We have received an extra Daily Washington

of money made during the last session of Con

Eoi!boboh Review. iThe July number of
this Review is on our table. From a criticism
on "Johnson's Notet on North America," it is
evident that considerable solicitude is felt in
England about the discussion in Canada, on
the -subject of "annexation" to the United
States. Those "loudest in its favor are the
Roman Catholics and the old party of the Fam

Strength of Cuba.
We clip the following from remarks by a cor
respondent of the St. Louis Republican i
Another fundamental lie, started and kept a
float to deceive and mislead our youth, is the
constant repetition of the weakness of Cuba.
This every reader of history knows to be gross
ly false, and its propagation is infamous, as it
sends our young men there wholly unprepared
to meet what these advisers know they have to
encounter. They are thereby surprised and the
more easily sacrificed. If they must be duped
to go, for God's take tell them the truth at to
what they have to meet. ' Instead of Cuba being
weak, she is, perhaps, the strongest power on
the globe of equal population. She has more
) defensible fortifications and military and naval
resources than any nation of her size on the
globe. Her wealth to her population is unpar
alleled, except in the great commercial cities of
the world. Her port duties are more than ten
millions of dollars, and her other resources from
taxes, tome fix or seven millions, and that in a
population of a million and a half of people.
Havana, her capital, was once taken by the Eng.
lish, when Cuba wasjiot half what she is now
in population or strength, and their preparation
for the expedition may give tome clue to what
British statesmen thought of her resources ninety
years ago. The expedition was fitted out se
cretly at Spithead, andisailed March 5th, 1762.
When it was all collected at Cape St. Nicholas,
in the island of St. Domingo, to make its secret
descent on Havana, it consisted of two hundred
vessels of all classes. Nineteen of them were
ships of the line, a large number of frigates, and
other vessels, including thirty four store ships."
I he better to conceal their approach, which was
wholly unknown at Havana, the whole fleet
passed down the Bahama channel, and were un
discovered until within a few leagues of the
city. The troops, fourteen thousand, were
Caitile or St Domingo.
Tmm tin N.r Tors. Ermine Fort, (abolition).
At toon at the war it diverted from itt origi
nal object of throwing off the yoke of Sivam.
and becomet a struggle to reduce the blacks to
bondage, it will of course draw into the quarrel
all the whites of the Island on one tide, and all
the blacks on the other. . The moneUroi, who
have no liking for the negroes, will range them
selves on the tide of planters. The free color
ed people, of whom there are more than a hun
dred and fifty thousand on the island, tame of
whom have all the intelligence of the whites, and
who have their own wrongs to avenge, will nat
urally become the leaders of emancipated slaves.
Of the slaves many are natives of Africa, men
of herculean proportion! and great strength.
who remember the horrors of a passage across
the ocean in slave ships, and are ready to take
terrible vengeance on the white race, as toon as
the opportunity is given them. The civil wars
of the Spaniards are always accompanied by
acts of barbarity, and with this infusion of the
ferocity of the African savage, the strife in Cu
ba will become frightfully bloody and cruel.
The plantations will be ravaged, the earth will
be no longer tilled, the country will become a
waste, the commerce of the island will cease.
Suppose, however, that Uris fearful struggle
should be ended in a year or two by the subju
gation of the blacks a fate which we think
would be inevitable and by their return to ser
vitude, wnat shall then be done wtih Cuba,
which, after to terrible an experience of the
calamities of Spanish rule, the whole' civilized
world will agree ought never come under -the
yoke of Spain ? An application, we suppose,
would be made to annex the Island to the Uni
ted States. This would revive in all its heat
the agitation of the slavery question, and, beget
a more violent strife than ever between the
North and boulh. We stand ready, lor our
part, to take the ground thousands of others

33-The Charleston (S.C.) Mercury is op
posed to Cuban annexation. One reason is, that
at South Carolina is preparing to fight her way
out of the Union, she will make no special cf-
;fnrt tn draw other States into it. The article
of the Mercury concludes as follows.
We do not, therefore, fear the annexation of
Cuba, because of any fatal drain in our slave
nnmilation. But because its Union with the
United States even if it could be effected with
out the process of war, and the imminent risk
of an entire disorganization 01 us soci.11 aim m

natural because it is for the interest of the
South, that there should be other slave

the laws and the constitution are not in the way
of the central government. Give ug Cuba, used
to the control of an army, and from its insular
'position requiring a strong force to protect it.
and how long before our central government
would become an uncontrollable despotism !

The Charleston .Mercury call the United
States Troops garrisoning fne forts of tliat har
bor 'the Army of Occupation," and strives in
every way to excite odium against the officers
and men, and to stir up bad blood between them
and the citizens. We presume the United States
have a right to occupy their own forts, and no
harm done' either. Do the Disunionists intend
to seize and occupy the points in question them
selves ? If so, we rfCrtoit others will have a say
in the matter. There are other States to be
consulted besides South Carolina. If the South
Carolina disunion aristocrats go on much longer
there will be a deeper feeling excited against
them in Virginia ana the South generally than
in any other quarter of the Union. Alex. ( Va)

with this heading, the Charleston Mercury enu
merates various circumstances (such as the
landing, a few days ago, of the two companies
of United States Soldiers at that post, and the
refusal of the commandant of Fort Moultrie to
allow the Charlestonians to celebrate the 27th of
June, according to custom, within the limits of
that post) which it considers as furnishing in
disputable evidence thr.t preparations have been
steadily and systematically miule lor some lime

The Mercury winds up by saying :
"We have hero stated the train of events on

of bullying the State, and preventing the exer

once to JNew Orleans. In a half an hour- after
the dispatch was received, so efficient was Col.
Webster that his artillery comuanv were on their
way to New Orleans in a half an hour after the
order was issued in the Crescent Citv 1 We
have heard various rumors regarding this unex
pected movement; we think the most plausible
one is, that the troops are required to aid the
authorites in New Orleans in keeping armed men
from proceeding to Cuba. Whatever, may be
the sympathies of our citizens, the President is
bound by a solemn oath to see the low execu
ted, and can only sustain himself and be' res
pected by the world by acting conscientiously
and independently in the present crisis.
