NEWS PROM CUBA.
, Advises received in this city from lead
ers in the Cuban army to the 15th state
that on,the 13th and -14th the troops of
Quesada,stitioned between .Pa-•
erto Principe - snit Nuevltas, were at
tacked by General Letona, and in both
I instances were repulsed, on the first day
with a loss of fifty killed and wounded,
. and on the second with over one hun
dred. The Cubans retain their position
in the siege before Puerto Principe. The
troops under Gen. Faguerro, of Gen. Jor
occupying a position
some forty miles from St. Jago de
Cuba, were attacked on the 12th by
Spanish forces of over 1,200, and said to
have been commanded ny Gen.
se(' a person. After three hours' fight
ing the Spaniards were compelled to give
up the attack. Next day, having been
rein2orced. the Spanish General renewed
the attack with great vigor. Three assaulhs
were:made on theCnban position, but in
each the Spaniards , were repulsed.
In the last , attack• their loss was so great
that they were compelled to precipitate
a retreat. Gen. Jordan participated in
' the second day's . tight. The loss of Cu.
bane is set down at sixty-two killed and
- wounded. Among the killed were two
' officers. The Spanish loss is reported to
have been- over three hundred. They
media good their retreat to St. Jago. The -
Cubans are in good spirits and affected
but little by, the cholera and vomit() so
prevalent among the Spanish troops.
DECISION BY THE TREASURER.
E. The Secretary of the Treasury to-day
decided to permit the substitution of
ten-forties for five-twenties. or the ex
change of any gold bearing bonds now
held as security for circulating notes on
1 , the basis hitherto adopted, the ten-forties
to be received at eighty-five per cent. of
their par value, and all other gold bear
ing bonds at ninety per cent. Six per
cent. currency bonds issued by the
United States to the Pacific Railroad will
not be rimived as security for the cirou
.l lation of national banks, and the, ex
change of the gold bearing bonds is sub
ject hereafter to revision, if it shall be
found,: that such exchanges are so fre
quent'an to become onerous to De

GOLD SALES. •
The Secretary of the Treasury, on be
ing questioned on the subject, replied
that he had no intention at present of
selling gold, and that he did not expect
to sell any while the premium was at
the present figure. The impression at
the. Treasury is that it will go lower.
This seems to be founded on the fact
that United States bonds have advanced
in 'Europe in consequence of - the favor
able exhibit of Secretary Boutwell's
financial management, and that by the
time there is a demand for the shipment
of gold the crops will be ready to bring

(By Telenabb to Um Milburn' easetto.l
LONDof, July 22.—The compromise on
the Irish Church bill was the result- of
fear on the part of the Peers of the °tinge
quences threatened by a collision of the
two Houses of Parliament. Last night the
Tory Lords held a large meeting at a
private residence, and resolved to re
pudiate the Marquis of Salisbury, and
put themselves under the lead of Lord
Cairns. The latter was 'authorized to
make peace with the Ministry and ex
press the willln guess of the Peers toyield.
To-day Lord Cairns sought an inter
view with Earl Granville, and gave In
the submission of the Peers, whereupon
the Cabinet agreed to the compromise an
nounced to-night- The prompt and loud
expressions of popular indignation terri
fied the Lords, and thus has been post
poned for a while the threatened agita
LONDON, July 23.—There was a full at
tendance of members and spectators in
the House of Commons this evening.
When Mr. Gladstone rose to speak he
was greeted with great cheering. Un
der a heavy sense of responsibility, but
with profound isatislactioa, he moved
that the House agree to the amendments
inserted yesterday, without exception or
reservation. He called attention to the
excision from the preamble of the words
specifying the appropriation of surplus,
but as the point was better indicated in
the bill he thought it would be invidi-
Os and unnecessary to require a theo
retical and abstract declaration
in the preamble. The reinsertion
Or date of 1871 was not a token of vic
tory, but an indication of the joint and
(harmonious working of the Houses. He
reviewed the other amendments which
had met with objection, and said the sub
stance of the Government proposals had
remained Virtually unaltered. He asked
the Henget° discard every word that
might have been uttered tending to em
bitter the questiomand he apologized for
any warmth of feeling that he might
have shown. He congratulated the
House on_the satisfabtory settlement
which had baerkarrived at and pralaed
thiiihility and moderation with Which
the'debatea had been_tonducted /*I
Granville and radreetelitit''''"'"T
Sir Roundell Palmer,` - tiltintbp r for
Richmond, approved , t he course vdkich
had been taken. It was honorable and ,
fair to both sides. The point agreed
upon was one which all must accept. In
case of an adverse decision we must bow
to the superior force of those who con
trol events, and when that time hascome
it is folly not to see and acknowledge the
fact. He thought the compromise was
substantially a concession to the Church,
and concluded his speech with * com
pliment to Mr. Gladstone on the tone
and temper of the debate.
Right Hon. Mr. `D'lsraeli said that
when the difference between the Houses
was only a matter of detail, he felt that a
delay in the settlement was only of
doubtful advantage, and might result in
disasters and difficulties of ad inconsid
erable kind. The compromise was not
an unconditional surrender. The most
essential points in the amendmenti
had been assented , to, and be ,
thought that the House and the
country would deem the compromise
fair and just. He hoped that the present
would be the last occasion when political
circumstances would be dealt with by
abstract principles. We bad been on the
eve of a collision, occasioned by a mis
understanding tween the two Houses,
at a time when each had deported itself
in a manner to show the possession of
the confidence and satisfaction of the
country. Surely all would hall with
satisfaction and ratify with pleasure the
settlement arrived at as satisfactory and
After the conclusion of Mr. D'lsmell'a
speech, the arrangements were agreed to
without division. The result was re
ceived with great cheering.
