PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, JULY 5, 1870. DOUBLE SHEET THREE CENTS. VOL. XIV NO. 3. FIRST EDITION rouxiTii or july. Jlow the Dat win Celebrated In thin (tltv The Old Soldiers' Meetlng-The lAst of Fires, Casualties, and Arrest. Independence Day is over, and with it has oc curred more than the usual number of casualties and arrests, while there was a noticeable absence of fires of any extent. Indeed, the Chief En gineer of the r Ire Department had occasion to give his personal attention to but a very few. The day, notwithstanding there was no celebra tion by either the military or the city authori ties, was generally well spent by our citizens who remained in town amidst the confusion in cident to the occasion. At an early hour Ches nut street was thronged, and daring the after noon it was with considerable dilliculty that one could get along that promenade. this was also the case with Eighth street, into which thorough fare the tide of people seemed to turn on their way nomewara. At an tne corners, ana especially in front of the State House, tbe venders of cakes, candy, and lemonado, ana the proprietors of lung-testers, lifting-machines, and electrical batteries, stationed themselves, and did a lively busincLS. Flags and bunting of all 6orts were flying in all directions, and served to brighten up the dull and hoavy atmosphere which prevailed in the early part of the day. Theyoungcr portion of the community did, as is usually the case, as they pleased, and discharged revolvers, cannon, guns, and pistols, and, as for fire-crackers, we venture to say there were more hold and set otf yesterday than on any two previous Fourths of July. The Mayor issued his order prohibiting this kind of work, but the juveniles in hundreds of instances set off the explosives right under the eyes of the police, who. we suppose, remembered that they too had been boys. There was a feeble attempt in some of the districts to stop It, but It was con ceded to be impossible to carry out the order emanating from Fifth and Chesnut streets. There were numbers of cases of drunkenness, but no general rows. A fight at Third nnd But tonwood streets is likely to result in the death of one man, and at another fight, in the lower part of the city, a policeman of the Third dis trict was badly cut. The various railroads and itteamboats were well patronized by people visiting suburban retreats where they might enjoy the day In peace and comfort. At the Union League the Declaration of Inde pendence was. read in the morning, and in the evening there was a fine display of fireworks, which was witnessed by a large crowd. The temperance people of Germantown held a mass-meeting at Hunting Park, which was well attended, as was also the case with the meeting at Angora. The Germantown Caledonian Club spent the !ay at Oakdale Park, performing the usual feats of strength. At Cedar Grove. Sylvester E. Megargee, Esq., read the declaration of Independence, and the Very Rev. Dr. Moriarty delivered an oration. The following comprise The Fires of the liny. Shad's coal yard. No. S03 N.

TEMPEIiANQE. mass meeting In Independence Square Yes terday JSpeeclies i'oeui InterestluK Pro ceedings. Yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock a temper ance mass meeting, under the auspices of the Temperance Blessing, was held in Independence Square. A large audience was in attendance. The exercises were of the most interesting de scription tnrougnout. ine proceedings were enlivened by some excellent music, which was performed at intervals by Hassler's band. The meeting was called to order by the Chair man of the Temperance Blessing, Mr. Charles Heritage, in the following remarks: Ladies and uentiemen: it becomes my auty on this occasion to appoint a chairman for this meeting, and I am glad that it is my privilege to select lor tnat purpose one wno nas ever been a friend of the temperance cause I refer to the Hon. Robert Foust, Past Most Worthy Patriarch of tbe eons ot lempcrance, wno will now take the chair. Upon the conclusion of the prayer the Decla- tlon of Independence was read by Colonel Maurice, who closed amid loud applause. The Chairman then introduced tne Rev. 11. . Cleveland, who made the following remarks: If we should take a moral census, we should be obliged to make a new classification of free men and slaves. Men who boast of freedom are frequently pressed down with a burden worthy ot the veriest slave. They aie subjected to tne cruellest ot masters, wno, aitnougn they do not inflict blows, yet inflict sad wounds and bind most fatal chains on both body and soul. Of all forms of slavery that curt our race in temperance is tne cruellest and most degrading. It increases poverty, crime, and misery, and crowds almshouses and jails. But poverty and suffering are also found in the ranks of temper ance and virtue. The great evil, then, is an inward evil, which blights genius, dethroned reason, and obliterates the beautiful image of God. It brutalizes men, violates the divinest sanctities, and invades the domains of conscience. Let a nation be ireea merely by strikln? olt its fetters and defeating its foes, and nothing else done, it amounts to but little, and so with tne victim oi intemperance, lie wants culture. development, sympathy, self-balance, determi nation, personal power to resist and endure, divine nelp ana an tne inspirations ot religion. uo to tne victims ot vice ana tell them ot their degradation, and of the dignity of their redeemed state in the sight of God ; of the sub lime possibilities of the future. bir with possi ble glory, and you reach the ear of the lowest sunken. I am not unmindful of the energy of the human appetite, but I have confidence in possible virtues ana numanity, and also in God, wnose cnuaren we are. There is, however, muh to encourage us to go forward in this work with faith and determi nation. We nave allies in tne intense longing of human nature, in the sorrows of the human heart, and in the spirit of an all-good God. Let us not faint tr grow weary, but learn to labor ana to nope, our cause shau triumph! It must triumpn: l ne gratituae ot wiaows ana orphans. and the approval of conscienee. and the smiles ot Heaven snail be our present ana everlasting rewara. Mr. Cleveland was succeeded by Professor Adams, who recited an original and lengthy poem by Mr. John lllckcy. The report of the Temperance Blessing was then read by Father Heritage, the founder of the organization. From the report it appears that the number of those who nave signed the pledge book is 1400. The Blessing has also distributed 70.000 tracts, iUQ VAJIVUDCO DIUUV JilQl 1CUU1U tfittltU O, lOlV, have been about $325. The donations during tne same time nave been tfiua-TU.

Addresses were subsequently made by Rev, Mr. Snyder, of Camden, and Mr. William J Mullen, the Prison Agent, at the conclusion of which the large assembly dispersed. MIXOEITY EEr RESENT ATIOX. The Republicans Take the Initiative Meeting Yesterday at tbe fxlrard Xlouae Important Resolution. A number of the prominent Republicans from this city and other parts of the State assembled yesterday afternoon in one of the parlors of the uirara House, tne ooieci oeing to elicit an inter change ot sentiment in regard to tne subject of cumulative voting, or wiiat is better known as minority representation. George M. Coreon, Esq., of Norristown, was called upon to preside, ana benjamin L. Berry, oi ilis city, ana uenerai v imam Liiiy, ot car Don county, were selected as secretaries. Mr. Corson, on taking the chair, said that the objects of tne meeting have been misconstrued A paper published in the western part of the State, together with quite a large number of citizens, have expressed the opinion that the present meeting Las been called in the interest ot suaon Lameroa. lhls tne speaker denied, They were there, not for the interest or the detriment of any Benator, but simply for con sultation as to the best means for putting down what they considered oppression. They were there to accoiupiisn a reform in representation to start a movement by which the Republicans in Democratic districts, and Democrats lu Re publican district, may have a share in the representation to which in justice and in right they are entitled. The meeting had in view a higher aim than mere pnrtv internet: they sought in aoeorcp'ltb a relorm uiucii needed, and which one day will prevail in all its complete details, as indeed it does now to a very slight extent, as in the case of the jury commission in each county. In these cases two candidates are in the field, but the voter is only entitled to rote for one of them, in conseqence of which a Democrat and a Republican are always selected for these posi tions. The speaker claimed that all the Repub licans wished was a fair representation. If in a certain district there be mooo Demo crats and 10,000 Republicans, and three represen tatives are to be chosen, the speaker wanted it arranged that the Democrats should have two representatives and the Republicans one. This division is fair and just, and the minority are as much entitled to a proportional representation as are the majority to a representation in pro portion to their strength. According to the present ruie tne iu.wu nepuoiicans auuaea to in the cat e above have in fact no rights. W. H. Alney, of Allentown, heartily endorsed the sentiments uttered by the preceding pcaker. He understood that the Republican State Committee will convene in this city on the 3th of the present month, and he laougut the best plan would be to recommend to that conl- i mittce to call a State Convention, to be com posed of delegates from the minority counties of the State, at which convention the matter could be fully discussed and acted upon. Mr. Ainey said the subject is exciting the liveliest Interest oi ail itepuuncans living in districts under Democratic control. He had in his pos session numbers of letters from prominent Ro- publicans irom an sections ot tne state strongly cndorsing the movement. George Lear, tsq., ot liucks county, was in favor of a Constitutional Convention. He was of opinion that tbe invitation should be extended to all counties. If the convention is only com- EOEed of minority Republican counties they will ave very little influence, as they are repre sented in the Legislature by Democrats. A State Convention should be called, and this matter put before the people as a great reform. J be speaker alluded to tne manner in which Republicans coming from largely Democratic districts are treated in the conventions of the party. They are treated with arrogance, and sneered at as being of very little account, by the delegates from strong Republican sections. They are thought to be 01 no power, but the speaker argued they were of as much power in all important elections as their more sucessful coworkers in the same cause. They keep down the Democratic majorities, and are always to be depended upon. in tne cquntics ot ijucks. Lenigh, and Mont gomery the Republicans can always calculate to a certainty what the Democratic majority will be, while in the largely Republican counties, as Allegheny for example, by dissensions in the ranks, the Republican majority can never be foretold. At the last election there was a falling off of three thousand in the majority in the county juct named. Daniel II. Mulvaney, Esq.. of Montgomery county, thought it better to adhere to minority counties. The time has not yet arrived to make an appeal to the majority. The latter would not listen to them. They are arrogant oy success. They would strongly oppose, for the success of the scheme contemplated would be the curtail ing of the power of the majority. Mr. Mulvaney believed that a convention of this kind would result in the inauguration of a corresponding one by the Democrats. General winiam Liny, ot carbon, m a tew re marks, argued in favor of a convention from both the majority ana minority counties, ne insisted that if the movement was only per formed by the minority, the action of the latter would be ignored by the majority, who would treat the whole affair as a secession from the party. Mr. Corson remarked that a change could be made in the party rules if the minority counties would combine. They have the greatest num ber of counties, hence the greatest number of delegates, and by this means a change might be made in the Republican rules. Jacob Gumppert, Jtsq.. spoke m lavor oi tne principle of minority representation. He com plained ot tbe manner in wnicn tne patronage s distributed, and thought a radical change is I Imperatively needed. A motion by Mr. Arney, onerea at tne com mencement of the cauens and subsequently amended, was here put and carried unani mously, ine loiiowing is tne motion: Jierolced, That the Republican State Com mittee from minority counties, called to meet in this ciy on the 13th inst., is recommended to call a State Convention, to be composed of dele gates from minority counties and districts, with a view to procuring legislation favorable to minority representation, and that it invite all majority counties and districts favorable to the same to send delegates. The meeting then adjourned. BASE BALL. A T II L E T 1 CVS. M U T U A L. Thefflaoch Yesterday Afternoon An Immense Concourse of People Witness the liaiue The Athletic Victorious core,ti l-13.- About six thousand people gathered on the Athletic grounds to witness the first of the series for the championship between the Athe letic, of this city, and the Mutual, of New York. In addition to this crowd, each of whom had willingly paid fifty cents for admission, the housetops and trees in the vicinity ot the enclo sure were, to our mind, uncomfortably packed. Some of tne residents, anticipating that old Sol would send forth such heat as had been felt during the past lew weeks, had canvas stretched across the roof from chimney to chimney, under which, although the atmosphere was delight fully cool, quite large numbers of spectators were seated. About two hundred seats on the ground had been reserved for the New Orleans visitiDg firemen. They made their appearance just a few moments before the game commenced, and as they marched to their places the crowd applauded. The Mutual having arrived and Theodore Bomelsler having been selected umpire, the game started with the Mutual at the bat, the Athletic having won the toss. A poor throw by Pratt gave the Yorkers two runs, Hatfield and Nelson coming In on the throw. Notwithstand ing that three men of the Athletic had reached their bases, not a run was made Malone at tempting to run in on the pitcher with Mills playing the catcher's position close. Thus the game started with the Mutual in the lead, but they lost it in the next inning, and'never after w ard recovered it, although they kept uncom fortably close throughout the game. They had expected a victory and had boabted that they were going to put on Martin, the famous slow pitcher, who bad not been hit at all lively this season. Everbody was on the qui cioe to see Martin deliver bis first ball, and when a few had been sent over the plate it was acknowledged that he would be a little troublesome. The Athletic were retired in the first Inning for no runs, but in the second they got the hang of the "twisters" and hit them for six runs, Stnsenderfer coming all the way home on a beauty between centre and left fields. Two fouls and a fly retired the Athletic for nothing again on tbe third Inning, but they again ham mered the "twisters" lively for a time on the fourth inning, and secured three additional runs. Reach scoring a "homer." But it was good to see Martin in the fifth inning, when the Athletics got a beautltul range of his pitching and knocked the balls to all corners of the field for nine runs, three of which were home runs one by Reach, one by Malone, and one by Sen senderfer. He was perfectly crestfallen at the fact that tbe Athletic should be able to hit him for eighteen bases in one inning. In the subse quent part of tbe game he occupied a position in the right field, and Walters, the regular pitcher, went in. i 1 C . I 1 ... 1... iile proveu iar uiure enecuve, as lue .nuiuuo obtained but ti runs after tbe fifth inning, up to wbkb time 18 runs had been accorded them. Tl" fielding of tl tble'c. wtV-h wus I rill'mnt I at yujeo, allowed the Mutual to make 11 moie runs than they deserved rratt being the means of giving them 5, Reach 2, Fisler 3, and Malone 1. Pratt in the first four innings threw badly, but after that he got settled, and assisted in retiring five players on the bases- sensenderfer made two splendid fly catches, n one instance turning a backward somersault with the ball in his hands. McBride pitched much more swiftly than in either the Cincinnati or Union matches, and while fifteen runs were obtained, but four should have marked the Mutual's score. Tbe Mutual, with the exception of Nelson at third, played finely. Paltison did the best bat ting for them, although he is not credited with a run. The score was as follows: MITT A I.. l ATHLETIC. O.

A l.noe Store on (Jhefinut Street Robbed About $10,000 In i.ncca and Kll Ijloveo Moien. Yesterday morning, between 1 and 3 o'clock, the lace and kid glove store of George W. Voircl, No. 1203 Chesnut stret, was entered by thieves and robbed of goods valued at from $8000 to $10,000. An entrance had been eTocted by the operators climbing the fence in ; "arof the building and then prying open luc oack door, which was secured by an iron bar. Once in the store, they were safe from detection bv either tbe private watchman or the police, although there were two lights smning brightly in the place. Across tbe rear of the store there is a screen a few feet in height, used for the pur pose of displaying the goods. This ran to the vieinty of tbe counter. The thieves worked on their hands and knees to the counter, behind which all the valuable goods wera stored. Cur tains descended from the ceiling to the floor, and when behind these curtains the thieves were safe from view. The goods, consisting of 135 dozen of Jouvin's kid gloves, on each of which tbe name of Mr. Vogel was stamped, and handsome lace basques, collars, etc., were then removed to a wash-room adjacent, where they were packed up and carried off. The thieves evidently had filled their bags to their fullest capacity, as goods valued at soveral thousands of dollars were left behind. Chief Kelly has telegraphed the facts of the robbery to all Important cities in the Union, and the probability is that the goods will be all re covered. TUE PRESIDENTIAL FOURTH." Grant at Woodstock The Ceremonies, Krso. lutloni, etc. General liuiler Opposes Chinese Jfuilsrntlon. At 9"50 o'clock A. M., the train reached Putnam. where the purty were to leave tbe depot uud proceed to vv oousiocK, some iour nines uisiaui, m carriages which were held In waiting. The usual crowd and the usual reception greeted the arrival. The Presi dent and party left the cars and entered their car riages, when a procession which had been previously formed under the direction of mounted marshals, moved forward to the music of Gilmore's brass band and the 3d Regiment brass band, through the streets of the village, to give all an opportunity to see the President. The pace was then quickened, and the distance between Putnam and Woodstock was soon accomplished. The procession which formed at Putnam was headed by two posts of the Grand Army of the Re public, one from Putnam and one from Greenwich. After these earns the carriages containing the Pre sidential party and members of the press. The route to Woodstock lay through a country of silvery streams and foliage-clad hills, over a road adorned throughout the whole distance with banners and fes toons. The inhabitants not only or the vicinity, but of distant towns In Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, had turned out their hundreds, so that In this comparatively remote part of Connecti cut there was presented a scene of enthusiasm and patriotism worthy or the land which proclaims and maintains that all men are born equal. Groups of patriotic citizens were gathered here and there along the route, and cheer after cheer re sounded as the carriage containing the Prealdent passed by. General Grant rode the whole distance uncovered, and acknowledged the enthusiastic plaudits by bowiDg to the crowd. The mottoes, "Welcome Grant," "Grant and Colfax," "We have Peace," "Welcome to Old Woodstock," met the eye along the route. Every house was decorated and fes tooned. Arches extended across the roads at inter vals. At a handsome Catholic Church on the out skirts of the village of Putnam the congregation and school were formed In Hue by the roadside, the chil dren all dressed In white. All greeted the President with hearty cheers. The procession halted a minute, when a pretty child In white was borne forward and presetted the President a maguitlcent bouquet of flowers. This was tne only actual stoppage on the route, though from time to time the procession halted momentarily to acknowledge the enthusiastic plaudits which re sounded wnerever large groups were assembled, Arrived at Woodstock, the scene was an exceed. inclv animated one. Thousands or neonle had assembled, and vehicles of all descriptions stood by the wayside. The grounds were beautifully deco rated with bannners bearing the names or the lead ing generals of the I'ulou army, and of the States and Territories or the Union. The procession wound its way into the ground, and the dust stained Presidential party had a little time for rat and rtiresnment. suortiy alter l o clock the thou sands around the village gathered together in a large teat erected on a common. T he President and his party took their seats upon the nlatform. Senator liuckinghaui occupied the chair, on his right sat President Graut, on whose right sat the Rev. Mr. lleech, pastor ot the Congre gational Church of Woodstock. To the lert oi the ciiairuian sat me uaron cacaeazy, uenerai Gorioir, Governor Jewell, A. 11. Bowen, General 1'ieasonton. and General 11 aw ley. Behind the Kussian Minister siit ex-Governor Woodford and General Butler. Cheer upon cheer went upas the party took their places upon the platform. Stnator Buckingham briefly Introduced the Presi dent, who vias enthusiastically received. After music by the band, tbe Declaration of Independence was read. Then Senator Buckiugham, with brief prefacing remarks, introduced ex-Governor Wood ford, who gave an elaborate address. Mr. Cleveland read the following resolutions, which were adopted by the meeting: Tbe citizens or Windham county, assembled in Wookstock on the ninety-fourth anniversary or the nation's independence, make this renewed declara tion or their political sentiments : We believe "that all men are created equal, en dowed by their Creator with certain inalienable righu, among which are life, liberty, aud the pursuit of happiness; aud that to secure these rights gov. ernrutnts are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." We rejoice and give thanks for the i .tion's sal vation from the prolonged aud awful danger ol the great Rebellion : for the emancipation or lour mil lions of slaves: for their elevation to lull citizenship; for that crowning amendment or the national char ter, whereby the Declaration of Independence is made a living, unheal reality ; and for the prowiug rrirt oj Lari.,H'ir .. ?e'"t 't ..':;: ..; ;;i land. We heartily thank the President of the United States for coralDg to meet us here, and we hasten to assure him of our enthnslastlo appreciation of his great services as the gloriously successful leader or a million or the soldiers or liberty In the moft momentous war In history. Ready witn him to "fight it out on that line", when war Is needed, we doubly honor the great warrior who gives the nation the watchword, "Let ns have peace." Observing with cordial satisfaction the fidelity, economy, energy, pure patriotism, and statesmanship of his adminis tration, we express full confidence In his continued and triumphant success. The native county of Putnam and Lyon has bad the great honor to lay Its readv tribute or life and treasure upon the altars ot liberty from Bunker bill to the Appomattox. It Iirs never measured its share nor counted the coBt when the country's honor was in question. Remcmlerlng the sons who "gave their lives that the nation might live," we have anew dedicated ourselves to the work they so nobly car ried on. "That from these honored dead we take Increased devotion to the cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion," and "we here hiRhly resolve that the dead shall not have died In vain, and that the government or the people, by the peorle, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.'1 BKECHEB AND BUTLER. Mr. Henry Ward Becchcr and General Eutlcr then delivered addresses, which were listened to with great attention. In the course of his remarks, General Butler said : The light of experience now teaches, because an nnhomogeneous, an unnatural, an unproductive, because unexpending, system or labor and class or lalHirerg had been introduced among us, not by volunteer Immigration, but by rorced Importation, tending to raise up two classes ot society, the very rich and the very poor, the industrious and ttre idle who reed, without return, upon Industry; both In compatible with true republican Institutions. Would 'it not be wise, then, for our statesmen to examine with care, to foresee, as far as Heaven has permit ted men to pierce the future, what will be the effect, what the result, and where the end shall reach by the Importation, by contract or purchase, of laboring men from any land, and, more than all, from a semi-barbarous one ; men who are to be tasked laborers only for ever, and who are therefore not men but merchan dise ? Shall we wait until the system of contract labor has takea as deep root In our soil as that other system of servile labor had done before we foresee and check the evil ? We deal not now with the In dustrial and economic view of the question, but witn the far broader and grander one of Its high political aspects. Let as not by any means hinder or pro hibit the voluntary coming to this country of all men who choose to add their labor, their energies, and their industry in aid or our own. No one ever com plained or the negro who came here or his own free will. From his so coming arose neither wrong nor - danger to freedom or the perpetuity of free institutions; but the negro, brought here as a commercial speculation, wrought the so great difficulties from which the country has so sutrcred. The highest pursuit In thi9 country Is Intelligent labor. It is not reputable to be without regular and constant employment. Who so works with head or hands Is here the nobleman. The cun ning artisan Is the prince. All here are equal all are sovereigns. It la, therefore, the highest province or statesmanship, the loftiest duty or patriotism, the hope or freedom, and the promise or the regenera tion ot nations to take care that In America labor be neither degraded nor enthral.ed. GENERAL HAWI.EY IN REI'LT TO BCTLER. At the close of General Butler's remarks Senator Buckingham Introduced ex-Governor Hawley, who alluded to the speech of General Butler, and replied to some of the General's remarks touching the sub ject or Chinese immigration, saying, in conclusion, that he would not dare to lock the inviting gates of America against a suil'erlng world. The exercises closed witn tne singing or "America" by the entire audience, accompanied by Gilmore's band. At 9 o clock the presidential party left vvooastock in carriages for Putnam station, where they took the cars tor Norwich. THE DOMINICAN miSOSER. Arrival of Davlo Hutch In New YorU-Preal-flent laez'a Victim on Ills Way Home. Mr. Davis Hatch, a resident of South Nor walk. Connecticnt, left his home in 1802 for tho island of St. Domingo, to assume control of a salt mountain in the Ncba district, about fifteen miles from Barona and one hundred miles from St. Domingo city, and for the working of which a number of New York capitalists had obtained a grant from the Government of Spain. Mr. Hatch subsequently returned to tho United States, and again in 1S05 went to St. Domingo to resume operations at the salt mine. Yesterday he returned, after an absence of nearly five years, although only ex pecting, when ho went to the island the last time, to be absent two or three months. In the course, however, of the many revolutionary movements going on there under Cabral, Baez. and the triumvirate Pi mentel, Garcia, ana Luperon Mr. Hatch be came involved in certain official transactions with them, growing out of his assertion of the . rights of the corporation which ha represented, and ultimately fell under the ban of President Baez's displeasure, the result being that he was arrested, charged with inciting hostility to tho designs of the Government (which was Presi dent Baez), treason, etc., was finally tried, without any opportunity for a defense, and sen tenced to death. The sentence was subse quently commuted. Another phase of the tronbla has, however, been brought very prominently before the public lately in consequence of the investigation by the United States Senate into the question of a claim asserted by Mr. Hatch against the Baez Government. This inquiry has brought up the whole Dominican queation, Including the over tures made by our Government for the annexa tion of St. DomiBgo, and the result has been the "washing" some very dirty diplomatic linen, and in the course of the disclosures there are many hints and riddles about Mr. Hatch having been imprisoned by Baez because he opposed the scheme of annexation, and was influential in that opposition among tho Dominicans. Whether he was guilty or not of such an indiscre tion is really a matter of no importance in justi fication of the act of imprisonment, but tho main Erominent fact is that an American citizen has een treated with unusual fccverlty, imprisoned, tried, sentenced to death, without any cause to warrant such action, so far as has yet been shown, and that prominent government officials have been fully aware of the fact by written and verbal notifications, yet have winked at the outrage and, apparently, have been in collusion with tbo perpetrators. One thing in this con nection is certain, and that is, that if Mr. Hitch had been a British subject Baez would never have imprisoned him, or if he did, and refused to surrender him on demand, even without diplomatic formality, a British frigate would have made the temperature even more than tropical about Baez's domicile. Mr. Hatch was released by Baez, with his sen tence commuted to Immediate and perpetual banishment, and has since that time been de tained in St. 1 bo mas, endeavoring to effect a settlement of his business and private affairs in St. Domingo. This he was unable to do before leaving, as by the arrangement between Rear Admiral Poor, commanding the United States West India squadron, and Baez, Mr. Hatch was obliged to "make tracks" direct, in a "bee line," from his prison quarters to tho ship which bore him away. He was, in fact, unable even to procure his necessary wearing apparel. FROM BALTIMORE. The "Fourth" In tho Monumeuial City. Baltimore, July 5. The Fourth pased with unusual.quletness. Business was entirely sus pended and the day observed as a general holi day. Thousands went on steamer excursion and to tbe parks.
