The ' C'hinwe puzzle." now belore Con trress, in bard to solve by them, and this ariwa, not so much from its in trinsic difliculty as it connection with other matter to which its solution in a stateniuanlike manner is repugnant. The utmost that the Kdical taction professes its ability to do iu the way of helping the cordwaiuers of Massa chusetts is to enact a statute, affirma tive of existing laws, recognized as of binding force more than half a cen tury ago. 1 have frequently (perhaps t,..i'olUo) relerred to this point. After quoting from one ol my letters, a Northern newspaper comment upon Ir. Stewart's bill to render unlawful -servile labor" in this country, and sustain the viws expressed by me in the following significant terms: " Now, for the sake of argument only, assume that Mr. .- :..-!:. (the offeudlng master shoemaker of Bos ton) coutracted with these seventy live Chinamen in me Ohintwe Kujpirc . and that according to that contract they are to wcrk three years for a stipulated, sana. Upon their arrival in this couutry they are freemen free as the air of heaven aad if they see tit to break that contract there u no legal or other power to hinder them. T hty ci.uld quit work to morrow, if they saw tit, and the only redress Mr. Hampson would have would be through a civil action in the courts for damages m-casioned by their breach of contract. Beyond this" protection of common law, applicable to everybody, In would ii powerless. He could not seize lhe;t iiolies, neither could he compel them H ork lor him agaiiwt their will more than he could a com mon American citizen, in Uii illus tration 1 have taken the ground that the coa tract of Mr. Hampson was himI- iu China, but the fact is It ua not made in China, but in the L'nited Mates, and in the city of San Fran rise. Admitting to the fullest that the Radical faction is uuable to deal with tlais question it being in Uie condi tion of a party that can neither stand Htill, go forward, or retrace iu steps, without danger to its integrity aud that it can uot lawfully intermeddle in this matter at all, it might as well be told to those concerned that if the in fernal crew who govern the country were earnest and sincere iu their pro fessions of a desire to help the me chanics of Boston to rid themselves of the influx ot Chinese operatives, they would stand in no liar whatever iu doing it, of violating the Constitution of the couutry. If they were as anx kus to favor mo workingmen, in this emergency, as they have ever been to violate the iuudameutal law fo aoi-om-plish their seltish part' and private ends, there would be no difficulty in applying an infallible remedy. Suppose, for example, that Con grras, in its plenitude of power,should enact a Jaw taxing Sampson, the Phil listiiies, anil all others who employ the Chinese, at so much a head lor every Chinaman they employ, mak ing "the tax o exorbitant that it Would be impossible, at a cent a shoe, to engage them, could any one doubt that precedent could be furnished abundantly lor such legislation? Would it he a clearer violation of the t (institution, or the aeknowledgtid common right- of mankind, that tht whole system of internal and external taxation under which the country is now laboring with uaaccuuitaMc pa tience? Tht-re might be a shorter cut fsflll. 1 don't here reler to the subterfuge of l'aganisiu, and so on, for I tnjlieve it could be made clear enough that it would be more economical, as well as more effective, to bring the "Pagans" iiere, iu order to "convert" tlium, than te employ expensive " mission -arit-s" to built them up in foreign countries, under disadvantages; but I have direct allu-ion to the p wer in herent i i the Nabob presiding at the White ilou-e, whoever he may now--dyi be for the dine being, to ex pell from the country whoever may aaapteaaT1 hint, or his lrieuds, native or toreitru. Mac or unite . mi would be no new doctrine Manv men were packed ofl ward without a why or a for. Whv cannot these Chinese sh i makers be " packed off fcoistward with as little ceremony V But the truth Is that Mr. Stewart's plan of relieving the Boton, Crispin by enacting a iierfectly nugatory law has led to the sasplcion that he has been specially employed by the Mas sachusetts politicians to evade etfeelu al relief. Massac -husetts, be it remem bered, sntstanually extablished Afri can slavery upon this continent. Her people have, since she gold her negro ' slaves " to the South, been the slaves of masters who governed them by the most fantastical of superstitious mo tives. This having been " played out" at last, a new "idea'' ha? struck her notional leaders. It is the introduction of a system ol non-slavery servitude, which is defined by Sumner to be au involuntary liberty. By this system no man can be es teemed truly free nnleea restrained of his liberty, and no man can be ac counted a slave unless he takes upon himself to think and act for himself. The political and huaucial ideas in vogue, conneebsl with the new " idea," are plainly written. Tbey are, in a word, thai the people must surrender their politics to the Radical philosophers, aud their money aad earnings to the itudical bankers. - A Convict Dying Asserjka His Innocence.

The siMjctade presented by the scene of the tire Is one of the saddest that can be imagined. Nothing is to be seen but burnt walls and chimneys, aoli.'s and fragments of what were once splendid houses und other edi fices. These threaten passers-by, and already several persons have lost their lives by the failing of such remains. The Suftan, his Government and pub lic functionaries generally have done far more than could be expected in tavor ot the sufterers. Three large camps of tents extend from Pera to the next village of Kery Klcwy, all numbered, and their in mates supplied with provisions, bed ding and clothing. Indeed, many in dividuals are better oil there than they were in their late houses. Several births hYe already takenplace there, but, as vet, no deaths. The weather has been exceedingly hot, but yester day a heavy shower of rain cooled the air and laid the dust and ashes, The details of the disaster are of the saddest character. Many persons were found still alive in wells, cisterns and it llais. A large number were Uten outofotnersdead,literally roast ed and boihsi to death. In one place twenty-seven men u'ere found dead from the smerfce only; in one cistern w.-rc found three women living and one child dead. It is lielleved that there are still many dead and living iu similar places, and that search should be made fur thein. It is dangerous to remove anvof the ruins, on aio-ount of open we'll, slightly covered over, into which one may be precipitated, with out any warning. People, however, roam aoout them in scHrch of lost children and relatives. The lost and missing already are stated as bevond two thousaud, while only a few hun dred have been found and buried. Where are the rest If not under the ashes or in places of concealment? Many families whi'-b. were wealthy, possessing from 10,000 to 40,000 ster ling, are now poor, aud do not know where to find a shelter, if uot from the benevolence of their relatives and friends. In many cases whole fami lies were burned to death, and In oth ers several members, in one case twenty-seven were found dead among the ashes of their homes. The quan tity of jewelry tost to Vtsy reat among the Armenians and Greeks, large amounts in Ottoman bank notes and iionsolides having been burned. So much gain to the bank and imperial treasury. Some .40,000 have been collected here for the suff r rs, and its distribu tion will soon be made. In this hope mauy poor persons." remain under the tents when they might shelter else where. The Mussulman population of Stam boul and other part of the capital have shown more sympathy for the Christians than was shown by the latter toward them on the occasion which burned down so great a portion ol Stamboul, from the harbor across the city to the Marmora. Many ofler their "houses gratis or for nominal rents. Many aovieties have been formed t distribute funds and clothing, in ad dition to the Sultan's benevolence. The Masonic fraternity have done much, and many of the members lot everything. Lie was buriad to death in the fruitless attempt to rescue the i. k in the German hospital. His re mains were followed to the grave by a large number of the brethren. His name was Rrcbs, and should be known to all Masons as a noble mem ber of the craft. In one girls' school a large number of children were burned to death, the number com mencing with forty and running down to twelve. lubliity iuu not yetbeen jriven to the gazettes, for it is usual here not to allow the full amount of disaster to reach the Sultan.

There was very much donct in the minds of the peojde in the vi cinity as to their gull, and when Korobacher was reieasisiand returned to his former home he was received with quite an ovation by a large num ber ol the most respectable aud intel ligent citizens of Buchanan aud Black hawk counties. He has since resided in Waterloo, iu comparative poverty, having expended his whole property, from teu thousand to fifteen thou sand dollars, in defending himself and Knight from the charges on which they were convicted. The people of Independence were startled a little more than a week ago by the arrival of Kuight among them, ghastly, ema ciated, dyinir.

He returned a skeleton in body, broken in spirit, I hopeless and dying- He came say-1 ing, "I am too weak and worn and ! weary for reproaches, but will Buch- j anan county give to the dying pauper a pillow and to the dead convict a coffin and a grave?" Very many of the citizens callel to see him and none looked on the pale face and heard the dying lips protest bis inno cence without a feeling of awe and a shudder at the thought that would obtrude, that a terrible crime ha i been committed against the pitiful wreck before them. Hying pauper and pardoned convict though he was, death clnimed. him in a few days, and with hi- latest breath he asserted his innocence. He lies burned in the cem etery at Independence now, and it is at least a happy thought that there is po fear of any. unjust judgement in the court to which he has appealed.

A Woman Disinherited Is Indioted fir Mi tllatinoiher Father's Will. From San Francisco Chronicle, June 30. San Bafael Ls in a state of excite ment, caused by the indictment by the grand jury of u lady moving in ldgh circles in that place. The case is one of the most peculiar that has occupied the attention of the courts for some time one that is seldom brought to light and seldom heard of except In novels. We learn the fol lowing facts in regard to the " Black Will Case," which is the subject of great comment, both in that place aud in San Francisco, where the parties are well known. James Black, the deceased, an old Californian, came to this coast in 1884, and pur chased and received grants to large portions of land in Marin county, in close proximity to the town of San Bafael. Some years since he married his first wife, and by her had a daughter, who is the cause of all the present trouble. His first wife died from the effects of chloroform, administered by her son-in-law, for thr. purpose of extracting some teeth. A few years succeedm iui wife's death he married his present widow. who was the third wile, and afterward the widow of a Mr. Pacheco of that county. He ls said to have been very happy in his domestic relations. Mr. Black was considered a very kind and tenevolent man by all ,vbo knew him, but arbitrary iu bis likes and dislikes. In many cases, however, he has been known to exempt his tenants from paying any rent for their property in case of the failure of the crops. The daughter is the wife of Dr. Bar dell, at one time a promenent dentist of this city. It is alleged that sue married her husband against the ap prooatioa of her father, who was at one time violently cpp9sed to the match, but afterwards seemed recou cifod to tpe marriage, and on her wed ding day presejiteij hpr with a ranch near Peuiuuia, eatimaied to oe otl about ,ono, ana is valued at the present lime at about 1140,000. Since their; wedding I they have traveled extensively, visiting theTiist and Eu rope. About eleven years ago Mrs. Bar del 1 met her husband, who was a den tist in this city with a large and fash ionable class of custom. In course of time they were engaged. Mr. Black was opposed to the match at the time, but va, reconciled, and made the bride a present of tin? afooye ranch. After the ceremony the doctor and his bride took a tour to Europe. Shortly after the doctor's return Mrs. Black, James Black's first wife, requiring some teeth drawn, visited her son-in-law for professional services. To al leviate the paiu RMfCSMrt "n the ojieration of drawing her teeth, the doctoradministeredchloroform, which resulted in her death. Un hearing of this hef husband was Incensed against his sou-iu-law, and it is stated that at this time he made the will, cutting off his daughter and her husband. A child was born to the couple, and this had the effect of healing the breech : . i v, i ;.n thp fwq parties, since which time they have been on good terms. The estate left by Mr. Black was es timated by those conversant with his arhiire to he worth between $750,000 aud sjo,ooo at the time of hk death. The estate Is principally land in Ma rin county, generally rented out to tenants fordairy purposes and farming lands. Besides this, he had consider able money loaned out on mortgage, both In Marin county and this city. The will was dated about ten yoars ago, shortly after the marriage of his daughter; "and after beoueathing sev eral tracU of land and sinusal money, varying from four to five thousand dol lars, to some of his tenants frieuds of his lifetime and employees he left the whole of his remaining yrpierty to his widow, virtually cut ting eft his daughter, Mrs- Burdcll, with a dime- The exocutors ase Daniel Taylor, ot San Katael, Mr. Stewart, of Oakland, and Mr. Gor don, the county treasurer of Marin county. They are to act without giving bonds to the court. After the last tokens of respect had leen aid to the remains of the late James Black, a small and mournful party assembled at the late residence of the deceased, consisting of the rela tives and the executors. The will, as above, was read amid silence. Wb,en the lawyer had read the document, ft is alleged Mrs. Dr. Burdell requested the attorney to allow her to see the document. After having read the parchment and rteinu aware of its conteuts, she quickly, and before any of the party could prevent her, de stroyed the will by tearing the sig nature of the testator from the docu ment and destroying the name. Great indignation was'felt by those present, and steps were imqiediately tajtf n by those interested to bring the destroyer of the document before the grand jury, which was in session at the time. The case was presenti'd to them, and after mature deliberation and having the testimouy of all conversant with the alair, a true bill was found against her. The case Will probably come up before the present session ot the Fif teenth District Court, before Judge Dwindle. It the parties interested succeed in proving that the wdl was destroyed with malice, they will take steps to have the will admitted to probate and have the will acknowledged as the last will ami testament of James Black. Public sentiment appears to be on the side of Mrs. Burdell, as the people think that Mr. Black was in fluenced by passion when making the will, which, it will be reiHillected, was made shortly after his daughter's marriage. He is said to have ex pressed a desire a short time previous to his demise to do something more for his daughter and it Ls said, had not death called for him as soon as it did. that he would have made another will, granting to his daughter con siderable of his proerty. The end of this stranire case will be looked forward to with interest by the community, as the parties are well known in this city and throughout the Statu. ENGLISH RAILROAD ACCIDENT. Ml Given Evans, a Welsh woman, about a month ago, after taking out naturalization papers in Montana, pre-empted 1 acres of public land, then built a house and went to work improving her farm, and now has a cow, yoke of oxen, and all the farm ing tools generally used by pioneers.

Sometime ago Lord Byron's books were sold at auction, where a gentle man purchased a splendid edition ol Shakespeare. When it was sent home a volume was missing.

Ai Excursion Traia Wrecked- 35 Perseos Killed and 200 Wounded. From the Leadon Telegraph. The train, consisting of twenty-two carriages, left Klng's-cross punctually to time advertised, :Jal p.m. The run was rapid and sate until the train n eared Newark. It appears that a goods train, laden in part with wool en goods, was proceeaing on Its way to London, when, through the break ing of an axle-tree, several wagons were thrown into What is technically termed the 6ix-fdot. Unfortunately, at the spot there is a curve, and a lit tle beyond the scene of the accident, southward, there is a bridge. These prevented the driver of the ex cursion train from seeing the danger until too late to avoid the col lision. Though the steam was turned off, the speed of the train was such that it dashed into the goods wag ons with frigiittnl edevts. The engine was overturned into the ditch at the down side ot the line, while the ten der was thrown into the six-foot. The goods wagons were smashed into fragments, and, from the effects of the broken axle aud subsequent concus si:)U, scattered about the up hne.upon the hedge, aud Into the fields beyond. The passenger cars nejct the engine were, by the momentum, driven one over the other, and biles 1 iu masses of mere firewood high in the air. Every carriage of the train had the windows amj doors broken not one of the twenty-two escaped. At the tiiqe your correspondent left, twelve or fourteen persons were found dead or In a critical condition, while from Iim) to J00 of the passengers were injured. The groans of the wounded a.d dying ran"; through the sir, aud in the' dim llgnt of morninfc tbo pas sengers run to and fro, some bleeding and bruised, as if distracted by the a'vful transactions of the last few minutes. Scores were wandering a'xmt, some of whom had been driven violently against the carriages, others cut with Hying fragments of glass or -pi inters of broken doors or oar sides. Under the fragments near the engine several lay dead, while one lady, whom it was understood was only slightly hurt, was fixed among tho wreck of a carriage which had mounted" above two others. The driver was killed, one side of his htsad being literally smashed!!. The fireman lay against the firebox, his leg being torn off. Gne woman pleaded piteously with the surgeons that thi-y would amputate Uer legs, which were traustixedgby the broken timbers. One sight might have moved the stoutest to tears. A baby, atxmt six months old, was. picked up from among the wreck, its arms and face lacerated ; its mother was buried beneath the carriages. Oreat praise is due to the omclHls of' tiie threat Northern ltailwuy, who, with the greatest promptitude, aided by willing helpers, did all they could to alleviate the miseries of the poor unfortunates. ALABAMA. Address from the Ceatral Executive Com mittee of tue pemoeratic and Conservative Party. Since this rlty has outgrown a tire department iu which men have other daily (svupations than those connt eted with fires, we can look down with complacency upon cities that have not yet attained to this system. On the l.rth ult. there was a great fire at San Antonio, Texas. A drayman, a mem ber of one of tfoe fire companies, was anxious not to lose a job which he had undertaken, and drove his loaded cart into the street where the fire was raging, halted amid a blinding shower of sparkB, and, stepping up to the foreman of the engine to which he is attached, asked to be excused from service and relieved from fine. The foreman thought the fine, one dollar, would have to be paid ; the drayman remonstrated. "What are you cart ingf" asked the foreman. "Gunpow der," was the reply. The foreman glanced at the load of kegs, turned pale, and with a strenuous voice of o mmand, said, "No fine; only go!" The dollar saved was fully earned. NEW YORK. "My son," said an old lawyer, giv ing advice to his sua, who was just enteribg upon the practice ot his father's profession, "If you have a case where the law is clearly on your side, but justice seems to be against you, urge upon the jury the necessity of sustaining the law. I f.on'tbe other hand, you are in doubt about the law, but your client's case Is clearly founded upon justice. Insist upon the necessity of doing justiceeven though the heavens should fall." " But," asked the son, "how shall I manage in a case where both law and justice are dead against me?" "Inthatcase my son," replied the old stager, "talk round It."

The yacht club is making arrange ments for the races of the Dauntless and Cambria. Pools were sold last night at ion on the Dauntless to $60 on the Cambria. As one of the com peting vessels is owned by an Ameri can, and the other by an Englishman, the contest will be international. Mr. James U. Benuett, jr., is the owner of the Dauntless, while its rival, the Cambria, is the property of Mr. Ash bury, a prominent English yachts man. The dimensions of the Daunt less are: Length over all, feet; nreautn oi beam, '! leet; measure ment, '2&& tons by New York yacht dub rules ; her mainmast, 90 leet ; maintop mast, W feet; making I.-mi feet from deck to truck; foremast, Dti feet 'ore top, 12 feet ; lit from deck to truck, main boom, 73 feet; and main gafl, 3tH feet. She spreads about 3,889 square feet of tnvas, and is manned by a captain, sailingmaster, mate, Isiwswaln. two quartermasters, and twelve men before the mast. She will probably carry more men during the race, as the club rules entitle her to carry thirty-seven. The Cambria is a keel schooner of -i- tons, Ajew Vork measurment, aud considered an excel lent craft.

Probabilities of War Napaieea'a Eager ness aad Haste to Engage Prussia -Prussia Calm aad Prepared Fraace Heated and io Bead mesa Austria Shews Her Colors- Belgium sat la tbo Squabble. i rem the Colorado t'itijeu The Legislative act of Radical infa my has at last become a law. The ves, liberties ana property ot tne citizens of the State are now at dis posal of the Executive. What his course will be can easily be foreshown by his special to the loyal Black Re publican on the - ith day of June. His declarations indicate clearly the use that wiU be made of the arbitrary power conferred upon him by this partisan nuisance. The means used and the ends to be accomp listed are a fair index of the feelings and inten tions of the factions at the helm of the State. The militia, police, school and appointing bills crown the usurpa tion ol Uie itauicai taction, ana lay the ax at the root of constitutional liberty. Every citizen possessing in fluence and standing in the commu nity where he lives will be marked as a victim to Badieai hate, and some pretext will be truunped up to author- y.e the lactiouists to gratify their malice and destroy tlie victims. The court- of the country are to be closed to the redress of grievance, and the judiciary bolstering up illegal, cruel and niiquitious acts ot tyranny, n itu tne inuiiia au4 ponce ij emorue me mandates of Radical tyranny, and the enormous taxation imposed to meet tue claims oi uespousm uion tne people, will inflict such lasting injury upou the country that bankruptcy and all its attending mi-fortuniM will inevitablv follow. It Is highlv probable that the burdens of uixation will be raised so high that the people will be unable to bear them, in which case the administration will have to reeort to the expediency of using the credit of the State to raise the necessary funds to carry on the tate government. But one course remains for the people to pursue to counteract these iniquitous and op pressive laws, and that is to refuse to pay the state taxes, and thereby withhold the means to perpetuate their enslavement. Let the people acquiesce in the matters that they cannot help, but by acting so as to embarrass the administration they can avoid a great many ot the dama ges intended to be lntlietoH upon them. Let every creditor and person who credits the State, know that the peo ple will repudiate this revolutionarv and corrupt legislation, and never pay one cent of the debt created to fill the coffers of the vainpins who now are draining the life-blood of the State. Let the world know that these debts and large donations to monopo lies are violations to plain-provisions of the organic law. and will never be carried ont; that the white men, who own the property In the State, from whom the taxes are to be collected, will in all luture time control the des tinies of this State, and tbat they will not indorse or pay any debt illegally contracted or contracted for illegal purposes by the present usurpers. The provisions of the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the Constitu tion of the United States will be found very efficacious in the emergency thai will be certain to arise from the en forcement of these acts of tyranny and usurpation. The decision of Judge Bradley in the slaughter-house mon opoly at New Orleans gives us a rem edy to escape some of the ills intend ed to be imposed. We trust that in every instance when an arrest is made without authority of law, or when any citizen is tried before a tribunal un known to theOonstitution, the parties may apply to the United States courts for relief, and that every violation of the civil rights bill, and the laws of Congress to enforce the Fifteenth amendment, will be brought before the United States Courts. These en actments, that were passed for the op pression of the people of the South, ma v, in the end, be the salvation ot a larire number of our citizens. Let the old motto of the sages -of '"6 be our watchward until the last vestage of tyranny is banished from the land, and every usurpation punished, and the rights of the people secured. Bkkuh, July 10. The military men here appear excited about the Spanish embroglio. It is not thought probable that war will result from it. The Prussian Gazette, the ministerial organ, disapproves Grammont's decla ration in the French Chamber. It says he must know, as everyone does, that the King of Prussia and the heads of the confederation are all indiffer ent as to the election of Leopold to the Spanish throne. He had not the right, in the absence of evidence, to charge another power with the dispo sition to disturb, wantonly, the Euro pean equilibrium. Since Hohenzol lern is a free agent, and may or may not accept ! decrown, his decision will not affect Prussia's neutrality. Paris, July 10". p.m. The excite ment on the bourse la unabated. I l.-ntes continue to decline, and are quoted at Gat. 25c. According to the latest news, nego tiations coutinue, but it is impossible to tay what will be the result. It is rumored to-day that Prince Ilohenzollern has settled the whole question by withdrawing bis accept ance of Creneral Prim's oaer; but the CmulUutiomteL, in an extra, contradicts the report, and adds the following comments: The Prussian journals say their government has been a stranger to the candidacy of the Prince, if this were so, the Prussian government should now prove its smcerity by forcing the Prince to re nounce the offer. The Prince is under the authority of the King of Prussia. and the latter thus has the peace of Europe in his hands. The answer of Prussia is expected to-night or to morrow. If it is unsatisfactory, the necessary measures to enforce, with arms, the rights of France will imme diately be taken. Already the Gov ernment Is preparing for the emergency. A telegram from Ems says Count llenditti, the French Ambassador, be. fore his interview with King William, saw Baron Werther, the Prussian ambassador at Paris, who came to Ems to- consult with the King. The Baron told the French minister that the Government of lrussia was profoundly surprised at the attitude of France. It could not comprehend this haste to assume hostility, except as a verification of the beUef that France had for a long time desired war on the Bhine Vienna despatches state that the Au-trian minister of foreign affairs was received with coldness. The Belgian journals pronounce as a calumny the statement that the King of Belgium had any part in pro curing the offer of Prim or inducing its acceptance. A communication from Spain rela tive to candidature of Jieopold, says while negotiations are going on with great 'activity, the French gov ernment makes no attempt to conceal Its warlike preparations. The Emperor remains at St. Cloud, and, it is announeed, will not go to the mineral springs. Couriers arrived all day and far into the night at the palace. The Emperor opens the dis patches himself, and directs or dic tates the answers. Marshal McMahon was ordered to be ready to move at the first signal, aud orders sent commandant at Cher bourg to prepare his fleet and trans ports for :jv,00u troops. Large num bers of the army, and several officers who were in Paris on leave of absence, have disappeared, and have doubtless been ordered to their posts. Matrii, July 10. Regant Serrano has deferred his intended departure from Madrid. He reports that the unionists in the Cortes will vote against Hobenzollern unless the ques tions become international. The Imperial publishes an account ot an interview between Minister Sa gosta and Baron Mercier, French Am bassador. Sagosta complained that France op posed all nomination for the throue, pave that of the Prince of Austria, lle.lenied that Spain was under the influence of Prussia, and regretted the susceptibility of the French Govern ment. The report in the Paris iournais that F.s partem had pronounced against Hohenzollern, and called on his par tisans to support Prince Asturias, is utterly false. It is contradicted on the be.st authority. Grant and Cuba. Washington', July 10. The Presi dent sent to the Senate yesterday manuscript documents concerning the seizure of American vessels and executions of citizens of the United States during hostilities in Cuba. The State Department furnishes a letter from Secretary Fish, aatea June 9th, to the Spanish Minister, calling his atteution to the Ir regular aud arbitrary manner In which persons and property ol our citizens are taken aud held by the Spanish authorities in Cuba. Secre tary Fish recalls to Senor Roberts' re collection the protests of the Presi dent last year against Valmaseda's mode of warfare, and against the Cap tain General s decree forbidding a Urn itation oi property on the Island so far as regards American citizens, and other decrees which followed. PORT8 OF ENTRY. The subscription in Buffalo to the Buffalo and Washington railroad have reached $110,000. The amount, for which that city is assessed to build the road Is 1500,000, which will speedily be raised, and it is reported that the road will soon be built. A New Orleans man, with a bottle of mucilage in his coat pocket, en joyed the society of two lady friends in a street, unconscious that the bottle was broken. When they desired to leave, all were stuck fast, and only persevering efforts and the sacrifice of silks and doeskin released them. A petrified cat has been found under an old church being demolished in Newton, Conn. It was probably the Cardiff's pet mouser. Rival Railroad Routes. Terbe Hai tk, Intd., July 10. The new railroad from this city to Indian iisilis, constituting a division of the Indianapolis and St. Louis line, will be opened for travel and freight to night. An immense force of laborers has lieen employed in ballasting the road and it is reported in excellent condition. This gives two rival lines from St. Louis east, both passing through this city, and there are indi cations of the liveliest competition. Cincinnati. July 10. Hon. Hiram B. Revels arrived this morning, and will deliver his lecture on the tenden cy of our age, to-morrow evening.

St. Loot Democrat apeeial, 6th, The port of entry section of the tax bill, a passed by the Senate, provides that whenever any merchandise ex cept wine, distilled spirits, and perish able or explosive articles, or articles J in bulk lntported at the ports of Nevn i orfc, Philadelphia, Boston, Balti more, Portland, Maine, Port Huron.

The owner or agent is to give bond, with uot less than two sureties, in double the invoice value, with the duties added, which bond may be ex ecuted at the port of final destination, and transmitted to the collector of the port of arrival.

The provisions of the bill are to apply to importations from or to Eu rope, and from or to Asia, or the stands adjacent thereto via the I nited States. As t !.-.,, in all its features. Is the House bill, it seems almost certain that it will pass. The Catholic Ttlevravh announces that Archbishop Pureell has received permission to return home. He will cave i'aris at the dose of July, aud arrive here about the middle of August. On the question of Infalibil Ity, the venerable prelate has spoken In the Council with great freedom of mind and utterance, it is said, but with less vehemence than the Bishop of Savannah. Yesterday Mrs. Jane Larkins, aged one hundred and six years, born in county Mayo, Ireland, was roaming tne streets in seareu oi employment. She arrived in this country seventeen months since, having been sent for by her children, who had preceded her to this country. These children con sisted of four sons, who, after their arrival here, accumulated sufficient money to send for their mot her and provide, for her support. But, sad to relate, between the day of her sailing and the present time three of these young men have met with a violent death, and the fourth, it is feared, has shared the same fate. One of the boys was Kineu in an elevator in this city another on a steamboat plying be tween Cincinnati and St. Loais ; the thud in a railroad collision, while the fourth, who left the city some time ago for the West, has not since been heard from. The old lady la very active, and seems to he competent to earn her living, and her misfortunes will yet excite the sympathy of some charitable person so far as to give tier a comfortable home, even if herener gy does not procure it for her.
