Transcript 27 employ in certain mercantile transaction, and particularly in relation to the Custom House, certain contracts, and fiscal affairs. They oppose a constitution which would give natives of the island a share in its government, because it would take out of their hands many lucrative places, governorships of towns, &c, in which by certain reprehensible means it is easy to make large fortunes." Gentlemen, need I read any more ? This is said by the Imparcial, the proprietor of which is present Colonial Minister, who, if I remember aright, was its editor at the time this appeared. Judge now, gentlemen, whether I have been hard in treating of the Cuban volunteers. I make no com- ments ; I need not say a single wrord more on the subject, and if perchance it shall have left a disagreeable impression on the house, I trust it may afford an opportunity for the love of justice, and of right, to strike deep its roots in the Spanish heart, and choke those considerations which are mean when they are not vile, thus allowing this question to be promptly resolved in accordance with the demands which justice and dignity make on a civilized nation." .... ...*• In the Congress on the 22d Oct., 1872, Senor Salmeron presented a petition from the electors of Lorca praying for the immediate abolition of slavery; and, in supporting it, Senor Cisa, in an eloquent speech, said—"The island can only be pacified by declaring it a Spanish province, giving it the same laws as rule here, and sending thither, as officials, honest men who will not plunder the country ; which has hitherto been the cause of all the complaints and calamity." On the 27th October, 1872, Senor Garrido said—" You say you want 12,000 more men to crush the Cuban insurrection ; buc this insurrection has already existed four years, and now you come and tell us that you want twelve thousand men to subdue it, besides the 50,000 or more that you have sent already ! Ah! what you must do with Cuba is not to send 12,000 more men from Spain, but send back from Cuba hither the 12,0C0 vultures w7hich are devouring it; what you must do with Cuba is to send her liberty, and a great deal of it, because liberty attracts, mollifies, and renders thankful its recipient. Let, then, liberty be sent thither, and allow the Cubans to govern themselves, like the rest of the Spanish provinces. I ca"n tell you that the question of Cuba is for you an insoluble one; you may send your 12,000 men there, as you have sent many times twelve thousand already during the last four years, but you will not settle the question for all that. You cry out that you must preserve the territorialintegrity, and it appears that there is a tendency to believe that we, on our side of the House, do not wish to do so ; but that is a mistake ; we wish for it as much as you, and we wish for national unity, but we also wish for liberty, for without liberty there can be no real fatherland, and the Cubans have the same right
