ing his eyes to what is going on
around him, and which concerns him
equully with every other citizen,and
the man does this—whoever he be—
who does not tuke and read one or
more good political journals. A sin
gle daily or weekly paper, of sound
principles and ably conducted, reg
ularly and carefully read, will fur
nish an amount of valuable informa
tion which uo citizen can afford to be
without. Every housekeeper iu the
land should have a paper iu his fam-
iv. He owes it to himself, his chil
dren. his party and his country.—
There are few men who cannot afford
to take, aud pay for at least two good
papers; and every sincere Democrat
should feel this to bo his bounden
duty. A great fault with many peo
ple (and Democrat» are not free from
it) is that while they subscribe
promptly enough for papers, they
are exceedingly careless aoout pay
ing the publishers. They must have
their papers regularly; but seem to
think the publishers cau live, sup
port their families, and meet all the
expenses of publication without
money, and so let theirdues lie over
unpaid for months and years, great
ly to the embarrassment of the pub
lishers. And when called on at last
for payment not a few tliiuk ill of
creditor for asking what is his due,
aud which is indeed indispensable to
keep up his paper. AH'this is very
wrong. We should not only sub
scribe and read the papers advocat
ing and sustaining onr principles and
our party, but pay for them prompt
ly, and think it no hardship. Apro
pos of professional politicians, who
do little or nothing to support the
political press; if we see a man anx
ious for political preferment in his
party, aud ever aud anon before the
public ¡or some position of honor
and profit, and fiud out, as often us
we may, that he has money for other
purposes, but noDe to support and
uphold the press of his party, we
should take care not to rely too im
plicitly upon his fidelity to the prin
ciples he professes. While all Dem
ocrats ought to feel it incumbent up
on them to do something toward sus
taining tbe political journals o f the
party, our men of large means ought
to feel it especially their duty to do
so. But the misfortune is, that too
many of this class are so much de*
voted to utilizing and promoting
tbeir individual business and for
tunes that they feel hut little con
cern whether tbeir party has any
able and efficient circulation or not.
There are many exceptions, we know,
but still, what we have said is true
to an extent quite too large.

W ashington . Nov. 22.—At the
Cabinet meeting yesterday, which
lasted fou rand one half hours,official
dispatches submitted confirmed tbo
belief that there is no more reason
to abandon tbe idea of attaining a
just conclusion than there was yes
terday. The sensational tales now
so rife may have a temporary effect,
but the facts remain as they were
when we announced the receipt of
official information that the Spanish
Cabinet is unanimous in favor of a
satisfactory aud honorable settle
ment of tbe Virginias difficulty, but
a regard for the maintainance of
S]iflnish territory is essential. When
it is understood that no new devel
opments have occurred since this
announcement was made (except
those regarding tlie obedience by
Borriel of the oommands of the Cas-
telur Government), it must he ac
cepted as a favorable indication of
the honest purpose of that govern
ment to deal justly. It will, there
fore, appear tliat the situation prom
ises favorable, if not peaqefnl re
sults. Our Government will, never
theless, continue its preparations in
anticipation of unfavorable results.
It is now almost certain that delays
will occur to such au extent that tho
case will necessarily be presented to
Congress in an incomplete condition.

still feeble, he hopes to be able to
remain at his post during the session

he said: “ I am for Cuba immediate

the movement to take possession of
Cuba will bring about good feeling
