Madrid, May 13.
A letter published to-day gives
the text of a letter written by Gen.
Burrell to Dcauxmonde, explaining
the Santiago i.u.assaere. He denies
that the court martial was estab
lished on board the steamer Tor
nado to try prisoners, and says there
were one hundred, and tlfty pris
oners, the niost Qf whoi
were regularly tried, h-- - ....
tribupan finu-- of J g.
were tried by a marine tribunal on
board the Francisco de Borga in
regular form. Thirty-seven were
sentenced to death; twelve to im
prisonment, and three were lib
erated. This ho can prove by official
documents; also that the Virginius
was clearly proved a pirate legally
captured, and unduly carrying the
American Hag. Of the remaining
prisoners sixteen were sentenced to
death and executed while, 87 re
mained at the Captain General's
disposal. On the 8th of November
he sent the war steamer Bazaine to
the Captain General in order that
he mieht. if he wished, commute
the death penalties of those not ex
ecuted, as orders to stop the execu
tions had been received from
He then relates the surrender of
102 survivors. The special circum
stances of the case prevented him
conceding to the protests of the Bri
tili nnd American consuls. The
laws and orders under which he
acted were absolute and peremptory
authority proper. The executions
justifies everything ho did on legal
grounds. He denies yielding to
preserve the volunteer; he asserts
that only the mob in the United
States were indignant at the execu
The financial and commercially
interested men, lawyers, well in
formed military men, and the sen
sible portion of the press, are op
posed to the war on the Virginnius
question, and recognize Spain's
right to do what she has done. He
trusts that the time to clear the
whole matter honorably to Spain, is
near at hand.
