But the Case which has caused the most intense excitement among All classes being without a parallel in the annals of crime in Cuba has been the horrible murder of a German peddle named Maas who Well known.

Of Batu Day evening last a Man came to the Bouse and proposed to or.

The wife beg a ged of him not to go seeming to have a presentiment that evil would befall her husband but he Only laughed at her fears and after putting one thousand dollars in Bills and about one Hundred and fifty dollars in Gold in his pocket started out with the stranger. or. Maas had not returned at 11 of clock the wife became uneasy Aud informed the police but nothing was heard of him. The same evening a Carriage with two men inside drove to the door of a hotel near the outskirts of the City and asked tor a room at the same informing the landlord that they had a heavy trunk which they desired to leave themselves going about town for a Short while and that they would return at 10.30.

The attention of the people was drawn toward the trunk by the strange action of tie dogs and on raising trunk to see if a rat was underneath the Bottom of , the floor was covered with blood. The owner of the hotel now became aware that some terrible mystery was con Liei ted with the truck sent Lor the police Aud when the trunk was opened in presence of the authorities the body of the unfortunate Maas Cut in several pieces so to put it in was Louis Al ill in of the hotel together with every waiter guest Aud in fact.

This can be done in the Way indicated nud in no Jiki Multi a.c. . A / thursday night before the a closing of one of the terms of the Ohio a University at Athens some stude.n tried the old prank of smoking the faculty in their rooms. The re-7flit was expulsion of three. Student met he suspension of two. Why do the tool Mimas eat Ihu com Anglica new York Lew person Are. Aware that we have cannibals among . Yet we have a a them. The Tonkawa indians of Texas Are cannibals. Many years ago sex governor Runnels of Mississippi informed me that the notorious colonel James Bowie Tho inventor of the Bowie knife assured him that once when he a was with the Tonkawa they killed a Comanche Warrior in a skirmish who was duly cooked Aud ten up by them. He added that the Tonka Wasj out of compliment to him their guest offered him a piece of the Arm of the broiled Comanche which he from curiosity tasted and found tender and palatable. Some afterwards. Or. Powhattan 15. Archer of Brazoria stated that after the pm twin Creek fight lit which he was present and in which the texans aided by the Tonkawa routed the comanches he saw the Tonkawa warriors Cook and eat some of the comanches that had been slain Aud left on the Field. Still later divers of the rangers who were in the raid Aga inst the comanches in the Wichita mountains in 1857, where the Texas troops Wero accompanied by a considerable baud of Tonkawa warriors who acted their allies and guides stated that they saw the Tonkawa Cook and eat a Iron jacket a a noted chief of the comanches whose Iron scale Armor pierced by the bullets that slew him now hangs in the state Library of Texas. The Tonkawa pressed them to participate in the feast made upon their foe holding up Choice morsels to them and saying a Comanche meat Good a and seeming Hurt because they indignantly declined to partake. Only last�?oweek77 an Quot sex Lieut Nahr of the rangers assured me that after a successful fight of the Par. Of the Tevius and Tonkawa jointly against the comanches the ton Kawas was usual with them Cut up and broiled Aud roasted a Comanche chief who a was Patnou the slain and annoyed him by their import unities insisting that he should eat a slice from the leg of the Comanche which was done to a Crisp and was displayed before him in order that he might be tempted to partake. The Tonkawa told him that while they ate the comanches and vice versa neither of those tribes ate White people or other indians. He added that there Are now not less than Twenty disbanded rangers living in or near Austin testify in court of their own personal knowledge that the Tonkawa Are cannibals. A testimony to the same effect has been Given by officers of the regular army of the United. States who served on the Western Frontier of Texas before the rebellion. The proofs Are cumulative Aud Art unquestioned. The fact that to have caries cannibals among must be regarded established beyond a doubt. Not very Long ago the tonk.iw�, Wiio have Ever been the deadly enemies of the comanches and the fast friends of Tho texans lived u roving sort of life along the Frontier. The comanches surprised them. Placido their first chief was killed and with him a major 1 Ity of the tribe including the women and children. In consequence the Tonkawa who Lead always been distinguished for their bravely. Ami who within the memory of men not yet old. H id been quite numerous but had for years a been continually losing in their unequal contest with the comanches who a ire the most numerous and powerful of the tribes of the South West were sudd Only reduced to some Lu or 150 souls All told Aud thus were compelled to leave Tho Frontier and come to Austin where they now Are to claim Succour Aud Protection from their White friends. They want rations and clothing for Tho present Aud a a Reserve of land farming implements stocks seeds Aud instruction How to use them for the future. Their first chief Castillo and their second chief Chia Hoke have stated their condition and made their requests. The commander of the a. S military Post Taus i tin. Furnishes them with subsistence. The a legislature of Texas has made a appropriation sufficient to Supply Hein with blankets and clothing. The Tonkawa in their Intercourse with each other speak their own language though most of the warriors speak Spanish and some of them English but their acquaintance with the last mentioned language very imperfect. Chia Hoke the second chief of the Tonkawa and myself have become very Good he Duke stands English quite Well bettor than one would suppose from his Mode of speaking. Quot while going to dinner to Day i saw Chia Hoke waking briskly up Congress Avenue in the direction of the sixth a. S. Cavalry which lies beyond the Capitol. Thinking it a Good Chance of satisfy Ziy curiosity Aud to get a truthful answer to a delicate question by putting it to him when he was off Eis guard i joined my Cannibal Friend who seemed to be in a Good humor being dressed better than usual wearing for the occasion a cavalry hat and being painted with care and after exchanging salutations walked along with him Aud enquired where he was going.

Upon being pressed to give n further and Quot More definite answer he would Only Saya two bits whisky a Maui thereby that lie would give the information sought if he was supplied with Twenty live a tents Worth of whisky. The Noble Savage had become Cie bashed he craved for the a Firu water a that no less than pestilence Aud War had wrought Truiti upon his race. This disgusted me so i took leave of. My Friend Chia Hoke who w ent his Way. I had seen from the expression of his Coli Ute sauce that suspicions were aroused and that the adage Riuo Veritas would not hold Good in his Case.

W. A. Austin Texas november 30 1866. Pacific Ballinny. The completion of the Pacific railway has a ceased to be a dream it a by steady Steps and the end of nest year will witness a surprising forwardness of this Gigantic might to difficult to. Say which was really the greatest undertaking of this Active age were not Tho claims of the Pacific Road of that title out of the reach of Competition. From the Missouri thas already been pushed Forward More than three Hundred Miles now operated while from the Pacific Shore it has progressed one Hundred Miles eastward to to made 15fi Miles by next july running up and Over the Sierra Nevada mountains whose Summit it tunnels at an Elevation of 7000 feet and thence making an easy descent into the great Silver Plains of Nevada. The traffic on that end of this Enterprise the Central Pacific Railroad was at the rate of $1,409,000 in Gold for the three last months of 1876 and the Gross yearly earnings Are s3,000,000, two thirds of which will be net to carry the. Interest accruing on Bonds Anco Complete construction. I 12,000 chinamen have been All Winter at work on that Section of the Road and 10,000 More Are at once to be put of. The Sierra Nevada Range will no longer stand the Barrier Between the Pacific and the Plains. Tho Loco motive engine will by july be hauling freight to the mines and carrying Back the swelling products of their Industry. When this great undertaking of a Railroad across the continent was first proposed Twenty years were assumed the limit of the for completing it but it now demonstrated that Tho work will be finished within live years of the Day when it was undertaken. Government has granted generous Aid so to bring Down the interest charges on the Central Branch with the Aid of California corporations to but Little Over half a million of dollars on a line 156 Miles Long. Rapid Progress will be made on this Section during the approaching summer. The advertisement of Fisk amp Hatch offering the first mortgage Bonds of the Central Pacific on most favourable terms bearing a Gold interest will not escape the attention of investors. No better Security could be offered the traffic of the Road increasing with such rapidity and the interest charges being Only 2i per cent on the outlay. The future of this Road Well assured any Success can be before it wholly realized. It to open an entirely new business future to the Atlantic and Pacific shores and make the population of the United states the most Active and enterprising on the face of the Exchange. Austrian Opl non of the Elliet of the prussian Trca ties. From the Vienna press March �6. Henceforward there will be in Bavaria a civil King Louis ii and a military one William i. The fundamental Laws of that country will be similar to those of Japan where Power divided Between the tycoon Aud the Mikado. And although it not to be presumed that the notables of Bavaria will rip their bowels. Open in Case of a collision among their duties the practice among the japanese there nevertheless a Strong probability that this division will be for them the cause of disagreeable conflicts. The dependent condition of Bavaria will be above All manifested in foreign affairs. Who abroad from this will care Abs our the government of that state when for All the eventualities of. Wiir it has transferred the command to Prussia and has consequently deprived itself of All personal initiative in political questions it a All Over with the Independence of Bavaria far european diplomacy concerned. She has placed herself in the Wake of Prussia and every foreign Power having political questions to discuss with Germany will hereafter address itself exclusively to the Cabinet at Berlin. If Bavaria should henceforth entertain any thought of allowing herself the luxury of representatives at foreign courts these gentlemen will occupy useless posts because the government will not have forgotten but omitted to suppress them. Tho King will be no longer anything More a in Japan Thau the spiritual head of his kingdom. That we May not be accused of injustice let hasten to add that the direction of the theatres Aud musical institutions without however including the band of drummers and lifers in the army will still remain in his hands.
