Horrors of the Insurrection in Hayti. VOODOOISM BEING PRACTICED. Legitime's Overthrow Imminent. Tbe Old World—Madrid Dynamiters. 1 Associated Press Dispatches to the Hebald.l Port-au-Prince, Hayti, December 30. —As this dispatch is being written the d 'position of Legitime by the dissatisfied citizens of the Capital, or by the advanc ing victorious troops of the North, under Hypolite, appears to be shortly expected by all but the immediate supporters of Legitime. He has thrown into prison all the prominent citizens and residents of the North in Prince suspected of oppos'ng him. Three battles have been fought and 10.9t by the Legitimists in the last ten days. During the rapid retreat to tbe Capital, two divisions of the Southern army deserted to the pursuing North eaers. A stand was made next day at a rising knoll of ground by the dispirited army of the South, but they were able to stand but a short time against Hypolite's assaults. The army of the North are entrenching themselves some twen'y miles from Port au-Prince, ompleting their lines of communication, reorganizing their aug mented army, and awaiting the arrival of recently purchased arms and muni tions of war. They are also devastating the great agricultural section where they are now encamped and from which Legitime received the greater portion of his supplies. General Hypolite having been elected and declared Provisional President by the Central and Northern Departments, on his capture of the Capital will demand a Congress of Deputies from all the De partments, and the election of a perman ent President, declaring Legitime's elec tion unconstitutional and void. He will probably then be the only candidate in the field. Reports of defeats and desertions have raised to a high pitch of excitement the inhabitants of this section, and hence Legitime is imprisoning all possible ring-leaders in the revolt against him. He is showing great activity in securing non-volunteers, through press-gangs who seize laborers in the fields and bring them to the barracks, frequently in chains, to prevent their escaping. Without law, life and property is un safe in this section. Excesses of every kinds are the r»lt\ the horrid cannibal istic rightß of Voodooism are revived, and reports reach this city of the meet ing of several thousand on Christmas night near Jacmel, and the sacrifice of a young girl and the greedy «c r « r nhl« for some portion of her half-cooked flesh. The devastation of the central portion of the island has been the cause of the rob bery of recently buried bodies and the devouring of the same. These are well authenticated facts. The steamship Haytien Republic is still in the hands of Admiral Luce, as agent of the owner, Mr. B. C. Morce. cannot receive her until she is in a more presentable state. While she has been thoroughly disinfected by the burgeon of the United States steamer Galena and her Captain, Mr. Thompson, her condiction by reason of her occu pancy by the Haytien guards is filthy in the extreme. Under command of Lieutenant Shiers, with a prize crew of eighteen men from the Galena, she will steam on January Ist to Santiago de Cuba, where she will be re-coaled and turned over officially to Mr. Morse, who will there collect a crew. The Galena will keep her in sight during tbe trip. While it is impossible to secure the $350,000 indemnity demanded for her detention and damage to tbe property of her owner and crew, it is thought it will be possible to secnre some cash down. The Government pleads poverty, but has receutly paid $100,000 for a former Eng lish mail steamer which it has fitted out as a gunboat, and on December 2(>th she paid to the steamer Andes $27,500 for 5,000 Winchester rifles, and 100,000 rounds of amunition, all in gold. It is also claimed that Legitime lias appropriated to his otvn privy purse all the remainder of the cash in the Treasury, and will fly by his fastest gun boat as soon as his fall is an assured fact. Initiate's official organ issues to the American and European press, under the title of One Unfamie, "An Outrage," a long statement defending the seizing of the Haytien Republic for having illegally run the blockade and saying it is deplor able for a great and historical nation,and republic as well, to abuse its power by oppressing a feeble nation in opposing the power of reason with its guns. It then goes on at some length to insinuate that the actions of the American Consul, Thompson, were decidedly biased and unfriendly to Hayti. THE HTHIIKI AMI. Allaire Which Soil Agitate Of f lilal Circles. Berlin, January B.—The result of Lord Salisbury's remonstrances in con nection with the Morier affair will prob ably appear shortly. The Government organs evince an uneasy desire to dis entangle themselves from the affair. The lieichsanzieger to-night publishes a letter tending to prove the truth of Morier's as sertion that he sent no news about the German's crossing the Moselle, because he had none to send. While the Liberal newspapers are rejoicing over what they call a Bismarckian blunder, they do not fail to censure Morier for his want of decorum in sending a heated letter di rectly to Count Herbert Bismarck, in stead of communicating in the usual manner through Sir Edward Malet, the British Ambassador. The charge of forgery has collapsed ntterlv. It is understood that the Samoan affairs will not be made the subject of special debate in the Reichstag, bnt will be referred to during the discussion of the Naval Budget, The disaster in Samoa has created a deep impression, and will strengthen the arguments of the anti-colonial party in the East 'Africa debate. The Kieler Zeitung states that the Samoan losses are tbe greatest in officers and men the German navy ever experienced in a transoceanic expe dition. The National Zeitung complains that America's recalling her Consul some time ago did no good, for it has been proved that tbe natives were led from an ambuscade by an American. Referring to the Morier incident, the Tageblatt says tbe Bismarcks are attack ing England, not Morier, and that they are ready to go to the length of seeking an alliance with Rusma if that is neces sary to ruin England's world-wife poei THE LOS ANGELES 'DAILY HERALD.

The Piliker-Lloyd says from a moral point of view Morier has perfectly vindicated his ctiHrflctcr« It is rumored that M. Zougleff, a Rus sian military attache who has just re turned here from St. Petersburg, has been authorized by the Cz.ir to give a most definite assurance of his_ pacific in tentions to Emperor Francis Joseph. The Cz»r is said to have de clared that be no longer doubted Austria's policy, and was convinced of the uprightness and loyalty of her intentions, and for his own part he was firmly resolved to do nothing to disturb the friendly relations between the two countries. The rumor must be accepted with all reserve, but it may herald an agreement on both sides to a "hands off" policy in regard to the Balkans. SPAIN. An Explosion In the Royal Palace — Widespread Alarm. Madrid', January 8 —An attempt to blow up the palace was made here to-day. No one was injured, and the only dam age done was the smashing of many windows. The petard with which the attempt was made was exploded) staircase of the palace. Great excite ment prevailed for the lime, the mem bers of the royal household being almost panic-stricken. Prime Minister Sagasta, as soon as he heard of the attempted outrage, hurried from Congress to the palace, where he at once was admitted to an audience with the Queen. Toe explosion has caused wide spread alarm. In the previous ex plosions the petards were carelessly and almost harmlessly constructed. The Governor of Madrid received an anonymous letter on Sunday, saying that the outrages would be continued. The explosions are supposed to be due to the recent raidings of a gambling house, the frequenters of which were arrested and fined, and the money found on the tables confiscated. MR. AND iMKS.
