Cuba is ou vergo of ruim, and there is no salvation for her excfpi thi'pi'fih a severance from Sp-iin. Her inloabitants are in a cocdition of des- peration, and it. is reported that they are prepaiiug for a struggle -rfnr the independence of their island. When General Gomtz lauds with the force which he is now organizing: a general uprising' willcceur, it is believed, and the blacks are to bn incited to join in the insurrection. The great struggle which began in 1SGS, and with the. surrender of the Cuban patriots in February, 1868. was a very costly one to Spain, and it is doubtful if she will esteem Cuba of sufficient value to undertake another war for her subjugation. She sent 112.000 of her troops to the isl'ind during the nine years of the war, but without the zealous co-operation of the Spaniards of and other cities she could not have crushed the re- bellion. The situation is now very different from that of 1SC3. Cuba no longer productive aud prosperous, but her plantations are dcsolale, and she is bankrupt. Wealthy Spaniards will rot now afford the mother country tha assistance which she received from them to suppress the former revolt, but oa the contrary wealthy inhabitants of the island art enjased in the movement to make Cifbarfree.' In a population of a little mnre than only about nOO aro whites, and the decision of the nejrroes to join the insurrection may make the revolt the most formidable ever organized by Cubans against Spanis'.i authority.

Mr. Lnwell, who ia a slow going person, and particularly slow when ihecoseof Irish- Amurican citizens arn concerned, coin- inun cated with -Mr. Simms. the Ameri- can coi-sul at Belfast, and rcijuested him to investigate the McSiveeney case. Jlr. .-SiniM.B ilij aa reyiiesred. autl reported that Mr. McSwdaney, though at ont tiine an American oi izen, had apparent- ly ivmrued to his former giance, in- asmuch us lie had accepted oftice in Ire- land, an office created by the British government c'ont.ary to the protest of ihe Irish people, smd had" taken his domicile peimanCEtly under tl.e.British thereby forfeiting his claims to American citizenship.' Mr. fimms ad- vistd Mr. Lowell that Mr. McSweeuey's not one for the interference of the American government. While this correspondence was going on Mr. Mc- Sweenoy became impntieut and wrote to Mr. Mr. Blaiue, thvn secretary of state. Mre. JlcSweenry also Mr. Bluino of course referred their loiters io Jlr. Lowell, who communicated b ick to Mr, Blain-the result of hij investig'tions. Mr. Blaine advised a further scrutiny, i ecause if the appeal made by Mrs. Jlc- Sweeney. Before the reply to the American min- ister at London -wt-s received, Garfiold had died, and Frelinghuysen had talceu iiis pkce.. The action of Mr. Blame, howurer, had been produc'iveof and in a few months after Mr. McSwee- ney was release-d. These are the facis as fur as his case is concerned. 1 Mr. McSweeney, to be sure, complains that Mr. Blaine did not answer his. or IIH wife's letters. This is foolish. It the secretary of state replied to every complaint made, therewonld be 110 sur- plus in the treasury, t'-it is certain. Mr. Blaine did what was meet anrl prop- r under the circumstances. He raftrred i he case to Mr. Lowell, the American minister to Great Britain. Mr. Lowell acted, though tardily, on.Mr. Blames instructions. Now, it must be remembered in this connection, that Mr. had acted as a British subji ctin In-IaM, by In.Iding office. Be has held tha same (lice ever since.

In fact it could not possi- bly have be> n, it was a letter not from Mr. Blame, but to him. The original went to him five years be- fore, and was destroyed. It did not re- main with Fisher, aud could not have been in the Mulligan package. They only had the letter press_ copy, ami it ia this copy they have furnished for publi- cation at this" time.

They wish to br.ak down the protective tariff and cripple our mantifaftures, and nine- tonths of the Irish voters "f the country respond wilii alacrity, 'Yes, we will do your bidding and vote as you please, eveh-thougu it reduce our own wages and take tne bread -from the mouths of our ch-ldren.' There, are many able- men and'cl -Ter wr-ters among the -Irish in America, but I have never nvt one of them abla enough to explain this anomaly on any basis of logic and good sense.

The English press generally expresses the liveliest interest in the success o.C the Democratic ticket. The sympathy of the ruling classes- ID England has "been i-teadily with the Democratic party because the lacterjs believed to favor a tariff policy which will bre-ik down American manufactures and make the United States the chwf marketing place for English goods. _ bo stiong is this feeling, that notwith- standing the powerful sentiment in op- position to nesro slavery among the Eog ish, it lad Engl.vn-4 in the slavery slrugglo in this country, to side squarely with the slaveholders who were for free tra-'e. let all these .years the Irish-America's have been blind enough 'to vote almost solidly for tho party for whose success England is praying. But there aw signs that they are seeing tho folly of such a course, and that, tho present canrass will witness tho defection of many thousands of Iri-h-Arafiricans who have hitherto with great fidelity but. with little wisdom, adoered to the democratic party, In this state the dcmocra'sare malting the r canvass on the issue of f rse iradu. They are flood'ng the rural districts with documents designed to teach hostility to the idea of protection, and to per- suade the people that they pay, -on every article protected by tbe tariff, the full amonnt oE the the duty thereon m addition to what would otherwise be iw cost. Of course none but the most iimorant can be imp-'Sed on by by such representations, but the leaders hare great reliance on popular ignorance.

They ha' ea new country, and are in ihape to irofit by the ex perience of the oldt puni ;iis of the itate. Now, the universal expei icoce of t ;e state is, that land covered with lu'ive. timber is the only land that depreciates, in value in Iowa. The early settlers stick close to tas timber, consider it almost priceless and find each year that ;t is wpith less, until the major put of it is abandoned and sold for taxes. Madison County, for instance, is one of Ihe best timbered: counties in the state. A. gentleman, told us labt week that be came to the. county thirty-six years ajro to enter land and after traveling all over it concluded not to enter land, because of the scarcitv of He bad never been in the county since that time and was surprised to find that 'every stream was lined with timber and that it was an absolute drug on the nmrket. The thing for setlkrs in the nortn- wst to do is to plant timber just pl-ot heavj planting too many-and plant them of tbe very best.tb.at are hardy in that latitude. We would not ad vise planting Catal pa as far noith as Humbolt Couniy. and yet we believe it will prove hardy if olanted from seed raided in Webster County or any county in-that latitude in Iowa.
