MADRID,,October 15.-A Republican
inBtirreotion ba? broken ont among the
troops garrisoning the arsenal at Ferrol,
in the Province of Corunna. The Go?
vernment has despatched a force of
troopB to the town, and summary mea?
sures will be nt once adopted to suppress
the revolt, 1,500 men belonging to the
garrison pf : the arsenal of the town, to?
gether with a portion of the naval coast
guard and some of the population, were
joined in tho movement. The loaders of
the revolt are Montijo and Rojas. The
troops in tho fortress at Ferrol refuse to
join the insurrectionists and are holding
out against them, awaiting the arrival of
reinforcements despatched to the town
by the Government. Tho combined
force, it is believed, will be amply suffi?
cient to suppress the revolt
Details of the revolutionary ontbreak
say that the garrison of the fortress and
the orewof the Spanish war steamer
Majaredo continue to withstand ^ the
. overtures of tba rebels, and remained
faithful to the Government. Notwith?
standing this the insurgents had suc?
ceeded in gaining possession of the gun?
boats which were anchored in the harbor.
They also obtained possession of the
light-house, and imprisoned the keeper.
By '. these. moans thoy have closed thc

THU ^RPBS?AN MOVEMENT TOWARDS
CHINA. -^The lntoet mail from . british
India, under date of September 8,. sup
plies evidence of the fact that the BOB
sianImperial ruler still turns his eyes iu
the direction of the fertile territory of
the Mongolian people, which lies adja?
cent to his own. We are told that four
officers of the Russian army, attended
by an escort of twelve meo, had just
visited Yarkand, ia Chinese Turkestan,
where they were favorably reoeived by
the Governor, ?taliq Ghazi. The Rus?
sians had a look over the rich and ex?
tensive plain by which they were sur?
rounded, and departed quietly and sud?
denly SB they came. Such movements
do not escape thu notice of the officials
of the Chinese empire proper. The
same press files from India tell us that
Chinese officers and troops were busily
engaged in repairing and re-arming the
Taku fortH, and we are made aware gene?
rally of the fact that an uneasy feeling of
apprehension of war prevails among tho
military men who serve the Chinese
Emperor. The subject is quite intereat
iog, and the military-diplomatic stra
1 tegy of the great empires of China and
Rueda well worth the constant attention
of the great outside powers of the world,
more particularly that of the commercial
populations of the United States aud
Great Britain.-New York LTerald.
The Pope County troubles appear to
be at last settled. Here is what the Lit?
tle Rock Gazelle, of Wednesday, says:
"Notwithstanding the Journal aud those
who stand behind it have done all in their
power to force a conflict in Popo County
whioh would necessitate a declaration of
martial law there, and denounced Judgo
English and Col. Clark as minstrels for
consenting to visit the County and en
I deavor to bring about peace, we are
happy to state that the glad tidings
reach us of a settlement of all the
troubles. Dodson has not only resigned
as Sheriff, but himself aud Hickox have
declined the minstrel nominations for
Sheriff and Clerk of tbe County. The
militia are to bo disbanded at once, a
new man is to be sent to tbe County as
Sheriff, the Cirouit Court will progress
with business as formerly, and every?
thing will be quiet. Gen. Upbam, Lieut.
Groves and about eight members of the
guards came down yesterday."
The Meridian Gazelle, of Ootober ll,
says: "Col. T. W. Price, of Wiloox
County, Ala., an aged and respeoted
citizen, ha? been arrested by Federal
authority, dragged from his home aud
carried to Mobile. Some months ago,
Gol. Price was- elected Judge of the
Court of Quarter Session, over an in?
famous carpet-bagger named Colton,
who contested the election and Was tho?
roughly discomfited. Cotton's next step
was to trump up a charge against Prioe
of violation of the eleotion laws, and
have him arrested as above stated. Be?
fore proceeding to Mobile with the pri?
soner, .a proposition was mada to bim to
the effect that if he would relinquish his
claim to the office of Judge, the prose?
cution of the charges would be dropped.
This Judge Price indignantly spumed,
and he was conveyed to Mobile in charge
of tbe United StateB Marshal."
WHERS "THE INTIMIDATION" REALLY
Is.-While, like the wolf in the fable,
the Grant men are crying out that the
Southern lamb will muddy the stream
their silent master is practically attempt?
ing "intimidation" wherever be oan.
Here is the latest instance: In North
Carolina, fifty citizens of Pitt County, ,
in charge of United StateB Deputy Mar?
shal Franois, were brought before United
Stutes Commissioner Robinson, at Golds- j
boro,.on Monday, on the charge of ob- ,
strnoting Commissioner Cox and Mar- ,
shal Roach. After a long and patient
hearing, the cases were all dismissed by
the Commissioner. Tbe work of intimi- ,
dation goes on, but behind it is the in?
tense indignation of the people at these ,
unjust arrests. Tho same result has just
been reaohed at Atlanta, where the over
jealous Farrow tried a similar experi?
ment. "Let ns have peace."
THE L. N. FEWELL TRIAL.-lu conse?
quence of the Presidential eleotion which
comes off on Tuesday, the trial of L. N.
Fowell was set for Wednesday of the No?
vember County Court, instead of Mon?
day, as was first understood. This will
give witnesses and others who have to
attend the trial an opportunity to vote
on Tuesday before oomiog to court.

mals dry up instead of decomposing, and
neither exercise nor exposure to the
sun's rays produces perspiration."

Thc A r Linns un Horrors,
Having jnet returned from Osceola,
Arkansas, lam enabled to send a state?
ment of the impending troubles at that
point. The town of Osoeola contains
some GOO inhabitants, live dry gooda
stores, seven retail groceries or grog?
shops, and several dozen trading resi?
dents of various kinds. These are what
are left by the tornado which swept over
the place two weeks ago, and' destroyed
some twenty houses, including a ohuroh
and three store-houses, with their con?
tents. Osceola is the County seat of
Missouri County, Arkansas, and is on
the Missouri Hiver, ninety milea above
this city. The surrounding country ia
swampy, and the settlement, except an
occaeioual cotton or farm plantation of
several hundred acres, is rather a wild
region. Except by river, there is no
communication with the place from this
city, and it has neither railroad nor tele?
graph station, though there is a regular
landing for steamers. Tho inhabitants,
except those who own farms, are of au
illiterate type, such aa generally reside
in a newly-Bettled country. For the past
six years, the County officials have been
of the stripe of the followers of ex-Gov.
Clayton and his doctrines. Their eleva?
tion to office was entirely due to the ne?
groes and ignorant whites. Property
and land-owners have had no vote in the
eleotion of officials, and a split in tho
dominant party in tho State gave the
Liberals some hope of ohanging the
political situation, and eventually secur?
ing a loss bated set of County officials.
The principal leaders of the faction were
Murray, the Sheriff of Missouri County,
and Fitzpatrick, the County Register.
The latter is a bold, bad, erratic mun, oi
violent prejudices, a carpet-bagger from
Kentucky, and a confirmed Radical.
Ia a public discussion of local politics,
some six weeks ago, he denounced She?
riff Murray, whom he afterwards shot
and killed in an altercation, which
brought great denunciation down on
him. He was a Liberal or "brindle
tail," and popular with the people.
Fitzpatrick was an extremist, with onlj
negroes for associates, and oonsiderablt
feeling was engendered by hia killing ol
Murray, which waa by somo regarded ir
tho light of self-defence, that officia
having commenced the assault that re
eulted in bis death. Fitzpatrick wai
soon released under bonds to appear a
the succeeding term of oort.
A short time since Colonel Gouso
Liberal candidate for Congress, visit?e
Osceola to speak on the political issues
Fitzpatrick met him and asked to bi
permitted to "divide time." Goose de
dined to recognize him, and was com
polled to leave tho place, because Fitz
patriok declared he would break up hi
meeting by getting np an oppositioi
meeting a few hundred yards distant
Bad feeling was increased by this cir
oumstance, and some threats were mad
by both factions. List Tuesday waa th
appointed time for the County court t
be held. Judge Palmer, of Helena, wa
appointed special Judge in the absenc
of Judge Stephenson, who had gone o
to settle the Popo County trouble, i
uompany with W. H. Clayton, brothe
to Senator Powell Clayton, aud prosecu
ing attorney for tho circuit; also seven
members of the bar. He arrived i
Osceola by steamer from this oity ear]
on Tuesday morning. It waa soon pa
pablo that trouble waa brewiog, an

Daring tho morning session of tl
court a party of armed white men, sou
twenty in number, marched into tr.
place and stacked artus in a store. Thc
stated that they desired to protect tl
court and jurors from attack or intim
dation by bodies of armed negroes who
Fitzpatrick was known to have 1 u rki ii
in the neighborhood. An armed par;
of negroes, carrying a flag, also marchi
through tho town and drew up in froi
of Fitzpatrick's office. The latter toe
their colors and placed them over L
house. He conferred with Judgo Pt
mer, and stated that he waa anxious

All were under arms, and had joined t
contending factions, tho whites, und
their chosen leader, Bowen, taking po
tiou to the North of the town, and t
blacks, under Fitzpatrick, stationed o
mile ?South of tho village, both ou t
river banka. Judge Palmer, Attorn
Clayton, Sheriff Driver, and several i
tlaential friends, met the belligerei
under flag of troco, and read the R:
Act to the leaders of each. Fitzpatri
promised to disperso his band, 1
strong, and all tho blacks. The otl
side disclaimed being rioters. Dari

the parties, and long range skirmish
was kept up for an hour or two, resi

whites subsequently drew, off, retiree

volunteers to aid tho whites and cam
near the plaoe.
Saturday morning, shortly before I
left the nonne, the whites ander Bowen
returned from the Southward with forty
two black prisoners, captured in the
swamps and about various plantations.
All were charged with being participants
with Fitzpatrick with the troubles. The
stores and houses were all closed, and
much of tho goods and plunder had
beon removed acrons the river or else?
where. Families were also sent out of
the place, cotton fields were deserted,
workshops closed, and the general ap
poarauco denoted strife nod disaster.

under arms may, without acknowledged
leaders, become plunderers, and porhaps,

A feeling of insecurity prevails among
all good citizens of the County. Au
order had arrived from Qov. Hadley, re?
moving Fitzpatrick from tbe office of

garded by the people. Fitzpatrick
passed through this city, to day, on his
way to Little Book, where be expects to
lay bis grievances to the State authori?
ties. He boasts, like a braggart, con?
quering hero of. his exploits, and.thinks
he will go .back -clothed with authority
to call oat tho militia and devastate the

NEW MACUINEBY FOB COMTRBSSEKG
COTTON.-On Friday last, a number of
gentlemen, representing the commercial
and mechanical interests, assembled at
the Charleston cotton press, Church
street, near Broad, to witness tbe opera?
tions of a new steam and hydraulic cot?
ton press, designed and ioveoled by
John F. Taylor, Esq., of the firm of
John F. Taylor & Co., the well known
proprietor of the Pbccuix.Iron Works of
this city, where the press was boilt.
The press consists of two steam cylin?
ders, each fifty-six inches in diameter
and eight feet stroke. A hydraulic ram
is attached to the piston of each of the
fifty-six iocb steam cylinders. The
diameters of these rams are twenty-two
inches and nine inches. These rams are
coooected by pipes to two other rams,
attached to thu platten on which the
bale of cottoo is placed.
The tweoty-two inch ram imparts the
initial presenro to the balo of cotton, and
the nine inch ram tho finishing pressure.
The piston that imparts, tbe initial press?
ure being operated by! the exhaust steam
from tho piston to which the eight inch
rum is attached, .which steam, having
then done all that is required of it, is
discharged iuto an apparatus for heating
the water which .is.'intended to be fed
into the steam boiler. The piston that
imparts the finishing 'proseare is ope?
rated by live steam from the boiler. The
steam is subsequently discharged into
the other oylicdur, there to communicate
aoother initial pressore, or the initial
pressure imparted to the next bale of
cotton pressed. The steam is supplied
by au ordinury cylindrical tubular boiler,
twelvo feet long and four feet in diame?
ter. A pressure of seventy pounds per
square inoh in the boiler produces a
pressure of 1,000 tons on each bale, irre?
spective of size. Consequently, every
bale is compressed to the same density.
Thojworking of the press was watched
with great interest by those assembled,
it being something new, and gave per?
fect satisfaction ia every particular,
turning out 100 bales of cotton to the
hour. Its movement was almost noise?
less, holding the balo firmly aud making
it as neut a package as possible. It is a
?abor saver aud economizer of fuel, and
gives out more power with half the
?team, (say sixty pounds,) than does the
Did patent with 120 pouuds. Upon the
whole, it muy be considered-and we
say so on tho authority of experienced
mechanics-as a triumph of genius and
mechanical skill, and as soon as it be?
comes generally known-the one we
refer to being tho second one put op-it
will take the place of its rivals, if the
others may be so termed.
An affair of the heart-palpitation.
