Transcript SENATE. In the Spanish Senate on the 7th October, Senor Diaz Quintero said,—I wish to ask his lordship (the Colonial Minister) whether it be true that the defalcations of the military administration of the island of Cuba amount to several millions of dollars. I have been informed that these defalcations are very considerable and reach many millions in amount, and, as I presume, the reports respecting them are in the hands of the Supreme Council of War, I desire to know what measures his lordship has adopted to correct these abuses, which, I repeat, date from a period anterior to the administration of his lordship. I have now to address another question to the Colonial Minister, but, before doing so, I wish to thank his lordship for his promptitude in producing the data which I requested respecting the census of slaves, but, unfortunately, he has only sent those relative to Porto Rico, whereas I requested also those referring to the island of Cuba. Cuban affairs appear so involved in obscurity that not even in the Colonial-office itself does any certain knowledge of them exist, and no clear and concise information can be obtained. I much regret that we have not been furnished with the slave census for Cuba, as also with the data relative to the sequestrations, but, since we may infer from appearances that it is impossible to supply them, I do not press the matter further, and confine myself to asking whether the Minister can in any way place before the House data which may enable us to examine and discuss, with the due knowledge, the colonial questions arising from the discussion of the reply to the speech from the Throne ? The Minister of War We have a War in Cuba, unfortunately a most protracted one, which has 'produced great difficulties in the management of the financial interests of the island, one of these difficulties being that concerning the military administration, but the Government has absolutely no knowledge whatever, and I can hardly believe that any one else can have, of the military administration being in a state of defalcation. That which happens at present with the military administration, is consequent on the dissemination of troops over the vast field of operations, as well as by reason of the difficulties arising from the distance even between the different columns and the bead-quarters of the administration, that which is now happening, I say, in Cuba, is the self same thing which occurred'with the military administration in San Domingo ; the same again which took place in the African War, and during the long period over which the dynastic war extended in Spain. When wars are irregular, and prolonged like these
