The Daily Dispatch: June 28, 1861., [Electronic resource], From the
Dominican Republic. (search)
From the Dominican Republic. --Letters just received from Port-an-Prince, state that Gen. Santana, who has assumed the title of Captain-General, caused the parties who had been arrested at Moca to be tried by court-martial. Five were condemned to death and were shot, and forty to hard labor for life.--No Spanish officer or soldier was a member of the court-martial, nor did the Spanish troops take any part in the execution of the sentence. An arrival at New York brings later advices from St. Domingo. Five important towns in the interior of Dominica have been fortified. The Dominicans were assisted by the Haytians, and intend to resist the Spanish progress. It was reported that the inhabitants of a village has been massacred by the Spanish troops, because they refused to swear allegiance to Spain; and also, that the Spanish troops were defeated in a small engagement.
