Extensive Movements by thii War De? partment May Signify Such a Step. iBy Telegraph.) WASHINGTON. June 14.?Without reference to the exact hour ai which the United Stales army left Florida for Cuba, it may be safely said that before the end of the week General Shatter will have landed with hi.s l?.000 United States troops on Cuban soil ami that the investment of Santiago by land w ill have begun. There was some con? fusion In the official mind here today on the time of departure of the trans? ports, though assurance was given thai they had all gotten away. The confu? sion on this point is easily accounted for by persons who know anything of the difficulties of moving simultaneous? ly a numerous ll.-et composed of vessels of all sizes and classes. No less than three times, beginning Sunday, was a definite hour selected for the start and the War Department so notified. Yet m each case some untold obstacle was encountered that required notification lo the department that a postpone? ment had been forced. Sailors say such lelays are inevitable and that rarely does a licet get off by first intention. However, tlie department olllclals -tilled this afternoon that they believ? ed the very last of me transports bad it last started for Cuba. After all Hie delay or a day or two in the start Is calculated not to make any material ? inference in the plans and the only per? sons who will sulTer from It will be Sampson's marines, camped on the tropical bay of Guantanamo and obliged to maintain tin- greatest vigi? lance in repelling the bushwhacking Spanish Irregulars who swarm In the thickets. This foe gives no trouble dur? ing the daytime owing lo the presence of the Marblehend within easy range, but at night when the warship is un? able to disinguisb their own men from the enemy the lot of the marines is a very exciting one. Having slatted the Santiago expedi? tion the War Department has now con ?entrated all Its energies on the prepa? ration of the force to be sein to Porto Rico. Active movements in that line nave been made on a scale so extensive is to lead to the supposition in some quarters that the attack is to be mail. direct upon Havana, but if this is so there Is no open Indication of II. The volunteers collected at Chattanoogo, (2,011(1 in number, are reaching a degree of excellence under the magnificent management of General Brooke that would warrant the government In or? dering them immediately Into active service, but. unfortunately, there Is still considerable lack of equipment chat will not permit of this. General Merrill has brought the sec? ond installment of bis force Into read? iness and it sails for Manila tomorrow. It is believed that the advance guard, the three transports which followed the Charleston to Honolulu, met the cruiser there and sailed In her company for the Philippines about the 12th of this month. In this case it Is reasonable to expect them to urrive at Manila within x week.

An un expected complication has arisen as to the right of Admiral Sampson at San? tiago and Admiral Dewey at Manila to use the cables which each lias secured with a view to bringing them Into di elegraphic communication with thfa authorities here. It is understood ?ials here that Admiral Dewey the shore end of the cable lead m Manila to Hong Kong some time ago. and buoyed it with a view to (ending dispatches. The same is un lerslood to exist at Santiago, where \dniiral Sampson has buoyed the shore ?nd of Hie cable with a view to r.-palr ug and using it. But no messages have neon sent anil the question has arisen is to whether it is allowable under the rules of neutrality for the French and British companies owning these biles lo permit them to be used for strictly military purposes. Tlie companies con irol the points of exit and are able to refuse to pass dispaleh.es along, so that he holding of the shore ends by Admir? als Dewey and Sampson does not per? mit them to carry on communication .?xcept through the assent of the com? panies. These are private concerns, hut thev are bound to observe the neu i.rnlity of their respective governments. There is some anxiety, therefore, as to the course ..f the operations of t French company at Hayii when th receive private messages from Admiral samps.m. Should they refuse to handle them over neutral lines, touching neu trnl territory, an international question might arise."

War, except !n self defense, and as a last alternative, he held in letestatlon as the enemy both of clvil tlon and liberty. He may not have sufficiently considered that the power to inflict misery upon other nations Is itill the best guaranty of their respect, md that there are duties devolving upon eai li member of the great society of nations which it has no right to neg? lect, and which may involve at any time a hostile summons. He held in abhorrence large standing irmles and powerful navies, and a na? tion unprovided with these will some? times find itself subjected to humilia? tion either by submitting to injury from a conscience of unreadiness to make a good defiance, or by being sud? denly overwhelmed by an inferior hos? tile force. But are nations unprepar? ed for war the only ones likely to be subjected to humiliations? Was Eng? land ever humiliated, or France or (.erinany?

For the theoretical doctrines which supported the claims of nullification and secession. Mr. Jefferson must in? deed be held largely responsible: but this was never any essential part of his philosophy of free government, if indeed it be consistent with it. It oncerned only the Interpretation and effect of tlie particular constitutional instrument by which the colonies united themselves together. The main ques? tion was not whether under a federal rovernment formed to secure the ends which ours had in view, it would be wise to delegate to the general govern? ment the right to determine the ex ent of its own powers, but whether n point of fact such a delegation was contained in our own constitution. I nay hazard the opinion if the question iaii been made, not in 1S30. but in 7S3 immediately after the adoption of Ihe Constitution, whether the Union as formed by that instrument could law? fully tr.-at the secession of a state as i rebellion and suppress it bv force, '"ew of . those who had participated in framing that instrument would have answered in the affirmative. Nor has that question been in any nanner settled by the result of that civil strife which has effected such a Profound revolution In the political -ind social world of America.
