Sensationalism. Mayor! Neff. The
Star, " and another paper," in bursting out
into an ebullition of )4 Cuban" patriotism,
on account of the government seizing, and
dispossessing the Cuba, only manifest their
ignorance of the duties of an official. "A
true soldier never disobeys," said General
Scott. Our U. S. Marshal was ordered to
execute an unpleasant duty.! He done it,
but as we know, in extreme reluctance.
Marshal Neff has been exceedingly un
fortunate ot late in

fretful and annoying
burdens instead of adding unceremoniously
and unthougbtfolly to the bitter burden.

James Henry, who accidentally fell from the

day from the above named hotel. The
impressive obsequies ; the stout hearted sto
ical sailors, bent and weeping under the
saddening preseuc8of their comrade cold in
death ; the brave and gallant officers gather
ed around the coffin, the slowly solemn
ritual, and the immense assemblage of spec

of sympathy, of reverence, and of mel
ancholy, that words would fail to convey.
But a few hours ago, and in the inevita-
ble hilarious spirit of the uninaprisoned sail-

Yesterday, the smile of contentment, ot joy

from his brow like mist before the -mornlns

sweet in their rigidness and lifelessness as if

erous, openhearted, independent and conse

their noble efforts in behalf of the deceased.

. CCEA. A COMPOSITION BY LITTLE JACK
Plaxi:. Cuba an island, shaped just
like a llzzard and is now in a great tumult.
When you look bn the map it seems only a
little vyg off, but it is many miles. If the
Floridsjcontractpra would hurry up their
coral fob, we might have a good drive
across to Cuba, but they are so slow I don't
believe Jt will be done for along time.
Cuba tas been owned y Spain for ever so
long, but she has got tired of it, and wants
to get Jhe job fited; Cuba is noted for its
sugar, and moTaWes," and cigars, and scorpi
ons and handsome women. The last article
is the best, for they are sweeter than suirar
or molasses, more fragrant than cigars,
smarter than scorpions, and as charming as
only Cuban ladies can be except that we
have got sweeter, more fragrant and smart
er ladies here. Everybody likes Cuba. The
United State? ha3 wanted Cuba ever so
long but hasn't got it yet. Spain wants to
keep Cuba, but I horc she can't do it. I
want to see the Star Spangled Banner long
may it wave saijing pver Cuba and the lib
erties of her people forever assured by the
best government the world ever saw.
Some people thiuk that the .beautiful
tcamer now in this harbor is all the Cuba
there is, but it is a mistake. Oar Cuba is
a pretty iron vessel that wants to go and
help get the island free from the tyranical
yoke of a cruel despotism. She has strong
men, powerful gubs and handsome officers.
I want her to go out on the high seas, and
sweep the Spanish vessels from its broad
bosom and force proud Spain to loose its
iron heel from the beautiful Cuban neck !
But she can't go. Mister Grant- ain't he a
big man ? says she must stay here in order
to advertise our beautiful city. We sub
mit, but don't like it. Poor Cuba. The

The Case of the Steamer " Cuba "
How to get out oV a Knot Hole
Ex-Confederate Attorney General Geo.
Davis as TnE " Jim Crow " of the Bar.
On Monday morning last, Mr. Geo. Davis,
Ex-Confederate Attorney General and the
present counsel for the officers Of the
" Cuba," took occasion while reviewing the
status of the above named vessel, to con
demn in the most unwarranted and Un
measured terms, " at certain powor.r r..t
iu uuiiiMij ' ii uim puuiisueu. ui sre
marks " on the opening of the case " on the
5 th of October. As the Post was the only
journal in this city that did publish the full
proceedings in the initiatory arraignment of
the officers, and as this ex-rebel delighteth
unspeakably in ariy opportunity to attack
the only organ of the Republican party in
this city, why we j
"Draw the flattering Unction to
1 V lAk DVUlj
and proceed to
exhibit this corn-led to the
admiring gaze of
his benighted followers.
In the first place, we unhesitatingly "dis
claim any intention to injure the pending
case of the gentlemanly officers ot the
steamer " Cuba ;" 'twas their misfortune in
an embarrassing moment, nay, one of im
minent peril, to engage the services of this
man; for this they have bur unchallenged
pity aud deepest - egret. But to Davis. On
consultation no doubt with Mr. Lowery, this
man Davis became convinced that the cause
of the "Cuba " in Washington was eminent
ly jeopardized by the appearance of him
self a3 senior counsel in the case. Now
mark ! The Cuban officers were ar
raigned on the allegation of the Collector
on the 5th of October, our report of
the proceedings together with the speeches
therein appeared on the 7th of October;
Mr. Davis has had from the 7th of October
to the present time to correct any misappre
hensions, misstatements, or inaccuracies.
Why did he not I His silence is sufficient
evidence against him.
Secondly. Mr. G. P. Lowrey, of New York,
on his return home, finds that our report Of
the proceedings , being universally accepted
as graphic and truthful, we presume, was
prevailed upon by this "unrepentant" to de
ny the words that he (Davis) uttered, but
the reader will perceive how Mr. Lowrey
did do it, from the following which we clip
from the New 1 ork Timet :
THE CASE OF THE HORNET, OR CUBA MB.
DAVIS' REMARKS IN COURT AT WILMING
To the Editor of the flew York limes :
I have seen in some of the New York
daily papers allusions to a reported speech
ot George Davis, Esq., of Wilmington, made
in the proceedings relating to the steamship
" Cuba " on Monday last, and from the char
acter of these allusions I judee that the
press has been imposed upon by a false re
port. Having been ipretent in Court, lam
able to say that t?i4 only question discussed
was whether the hearing should be adjourned
on theapplication of the Goternment. In
respect to this, Mr. Davis said all that was
proper or uselul to be said, but certainly
nothing that was not in the best taste and
Judgment. I hate not been, able to see the re
port of his remarks, but I am sure that any
report which attributes to him other lan
guage than might be expected from an able
lawyer and an accomplished gentleman is
erroneous. I will take the liberty ot add
ing that although some of the papers are
with apparent seriousness, . discussing the
question whether the "Cuba" will not be
convicted of piracy, the speculation is some-,
what oremature. for no such charge has
been made against her. She is held tor an
alleged breach of the neutrality act, and for
TOPSSSS P. Lowbkv.
No. 78 Broadway, N. Y., Oct. 14, 1860.
Now we will leave it to any 1 of the peri
sons assembled in the Court Room : on the
first day of the investigation, whether , Mri
Lowery was present or not. But, as th$
reader will perceive, Mr. Lowerey is amusl
ingly confounded. He essays to speak on
behalf of Mr. Davis, while in New York, i
contravention of one who was present.
have not been able to see the report of his
remarks" says Mr. Lowery. Then what in
the name of common sense is he talking
about? For he was not there on the first
day, and it is of the first day that the issue
has arisen, and not of the Monday specified
in Mr; Lowrey's letter to the Times. Oh f
consistency, thou art'indeed a jewel. i
Thirdly. Mr. Davis' absentmindedness is
indeed remarkable, not to be overharsh
Heaven has not granted him judgment!
sufficient ia its government, to control hisl
passions. Does the gentleman not know
that out of sympathy to the cause of the
Cuban officers, we refrained from printing
the bitterest portions ot his address ? Does
he not remember that when the counsel for
the government used the word " rebel," that
this great " unpunished" remarked that he!
expressed a sympathy for the word, thereby!
intimating that he still heartily espoused
the cause of the South, and in a U. fi. Court
Room audaciously confronted a U. S. Com-f
missioner with his vile insinuation. And
this from one ot the members of "Jeff.'
Davis' Cabinet, who to-day only breathes!
through the clemency and toleration of
magnanimous government. Faugh !
Fourthly. That in order to bear addi-
tional testimony to Mr. Davis1 remarks, wef
have exhibited our copy of the address,!
and have consulted those who have alreadyi
carefully read the speech, and with one sin-
gleexception, (and that gentleman's bump off
firmness is by no means "magnificently greaf f
or proverbiallv stronsr.") all have stated un4
m til -J -
reservedly and unsolicited that the strong-!
est and most prejudicial portions of the!
address have been omitted, and if anything,
it is an unadulterated and unexaggerated
report of this " relic of the rebellious"!
In justice to ourselves we are compelled.
to meet the reflections of Mr. Davis, in!
detriment momentarily to the cause of Cubanl
independence. We sincerely regret it. In!
the meantime " Georgie" is respectfully re
quested by the assistant etl

Life of TnE Period. We hear old peo
ple lamenting over the degeneracy of the
times, and are apt to take fortho captious-
ness of ago what has too much truth in it.
Our fathers tell us that they lived on bread
and milk till they were half grown men ;
and their appetites were never pampered by
delicacies ; and that when seatedwhich
was seldom in the
presence of superiors it
was not on stuffed
chairs but hard 6tools
without backs. Schools for artificial exer
cise were then unknown : gymnasiums 'were
the free woods, where the boys in undrilled
sport gained muscular vigor without the
fear of spoiling fine broadcloth nature their
only teacher and robust health the law ot
the privileged hours.
Their limb3 were nofwound up in flannel
for winter preservation their feet encased
in rubbers, or their free movements crippled
by overcoats. In the face of north-easters
and snow storms the hardy fellows buffeted
their way, sometimes for miles, to the gen
eral school-house, with a cold sausage and
brown crust for the noon-spell dinner. The
consequence of all this was the warm blood
had free course, imparting life and vigor to
every limb; dyspepsia, debility and the like
were seldom heard of, and the effects of the
vigorous training are still visible in the stal
wart old frames that are outliving in health
and cheerfulness their "three score and ten."
On the dinner table of an opulent mer
chant which is usually supplied with at
least two dishes of meat, there happened the
other day to be but one, and that a substan
tial round of beef. I observed marks ot
dissatisfaction in some ot the children's
faces, and the eldest daughter declined eat
ing any thing, being indisposed, which the
fond mother well enough understood.
"Will you have a chicken broiled, my
The dainty girl languidly acceded, and
injustice to her I must say that she did
iustice to the delicate dish that was soon
smoking before her.
No wonder the old maids and bachelors
multiply. Young men, dependent upon
their own exertions, can scarcely afford to
marry the spoiled daughters of this extrava
gant day. And such as have ample means,
where are they to find wives in the so-called
educated circles, that knowj anything more
than to prate French, waltz like humming
