New York, Dec. 9.
The Tribune, to-morrow, will pub
lish a letter from Havana, dated De
cember 4th, in which it is stated that
the popular opinion excited by Spanish
advices from the United States at one
time reached fever heat, but Is now
subsiding on the streets. Among the
volunteers and the lower order of
Spaniards there were threats of vio
lence, and at one time the mob actu
ally concluded to destroy the Virgin
ia, but were diverted therefrom by
the action of the officials. There is
no question but that all the Spaniards
on the island are averse to releasing
the Virginlus, and would not do it if
they were not absolutely compelled to
do so by those who prefer to surrender
the vessel. There are threats of burn
ing and scuttling, and so serious have
these been regarded that the guard on
the Virginias, which continues to be
at the navy yard, has been doubled,
and other extra precautions taken.
The officers of the navy keenly feel
their humiliation in the return of the
Virgiuius, and it has been proclaimed
in the newspapers that if the vessel is
given up all the officers of the Tornado
will resign all their grades and honors
and decorations and retire from the
service, and that many of the officers
of other war vessels will do the same
"When on 29th of November the pro
tocol was signed by Secretary Fish and
Admiral Polo, the agreement was con
clusive, and required no endorsement
of the Government of the United States
and Spain, as the basis had been pre
viously settled by them—the stipula
tion of time,'manner and place for the
surrender of the Virglnius and the sur
ving passengers and crew, etc., re
served in the protocol, was signed on
Monday. While the men will be de
livered to a United States vessel at
Santiago de Cuba, the vessel will be
delivered at some port other than Ha
vana, on Tuesday next, in daylight.
It is reported that the Pacific Mail
