Whatever may have been the vi:1 er p
darkies of President Grant's Cabinet
cannot be said that there has been
general disposition to adopt a bold or
citied policy, whether in foreign affair
the domestic concerns of the nation,
resoluteness and timidity mark the wi
course of the government, and no man f
sure that the decision of to-day will not
reversed on the morrow. The game of ;
saw, however amusing in itself, is not
likely to inspire confidence when pla
persistently by the Executive of a mig
people; but nothing better cnn be expec
I from the weak head of a divided and i
j traded council.
The letter of our Washington correspo
ent, published yesterday, supplies a forci
illustration of the policy or no-policy of
Grant administration. In spite of the
hortation8 and expostulations of the Nor
ern press, the government refrained fr
I recognizing Cuba, or giving or allowing
be given to the Cuban insurgents any si
stantial aid. The United States could n
without gross logical inconsistency, med
in the quarrel between Spain and the '-G
of the Antilles." Exaggerated statemei
of the strength and successes of the revo
tionists were wholly disregarded, and ste
were taken to prevent expeditions, intend
for their support, from leaving the Gulf a
At'antic coast. All this was well enouj
when followed by thc detention of the Spa
?sh gunboats; but here the chrouic wea
ness of the administration showed itse
the Cabinet allowing themselves to be p<
suaded by the Cuban Junta to make a pt
posai to Spain for the peaceable cession
Cuba. At this point came in the note
Minister Sickles to the Spanish Governmer
than which no more roystering and pc
valiant document lins t>eeii addffrwgnd hy
powerful to a weaker nation. The Spani
ministry promptly declined to hearken
threats or to be swayed by intimidatio
The martial spirit, dormant since the su
ce88fnl war with Morocco, "was once mo
aroused, and Spain allowed it to be plain
seen that she had rather fight at a disa<
vantage than submit to insolent dictatioi
The note was in the worst possible tasti
but little courtesy or savoir faire was e:
pected from the notorious individual wi
represents the United States at the Cou
of Spam, and it was hoped that the refus;
of the Senate to confirm his appointing
would relieve the government from cm ba
rassment, and wipe out the remembranc
of a serious diplomatic blunder.
The whole business was bad enough whil
Sickles was believed to be the sole author <
the note, but our Washington correspondeni
lifting the veil of secrecy, declares authoritt
lively that Minister Sickles was only "tb
lowing the language of a cable telegrai
from the Secretar}- of State." All was fis
that cam? to the net of Sickles, and th
hero of Gettysburg was doubtless gla
enough to have an opportunity of showinj
his own bluntness and the hectoring spiri
of his government. President Grant am
his Cabinet are, it seems, alone responsibl
for what Minister Sickles has done; bu
with charming vacillation may, before anoth
er sun goes down, disavow their own. act
and make ready to cast their Jonah into th?
jaws of political oblivion.
And what is the present attitude of tin
United States Government towards Spaii
and Cuba ? The prospects of the insur
gents are gloomy in the extreme. Dissen
sion and jealousy rob them of their strength
their leading generals are accused of t reach
er}*; the American volunteers are eager t(
return to their homes. The career of UK
Cuban rebels promises to be as brief as tha
of their first man-of-war, the termination o
whose bloodless cruise was announced ii
the dispatches of yesterday. And ut tin
moment when the clouds hang like a pal
over the insurgent cuuse, the United State;
rush headlong to the rescue, and tell Spair
that our dogs of war must soon be unleash?
ed if Cuba is not free. There might )>e sonu
chivalry in talking in this way to a natioi
of equal power and equal strength, but it h
not the habit of this glorious country to hil
one its own size. Nor will the government,
we undertake to say, follow V2> its big wonk
by brave deed*. The United States will nol
go to war, even with Spain, however thc
Cabinet and the pres3 may bluster. Nay,
we venture the assertion that, despite thc
Sickles note is government has 710 present
intention nf r, 77 so far as a simple'recog?
nition of the belligerent rights of the Cubans.
ls not this a contemptible jrosition to be oc?
cupied by a once proud ard united people?
That Cuba will ultimately be annexed to
the United States we do not doubt, but we
do not look for thc immediate realization of
the dream of thc Northern roy3terer3, who
want moro iwlitical worlds to conquer. We
have territory enough for all our wants, and
if the Cubans know what *s good for them,
they will put off as long as they can the
consummation of their union with this coun?
try. We sympathize with any people who
fight for freedom and independence; but it
is hard to see how the white Cubans could
obtain either by joining their destinies, at
this time, to those of the United States.
Hints for Joarnuliitb-Hou to Manage
? a Newspaper.
An old and experienced Western newspa?
per man, Joseph Medill, of Chicago, lately
delivered a lecture before a convention of
Indiana editors and publishers, on the true
road to success in journalism. The views
advanced in the following extract are so
sound and practical, and have, withal, so
wide an application, that we copy and com?
mend them to the attention of our friends
of the Fourth Estate throughout tue South:
'.One branch of the publishing business re?
mains tobe mentioned before closing these
remarks-advertising. I entirely disapprove
of the practice, altogether too common, of
taking column or half column 'ads.' on con?
tracts for a year at a time, at greatly reduced
rates. These advertisements are mostly quack
medicines, lottery swindles, or humbug patent
rights. Such advertisements are an abomina?
tion in the sight of readers, particularly the
detestable cuts which accompany them. To
thrust this lying, swindling trash by the col
umnfuL, cuts and all, Into the face of decent
and respectable people, for a year at a stretch,
is enough to cause them to discontinue their
paper until the nuisance is abated. For all
such advertisements you should charge single
ralos, without discount, and demand advance
payment. In addition to publishing this trash
at shamefully low prices, printers are gene?
rally, or frequently, swindled out of the pay
promised, and I confess to a certain degree of
satisfaction that they are cheated; for it ls a
deserved punishment for inserting the stuff at
such prices, on generous confidence, instead
of cash down. The true way is to^make no
contracts at less than monthly rates, and if
any one insists on keeping an 'ad.' standing
for six or twelve months, ohdrge him monthly
rates, and collect every month. Open a "wants'
department in your paper; put the price at not
to exceed ten cents a line per insertion; en?
courage thc people to make known their wants
and transact their business through the col?
umns of your paper; classify these advertise?
ments under their proper heads, and insert
them lu a conspicuous part of-your sheet. By
a little tact and considerable perseverance, you
can establish this line of advertising, and.
once established, it will prove not only profit?
able to the paper, but very useful to its patrons.
When advertising is dull, fill up with reading
matter and disquisitions on all kinds of local
topics; and be not tempted to save composi?
tion by taking in quarter-price quack medi?
cines. The additional reading matter will, in
the long run. help your paper more than
enough to make good the cost ol' thc extra
type-setting and loss ot' the humbug advertise?
ments. Establish a living scale for advertis?
ing, and adhere tenaciously to it. If your
neighbor is so foolish as to cut under you. do
not follow his weak example; for he will hurt
ids own business far more than he can yours.
Stand by your rates, and do us nearly a cash
business as lt ls possible. Long credits is the
bane that destroys so many newspapers. Jt is
this slow poison that kills them, or causes
them to drag out a miserable, sickly and unre
mnnerative existence. All the expenses at?
tending the publishing business are cash, and j
unless you receive cash for your labors, how
can you expect to succeed or prosper ?"
