lust aeoouuts they were nearly ready to cross
the border. The government had takemthe
necessary steps to repulse them.

London, May 20.—Tho elections in France
continue to he attended with more or less dis
order. Since the 12th inst. 149 persons havo
been arrested in Paris tor creating political
disturbances, and ot these only 17 have been
discharged. A popular demonstration is re
ported at Mines, where the ]ieople sang the
“Marseillaise.” At Bourgcs the prison was

Havana, May 20.—Tho reports of tho taking
of fillibusters, which are in circulation, cauuot
li>< traced to any authentic source.
No expedition has landed near Sagua. The
steamer Salvador has gone to some other point.
It is impossible for expeditions to effect a land
ing at any point on the coast between Havana
and Ncuvitas, as the Spanish cruisers are very
numerous all along that lino, and in auy other
part of the island it would be difficult for ex
peditions to find a foothold, owing to the
watchfulness of tho Government.
Sympathizers with tho revolution cofnplain
of Admiral Hoff’s dispatches published in the
New York papers, hut the intelligence given
in these dispatches is as reliable and correct as
can possibly lie obtained under the circum
stances, and can he objected to only because it
discredits the exaggerated reports which are
set afloat by Cuban partizans. Admiral Hoff
enjoys the unlimited confidence of the Ameri
can residents here.
The report is officially confirmed that the
rebels have burned the town of Manicaragua.
The Babivilla Railroad is again in running
New York, May 20.—Tho Herald’s Havana
correspondence of the 15th inst. gives the in
telligence that the Republic of Cuba has bean
formally established by a Congress held nt
Guirnaro, a small town of tho Central Depart
ment of the island, about twenty leagues east
of Puerto Principe. Don Carlos Manuel. Ces
pedes was elected President of the Republic
and Gen. Manuel Quesada Commander-in
chief of the forces. Don Francis V. Aqnil
lera has been appointed Secretary of State
and War.
The following is the proclamation of Presi
dent Cespedes:
To the People of Cuba :
' Compatriots—The establishment ot a free
Government in Cuba, on tho basis of demo
cratic principles, was the most fervent wish of
ray heort. Tho effective realization of tills
wish was, therefore, enough to satisfy my as
pirations and amply repay the services which
jointly with you 1 may have been able to de
vote to the cause of Cuban indepeudencc. But
the will of my compatriots has gone far beyond
this by investing me with the most honored ol
all duties, the supreme majestracy of the Re
public. I am not blind to the great labors re
quired in the exercise of the high function
which you have placed ia my charge in these
critical moments. Notwithstanding tho aid
that may he derived from the other powers of
tho State, I am not ignorant of the grave re
sponsibility which I assume in accepting the
Presidency of our new-boru Republic. I know
that my weak powers would lie far from being
equal to the demand if left to themselves alone.
But this will not occur—and this conviction
fills me with faith in the future. In the act of
lieginning the struggle with the oppressor,
Cuba lias assumed the solemn duty to consum
mate her independence or perish in the at
Ismpt; and in giving herselt a Democratic
government, she obligates herself to become
Republican. This double obligation, contract
ed in the presence of free America, before a
liboral world, and what is more, before onrowu
conscience, signifies our determination to be
heroic aiid to bo virtuous. Cubans! on yonr
heroism I rely for the consummation of our in
dependence, and on your virtue I count to con
solidate the Republic. You may count on my
abnegation of self.
Carlos Manuel De Cespedes.
Gen. Quesada issued a proclamation to the
Cnban army, on taking command, closing as
“The tyrant Valmazeda rambles, with the
incendiary torch and the homicide knife, over
the fields of Cuba. He has never doue other
wise; but now he adds to his crimes the still
greater one ot publishing it by a proclamation
which we can only describe by pronouncing it
to be a proclamation worthy of the Spanish
government. Thereby our property is men
aced by fire and pillage. This is nothing. It
threa'ens us with death, and this iB nothing;
but even our mothers, wives, daughters and
sisters are menaced with resort to violence.—
Ferocity is the valor of cowards.
I implore you, sons of Cuba, to reoolloct at
.all hours tho proclamation of Valmaseda.—
That document will shorten the time necessa
ry for the triumph of our cause. That docu
ment is an additional proof of the character of
our enemies. Those beings appear to bo de
prived ot those gifts which nature has conceded
to the irrationals, tho instinct of foresight anil
of warning. We have to struggle with ty
rants, always such, the very same ones of the
inquisition, ot the Spanish conquest and of
dominian in America. Iu birth and in death
the livo and succeed tho Torquemadas, the
the Pizzaros, the Boves, tiie Murillos, the Ta
eons, the Conchas and the Valmasedas. We
havo to combat with the assassins of old wc
meii and of children, with the mutilators of
the dead, with the idolaters of gold.
. Cubans, il you would save your honor and
that of your families; if you would conquer
forever your liberty, he soldiers! War leads
yon to peace and to happiness. Inertia pre
eipilates you to misfortune and to dishonor.
Viva Cuba! Viva the President of tho Repub
lic! Viva the Liberating Armyl Patria and
Liberty 1 Manuel Quesada.
