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

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

represent the spirit of the original iu

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. Finally, iiv The oeginninir of
18U5, two further levies-, amounting
in all to 500,000 men. were ordered,
but. were only partially carried out,
in consequence of the cessation of
hostilities. 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
