The Diario de la Marina Treats the Prisoner of Gerona with Lofty Consideration. TWO SIDES TO THE DUNGEON STORY. Cowardly Indignities Heaped Upon the Herald Commissioner. 1 FEROCIOUS ORDER, TO HIS SENTRIES. A Brutalized Soldier, Mad with Drink, Placed in His GelL Havana, May 10, 1873. Tbe Diario, in a recent issue, devotes a column and a-half of its space to tbe Herald's com missioner, Mr. O'Kelly, as much, perhaps. In Its lolty disdain for tlie Herald and ail Its iaiuous en terprises, as it leels incumbent upon itself to give. It commences the remarks on Mr. O'Kelly by ex pressing a lear, with which it is otten troubled, that, in preparing to write upon a subject and be fore setting down the first sentence, it may be arviNO too uuen importance to an affair wuich Is really, TootsUlce, of no conse quence. Whereupon it continues:?"That it is widely known that the Herald employs every im aginable means to give sensational news, and con siders every dollar thus spent in undertakings to Africa to see if Livingstone bo alive or not, or to penetrate to the Presidential shantv of Cespedea In Cuba, to be a reproductive expense." It at tributes also the Herald's silence for a few days, concerning O'Kelly, to "the profound disdain with which tbe American government and people looked on the detention of O'Kelly, although he appeared iu tbe Island oi Cuba in the imposing character or the plenipotentiary minister of THE LEVIATHAN OF THE AMERICAN PRESB, and although this intermittent patron of the Cuban insurgents thundered more bolts and threats against Spain than Jupiter himself, and threatens with dire vengeance, even to tbe point of ridicule, the Spaniards of this Antllle, who have a hundred times shown no propensity to such panic." The Diario continues by declaring that although the American people arc affccted to startling news and fond of such as cause extras and double head lines, yet the Henderson fiasco has prejudiced his Buccoseor, O'Kelly; and Brother Jonathan, or his government at Washington, eagerly seize the op portunity of O'Kellr's being an Irishman and a British subject to shrug shoulders over the matter. The Diario entertains the conviction that such also would be the case if O'Kelly was an American citizen, for it asserts that no government respect ing itself could make an international affair or THE I.EOAL ARREST of one of its subjects, who had violated the laws ol tbe country where he was. ?mis much as a preamble before the Diario pro ceeds to give its vers.on of the matter, which seems purposely intended to damage O'Kelly. A WEAK INVfiNTION OP THE ENEMY. According to its own information the Diario de clares that it was commonly current in tbe Manza aillo district that a foreigner was engaged with the insurgents, who about that time had more or less meetings and interchange of shots with the Span ish lorcea. It was also well known that O'Kelly fcad left Santiago de Cuba for Palma Soriano that la the latter place he had his pass visted to return to Santiago; that he set out, but his whereabouts was then unknown. Proof sufficient was offered tbat the before-mentioned foreigner was none else than the Herald commissioner, who, at his own risk, and wlthont any authorization whatever, had crossed the Spanish lines and joined the enemies of Spanish nationality. With an excuse lor per baps ONE OR TWO SLIGHT INACCURACIES of no importance, the Diario continues the narra tive of Mr. O'Keily's mishapsThat in course or affairs the British Vice Consni presented hlaself to the Lieutenant Governor or Manzanlllo requesting a pass for a British subject to proceed to Havana. No obstacle was offered by the Governor; but when he discovered that the >earer of the pass was O'Kelly. the very suspicious Herald Commis sioner, who had his pass vised at Palma Soriano over a month previously to return to Santiago de Cuba, he ordered his arrest and the seizure of bis papers, which were sealed up with all due formal ity and the whole affair reported to the superior Mthority of the island for instructions. Protests were, of course, made by O'Kelly and the British Vice Consul, and also, OP COURSE, UNATTENDED TO. A court was Immediately ordered, and has com menced its duties. It Is said that among O'Keily's papers were several note books, with letters from Oeapedes ana others. O'Keily's case continues its legal course, and his arrest has caused as little attention as did the news of his arrival In this city. The Diario says the foregoing, but knows better, and gives sufficient proof by Ailing columns of its former issues about O'Kelly, having published O'KKLLV'S LETTER ENTIRE, written at the residence of Cespedes, and com mented upon it at great length. The Diario closes its article by expressing its opinion that O'Kelly was never securer in his life than he now is at Fort Qerona, and reports to the contrary in New York are gratuitous and made out of whole cloth. Be may be ennuy? at his long Im prisonment, bat at least he is passing a more pleasant time than be did in the maniqua. Ills published letters prove he Is allowed ink and paper and the greatest liberty in using his pen. And now, as always, the Diario refers to the past his tory of Spain, Its Clds, Covadorigas and other fel' lows. This time it says "IRISHMEN AT THE CLOSE OP THE SEVENTEENTH CKNTURV were great friends of Spain, as from her they ex pected everything, and this friendship has been continued. One swallow does not make a Sum mer, and the swallow O'Kelly (they can't swallow him) will not make the generality of the Irish peo ple donbt the chivalry of the Spanish people of our own days." LOOK ON THIS 8T0BV, now, to fully reply to the foregoing epistle of the Diario and "show up" "Spanish chivalry". I quote the following from a private letter addressed to your correspondent, received yesterday from Mr. O'Kelly, dated Fort Gerona, May ft Since vour departure I have not failed to feel the beneficial influence exerted in my favor by the ar rival of the Plover. ? ? * The kind attentions paid to me tiy Commander Hlpplsley and Ins officer** have done much to dlsslp.i te the feeling or security entertained by the authorities, who had BKOVN TO LOOK ON MB A9 A VICTIM abandoned to their vengeance. Already I have be< n delivered from more than one annoyance and Inaignlty. Every morning one of the officers comes to vlHit nie officially, and in the evening I have generally the pleasure oi receiving two or three of Ue gentlemen who hai pen to be off duty, so thut, you see, the dull mi n< tony of my former life here has iieen agreeably broken. On the night of your departure ttie oCcer or the ;uard took it into' his head to place a sentry in my cell, with ORDERS "TO BAYONPr MR I moved from m.v bed." No notice whatei er was (riven to me of the ferocious order, and the fl> st In timation or my danger camo in tne middle o.r the night, hearing the soldiers change the consl^nf. These pleasant guardians of my slumbers WvTe changed every half hour, and I discreetly avoided any somnambulism, lest Koine playfully disposal QHinUi (recruit) should wake me up in the next world by a hint from his "bayonet."

THE RICHMOND DUEL Pon?r?i of Murdcciil?Surrrndrr of tlic N<-con<tu ?Verdict of the Coroner's Jury. Richmond, Va.. May 18, 1873. i At an early hour this morning the four seconds on the late duel surrendered themselves to the police and were conoued in the Hecond precinct I station house. The members of the liar held a meeting and j adopted resolutions expressive of regret lor the loss to the profession of J. B. Mordecai, eugolmtic of his frank, brave, true and lolty character, and or profound sympathy for his bereaved mother uud relatives. Alter this the funeral ceremonies of the dcc,cas?d took place in St. James' Episcopal church, which was crowded to ils utmost capacity by the <?UU of the city, all the approaching thor oughfares being also crowded and the streets lineii by carriages. The remains were then es corted by the Richmond Howitzers, members of the Bar and several societies to the bnriitl place oi the Mordecai lanuly, in Henrico couaty. Messrs. Royall and Trigg, seconds of the deceased, were permitted to attend the funeral in charge of a captain of the police. During the evening the imprisoned seconds have been visited by large crowds of syniimthlzing friends. Later they were brought betorc tue Coro ner's Jury, where they severally re I used to testify by advice of counsel. The testimony so far elicited by the Coroner is regarded by some as rather dam aging to the cause of the surviving principal and the seconds, hut as it is only a mere formal exam j inaiion is not believed to be ol much consequence. The verdict oi the Coroner's jury was that J. B. Mordecai came to his death by a pistol shot from the hand oi Page McCarty In a duel on the evening of May 9, and they lurther tltid that the seconds, VV. B. Tabb, J. L. Meredith, W. L. Royall and W H. Trigg, and l)rs. J. 8. Do Cuilen and Hunter Magulre arc censurable for not. having given information to the authorities in time to have prevented the duel. All the seconds will now be committed and proba bly afterwards held to ball lor trial. Mccarty's wound is still very serious and his condition ex ceedingly precarious. The death of Mordecai lias been studiously kept from his knowledge. INDIAN CONTRACTS.

In regwd to awards we would say that In every case they were made to the lowest and best bid ders As to the result of the present system of let tlng it is only necessary to say that 284 bids, repre senting over two hundred different firms and indi vidual bidders, were received, and flity-seven.con tracts were awarded. As to the prices obtained, compared with those under the old system, beef ranged from >1 OS to *2 7* per 100 pounds, against as high as $6 50 per 100; flour irom * 1 M to $3 60 per loo, against prices at the same agen cies ranging as high at times as $14 per 100, ami other articles were at almost as marked a difference. That parties who have in the past supplied the Indian Department wlt'a goods at these prices should be dissatisfied with the present system is not to be wondered at.

Boston, May 16, 1873. The achievements of Coe, the forger, st.lll con tinue the chief topic of comment In Boston, and recent developments warrant the suspicion that his rascalities have been only half exposed, fur thermore, there are develoi ments which go to show that the accused had several accomplices in his crimes, and state street Is greatly agitated In consequence. Karly this morning there were rumors implicating various gentlemen, andbank ?T?rand brokers wore equally anxious lortlu sal vation of their own as well as their friends' rcpu; tations. One of the stories was to the effect that Wllliani Y Coe, a brother of .lames A.

The examination was not concluded nntll half-past one o'clock this after noon when Mr. Dorr announced that none or his securities were missing, but Mr. Humphreys had ascertained that railroad and city bonds, amount ing in value to $32,000, have been abstracted from the vault.

As the chronology of piano music with Rubin stein comes down to more modern times, public in terest scums to be more fully awakened. At the third recital yesterday the programme consisted of the choicest works of Scliubert, Weber and Men delssohn. The divine poet of melody, whose works, piano, vocal or Instrumental, glow with beautiful thoughts, was represented by his fantaBia, C major, iaenuct, fantasia, (i major, and the bouquet or mel odies called "Moments Musicalcs." The del icate fancy and arabesque structures of mel ody which characterize the style of Franz Schubert were painted in corresponding colors by the magic fingers of the great pianist. He was not so fortunate in his interpre tation of Weber, of whose works he played a sonata in A flat major, "Momento Caprlccioso," "Invita tion A la Y'alse" unci the Polonaise in K major. The untamed tler.v spirit that Hashes through the most difficult concertos and etudes, regarding technical Intricacies as child's play, Is apt to tear asuuder the tilniy web of gracelul themes spun by the composer of the "FrelschUtz." There Is one weakness that the great, pianist yields to, which, in a Weber piano work, is incxcusat>>e. While the right hand gives the subject and the left Is em ployed in embellishing it, the temptation to give loose rein to the latter seems to Rubinstein Irre sistible, and the consequence is that the theme is completely swamped. Eleven songs without words, scherzo capricco. scherzo fantasia and '?Variations Serfeuses" represented the school of Mendelssohn. The fourth recital takes place this afternoon, ami the programme will consist of the best works of Schumann. Mile. Llebhart had a very interesting concert last evening. The feat ure on the bill was Schu mann's "Andante" and variations for two pianos, played by Kublnsteln and Miss Mehlfff. Of all the works written lor two performers this may be re gardful as the tnest melodious and beautiful. There are none ol t lie massive qualities that gener ally mark such works, but a graceful, delicate In ter! wining ot themes, a sort of poetic dialogue between the pianists, which, last night, was len nysonlan in its beauty. Of the vocalists we have hut terms of the highest pralso for the noblu rendering of the aria, "Ctuaruo II mio bencosi," from Qluck's "Orpheus." bv Mile. DrasdU. It is not too much lo say that, since the days of Albonl we have hart no such contralto in America as Mile, Drasdll. Her voice is organ-like in depth, volume and richness of tone, and so per fectly trained that a perfect equality Is preserved from the lowest, to the highest note. Mile. I'auilue Canlssa, despite tne unaccountable disappointment of the violinist, M. Sauret. who was annouueed to appear, sang Gounod's "Ave Maria" line a.truo aitlst. Mr. Millard contributed a couple of G nor songs iinrt a composition, which received lull justice at the hands ol the fair btn&Jtctaire. M le. Llebhart also sang the letter aria from "Don Olovanui." It was, throughout, a very enjoyable concert. Musical and Dramatic Notes. The Snmmrr season at the Olympic Theatre will open with the Coleman sisters.

A First Class Performance-No "Eing" Left but the Big One, and Nearly All the Aldermen in It?How They Stand the Mayor's Lash?Scarce ly a Sqnirm Visible. The Fire Commissioner** Confirmed?Dock and Court House Commissioners Nomi nated SkeUhes of the Candidates. The sensation which prevailed about the City Hall in the early part of the week concerning the "deadlock" which wan threatened, and, in fact, which seemed to exist, between the Major and the Aldermen on the subject of the new appointments of Commissioners is dead. Kverybody thinks It was very lunny, and a few think it was ridiculous, and they have dropped it, for almost every vote on continuation of the new Commission ers has been unanimous. Of course, the interest in reference to tue appointments Is not nagging, and, probably, will not uutll Mojiday next, when the remainder or the nominations are to be sent in, as i he twenty days' time allowed by law to the Mayor in which to select his nominees will expire on Tnesday. It the Mayor haa seut in the names for Police Commissioners a week ago, and the appoint ments had been made complete, the excitement would almost have frittered itsell out by this time. There was a largo cr >wd again in attendance at the Iiall yestepdav, many or whom, doubtless, came to see the little "circus" which the Aldermen have managed to get up at their last two sessions. When the Hoard was called to order every mem ber answered to the call of the roll. President Vance presided. Alderman Van Schaick arose to a question of privilege, acd staled that, inasmuch as SOMK OF TUK REPORTERS had attributed to him language not used by him when ^p'-aking to a question of privilege on the preceding day, especially by the use of names which he had not uttered, he would feel obliged if the papers would publish in full the remarks made by him on Thursday. Ho concluded by moving that the Clerk of the Board be instructed to notify the Mayor that the Hoard was now In session and prepared to receive any communications from him. Alderman Ottendorkkr wanted a committee appointed ior the purpose. Aldcrmau Van Sciiaick said that, notwithstand ing the Mayor had said on tho previous day, In ref erence to the inquiry of a committee, that he had no more names to present, yet, alter some lurtlier nrocecding, the Board had submitted themselves to TIIE INDK1NITY of receiving nominations from him after the recess. He wanted to avoid anv repetition of that, and therefore moved that the Clerk be ordered to wait on tho Mayor. Alderman Reilly moved to take from the table the Mayor's nominations for Fire Commissioners. Alderman Koch made a little speech, protesting against such precipitate action, and insisting that lie had a rlirht to a reasonable time to consider ills action on the nominees. Aldcrmau Van Sciiaick concurred In Mr. Koch's views, and salu, "1 desire to protest as strongly as 1 know how." He thouirlit the nomination of Mr. I'orley lor Fire Commissioner an eminently proper ono, as he did also that of Mr. Van Cott. Witn regard t o Mr. Hatch, he thought tnat, notwith standing his excellent reputation as a lawyer, he was not. in any manner fitted lor the position of I Commissioner on that Board. ! home objections were here made to Mr. Van I Schalck's remarks and points of order were taken. | Alter some good-natured discussion, during which I Alderman Morris suggested that "the gentleman be allowed to go right on as he was doing, and proceed in that manner out ol order." I Alderman Van tsCHAiCK, In an aodress of some I length, went on to show that IT WAS GROSS INJUSTICE I to confirm the nomination of Roswell D. Hatch. 1 He was in no wise experienced in anything which should be considered us belonging to tne qualifica tions which go to make a good Fire Commissioner. There was nothing to show that he was in any degree famUlar with the management of snch a ! department, and his confirmation would displace one ol the best men that ever held such a position, General Alexander Shaler. Shaler had been a brave and elllcient officer during the war, and served tils country well. Upon returning to peaceful llle he. became the first President of tills Flie Depart I ment, and to his efforts more than to those ot any other was the city indebted for the high state of discipline and efficiency the Department had at tained. He had made It the pride of the city, and It iiad been the subject of culoglum of inspecting officers and visitors irom all the leading cities of I the I'nlou and irom some of the chief cities of Europe. Their Commissioners had passed the I highest encomiums on the Department. He did not know what General Shaler's politics were, but to east, aside a man such as he from such a Depart ment to put a lawyer in his place was simply ridiculous. Alderman Reii.i.y moved to confirm Joseph L. Perley us Ftre Commissioner, to Hold office until May 1, 1879. The confiimatlon was made by a unanimous vote.

William Gellmann presiding, held u meeting at :i49 Rowery last night, when the Executive Committee, through Leo Well, reported that resolu tions liad been prepared, expressing dis satisfaction with the Mayor's nominations, in not having "recognized" the claims of the Ger man republicans when making these nominations. The German republicans, it was argued, base their "claims" on the alleged lact that they represent at least 16,000 voters whose votes In the last election were cast in aid of the cause of mnnlctnal reform. The German republi can organization, it is claimed, was among the first in the campaign that resulted In the overthrow of Tammany Ring rule. Inasmuch as the nominations i were not yet complete, it was proposed to take no action in the matter at present, and to lay the resolutions relerred to over until some luture meeting, which was accordingly done. Resolutions In honor ol the memory of the late 1 Cbler Justice or the United States, Salmon P ' Chase, were adopted by a solemn and unaulmous 1 vote. A RABBI'S FAREWELL. An Immrniie Congregation Gathered in the Temple Emanuel to Bid Or. Ciolt heil Adieu. Rarely haw such a congregation gathered on nn ordinary Sabbath evening 111 a Jewish synagogue as gathered last night in the Temple Kmauuel to listen to the parting words of the Rev. Dr. Gott hcll. The Doctor came here a couple of weeks ago, in answer to the earnest calls of the congre gation. He preached three sermons before them which gave such general satisfaction that last Mon day night the congregation unanimously elected him their English preacher for five years, at an annual salary of $0,000. lie sails for Knropc to-day to arrange for a final reparation from his congregation In Manchester, England, with whom he lias labored for lift ecu years with great ability and success. And last night he made a parting address to his new-found American Irlcnds. When, he remarked, some few days ago I occupied this place lor the first time I was embar rassed, but that embarrassment has passed away and another has takeu its place. 'I o-night I stanil before you. he said, as one ol your ministers, and yourgenerousness has loaded me with gratitude and joy. But It is not the Joy of pride. No, and he thanked God who had kept him Irom that. But, v ith this sacred joy, there came also respon sibilities. The congregation had laid upoii his shoulders a great work, and he knew not whether he should be aide to satisfy their expectations or riot. There Is a great task before us, he said, and we have pledged ourselves to maintain the union now established. They must work out the great prln cipies ol Judaism, and make themselves felt in the the community. Id such work It is Impossible that differences will not arise, and the time may come when It would not be as easy lor him to agree with them as It Is now. He may have to sav no to what they may require, hut Ids constant desire and hope wili l>e to serve them M best he can and to give them the result or as profound studv as he may tie able to bring to bear, and to preach to them the truth as lie shall understand It and according to his own convictions. He asked their sympathies, aud he had no doubt that tlio relations thus established would prove mutually satlsiactory. He would not seek so much to nil the temple with Ills voice as to till tiieir hearts with truth, lie may have to reprove and rebuke and to chastise us well as to comfort the strug gling hearts, and lor tilts ho needed the closest relation with them. He should always bear them upon his heart wheu he went to prayer. He would not only preach from the Bible but Irom dally life also?not irom the say ings and doings 01 the ancients, but irom the moderns also. Ho hoped they would always look upon him as their triend. The Doctor referred to the several Hebrew institutions in the city, and ap plauded their management. He prayed that God would enable Mm to sneak words of comic.rt to the sorrowing and to those who walk Uirough the val ley of the shadow ol death. He bade them a fare well lor a snort time, he pledged to them the ser vice of his hie, thanked them for their kindness, and closod with an earnest prayer to God lor them. THE NATIOHAL GAME.
