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
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
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
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,
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
"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
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
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

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
