The new from New Orlrans and Cuba lias
liccn very exciting for a week pasl. Accounts
from Now Orleans to tlio 2otli ult., state that
the riot lind produced the resignation of the
Spanish consul, and thnt before his departure he

A dispatch to th St. Louis Intelligencer,
dited Philadelphih, August 29th, stated that Lo
pez and his force were safely entrenched in the
hills hack of Havana, and that they were hourly
increasing In numbers.
, The New Orleans papers of the 23d ult.,
contain a number of letters written home bv
several of the fifty-two invaders who were taken
prisoners, and awaiting the hour of their execu-
tion. We select the following, from the Delta.
It contains a brief account of the circumstances
of their capture :

thick.' I was up within twenty steps of them
when they were shot. Their hands wci'e tied
behind, and they had to kneel, and were shot by
sections in the back.
Afterwards the soldiers marched in the same1
manner and run their bayonets through their

bodies and struck them on the head with their
muskeU. It was an awful sight, one that I

I do not think there weveo less than 1JU00 or
1,500 soldiers. 1 is very dangerous times for
Americans to go ashore, and the Americans in
the city advised u to get aboard as soon ns pos

o One Day Later from Philadelphia!
SPANISH ACCOUNT NOT liELlKVED.
We take from yesterday evening's Intelli
gencer, the following dispatch from a privatecor-.
. t Philadelphia, Aug. 27.
. Nothing later than the news furnished yester
day has been received here .from Cuba. The
wires South are down. c
The Empire City will be tine in New' York
on Saturday, with Cuban news five days later.
' Tho Spanish accounts of tho late occurrences
are totally annihilated here, and are not believed
by any one.
New Orleans, Aug. 27.
The excitement upon Cuban all'airs is still
great, and no signs of any ubatement ; the prin
cipal streets, arc thronged with rioters, and the
property of Spaniards destroyed iij every direc
1 tion. The Spaniiji Consul has bi .::i 'burned ju
cfllgy, and in the meantime the authorities do
nothing to check the lawlessness uf the mob.
Philadelphia, Aug. 28.

by negroes, and John Clemens dangerously
wounded the citizens of Wythe have held ipcet

Tho friends of tho Cuban patriot held a

The meeting called at ' Washington was so
thinly attended that no organization was effect
ed. It is stated to-day, on the authority of a dis
patch from New Orleans, that the Spanish Con
sul has been killed j but it is generally doubted ;
he was burned in rfllgy on the night nf tho 23d.
Late last evening a private dispatch was re
ceived, stating that the Spanish Consul was not
killed, but has resigned his post and left for

Mayor's Proclamation. We find the
Mayor's proclamation in regard to the riot, da
ted the 21st hist., 1 1 o'clock, r. m., published
in all the papers, but it is merely in the usual
form of such documents, and we will not occu
py space by copying it.
rThe following account of the riot is from
the Commercial JtuUelin of 22d hist :
The Riot. We are pained to be under the
necessity of chronicling an occurrence which is
perhaps .nnre rare in Ncv Orleans than any city
in the Union. Yesterday morning it was antic
ipated that an attack would be made upon the
ofhec of La Vii(r, a Spanish paper published
in the First Municipality; the grounds for this
expectation were, the intemperate and injudi
cious course pursued bv that paper durinir the
agitation of the Cuba question, which has been
occupying t fie public mind for some time past.
We have latterly prudent ially avoided any allu
sion to the articles which have appeared in that
sheet, because we did not choose to incur the
reproach of fanning the fiame of excitement, or
expediting a result which was sure to ensue
sooner or later; they, have, however, been most

tor they luive exercised a license by indiscrimi
nately abusing individuals, and stie-matiziner them
with the most opprobrious terms, which even in

as trophies, first destroying the cases, tvpe, fur-

No buildings were destroyed or even defaced,
