‘ Meeting Yesterday.
DAYANA, Nov. o.—Tho tribunal at Santiago
do Cuba, before whom tbo persons captured on
tbo Virginias woro brought, condemned Bor
toardoYarona, Pedro Oospodos, Jesus Bolsol,
and Gen. Ryan to death, and tboy woro shot on
tho morning of tbo dth. A lottor, numerously
signed, hod beon forwarded to Prosidont'Orant,
urging him to nso his authority and power to re
lieve tho passengers on board tho captured
stpamor from their imprisonment and impending
execution. •
Not. 7.—Tho Dopnrtmont of
State, np to noon to-day, had received no official
information concerning the steamer Virginias,
further than tho more fact of her capture. . Tho
NaVy Department has no official none on tho
subject, there being no Government vessels in
tho neighborhood of the plado of hor capture.
The registers' granted to vessels continue until
thoy are sold or change their names. No Intelli
gence relating to either of those points as to
tho Virginias; has reached tho departments. Tho
•books of tho Treasury Department show that
tho register which was originally granted to tho
Virginlus remains unchanged. Tho nows, re
ceived to-day, of tho execution of tho prominent
persons captured oh board of tho Vlrgiuius oc
casions much surprise in all circles, it not being
* opposed that.thoir trial would bo so summary
was. Tho subjoot was discussed at tho
Afcbmot council.
The greater portion of tho cargo of tho stoam-
Br.Vlrginius was thrown overboard or consumed
furnaces before hor capture.
•• * t . . LATER.
Washinoton. Nov. 7.—Official dispatches ro-
ColVod by the Department of State show that tho
- yirginina was captured 6 miles from tho coast of
Jamaica. At tho instance of Minister Sickles,
instructions wore sent from tho Government at
Madrid to wait orders from tho Homo Govern
ment boforo inflicting tho penalties on tho
passengers or crow of the Virginias. This order
wis probably received on tho evening of tho sth
or morning of tho Gtb, too late, as it appears
from tho dispatches received from Cuba to-day,
to be respected.

WAsnwaTON, D. 0., Nov. 7.—Caban sympa
thizers have boon buzzing around tbo head of
the Government to-day, demanding the recogni
tion of Cuba, on account of the blood thirsty
promptness of the Spanish authorities at fuail
f? Americans and patriots captured on
the Virginias. The President is a strong sym
pathizer with the Cubans, but is prevented from
making it manifest, on tho one hand by Mr.
Pish, and oh tho other by the Son Domingo

Government bestowed upon themselves.

TK o JLlck Observatory*
The Trucked (Nov.) of Oct. 25
gives this into*.hgonoo; “Col. A. >V. Von
Schmidt returned yesterday from Tahoe City.
Ho reports that ho iias found a suitable place
for tho location of tbs' Lick Obsorvaiiory, about
two miles from Taboo City, and between that
place and Hot Springs. The place selected for
tho observatory is on a peninsula of land which
extends into the lake. Tho elevation Js about
300 feet above tho lake, and G/760 above the sea
level. 'The site commands a,magnificent view;
of the'lake and tho groat Tahoe basin. It is':
naturally easy accessible from Tahoe City, Hot
Springs, or tho lake shore, and at a trifling ctx
penee the entire peninsula can be converted into,
a beautiful park, with walks, carriage-roads, ofc.
There Is an abundance of stately forest, treos,
water without limit, and with any pressure ire
qulred.- Snow, at tuo point located for the ob
servatory, rarely over falls to. a depth exceeding
4 foot. Von.. Schmidt left for ban Francisco
to see if the site selected is satisfactory, antfi if
a perfect title to the property can bo obtabaod.
The reasons for locating tho observatory at or in
tho vicinity of Tahoe are tho clearness oi the
atmosphere and tho comparatively light fall of
snow for the altitude. At Summit Station, on
tho Central Pacific Road, which is about - 7,000
feet abovo tho sea, - the prevalence of strong
winds would bo an obstacle to astronomical] ob
servations, and then snow falls there frequently
to a depth of from 15 to 20 foot.

■ '■From the Xew York sun, Nov. S.
. An unusually largo audience assembled last
| night in tho Church of tho Disciples to hear tho
' Rev. Henry Ward Beooher’e now lecture, “Tho
Wastes and Burdens of Life.”, In opening bis
lecture, ho said society* In a measure, resembled
a ship in a storm at sea, laboring very often,
loss from any unwieldincsa in herself than from
the unnecessary loads which had boon placed
upon her, and from the many unnecessary leaks
1 against. which' she had to contend. Onb of tho
£roatest wastes, ofUfo.tas avoidable sickness.
C inon who. wore to die would, but die quickly,
oil might bo well, but, they would not; they
usually loft a long track of wretchedness to
1 . mark, their illness. Another evil was the reck
less extravagance ; of some and the miserable
feebleness of otliorpv la tho former case men
i B Wvhig to ; butain more thanthovwero
willing to pay for, and in tho latter they woro
weakly, tmng to perform more than they were

Ignorance was another. waste of life. In
, Europo.tho testa applied to the intelligent work
t men showed tho English to stand first, and after
■ them followed respectively the German. and tho
, qwisa;- H similar tests .wore applied in. this
; country Americans would probably stand first of
| all. They had a versatility of genius and adapt
> ability for all kinds of work, which should place
i them in the foremost place. Intelligence was a
. capital which no State could afford to allow to
Bland idle. Misdirected, energies wore possibly
the greatest wastes of aIL Tho old man who had
worked his way to tho topmost rung of the lad
t dor says, “I have had a hard time of it. but I
' don't intend my son to have as hard a life as
mine has been.” Yes, ho has had a hard time of
it, and that is what has mode him tho hard old
j follow ho is, and tho easy life he intends for his
son will, make ; him proportionately soft. Tno
: old man says to. his wife, “ What shall we make
of our son ?” and tho old lady replies, “ 1 should

be best fitted for a journeyman carpenter.
■ At this point an usher gave Mr. Beecher a
glass of water, and was unspeakably confused
by tho lecturer putting It to one side with. “ No,
1 never drink while speaking.” As soon as tho
laughter which followed - the action and words
had subsided, Mr. Beecher said, “ I take this
opportunity of giving a lesson to orators younger
: than myself. This habit of drinking water while
speaking is entirely useless. Because some
groat lecturers see fit to indulge in it young
! speakers think it necessary, and practice it until
, they cannot do without It, There is nothing, so
Soruicioua as laziness, and the lazy man never
oes what he can get another to' do for him ; so
.if yon habitually supply your mouth with mois
ture it will soon cease to make any for itself.
Forty years ago I sold to my.mouth, what mois
ture you .require you must secrete for yourself,
and it has done so over since. Now,” concluded
Mr. Beecher, “what was I saying when I was
interrupted?”
Lying was a gra at weakness of life 5 in this all
must agree, for every one abhorred lying when
practiced by any one else, [Laughter.] Theft
•was not so bad, for tho stolen goods woro not
lost; they merely went into other hands. Bank
-1 ruptolca wore not great wastes, for tho money
lost - by one. wont into the pockets of many.
Numerous bladders might bo pricked and tho
air escape, but it wae not lost; it was only air
, before and. it was air still, though in another
, place. [Laughter.] If. dishonesty were banish
ed from the city to-night, Now York would not,
, know itself to-morrow morning; if it were
banished from the capital it surpassed the
imagination of man to conceive what the result
would bo. [Laughter.]
. : One of tho greatest wastes of all was dissipa
tion, and tho extent to which this vice had seized
upon the young men of the city was hardly
known. “If any of you will go down to Dolmon
-1 ico’s, ” said Mr. Boechor, “ you will boo some
thing, if you care to observe it, tbat might make
[the hardest hearts ache. I have not booh there
;: myself. Not thatl should remain away If I wished
:to go; lam jealous of my personal liberty, aud
1 will not allow any man to declare to mo what I
; shall drink or what I shall not drink. 1 regulate
my own actions : they aro not generally wrong,
!l hope, but that is not the’question ; my rights
: first, and I shall decide upon tho use I snail put
them to afterward. What I demand myself 1
freely giye £0 others, and I do not play tub spy
upon young men ; but I know their, besotting
sin oa well as though I did.”
' Speaking of tho terrible waste of war, Mr.
Beecher said the nations of Europe wore sinking '
under this corse. Franco expended out of her.
annual revenue 9U nor cent in teaching men how
to destroy each other, and but 4 per cent was
appropriated for other education. Tho aggre
gate war debt of tho nations of the earih
amounted to no loss than $21,000,000,000. Tho
lecturer closed by denouncing tho manner in
which the people of Now York and Brooklyn
ignored State affairs. A Republic could exist
only by tho undivided efforts of all; aud tbat
man‘who thought society was an organization
formed simply for his security deserved neither
the name of a good citizen, a good Christian, ,
or a good man. The time was at bond whoa
men should bavo that assistance from women
which they should havo bad long ago, and that
union would foreshadow a brighter ora for tho
future.
A Lonely .Duel*
From the St. Joieph {Mo.) Herald.
A duel without witnesses was fought last Sat
urday in Taney County, near the county-seat of
Forsythe. John Goforth and Simon Melville
wont out to hunt doer. Each was armed with
the old-fashioned squirrel rifle. Goforth said to
Melville: “ I hoar that you have boon Ivlng on
me." " Wbat did you hear I said ?" asked Mel
ville. “That I had been boating my wife."
11 And so you have," replied Melville. "Those
. who told it Uod; and when you repeated it you
also lied s aud you knew at the time you were
'lying." These were pretty plain words, and
they brought about some pretty plain shooting.
Doth men agreed to stop off thirty yards each
wheel at the word, and firo immediately after
wheeling. They did so. Melville, when he had
measured off his thirty steps, called out
"Wheel," and both men turned and fired. Go
forth was shot in the right arm and Melville in
the right shoulder. Both wounds were paiuful.
They managed, however, to walk into Forsythe,
where a physician extracted both balls, and con
soled Goforth with tbo information that unless
ho was very careful ho might havo to out his arm
off. This version of the case agrees in the
with the stories of both men.

Romantic Suicide*
A loiter from SbaugUai says: “A rrmantio
incident is reported to have taken place at
Whampoa not many days ago. Some nine dam
sels, all maidens, living with different families
in too village, seemed to bevo entertained an
aversion to married life. Seeing the misery and
toll to which tho members of tho families with
whom they lived wore subjected, and above all
tho slavo-Uko obedience of wives to tho
wills of their husbands, the damsels in
question . came to tho resolution of
putting an end to their earthly careers,
which is hero carried Into effect by a different
modus operand! to that of opium-poisoning In
vogue in Hong Kong. The nine damsels mot by
appointment on the bank of tho river, at the en
trance of one of the creeks in tho vicinity of
Brown’s Folly, attired in heavy winter garments,
which they had sown all together In order to pre
vent a separation. While thus .united in body,
heart, and mind, the damsels plunged into tho
deep. As this happened close to tho timo of tho
festival of the seven female genii, who descend
ed from heaven, and are called, tho * Seven Bis
ters,'all sorts of superstitious conclusions aro
drawn from it.”
Juggernnth Sacrifices*
A Calcutta, letter of Sept. 23 to tho London
Times eays : . .
Two more deaths from an idol-car are just re-
Sortod from a village in Madura, near Capo
omorin. This Is surprising, for the object of
the recent discussion in Bengal has been to ro
dneo the Juggornath cars to the small size
and lightness of those of Madras, which are
made of bamboo. Tho Bengal Government Is
now issuing tho final orders on-this subject,'
after its correspondence with the Government of
India. Magistrates of districts are instructed to
take all stops necessary to prevent danger to
life or safety on. such occasions, to ascertain in
each case that proper precautions are taken by
tho parties concerned, and to see tbat no one is
compelled todrag tho car against his will. They
aro warned to avoid tho scandal of the past
season, and Tt not themselves to undertake tho
mechanical arrangements necessary to the safe
dragging of the car. Tho next festival in Juno
and July will, I fear, show a repetition of the
accidents of past years, uuloss tho Magistrates
do what this order really means them to do,
suppress tho 40-foot cars as a dangerous nui
sance under tho Criminal Procedure Code sec
tion, from which there is no appeal.

Donaldson* ,
From ihe Philadelvhia Bulletin, Oct, 31.
Tho aeronaut, Donaldson, gave further proof,
yesterday, of hie inability to manager balloon
nroporly. He made an ascension from Newark,
N. J. and shortly, aficrword the ballroa
came tumbling down,, and the aeronaut, having
lost, all control of it, was tossed out against a
bouse-and seriously wounded. The loss of tho
Graphic balloon, near Now. Canaan, Cons,
was attributable almost entirely to tbo fact that
Donaldson was unequal to a very, trying emer
gency which amoro experienced man would have
mot with coolness and without evil consequen
ces.’'Sir. ’ John Wise' baß”’inode" nearly
450 . ascensions,, and , has never suffered
severe injuries or placed the lives of any of bis
fellow-passengers in peril. Tbo explanation of
this is that he' has always exhibited the same
prudence which induced him to abandon tbo
Graphic enterprise os soon as be discovered that
the balloon was not a safe one. Ho has both
courage and sense. Donaldson appears to have
a bravo heart and a very foolish head.
A Trade Swindle* . .
Fromthe Jacksonville (III.) Journal.
One of our merchants calls our attention to
'tuo fact tliafc the manufacturers- of ribbons,
lacoa, bralda, and a number of-other ortioloa,
aro guilty of a swindle that should be stopped,
A roll of ribbon is put. up. and marked **l2
yards, warranted, fast colors excepted,” which
means the roll of ribbon if fast color is not full
12 yards. The reason given by the manufactur
ers is that a ribbon not fast color can bo sold as
well and for as high a prico as one which is fast
1 colors.—that it costs more to produce the latter
thantho former, aud the only way they can get
oven is to make it short in measurement. Other
excuses ore given. for making braids and laces
