Senor Vsliata, ag vt if the Cuban revolution.
1sts, has issued an addlrees to the American people.
After reciting the g vmnces long endured by the
Cubans under the civil and military tyranny of
Spain, and their previous dlsatrous attempts to
throw c.l the yoke, he says the revolution has
steadily grown, promising to 'eallse all the hopes
of the patriots. The Cuban 1.berating army is
steadily increasing and now comprises 42,000 men.
Their lines run in a westerly direction to Sagus ia
t;rasde, without reaching the seLboard either
north or south, or the necessary arma~ent to hold
it; but the territory pointed out is nearly two
thirds of Cuba, in which slavery has been abolish
ed. In the remainder of the island, no uprising
has occurred for want of arms.
The address concludes: "Cuba is fairly started
on her way to national independence. Her sons,
lighting for it these six months without violation
of your neutrality laws, are entitled to the earnest
sympathy of your people, a&d more so as their
struggle involves the American principle that no
European power shall control any country upon

THE GRAIN TRADE.
MEETING OF TIHE CIIAMBEB OF
There was a special meeting of the Chamber of
Commerce held last evening in accordance with
previous announcement, to consider what steps ,
may be taken by our merchants looking to co. fin
operation with those of St. Louis in attracting let
hither the grain trade of the West; also to con
eider any propositions that may be made in refer by
ence to the present system of flour inspection in
this city. 8.
A numerous assemblage was present. A com- n
munication was read by the president, G. A. A i
Fotdick, Esq., from Meears. Blayback, Camore and tbh
other gentlemen, regarding a call of the Cham. oel
Ler of Commerce. Mr. Fosdick in a few remarks
dwelt upon the grain trade and Its importance to to
the commercial interests of New Orleans. the
Dispatches from Messrs. Blayback and others urn
were read as follows, viz:

There could be but one opinion, Mr. O. said, on
as to the importance of such an organization; ey
the falling oil ou the cottoa trade had created a
grain elevator movement here, he showed how re
many advantages in the wry to its encourage- in
ment had been lost by cur merchants. After re
capitulating the well known facts in reference to in
the transportation of grain, and the rate per in
bushel, Mr. Oglesby went on to say that the tb
proper way in which to meet thil matter was to
through the banks. Money could be borrowed on th
warehouse receipts In Western cities, but no tic
money would be loaned here on such a basis. no
The market, too, should, he thought, be stocked wi
with grain, so that all orders on arrival might at in,
once be filed. The other day an order for wheat an
arrived, but could not be filled, for the grain was dii
not here. Yet, said the speaker, sixteen years T,
since only sixtyasix bushels of grain had in one Cs
year been received in Chicago, while now there I
are annually received sixty-six mitlions of w
Being asked in reference to the employment of an
capital from Chiosqo to move the grain, the cr
speaker replied that be had no reference to the mar
kets of Chicago, but only to the necessities of fot
New Orleans. ye
A report of a meeting held in St. Louts, urging ai
the measure cintemplated, and calling upon mer- he
chants to contribute means, was read from the St. es
Mr. Borwell remarked that the object of the so
meeting there referred to was simply to raise mi
1200,000 for the purpose of encouraging the Ict
trade. He then went on to speak at some length, aL
dwelling with much interest upon the merits of ch
the grain trade, its machinery, negotiable certifi
cates, etc. He suggested the establishment of a
line of propcllers between this and ultimate ports. p
New Or!eanri holds the grain trade in her hand if
ehe will tout grasp it; if not, others will. The pn
cotton t~ede commerces in October and ends in as
Mvy. What sre our merchants to do in the other At
monthe? The grain could not be stored here as
in Chicago, but it could be transported.
Mr. Dolhonde was of opinion that the elevator EC
here oflt, rs as many facilities for storage and dry

Mr. Tucker soegeated tbathoe did not seae whyour

Mr. Ogleshy ex, reseed his dissent from Mr. be
Pourwell's op:n;lo Lhat grain coulI not be stored R
here. He tho-uht there was no diffi.:ulty on thisr

After closing my letter yesterday, I passed
over to the Senate Chamber and found the senator
in one of his spasms of talk. He is not distinguIsh
ed by his personal get up, nor attractive from his
graces of oratory. Small of statore, and very
slender, he throws his little round skull forward
from his shoulders like the figure-head of a vessel,
and jerks his words out In a crack-whip sort of a
way that is made yet more striking by the jerky
restloulation with which he accompanies them.
He reminds one of that feeble-minded Tits Bar
nacle by a continual contest with his gold rimmed
eye-glosses that will not remain on his nose.
ie was attacking the Providence Journal, that
Efhbsi ot n uties. uad mace unhppy. The
reference was well understood, and the paper said
in the mildest way precisely what his brother
senators thought, and the pahlic openly asserts,
and that is, that the honorable little senator is not
in his right mind. These are the sort of stories
in circulation about Washington. It is said that
the senator is mad.
Hearing these, I must say I was somewhat as
tonolshed while listening to the little senator from
the little State. He was not talking like a luna
tie by any manner of means. His address was
not the most polished or in the beet taste, but it'
was full of meaning, statistical facts, and what I
consider sound sense. Do you know, after read
ing the results of David A. Welle's investigation,
and being well aware myself of the unhappy con
dition of the country, the shrill, clear, earnest
voice of the senator, coming up from such a
strange place, sounded to me like the unspired
Cassandra foretelling rain and disaster.
Senator Sprague and his brother are said to be
worth over thirty millions. He is the head, the
business manager and guide in the vast operations
that involve towns and counties, buge factories
and thousands of laborers: and yet here he is,
crying out ruin, and warning us that our financial
policy means bankruptcy. He may be insane, but
for dII that utters a deal of good sena. He said
yesterday: " I am not troubled about my private
aairs. They are well enough. I have what I
have through a process that has crushed others
engaged in the same pursuits as myself."
Of course he need not trouble himself. We have
