Somo excitcment has been clused In Havana by tbe ar serted diaappearance of a lieutenaut governor of a dis trict in tbo interior, with fhe proceeds in bis pocket of two hundred niggers, lauded within his Jnrisdlctl o, seized and aold by him. Ky law they were free by the faet of capture, und their aervlces duo to tbe goveru.nent ! in the quality of rmancipulnt; therefore this person, If I tbe allegation be true, ban nut only sold free negroes and put tbo proceeds In his pocket, bat baa defrauded ibe i government, to say nothing of the disgrace ho baa heaped | on blnualf aa un ollcer holding a high post of trust. Hla ??disappearance,' however, strange to say, waanoeecret, for I > aw him at tbe opera ouly a night or two baforo be shipped himself on board tbe Corsica, on tho last trip of that steamer to New York. For this reason, I doubt very much the addltlor to tbe story that tho government here baa sent police oll'cers to New York lu search of him; for I naturally suppose that what was known to me In regard to him before his departure must havo boon kr^wn to the government In fact, permitting liitn to l<< ,vo ao quietly urd openly is a species or admisslou that tlturo is no poeltlve proof against him, tad t'lereforo I id not care to speak about tbe matter before, much less jcntion tho name of the individual in qtostlon.
