Xcir York. Aug. 5 A Herald special
from Tampa, Fla , says:
The Cabana arc evidently not mistaken
irb.cn they boast ot their ability to land
expeditions" from this country In Cuba la
spite or the ulruost-rijiinnce of tbe United
States and Spain combined. The expedi
tion of Gen. Roloff was belated and
stranded aud almost starved for forty
days on a small Isolated key off the coast
(pf. Florida, though in sight of passing ves
sels. This expedition Is said to have cost
the revolutionary party more than $100,
000. The cost, perils and hardships trero
srcntly augmented by the failure of tho
steamer chartered to carry them to Cuba
to find tho particular Ley on which they
were hhlhis and the necessity of securing
another vessel The story of this expedi
tion Is enough to excite universal sym
pathy Tor the exiles who are struggling
so hard to reluru to their isle in order to
fight for her freedom.
About June 6 ilnj. Gen. Eohiff, with
Bris. Gen Santhrz, left Key West with
alwut -00 men. nearly all vitcransor the
last war. They made their a) in sev
eral iiiiall boats to a kej prwiouuly ugreed
upon, where they were to be picked up
hj a steamer tiiarUTeU by the junta in
Kctv York. They -were Joined on tills key
bj Lieut. Cul Al.iria RoUrigutz ant a band
or stwntj-fhe plcketl elerans from San
Domingo, who sailed from Porta Plata
in aelarge schooner. Day after day passed
and the- suntrics watching lor the long
looked fur steamer saw man) vessels of all
kinds pass up "and down the coast, hut
none (lisplajed the signal agreed upou nor
ran in toward the key. Afraid to display
signals for fear or hailing the wrung vts-
scl, they at last realized that their plan
had miscarried. Their stock of pmrisions
had run low, and they were obliged to sup
pi) their wants in some manner. This was
a difficult tnatur and was not accom
plished before they were reduced for days
to starvation diet.
Expos-d to tbe elements and fierce
tropical sun on a sandy key, with almost no
food and poor water, they suffered Rreatly
and abcut thirty of them, from ph)sical
weakness, were forced to desert or die.
They Here bouud l)y a strict oath and
then allowed to sail for Tampa.
Gen 'Rolorf determined. to save the expe
dition H took a email boat and with a
ngro sailor made a distant Florida port
nnd went to Now York. There he remained
two weeks with the Cuban leaders, se
cjretl another steamer and sailed on It In
order to direct the captains to tbe right
Tho steamer picked up the party and In
stead of sailing directly to the north coast
of Cuba, they circled the Island, passing
in nlmost hailing distance of several
Spanish gunboals and under covxr of a
foggy night, landd the expedition orf the
coast of Santa Spirita, near Las Tunas
de Zazo, on July 27.

A Itolativo of Cliarlea Sumner.
Boston, Aug. S. James Sumner died
last night at tho old Sumner homestead,
Milton. He was born in tbe homestead.
May 28, 1831. His rather was cousin
to -the famous sheriff of Suffolk County,
distinguished as the father of Charles Sum
ner. In tbe South, Just after the war,
be held an official position in the depart
ment of internal revenue. After some
years spent In tbe South, he returned to
Massachusetts, and, studying the usual
term in Hnrvard law school, was admitted
to the bar in 1861. In 188S be was nom
inated ns the Greenback Governor of Mas
sachusetts. MAP OF THE
The WEATHER MAP here printed was prepared from observations in the United
States aud Canada, mad at tbe same moment of lime; that is, at Washington 8
o. m., Eastern'tlme, and at San Francisco at 5 a. m.,Padfiotime. By this means we
have here a bird's eye view of the weather over the Thole country. By examining
map after map as they appear we can see the changes that have occurred, and can
get some idea of tbe probable, weather to follow. On the above map there is marked
niQH off the South Atlantic coast aDd North Pacific: coast. Theso highs usually
lndlcato clear weather; in winter, cool, but in summer cool only in the far east
front, as they move toward the East. The clear skies at tho center or the high
in tbe summer permit intense insolation, and very often our hottest waves come
lust after tbe high has passed.
A J,OW is marked in Minnesota. This indicates a disturbed region, with more
orlessratn. In th Missouri and Upper Mis sisstppl Valleys this rain afrequently oc
curs in tho rear ot LOW. In the cast part of the country, however, i bulk or the
ralu falls In the front of the LOW. Br rs memberlng these principles Si that HIQH
and LOWS move generally toward tbe EA8 T we can calculate coming .ther.
