NEWYOBK, Jane 2.-The Herald, id
announcing the death of Mr. Bennett,
says, five years ago Mr. Bennett entirely
withdrew from tho activo management
of the Herald, but although in feeble
frame, bis general health had been re?
markably good, while his due intellect
remained unimpaired, aud his interest
in the events of the day continued
unabated ap to the momeat of his fatal
illness. About half-past 1 o'clock, last
Saturday afternoon, Mr. Bennett Buffered
a Blight convulsive attack, accompanied
by epileptic symptoms, but not suffi
oiently marked or violent to excite ap
prehension of immediate danger. A
half-past 1 o'clock, last Sunday morning,
the attaok was repeated with greatei
severity, and from that time it beoami
evident, although the oonstant attend
ance of Drs. Ooroorane, Hammond anc
Lu'sk, insured the exhaustion of al
within reach of haman efforts to aver
the fatal result. On Tuesday last, a

McCluskey visited his bed-side and ad
ministered io him the sacraments of th'
ohuroh. When the last hoar arrived h
sank to sleep in death, calmly aud peace

CALIFORNIA COTTON.-The experiment

on a moro extensive scale that hereto?

po?? Creek, quito extensive patches of
land bave been planted with cotton, and
one party planted no less than 400 nore?
Small parcels of land have also boen
planted in other parts of tbe State. The
points that remain undetermined chiefly
relate to the economic production of the
staple, the experiments heretofore being
directed for the most part to the question
of the adaptability of the country for
its production. It now only remains to
show that the staple can be profitably

CUBAN GAMBLERS EMIGRATING TO THE
UNITED STATES.-About a fortnight ago
tbe Spanish authorities caused a descent
to be made simultaneously on the many
gaming houses iu that city. We are
told that over a hundred professional
gamblers were arrested, besides a great
number of persons who were "assisting"
at the various sports. It appears that a
number of officials have become default?
ers in largo Bums belonging to the Go?
vernment, and tbat the origin of their
misdeeds bad been traced to the faro
hanks, the roulotte wheels and tho
monte tables. Hence thu sadden reso?
lution of tho authorities to break up the
gambling business iu Havana, and the
late summary action pointing to tbat
end. The officials agreed to release the
captured gamblers on one condition,
viz: that they would depart from Cuba
within a specified time. This offer wus
accepted and the exiles decided to seleot
New York as their future residence. The
New York Times objects to this in vigor?

company is not at all desired.
A row occurred in Dan Bice's circus
tent, during a performance at Baxter

Terwilger were killed. The tent was
pocked full at the time, and, as might be
expected, the excitement was immense.
Tbe screaming and fainting of the ladies
and obildreu was huge, while the colored
brethren made a bee-line in a body from
that tent, and, if reports are authentic,
are running yet.
