The Dutcli expedition against the Acheencse on
the Island of Sumatra has excited a great deal of
interest In this country. Cable advices have
already informed the readers of the Herald that
the Dutch forces have sustained serious losses, and
retired from Acheenese territory to Padang, a
Dutch trading settlement on the west coast of
Sumatra. In the Menankabau country. Theto-n ister
of the Colonies ol the Dutch government inhumed
the Chamber of Deputies at the Hague, on the
Sfcid lnst., that their losses were seven officers and
thirty-eight men killed, and thirty-live officers and
383 men wounded. There are indications of a pro
longed and bloody war, which will probably lay
waste one of the fairest portions of the earth.
The Sultan of Acheen Is one of the boldest and
bravest sovereigns or the East, and this war will
probably be "a war to the knife." A Herald re
porter discovered yesterday a gentleman of this
city who knows the Sultan intimately, having been
his Chief Counsellor? iu:fact,
PRIME MINISTER OI' ACHEEN,
at a time when that State was mueh inorc power
ful than it is now. Captain Celso Cesare Moreno
was in the service ol the present Sultan from 1869
to 186A and already at that time Sultan Sirl had
determined to expel the Dutch from Sumatra, "if
it should take his last man and the lost drop in his
bod.v." Captain Moreno gave the reporter some
vuluable information in regard to the country, the
people, their manners and customs, the Sultan and
the commander of the Acheenese army and other
sub.ieots of interest.
Reporter?Will yon be kind enouprh, Captain, to
give me a description of Sumatra, as you saw it in
Captain Moreno?I think Sumatra, In the group
of the Malay Islauds, Is much more Important and
richer thau Cuba, in the Antilles. Holland has
three stations on the west coast; but the interior
Is dependent on native rajahs. The principal
rajah resides in Acheen, sin Saltan, Alaidin Sar
dar Manshoor Scander siiaa. The rajahs of Delhi
and Siak, in the eastern part of the island, are
tributary t? htm. The articles of export are pep
per, gold dust, copper ore, sulphur, camphor. In the
north; nutmegs, cloves and mace, In the Dutch
province of Bencoolen; and coral, benzoin, gutta
pcrcha and tin, In Palembang and Menankabau.
The vegetation in some parts of the country is per
fectly magnificent, and you might truly call It
THE GARDEN OF ASIA.
Nutmeg trees, mangosteen, cocoa, pepper, cloves,
durian?In all my travels over Asia I have never
encountered such splendid panoramas of trees.
From what I have seen I am also flrmly convinced
?f the existence of gold aud other mines in
Reporter?Could you describe Acheen and the
Captain Moreno?Well, Acheen Is a fortified
town near the northwestern extremity of Sumatra,
on the River Acheen, near the sea. It was built
l>v Turkish officers, who were sent there by Saltan
Makmoud, ?f Turkey. The State, after which the
capital is named, has a population of from three
hundred and fifty to four hundred thousand In
habitants. Of course the Saltan has no regular
army. The soldiers of Acheen are mostly Sldibays,
from the coast of the Red Sea, especially from Aden.
They probably do not number one thousand men.
They are generally nsed as a body-guard of the
Huitan, and are all armed with muskets. In times
of war they are tho recruiting officers for the na
tives, the Malays.
Reportbr?Has the Snltan funds sufficient to
carry on a prolonged war*
Moreno?He Is a man or immense wealth, nis
ancestors had, centuries ago, a large trade with the
Houthern coast of India and leit him a magnificent
fortune. The form of government is absolute and
Inexpensive, and his riches have accumulated from
year to year until lie has become
ONE OP TI1E WEALTHIEST SULTANS
of the East.
Reporter?What Is the mode of warfare of the
Moreno?They always take advantage of the
marshy condition of the soil and of the impene
trable forests, which conceal their operations from
the enemy. They carry on a sort of guerilla war.
Every man in the country Is armeo with a kreest,
or knife, with a serpentine blade, the handle made
of gold and mounted with preclons stones, a sword
and a peculiar kind of gun loaded with grape shot.
Reporter?Will the Dutch troops not suffer from
the climate ?
Captain Moreno?Yes, the sun will undoubtedly
be the greatest, the most dangereus enemy of the
Dntch troops. There will be vast swamps to cross
before they can reach Acheen. The Aclioenese ar?
a tine race ef men?bold and brave. They all be
lieve that each was born with his destiny, and this
consciousness makes them braver still. And then
they will be aided by the sickness In the ranks of
Reporter?What sort of & man is the Rajah Siri,
the Sultan of Acheen ?
Captain Moreno?He Is a man of fifty-three years,
?bout five feet six inches tall, very white for a
Malay?he has Arabic'blood in his veins?with an
Jntelllgent face, a prominent nose for a man be
longing to a nation ef flat-noses, and wears, of
A RINO TN HI3 NOSE
m well an in his ears. These rings sparkle with
precious rnbtes. Around the neck he wears a gor
geous necklace. He believes in polygamy, of
coarse, and has several hundred wives (Jocosely?
1 never counted them, for I think it would be
rather difficult to count them). He has frequently
conversed witb me about his lofty position among
the princes of the East. He thinks he is the great
est sovereign of the world. The (jueen of England
ud the Emperer of Germany, he thinks, are
nothing as compared to him. He says his
country la the tomb of Adam and Eve, and that he
was enjoined by the prophet Mohammed to be the
jpiardian of this tomb. He has two sons; the
older, Toncoo Abdraman, Is a very intelligent young
man for a Malay, very brave and the most bitter
enemy of the Dutch, but the younger, Toncoo Ab
dallah. la a regular lazy Malay in the worst sense
of the ward.
Rrporteb?Who are the chief commanders of the
Captain Mobzno?When I was there they were
Mahomet All, of Muscat; Selke Abdallah, of Aden;
Selke All, of Madras, Malabar; Sharvardar Suttan,
of Karical; Setke Abou Baker, of Delhi, India;
Fatan Mlteen, of Lucknow. All these had held com
missions ia the British service in India as Zubah
?tars, the highest rank to which a native can
aspire in the British service. They have large
CANNON OP (MEAT SI7.B
and pure metal.
Reporter?What are the principal articles of the
trade of Acheen ?
Captain Moreno?Spice9 and tin. They arc
shipped from the west ceast of Sumatra te Penang,
a British settlement in the strait or Malacca. The
trade Is carried on by small schooners, manned by
Chinese and Malays. They bring from Penang a
?ort of capra, which is the only garment the
Acheenese wear, except a Bert ci kerchlel they
wear over the head.

Reporter?Do yon think the Dutch will conquer
Captain Moreno?1 thlak lt'a very doubtful. The
obstacle** which the Dutch troops will have to Bur
liiount are enormous. There arc impenetrable
Jnnples and swamps that arc alive with alligators,
and at high tide the water In those district* near
the seashore la ten feet high. But, hiph tide or no
high tide, you always wade there kneedeep in
mud. Then the Dutch will alao sutler from dysen
PROM TERRIBLE SUNSTROKES,
not much from fever.
Reporter?What is the numerical strength of the
Dutch troops V
Captain Moreno?Oh, probably not over 4,000 or
5,000 men. If they get natives they might bring
their number up to 10,000. 1 do not think that
they can hold Acheen. Tney may take it, but 1
don't think they can Hold it; and, besides, it would
not pay them to hold it. The great difficulty is that
the Dutch cannot bring their guuboats to Achecn,
and you cannot successfully fight one of those na
tions without gnnboata. This Saltan sir! has the
moral support, the sympathies, of the whole Mo
hammedan race. Then there la another important
point. From March til! October the Dutch will not
be able to operate on the west coast ou account
of the terrific monsoons of the Southwest.
kkporteu?The Sultan, of course, docs not believe
that he can be vanquished.
Captain Moreno?Oh, no; he thinks he is invinci
ble. He determined to expel the Dutch as early
as 1859, when many of the chiela of the Mussulman
faHh left East India after the war of the rebellion
AS POLITICAL REFUOEES TO ACHEEN,
which was regarded as a kind of politi
cal Mecca. I, coming from the Indian rebel
lion in 1859, was received with great con
sideration, and the Sultan entrusted me
with a mission to the Italian government. I
was to propose to the Italian government that it
should take possession of the districts between
Achecn and the Dutch boundaries?where the prin
cipal pepper plantations are?and use its influence
to prevent the Dutch from encroaching any further
on the Achcenese possessions. As the Sultan and
his counsellors all knew that the Dutch intended to
conquer the whole islaad, this plan seemed to be
the best that could be adopted. The Sultan showed
me at that time Important letters from various Eu
ropean governments, among them one of Louts
Pliilippe and one of Napoleon 111., in which hoth
sovereigns positively declined to give him any aid.
Reporter?1 believe you have already stated that
Acheen is a fortified city?
Captain Moreno?Yes, sir. Tho walls, which arc
three yards deep, and the rampart, which is about
five yards deep, were constructed during the reign
of Sultan Makraoud of Turkey, who sent officers
to Acheen who did this work. The guns that are
planted on the walls are large, bnt thev
ARE NOW IN A DEPLORABLE CONDITION.
Acheen, you know, is on the left bank of the Achcen
River, which runs from southeast to northwest,
and flows into the sea at a point about twenty
miles below the capital. Just In front of Pulo Way.
Reporter?Is the river navigable ?
Captain Moreno?Only by small Malays boats.
The source of the Acheen River is at the foot of the
Itam Gebel (Black Mountain), fifteen miles south
east of Acheen city. I may add, in regard to the
kingdom of Acheen, that is the strongest and
largest in the Island of Sumatra. All the Rajahs
of the Malays race residing in the neighboring
islands, as well as those on the peninsula
of Malacca, entertain this opinion. Prior
to the English and Dutch conquests of
Palumban, Bancolcem, Padarig and Polo Nias the
kingdom of Acheen extended from live degrees
north to five degrees south, from Pulo Way in the
northwest, to the Straights of Sounda, in the
southeast. In the east it. extended to theseacoast,
toward the straits of Malacca and to the kingdom
of the Dellii Malays. In the interior it extended to
the Orang-Orang Battax, inhabitants of the moun
professing THE buddhist FAITH.
They are the descendants of a Burmese tribe, who
came from the Malay Peninsula when the King of
Siam and the Emperor of Burmah were at war.
Reporter?This tribe settled in the interior of
Captain Moreno?Yes, sir, and ever since there
has been a perpetual religious war between the
Malays, who profess Islamlsni, and this new tribe,
who profess Buddhism. They never held any
friendly Intercourse. The Burmese are peaceful
enough, but the Malays are too belligerent. The
Inhabitants of Acheen are, like all those na
tions, bitter enemies of all who do not profess
Reporter?How is the government administered t
Captain Moreno?The State is divided into six
provinces?Acheen, Barret, Analaboo, Pedir, Potoo,
Samalanka. Each capital is on the bank of a
little river. Each province is governed by a Rajah,
bnt all of them recognize the Sultan of Acheen as
their supreme ruler.
Reporter?Could you describe the palace of the
Captain Moreno?'The palace Ragnaa Roomah,
where the Saltan resides, is built of bamboo. It is
two stories high, and contains about ten largo
rooms. The floors are
COVERED WITH CLEAN AND HAND90KE MATS,
made by the natives themselves of wild "vegeta
ble" silk. The roof Is covered with straw from the
rice. Around the large palace are twenly-flve
smaller palaces, which are occupied by his wives,
his sons and the members of the government. The
Sultan lias frequently told me his palace was the
most magnificent thing of the kind in the world.
He asked me once if any King had a palace that was
as handsome as his. I told him readily that his
(the Sultan's) palace would be used by any of my
countrymen fer the chickens to roost In.
Reporter?Is the Sultan the chief of the Church
as well as of the State ?
Captain Moreno?Yes, sir. His Ministry Is com
posed of a Vlslr, Mohamet Shaa Toncoo of Marras.
Under him are three miaisters, Sheik Abdullah
Toncoo of Compound Java, Sultan Shaa Shawan
dar of Acheen, and Ackmet Shaa Laby Toncoo of
Pedlr. By the way, in regard to the Acheenese
army, I may add that the Sidibnys are brave and
good soldiers. An order given to them by a Mus
THST tool t'POW AS SACRED, *
Jnst as though the Prophet Mohammed him
self had given it. They will serve as a
nucleus for the Acheenese army which will have to
be organized. The nussber of the Sidibnys while
I was there was about four hundred. In case of
necessity the Sultan co?ld organize an army of
10,000 men, mors^ir less well armed with old-fash
ioned muskets of a peculiar shape. The blades of
their swords which tbey use In war are poisoned.
The Malays are terrible enemies when they run
a-muck. The Dutch have had some terrible expe
riences with them.

The Killing of David Barry by David
On Ihe 17th of April, last year, as will be remembered,
David Murphy shot and killed David Barry at the liquor
saloon of Patrick Ryan, corner of Sixtieth street and Sec
ond avenue; or rather the shooting took pluce in Iront of
the saloon, the difficulty irom which the shooting oc
curred having originated in the saloon, lie was tried In

case, and the result has been that the convicted mur
derer lias thus lar been saved irom expiating Ids crime
on the gallows.
The case came up for argument In this Court yesterday
and was argued at great length by Mr Howe Alter
showing that the statute obliged the Court to sit in review
ol the facts, and ii the verdict ol the jurv was not such as
the Court should render, a new trial should i>c ordered,

In respect to the tearful extent of crime in the city, and
thai tin- difficulty ol punishing offenders was attributable
to jurors, ami his admonition to the jury that
they had sworn that they had no conscientious
scruples about finding u verdict ol guilty
where death was the penalty were calculated
to prejudice the prisoner ami to operate to procure uii
Unfavorable verdict. He further contended that the ver
diet was clearly against the weight of the evidence. A
very strong point and one most eloquently urged, was
that the difficulty oecurrad through Murphy seeking to
prevent his brother from dr liking. The summary of his
argument was thai if this was not a case ot scll-tlcleiica it
certainly was no more than manslaughter in the third
