Wliilo we do not applaud the cruelty
which dictated tho execution of tbo in
surgent chiefs captured on the Vlrglnlus,
wu are far from 'joncurrlig in tlio general
enlimenl that finds in It' is notion n just
cuius uelli on tho part of our goven

from tbo habit of looking at things luper
Ocially nnd judging them accordingly, they
will tli.il tbnt it is ono thing to look on the
surface and another to pcnolrato the
depth of nny subject. They will also
learn to know that it is easier to advance
an opinion than to prove it.
This consideration lends us to think
that the tH.-ct of Ibis h ibltude of super
ficltl thought is no other thnn a nnturnl
deduction from unsound promises. It
mittors not how plauslblo or apparently
well founded a conclusion may be, wo
huvo only to look to tbo premise! to do
turmlnu how far that conclusion will be
necptablo. As our npprobensWm of any
subject Is, so is our judgment; if wo look
at things on Ihu surfneo only,
our juugmeni cannot be ex
pected to comprehend tho wholo
Wo aro not surprised then that very
few of tho opinions of men now.n dy4
will bear tho test of n logical atiulyils
In mutors thut involve tlio most vital

ol public opinion Wo nro not Imensih'o
that tho oph ion of every man does not

contagious element iu privttU qiinian that
we occasionally suo the viuvva- of
h low Individuals burst out into
a flatno of popular opinion which often
cirries them beyond tho limits of strict
rilit and justice. It is lor the few lint
nre Iris given to that mode of tbinkiuu

influenced by publlo sympitliy nt tho

think wornnstfiily submit our vlewi on
tho Spanish diinViiltj. Wo do not ex
pect that our opinion will hoi I gool he
fnuse of this ciri'umtnri.'o alone, but in
far nt we ndduro legiilmato proofs to
support what we say.
Tbo first question then thnt nrlses li
has the United Slatei a rltfhl to prescribe
any particular typo of polity for llus gov
eminent of a country with whom Hie is at
pence? Has she u right to toll Spain tbnt
hn must govern Cuba according to
her (the United States) Id'iu?
Now thli pruuinptlon on the
part of our government is strictly op.
postd to every principle of international
Ai long ai tho United Slntos recog

tlllnd to all tho rlshts and privileges of a
nation, and malnliilng peaceful relatloi s
with her, Just ,r, long wo say Spain hat
the rlt-ht, the inalionablo right to speak
for herself and pro.crlbe for tho Kovern
ment of her possessions whatever policy tho
pieties. Now we nro not speaking from
anulm republican Hand point; wo are
working upon tho point eVnppui of intor-
national law If tho government of the
United Stntrt bind Itself to the olierva
tlons of cortnln limitation! of right it la
bound to hold Itself to theio obligation
until tho pnrty with whom the contract is
made, gives lomo cauo lh.il would Justify
herrelcaio from all or trom tome of the
stipulations In question. Now Spain pre
serves complete bar peaceful re
lations with the United States
and conscnuontly deterves tin
equal recognition of her right! from tbli
goturntiictit. Lot ui sen how fur tho med
dling policy (if the United State, so
loudly clamored for, it consistent with tho
provision! of international law,
' Nations nrotqtul in respect to ench
other, nnd entitled to claim equal consid
erations for tbolr rights, whatever may be
their relftlivu dimensloni or strength, or
howover greatly they may differ in gov
ernment, roligion or manners.
This perfect cquullty and cntiro
iniependjneo of all district states
is n fiindmentiil principal of pub
lic law. It Is a r.ucsisary consequence of
this equality, that each nation has a right
to govern itsolf at It may think proper,
and no una nation is entitled t todictatoa
form of government or religion, or a
courso of internal policy to unother. No
itato is entitled to tuku cognlxstico or
notice of llu domestio administration of
another state, or whnl passes within It ol
botween the government and Its own sub-
Jcts." Kiit' Com. Vol. 1 Now wbst
