-The latest adrices from Cuba, by mall, are
to the 28th ultimo. The Spaularils still con?
tinue tb perpetrate acts of cruelty upon per?
sons supposed to be In sympathy with the j
Coban cause. A number of families were re?
cently arrested by the soldiers a short dis?
tance from Nun vitas. The men and boys sue- \
ceeded in escaping, but the women and small
children suffered much from their captors,
who respect neither age nor sex. The prison?
ers' clothes and jewelry were all stolen, and
they were otherwise treated In a most cruel
manner. They were forced to march with
the column six daysA This Was done with the
view of Inducing the fathers, husbands and
brothers of the prisoners to reveal them?
selves on the line of march. Had they
done so they would have been killed.
The old ladies who were thus compelled -to
tramp suffered terribly on the march. On thc
23d the Spaniards shot six men near the pow?
der fort. After committing this barbarous act
they cut the heads from the dead bodies and
nailed them on trees in the vicinity. It was
rumored that an American engineer had been
shot for being found on the plantation of Mon
tejo, and Dr. Silva and wife had also been kill?
ed for harboring a Cuban patriot. The most
encouraging reports are given, however, of
the Insurgent cause; arms arc all that is want?
ed; these once supplied, the Cubans will give
a good account of themselves. There are
thousands of people not only ready but anxious
to take them up.
-Probably the most Imposing Masonic cele?
bration ever held in this country occurred in
New York on Wednesday, the occasion being
the laying of the corner-stone of the Masonic
Temple to be erected on the northeast corner
cf Sixth avenue and Twenty-third street. There
were no banners,uags, or gaudy uniforms in the
procession, all the members wearing the usual
tjlack silk hat, black clothes, white gloves, and
white aprons tied under the coats. The offi?
cers wore tbti jewels of thelrrank. The column
was in ten divisions, composed of nearly 160
lodges, and numbering about 25,000 men in the
ranks. Over the entire line of march the .side?
walks were crowded by well-dressed citizens,
Interested in the grand display. After all thc
lodges had arrived near the site of the Temple,
?ad aU were on the platform who. were entitled
to tha^rivilege, prayer was offered by the
Grand Chaplain, and after an anthem, the
Deputy Grand Master introduced the Grand
Master to the assembled members ot the craft.
When all was ready the ceremonies were com?
menced by the delivery of the invocation by
the Grand Chaplain, after which a number of
coins and medals were deposited in the hollow
of the stone. The corner-stone was then
lowered In its place during the singing of the
anthem "Ere this vast world was made." Af?
ter an Inspection by the respective officers, it
was announced that the work had been well
done and that "the craftsmen had performed
their duty." The customary ceremony of spread?
ing the cement, scattering oom on the stone,
Ac, &c, then took place, after which the
Grand Marshal made thc usual proclamation.
Rev. E. S. Porter then delivered the oration,
when tho whole of the craft assembled, led by
the united choirs and accompanied by tim
bands, sang the Anthem of Praise, to the tune
of "Old Hundred." At the conclusion, the
Grand Chaplain pronounced the benediction,
after which the several lodges were dismissed
and returned to their various lodge-rooms.
The Temple will be built of light-gray granite,
will front one hundred and forty-four feet on
West Twenty-third street, ninety-nine feet on
Sixth avenue, and will be five stories high,
the Mansard roof covering the fronts of the
flab story. The estimated cost of the Temple
is $1,000,000. A grand banquet was given in
the evening at the Astor House.
The Death of William Gilmore Simms.
South Carolina has Io3t a great man-one
who earned a just distinction in every walk
of literary life, who never faltered in his de?
votion to the land which gave him birth ;
whose pious care and masterly genius made of
the past history of the South a living, breath?
ing reality; who caused the manners and
customs, the men and the women, "of the
"good old times," to dwell with us again in
the melodies of his verse and the romantic
splendors of his prose.
William Gilmore Simms, poet, historian
and novelist, the veteran head of South
Carolina literature, died in this city on Sat?
urday last. '
To him the State and the whole South owe
a debt of gratitude that cannot soon be paid.
At least let him live in his works, and in the
kind thoughts and grateful remembrance ot
the whole Southern people.
The Death or Charles Dickens.
Charles Dickens is dead; but the children
of his brain-the cunning creations of a fer?
tile imagination-will live as long as the
English language is spoken among the na?
tions of the earth.
It matters little whether Charles Dickens
was inspired by that genius-that divine
afflatus-which is more easy to name than
to .define; whether his works were estheti?
cally perfect; whether plot was compact and
new; whether taste was faultless and the
diction beyond compare.
Charles Dickens is known upon the broad
fo.ee of the universe. Wherever the Saxon
has hewed his way, in the virgin forests of
the West, as in the centre of European civili?
zation, the name of -Dickens is a familiar
word, and his works are fondly loved. The
thronging millions are his stronghold. Crit?
ics may say, if they will, that Dickens is
praised too loudly and Thackeray not enough,
but Dickens has a thousand worshippers for
every*"'polished ten who keenly relish the
/1"<nfV gf>>|Ti nf Tti'lpl*"1"'" Vnnf"?Tin omi
Dobbin, and Becky and the rest, will not
soon t>e forgotten; but Nell and Paul Dom?
bey, Dora and Dot, Pickwick and Micawber,
Oliver and David, and a host of others have
become living, breathing types of our com?
mon humanity. They are no abstractions.
Ail of us know them in the flesh, or at least
we think so.
Nor can it be said that Dickens had no
high purpose in what he wrote. The man's
heart was in his work. "What good he
wrought-more than a myriad preachers
could accomplish-can be realized by til ose
only who are familiar with the sores a ii d
ulcers of modern English life.
And long before his death, Dickens was
already immortal. "With the Bible, and
Shakespeare. Dickens has entered into the
soul of the English tongue. From Shakes?
peare and Dickons are drawn a thousand
tropes and metaphors; from them come burn?
ing fancies and queer conceit?, whose source
is all forgotten; and though the very name
of Dickens were lost, his joyous thoughts, pre?
served in the umber of the words we speak,
would still set their seal upon the minds of
midions, still touch thc heart and quicken
the pulse, bringing the happy smile to the
smooth face of youth and the wrinkled cheek
A Notahle Gathering.
Whatever the resulto! its deliberations, the
assembling of the Reform Convention will be
a memorable event in the political history o f
the State. It may be taken as an active ex?
pression of the general conviction that the
time has come when we must put away all
of the past that is unworthy of remembrance ;
when wu must direct the public mind, in
earnest, lo the erection or a new political
fabric, whose corner-stone shall be tho is
o[*.he present, rather than the shadowy
might have been. The very fact that the
convention will be held, is a subject of con?
gratulation. It has been attacked in front
und rear. The supporters of the Ring-the
opeu aud concealed-have thrown cold water
upon the movement from the very beginning.
The same thing has been done by the "so?
cial equality," shriekers, who declare that
there is ouly one way of saving the State, and
that ?3 by not doing anythiug that Reform?
ers or Republicans desire to have done. The
Scott party, also, have tilted at the conven?
tion. But their bullying and entreating are
vain. Neither their money nor their blarney
did them any good, or the convention any
harm. Here and there an old leader of the
white people is said to have made a secret
bargain with the State officials. This paid
well. But bla3t and counter-blast could not
hold the people bock. They made up their
minds that they would have the convention,
antTit meets, accordingly, in Columbia ou
the day after to-morrow. That convention
will represent seven-eights of the white peo?
ple of the State, and a powerful minority
of the colored voters.
The object or the convention is thc secur?
ing of united opposition to the corrupt ex.
truvagance of the Scott Ring; and so unsel?
fish is the movement that we are not aware
that any delegation is pledged to any par?
ticular man or any particular measure.
What is demanded is a full and free discus?
sion of the condition of the State, and of the
best way to obtain an honest and economi?
cal government This seems to be the main
purpose of every delegate. The low country,
for instance, meets the up-country, not to
bicker and quarrel, or to fight for political
preferment, but to see what the hardy moun?
taineers propose for the welfare of the State.
There is on all sides a manifest wish that we
may arrive at a harmonious decision, so that
all South Carolina, with the same weapons,
may enlist in the rauks of Reform.
And, indeed, there is little room for differ?
ences of opinion. The convention recog?
nizes, by the terms of its call, the equal,
civil and political rights of all citizens of the
State.- This knocks out the "patent in?
nards" of tlie Radical party. Their post of |
vantage is lost. Again, the convention, by
the terms of its call, will consider the means
of securing an honest, abie and economical
government, which shall protect the rights
of labor, encourage the influx of capital, and
represent with fidelity all classes of the peo?
ple. Thi3 is tlie kind of government that
we have not and cannot have, while Scott is
the minion of the honr; but it is the govern?
ment that both workingman and capitalist
must have, if they would rise from the ashes
Upon the question of nominating candi?
dates for Governor and Lieutenant-Governor
against the Radical nominees, there will be,
in the beginning, some difference of opinion.
But when it is understood, as it will be, that
a nomination will not consolidate Radical?
ism more than it is consolidated already
tbRt it is useless to wait for a "bolt"-that'
to make no nomination is to throw up th?
sponge, and give up the political ghost-that
uo bargain can be made with a Riog which
never, save by accident, fails to break its
word-that, without a nomination, the peo?
ple will give up hope and try to find out
whether the devil is as black as he is paint?
ed-that Scott can be beat if we make up
our mind3 to beat him; wo cannot'doubt that
the nominations will be made. There may
be some better plan, although we t?ink not;
but unless some new light be thrown
upon the subject, it is clear enoogh to us
that a nomination is the only chance of safe?
ty for the people. An opposition candi?
date of the right stamp, with the hearty help
of the white voters,, can be elected. Governor
of South Carolina.
The conditions- are' few aud clear: 1. A
strong candidate, unobjectionable to the
masses, ready to work from morn to night
until election day is over. 2. The co-opera?
tion of the whites-without which no candi?
date, were he an angel, can compass a victory.
Surely some one can be found who posses?
ses the first named qualification; surely the
whites and the blacks eau bo aroused to their
common danger, and the necessity of unit?
ing to save them and tlie State from ruin.
Upon the answer or the convention to these
questions, depends the whole fortune of
South Carolina, Unless we make tlie trial
we cannot secure a better government, and
unless a better government be had, and that
quickly, the people and the State are lost.

Radicals at Lancaster Courthouse have de?

"they do not care a- for the negroes.'"
They said they were "willing to submit to all

umilL imaraoc nntil fling hflil mailfiall the

the Ring, in this State, will be gone for?
