The Jtinttssjicre'of the Crew or
THE SICKENING DICTA I L3 BY AN EYE
WIINESS. Capt, Pryor, ot the brig Azalla, which
arrived at her dock in New York har
bor, n few dnys ago, from Santiago de
Cuba, states that ho was the only Ame
rican who witnessed the massicro of
the 37 passengers and crew of the Vlr
gtnlus, Including Capt. Fry, 011 tho
nfternoon of November Glh, and that
the accounts previously publisher! were
more or less Incorrect. He says :
I brought Hie Azalla toaiichor ln San
tiago de Cuba harbor, outside of the
fort, on the morning of November fi, and
sent for permission from the ntltlioilties
to moor the brig alongside tlio quay. or
wharf, which runs out some distance
into the harbor. There is only one
wharf, and nil vessels receive and tils
charge their enrgoes on It. The head
of the whaif is lelt clear for landing.
I had been so busy getting tho brig
abreast of the the wharf that I ill. I not
notice anything unuscal lu tho town or
harbor But after the brig had been
secured, I saw the Vlrginlulying under
the guns of the tort, and the men-of-war
and gunboats were anchored in a semi
circle about her. I was then told by
the masters of the other ves-els which
lay nt the wlinrf that three, men fiom
tl'o Vlrglnlus Gens, It) nil, Del ol and
Varolii! hail been taken fthme and
shot early that morning. The Virginlus
was towed Into the harbor lute the pie
viiius eveliirg.nnd these three men weto
si lot without the slightest form of a trial
or investigation of nny kind.
About noon boats lrom tho T01 undo
landed several officers tpi the wharf.
They returned soon afterwaid accom
panied liy the oithoililes of the town,
who had bo'n asked to us-lst in trying
the passengeis and ctew of the Virgln
ius, Tlie excitement increased in the
lon, mid nt about' four o'clock ileal ly
the' entire populace gatheied in I ho
neighborhood of the wliaif.
ll.iats were put off from Ihe Tornado,
nnd tho entile crew nnd passengeis
taken on the Virginlus were landed on
the whaif, where a strong e'ort of
cavalry and Infan'ry had been drawn
up In optii order. The prisoners were
marched together in funis.
As soon as they wele landed the body
matched up the wharf to the prison,
wiii-'h is on tlie right side ot the road,
