The nresent CsDta!n General of Cnba has
acted In good faith In carrying out tha treaty
obligations of Bpaln for the suppression of the
auve traney ana tne npamen uovernment ap
pears to have hitherto approved the proceedings
of that officer. The result haa been that the
number ol slaves Introduced Into Cnba within
the twelve months ended th. 30th of last Sep
tember la eatlmated at from aeven to eight
thouaand, as compsred with eleven thonssnd
two hnndiea ana nny-ionr, the number Intro
duced In th. oorreepondlnz twelve months of
the preceding yesr.
inis aiminution in tneuuosu Slave trsuic
wonld be sstlsfactory If It were not that It la
malnlT owing to the exertlona of one Individ
ual alone. General Dolce, the present Csptsln
General of Cuba, who, It must be borno In mind,
la liable to be removed at any moment, when,
In all probability, the trade would again re
sume Its wonted vigor,
Gensrsl pule, complains Utterly of the want
of sufficient power conferred upon him, and of
the Inadequacy of the provisions of the Spanish
penal code for aupprosalng tho Cnban slsve
tradei and if an officer so well disposed aa Is
the preaent Captain General of Cnba finds It
impossible to put a stop to th. Importation of
slsve Into Cuba, It may easily be Inferred that
a leu honorable offleer would And ample ex
cuses for the non-performance of his duties In
this respect.
In order to put an end to the slave trade In
Cuba, It la necessary that the Bpanlah Govern
ment ehonld take stcpa for amending the lawa
firohlbltlag the Introduction of alavea Into that
sland. The existing lawa are admitted by the
Bpanlah authorities to be insufficient for the
purposes for which they voro framed, and,
until they are amended, the sincerity and good
faith of the Bpanlah Government will be liable
to be called In queatlon.
The 4th and 13th articles of tho penal code
only serve as a protection to the slave dealers.
The former of these articles prohibits tho sell'
nro by the authorities of any newly-Imported
slsves, no matter how notorious may have been
the violation of the Bpanlah lawa in Introdu
cing mo negroea, ir once tne aiavea nave been
conveyed to a property or plantation In the
island.
The 13th article, on the other hand, provides
that the legal punishment of slave dealers and
their accomplices csn only be Inflicted In vir
tue of a sentence of th. "Royal Andlencla Fre
torlali" but In conaeqnence of nearly the whole
ot the population of Cuba, as well as tho sub
ordinate aulhorltlea, being more or less mixed
up and Interested In the alave trade. It Is Im
possible to procure evidence to convict tho par
ties engaged In the traffic, and this artlclo re
malna therefore entirely Inoperative.
Eleven hundred slaves hsve, as la well known
to the Government of the United States, been
recently seised by the Csptaln Oeneral of Cuba
after they had been successfully landed and
conveyed to a plantation1 In that Island At
tempta will doubtless be msdo to procure their
restitution on the ground that thev have been
Illegally aelzed by the Captain General) but if
one of these negroes Is given np to the slave
aeaiera, ciiuer or tne oraera oi tne spsmsn
Government or by the decision of a Judicial
inuun.i, ucr jnsjcBij'. uovernment trust mat
the Government of the United States will unite
with her Msjeaty's Government In addresalog
a aerlona remonstrance on tho subject to the
Bpanlah Government.
Pihuabt 4, 1601.
'MABam. December IS. 1SSS
M. lb Mlx'aa: In conformity with the wish
expressed by your Excellency, In tho conversa
tion which I had tbe honor of holding with
you on tho 14th Instant upon the subject of tho
slave trade In the Island of Cuba, I proceed to
particularize In writing Ihoso measure to
wuicn i aiiuaea ss neing, in tne opinion or her
Msjesty's Government, calculated to put a
Anal stop to thst deplorable traffic, tho adop
tion of which measures I am Instructed to press
npon her Csthollc Msjeaty's Government.
Aa T h1 th. hnnn. nf -!- tn Y-
lency, tho Government of the Queen, my mis-'
tress, nave learnea wiui extreme satlalacllon,
from the official reports of her. Majeaty'a con
sul at Havana, that a considerable diminution
In tho number of negroes lllegslly Imported
Into Cnba within the yesr ending the 5tli of
Bcpteniber last has taken plsce aa compared
with former yeara, and alao that a well Judged
amelioration in the treatment of those legally
held In alavery thero haa been encouraged by
the aulhorltlea of her Catholic Majeaty a
meaaure, as her Majesty's consul romarks,
which haa happily combined a regard for hu
manity and a aenalble Increase In the product
iveness of the plantations In which It ass been
sdopted.
Her Msjeaty's Government hsve pleasure In
recognising the good will and activity dis
played by the presentCaptalnGeneralof Cnba,
aa well aa the measure of his success, lu check
ing the slave trade. It appears, however, that
such are tne temputiona to unprincipled indi
viduate to Introduce alavea Into Cuba, and auch
the facilities still afforded to them by the defects
of certain parts of the Spanish lawa regarding
tne enDject, tuat wnnout aome moaiucauona
in these, his well-meant efforta must contiuno
to fall abort of their lntendod object.
The measures to which her Majesty's Gov
ernment wonld call your Excellency's attention
are
1st. An enactment declaring alave trade to
be piracy. Tbla Is a measure whleh haa been
adopted by many natlona. Including those pos
sessing largo numbers of slaves. Its success
haa been aignal In checking the alave trade In
countries where It moat prevailed. It baa
mainly contributed to free Brazil from tho
stigma attaching to this Inhuman traffic, and
that without any Injury to her productiveness
or material proaperlty. HerMaJesty'a Govern
ment are not aware of any sound argument
which can be alleged against this measuro.
9d. A modification of the Bth and 13th ar
tlclca of the Bpanlah penal code In force In tho
Island of Cuba.
According to the former of these artielos, the
aothorltlea cannot selzelmported negroes when
once they havo been conveyed to a property or
plantation, bowover notorious tho fact of auch
violation of the law having been committed
may be.
According to tho latter, tho legal punishment
of slave traders and their accomplices can only
be Inflicted In virtue of a aentenco by tho Royal
Audleucla Pretorlal. Now, It Is well known
that the difficulty of producing evidence before
this court la ao great, that proof to convict
those accused of such charges la seldom, If
ever, obtained, however morally convlncod the
ruling autborltlea may be of their guilt. It la
true that tho Captain General has power to re
move officers of whose delinquency he feels
certain, and It la true that the present Csplsln
General Dulce, hla predecesaor, the Duko de la
Torre, ana otuen, nave exerciser mis power in
regard to certain flagrant casesg but how much
moro effective aa regarda public opinion, how
much more satisfactory to her Catholic Majes
ty's Government would 1. be thst such punish
ment and degradation ehonld result from a
legal conviction, rather lhan from the exerclao
nf dlacratlonal nowcr.
1 believe that in stating that the experience
of tbe Duke de la Torre, aa well as that of Gon
eral Dulce. havo caused them to coincide In tho
opinion that the adoption of both the measures
to wuicn i nave auue aurubcu. wuum uu ex
pedient and necessary for tho final extirpation
of the alave trado In Cnba. lam not ovcratep
plng the truth In bringing, however, these
measures under your Excellency's attention, I
feel confident that they will be submitted to
tho enlightened examination duo to the Intrin
sic merlta of the great end they are meant to
forward, and also with tho most friendly dispo
sition on your Excellency's part to set at reat
foriver, a serlons and painful matter of discus
sion between the Governments of Great Urltatn
and Spain.

Ml Lobd i In conformity with the Instruc
tions eonlalned In your lordshlp'e dospatch of
tho 13th ultimo. I did not fall Ln 'Ttirraa to the
Marquis de Mlrsflores the gratification of her
Majesty's Government at the diminution of
tne nave traae, and the amelioration In the
treatment of alavea In Cnba, reported by her
Aiajcaiy-s Acting consul wcncrai in nia acs
rtstch to vonr lordshln of flentcmber so.
I astd that II was satisfactory to know that
tnese improvements rcsnitearrora mo determi
nation of the present Captain General i and
on the Marqnla do Mlraflorea replying that
Gcn.Dulce.br the manner In which he had
acted, had fallhfullr earrtcd out the wishes of
iicr uatnouc Majesty's uovernment, 1 observed
thst, snch being the esse, I conld feel no
doubt thst his Excellency would taka Into se
rious cousiuerauou two measures, wnicn ap
peared to her Majesty's Government, and, In
deed, to all Dersona acnualnted with tho Bub
Ject, were wanting to enable that officer, who
noes not tact: tne will, to put a stop st onco to
the Importation of alaves Into Cnba, and to ro
allxe a wlah which his Excellency had so often
concurred with mo ln expressing, that th. ae
rlona and painful question which was contin
ually recurring between the two Governments
In regsrd to this matter should be forevor set
at rest.
The two mcaiurea I alluded to were, I said i
1st. An enactment declarlntr tho alave trade to
be piracy) 2d. Tho modification of tho penal
code in force In Cuba, and particularly of the
Oth and 13th articles.
With respect to the first, of these measures,
I observed that Its efficacy had been ahown ln
the caae of Brazil, and no reasonsble objection
bed ever been alleged against It by the Span
ish Government.
With respect to tho second, tho 9th and 13th
articles of tho code sited as a protection to the
siave-traaera, ana ueiealea tne intention ot
the law and the well intended efforta of the
Spanish superior autborltlea. The Marquis of
Miranores promlsoa that ho would tako thcae
matters into his consideration, and assured mo
thst good will on his part would not be found
wanting to do all that was possible to put an
end to the slave trade.
As I had referred to particular articles of
tho penal codo, he requested me to address blm
a note. In whleh they should be particularized,
In order that he might be able at once to direct
nia attention to tne points to which her Majea
ty'a Government alluded.
I have consequently, ln tho note nf which I
have tho honor to enclose a copy, pointed out
to the Marquis de Mlrsflores tbe effect of the
articles 0 and IS of the code, which are clearly
stated ln Mr. Crawford'e report No. 13, of
