KILLED BY A REBEL.
PRESIDENT HIPPOLYTE SAID TO
HAVE BEEN SHOT.
l illuminate nra-cired from J nil
and Slaughtered tn t!i
JCf.w Yokk. June 17. First Mate A.
Bishop, of the steamship Alvo, which
arrived from Jacmel, Navassa and other
Haytian ports to-day, says that on June
C a vessel, which had been at Port-au-Prince
during the insurrection, reached
Navassa ana reported that President
Hippolyte had lieen shot and killed by
one of the insurgents. The re
port had not been further sub
stantiated when the Alvo sailed.
The story of the revolt and subsequent
fiurder of Rignaud, which .this vessel
brought agree entirely with the reports
which have already been published.
Hippolyte is supposed to have been
killed on June S or 4. The Alva did not
touch at Port-au-Prince, but lay for two
days in Jacmel harbor, and her captain
and passenjrers obtained from many
authentic sources an account of the in
surrection in June.
The first news of the outbreak
reached Jacmel on June 4. The town
lies on the other side of the island and
is about fifty miles from Port-au-lrince.
Early on Thursday a troop of soldiers
in fall marching1 order came into town.
From their uniforms it was seen that
they belonged to Mippolyte's own regi
ment. They marched straight
to the jail. which stands
on an peu space in the
center of thw town. tLx polit
ical prisoner who had leen concerned
in plots or insurrections at various
times were confined there. The cap
tain of the troop, aiter a few words
with the officers in charge of the prison,
marched with his men to the cells
where the prixmers were mrrned and
without a word of xphndrin
dragged them out into the open
siiure. Most of the prisoners were
asleep at the time and were led out in
to the sunlight half dazed, liefore
they could fairly realiae their position
the captain gave the word of command,
the soldiers dryw back a few paces,
raised thtfir ritles to their shoulders
and fired a volley. The prisoners fell
to the groun! without a pruan. Each
was. inst-antly killed, i'.y this time half
the city was flockin;; toward the prison
anl rumors flew from mouth to
mouth of the battle which had taken
pltiee at Port-au-Prince. The news of
the murder of Cigand. the French mer
chant, aroused great indignation. The
inhabitants, however. wre afraid to
take fcides in the atlair until further
particulars arrived. Later in the day
the soldiers returned to l'ort-au-l'rince.
excitement prevailed tit
