Sympathy and Excitement In the City Over the Rumor of Mr* O'Kelly's Death. Havana, April 12, 1873. I have just received the below-given letter. It was forwarded to me by Mr. A N. Young, the United States Consul at Santiago de Cuba, who received it from Mr. O Kelly. As will bo observed by the date, it was written on the morning of the day after Mr. 0' Kelly's arrest. It was delayed on its route several days and by the time it arrived at Santiago de Cuba 2DID NOT WBAS THE SAME LIGHT-HE AJITEDNTSSS that is seen in its lines. Mr. O Kelly had then been closely confined over a week, and the significant unheal thiness of his location, taken in connection with the dark threats of the Spanish officials, gave a different com plexion to his words. The letter is, to me, of ihat frank, light-hearted sort which EVIDENCES FERFECT INNOCENCE. Did he believe himself in any way seriously comprised ho would not have written such a letter. This letter will be the more valuable hereafter because it shows that when Mr. O' Kelly was arrested HE WAS IN GOOD HEALTH. The effect to be had upon a foreigner by con fining him closely in a filthy cell, and com pelling him in a hot climate to BBEATHE THE AIR INFECTED Willi FOISON from an open cesspool, might be calculated easily. It is men often of the strongest consti tutions who are the first to succumb under auch studiously unfavorable conditions. MB. O* KELLY'S LETTER. Fort Gebona, | Manzanillo, April 1, 1873. j My Deab Young ? When you read the su perscription above do not imagine that I am playing you a joke in honor of All Fools' Day, for I am seriously a prisoner IN THE CALABOOSE OF FOBT GEBONA. Hereafter this day shall be sacred in my mem ory as appropriately dedicated to the genius of official Spain, and Don Whiskcrandos shall enter as a new saint in my private calendar. If the air of the cell were not infected by THE CESSPOOL, WHICH IS CLOSE BT, I could laugh at the droll position in which the representative of the tree press and the civilization and progress of the nineteenth cen tury finds himself, but I AM AFBAID TO OPEN MY MOUTH, lest the bad odor should disarrange my stom ach and interfere with my prospective break fast THE LITTLE BBIEF AUTHOBITY. There is no use writing at length, as I am not sure whether the deity who presides over the destinies of Manzanillo will permit, in his wisdom and power, this letter to proceed to its destination. I only wish to remind you that as THE BEPBESENTATIVE OF THE AMEBICAN NATION you owe mo some attention as the representa tive in this country of the American press, and that you cannot better discharge that obli gation than by sending here SOME OF UNCLE SAM* S BOYS, rfo that I may have a little society. If they don't let mo out soon I shall STABT A FBEE NEWSrAFEB, and the results, I assure you, will be fearful to contemplate. Inform my friends of my location, and be lieve me, ever sincerely, JAMES J. O' KELLY. SPECULATIONS MO _0PWUM8 W THE CITY. The rumor of tho death of Mr. o Kelly, the Her ald Commissioner in Cuba, was the subject ol con tinual comment yesterday in the city. At the ho tels and public places of resort the startling news was very freely discussed, ami the opiuton was uni jersal that. If true, the perpetrators of the outrage upon the progress and civilization ol the age should be held to Btrict account by BOTH TI1E AMERICAN AND BRITISH GOVERNMENTS. There Is a general sentiment of admiration at the gallant manner In which Mr. O'Kelly has periormed his perilous duties, and It is said that, whether liv ing or dead, his work on the island canuot lail to be deeply Injurious to Spanish rule. the feeling op sympathy that has been extended by the American people to the struggling Republic of Spain Is greatlj weak ened by tho news of the dastardly action of the Spanish authorities In Cuba, and but little hope is entertained that a republic which couid permit such an atrocity as has been perpetrated upon Mr. O'Kelly can long contend against the fierce oppo sition which Is belnn brought to bear upon It by its numerous opponents. The people In the city yes terday stated that they were completely at a loss to understand WUAT CIMUKd TnE HERALD CORRESPONDENT HAD BEEN GUILTY OF wb\cU would nccetsmtato UU arrest. Ills acUoua were not done sc-retlj, and tne object of tits mis hIoti wan proclaimed to the world, and us yet ?>thing has oeen pro*d against him which justi fies ?ua treatment. Tin CUBANS, as might be expeoed, are most Interested In everytning couni'Ctu with Mr. 0'K.elly. and the leeling among them esterday amounted to excite ment. All the vanas Cuban resorts were dlled with excited groupsipeculating upon the truth of the morning's news. The announcement that the American governmot had determined to interfere in the matter seeme to aiTord THE LIValKST SATISFACTION, although many twnk that the interference has come too late to be tfcctual. There are some who suppose that the Spmish authorities in Cuba would he scarcely reckless mougti to ill treat their pris oner in such a way bat death would have ensued ; but those who know them best believe them to be capable of any atucity. Authentic information regarding the fati of Mr. 0'K.elly la anxiously awaited. OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. Can O'Krty Be Held ?? ? ?Py? [From the >\tislnugton Star, April 12.J The arrest and tlreatened trial by court martial as a spy of the venturesome Celtic-American cor respondent, O'Kellj, in Cuba, raised the question as to whether O'Kdly is really amenable to the laws as an emissar,* of the Cuban patriots. Web ster defines the word "spy" as ? A person sent iito an enemy's camp to inspect their works, ascertain their strength and their in tentions, to watch their movements, aud secretly communicate intelligence to the proper ofllcer. Uy tne laws of wax among all civilized nations a spy Is subjected to capital punishmont. Had there beeuailded to this definition the state ment that a spy invariably conceals his true char acter under a disguise of some kind, It would, we think, be more complete. During the late war a number of spies were executed ou both sides, and In all cases they were in disguise. The case of lUchatdson, who was hung at Frederick, Md., ou the return of the Army of the Potomac from Get tysburg, is in point. Richardson had lollowed the army rrom the time it was first encamped in Vir ginia, in the capacity of a book and trinket ped ler. He would occasionally disappear lor weeks at a time, until finally attention was drawn to bis suspicious movements, and he was closely watchcd. It was finally ascertained that he was within our lines as a spy, and that when he disappeared he went into the camp of the en emy with valuable lniormation in reference to the strength of the Union army, its movements, Ac. He was captured near Frederick in the act of es caping Into the Confederate lines, tried by a drum head court-martial and hung? all within two hours after his arrest. In fact, no spy would dare to follow his dangeious calling for a moment with out a disguise. It may be said that Major Andre was hung as a spy, aud that when captured he was attired in British uniform, covered by a large cloak which he had been prevailed upon to wear. The justness oi Andre's sentence has never beeu admitted by many, for the reason, as Is claimed, that he was not, when arrested, acting in the ca pacity ol a spy ; that he was not even disguised; and that his presence within the federal lines was the result oi accident, and not design. In the case ol O'Kelly it must be remembered that he went to Cuba as an independent (natu ralized) American citizen, and not as a partisan ; and that he was never disguised or attempted to disguise his true character. He requested permis sion to go into the Cuban lines as a newspaper correspondent, and the Spanish authorities gave him leave to go, but also gave htm the comforting assurance that he would be shot If he returned. Subsequently the SDanish general in whose juris diction O'Kelly was, modified his threat, and said he would banish him if he returned. O'Kelly re turned, was arrested, and orders given for his trial as a spy by court martial. A late despatch says that two letters from President Ces pedes were iound on his person, and if tois is true his case is made considerably worse. There is no disguising the fact that O'Kelly hus been guilty of a serious offence, and that the Spanish authorities would he justified In sending him out of the country; but they are not warranted by the facts in treating him as a spy, for the reason that he lacks the dis tinctive feature of a spy, viz., a disguise. We tiust that General Torbert, the American Consul Ueneral at Havana, has taken a firm stand In the matter, and has placed O'Kelly 's case In such u light to the Spanish authorities that they will conteut them selves with sending him out of tho country. As a matter of policy they would find it a great blunder to execute lilin. A Sloiiht rouuly It i<l iculouH Outrage. [From the Meritlen (Conn.) Republican, April 10.] A Nkw Yokk Hkiulo correspondent who has becu travelling among the Insurgents In Cuba has been arrested by the Spaniards and la threatened with death as a spy, the only pretext for which, as we can see, is that he entered the rebel lines, and returned through the Spanish camp on his homeward jouruey. To treat a newspaper correspondent in such an outrageous manner is monstrously ridiculous, und should Invite the prompt Interference 01 the American government for iiis protection. II a man left the enemy's lines and entered the contending party's with the object ol' obtaining Information to be used In advancing the cause of one of the parties, then there would be some Justification ior his punishment. Hut In the case of the New Yoke Herald correspondent it Is quite different. He was and is the representa tive of a leading daily newspaper, which has earned a fame by penetrating every section of the eartli lu search of news. To learn the exact state or affairs In Cuba and present it without bias to the world was his errand to that islaud, and the Captain General was notified oi such Intention. Now, ir the Spaniards are airaid to have the correspondent "unfold his unvarnished tale," it will be suspected that there are more atrocities perpetrated than the world hears of. If they have evidence to prove him a rebel emissary, it should be presented. To de prive an American newspaper representative of his liberty, without any pretext of law, Is rather a dangerous proceeding for any government to un dertake. Hero we ure accustomed to the fullest liberty of the press, and the Spaniards will not aid their cause much by drawing on their, heads tho ill-will ot a [lower greater than the government? the American press. The Captain Grnrral'n Rrnkrn Promiie. [From the Hartford Post, April 12.) It appears that Mr. O'Kelly, the Hkkald corre spond nt in Cuba, is in extreme danger. He was sent down there as a commissioner to investigate the condition of affairs as they actually exist und make a full and accurate report, in order that the vexed question may be determined whether there Is war iu Cuba or mere depredations by roving bands of insurgents, without organized strength and undesei ving sympathy or aid. The Captain General, Ceballos, gave him verbal leave to go all over the islaud, but on his arrival at Santiago do Cuba, he was urrested and warned by General Morales, who is in command there, not to go further. If he did, he was told, he should be shot as a spy on his return. Iluving the license of the Captain General, however, Mr. O'Kelly cour ageously proceeded, though arrested several times, until he made the tour of the island, ob taining information upon its condition and that of both the contending forces. He was finally ar rested as a spy at Manzanillo, where he now lies in prison. There he is out of the way of all com munication, and cannot defend himself, for he can obtain no witnesses. In an swer to his Just request to be removed to Havana, where he could be defended and the true nature of his mission shown, the Captain General proposes to retract his own permission to Mr. O'Kelly, and to evade the responsibility of a fair trial, by sending him to Santiago de Cuba, which Is not oniy still more out of the way than Manza nillo, but Is iu Immediate control of the very man who has sentenced him to death in advance. Un der such circumstances the manifest injustice of that proceeding is evident. We hope our govern ment, will take such steps to secure a fair trial for Mr. O'Kelly as may bo lit Its power.

The report was not credited at St. Thomas, and was believed to have been manuiactured by the enemies of the Sarnana Bay scheme in Porto Kico. THE FDSEBIL OF A JAPANESE P&IVCE. Death of a Distinguished Japanese Stu dent In Brooklyn? The Burial Ceremo nies Yesterday Afternoon. A. Keu/.o Hirosawa, the son and heir of a Japan ese prince, was borne to his grave yesterday afternoon. The deceased was only nineteen years old, and a student in the Polytechnic Institute, of Brooklyn. The funeral took place from his late residence, 36 East Thlrty-eignth street. The Japanese students in this vicinity and Tetsnoske Tomita, the Japanese Charge d'Affaires, came to attend It. The services were solemn and Impres sive. In the drawing room of the elegant mansion ? the house ot Mr. Klchard l'oillon? lay the body of the young nobleman, reposing in a casket ol singu lar beauty and niugnlllceuce. It was of rosewood, with extension plates, lined with satin and solid silver plates. Tlie inscription was as follows:? X Died April tf. 1S73, * J Aged lu years and ;; months. $ C Exquisite flowers covered the casket aud liileii the room with their perfume. lu the adjoining room sat Mr Poll ion and family, lliey were weep ing sadly when Dr. Thomas N. liastiUKS, of West Forty-second street Presbyterian church, spoke in words ttiat were broken by emotion oi the noble heart that was stilled lorever. Ills friends aud lellow students from Japan stood by, their laces convulsed by grief. The pall-bearers were S. T. Agce, M. Sato, M. Uhudaira, S. Matsda, l)r. Coch rane, President of the Polytechnic Institute, in which the deceased had studied within a week of his death; Mr. Leillngwell and Mr. Young, both professors In the Institute, and Mr. J. A. l'oillon. At two o'clock the remaius were conveyed TO liRKEN WOOD CKMK'JKBY. A. Keuzo Hirosawa was the son of one of the foremost statesmen of Japan wno were instru mental in bringing about the modern policy of the government ol that country, aud was assassinated two years ago by some unknown hlerliugs. Hiro sawa was sleeping just before dawn when a band ot some thirty swordsmen broke lnt* his dwelling. They had hewn him literally into pieces, and es caped before a general alarm could oe giveu. The purpose of the assassination, even 11 it has been discovered by the government, has never been re vealed even to the members of his family. Many speculations wen; rile at the time, but none could explain the real rauses of the conspiracy, for Hiro sawa was one of the most popular men In public liie. Young Kcuzo was at that time attached to the American Consulate. He left Japan, and, in company with Lieutenant l'oillon, a son ol Mr. Richard l'oillon, ol tins city, travelled all over Europe. He vislfed England, France, Germany, Italy, Egypt, and was everywhere trealed with the utmost courtesy, A .tear ago If K CAME TO THIS C0I*NTIIY, and has ever since been studying American insti tutions and arts with an Industry that seemed almost Inexhaustible. He stood veiy high m his class ill the Polytechnic Institute, and was gen erally liked. He was gentle, courteous, kind to everybody, and endowed with a vigorous intellect. It was his dying request that the burial ceremonies should be couducted in accordance with the Pics b> terian faith, and his body should not be returned to Japan, but interred in Greenwood Cemetery. Ills mother and his brothers and sisters lu Japan enjoy the very highest social position in Jeddo, and young Hirosawa would undoubtedly have been called to some prominent position had he lived to return to his uative country.

Inglli, of Brook lyn, and Rev. Dr. Eddy?Attack* on the Catholic I'liurrh. A meeting In behalf of the Kvangelical Alliance was held in the Madison avenue llaptist church, corner Thirty-first street, last night. There wan a large sprinkling of ladles lu the audience. The Kev. Dr. Chapin opened the meeting by prayer. Mr. William K. Dodge then delivered an address. He said they expected a large number of delegates at the next General Conference, to be held on the 2d oi October. It was hoped that all the members of the Alliance would open their houses to receive some of these delegates as guests. Another confer ence would probably not be held 111 New ^ork In the next twenty-live years. It would also be neces sary to raise a lund lor expenses, l hey had in vited all those who were to participate as speakers to c?me at the expense of the Evangellc.il Alliance. Dr. Inglis, ol Brooklyn, said there was but. little doubt that the hospitaiitv ol New York would be luliy equal to the exigencies ol the occasion. This was not a union ol churches, but an alliance of Christians. No church was represented in the Al liance, and, therefore, no church was compromised by It. The basis on which the members were al lied was a somewhat broad one. It embraced all why held evangelical principles. He believed in I he Holy Catholic Church and tue comuiunlou or saiius, but he could not, and they could not, nar row their Christian affections down to the points oi ,i simple denomination. WlitrtTtr they recog nized a christian, a brother, they must set aside all barriers of denomination. This was no compromise, but this was a simple manifestation to the world of the oneness of their principles In all essential points. The Christian was in this Alliance even allowed to maintain evangelical principles against Infidelity and ro[?ery. The testimony which the Alliance bad already borne to the great principles of re ligious liberty had already shown good results in France, in Spain and even in Italy. The system of Humanism lu this country was the same ns it was lu Italy. When he heard Catholic priests and prel ates in New York he asked himself the question, "Would these men speak so If ttiev were In Mexico or In .spaiu or in Austria T" There was imminent daugcr to the liberties or this laud. The whole spirit or Romanism was In opposition to the spirit ol religious and civil liberty. In this very city the Catholic Church Is getting more than what was due to it on the basis oi equality. They must beware of allowing a Church to receive money from the city for sectarian purposes. And the poiut of danger was the reiatloii or the Catholic church to the common schools. Could they allow the Komanists to cone In and to put this divine book, the Itlble, out of tue schools? To say that the Itlble should not be allowed to be read was to undermine the very foundations of the institutions of tills country. What Would have become oi the Cnlted Mates without this lilbief ihe Kev. I)r. Ktfdy made a few remarks. He said It would be impossible that any denomination stieuid become the State CUuicii 01 Amei'tc*. lUcjf conld nee that it was in trie fraternity of Christian hearts tuat Uod had given Ills P^teat blessings, lie present inn different chorr^ei( ti??,ah they do, th<*y come together I*; one common faith, that they we;e one iti Jesus Christ. There wan scarcely & tand where conscience was not virtually tree; never had tne sun shone down upon such a world of tieauty. With OMB heart they would greet the delegates to this great Conference and give them it grand reception. other addresses were delivered, and tho meetiug then adjourned. REAL E^T^TF, JJ^JTERS.

On Friday Half a dozeu doctors were in attendance. Amputation wan per formed on the left lee, just below the kuee, and on Saturday some hopes were enter tained of the unfortunate man's ultimate recovery. Ills wonderful grit and pluck bore him up bravely, but nature could not stan I tiie terrible shock. Nor could the combined skill of the small convention of surgeons and doc tors counteract the ell'ects of the fTlplitful accident. Yesterday morulas, at a quarter past three o'clock, "poor Abe" "passed In his checks." On Wednesday probably he will tie laid beside bis brother "Pet" in the lamily vault at Elizabeth.
