The Bose-hush of 1569
Correspondences on the Alabama Thmaty.
[Bathe Atlantic Cable.]
LONDON, June 2„1869.—The correspondence
that has passed between the two governments
' •of Great Britain and the United States on the
Alabama claims treaty has been published.
.The first despatch is from Lord Statiley to Mr.
Thornton, the British Minister at' , Wash
ington under, date of February 16, 1868, by
which 'that envoy was informed that. Mr.
Adams had Communicated portions of a. de
spatch from Secretary Seward, °optimising a
wish for the speedy settlement °fall difforances
arising from the Alabama claims, the San - Juan
aflair, the naturalization question and the Ca
nadian fisheries. Secretary Sevrard, therein
suggested that the true Method would be to
treat jointly - through the medium of an inter
national conference, and the first step taken
the negotiations should be on that basis.. Sub
sequently Mr. Adams communicated a de•
spatch to Lord Stanley froni Secretary -Sew
ard, to the effect that the naturalization quea•
lion caused great uneasinesis in Anierica,
and was the . most important - point then
pending, and until that • were settled it
would be hopeless to attempt the remova
of any ofthe other differences.. It further ad
snits that' no delay can be conipatible'with the
maintenance of the good understanding be
tween the two countries. Lord Stanley was
also informed that Secretary Seward. reserved
his opinien of the Manner of proceeding to be
adopted In respect` to the Alabama clainia,,as
any deeislOn in that regard would "have much
ini)ueuce on the proceedings in the naturaliza
tion question.
.I.p due time protocols were
signed on the subject of, the naturalization
treaty and the San Jtian question.
Oti()ctober 21 Lord Stanlerwrites that Mr.
Reverdy Johnson called upon-him the day be
fore, and that much conversation passed be
tween them, in the conrse Of which Mr. John
son again made a proposal, on behalf of Mr.
Seward, that the matter be referred to a com
mission formed of an equal number of British
and Americans, with power to call upon an
umpire in case of disagreement, , -whose
decision should be final. Lord Stan
ley further writes that in this con
versation little was said about the point on
which the former negotiations brokeoff,
namely, the claims that the Americans would'
raise before the arbiter; and the question of
the alleged premature recognition by her
3lajesty's government of the state of bellige
rency, of the Confederates.. He moreover
stated to Mr. Johnson that this point could not
be taken up, and thereby cause the govern
ment to depart from the . position already
taken, but that lie saw no difficulty in S.
framing the reference that by mutual consent
either a tacit or express ditliculty might. be
avoided. The negotiations thereafter pro
ceeded rapidly on the basis of this agreement,
by which botfi nations were to be blended for
the purpose of making tltings run smoothly:
On November 10th a cofivention was drawn
up for the settlement of all outstanding claims,
which was signed on December Bth. Lord
Stanley further writes Mr. Thornton that sub'
sequent to the signature of the convention he
was informed by Mr. Johnson that Mr.
Seward had stated in his despatch that
if Washington were' appointed as the
place 'of meeting all would be, right.h
being This point, therefore, conceded by her
Majesty's government, he liad every reason to
suppose that the convention, in the other re
spects, was accepted by the Cabinet at Wash
ington, with a fair hope that it - ultimately
would receive the sanction of the Senate. On
- 111 -WT. Thornton writes that Mr. i4eward.
had informed mai Luau tee ruutenrs ...-
Convention were not in accordance with the
instructions given to Mr. Johnson. The Bresi
d eta and his colleagues could not approve of cer
tain stipulations, which, in the present form,
would not receive the sanction of the Senate.
Mr. Thornton also writes that Mr. Seward
proceeded to assure him that his government
earnestly desired that this good work should
be brought to a satisfactory conclusion, and
not fail in the last moment. He consequently
--at-knowledged-that-his-Lordship was-justified
in declining to reopen the negotiations, but
hoped that in consideration. of the importance
of the subject he would not do so, but consent
to sonic moditication that would render the
Convention acceptable to the Senate.
On the English Ministry being changed
Lord Clarendon wrote, under date of Decem
ber 24, that the British Government was pre
pared to mee4he wishes of the government of
the United States, and sent the draft of a
vention, by which the negotiations were to be
completed on the 14th of. January, 1869. The
second convention:drawn up by Lord Claren
don, which was lately rejected by the Senat3,
was, in fact, a proposal to cheat the public by
deceptive clauses in regard to the recognition
of the belligerency, and excited indignant
comment here with all fair-minded-men, and
appears to have fully justified the action ot the
Serrano's Lieutenant who is to Replace
the Dying Dulee--The Monster of Xeres
--A lk;nrely Military man to Hold the
Reins or GOvernment.
The name of the new Captain-General of
Cuba is Caballero de Pudas. He is about 47
years of age, and was, previous to the revolu
tion of last fall, a man of but little note in
Spain. Then he held the position in the, regu
lar army of Mariseal del Campo, which corre
sponds to our rank of Major-Genefid; but as
there is au immense number of „officers in the
Spanish army, many of whom have seen but
little service, the tact that lie held such a
position indicates nothing .as to his capacity.
He was always esteemed a brave man and of
rather a (Win , " disposition. When the revo
lution broke out he repaired , at once to the
standard of Captain-General Serrano, under
whose eyes he performed prodigies 'of valor'at
the great battle of Puente de Akolea. There.
he was second in command, and to his conduct
the pronouncing party owed very .ninth for
the brilliant result which crowned his arms.
Isabella 11. was dethroned, and De Rodas was
immediately prOinoted to a Lieutenant-Gen
When the Republicans a 'feW - Months ago
raised the disturbances in Xeres, Cadiz and
Malaga, De liodas wits despatched as the right
hand man of Gen. Serrano to suppress them:
He did this, but in an exceedingly brutalmam
ner. Cadiz was bilinharded ior, three days,
and Malaga for a Whole week, which caused
the loss of a great munber oflives, while thon
isands were wounded.. His action at Xeres was
likewise bloodthirsty, and upon the whole
;all - -Europe was struCk. With horror at his con
duct. It must be borne in with,
that the men
killed mid wounded in these places Materially
Sertane, llC.Hadas and: the , uther chiefs
during the revolution; and when: it is added ,
that the bloodshed, or at any rate'. the greater
part of it, could-have 'been and would .have
been avoided by a prudent General .and good
man, the. impression.naturally.kft. must be
that the new Governor-General is a bold,
bloody, bad Man.

Opening of the Examination Exercises
WEST PoixT, June 2.—The regular annual
examination of the Cadets of the United
States Military Academy„ began this morning,
at 9 o'clock. It will be many days before the
examination of the Graduating Class is fin
ished, and during that time the other classes
will have ample opportunity to brush up their
studies, and prepare for the dread
ordeal of meeting the Board. From* 9
o'clock until 3 theyirAClass were before t e
Board in the Library, and were examined o
the subject of Military Engineering, includin
`•\ 11
the construction of works of, defence, pla
of celebrated campaigns,str4tegic movements,
Ste. Among the plans described and discussed
were those of 1814, the battle of Gettysburg
and the assault on Fort Wagner. This sub
sect, one of the most important in the West
' oint curriculum s as it embraces in fact the
whole science of war, will hardly be ex
hausted before to-morrow afternoon, when
the class will be tested in the knowledge of
Ethics and Law.
The hotels are both crowded, but there haS
been no sauntering about the beautifulgrounds
Of the Academy since . 'early morning, on ac
count of the Incessant rain. As I write, it is
coming down with a heavy pour, as if 'all the
celestial water-carts had been opened at once,
and there were no end to the supply of water.
;Very few distinguished visitors hive yet
arrived,.. Beside the Board, who are all here,
the only notables on the ground :since Monday
were Generals 3forell and Butterfield, both of
whom have left.
It may* interesting to you to kno'v that in
the class
,about to graduate, 59 in number,
there are 2:soldiers, all of whom have seen

—The Kellogg concert at the' APiideray of MUSIC last
night Pl`lo3 but. partially successful.. The principal at
tractions upon the programme were the selections from
Rossini's famous posthumous Mem Solennelle, a corn
pisition which has never yet been sung In this city. Tha
EICICCtIODS were three, in number, and if we are to accept
the testimony of foreign critics they comprised ahout
the most uninteresting portions of the great musician's
masterpiece. The Cruciftrus; a soprano' solo of much,
tender beauty and feeling, was hung by Miss Kellogg
correctly, and even elegantly, bill with that eold, unsym
pathetic manner which will ever stand between this fair
artist and the great reputation to Which she aspires. It
would be impossible to find" any fault with her execu
tion, but she sang with so little 'fooling that
all . the delicate aroma of the music was
lost, and we had nothing • but • a brilliant
mechanical effort. Signor Boetti gave the Domine
Deus, a very ambitions but beautiful tenor solo, in ''a
manner which can best be described by the' cornflour
cial phrase "fair to middling,' The dißlcult music must
be well sung to be effective, and Boatl exerted himself
to give it faithfully. The fact that ho made a cone Nora:,
ble effort was very plain, and this marred the perform
ance somewhat. Boetti has energy and warmth, but Iris
style is hard, and ho dues not succeed' In touching his
hearers in the slightest degree. But both the artists •
mentioned were superb compared with Signor Aetna:
This gentlemen , is announced as a basso. At onetime
lie may have possessed a high baritone voice. Just
now, he .• has no voice of any particular
kind, unless it be a mixture of falsetto, broken tenor
ant harsh baritone. It was foolish—almost sacrilegious,
to select him to sing the Quonia,n, which is a splendid
bass solo, and worthy of tho Lest endeavors of a first
rate singer. Signor Beina was by uo means agreeable or
satisfactory. Wo era sorry that the music of this mass
was first presented in this piecemeal manner—to say
nothing of the poverty of the performance.. The compo-
Within is a consecutive work, and we would much rather
have waited until the whole of it could have been given
together with a chorus and proper orchestral accent.
For the rest of the progTareme Mr. Rudolph Hennig
played a concerto by (letterman, and an Elegie by Raz
zliii upon his violoncello. Of course his performance
was great. Hie fine powers were never displayed to
better advantage, although the audience, dull to the
great merit of thoartist, received him with lees enthusi
asm than he deserved. Miss Kellogg sang, for the first
time in America, a - one from Thomas's Hamlet, and
sang it very well. She received an enenrei of corn- so, as
she did when she sang the Crucifixes. There are people
in this world who would insist upon the repetition of ii
long meter hymn in church,' or of a two hours' stump
speeeh at a political meeting, if they thought there was
any iprobability of their being gratified. Miss Alide Topp,
the pianist, gave a- polonaise of Liszt, upon the theme
of "Home, - Sweet Home," and a ,brilliant little
plece of Gottschalk'e. She was called out after
both performances, and compelled to give the people
twice as much as they paid for. Miss Topp's playing is
something to be enthusiastic over. She possesses great
. talent, and lira a very brilliant future . before her. Her
contribution to the concert last evening was in the high
est degree satisfactory. The worst part of the perform
ance was the singing of a duet from Verdi's Den -Caries
'by Boetti and Reins. It was given "for the first time in
America," and we sincerely -- hope for the lust time in
America in that peculiar style. In the first place, Rehm
is wholly incapable, physically, of singing thb music
