BPTJtrr or THS LONDOS PB ESS ON THE CUBAN
Q?sanoy AB CONNECTED WITH TES UNITED
LONDON, September 17.-The Telegraph has
_ ai editorial to-day on the relations existing be?
tween Spain and the United St atf-e, wherein ii
?aja: 'The recognition of the Cobing won ld
place Washington io the wrong on the Alabama
question. With what eonaisVeocy can rights
be granted wandering gaari Jas, not formida?
ble enough for a blockade? I ! England desired
to put tb? accusers of her policy out of court,
she should encourage the policy ascribed to
President Grant. We prefer to take the ques?
tion on the broad grounds of common interests.
War between 3pain and America would be a
material injury that would be equally appor?
tioned. The shipping of the litter would be a
prey to privateers, and her commerce, with its
profits, would pass to neutrals. The r?daction
of the national, debt would be arrested, inter?
nal reorganization chocked, and public dis- .
content wonld revive with the growing bar-. ]
deas. Spain would lose Cuba, bat would con?
tinue Spain with her obstinate tenacity of re?
sistance, her great undeveloped resources, her
power to attack American trade, and her com?
parative invulnerability to retaliation. America
would gam at a heavy cost which might for
years be mere a loss than a gain; would be en?
tangled in a war combining a maximum of
cost and a mimiaram of glory. Sn -h conside?
rations cannot pat? unregarded at Washing?
ton, Bince there is still ground for the hope
that peace may be preserved."
Tho Examiner, on ibo subject of Spain and
Cuba, bas tho following: "By the history,of
analogy, there is no longer a physical irnprdi
ment to the representation of Cuba in the
Spanish Cortes. Expediency recommends it,
bat for Coba it is not too late. If not sold or
surrendered, her own inhabitants maslin
tome form, bs mortgaged to the Americans,
with the certainty that once ia pawn, sba will
eventually become theirs. It is better for
. Cuba that this should be so, and it is better,
perhaps, for Spain."
The Times has an editorial on Sickles' note to
the Spanish Government on the Cuban ques?
tion, wherein it says : 'lt was generally be?
lieved President Grant would not interfere or
allow interference o a the Coban question until
"Congress could vote upon it. Is he less reso?
lute than formerly, or has pressure forced him
to *fh;tion demands apon Spain for the aban?
donment of Cuba ? No doubt the alternative
offered Spain is her abandonment ot the is?
land, or American recognition of the insur?
gents. The probabilities are* that we are on
the eve of seri?os event?. The straggle will
- be hopeless so far as Spain is concerned, but
the government cannot, reust the impulses of
the people. The name of Spanish pride ia
fact kindling, and the government in striving
to check it will be extinguished. In the most
tranquil provinces ot Spain come offers of men
and arms, in order that regalar troops may
go to Coba. The aggressive policy of the
United States cannot be justified by the at?
titude of Spain towards Coba. It is not a
question of slavery, for the abolition of slavery
has already been decided apon-not a determi?
nation of Spain to resist th a demanda, ol tba j
Cabans, fer negotiations have been opened
to allow a severance of the hland. Setting
aside the question whether the means to ?et
Coba free is fair to Spain, it is doubtful if a ;
war of ra?? might not ensue if the insurrec?
tion is not extinguished before the cession of |
the island. Under the pr?sent critical circum?
stances the Coriss, on reassembling, will have
to torn their whole thoughts and attention to
the difficulties and dangers of Cuba."

Au Appen! In their Behalf to Mr. Peabody
The following touching appia! is to be for?

signatures of ten thousand Southern women
can be ootained. Copies are now being circulat?
ed through all the Southern States with space
sufficient for fifty names. Ladies of influence

desired number of signatures have been ob?
tained, tbe copies aro tm be collected, all the
names to be attached together, aodforwarded
as above stated :
Dear Sir-The earnest philanthropy of your
character induces ns to prefer making the fol?
lowing representation to you personally, in?
stead ot conveying them to you through the
distinguished gentlemen whom you have ap?
pointed agents of your beneficence.
Although yon have intrusted (he expenditure
of this sum to those trustees, so high is your
character tor prudence and judgment, that we
are certain tiny advice lrom yon as to its dis?
posal will be all powerful with th; m.
The present state of that section of your na?
tive country m which we live, is m every re?
spect distressing; but there is one circum?
stance which deserves especially to employ the
kindly brain and hand of the philanthropist
we refer to the condition of tho women of tho
South. Until the late -war we had never been
compelled, owing to the form of society under
which we were born and reared, to labor for
our own support. Affluence was the rulo, pov?
erty tbs aanaaajaaaai-O-?mg au? m4mjSSEiS&
became necessary tor us to exert ourselves in
the most arduous and unaccustomed duties,
our conduct proved that we lacked neither the
will nor tbe ability to labor perseveringly, and
to bear with fortitude every burden which it
Eleased God to lay upon ns. The issue of the war
as deprived thousands of us of our only means
ot support. Harder to bear than this, ita terri?
ble vicissitudes of slaughter and disease have
taken away from many of us tbe strong arms
and brave hearts of those who would have
counted it all joy to labor for ns. *
We do not complain of this; we yield to the
will of Him "who doeth all things well," and
"who doth not willingly afflict the children of
men." We do not ask for any help except the
opportunity to help ourselves. Owiug to the
tonner condition of society in tbe South, there
are only two occupations open to ns-teaching
and sewing. For tbe former pursuit many of
us are unfit either from temperament or from
not having been educated expressly for this
occupation. The latter employment is so se?
dentary that many of us have not strength
and health tc enable os to pursue it. However,
in spite of these bindrauces, so many of us
have been compelled to engage in these pur?
suits, that the lemuneration which they afford
has necessarily become, as a general rule, piti
fullv small, oning to ttl? great competition in
We believe that a portion of your noble gift
could in no possible way be so useful to our
impoverished section as by employing it in the
establishment of an institution whose whole
design should be to open new fields of labor to
the women of the South, and to fit them to cul?
tivate these with ability. Such an institution,
when once established, could easily be made,
in great part, self-supporting by two measures:
First, by allowing all household work to be
performed by the inmates. Second, by letting
the employments which are taught be of such
a nature tbat many of them shall be remunera?
tive to the school, even while the pupils ire
these rules would also bave the desirable
effect of making the fees for attendance very
The employments which conld and should be
taught in such a place are numberless. We
will enumerate a few, to give you a more dis-?
tinct idea of what we'propose:
Printing, for example, would be very suita?
ble, and might bc made quite profitable by un?
dertaking to do job work for persons desirous
of aiding m this manner the plan of tbe insti?
Wood engraving is also an occupation for
which women are peculiarly well titted.

cabinet-maker coulu he taught with advan?
There is a great deal of rough painting d jne,
such as that on signs, window shades and
theatrical scenery, which requires little or no
natural talent, and conld be learned by any
If any of those who were learning wood
carving or scene painting happened to be gift?
ed with real artistic talent, it would manifest
itself in these pursuits. Such pupils could
then be separated from tbe rest, and thorough?
ly trained as painters and sculpt ore.
Gardening, bookkeeping, telegraph operating,
and many other suitable occupations will readi?
ly suggest themselves to your mind.
If you decide to advise that a portion of your
gift be employed for Ibis purpose, it would be
well to promise that the institution should be
situated iu that one of the Southern States
which could pledge itself to contribute most
hugely to its endowment, either by gifts of
monev or ol public lands. Then it should be
placed in that county of tbe chosen State
which could give the largest additional
Even if very few could be trained in this
school, great good would be done; for each
pupil, returning to ber native town, would con?
vey to its inhabitants the germs of entirely
hew ideas. She would carry to many fainting
hearts thc good tidings that their lot is not so
hopeless SB it seems-that they may yet be
saved, both from the scanty support of ill-paid
and exhausting labor, and from the humili?
ation of eating the bitter bread of dependence.
In conclusion, we would express to vou in
our names, and in those of our fathers, broth?
ers, husbands and sons, our gratitude to you
for what you have already done for your im?
poverished Pdlow-conntiymen of the South.
May you receive your" reward on that day
when you shall meet for the first time the mul?
titudes of those whom you have blessed, and
shall hear from sacred "lips the joyful words:

Upshot of the Removal Project.

WASHINGTON, Wednesday, September
It is published that Genera! Grant will ret
within a few days, whereat the office-seek
are rejoiced; but nobody else appears to kt
that he bas ever been ont of town. The Wt
House has been refitted after the manner
some of Ur. Lincoln's numerous renovatio
and by and by we shall see rn the newspap
that Congress bas voted $40.000 more to
furnish it. After all this ontlay, there will
nothing in it to admire. The late Thomas
Benton, many years ago, christened it "B
card's Roost," and it is astonishing to obse
how aptly the term applies to it now.
There was some talk in Congress last win
about purchasing a park on tbe northwest:
boundary of this city, and erecting what w
called a "suitable mansion for thc Executiv
Speculators-amongst them several senate
and one or two generala of the army-imme
ately concluded that this would be done, a
accordingly the price of unimproved real prc
erty in that neighborhood went up one ho
dred per cent. Imagine their disappointmei
however, when Congress adjourned withe
obliging them by ordering the removal of t
White House, and their subsequent ago
over tbe demand of tbe Mississippi Valley I
the transfer of tho Federal Capital to St. Loni
A convention, I believe, has been called

the movement and preparing the way. I
that Carl Schurz will have nothing to do ne
winter but to introduce a joint resolution Dr
viding for the removal of the ?eat of gov?r
meut to his own headquarters. This is tl
programme, and, judging from tbe tumble
real estate, there aie people m Washington t
day who believe it will be faithfully ai
speedily carried ont. Our city press alreac
sends up a feeble cry against it, and our re
estate men tremble when they bear the prob
bib ti ea of removal discussed on the ?tre
corners. Ever 6inee Picrrepout (tbe assistai
prosecutor in tLerSurratt case) told the jui
that unless they convicted Surratt Congrei
would avenge the insult to the "loyal" pe op!
by removing the capital, there hos been a fee
ing of uneasiness and apprehension pervadin
the minds of Washington real estate speculi
tors; and this recalls (he fact that one of th
most prominent of this class was foreman c
the Surratt jury, and he wa9 for councilor,
althoueh the testimony was strongly in favo
ot the innocence of the accused. This "bael
mg" and "filling" process on tho part ol' th
interested residents of Washington serves n
purpose, aud will not arrest the removal of th
seat ot Federal Government whenever it ma;
be personally beneficial to our Yankee mern
bera of Congress to order such removal, Tho;
have no sense of right and justice-no regari
for the burdens of the people, and especial!
.none for tho permanent inhabitants of the Dis
trict of Columbia, whom they charge witt
"disloyally," ?kc, ?fcc, because some ol then
dared to vote against negro suffrage, and ti
oppose "carpet-bag" and negro domination it
the city government. The Federal Capital wai
located here by the men wbo framed tbe con
etitution, And, like thal instrument, was doum
less intended tn last as long as the country re?
mained a republic; but as onr organic law bas
been substantially overthrown, so can the
same parricidal hands overthrow the perma?
nent seat of government, and ttteywotud do it
ere the expiration of the current year if it were
possible to agree upon a new location. What
would it matter to the men who bave piled up
a debt ot ta^ofl.fyv^fwi u aioo^ooojonftj
Trr.??fti ..??? mi.'i in tessa! aw baddiaa;* for
covernment in the valley of the Miesissipi or
elsewhere? Perhaps the State of M ?sa DUH
might agree to issue bonds tor tho required
amount. Where, then, would be the objec?
tion to removal? The Di-tnjct of Columbia
lies on the border of Maryland; its native citi?
zens sympathize with those of Maryland, and
Maryland is largely Democratic. St. Louis is
within the State of Missouri, and Missouri is
controlled by a Radical minority. This fact
alone is enough for the Schencks and Logans,
to say nothing of the "Grand Army of the Rc
public," and all the thieves and lobbyists who
would profit by tbe removal. It is of no sort
of use for citizens ot Washington to discuss
the question and hang around the doors of
Congress with certificates of "loyalty" in their
pockets. The Yankee jobbers and speculators
who bold high carnival in tbat building will
vote-to remove the seat of government when?
ever they believe it will be personally beneficial
to them, and not before. The wants and
wishes of Ibis community will not bo consid?
ered. The proximity of Mount Vernon and
the sacred name of WASHINGTON will have no
weight: and even the bones of thirty thousand
Federal soldiers, buried around thia city,
cannot form a chain strong enough to hold the
capital to its presftit site, whenever Yankee in?
terest may demand its removal. For the pres?
ent I eeo no necessity for any anxiety on the
subject amongst the citizens of Washington.
Long before new buildings could be erected at
some other point, thc existing dynasty will
bave been swept away, and the useless expen?
diture of seventy-five* or one hundred millions
o' dollars will be avoided.
The estimated value of government property
in and around this city is $60,000,000; and, in
tbe opinion of competent architects, it would
require at least $40,000,000 more to purchase
the same amount of property at any other
point. The capital hos already c >st nearlv
$12 OOO 000, and I understand that Mr. Clark,
the architect of the building, has expressed
the opinion that it would require at least
$20,000,000 to rebuild it. even iu this city. Be?
sides this vast government interest here,
there is an assessed valuation of about $100,
000,000,1 believe, on private real property. It
is tru* that this woulel not bo lost by the remo?
val of the capital, although many of its owners
think otherwise. Tho fact that Washington
bas been the scat ot Federal Government to?
day hns, in my judgment, been detr?mentai to
its material prosperity. It has all the natural
advantages tor a great city. Its water powe ns
enormous, and its pioximity to the bituminous
coal beds of the Aliegbairies naturally suggests
the idea of a large manufacturing place. These
considerations afford some crumbs of comfort
to the proyerty-bolders in their sore alarm. X.

Sir-Your letter, dated August 30, addressed
to the Secretary of tho Treasury, and enclos?

of the Merchants'aud Miners' Transportation
Company, and also a letter to you from Thomas
B. Andrews, agent of th? Baltimore and Savan?

Both of these agents complain of certain
fees, taxes or "port tonnage duties'' Imposed
upon and collected of the lines of steamer.!
they respectfully represent by the city authori?
ties of Baltimore and Savannah, and their ob?
ject is to ascertain whether euch fees or "port
tonnage duties" are legal.
'J ho question whether State or municipal
authorities have the ngjt to levy and collect
harbormasters' fees of vessels entering the
ports ot any States or city claiming this right
came before tho Supreme Court ol the District
of Columbia in 1867, upon the claim of the har
bormaster of the City ot Washington of fifty
cents for port tonnage of tbe sloop Nautilis,
Captain C. E. Barnes, master and owner, of
9 40-100 tons. Mr. Justice Wylie, in deliver?
ing the cpinion of the court, after argument,
said: * * ? "The plaintiff in error of
the sloop Nautilus, a vessel ol' less than fitly
tons burden, engaged m the coasting trade,
and althoueh the judgment against him was for
the small amount of fitly cents ?ndeoste, yet
he has considered it hip dutv to bring the ease
before u? for tJ < purpose of testing a question
which is if general concern to all vessels visit
I ing this port. Section 10 ol the first article ot
of the Constitution of the United Slates de
! clares 'no State shall, without the consent of
[ Congress, lay an impost, or duties on imports
or exports, except what may be for the nee of
the treasury of the United estates, and all such
laws shall bo subject to fie revision and con?
trol of Congress.' It further declares that no
State shall, without the consent of Congress,
lay duty on tonnage, <to.
"Tut first question for cur determination ip,
whether these 'harbor feos,' as they are called
in the corporation law, are duties on tonnage,
which the corporation is prohibited from col?
lecting withont the consent of Congress."
The judge then proceeds to consider this
question, and having shown that these "harbor
ieee" were neither more nor less than "ton?
"It would have been gross inconsistency in
the constitution bad it conferred on Congress
the right of exclusive legislation as to duties on
imports or exports, and left the several States
the right to lay taxes on vessels engaged in the
conveyance of those imports and exports. It
foliows, therefore, that the ordinance in ques?
tion is a violation of the Constitution ot the

standing it is called by a different name. The
judgment of the justice of the peace must be
This judgment of the justice of the peace
was adverse to the owner and master of the
vessel who appealed therefrom.
"The Supreme Coart ot the United States, at
its December term, 1867, in a case brought be?
fore it by writ of error to the Supreme Court
of Louisiana, decided that a statute of a State
enacting that the masters and wardens of a
port within it should be entitled to demand
and reoeive, in addition to other fees, the sum
of rive dollars, whether called on to perform
any se vice or not, for every vessel arriving at
that port, is a regulation of commerce with?
in the meaning of the constitution, and also a
duty on tonnage, and is unconstitutional and
void."-[See 6 Wallace's Reports, 31]
In delivering the opinion of the court, Chief
Justice Chase said: "That the act of thc Legis?
lature of Louisiana is a regulation of commerce
can hardly be doubted. It imposes a tax upon
every ship entering the port of New Orleans,
to be collected upon every entry. In the case
of a steamer plying between that port and
ports in adjoimug States of Alabama and
Texas, it becomes a serious burden, and works
the very mischief against which the consti?
tution intended to protect commerce among

His majesty wanted on that occasion to attend

MW KEEP THE BODY IN GOOD REPAIR
It is much easier to keep the ty.tom in good condi?
tion than to restore lt to that condition when shat
tered by disease. The "House of Life," Uko other
bouses, should bc prompt'y propped up and sus?
tained whenever it shows any sign of giving way
The first symptoms of physical debility should bo
taken as a hi at that a stimulant is required, lhe
next question is, "what shall the stimulant be?"
A wholesome vegetable tonic, the stimalatiag
properties of which are modified by the Juices and
extracts of anti-febrile aud laxative roils and herbs
something whi :h will regulate, soothe oud pu-ify,
as well as invigorate-is thf'mcdicine required by
the debilitated. There arc many preparations which
arc claimed to be of this description, but HOSTET
TEB'd STOMACH BITTERS, the great vegetable
preventive and restorative, that has won its way to
the conQdoDce of thepuMic and thc medical profes?
sion, by a quarter of a century of unvarying success,
stands pro ?minent ame nj them all. To expatiate
on its popularity would be to repeat a twice-toll
tale. It ls only necessity to consult thc records of
tbe United States Beverina Department to learn that
its consumption is greater than that of any other
proprietary remedy of either native or foreign
As a means of sustaining the health and strength
under a fiery temperature, the BITTERS have a
paramount cla m to consideration. It has tho effect
ot furtllying and bracing thc nervous aad muscular
systems against the ordinary consequences of sud?
den and violent changes of temperature, and is,
therefore, peculiarly useful at this season, w!?en hot
sunshine by day, and ice-cold dews by night, alter?
nately heat and chill the blood of those who ae ex
posed to them.
HOSTEITKR'o STOMACH BITTERS are sold in
bottles only. To avoid being d scsi ved by counter?
feits, see that lha name of the article is on the label,
and embossed on the glass of tho bottles, and our

EARATION, compounded by one of onr oldest aad
most esteemed diuggists, bas, during the short lime
In which it has been offered to the public, attained
a reputation which has almost entirely driven out of
market the various tonic and stimulant? which, for
a fewmon'hs, by exorbitant puffing and heavy ad?
vertising, succeeded in building a profitable busi?
ness for their projectors.
So'omon's Bittern arc not of the flashy style, de?
pending upon larc- advertising, bought puffs and
fictitious recommendations for a sale to a gullible
public. Their composition is wei) known to and ap - *
proved by many of our best physician?, and the pro?
prietors depend upon thc intrinsic melita of tfn-ir
mcdiclne to make it as popular as it i? curative.
They do net pretend to offer a medicinal prepara?
tion that will cure all the ills that flesh is heir to,
but they do contend that the judicious use of these
Ritters will greatly alleviate human mfloriug, and
bring very many to a state of comparative health
who have long been strangers to that great blessing.
One good genuine recommendation of any pro?
fessed curative is worth dozens or hundreds of
bought certificates, and the Messrs. SOLOMONg
have only published a few out of the hundreds of un?
solicited testimonies which the have received. We
tin* morning give a copy of alerter from Hon. ALI-X.
