LIFE IN VIENNA. The Unusual Gathering of Royalty in Honor of the Exhibition. A SURFEIT OF PRINCES AND FLUNKEYS. Summer Sunshine and Brilliant Uniforms in the Prater. THE EMPEROR ON HORSEBACK. low the Blue-Blooded Notabilities Are At tired and Attended. Vienna, May 5, 1873. There are men of otherwise good repute, sober citizens, staid and solemn, fulfilling all their duties in life with perfect respectability and almost total abstinence?men as regards their potations who, once or twice a year, as the fit may seize them, will enter npon a violent debauch. They absent themselves from their homes and their usual sur roundings, and after the lapse of two weeks, which has been spent either in solitary guzzlings or in Bacchanalian orgies with the lowest company, they return home somewhat shamefaced and pursue the even tenor of their way for another twelvemonth. They have satisfied even to reple tion their craving for drink, they are nauseated with alcohol of every form, and return with thank fulness to pure limpid water. I think if I had for a friend a fellow citizen In Whom I observed certain symptoms of a weakness for aristocratic institutions I would treat him as the men I have just alluded to treat themselves. 1 would take him away from his simple yet comfort able home, from the social status which, if it be gTeat, he has acquired by merit, from which, if it be low, there is no reason why he should not raise litmseif, and I would plant him here in this city of Vienna at the present moment. I vonld bring him liere at this time, when this capital (where ancient lineage and high rank are always more thought of than in any other part of Europe) is exulting In a perfect glut of blue-blooded aristocracy; when stars and garters are as common as dirty faces and tinshod feet, an? when the little news ordinarily given in the Journals is absolutely crowded out by the titles of the foreign guests, all of which are set jortn at mil lengtn. A GLUT OP ROYALTY. The old King or Saxony told Talma, the great French actor, that If he would come to Dresden he should play "before a pit full of kings." Adellna Pattl might, if she chose, sing here before a par terre crowded with princes. The heirs apparent to four of the European reigning dynasties are here? the Crown Princes of Germany, Denmark and Bel gium and the Prince of Wales. Here, too, are half a hundred little princekins, Tiohelts and aurch auctUs. very poor in pocket, but very pompous in person, with their titles duly registered in the "Almanach de Gotha," and their pretentions duly recognized at this most ceremonious of courts. Each of these, from the greatest to the smallest, brings with him a staff, important or insignificant, according to its leader's position or his purse? comptrollers general and high stewards, equerries and attaches "gallopers" and private secretaries. The retinue of the Prince of Wales amd Prince Arthur, of England, is so great that it cannot be accommodated in the same palace with them, but is boarded out here and there at different hotels, while some hohPli from Sascrschlnkensteln will have all his staff in the person of an enormous Jflger, who in tawdry uniform and fierce cocked hat, sits on the box of his master's carriage and roars to the common people to "clear the way." On eitaer side the door of every hotel which has the happiness of numbering a distinguished personage among its guests, is a sentry marching up and down and in a perpetual state of presenting arms to some one or other Important personage con stantly passing; lounging in the portal or every palace (and the palaces here arc as numerous as the dry goods stores in Broadway) is an enormous Janitor, a beautllnl being dressed in long coat cov ered with lace and an enormous cocked' hat and bearing a long wand with a massive silver handle. When you add to all these the soldiers in unirorm, the private coachmen and footmen, the police (horse and foot) and the public commissioners, or errand runners, all of whom wear a special livery, you can readily imagine that Vienna is a city wherein, at least, the lust of the eye is likely to be gratified. SUNSHINE IN VIENNA. For those who rejoice in such sights there could fiat have been a prettier scene than that to be ob served in the Prater on Saturday afternoon. Last week the Prater looked stern and bare. It had been nipped by the bitter northeast wind and re sented the indignity. On Saturday it was glowing in a fierce June sunshine. The recent showers had given an emerald brightness to the turf;, the milk white cones were coming coyly forth nnder the same genial inspiration; while far away in the distance one could catch glimpses of fields and farm houses and orchards filled with fruit trees in blossom, reaching to the horizon, bounded by the outlines of purple mountains standing out against a cloudless sky. I had come out of the Exhibition building, which was hot, dusty and nolsv, but singularly empty or visitors considering the novelty of the Institution and the fact that Strauss' band was playing for the delectation or those who prererred music to progress, and was wondering what had become or all the people, when a glance at the Prater was sufficient to satisry my doubts. THE LOUNGERS IN THE PRATER. Far away as the eye could stretch each side or the Drive was thickly lined with onlookers, Viennese or all kinds; priests in slouched hats and long, dark-brown coats reaching to their heels, with bine collars round their necks; rotund smug burghers in black broadcloth, great In watch chains adorning their stout stomachs and massive rings decorating their rat forefingers; female bour Omtrte, rather bulgy in the waist, rather gummy about the ankles, rather clumsy about the bands and rather coarse as regards the hair, but brightreyed, intelligent and good-tempered; spectacled professors from the colleges and hos pitals, pretty nursemaids, with their charges; arasp-waisted officers ana private soldiers, princi pally remarkable for the way In which their ears are set on to their heads, like the double handles to ancient drinking cups; foreigners, too, in ahoals?the Hungarians, in knee-hoots, braided frockcoat and dark woollen caps; Polish Jews, in trreaae-stained gabardines, with greasy ringlets banging over their shonlders; Servian peasants, covered with their heavy woolsKlns, and English men, m that universal costume of checked suit and round hat. In which that eccentric nation de lights to travel. BLUB BLOOn MARCHING IN REVIEW. What is the reason of the gathering together of this crowd, and what have they eome out to see ? The lust of the flesh and the lust or the eye and the pride or life! Nearly all the foreign notabilities ?eem to be driving up and down in review order and giving the people a chance of thoroughly staring at them. If yon are a big bug you must put up with the inconveniences as well as enjoy the pleasures of the position. Favorite actors at Athens ran the risk of being smothered with the garments which their admirers cast at them. Voltaire, on his last appearance In public, sras pelted with roses, and the gentleman from Milwaukee, after a visit to Washington, being asked if he had seen the President, remarked that be had "trodden all his toes into saas, and all but Shook his hand off." They have occasionally to -?pay the penalty of their exalted position," as the newspaper writers say, and this afternoon they were on liandL. nere, in an open barouche and hashing along at his horses' sharpest trot, Is the Crowu fruice oj uci^naiyr, with the yoiitmul Ugjd{ of Denmark by hia side. A grave and even somewhat fierce looking man IB Untertr Fritz, broad browed aad heavy Jawed and squarely ball v. Not mnch or a society man, I stioald say, recalling ratber Scott's description of Marmlon Hi* Miusre turned joint* and rtreneth of limb Kbowfd him no carpet knight to trim; But in close light a warrior grim. In ramp a leader aage. The wives of the two princes are In another car nage by themselves?Victoria of Prussia, plump and genial and rosy looking, a prettier version order mother, the Queen of England, In her best days; the Princess of Denmark, more rraglle and delicate. The Count ot Planders Is on horseback, a situation in which he shows te great advautage, and the Prince of Denmark, who has Just come ont of the Exhibition, Is driving In a low victoria witb Baron Schwartz by his Bide. Every other carriage has its one or two occupants in uniform. Austrlans In white and scarlet, Russians In white and gold, Prus sians in blue, with crimson facings, and the Marlug British scarlet glowing in the hot sun. Wearied with uniforms and sickened with shakos, ( seize upon an openjktcre and order the ooachman to drive into the country. Bnt I am not free from it yet, lor at the end ot the Prater, far away from the din, the bustle and the mob, I come upon a OKNTL8MAN IN UNIFORM on a black charger, and a lady looking remarkably Englisn In her dark blae uniform and stovepipe hat, and In the grace and ease with which she manages the fretting, fnmlng chestnut she is riding. A glance tells me that these are the Aus trian Emperor and Empress, and the coachman confirms my impression. They are attended but by two grooms, In plain black liveries, and while I am looking at them they turn rein and gallop over the fresh green turf to the distant woods. Doubt less they nave had enough or being bowed and scraped to and are glad of a little peace and quiet. EDMUND YATES. THE PRESBYTERIAN tiENERAL ASSEMBLY. Baltimore, Md., May 21, 1873. To-day IB the sixth of the General Assembly or the Presbyterian Church. The session was opened with prayer by Judge Dirriekson, of Erie. The Assembly accepted an Invitation to visit the Ine briate Asylum on Saturday afternoon. Dr. Ilerrlck Johnson rose with some hesitation to a question of prlvUege in reference to the action of the Assembly in regard to the report on the Centennial Celebration. The Assembly had retused to reconsider Its action. He now proposed to otfer a substitute for the first resolution of the commit tee, to which there had been so much objection, which he thought would express the sympa tny and the approbation- of the Church in celebrating the Centennial anniversary and obviate the objections to the first resolution. hp asked the unanimous consent of the Assembly for the introduction of hiB substitute. Therebeing no objection, Dr. Johnson's substitute was read an" unanimously adopted It is mere y a verbal change, declaring that it is appropriate and expedient that the Church should l,nPr"v? the occasion of the celebration "to set forth the h.ftnrv ririnplnles and polity of the Church, and to make a' Jrateful record of the goodness of God to us as a people," the words quoted being in addl "Dr'NiccofeSman of the Committee on Bills onrf overtures submitted ft report on the ovei tures in reirard'to the consolidation of the Boards or the Church and the simplification of their ma ?htn?rv the committee say they have considered the overtures on the subject lrom the presby of Iowa Lansing, Nassau, Crawlords lille Lone Island and Baltimore and rec commend that a special committee of seven be take charire of these overtures and &TXn to the next Assembly whether a consolida tion would tond to economy and increased efflol pnev and in such case to Bubmit a plan embody Ing t he consolidation of the Boards.

This heavy indebtedness o tffe Hoard Is owing to the steady aud healthful Growth of the mission work. The report says "The financial condition thus shown is such as to call for wise councils in the assembly, and a gen erous spirit of praver throughout the Church. H<?v.

The semi-centennial anniversary Convention of the Episcopal Church in Georgia assembled at Chnst church, In this city, at half-past ten o clock this morning.

After appointing standing commit tees the convention adjourned till hall-pasi nine o'clock to-morrow morning, when the annual ad dress of the Bishop of Georgia will t>e delivered. The Convention is largely attended and nas at tracted a great many visitors to the city. A SPNIEW WRECK. Halifax, N. S., May 21, 1873. The brlgantine Klldare, from Baltimore, reports that on the 6th Inst., on Big George Bank, she saw a schooner lying at anchor twenty feet under water The foremast, mainmast and malntopsall wt-rn standing. The Klldare went close up. and 'bodies were seen tn the cabin. The name ?on I not be made out. but the wreck was sup posed w be tbiitpi an American fiauiug scUooncr. THE STATE CAPITAL. Local Bill* Passed in the House?Enlargement of the Champlain Canal?A New Bill Bela tive to City Estimates and Pay ments?Amendments to the Constitution?A Veto by the Governor. Albany, Ma? 21,1873. The bills authorizing a third of a mill tax for de flcieucy Id tne Sinking Fund and for new work on the canals; providing ways and means for the sup port of the government; providing (or a settle ment of tbe claim of the Filth and the Ninth Regi ments National Guards (or uniforms worn out in the war; incorporating the Brooklyn Elevated Salety Railway Company, and the bill amending the bank ing law by authorizing any number of persons to estaoiish a Dank of circulation and deposit with a capital of $60,000 in places of lesH than 0,000 inhabi tants were all passed In the House to-day. The bill to provide for the completion of the ENLARGEMENT OF Till CHAM PLAIN CANAL was taken up In committee of the whole of the House in the evening session. Mr. Jacobs moved to strike eut the provision for levying a tax of $200,000 lor the year 1874. He said the next Legis lature could provide lor 1874 if it was necessary. It was sufficient for this Legislature to provide for 1873. Mr. Hatcheiler hoped tbe motion would not prevail. He said It would be more economical to provide for the whole amount or $50o,ouo for the two years, so that It might be definitely known that the money would be forthcoming. If tbat was done tbe contracts could be made at better advantage. Mr. Jacobs insisted that the principle was a bad one. Let each Legislature, be said, take care of tbe expenditure for each year. Mr. Batcheller moved that tbe committee rise and re port progress before the questlou on Mr. Jacobs' motion was taken, which was carried. In the Louse Mr. Jacobs renewed his motion, and said if only $260,000 were needed why ask for $600,000. Mr. Batctieller said tbat $600,ooo were needed, but It was thought inexpedient to extend the tax over two years. Mr. Jacobs?Then, If von need $500,000 this year let us put that amount In the bill. I am opposed to tills roundabout way to get large appropriations. Rut I am not opposed to giving the canals all they need. Mr. Weed explained that the Senate was opposed to the larger amount, and to put it in now would jeopardize the bill. The questlou was taken on Mr. Jacobs' motion and it was lost?41 t* 50. Tbe bill was then or dered to a third reading. BOARD OF EDUCATION. TUB PUBLIC PARRS AND THE Till 1(D JUDICIAL COURT HOUSE. In the Senate to-day Mr. Welssman Introduced a bill orovidlDg that the Board of Estimate ana Ap portionment of New York city is hereby authorized at any time before July 1, by concurrent vote of tbe members of the said Hoard, to reconsider, revise and redetermine any estimate made under the pro visions of section 8, chapter 674 of the Laws o( 1871, and their decision shall be final.

AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION. Mr. James Wood, from the Judiciary Committee, reported the amendments to the constitution ready for a third reading. Article 1 ol the present constitution Is retaiued In the new one. Article 2, on the qualifications of voters, was adopted as amended. Articles 4. 6, 0, 7 and 8 are nut slightly amended. Article 9 and 10 are left as in the old constitution and articles 11, 12 and 13 as amended by tne Commission were adopted. Article 14 Is left as in tbe old constitution and articles 15 and 16, as proposed by the Commission, were adopted. Article 3, relative to tbe Legisla ture, was considered at great length, various amendments being offered. The third section was finally adopted as presented by the Constitutional uoHunieeion. TnR "PRINTING" BILL, defeated yesterday, was recalled from the tabic to day on a motion to reconsider by Mr. Murphy, and pending further discussion of It the Senate went into Executive Session, wherein George C. Burdett, of New York, was confirmed Port W arden, In place of Samuel Leggett, deceased. THE GILBERT ELEVATED. Still another Supplementary Gilbert Elevated Railroad bill was introduced tills morning by Mr. Tlemann. It relates exclusively to route aud pro vides that the road phall turn out or Sixth avenue at Fortieth street, instead of Fiity-thlrd street as heretofore. TUB WE8TCHE8TRR ANNEXATION BILL, as submitted to suit the Governor's suggestion for a submission of the question to the people of the towns interested and of New York, was passed. THE SUPPLY BILL occupied the eveuing in the Senate. Several ad ditional items were presented and accepted, though D. P. Wood strenuously opposed all of thetn. A disposition to dispute and wrangle over nearly every item, however insignificant, was no ticed which may retain the supply bill In the Sen ate for the next three days, and proportionately delay adjournment. THE OALWAY RELIEF BILL VETOED. Governor Dlx sent the following veto message to the Senate to-night Stit* or New York, ) Exkcvtivr Ciiambkk, Albany, May 21, 1873. \ Toth* Se.n*tk?I ri'tnrn without my signature senate bill No. 174, entitled''An act lor the relict ot James (lal way." Tlie bill directs the Comptroller of the citv of New York to rotund to James Galw;iy certain moneys paid hy him a* assessments, annulled subsequent to such payment tiy the Supreme Court It i? the business of every person on whose property assess ments arc maue to see that they arc regular. All have the same facilities for so doing. In this case the payment was made hy (lalway, who supposed the assessment to he legal. Others obtained subsequently a decision that It was not so, and he seeks to obtain, through the Legislature, the henent of the decision. Cas,--gof this description are constantly occurring In the city of New York. I may sav they may be numbered bv thousands, and it would lead to endless contusion It all money so paid could he recovered. I can not think that it is the Iciritituate province of the Legislature to Interpose Its authoritr tor the purpose of settling pri vate claims against municipal corporations. There arc legal remedies in s"ch cases, as well as In transncUon* between individuals; and If these remedies are !o?t through a mistake of the claimant or through a want of diligence on his part he should not he permitted to use the legislative power of the State to shield bini from tho consequence! of his neglect. (Signed.) JOHN A. DIX. The veto was sustained, twenty-seven voting against the passage or the bill over the veto. The report of the Congressional Apportionment Committee was read and agreed to without discus sion. A NEW LOCAL OPTION BILL, with the Governor's clause inserted permitting the people to vote separately on spirituous liquors sod cider, was reported by Mr. Crawford this even ing. THE ENGLISH CASK The Committee on Grievances made a report to night on the complaint of Stephen English. It was laid on the table, and thus the case la probably ended. THE LOCAL IMPROVEMENT BILL, which became somewhat famous a week or fo ago, will lie reported to-morrow, almost without altera tion. LITEBABY CHIT-CHAT. There was once a member of Congress who dis tinguished himself by always writing the name of the Supreme Being with a little p. But the Spectator, In an article on "The Literary Sin of Singularity," points out the fact that Mr. John Morley, through, out the two volumes of his "Rousseau," denies the capital letter to nearly all words In which English men arc accustomed to find it. Not only does he write "christians"' and "trinity," but he has "bo lief in god," the "idea of god," Ac. The Pali Mall Gazette courteously styles Hon. Caleb Cushlng's book on the Alabama claims "au extraordinary flood of blackguardism." A paragraph In the Biralo a few days ago indi cated that there was a rumor that, owing to a serious difficulty with the heirs of the late Chief Justice Chase as to the possession and use of certain papers, Jndge Warden had abandoned the proposed biography of Judge Chase. Wc are author ized to say that Judge Warden has not abandoned his work and that in due course of tliuo ina bvok will be pubiWUted. THE HERALD AMD THE ARCTIC EXPE DITION.

(Prom the Yonkers Gazette.] The New York Herald of Saturday last accom plished another bit or journalistic enterprise by announcing ahead of all other paper* the late of Captain KlalL. commander of the Arctic exploring expedition. In all the pre vious journalistic enter prises of the Herald wealth has been Its Imme diate aid, but this last accomplishment Is achieved by procuring in anticipation of luture happenings correspondents who are mindful of the Interests of tneir employer In almost every nook and corner of the globe. Truly the Herald Is one of the greatest literary institutions in the world, worthy of the motto, primus inter pares. [Prom the PlattBbnrg (N. Y.) Republican.] Ab usua', the Nkw York Hekald comes out ahead of all its competitors, and even the govern ment Itself, In getting at the news of the disaster to the Arctic expedition. A man, it seems, cannot hide himself, even in the interior of Africa, so that a Herald reporter will not find him out. If you are so unfortunate as to sink to the bottom or the sea he ib there almost as soon as von, with his pen cil and note-book, to describe your appearance and surroundings; he knows more about the Modocs than our soldiers do; he stands upon the shore awaiting the shipwrecked mariners, no matter what point on the globe they are making for, and gets the first interview, and wc suppose that if he chose, and thought it would pay, he would inter view the man in the moon himself. The Herald reporter is, in fact, ubiquitous. THE HERALD AND THE VIENNA EXPOSITION. [From the Urbana (Ohio) Citizen.] The enterprise of the Nkw Yoke Herald is won dertul. Every issue of that paper presents its readers with either a triple or quadruple sheet. This is done to accommodate its immense adver tising patronage, and Its extensive correspond ence In all parts or the world. The other day it presented its German readers with a full page, in German, of a description or the Vienna Exposition, telegraphed across the ocean at Immense expense. The Herald is certainly ahead of all competition in newspaper enterprise in this country, it not in the world. [From the Rntler County (I'a.) Citizen.] The New Yoke Herald is the best newspaper pub lished in the world. Open its pages and you will And "special despatches" from all quarters of the globe, ir anything transpires down in the depths or the sea, on the earth, or in the air, the Irrepres sible New Yore Herald correspondent is there to record it. [From the Keokuk (lowa) Gate City.] The New York Herald's first instalment ol Vienna Exposition correspondence was an unparalleled feat or newspaper enterprise. There were two let ters in English?one written by Edmund Yates and the other by John Russell Young; and two letters In German?one by Louise Mtthlbach and the other by Rerthold Auerbach. The account was all tele graphic, the German letters alone occupying seven columns. No other paper in the world tried such a performance. THE HERALD AND ITS ENTERPRISE. [From the Rarboursvlllv , West Va.) Press.] The New Yore Herald pays the highest price for news and has salaried correspondents to con tribute to its columns irom all quarters or the globe. Everything occurring within the reach or these wide awake contributors, whether it be in the wilds or Africa, the burning sands of Cuba or the lava beds of Oregon, is carefully gathered and spread before the thousands of readers of the Herald within tweny-four hours of the date of their occurrence. [From the Portland Press.] The New York Herald prints a quintuple sheet about every Sunday, which contains one hundred and twenty columns, thirty-seven being reading. Lire is too brier and litlul to allow one to do justice to such papers. [From the Abbeville (Ala.) Register.] The last number or the New York Daily Herald received at this office is a quintuple sheet, contain ing one hundred and twenty columns, or these* eighty-three are advertisements and the balance reading matter or the most Interesting character from ull parts of the world. The enterprise exhib ited by the management of this journal is truly wonderful. If anything or an important nature transpires at our very doors we can hear or it, with full particulars, through the Herald as soon as any other channel, and sometimes sooner.

The State Temperance Committee have issued a call, inviting the members of the executive com mittees of tbe various temperance organizations , in the state to meet with them In this city on Tues day, May 27, to consult in reference to uture ac tion In view of the veto of the Local Prohibition bill. GRIME IHJER8EI, Acquittal of a mulatto Girl on Trial for Murdering Her Child?Conviction of an Attempted Auauln. In February last a mulatto girl, named Elizabeth Taylor, seventeen years of age, was arrested In I Orange and locked up in the connty jail at Newark I to await trial on a charge of having murdered her Illegitimate infant by throwing it Into an outhouse, the body of which was lound and its death de clared to have been the result of exposure and neglect. Elizabeth admitted throwing the child In the cesspool, though she had declared at the time to trlends that she had given It to a ladv to take care of, but that she iell on It in the street and killed It accidentally and tnen, becoming alarmed, threw the corpse away.

The Cuban Major General Shot with Two Ballets in a Bloody Battle?Spanish ??joicing and the Body Ezpoeed to Pnblio View? ?ait Humbert at the Bier? The Captain General'* Opin ion of the Criaia Havana, May 17. 1873. Tlie steamer from Nnevltaa arrived yesterday and enables me to furnish the following farther details of the death of General Ignaeio Agra monte:?At Puerto Principe, on the evening ol thi> 11th, the news circulated with surprising rapidity or an important engagement that morning at tho poirero (cuttle farm) Jlmaguayfi, twenty-four miles from the city, between a large force ol In surgents, calculated at eight hundred, horse and loot, under command of General Ignaeio Agra monte, und the Spanish troops, under Lieutenant Colonel Rodriguez do Leon, whose uumbers have since been ottlclally stated as 400 men o* tho Leon regiment, 250 Hying Infantry, with one can non and sixty mounted guerillas. Two day* previous to tills engagement the Insurgents had successfully ambuscaded a Spanish force and killed Colonel Leonardo Abril, Captains Larambo and Torres und fifty-one men, and, consequently, a large force under Lieutenant Colonel Leon was detailed to pursue them. It was during tho engagement with tills column, which lasted one hour and a half, that the Cuban MAJOR (JENKHAL tONACIO AURAHONTE, the most prominent, bravest ami dreaded hero of the Insurrection, was killed in open battle by two bullets, one in the head and unother through tho neck. His death disheartened his followers and decided the uctlou in favor of tho Spaulsh, who, however, had already *jegun to give way before tho Impetuous und desperate bravery of tho Insur gents. SPANISH KKJOICING. The news of his death was received with great rejoicing by tho Spanish element in Puerto Prin cipe, and the report that his body would be brought into town the next morning attracted an lmmenso crowd the morning of the 12th to the Fort K1 Voluntarlo, near the entrance of the city, to wlt uess the arrival of the Spanish column, and in its march through ihe streets of the city was saluted by vivas and music from the assembled enthusi astic Spaniards. IIEMVKKY OF THE BODY. Lieutenant Colonel Leon, mouuted on Agra moutc's horse und surrounded by his stuif, rudo Into the Plaza San Juau dc Dlos und delivered Agrumonte's body to the authorities, and alter It had beeu lorinally identified it wua deposited lu one of the wards of the Hospital oi San Juan de Dlos, and exposed to public view, immense numbers of people ol all degrees nave since filed by tne pallet upon which the lnaniiuule lonn of the redoubtable Cuban hero was stretched, to cast one glance upon his stem and well known features, whieh a violent but glo rious death had not disfigured. Tho authorities und all other oillciuls received Colonel Leon aud' officers ol his command with great enthusiasm; the Spunisli casino gave tneui a lunch, and to every soldier an extra ration ol wino and cigars. THE KEKLINU IN HAVANA. The enthusiasm over this affair has reached Havana In a fee bin wav. and a committee from tho Casiuo Kspaiiol of tills city, with Its i'resldeut, ttxmo Sefior Don Julian de Zulueta at the head, culled upon the Captain General to congratulate liliu upon the success of the Spanish arms at Jimaguajd and the loss to tho insurrection of lgnaulo Agra monte. I am Informed His Excellency received them standing, thanking them lor their sympathy, but taking occasion to remind them that the Casino bspafiol was uu institution which lie understood had been formed lor pleasure and general club purposes, but that liad been endeavored to be an exponent of political opinions and to influence the manner or governing this Island. This His Excellency said he would uot allow. He would be glad ol their co-operation, but wanted none of their direction, and the first time they should attempt to lnterlere or meddle In politics he should consider they were going beyond tho purposes of their organization and be lorccd to shut them up. THE CAPTAIN GENERAL Is not on the best of terms with tne conservative Casino. He had been lnloruied that the Junta, composed of conspicuous oligurchlsts, had for wurded a message lrom Key West to their agent at Madrid, Don Manuel calvo, to disburse ireely large sums or money to have General Pleltaln re moved and have a Captain General belonging to tfie conservative party appointed of whom they could make a pliant tool. The foregolug has been related to your corre spondent by Spanish republicans, who are gener ally well posted In the mysteries of the innermost citadel Of casinolsm. SPANISH DISCOVERIES IN A HOSPITAL.

If thin Is true?the mind can scarcely imagine It?It is an act which can only be qualified us fiendish In the extreme. NEW CABLE BETWEEN HAVANA AND KEY WE8T. Key West, Fla., May 21, 1873. Captain J.
