IE If s VOL. XV. NO. 95. PHILADELPHIA, SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 1871. DOUBLE SHEET THREE CENTS. : ! K FIRST EDITION THE EXILED BISHOP OF HAVANA. Arrival in New York Acconnt of III Et pulsion Arrogance of the Cuban Voluu teers. The steamship Missouri arrived yesterday from Havana, with a larpe nnmber of passea- f;ers, anion; whom was Blbhop Martinez, of (avana, accompanied by bis secretary, Abbe Partu, who left this port a fortnight ago to take charge of his diocese. On the 13th instant he arrived at Havana, duly farni6hed with Episco pal authorities from the Cabinet at Madrid, bnt was refused permission to go ashore. Bishop Mnrtinez states that he was ordained Bit-hop of Havana in 1804, and was accused of favoring the insurrection because he desired to regard all his flock with equal solicitude. He was on intimate terms with Captain-General Dnlce, but was disliked by Lcreundi Dulco's sncceseor because he refused to have the church bells ruDg In any cities or villages which Lersnndi might enter, this being an honor only accorded to an archbishop or bishop. Bishop Martinez obeyed the summons to at tend the (Ecumenical Council, and at its close remained some time at Marseilles, whence he he came via Paris and Liverpool to Boston. On leading that he was en route to Havana, the Ppanish authorities there communicated with Madrid on the subject, and orders were, sent tbf m to take the votes of the voluuteer com manders as to whether he should be allowed to land. This was done, and seven out of ten voted against allowing him to enter Cuba. On arriving at Havana the Bishop was in formed by one of the Captain-General's aides-de-camp that if he would remain in Cuba he must go on hoard the frigate Saragossa, where he would be treated as a prisoner. He demanded this intimation in writing, when the aid with drew and did not return. The next visit he re ceived was from the chief the municipality, who was barely civil. The Bishop made the same request to him, and with the same result. He then addressed a formal protest to Captain General Valmaseda. Numbers of the clergy aLd laity came on board and sympathized with him. Finding that he could not land except as a prisoner, he returned in the Missouri to this city. Bishop Martinez says he will not return to Cuba by permission of the military who rule that island; and that he learned that placards were posted In Havana, wherein the volunteers declared they would walk over his body before they would allow him to enter the city. A quibble was raised on account of his passport not being countersigned In New York; but it was too palpably a pretext to deserve any con sideration.. Y. Tribune, to-day. INDIAN ATROCITIES. The Bloody A pitches The Condition of Attn I is lit Arizona. A correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce, writing from Tucson, Arizona Terri tory, March 20, says: I beg of you, for the sake of suffering huma nity, to allow me to make a few statements con cerning the deplorable situation la which the people of this unfortunate Territory find them selves at this time, owing to the inability of our Government to protect us from the Apache savages. Within the last three years we have bad not one day of peace, and for the last six months scarcely one hour has passed that some citizen has not been butchered bv the Apaches. We, of course, look to our Government for protec tion, but, instead of getting it, we have got nothing but promises until within the last six months, when our new commanding officer was sent out to take command of thU depart ment, with orders to make his headquarters somewhere lu the lerritory; but, for some cause, not known to any person but himself, he makes a flying trip through the Territory, re ports everything quiet, goes to San raoclsco. aud asks his superior to aliow him to establish his headquarters at Wilmington, Cat. At the same time that be is occupied ia doing this the Apaches have murdered more than twenty-five men and taken property to the amount of at least fifty thousand dollars. I have lived in this Territory ever since it belonged to the United States, and can safely say that at no time since 1840 have the Indians been so bad as at present Why our Government has very sparingly ad ministered to our wants in this lerritory we have always been at a loss to know. We pay our taxes, we try to earn an honest living. and why should we not expect to be treated as citizens of other Territories are? We demand it as our right to be protected from Iudians, and shall continue to do 6o. Our Territory is not the barren desert that a great many peop.e think it is; but, to the con trary, is one of the finest stock raising countries on the globe, and as for mineral wealth Arizona cannot be surpassed. We have within fifty miles of this town mines of gold, silver, and copper enough to employ five thousand miners profitably, if we had the Indians out of the way, Would any other government on the earth (that had the means) allow a few thousand miserable savages to murder its citizens without doing something to protect them ( It appears tbat our Government has come to the conclusion that if tbev send us a few sol diers and disbursing oltlcers and scatter a hand ful of dollars among us, we should bo perfectly satisfied. This is a mistake. We do not ask for money. W e ask for the Indians to be Utkeu out of the country, and we will find the money for the job, aud plenty of it too. If the Indians were driven hence, we would be satisfied to take our chances fur the rest. FIR IS AT NEWARK, DEL. Storehouse aud Post Office Eurued. About three o'clock yesterday morning a fire broke out in the storehouse occupied by John I). Richardson, at Newark, Del., which, not being discovered for a short time, soou enve loped the whole building, aud caused its entire destruction, as well as that of a duelling ad- joining, Both were frame structures, owned by John Miller, the postmaster of the town, who lived in one of them, and occupied a portion of the other as the post otUee, the greater part of It being leaded to Mr. Kichurdon as a store.
