Mr. ltarry Sullivan happened to be born
in Ireland. That was an aflair over which
hu had no control. Many of his coutitry
men, naturalized here, witli an honest
nridu in the fame of their distinguished
countryman, have manifested their deslru
to signalize ins seconu visit Here dv a
hearty reception. If in some of their
MiL'L'estlons ihey overstepped the bounds
of propriety It was not his fault, lie
was 3,000 miles away and had no more
control over this than he had in felecting
tiic place oi ins uirtii.
lint the attempt to excite prejudice
ajralust hhn because lie was born in Ire
laud is peculiarly unjust and ungener
ous, particularly at a time when the press
Is lull ol praiso over tuu Hospitality anu

In generous and brotherly rivalry for tho
laurels which they won. What would
we Americans say if the people of Dub

ol their welcome mid tried to array the
Irish Hag against the American nag,
which was waved by thousamls in tliu
M reels of Dublin to fcuch an extent that
General D.ikin very naturally expressed
hU inability to imagine where they all
camo from !so city in America ever
welcomed an American with more heart
felt enthusiasm than thu city of Dublin.
Thu lato Mr. Hackett took particular

of their foreign origin? If you put Mr.
Davenport against Mr, Sullivan why not
put somo American dramatist against

distinguished artist, an Irish gentleman
and an honor to his profession. lie
comes to contend in generous rivalry for
tho priio of American approbation on
Ills efforts, which have wun similar hon

The United Nates and Mexican clalrni
commission, It Is well known, have tor
some time been engaged In adjudicating
('IhIiiw iimiIit n tri'iitf butWCCU thu twit
I rounlfles In which the citizens of either
republic have claims against tliu citizens
or government of the other. The com
mission consists of two commissioners
one appointed by tho government of tho
United States, and the other by the gov
ernment of Mexico, which commission
investigate thu evidence presented by the
respective clulminu, aud should they
agrvu on an award, It is final, but should
they not agree, the claim In then referred
to tne isntisit miuUter, air tuwuru
Thornton, a thu uuipkc, whose award
Among these claims are those of the
heirs and relations of Gen. Monroe Par
sons, MuJ. Statidlsli and Col. Courow, all
citizens of Missouri, who were killed by
the Mexicans, ami Irom a friend of the
claimants it is ascertained the umpire,
among oilier case, Fend in the follow
ing awards, which are not to be publicly
proclaimed, according to the treaty,
until the tlrt day of February, 1870.
The awards referred to are as follows:
To MuJ. StandUh thu sum of $10,000
without Interest, S1..VJ0 with Interest at
G ter cent, tier annum irom the 15th of
August, 18G.'i, all hi Mexican gold dollars.
To Mary Ann Courow $.i0,000 without
Interest and $300 with interest at 0 jier
cent, from 'August 13, 1M5, all in Mexi
can gold dollar.
To the heirs of Gen. Parsons .$50,000,
without interest, and $5,000 with inter
est, at 0 iter cent, from August 10, 1803,
likewise in Mexican gold dollars. Mrs.
brandish U the matron ot thu Illlud insti
tution. Mrs. Courow resides in Itlch
moud. Hay county, Mo., with five or six
children, while thu heirs of Gen. Parsons
reside at .Jellereon City. The above
named claimants proved before the com
mission that on the night of thu loth of
August, 1863. Gen. Parsons, MuJ. Stand
Ish and Col. Courow, while encamped on
thu San Juan nvei, they then being en
route Irom Monterey to Matamoras, for
the purpote of making their way via
Cuba to thu United States, were surpris
ed, murdered and rubbed by a detach
ment of soldiers of the Mexican repub
lic, under the command ol Col. Planton
Sanchez, whp was attached to the army
of Gen. Kscabedo. It was shown
that after being murdered their
bodies were dragged and thrown
into the San Juan liver. The
Mexicans supposed, or claimed to be
lieve, that Parson's parly wen1 enemies
aud thu spies of Archduke Maximilian,
but on finding their mistake thu com
mander ordered his troops to keep silence
with regard to the death of these foreign
ers, because they had been killed under a
oeitei mat mey were spies, anu tney
wanted it to be thought they were so.
The testimony of Gen. John B. Clark,
who traveled with and was encamped
some distance from Parson's .command,
wa., lu auiMtuitcc. that on hearing the
nolse oftho conflict li repaired to the
Fpoi ami saw several Ucad. Mexicans! vlng
around on the battle-field, while they
discovered the trails on the ground
along which bodies had been
dragged to the bank of the Sun Juan and
cast into the river. Gen Parsons
had horses and vouipagea, u
goiti waicu, anu nu was also kuowu to
have $3,000 in gold, which was gobbled
up by the Mexicans. It was clearly
shown that the murders occurred within
the Hues of the Liberal army, but an at
tempt was made by Mexican counsel to
show that Col. Sanchez wus seven hun
dred miles distant from the scene at the
time. 'I lils attempt at an alibi was re-
ouueu oy ine eviuence oi .nr. hiiiers, a
gentleman belonging to the American
consulate at Vera Cruz, who testified that
lu 18C0. Sanchez, since dead, while In his
cups admitted tiiat hu commanded tliu
tiarty wlio killeU tliu Americans, and ex
hibited as a trophy of the exploit the
watch which l):loiigcU to Gen. Parsons.
Mr. Sillers also saw a monument erected
near the spot of the trajjedy over the
murdered Americans, which the country
people suid were taken out ot the river.
Tliu complainants In their petition
show that l'arsons and Standih were
lawyers and Courow a civil engineer, all
of thein capable of producing an income
Hutllcient to maintain their families In po
sitions ot the highest respectability and
to give their children a liberal education.
They submit that an amount equal to a
capital which at six per cenu would pro
duce $0,000 per annum would Ihj a rea
sonable indemnity by the commission.
In this connection may be mentioned
another large claim that of the La Alro
Mining company, composed largely of
citizens of Mhsouri, for $2,100,000. The
company opened a silver mine about 120
milei buck of Mosaey'a landing. In tho
state of Durango, and was operating
under a charter from New York. Tho
company had a paid-up block of $2.10.000.
Among, the stockholder were Ur. Por
ter, $5,000; Gen. Dartholow
and John D. Terry, $10,000
each. Tho company had commenced
shipping silver when the miners were at
tucked by the Mexicans, some of them
killed and tho refit driven out. The
claim is a good one and a favorablu re
ward expected. Among other Missou
rians having large claims lb Judge Sam
uel Montgomery, a captain lu thu battle
of Buena Vista, who alter tho Mexican
war embarked In merchandise and was
robbed of a largu amount ol money anil
goods. The amount ot his claims is
