Thoy say that tho Insurgent loaders failed to keep certain promises mado to them, nnd they arn willing to testify against the promoters of tho Smith expedition. Tho testimony of tho Chilians covers all tho details nt tho AtiKtist expedition of the vessel. Tho Smith Is said to hao left a point on the southeastern coast of Florida, having on board npartvof men bound for Cuba, among whom iwcro tho Chilians, and to bavo met another ves sel a fow miles off tho coast.

Havana, Jan. 3. Tho town of Camajuanl, Santa Clara province. Is In a state ot anarchy, Itobbery and assassination by the Bpanlsh guer rilla forces havo been Incessant there sjneo Doc. 21. The military commander, far from trying to prevent tho crimes of these Irregular troops. Is said to encourage them. The fact Is that tho gucrrilleros are disgusted over tho adoption of autonomy, and wish to terrorize tho Autonomists residing In tho town, and especially the nowly nppolnled Mayor, Soflor Galvan, who belongs to that party. Several gucrrilleros In civilian dren have shotpcaceful Inhabitants In the streets, and overy night they attempt to assault the Mayor In his house. The Mayor has posted armed men In bis restdenco, and Is ready to repol any nttack. Meanwhllo ho has sent word to Gen. Dlancoof tho gravity of the situation. Tho guerrillas of Camajuanl havo had a wide reputation for cruelty ever since tho last war. They nro tho principal raldors of Cubtn hos pitals in the province and the torrorof paclftcos and Cuban women. Tholr lcadors belong to tho uncompromising Fpanlsh party, the Union Con stltuclonal, and when Gen. Weyler was reeallod they threatened the Government with a mili tary revolt If tho sanguinary Captain-General w as not again placed tn office. There Is a strong sentiment among many Spaniards In Havana In favor of the Spanish Government making an attompt to confer with the Cuban leaders concerning a basts ot peace. Up to this timo tbo several commissions sent to tho Cuban camps havo been oxpectod either to bribe tho Insurgents or to propoao to them to surrender to Spain, accepting tho autonomy granted by Sngnsla. Hut no offer has bcon made to the Insurgents to glvo a bearing to tholr own conditions of peaco and their objec tions to the new rdgimr. It is said that .Sctinr Arttiro Amblard, who refused a portfolio in tho now Cabinet, and who was one of tho principal lenders of tho Spanish Itcformlsts, is of the opinion that nutonomy ought to hno boon offered, not to theAuton onilstR residing In Havana, who never In their lives bnd shown any Intention to revolt against Spain, no matter how many vexations thoy had Bulfcrcd. but to thoso who ure In the Held, and on whoso acceptance or refusal of Spain's ad vances peaco wholly depends. It Is even said that Captnln-Gcncral Illnnco has cabled to Madrid expressing hts view that tho Autonomists havo no influence to induce tho Cuban Army to cease fighting, out, on tho contrary, they irritate tho patriots still further against Spain. llut if Scflor Amblard and Spaniards who think Hko him are right In believing that tho present plan for pacifying tho Island is nonsonso, they nre, on lly other hand, wholly deceived If thev he any Tiopo that direct offors to the In surgents would bo better rcceHed. A new proof ot this, In addition to tho many declarations from Gens. Gomez and Garcia and other prominent Cuban leaders, is tho proclamation just Issued by Gen. Francisco Carrlllo, second in command in tho province of Santa Clara, who has invaded the province of Mntanzas with a force of 1,'JOO cavalry. Carrillo Bays that oven autonomy as liberal ns that ot Canada would not bo ncceptcd by the Cubnns In nrms. " Wo dcslro only Inde pendence," ho says. "We are shedding our blood now and wo are ready to shed tho last drop If only the cursed SDnnlsh flag, which represents so many crimes ot Spain and so many sufferings ot our country, may bo seen in Cuba no more." The i evolution is stronger than ever In tho province of Plnar del ltlo, and the tobacco planters pay heavy taxes to tho patriots. A few who thought thoy might grind sugar enno without paving tho tax havo had tholr farms destroyed. Gen. Gomez continues to forbid tho grinding of sugar cane, in spite ot tho many ap peals sent to him. It Is, nevertheless, said to day that in some parts of the provinces of Mn tanzas and Havana, w herovcr tho patriots most need resources, ho has allowed certain sugar es tate owners to grind upon paying 40 cents for each bag of sugar they make.
