Ko li pd-Arrival ot the Bxllcs In new
Among the arrivals at Ne? York Crom Liver?
pool bj the Java, on Tuesday, were Jose
Manuel Ponce ce Leon, Jose Manuel Fernan?
den, and De Freizaa, three of the company of j
Cabans, two hnndred and fifty in number,
who were exiled to Fernando Po la~t .March.
They leave behind in Liverpool ?ixteen others
of the company, wno are to follow them by the
2Btca and the Scotia. Thoy were of the
wealthiest citizens of cuba.
They tell a tearful story of their sufferings
m exile. Tbe treatment; on shipboard by tbe
Spaniards was terrible. They were crowded
together in the most shocking manner, like
coolies or slavts from Africa, and conipe led to
pay fabulons prices tor food. After their ra?
tal about half the prisoner a obtained qu artera
at the English li oto! and the rest were obliged
to live in native huts. Ti mae who bave now
arrived in New York and io Liverpool, ea- j
caped, after a month of exile, in canoes
formed from the hollow of trees. Outside
the island they were picked np by a small
sloop which they bad hired of an English?
man, and then made for Old Calabar, near the
mouth of die Bio Calabar, on the ooast of
Gamea. They were well treated by the Eng?
lish people and the negroes*. The king called I
ont bis warriors and prepared to derend the
escaped exiles agaii.st the Spaniards if tbey
shon'd send to retake them. The governor of |
Fernando Po, learntnir that nineteen of his
prisoners had escaped, sent after then toe
armed steamship Concordia. She entered the '
poi t of Calabar three days aftei tbe srn val of j
the Cu ban B ?od her captain demanded th? t
they should becrven np to Spanish authority.
This tno king refused to do, at the same time
warning the Spanish commander of the Co J
oordfa tbat if he took the Cabans away it
would cost bim a severe fight. The Con?
cordia left fir Fernando Po for instraetione.
While gone, the Cabans embarked on an
English vessel for Bani, which place they safe?
ly reached, and secured passage on the English I
mail steamer Biafra, for Liverpool. After |
having secured their passage and gone aboard
the Biafra, the. Concordia made her appear- .
ance, and her captain demanded the bodies of J
ttH??peteoD Cuban passengers. OapU Cross,
of the Biafra, refused to give them ap. Tho
natives prepared to defend th m should the
captain of the Concordia endeavor lo employ
force in the case. This he did not do.- ' i fae
Blairs sailed with her passengers all on board,
and arrived at Liverpool on the 30th ultimo.
The next day three of them sailed for this :

gentlemen represent a capital of thirty mil

Tbs Washington oerreepondent of the Phila?
delphia Ledger writes ander date of Thsrs
The President said this morning that no con
ilusi?n will be reached in the Coban matter till
Marshal Serrano shall be heard from. No news
?rom Madrid has been received here since last
it ie now transpired that? private gentle
nan, an intimate, friend of Captain-General
Prim, left New York for Madrid two days be
ore. General Sicken., and. ?anhad, Madrid a.
reek before tho latter. On his arrival he laid
he whole of General Bickies' ins true tiona be?
?ore tbe Captain-Gen ural and Marshal Serrano,
o ascertain the feeling before a formal pre?
sentation by the Minister, and reported te tbe
ul ministration in this country that the propo?
sitions advanced had been very favorably re?
ceived. The most important proposition con?
tained in these instructions was one eug
resting, in s friendly manner, to Spain,
that they agree to the appointment of
? mixed commission, composed of Span?
iards and Cob tris, or a Spaniard and a
Cuban, who shall meet in tbe City of Washing?
ton, and fix apon s price, at which the island
shall be sold to the Cabans. It is said, also,
that tbe name of President Grant is mentioned
to be appointed president of ' the commission,
but I cannot vouch for the correctness ol that.
The island of Cuba, by an agreement of this
kind, wonld be paid for from, its own revenues,
and the statement that the United States offers
in any way to guarantee th<> bonds, there is the
best authority for stating, is unqualifiedly
raise. The Cabans claim that the customs
collections will pay any reasonable sam in a
very short time, and they ask no foreign aid to
make the payment.
Marshal Serrano. Regent of Spain, and Cap?
tain-General Prim are now considering the
matter. In the Cabinet at tbe White House
yesterday, tho subject was broached and dis?
cussed, but no definite result ?as retched. We
shall hear front Maand in a few daye. Mean?
time, those who seem to know most, and who
pught, entertain no fear that ihe propositions
will be agreed to by Spain. If tbey are no:,
tben all concede that the next actio-i of our
administration will be to show i considerably
relaxed disposition towards Coba, whicb will
amount to s virtual recognition of ber inde?
pendence. A representative of tbe Cuban Jun?
ta, now here, is in unusually treed spirits, and
professes to know that the independence of
Coba will be an accomplished fact before thc
end of the year."
ZOVE AND MURDER.
Terrible Tragedy In New Orleans-A
Creole Shoots his Sweetheart and tallis
Himself-A Corseas Case.
Gaston Ferret, a Creole, about thirty-two
years of age, employed as a clerk in a store oo
the corner of Bayon road and Esplanade-street,
New Orleans, not being able to cain the affec?
tions of Maggie Walker, of No. 31 Rampart
street, between Customhouse and Bienville,
after six months' courtship, called upon her
on Thursday, m the backyard ot her residence,
and after satisfying himself from her own lips
(bat she loved a clerk in a commission house
on Canal-streot, drew a la ree Colt's revolver
and shot her m the left obeek. li e then placed
the muzzle to his own chin and sent a ba'! up?
ward through the place where his brains ought
to have been. Tbe girl was ordored to tbe
Charity Hospital, and the coroner sent for, as
Ferret, thoogh still alive, was evidently dying.
He lay apon hie back, breathing heavily, and a
sanguine tide issuing from bis mouth. Tbe
ball in its coarse through his head bad bulged
ont his eyes, rendering hideous his face,
blackened by the congealing blood, while over
the pale lips had settled a bloody, frothy foam.
In the pocket of Ferret was found tho subjoin?
ed lotter :
"I have BO mach endured that I am tired of
living any more; after a lons straggle between
life .fed death, my fate is to finish my life
with this bloody tragedy.
"No man can imagine what I have Buffered in
Ihe lost ten years. Ten years ago I swore to
toll myself at thirty years of age if my condi?
tion in life had not changed before that time.
Instead of getting better, I have sank from
bad to worse. I have passed., throng h all the
passions tbat can tortore a human heart; the
last of all love-accursed love-had to give the
last stroke to my existence. Bat I cannot
leave this cursed world alone. I am bound to
take before I die the life of the woman I love
madly, aod by whom I have been (mad?) so
mach unhappy for the last six mouths.

fore my eyes, because I am positively sore

The judge took occasion to point out the
patriotic duty they owed to the government,
md to society in doing their part in enforcing
the laws. The essential importance of sus?
taining tbe revenue laws was especially dwelt
upon, and the obligation of every omen to
nanner, the argument against all repudiation
>f tba public debt, ana maintained that the
aonor and interest of the n ition were alike in?
volved in paying all its obligations. The
Jebt was contracted "to save the life of the
nation." The remarks of bis Honor on this
bead, seemed to grow out ot the subject of bis
charge as to numerous bills of indictments
niven out for violations of the revenue laws.
He said, however, that it was an indisputable
tact that the laws of the United States were as
readily and impartially executed in South Car?
olina as io Massachusetts or Ohio, and the
Innes here did their duty as well as the juries
in any other State; that bo had so stated to

ing this remark from the jndge as a jost com?
pliment to the honor of South Carolina?- ci li?

source to rebuke these slanderers wherever ko j

Modern Naval History-A New Port
How it was Created-What tt is.
A Berlin letter says:
If we are a nation we must have a national
flag. But what is the use ot having a nt. tional
flag unless you can show it to your neighbors
in paiticalar, and to all the world in genera]?
Now, your next neighbors can see it across the
frontier, and along the line of river boundary.
But this wili not answer for transatlantic and
otherwise transoceanic peoples whom you wish
lo impress with an idea of your importance,
lime, you nrght send them your flag by some
loreign letter bag, ask them to tarean Admiring
look, impress it upon their retinas and their
memories, and send it back by return mail.
But this, foi a great nation, would be dec.de?
ly infra dig. How do other great nations man?
age this little matter? We all know very well.
They build ships, frigates, steamers and iron?
clads, mount them with men and cannon, and
send them to cir umnavigato the globe with
their flag flying over them. There's the flag,
here aro tho men to d?tend its honor and up
bold its glory. Thus do the United States,
England ana France, and not only all the civil?
ized nations, but tho savages of Behring
Straits, Patagonia and Oce?nica know and re?
spect these em?leme of power and civilization.
In Borne such tram of recollection as thia did
our German friends indulge about A. D. 1818,
and forthwith laid tbe foundation or a navy
and the keels of several men-of-war. But,
wben tho excitement had subsided, and con?
stitutional freedom had buen got well in hand
by kingly rnlets, the national navy was btoken
up and its vessels mid at auction. This was
in 1852. Then Prussia immediately began a
navy on ber own account, which, growing little
by Utile, was something worth while handing
over to the New German Confederation when it
came into existence, tor the commenccroi-nt of
a national navy.

screw vessels three cuirasse:! frigates, two cui

North Germany has a seafaring population of
seventy-eight thousand. Still, many things
were wanting, if a German man-of-war had
to be put iu dry dock, it was necessary to send
her to England or Sweden. Then, too, there
was ns military poit on the Baltic, ThiB de?
ficiency was thought of ab far back os 1854.
when Prussia pui chased tor five bund ed thou?
sand tholers a strm of land on the western
shores of tho Jade Bay, iu the Grand Duchy of
Though d?p and sheltered from winds, the
bay is yet too large and a little too wide at its
entrance-three miles-to make a suitable har?
bor. What, therefore, nature had not supplied,
had to be dene by the hand of man. Immense
excavations were undertaken, proceeding from
the shore a considerable distance inland, and
blanching eut in different directions. The work
was of the most difficult kind, lt is a low, un?
inhabited coast, liable to be unindated by the
sprint: tides. The soil, consisting of loose, shitt?
ing sand, fell in wherever touched by tbe spade.
There was no ari u kable water to be hid for miles
and malaria prevailed to such an extent that
sometimes one-fourth of the workmen were laid
up with it. The first thin? to be done w ts to
raise dams to protect the site of the future har?
bor from the encroachments of the sea. Then
fresh water had to be obtained by boring arte?
sian wells nine hundred feet deep. At length
man triumphed over nature. Mow. that tue
?hole is completed, with tba exception of a few
details, it presents to view fire separate har?
bors, with canals, sluices to reg?late the tide,
and su array of dry-docks for ordinary and
iron-clad vessel". As you approach by ship,
you first find yourself in an artificial basin,
Hanked by immense granito moles, ree pee ti ve
Sfour thousand and nine thousand six hun
.ed feet long. The next nasio or outer harbor
is six hundred feet long and four hundred wide;
the second sluice, immediately behind, a? long
and as wide as the first. Then there follows a
canal three thousand six hundred feet long,
varying m widtb from two hundred and sixty
to one hundred and eighty feet, and having
about half way another harbor for dredging
steamers and similar craft. This leads to the
port par excellence, consisting of a basin 1200
feet long and 750 ?ride, with a smaller special
basin for boats to the right. At the baok of
the principal harbor there are two dry docks,
each 440 feet long and 84 wide; a third dry
dook 880 feet long, two ship yards for the con?
struction of iron-cased frigates of the largest
sise, a dock yard, an arsenal, a number of
steam engines, and all the other paraphernalia
of a naval establishment. AB to depth, the
Jade, when the tide is out, is ati;l 26 feet deep;
the sluices at high tide are 27 feet; at low tide
15 feet deep; the docks and principal harbors
aro 29 feet.
Such an achievement as this was worthy a
grander celebration than took place io honor
of its inaugniatiou last week. The King was
Cresent, and with his escort took firemen on
is way, where be had a brilliant and enthu?
siastic reception. Then going to Jade by a
newrailway. the inauguration took place. The
