Gen. De Rodas's Mission to Cespedes—
Autonomy be Proposed to the Patriot
Autonomy be Proposed to the Patriot Leader--The Volunteers again
Refuse to Fight—Valmaseda's Report
and Accusation—Fighting near Remedies—
Women on Trial.
- Havana, Jan. 25. Shortly after the ar
rival of Gen. Carbo from the Cinco Villas
the Colonels of Volunteers were called to
gether by Gen. De llodaa, rho informed
them of the critical 6itu .tion in Camagney
and the East, and of his intention to march
on Gnaimaro at the head of the volunteers.
The Colonels agreed to consult their men,
and a day or two ago brought back the
suggestion that 20,000 Jicii from bpain
r-hould be called for, declining at the same
time to move Irom their present quarters.
This is f lgnificant, and Count Valmaseda's
recent commuuication does not mend mat
ters. He denounces the brave and enter
prising Benegassi as insubordinate, and
avows that he did not move to meet Paello
and Goyncche as ordered, to march in the
direction of Guaimaro, beeauso he saw no
possible chance of success.
I have it from an official source of tbe
first importance, that the reason of Gen.
De liodas's attempt to move the Volun
teers eastward, was a poremptory order by
Cable lrom the Regent s government for an
interview with Ctspedes, in which that
leader should be offered the autonomy of
the island. As the volunteers are too bru
tal to consent to anything which may de
prive them of their present power. Gen.
De Rodas would have been wise to have
shipped them ut of the way. Do Eodas
will now leave his command to Gen. Carbo
and proceed to .Puerto Principe. When he
returns, he will lodge himself in the Caban
as, and thence operate boldly against the
armed mob. He declares that he proceeds
to Principe merely to obey orders, and en
tertairs no hope ot the acquiescence of
Cespedes to terms of autonomy at this day.
A letter written by an officer under Goy
eneche at Ciego de AvjJa reports the loss
of 400 of his men in encounters with the
enemy along the road. Another letter
from a Spanish merchant at San Juan de
los F.e:nedio8 reports a fight almost in view
of that city, in which the Spaniards lost
five officers and 80 soldiers, and the rest
ran away. He further states that -the in
surrection is making progress among the
Cinco Villas and in Colon. CoL Lamela
has arrived from Moron, badly wounded.
The trial of women for treason has be
Gome frequent in this devoted island. Many
have been incarcerated 6ince the outbreak
of war. and the following, at latest advices,
were beina tried by court-martial: Donas
Victoria Vales, Carmen Correa de Carbo
nelL Iiosario Cortasa de Hubirosa, Rosa
Perez Valdes, Placida Perez Valdes, and
Dolores Perez de Alfonso, lou Lave al
ready heard of the death sentence of Dona
Fernandez at Espiritu Santo. Donas Cata
lina Torres and Car-delaria Rodriguez, the
latter with her three children, have been
taken into custody near Trinidad.
The Alba, of ilia Clara, states that in
sixty skirmishes which took place in the
jurisdiction of the Cinco Villas during De
cember, 248 insurgents were killed, 91 were
captured, and 551 horses were seized. The
negro, Dorotcs, commanded a body of Cre
oles lateiv surprised, near mount laguiai.
Iu Mina Rica and lliuas Bajas, 31 ranches
have been destroyed. iear ilia Clara,
Esmntu. Trinidad, and bagua, various
skirmishes are rerorted by the Spaniards.
Between Cienluegos and Trinidad they 6ay
that a camp of insurgents has been 6ur
prised, and ISO of them left dead upon the
field, in the Cinco Villas district, 250
tenanted places have been destroyed. It is
proposed at Caidenas to increase the civil
guard to o.UUU men. any observer i tne
situation will be able to judge from these
desultory facts, all of them from Spanish
sources, that the rebellion is not by any
means crushed out-
Curious New Year Customs.
The Germans of Trnusylvania s;iil retain
a very carious custom which is reported by
of the servant girls," says the Presse, "con
jure up on the night b-fore New Tear's
health for the coming year lrom the in vis
ible powers. Exactly at midnight they go
to the well of the third house from that in
which they are serving, where they draw
water and carry it home, without daring
to turn or look back at the call of a living
or dead spirit, else the whole charm of the
thing would be broken. Arriving home,
the enchanted water is poured on a plate,
On the plate some evergreen leaves are
placed, ai.d each leaf is given the name of
some person, wnose Inlure is supposed
to be foretold in it on ew lears
day. The examination of the leaves
takes place on the following morning. If
the K-af remains green, the person repre.
sentr-d by it will remain frsh and healthy
during the year; email black streaks upon
the leaf indicate short sicknesses; great
! 'ack stripes forebode severe diseases; and
a total black leaf is a sign of death.
'-Blessed are the poor in intellect," adds
the Presse, "for theirs is the kingdom of
Heaven. Many other similar supersti
tions might be mentioned. In Frankfort it
is the custom to eat white cabbage for sup
per on Sylvester evening, as this ensures
money enough to the person eating it for
the coming year. Visiting on New Year's
day is net carried on to so great an extent
here as in America, and the sending oi
cards with the greetings of the season an
swers just the same purpose. Americans,
nevertheless, keep up the home curtom to
a great extent here.

A prevailing siyle of arranging the

A Heboic Hescuk The Boston Trav

nesday afternoon, as the Fort Warren tug
loat was making tier regular outward trip,
having on board a party of soldiers return
ing to tne lort, one 01 them, wno was
slightly under the influence of liquor,
climbed up on the gunwale of the boat, lost
his balance and nil, striking his head
against a spike, wLich cut an ugly gah

Lieut. Zintki sprung over the 6ide to save

drowning man and caught him, when both
sunk like so much lead. The lieutenant
gained the surface again with his burden.
and was Finking for the second time, when
Slichael Drown, a Private, about 22 vears
of age, spiuDg to the rescue,, thereby risk

and by dint of hard shoving and swim

Spending and Saying.
earn money is ea?y compared with
spending it well; anybody may dig up
potatoes, but it is not one woman in ten
that can cook them. Men do not become
rich by what they get, but by what they
save. As soon as tt e spendthtift gets his
estate, it goes like a lump of butter in a
greyhound's mouth. All his days are the
first of April; he would buy an elephant at
a barcrain. or thatch his house with pan
cakes, nothing is too foolish to tickle his
fancv: his money burns holes in his Docket,
and he mutt squander it, always boasting
that his motto is, 'Spend, and God will
send.' He never spares at the brim, but
he means, he says, to save at tbe bottom.
Times never were good to lazy prodigals;
if they were good to them, they would be
bad for all the world besides.
There axe more asses than those with
four legs. I m sorry to Bay they are found
among working men as well as fine gentle
men. Fellows who have no estate but
their labor, and no family arms except
those they work, with, will yet spend their
little earning at the Deer-6hop or in
waste. Driukine water neither makes a
iiitin sick nor in debt, nor his wife a wid
ow, ami vet some men hardly know the
flavor of it; but beer, guzzled down as it
is by many a working man, is nothing
better than brown ruin. Some families
are merry as mice in malt on very small
wages, and others are as wretched as rats
in a trart on double the amount Those
who wear the shoe know best where it
pinches, but economy is a fine thing, and
makes ninepence go further than a shilling.
Some make soup out of a flint, and others
can t get nourishment OHt ot gravy oeeL
Some go to shop with as much wit as
Sampson had in both his shoulders, but
no more; they do not buy well; they have
not sense to lay out their money to advant
Bnvers ought to have a hundred eyes,
bnt these have not even half of one, and
they do not open that Well was it said
that if fools did not go to market, bad
wares would never be sold. They neyer
oot a nennvworth for their penny, and
this often because they are on the hunt for
cheap things, and forget that generally
the cheapest is the dearest, and one can
not buy a good shillings worta or a
bad artible. When there's five eggs for a
penny, four of them are rotten. People
are often eavinz at the wrong place, and
spoil the ship for a ha'po'rth of tar; others
look after small savings and forget greater
things; they are penny wise and pound
foolish ; they spare at the spigot, and let
all run away at the bunghole. borne buy
thinas thev don't want because they are
great bargains; let me tell them that what
they do not want is dear at a farthing.
Fine dressing makes a great hole in poor
people's means. John Floughman s talk,
Let us. following in brief abstract the ae
count of Mr. Orton, touch upon some
prominent characteristics of this great
ocean river. It rises in the little Peruvian
Lake of Lauricocba, just below the limits
of perpetual snow. For 500 miles it flows
swiftly through a deep valley. Then,
turning 6harply eastward, it runs 2,500
miles aero.-s the great equatorial plains.
Two thousand miles above its morth its
width is a mile and a half, increasing to
more than ten miles at the head of the
delta, where it divides, and, after running
iOO miles, presents a front of 150 miles up
on the ocean, ror a great distance it is
bordered by Bide channels or "bayt j,m as
they are called upon the Mississippi,
named by the Indians iqarapts, or canoe-
From Santarem, the principal town above
Para, one may paddle a thousand miles
parallel to the river without once entering
the stream. For twenty-fit eniegrees of lat
itude every river that flows down the east
ern 6lope of tbe Andes is an affluent of the
Amazon. It is thought all the rivers lrom
Mexico to Oregon united their waters in
the Mississippi. A half score of these
tributaries are larger the Danube excepted
than any European river out of Kassia.
The volume of its waters, is ; greater even
than the breadth of the river, would indi
cate. At Nauta, '2209 miles from its mouth,
the depth is 40 feet, increasing rapidly as
it approaches tbe ocean. Ihe largest
ocean steamer could doubtless steam 2QO0
miles rp the Amazon.
The vegetation of the valley is exuber
ant There is a bewildering diversity of
grand and beautiful trees, a wild, uncon
qured vegetable giants, draped and fes
tooned by creeping plants. The moment
you land upon the shore yon are confronted
by a solid wall of vegetation, through
which, if you wish to proceed, you must
hew your way with ax or machtn. Palms,
of which three varieties are noted, consti
tute the majority of trees. Then there are

used for tea, conee, and custtrds. ihe
"caucho." or rubber tree, though of a dif
ferent specis from that of the East Indies,
produces a gum which constitutes most of
the rubber of commerce. Agassiz puts this
tree, forty or eighty feet high, in the
same class with the "miiK weed 01 our
American pastures. r Ot ornamental
woods there is no end. Foremost among
these is the 'Moira-Pinima, or "tortoise
shell wood," the most beautiful in grain
and color of any in the world. Enough of
this is wasted every year to veneer all the
dwellings of the civilized world. For
many years to come the exports of the
Amazon Valley niURt be mainly the pro
ducts of its forests. Yet strangely enough,
timber is bow one of the chief articles of
import at Para. A city n 3o, 900 inhab

This folly will in time come to an end.
Contrary to all that we might- expect, tbe
climate of the Amazon Valley is temperate
rather than tropical. It is more equal than
in anv other region of the world. Year in

High Prices is Hoesk-flesh. The fol
lowing statistic?, concerning the enormous
prices that horses of great reputation have
commanded, is taken from The Turf, Field
and Farm: At JSewmarket, in 1806, a bay
colt by Pipato. sold for $75,000. In the
same year, a 2-year old colt by Ben din bor
ough, a 2-year old by Volunteer, and a 3.
year old filly by Sir Peter, were sold for $75.-
000 each. For the celebrated borse bhark.
$50,000 were refused, end O'Kelly declined
to accept an offer of $1BO,000 for his Btal
lion. Tradition 6ays that the Duke of
Devonshire refused for Flying Childers the
weight of the horse in gold. A few years
ago the great sire Stockwell coald not be
bought for $100,000; and we presume that

Avothkb Voyage to thb Abctic Seas
Capt. Haix's Plan. Oar lellow-citizen,
Citpt C F. Hall, proposes to undertake
another voyage to the A Otic seas. lie says:
I now have returned to my country uetor-
mined to devote my hari-earned experience
in the Arctic regions to making one more
voyage, and this ior the social object 01
geographical discovery from latitude eighty
degrees noith up to the North Pole by way
of Jones's Sound, or Smith's Sound, pur
posing, however, to make trial first up the
former. My ph n, in Driei, is to nave two
small vessels, of about one hundred and
fifty tons each "me a steamer, the same to
be Bailing-rigged the other a sailing ves
sel, and each oiucered and manned by
twelve men. My purpose .is, on getting
into the Arctic regions, to lose no oppor
tunity of acquir ng the fresh provision of
the country, which course will insure my
command against all possible danger from
that curse to Arctic (ipeditions, the scar-
vey. As a general thing my staple diet
so of my company will be as formerly
raw meat and train oi' I confidently be
lieve I will be able to r-mch the North Pole
and return in three ' rears; but should I
find that it would reouire one or two ad
ditional years to complete the object of the
voyage and travel, J will continue that
time. Cin. Hints.

Jaw of Her Son—A Tooth Fits in the Jaw--The Murderer Convicted.
From the Kansas City Times.
The Circuit Court et Nodaway county,
Mo., has been in session during the past
week, Judge L C Parker presiding. Most
of the time was occupied in the trial of
Solomon McAlpine for the murder of John
Callicott, developing a most singular case
of circumstantial evidence.
In August, 18G6, these two young men
leit Holly ville, Iowa, to come to St Joseph
to buy apples,, expecting to load their wag
ons here and retHrn to Iowa and sell their
fruit Not long after some few days, we
believe UeAlpine returned to Hollyville,
told some plausible story abont his partner
having made some other arrangements and
gone on to St. Joseph, aud for some time
no further notice was taken of the matter.
The continued absence of Callicott and
the fact that nothing was heard from him,
finally induced the arrest ot McAlpine, but
on his examination nothing was elicited
criminating him, and he was dii-chnrged.
A long search for Callicott proved unavail
ing, and for 18 months a profound mystery
enveloped the case.
In March, 18G3, a party of railroad en
gineers, surveying the route of the Mis
souri Valley Railroad, Borne six miles north
east of Marysville, found the skeleton of a
man. An investigation aroused the suspi
cion tkat it was Callicott The authorities
in Iowa were written to, and witnesses were
brought down. The mother of Callicott
recognized a bony protuberance 011 the
chin of the skeleton; also the absence of a
tooth drawn on the day he Btarttd on his
fatal trip, and his mother preserved the
tooth. It fitted the jaw of the skeleton,
and a dentist testified that it had been
drawn from the orifioe. Tieces ot a blue
coat and several peculiar buttons were found
near the skeleton.
These were recognized as resembling
parts of Callicott's dress when he left home.
There were three bullet holes in the skull.
The identificaticn was so complete that Mr.
McAlpine was arrested, and, after several
continuances, the case came to trial on last
Monday, and ri suited in tbe conviction ot
the prisoner. The Jndgo instructed the
jury that any want of proof mitigating the
crime from mnrdtr in tbe first degree need
not restrain their rendering a verdict iu the
second degree. We learn that neither Mc
Alpine nor his friends nor his friends or
attorneys manuesiea any atssaubiai-tiuu
with the verdict and the case will not be
It Costs More Than Bread.
A few days ago a policeman remarked :
'There aie three glasses oi Jiquor drank in
this city for each loaf of bread that is eaten."
Suppose this true; then lor each loaf of
bread, at ten cents, there is paid for drinks
thirty cents; or Vtree timet as mvchfor liqrior
as for brtndt
It is estimated that four barrels of flour
will supply a family of five persons with
bread for a year. A barrel of flour will make
264 pounds of bread and the four barrels
will give 1,056 pounds. At 6ix cents per
pound this is $15,84 for each barrel of
flour, or $02,36 for the four barrel If this
estimate is too low, take five barrels of
flour for each family of five persons, and
the value of bread at six cents a pound is
$79 20 a year.
The 182,000 families of five persons each,
constituting the population of thecity, on.
sume at this rate bread to the va'ue of $14,
414,400 a year.
There are in this city at least four thou
sand places where intoxicating liquors are
sold. The number in New York aud Brook
lyn, in 18C6. was 9,270.
If these receive on an average $30 a day
each, that is $43. 800,000 a year. It is trno
some of the drinking houses are mere
"holes in the wull," but others of them are
palaces. Some of them take in only a few
dollars a day, while large numbers of oth
ers take in hundreds of dollars.
But it is not at the drinking bosses, at
public bars, where all the intoxicating
liquors are consumod. At eating houses
at clubs, and at the hotels, are expended
large sums for wine aud strong spirits.
Thus the use of strong drink counts up
very fast as against bread. .Atio York

It is proposed by the Presbyterians to raise
$5,0000,000 as "a memorial of their happy
reunion. A committee of five, ministers
and five elders have taken the matter iu
hand, and haye published a plan of opera

objects in this fund "the ordinary contri

only its permanent institutions at home
and abroad," aud "such extraordinary
claims as grow out of our new position."
Such are the endowment of colleges and
theological seminaries, including training
schools in heathen lands, institutions for
the freedmen, church buildings newly pro
jected, hospitals and asylums, and the fund
for the support ot disabled ministers and
their families. Donations for any of thes
