It Is not generally known that Cuba very nearly became a French Colony In the reign or Louis Philippe, for Spain, being without means or raisins money, Queen Christina or rered some or the principal Spanish colonies for sale. Secret negotiations weie carried on at the Tullerles bef.veen Sen'or Cam pur.ano, the Spanish ambassador; Senor Aguudo, the bunker; Prince de Talleyrand, and King Ixmls Philippe, and the first article of the treaty, by which Spain was to sell Cuba to France for 30,000,000 francs, or $6, 000,000, was quickly agreed to. But the second aitlele, relating to Porto Hlco nnd the Philippines, broke off ths negotiations, for Spain asked $2,000,000, whereas France would of fer only $1,400,000.
