A dispatch from Havana saya the bar racks of the Rural Guards at Pinar del Rio was blown up at 3 o'clock yesterday aftemoon snd 100 persous were killed. Owing to the race disturbnnces the dynsmite being used on tha various pub? lic works in tbat sectiou had been col lected and stored in tbe barracks, the quantity there yesterday baiaa 3,000 pounds. Orders bad been given for the removal of tbe dynamite yeaterday to the reguUr powder magszines, and the government reports state tbat the explo slonoccurred while this w?a being done. However, this was the day fixed by the negro conspirators for an uprising, the earth entering the tail ot Halley's comet to be the slgnal, and many euterlam the belief tbat ihe explosion waa the first overt act of the rovolutionists. The barracka iu which were quartcr ed the ruralcn, a nuuiber of public works employes, aud orhcers' fauiilies. ?ai completely destroyed. Commandant Ravena with all his family and other familtes are among the killed. A corpo ral of rurales ia tbe only survivor. Many buildings ln the vicinity of tbe barracks were wrecked. There is the most lntense exciteinent, both at Pinar del Rio and Havana, every one remembering the aboritive atteinr.r to start a rtvclntion scme time ago by murdering the aleeping rnrales in Iheir barracka at Gunabacoa, a few mil-a from Havana, which atrocity the late Senator Morna del Gado instigated. The negro upriaing. wbich Gen.
