The steamship St. Paul, which was
recently stranded at Long Branch, has
been Bent to the dry dock at Newport
News, which is another evidenco of the
completeness of arrangements there for
shipbuilding or the repairing of vessels
of tho largest sizs. The thoroughness
and success of the work already done at
Newport News is rapidly bringing that
.place to the front as the most important
point for shipbuilding in the United
William Waldorf Asron, the ox
Amerlcan proprietor of the Pall-Mall
'lav. )tte, has not been sufficiently
Anglicised to swallow all the abuse
of his native land lately written by the
Englishmen employed on that piper.
He haB, therefore, requested Mr. Cust,
the editor in chief of tho Gizotte, to
resign, and it is said Is looking around
for some competent American to take
the position of editor, which Is tern"
porarily filled by Douglass Straight.
It is not likely that there will be a
dearth of applicants from this side of

The Honorable VV. W. Berkeloy, the
sole surviving representative of the
"Machine" in this district, is fast mak?
ing a name end a reoord for himself in
the Virginia legislature. Ills bill pro?
posing that the State lay a tariff tax on
Imported compound lard was surprising.
His bill proposing to change the limits
of tho city of Roanoke without tho
knowledge of the mayor, Council or
people of Roanoke, was loth surprising
and ridiculous. His bill proposing to
regulato the conduct and duties of the
?ministers of religion and requirln ? them
to give bond is surprising, rliioulouB
and amusing and but for the fact thatit
excites pity would be disgusting.
The action of the Populist Senators
.In deciding to put their owi ticket in
the field for tho Senate ollioes has caused
aomo of the Republican Senators to
doubt the expediency of attempting to
complete the reorganization of that body
at this time, and it now looks as if this
attempt will be deferred at loast until
there is greater certainty of aocompllsh
insr something more than now appears
po ><ilble. Some of the older Republicans
-<;'. ?essed tho opinion openly yesterday
??h ilt would be unwise to tie up the
?hrjaafte indefinitely over a matter of
sucu comparatively small importance,
and so it appaars that the action of the
caucus was on the whole rather previous.
Mr. Joseph CnAUDEBLAlN,the British
"Secretary of Stato for tho colonleB,
having invited President Kruger, of tho
Dutoh republic of South Africa, to Eng?
land to confer with him, the latter has
notified Sir Horourlcs Robinson, gov?
ernor of Cape Colony, of his willingness
-to do so, provided Mr. Chamberlain will
- distinctly specify beforehand the sub*
jectil to be discussed at tho proposed
conference. Mr. Chamberlain has tho
reputation of being a vory shrewd
diplomat, but if ho does not keep his
eyes well open the "wooden-shoo" rulor
? of the Transvaal will get tho best of
?him, for ho has played a remarkably
line hand in tho game with England as
far as it h&B (rone.
AMERICANS IN CUIIA.
Ccpt. Alex. F. Hamilton, a former
rodent of Buffalo, N. Y., now serving
.. mm ander of the third division of
tt Cuban army under General Garcia,
about two-thirds of the men in
the ranks of the insurgents are Ameri?
cans. If this bo true no are not sur?
prised at the doBperate fighting of the
rebels, who, according to the oQioial ac?
counts ot the Spaniards themselves, do
not hesitate to come to close quarters
with tho enemy and ubb olther the
bayonet or the sabre. Once let a rush
of reoruits from this eountry commence
and the lndependonoe of Cuba is as?
It is evident that it is now or never
with the insurgents. If they fail in this
attempt to liberate the island from the
rule of Spain the yoke will boar down
upon thorn bo heavily that all efforts at
independence will be futile. With fifty
thousand troops, largely made up of
Americans, the Cuban patriots would be
able to successfully resist any force, the
Spaniards might bring against them,
and if men from this country are en?
listing as rapidly as reported they will
not only have that number soon but
possibly as mauy more. At present the
outlook forjrobel success Is very prom?
General Weyler, the successor of
Captain Genoral Campos, arrived at
Havana yesterday and promises to per?
secute the war in a different and far
more vigorous mannor. If he should
havo Americans to fight, however, his
progress towards victory will be as slow
and unsatisfactory as that of his pre?
senator stewart on silver.
The cause of free coinage is steadily
gaining ground in this eountry as the
passage ot the sliver amendment to tho
Housa bond bill by the Senate a short
time sgo proves. The West is largely
in favor of restoring silver to its place
as a stmiard cf value, and tho same
sentiment pr?viUs in most ot tho South?
In Virginia if tho Issue were fairly
presented the majority would be for
the rehabilitation of the white metal.
This sentiment has been greatly the out?
growth of tho "campaign of education"
inaugurated by the administration,
whioh, while using all its influence in
the way of patronage to perpetuate the
power of the gold monometallists, has
se; In motion forces that havo brought
about an opposite way of thinking from
that desired by the President and Cabi?
net, until now there lj a ctro-g and
growing feeling in favor of the free
coinage of silver, which will mako itself
felt in the next national election.
As a part of tho programme of educa?
tion In favor of silver coinage,the friends
of tho white metal in this city have in?
vited Senator William M Stewart, of
Nevada, to deliver an addreea here at the
Academy of Music on Saturday evening,
February 22, which promises to ba one
i of the most interesting and Important
political events that has oc:urred in
this section for years. Senator Stewart
has bann among tho ablest champions of
silver coinage in Congress since the
issue was first raised. II3 is a master of
the subject and all who desire to learn
tho true merits of'tho question should
not fail to hear him.
It is believed that the ctpacity of the
Academy will ba tax 3d to its utmost to
hold the people who will asse :nblo there
on tho occasion referred to, reports
from the surrounding country being to
the effaat that great interest is mani?
fested in tho expected speech. It is
hoped that all friends of silver in this
septlon will remember the date and
see to it that the doubters among their
friends and acquaintances will have a
chance to hear the Senator from

Tho law officials in England sometimes

flogging has over been administered to tho

tho English jail there had been sentenced
to receive 18 lashes for miscouduct, and in
some way the wrong number was set down
on the flogging sheet. On tho day fixed a

On their way to heudquarters they rodo
to a point where they could see the largo
