of the popul tion in making a movement in and
response to the calls of the revolutionary the
committee, c used their zeal, or their courae, wit
to be called i question. The statement of a the
rising in the 6iest was made in terms so vague scol
and general that. at first, it seemed to be bile
more the eapression of a desire than the orgy
recital of a fict. It appears, however, that 13t1
the report nu:s well founded. The details are dre;
given in the 'orrespondence of the New York late
World-by tr the most intelligent and au p:t
thentic that comes from Cuba. It aI pears witl
that the de: c was caused by an arrangement reri
making a nu vement dependent on the arrival
of parties firm New York anti New Or!.ans. y
It is now a ted that the New York pirty,
headed by r. Cisneros, lately editor of the o
Pais, had ac aly hlnded, and formed a jurnc. chi
tion with a force of insurgents commandel hr
by Carlos (; cia Prieto. This force has bheu tantr

As the rel It has manifested itself in the perfi

of a letter I riter that the "whole island ;s

n'tl PEACE JVBMhh
Not to know the existence and not to un
EANS, derstand the nature of an undertaking by the
title of the "Great National Peace Jubilee
and Musical Festival," to be held in June
next on Boston Common, argues a lamentable
degree of mental remoteness from the chief
seat of civilization and loyalty in this coun
,, ; ty. We blush to think that, through jour
nalistic delinquency, we may have helped to
. keep the public mind in darkness as to this
g(ee)lorious enterprise which is to be consum
mated in the most toploftical, transcendental,
thaumaturgical compound of "trooly loil"
claptrap. balderdash and bosh that will have
been witnessed within the sacred precincts of
the "Hub" since the "Hub" commenced to
or e- "rotate through all creation." Well, we will
try to make amends for our short-coming in
this particular, and thus mollify the offended
Minerva of the "Modern Athens." The pro
jector and leader of this enterprise bears the
terrestrial cognomen of Gilmore, aname asso
ciated with a famous effusion of noise and
explosion of pyrotechny and display of flnum
mery in the gorgeous days when Banks was
military satrap in Louisiana, and Hahn
was his gubernatorial underatrapper. Indeed,
this musical boanerge does our poor city the
L honor to say that the germ of his present
grand conception originated in New Orleans
in the shape of an exploit of vocal clamor
tory and metallic blare, and racket, and thunder,
iral, invstted and achieved by him in celebration
o e. of the event when Don Quixote Banks made
ge Sancho P'anza Hahn governor of the State of
S.rn Barataria. Ile refers to that triumphant
urt occasion in answer to journalists of New
hmYok who, jealous of the mammoth organ i
ardl and other eclipsing bignesses in Bostn, pre
tend to smile incredulously at the unheard of
l magnitude of the projected festival. "Gen- t
tlemen," he proudly says, " in New Orleans,
on the 4th of March, eI4. on the occasion of i
the the inauguration of Gov. Hahn, a concert
the was given in Lafayette Square, which I con- I
ing ducted. There was a chorus of ten thousand t
voices, selected from the children of the 1
public schools, and an orchestra of five hun- v
ad dred musicians. This chorus and orchestra, it
Lion with artillery and infantry, and all the bells g
deed in the city ringing, poured out in the anthems v
de, of liberty over regenerated Louisiana. That ti
n of was a success. And this cannot help being a c
too success as well." b
ls \ And no doubt the second will be as signal 5
had a triumph in the sense of a testimony "in e'
ate honor of the restoration of peace throughout a,
hen the land," as was the first in the sense of a b
ou testimony in honor of liberty and regenera- k:
nes tion. The peace to be celebrated in the com- at
ing jubilee will be on a par with the liberty Si
a' which was sung in the Gilmore-Banks- st
or Ilahn musical splurge in 1864. There was w
of nothing of either in the latter case, and if ri
there will be anything of one or the other, or
of both, in the former, it will not be the fault
of these who have been enacting for four
so years the exquisite irony of organizing peace d
tes with the appliances of war and establishing
ch liberty amid all the conditions of despotism.
to Nevertheless, let us glanceat the progumme
of tLis "'Great National Peace Jubilee and
w usial festival." We read in its special organ tL
I' that it is to le hell in a ''coliseum" erected

dating fifty thousand people, and arranged 1
inside similarly to the largest and most ele- aI
h3 gant of theaters, with parquetto, parluette
ta circ!c, dress cilchs and balconies, and in ad
)n dition a grand promenade around the whole. In
ly This exceeds anything of the kind in ancient mU
bt. ion:e, though in point of capacity it does not al
of come up to the primitive theaters of ancient to
)n Greece, which were as wide as the horizon to
in and as high as the blue heavens which formed an
ry their dmtes. ];,,t this was only nature's work, al

cause they have no nerves to be shocked anl
no ears to be tortured.
Further remark at this time is unnecessary.
We have said enough to illustrate the musical
taste and ambition which reside at the " IIub
of ('reation."' In splite, however, of the clap
trap, balderdash and tosh which characterize a
the enterprise, let us hope that we are at
I(t'th to have peace which will be more gen- tion
uine than either the music or the grandeur of quar
coming jubilee. . I so

THI NIUlpgIIPPI VALLETY NAVIGATION
COMPANY OF THI OUTH AND WEST.
by the Some time since we published the names of
ubilee the directors of this company as an item of
June local news, and for the purpose of aiding the
utable recollections of our readers that there
chief was such an enterprise in our midst.
coun- Capt. De Haven, the president of
jour- this company, has been untiring in
ped to his efforts to accomplish this result.
o this lie has devoted much time to devising
asum- plans by which we might cheapen transpor.
ental, tation on our rivers, increase the speed of
loil" our boats and at the same time secure safety
have and comfort. The problem whichibe endeav.
ets of ored to solve was the use of low-pressure en
ed to gines on the boats of all of our Southern
e will rivers. The mechanical difficulties which
,ng in have hitherto stood in the way of success he
jnded has, we believe, overcome, and henceforth we
pro- may see low-pressure steamboats supersede
a the those which have hitherto been in use. This
asso- company proposes to build and is now build
and ing a boat on this principle, applying the im
poat- provements of Capt. DeHaven, which have all
was been patented, and can be applied only to the
Eahn boats built by this company.
Seed, It is claimed that boats of greater capacity,
y the greater space and safety, can be constructed
sent on this plan, and, at the same time, carry the
leans produce and mercandise of the country at
amor greatly reduced rates. Cheap, speedy and
ader, safe transportation is what this country needs
ation and must have, and if this company can give
unde it to us, let us hail its inauguration as the com
te of mencement of a new era in the history of this
hant city. In speaking in favor of this enterprise
New we do not wish to be understood as dispar
rgan aging any other. We propose to encourage
pre- every one that brings to us increased benefits.
rd of We have examined the list of the names of
len- the subscribers, and the charter of the com
tans, pany, and it appears to us to be in a flourish
m of iag condition.
teert One feature in the charter enables the com
con- pany to take lands in payment of subscrip
sand tions to the capital stock of the company.
the These lands are to be taken at their cash
inn- value, and the company propose to encourage
tra, immigration and sell out such lands to immi
)ells grants in quantities to suit. Those who in
ems vest lands in this manner receive in lica cer- r
Chat tificates of paid up stock. OtTers of lands are
g a coning mu rapidly. The calpital stock has n
been recently increased from ,500,00 to 1
inal 51,000,0.ts The company, we are told, hias
"in every reason to hope for success. This
tout autumn will witness the first of a series of
)fa boats of this contemplated class. We all
era- know with what success low-pressure boats
om- are run on the Hudson river and Long I. and v
irty Sound, in direct competition with the most E
iks- successfully managed railroads. Why should c
was we not have the same success on our Southern
I it rivers ? E
ort "If the South were sane enough to behave B
ut herself we should almost despair," says Wen
our dell lhillips in a recent number of the Anti- 1i
in Slavery Standard. What he means is easily
.penetrated. It is the underlying thought
me of the whole Radical party in re
nd spect to the situation of affairs in the South fr
and the reliations of the Southern States to a
d the feleral government. To lquote one of his fo
by own proverbs, with a new application, "the cc
more trouble, the more lion," Radicalism, o0
ed like a hopeless drunkard, is only to be kept
ae- alive by irritants. It won't do for the Radical lo
:tt l doctors to let the South be at rest. The sp
d- must manage to organize chronic trouble there

e. mens and final paralysis. If they should
lot allow the uth to "l,,have herself," that jis
nt to Lay, it they should permit her restoration Io
to real and essential conditions of tranquility loe
ed and harmony, their party would be without
k, a pret~xt to hang its schemes upon. To have
ei- even the pretense of a reason for existence,
, 1 and, more than all, to command the instru.
mentalities of success, the party must resent
ne as a blow aimed at its own life every measure
that truly looks to the "peace" at the South

we feel certain, has no business in church in that
plight. We suddenly turned our eyes away to the
right, when they fell upon this writing in a large,
plain hand: 'Abe Lincoln is a brick.' Again to

when we read in large capitals, 'Why the h- use

catafalque for the reception of the cffin, cano-o

ornamented with black feathers. The aisles and
the choir were bnug with black. The two sides of
