[Special to The Times-Democrat..] \VAsmtiGaToN, Feb. ll.-The IRepub lican Senators will probably decide withinl the next few days whether patty policy demands the rejection of the Inomination of Hiugh S. Thompson to be Civil Service Commissioner, It is held by the Republican lawyers in the Senate that as long as there are two va antcies there is no legal commission, and thIer.efore, if Mrr. Thtompson's noma inaltion is not confirmed, the work of the clvil service commission must stop ulntii the 4th of March. Senator Allison said as much as this ill a speech a few days ago, and at the time he made his remarks, Judge Edgerton was to all intents and purpo. sts ea active official. The reason why the Itpublicant Senators are so ex tremely anxious to tie the hands of the commission is that they hope to find a way to prevent the carrying out of the order of the Prusident placing the 5000 employrs of the railway mail ser vice under the operation of the civil service law. This order is to take effect on Feb. 15. To see this great army of appointees, two-thirds of whom are Democrats, tiken from their control and surround ed with safeguards against removal is wllhat causes the greatest sorrow to the tapublicans, and they are nursing a fond hope that some way will be oitond to nullify the order.

(special to The Times-bemoeat.] ( WAHINGTON, Feb. 12.-As Mr.. . Riaine will probably be the next tet- t 4 retary of State his opinlon as to ,the advisability of purchasng Cuba is i n-. teresting. On this subject he asys ; "If t we were reaching after territory to in- t crease out wealth and strength, as well as to protect the health of the nation, I I should say that Cuba Is the outlyrleg island which the interests of theUnited States would natiurally seek. First, as to its relation to health. Cuba is the i natural home of pestilential diseases, r especial!y yellow fever. Under the di rection of our eminent sanltnrian' I have not the slightest doubts that the existing cause of this dreaded disease .I could be exterminated from every port of the territory of Cube, Tahe know-l edge which science makes as to the propagation of yellow fever germs has , Sput it in the power of health officers l well provided with means to remove ( the breeding spots from the face of the 1 earth, and I have not the least doubt but what it could be done were the I i island under our control. '"In point of economy It would be cheaper for the United States to l boy the island from Spain at almost t any cost rather than it should be a con. staunt menace to the behitlh and pros. 1 perity of the Southern Btates. The cost, t S(tiredly and Indirectly, to the business ( I of the country during the last yellow ( fever epidemic in the Mississippt Val t. ley was greeter than the value of Cuba, even if you put it on a mere money i basis. But when you consider the peril to life which the fever Constantly I brings, its purchase wouldi not be dear at any price. -The next object whiob soakes It Svaluable is its relation to the Unitaed Stlates as a strategic point. It lies I close, very close, to tbhe southern ex. I tremity of Fiorida, and its western and Sis still nearer Yucatan. In this way it ! practically controls the Guolof oMexico. It actually commatds positIons which we ought, in the natunrl order of Sthines, possess and control. f "In regard to, its contributlngto our t wealth, Cubs, in the hands of the Yankeepeople, and by that I meois the thrifty, energetic, ieventiveAAmer. sican racP, would add Immensely to our prosperity.

At 11 .. o'clock another and a stronger shuck J s. oceurred, leading all to believe that t in another would follow. F;r this reason, , to 0o one retired to resl. Thus all were t ar awake when, at 4:90 a. wu., a movement I ,A occurred which was mtore than a sim-. t ipleearthquake, being really a fearful l N cataclysm similar to that .f September, t at 1841, and which did ilumense dteramg I o. In the eities of S n Jose and Heredis e at and the villages of Raba, Santa Barbara, a t JSae ilsphal de Hietedia, COrecia and t, Santo Dmtuingo, and in many smaller I ,a b|aulets. The edifices which" suffered I 0. most in San Jose were the cathedral, I i, theCartmen and Mareed churches, the a to presidential palace, the artillery bar. t racks, the National palace, toe I central barracks, the National print- < I. lug ofles anrli the Union bank. I It may be truly said that not to a single house escaped injury, C e many of which are not safe to - live in, and others are completely i 't wrecked. It bas been necessary to close c the churches and prohibit worship ltu I- them. The whole streets are blocked I F, with ruins. No traise ran until the d ir bridges were examined and found in 1 'n gnod order. Losses In San Jose amount c Sto more than 12,000,000 while all the principal ediflces in Alejuella are 1 damaged, a e At La Guns, distant some six miles C from here, a most extraordinary geo. a Slogical phenomenon took place and r h the earth has assumed the appearance ' tr of a rough sea. The father of a family c Snd four of his children were buried a t together, while the mother and her a 1 young child were thrown by the mto- I tton of the earth a distance of 1,000 C r pmetras, although she declares she be. i 1lieve the earth swallowed her and t then ejrcted her where she was found. C There the hills have changed their position and the ground is full of h cracks. The town of Heredla also aui. h is fered. In Caatago, Limon and Punta r et Arenas the rumbling of the earth was r not noted. Some people claim that I asimatic movements are due to the I t- Poas and some to the Irasu, but to ( which volcano has been the cause no t Sonue can esay. Since the first shocks a number of small ones have been ex. t perienced, but they have done no fur. ther damage. On December 16 the J Irasu -was in eruption and the people t in Cartago were still in a state of r in alarm. t Ig l. JAEBS i i BLAINE. L to latervlewed by Col. Julian Allen of I North Carolina.

IHe also took occasion to ex- d I press his deepest interest in the devol- a 1I opment in the South and his earnest I to hope of the settlement of the race rt problem in a way that will inure to s l the best interest of the whole people. C e The South, he said, would have to $ u5 work out the solution of the race pro- c m blem for itself. In the selection of fair h 'e o lcals for the Southern States Mr. SBlamne led Col. Allen to think that he I )t would favor the appolntment of con @ servative Republicans, men who had ; laid aside the hatreds and bitterness of t m war time9 and who were aiming at the i o best interests of the country andi hap-. I at piness of the people. In many ways in s' Mr. Blatne expressed his concern for I 's the welfare of the South and his in- I ,, terest in its success. Hle convinced I - Colonel Allen that when he took his v Sseat io l'resident Ilarrison's cabinet he I I would prove as firm a Iliett if thie s, South as that portion of the country e 7 ever bad.

SGOOD NEWS. Ready for a Commencement of Work on the N. O. N., & I. S. Railroead-A Few Preliminarles to be Closed Up by the City-Coestrnction to Regia in Le+s Than a Month. [Natelrez De mocrat.] (en. John H. Rice, President of the New Orleans, Natehes & Fort Scott Railroad Co., reached our city by the train yesterday forenoon, and when the Democrat's man tackled him for an item he said he was not here for talk, but for business. He came to Natches this time for the purpose of superin. tending the final closing up in a legal manner of the rights of way through the city to the river bank, and as soou as this is done the work ot construction will commence. These rights of way have already been surveyed and locat ed, but the city authorities have never gone through the formality of con demnlng and paying. for them (whe ever necessary) and deedoing them to the company, and this is quite essen tial before the company begins the work of building. To accomplish this, will be the work of but a very short time, as the Board of Aldermen has already (at the last meeting) vested the Mayor with full an, norily to eat In the premises, and as he is as anxious as any one else to hasten the early commencement of operations he will proceed in the premises without any unnecessary delay. Thus it will be seen that the tlime of the beginning of the work of construction now depends almost entirely upon the action of our city authorities, and if they find them. selves able to carry out their part of the agreement dirt-throwing on the New Orleans, Natchel & Fort Scott Railroad in Natchez will begin in two or three weeks at the out aide. Gen. Rice is. Justly, highly elatd at the state of affairs connected with his favorite enterprise, and those who have had an abiding faith in Its ulti mate accomplishment, share this jubilant feeling with him. He has labored eatnestly and perstistently fur the past two years, in season and out, against, at timnes, obstacles that seemed almost insurmountable, but now he Is sure that he is on the threshold of a realization of hlis fondet hopes. For the last eighteen months railroad building has been at a very low ebb in every part of the country, and new enterprises have not been encouraged. There have in this period been nume rous strike!, rallroad.rate cuttings, over building of useless lines, a falling off in railroad earnings every where, andageneraldemoralization in all rail. road offerings which brought about a decline in stocks and loss of confidence in railroad securities or investments. Happily this depression is passing away, and our railroad is probably the first of the numerous extensive through lines projected to feel the beneficent effects of a restoration of cotufidence in railroad construction. No ono can now gainsay that the dark cloud that has' hung somewhat portentously over our city has not a salver lining. Through the rifts in Its sombreness we can see beyoud the bright and prosperous future that lies before our city. The early eonstrne lion of the road now appears to be be yond doubt or cavil, and almost before cur citizens know it, they will see the dirt flying, nod witness tie track layers as busy as bees riveting the iron hands that will forever bind Ithe cotton fields of the Sunny South with the great grain and coal fields +ff the boundless West. The turning of time fleet slpadeful of earth on the N. 0. N. & b'. H. ltailroad will signify the Inauguration of a new and happy epoch in tihe history of our city, and the beginning of a new era of prosperity and advaneunclltl for us. The date of this event is witlhint a month. Ynva:l WTars of ltue Flttutre. S',i ntitile A tn,,rl,.. 1.
