_The Times contrasts the French .revo-
lntion of 1848 with the present revola-
tion in Spain. In the former the people
ruled, when the power given to Sen.
Cavaignac was turned against s the too-
pie's sovereignty after a short but terrific
struggle. In Spain the' army governs,
yet the army, although ruling, has
neither - conquered nor fought for its
power. A straggle with the 'pea.
pie • is• always imminent, - but the
contending forces are unequal and
the odds are against the people. Among
Spanish statesmen there is no Cavaignao
to try 'Stratagem, corruption and sur.
Trtser,--but dare not employ force. The
-11pyoltitlon ban - hardly moved a step and
the whole affair lies in's nut shell. As
from the beginning, the question is"
still. whether the army or the people
-aretrihave the upper hand.

[By Telegraph. to the Pittetturzb Gazette.).
WASHINGTON, D. C., September
Southern gentleman who Is visiting
Cuba, for the purpose of ascertaining the
state of affairs for himself and his friends,
writes from Cardenas, of Sep
tember let, as follows : '
'The news of the recent succeu of the
Cubans near Puerto Principe, Sagas La
Grande and Los Tunas has given impe
tus end new lite - fo .the patriot cause,
:which will prove irreslatable. The en
thilsiaam of the Cubans knows na
bounds.'They sie 'HMI* ntriaSef and
floating - to the liberating erhay'by hthi•
dreds. 'The Spanish openly assert that the
revolution will :be successful, that the
'Spanish force is almost destroyed; that
Spain can't send sufficient reinforce mantel
to regain positions lost by. these battles.
It is reported Shit . the. thgrani in tliese
engsgementi fought with great deterixd
nation and daring, and snowed disci
pline equal to that of regular troops. The
Spanish troops everywhere- are demur
alized. They have no confidence in their
soldiers. Many of the regulars ate
known to sympathize with the Cuban..
The revolution, I honestly believe ' will
succeed and the independencof e. Cuba
be attained. .
"The outrages perpetrated upon unof
fending and helpless people by the vol
unteers and their friends, are of a =it
revolting character, and exceed• even
those perpetrated by the Indians on
the frontier of the United States. Every
where evidence of these outrages can be
seen in buildings burned, churches des
troyed and hundreds of hometess,-starv-
Ing wanderers. This once beautiful and
luxuriant island is now a barren waste,
and should war be prolonged six
months, it will be almost uninhabitable.
Even now, all along the , eastern coast
of the island, the people are on the very
verge of starvation, and are dying by
hundreds, from , disease superinduced
by want."

Zachary Taylor Hockenberry, who was
tried at the Minch term for the murder
of Miss Nancy:Ann McCandless slid con
victed, and whose ' counsel had moved
the Court for a new trial and made their
argument at the .Tune term.
The Court stated briefly that the pris
oner had received a fair and impartial
trial at the
. hands 'of his countrymen;
that he had been ably defended; that the
rulings of the Court upon all aoubtful
questions had been in his favor, and that
toe Court had nonsidered well and fully
all the 'circumstances surrounding the
case, and that they could not find any
thing upon' which they could found or
would be justified In granting a nets
trial, and hence it was out of their power
to do so.

Clerk of the Colullf he had anything tp
say why the sentence of the lawahould not
be passed upon hicn. The prlioner con-,
versed with his counsel a few moments, .

on the 4th. He, adverted to the reduction
in the debt, and •
The Democrats ask, "Where do you
get all this money?" We don't steal it.
We don't ilich it from the broad acres of
the Commonwealth. We do not tax
your property, your farms, your homes,
your . workshops, your tenements. If
they are taxed, it is by your. municipal,
county, or township authorities. We get
most of the money from corporations,
which, holding special privileges from
the Conatnonwealtb, are justly, made to
contribute to the 'government which pro=
teas And with the money thus
raised. we pay.for our common schools,
support thousands of soldiers' orpharie,
and give asylums to the:.unfortunate in

halt. Mr. Packer would' restore the tax
on real estate, and extencf his, protecting
wing to special corporate privileges; oat.
erwise your debt would go on decreasing.

Alluding to the Subject of pardons, the
Governor said tbafln their palmy days
the Democracy =pardoned' 'four or five
hundred criminalein a single year. ' The.
whOle , number oif - pardons during:lds
first year was lifty•two. In 1888. the.:_
number was ohe hundred and six, owing
to the fact that he could not see men
mulcted in seven and eight hundred del-
Isn Anofor simply enforcing **instate,
framed by the Legialature and signed
by the Governo r , _ .proventing deserters
from voting. During the current year
the number had reached but forty. mak
ing a total of one hundred and ninety
eight during his term. Murder, petlary,
arson, burglary. and kindred crimes
should not go unpunished under his ad
Tenement Monies.
Commissioner Dr. Stephen Smith,
Chairman of the Sanitary Committee,
made a report to the New York Board of

gave some interesting statements. He

from several reports made by Inspector
James to illustrate his remarks. There
are a faw- houses which are occupied by
the owner himself, or a careful agent,
which are models of neatness, and it is here
that the doctor finds a remedy for, the evils
complained of. He says that the trouble
is not in the crowding of peopletogether,
but in the total neglect.ofall'sanitary pre-
cautions.' He closes, therefOre, as follows:.
