The Reformed Protestant Church of America is a ranch of the original Protectant Church ol Holland, and its first establishment antedates that of any of the other branches of the Presbyterian Church by nearly a century. It was until within a few years past known as "the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church," to distinguished from the Reformed Church, which ib of Swiss origin. The present General Synod Is made up of ice dele rates,; the largest representations being from the ttate of New York and the northern part of New Jersey, where the denomination, comprising within it folds the greater number of the descendants of the old Knickerbockers, is the strongest.

Vrom tin H ilmiilifttiii I'viiitUt iviaL Tlie Mitldlotown 'Jruivmpt In an elaborate defense of the whipping-post and earnest protest against the 'sickly sentimentality, wnicn opposes mat institu tion, says: We have contended that the whipping-post is less severe than confinement; consequently more humane - ens barbarous. It is notorious that, tun puniKiiment. is not commensurate with tne criniesagainstsooiety which it is designed to check. Tne culprit lakes his Hogging, and bountis away atittr it a- light as a feather, laughing or whittling and dancing lot he goes, and seemingly caring but little for the infliction." Here js food for thought whipping Is not a pun ishment "commensurate with the crimes it is tic- signed to check." Then it fails to answer tho pur pose. It doesn't check those crimes. The culprit cares "but little for the infliction." Then why keep up such an Infliction : lie hounds away, laughing, whistling, dancing, -as light as a leather!" Why, then, these culprits are only maiung a spore 01 us ami our laws ami our s lerltls and our cat-o-nine- lails.

Wasiiinoton, June 2 A movement was darted iinionp; the Southerners rcHidinir here to decorate the graves of tlie Confederate dead buried at Arlington, the day to be set apart as was done in the case of Union soldiers last Saturday. Dr. Gamett, a leading Southern sym pathizer during the Reltellion, is out in a card this morning, stating that, after inquiry, lie is satisfied that Bitch a demonstration would not be permitted by tlie Govarument. Gamett says that the interference of marines with persons who attempted to decorate the Confederate graves hist Saturday was fully countenanced by both President (irant and Secretary Boric. At the W hite House. There was an unusually large crowd at the White House to-day, composed of all sorts of persons. They were drawn together by tho an nouncement that tlie President would leave to morrow for Annapolis, and shortly after for West Point. Everybody seemed anxious to have their little business with the Executive fixed before his departure. Among those who called was the Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, but the President sent word that he was too busy to see him. During tho greater part of the morning he was closeted with Attorney-General Hoar. .Spain anil the I'nlled Statrn. It is ascertained in semi-ollieial circles that the statement made by Secretary of Legation Perry that war was imminent between the United States nnd Spain in 18t3 is without foundation, and also that Spain was co-operating with Napo leon for the success of tho Confederacy. The misfortune of the statement is that at the date mentioned the downfall of the Confederacy was conceded by every enlightened politician iu Europe, and the studied policy of nou-iiiterfe-rcneo was adopted. Appointment. The President to-day made tlie following ap pointments:. L. Brown, Collector of Inter nal Revenue, Twenty-third district, Pa. Postmasters Kdson W. Lyman, Fairburg, Illinois; Ed. J.

Anllii iilic Iteiiocls of the Nnccesw of Klwlit l. licdiliiiiiM to Aid I he I'ulriulti -Tlicy Uecelve Tnrnlv Tlioiisiuid Kliuid ol Arms The New ('itiiiii-cncriil. The New York yvfaiincthis morning publishes the following important Intelligence: We have special and credible advices that, by means of seven or eight expeditious which have within a few months left .New tork ami rnuaiiei phia, the Cubans have received large and somewhat surprising qiinaiuies in anus aim iiiininmns tu war, The Cuban authorities here and iu Washington have, as we art! informed, been incessantly active, anil the result of their efforts Is seen in the animated hones uud renewed spirit of tho patriots in tho Held. On the strength of the recent help given to their cause, or promised them at no late day, tho campaign of Ueneral i;iiesada is be lieved to have assumed a new aspect, in proof of which am the scries of successes lately achieved for Cuba at Las Tunas, Altagracla, Habana, Nueva, tho Jlay of Mpe, and near 1'uerto j'aure, an oi which are claimed bv Ouesada's forces. Tho following Is an authentic list of the expeditions alluded to, aud their cargoes of military suiinlles: Hv the Salvador, from Kev West. l.'iOO arms untl three Held pieces. From Nassau, by the Name, 2t00 guns and 6 cannon, liy the I'errlt, suou guns and 8 cannon, liy the Urape sliol 4000 guns ami 2 cannon. These vessels origi nally u-it j;,. York, Those scut from Philadel phia In the first expedition therefrom wero three schooners, with Bfioo arms and four steel guns. This cargo was delivered near Trinidad on the 17th of April, and haa alraady. If report be credible, told witn effect on the situation In that greatly dlsaffecUHl quarter. The second expedition haI its landing at the same place with anoo guns in a small steamer. The third expedition has lust gone with 2.100 arms. Py these various expeditions the Cubans have r- ceivea Ki.iuo small arms ana rt cannon or nem- pleces. These supplies, received within a piriml comparatively brief, constitute tho most decided and extensive aid the Cubans have ever obtained. There Is reason to believe that the Cubans are pow erfully supported m a new and unexpected qnarter.of the character of which we are not permitted to speak. Their cause is not likely to fall, we under stand, for want of efficient sympathy on the part of the North. Never have the patriots of Cuba seemed so continent ot victory. We are favored with private advices from Tlavana representing the extreme corruption of the Spaniards mere, a nu tne venal lnuinerenoe or a niimocr oi their officials to the failure or snccess of the war. So gross had the avarice of these officials or officers become, that it was a matter of belief that they had privately soiti arms ana supplies oi ai Kinds to the enemy. Indeed, It m known to Cubans residents In New York, that the first supplies of arms, some thousands In number, received by the Cubans, were bougnt from the Spaniards themselves. Charges or reports of corruption are still common at tho capital, and in the rein. Not less insignificant is itie laei tnai rtpanisn papers betray a tone of concession to the rebels, one of them going so far as to admit that the rebellion iH gaining headway. The appointment to the Captain-Ucncramlup of Caballcro de Itoda is viewed by the Cuban authori ties here and In New York as a sign of I'ercer and more merciless hostilities on tho putt, of the mother country, lie Itoda Is an able and ptompt comman der, ana will assemble around him the worst and least scrupulous chiefs of the army, such as belong to the class of the duellist Kscalente. It is rxpe-.tetl that he will draw the reins tighter upon tho goaded Cubans, ami by conseuiience make the war more desperate ami unrelenting. Meanwhile, antl befote his arrival, the Cubans and their supposed liuliuster Ing allies will have gained needful headway.

Don Simon tie ;a Torre, our Gov ernor, returned here at the head of his column of :100 men, and announced to us that after the attack maoc on the insurgents at uanion. iitteen leagues from this place, the insurrection was completely put tlown; but the same paper, El llriiastar, which pub lished the oillclal despatch, had an editorial article, inspired ny one of tne onicersol tne expedition, in which It was said there hat) been no at tack whatever, because the insurgents, not being able to cope with 80 large a body of troops, and being In want of even powder, abandoned their camps. The column of General de la Torre, how ever, illtl not return to st, ,iago wttnout leaving behind signs of the most barbarous executions. Overseers of estates, white and black, who, fearing the order of Valtnaseda, hail re mained In their houses awaiting the arrival of the troops, were barbarously sacrificed. The number so killed amounted to twenty. Colonel Or- machea ordered the men to loiiow tne oamn. ami when they obeyed him he ordered them to be shot. The presence of De la Torre in St. Jago tie Cuba has been tne signal ror iresn executions. Don Dcllin Aguilera, who arrived with a safe conduct from Colonel Camara, was imprisoned, and, by the Insti gation of the Catalans was shot. He died like a hero. Four days after, a family of the name of A u ay a, well connected, consisting of a father and three sons, were also executed. These acts l ave given to the city a sepulchral air. Sorrow is seen in every race as wen as indignation. Retaliation by the Insurgent The Torch at v oru. The Insurgents have responded to these offenses against, civilization by executing a double number of the Spanish prisoners in their hands, and by burn ing uown tne properties or an tnoso wno m:gnr. give assistance to the Government. The most magnificent estates have heen a prey to fire, and every night we see from this city the immense glare produced ly these acts of incendiarism. All tne jurisdiction oi rst. .iago tie t.;una is untier tne military, but the soldiery cannot prevent these acts of revenge, and In order to give an 1ile:t of the secret means that are employed, 1 might tell you that a lew uigius ago eignt, nouses were burned down In Cobre close to a barrack of 600 S')i- piers. General tie la Torre had threatened to exe cute any proprietors who should give motley to the Insurgents to prevent the destruction of tneir pro perties. With this threat hanging over them they could not comply with the engagements; made with ine insurgents, this disappointment caused tne latter to commit depredations. On the oilier hand, the Spanish Government, also feeling the want of means, proposes to collect tho taxes In advance. nils is another cause inducing tile Hisui'ueins to de stroy property. Wlint in Looked Fcr. The recognition of Cuban Independence liy the Pulled states is anxiously looked for here, and pub he, opinion is complaining of the delay, since. It is argued, the United States have greater right to In- terlere here than franco had in Mexico, and the longer they withhold tneir assisiimce tho worse it will be as the end will be desolation. Annexation to the United Stuto is the ardent t'esire of the Cubans. The Arngo Transfers a Caro f Ammunition lit tut- Salvador Her "Arsenal'' Limited la (libit. A special despatch was received from Havana by the editors of the El Vroniita, which fully confirms the report as to the destination ami use of the Arago. The despatch, which embodies official and private information received oy tne spanisn Government in Havana, is to the effect that the Aiago and Salvador met on the coast of Cuba on the 10th of May, and that the former transferred a cargo of munitions of war to the Salvador, which subsequently succeeded in landing them in Cuba. The Salvador entered the Ray of Nipo on the 18tti instant, where her arms antl powder were conveyed. The two steamers Joined each other oil the Florida Keys. The he Arago subsequently proceeded to St. Thomas. where she still remains, and the Salvador, on enter ing Nassau her port after the landing of tho expe ditionswas seized for a violation ol the neutrality This despatch shows that the Arago is being used as a naval tender for other vessels (as in the case of the Perit) to land expeditions for Cuba INCENDIARISM.

The Kau Claire iMicU ) Free rrexn of May 24 says: "Last Thursday evening commenced the lirst of two of the most extensive conflagrations that ever occurred In this place, and was probably the work of Incendiaries, their object being evidently to burn the city. The tire brokeout in one of the unoccupied storerooms of Heed's Block, and so rapidly did It burn as to lap up all the wooden buildingsinclud ing Heed's residence on the entire square, with the exception of Drs. Galloway and l-angrell'soiiice, and two barns that were situated on the east side ol the block. For a long time it seemed as though the object of the lire would be accomplished, as it linally crossed Kau Claire street to Dr. Skinner's drug store, ami threatened to sweep unobstructed through a large section of wooden buildings, and no salt; con jecture could be formed of the linal arrest of the flames. Had it not been for the persisteut and un yielding efforts of the citizens ami river boys, who fought the lire till their clothes were scorched and faces blistered, there might have been no occasion for tho next attempt made two days later, which, we are sorry to say, proved much more extensive than tlid the lire of Thursday evening. "A repetition of tho previous attempt of tho incen diaries to burn the town was deeply feared by many of our citizens, who had but, to wait till Saturday evening, when the fears which they had entertained were lully realized. At alKiut 11-4S o'clock on the evening of the 22il the fire alarm was sounded, and the lire was found to emanate from the Chandler House barn, on Kelsey street, a locality which im mediately placed most of the business houses on llarstow street in Imminent danger of being burned, ami rendered those In the Immediate viciuity doubly certain of being destroyed. "Teams ami men were ousy all over the city haul ing goods out of reach of the lire, while many goods were carried across the Kau Claire bridge to the North Side for safety. Considerable stealing was in dulged In, antl In the heat of excitement many were seen with armfuls of goods making for the direction of the suburbs. A guard was established, aud posted on the different roada ami bridges leading out of town, aud a donen arrests were made during the mght, though the most of those arrested were found to puHHesg articles of plunder of ouly trifling value."

Mr. Verncy in quired what the policy of the Government would bo towards tho American colonics? Mr. Monell replied, and, whim declining to enter on the colonial policy of tho Government, intimated that a part of that policy was to throw the cost of sclf-dcfcnse ou each colony. Mea stires to that end had been pnrtially taken, mid would bo extended next your. He had no doubt that the nrranzomcnt for tho cession of tho Hudson Bay Company's territory "ouM receive tho ratification of tho Canadian Government. Tho jiiestion was not ono of purchase only, but also of development, of colonization and civilization, which had hitherto been virtually closed. If tho schemo w;t suecessful, tho Do minion would ho able to extend from tho Atlan tic to tho Pacific, lie believed all tho interests of British Columbia lay in annexation with Canada, and every facility would bo given to forward them. Mr. Northooto thought the Canadian were hettcr able to decide for thtnwelves than tu act on tho advice of tho Government, and ho be lieved tho qiwstiou would soon le satisfactorily settled. Mr. Bury regarded Canada as t'.ie ftitura liigh-w.-y to the Indies and the Ka&t, at.d ridiculed annexation to tho United States. Canada by such a course liadoverylhij, to IosjU and nothing to gain.

The elopement took place about two weeks ago, and about a week since Superintendent of Po lice Kennedy received a letter from the father of the young girl, Informing htm of the flight, and, as he had reason to believe they had come to Chicago, re questing him to loek after the young couple. Accompanying tho letter of the father to Superin tendent Kennedy la a photograph of his daughter. It represents a beautiful young girl, eighteen or nineteen years of ago, dressed in the height of -fashion.

Yesterday, as the morning advanced, ho began to sink, and it became evident that ho could not Ioiik survive. When he became uware that but a short, time was left him to remain on this earth, he turned to his companion, who has been performing with him under tilt; name cf Allue Le Favre, and said, "I do not fear to die ; 1 am too much of a man to fear death. All that, I dislike iu it is that all my prospects of seeing you great, die with me. Alme, if you marry at some future time, marry an honest man, no matter how poor he may he. ' He then then went on to say that lie wished to be united to her in legal bonds, that she might have whatever property might one day be coming to him. A marriage certificate was at once obtained from the County Clerk, a priest was sent for, and the two were united; ho culm and serious, she in agony of weeping and grief, it was a touch ing scene to look upon him lying pale ou his bed, the damp drops of coming death already beading hia brow ; to see the heart-stricken woman, tortured with grief, pledging her faith to one who, in a few minutes, would be past the mortal sphere; tn hear, In the silence of the chamber of death a silence interrupted at times bv the woman's sobs and moans of anguish tho solemn tones of the priest as he hastily read the solemn services of the Church, anil pronounced those joined who were so soon to be forever parted. The ceremony over, the last rites of tho Konian Catholic Church were ad ministered. A few more gasps, a little pressure of the bridal hand be held in his, one lunt glance upon her with his eye, and the victim of a murderer's blind, reckless deed passed away. The tragedy then became terrible. .The poor, desperate woman cast herself upon her knees, and raising up her hands, called In tones of piercing; sngulhh upon Heaven to blast, with all Its curses, the murderer who bad robbed her of all she held dear on earth. But this terrible scene Is too painful to dwell upon. The deceased, as is usual In his profession, did not put his real name upon the bills.
