ent movement for the liberation of Cuba
from Spanish tyranny began on the 10th
of October last, when 127 men at Yara
under Gen. Carlos Manuel de Cespedes,
declared for the independence of the
island. In less than six month it has
spread until it 110 W embraces an area of
20,000 out of the 30,000 square miles in
cluded in the whole island. Within
limits there are 147 cities, kowns, and
villages, of which more than one half
are in the hands of the revolutionists.
Out of the 150,000 men able to bear
arms on the whole island, 45,000 are in
the ranks of the patriots : 20,000 of them
being stationed in the Eastern, and
15,000 in the Central department. The
total population of the district in re
bellion is 547,738, of which ,there are in
the Eastern Department 126,368 whites,
k 86,374• negroes free before the revolution,
and 51,778 slaves just emancipated by
the patriot leaders. In the Central
Department /the , numbers are 172,567
whites, 42,444 negroesformerly free, and
60,207 slaves newly freed. The patriots
ltaVe thus, it will be seen, given liberty
to more than 120,000 slaves, and when
they succeed in redeeming the - whole
island will do the same forlBo,ooo more.
The estimated wealth of the real es
tate in the territory held by the patriots
was, in - 1862, $550,000,000, and its indus
, try and commerce were reckoned as
representing a capital of $774,000,000.
The annual productions were : Sugar,
$62,000,000 ; tobacco, $15,000,000; I other
produce, $52,000.
It will thus be seen that the insurrec
tion is by no means the trifling matter

The San Fullleiz•co physicians, who
have reet•ntly been investigating facts
in elation to sniall pox, now prevail

t•:1;-th. :
A man who had been vaccinated, and
lately re-vaccinated with the usual_ re
oli exposure to the disease was
va>lentlY attacked by it and died in
cluck days. The second case was still
more singular. A man whose face bore
the charaeteristic marks ,of the disease
from an attack several years since, Avas
vacillated as a joke. To the surprise
of all, the virus took and the man had
an unusually severe case of kine pox,
which left on his arm what the physi
cians called a "splendid mark." A
month or two since the man was taken
ick,with the small pox In its most vi
rident and loathsome form, and died in
a feldays after being admitted to the

On Sunday night,-last week, a certain
ouiig man, possessed of rattier more
curiosity than discretion, undertook to
peep into the closply curtained window
of a respectable unmarried lady. Un
fortunately for Paul Pry, he had taken;
his situationon some loose boards which
covered a cellar way, and, greatly to
his astonishment, he was suddenly pre
cipitated into thei "cavernous depth
below," a distance of some eight or ten
feet! lie was promptly helped out of
his t»ipleasant predicament by the lady
of the house, and, hurriedly walked
away with the impression that he had
been neatly caught in a very contempt

.plainly enough, "Let him that think
eth he standeth take heed lest he fall !''

There-must be purchasers or there can
not be sellers. When a man leaves a
community somebody buys his &rm.—
That somebody, if he be a new comer,
will• seek to attract some of his old
friends and neighbors to his new loca
tion. It IS thus that emigration pro
duces immigration, just as a demand
for butter and cheese induces etlbrt to
create a supply of those edibles. Pop
ulation may be compared to a glacier,
being never at rest normally, but ever
pressing forward and outward. When
the glacier debouches upon a precipice,
or upon the sea coast, the air is resonant
with the noise of its disintegration as it
cracks and breaks off into nonresisting
space. So with populations; they crum
ble off at the edges, in search of equi
librium, and will continue so to do un
til the breadth of the Republic shall be
divided into farms and the centers of
population established for all time.
This is not intended to encourage
emigration. It is a plain statement of
fact and philosophy. We don't advise
men past 45 to go west. But if they do
go we see no reason to fear depopula
tion. Young men, especially single
men, ought to consider well before set
tling 'anywhere. If they are going
west, better go while single, prepare a
nest for the bird, then mate, and begin
et property together. If the advice
is brie will not harm the taker.
As the time goes on the peculiar fit
ness of Gen. Grant for the place : he oc
cupies because more and more apparent.
It is enough to know\ that the profess
ional fawners at the feet of power are
yelping in full chorus. Their bark is
worse than their bite. The President
has ignored them, big and little, and
still continues to exist. It was said,
with a great flourish of trumpets, that
the President would have to call in
these political threSd-needle men before
he could get the machine to run smooth
ly. The machine is running smoothly
—more smoothly than it ever run be
fore under pressure,—yet the thread
needle men have not been consulted.
Grant is making a clean sweep of
Johnsonized Republicans everywhere.
A great reduction in the advice of the
Departments is being made, hundreds
of sinecures, established to reward the
Democracy by the Johnson Adminis
tration, have been abolished, and offi
cial deadheading at the expense of the
Treasury appears to have received its
Well done, Grant ! Go on. If in a
year you. can stop leaks amounting to a
million dollars, you will have made a
good beginning. Let the thread-needle
men swear and the decapitated dead
heads revile. The people are with you.
Rejoice ! the world moves, even in
Pennsylvania. There ,is enough of
common Oense in the Legislature to
cut loose from the dead carcase of the
dark ages and lash to the age In which
we live. .
We are certain that it will rejoice
thinking men to learn that the act to
permit parties to a suit to testify in
court has become a law. For ages the
lawmakers contended that parties to
suits-at-law only lacked
me Courts of
:4ates abolished that non
sense some years ago. The State of
New York did the same thing. Penn
sylvania has "tried the same thing sev
eral times and never could get a major
ity of 133 men with sufficient strUi l iina
to hold up to the work.
. We call attention to the absurdity of
the old law : suitors, it said in effect,
cannot tell the truth when it makes
against them. Now the fact was, is,
and always must be, that if suitors .de
sire to gain a suit by false swearing,
they prefer having somebody else to do
the perjury. Never, since trial by
judge and jury was established, has
there been any'lack of men to swear
falsely for a consideration. Every lavi;-
yer knows who lies and who does not'
on examination. Every judge knows
the same thing. Jurors are quick to
detect lying on the witness stand. They
will still be judges of the reliability of
the testimony of all witnesses, as before.
The parties to a suit are the very men
who know most about it, usually. Why
the law should have debarred their tes
timony is as inexplicable as most laws
of medieval times. Thank heaven that
another old snag of the dark ages is ex
tracted. Out with them.
We can almost forgive the Legisla
ture its blunders in consideration of
this step forward.

" Democracy" sltys this bold paper,
" means lawlessness, insecurity to per

would wish to have the right man in the right

Horton is certainly a practical Educator. "One
