V»hat the English Tamh „i Acquisi- ' tion of Cuba. ^ Hon. John G. Dodson, es p, candidate for \ Parliament for List Sussex (England) recently delivered a lecture to the English people of Brighton, on the subject of Cuba, embracing the result of his residence in that island.— Among other things he sai I: It Cuba was annexed to the United States its! productiveness and its trade would be more de veloped m five or six years under the intluence oi American activity, th in in ten times as many ! years of Spanish torpor and misrule. In a po-I htico-eeoijonncal point of view, the world and England especially, would bi gainers But however much England (and the same applies, though in a less degree, to France and other great powers) might gain in wealth, she would lose far more in inspect of position and pres tige. The possession of Cuba would add enor mousi v to tlie inti net ice and the strength of t.ie tilted States, and would hasten the day which already seems fast approaching, when | they will become the first power in the world. 1 et it scarcely, under any circumstances, will worth L i_r!;uM\s while to plunge into a war with the American republic, solely to en ; deavor to prevent it from adding Cuba to its dominions. Even if successful in the inline I dlate object of the war, she would iniliet a j great injury on h rself as on her rival. Lithe natural course of things, America must be come sooner or later a far greater empire t han tiie mother country. The Americans have all the qualities that have made us what we are, with one hundred an I tiltv times our national’ resources, ami their spirit of enterprise is ac Ooidinq v qtiickenc i and stimulated. The most desirable event for E .ghitt I would be such a peaceable dissolution of the Union as should leave two or more prosperous at; I indepen lent powers capable of lioldi g tbe balance to eaeii other. Such a dissolution would probable be rather promoted bv the ad lilioti of Cuba to t tie republie; such a di-sol lit ion w • it i <1 j .r >11 il>: \ !).• legarded by the attempt of any foreign S ate to bring it about, I’ll.it. a separation will sum. d iv take p| ice, many thinking Ante;; ms be lieve; the tune, however, of it. is perhaps more remote than the people in Europe are willing to imagi- e.

Such are the ! hands into which wo have fallen, and men \ w ho wish to he esteemed respectable, and call I themselves good citizens, profit by this reign of j terror, and receive office at the hands of this pretorian guard of ruffians, and make common ! cause with them, with some openly, w ith all in secret. Where is all this to end? What is to be the 1 fate of our Union, or of our city? But one thing can save the Union, and that is a strict adherence to the supreme law of the land, the constitution. But one thing can restore our city to her prosperity and good name, and i that is, for the people to forget party prejudice i and rise in their might, and drive front |>ower. at d from the city the pestiferous elements ; wuicia UOlllllM.il—-—-———— From the N. O. Courier. co r rax. The cotton lords of the British manufactur ing d strict* are just now sadly exercised at the nigh prices which our great ‘staples command ! t“ulr markets. They seem to be afflicted at j ne extent to which prosperity is smiling on I so many others than themsel ves. It is too i much lor their ideas of “ the balance of trade,” that while they amass millions bv working up the great staple, the grower should find his capital, risk, labor and skill, yielding him a grateful return. Accustomed, of late rears, to sway their own government, and to find them selves auove all control except such as they may choose to feign a submission to, tliev de sire to extend their influence. Th^y would 'v mid as stern and relentless a power over the producer of the raw material as they do over ineii hardly wrought, ignorant, miserably paid factory, “ hands,” at whose expense they thrive. But they find something more than a mere ibeck in their efforts. I'iiev perceive tb.it il Llie British manufacturers are “cotton lor Is,” ■ iie great staple it is th it makes them so: “ Col ton is King.” All efforts to interfere with its soverign authority, to abridge it, or to divert it, nave proved signally abortive. It lias increas ed in strength hum year to year, till now it quite overshadows them, and promises to con in ue to increase indefinitely. And they are aiming, apparently all the more resolutely, a releasing themselves from a position so irksome lo their grasping avarice, their selfish arrogance ami their narrow prejudices. W hat is to he the ivar-cry under which they "ill marshal lor this new onset is not yet piite clear. At present it seems that they can find no better one than that founded on the pre sent high prices of Cotton. That, however, eeitainly cannot last long. The demand does i not yet exceed the supply, and therefore, ac cording to their own free trade theories, prices '•foot go beyond an eq it, table range; anv effort to lorce them below it by unnaturally sti muli.mg pro luction can end in nothing but disaster. It may be that ill wish this disas ter to fall on the planter of the United States; but they can scarcely be silly enough to be l.e\e that there is the slightest approach to eeliainty, or even any explicable amount of probability that this would bo the result. I lie efforts that have al'eailv been made with this and similar ends in view have been neither few nor trifling, although they have j invariably failed. The East Indies, the West Indies, Brazil, Kgypt have in turn been tried. Alrioa lias been looked to with earnest wistful ness. But all in vain even when the cultiva tion ol the product in this country had not reached - its present extent or excellence; and " ’ ' can doubt that similar results must be now arrived at? 1 iie immense advantage now possessed bv the I nited States in the cultivation of cotton cannot be too strongly insisted on. The vast amount ol capital invested in it must alone, lor a long time at least, if not always, para ! <./.■• competition. Here, the return for it muv always be approximately estimated. Wheie ■ \ ei else it might he sent, it eouli lie sure of real :/.:ug nothing, except the great ri-k of -i ii \ i ng it. 1 lie.skid, knowledge and adapta t'on Ft the cultivation of the product, which lo .g experience, unbounded enterprise and en , uni i vail d perseverance, and ever con tinuing efforts at improvement, have enabled us to attain, lorm another insurmountable bar rier to any assault that can possibly be ma le ign s! us.

How to Raise Tuhkkys—.4 correspondent of tli" Country Gentleman gives tiie following as his experience in raising turkeys. I commenced raising turkeys about three years ag ', but never met with any success un til the last season, I860. The winter previous, i wintered one tom and two hens, and they laid BO egus, from which I raised forty-five turkeys from fifty hatched. Until the last summer I never could raise over one-fourth that were hatched. My mode of raising them is as follows: I made each lien lay two settings, which they will do without injury if they are well wintered. I set two settings under dung hill fowls, and the remainder under turkey hens. As soon as they are hatched, I have crates provided, and nimediately shut them up. and keep them shut ip for four weeks, and then let them range inywhere on the farm. 1 feed them on Indian meal, and keep buttermilk constantly it‘fore them. I throw about half an ounce of asafeeti ia in their miik each day, and this keeps them lively, and they are never bothered with lice. \\ hen I let them out tiie)’ seem to grow up without any more trouble. I think there is nothing that will afford our farmers greater profit than turkeys if managed in this way.— I think the whole secret of my success lies in the asa foetid a.

Under the above title the London Times of April 10 has an article which intimates that a coolness is springing up between France aud England. The Times says: People who moralize on history have never doubted that national greatness has its rise, its culmination, and its setting. Assyria, Greece, Carthage, Rome, and the rest have passed away, opaiu’s boast and Empire, on which the sun never set, has been transferred to England, the ruins of whose metropolis a popular writer has already figured a New Zealander as contem plating. \V hy, indeed, should not the are at nations ot the present time yield the suprema cy to younger avals? England and France are old, m comparison with the other great powers ol the world. Even Austria is no Ion -or the German Empire, and as for Russia, Prussia ami ! tiie United States, they are but upstarts of yes terday. Wo cannot wonder that al! the histo- ! nans and philosophers, all the theorizers about 1 the progress of civilization and the march of j empire, slmul I abound in predictions of the decline which is to he the inevitable fate ol the leading nations of Europe. But we teel ourselves young and vigorous, it we are ju-t establishing our collonial system and taking possession of our Asiatic empire, il we are building new houses of Parliament and instituting national collections in tho-tiue arts u is not the same with our nearest neighbor.

But of late years, ami especially since the establishment -f the Empire, there blH,“ il *1 range dej setion among the eduea tel cl oses, aud ail those who think, or profess to think on political subjects. Railroads -old coinage, increase of trade, and increase of re venue, have laded to restore cheerfulness to a large class of Frenchmen.

They got the start of us in India, won battles, formed alliances, and almost effected what Providence eventually reserved for England. Their Meets, ewui as late as the Ainericiu war, were equal to ours in strength, and lough: against us with out d isgr me. I’huir merchant marine was, to a still iiiter period, almost e pul to ours in tun n.ige. But within the present eenturv the two nations have gone dill'eruit ways. How much we have changed it is unnecessary to sav, but c- it duly h ran tv seems to have iost mueli of the energy and vitality of the old times. The excessive development of the military system in Europe, and the attention paid to strictly continental concerns, have turned the French li'nm the field on which they wrestled with us tin.lei the elder Bourbons.

Second is, that men should he so foolish, and even so wicked, as to go to war, and kill each other: if let alone they would die themselves. And the third and last thing which I wonder at is, that men should be so unwise as to go after the .. -- Revolt at Sixg Sing State PrISox — The New York Herald gives the following account of the recent attempt of the convicts in Sim* hong prison to escape.

A gang of stone quurriers were pacing the quadrangle; a cry •nose mm them, and forthwith some thirty or forty men started off. Reaching tin: railroad tr.ic.tx, u inch lies in a cutting direction through the prison grounds, they descended the wall, and ran through the tunnel towards tli- villa * * at the top of their speed.

Nothing short of an entire relinquishment of those Islands by Great Britain will satisfy lids government. i in* adm n stratiuu has not hesitated upon this question, and they determined at once, and P°siti v .-ly, to ui-i.vt up m the construction of the Clay ton-Bui wer treaty which this government had heretoiore assumed. it is not intended to abrogate the Clayton Bnlwer treaty, but to insist upon our iiiterpreta tiou of ir, which will exclude Great Britain from the Bay Isl unis.

They have no northern allies, and will be utterly powerless to effect anything. On the contrary, if democrats are chosen from the South, they will be able, with the fifty-three northern de mocrats, tocontrol the legislation of the house. The South, therefore, under these circumstan ces, should send a united democratic delega tion.” Famine in Finland.—Tho latest accounts from Russian Finland continue to give a most distressing picture of the famine raging in that unhappy country. In the district of Uleaborg, Wasa and Kurpio alone, out of a population of 657,000 souls, no less than 250,000 have no other means of subsistence than begging or eating unpalatable bread made from the bark of trees. The mortality is consequently very great, and it is daily on the increase, as the dreadful famine typhus has hroken out with great malignity. The distress is such that chil dren have been seen who for want of other food have actually eaten off their fingers! libe ral contributions have been sent frion Ham burgh and Lubeck. Upwards of §80,000 have been remitted from Sweden, and as soon as the .... ,e,ml How Michigan Came to be Called the “ Wolverine ” State.—Job Culvers, a cones- j Pondent of the Now York Sunday Courier, tells the following story of the manner in which j the State of Michigan became nicknamed. We give it for what it is worth. Job suvs th it Conrad leu Eyck kept a tavern altout ten miles from Detroit, in 18J3 an 1 many vears after. But at the period we speak of, a gay party, in | the winter, resolved to have a sleigh-ride out to Coon’s, ” as lie was called. Arrived out, they called tor supper. Coon ” being one of the early pioneers to the interior of tue territory, then inhabited by Indians, had bought ot the natives, that verv day, Hie carcass ot a wolf for the sake of the skin, (no premiums were then ottered for scalps.) I Cum, who was put to his “trumps” in order to get up a supper, having nothing fresh on 1 •‘and, bethought himself of the wolf hi the f barn. Indfle time the supper was ready, and ■ the gentlemen were invited to “sit down and eat, and welcome to our table.”—There was “V"nj'"n" ,-n ak no 1 “ v ■ '- i " f"'. “Venison” s’evv an l "venison'* pt’e. After supper, the merits of the dishes were discussed, and many were tli > p-.iises bestowed np'iu the catering of “ mine liost.” Applejack and smuggled brandy were likewise i seussed unt.l midnight, when the party ordered up their sleigh to depart. Ju-t as they were about leaving, Coon asked the pariv to taiio a parting drink at the expense of the 'house. “ lientiemon,” said Coon, “you sav vou like the supper I have furnished you. Now allow ni" to say that you are In tic tforth to bo known as the ‘Wolverine Party,’ the savory dishes you have partaken of are from the hams of a fine, fat young tool/ that 1 bought to-dav of the Indi ms. ” Tins auiioitne. in -tit was received by the par !>• lls ;* -1 i ike, and “glasses wont round to keep it down; ” A traveler called at night-fall at a farmer's li., i is- t lie o vner being from home, an 1 the; in it ier an 1 daughter alone, they refused to 1 lodge the way-faror. “How far, then,” said lie, “ to a house where a preacher can get lodg ing ? " “ Oh, if you arc a preacher, ” said the old la-lv, “you can stay here.” Aecordindv he dismounted. He deposited his saddle-bags in the house, and led his horse to the stable. M tauwliile the mother and d mghter were de lta: ing the point as to what kin 1 of a preacher he was. “ He cannot be a Pr -sbyti rian, " said the one, “ for lie is not dressed well enough. ” “ Ho cannot be a Methodist,” s ad the other, “lor Ins c at is not the right cut fora Metho dt't.” “It I could liud his liymn-b ink, ” sai l the d High:, w, “I Could tell what sort of a |»'e .. r in- is.” And with tli it. she tlirust her b r d iiit i the saddle-bags, i I pulln g out a Hask of li ptor site ex dim.
