Transcript 20 since the preparatory Act of 1870 has never been carried out, and the- regulations recently published in the Gazette are gravely imperfect and defective. I congratulate myself, and the Cortes will doubtless do likewise, that Spanish citizens should have agreed that their first duty on the opening of the Cortes, which inspires them with hopes of success, was to present a petition demanding the abolition of slavery, and so to rid the country of so ignominious an institution, so terrible a curse against the present and future generations." • ••• ••••• The Minister of War (General Cordova), replying on the 4th October to a question of Gen.Nouvilas,respectingtherecentcivilwarinCatalonia, said—" This 'phenomenon is the same as that wrhich occurs in our war in Cuba, where 60,000 troops cannot overcome, in twenty-four hours, factions of three or four thousand bandits, who shelter themselves in the morasses. This phenomenon is the phenomenon which presented itself in San Domingo, where a brave and veteran army, commanded by famous and experienced Generals, who in a single day could have finished the whole Dominican population, could not struggle against the difficulties of the ground, against an inimical public opinion, and against a variety of other obstacles of lilce nature. This phenomenon is the phenomenon observed in all civil wrars—the same phenomenon which happened in Spain in the years 1820-23 and 1847-49." • ••••«•• • On the 5th October, 1872, Senor Orense said—"The undersigned have the honour to propose to the Congress that the ninth clause of the King's Speech should be conceived in the following terms:— 1 In Porto Rico, where peace has not been disturbed, and where the full enjoyment of political rights will certainly not tend to its disturbance, the Congress doubts not, and hopes that the promises made at the time of the revolution, will soon be carried out." There is, however, a question which admits of no reserve nor procrastination whatever. Slavery is in every way incompatible, not only with the interests of the revolution, but also with the honour of Spain; and, in addition to this, we must consider the really praiseworthy attitude of the inhabitants of Porto Rico, who, anticipating the work of legislation, have spontaneously commenced to emancipate their slaves, and the very grave situation of Cuba, where the maintenance of servitude may change the war, which has hitherto been a political and civil struggle into a disastrous social war. It is most urgent, then, that we should abolish slavery at one blow, adopting at the same time the necessary measures for the preservation of order and the protection of respectable vested interests.' Signed in the Palace of the Congress, 5th October, 1872, by J. M. de. Orense, Emilio Castelar, Rafael Marin de Labra, Marques de Sardoal, Vincente Nunez de Velasco, Jose Fernandaz Gonzales, Luis Vidart."
