We have received the following letter from Allen F. Owen, esq., our Consul at Havana, and submit it without comment to the consid eration of his countrymen: Consulate o? the "United States, 1 Havana, September 16, 1861. J To the Editor of the Republic. Sir: In your weekly issue of the 28th ult., you do me tho justice to object to my condem nation without a hearing, and to say that I am probably able to explain, to the satisfaction of my countrymen, my omission to act relative to I the execution of the prisoners who were shot here on the 16th ult. I do not doubt that I shall satisfy every im partial mind that I am undeserving censure, and that I had no opportunity of doing any thing in behalf of the unfortunate men who met so sad a fate. I reside about four miles from this place, and not being well on the morning of the 16th, did not reach my oftiee till some time after ten o'clock, where, for the first time, I heard of the I capture of about fifty of the men who had come with Lopet to this island in the steamer Pampero. I at the same time heard that the prisoners bad been tried, found guilty, con demued, ordered to be executed, the order for their execution sent forward, and that they were about being removed from the harbor, where they were, to the place of execution. Shortly afterwards, the American residing here, who, it is said, called on me, came and mentioned the subject to me, when I said to him that it was too late, and that I could do nothing; that I should not have time to get permismon and see the prisoners. Of this I felt perfectly satisfied at the time, and I have since been confirmed in this opinion by the highest authority in the island, who informed me that the exeoution, which had already been ordered before I reached .the city, would not have been postponed for me to have an inter view with the prisoners, inasmuch as all I oould have asked to be permitted to do had already been done by a gentleman known to some of the prisoners, and for whom they had sent. Soon after the American referred to left my office, 1 received the information that a gentlo man known to some of the prisoners had been sent for by them, and to him they had delivered the articles and messages they desired to be conveyed to their friends. It was but a short time afterwards that I sent to the palaco of the Governor and Captain General, and beard that the prisoners had then been executed. You will thus seft that I had no time to act, and that it was not in my power to do any thing for the unfortnnate men who had been induced to invade Cuba with the expectation that they would find the whole island in a state of revolution, and that they would be received with open arms by the whole native population at lca?t. The charge of indiffcrcnce to the dreadful condition of such a number of men, the bitter est enemy I have on earth will not believe; and all must believe it a base falsehood and an un founded calumny. If it were allowable on such an occasion, I would most solemnly declare before God that, in my judgment, at the time and under the cir cumstances, it was not in my power either to have an interview with the prisoners, or to have done any thing on their behalf. I am, very respectfully, your obedient ser vant, A. F. Owen. We purpose making a few comments here, taking his paragraphs in consecutive order. 1. We have invariably refrained from com menting upon Mr. Owen's conduct, in the hope that he would be able to explain, to the satisfaction of his countrymen, his omission tc act, &c. 2. Upon reading his defence we do not feel ao free from doubt on thi^Bubject. 8. This paragraph is ridiculous and absurd. The times were exciting; all Cuba was alarmed; the Cuban military in large numbers were in pursuit of the Americans; their arrest was hourly expectcd; and sick or well, the American Consul should have been in Havana at all hours, prepared to act in a moment, should an emer gency arise. But since ho did not choose to do so, is it possible that ho had no person in his employ, no friend, no one to repair to him promptly with the information ? Is it possible that no American or other person at Havana thought of summoning the American Consul at a moment when the lives of fifty of his country men were to be summarily sacrificed? Did the authorities and the people of Cuba hold him in such contempt as totally to forget that our country had a representative at Havana ? Wafi there another person within ten miles of Ha vana who did not know of the wonderful events in progress there? It all looks Improbable. But, on arriving in town at ton o'clock, he heard that " the prisoners had been tried, found guilty, condemned, ordered to be executed, the order for their execution sent forward, and that they were about being removod from the harbor where they were, to the place of execution." Now, we admit that this was tolerably hurried work, though some of our most moral and ele vated contemporaries are shocked at our saying so. Hut let us proceed. 4. His excuse for not acting then was, that it was too late; but he has the shameless effront ery to acknowledge that he made no effort what ever to tee the prisoners. If this be a dc/ence of Mr. Owen by himself, we would like to sec so wonderful a story us his confession would prove! 5. Ho tells us: "It was but a short time afterwards that I sent to the palace of tho Gov ernor and Captain General, and heard that the prisoners had then been executed 1" Now this is too despicably drivelling and contemptible! Twenty thousand soldiers and Creoles had wit nessed the butchery of fifty-two brave, gallant, and worthy men ; their remains had been dealt with as though they were so many slaughtered swine; the populace and soldiery of Havanu were gloating over the infernal scene ; the streets of the city were thronged with triumph ant demons, carrying trophic in their bauds; "joy pervaded all classes," as the Spanish ac counts assured us; and yet it was then that the American Contul sent to the palace, and learned that the prisoners had been executed! 1! 6. This is a triumphant conclusion from the foregoing facts! 7. The charge of indifference is a falsehood 1 and a calumny! Of course it is. Who now dare say otherwise? Have we not the proofs of the utmost concern, of the most active pa triotism, benevolence, and humanity ? 8. He fills the measure of his infamy, and casts himself into a still lower pit of loath some debasement, by daring to solemnly de clare before God that it was not in his power to have an interview with the prisoners, "or to have done any thing on their behalf." This defence by Mr. Owen of himself is all that was needed to prove him guilty of con duct so vile and base as to render him worthy the execrations of his countrymen and of man kind. He is either the most abject and craven of men, or the most docile and pliant tool that ever obeyed a master's behests. There are proofs of this, and they shall be given. Let us first give place to the following, which ! will explain itself: Havana, September 11, 1851. j To the Editor of the Republic: Having been requested by a very large por tion of the prisoners of the late Cuban expedi tion to write to their friends, informing them of their situation and good health, I have thought it best to throw my observations, which must necessarily be general in their principal | features, into the form of a circular, nnd I have now the honor to address you this at the request of all the prisoners. The prisoners were brought to this city in different lots, and as fast as they arrived were shaved of their hair, chained two together, and | placed all in one long saloon in the prison. During the first few days it was exceedingly difficult to obtain permission to visit them. The British Consnl, Joseph T. Crawford, esq., did so on the first day, and accompanied by his secretary. Mr. W. Sydney Smith, who has never ceased in his exertions in their behalf, gave i them the first cheering words. On the next day, Mr. Allen F. Owen, the American Consul, asked for and obtained permission, and, as 1 was subsequently informed by the prisoners, told them that "the President had proclaimed them without the pale of the law, and he could io nothing for them." During several days our r>nly mean* of contributing to the amelioration of their condition was through Mr. Smith, who continued to visit them twice daily, taking them small comforts and speaking in their behalf, by which means he improved in a very great de gree their situation. He look up a subscription among the English residents for the purpose of providing extra clothing for those who were British subjects; and the secretary of the Ger man society, in consequence of receiving a let ter Oom Capt Schlicht, went to Bee them, and ?ubarqu?t>tly provided for the Germans in the same manner that the English Consul hud pro vided for his countrymen. I was not ablo to obtain permission to see thorn until Friday, 5th instant, at noon, when I found that twenty-five had that morning been scut to tho hospital, and that some low of the others had had their chains taken off?for what reason I could not learn. The Americans and some others I found very much dispirited in consequence of the language Mr. Owen had held to them, and from seeing others so much better cared for; and I did what I could to cheer them, assuring them 1 would do my ut most to have them as well provided for as their more fortunate companions hod boen. On leaving the prison I spoke to several of my friends about raising funds for tho prison ers; and so great was the interest shown in their behalf that our efforts were crowned with tho utmost success. I take this occasion to pay a just tribute to those Cuban gentlemen who so generously provided me with funds, t without which my efforts would have been bar ren; and also to many American friends, who contributed not only money but personal effects. I would gladly mention names, but the impos sibility of naming all would render the particu larizing of a few apparently invidious, and I will therefore cito but two who are connected with Lhe press; those are Mr. White, of tho New York Courier and Enquirer, and Mr. Cal lahan, of tho New Orleans Picayune. To these gentlemen, in company with many others, much praise is due. On Saturday the prisoners received several visits, and a sum of money wherewith to pur chase bread. Mr. Smith also took to them cigars and other comforts. On Sunday morning thoir chains were taken off; they were allowed to bathe, and I was enabled to send them their extra clothing. They were in excellent spirits, and as many of their countrymen had now obtained permission to visit them, and they found they were not abandoned by their friends, they were quite gny. Writing materials were to day allowed them at the request of Mr. Smith, and many of them wrote to their homos. They all re ceived a small sum of money to purchaso such trifles as they might fancy; on this day they reeeived information that Commodore Parker was not allowed to see them, which they re grotted exceedingly, and during the afternoon they had a short visit from Mr. Owen. On Monday morning, as they were to embark early, Mr. Smith, Mr. Callahan, and myself visited them before day; they had coffee and bread beforo going on board. Besides what they received from the government, each man had a pea-jacket, a woollen shirt, a pair of stockings, and a tin pot; and on board ship were placed for their use eight hundred and twcnty-fivo pounds of chocolate, two boxes of tobacco, two barrels of vinegar, and some small stores, and the sum of seven hundred and thirty-five dollars was placed in the hands of Captain Ortiz, of the Primera de Guatemala, for general distribution on arrival at the port of destination. Besides this, the German So ciety gave Capt. Ortiz one hundred and thirty six dollars for the Germans, and several per sous left sums for individuals. They embarked in high spirits and excellent health, all desiring a most affectionate farewell to be sent to their friends, with assurances of their high hopes for a speedy release. Thoso who remain here, awaiting ship, will follow their companions in a few days. Those who are in the hospital arc all doing well, and are very well cared for by every one around them. They also have been allowed writing materials, and their friends will proba bly receive letters from them as early as they may receive this. The Captain General has been very considerate and kind in his orders relative both to sick and well, and their attend ants and jailors have treated them with much consideration. In regard to exertions for their liberation, I would suggest to you some prompt effort in their behalf, through tho American minister at Madrid, for the reason that the proximate ac couchment of the Queen will afiord a most ad vantageous opportunity to grant tuem all a freo pardon; and the liberation of three here would induce us to suppose that a like boon might bo obtained for all. I have the honor to be, respectfully, your very obedient servant, J. S. Turasrbb. Tho Republic and tho T*UiUigenc*ry of this morning, enter into a brief defence of the Presi dent and the Consul from tho allegations con tained in the foregoing circular. Tho It-public says: ?? Not having the pleasure of any further ac quaintance with the writer than we derive from the letter itself, we cannot be so unjust to Mr. Owen as to give circulation to its injurious im plications, without stating that the authority, as far as wo are concerned, is to all intents as if it were entirely anonymous." We have no acquaintance with Mr. Thrasher, and never heard of him before; but his circu lar contains prima facie evidence of its truth fulness, and that it has otnanated from ? hu mane and benevolent man. Its declarations are, moreover, confirmed, or at least strengthened, by the statement Mr. Owen has vouchsafed to make. Tho Baltimore American, however, of this morning, states that the writer is the edi tor of the Faro Indutirtal, a Havana newspaper which wss recently suppressed by order of the Captain General. The 1!cpublic proceeds to reason npon the probabilities of Mr. Thrasher's statements as relates to Mr. Owen, and concludes that they mu?t l>e erroneous because it is improbable that "a gentleman so intelligent as Mr. Owen could have drawn tho inferences attributed to him Tr?>rn the proclamation of the Prerident, &c. He fore that proclamation was made, we could lot have believed that a gentleman so intelli gent as Mr. Fillmore could have permitted itg publication. Tho following paragraph from the Republic is ?ignificant of the views and policy of the Ad ministration on this subject: ? After the illegal enterprise, however, had oecu consummated, and when American citi zens were in prison in a foreign oountry, charged with having been engaged in It, a very lifferent state of things had arisen. Wero they all guilty hocause they were accused? \nd if taken all In JfagriUiti dr/irtn, were they jut off from the sympathies and the pardoning power of their Government 1 Is not a govern ment, like an individual, frequently called upon to interfere in behalf of offender.-' ^ho have forfeited all claim upon society ?
