It need not occasion auy surprise to
bear of u pretty geueral uprising of
P.epoldieans in Spain. The dissatis?
faction among that class of the Spanish
people is growiug, und it is believed
by many that the troubles with Cuba
oil'ere un opportunity for an uprising
in tbo mother couutry. iu fact it is
sutd that the seutiiug of so many troops
to Cuba is as .-iuch the part of a pro?
gramme to weaken the bauds of tlio
Monarchists at home as it is to quell
the rebellion in the islands, the idea
beiug to reduce the military at homo
to such an extent ns to give the Repub?
licans almost a freo hand.
The Spanish regulur army is ouly
about 150,000 strong, and it is pro?
posed to eend ubont ltJ?.Ou? of that
number to Cuba shortly, thus leaving
only 50,01)0 to preserve order at home.
The Atlanta Constitution, writing ou
this question, says: "Tbo Republicans
in Spain are already counting upon the
weakness of the Goverumeut, and since
the recent shipments of soldiers to
Cuba there have beeu uprisings in va?
rious provinr.ep. It would not lie at nil
surprising if the opponents of the ex?
isting dynssty should inaugurate au ex?
tensive revolution in the course of the
next fow weeks, The Spanish Govern
ment is in a bad fix, If it lets Cuba
go, its enemies at home will make that
a pretext for revolt. If, on the otber
, hand, the bulk ol tbo army is seut to
whip Cuba back into the traces, tbo
Spanish people will probably riso eu
masse and establish a republic. Almost
bankrupt, with a small army and in
the undst ol domestic strife, it is dilti
cult to see how Spain cau suppress
the Cuban insurgents and ut the same
time meiutaiu I.er present Government
Under ony and all circumstances tho
outlook, when viewed from the stand?
point of the Spanish Goverumeut, is
anything but pleasant,

There is considerable talk in certain

Every now und then eomo fellow or

may bo added that they have alwuys

a call for a convention to meet iu To

Tlio proposed gathering of the surviv?

er tho battle of New Orleans General

The Palmetto regiment went 1,100
strong t.i the Mexican war, but only 800
survivors returned. A committee was
niipoiutcd to dooido which was tho
1.luvest of tiiu 800, but where nil were
Spartans in valor tho cOOMllittcc had a
hopeless task. Tho vnse then went into
tho possession of South Caxoliuu, and
tho legislature then undertook to dis?
pose of it according to the wishes of
The legislature dually disposed of the
mutter by deciding that the vivo should
go to the lust survivor of the Palmetto

survivors, mid their coining to Atlanta
