(Ifllrlal Ta lh-esldent of the Cuban Junta
Held In 10,000 Ball.
Our despatch from New York yesterday after
noon announced tills surprising action of the U.
8. officiate. Tbe Evening Telegram, of that
city, under the head of "War on Cuba A
Crowning Infamy The United States Fighting
Freedom," says:
The United States, through It officials in
this rity, has again covered Itself with infamy,
in aiding the spies of Spain against the strug
gling Cubans. Yesterday the Grand Jury of the
Circuit Court found an indictment against Jose
Morales Lemus, the supposed President of the
Cuban Junta in this city; Jose M. Basora, John
II. Lamar, Jose More, Colonel William A. C.
Kyan, Francisco Fescr, and Mariano Alvarez.
A benh-wnrrant was issued by Mr. I'ierrepont
and placed in the hands of the Marshal for ser
vice. The charge is that these parties did on
Hay 1 begin a- certain military expedition,
to le carried on from the Southern District
of New York against the territory of the
foreign State of Spain, which said foreign
Stale of Spain then, and now is, at peace with
the United States. The contemplated arrest of
the parties was kept vory quiet until 6 o'clock
last evening. Deputy Marshal Allen and other
officers seized Colonel Kyan on liroadway and
run him to Ludlow Street Jail. Other olUcera
arrested later in the evening Scnnr Lasona and
Scnor Mora, who were also hurried to the prison.
The friends of these gentlemen learned nothing
of the arrest until a late hour, when those not
secured made it convenient to avoid the Marshal's
dcrtutiea. At 2 o'clock to-duv the prisoner were
Hill the guests of the Warden at Ludlow Street
Jail, but it Is expected will this afternoon be re
leased upon nail. i
J President Lemtis was finally admitted to hall

1 he Excitement In WaMhington Over the Arrest.
Says a despatch to a New York journal from
The news of the arrest of the Cuban Envoy
nnd Junta in New York created considerable
surprise in official and diplomatic circles here.
Ti e Department of State seems entirely Ignorant
on the subject. The first intelligence Secretary
Fish had of It was communicated to him this
afternoon by your correspondent. Mr. Ruis,
Secretary to the Cuban Envoy, who is now here,
was also ignorant of the misfortune of his com
patriots until informed of it from the same source,
Mr. Fish seemed a little bewildered, but asserted
that he knew nothing of the proceeding,
and that no orders bad gone from the State De
partment for the arrest of the parties. Your
correspondent next proceeded to the residence
of the Spanish Minister, but he seemed to have
an inkling of what was going on ia New York,
and did not manifest any surprise at the news.
It is probable that ho bid a despatch from New
York announcing the fact earlier In the day.
He seemed in good humor, and, shrugging his
shoulders, said he supposed they had -been in
dicted by the Grand Jury of New York and
arrested for a breach of the neutrality laws.
The Cuban sympathizers here shrewdly suspect
that the visit of the Spanish Minister to
New York last week had something to
do with the arrest of the Cuban
Junta and envoy. He was in New York
for several days, and It is thought got some of
his friends to go teefore the Grand Jury and
make affidavit against the Cubuus, which has
resulted in their arneet. M. Huis, as soon as he
learned toe news, immediately telegraphed cer
tain friends of the cause in New York with a
view of ascertaining the particulars. He then
repaired to the residence of Secretary Fish for
the purpose of holding a consultation with him.
The Secretary informed him, as he had pre
viously stated to your eorrespovdont, that he
knew nothing of the matter. The action of the
United States authorities in Xew York is uni
versally condemned here, and tbe sympathies of
the people are more than ever with the Cuban
Mr. Ruts received a -despatch this evening
from New York stating unatull the Cubans who
had been arrested were released on bail.
An Editorial fMuiuestC.
Bays the New York Herald editorially: "The
Indignity which has been heaped by a public
arrent upon the Minister of a young American
republic, duly accredited to our overnment to
nsk for. that recognition which the march of
events and the flash of its own patriotic arms
have entitled it to. and which our own antece
dents and national policy both unre us to grant,
E laces in a strong and offensive light the vacil
ition of the Government, and the hesitation
and timidity of the Secretary of State.
Mr. Morales Lemus may not, under tho
strict interpretation of the law, be
entitled to the privileges of an ambassador, in
asmuch as the United States has not officially
recoguized the existence of the Cubau republie;
hut his credentials are well known at the State
Department in Washington, the great events by
which they are supported are of public notoriety,
and it has been the hesitancy and the delay of
the Secretary himself, who, under the pressure
of his timid appreciation of European complica
tions, has preventedthe extending to him of the
official recognition to which ho is entitled, and
which the great heart of the country nas long
since conferred."

Correspondence from Havana, dated June 12,
An affecting account has been received here as
to what happened between the Americans and
the Cuban patriots who received the former at
the Bay of Nipe. The Cubans were commanded
by Don Julio Grave de Feral ta. When the two
bodies of troops came together, the Cubans
could not contains themselves, but rushed into
the arms of their American brothers and warmly
embraced. Cheers upon cheers were then given
for the liberty of the Cubans. Many tears stood
in the eyes f the now hardened warriors when
they first realized that some people at least In
Ue Vet JTMte were extending to them prac-
tlcal sympathy. The greatest harmony exl-tts
between the two armies, ami the expeditionary
party were pleased with the appearance of their
Cuban comrades. Each pledged to the othur,
time and again, their determination to succeed.
The Landing mt TrMtn frem America.
News comes from Sautlago de Cuba to the
eff ect that a rumor was in circulation mention
ing that two steamers had disembarked troops
at the port of Malaquerta. This is not far from
Minate. The insurgents now have near Holqnin
about tiOOO men. These are commanded by
Generals . Marrano and Marmol. At Ramon,
Figuredohas 2000 troops. Near Puerto Principe
the insurgents number 12,000, and tbe forces
that met Navldad at Arvcsserado were In num
bers about 2000. This does not include the
many others situated in other localities under
tbe other generals. Intelligence has been re
ceived here directly from Cespedes of really
good Import for the insurgents. This Informa
tion is sent to-day to the Junta in New York.
All the expeditions have been safely landed,
nnd, excepting one or two cannon, nothing has
been lost beside two boxes of shoes.
The Pelayo carried up 150 men to Mayarl, and
Eueeta has been ordered there also. The latter
had been ordered to go to Bayamo, but was
compelled to turn back two or three times. He
had met with many difficulties en route to the
latter place principally; these were occasioned
by the obstructions placed in the road by tho
rebels. At one time there appeared to be a sort
of insurrection among his troops; they became
disgusted, and to settle matters, liuceta ordered
some of them to be shot. The roads were very
bad because of the increasing rains. In a letter
from Santiago, dated May 28, some cruel acts of
the Spaniards arc recounted. An oltlcer in the
Insurrectionary corps, named Pedro Acosta, had
an Interesting family, near that city, consisting
of a wife and two sons. They were put to death
by the Government troops; the bo3s were quite
young. A negro was also murdered by tho
Spaniards under shocking circumstances.
Cuban Victory.
Havana, June 12 The Cherub, British man-
of-wns, which came in last evening, brings the
intelligence of a severe battle fought near Las
Tunas, between 5000 of the Government troops,
under Ferrer, and some 8000 patriots. The
patriots are reported to have won tho victory.
A relation of Donato Marmol has been killed,
notlDonato Marmol himself, as has been re
ported The Spaniards also report the death of
Bouickc, who was In the ranks of Ferrer.
Another expedition has successfully landed in
the neighborhood of Barracoa. I shall give you
full details via Baltimore.

A Crazy Frenchman Outw Off Ills Daughter
A shocking murder was committed recently
at Lcvallols-Perret, France, by a lunatic, on
his own daughter, aged eighteen. The man, a
dyer,' named Dubois, residing at Cllchy, had
only a few days before come out of an asylum
where he bad been for three months under
treatment. Having expressed a desire to take
a walk, he started with the young woman in the
direction of the Seine, and while crossing
a field of wheat bordering the river.
h e took a knife from his pocket
and cut her throat. The cries of the daughter
were heard by two workmen at a factory close
by, and they hastened to the spot, but arrived
too late to save the victim, as the father had
almost severed the head from her body. Tho
murderer then ran to the Seine aud threw him
self into the water, but on sceimr a boataDDroach
he swam ashore, and was secured. Dubois
replied in an lncoherenf manner to the questions
put to mm, and was - evidently insane; lie had,

Terrible Mining Accident.
A terrible accident occurred in tho coal mines
of Butsch, Dickson & Anderson, at Brazil, In
diann, on Monday. Tbe mine is entered from a
shaft with a steep grade. Three men were at
work excavating across a passage about 200
yards irom the entrance, out concealed by a
curve, in noistine up a car load ot coal, tne strap
hitching the mule to tho car gave way when
near the entrance, and the heavy car descended
tne grade at a tcartui speed, giving tne miners no
warning, or chance to escape. Joseph Grugen
was struck by the car and jammed between it
and the wall and instantly killed. The top of
bis nead was taken ott. i ne obstruction over
turned the car, and the coal was thrown upon
Joseph Jacobs, who was also struck by the car
and fatally injured; the third man escaped with
a few bruises. Grngen and Jacobs were Bel
gians, and were working in the mine for the
first time. The former has a wife and two chil
dren in Belgium, and the latter was supporting
two children of a deceased brother.
Maaaacre of a Caravan. .
The Independent, of Constantina, contains an
account of the massacre of a Tunisian caravan
on French territory. Commercial relations were
opened -about a year ago between Guefsa, in the
Regency, and iebessa, in Algeria, the merchants
of the former place sending oil, carpets, etc.,
and receiving in exchange corn and printed
cotton stuffs. Last month a caravan, com
posed of twenty-six Arabs, a woman, and
three Jews, all lumsians, with about nity
camels or asses laden with merchandise or
specie of the value of 50,000 francs, were return
ing to (iuefsa, and had arrived within six hours
march of the frontier, when they were attacked
by one hundred nnd fifty horsemen of the Alge
rian tribe of Nemcnehas, headed by three Calds.
The Tunisians did not resist, but were, never
theless, cruelly put to death, with the exception
of the Jews and the woman, who escaped
wounded. The animals and their burden were
carried off, and the Calds not only openly boast of
this massacre, but one of them, named Ben All,
subsequently received a sum of 250 francs from
the father of the Jew killed to restore tho body
for interment.
A " communicated" note since sent to
the above-named journal by the Government of
Algeria explains the outrage bytatlng that the
Nemenchas were greatly irritated by a rumor
that the Tunlaan tribe of Hammamas were pre
paring to again invade their territory; during
the last two years .different irruptiens had cost
tbe former not less than Si men, 787 camels,
and 8700 sheep; when still under the impres
sion of tills fresh provocation, the Nemenchas
had accidentally met the caravan, which hap
pened to be composed of a fraction of the tribe
of Hammamas, and had accomplished this sum
mary act of vengeance.
flanrt af Quarter Heaatoaa Judge Ludlow.
Mary Willis, a little girl of twelve summers,
pleaded guilty to live sepsratecbargea of larceny. It
apiieared that the child had entered a number of
families as servant,, and from each stole some
valuables and ran away. At one place she took a
ten-dollar note, which she spent for trifles ; at
another a gold watch, which she gave away, and so
on, apparently without any other motive than a love
for pilfering, which seemed almost a mania.
The attention of the court was engaged this morn
ing with Uie trial of Frank King, a young silver
smith, upon the charge of larceny as bailee. On the
part of the prosecution It was alleged thatlu April
one Mr. Davis left a gold watch with the defendant
to be put Into (salable order, aud sold If a certain
price could be obtained. The repairs were made
and a sale negotiated by the defendant, but the
terms not pleasing the prosecutor he objected to the
sale, and demanded his watch, and King ottered him
one which was much Inferior to his own aud refused
to civs him any other. .
The defense set forth tost the watch which was
tendered was the identical one that had been left to
be repaired aud sold. Evidence of gool character
was also offered. On trial.

Trkascry Department, .lone 15, 1809. Tho
provisions of chapter 6, section 1, articles 88, 89,
90, etc., of revised warehouse regulations of Oc
tober 30, 18C8, In relation to transportation and
exportation of goods, wares, and merchandise
to the Dominion of Canada, are hereby extended
to goods, wares, nnd merchandise imported into

scribed in said regulations, will be allowed at
the ports of Portland, Boston, and New York,

blished lines of railroad,- so far as they may ex
tend to the said "port of Pembina, where tho
merchandise finally leaves tho United States.
The route by which such transportation is to
be made should bo distinctly specified in the
entry by the exporter. The Collector at rcm-
blna will be very careful to see that the re
quirements of article 94 of said regulations are
strictly carried out before Issuing certificates of

market. The steaiusr has since been lying
at; Grand Junction wharf In a very quiet
manner, giving no outward sign of anything
irregular in the movements aboard, and appa
rently the public had no cause of suspecting her
business here to be other than that of a
purely mercantile character. Yesterday, however,
some Information was given to the Haytien Chasge

to detain the seamen, on the ground that she was

matter, owiug to their temporary absence from the
city. In the meantime the steamer had escaped.

FKNIAN PRISONERS Mr. Tlgott, of the Dublin
Irishman, who recently visited tho Fenian prisoners
in Kngfund, draws a fearful picture of the sufferings
which they are forced to endure. The most
barbarous nation would shrink from the long con
tinuance of such tortures. O'Donovaa (Uossa) Is
sii tiering from severe pain in the back, from the
hard labor which he is forced to perform. For
thirty-Cve days he was kept iu a dark cell, with his
hunds manacled behiud his back. He was not re
leased to take his thin "porridge," which was left on
the floor of the cell, and he had to lap it up like one
of the lower animals. Captain McClure, a native
born Anierlcun cltiuen, who fought bravely In de
fense of the Union, has not been allowed to com
municate with any friend In America. He has been
so reduced by the cruel Jail discipline that be fainted
while lu conversation with Mr. llgott, Charles
Underwood O'Connell, who Is also an American
citizen, Is completely shut out from all communica
tion with hi friends, and is In a deplorable state of
nervousness and debility. If our Government de
cline to use its Influence forthe release of Its citi
zens, It should see that while held as prisoners
they are treated in a Immune and civilized manner

Carswcll's nlnht-dress and the clothlnc she had
just taken off, lying near. Knvclopod in flames,
she ran screaming into the entry communicating
with her room, where her father immediately

the poor girl, but the physicians pronounced her
case a nopciofs one irom tne first, sno lingered
on from the time of the accident until about 10
o'clock this morning, when deatli put an end to
her sufferings. During a great part of the time
she lived after the accident she was entirely un
conscious, and was doubtless thus saved from
much of the anguish she would otherwise have
suffered. Her body and hands were most
severely burned, and her person, except her head
and fect, was one mass ot scorched flesh. 4

years old, In tho full bloom of early womanhood,
