Aug. 31.—The English po lice have ascertained that the Barce lona swlnd crs, who for years past have been running what is known ns thej "Spanish prisoner” trick, have during the past six weeks victimized credu lous Englishman lo the amount of $50,000. This Is owing to the fact that the swincjlcrs gave the air of truth to an old fdor by setting forth that this nar t'cular prisoner had burled a vast amount of gold In Santiago to escape the rapacity of the cruel Y/nkees. Money was asked to enable him to re turn to Cuba and unearth the treasure, new that peace was restored. 0 1 efforts of the British police In years past to Induce the Spanish au thorities to help break up this Impu dent gang of swindlers have been fruit less. There is little doubt that the rogues owe immunity to the fact that they share their spoils with the local police. THE VESUVIUS. I The Dynamiter Arrived fn Boston Today. Boston. Aug. 31.
