REY, AND CUBAN ANNEXATION.
It seems to be generally believed, that
there is some connection between the ab
duction of Rey and the secret operations
in progress for the annexation of Cuba.
The question is. what r'elation do-they bear,
one to the other? We incline to the opin
ion 'htit the former was only an incident
of the latter-that the abduction of Rey
was-an event, consequent upon the annex
ation project., The only difficulty in ar
riving at a satisfactory conclusion in the
matter; lies in.the personal importance of
Rey.. Ve want the. key to that special
purpose-which induced the daring offence
against this government, by Spanish offi
vials; consummated in the abduction of a"
man of Rey's minor standing in society.
Alloiving that a secret expedition against
Cuoa is in progress in-the United States,
there is little doubt but it was originatrd
several mouths. perhaps a year ago; while
the designe nb.doubt. was conceived much
earlier.. The establishment of LaVerdatd,
he.. Spanish paper in New York, was
svwedly for the promotion of Cuban in
dependence; for the gradual enligh'ennient
rf the Cuban people upon the advantages
ar republican institutions,.and the especial
benefits of an alliance with the United
States at any future, period. But why
published in New York ? In -the first
place it could tint be published in Cuba,
but all the vigilance and dexterity of the
Cuban authorities have been iaisufticient
o keep it.ott of the island; it was designed
ror circulation there, and there it has cir
:ulated.- The United States was the coun
ry which most favor.ed Suchi a publication
>y its institutions and the facilities of print..
ngl; and New York-the commercial em
porium, the great heart of population-the
nost suitable place whereat to obtain co
alierative infiuences.for the suppoit of the
paper, and its purposes*with regard to
Cuban independence, and men for the
project of annexation, when fully ripe. In
:enuection with the prosecution of the
;eneral enterprise fostered by La Verulad.
)ersonal intercourse between New York
and Cuba was indispensable, and as a
natter of course the vigilance of the Cap
ain General of Cuba was directed to the
letection of suspected individuals upon the
Island. But with the usual sluggishness
>f Cuban zeal, it appears that a coniriuni
:attion fro,, the Spanish Ptimne Minister,
vavarez, was necessary to wake up Ron
:ali, himself, to. the duties of his office.
Spain was awake to the aspirations.of the
3.rcoles, and the hopes and~stsong -desires
if ~ccrtin folks in America, before Cuba
Alas. The "Pcrl of the Antilles," the
,ri;htest gem in the Spanish coronet, had
teen bid for by the Umited States. A com
mnissioner for the purchase. at least, had
appeared at the very foot of the throne in
he American legation; and hereib was the
onfession, that a wistful leer had been
Itrown across to the island key of the
Gulf. Spain was at once upon the alurt,
md her emissaries, or spies if you please,
vere, beyond doubt, speedily dropped in
he American cities. In the coure of
vents, two gentlemen. Don Cirillo Villa
rerde and .3r. Tolsn, the one engaged in
he publication of La Verdad, and the
>ther in its dissetination in Cuba, were
icked up by the authorities on the Island
md lodged in prison, where they would,
a all probhability, have been quietly dis.
nosed of but for subsequent occurrences.
[n the first place one of the New York pa.
>ers made a considerable stir in the nmut
er, to excite sympathy here; but this not

THE LAI'AYETTE BURR MILL
Mr. Hoyt, the agent of the Company
has just returned from the north where he
informa us the 4uality of the Georgia Burr
Stone lias been examined arid tested by
geologists and workmen; Lind thQ prefer
ence invariably given to i.t over the' French..
We extract the fo.loIing article on the
subject from the'Scientic Amnerican of the
ISth inst :
The stone most commonly used ''fr
grinding wheat, is known by the name of
"French Rurr," because they are import
ed from that 'bountry. This species of
stone is a porous silicious mineral, so very
hard, that a pair of millstones will last
quite- a number of fears. at full work,
withot being worn out. The French
burr stones, owir4g to thei great price, has
from time to time stimulated. both the
Americans and English, to many efforts
to sup'ersede them. Du.ring the last war
between France and England, when it
was .imtiossible to get burr stories, the
London Society of Arts, offered a yre
lthiutm of i gold niedal, o- One trirdred
pounds for the discovery of a quarry pro
ducing stones equal to the French Burrs.
A quarry was discovered-in Vales with
stones siml'a'r to the French, and answer
ed tolerably, but they were' not equal to
the 'renh: A number of masses of rock
ivere,also discovered at Sterling, Scotland;
and made into stones, some of which in.
deed gave better - satisfaction than the
French burr, as they were of a moru even
texture- but the Fren'ch stone still carried
the bell. In our counlitry a substitute for
it, has long been a desideratum. This
has now been obtained. In Burk Codn
ty in the State of Georgia, a large quarry
embracing an area of 17,000 acres his
been discovered, and a Company named
the LaFayette Burr 1Mill Stone Co.; has
been formed to work it and ftirriish Ameri
'esn Mill stones, ecjual to ihe French Burr.
The principle ofilce of this Company is in
Savannah. About 1,000 sets of stones
have already been put, and are now in
operation. and some of them alongside of
the French, .whera in every instance they
liate etqualled-and a little more, tthe very
best French Burrs. Samples of this stone
have been in our office for some time. We
have contrasted therm in every way with
French burro. from which without know
ing that the one came front France and
the other from Georgia, no person could
point out, a difference. Those who have
used the Georgia.stdoe,.piefer itfor.a!mmre
enduring fine sharpness, and in. that case,
it is more economical to use. From what
we have seen of the Georgia stone, and
heard about i fed-n the most respectable
sources. respecting its practical results, we
are confident the iuarry must he of im
mouae value.-A Friend of the Vaniily.

.lford...'here was not, said he, readr enough
lr us in the wholk dhy. I deli it Eng
lish goods. - One great trade came their,
.who had the market to himself; he was
quit'e.The great man, and he did is q favor
.if he bold us goods. Somehow I ofeaded
hit, and be refused to show run his pat
terns. This was oln Tuesday. I laid to
my father. I will go to England. I, cpuld
speak nothing but German.. dn Thurs
day I started. The nearer I got to Eng
land the cheaper goods were. As soon as
I got to Manchester, I laid out ill my
muney-things wei-e so cheap; aid I made
good profit. I snon found that the-e. were
three profits-the raw material, the dyeing
and the manufacturing. I said to the
manufacturer I will supply you with the
mdaterial and dye, and you supply we with
:te manfbactured good'. So. I gdt. three
profits instead of one, and i could sell
goods cheaper than any Body. It a short
time I rma-le my twenty thousand piunds
into sixty. My success all turned do one
maxim. I saidl [can do what any other
mad ein; and so I am a. niatch Idr the
than witi tie liatieras 'od for all the rest .
of them. Another advantage I had. I -
was an of-hand man. I made a bargain
at once. When I settled, in London, the
East Indid Company had eight lindred
thousand pounds of gdld to el.l. I went.
to the sale and bought it all. I kiiew that
the Duke or Wellington must bave it. I
had bought a great many of his bills at
a discount. 'h6 geveronient spnt for me
and said they must have it. Wled they
had, got it. they did dot know hdwlio get it
to Portugal. I undertook all that aiid I sent
it through France, and that wias the best
business I ever did.
Another maxim ou which lie seeined to
place great reliance ivas, never to have
anything to do with an unlucky jian. 'I
have seen said he 'many clever mndavery
clever men-who had not shoes, to their
feet. I never act with them. Their ad
vice sounds very well, but fate is against
tliem; they cannot get, tliemselves, and if
they cannot do good to themselves; how.
can they do good for me?'. By aid of.
thesi-maxims he has acquired. three mil=
lionus of mdne7. 'I hope,' sait , that
oirliolifiri.are.fnot.too- food -of money .
and business, to the exclusion of More im
portant things. I am sure you iiould not
wish that,' said R. 'I wish ihetn to give
n;ind, and soul, and heart, and body. and
every thing to business; that is the way to
he happy. It requires a greai deal of
oldness, and a great deal of caution, to
riake a great fortune; and when you have
got it, it requires ten times as much wit to
keep it. If'I were to listen to all the pro
jcts prdposed to the. I should ruin myself
very soon. Stick to one business, young
man,' said he to Edward; 'stick to your
brewery and you may be the greatest
b'rewei- of Loudon. le a brewer, and a
banker, and a merchant, and a manufactu
rer. and you will soon be in- the Gazette.'
Ore of my neighbore is a very ill tempered
man, he tries to vext me, and has built a
great place for swine clnse to my walk.
So, when I go otit. I hear first grunt. grunt
-squeak, squeak; but this does me no
harm. I am always in good humor."
