Transcript 25 the Conservatives, who arrogate to themselves the title of " Spanish Party" in colonial questions, said—" Spanish party ! I do not and never will call a ■ Spanish party' that party which upholds slavery and defends the dictatorship of the volunteers, that party which protects only the interests of a group of planters and preserves the discretionary power of the Captain-Generals. Here and elsewhere 1 will call a " Spanish party' only that one which represents the integrity of this beautiful, liberal Spain of ours, the noblest flowers of whose splendid garland are liberty of labour, freedom of thought, liberty of conscience, and all the privileges of free citizens. Spaniards! And why should not we Radicals be Spaniards ? By what right do you arrogate to yourselves that name ? Bring out these proofs which you have talked about so long—that a conspiracy exists in Spain in favour of the filibuster cause. Let us see these proofs, for until you produce them I have the right to give you a rough answer, which I will not do now, but shall, to my regret, have yet some day to cast back into your teeth. Spaniards! Yes, we are Spaniards to a pitch of enthusiasm, nay, fanaticism; but, nevertheless, we do not, like some Conservatives, spend our time childishly in bandying accusations of want of patriotism in the corner of a club ; nor are we of those who make vain, puerile, and even ridiculous boasts of a patriotism which I will have the good nature not to qualify, because, in my opinion, true patriotism is not a thing to be clamoured and shrieked about, but to be practised; and, gentlemen, because we, free citizens of a free country, practise it, because we wish integrity of right to be perforce a consequence of integrity of territory, wo therefore love our country, feel an interest in it, are animated by it, and duly represented in it; and I must confess, gentlemen, that every time I meet a foreigner face to face, who cruelly reminds me that I belong to a country which still has bondsmen and allows slavery, my face blushes with shame, and I would fain have in my hands, in these poor weak hands, strength enough to crush at a blow, at one great blow, that three-tailed standard which }*ou Conservatives have been •obliged to withdraw from the Peninsula, but want still to brandish in ■our colonies—to crush, I say, at one stroke, those shameful chains of slavery which so .affront us. (Applause.) Not another word, gentlemen. If you love justice, if you love truth, if you want to act for thereat honour of Spain, I pray you to do justice to our colonial brothers. (Applause.) On the 15th October, Senor Salmeron said, in reply to the Premier's answer to his former speech (see page 21):—" Do not think that I come here to excite any personal passion or enmity whatever. No; I only affirm and reaffirm, once, and a hundred thousand times, the truth of what I said the other day respecting Cuba. I have said it, and I think nobody will have the boldness to contradict it. But I must add some- •thing more. I must say to the Prime Minister, and I regret that the
