TAMPA , FIn . , March 22.-Incomlng passengers -
gers by the latest bet from Havana report
* . that sympathizers , wih thc Cuban rebellion
who were arrested during thc disturbances
have been release by the government from
havana IJrlsons. They wore watched , It : s
believed , and should they bc rearrested they
wi bo conlne at Matanzas. This release
Is believed to clear the prisons of havana
80 that no evidence of rebellion shall bc observed -
served by visitors. I Is stated that the
public of havana has no knowledge of ar-
restel rebels or suspects , because they arc
all connned at : latan1as , forty miles down
' 4t the Island. The 'datanzas prison recently
has been double garrisoned and cannon have
ben drawn Into positon around the prison.
General Sanguily , who was the revolution-
Ist leader In the havana district and who
was arrested and tried by civil court along
with Agulerro , who was arrested with hll ,
Is saId by the latest arrived passengers to
have collected ' 2600 on the Thursday night
preceding his arrest. Ho then told his fellow -
low Insurrectionists to 0 ready for action
on Sunday. On Sunday , February 21 , bow-
over , ho was arrested , and at the instance of
AmerIcan Consul Williams has been ac-
corded n civil trIal In3teall of trial by courtar
martial. I has transpired , according to the
latest information from Havana , that General
Sanguly was not only the apostle of the
revolutionist propaganda for the havana department -
partment , but when tiLe uprising came he
was relied on to lead the forces of insurrecd
ton on the fleid. BeIng a veteran or the
revolution of 1868 the insurrectionists trusted
and revered General Sangtiihiy. Confidence
In him was absolute.
The statement now comes from a passenger
just arrived that the insurrectionists have discovered -
covered that General Sanguly for about
eight years past has been receiving ' 200 per
month from the Spanish government to keep
advlcII of Plots against ; the government by
the Cuban Insurgents. I Is stated that
whll now In prison General Slnguly Is
daly visited by prominent ladles of I1\'anl ;
that he Is banlueted In prison ; that his fam-
fly visit him at wi and that his son sleeps
with him nightly. The Insurrectionists , who
thus are convinced that they were betrayed
by Salglly , claim now to have learned
moro at the funds collected by Sanguilly.
Manuel Garcia , the outlaw under an edict of
Spain , would have had naught to do with
the Insurrectonists and hence desired their
success In the present effort for fredom ,
I Is now stated by a man just arrived
here that the rebels have learned that Garcia ,
son before hIs death early this month ,
offered General Marti , the head of the revo-
luton , the sum of $3.000. General Marti ,
I Issl1 , ] , refused. Garcia sUDseqlenty gave
the money to General Sanguly for the same
purpose. Soon afterwards Garcia was killed ,
and the rebels , It Is asserted , believe that
Slnguly kept or turell over to the Spanish
government this hind other moneys collected
by him. Thc insurrectionists Interested are
no\y dotermIthd that If Sanguly Is released
* his life shall 'po , the forfeit of what they
- , ' , deem to be his treachery to theIr cause.
Bearing upon the above and yet freshly In-
dependent of I there caine here last evening
from Cuba InformaUon that the SpanIsh gov-
erment Intended to send General Sanguly gay.'t .
to the Philippine Islands , ostensIbly as an
exile prIsoner. The Insurrectionists claim I
to have learned , however , that I Is the plan
of the government to send General Slngul
to the Phlppino Islands to lead the go\'ern-
meat forces against the uprising now In
progress there and that he Is to b'e given I
$10,000 for so doing. I Is presumed San
gUly wi be glad to do this to escape the :
pri that wIll surround him should he be ;
_ -Bet free In Havana or any place In Cuha.
What has become of 9.700 rIles that have
been for ' two years past stored In lavanl ? r
That Is'a question that , It Is said Is now
. 4 , puzzling the Spanish govrnunent Two
years ago the agent In 11vanl of a SpanIsh i
arms Ilanufacturing company contracted with )
the Cuban government to supply 10.000 rlfle
A rIval firm , however won over the government -
mont , and when Agent Larranaga , for the
original contractors , delivered his goods they
were refused on the pretext of some defect
and the other firm's goods were accepted
The rejected arms were storNI away , and re -
centy the government bethought Itself to
ascertain tim condition and whereabouts of
the stored arms. The raid on the ( store
house his recently been made public and the
alleged fact that only sevCtynvo guns wero'j
found. The surrounding facts were not given
, - out , and I now trnspires that there were
300 rifles found of the 10,000 I rifles stored I .

therefore , regard It wih greater satisfaction
If the omcers , surgeons , omclals and men of

wounds received In 1870 and 1871 , or In can-
sequence of their Injuries sustained during

ployed l to go to Cuba. I was necessary that
these men should be ciizens of America ,
otherwise their employers had no work for

to and from lie Island , food supplied them and
were to bo paid a salary of $50 per montl
Of these who were hired the ones who appeared -
eared to be entirely trustworthy and Ilely
to keep the
secret were told the real nature
of the expeditton. The plan was changed , It
w as saId , and It
WIS was arranged to send the
men to Cuba on n steamer of the regular Ine
running to Colon Instead of the chartered L
steamer. The latter was then to be loaded LL L
wIth munitions of war . and. If possible , the
cargo was to be landed on the east end of
Cuba at flue scene of the present disturbance

CanadIan boundary commission of last year ,
England lays claim to large and valuable
portons of Alaska , both In the Interior mind on
the sea board , which had previously been
reglrdet as American territory. I Is' also
true that both of the commissions of survey
came to nearly the same conclusIon regarding
the questions whIch they had been appointed
to settle . There were , however , divergencies
between them regardhlb certaIn maters
which can not b overlooked Time funda.F

Since the completion of time survey It Is the

who Is In New York. The session Is saId to
hlve been uneventful , and there Is said to
have been an entire absence of friction be-
tween time members , although the principal
subjects under discussion relating to the
various complications In which we have beh
come Involved with certain foreign countries
were well calculated to exhibit "iverslned
Immdividual views. I Is presumed that ( the
attitude of Great Britain ' toward Venezuela
and Nicaragua was canvassed , but as far as I
can bd gathered the secretary of state had :
no now mater touchIng this to Impart , and
It was not believed to , bo necessary to take '
any positive acton on the matter at this I
juncture In the proceedings.

misleading ammil did not convey proper information -

name they could incorporate.
DavIes said ( list it was true , mind lie be-
hieved it would hue admittemi Imy time gentleman -
man from Saline , that time bank comnjueeth of
ixmdivlmluals was safer than an incorporated
