PALATKA, FLORIDA. SATURDAY. .MAY 10, 188-t.
TKLEORAPIIIC SPAKICLES, THE LATEST NEWS FUOI ALL PARTS I$Y AVIKE AND CABLE. It is expected that the diplomatic tions between Great Britain and the Vat ican will be settled by next autumn. Captain R. II. Andrews started from Sumter, S. C, Wednesday to walk to Boston, Mass. He is 03 years old and is confident of success. One hundred and seventeen bodies have so far been recovered from the Po cahontas coal mine. A large force is kept at work night and day.

The latter hold land grants and the Spaniards tres passed uion their p'"ces. Ti'ey were ordered off, when they attacked the Brit ish with sheath knives. Two men were killed and four were wounded. The British took refuge on the American schooner City of Havana. Galveston. May 8. A speeial from New Laredo, Mex., says the establish ment of Francisco Viseava. one of the oldest commercial horses in Laredo, closed its doors yesterday. Veseaya an nounces that he cannot cont'nue business and pay the new stamp tax. TheSvamp tax requires him to pay $0,000 cash on his present stock. He says the new stamp act will raise the priee of many American goods, as a result of winch a large American trade for (lie purchase of contraband articles in Mexico, amount ing to several hundred thousard dollars annually, will be cut o'f from Mexico and a similar lucrative traffic will at once spring up on the American side. He be lieves the new tax greatly detrimental to Mexican interests. Richmond, Va., May 8. The Supreme Court of Appeals to-day reversed the de cision declaring unconstitutional the lav passed by the last Legislature providing for the election of registrars and judges of election by boards of three members chosen by that body for each t hy, town tmd county in the State, 1 ecause it is re quired of the members of said hoards to I e free-holders. This decision makes the election of registers and judges by these boards illegal and of no elfecu and con sequently takes the whole election ma chinery out of the hands of the Demo crats and replaces it who:v it was before the passage of the law ;n the hands of the Coalitionists. Tenor Singers Great Eaters. St. Louis Sioctator. Speaking of an Italian opera company I am reminded of the fact that nearly all Italian singers are enormous eaters. Cam panini eats tw ice as much as an ordinary man, and is at it all the time when lie is not singing or sleeping. I once traveled part of the way from Chicago to St. Louis on a special train employed to transport Col. Mapleson's opera company, and Cam panini spent a great jiortion of his time eating a kind of sausage that he had brought over from Italy. His wife also partook largely of it. There was so much garlic about it that it perfumed the car from one end to the other, and made one think of anything else in the world but the pretty lover's parts that the great tenor takes upon the stage. Brignoli is worse than Campanini. He has leen known to devour thirty-four lamb chops at one sitting by actual count. On another occasion he eou.-.umed a whole duck, then two hirge portions of roast lcf, either large enough for an or dinary ierson, and then took another whole duck, this besides soup. fish, and lessert.

The metal sched the crop is harvested, when, counting on j ule is to be equalized by reducing dutv inducing the peasantry to join him in ! on some articles and increasing" it on large nu-ubers, he will begin an aggres sive campaign. The Captain-General continues his as surances that the whole rebel band will be speedily captured. Gold is at 200, and the sugar crop is selling at lower prices than ever before known. These facts have greatly depressed financial circles, and make another disastrous panic al most inevitable. The chances of inter ference by the United States and ultimate annexation are openly discussed in the cafes throughout the island. STATE PRESS. Live Oak is to have a $2,000 artesian well. Drought is complained of in several parts of the State. A telegraph line is projected between Brooksville and Cedar Key via Otter Creek. G. M.

It is located three-fourths ot a mile west of Clay Springs. A new post office called Troy has been established at the east end of Lake Hoi- j den, at the residence of S. J.

The Crescent says the roasting-ear patches around Brooksville look very promising. Corn is six or seven feet high and making a fine show for one of the luxuries of spring. Probably the oldest citizen in Florida resides in Jefferson county. Mr. Barlow was bom in Augusta, Ga., in the year 1780, and is therefore one hundred and four years old, and is as vigorous as many men of sixty. A meeting of the business men of Ce dar Kev was held last week to devise bet ter means ot transportation between that. j place and tributary coatwise ports by j steamer. A resolution was adopted look- j ing to the establishment of such lines, ; and a committee was appointed to furth- j er the project. j The following was handed one day last ! week to a South Florida postal clerk: Wild wood, Fla., April 23, 1881.

Key est Democrat: The watchman at the county jail here was aroused Sun day evening by a fall, and upon proceed ing to one of the cells found Olofeo, a murderer, whose trial was to have taken place Monday, lying on his cot with an artery cut, from which blood was flow ing. No instrument of any kind could le found in the cell, but one of the pris oners was shaving with a piece of glass Sunday, and it is thought that he got possession of this. The Live Oak Intelligencer says: "South Florida papers have named their choice for Governor, and bring him to the front in the shape of the intelligent and bril lirnt young Senator from Hernando, Hon. A. S. Mann." Now, if our friend of the Intelligencer had read his South Florida exchanges for himself and formed his own ideas of their political senti- j ments, instead of taking them at second hand from the Times-Union, lie would I have known that they have dono nothing j of the kind. -We defy any one to name a single South Florida paper that has j published a line that would indicate that I the 'intelligent add brilliant young Sena- ! tor from Hernando" was the choice of I that paper. The truth of the matter is, that our contemporaries in other sections of the State have been, and. are, lalxvring industriously to manufacture a choice for us; but it won't work: we nronose to "paddle our own canoe." South Florida I will indicate by her votes in the State j Convention who her choice is.

As printed in yesterday's News. Judah P. Benjamin, the distinguished lawyer and advocate and ex-member of the Government of the Southern Confed eracy is dead. Mr. Benjamin died in his apartments in the Avenue Jena, Paris. A IiOndon telegram says that nearly four years ago Mr. Benjamin had a bad fall in Paris from a tram-car, on the road running parallel to the Seine. Forget ting that he was not quite as young as when last in New Orleans, he jumped, as had formerly been his habit when resi dent in the "Crescent City," from the ternal disorder, some symptoms of winch ' 1 , , had manifested themselves at Richmond, in "Virginia, during the American civil mr. benjamin's career. j It was in 1811 that Mr. Benjamin first ! saw the light upon the Danish Island of jt. Croix. There he remained with his )artnt3 for four years until the war was ovor t viit.n iv;s parents made their way to Charleston, in South Carolina, and thence, a little later on, to New Orleans, In that city Mr. Benjamin's boyhood was spent, until, in 1820, lie was sent, as a student, to Yale College in Connecticut. He returned in 1832 to New Orleans, and was immediatelj- called to the bar. He was sent a little later by the State of Louisiana to the Lmted States Senate at Washington; and after the death of Web ster, Clay, Calhoun, and Silas Wright, it was the opinion of man-, including the late Charles Sumner who, as regards po litical opinions, stood to Mr. Benjamin in the reiation of antipodean opposition that the Senator from Lousiana was the most eloquent orator in the Union. A description of the services rendered by Mr. Benjamin to the Confederate States during those five years of unparal lelled trial and effort between 1861 and 18G5, which saw the " Stars and bars" floating above the Capitol of Richmond, Virginia, would fill a volume. Many Southerners had done Tar more than Mr. Benjamin to bring on the secession of the Southern States; but when once the fatal step was taken no man served the cause of the South more superbly in the Cabinet than the orator whose last speech in the United States Senate before taking leave of it forever had sent an electric thrill throughout the whole civilized world. With the conclusion of the civil war, Mr. Benjamin had to effect his escape from Richmond, and he succeeded in making his way to the coast of Florida. After experiencing strange adventures in a strange craft laden with sponges, on board of which he put to sea, Mr. Benja min landed safely in England, to find that his fame as a lawyer and a states man had preceded him, and that the Confederacy which he served ho warmly had etill some friemds. Mainly by the advice and assistance of the late Chief Justice Pollock, Mr. Benjamin contrived to get called to the English bar without losing three years in keeping terms. He was 5 years when he first put on the wig and gown of an English barrister, and the tremendous experience through which he had already passed would have exhausted the energy of most public men. Yet the history of the English bar will hereafter have no prouder story to tell than that of the marvelous advance of Mr. Benjamin from the humble position he occupied as a junior in 1866 to the front rank of his profession in 1883.
