The and ihe I'nltr-d Stares. In the House of Commons, Sir G.

That Committee, afier obtaining very vala- uble evidence, came to the unanimous conclusion (hat Spam ought to be required, as far aa possible, (o carry out ihe i real lea Into which she had. entered with this country for ihe suppression of the slave-trade Tlie Government of Brazil bad already yielded to the repre- sentations made to them by Her Majesty's Government It waa show n, however, before the Committee that ifae conlinuid existence of the slave-trade was mainly at- tributable I o Its encouragement In the Island of Cuba, for, though the Captaine-General of that Island hod pro- resscdlo endeavor to carry out existing treaties, ii was noioilcne they had connived at the landing of slavea. H was stated bv Caniain one of ihe should show could combat, not peror of Russia, but rtieslavo-dealaPslio. JoT- Mr HOME cnppoTied the motion. Mr. EAM.UE cupnorted (be motion. It was that ths fraudulent and falthles. conduct of the SnanlgL. Oovernment should no longer be permitted. HosTu- emedly, unices she fuldlltd her engagements Wlto us. and took care that Cuba, should no longer be Ifto graa4, and indeed sole seat of the slave-trade, which she httd, undertaken to suppress, she eonld not fairly com ilftln if England took tu> measures to prevent Cuba from, falling into the bands of the Americans. Sir J. GB-ABAV said that, though he could not at aQ concur in the proposition that, by way of collateral ar- were to hand over Cuba to the United Slates, endeavors of our cruisers both on the coast of and on the coast of Africa should be, if possible, aug- mented, and every means used for securing the real co? operation of the authorities at Cuba. [Hear.) Mr. COBIIXH pointed out that (he ton. member for In- verness bed not proposed tbet we should hand over Cu- ba to the TJcited States, but simply uuggeated Um if ain, despite her solemn engagementa to the contrary, persisted In allowing Cuba to be the focus of Ihe slave- trade, she could not call upon ug to interfere, between her at d the United States in any course: the latter Power might adopt for the acquisition of the Island. He- wished to guard himself distinctly from the expression of any opinion as to whether it would be just Or right for America to buy puba, for he believed that they were more likely to become possessed of it by that means than any other but he thought, If they really attached much importance to ihe suppression of the alave-traqe) ae they bad always asserted, and as post experience had demonstrated, they would be guilty of great inzon- nttency iftley were to offer to defend by their the right of Spain to that island. He could not imtgtno anything more calculated to mako tha Spanish Govern- ment persevere In the course she had alwajs adopted with reference to the slave-trade, Uian to allow her to entertain a hope that we would Interfere to prevent America flom becoming possessed of tbe liland of Cuba. [Hear, bear.] The Spaxiish Govern- ment oagbl to be made to understand that by pur- suing ihe policy she had chosen, disregarding, as she did, the doctiiues of elvlliuulon and humanity by con- tinuing the slave-trade, she was fast losing tbe respect and Ejmpaiby of every nation of the civilized world, and, preparing the way for some atrong Power to take pos- pfsfon of lhat Island which she hod so scandalously alused. '1 In honorable baronei had sold that Slavery e-in.d hi the Urnied State-. Thnt was true, but the slave-trade did not exist tliere. I Hear, hear.] The Uni- ted biatt-b bud uociared the slave-trade to be piracy, and It was rrc-Kjuiu omdid to put thai nation on a par wttb Spain In keeping up that odious traffic. [Hear, hear-} Without E a> ing one word about the expediency of .firing Cuba to ibe l.nlu-il Slates, or enisling that country R> like poieeselon of the Island, he thought it would be greatly far the inlrrents nf humanity tf the Untied States, i r any othrr Power that would altogether dis- cuuntenance the itavi-traae should pattest it. [Choen.} Capialn SCODF i.i. hoped they were not about to throw a bone of ntion before the public, to be -carried aciors ihe n ater and ereatc ill will. He could say noth- ing of ihe or otherwise of the Spaniards being to retain Cuba, but did thank the Govern- ment foreiery effort they bad made to nuppivse the slaic- rrde. aitd hr ho, ed the HOUHC would never for- get that ll wan very iniifi before the friends of tbe aboli- tion of that traffic could carry the measure through Parliament.
