Transcript 28 to administer their island, as we have to govern and administer our provinces and local interests. Against tyranny there is always the right of rebellion, and we who, for fifty years, were always rising against despotism, cannot deny the right of rising to those whom we ourselves oppress. Instead of sending 12,000 men to settle the Cuban question, the Republican party would settle it by federation, giving the Cubans the liberty we had ourselves; for if the insurrectionists cry ' Death to Spain!' it is because Spain means to them oppression, tyranny, and plunder." On the 28th October, Senor Payela said—"The Minister of War, replying to Senor Nouvilas, said the other day, 'We want soldiers, and we want them because we have sent to Cuba alreadv 76,000 since the revolu- tion began ;' and I have now to ask the Minister of War whether, having already sent 76,000 there, and the Cuban affair not being nearly at an end yet, he thinks that he is going to finish the war by sending still more soldiers ? I think not; and although, as I do not wish to raise a storm in the House, and will not spealc about the Havana volunteers, I only have to say to his lordship that, since he now asks for a conscription of 40,000 men, because he thinks the war is coming to a finish, he will have to ask for a great many more when it really comes to an end, for he will then have to deal with an insurrection a great deal more to be feared than the present one—namely, the insurrection of the volunteers themselves. The Government is asking us for soldiers to send to Cuba, as if it really commanded in the island. I can tell you, gentlemen, that the power that commands in Cuba now are the volunteers of Havana; and they command there because, for some reason which I do not know, they fear for their lives and fortunes, and they believe it better to think and act for themselves in the matter of Cuba. The patriotism of the volunteers only means looking after their own interests. The 76,000 men you have already sent have not sufficed to finish the war; nor will the 12,000, 14,000, or even 20,000 more you may send, because the insurrectionists are much more important than you think, and the volunteers are of more importance still. The proof of this is, that we send them generals, and they send them back to us again. The volunteers of Cuba- hold councils of war of their own accord." ..... Cn the 29th October, 1872, Senor Cintron said—" I have the honour to present a petition from some inhabitants of LaPuebla delos Infantes, praying for the abolition of slavery in the Antilles, and I have to call the attention of the House to the repeated petitions which are beino- presented to this effect, which prove it to be a question of national honour that ought to receive the consideration of Congress.
