THE VIRGINIUS
Full Account of Her
Capture and Doom
of her Ill-fated
Passengers.
The Captured Executed.
A letter Irom Havana gives
an account of tlio sleamer Vir
ginius, from which it appears
that on October 30th the Span
ish Consul at Kingston advised
the Government at Santiago
de Cuba ilnit the Virginius was
in the vicinity of Morrant Bay.
The Spanish war steamer Tor
nado had that morning arrived
at Santiago de Cuba, and, lour
hours alter Ihe Governor re
ceivert information of the Vir
ginias, went in search of her.
The following day tiie Torna
do, under full snil, and with
but little steam, as some blight
repairs were being made to her
machinery, enme in night ui
the Virginius, which probably
supposed the Tornado o be a
sailing vessel, as her course
was not changed. On the Tor
nado every effort whs made tc
hasten the repairs they were
engaged in, and at two o'clock
the cliiel engineer pronounced
them completed. All the steam
possible was immediately got
up, and the vessel headed for
the Virginius, soon reaching a
speed of lourteen knots, and
slowly gaining upon her.
The Virginius had, in ihe
meantime, kept her course hut
divining the hostile intentions
of the tornado, changed It to
ward amaca, and being out of
coal Commenced to burn pe
troleum, greaie, lat, and other
combustibles from the provis
ions on board, stlch as hams,
etc. Night closed in and the
vessels were in the same rela
tive positions, the Tornado,
howeVer, gaining.
As soon as they got within
gunshot the Tornano fired a
gun, followed by three other
shots and shell. This brought
the Virginius to, and two arm
ed boat, from the Tornado
came alongside, took posses
son of the vessel, and made
prisoners of all on board. At
the time of the capture the
Virginius was flying the Amer
ican flag.
But this was pulled down by
the Spanish officer, and the
Spanish ensign hoisted in its
place, although the papers of
the vessel, duly dispatched for
Colon, were banded to him af
ter the capture. The next two
hours were employed in trans
ferring some of the prisoners
to the Tornado, and putting a
pnie-crew on the Virginius
At midnight the two vessels
started for Santiago de Cuba,
and arrived the following day
at five o'clock in the afternoon,
having been joined by the
Spanish steamer Cantfcbro.
Upon their arrival in port
the intelligence spread like
lightning, and attracted an im
mense crowd of people. The
The Government Palace and
other public buildings were il
luminated, and f!l the authori
ties, civil and military, went to
felicitate the Governor Bur-
riel, upon the new, who, in
the evening, gave a brilliant
reception. The vessels were
surrounded in the b;iy by a
number of boats filled wilh
music anil cheering volunteers
The festivities were kept op
late into the niht.
The following day, Novem
ber 2d, a court-martial was
held on board the Tornado,
which commenced at nine and
terminated at four. All were
tried na pirates, and the find
ings of the court and sentences
were sent to the Captain Gen.

were transferred to the jail of
the city, escorted by a force of
100 volunteers and a number
of marines.
General Burnol, it is said)

oners should be turned over to

Captain and crew, who should
be sent to Havana, at the dis
posal of tlio Comtnahdate-Gen.

that within twenty-four hours
afterwards all should be tried
and executed, in order to avoid
any complication with the ex
terior Wat Is foreign interven
tion. lie also detained a telegram
which the United Slates con
sul decided lo forward to the
United States Consulate at
Kingston, reporting tho cap
ture and inquiring as to the
nationality ol Ihe Virginius.
The Virginius had her papers
in order and was dispatched
for Colon, all her passengers
appearing on the papers as la
borers for a railroad building
there.
All accounts diiler as to the
position ot the position of the
Virginius at the time ot her
capture. One gives tho cap
lure as having keen effected at
twenty miles Irom Jamaica and
the official account states
twelve hiiles. The Diarro? tales
it at twenty three miles, the
journals at Santiago de Cuba
at eight miles and twenty miles,
and the version of the Voce de
Cuba is twelve miles.
The commander of the Tor
nado publicly stated in Santia

go de Cuba, left Jamaica on the
24 1 h ult.
It was the intention of the
expeditionists to sail direct for
Cuba, but slight damage to the
machinery obliged them to en
ter some port of Hay ti. This
they left, touching at Port au
Prince, Hay ti, and another port
of the same island, until tho
30th, upon which day tbey con
cluded to sail lor Cuba and at
tempt landing, and on this duy
the information which proved
so disastrous to those on board
was given the authorities at
Santiago de Cuba,
SPANISH ST' RY OF TDK CAPTTJRI.
A dispatch from Havana, of
the 16lb, gives the story ot the
capture of the Virginius, as
obtained from Spanish sources
and says: "The most remarka
ble feature of the capture is
absolute non-resistance of the
Virginius when overhauled.
"The Tornado was cruising,
on the 31st of October, under
sail, about eighteen miles from
the Cuban coast In the after
noon she sighted a steamer,
about sir miles distant, head
ing toward her. The captain
ordered steam to be got up,
and soon the strange steamer
was headed for the coast of Ja
maca, distant about one hun
dred miles. The Spanish cap
tain suspected that the Heara
was the Virginius, and ordered
his engineers to get up all the
steam possible, even it they
burst the boilers, and drive the
engines at Iheir utmost speed.
The Tornado, under full head
way, gained steadily; but night
coming on,, the Spanish cap
tain feared he should lose the
vessel.
The moon rising, he was en
abled, by keeping all hands on
deck, at the mat-thead, and in
the rigging, to keep in sight
Until the corvette had neared
her sufficiently to bring her
guns to bear. A shot was fired,
but the stranger made no re
pljj and four others were Bred
in succession, the last at 10 p.
m., and immediately the steam
er which had led the corvette
a chase of nearly eight hours,
hove to.
Two boats were lowered, and
without resistance, the Virgini
us was boarded. The Span
iards took possession by haul
ing down the American flag,
which the Virginius had dis
played throughout ihe chase,
and hoisted the Spanish flag
instead. Capt. Fry, in (he usu
al manner, handed over the
steamers' papers lor the exam
ination of the officer in com
mand of the boarding party,
and that oulccr at once took
charge ot them, and both ves
sels were headed for Santiago
de Cuba.

An Intelligent Cat.
We hear many stories of ca
nine intelligence, but thejst o
ries of leline smartness are less
numerous. Policeman Uayton,
of that city, however, lias a cat
which yesterday gave evidence
ot mo'e than ordinary cat
sense. This cat is of the Tliora
as persuasion. Yesterday this
cat camj to its master, and, by
scratching at his legs and "yow
ing,' Intimated that there was
something up. Thinking that
this behavior ir. his cat indica
ted that he desired something
to eat, Mr. Uayton gave the
cat a slice of beef, when the
animal at once ran away with
it. In about a minute he re
appeared, and again began
begging. Mr. llayton thought
it strange that the cat was so
hungry, but cut for him anoth
er and larger slice of beef.
This the cat took in his mouth
and again took hlmsnlf off. Mr.
Uayton followed him, and wb
somewhat astonished to see
him go out upon the sidewalk
and drop the meat through a
knot-hole. On going to the
place and looking through the
knot-hole, Mr. Uayton found
under the walk three small
kittens, SO young that their
eyes were scarcely open. No
mother oat was near, nor was
there a place anywhere in the
vicinity where a cat could bave
found a hole through which to
have crawled under the walk.
It would seem that in his ram
bles Mr. Uayton's "Thorrjas"
had found the kittens, an5, sur
mising or understanding from
their cries that they were bun
gry, had set about providing
for their waotainttte manner
related above.
Twenty-six weddings a da
in Philadelpnia are among Hit
numerous signs of approach
