TELEGRAPHIC From Irish Immigrants for Manitoba, WHOLESALE SUPERANNUATION. The Rev, Mr. O'ltoa and his Mission, OTTAWA, July. 7.. representative of the Irish Agricultural Laborers, left for Manito- ba this morning to make enquiries into the desirability Rev. Mr. O'Meara of Winnipeg is here collecting for a new .Episcopal Church. One hundred and eighteen of the civil service are to be superamia- ted next fall. r Bleedinfr York, June American brig Sowers, Captain Martin, lias arriv- ed from Cienfeugos, with seventeen refu- gees from the draft. In the night pre- vious to'the sailing, ste was boarded by an officer, who overhauled the manifest of the vessel and searched for. stowaways, wviihoufc finding any. An hour or two later two boats from different quarters with passengers drew up alongside. A Spanish gentleman who came aboard told fi distressing tale of suffering, which so worked upon the feelings of Captain Martin that he consented to the.-_.Spani- ard and his fellow sufferers as passen- gers. The captain did likewise with the other boat load, and left Cienfuegos. (Captain Martin reports that the inhabi- tants are in great terror, .owing. to: tfae relentless manner in which the conscrip- tion is carried out. Persons of all ages and conditions are forced into.ihe army, and those too feeble to shoulder a mus- ket are placed in the-chain-gang. 'He frequently saw old men and boys not over thirteen years of age chained to ne- groes and working in the ..street. ..-A. Spanish officer was standing over them, in hand, ready to apply the lash unmercifully upon the least direliction of duty. Even the Spanish residents, of the city, became disgusted, with, the in- humanity of their .own 'race, arid were disposing of their goods and fast as to escape from the'.island. He knew of a vessel that left Cienfuegos the week previous to his car- rying twenty refugees. .'..All :persons suBpected of sympathizing with the-pa- triots were drafted into the arnay with- out law, and of'course' without redressl The whole country for several leagues was one vast waste, many of the sugar plantations having been burnt by the insurgents. There were two thousand volunteers and regulars in the city. The commander was afraid to venture out-- side the stockade to fight the handful of Cuban's and put an end to the work of destruction, The Spanish officers ap- pear disheartened, and dread proach' of the sickly near at: hand, which brings with-it the dreaded black vomit. :v Threatened Kuptitrei June relations: be- tweea Turkey and Persia are not friend- ly. It appears that the Persian Govern- ment has refused to compel return to Turkish territory of'a tribe number- icg families which has been sub- ject to the Pprte, but esCiiiped-jaerpss the Persian frontier, and that a number :of; Turks have been seized and; maltreated by a band 'of Persian sia pbrsoirs its sabjecrts, ancLto ing- speedily relations of the two countries will become critical.
