Entered at the Postoffice Alexandria. Virgin? ia, as socond-clnss mutter.] THE BULKING CUBANS. A dispatch from Santiago de Cuba say-: A fact which is impressed more and more every day upon the Ameri? can, officers and men is in the increa lini: s rained rela'ioos between the Aineri cacs and General Gatcia's Cuban sol? diers. Indeed, the situation has now reached a point when there is practi? cally no communication at all between he two armies, and their rela'ious bor? der ou those of hostility rather than he relations which one would suppose *voul'i exist between ailies. As soon e- General Soafter announc? ed his decision uot to let the Cuban forces enter the city of Samiago de Cuba deep mutterioge were heard irtoug General Gurcia's men. It wa vdeot the Cubans were greatly disap? pointed at the step taken by the Atner lean commander, lor they had conti-1 ? etilly counted upon having Santiago urued over to lootaud plunder as thej had in succession sacked Ba:quir;. Si honey and El laney. Cons* quentlj : e r disappointment was kteu when tui-y ascertained that th-.y were uot it 11- permitted lo take possession oi ho city upon General Toral's surten Oa Friday last Castillo, a brother of Gt-ueral Demetrius Castillo, went to General Sbaftur's heuquaners i t order .i ascertain the cause of this, to the Cu baris, inexplicable resolution. 1 Why is S?;;ti;jf> io remain iu the bands of our enetnie.-?'' he asked. " The Spauiards are not our enemies," r--plied General Shafter. "We are lighting the soldiers of Spain, but we have no desire to despoil her citizens. No Cuban will he allow id to enter the citv nor will any Amer? ican soldier. Tne government of the city is a mutier for the people to decide. When the American array leaves it I presume it will be turned over to you, nut not until then." Castillo, who came direct from Gen. Qarcia's camp, did not attempt lo con? ceal his chagrin. The Cohan soldiers now fully realize j that there is a rising sentiment against tbem in the American army. They hear nothing but words ot scorn from our men as they pass onward, lugging their bacon and hardtack into the woods. Even our officers no longei conceal their disgust for their pl ies, mid it m understood that the warm friendship displayed toward them at tir.-t has low turned into con tempt, for the Cubans have neither It ught nor worked. The correspondent ( f the Associated Press who sends this dispatch saw a group of Cubans refuse |:0 tit blank to aid in building roads, ami, during the two days' heavy fight ?ng, while they were loitering ia tbi r.-nr, our surgeons sought in vain to secure assistance from them, even to cu' poles for improvised litters for cur wounded. Hundreds of such instances are be? ing t.?ld around the camp tires uulil the name of Cuban is usually wreathed with camp profanity, and very rarely is a kind worti spoken of them. In fact, in Borne quarters there is a di-posiiion lo prophesy an early collision between our men and the Cubans. General Shafter Saturday morning sent an invitation to General Garcia to attend the ceremony of raising the American Hag over Santiago de Cuba: hut the Cuban General showed his re? sentment by Bending a reply which amply continue d the course which be and his ragged, ignorant soldiers have followed during the weeks of bard lightitig and campaigning which have resulted iu the fall of Santiago. He declined the invitation, said he hatod the Spaniards and added that he did not want to be where any of them were. Since that time the Cubaus have remained in their camp, eating American rations, and our troops have had no communication with tbem. A dispatch from Washington says there is apprehension that the assump? tion by the United States government of ihe control of alluirs at Santiago may lead to trouble with the Cubans. A few days before the surrender of the city General Garcia sent a committee to General Shatter informing him that that the Cubans had selected a Cuban named Castillo for Governor of the city. It is plain, however, lrom the reading of the President's order to Shafter that it would be a long time be? fore this Cuban officer is allowed to ex? ercise the functions of Governor, and it is believed it is the President's purpose when the military government he has just erected gives way to replace it with a popular goverument, meaning thereby a government for Santiago chosen by the free vote of the people i f Santiago. Some doubt is expressed as to wheth? er this programme will be entirely ac? ceptable to that element of the Cuban part v which demands immediate pos I session of the captured territory, but as the administration is convinced that tais element is neither the most numer | ous nor respectable in the Cuban cause I it is believed their dissatisfaction will take no more dangerous form than protects and ttrowls. It 1ms b. eu suggested that ?h? Pie ? dent's action in 'he rase of S^nti ?<> j might bd construed by European na I Uous as indicating an intent (9 diare gard the lei ins of the congressional lesoluiion which precipitated the war, tue! to mean a permanent seizure of the it-lands in behalf of the United States. This view, however, will not, it is be? lieved, ob. nil; to any extent among the representatives ol the European nations in tb? United S-rates, wno are aware of the necessity of some such action as that adopted by the President in order to prevent excesses and lawless extrav? agance at Santiago. The London newspapers comment on the relations between the Cubans and Americans at Santiago and are sar? castic at the expense ol the former for unanimously effacing themselves iu the presence ol hard work and Mauser bul? lets, and then heartily consuming American rations with patriotic zeal. The Standard foresees the possibility of a serious quarrel, the Americans be? ing compel ed to forcibly surpress the patriots whom ihey wuut to protect. It saye that enthusiasts in the United States might have been less sympathet? ic with the chivalrous Cuban if they bad seen him amid his native tctub in his native repugnance to soap and the law of decent living. Cubans are like the Cretans, one of the oppressed na? tionalities tha'. it is easier to love at a distance. T.ie Daily News regards the position as wholly creditable to the American authorities. The better American opinion will cordially support General Shatter, The paper anticipated that the Americans w ill be compelled for a considerable time to keep a substantial army in Cuba. The Daily Graphic says that (he situ? ation is piquant but scarcely surprising [i point? to the circumstances proving too strong for the virtuous resolve with vvuith the United States embarked iu tue war.
