Treatment of United States citizens in
Cuba?What may yet bo the Result.*?
The Washington correspondent ("Independent")
of the North American, referring
to the fact that tho President has
promptly fulfilled every obligation under
. v the laws, in suppressing the lute expedi.'.?P
tion to Cuba, intimates that there are
| other and even higher duties in regard to
I the treatment ot our citizens residing
there, which he may have yet to perform,
and which he will not shrink from, be the
consequences what they may. lie fays:
"The spirit evinced in tho reply to the
application of the commrndar of the 1
steamer Ohio for a better anchorage,
when recently at Havana, exhibits neither
a friendly nor a discreet inclina,!">:\
and tho system of military imprison.
winch was threatened against all forci.M
H ers, is not precisely the mode of volunteering
which would Ik: most agroeable to
American residents. If the Captain
f General of Cuba, misled by mistaken
zeal, should attempt, under the mere in
fluencc of suspicion or false report, to
\ isit his wrath on any citizen of 'he ITniS
ted States who was following a lawful
pursuit, aiul~ who was not engaged in the
g revolutionary movement., there is nopowin
this government which can prevent the
loso of Culm lo Spain, even if (here was
every disposition on the part of the public
authorities lo exert its military force
for such n purpose."
OunRelations with Poiituoal.?The
lonowmg letter h from tins correspondence
of the New York Herald.
Likuok, Apiil29, 1850
You may look for very stringent communications
from your President to Conpress,
in relation lo clnims made by the
United States on Portugal, embracing the
case of tb? "General Armstrong." It has
leaked out bero tbat your minister will be
instantly withdrawn, unless all llicse
claims be forthwith satisfied and paid. It
is also well known hero that our govern
* /.i. n . v
Inifiib ronugoso government) has
offered to leavo the question of those
claims to be decided by any friendly pow
or; or, so far us regards those of a mercantile
character, to competent high-minded
men. Your government, however
in this ngo of peacemaking, is imperative
and positively refuses s> to arbitrate!
How far its greatness is shown in hectoring
a small, honorable nation, which 1?n?
been, for so many years, a friendly powI
er, i?- for your lnive mass of frcc-thinking
Si fearless citizens to say. You may rely
f on what I say; things are, at this momvnt
made most serious and warlike by Ameiica:
ftrrd n fli>t itrrtvul will, most probably
withdraw your young minister. Wo
liere, feel it a satisfaction that, in your
country the head of your government nnd
his cabinet ( mnof. derlurn wm- f??r i?-^
feel sure that if Congress bo appealed to,
.she will act with more magnanimity than
appears to be the wish of some of ihc cabinet
