disgrace at the request of the Spanish It Is amusing to see how those stovles find currency One journal assured us that the general merely came back for his family another that the Spanish Ministry had intimated to Fish that a new Minister would be more accept iblo to The Spanish mind rapidly arrived at the conclusion that America was in n line stato of terror as to Cuban affairs that the earnestness of Sickles upon tho subject was not welcomed at especially to an administration that dreads the power of Spain as keenly as that of On llie other wo can readily under stand how any American in active espe cially with political purposes and ambitions at would hesitate before giving an unusual fragment of his life to At its and with all the color and grace and harmony and vivacity

oC You have heard all about the a doctor pretty well on in years and In practice in Cionfuo was supposed to have taken an active part with the and was tried by a Spanish which in the most

of our fear of the enor mous power of While Sickles was absent on wedding tours and campaigns against Erie we have been mildly seeking gentleness to mak ing throwing out hints and hopes gently intimated desires that Spain in its infinite mercy would remand the doctor to his family and friends So far as America is tlie Spanish miiui thinks that our administration is hi terror of its arms and So far as Cuba la Spain hai no abundant As I have the average Spanish mind believes that nothing has prevented tho United States from taking Cuba by force of anna but a dread of We have been and are
