Our tiles ?f El Faro Industrial de la Ilibana to ^ 'the 8th instant, brought by the Chailes Kershaw to Charleston, reached us yoatorday, by the Southern tnail. The news is not strikingly important. There is no intelligeioe of the landing of Lope*, or ot the whereabouts of the Pampero. The Faro Imlustrial contains soveral offioial documents relative to the ;nsurrection, which we translate and publish as a part of the history of Cuba. iho theatres of liuvana oontinucd to giro performances, which attracted numerous au'l'enoes. On the whole, it does not ap) ar (fiat U ? tears of the revolution have much agitated the ininda of the inhabitants, who had full confidence in the measures of the Governor General. The United States steamer Vixen had arrived at Havana on the f>tl< inato nt, from PensaooU. We learn from a bu^ueas letter, reoeived at Charleston, that there was a fair demand for sugar, yellows, browns sod cucurufhos. The stock on hand was not estimated at over one hundred thousand boxes. Tbo lust sales of rice were one hundred and six casks, from Philadelphia, at cloven rials. There was a better demand for exchange on the north, and drafts on New York were quoted at four por cent discount, although small sales were expected at a quarter less.

TKLKOICAP HtC. ARRIVAL FROM SAN JUAN DE CUBA. Boston, August 18, 1851. The brig Eliza Burgess arrived at this port this morn log from San Juan tie uuoa, witn antes to tne stu mat. She reports that all was perfectly quiet in that part of the inland Disturbances bad beed heard of on the other side, but the general opinion at Ban Juan was that they did not amount te much. NEWS FROM CARDENAS. Baltimosf., August 18,1861. The Savannah /feus contains a letter from Jacksonville, (where a vessel had arrived from Cardenas) which says it was reported, in the latter place, that the government troops had had several encounters with the patriots. One of some importance, in wfciehthe latter had completely routed the Spaniards, killing 100 men and capturing 14 pieces of artillery. It also confirms the i islng of Villa Clara, Trinidad, Santiago and Pinal del Rio. So there only remains to the Spanish government Havana and Matanxas in the Western department. BY MAIL. [From the Charleston News ] The steamer Wo. Gaston arrived yesterday morning from Florida. We learn by this arrival that, on Monday evening last, the lltb Instant, a brig arrived at Jacksonville. from Cardenas, in five days and reports that all the previous accounts published of the sucoess of the patriots over the Spanish troops are correct. That the patriots are dally inoreaslng in numbers, and are sanguine of success. They havo possession of many strong places, and are well supplied with arms and ammunition They were daily awaiting tho landing of General Lopez at some polot on the Island, whon there would be a general rising of the people. MOVEMENTS IN THE UNITED STATES. our new orleans correspondence. New Orleans, August 8, 1851. Departure of the Pampero with General Lopez and 500 Fillitmsttros?The Officers?The Cincinnati. The great popularity of the Herald in this part of the Union, and the habit your million readers have of looking to it for the earliest, fullest, and most relia' le information on all movement! and subject! of publio interest, induce me to volunteer to give you reliable accounts of transactions in this always important, but at present, unusually interesting point of observation. Tho news of the recent movement! ii Cuba fell upon our inflam mable population liko a bomb shell in a magazine. At this period of the war. there boinir no business, and but littlo to engage the attention of our stay-at-home populat on, auy new or startling intelligence is a God send. The Cuba revolt was an unexpected ami most acceptable relief to the ennui which for a few weeks enwrapped the Crescent City. Ever since the greatest excitement has pervaded our whole population. General meetings have boen held to forward the cause, which were more numerous and enthusiastic than ary I ever witnessed, during a residence of four or five years in this city. The feeling in favor of the Cohans extended to all classes and rose superior to all party ties. Whigs and dcmoorais, rich and poor, native and foreigners, all united oj Cuban grounds. The only dissenters are the ol Spaniards, and a few ef the more bigoted Citlio lies, who are under the induence of the Priests. The latter, it is said, have openly takoa tio del 1 against a movement which may result in the introduction of Protestantism into the present soundly Catholic island of Cuba. Our merchants, cspeoi ally those engaged in Western trade, are vsry warm in la ror of the movement, as it will, if suocestful recover a large portion of the Western trade whioh this city has iotl by railroads oonncctiug the Wes I nitb northern partD. xou irill perceive that all the paper* of any weight or influeuco of both political parlies, warmly espouse tbo c tuse. Sot Jo our sympathizers coniine themselves to mere symptthy and prefersions. Substantial aid has been promptly raised. There are now at least tf.WK) stout uicn raised, only waiting trat sportation to embark their lives and tneir all in the struggle of the Cubans.? Daily crowds of young men arrlvo from the neighboring .States, all well armed and fully accoutrtd, eager for the fray. Those gallaat young officers?Hawkins and Pickett, of Kentucky?the latter a good Spanish scholar, who has resided somelime in the West Indits, have two hundred picked riflemen of Kentucky, who will be among the flrst to embark in the next expedition. On Sunday last at 3 o'clock, A. M., the 1'ampero, which wa< built by Captain Hunter, for the Cbagres trade, an i which bus been plying for sometime between this c ly and Calvceton, left the wharf at I.afuyotte, with the advance party undorlieueral Lope* Tuoy wcio all picked men, and included 10(1 Spaniards and t('ieolcs, who have all lived in Cuba. They ate under the command of a young Creole, of Porto 1'tiro, of the name ofCoday, a stout fellow, seven feet high, and full of energy and decision of chwrac tor. General Pragay, the distinguished Hungarian, Adjutant General of Kl.ipka, at Cormorn, wbo has been in forty two batclcs, and is a most skilful and gallant officer, goes witb Kopci as second in comuisnu There are also twenty Hungarian irgmei t s in the party.

Alderman Shaw, (who wee partially audible ) said it was questionable whether the Common Council could make an offenoe a misdemeanor, though the charter gave extensive general powers Alderman Kelly said it was in the power of the Corporation to tine sueh parties, and grand juries could indiot them. Nothing can be made a misdemeanor without a State law. Alderman Shaw said something inaudible to the reporter. Alderman Britto* inaudible. The President inaudible. Alderman Dodge Inaudible.

Yet your committee would not recommend the appointment or rejection of any candidate on political ground* solely The office of the Chief of Police should be administered without party bias, and with a view only to the welfare of the public But jour committee have yet to learn that a candidate from roe party will not lie as free from I artisan lilaa. as a candidate from the other. The statement that an officer (elected from the minority party would hold himsell aloof from political influence, while one selected from the majority would be subjected to isuch influence, is so palpably absurd as to oarry with it ts own refutation. Sd. It was shown on the occasion of the Astor Place riot, that the nominee who bee been presented by the Mayor to this Board is watting in one of the essential qualifications of a Chief of Police?that of ability to lead and WW thu police fore* with that efficiency of which It la capable in the aupproMion of riots and the preservation of the public i>eaae. It 1* known on tho firs outbreak of this riot, on Monday night near the close of Mr Havemeyer's administration. the impunity with which the rioters were permitted to commit ect* of violence. to destroy property and endanger life, in presence of the Chief of Police and hie officers, without the interposition of such preventive efforts as could have been easily made, was a cause of the succeeding calamitous outrages. In consequence of the inefficiency of the police on

Monday night, it was currently believed by the rioters that no effectual resistance would l>e offered to the subsequent execution of their plans. Kmboldencd by this circumstance, a mob was organised to attack, burn and destroy the Astor Place Opera House while occupied by two thousand people Ou the following Thursday the business ol preparing to meet the mob was first laid before Mayor Wins!hull by the Chief of Poliee, who then stated that the police force was insufficient, and that it would be necessary to oall for the military, and, notwithstanding this opinion of the Cbb f of Polios, he had not taken the precaution to surest there who were known to have partiripati'd in the r*ot of Monday night, nor those who were to be leaders of the riot planned for Thursday night, notwithstanding nearly 3 days had intervened from the commencement of tha outbreak Indeed, it appears that preperatiocs lor this most formidable riot had been going on for a week or mere previous to the time when, in the opinion of the Chief of Police, the military was ncceseary to pri serve the peace. Yet duriug this interval he had made no efforts to prevent or suppress the riot in Its incipient measures. though well diri'cted ?f forts to this i-ff'Ct would undoubtedly have avoided the fatal consequences which ensued Tho conduct of the Chief of Police on that most disartrous night shows his unfitness to command on great emery eneb s Mayor Wisidbull who had but just entered on the duties of his office entrusted, as was proper he should, tho management of the police under g"ueral orders entirely to the Chief of Prlice. whose loug experience, as well as his position, justly devolved on him that responsibility Notwithstanding the police was inefficient, and the opinion that military fores was necessary, as given by the Chief of Polioe (whose position entitled his cpirion on such a point to be received as final authority); and though this opinion was coincided iu by the magisterial authorities consulted on the occasion. Mayor VYoodhull was. nevertheless averse tv such action, and only gnve a conditional order for the military to rend< xvou* at a celtain place, tin re to be called on hy the Chief of Polioe. if. ou trial, he should fled the police iu tmcivni I'OSltlVC (iru?'ip Wl-ir SIMP nuru ill mi uihoi of Police to prooeed to the place of danger with H the police force be could command for (dob fcrvlce, uml to ute all hi* to qnell the riot; but, In the eTent of hie force being inauflicirnt, then to tend for thr military. How did the Chief tf Police fu'iil this order ? He repaired to tbe Astor Place Opera House with but one quarter of the police, while on subsequent nights, when a much less force was necessary be ordered to tbe scene double the number of men; instead of drawing a circle around tbe bouse, in placing p< lice men at aucb points as would best enable thi m to stay the progr?M of the inob and protect the house, tbe Chief of I'oiioe retired within the theatre with the greater part of his force. l*aving outside romp*rutin ly but few men, most of whom were *ubasqusntly driven in Tbe mob was th?n lett in undisput?d and almost undisturbed pn-session on the outside and for an hrur or mire battered the wills and windows of tbe budding without resistance Thus was fulfill. <1 the c< mmsnd to exhaust tl;e entire poltes force in tfTirts to snppresa tbe riot. Nothwitbatinding the Chbf of Police seems to have early aliandonedaay earnest Oort to use the poll w In resistant)* to the mol>. he nevertheless failed to fulfil the order to send for the uiill tmy wt eu he should And the police unavailli g aod heucr tbe mob bad undisputed possession of the tl-lsl for an bourorimre during wlueh time It gathered atrength and btltf m ss. sufficient to Impel it to attack the military trocpa on their arrival The Coroner's jury, wblch held an Inquest over those who had taU-n on this occa-ion, gave in their Verdict, fablrh is subjoined ) tbe opinion that the police fores wus sufficient to have quelled the disturbance That the decs a?*d p*ra >ns mme to their deaths by gunshot wound*, and tbe giine being bred by the militsr/ by order cf the civil authorities of New York, and tUa the authorities were justified, under the existing circum stances in ordering the military to fire upon the m >b. And we further brtleve. that if a larger number of policemen bad been orderesl out, the necessity of a resort to the u*e of the military might have been avoided. Your committee coincide with this opinion, and believe that if tbe orders of the Mayor bad been obeyed, and the whole available strength of ths police employe . under a compel, nt leader, th* calamities of that bio d/ night might hare been avoided. 4th Ibe nominee wboee name has been pwwnted to this Board, baa been guilty cf neglect of duty to an inexcusable extrat.

All the acts passed by the Legislature, affecting the | charter of the elty, hare been an enlargement of its I powers, or auxiliary to their execution when In limitation. as p< wers having been expreeely absented to by tbe I people, and their validity made dependant upon that aeI sent. A denial of tbe power to annul a charter isadeI nial of tbe power to annul any provision of it. The distinction which has been made between the franchises grsated by a charter, and the political rights and privileges. Is without foundation, and expose i all I chartered rights to innovation and overthrow. The ex- ' pediency of submitting to amendments, for the oeea- I sional end Incidental convenience of the administration of the city government, affords no real grounds for the as> | sumption of the absolute right to make them ; while ; the udoplion of amendments to the charter, by the Legislator*, being wholly unauthorized, should work | no forfeiture of a chartered right. Acting upon the [ gnat principle that the charter Is inviolable, and finds ' Us guarantees in ui 1I1? constitutions hi tmiuuj times 1 adopted by the State standing as a compact between the I people of the State and the people of the city, I am com- t polled to deny the validity of the amendment under 1 w hich the nomination of Chief of i'olico has been mule. But the Legislature have passed the amendment which 1 compels the Meyer to make the nomination, or, it refused I by him. to work a etlll greater outrage, by changing the 1 appt lntieg powr. from the executive to the legislative d*| nrtmeh' ? a nmlt defining the charter of the city, aa r ue nilk unn,ii dful of the right* of the city, and regardless < 1 cods; queuees This Hoard, by a majority of j it* member*, le-eium* the validity of the amendment, and ; 1 entertain* tbe i m ii uwn i A on the part of the minority to assent to the nomination because the amendment itself is invalid, ! 1 would produce a result in relation to the nominee ad- ' 1 verse to their opinions, and leave the man in whom they ' have confidence standing before tbe public without a j i ; solitary vote for his confirmation I am forced, there| fore to or nsider the nomiuation aa properly before me, " and to ptss upon it. under the responsibility of my po- ? sltion Tbe nomination of Mr. Idatsell comes from the Chief t ! of tbe Department, and tbat oflloer, under tbe highest ' responsibility, has frankly aLd fearlessly assigned his 5 I reasous for making it.
