Serious trouble is brewing in Cuba on
account of the non-payment of the royal
troops. Tho Cardenas volunteers on
their return from the C >lon campaign
demanded their pay and were refused.
The colonel of this regiment was Sonor
Adriani, the Governor of /Garden's*, nnd
a man <>f position and standing in the
community. When no nionoy was forth?
coming for the troops, the colonel was
hooted by bis own me n, und insulted in
various other ways. The $2,000,000
borrowed sonic time ago from the Spanish
bank at Havana to pay the soldiers has
been expended. Whether it all went in
that direction or not, is the point in dis?
pute. It is openly asserted in Havana
that a portion of the amount was ship?
ped to Spain by Gen. Valnnusoda. That
is likely. . All fho Captain-Generals of
Cuba have become rich in office. They
used to levj* contributions on the run?
ners of slaves into that island. When
this placer was exhausted, they plun?
dered the Government and people in
other ways. .Since the nrqsuiit war has
been in progress, dividends havo been
extracted from nil public, moneys thnt
passed through the hands of the officials.
This fact, too long unknown to the peo?
ple, is now in the possession of tho
soldiers, and hence they are clamoring
for their pay. And recent events at
Cardenas look as if the volunteers were
about to enforce their rights in .such a
manner as to make matters decidedly

"The interest in the Bescher Til ton
trial revives as tho argument of counsel
druwB to a cloee, and intense feeling is
manifested on both aides of the case. It
is believed that tho Judge's charge will
fix the noptilar opinion of?Beeoher's
guilt, which.has always been strong; but
all who understand men, and know the
matorial of which Plymouth (fturch is
composed, are convinced that the jhry

agree. This now seems to he a settled
thing in the public mind. It will-be re?
membered that the foreman of the jury
declared, when empanneled, he did not
believe Beccher guilty. lie formed that
opinion on his prejudice in favor of Ply?

not, change iL There are four other
men like him on the jury, which will
stand ?vc b>r acquittal and seven for
conviction. Pets are running in some
quarters that Ucet-her will get a ch ar
verdict of acquittal, but this will not be
the result. Mr. Beccher becomes more
and more depressed as his trial draws to
a close. Beach's speech hurt Beccher
more than Tilton's evidence." It.h??..h'?

No matter what the men of New York,
in their cynical way, jhay think,.of tlie
guilt or innocence of' Mr. Bescher,-itis
certain tlui^tbe Nav^orje ladies, as yet,
have never w?vered in their steadfast de?
votion to the great defendant. The
strong arm which has too often upheld
the average preacher from the beginning
of the world to the present has jseeincd
to be more of an earthly nature than oi
that Higher Power to which one would
reasonably expert kjin to turn. Cer?
tainly Mr. Bescher has had his full share
I of, support liom the first mentioned

there is small hope of such a consumma?

Kebi,ct*b Motor.?This new invention,
which, if successful, will revolutionize
machinery and dispense with steam, is
commented on by many correspondents.,.
One of them son: Tho mcohsnicsj and
scientific world has been greatly excited
of lutsby the discovery of ajnew iriotivslt
powe|;bv a Mr. John W. Keeloy, of this
city. The' lately-discovered motor is
generated, as the gentleman claims, from
cold water and air, and evolves into a
vapor more powerful than steam, and
considerably more economical. It is
projtosed by this new invention to revo?
lutionize tho world, and turn machinery,
topsy-luryy. Steam will be a, thiUK
the p'a^t, and the wonderful power of
this new creation will supply' all the
needs of man for the uses to which steam
is now apjdied. Just what this vapor is.
and how it is made, the discoverer re?
fuses to make plain or divulge bis hid?
den secret, until he has b-tters patent
taken out in all thecountries of the globe
which i:isuc patent rights. This serviced
alone will coHt about $!'0.?HK), and will
not bo completed until three or four
months hence. Mr. K. is very reticent on
the subject of his discovery, and re?
ferred your correspondent to his nttor-'
noy, Charles Ii. Collier, Ksq. The latter
gentleman Kaid that a private view of the
working of tho motor had bof>n made on
tho 10th of November, 1874. before a
number of capitalist*, and that only
three weeks since, another exhibition
luul bum given liefore a number of gen
tlemen from the New England Stated
The latter were so Well pleased, with the
ihod'i? operandi, and belie'ved so firmly
< in the ultimate supontcdure of steam by
[ the new power, that they formed a stock
company, and purchased the patent right'
for th* six New England States.
1 Mr. Keeley claims that this apparatus
will generate cold vapor from water by
mechanical appliances, without the use
of chemicals. The water used is com?
mon river, spring or well wst'-r," ond
does not undergo any previous prepara?
tion, a rubber hose from an ordinary
hydrant to the generator bedng used bs n
means of conveying the liquid. The
peculiarity of this vapor is that if <>an be
used to the best advantage at a pressure
of from 20.1kxi to :U),<>00 pounds to the
square inch. To the medianind mind
this seems impossible. Yet such is the
claim of Mr. Keeloy, and it has bee"n
attested that such is the fact by genrie
en who are held to be mechanical ex
?rts of the highest grade.
The. mini who killed more negroes
during the war than any other man was
a loyal Union soldier, one-of two brothers
belonging to a Michigan regiment. At
York town, a negro sharp-shooter in the'
service of the Confederacy, perched in a
tree, pie-ked Off one of the brother*, and,
though the negro was discovered n few
minutes. biter and shot by the Michigan
boys, the surviving brother swore eter?
nal vengeance upon the ?-ntire negro
race, nnd from that hour devot- d him?
self to its extermination. The . exact
numbe r of negroes put out of the way by
this mau would bo astonishing if it could
be known, and ho was never once de
tocted in. his murderous work by any
one who cared to report him. Three of
his sable victims found a grave in the
Ohio, and the soil of-ela^ic-Jelfersonvillc
drank the blood of others, but he ope?
rated wherever his regiment happened
to be stationed, silently and effectually
