The election for governor takes pl-ce

Attempt to GetiUp a War.
Special digpatch to The Beo.
WASHINGTON , July 5 1 a. m.
The investigation set on foot by the
department of state to ascertain the
particulars of the firing upon of two
American vessels by the Spanish gun
boat "Nuncio" has brought such mea
gre results as to justify the belief that
the reports , if not wtiblly untrue ,
have been greatly exaggerated , but in
order t < ± satisfy all concerned the sec
retary of State requested the secretary
of the navy to send a vessel of war to
the Weat Indians to 'institute further
inquiries , and to report the result as
speedily as possible.
The secretary of the navy , as pre
viously stated in these dispatches , has
directed the "Tennessee" flagship of
the north Atlantic cquadron , to per
form this service. When the outrages
were first reported here the secretary
of state communicated them to the
Spanish mluiajgr and the latter
promptly' ' questioned the captain-gen
eral of Cuba on the subject and the
latter reported that there was no
such gunboat in the Spanish service
AS the "Nuncio. " A suggestion was
made at the tame time that if the re
ports were correct as to the firing on
American vessels by an armed vessel
whose the "Nun-
name was given as -
clc" < aid vessel was probably in the
employ of the Cuban insurgent gov
ernment , And her acts were intended
to make trouble between the govern
ments of Spain and the United States.
It is believed that the visit of the
"Tennessee" to Cuban waters will
speedily solve all doubts on the ub-
ject. It is the intention of the gov
ernment to act promply ) in caee the
reports prove to be correct.

Politics in a Theatre.
On Saturday night , in the Grafton
Theatre , shortly after the performance
commenced , a male singer came out
and sang a song , the concluding stan
zas of which praised Gladstone and
censured Beaconsfield. When the
song ended , a perfect storm of cheers
and hisses arose from all parts of the
house , and the uproar was indiscriba-
ble. The hisses and cheers seemed to
be about equal in the gallery , but in
the pit all cheered again and again ex
cept one man , a well-dressed , power
fully. . tuJt y ° ung follow , with black
wHisKere 'and mustaches , who hissed
vehemently. A cry was raised to
throw out the "Tory , " and two men
rushed forwaid to do so ; but they
miscalculated the sort of a customer
they had to deal with , for the young
man struck out and sent them both
rolling over , seeing which the rest
hung back , and the performance pro
ceeded ; but not for long , for Lord
Beaconsfield's admirer , emboldened by
vector ? , interruptcd the singer again
and again , and finally wound up by
offering to fight the three best liberals
in the house. His taunts at length
became so gelling that the Gladaton-
ians again rushed at him , headed by a
young man eaid to be a clerk in a gov
ernment office. The "tory , " seeing
the odds against him , retreated to a
corner , where he stood at bay , and , as
his opponents came up , with a single
blow of his 6st he knocked down the
reputed government clerk , and catch
ing the unfortunate man by the collar
and waistband , hurled him at hia
friends , three or four of whom were
knocked down by the novel missile.
The excitcment iu the house was now
intense. Several in the gallery tried
to get down into the pit to join in the
row , while the whole audience stood
on the benches to catch a glimpse of
the desperate struggle that was going
on. The combat was too unequal ,
however , to last lone ; , and in a few
minutes Lord Beaconsfield's unlucky
friendwr.a knocked senseless to the
ground , and was carried out by a few
of his friends who had , however , pru
