If M VJowod superficially, this state of feclln?

?H 'if thing astonishing. Hitherto tho American

ty ' jf Etanco our mcrjhants and our adventurous
r j ' young men, anlmatitl b a dmlro for the
If t rpread of republicanism, have furnished
' ' material or personal aid to such colonlts.
? Di-eldcs, there Is no instance in which such a
't ( colony has had so in my claims upon our
j.) I j hindncM as Cuba, 'i'horo U no lnstanco in
I'M which a people havo had such reason to re-

f,t) ; denco, and at the same time fighting for tho
liK ; abolition of slavery and tho slavo trade, aud
for tha endowment of all her citlrens with
equal political right. And yet this horolc,
this admirable, this unptveodento 1 revolu-
m tion is regarJod by tbo Republican party,
$V Itself Utely the mKit ard- nt champion of
(Mi.' , freedom In tho world, with In.lUTjrcncu, with
Vti ; ecorn, and even with hostility.
C.S'tj 1 J I'"' feLC'. we HaV I" astoiiishing, but it Is
jt Sh; : not dithcult to uudcrstunJ ; and tbo uxplana-
n ! tion Is one which ought to fill every thought
' 1a American with anxiety and alarm. The
(jty ' ruasun of it all Is that the Katloual Admin-
if ' Istration regards Cuba with Indifference and
j'.K I w'tl1 t"nln',J' all(l the Republican party con-
'in' 1 ' lalna so much servility, so little iuloicn-
fyt deuce, so l.ttlo vital Americanism, that It
-ijt.1, takes not only its priiclplrfl but even its
)Wr Binotions from tlil.t Administration, 'and in-
M Uulges in no thoughts and no Ideas which
'Jl1; ' liavo not flrtt passed through tho mind of
fij' lbs l'rwldant and Becrelary of State at
Jjlji I Watiblngton. When at the Ix'giuning of
L'Hft his career IVesldont QltAST proftsst'd to be
$l fr'er.dly to Cuba, and when that noblo-heartud
' utan John A, R.vwi.i.vs lent to his councils
. jW eome of his own inspiration, tho Republican
; I ' Tarty was full of hopo and sympathy for tho
j Cubans. It was against slavery lu the
jf- Island ; tt was ajaluit the slave trado ; It
.y was hi favor of freedom and Indepcndouco,
lint after Rawi.Is died, Hamiiton Fisti,
Inlluenccd by SpanlHh gold paid to bin sou-
'j ja law, succeeded in turning tbe AduiliiiHtrtv-
J '
Hon against Cuba. President QUANT having
no lduns of his own upon that subject, and
the Republican party not daring to think or
speak Independently, the President adopted
the present policy, and tho Republicans allow
him to adhere to It. (Jlliorwin, they thought,
the party would bo endangered ; nnd a party Is
of more consequence in tho eyes of partisans
than anything elso whatever.
Mcnttwhllo tho Cubans havo fought on
bravely In tho fnco of their enemies In the
Island and tltflr enemies In the United
Stales. During most of tho tlmo they have
not had moro than five thousaud inukots to
arm their soldiers with; and while our
manufacturers have constantly sent tbe moat
Improved arms and ammunition to the, Span
lards at Havana, Mr. PiBit has solzcxl nnd
f mbargood every vcbscI which he thought
likely to tako guns or powder lo the Cubans.
Nevertheless, they havo constantly Increased
their strength by taking guns from tho
Spaniards, and now tbey can bring twenty
thousand well-armed men Into tho field. Tho
Spanish Government, unable to ruiuforco Its
army In Cuba, Is at last not ouly ready but
anxious to treat with tho Insurgents, whose
well-grounded confidence In thonpproachlng
triumph of their cause Is sitchtbat they may
well decline to entertain any other terms
from the enemy except the proposal of un
conditional snrronder. England, moro faith,
ful to the policy of emancipation and free
dom than this boasted Republic, Is now their
friend; and It Is lafo to say that tbctr
independence will very probably bo con.
duviVfly established before a new President
of the United States Is elected. Is It too mnrh
to liopfl that the Republican party may then
bo able to treat tholr Robin devotion and per

Tho fact that onr eminent Spanish Scere
Inry of State resigned his oilier on Saturday,
May 27, and that the resignation was accept
ed on Monday, May 29, to take effect at some
future day, was published in TUB 5TN of
Friday, Jnne 2, three weeks ago, At that
time an attempt was mado to contradict this
rtntemcnt, nnd both Presldeut Uiiamt and
Mr. Plflt himself wero reported as having
denied Its accuracy. It wns true, ncvertho
ho, and thet vidence of tho fact Is gradually
coming to tho public knowledge. For In
stance, tho Tril'Mf yesterday contained the
following rrjxirt tn-m Washington;

had been better lnlonnt-d, that at the Cabinet

A general council of the nations occupying
the Indian Territory assembled at Okmutjfce on
tbe Ktb inst. to consider the adoption of the
new Constitution under which it Is proposed to
eonsoiidste the sfTeral tribes in one iroTrmfnent.
The population of the Indian Territory is not far
from G0,000, including Cherokecs, Choctaws, and
other tribes who have made more or less progress
In civilization. The lands comprised In thin Ter
ritory are among the finest mid most fertile la
tlie I'uited State, and are said to be capable of
supporting millions of people. They have been
ectiod In peiP:,uilI to the Indians by frosty with
the United Slates Oovernmenij but ''"Q is .
powerful Influence at work, in Washington and
elstwheti), to deprive the tribes of a portion of
their lands. It is bsllercd by friends of the In
dians that a ratification of the proposed Constitu
tion, by plying strength and solidity to their po
litical and social institutions, will render them
more secure In tho enjoyment of their right', and
enable them to present a more cflVctivo rcisl anco
to the encroachments of tho who arc slewing
their valuable posieanioui with covetous eyes.
There is no doubt that determined ell irts will be
made by whiles to acquire a Urge share of tbo
Indian Territory, under the plei that it It larger
than its owners have any practical n for. Pos
sibly the best thing that could -be dene for tbe
lrdianj would be to put n portion of their super
fluous lands uj on the market, applying the pro
ceeds to their benefit ; but the great uhjtction to
this is the probability, nmuunting altno't to a
certainty, that any attempt to rflect such u
transaction would testilt in fraud and spoliation.
The Troy Time says that the Hon. JOHN
lloKKlsstr is distressed by the publicity attained
by his otuLlishraent In Saratoga, and that he
specially requesta that newspaper men will fur
bear from all uotice of his place other than they
would make c fatty other gentleman's private
residence. The request I' quite reasonable, and
doubtless will be acceded to. The same paper
says that no curiosity-seekers of either sex will
be permitted to visit Mr. Moaussn's rooms this
season ; and that if clergymen and others dealre
tn see his bouse, the clergymen and other must
come in budncss hours prepared to do business
In a buincss-like way. This I' also reasonable,
although it is customary for menagerie proprie
tor to extend the courtesy of complimcnlary
ticket to clergymen, so that their example may
enconraga a taate for zoological investigations
among their parishioners.
While many SpanUh papers of Madrid aro
openly advocating tho cenon of Cub.t to the
CubjLS, with or without ptircha, the volun
teers of the island are endeavoring in their
various cafines to raise tbe sum of fbOO.OOO, on
remission of which to Spain they fondly expect
rtinfui cement of 20,000 men to the regular
army. Tbe money may or may not be raised,
and if raised tbe anticipated reinforcements may
or moy not reach Cuba. One thing is ch-ar,
uamcly, that the galiaut volunteers prefer to pay
others to do the fighting rather than du it them
selves. There are over alxty thousand of thern
to-day in the large cities of tho ialaud, the num
ber of one hundred thousand originally organ
ised having been much diminished by the enor
mous exodus to Spain ; and yet VitakiiDi waa
unable either by bribes or threats to induce two
thousand to accompany him even to the city of
Tucrto Principe.
According to trustworthy information, there
are at present about thirty-three thousand regu
lar Spanish troops in Cuba, located as follows :
111 Havana, Matanzas, Cardeuas, and Sagun, 8, TOO
men; In the Vuclta Abajo, 00; on the uorlh
coast, westtiaid of Havana, including Guaunjny,
Martel, and Uahia Honda. 1,200; in the Cinco
Y1II-3 districts, including Moron, Villa Clarn,
Santo Ksplritu, ltcmcdio, and Trinidad, 8,000;
scattered over Caraaguey, from Nucvitas to
Santa Cruz, and northwestward to the eele
bruted trocha militar, 10.0C0; and a like num
ber in Cue Kastern District, from I.aa Tunis
to Cape Msiai.
A late number of La Fpoca, a (iorernment
paper of Madlid, states that the total reinforce
ments sent to Cuba sines tho outbreak of the
revolution sum up 9,313 men of all branches of
the services, which number, added to tbo 13,000
regulars on the island on Oct, 10, 16G8, proves a
loss of nearly 33,000 men ; aud this loss tallies curi
ously with statistics carefully compiled by in
telligent people, and In which the loss of the
Spanish unity is estimated at thirty-live men per
It must bs bonis in mind that of the 33,000
Spanish regulars now In Cuba, fully twenty per
cent, are invalided, and that tbo patriots couut
to-day not less thau 20,000 well-armed men.
By the bankruptcy of the Alabama and
Chattanooga Railroad Company, some two thou
