Mnt eirtDoe of atato of war between the kingdom of (Spain nai I be colour of Ouba, and waged on the part of Duba to ctaJjlih iU lndnpandenun. ana that the Unltml htataa will obaerre atriut nnntn.lit, botween the belli gerent part ie, is their duty under the law of Dationa. Mr. Sherman said he desired to cull the atten tion of the Committee on Foreign - Relations to the fact that the people of tho country would not much longer tolerate the cold indifference of this Government towards Cuban affairs. , It was bnt natural that a etruggle like that now pro gressing so near our own border should touch the national heart. He trusted the Committee on Foreign Relations would tke fiomo action with a view to secunii fair play on our own Snrt between Cuba and Spain. Ills resolution id not propose to recognize Cuban indepen dence, but simply a condition of uctual warfare with a view to fair play hereafter. Mr. Pomeroy snggeated that the resolution should be amended to declare that the Cubans were not only lighting for independence which was due, but for freedom also. Mr. Sumner said the Committee on Foreign Relations had somewhat considered the sub ject, but that the facts before them as to fie actual condition of . Cuban affairs were not ofll cial and did not warrant definite action. : -- Mr. Sherman remarKed that the fact that Spain had built thirty gunboats in our ports to put down what was said to be a little rebel lion, was a sufficient warrant for his resolution. A question of order by Mr. Davis, that in its present state the resolution was not debatable, being allirmed by the Chair, tho resolution was referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. On motion ot Mr. Ramsey, the bill to abolish the franking privilege was then takei up. Mr. Drake renewed his amendment to con tinue the existing provisions of the law In favor of publishers of newspapers and periodicals, lie said the attempt was made by the present bill to repeal the provisions of the law extending to the poor man the much-needed facilities for ceneral information afforded by the cheap newspaper, lie believed that some amendment la tho matter of newspaper circulation was "absolutely demanded. The bill aimed to repeal wholesome laws without sufficient pretext, and he thontrht it had been made as odlofJs as poeaiblo in order to secure its rejection by- the J Senate. "'." ' - , Under the bill in its preecnt shape a man living in the Rocky Mountains could have a New York dally sent to him for the. same cost that ho would pay for a newspaper published in the county in which he livod. This would operate to the benefit of the great dailies, while break tag down the country papers, whereas tho true policy was to encourage the circulation ot the local press. . Mr. Sherman renewed hi 8 amendment to allow the free circulation of county papers. He preferred this proposition to that submitted by Mr. Drake, Iselieving the large newspapers could afford to pay postage upon their exchanges, while the county newspapers ought to have free circulation within the county limits, in order to compete with the large dailies. . . Mr. Con Wing said the bill would not take effect nntiWuly 1; and favored Its immediate passage, arid the enactment in a Beparato form f.n h ftrirTtionnl leslslauon on the subject as r ight bo necessary; He said he admitted the injustice of-burdening a smull country paper with ihn nifrhe noetaee for which a dally issue travelled from one end of the continent to the other. - Ilonae. 1 PoHtlnna were Drescnted as follows: 1. .... ... .1 :!-..

Tho 3f arhnaetta License Law. i Bostok, Feb. 11. A majority of the com mittee of the House on intoxicating liquors have submitted a report which contains the following features: , I It is a license law, suppressing public bars and tippling houses, and allowing liaensed inn 'papers and common vlctuallereto sell to their gucste, to . be drank on the - premises, and licenced ' liquor dealers, grocers, . apothecaries and drugxtats, brewers and victuallers, to sell, not to be drank on the premises. .The license fee is fixed at $100 to $1000, and the bill, in the opinion of a majority of tho committee, Is so guarded as to make it, if it shall be enacted, an effective law for the regulation and control of tho liquor traffic.
