THE SUCCESS OF SPAIN IN GOBA
DEEMED HOPELESS IN ENGLAND.-The
London Times, of December 23, says:
is-not difilcult to see tho main
canse of the financial embarrassment in
Spain. The Spaniards cannot afford to
pay their oredUors, or And themselves
compelled to reduce their dividends by
heavy per centage, simply because all
their resources are exhausted in a vain
attempt to aohieve the subjugation of
Coba. A jealous sense of honor stands
in the way of common honesty. High
national aspirations are pleaded in ex?
tenuation o' financial delinquencies.
The resolution never to part with an
inch of colonial territory is tho one point
on which all political parties in Spain
agree-or dare not express disagreement.
The strife is as to who shall talk biggest
on the subject The cry is 'Cuba muRt
not be lostl' * * * The September
revolution of 18G8 was to usher in
freedom both for Spain and her de?
pendencies. But by 'freedom' the Spa?
niards professed to understand simply
better government. The Cubans stood
np for self-government, and a civil war
j ensued, in which the Spaniards have
snorilloed from 75,000 to 30,000 of their
best troops, maintaining beside from
40,000 to 50.000 volunteers ont of the

SHO?TINO At b'ttAY.-A couploof weeks
ago, an altercation arose between St.
Clair Locklier, a Scuffletown mulatto,
and Handy Platt, negro, formerly be?
longing to Mr. James Roberts. Lock?
lier got his gnn and shot Platt in the
knee. The wounded man had no surgi?
cal attendance until tho horrible odor of
the mutilated limb admonished the poor
wretches that something must be done at
once, otherwise they would be driven
ont of the house hy .the stenoh. Doc?
tora Walter and Monroe were summon?
ed, and the limb was amputated above
the knee. The deed was a most wanton
one, there being, as we hear, little or no
provocation. It was done, also, by one
of those Robeson County rascals-one of
the far-famed Sonflletown gang, who
came here from Cumberland County
Nothing has boen done about it iu any

DEATH OP A PBOMINENT COLORED MAN.
At half-past 6 o'clook, last evening,
while the members of Conncil were
assembling for a special meeting, the sad
news of the death of Alderman Elias
Carden, which had j net ccourred, was
received. He had been siok for about
ten days with a disease contracted from
his horse, which he had been attending
for glanders. At tho time of his death
he was in the fifty-sixth year of his age.
For more than a third oi his nie he con?
ducted the business of a butcher in the
lower market, to the general satisfaction
of the niauy citizens who dealt with him.
In bis capacity of a Councilman he was
never obtrusive, yet shrinking from
nothing thut he esteemed bi J duty, and
only advancing his views when they
were well fixed upon tho subject, and
with becoming dignity and decorum.
In his death his race has lost a repre?
sentative, whoso life was an illustration
of what sobriety, integrity and industry
can do. Ho goes to his grave respected
by all olassos, and leaving a large family,
embracing ton well reared children, to
mourn thoir loss. - Charleston Courier.
Fins AND PROBABLY FATAL SHOOTING.
Between 1 nnd 2 o'clock, Monday morn-,

miscellaneous stock, value unknown, and
insnred for $4,500, was totally destroyed.
The flames extended to the building re?
cently erected by Schoabe & Co., at a
cost of $2,200, and containing an assort?
ed stock, valued at $7,000, on which
there was an insnrauce of $5,000. Tho
building was consumed and. the stock
partially saved. During the excitement
a colored man, named James Hamilton,
was shot in tho abdomen by George

Tus LAWS OF DOMESTIC STORMS
HOUSEHOLD HLNTS.-There are periods
iii life, say's the Pall Mall Gazelle, when
blood relations seem born to harass and
bewilder each otber. Where is the son
who, on arriving at age, has not gone in
the very opposite direction to his father's
wishes, either with regard to calling,
opinions or marriages? Where ?B the
father who has not waked np some morn?
ing to the conviction that, with the best
intentions in the world, the parental re?
lation is a failure? If he is a philoso?
pher, he will submit to tho inevitable
with a good grace, and argue thus: "Yes,
it was all very well to dream, when my
son lay in his cradle, how happy I should
be if ho ever grew to bo i man. To
have him as a friend, companion and ad?
viser. Ah! life would indeed be worth
having. But how differently things turn
out to what ono expects 1 He bas taken
np with hateful opinions on politics, re?
ligion and everything else worth think?
ing about. He is determined to marry
an odious woman. He criticises and dis?
trusts my most serious convictions. We
shall always maintain affectionate rela?
tions, but, as to friendship, that is quito
If, on the other hand, he is dull-bead?
ed and irou-willed, the trausieut cold?
ness is sure to lead to an irrevocable
separation. On which, indeed, of the
domestic relations does not disenchant?
ment, nt some time or other, wait?
Tho laws of domestic storms are eim
glo enough when studied practically,
ome unfortunate men and women spend
their lives in devising how this or that
squall ia to be avoided. Like tho Duke's
daughter, in Mr. Disraeli's amusing
novel, who, if her husband cried for the
moon, promised it to him immediately,'
they are always ready to say black is
white for the sake of being agreeable.
At night, if they say their prayers at all,
they can't help wishing that they might,
with propriety, include a thanksgiving
for having kept the dreaded objoot of
their affections in good temper for a day.
But the sort of people who subject them?
selves to such a life of shifts, shams and
petty little secrets, kuow nothing of tho
tragedy of a great storm. They get bat?
tered about, and are always in dirty wea?
ther, but they do not go wholly to pieces.
A MODEL LIGHT.-A French chemist
hos discovered a light BB superior to gas
as gas was superior to its predecessor,
oil. An opportunity will soon be af?
forded of beholding this beautiful, clear
and healthy light, as the officials of the
Crystal Palace Company have laid pipes,
placed gasometers in position, and in
tho course of a few days will illuminate
their crystal fountains and rare works of
art with the now ox-hydric light, and in
order that the public may have ocular
demonstration of its vast superiority
over gos, the lights will alternate, and
then the dall yellow haze of the flicker?
ing gas-lamp will become doubly BO in
the steady, bright light emanating from
the other, which ?B SO intense that it
causes the flame of gas to cast a shadow
itself on the wall it is intended to illu?
minate. This new light can be obtained
at a mach lower rate than gas, and it is
not only brilliant and clear, bat healthy. ,
Above the issue aperture in the ordinary
gas-lamp, when lighted, there is a dark
space, surrounded by the flame, with
sparkling atoms floating upwards, many
of whioh escape unconsumed and pol?
lute the surrounding air, maoh to the
injury of eyes and lungs, while others
that, enter the flame, in passing through
it, are only partially consumed, and in
the shape of smoke or dost, esoape into
the surrounding atmosphere, to the de?
triment of pictures, oeilings, or gilt
frames, &o. Nothing of all thia occurs
with the now light.
The question of a submuriue tunnel
undor tho Dover Straits, connecting tho
coasts of England and France, has been
long discussed, but lately a moro feasi?
ble plan has been broached. This is the
establishment of a uteam ferry ou a
grand seule, and it is said that both Go?
vernments look with favor on tho pro?
ject. The boats wilt run from Dover to
a point near Calais, and will transport
whole trains of cara boldly from tho ono
port to the other. Of course, to accom?
plish this they must be of mammoth
proportions and of prodigious strength.
These ferry-boats are to bo 450 feet long,
with 50 feet beam, and 32 feet depth of
bold. The draught is to be 13% feet,
loaded; the diameter of the paddle
wheels 50 feet, the displacement 4,000
tone, and tho engines of 7,000 horse?
power. Tho estimated speed is an ave?
rage of eigbteon knots an hour, taking
for the passngo, iu fair weather, seventy
minutes, aud in foul, twenty more. Six
passages a day are to be made. If this
project bo conan rn mated, and there is
strong probability that it will, the tra?
veler may go to sleep in the night coach
at London and wake np the next morn?
ing in Paris-never having beon dis?
turbed in the meanwhile.
DEMOCRATIC ABSENTEES.-All the re
oont vutes in tho House of Representa?
tives at Washington reveal that at least
twenty-five Democratic members are ha?
bitually absent. As the Republican ma?
jority is not over thirty-und in tboso
disintegrating times tbore are always a
dozen or n score of malcontents who do
not vote with their purty-it is plain to
soo that if Democrats were in their seats,
mauy important moasures might be de?
cided rightly. Washington correspond?
ents writo, that had oil tho Democratic
members boon present on Wednesday,
whon tho case of Genoral Clark, tho
Texas member, came up, ho would uot
have boon admitted, for thero were seven
Republicana who would not subscribo to
Governor Davis' shameful outrage ou
tho voters of Texas. Our Congressmen
wero elected to attend to business, and
if they aro away ou t hoir own affairs at
homo, or in the metr?polis, thoy deserve
to bo reminded sharply of their duty.

"There- is a story of a little dog that barked
at tho moon, thinking to atop its course."
Union, of loth.
We think tho philosopher of tho Union ?B
tho first geuiua of tho genus Iiomo who made
tho discovery and revealed to tho world what
thu little dog thought whilo he waa barking at
tho moon. We move, if it be in order, that
iu acknowledgment of kia acumen in judging
from the hark of a little dog what his thoughts
are, he be rewarded with & leather medal,
bearing a proper device and inscription.
What would that littlo dog say, think you, to
tho philosopher and patriot who preaidea aver
tho columns of the Union, could hebe brought
back into this mundane sphere? Mot boing
fully poated in dogology, we will not protend
to predict what be would say, were ho hoi b
and endowed with the faculty of speech. But
were ho a patriotic dog and a sensible dog, we
aro or the opinion he would feel fully justified
in Baying, " 'I would rather be a dog and bay
thc moon,' than auch a patriot aa you."
But, speaking of stories, we remember
having onco read a atory, not of a "little
dog," hut ot a certain sweet-scented, long
heardeii animal, who found himself, by a lucky
(urn of tho wheel of fortnne, placed upon a
cliff that he knew waa in accessible to another
animal to which he knew himself io be very
inferior, and thence proceeded to pour out a
perfect torrent of abuse upon bia superior.
The latter, wo aro told, after listening with
great compoauro to tho abusive language of
tho former, quietly roplied, "I regard thia
language as coming, not from you, hut from
the placo you occupy." The application we
leave to tho reader. ABOUS.
Ma. ).. a: That precious electioneering
document, . : lied tho "Presentment of the
Orand Jury," and signed by th- "virtuous"
B. F. Jackson, aa foreman, containa ao many
deliberate falsehoods that we will not waato
timo in examining and refuting them; but
what is said in relation to Union, the District
in whioh wo live, ia BO outrageously falao, and
without tho slighteat .coloring of truth, that
wo cannot allow it to pasa unnoticed. After
stating that elevon murders and over GOO
whippings have been committed in York, he
aaya: "Our investigations in regard to tho
other Counties uamod have beon loaa full,
bat it ia bolievod from the testimony that an
equal or greater number baa been oommitted
in Union," Ao. Mow, aa a oitizeu of Union,
wo ought to know something of the numbor
of outragea committed. We do not claim to
know who committed tho outragea, ajid may
never know, but aa to their number and cha?
racter, ovory reaident baa the means of know?
ing, and does know, aa they aro talked about

We, therofore, challenge the "virtuous" Jack
aou and bia many colored aaaociatea, with
the aaaiatanco of whlto and black Radicale in
Union, to name fifty caaea of whipping in
Union aiuco the war. We don't aak for the
witnesses to prove tho allegations, for wo
know they would not bo forth-coming. All
we ask ia a list of fifty whippings, and the
names of the parties whipped. Surely out of
GOO casca, titty can be given, without diacloa
urea ioj Urions to the United Btatea Govern?
ment or indi vniu Us. Bat we confesa we havo
no hopo or getting ( ny thing tangible from
auch a man or euch a jury. Their purpose ia
ethic ted when they a end out to the world a
lying electioneering document, and they dare
uot meot tho troth face to face. We again
pronounce tho statement, that there have
been GOO whipping i in Union since the war,
talso and calumnious; and that the chargo
originated in a black and depraved heart-a
heart stcoiod to tho Bufferings and wronge of
his own race, and pulsates only for pay.
Tho writer haa omitted his narnu from no
desire of concealment, and the oditor ia au?
thorized to give it tn any ouo who ?B disposed
to furnish tho proof of the statement of the
jury iii regard to Union County.
A CcitE VOR SEA-SICKNESS.-An autho?
rity on this subject says: "I um much
sar [irised at the opinion, which is so
prevalent, of tho incurability of sea?
sickness. I beliove the opinion to exist

applying remedies-a fault to which they
are rather too subject. In the greater
number of instances, I allow the stomach
to dischargo its contents once or twice,
and then, if tbere is no organio disease,
I give five drops of chloroform in a little
water, and, if necessary, repeat the dose
in five or six hours. The almost instant
elicet of this treatment, if coupled with
a few simple precautions, is to cause an
immediate sensation, as it were, of
warmth in tho stomach, accompanied by
almost total relief of the nausea and
sickness, likewise curing the distressing
heacLicho, and usually causing a quiet
sleep, from whioh the passenger awakes
Tho great diamond, weighing 154

irish adventurer had received hospitality
for the night, and that boing surprised
by the light shining amid the darkness,

the wull was built. Of course the clump
