Adjutant- General Corbln received a dispatch to day announcing that the Eighth cavalry sailed this morning from Savannah for Puerto Principe, Cuba. The roglmont will be the American garrison at Puer to Prlnclpo and Nuovitas. In this connection an Interesting bit of information haa reached the war de partment. Arrangements have beon made by the Spanish authorities to send back to Spain tlio Spanish troops, numbering 0,500 men, upon the arrival of the American garrison. It waa ex pected they would anil Wednesday or Thursday, but an unexpected obatnele haa arisen among the men thomaelvea, They are on tbe verge of mutiny, open' ly declaring they will not roturn to Spain until they have received tholr pay, now far In arrears, for service in Siba. The mutiny extends not only to e enlisted men but to their officers, and is directed against the executive officials of the government on tha Island. Some of tbe men have not beou paid for nearly a year, and to all of them several months of pay is due. The situation has created no particu lar concern in the minds of the Amer ican authorities, aa it la not llkoly seriously to affect the control of that portion of tbe island by the American forces; but It Is realized that these 0,600 soldiers, If they should persist la tholi rofusal to return to Spain, might becomo dependents whom It would be difficult to care for, and ultimately, perhaps, a menace to good government In the Island, The Spanish authorities exprcsa no fear of tholr ability to solve tbe problem presented, but how they will solve It if the men, backed by their officers, absolutely refuso to return borne without their pay ia not clear.

Canyon City was at that time the liveliest town in Eastern Orogon, made so by the mining excltoraent that prevailed as a result of the gold discovered in Canyon orcek. The population of the I town was much greater then than it has since been, and the number of bus iness bonnes was largor.
