Transcript •4 these infamous assassins, who, with arms in their hands, subjected a Council of War to their will, surrounding ib like hungry wolves, and clamouring for the heads of these poor victims ? I ask, I repeat, whether measures have been taken to punish them as they deserve ? Above all, I wish to see produced a statement of the losses sustained by these celebrated volunteers, and the services they have rendered. The Minister of War—Senor Diaz Quintero wishes to have exact information respecting the losses sustained by the army in Cuba, and also those suffered by the Volunteers who have gone thither from Spain. I have no objection to lay on the table all the information possessed by the Government on the point, but the statement is not so exact as could be desired. A war like this, presenting so many difficulties, both in the matter of communication and administration, makes me really unable to say exactly what the losses of the army have been. Senor Diaz Quintero also asks what have been the losses of the Volunteers of Havana. I can assure his lordship at once that they havej)een many and very considerable, and [ much regret that his lordship should be ignorant of them. Senor Diaz Quintero—I have to rectify an error into which the Minister of War has fallen in saying that I am ignorant of much that is going on in Cuba. I, unfortunately, know only too well what occurrences are taking place there. I am aware that the Volunteers belonging to towns out of Havana have rendered valuable services and made great sacrifices; but what T want to know is, what the Volunteers of Havana have done, those Volunteers whose patriotism is always being dinned into our ears, whose patriotism, indeed, is for ever in their mouths; what have they done? I wish to know how many have fallen in the war, how many have gone out to fight the rebels, of those who murdered the defenceless people in the Louvre, of those who kicked out our Captam-General Dulce; those are the men I wish to hear about. Are these the Volunteers whom our Minister of War defends ? Because if they be, I want to know how many of those murderers of the Louvre, how many of those who, like famished beasts, howled for blood round the Council, of War ; how many of those who turned out our Captain- General have gone to shed their blood for the cause of Spain. I can say no more at this moment, as the rules of the House will not allow me to do so; but the time will come wrhen we can treat this question amply, and then we shall know what is happening in Cuba. On the 14th of October, Senor Diaz Quintero said—The Senate has heard the reading by one of its Secretary of a communication from the Minister of War respecting the losses suffered by our standing army in the Cuban campaign, but I also requested a statement respecting the losses sustained by the Volunteers of the colony. It is true we are told of certain services rendered by the Volunteers, not the Volunteers of Havana, but by those up the country ; but what I want
