The specifications regarding the poisoning story, as published in (the Herai.D, were admitted, bat it was con tended that they were the utterances of Cap ftain Hall while delirious. The use of the !Ti?AT.n despatches as the ground for the ex amination is the government's tribute to JfHiTP euUnsrwo. The Story of Throe Impriioatd Hero Id Correipomden to?Proof* of Sp??Ufc In capacity to Role. When the Spanish authorities in Cuba com menced their senseless persecution of the Heb?.t> correspondents sent to that island to report on the rebellion we understanding^ informed them that no repressive effort of theirs should prevent the full truth on the subject being told in these columns. The time has forever passed when a government can successfully conspire against the publica tion of the truth in its own day. In tho old times, before the press was born, before the telegraph waB dreamed of and before the rail road was imagined, the guilty secrets of rulers, their grinding oppressions and the springs of their policy were buried and hidden away for after ages to be startled by discovering them. Such musty authorities as Mr. Motley struggled through to write the story of Spain's tyranny in the Nether lauds, became the graves for centuries of the misdeeds, the barbaritios, the bloody fanaticisms of the age. We have changed all that. Spain may have lugged in the race of progress, and her satraps may be conscientious in the belief that truth unfavor. able is as reprehensible when brought to light as ever was the creed of a wealthy Jew when the Fathers of the Inquisition wanted money. The nation, ignorant of or blind to the chango in relations between the ruler and the ruled, must be taught the new gospel, whether it would or no. It cannot isolate itself, however great its desire to be let alone with its victim struggli ng vigorously against the knife. Because the struggle in Cuba was lapsing into the stage of indifference on the part of tho outside world, and because the parti-colored and exaggerated reports sent from the Antilles conveyed no just idea of the bitter war being waged, the Herald resolved to cut deep into the difficulty and lay bare its heart. Hence agent after agent was despatched thither by the Herald. Tho Spaniards had hitherto held all or nearly all the lines of com munication in their hands. They could say what they pleased?truth or falsehood?and bafk it by all the weight of a responsible gov ernment, and hence the stupid stumbling blocks thrown in the way of our correspond ents by the Spaniards. The circuitous and nnauthenticttted mode by which information reached the world from the insurgents mili tated against their reports being unhesitatingly accepted. The cause of truth demanded that some one should speak to the world impar tially and with the authority of direct evi dence, disinterestedly and intelligently stated. It was tho cardinal point of our instructions to the Herald commissioners that, in spite of all obstacles, they should remember that they were expected to tell only tho truth, please or oifend whom it might. With this much dis tinctly laid down we come to the immediate subject of this article. In another portion of the Herald will be found the letter of our secret commissioner to Cuba, who left Santiago de Cuba for the rebel lines some weeks after Mr. O'Kelly's successful effort in the same direction. The treasons governing him in first communicating to us his experience from the date of his re turn to the Spanish lines will be easily under stood, us he explains them. We have only now to state what we hinted in tho beginning of this article, that every effort made by the Spanish to kill of)' our news or deaden its effect has been foiled with a success which will astonish them. On the 15th of last month Mr. Millen walked coolly into the town of Manzanillo aud sur rendered himself to the Spanish authorities, after a light breakfast at the residence of the United States Consular Agent. Ho expected to be ordered to prison, aud the Don of the district did not disappoint him. He was placed in the cell where Mr. O'Kelly had suf fered so many unmerited indignities. Mr. Millen is an American citizen, and his im prisonment came suddenly to an end, after two days' incarceration. He had admitted the fact of his having arrived from the camp of C'espedes, the Cuban President, and had announced his connection with the New York Herald. There was not the slightest legal difference between his case and that of Mr. O'Kelly, but tho former was released and the latter is on his way to Spain, a prisoner of war. It will be entertaining to notice tho sarcasm indulged in at ihe expense of the British government by Captain General Piel tain, when the Acting British Consul pointed out to the Don this similarity of conduct of the two Herald men and the dissimilarity of treatment accorded them. The Captain General tauntingly informed the Acting Con sul that if he would lodge a formal complaint against Mr. Millen he (the Captuin General) would order Mr. Milieu's rearrest At this time Mr. O'Kelly, confined in Fort Cabana, whs sleeping at night upon the damp floor of his cell. Indeed, until he had dropped some thing into the palm of one of the haughty Spanish officers, he was left unprovided with a bed. From an interview hud with our other im prisoned correspondent, Mr. Price, we learn that he believes his arrest was caused by Mr. 0'Kelly's prosecutors, who wished to find out whether there was such a thing in existence as a Herald secret cipher, whether Mr. O'Kelly sent this wonderful cipher ?'under ground," and whether Mr. Price, outside prison, assisted Mr. O'Kelly, inside prison, in sending it "underground." If all these things were bo they wanted to kuow if Mr Price had u key to this underground railroad cipher, and would not Mr. Price kindly in form them where he had left the key. Such a mixture of puerility and malice it would be difficult, outside of Spanish jurisdiction, to find, as an excuse for depriving an unoffend ing person?the citizen of a foreign State? of his liberty and cutting him off for a num ber of days from all communication with th e outside world. Mr. Price, in a letter published elsowhere, states that he has been accused of no crime, although at the date of writing he had been ten days in prison. He distinctly declures his innocence of any crime against Spanish law. He appeals to tho United States govern ment to move in his behalf, as he is an Ameri can citizen. There must, we presume, be a limit beyond which the arrogance of the Span ish government to American citizens will be met by something beside submissive inaction on the part of the United States government What ia that limit? Mr. Price in very brief space has stated his case. We wonld ask, Is his not a case which marks tho bonnd Where inac i turn on the oftxt of the noYenuneat become# indifference that is criminal, not to say cow ardly? The Spanish authorities are fully aware that it is impossible to accomplish anything in the way of bringing home the most remote appearance of partisanship in the discharge of his mission to Mr. O' Kelly; but they purblindly think that a series of petty tyrannies and small persecu tions against all Hebald men within their rcach will deter others from following in their footsteps. The shrewd surmise which gives General Pieltain credit for a desire to smooth over the blunders in harshness of his prede cessor may be well founded ; but we think it is an injustice to the General, which he would hasten to correct by placing the surmiser somewhere, incommunicado, until he had formed the proper opinion of General Piel tain's liability to blunder as boldly as the late lamented Ceballos. It will be a curious point that in an un dertaking to discover the truth about the rebellion in Cuba the correspondents of the Herald should, much against their will, be enabled to unmask the flagrant abuses which mark the administration of the thing called "justice" by the Spaniards. An investigation of the filth and disorder of the prisons, the venality and tyranny of jailers and the barbar ous practices which defile their prison system generally was no part of the mission entrusted to the intrepid gentlemen in the service of tho Herald in Cuba. It was forced upon them by the Spaniards themselves. As Mr. Glad stone's recital of tho horrors of the dungeons of Naples did much to destroy the throne of tho Bombas, so the pictures of sinister doings in Cubau dungeons will be of little service to tho cause of Spain. If they cannot put down the Cul>an rebellion in the forests, and are bar barous and antiquated in their administration of the towns, what hopo^is therp thaj^ can retain power in Cuba in a century like tho present? The interviews of a Herald corre spondent, himself just released from prison, with two others in durance will point all the moral of Spanish incapacity and folly that the bitterest enemy of Spain could desire. France and the Bonaparte*. Whatever may be the strength of the Re public in France or the programmo of the monarchical conservatives of the Assembly in tho displacement of President Thiers, it is evident on all sides that the imperialists have "groat expectations" of some change in the situation under President MacMahon which will bring them again into the foreground. Nor does it appear that MacMahon thinks, as Thiers thought, that, of all things, it is essen tial to the internal peace of France to keep the Bonapartes out of tho country and to expel them if they dare to come in. On tho con trary, a few days after the advancement of MacMahon to the place given up by Thiers, Prince Pierre Napoleon Bonaparte was re ported among the new arrivals in Paris, and now it appears that Jerome Napoleon (Plon Plon) walks around the "burned district" of the Tuileries without a remonstrance from' MacMahon, though his presence among the imperialists of Paris has awakened a suspi cious excitement among tho Bourbons of the Assembly. As Thiers, however, in Incoming President, became a Thiers man, so MacMahon, whatever he may have been before, will, as President of France, bo apt to go for MacMahon, as the wisest course between the radical republicans, conservative republicans, old Bourbons, Or leanists and imperialists. Still, in giving the Bonapartes tho rights of French citizens, MacMahon is to them an immense improve ment on Thiers. Whatever may bo the de signs of the old favorite Marshal of the Empire, it is at least apparent, from this concession, that he is not af raid of the Bonapartes. Meantime, from a letter of M. Pietri, late confidential secretary of Napoleon the Third, and in the days of the Empire Napo leon's confidential polioeman, it appears that the sensational production published on Thursday last in the l'all Mall irazette, as an appeal from the ex-Empress Eugenie to the French people, in behalf of her son, is nothing but a canard, and Pietri, being still in the confidence of the ex-Empreas, ought to know. The canard, perhaps, served its turn, as a newspaper bellringer for a day, but whether from a friend or an euemy of the Bonapartes, it can do them no harm. France is quiet, MacMahon seems to bo fully the master of the field, with the army at his back; but there is no telling what may be the next turn of the wheel between him and tho un certain French Assembly. The Jerome Park Rare* To-Day. The Spring meeting of tho American Jockey Club commences to-day at Jerome Park. This is an event to which the fashion ubles of the metropolis look forward with in tense interest All the aggrogato art of mil- . linery in New York is called into requisition by the belles of society, and the gentlemen regard these races as the crowning triumph of a long season of fashion and bon ton. It is, as it were, the close of the fashionable season. Should the clerk of the weather be in one of his amiable moods the commencement of the Spring season to-day will be brilliant in the extreme. The programme is very interesting, comprising the Fordham Handicap Sweep stakes, for which the course is a mile and a quarter and the entries thirty-eight in number. Then come the Belmont Stakes, for which seventy-five three-year-olds are entered. A three-quarter mile race, for all ages, and a steeplechase fill up the programme. Tho Jerome Park races have become fashionable events in this city, and we may expeet to-day such a gathering of fashion as will put in the shade the proudest assemblages in the seagirt isle, where racing has been for ages an honored institution. Reported Disaffection in the Spanish Army.?One of our latest cable despatches has it that the officers of the Spanish army are preparing to pronounce against the Republic and to summon the qld Cortes to reassemble. If this report is founded in fact we may ex pect at any moment to hear of lively times in Spain. It is a notorious fact that in all pre vious Spanish revolutions the army has been the controlling power. It is just as notorious that not one of the members of the present republican government is prominently con nected with the army. The late elections have resulted more largely in favor of the Republic than the conservatives deemed possible. If the officers are disappointed by the elections lit in Art ttart guar, fell to the conclusion that, if they are to strike at all or strike effectively, they most strike at onoe. The revolt of the army would most certainly be dangerous to the Bepnblio; but the report must be further oonflrmed before we are satisfied of its truth. The Walworth Horr?r-Th? Coroner's lnqueat. The testimony given at the Coroner*s in quest yesterday as to the facts and circum stances connected with the Walworth tragedy fully sustains us in our first impressions?that this case is without a parallel in the daring and offensive presumption of the assassin, and that never was there, among civilized men or savages, a more unnatural, deliberate, remorseless and utterly revolting murder. We look in vain among all the horrible inventions of fiction for anything more frightful or de testable than this cold-blooded, merciless and cowardly killing of the father by the son. According to the testimony of Mr. More head, a boarder whose room was within hear ing of an ordinary conversation from the door Of the room where the murder was committed, the parley between father and son before the firing was brief, for that shortly after the door had closed upon the victim the firing com menced; that there were four shots in rapid succession; that the witness heard no talking nor sounds of scuffing before the firing took place; that with every shot there was a star tling cry of murder, such an exclamation as

any one would make under the influence ot terror, and that the body of the mur dered man was found lying within twenty inches of the door. The statement of the murderer in his own defence bears out this testimony of Mr. Morehead, that the conversation between father and son was brief. "When he came into my room," stir's this fledgling of a murderer. "I asked him to sit down; he did so. I spoke to uitn of his conduct, and said, 'Promise me that you will neither threaten my mother nor insult her or any of the family any further.' He answered me, 'I promise,' but with a look which to my mind implied contempt, and the reverse of au intent Jo keep? the promise. He had just before put his nalld uj> to his^ breast as if to pull out a pistol. I am unconscious of having fired more than three tidies. He closed on n*> rapidly. His grasp was upon me when I fired the last time. I do not think ho said anything during the whole interview cxcopt what I have stated." The conversation then was very briof. The father listened to the demand of the son and promised compliance; but the look connected with the promiso implied contempt, and that, look was the death warrant of the unsuspect ing father from his first-born, who had pre pared himself for his deadly work. That the father was wholly taken by surprise is evident from his unarmed condition. It does not ap pear that he had even a cane as a defensive weapon against the possibility of an assault, and it does appear that his only resort, as a last chance for his life, when, perhaps, already wounded to death by the first fire, was to close upon the assassin. All this is confirmed by that fearful cry of 4'Murder!" heard by Mr. Morehead at each discharge of the pistol. It was, he truly says, the exclamation that any one would make under the influence of terror. Utterly defenceless, mangled and bleeding, the victim of this hide ous crime had no other resource than the wild, despairing cry of "Murder!"?the cry for any help within hearing against the treach erous hand of his own son. The offensive "look" of the father which cost him his life, we hold, was perfectly natural, considering the relation in which the parties stood towards each other. The father, doubtless, thought, wheu the promiso of good behavior was exacted ot him:?"Well, this is cool?this chango of authority of the father over this stripling to the stripling over the father ; but he appears to be inclined to make a scene of it, and, to avoid a scene, I will yield to anything he may demand. He is my son, and it is, therefore, impossible that he can have any designs upon my life." But that awful cry of "Murder !" in the next moment dispelled all these parental delusions ; and such is the lesson of this Walworth horror. But the most fearful feature of the whole affair is the appar ently self-satisfied conscience of the murderer. It impresses every witness of his bearing under this heavy crime with the idea that he esteems himself a hero; that he has done a meritorious deed of blood ; that he has vin dicated the honor of his family, and that he is a champion of filial devotion. This may be insanity ; but, if so, it is a form of insanity too serious to be trifled with as an excuse for tho crime, and too dangerous to society to be considered as an offset to the awful murder for which the prisoner is held to answer. The Savage Wab in Cuba cannot be better illustrated than in the infamous and impo tent vengeance taken by the Spanish volun teers on the corpse of the patriot, Agramonte. The body, we are informed, was filled with petroleum and burnod. This is a deed worthy of the most barbarous days of the forefathers of the Spaniards on the African side. The ashes of the patriot arc now kept for a trophy in the Casino Espaflol of Puerto Principe. The ghoulish hideonsness of this act is only too much in keeping with the Spanish character. Meanwhile the war goes on. By telegram from Havana we have informa tion, on the authority of Spanish official despatches, that a severe battle has just been fonght in the Mauzanillo region between tho Cuban insurrectionist forces and the troops of the Madrid liepublic. The losses were very heavy on both sides. The Cubans are said to have had one hundred and fifty-five men killed, and the government forces admit a loss of twenty-three killed and sixty-five wounded. A Hitch at Albany in the Shpfi.t Bill.? Speaker Cornell, of the Assembly, and Lieutenant Governor Robinson, presiding officer of the Senate, decline to sign tho Supply bill, on the ground that there is cause to believe that the bill was tampered with or doctored by some interested parties after it went into the hands of the Conference Com mittee. The Conference Committee are, there fore, called upon to look into the bill as passed, in order to ascertain if there was any doctoring of the document by some unknown reviser on the committee. Should it appear that the bill has been doctored the Governor may be compelled to call an extra session of the Legislature, from which, unless impera Jfcnlr mme* Mtm wk'1 Tfc? Buk of 'b?|1mi m tmw. Bailing the rate of discount by the Bask of England, or, as the financiers and stock dealers of London call it, "patting on the screws," is an operation to which that insti tution invariably resorts when a financial crisis is imminent or when there is actually or prospectively an unusual drain of specie from England. At times, too, the action of the Bank is not so well understood, and arises from a variety of causes, thus having to the uninitiated the appearance of capriciousness. But it is regulated by laws or rules of manage ment as fixed as those of nature. The barom eter is not more sensitive under the influence of atmospheric changes than the action of the Bank from financial and commercial causes, and from causes often extending much farther than Great Britain. This action, too, is frequently in anticipation of events, not always foreseen by many people, just as the barometer falls, sometimes before there is a cloud in the sky, to indicate a coming storm. But the proximate cause generally is the outflow of specie from the vaults of the Bank or from England. Sometimes the Bank puts on the screws to check overtrading or excessive speculation. Raising the rate of discount just now to seven per cent, which in England is a very high rate, seems to be anomalous, tor the world is at peaoe and there are no signs of war, and the trado of the Kingdom is moat prosperous. The immediate cause, and apparently the only one, for the action of the Bank is, then, the transfer of specie from England to the Conti nent of Europe to meet the financial transac tions of France and Germany pertaining to the war indemnity. Wo are led to this view of the matter from the fact that, while the Bank of England is losing its specie, the Bank of France has been receiving a large incroase. The balance of trade in favor of France may also have had some effect. Money, too, ap pears to be scarce in England, there not being enough to meet the demands of busineas, as the government has authorized the Bank to issue six millions sterling of its reserve notes, an unusual proceeding, in order to give relief to the pub lic. All this, however, is probably only tem poratyTfor^lile ^there is peace and such general prosperity this high rate of discount cannot remain long/ '*? ?, ; PERSONAL INTELLIGENCE , Lord Napier, of Magdala, is travelling in India.

WILLIAM A. RICHARDSON, Secretary. The Payment of Cotton Claims by the Secretary of the Treaiary, The law directing the Secretary of the Treasury to pay the net proceeds of cotton unlawfully seized after June 30, 1865, was approved May 18, 1872, and reqnlred that all petitions should be filed within six months thereafter, on or belore November 1?, 1872. Many petitions which had been duly signed and sworn and placed in the mail before November 18, did not reaoh Washington until after that date. They wore, however, sent to the Secretary of the Treasury, and recorded as of the date when re ceived. In reply to an inquiry and argument of the point involved, whether in two important cases as filed the petitions would be regarded aa filed in time, the Secretary has decided that no petition or claim under the act of Congress which was not received in the Treasury Department on . jor before the 18th day November, ~J87? cliT garded as having been filed within six nionths Sfter the passage of the act, and that any snob claliidTeodlvyd in the Department after November 18 cannot be fcflESUiered by the Secretary of the Treasury. ' J It is the opinion of tbtf 4?e?t informed lawyers here that the time for flilng i^itions^ both in cotton cases before the Secretary of ttlfi Treasury and ror stores and supplies beforo the Soothers Claims Commissioners, will be extended by the next Congress. No Charges Against the Commissioner of Pensions. The Secretary of the Interior says the report that charges have been filed and are pending against the Commissioner of Pensions is utterly unfounded and untrue. FIGHT WITH THE APACHES. A Formidable Outbreak ? Lieutenant Almy Killed. San Francisco, June 6, 1873. Advices from Arizona this afternoon state that the Indian Agent at San Carlos, Major Larrabee, had some difficulty with the Apaches. They under took to Kill him with spears. He ran to Lieutenant Almy's tent. The latter, with six soldiers, went to the agency with him. They went into Larrabee's tent. Larrabee and Almy came out of the tent, Larrabee in advance, when the Apaches fired on them. Almy received three bul lets, which passed through his body. He fell dead without a groan, Larrabee was untouched and retired Into the tent. Four of the six soldiers ran. One of the two who remained was prevented from shooting by Conception, a Mexican Interpreter at the agency. The Apaches fled across the river. It is probable that many of them have taken to the mountains. A messenger to Governor Satford, wh5 left the reservation half an hour after the occurrence, says that the ma jority of the Indians were there when he left. Eske Vonseln, a noted chief, hail become angry with the agent several days previous, and had left Sun Carlos with a large band some time before the murder. The Indians fired about forty shots at Larrabee and,Almy. It has been generally thought for some time that an outbreak was inevitable. Almy was born tu the State of Massachusetts, and promoted to be a First Lieutenant of the Filth cavalry in April, 1860. HIGH CHPR0HI3M.
