Taeaday Morning. Hov. 10. 1868.
Thc Island of Cuba.
We ere getting interesting newe
from the "Ever-Faithful" island of
Cuba. A revolutionary Junta, it
seems, have sprung into existenoe
there, in imitation of that which as?
sumed control of the mother coun?
try, Spain, and revolutionized tho
government. The manifesto of this
Junta sets forth the grievances of tho
islanders, repudiates the title of
"Ever-Faithful," and proposes a
genoral programme looking to a Re?
public This programme includes
universal suffrage, free trade, and the
abolition of slavery, together with a
number of similar reforms. Tho
latest intelligence by telegraph tells
of the prostration of business upon
the island, distrust and alarm among
tho people, insurrection by armed
bodies of men, collisions with Spa?
nish troops, and some arrests of lead?
ing insurgents.
From Madrid, tho announcement
reached us somo days since that Gen.
Dulce has been appointed Captain
Gcneral of Cuba to succeed Gen.
Lersundi, tho latter being an adhe?
rent of the banished Isabella. Tho
departure of Gen. Dulce from Spain
hos, however, been delayed by reason
of his illness; and in the meanwhile
Gen. Liersandi continues to follow
the example of his royal mistress in
treating the Ouban3 with an austerity
which only inflames their resentment.
The chances are, that unloss inter?
position soon arrives from Spain,
the insurgents will possess themselves
of tho island and declare it indepen?
dent. There are only 10,000 Spanish
troops upon the island, and the in?
surgents number 6,000 and are con?
stantly augmenting; They embody
both Cubans, or Creoles, and Spa?
niards, and are enthusiastic and ag?
gressive.
At any other period in the history
of thc United States this condition
of affairs in Cuba would be hailed
with profound satisfaction, as afford?
ing an opportunity for annexation.
Such an extremity has always been
anticipated as tho time 'for such a
movement, and the acquisition of
Cuba bas always been considered de?
sirable in all parts of the Union, so
called. But now we hear little or
nothing about annexation, which is
possibly owing to our election excite?
ments, and possibly to a feeling in
thc public mind that the Government
already has enough of inflammable
material under its dominion without
adding tho hot-blooded Cubans. The
time may come, however, when at?
tention will turn to the project nguiu,
and unless we have another revolu?
tion amoug ourselves, the present
decade may Bee the island of Cuba
included among the stars upon tho
"flagof the Union."
As oue of the United States, Cuba
would be a valuable addition to our
territory, and her importance in
point of geographical position can
hardly be over-rated. Her produc?
tions also would be of inestimable
advantage to our home commerce, to
say nothing ol their value for foreign
trade. The Richmond Enquirer and
Examiner has compiled some valua?
ble statistics relutive to this idea,
but the best comment upon her
value, however, is found in the fact
that ?ho has boen paying an anuna!
income to the Spanish Government
of $00,000,000 in gold, which is equal
to one-half thc interest on the Fede?
ral debt. Thc population of the
island is nearly 1,500,01)0, divided
into various classes. Thu residents
of European descent number nbotll
731,000; domiciled foreigners about
8,000; trausient Spaniards and for?
eigners about ,21,500; Chinese, in?
cluding Coolies still in service abd
Coolies freed, 50,000, and Yucatesc
1,500; making a total of about 812,
000. The negroes number abott!
003,0UO, of whoa about 228.00?
have been manumitted.
Of course the white people, iu
eluding the Creoles, are the mosl
valuable part of the population, bul
tho Spaniards and foreigner*, main
of tlve latter being Americans, form
an important element, and are chiefly
eugagod iu commerce and maunfac
tures. Thc large number of ne
groes who have been emaucipated
are, like too many of their class it
thc South, idle, dissolute and worth
les?. Tiley congregate about tin
cities and towns, and employ thora
reives in all kinda of vice and wick
edness, never doing the least work of
any kind. The majority of the slaves
aro of African birth, and are little
removed from the beasts of the field?
being given to all manner of igno?
rant saper?titio?o und ?e?schism.
They usually sell at $600 to $800 a
head. Their condition is infinitely
worse than was that of the slaves of
the South, for whoso emancipation,
as wo are now told, so many thou?
sands of white Yankees lost their lives I
and so many millions of greenbacks
were created.
The Chinese ure exclusively males
who have been imported as Coolies
during tho last fifteen years, at a cost
of $250 to $350 each. They serve
for a term of years at $4 per month,
and are found and clothed during ]
tho time. When they have served
the term contracted for, they are at
liberty to return to China, but very
few of them ever do it.
With such a population as we have
described, it is hardly to bc supposed
that Cuba eau be added to 4 * the glo?
rious Union" without radical re?
forms in her polity; but the Federal
Government will, doubtless, feel
competent to tho task of her reforma?
tion aud annexation, whenever thero
shall seem to bo a prospect of profit
in the operation.
BOLD INCENDIARY ATTEMPT.-We
learn that au effort was mado by per?
sons unknown, to kum the dwelling
of Mr. John E. Peay, at Longtown,
in Fairfield District. This occurred
on the night of November 4. The |
portico of tho house was fired ? ud in
part burnt. One of the freedmen
on the place discovered the fire, and
the progress of the flames was ar?
rested. We trust that the efforts to
discover tho incendiary will prove
successful.

CHINA AND JAPAN.-Tho Herald has
letters from these remoto portions of
the globe, dated September 1G and
27. A large fire occurred on the 13th
of August, destroying a vast amount
of property and the lives of two wo?
men and seventeen children. Tho
aotion of tho commander of the Bri?
tish gun-boat Bustard, iu bombard?
ing tho town of Choochi, by which
several person were killed, has caused
much excitement. The Italian bark
Providenza had arrived at Hakodadi
with forty-two coolies aboard, no
commander being on her, and evi?
dences in abundance wore found lead?
ing to tho belief, asshe had sailed some
timo before with a cargo of coolies,
that they had mutinied and destroyed
tho crew.
The Tycoon's Government had re?
signed all authority to tho Mikako
and all the adherents or officers under
the Tycoon had been dispensed with.
The foreign legations are now looated
in Yokohama, tho British and French
Ministers having armed forces of their
own troops quartered near them,
while tho American Minister has
only a lame porter, urmed with
bamboo stick. The Japanese author?
ities have intimated their desire to
the foreign ministers to have the
treaty of 18G6 revised, with a view to
the re-adjustment of duties on teas
and silks. The steamship Herman,
on entering Castries Bay, in August
last, burst a boiler, killing three
Chinamen and severely scalding
twelve other persons. Of these, two
were Americans.
SPEECH OE BEAST BUTLER.-Gen.
Butler was greeted by about 3,000 of
his fellow-citizens, ia Lowell, Massa?
chusetts, to whom ho made a briof
speech on th 5th. He hud triumph?
ed, he said, under tho motto: Equal?
ity of all men's rights under the law
by using freedom's great weapon-the
ballot. Ho hailed tho glorious tri?
umph of Republican principles
throughout the land. He believed it
would bring peace and prosperity.
We shall not long have murder after
murder and riot after riot. Look at
New Orleans, from which we have re
I ported 2,500 for Seymour und 270
for Grunt. There was a time, he
remembered, when the people of that
city behaved better. [Applause.]
He felt confident such time would
come one? more. Several Southern
States voted for Seymour, or aro in
doubt, because men's lives were
threatened if thoy attempted to vote.
When Congress meets, as it will in a
short time, it will be our purpose to
find a remedy for this kind of thing,
and if Johnson docs not second our
efforts, though it may bo late in the
day, we will try and pr?vido for him.
[Applause.]
.IMP VUTIATJ S?EEBAOE. '-Despatch?
es in the New York Tribune state that,
in Iowa and Minnesota, the amend?
ments to the Constitutions of those
States, establishing "impartial suf?
frage," have been adopted in the
late election. In Minnesota, accord?
ing to the censas of 1860, there were
bnt 259 negroes, which wonld give
about fifty colored voters. In Iowa,
there were 1,000 negroes, which would
give 214 voters.
MB. KDITOB: Is it consistent foe
Mr. Alexander to expect the colored
men to vote for him, when he, a fow
months ago, discharged several co?
lored hands for voting with the Re?
publican party ? We would refer
him to the fourth chanter ol neeoau,
Timothy, 14th verse:
" Alexander, the coppersmith, did
me [or us] much evil; the Lord re?
ward him according to his works."

Horrible Outrage and Swift Retribu?
tion.
We have the particulars of a horri?
ble outrage committed near Summer?
ville, in Emanuel County, on Tues?
day last.
A young lady, seventeen or eight?
een years old, daughter of a respect?
able citizen of that County, wno is a
pupil in tho Summerville school, was
met in the outskirts of the villuge
while on her woy to school, early
Tuesday morning, by a negro man
named Pearce, who attacked her with
a lightwood knot; striking her on tho
back of the head and felling her to
tho earth. He then attempted to
commit further outrage upon her
person, which she resisted to tho ut?
most of her strength and ability. In
the scufile which ensued, he beat her
severely over the head and face, se?
riously injuring her eyes and iilling
her mouth with sand to prevent her
cries from being heard. From the
effect of this terrible treatment sho
becamo insensible, and the fiend ac?
complished his hellish purpose and
left her apparently dead in the road.
Sometime after she was discovered in
this pitiable condition and taken to
a house near by, when Dr. Bouchelle
being called to see her, administered
to her relief, and sho recovered so far
as to bo able to designate the demon
who had committed thc outrage.
Pursuit was then mado for tho
wretch, and, in a little while, ho was
fouud concealed upon tho premises
of Mrs. Harris, when he was arrested
and taken to Swainsboro and com?
mitted to jail. A largo crowd was
assembled at tho latter place-the
election being held , thero-and great
excitement was produced when tho
facts becamo known. There was,
however, no attempt made to inter?
fere with the criminal, who was safely
lodged in jail.
That night, about ll or 12 o'clock,
a crowd of persons, uumberiug some
forty or fifty, went to the house of
Mr. J. J. Moorsing, tho jailor, and
demanded of him tho jail keys. This
demand he refused to comply with,
when they threatened his life if the
keys were not produced. Under this
alternative, tho keys were presented
to tho party, who immediately pro?
ceeded to the jail, took tho negro out
and, carrying him to a tree just out?
side the town, swung him ti}' to a
limb, in which position he was found
next morning.
We learn that the young lady is
still iu a critical condition, but her
physician thinks sho will recover.
Thero was great excitement in the
County for a day or two, but it has
passed off and all is quiet thero now.
The negroes in the vicinity all ex?
press their approbation of tho sudden
and awful punishment inflicted upon
Pearce, and good feeling prevails be?
tween the races.-Augusta Chronicle.
Four murders are reported as hav?
ing been committed in Kentucky last
week. On Wednesday night, Wm.
Johnson, a resident of Jessamine
County, while on his way home, was
shot dead by a concealed assassin.
On Thursday night, Miss Hill,
yonng school teacher at Bryantsvilh
was shot and instantly killed by a
young man named Grimes, a suitor
whom she had rejected. On the same
night, two horse-thieves confined in
jail at Nicholasvillo, woro taken from
jail by "regulators" and hanged. One
of them had served a term in the
penitentiary for previous offences.
FntE. -About 12 o'clock yesterday
fire was discovered in a houso located
on Keneke's farm, near tho forks of
the road. The building was used,
the lower story as a church, by some
colored people, and tho upper story
as a store-honse for grain, and was
filled at time of tho firo with corn and
fodder. The houso and its contents
wero entirely consumed. The origin
of the fire was not known.

Minnesota has just been haviug its
customary Iudian summer storm. A
St. Paul paper says that for thirty
hours it rained, thundered, lightened,
and blew, without the slightest inter?
mission, and then, as a slight varia?
tion, it snowed, "blowed," "lighten?
ed," and ruined, with occasionally a
growling report from the upper re?
gions. Land slides occurred upon
some of the railroads.
A RADICAL SHOT.-On Sunday
night last, Harry McDaniel, negro
Representative, had his cabin fired
upon by some unknown party, who
hailed and was refused entrance.
Harry received a wound in the shoul?
der, which is slight and not regarded
dangerous. These are the facts as

Tt?* Result And th? Future.
Now that the Presidential campaign
is closed, there is one platform, and
but one, on which all parties and all
sections may, and must unite, if we
are to .regain our former prosperity
and happiness, and that is the plat?
form. ?ot of a party, nor of a sec?
tion, but of the whole country, one
and indivisible. In order to insure
this unity there must be a restoration
of mutual confidenne, if not of mu?
tual affection, and to tbis end tho
dead past must be buried and for?
given, even if it cannot bo forgotten.
We must take a new point of depar?
ture, and, dismissing from our con?
templation the things which aro
behind, press forward in the labors
and to the rewards of a new era of
development and progress. Mr.
John Quincy Adams has declared his
belief that tho heart-felt desire of tho
great bulk of the Northern people is
to treat the South with kindness and
generosity, and tho opportunity io
now ottered in Gen. Grant's election
to give strong and practical expres?
sion to that desire. Tho extent of
tho confidence manifested iu Gen.
Grant by tho large majority he lins
received ought to add to his inde?
pendence and efficiency in carrying
out liberal and patriotic sentimeutB.
The apprehensions of the party
which sustaiucd him of their ability
to carry a sufficient number of States
in tho North to?iusure their success,
aud their consequent dread of the
revival of civil convulsions, which led
to the adopting of a coersive policy
in tho South, with all its rigors and
sufferings, to retniu their political
ascendancy, must be so completely
dissipated by the result of tho hilo
elections, that thej* can now afford to
treat tho South with clemency and
magnanimity. On the other hand,
tho South, which has beeu ever ready
and anxious to meet overtures of real
reconciliation moro than half way,
eau bo more easily won by a spirit of
conciliation and liberality than by
compulsion aud nieuace. It eau
adapt itself to all thc political re?
quirements of a new era, if only they
aro dictated in an equitable and fra?
ternal spirit, aud leave unshackled
its energies for material recuperation
and advancement. Tho solution of
all difficulties is not so much in any
particular legislative policy as in the
spirit which animates legislation, and
if this shall be honestly patriotic and
brotherly, if the words of Gen.
Grant, "let us have peace," shall in?
dicate tho abandonment of a vindic?
tive policy, tho future regeneration
and salvation of the country will be
put beyoud nil doubt. Any other
course, whilo it may gratify the pas?
sions of unappeasable revenge
against the South, will be purchased
nt the indefinito detriment and cost
of all those material interests which
are of supremo concern to all sec?
tions. Forbearance, moderation and
patience should bo the controlling
spntimeut of all sections, and then
iui- threat Republic, the refuge of the
oppressed of all nations, and the
hope of all the friends of liberty
throughout the world, will emerge
from its tribulations purified and
strengthened by tho fiery ordeal
through which it has passed.

Freemasonry In the East.
Robert Morris, Esq., delivered a
leoture last evening, at the Cooper
Instituto, on the subject of Freema?
sonry in By ria and Palestine. He
said that he bad been sent to the
East; by the Masons of this country,
for four objects: 1st. To examine
into the Freemasonry of the Eastern
nations; 2d. To obtain information
of the orders kindred to the Masons,
such ns the Knights of St. John ; 3d.
To visit the places renowned in the
traditions of Masonry-Tyre, Jeru?
salem and others; 4th. To make col?
lections of specimens, relics, kc.
His remarks on these topics were
very interesting, not only to Masons,
but to the general public. At Smyrna
ho found eight Masonic Lodges,
which included among their mem?
bers tho foreign consuls of most of
the nations not Roman Catholic and
nenrly all the Turkish dignitaries.
At Ephesus ho attended n Masonic
pic-nic. At Rey rout he found thc
only lodge in Palestine. Among its
members is tho Pasha of all the ter?
ritory from AS?A Minor to Egypt.
Mr. Morris found the Pasha a very
gentlemanly, intelligent and friendly
man, willing to givu him the fullest aid
in the prosecution of his enterprise.
At Damascus he found sixteen Ma
sons,among them the renowned Adel
el-Kadir, formerly Sultan of the
Arab race of North Africa, where he
carried on a most destructive war
with tho French for three years. Mr.
Morris was most kindly received by
this fiery old warrior, who gave bim
the symbolical kisses on the right
and left cheeks. Throughout Syria
and Palestine there is au intense pre?
judice among the lower classes against
Freemasonry, but the high officers of
the Turkish Government, and the
few educated aud intelligent men
which are to be found there, ure well
disposed toward the Order. No?
where in the world, Mr. Morris says,
is there such attachment to Freema?
sonry as among tho Mohammedans.
In thc famous city of Tyre, tho seat
of King Hiram, he could not find,
after three days' search, a single Ma?
son; in Gebnl, tho ancient seat of all
learning, not a single person who
could read. Ancient traces of tho
Order were numerous. On the key?
stone of an arch under Solomon's
Temple, the masonic compass is
found deeply cut in stone. Mr. Mor?
ris traced the analogy between the
customs of the East and those of the
modern Masons. Charity was the
distinguished characteristic of the
Eastern Masons. He had left the
country deeply prejudiced against
the Mohammedans, and had returned
feeling that in many respects they
could teach us Christiaus something.
He spoke very highly of the Ameri?
can missionaries on tho Syrian coast.
