NEV YORK, Jain. 22. --The \Vorld
this morning prints the fiull text of' Mn
ister Ai atta's statement ot the .Baltimore
affair t, Pedro MoUtI, the Chilean min
ister atWashington. This statementis
generally referred to as "Mat ta's inmult
ing note.' t bears dlate of Decemuber
11, and is as follows:
"Being acquamited with the report of
the Navy Department and the messa-m
of the president of the United States, I
deem it proper Io tell you that the inthr
mation upon which the said rei,ort and
messafc are tounded is erroneous and
deliberately untrue. Conecrnig the
refugees, they have never been threat
ened or treated with cruelty, nor has
there been any intention to take them
out of the legation or to ask that they
be delivered. Never has the louse or
the personof the plenipotentiary, not
withstanding the calculated indiseretions
and provocations, received any outrage,
as is proved by the eleven letters ot
September, October and November.
IConcerning the 14'ili0rs of the ildi
