THE BROKEN CABLE.
The Managers of the Atlantic Ca
ble Company now despair, it is said,
of successfully repairing the broken
ocean lines, until next Jane, when
the -work can again be prosecuted
with a smooth sea. The steamer
Robert Lowe is still, however, en
deavoring to grapple the broken con
nection. The .trench cable is
again over-crowded with telegrams
for Europe, and they are transmitted
with difficulty and very slowly.
The settlement of the Alabama

land to take the initiative for re
opening negotiations on the Alaba
ma question, he will be disappointed

SAN DOMINGO RESOLUTION.
The resolution providing for the
appointment of commissioners to
examine the feasibility of annexing
San Domingo, passed the Senate
last Thursday morning. The de
bate was a very hot one, and was
carried on during the whole of the
night. Mr. Sumner did all be could
in opposition to the resolution. Sen
ators Nye, Conkling, Chandler, and
several other prominent members
were in favor of the resolution. If
these commissioners are to be ap
pointed by the President, they are
about as certain to report favorably
as the sparks are to fly upward. The
House adjourned before acting on
this resoluiton. The President was
visited the next day by many Sena
tors and Representatives, who con
gratulated him upon the passage ol
rtfo foTnrltn rncnliifirtn TTn eaid In
reply that he believed the annexa
tion policy wise and prudent, and
thought it would gain strength as
the facts became known.
A POOR DEFENCE.
The latest attempt to prove insan
ity as a defence in a trial of murder,
arose in a case lately tried in New
Yerk. " The counsel for the defence
called a phrenologist on the stand to
prove lhat the formation of the de
fendants head was of such a charac
ter, .19 to make him an irresponsible
l, npu- :j - i t
uuiuuu ueuig. luu iuea mienueu
to be conveyed to the jury was, that
the defendent had no power to con
trol himself, and that his will to
commit murder was so powerfully
developed, that- it was impossible
for his other faculties to have any
control or restraint over him in
that re3pect, and that, therefore, the
man was a monomaniac and " should
not be convicted. The testimony,
however, was ruled out, and the de
fendant i3 under sentence of death.
The plea of insanity is now the
great defence in cases of murder,and
too frequently it arouses sympathy
that acquits the prisoner where he
ought not to escape punishment.
Such an effort, howavcr, as the one
to which we have referred,, is calcu
lated to lessen the weight of such
pleas. It needs but a single step,
and a short one too,from the preval
ent opinion that suicide isprima fa
cia evidence of insanity,to reach the
conclusion that no sane man would
wilfully and deliberately shed the
blood of his fellow man with intent
to kill. Society sympathises with
the man who shoots down one who
has violated thepurity of his home,
and has almost reached tho conclu
sion that every man under-such cir
cumstances is insane. The punish
ment has much to do with so very
many acquittals on the ground of insanity.
We have had for tho last month,
rumors of the resignation of Secre
tary Boutwell, which have been as

tion is handed in. It is certainly to
be hoped that Mr. Boutwell will re

Tho debate in the United States
Senate a few days ago over the re
solution of Senator. McCrecry pro
viding for the restoration of the es
tate of Arlington to the widow of
Robert E. Lee, and the disinterment
of the bodies of Union soldiers bur
ied there, was a gratifying demonstra
tion of the deep and well grounded
feeling which the Senate, represent
ing the people of the United States,
bear against the traitors. The Sen
ate refused even to allow the resolu
tion to be introduced by a vole of

Lives of Great Men.
Tho lives of great men were not
always what the outside world would
be likely to suppose them to have
been. Otway starved in a garret;
Raleigh died on the scaffold; Dry
den died in poverty and distress;
Bacon lived a life of misery and an
guish; Carrocus expired in a poor-
house; Cervantes, the author of
"Don Quixote," died of famlue;
Lee died in the street; Goldsmith
was always in fear of bailiffs; Tas
fo was constantly without money;
Paul Borghese never could obtain a
decent livelihood ; Homer was a beg
gar; Plautus turned a mill; Steele
was in perpetual strlfo with debt;
Vangciss was obliged to sell nis
corpse to surgeons that the process
might satisfy the demands of some
of his creditors, i
A terrible gas explosion took
place in Cincinnati on the evening
of the 19th instant, by which one
hundred thousand dollars worth of
property was destroyed, but for
tunatelv no lives were lost. The
people all over the city were startled
by an unusual sound like the rumb
ling of distant artillery, and by a
sensation that was like the breath of
an earthquake. The gas-holder,
number five, which had been erected
at an expense of seventy-five thous
and dollars, in place of the one
which was destroyed in a similar
manner on May 24th, 18C9, was a
complete wreck. At the time of the
explosion, it was charged with four
hundred and fifty thousand cubic
feet of gas, that had gone off blazing
into air, and the mighty holder,
wrenched and distorted, sank down
into the water, we'l nigh out of sight
No one was injured in any manner
whatever, with the exception of one
man, who was somewhat burned
and went home on account of his
injuries. This was owing to the
fortunate hour.at which the explo
sion took place. It was the hour
for changing bands. What caused
the explosion is not known. There
seems to be a mystery about explo
sions of this kind that science can
DEBATE IN THE SENATE.
The debate in the Senate on
Wednesday night arose on Mr. Mor
ton's joint resolution, introduced on
the 13th inst., providing for the ap
pointmcnt of three commissioners
to proceed to San Domingo and as
certain the political, physical, men
tal and moral condition of the peo
ple, the resources of the country,
the relations of its government with
those of other powers, and "such
other information as shall be desir
able or important, with reference to
the future incorporation of said
Dominican Republic into the Uni
ted States as one of its territories."
The speech of Mr. Sumner, in op
position to the resolution was de
voted less to the question of the
adoption or rejection of this partic
ular resolution than to the merits of
the main question. In his reply,
Senator Morton made the point on
Mr. Sumner that if all the charges
the latter had made were capable of
proof, Mr. bumner should especially
desire the appointment of a com
mission. But the ninth section of
the joint resolution, which we have
quoted above, shows that the inten
tion of "the mover was that the com
missioners should hunt up annexa
tion information. We do not forget
that Senator Morton denied in a
weak way that this was his inten
tion, but the words of the resolution
itself contradict him. More than
this, the adoption of the resolution
is regarded as a great triumph of
the annexationists. But it is to be
remembered that the resolution will
encounter new opposition when it
comes before the House!, and that
tlfc whole question will have to be
met on its merits when the report of
the commission is presented. There
will be likely to be some lively de
bating before the final conclusion is
An important battle was fought
on Friday, the 23d, near Amiens, on
the north side. The official dis
patch of the French commander,
Gen, Faidherbe,says he was post.ed
in strong position when he received
the German attack. The fighting
was severe and lasted until nightfall
several villages being taken and re
taken. At night, he says,the French
held the field of battle, but during
the night the Germans entered the
villages, but without attacking the
French position. Other French, or
philo-French, accounts, say the bat-
tic was indecisive, but that on the
following day the French fell back
to Albert with a loss of 5,500, in
eluding prisoners, whilst the Ger
man loss was 3,000. King Wil
liam's dispatch to the Queen says
Manteuffel won a victory,taking one
thousand prisoners,and that on Sun
day, the 25th, he had commenced
pursuit of the French towards Arras.
The villages named in the dispatch
es all lie north of Amiens on the
road to Albert and Arras,and thence
on to Lille. Pont-a-Noyelles,wh'ere
the principal fighting is said to have
occured, is six miles from Amiens
and nearly half way between that
city and Arras.
By this battle the attempt of
Faidherbe to create a diversion on
the north in favor of Paris is stopped
and he is in danger of being driven
back on the defences of Lille.
From the south the French re
ports show that Chanzy has been

NEWS ITEMS. Outrage at Harvard College--Freshmen
The following is from the Spring-
neia Jiepubucan ol December 13:
One of the most dastardly out
rages ever committed by students,
occured last evening at about 9f
o ciocK.m the basement of tstongh
ton Hall, one ot the dormitories of
Harvard College. It consisted in
exploding a small keg of powder in
the cellar immediately under rooms
occupied by members of the Fresh
man Class. The result was the de
struction of almost everything in
two of the rooms, the shock having
raisea iue noor more tnan a loot,
tearing up a plank in each of the
rooms, scattering and destroying
tneir contents, and sending their
occupants forcibly up against the
ceiling. In two of the adjacent
rooms, one ot which was occupied
by two Springfield high school boys,
not so much damage was done to
turniture, but the floor was divided,
and one part raised nearly a foot.
Ul course, the rooms were immedi
ately filled with smoke, which,pour-
mg up through the floor, increased
the terror of the ajready terrified
occupants. Glass was shattered,
and the door sills wrenched, so that
the door could' not be opened, and
for some time there was a great
state of confusion. An alarm of
fire was started, and the fire department
were quickly on hand,but for
tunately (and strangely, too,) there
was no need of their services.
Some idea of the power of the con
cussion may be gained from the
fact that the persons in the second
story above were knocked off their
feet, and pictures hanging in rooms
in the third story were shaken from
their nails to the floor, The strang
est thing about the explosion is
that nobody was hurt.
