Recent Spanish telegrams, although
vague and coutrudlutory us usual, show
that the llnal triumph of the inucli-endiir-Ing
Cuban patriots is not far off. Count
Vaumaseoa ofllelously telegraphs from
Santiago to the volunteers of Havana (hat
the Kdgar Stuart wns nt Kingston, Jamaica,
dischaiging her cargo of arms and ammu
nition intended for (he patriots. A few
days Infer she sails wldi her cargo for
Cuba. Then Valmarhda Issues n proclama
tion to tho effect that tho Villas district is
pacified. In thu same week comes the In
telligence thut the Cuban Gen. Villa mil
has Invaded that district, which Is devoid
of Spanish irgtllars, at the head of six hun
dred armed and disciplined men. Of the

Yesterday 1111110 a despatch that the most
cruel and most mercenary of all tho Span
ish butchers in Cuba, Gen. Gokzaluz Uoet,
had discovered a conspiracy among tho
Cuban prisoners In his hands. Tlio Span
lards do not make, and never havo made
ptlsoucrs. Hut as tho despatch states that
the discovered conplracy extended from
Caseono uud Gtiiatnnro to Sabauleu, Las
Tunas, Man.anlllo and other places, It Is
evident that Uolt Is about to Inaugurate
another general massacre of Innocent and
wealthy persons, similar to those in Jlgua
nl and Mauzajilllo, for which lie wus tried,
and was acquitted solely becauo his attor
ney, 111 case of his client's condemnation,
threatened to iuculputu tho highest mi-"

That tlio patriots sliuuld be able to pnro
detachments to harass Spanish guuboaU
when entering the ports of flic const, aj in

was probably discharging licr cargo In the
harbor of Italics, when tho C'uuto so rash

A novel question of copyright has been
taken Into tho courts for decision. Nr. Alt
Tiiuit 1'aiito.n, nn nrtlst of this city, sold some
years no n small pnlutlng to a gentleman In
Connecticut, who aftcrwnrd sold It to a Huston
picture dealer, from whom It was purchased by
Mr. Lot-is I'll AMI, who reproduced It In chrumo.
No stipulation In regard to any use of the pic
ture was attached to these sales. On tho publi
cation of the chroiao Mr. 1'aiiton entered a
claim fur copirlght, based on that provision of
tho law of 1S11 giving an author the sole right
to ids manuscript, and prohibiting Its publica
tion unless his authority, duly attested, had
been given. Mr. PaiiIoN Insists that this law
rovers his case, and that a painting Is, to all In
tents and purposes, n manuscript, so far as re
lates to publication. The defence Is that a man
uscript it intended solely for publication, and Is
only voliiablo when It Is published ; whereas a
painting Is a completed work In itself. If Mr.
I'aiito.n'8 claim should be sustained, It Is argued
that tho rule would bo established that the pur
chaser of a painting, In point of fact, would
purchase merely tho canvas nnd tho pigments
lied In producing It while tho deslKU would
remain the property of thu iirtUt, who could
order or prevent Its reproduction In chrumo, cn

Yesterday morning over two hundred
cabinet makers assembled In Grand street, near

ly Germans, employed In tho large factories In
Dutchtown. Forming Inline they marched to
tho different shops nnd sent In committees to
Interview tho eniploirrs. The committee wcro
generally well received and the question ar
gued. Some fear that this strlko may cause the re
moval of this trade down Hast, where theso
goods, It Is claimed, can ho mado at lesscxpcnso
and shipped to New York with greater profit to
the bosses than nceruos to them now by manu
facturing them at homo, where rent and every

It Is estimated that thero arc, over 5.00J ponplo

neon. George K. MeN'Icl of Cambrldgo was
chosen President, with a long list of Vice-Presidents
nnd five Secretaries. About two hundred
persons wero present at tho opening.
Ira Stow art ot Charlos town presented resolu
tions declaring that poverty Is- the great fact
with which tho tabor movement deals, and that
cooperation In labor Is tho final result to bo ob
tained: that a reduction of the hours of labor
Is tho first step toward labor reform, and that
tho emancipation of labor from tho shivery and
Ignorance uf poverty solves all the problems that
now most disturb nod perplex mnuklnd, and do
luandlng legidutlou regulating tlio hours of la
bor, by which tlie patent on an nrtlcle shall he
forfeited If labor Is eiuplo.-cd In Its manufac
ture more than eight hours n day ; and that eight
hours bo mado a legal day's work throughout
the country by legislative enactments.
The resolutions further affirm that less pay Is
not the natural sequence of less hours of labor.
They also claim that tlio Issues between the
political parties arc not laborers' ipiestlun. nnd
whether tho masses liaie anything to rhoixe
between President Grant and Horace Greeley
turns entirely on the question which ono of the
two will lie most likely to secure the legislation
demanded. Other resolutions condemned the
factory system mid the legislative action on the
llureau of SlalUtles of l.ibor. und encoded llio
greetliigsof tlie League lo trades unions through
out tho world.
The Hov. George Trask. tho nntl-tobncco

fourteen hours 11 day or die. Many of tho me
chanics wcro slaves to opium, tobacco, nnd
stri ng dilnk, nud it they could bo freed from

form. Tho Chairman reminded tho speaker that It
was an Light-hours Convention and not an nntl

N. 1". Cluiao explained that they stood on n
free platform, and that bo did not believe In tho
excluslveness of trades unions. Mr. Cliaso then
discussed the general labor question at soma
length. Ho was ready to cooperate with tho
mechanics of Huston In a strlko for eight hours.
Tlie President said they had received several
letters, and read ono from Hon. U.S. Dawes,
endorsing the movement. Gon. Hutler. Senator
