Mr. MALI.OIIY rtuuuittl tin remarks in favor of tic#
Dili which In' eoiumeueoil a.verul d*)i ago. JIo com
mciicctl by hi let! y reca,.! tula ting his funnel arguments,
and itfili.il to several objections lli.il h.ul boon urgnl by
o|i|k)1uniU of the proposition. Ho would not, howeicr,
undertake to reply in detail to ail those point* , but bo
felt ditto.I u|m>ii to notice .me of tlio moat ex inordinary
of Hose objections, which was lounilecl cm the tu t of tlio
CubaM lieirig Catholics. JIo did not deem it necessary in
this live of the world to make any elaborate defence of
the Catholic. Church ; licit, ecu one among the humblest
of lier followers, ho was always rondy (>u any proper oe..i
:.s. t.i ispcStK. on ht 1 lietiuil. It wtcs too lute in the
dayto udvum e tho argument tlmt the Cutliolie Church '
was iiiiiuie.il to freedom ; for tlio prosperity of our cuuutiy
where she has hud u greater or less controlling infill- >
enro, and every buttle tield in wliieh our dug has been '
sustained by Catholics and Protestants lighting side hy
side, tolls n dilferoiit stoiy. It may l>e that the Ou- I
bails are such |ioor ('atln)iies that they arc unfit for
freedom ; hut it is not because of their devotion to that <
church. It h*d alio been said that the Catholic: Church
in this country was opposed to the acquisition of Cuba. So I
far as the religious views of the people of Cuba were con- '
ceriled, those who had the direction of them were in favor '
ui iruiisiuiruig ii 14? IUU uuivcti outica. i nu luuuuit ut
S|?iiu hud not liven such us to secure the respect or utfee- I
tiun of the Catholics ; for In lS.'it she noised tlie revenues 1
of the church, confiscated its projrerty on the island, and (
uiulertook herself the Hihuiulstrutlou of utTuirs. Mr. M.
thought tlmi on sonic accounts we were no nearer to
the iu ijuisitiou of Cuba than wo were twenty live years
ago ; hu we had twice inter fereit directly in preventing ?
Cubans from gaining their independence, and we have
also interfered when our own citizens have gone to assist
them.
Mr. M. remarked that, although Spain would trover
sell Cuba for money, yet sire might l>e ii id need to transfer
that island to the United Mates for commercial considerations.
Our commercial relations with Cubn hail been
grossly mismanaged, or they would have been tire means
of drifting the island into our anus ere this. Mr. M. proceed!
il to h|teak of tire importance of the commerce of
Cuba ; tho pojstlalion of tire island, he believed, had been
under-estimated ; for he thought there were 1,600,000
in dead of one million. lie also stated tire manner in |
which lire slave trade was conducted in Cuba, and ire- |
lieved that il Cuba was annexed to the United Stales
there would he no slave trade there. Tho Captain Clenersl
can prevent tire lataling of iillilnisteis on the island ;
and ire could just its easily prevent tin- landing of Hlaves il
Ire cho.w to do it. lint lire numlror of slaves landed was
not near so largo as had lucn stated, and the mortality
among them had Ihcii exaggerated. With cipial trout lnuiit,
hlaves would live as long and lie uh healthy in
Cuba as tiny arc in Iamisiuna. S|iaiir attributes Iter
tenure of tire island to day entirely to tire institution of
slavery there; tor tire inhabitants are afraid to revolt
lest rite ferocious negus's slroirtd lie turned loose ripon j
them ; and it has been estimated that slavery was oijuiv- :
alerit to rv hundred tlroiisami Spanish soldiers in nniintaining
tint supremacy of tltat country, lint the slavo i
trade hail been disastrous to tire prosperity of tire island, ! ,
I uml tin' people hud nought to prevent it. Ho further re- ,
; marked that lie Isillcvod tlreut Britain had foroed ujion ,
| StMlill tlio altei natjvo of ll.'i i<d?l.i|ur tidal munltr In ; ,
possesion of Cuba as we might, either Irregularly or reg : ^
illnrly, or K|>ain mint liberate every African imported siiiee
their treaty of Iri 17, which went into o|>eratloii in (
1820. He lielleved It waa the deliberate jiolicy of both (
countries that this einiinei|>ation should go on, and that i
the i xpcriiuent which has been tried in Jamaica should
also be tried in Cuba. 11c read several extracts from cor- I (
respondents- between Lord l'ahnerston, Lord HowdeO, j
j and others, in sup|>oit of this opinion.
1 He argued that the inability of Hpain to hold the Island f
| much longer was evident, and that was a good reason j.
i w hy uo should take prompt action so us to prevent Culm ,
from falling into the hands of any other power. Upon t
! tlio conclusion of h a remarks ?
! Mr. DIXoN s|siko in opposition to the hill, alluding ,
I to the fact that Spain had hud almost uninterrupted pos- | (
! session of Cuba lor throe hundred years, and referred to |
j the policy adopted by the earlier statesmen of this coun ,
try to acquiesce in the peaceful possession of Cuba i?y | ,
Spain, lie maintained that we have nothing to apple- 1 j
hand from Cuba while it remains a Spanish dependency,
| and that there was no danger of its {Missing into the ,
[ hands of any other power while we let it alone, lie was
1 surprised at the manner in which the report of the com- .
mittee propo ed to conduct this negotiation. That rel?ut
is based upon the ground that Spain was in a bank- ,
nipt condition and would lie compelled by her necessities I
to part with Cuba : and this language would be read by
tin- Spanish government before any negotiations could be !
instituted, it it. was not there already. Was this ofl'cn- : i
I sive m,.ile of ill 11 nl i iilt lo Mm domestic affaire of Snuin at
' all likely to in luoe a reluctant and proud government to 'j
! put with one of it* moaf o||ori?hwt possesions f 'llio
I publicity which ha<| been given to our desire to acquire t
llilha and to the means l?y which It was proponed to uc- |
j quire it, would lie stiflii lent to dofe.it any such object, j
I w, ro there 110 other reiuion. Ttlr. L>. was almost inclined j 1
; to think there might Iki ulterior and political reasons ' h
for desiring the passage of this lall; for surely gentle- | j
no n of such sagacity us tbofe who reported this hill j |
could never expect the object which they profess to de- 1 1
si'ti to Is; accomplished :n that way. j t
Mr. I), replied to the arguments of Mr. P.kkjaikv in 1
favor of the annexation of (Julvi. That senator had ad- ! t
vocated the hill on the ground that Spain will emancipate ! c
her slaves in Ciilia, and thus impel il our Institutions ;
but., if that was a good reason, why should ivo not nc'piiro f
j Jamaica lor the same reason 1 Why docs not emam ipa |
' tion there equally imperil our Institutions ! Hut we ,
never should use such language to Ureat Britain as we v
! propose to use to Spain, lie also argued at some length f
I to prove that there was no necessity for perpctuutiug \
! slave labor in (Julia for the production of sugar enough |
j to supply tho wants of the ehiliaod world, and contrasted |
: the etl'eota of free labor and slavo lulsir, c
I Mr, It I'll 11 denied that free labor wus regarded as de:
grading in the southern Slates.
Mr. DIXON said it was the legitimate and necessary (
I comequence of slavery to degrade free lalsir, because R
i were the laborer was legally Ismglit and sold, labor must ,
I.....' Ho llti.l I.- 11,, Mil, IT II.is ill.. I......
i pie of tho North would novor consent to tho extension ot ,,
the system us long oh they could legally uud couatitiltiouully
prevent it. (
Mr. HKLL thought this measure and tho kindred one
conferring extraordinary powers on tho 1'roHident were to (
form the theinu for political agitation for the next four |
years, and were to l>e the legitimate successors of those
topics which had caused so uiueh controversy during the |
four years past, 'i'he proposition before the Senate was a ,
| startling one, not only on account of the magnitude of |
the sum of money risked for, but also on account of the
j im|Kirtanee of the interests involved in its consideration, j.
It umif in an authoritative form, having the sanction not t
I only of the President and the Committee ou Fojelgn Ite- j
; lations, but of the dominant |iarty assembled in caucus, j
lie regarded it as a dangerous experiment to intrust the |
President with a sum of money sufficient to control the
army and navy for two years ; this would be a total wlmn- j
doniiM'iit of those conservative principles upon which tliu t
security of our goveinmont rests, And although this :n
|siwer might not lie ahused liy the present Kvecutivo, ^
yet It would'bc setting n prei elielil'wlileh tftigh^^cad'^o |
the most f.itiil cohtet|ticrtr< s.'' ' ' ' "1" t
Ur.' |y thought the ft at) policy of this country was to r
eilllivatu the most amicable relations with Spain, so as to (
he aide to exert a beneficent Intluenee and lead her to ex- t
crcise only a paternal control over the island. This
would have enabled us to thwart the machinations ot t
our adversaries, and U> obtain all the ml vantages of com i
menial relations with ('uha; and then in ease of war,
perhaps witli (lie nmrnt of our neighbor and ally, we >
might iiave been utile to reap the advantage of the mill- i
tnry position of the island, and whenever Spain was
ready to part with it, it would have dropped like ripe (
#ui on.
59. TWO CENTS.
I I ta<
fruit iuto our hand i. Stu b wax the |*>licy of the early
statesmen of this country ; I'ut the times hud greatly tl
changed, ami new ideas of mitional progress, strength, n
ami gloiy sprung up. The passion of acquisition of more L
territory had developed itself, and obtained sn ascendancy ui
over the minds of u large clans of our citizens, ami tin n
oornmeuccd what might he called a Irllibustertng era. It H
wits at this jreriod that the long cherished idea of a south- (
era republic received its most dangerous development,
lie referred to the Oxtend manifesto us calculated to u
arouse u Kf.irit of resistance In Spain ; hut this recent a<
message of the l'resiileiit war calculated to increase that w
spirit of resistance even to the |>oint of Imsnling an on- I
equal war in defence of her possession*, ami I'uha would o
ho at lost surrendered to us only us it blackened and ruin- K
ed waste. rl
Mr. It. considered it n great mistake for the President iv
to make an open demuml lor money to precede negotia M
lions. When I'l.-idciit JcflWson a?ked lor money for a ^
similar purpose, the prnjrosition w.is made to both houseof
Cong ions in confidential message*, nnd it was eonil- ol
urvd by them with closed doors. The most corrupt government
on earth would recoil from a hi its- when It was el
jjK-nly tendered ; and it was infatuntiou to snppoae that
raocess could follow negotiations initiated under such
auspices. lie regarded it as a public calamity that
linnet immediately lifter a great commercial revulsion, w
.itid ivhdti tho treasury was almost bankrupt, such a mens II
lire as this should la* thrust li|s>ii the country to renew p,
sectional strife. Wo were not in a condition now even ol
to accept Cuba as a gift; for unless we could defend her t|
she would lie worse than useless. The lirst blow struck g,
it us, in a war with France or F.ngland, would ho to in
tvrest the island from our possession. Mr. It. concluded si
liia remarks at about 7 o'clock, p. m. se
Mr. YVADK said that there were hut few senators prcs;nt,
and lig thcreforo moved that the Senate adjourn.
Mr. SLIDKLL hoped that motion would not lie pressed.
If, however, there could he a general undeist.Hiding that bi
i linttl vote could lie taken to-morrow on the bill, lie w
ivouhl have no objection to an adjournpieut.
Mr. WADE insisted on his motion ; and the question hi
Lrcing taken, the result was -yens 10, nays 23 as follows

So the Seiiulo refused to adjourn, no quorum voting. ^
Mr. SLIDKLL Imped the senator from Ohio would go

Mr. WADE replied that this was not u measure that ^,

liese was a quorum present.
Mr. SLIDKLL moved that tho Sergeant at-Anns Ire dieeteil
to request the attendance of absent members ;

juiied
Mr. 8LIDKLL Inquired if it might not readily bo sup- o(.
amcd that the President might have some information j.
vhlch should lead him to make this request of Congress.
Mr. KKNNKDV thought lie, as a senator, could not lie
(Xpectod to agree hi the appropriation of so large a saui
ivlthout any d< liuite information, and witli the prospect
f such a hazardous result ; if the President had any such
miirnimiun it was not prudent to my oertire lue r
ivoild he might at least coinmunieate the fajta to the

lie increase of the army and navy, and he would vote I .
iiy a hundred war steamers and an increase of the stand- i ^

Mr. DOOI.rn iiK mid that tigs hill, if acted ii]x>n hy Wi

corned determined to waste the time of this session
list about to expire, he moved to postpone the pending a'r,
dll and all otlier prior orders for the puri>oRa of taking Id

he yeas and nays. J','
Mr. I.ANE would vote against that motion, bocauso of
he granting of homesteads would prevent emigration to Tin
Jrogon.
Mr. JOHNSON, of Tennessee, said ho had long heen
mown as an ardent and persistent advocate of the
lomi-stead hill, and he intended to continue such ; ho
vould speak for that hill and would vote for it until ho
vas thoroughly satisfied that it was either to lie postponed
iually or to become a law, hut he knew that it would J^,
rot ndil to tho strength of that hill, but on the contrary p0
t would weaken it, toplacoitin antagonism to tho pendng
bill, lie therefore appealed to the senator from Wis- J(j
ousiu to withdraw his motion.

or taking up the homestead hill in preference to the

hoiild vote hi continue its consideration and dispose of
