RICHMOND, VA.I YOdnradny .Horning, October 13, ISSB. ~~ CUBA. The infatuated government of this Island eeems determined to rush upon its fate. It seems to have stripped oil the mask entirely, and to have placed itself in an attitude of open hostility to the United States. The ti r st af front offered to Captain Porter was bad etu ugh; it certainly demanded enquiry at the hands of our government. The last is far worse. It in volves an insult, which our government cannot possibly avoid enquiring into. Nor do we see how it can be explained, or, in any degree, softened. It was as plain and palpable, as it was harsh and tyrannical. It admits ot no ex cuse, and no exteuuation. There was a large party in this country op posed to the annexation of Cuba. Spain, by her own acts, is diminishing the number of such every day. In a very little time, if these acts continue, they will not outnumber a corporal s guard. The people begin to see, that Spain is forcing us, whether we will or not, into an nexation. We cannot atlord, in time of dead peace, to be cut ufi from all commercial inter course with Cuba—it is better to have war at once, and then we shall know how we stand- We think we can see, that the obstinate deter mination of the Spanish Government, to contin ue the violation of existing treaties, will never be abated, until we shall have lowered their pride by forje of arms. In five years, from this date, Cuba will be in the possession of this re public. Mark that' The Spaniards, them selves. will fcroe us to take it, conceited block heads that they ate, who cannot see the gulf they are rushing into. P. S. The above was written on Monday, for the issue of yesterday. It was crowded out, and since yesterday, more news lies ar rived, having a bearing upon this subject. We get it from the New York Herald, arid the reader must take it for what it is worth. From that paper we learn that ihe sloop of war Cyne has left the port of New York fur Havana, and that the steamer Mississippi is to follow immediately, tfce Herald says, es soon as she gets her complement of men. but it is well known that she has men enough. Some ♦hing else must detain her. The intelligence has created a profound sensation on the mind of Mr. Webster, who is still at Marshfield. We trust that the government will not let slip this opportunity to drive the Spaniards away from the green island they have been wasting, like locusts, for three centuries. They Live ample cause for war, and our voice is for war. Nothing less than the expulsion o!" there miserable wretches, whose career in the New World has been betrayed by the streams of human gore they have left behind, from the time ofCortez and Pizarro, to the present mo ment, should be the object of the government. What is the use of making treaties with them? They take the first opportunity to break them. What is the use ofdem-.nding an explanation? You cannot get at the truth. The\ equivo cate, lie. or beg pardon, wi;h the determina tion to do the same thing over 01. :he first con venient opportunity. The only argument thev understand is the argument of shot and shells ! The only appeal that can make them lister;, is an appeal to the sword. They are three hun dred years behind the times. They are no fui ther advanced than they were when Columbus discovered America. Their civilization re tains much of the barbaric, and is alto-getb er unsuited to the latitude of America. We will say nothing of the horrible crimes which the atrocious government daily commits. We are not JMibusfers, and we are opposed to filli buster movements in every shape. But it is t : me for the United States to take possession of the Promised Land. The Spaniards have been keeping it in trust for us. It is time to relieve them of their burthen, and to send them back home. Let there be no fear of England ; she is not going to interfere, provided it be an affair between governments. She only threat ens theJit/iOusters. Besides, she is impressed with the conviction that we are to have Cuba, and though she may talk, she will not act. — Without the aid of England, we need fear nothing Iroin France. Take her from the con tinent of Euiope, and we are doubly a match for France. We have ample cause of war, and now is the time to take Cuba, in fair legitimate warfare. We trust the Cabinet will not hesi tate. The whole country is roused, and they will be backed by millions upon millions even in the Northern States. We have already was ted too much time in talking. The vain-glo rious Spaniard thinks we are afraid of him.— Let us undeceive him, and drive him back to the Peninsula. Our strength is so great, that we may safely defy the whole world to prevent us from taking Cuba, if we wish it. J he California steam line which touches at Havana, consists of ten large steamers, which could und would be converted "lto war-steamers; we say trould, because we learn from the Herald, that Mr. George Law, \he principal proprietor, gave orders to Capt'. Portjr to retain Purser Smith, at all hazards, and t) call, with the mails and passengers, ev ery time he passed Havana. If they ordeied him out, very well. These vessels can cairy 5000 troops euch, so that the whole ten would carry out 50,000 troops—(such are the specu lations oi the Herald, and they seem well founded.) Law has also on hand one hundred and forty thousand muskets, and ammu nition for a month's campaign in Cuba.— *Ihe Herald says that there are 100,000 men ready to join in the invasion. If the govern ment take it in hand, we have no doubt there are. liut we have already seen that private expeditions, while the two countries are at peace, do not go down with the law loving American people. A declaration of war. bv the war-making power, changes the aspect of the affair altogether. THE EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. The news by the Franklin is of a highly in teresting character, so far us France, thegreat centre of interest at this moment, is concerned. Thers can be no doubt that Louis Napoleon will be proclaimed Emperor, and just as little, tfatt an immense majority of the French people will not only acquieice, but even hail the event with joy. The anarchy produced by socialism' red republicanism, Fourrierism, and a thou sand other iamg, all working separately, and each equally fatal to society, has brought about a slate ofthings in France so deplorable, that the French people are willing to take shel ter under the wing of Louis Naploeon, though a despotism be the consequence. It is these men of urns who are the most deadly foes to liberty in France. Louis Napoleon is not half so much to blame as they. He merely takes advantage of the breach they hare made, to mount to the assault and carry the garrison by siorm. Besides, no doubt, he sees that the strong hand, and the strong hand alone, can keep the nation in the path which is, to them, the path of safety and interest. We are far from being one of those who in dulge in the Utopian scheme, of forcing men to be free, whether they wish it or not. We confess that, with ail our veneration for his virtues, we have ever looked upon the deed of the younger Brutus, a* the act ot a very nar row-minded and shallow man. A little reflec tion —-onKl have laught him, that the Romans wanted a master, and were determined to have one. lie might have known, too, that Julius Caesar was the best master tliey could get, for his great qualities and mighty genius could not have been unknown to Brutus. So it is, now, with France. She is determined to have a master, or any thing else, rather than anar chy, and Louis Napoleon is, by far, the be3t choice she can make. Intense excitem it prevails in England, with regard to the Lobos Islands question. REVISION OF THE BIBLE. The revision of the bible, has been a sub ject of great discussion throughout the reli gious world, for a long tune, the American Union, a society composed of a branch of the Baptist Church, taking the lead. The present edition of the Bible was com pleted when the language wr.s not so far ad vanced as it is at present. It is alleged, more over, by competent scholars, that it is badly translated. Much of it appears to have been through the indolence, probably of the transla tors, copied literally Irotn the vulgate. It would seem, therefore, that there was a neces sity for a translation to be made by the general concurrence of all the Protestant Churches, in this country and England It is said, how ever, that the great object of the American Bible Union, is to substitute "immerse" for "baptize" wherever the word "baptizo" occurs in the original. We do not choose to enquiie whether "baptizo" means immerse and nothing else. But if this new translation is made not for the benefit of religion, but to advuuce the cause of sectarianism, we oppose it decidedly. There many obscuriiies in the old bible, it is true, and it is possible, that by ij careful study and rendition of the original Hebrew they may be cleared up; but it is easy enough to understand every bit of it, that is necessary to the salvation of man, and the difficulties mentioned, are of so liitle account, that though they were rendered us clear as noon day, it could not counterbalance one half !he evils which sectarianism always inflicts upon reli gton. Better stick to the old bible —the book that w : have all been accustomed to view with reverential awe, from out childhood. There is a great deal more in it (easily understood) than we can ever act up to. Besides, we confess that to us, the old English employed in a work of so much solemnity, makes a deeper impres" sion on us- then would our modern vernacular. If' there are blunders, there are none material —none that can affect salvation. Let us stick to the old book; the book which made How ard, Reynolds and Antony Benezett what they were, which taught them to love God, and do everything in His name. Their examples prove that there is enough between the leaves of the old book to save us all if we will only hearken lo its teachings. GYMNASTICS. We culled attention, the other day, to the proposal of Messrs. Hudson and Ottignon, to establish a Gymnasium in this city, provided the names of 100 subscribers could be pro cuied. We expressed, also, ottr belief, that this might be easily done. The number of young men in this country who, by leading sedentary lives, taking no exercise, and bending over their books or their desks all day, contract diseases, which hurry them to an untimely grave, is deplorably large. They take no exercise—their digestion fails— their spirits sink —they become moody and despond nt —a slight cough, succeeded, pro bably, by a hemorrhage from the lungs, warns them of their danger—they then, for the first time, after it is too late, become alarmed, and seeking relief from that most deadly of all dis eases, consumption, in more Southern cli mates, they die away from their homes, their kindred, and their friends. Many, very many, fatal catastrophes, like that we have described, might have been avoid ed, had the victim taken time by the lorelock. and subjected his body to the degree <bf exer cise, which was necessary to keep it in a heal thy condition. Arid thai exercise should not be merely walking or riding. It should be something which expands the chest—which gives the lungs room to play—which sends the blood, in a current, from the gieat centre of the human system, the heart, throughout its ex tremities. Except hard labur in the field, which is not within the icach of most of our students and book-keepers, there is liothiug so fit fjrthis purpose, as the exercises of the gym nasium. So well did Mr. Jiff r :o n, a student all his life, understand this fact, that he at tached a gymnasium to ihe University of Vii ginia, considering it of as much importance as the library or the lecture-room ; lor he said, what profit is it to a man that he should have all the knowledge in the world, if he have no health. Unfortunately, we believe, the de sign ol Mr. Jefferson was never carried out. But, indeed, Mr. Jeffeison was not singular in this opinion. All men, who have been stu dents, all clerks, all book-keepers, every bodv, whose life is sedentary, feels the force of it. it is to such as these, to the students, clerke and book-keepers, of the city, that we panic' larly address ourselves un this occasion. We advise them, by all means, to take advantage of the present opportunity. It may be the means of prolonging their lives, of making them sleep well at night, rise as gay as the lurk in the morning, go to breakfast with the appetite of u ploughmen, and to work with the alacrity of a m»n whose task in no burthen to him. These effects gymnastic exercises have rarely fuiletl to produce. They are the best cure for dysp.'psia and liver complaints ; and the most certain preventive of consumption ev er yet discovered. As for the gentlemen who propose to open this establishment, they are well known here, and ure very popular. Everybody knows that if they undertake to do a thing, they will do it. If they undertake to improve a man's health or strength by means of the gymnasium, it will be done. OUR RAZORS. The Lynchburg Express wishes to know the price of our razors. We will tell him not only that, but all about them. They were made at Sheffield, (not Birming ham, as we supposed.) The manufacturers were Joseph Rodgers &. Son, gentlemen who have no rivul in »hcTir line, and whose fame is as wide-spread, as that of the late Duke o*'' Wellington. Mr- Ginter, who made us a pre sent of them, had them manufactured espe cially for our use, taking care to signify as much, by having our name put upon them. The cost is reckoned, not in dollars and cents, but in pounds, shillings and pence. It stands, on Mr. G.'s books, £2 -Is. «>^d. So much for the razors. They were a noble present, worthy of tlie known liberality of the donor, and (if mod esty did not forbid us) we should say, of the astonishing merits of the recipient! We doubt whether there is such another pair in the whole State of Virginia. As for the cap, it is of the finest silk velve., and the gold is of the purest. NICARAGUA. We are glad to see that the lute treaty be tween Mr. Webster. Mr. Crampton, and denor Molina, meets with tha general disapprobation of the press. Everybody applauds Nicaragua for refusing to ratify it. Why Mr. Crampton was culled in, in un alTuir between this Govern ment and Nicaragua, we have yet to learn — Nicaragua refuses to acknowledge the protec torate of Great Britain over the Musquito country, and she is right. A more bare-faced, imoudent imposture was never attempted.— Gieat Britain, we had thought, had given it up by the Clayton and Bulwer treaty. But it seems she has renewed it, and it is probable, will go to war with Nicaragua, sooner than re sign it. We hope this Government will remem ber, and put in practise, the Monroe doctrine, under such circumstances. The 'J'ehuontepec Route. Tiiis question stands just where it did. INIr. Letcher (recalled at his own request) and Judge Conklin (just appointed Minister to Mexico) are to meet in Washington this week, to discuss matters connected with the route with the Executive. We trust the rights of the company will be enforced, at the point of the sword, if necessary. There never was a fairer claim, or a important.question in volved.
