The steamer Saginaw arrived today from Hayti, and it is learned that th iicajner Ilajtien Itepuhlic was still in the harhor of Port-au-Prinee when the Saginaw sailed. Passengera by the Saginaw state that on the morning of the 5th five of Legitime's men-of-wai-, the Dossal incs. Belize, Tous saint, IO vert ure and one other, bom banled Cape Hayti. The foreign consuls in the city, before the beginning of the bombardment, sent out a petition to the commander of the tiet asking time to fret out of the city. They were given thirty-six hours to evacuate the town, The people fled into the hills, taking all the possessions they could conveniently carry, the supply of pack mules being limited to fifty or sixty. The animals were in great demand, and fabulous prices were paid to convey a tingle mule load to places of safety. Shortly after daybreak on the second day after the arrival of the fleet the Hay tien officers trained tluir guns on the town and the bombardment commenced. In a few minutes the shot began to tear through the town, demoralizing the frail structures. The bampoo huts succumbed tfcsily, but the stone buildings in the central and more elevated portion of the town were not bo easily destroyed, the heavy walls resisting the fire for several hours. Despite the warning tiiey had re ceived to leave tho fated town, many residents clung to their habitations, Jn fact, it was impossible to remove the sick in the city within the time allowed. On ! the top of all of the houses in which sick persons were known to be white flags were placed, but shot and shell were no respectors of the appealing emblems. None of the people who arrived today could estimate with any degree of accu raey the number of killed, but it was thought that fifteen or twenty at least succomed to the fire. Legitime is by de grees losing the confidence of the people, and most all the sympathy is with the north. The agents in New York of the steam ship Haytien republic are much surprised at the report that their vessel will sail from Hayti in charge of an American crew which sailed from here last week on the Atlas line ship Galena, to be delivered at an American port subject to the dis posal of this government, Mr. Austin, one of the agents, says: "I don't see why Hayti or the Atlas people gain by this, an-l I doubt very much whether they can bring the Haytien Republic up here. She has no stores, no fuel, nor anything dse on board, and must be in a bad condition." The steamer Haytien Republic will leave Port-au-Prince tomorrow morning flying the American flag, manned by an American crew and bound for New York. Chas. W. Brooks, council for the Atlas Steamship company, said: "The crew which was at Hayti to accomplish tfiis result was forwarded with the full knowledge, consent and connivance of Minister Preston and General Contreras nor has there been any unnecessary con cealment in this matter so far as my clients are conserned. And had the United States naval authorities been pos sessed of a full acquaintance with the maratime laws conserning the shipment of crews to foreigh ports, they would not have found it necessary to drag the Galena out of the mud."

Stop in at Warrick's and see the largest and cheapest stock of holiday goods in the city. He has nearly double the stor k he has oyer carried before and prices are lower. Don't spend a dollar until you see hi? display, diw It matters very little what the demo crats may do in regar 1 to admitting new states. The republicans will pooh be in power and absolute control of the subject and will admit every t-rritory that has a right to become a state which can give assurance thst it will help to re-elect Jlarpspn and Morton. j The leading bankers of New York who haye been interviewed on the ques tion say they do not believe that the bursting of the Panama Canal bubble will affect business in the United States. It will undoubtedly be felt in most of the financial centers of Europe, however, although, as it has been expected for the past year or more, the effect will be far less severe than if it were to come un heralded. The principal sufferer, of course, will be France, as nearly all the money sunk in the scheme has been fur nished by that country. Globe Dem. Ladies!
