The Ylrginitu Affair.
The Virginius, a ship registered in tho
New York Custom llouso, Sep:. 23, 1870,
as the property of an American citizen,
was c.iptured on the Iut.h seas near
Jamaica by the Spanish man-of-war Tor
nado on. Oct. 3i, 1S73. The reason given
was that she was about to litruUmen and
arms in Cuba, which was theh-engaged in
the 10-years' war against Spdin.' At tho(
time of its capture the Virgtnius was'
f.yin? the American frag. She was taken
to Santiago.
President Grant at once remonstrated
with the Spanish Government, and
through the United States Mfnistcr to
Spain, Gen. Daniel E. Sickle, demanded
the release ci the Virginal- and her crew.
Spam was at that time a republic, under
President Castelnr, and whilehis Govern
ment whs a-sking for time to.tifctain infor
nation, and was making premises, tho,
Spanish authorities in Cubadetcrmineii
to take matters into their owajliand. On
Nov. "7, 1S7.':, the Captain of tho VirginiuSi
Joseph Pry, and i!5 of the crew were shot.
The next day 12 of the mo-t prominent
cf the passengers were ah.o shot. Tho
Captain-General of Cuba, GcrtDc Rodas,
d.rcctly sanctioned these miir'(fcrs.
When the news of "this aettMi became,
known in (his country theexcUement
was intense.- Meetings wer.c -held, and
the blood work was denounced.
President Grant authorized fbeputtinc
of the Nay on a war footing -'diplomatic;
relations were- on the point of'seyerancer
and war was imminent. President Caste-'
lar made the excuse that his orders 'w
stay proceedings were received too late to
prevent the crime.
At last, however, on Nov. 20, a. protocol
was signed between Secretary" Fish and?
xdmiral Polo, by which Spain agreed to
surrender the survh'ors of the crew andj
passengers of the Virginius, together withj
the ship, and to salute the flag of the.
United States on Dec. 25. If, however, itt
should be proved in the interval that the
Virginius had no right to fly tho United)
States flag the salute should be dis
pensed with, though Spain should dis
claim any intention to insult the flag
Three days before the time agreed on?
Secretary Fish announced himself as
satisfied that the Virginius had no righf
to fly the flag, and the salute was dis-,
pensed with. On Jan. 23 Admiral Pole
made the disclaimer agreed on.
The Virginius was delivered to tho
United States Navy at Bahia Honda on?
Dec. 16, with the American flag flying.;
She was, however, unseaworthy, and
encountering a heavy storm off Cape Fear
sank. The prisoners who survived were
surrendered on Dec. 18 at Santiago de
Cuba, and landed in safety in New York.
