Por haps that ,; little business which occupied just ten minutos" did'nt turn out happily. At any rate, this is a bit ol his recent sarcasm : "The bold, direct way in which Grant invited to his Cabinet the mon who had mado him handsome presents, and ?hen put all his relatives in of? fice, took from the transaction any suspicion of a wrong intent. It was only laughable." -Commander F. S. Fillebrown, of the United States steamer Narragansett, reports under date of the 7th- instant, from Havana, the particulars of two passengers, Cubans; * having been taken out of the American achoo ti? er Liizzle Maj >r, ten leagues from the coast ot Cuba, by tho Spanish frigate Fernando Catoli oa, and imprisoned. The two personn woro named D. Santiago A. Anible and Don Ramon Y. Raivas. It seems that they took passage in tho Lizzie Major at Havana for New Orleans. The echooner touched at Remedios, took in a cargo, and sailed on the 26th of March for V - ?unation. She was boarded the same day by the Spanish frigate, as above stated. The prisoners were carried back to Remedios and incarcerated. One of1 them is a lad of about ten years of age. They were visited in prison by Mr. Stone, United States Consular agent at that point, who made a demand on the Commandant of the Province for their re? lease, who did not feel authorised to release them without order? from his sn peri irs. The case having been made known to Mr. Hall, United States Couaul General at Havana, he has brought it to the attention of the Captain General of Cuba, who has ordered a , thorough investigation to be made. The ground of the arrest is said to be that the names of the pas? sengers were not on the manifest of the echooner. -The foreign nominations as a whole are said to bo very unsatisfactory to the Senate, although party fealty will secure their confir? mation. Mr. Jay's assignment to Vienna is regarded as a first-rate second-raie sort of com? pliment, and his friends are the reverse of well .-pleased, except as to the small thankfulness -with whioh commensurate favors are received. Ur. Jay bas amassed a large fortune, and has acquired the reputation of ft good deal of cul? ture. More 3ver, he directly r< presents a doa! of subscription and the whole of the Loyal League. His claims were rated high, and they ?. re felt not io have been dury rewarded. The ?upersednre of Henry Sanford at Brussels hy the Unknown J. Russell Jones, of Illinois, made ' great consternation in the Senate. "Who is -Jones?" took the place of the conundrum, *?Who is Borie ?" and,in every instance lt was given up. There is a likelihood of Pile de? clining to go to Venezuela. Clay, to Liberia, ?nd Bassett, to Hay ti, are two negroes, one of Louisiana and the color of an old saddle; the other of Philadelphia and a genuino black. They are said to be men of ability and wealth. The nomination of ex-Senator John S. Z. Car? lisle, of West Virginia, to be minister-resident at Stockholm, is to Radicals A deoided surprise, to say the least. He is regarded as ft cautious -conservative, and his party status* can be un? derstood from the fact that he was a fair Demo? crat while senator from that State. Governor Cnrtin's going to St. Petersburg ia commented apon merely a? a proximate initiation of his? tory. -The Philadelphia proas gives the following account of the experiments on the body of ?Garald Baton, who was hanged last week for murder : Arrangements were made by tbs friends of the condemned to have an effort made to resuscitate the body. Accordingly, a .-committee appointed for the purpose worein waiting ftt the prison at th? time of the execu? tion, and the body, wrapped in blankets, was brought to tbs naiver?ity. The drop was four feet; the cord around his n?ok was a small one. Be hung by his nook thirty minutes, and there were signs rt ills only four minute? alter the drep. Ten minutes after belog cot down, he . JftfAS Pissed ur?m tbs table in the amphitheatre, the time classing from the execution being forty-four minutes. Six onuses of whiskey ? wars injected into the bowels, and oes gallon * of pare oxygen gas was forced into the langs, ?nd ft powerful galvanic battery applied to the medulla oblongata and the pit ol the stomach. Jit the same tims the tongue was withdrawn from th? mouth, and the body turned from aide to side, after the method of Marshall Hall, for artificial respiration. In four or five minutes a /marked change occurred ia shs eountenauoe; the chest gradually expanded, the eyes opened, .??. arm waa drawn up, and, hy mean? of a stethoscope, contrae tiona and dilatations of tbe heart were distinctly hoard. So evident were the signs of lifo that his friends exulted over tho fact that he really lived. Another gallon of oxygen was introduced into tho lungs, and the battory was charged so that the cur ont passed the on tiro length of the spine, and the artifi? cial respiration continued. For a few moments tho signs of life increased, but in a short time disappeared. Nitrous oxide gas was injected into the lungs by an artificial opening into the traches, made by Professor Duffee, but ell to no purpose, and at the expiration of one hour and twenty-five minutes the experiment ceased, and the body was banded over to the friends. CHARLESTON. SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 17, 1869. The liver Faithful Isle. The Cuban insurrectionists have, accord? ing to the New York Tribune, beoome mas? ters of at least three-fifths of tho area of the Island of Cuba, and from the same reli- | able source we learn that the control of the Spaniards over the remainder is in jeop? ardy. The insurrectionists hove an organ? ized semi-military government, supported by au army of forty thousand men in the field, which could easily be doubled in num? bers if arms and equipments oould be had. This Bounds well, and is echoed and re? echoed by the metropolitan and provincial press. It is a fine thing surely to sympathize with a nation struggling to be free. There is a flattering unction in the reflection that each public meeting and each leading article is a blow on the side of liberty. And in view of the historio faot that the Amerioan Rad? ical is an ingenuous and disinterested mor I tal, who has never oppressed others or tied thongs to the whip of military tyranny, it is pleasant to hear these cries of sympathy with Cuba and with Crete, these appeals to the government to recognize the Cuban rebels, all these hints that the officers of the United States should wink at the expe? ditions which are being fitted out to aid struggling Cuba. It is true that Cuba is a province of Spain, and that, according to international law, the United. States have not one tithe of the right to recognize the Cubans as belligerents that England and France had tb recognize the Confederate States. But who cares now for principle ? Who cares for the right or the wrong of it when the question is to unshackle the hu? man raoe, and at one fell swoop establish unqualified negro equality ? This is the secret of the friendliness of the Northern Radicals to the Cuban insur? rectionists. The Democratic presses give the insurrection their support because they know that the Spaniards dre treating their prisoners, and those who are suspected of giving counteuanoe to the rebellion, with a bloody brutality whioh no Valley raider or spoon peculator could surpass; and also, perhaps, because they are willing that the Gem of the Antilles should fall into the lap of the Union, so that the Radicals may have a new and distant field in whioh to practice the arts of profitable reconstruction. But the anohor whioh prevents the Radical ship from breaking"away from its moorings is vvh.a ? ,?o Tribune calla tho "moral value" o? tbs unm^takahte poMrtsiv-wi^ctt-^i^ Cubans bold in taking as their purpose "the "pohoy of emancipation and full enfran? chisement of all their citizens." We of the South had thought that a Car? olina cotton field was an earthly paradise when oompared with a Cuban sugar plan? tation, and we have, so far, no groat faith in the moral value of emancipation coupled with the right to vote.. Tho freed? men of the South have shown no oapacity for Self-government, sud have fallen a prey to the oily tongues and winning ways of the politioal negro traders. Southern freed? men were, at the. tints of their emancipa? tion, more intelligent and more oapable of improvement than are the Cuban negroes, and yet the Southern freedmen are very far from being able to take good oars of them? selves, or to make just laws for the. benefit of themselves and others. It seems, however, that there is a virtue in Ignorance. Because he was illiterate and dull, the Southern negro received the highest privileges whioh a man. may enjoy,: There was to be security for himself in bis very want of knowledge, and security for others in his very stupidity. There has been some little jarring of the machinery 9 some sign that a fool who possesses power may soon become a knave. But th? Radi? cal party is a party of great moral ideas, and the move besotted and barbarous'the Cuban negress issey bi, ths =asrc -rill Radi? calism applaud the revolution whioh dare? to set them free. ? We have of course no fondness for Spain; but on the other hand we cannot but feel that Cuba might be more prosperous under the yoke of Spain than under the rule of half a million negroes enjoying the right to hold office and the right to vote- What we desire is the freedom of Cuba, not its subjection to tho rule of the negro; and we fear that the Cubans, in bidding high for Radioal sympathy, forget what is nec? essary for .their own safety, and embrac? an unnatural dootrine whioh, if persevered in, will debase them and their people, and lead to the speedy ruin of the "Ever Blessed "Isle." The Month Carolina Central Itailroad.

PREHISTORIC NATIONS: or Inquiries Concerning some of tho Groat Peoples and Civilizations of Antiquity, and their Probable Relations to a still Older Civilization of tho Ethiopian or CuBhites of Arabia. By Jno. D. Baldwin, A. M. New York : Harper & Brothers. Char los tou : Holmes' Book Houso. Mr. Baldwin has,, undertaken a difficult task the construction of a history from tho legends, idolatries and monuments of tho primeval nations. In that vast cloud-land, where tho morning; light of civilization arose and whence its magical rays have not yet wholly disap? peared, ho undertakes to distinguish reality from romance. He believes that in the Cush itos be has discovered the first world explorers, or at least tho first world conquerors-the art? ists of the antique rook sou ip lures and the cyclopean walla, the priests from whom Egypt derived ira inspiration, the circumnavigators of Africa, the metal wjvkers of Spoin and Britain, the teachers of tho Ago of Bronze, whose traditions and even whose arts still lingor in the Indian Archipelago, in Arabia, in the heart of Africa, and among the lonely valleys of Peru. The author's confidence in his theory is boundless, and his industry in collecting corroborativo facts ia equal to his enthusiasm. The result is a volume oracular, garrulous, entertaining-intolerant of ?Bher and orthodoxy, deforontial to Ronan, and ro? mantic and scientific incredulity. Unfortu? nately, tho faots in tho volume ore selected, not sifted. Any authority bas value which supports the theory of tho book; thus Diodo rus Siculus is allowed to testify to events whick occurred before the founding of Baby? lon. Mr. Baldwin has endeavored to repro? duce the primordial past after a method which casts contempt upon the well established prin? ciples of historical criticism. He has not trav? ersed much ground; he has collected many cu? rious antiques; but he must strike deeper if he would bring to light the buried secret of the ages.
