Report- iVom .Spain indicate t!;-i tlic railed Republican arc ereatirg Ii;n rljncps in various partí of tho niiiinry. Since t líe beginning of the reign of the present iving, Spain has been peaceable and has been notably free from all kinds of disturbances, lt i )robabb; to that the government has been lettoi' conducted and with a more direct view to Ihe- welfare of the people than any reign during the present century. This for the pres ent should satisfy all classes in all pro bability .-nils nil pcacable well dispo sed citizens, and as i i-onsequcnce there must be a reeling outside of that country that these l:Me out breaks are more for the purpose of creating cou-fu-iun by which these malcontents hope to pro 1st than with any view to tiie general good or to I he ultimate crea tion of a republican form of govern ment. With Ihese agitators tho peo ple of the United S-lutes can have Ut ile sympathy as the general feeling is that Spain now has the form of gov ernment best adapted to its people. The Cuban insurrection cons-ists of burning and plnmieriKg expeditious by the so called patriots who ravage tin.1 detached plantations, occasionally surprise and plunder a small town, but run a soon as-the soldiers appear This coupled with the nnsettled con dition of the question question of slavery íuvoIto-s trouble rü&I con fusion and while cost'r-igtroasiu'os and valuable lives docs nothing toward separatingthe i-tland from Spain, and does nothing for the people of the in terior dilricts who have bqyen hupov crishe.l by the 1 roubles of the last ten years. While Americans sould for some reasons rejoice at the csfrabblish of a Republic in Cute they can merely look at these burnings and plundering with a feeling of hoirror. The so call ed patriots would do well to cultivate the arts of peace for a few years and see if independent e riitJ not fol'o.v. The recent political trouble in Xew York has brought the Tammany society before the public in inore than its usual prominence and many per sons are asking as to the origin. Tammany was an Indian chief who lived in New Jersey, at some unknown period adopted as patron saint by the pat riots during the Revolutionary war A festival in his honor was held May 12 each year and the custom was kept, up in the army for thirty years. A wigwam was erected with a liberty pole near it. The pole was surmounted bv a liberty cap, loma" hawk, wampun, etc, A representa tive came out of tent and made a speech to encourage the patriots to continue the war for liberty. At the end of the address ho withdrew into the tent while his hearer danced around the liberty, pole. Societies named in honor of the same patriot saint were organized, and his day was celebrated ira various parts oí the country, but finally lost popularity, and now the Xew York Tammany is the only represen tat i ye of the nanny while it can hardly be considered to represent the spirit of the original iu !:iiutioii. T!n opposition to. Cornell for governor of New York is increasing among the Republicans,. and it looks a little as through the inibieuce of t lie administration would be a gains him.. .Many of the Grant ''boomers" will work against him, for if the Republi cans carry Xew York this year Grant will cease to be a party necessity. AVith Xew York on that side any man can be elected president, and so. their will be a big crop of candidates- to light for the nomination, but if Xew York. mud Ohio are in the doubt ful lit noon imt Grant will be men tioned in the ríep-uWuíau. national convention..

The military history of the United States is as strange as the rise and rapid growth oí the nation. In 1790 the rank and file of the army, as iixed by act of Congress, amounted to 1,216 men, ami ai-i hwmsh expedition of only 9.,r)00 men was able to seize and"burn AVashington. the capital of a country which even then numbered 8.000,000 of inhabitants. In 18(51, at the commencement of the war of the secession, (lie whole regular force amounted to only 14.000 men In April of that year the President cal led out 7'),000 volunteers, for three mouths, t(Mlefeud thecapital, which was tlinatcneu: and m;,Jay ti lurlher call' for 12,000 was made. Jn July two calls. for f00,000 each were authorized by Congress, and as even this vat force proved in.-uilicient for the gi gantic struggle which America had now embarked in, it was loun I neces saav to introduce the conscription. In October, lMlkl. a levy of ÍOO.O'jO men was ordered. a:;d in February, 181)4, a further can' of ";00,C0O was made.

The total number of men called under arms by the Government of the United Stales, between April, 1881. and April, 18(5."), amounted 1o 2.7."9,049, of whom 2fióVM were ac tually embodied In the armies. If to these be added the 1,100.000 men em bodied by the Southern States during the-same time, the total armed forces reach the enormous niiniiunt of nearly J.000.000, drawn' ' from a population o-t only .S2.000.000 ligures before which the celebrated uprising of the Fronch nation in 179,1. or the recent efforts of France and Germany in the w.-r of 1870-71r'uik into insignificance; And within three years the whole of -'hose vast forces were poaccfully dis banded, ami the army hud: shrunk, to a normal strength conly ñOt.WX .Now that Ihe I!nlih goyirnincnt ha caiitured Cetewayo, fegrvat Zulu warrior, the quei-tion arises: U i nú ueMiou ar ses: nir will be done with him?
