r firiuiT or Tun mess. triinrlitl Opinion of inn Iotnlinw Journals ifpnli Current Topic -Complied Kverr Day lor Hi r-vnin Tclt-icrapli. CUBA. from the IT. Y. WerUl. It is not goniTnliy known in the United States, but it is n lm t, tint Geuoral Prim has JbecD all along t rop:iiv.i to acquiesce in the inder-erulcneo ot Cubit, so tar as tho political power of Spain U cunw rned, whenever tho latter could bo aceumpliNhuJ without iiLklue otlenso to the BooHibilitiosof Spaniards iu the Peninsula. Tlie pl'iu for the purchase of tho island by the Cubruii, wi,th the guarantee of this country, firtit developed in the World, was cordially i-idorsod by General I'rim; and we think that when Conross meets and tho facts of the Forbos-8iclloB mission are mndo public by a resolution of Congress, it will be felt that the general idea which inspired tho propositions, on the part of this country, that followed a tender of our good offices to Spain, and which she accepted with gratitude, ought to have prevailed und borne fruit. Tho plan, as put in shnpe by the World, viis not free from dilllculty. What affair of tlmt magnitude ever was ? We foresaw that the opponents of tho plan in Spain could well enough deny tho existence of any evi dence that the peoplo of the island wished to be lid of Spanish control, or, if independence wus their desire, that they preferred to have Ccspcdos and his party to rule over them and make contracts and pledges in their behalf. The propriety of obtaining tho popular will of Cuba before handing the island about, like a box of sugar, to the highest bidder, or insisting that it be subject to the strongest foreign arm, is evident. Anybddy is equal to tho task of stating and exaggerating that propriety. But how is the popular will to be ascertained ? Who is to vote ? Is it to bo universal suffrage of Spaniards, Creoles, Chi nese, and the six hundred thousand Africans, more or less, bond and free? The recent Republican Convention of New York pledged its hearty support to any action on the part of the Government tending to the final an nexation of Cuba, whenever she shall have achieved her independence and her people desire such action. Who are "her peoplo ?" We appreciated, too, the extreme delicacy and difficulty of the task of inducing Spain to deal, in any form of negotiation, with her own citizens who are in arms against her authority. It was natural that Spain should insist that the Cespedes iusurgonts first disband, and go about peaceful pursuits, on promise of full pardon; and it wos equally natural that Ces pedes refuse. But even that matter this Gov ernment ought to have been able to arrange, although we do not fail to recognize how much the possibility was diminished by want of power in the executive without Congress ional aid. But, after all, wo think the negotiation broke down because of reasons hinted at, rather than explained. There was not unity of action by the persons consti tuting tho Government at Washington. So far as we can learn, th Government itself spoke wisely through IL- Secretary of State, Llr. Fish, inwill official notes on the subject. The instructions to Forbes and Sickles were; we are told, discreet and considerate; but whilo tho responsible minister of our foreign affairs was so sagaciously and . judiciously launching the negotiation, in a manner to commend us and our proffered good offices to Spain, Mr. Sickles and certain members of Grant's Cabiaet, if not Grant himBelf, were pursuing very different methods, or, at least, methods fairly susceptible of an interpretation different from those officially announced. Grant proclaimed, on his travels about tho land, that "we must have free Cuba." At least two, if not three, members of tho Cabinet and one of them kuown to bo in every way nearer to the President than any other member were equally outspoken, and were giving au diences in Washington to representatives of tho Cespodes pretension in Cuba. Just then, and while tho negotiation in Madrid was in the crisis of its fate, came news of Grant's order to seize tho Spanish gunboats, an act which could just as well have been postponed two months. AU this was ex tremely unfortunate for free Cuba. It was caught up, of course, aud quickly transmitted to Spain. Tho enemies in Madrid of the plan proposed were able to say that the Washing ton Government was really in alliance with tho insurgents, and hostile to Spain, and that the purport of our good offices was but a reflex of the demands of Cespedes. Hence tho late expression of public feeling in tho Teuin Bula in respect to us and Cuba. As to Sickles' recent note, wo fancy thero in much exaggeration as to its tone; but enough has been said and done in Madrid, in consequence of what it contained, or was supposed to con tain, to show pretty clearly the condition of the public mind thero as to our interference, or threats of interference, in Cuba. The causo of freo Cuba has earne:st friends in Spain, and it should bo our object tu strengthen them against thoir enemies at v home. It is too late now to stop tho rein forcements which have been ordered. The work of death must, with cool weather, bo resumed. It was sending these reinforce ments tho World hoped to prevent. Spain has a right to a reasonublo time and oppor tunity to reduce her iusurgonts to subjection. . Thirty thousand fresh troops may accomplish the result. But if they do not, aud in one year from now the result be as it is to-day, our hope is that this Government will keep itself in condition of such honest neutrality that when it moves again it may move with better results. PACKEll'S OPINIONS. From'thti A. T. Trxbwir. In tho prevailing uncertainty as to the Democratic principles for tho present cam paign, we believe the faithful in Pennsylvania Lave been in especial perplexity, i'he 1)0. mocracy of Ohio can feel themselves ortho dox if they follow Pendleton aud domaud taxation of the bonds and payment in green backs. Tho Democracy of New York are at liberty to cry for either specie payment with Belmont or repudiation with Tweed, or if ihey prefer, to go for both together, as most of them actually do. Pennsylvania, how ever, has hitherto had no platform; and when one of the interviewers of tho Jlerahl tacklod Juduo Packer, the other day, at tho Bathl.i. liem railroad Btation, the parly must have awaited tho utterances of their candidate with such anxiety as used to fill tho breasts of in. quiring worshippers at tho shrines of Delphi and Dodona. We regret to say that Judira Packer's opinions are not a bit more docide 1 than those of the oracles of old; but they have at least this merit, that they loavo hi:i fol lowers a wide latitude of choice. Questioned about finances, ho "could not nay that ho had any bettor ideas on that subject man anyuoiy r,lne probably not as good," and imiueli- ately proven it oy uenouucmg mu piup'.muuu to fund part of tho debt at a lower rate of interest as repudiation, "because tho Govern ment has no right to issue bonds at a certain I rate, and then make the peTsons who havo I them take others of a less Taluo." As nobody has proposed that tho Government shall do anything of the kind, tho bearing of Mr. Packer's observations are not clear. The funding -schema contemplates no foroed ex change whatever, but merely the sale of con sols to those who may want to buy thorn; and those who don't want to buy them con leave them alono. Cornered at last by the question, "Is the Domocratio party iu favor of repudiating the national debt?" the J ml go uiad the reniavkable reply "Well, this is a pretty serious matter, and Would have to bo considered. I do not know what the Democratic party think about that.'' Tempted with the tariff, ho remarked, "This matter is divided some want froo trade and some high tariff. Tho tariff is a question that can never bo settled satisfac torily to all parties. Freo trade would pro bably hurt some and a high tariff a good many more; so it is a difficult problem to discuss." Asked his opinion about tho eight hour law, ho smiled I Then tho train ar rived, and Judge Tacker "received evident relief from that sourco;" at which wo don't wonder in the least. We recollect nothing in history quite equal to these opinions, except the sontimen ts ex pressed by the placid gontleman whom Mr. Snodgrass encountered in the Peacock Inn at Eatanswill "a man of bland voice who always made it a point to agree with everybody." 'Show mo the man,' observed Mr. Snodgrass, 'who says anything against women, as women, and I boldly declare ho is not a man.' That's a good sound argument,' said the placid man. 'Containing a position which I deny,' interrupted ho of the dirty counte nance. 'And there's certainly a very groat deal of truth in what you observe, too, Sir,' said the placid gentleman." So Judge Packer, running for Governor of one of tho groatest States of the Union and asked for a state ment of his" principles touching the most im portant questions of the campaign, is only clear as to this, that thero is a groat deal to be said on both sides. One of tho vital problems of the day, both in State and Federal politics, is the problem of finance; but Judge Packer says he does not know any thing about finance. What does ho think about repudiation ? Well, ho doosn't know what ho thinks about repudiation; some peoplo like it, but then, you see, some people don't. What does he think about the tariff ? Well, he doesn't know what he thinks about tho tariff; some people want protection, but then, you see, some people want free trade. What does he think about tho labor question? Well, he doesn't know what ho thinks about the labor question; some peoplo take one view of it, but then again some people tako another. Now we hojie tho Pennsylvania Democracy, having sounded their leader and got all they are likely to got out of him, will make up their declaration of faith and go ahead with tho tight. If Judge Packer's opinions are not viduablo as guides to faith they are at leost wonderfully accommodating, and, as Captain Cuttle said of the opinions of Jack Bunsby, "there ain't nothing liko 'om afloat or ashore." THE SPANISH GUNBOATS. From the N. T. Times. The efforts which are being mado to assist tho independence party in Cuba on tho one hand, and to cripple them on the other, are fast producing complications of unusual public interest. On each sido thero are ar rayed many friends, and it certainly is not because money is scarce, or activity is want ing, that formidable expeditions have not been fitted out from our coasts. Tho par tisans of both Bides havo been untiring in their endeavors to further their plans from so convenient a point as the United States. Now, however, the plot thickens every day. It is said that a privateer, which sailed from Halifax, is now off our coast waiting for an opportunity of striking a blow at Spanish commerce. The vessel in question, the Hor net, was purchased for "the Republic of Cuba" at sea, and at sea also was armed and equipped. So runs tho story. By various devices anotner vessel, called tho Alabama, is said to have escaped from this port a week ago, with arms and men for the insurgents It is impossible either to verify or disprove these statements, but wo must admit that in tho case of the Hornet they are so circum stantial in their character as to compel us to accept them. While these movements are reported on be half of the Cubans, we have witnessed the preparation of a strong fleet of gunboats for the Spanish Government. What may bo the intended destination of these boats we do not know; tho Peruvian Minister is of opinion that they are to be used against Peru. Cer tain it is that they were ordered by agents of the Spanish Government, and that it is gene rally surmised they have been built not for ornament, but for use. The representatives of Spain in this country are anxious to nave the flotilla depart as quickly as possible, and they maintain that the United btates tiovern meut has no power to stop it. We cannot areue this point, because it is too clear to ad mit of doubt, that if reasonable cause can be shown by the Peruvian Minister, these vessels can be detained. The course which the ad ministration lias hitherto pursued is a guar antee that no violation of international law will be permitted. The ease of the tunb )uts is, no doubt, one ot great oiluculty to decide, We have not recognized tho insurgents in Cuba as belligerents, and Spain can, if she is ho minded, build vessels hero for the preser vation of peace in her own territories. If it be proved that tho gunboats are designed for Cuba, we Khali havo no riglit to slop tnom But they are detained on complaint of the Peruvian Minister. A power with which we ore at peace represents that a hostile fleet is being fitted out in our ports against ner, What. then, is to be done We believe we bhall be found correct in predicting that tho Government will not allow these Spanish gunboats to leave tho wharves and docks whore thoy now lio until some security is givon with reference to their destination. Tho rumor that the departure of tho vessels will bo connived at is without foundation. A vigilant watch is being kept over them, ami we anticipate that it will be maintained, and the gunboats kept where they are, unless tho Spanish authorities can make out an indisputable case for their re lease. Spain can find no cause of offense in this. We are bound to pay heed to the repre sentations which have been Mi.di on behalf of Peru. The position of our Government is doubtless not one which it would voluntarily have assumed, but having a duty to fulfil, it will perform it without hesitation. If the Ilonat is waiting for any of the Spanish guti boats, sho is likely to be disappoihtod. THE CRISIS TO BE MET. Horace Greeley, in the Boavcr II uliad, says: lhe Republican party was called into exist ence by a gigantic crime tho overthrow in the interest of human slavery of one of the historic landmarks of our country. Slavory and liljerty had, after a great aud perilous struggle, divided the Territories of the Re public; slavery had taken tho lion's share, be cause (it was assumed) the whole of tho Louisiana purchase belonged to her before Jefferson bought it; but now that New Moxico, California, and all botween them, had come to us free, she repudiated her own rule, and insisted that all these should bo opened to her incursions, and made subject to her law. Her champions asserted that a territory became so subject by the naked fact of becoming a part of our national domain; r.nd tho Supremo Court, by its Drod Scot de cision, fteemed to concur in this monstrous dictum. The free North appealed; and Lin coln's first election was a popular reversal of the Court's atrocious doctrine. 'lhe Republican party has ever applied its principles to the facts directly under contem plation. When slavery clutched at tho Terri tories, it resisted on tho sound and just as sumption that slavery was a creature of posi tive law, and that the law must be produced (not inferred) to enable ono man to hold another as his chattel. When slavery rebelled ogainst this, Baying in effect to tho Union, "lour hfo or mino I the Republican party took up tho gago and said, "It shall be yours then ! and, after a desperate struggle, mane good its resolution. The Union is completely and firmly restored, simply becauso slavery is destroyed. "But what shall be done with the tour mil lions of frtedmen ?" became ot once tho iara niount question. It could not be evaded it could not be postponed. Consign those lour millions to political nonentity and tho South w as still essentially rebel, and would so make herself felt in tho national councils Sho would inevitably regard and treat the national authority, tho national debt, as results ot ner overthrow and proofs of her humiliation. Safety conspired with justice in demanding that the millions whom tho Union had freod should be clothed by the Union with all the rights of freemen of citizens. The Civil Rights act and the Reconstruction measures, in so far as they affirmed and seeiued the f reedmen in all the rights of citizenship, were as essential to the overthrow and stamping out of the Rebellion as were Gettysburg, Mis sion Ridge, and Appomattox. Of course, tho party at the North which had ever sympathized with tho Rebels opposed enfranchisement as they had opposed "coer cion and emancipation. Those who agreed with Buchanan and Jerry Black iu thoir premise that tho Union could be peacefully kicked out of a loyal Stato, and could only return as a trespasser, naturally held that everything done in defense ot the Union, from "invading" the "sacred soil" of Vir ginia to giving tho ballot to the freedmon, was usurpation and outrngo. Regarding slavery as thereat constitution of our coun try, they necessarily deprecated every act hostile to slavery as aimed at tho vitals of the Constitution. Who wishes to retrace our weary, rugged way from 1800 to ho continues to regret the "coercion of those who opened fire on Fort Sumter, nud compelled Major Anderson to strike to tnciu the nag of tho Union that waved over that national fortress? Who laments tho burial of slavery under tho ruins of the Rebellion? Let him tako his stand with Packer, lli3 Copporhead Congress man, against Geary, the Union soldier. There he belongs, and thence no logic, no entreaty, can draw him. ho long as hm heart is in tho common gravo of slavery and the Rebellion, his vote is tho natural pevquisito of his fel low mourners, wherool no ono can deprive them. But tho Republican tho man who felt tho defeats of Bull Run, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville as personal calamities whose heart Bank within him as the national flag went down, and soared in exultation when Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, Little Rock, Atlanta, Savannah, Charleston, and Richmond were successively recovered by the armies of the Union how can ho hesitate or bo lukewarm? Does he not believe in "gov ernment of the people, by the people, and for tho people, whether they inhabit tho green hills of Vermont or tho rico swamps and sea islands of Carolina? What right has the Union to exist that is not grounded in the in alienable rights of man? Four years ago, tho people of Connecticut were summoned to vote on the question "Shall bkek men be henceforth voters at our elections on the same terms with whites? Of course, every hater of Republican princi pies and Republican victories wa on hand to vote as his sympathies dictated; whilo some thousands of Republicans faltered and hung back. They guessed we had done enough for the "niggers, without making them voters. Eighteen months thereafter, the Republicans lost tho State for the lack of tho votes of those very "niggers," when they would cer tainly have saved it had not one-tenth of them proved recreant to priuciple and tho other nine-tenths by failing to vote for equal rights. Had the paltry creatures seen tho length of thoir noses much loss their ears they would have realized that in voting against u.e anggeru, iney wero voting inoir enemies into power. And the State, though despe rately contested, was not recovered till Gen. Grant ran for President. The blacks of Pennsylvania are not a for midable body; but they are si long enough to havo saved four districts to the Republicans in tho last election of Representatives in Con gress, and kept Philadelphia out of tho handd of tho riimans wno, oy irauuuiouc voting, siolo her chief offices last October. They ore f-aid to bo ignorant; but tho most be uighted among them can tell a sham Demo crat from a real cnanipion oi government oy the whole people, and that is more discern incut than tens of thousands manifest who call themselves white. There is not a valid reason for denying them tho right of suffrage which would not exclude a largo proportion of the whites also from the ballot-box, aud ren der power no longer the right of tho many but the privilege of tho few. Republicans of Pennsylvania, men of prin ciple and character, if the blacks living peace fully and honestly among you ought not to be clothed with the right of suffrage, then vour brothers and sons, whose nones wmieu Grant's bloodv track through tho Wilderness, and who went down like grass before tho Rebel lifle-nits at Coal Harbor and tne en trenchments around Petersburg, died as the fool dieth. Your Stato has fairly ratified the fifteenth amendment. Tho election ot Packer will be hailed "by every unchanged Rebel and Northern sympathizer wuu ite hellion as a reversal of that ratification as a decision that none but whites should ever vote. If vou know why vou are Republicans, and what your principles mean, put forth your mightiest exertions now and till the close of tho polls for Geary and tho whole Republi- can ticket! nniMT miyixj of Firm.
