ' CANNOT BE TKBATKD AS A SPY, and it is not likely that be would consent to be the bearer of despatches between the insurgents, or that any such thing would be asked or expected of him by Cespedes or Agullera. If he has done any such Imprudent tklng as that he may be subjected to detention, as hap pened whenever during our late civil war persons undertook to carry despatches to and from our line and those of the Confederacy without permis sion of the military authorities of the United States. I do not believe that the superior military authori ties of Cuba-would perpetrate, or if they oould pre vent It, would suffer to be perpetrated any act en dangering the life of O'Kelly. If they should under take to try him by military commission, the most unlikely thing, becatise THE MOST ABSURD THING, Vonld be to act with precipitation, so as to prevent interposition in bis behalf on the part of his friends in the United States. It Is to be hoped, therefore, that at worst he may be required to leave the island an4 rcturu to the Culted States, in which case HE WILL BRINO HOME INFORMATION concerning the state oi the Insurrection of great value, and auch as, heretolore, we have hod very little of, and that little as much colored by Spanish sympathy on the one had or insurgent sympathy on the other as to be of very little practical value. TIIB LETTERS OF O'KELLY TO THE HERALD have already been very instructive, and If he returns in Bafety to give a full and fair account of all that he has seen It will bo doing A PRODIGIOUS THING FOR TUB CAUSE OF HUMANITY, as well as for the Herald. Thanking the venerable jurist for his views on the situation fn Cuba, your correspondent bade him good afternoon. GENERAL BUTLER'S YIETT9. It was dusk when the green baize door leading into the oince of Qeneral Butler swung on lis hinges, and your correspondent stood face to lace with the Essex statesman. There was no lack, however, of gas. Strikes are not common in Wash ington. The only thing the people complain of is the poor quality and high rate charged for gas. Tho General was engaged at bis favorite amusement, sucking a Partagas cigar, with the wrong end in ins mouth. Business is business with Mr. Butler, and in reply to the question whether he could submit to an latervlew, hesald It depend ed upon what suoject was to be discussed. "INDBHENDSNT CUBA AND THE FATE OP O'KELLY," said your correspondent. . "Independent Cuoa," exclaimed the GeneraL "What does Cuba want to be Independent for? The fato of O'Kelly; what has happened to him?" These questions were acceptably answered. "What do you think of the success of the Cuban insurgents in capturing the city ol Mauzanillof" asked your correspondent. This was the answer:? "ManzaniUo captured? Oh, I remember readlag something about the sacking of a town of that name not long since. Yes, It was in one of the Sunday papers. The same paper that said I had purchased the Stone farm for $306, ooo. I know the i latter is not true. What do yoo think about the other matter? It la difficult, don't you see, to relf upon newspaper information." The General changed bin attitude, elevated htt slippered feet on a cane bottom chair, took anothef pull at hla Partagas, scanned the columns of th* Herald, and was ready for an answer. "Why," replied your correspondent, "the su<?> cesa of the Insurgents Is confirmed thronilt Spanish sources, giving additional particulars to the news as first received by the Cuban sym pathizers in New York, besides there can b? no doubt of the arrest of Mr. O'Kelly, the 1ekai.d Commissioner. That ntelligence Is confirmed by the Captain General." The General relaxed his hold on the paper, deliberately withdrew his cigar, and* In a friendly manner, expressed great sympathy for the prisoner, DECLARINO THAT OB WOCLD NOT BB JITRT. "You see," continued Mr. Butler, "I do not tako much stock in Cuban matters. Dow long the insurrection has been going ?n I don't know, but among the evidences of tbe prosperity* of the island Is the tact that the sugar increases every year, and tbe exports are new largely la ex* cess of tbe first years of tbe troable." Til SRI CANNOT BE ANT SIRIOU8 DISTURBANCE or decimation of the population by war with sucb signs of prosperity. Yen need not give yourselt any uneasiness about tbe fate of O'Kelly. Tha Spanish authorities will not be unjust, and I havo not tbe slightest doubt bnt that Mr. O'Kelly li AULS TO TAXI CARI OP BIX3ELP." With these words or comfort the interview ended. One or tbe Judges of tbe Supreme Ceurt was an. nounced. The legal luminary waa ushered in, ami your correspondent bowed out. Till SrANISH MINISTER RETICENT. Tour correspondent called this afternoon on Ad miral Polo, the Spanish Minister. In reply to tho question what be thought of Mr. O'Kelly'a arrest j bv the Spanish authorities in Cuba the Admiral re plied:? "The authorities in Cuba have not kept me in | formed of the movements and doings of Mr. O'Kelly. In ract, they have not even mentioned: his name to me. I have only seen a para graph in the Washington papers reporting hi? arrest. Therefore I have no information to give, nor can I express any opinion on the subject; an# were 1 even disposed to say something in regard to Mr. O'Kelly's case I should wait until I get the facts." Tho Spanish Minister dellned to say anything farther on Mr. O'Kelly's arrest, and your corre* spoudent next called on 8KNAT0R STOKER, who proved even more reticent than Admiral Polo.' The great Senator looked better to-day than ho has done for some time, although he is still suffer ing severely frem nervous attack. At his Invita tion this afternoon your correspondent entered hla carriage and took a drive with blm to the Capitol. Speaking or Mr. O'Kelly on the way, Senator Sum ner said : ? "1 do not like to express any opinion about what 1 do not know. Therefore, all I can say regarding Mr. O'Kelly's case is that It is A TWO-EDGED SWORD. It Is a serious thing rer the Spanish authorities to> arrest a foreigner; but is equally serloas for a foreigner to be found under such circumstances. For, as was the case In our own war, he is liablo to be suspected and ill-treated." THE SPANISH CONSUL ON MB. O'KELLY. He Thinks the Herald Commiuloatr Will Wot Be Shot, hut May Be BipelUd. A Herald reporter called oa the Spanish Consul, Mr. lllpollto de llrlarto, yesterday fo ascertain il he had received any additional despatches In regard to tbe arrest of the Hkrald Commissioner to Cabs, Mr. James J. O'Kelly. The Spanish Consul is a large, powerfully built man, with broad shoulders, a fine, manly chest, an open, handsome face, wittt a dark mustache, expressive ?yes of the sama color and a very agreeable, polite manner. "Good morning, sir!" lie exclaimed, as the re^ porter entered his private office. Rbportkr? I have called to see If yon could glvrf' me any Information In regard to the fate ol Mr. O'Kelly ? The Consul (briskly) ?I really don't knew any' thing about it, except what I read in this morning's Herald. This matter 1b entirely ont of my prov ince. I represent the commercial Interests of' Spain here, but have nothing to do with political aiTalrs. I don't want to be mixed up la this matter* Reporter? What will Mr. O' Kelly's rate be? Da you think that he will be shot? The Consul (In a tone of decision) ? I think sot. I think that you need have no appretiension on that score. I do not think that Mr. O'Kelly will bo shot. Bat you sec 1 really don't know anrtbimc definite until you receive more detailed iiilorinu tion. Rbportkr? now came it that Mr. O'Kelly waa arrested ? The Consul?You know what a state or war Is? perhaps he was found by Home small military detachment and they brought him before the near est military chicr. Perhaps tliey found hiai auiwnz the Insurgents? perhaps he win in a very rugged condition and they probably thought he was out] of them. It is impossible to say auythlng deflnna at present. Reporter? Do you think he will be tried by court-martial? The Consul? That depends. If they found papers of the chiefs of the insurrection on him they would probablv try him by court martial? tliey would treat hun an a spy. You sec, as 1 understand It, Mr. O'Kelly was uot sent to be a letter-carrier for the cliiels of the insurgents, but simply to report to the Herald. That, as 1 understand it, was his mission. Rkpoktbr ?In that case you do not think that the Captain General would interfere with the pro ceedings or the military tribunal ? The Consul? 1 really don't know. Yen see I am not a military man, and I don't know much about court martlals and till this sort of thin?. 1 know that the Captain General has the prerogative ol pardoning criminals, but I really don't know what ue would do in a case like this. Reportkr ? The captain General has said that he would shoot O'Kelly as a spy. I'he Consul? Yes, I read so In the Hf.rild, but I don't know it ol my own knowledge. I ?lou't know that he said that. It's very hard to say what tliey will do. They may only take possession of his papers and send him out of Cuba. reporter? Prohibiting his return at the sama time ? The Consul? Undoubtedly. That would seem ta be the most likely result. Rkpoktkr? Could he be sentenced to imprison* ment? The Consul? Yes; that might be doae. Thoi court martial might sentence him to three, rour on six months' imprisonment. They might do that $ but, as 1 said belore, 1 really could not tell def initely what the authorities win do. There is on? point which I cannot understand. Yesterday thoi Herald had a despatch that the insurgents hadf taken Manzanlllo. Now, If that U true, 1 don't un derstand how the Spanish troops can have arrested lilm. I don't understand that. Reporter ? If the authorities take possession of Mr. O'Kelly's papers, what will they do with them f The Consul? Send the* home, probably, tor tha further action of the .Spanish government. No? Sou need not b" afraid that Mr. O'Kelly will leso is lUe. The Captain General is a thoroughbred I'entleman? a man of honor. He will do what M ust and right, lie will allow nobody tolntlsUdaie ilm, and will simply endoavor to mete out justice. kepoktkk? The authorities have no feeling against the Hkkald commissioner r The < onsul? No, I think not. I think he has acted with great caution and prudence, and, as lar as I have heard, has been treated with great courtesy. 01 course, II he lias been round lighting with the Insurgents, then It woul l be a different thing. Bnt 1 don't think Mr. O'Kelly would do that. He has Bhown himself too cautions and dis creet. Reporter? Do you regard It possible that he* could be snot within the next lorty-elght hours? The Consul? No, sir: Mr. O'Kelly Is la the handtf of a regularly ergauized tribunal, not in tnose of a, inob, and I don't think the Captain General would do anything before consulting the home govern ment. No; If such a thing of the kind were to bo done, It would uot be a matter that could be dis posed of in twenty-lour or lorty-elght honrs. That j ou may rely on. Reporter (rising to depart)? Thanks. The Consul? I a..i uery sorry I cau give you no more definite inforuiatiou. Good-day. The Seatimtat of tho Cabana of Sew York. A IIkrai.d reporter, in circulating among thei most prominent Cubaas of the city, found but ono sentiment? th?t the Spaniards would not daro touch the representative of the New York Herald, and, indirectly, of the American people. ??I think they will quietly let him go," obsorved m Cuban patriot, one of the wealthiest and mo*6 prominent in this country.
