Lownow, August 10.—The _Keening
'Telegraph, Liberal, of yesterday, con
tained an - editorial on the case of Mr.
- Haggerty, United States Consul at Glass
.. The writeroafter paying a tribute
-to the uniform good faith of the Ameri
-can Execntive;'so far as Ferilanism is
-concerned, ',lrurtilles the refusal of the
British Government to grant an ezequa•
fur; that Grant had no notion of the re
-cord of Mr. Haggerty, and • under the
circumstances the Government had no
• opinion but to refuse to- acknowledge
him, add the justice of the refusal would
doubtless be recognized at - Washington.
' The Harvard crew were out for prac
tice this evening. They made faster
, time than at the previous trial, though
they rowed against wind andtide. They
used the London Club boat, and the
-crew was composed as follows: Lyman.
Albrow, Loring, (strbke) Fay and Sim

The Times in an article on the relations
between Spain and Cuba says: "Between
the military punctiliaof the former and
thapatriotio fanaticism of the latter, the
'interests of both - are likely to suffer, es
- pecially when ' the questions at issue
• should be--brought under control of ,
sound reason and their discussion kept
- free froth the influence of impulse and
passion. If-it can be proved• that-the
separation of the colony from the mother .
;country is unavoidable and not a remote
contingency, it seems the heighth of
' madness to carry on hostlhties - fraught
with ruin to either side "
After reviewing the revolution in Spain,
the writer continues: "Improvident and
-helpless as Marshal Prim's government
may be, it can safely be proclaimed the
' , test Spain mild have under the present
: elrcutnatanees. Its chances of improve
, • anent lie in the power of directing' its
energies to domeszic organization and
reform, undisturbed by foreign'or colo
nial complication. Strip the government
of its beet troops for distant expeditions,
draw the resources of the country for an
-intestine struggle with a kindred race,
then tell us whether any amount of
genius, character or good will can raise
the members of the government to a
_ with' the difilinitles of the situa
• #OD."
- After inquiring into the causes of the
rising in Cuba, the Times says: .
• "Tne'most fanatical of the oppoaltion
are well aware that Spain can only tem
porarily crush the rebellions spirit in the
;colony.. Were Spain quit of the' colony,
without compensation, thanksgivings for
he happy riddance might well be, sung
. thronghout the Peninsula: but ifs large
sum of money is received into the bar

BINGHAMTON, N. Y., August 10.—
The Managers of the Erie Rail
road were busy this forenoon pre
paring to prosecute the Albany and
Susquehanna Railway. Little tittstwor
thy information concerning the position
of the case can be ascertained, but as
usual in such a ff airs the streets are full
of rtimors. It is known three sneedal
trains, filled with workmen or "guerril
las," ao called, left this city this forenoon
before n i n e ,' - on :the' Albany and Snit
quehanna Railroad, in Erie care. The
first train took about two hundred and
the second one hundred and fifty men.
They were under charge of li. D. Rucker,
Gen Supt. of the Erie Railroad, and H.
D. V. Pratt, Division Agent. They took
a good Supply of flour and beef and sp•?
peered more like a military expedition
than on a civil mission. Most of the
men engaged on this end of the Sneque
henna Railroad are lying idle. Up to
.noon no trains had arrived from Albany
since yesterday forenoon. It is reported
the train which 'left here last evening
was seised at Afton. by a large force of
men in the Rattufay interest, and, their
intention is to retake Binghaixdon, if
they And they ate strong enough.'
B/NGHAMTON, IC Y.., August lb.—The
Susquehannaßailroad war is the ab
sPrbing subject of interest here. Judge
Peckham's order to Fisk, to show cause
why he should not be enjoined and re
strained from acting as receiver, also
directs that Sherlifa and other edema
alms the line shall, under no circum
stances, enforce Judge Bernard's order
to give Fisk poesession of the, road.
Thisprder failed to reach here, as the
'conductor of the three P. M. train yes
terday received information at napes
Ville that the Erie Company had seized
the officers, engines, etc., at Bingham
tom, and returned with the train. 'Al
though a telegraphic announcement of,
the order was received here, that had
no legal effect and could not be success
'fully offered, to the writ which Judge
.datnard bad leaned.
It is reported, upon authority which
gives it plausibility, that the Pennsylva
nia Railroad'Company has telegraphed
Ramsey pledging its support, if it should
regaire a million dollars, and that the
Delaware and Laokawana and its aux
iliaries have made a similar offer. The
New York Central Company is also as
