Transcript ]9 / the negroes are so considered, I should almost imagine not, seeing the barbarous treatment they are subjected to) during the rule of a Democratic Government—a Government that recognises the unconditional and inalienable character of right, liberty of the subject is subordinated to enable us civilized men, who deserve to be called savages, to obtain our comforts and our luxuries in exchange for the blood and tears of poor negroes, who have no rights at all. Can there be said to be a spark of liberalism in a Government which allows a single slave to rest in Cuba? ••••••••• Speaking of the abandonment by Spain of the Island of Penon de la Gomera, Senor Galdo said, in the Spanish Senate on the 24th October, 1872—" Does not the war we are carrying on in Cuba cost Spain untold treasures?
