ATHENS, FRIDAY, SEPT. 12 15!. New OntKANs, Sept. 2. The steamer Cincinnaii lias arrived, bringing Havana dates to the afternoon of the'25th. The steamer Aliedaras arrived at Havana on the morning of the 2oih, with 15 soldiers wounded in a battle fought on the 21st at Caldera. 'The Spanish report savs, forty privates "were killed and forty token prisoners. The despatch from tho commander at Bahia Honda says, tie shot six privates on the 22 J, including Adjutant General Graham and 'Lieut. Fercanding. The Captain General on the 24 ill issued a proclamation offering quarter to the in surgents who will surrender within four days after 'the notice is published irrespec tive of districts, and pardon to those who will deliver up 'Lopez. The Spanish loss at Caldera would seem large. Letters say that an express train had left Havana with surgeons to attend to the wounded Spaniards. The patriots were -always shot as soon as captured. A letter says that Lopez is in a position to hold out two months. The Crescent of this morning publishes a letter from Crittenden, written half an hour before his execution, lie says he had not a single musket and cartridge when his command was taken, and Lopez had no artillery at all. New Orleans, Sept. 2. The authorities are very vigilant in their measures to prevent the sailng of any ex pedilioa for Cuba. Money comes in very slowly to assist the patriots. TV! o. in n.i..n S.nl I Brownsville, Texas, advices to the 27th tilt., have been received. Cuba volunteers had gathered to the number of several hundred, and were ready for a descent upon the Isb).

Tub Law is Execoted. -The delivery, in the city of Buffalo, New York, the very hot-bed of Abolitionism and Free-soilism, of a fugitive slave to his owner, is fjuite an unfortunate support for the disunion'sts that the law is "a mere mockery" 'a dead letter." What will they say to the following paragraph, ns indicating the lone of the public authorities: When the mob pressed around the fugi tive slave lately takenV Buffalo, with a view lo effect a rescue, the Express tetls ut that "the Commissioner procfaimed in a loud voice, and in a very emphatic manner, at follows; "I want lo say lo you colored people, that I have mad the order to cary off this man, and there will be force lo ex ecute ii, telegraph or no telegraph, and if you resist, you will be shot down." ,'JrjDiciAt Elections in Missouri The St.L"ui Republican uma up its detail of Hie cltctio.1 in lhat State for Judges of the Circuit Court a follows: Nine snti-Benton men, four Benton men, and one undefinable, have been elected aa Judgee of the Circuit Court in this State.

The New York Tribune hat the following capital bit, being aa extract of a letter from lhat city: "Yours of asking information in re- gatd lolbe cotton market is received, and below you have the latest quotations.

By thesrrivol yesterday at this port of the schr. Merchant, Capt. Westendorff. from Havana, whence she tailed on tho 22d ult. we are in receipt of further advices from Cuba, which confirm the reports previously received of tho battles between the Fpanih Troops and tho Patriots tinder General Lopez, in w hich the latter were victorious. We cannot rely upon the ordinary cham ois for news from Havana, but 'ho information we have r.-ceived, ihoiigh very sea nty, we believe lo be from a source hich may be fully relied upon. We are informed that General Enna, tho ll in command nf the Spanish t roups, and 2nd in commnnd of the stand, was killed by the Patriots in the banio of the lJ'ih, together with Tour or five other Spanish, officers and five hundred Spanish troops. Gen. Enna's body was exposed in atute two days at Havana and wos afterwards buried with great pomp. We learn also slant Gen. Lopez was every where successful and was marching towards Havana with n force of l.fiOO to 2 000 men, and was in position cast of Moriel. The Creoles at Havana were highly elated at Lopez's success, and they ore daily making accessions to his army. American vessels arc closely peached, and a strict watch is constantly kept upon all American citizens on the Island. They are reported lo bo only about 700 Spanish troops at Havana. The accounts of the death of Gen. Enna explain tho report received here of a despntch having been put on board the Cherokee, just beforo sailing from Havana lo the Spanish Minister si Washing!! n, informing him of Ilia cap ture of Gen. Lopez. Wo presume !ho des patch to the Spanish minister related to tho death of Gen. Enna and not to Gen. Lopez as iios bnon reported. Gen. F.nna was not instantly killed, but was wounded in one (if his leg, fro, ii which he died the day after the buttle. The reports of the inhuman massacre of Col. Crittenden's command and the cruelties and outrages perpetrated upon their bodies ore fully confirmed. By thu Merchant we have received our regular files of the Faro Industrial, to the 20th ult. We learn from this pnper that nn tl.e 17ih, the Captain General distributed bre vets, &c. to thirty five officers and soldiers who wero wounded in tho battlo of Las Pozas. It also contains an official communication of the Captain General, dated the 19ih, which stataMhat General Enna was dan gerously wounded ir. a battle with Lopez, at s place called Carambola. ScARcur of Pkovissons. From various portions of AlaWha and Mississippi we notice cnmptainls'oT the scarcity and high price of provisions.. The West Alabamian, ofPiCjkens jpunty,' . Ala., says that the draught in that sectir'n is unparalleled, and thjtfomine is apprehended in consequence, public meeting has been called for the niirrbse of devising ways and means for obtaining supplies. The Tucaloc.s papers also give a like statement of affiirs in that count?, and a county convention is suggest ed. The Monitor of the 14th soys: The high price and srarcity of all kinds of pro visions In this place is attracting serious at tention.

ComnToinifHita nearly total failure of the corn cropse nifties, from various other counties The Tuscumbia Alabamian says : In our immediato vicinity, the corn crop is not a full one, but planters with whom wo have conversed admit that they will make full aa good, ifnn a better crjp than last year. Provisions, with the exception of flour, are, for those who have to purchase, uncomfortably high. Bacon ia totalling at 13 cent per pound; lard 13, and scarce; corn meal 75 cents' per bushel; flour 93 per hun dred, &.C Lynch Law in Georgia.

Beyond tho meadow, su justly remarkoble on the side ufilio wood covered hill, lies a lorg.i rock, brown, moss. clod nnd lightning scarred, and it too has a pige of interest. An Indian woman, lurking behind it while tho whites were burning the village and gloying her people, was seen by one of the invader, who immediately levelled his rifle, and shot the poor creatnro dend, under the impression, it is said, lint he was firing at one of the warriors. Tho Indian woman had a child 111 her arms, and tho horror stricken muidcrer, as somo atonement for what hu had done, after burying tho mother at tli 0 foot nf tho rock, carried the child, su slrnngoty baptised in bluod, with him lu the sen f!tit). if T"Cto'vnt were not well authenticated, I fchould ii mbt its truthfulness. It is well known that when the Macksa-check villnges were destroyed, tho Indians received warn I ing of the enemy's near approach, and fled.

' Tiie history of tho Indian boy is as wild as hi adoption was strange, ' " He wis taken into the family of the di s'ruyer of bin mother, and lica led as a member. He grew up a 1 trua Indian, scorning work, silent, and way ward, but eminently handsome and graceful, lie had, for a playmate, a younger daughter of his new parent, and they passed their childhood roaming over hill and dalu in search of flowers ond fiuit.
