MESSRS EDrons:-'-Under the above
caption, I see an editorial in the Daily

diate epture of Cuba and the formIA

However I may agree with the edotor
as to the necessity of vindicating 56- -a

our national ffag, I ctaint see tha * thew
acqjuisition of Cuba it. any vy is
iecessary to the formaniton of u South

buit that, to somae exten,.every reflsct,
inag ai has lost cufidence' in thew
national 1'eling towards the protectiort
of Sou.hern institut'ions; yet at the
presenat Limae there are ano active no-,
Lives to propI)t the people to act in'

the acquisition of Cuba is a national
question. True it may more immedi
ately concern the South than the
North, and the prospective of our
country mnay well have its bearing in
the formation of the public Southern
ainid. But if we are to have Cuba
and a Southern republic both, it were
tmuch b--tter thatdCuba should first be
nationalized before a Soamhern Re
public is fI tmed. I' tile South were
iaw cuat I.o1se from th Northi and aIll
sympathy destroyed between us and
the balanaco of tie world, we should
have enough to do to keep our ship
f'rma f'oundering, without the incum
brance of such a discordant commiuni
ty as Cuba would present upon throw-.
iag off the yoke of tile present gov
eraannenaat. In aiiy phase of the ques

matter of necessity. Under certain
