It is now more than probable-that Gov ernor Ames will be impeached. It is only necossary to peruse his mes :Bftge to see that he courts impeach- .ment.

Spain, Cuba, and tho United States. The. Mnneliesler (iuanlian's Lon don correspondent, writes as lol lows on Spain, Cuba and the Uuil- j ed State : I have been furnished with what purports to bo tho substance of America's Cuban nolo, I bclievo it it correct, is correct. I believe though I don't protend to give tb exact language. It recites that in the general interest oi humanity and commerco, it demands a cessation of the struggle which has been wag ed in Cuba for several years. Tho I nited stales aro great sutierera, but are unwilling to act without the conenrronce of other powers, in cluding Spain. Tho continuance of an attempt to govorn Cuba from Madrid, will be fatal to the hopes of tho restoration of peace, never theless Cuba belongs to Spam and sparo population is opposed to separation. On theso circumstances a solution of the question might be found in establishing a couredt-ni- tion in the West indies, resembling the Canadian. Cuba and Porto Ri co might be constituted a con federation, with local and nidepen -dent rigtits, and a Governor Gener al appointed by Spain. Tho Powers are asked to join tho United States in proposing such a confederation and aiding Cuba to establish it. Tho abolition of slavery would however bo a necessary condition, and such pressure must be brought to bear as would make tho insur gents ccoso their warfare. This would bo uuuc-ult, but could be ac complished. Secretary Fish is em phatic in denying that the United States the acquisition ortuba. lliey only wish peace restored and sla very abolished and commerco allow ed to resume its course. The pow ers are asked to express their opin ion on tho proposition and tho means ot accomplishing their ends. Tha Hesug. Tho Message, so lur it relates to the lain election, is a studied falsi fication of facts aud a deliberate insult to the people, who offended their plunderers by turning them out of office. It is a repetition of the slanders which have been re tailed by the gossips and discomfit ed demagogues of the Radical par ty, and is designed to furnish capi tal for partisan uses at the cost of the good name of tho white pooplo of tho .State- In all that is said touching the causes of tho distur bances alluded to, there is not a syl lable of truth, and -vheu Gov. Ames, who is himself an interloper aud soldier of lorluno, pretends to de precate race antagonism, ho knows 111 his heart that ho is slwdding'hy pocritical toarsovci causes produced by himself and tho other peripatetic adveuturors who have been turned adrift by the outraged people of the State. With the exception of tho few riots plotted by tho Radical leaders tbore never was a more peaceful po litical contest than occurred in this State In 1875 ; and there uevor was more just and timely verdict pro nounced against the culprits who have been seuteucod to retirement. -Clarion. , GENERAL HEWS. .
