Cuba. . Never before have we seen the moral BenBibilities of a public jour touBelv affeotcd as have been those of the ven tenBeiy aneowu f th National In erable and respected editors on tdUomcer. first, by the attempt of a few of our fellow citizens, upon their individual responsi bility, to aid in the liberation of Cuba; and secondly and chiefly, by their total discomfiture in this attempt. From that journal we learn that France und England have expressly guarantied to Spain their protection in the possession of Cuba; while a Washington correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce confirms the report of a secret treaty in which the United States ar? pledged to preserve Cuba to 8pain. ThiB writer states, that " in the archives of our Gov ernment we have an engagement made, in ?Jackson's Administration, between the United ? States, England and France, to the cffect that ? Cuba shall not be seized by either party, and ? that Spain shall remain in undisturbed posses 4 sion of the island." In the face of all this, of course no argument is expected to be offered in defence of the right of the people of that island to work out their independence, and certainly none in vindication of the right of any other people to give them aid in such an undertaking! Nevertheless, our Declaration of Independence sets out with the position that " in the course of human events, 4 it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve ? the political bands which have conneoted them j 4 with anotherand proceeds to aver that gov ernments derive 44 their just powers from the con 4 tent of the governedtogether with sundry other vagrant and heretical notions of the rights of man. That the treaties binding Cuba to the yoke of Spanish cruelty and oppression are superior to such primary laws as these, we of course have not the temerity to doubt, and we bow with deference to the authorities we cannot gainsay! If it be said that four hundred men are not sufficient to effect the liberation of Cuba, and it is the very folly of rashness itself to invade that island with so small a number, we have no disposition to object. If it be said that the peo ple of Cuba have not yet made such demonstra tions as afford a pledge of their desire to break from the thraldom of their masters, we are equally unwilling to enter into a controversy. But when we are told that England, France, and the United States, are pledged to protect Spain in its possession of that island, we at once yield to the impulse that bids us defy every such guarantee, and to menace the govern ments that dare usurp such a power! The will, on the part of Cuba, and her ability, with such aid as she can procure, are all the warrant re quisite for the procuring her independence; and these three governments have not the power to resist her in such an effort. The great republic of the world contains too much of the demo cratic spirit to tolerste this unholy league; and while the people of both France and the United States would hurl from their high places the Administrations attempting to enforce its stipu lations, the wounds of Ireland and of the laboring . classes of England would bleed afresh, and Eng land would find enough to do in the preserva tion of quiet within her own dominions. The revolutionary spirit that raged to excess through out Europe a few years ago is not extinct, and the faint cries from Cuba, borne on the winds to the Eastern Hemisphere, would revive the smothered flames by which the monarchies of Europe are yet to be destroyed. It was never a hope of ours, except through i the influence of a miracle, that any thing but disaster could attend an Invading army of four hundred men in Cuba ; and could we have pre sented their departure, gladly would we have done so. But even this certainty of defeat could not induce us to denounce their motives and invoke discomfiture upon them. Cuba and her freedom are the same to us under all cir cumstances; and we shall continue to pray for her deliverance from the rule of Spanish ty ranny, until the arrival of the happy day of its consummation. The darkest hour of the night j heralds the near approach of morning. The present hour is not without hope?hope of a brighter morrow and a just revenge. An American Steamxe ?The steamer Geor gia, which plies between New York and Chagres, has been a remarkably successful vessel. In twenty-one months she has traveled more than one hundred thousand miles, and in all that time has never paused an hour at sea, nor re quired the aid of a machinist or carpenter. Her first six or seven trips averaged a profit to her owners of from forty-six to forty-seven thousand dollars! We have obtained these facts from a gentleman attached to her. Matarzas.?The Argus arrived at Charleston from Motanzas on the 6th instant, with dates to the 29th ultimo. The Spaniards there ex press much contempt for the Creoles for indu cing Lopez to undertake the invasion, and then deserting him. Americans at Matanzas were apprehensive for their safety, the Spaniards being much excited. A Fouoivinh 8pi*it.?On Friday last a man was sent to jail by Justice Donn, in default of payment for the maintenance of an otherwise nneared-for child. Yesterday his wife paid the amount in arrears, gave secority in the sum of $80 for the future support of the little one, and took her husband to her home again. Now that is a wife as is a wife ! 8hcst*k's.?Seventh street, between D and Louisiana avenue, is to be a noble place of busi ness. Shatter has gone there, and the fashion able folks will follow him. The Exehange Bank eo the oppoeite side of the street has assumed i noble appseranee. This is a great square. Basiases will flew Into it We knew what wouM Callow our locating on Seventh street f j ' 11 f>iMWamt ry. Matthiw St. Clair Clarw od?? ? conversation with the late British Minister at this oapital, when the latter remarked: ??You Americans hate great aptness for thia thing of annexing ; I hope you will not .elect England in your future extensions. "Speak softly, sir, softly," replied Mr. Clarke, with apparent earnestness; " if our boys onoe hear the thing suggested, your coun try is swallowed up." The minister laughed a laugh of mingled pleasantry and ridicule. England could not be annexed ! Qreat Britain controls the destinies of others, and her strength and power can with stand the world! All this is very good, but we are now annexing her population at the rate of ten thousand a week. While this depletion is being made almost from the very region of her heart, we are propagating in her oolonies such principles as will finally turn their affections from her. Her hierarchy is now in danger. It is an excrescence upon the face of a civil government, and must slough off, and with it will fall all veneration for her aristocracy. Should this and her monarchy fall, and the reign of anarchy appear impend ing, the United States can be of great servioe to her statesmen and people. If we do not then annex her, her people will at least wish the barrier presented by the broad Atlantic could be removed, to admit of an alliance so mutually profitable. Bonks !?He is a funny nigger, and a good musician. While we write, he and his com rades are rehearsing some beautiful music at the Odd-Fellows' Hall, across the street. Our win dow looks right in upon them, and we hear every note they Bend forth. We have long known Bones. We danced to his music long years ago, on the shady side of the barn, and with bare feet. We admired Bones' music then, and we admire it now. It is a gladdening kind of music, and reminds us of the good old Bones, the veritable Bones, who used to purchase hap piness at so small a price. Poor old nigger! he worked well while daylight lasted, but al ways welcomed the shower that brought him rest, and the approach of night; but moBt of all, he welcomed Saturday night! Bones re ceived no wages, and seldom saw a Bmooth levy ; yet Bones was a happy man, and happy was the group of little boys who were so much amazed at the skill of poor old Bones. He played with the old rib-bones as with castanets. He is gone now, but, as we then thought, he was worthy of imitation; and so think all the admirers of the counterfeit Bones whom we now hear. He is much followed, and thousands sit delighted at the music of his rattle, while the delighted Bones, as of yore, grins a precious display of ivory, and makes all others laugh with him. It is innocent mirth, and he is still a good old fellow, is poor old Bones J m | To Preserve Peach Trees.?We clip the following from this morning's Intelligencer. Its author is known to us, and is an aged, intelli gent, and altogether reliable gentleman: " Clear the earth away immediately next to the trunk of the tree, down to near the root, and then place two or three lumps of unslacked 1 lime, each about the site of a goose egg, next to the tree, and cover it over with a little earth. It will eradicate the worm, and in a short time give vigor to the tree. The lime should be ap plied when the trees are young, but will answer as well for older trees, by increasing the quan tity of lime about one-third. From my expe rience, once in three or four years is all that is necessary to ensure a vigorous, healthy tree. 1 ??W. T." j Gold.?Greeley sometimes deals in precious metals, and he exhumes some of it when he says of gold : " It is well enough in its way; but if our people who have wandered to Cali fornia in search of it could have been induced to devote their energies at home to the produc tion of iron instead, the country would have been far more prosperous and happy than it is." Immense Store.?The splendid marble dry goods establishment of A. T. Stewart & Co., N. Y., was opened in its full extent yesterday. It is described as the most beautiful and costly build ing ever erected for such a purpose. It is five stories high, and extends from Reade to Cham bers street, fronting one hundred and fifty-one feet on Broadway. It fronts one hundred feet on Chambers street, and its length in Reade street is one hundred and twenty-seven feet. There are also large vaults beneath the street, two hundred and seventy-eight feet in length, well lighted by numerous gratings, and so well finished that it is difficult for a visiter to realiie that he is under ground. Below these, and ex tending under the whole building, are vast eel- | lars, stored with goods not required for imme diate sale. The average value of stock in the store is upward of two millions of dollars. Vocal Music.?Mr. Kemmerer has returned to our city after a most successful southern tour. He has been highly praised in the papers of the southern cities, and much good is said to have resulted from his labors. His plan is excellent, and very gratifying as well as im proving to the children who attend his instruc tion. See the advertisement. Silvbr Mike 11* Jefferson Cocntt, Va.? The Charlestown Spirit of Jefferton of yesterday says: ?' A short time since we noticed the discov ery of a silver mine on the land of the Messrs. McSherry, on the eastern side of the Shenan doah river, at the base of the Blue Ridge. Since that time, Messrs. Wm. Medler and Geo. W. Cleveland have taken the trouble to have the ore or quart* tested by competent persons. We can state, from our own observation, that the rock or quart* at this place is very abun dant." The certificates of M. B. Pyne, G. R. Haeiss, ! and Samuel Steel are here given. They say the ' ore presented to them is silver, and contains j ?? nothing to prevent its being pure." The | ?? Spirit" adds: " We have also conversed with Dr. Eichel berger, of this town, who has tested the qual ity of the ore, and he says that the yield is about seventy per cent, silver. We learn that the owners of this mine intend commencing operations in a very short time. Of the suc cess of the enterprise we shall keep our readers advised." ^ Death or Mas. Crittsndrn.?We regret to learn by a telegraphio despatch from Louis tUto, dated the 8th, that Mrs. Critts*den, lady of the Attorney General, died at Prank fort on that day. LMt ?!????! or We copy from the New York 9m Mm fol lowing moount of the execution of Gan. Lopes. It differs in some respeots from aooounts already published: At the fatal hour Gen. Lopes vu brought | ont and aaoended the platform with a firm etep. His person was enveloped in a white shroud. The executioner then removed the shroud, and there stood the General in his Ml military uni form before the assembled multitude. His appearanoe was calm, dignified and heroio. Not a muscle quivered. He looked upon the ! preparation for death unmoved; his oounte uanoe changed not, and hia whole bearing was firm and manly. The executioner now removed his embroidered coat, his sash, oravat, and all the insignia of his military rank, in token of disgraoe. General Lopes, with his hands tightly bound. together in front, stepped forward, and in a | strong, clear voice, slowly spoke to those around i aa follows: 1 " I pray the persons who have compromised me to pardon me as I pardon them. " My death will not change the destinies of Cuba." [The exeoutioner, standing a little be hind, here interrupted him in an insulting tone, "Come, be quick, be quioL"] General Lopes, turning his head partly around, fixed his eye on the man, and said sternly, grit ting his teeth, "Wait, sir." He then continued: ?'Adieu, my beloved Cuba! Adieu, my brethren 1" The General then stepped baok, and seated himself on the stool; a priest with the crucifix and taper on one aide of him, the exeoutioner on the other. The collar was then placed around the priaoner's neck. The priest now placed the crucifix between the General's hands, and juat as he was in the act of inolining hia head to kias it, the executioner swung the fatal screw, and the head of the unfortunate man at the same instant dropped forward, touching the crucifix. He never moved again. There sat. the body of one of the bravest men that ever drew breath, but a moment ago alive, now a | ghastly corpse. The execution was conducted in the most orderly manner and in perfect silence. No shouting or any other exhibition of applause | was manifest. Whether this was the result of the news from New Orleans, or the express orders of the Captain-General, is not known. Immediately after the execution, Gen. Lopea's body was taken down and privately buried. The following paragraph from the New York Mirror, in relation to the execution of General Lopez, will be read with painful interest: <? We have conversed with a gentleman who stood within a few feet of Lopez at the time of his execution. He confirms the account of ] the bearing of the victim at the acaffold, and also describes the mode of death as being more instantaneous than hanging. Lopes mounted the platform with a firm step, dressed in white, looking haggard and sad beyond description. The life and soul of the man was already gone before the exeoutioner did his work. He was permitted to say a few words relating to himtelf only; and these were in effect that he 4 forgave | everybody and wished everybody to forgive him. That he died for his beloved Cuba.' He was then seated in a sort of chair, the collar was adjusted, and by the touching of a spring, the weight of two thousand pounds snapped the neck, and his hands, which he held clasped before him, fell upon his knees, the only motion that indicated death. His body remained four | hours, until his face became entirely blaok, ex posed to the burning heat of the sun, and the burning indignation of the multitude. From' this eye-witness of the soene, we learn that the reeling of hatred against ?the pirates' was in tense and universal among all classes ; so much so, that even the negroes who lifted the bodies of the victims into the hearse, at Atares, han dled them roughly ; and this gave rise to all the horrible stories of pott mortem insults and muti lations." New Mod* of Locomotion.?The New York Tribune tells us of a new style of carriage to be used on common roads and in the streets of the | city, to be propelled by the weight of a single man. The structure is firm, with driving wheels four feet two inches in diameter, with an elegant wire frame-work body, with seats for two persons over the front wheels, which are four feet in diameter. A speed equal to fif teen miles per hour can be easily attained, although it is designed to run but about ten miles per hour. This new carriage is the in vention of a well-known mechanic of New York, who proposes to make a publio exhibition in the streets sometime during next week, when the utility of this novel mode of locomotion i will be fully tested. Monument to Jenner.?It has been proposed to erect a Bronse Statue in London to Jenner, the great discoverer of vaccination; and it is further proposed, says the Boston Daily Adver titer, to aid the merited testimonial by contri butions to be raised in that city. Previous to this discovery, forty thousand persons died an nually in Great Britain with the Bmallpox, the most loathsome of all diseases. The benefits of the discovery made by Jenner are world-wide and incalculable. Hundred-fold Wheat.?We are indebted to Elliott's California Express for a sample of Cal ifornia wheat of the tallest kind. The head is about six inches long, and contains about one hundred kernels, most of them remarkably large and very plump. If the land in Califor nia will produce such grain as this, farming must be better business than gold-digging. [Botton Traveller. The first locomotive ever used in the United States is still in good running order on the Lit tle Schylkill railroad. It was built in Liver pool (England) by Edward Bury. At that time it was necessary to send a man from England to put the engine in running order on the road. It was but twenty years ago that Edward Bury's engine was placed upon our road. Thi Apalachicola Flood.?Speaking of the late storm, the Journal and Mettmger says: " By a gentleman from Apalachicola, we learn that that city is now a heap of ruins. The tide rose some ton or twelve feet in the streets, washing away many buildings, and most of the others were unroofed by the wind. The streets are filled with masses of rubbish, and fishes, and alligators, so as to render the atmosphere most insufferable. Several lives were lost." Mexican Senators Imprisoned.?The Rio Bravo says that the Mexican government has adopted proceedings against several Senators, including General Almonte, and other efficers, under an old Spanish law of 1813. These gen tlemen have been fined, some of them sent to the prison of Perote, others dismissed, and the house of General Almonte entered, and property removed to pay a fine, by a file of armed men. He complains loudly of abuse and outrage, and a good deal of public feeling seems to bo excited. Deep and angry disoontent appears to pervade all parts of Mexieo. Lamartinb, it is stated, received ?8,000 for his " History of the Restoration," XI,000 for each volume. Madame Lamartine is said to be the translator of the work into English TELEGRAPHIC. Momu, 8opt 6 We oontinue to reoeive the moat disastrous sooounts of the gale in Florida. At Apalachioola, property to a very large amount has been destroyed, and the place wears a most gloomy aspect. Off the harbor a Bpauish man-of-war was stranded, and several lives were lost. | Navr Oeliass, Sept. 5.?The U. 8. steamer J Vixen sailed from Pensaoola on the 8d instant, to blockade the mouth of the Mississippi, nud intercept any expedition that may attempt to leave with a view of invadiDg Cuba. The Vixen has been lying at Pensaoola for several days past, undergoing repairs, but the pressing na ture of her orders has compelled her to leave without finishing them, and but one of her boil-1 ers is fit for use. ^ The large and beautiful five-story brick build ing, at the oorner of 8eventh street and Louisi ana avenue, has, since the completion of its walls, been the subject of universal admiration. We do not think that it has ever boen surpassed by any similar building in this city, in either materials or workmanship. Yet, from the im perfect oharaoter of the ground upon which the northern portion of it stands, or other cause, a depression has become apparent that threatens serious results. It is not indeed impossible that from a fourth to a third of the Seventh j street front will have to be removed and rebuilt. We are perhaps over-cautious concerning such things; but it haB occurred to us that the at tention of the Mayor should be given to tho present condition of this wall. The contractors will no doubt use the best possible means to overoome the mishap, but they have no power to prevent the usual thoroughfare while thus engaged. The Cuban Invasion.?That the Captain General had no legal right to execute the Amer ican citizens taken in arms in Cuba, that Lopez was seduced into the invasion of the Island by officers high in position in the Spanish army, and that Concha was cognizant of this strata gem, are facts that we firmly believe will be established before the world. There is a spirit of joy abroad at this moment in relation to the defeat and execution of these men, but Mr. Fillmore doet not participate in it.' Thb Campbkll Minstrels, at Odd-Fellows' Hall, have had full houses this week, and have made "apalpable hit," as young Osrick would say. _ One Captain Db Ahna, so styled, called at our office on Monday evening, and pledged himself to a gentleman present, in the ab sence of the editor, to enter suit against us for libel. We shall be pleased to hear more about this suit, or from any gentleman disposed to back up this personage in a demonstration. Thb Hungarians.?Captain Bricb, Captain Lichtenstein, and Captain Bukovitz, late of the Hungarian army, are now in this city as delegates from one hundred and twenty-eight Hungarians who lately arrived from Shumla. We learn that they have been directed by Kos suth to advise with Mademoiselle Jagiello (now Mrs. Tochman) about the means of reaching the oolony wnich General Ujhazi formed in Iowa, where they all propose to settle. There are fifteen Hungarian ladies with them, all married. The delegates were yesterday in troduced by Major and Mrs. Tochman to the President, and cordially received by him. In answer to their salutations, the President ex pressed his satisfaction that they and their leader Kossuth have chosen this country for their home, and assured them that they will find friends wherever they may settle.
