Transcript o The enlightened press of this country was first to tear asunder the veil which hid from the eyes of Europe the truth respecting the events which were occurring in Cuba, and the reports furnished to the English Government by its agents in that country subsequently confirmed what the press had published on the subject. But as if the undeniable truths revealed by these competent authorities were not enough to convince the world, the powerful and authoritative words of illustrious Spaniards wdiom no one can doubt, come to us to prove their correctness in a manner which must leave all uncertainty out of the question. The words we place before our readers in the important pages of the present pamphlet are those of Spaniards eminent in the councils of their country—distinguished orators of both parliamentary chambers ; men conspicuous from their position, their w7isdom and their independence ; uninfluenced by any personal bias or compromise in colonial affairs, and solely guided by their love for truth and their zeal for the fair fame and houour of their country. On perusing these inspired bursts of eloquence, wisdom, and patriotism with which the Spanish Parliament has just rung, the English reader cannot fail to remember with pride the imperishable glory which must ever cover the names of Chatham, Burke, and other celebrated orators of the British Parliament who, in the latter part of the last century7, raised their powerful voices in a smilar manner in defence the rights of the North American Colonies. At the same time it will be seen how trifling and apparently insufficient seem the causes which induced the North American colonists to sever the bond which held them to their mother country, if we compare them with those that at last have forced the Cubans into the arduous and heroic struggle which they are sustaining against the implacable tyranny of their hard step-mother Spain. The writer refrains from adding a single word of his own to remind his readers of the number and magnitude of these causes. He prefers to leave the pages of this pamphlet to speak for themselves, but he cannot avoid calling attention to a singular fact, unique in the history of slave-holding colonies, which is presented
