The President, Santana, offered to refer the
matter to arbitrators. The Danish functionary
declined, giving the Dominicians twenty-four
hours to comply with his demands, with the
understanding that a refusal would be followed
by a blockade of the port. The Dominicians
forthwith decided in favor of war, and com
menced manning their batteries. There wan
but one Danish war vessel in port.

Lamar, to use them for the defense of Ameri
