CUBA.- Lottere bave . been1 reoeiveti
from the Cuban expedition which left
New York about a month ng'o and landed
in the Bay of Nipo, Cuba. . There is said
to havo been a large steamer, and a
smaller steamer, the Perot, engaged in
thia enterprise. Th? latter, being of
light draught, was enabled to make tripe
to the landing place in tho bay, trans?
ferring from the large vessel the arms,
ammunition, artillery and the-whole ex?
peditionary force to the.' shore. The
larger vessel is claimed to have been
the Arago, which sailed from New York
on the 4th of May, having, as was al?
leged, nearly 1,000 armed men on board,
1,000 stand of arms, and 60,000 rounds
of ammunition. The oorrespondence of
the Tribune and New York kundery ive irs
from the Bay of Nipe, May 12, give in?
teresting sketches of the arrival and
landing of the expedition and of the
military operations heretofore reported
by telegraph, and which had resulted at
the date of the letters in the defeat of
a Spanish force which had attacked the
.expedition. The .fillibasters, many of
them said to be ex-soldiers of the North
and South, were under the leadership of
General Thomas Jordan, chief of staff to
General Beauregard in the late war, and
whose engagements with the Junta in
New York are reported as making him
second in command to the former gene
ral-iu-cbief, now President C?spedes.
Tho Her db I announces that Pera has re?
cognized the Cuban patriots as belli?
gerents, which it thinks solves the mys?
tery of the. two Peruvian i ron-clad s now
hovering in the neighborhood of Ha?
vana. It thinks the chance for a peace
con fer en co proposed by the United
States, and agreed upon by Spain, Pern,
Chili and Ecuador, may be considered as
dismissed, and that the cause of the
Cabens is brightening.

Southern securities were sympathetic
for the general list, with the fluctuations
of the stock market, but were weak and

INOBNDIARISI? AND M-DER.-We re?
gret to learn that, some i.rae lust week,
a murder waa committed in the settle?
ment known as Salubrity, iu Pickens
County, which exceeds in fiendishness
and cowardice anything we ever heard
of. Tho barn and stables of a Mr. Wil?
lard was discovered to bo on fire at a
late hour ut night, when he and n man
by tho name of Rampey husteued to the
soene of conflagration, to arrest, if pos?
sible, tho devouring flames. Ou roach?
ing tho spot, it was found that the firo
had made such headway that it could not
be stopped, and Willard and Rampey
rushed in the stables to rescue the horses
and other stock, and while thus engaged,
were fired upon by unknown persons
without. Mr. Willard wus struck in the
neck by a ball, which resulted in bia
death in a few minutes. Rampey was
struck on the leg, causing a painful
wound. We aro not informed of any
clue as to who Hip perpetrators were.

BE-IBSUE OF THACKER AT'S NOV EM.
Mesar?. Harper & Brothers have pr??
sent?e} ns, through Messrs. Duffie &
Chapman, with a copy of Thackeray's
well-known and universally-ad m i red
novel without a hero-"Vanity Fair,"
with the author's own illustrations; com?
plete in ono volume; price fifty cents.
The publishers state that Thackeray's
other novels will bo issued immediately,
at correspon dingly low prices.
Dr. Jackson, of tho Plain street drug
store, presents a fearful lookiug picture
to tho publio this morning-a representa?
tion of a death's head. But it is hoped
timid people will not become alarmed
before perusing the accompanying para?
graph, which imparts tho gratifying in?
formation that, through the inventive
powers of a Green Mountain firm, flies
eau bo disposed of suddenly and sum?
marily. Dr. J. has presented us with
several sheets of tho prepared paper, and
in a day or two, it is confidently expected,
a fly will be regarded as great a curiosity
in the PHOENIX office as one of Unele
Sam's mint drops would be.
"Uneasy is the head which wears a
crown!" The new postmaster, it is re?
ported, finds that his ways are not ex?
actly those of "pleasantness," aud his
paths not those of "pence." There aro
rumors of trouble in the post office
camp, and its officials find in the distri?
bution of their matter n task more diffi?
cult than was the cleansing of the
"Augean stable." From the troubled
waters of the post office department
comes a wail, "Help me, Cassius, or I
sink." It ia whispered that the old
officials have been conjured by tho new
chief of the department to lend their
charitable aid to work order out of
chaos, and to rescue from "that bourne
from which no traveler returns" tho mat?
ter which was shipped for a very differ?
ent port. Mails accumulate upon the
shelves; the wildest confusion exists in
tho construction of the alphabet-Brown
gets the letters which were designed for
Smith, and Robinson is the happy reci?
pient of newspapers which wero blindly
confided to the mail for the reading of
Jones. The murdered mails mako a
solemn and tangible protest against the
department, as the spectral ghost of
"Banqno" "shook his gory locks" at
"Macbeth." There is no doubt that an?
archy and disorder in the post office de?
partment have usurped tho place of
regularity and system. It could hardly
be otherwise, when method and disci?
pline are supplanted by inexperience and
ignorance. It would have been infinitely
better, not only for the convenience and
interest of the community, but for the
comfort and protection of the new post?
master, had he retained the manager
and corps of clerks who administered
the postal affairs in the city of Colum?
bia nnder his predecessor. As it now
stands-if our information be correct
with but one subordinate competent by
education and clerkly training to dis?
charge the duties of tho office, ano
granting to him every qualification of
office merit and despatch in business,
il is clearly patent that an office con?
ducted by tho ono efficient clerk and t)
corps of colleagues deficient in capacity
for the posts which they liavo so reck?
lessly assumed, can never bo otherwise
than a scene of chaos, and a source o:
enormous discomfort and serious detri
ment to tho general welfare.
So keen aro the principles of pol?tica
extermination with tho Republicans-sc
vivid tho instincts of party, and so deep
ly rooted the disposition to reform-tba
in nearly, if not all, the instances of ap
pointment to office of n member of th?
radical persuasion to a position, tho of
li ci al axe falls on tho devoted neck o
those professing Democratic faith, am
connected with such office. Wo con
fess, in this particular instance, to find
ing a "balm in Gilead," to a keen enjoy
ment in seeing tho "engineer hoisted In
his own petard;" but at the same time, wi
wonld gladly hail a change in the poa
department which would institute a nov
order of things; which would "rendel
unto Ciesar the things which are Caesar's;'
or, better still, restore -thom to their ole
and original status. It is scarcely aski ri j
too much, where tho interest is so com
mon and the nature so vital-wher
every department of indnstry is so close!;
related-to beg that the new postmaste
will re-instate the former manager, am
re-engage some of the experience*
olerks; so that we may receive our mail
without interruption, safely delivered a
the destination for which they wer
plainly and directly forwarded.

TERRIBLE STORM AND DESTRUCTION OF
PROPERTY.-A correspondent in New?
berry informs us that a terrible rain and
wind storm occurred there on Wednes?
day afternoon, during which several
trees were blown down and houses un?
roofed. The spire of the Lutheran
Church was struck by lightning, and
scattered ia every direotion; in fact, the
whole front of the church beneath the
steeple is a mass of ruins. The building
is totally unfit for use at present, and
will require extensive repairs. This
storm is the most severe one which has

cannot but think the action adopted pru?

will yet do its good work to that portion
of our fellow-citizens who have the
laudable desire to provide themselves
