THE ISLAND OF CUBA.
The question concerning the posses
sion of the inland of Cuba is again being
-agitated in political circles. And while
theories are under discussion by wiser
heads, more practical men and adventur
ers are eluding the vigilance of the po
lice, and passing over to the island to
take part in I lie revolution now in pro
gress there, with what ulterior designs it
is easy 4o conceive. Cuba is situated so
temptingly near our borders, that ever
wince the idea of the acquisition of ter
ritory began to be realized we have
looked upon it with a covetous eye. In
the days of slavery the fiiends of that in
stitution sought to secure it. that they
might extend the area of slavery and
thus acquire additional power in Con
gress, to counterbalance the increasing
power of the free States. New motives
now exist, almost directly the reverse of
those which formerly prevailed. We
wi.-h to see the curse of slavery which has
. so long hung like an incubus upon it,
wept away, and its future interests iden
tified with the interests of the Great Re
public of the west.
And the question arisC3 what is Cuba,
and what advantages doc3 it possess
which render its acquisition worthy of
consideration ? Cuba is the largest of
the West India Islands, embracing an area
of nearly ."0,000 square miles, about as
large as the State of New York with a
population of nearly a million and a half.
The nearest point of land is within one
hundred and fifty miles of the coast of
Florida. It is situated just within the
torrid zone, and the temperature thrffngh
out the year is very even. The difference
between the hottest and coldest months is
only about 21 deg, at Havana, and 14
leg. iu the interior. The thermometer
Feldom rises above 00 deg. and there is no
record of snow having fallen but once,
nud that was in 1S5G, the coldest time
ever experienced. Most of the fruits and
grains common to tropical regions grow
in great abundance. Maize, tobacco, rice,
page, pulse, yuca, sweet potato, coffee, of
the best quality, etc., while her annual
exports of sugar, range from seven to
eight hundred millions of pounds. It is
said thai in proportion to her population
Ler exports exceed those of any other
country on the globe. This is whal she
has been able to accomplish under a des
potic rule, or what is perhaps worse, un
der the most degrading form of slavery,
it is difficult to tell what might be done
under a well-regulated system of free la
bor,, and with her population doubled.
We have not space to enumerate all the
advantages she possesses in the way of in-t.-vnal
improvements, Ja-ciiilies for culti
vating the soil. tc., suffice it to say that
these are not surpassed by the southern
portions of our own land. These things
have all been accomplished under the
disadvantages of a slave system, and a
government weak at home, and without
respect abroad. Columbus landed upon
this island during his first voyage, and
took possession iu the name of their Most
Catholic Majesties. Ferdinand and Isabella
of Spain, and it has never passed out
1rom under the dominion of the Spanish
government. Most of her other posses
sions on the Western Continent have
slipped from her grasp, but she has ever
kept a tenacious hold of Cuba, When
the United States came into possession of
Florida, in 1S21. the government at
Washington began to 'take an interest in
this island. Biu no definite propositions
were made regarding its purchase, until
IS 18. when President Polk authorized the
American Minister at Madrid to make an
o;IVr for it of $100,000,000. The offer was
peremptorily rejected. Further attention
was called to the subject of annexation in
IS J', when Lopez, adefeated revolutionist,
bought shelter in this country. Here he
carried on his revolutionary schemes.
After one or two failures, he succeeded in
eluding the vigilance of the government.
and with 500 recruits sailed from New
Orleans in August 1851. He effected a
landing in the island but was soon de
feated, taken prisoner and perished. There
was a manifest sympathy on the part of
the southern people with this project of
Lopez which came near bringing us into
difficulty with ?pain. But happily specks
of war disappeared. In I So 4, Buchanan.
in Cuba, which may be regarded as a
Consequence thereof, has again turned the
thoughts of the people towards the ques
tion of annexation. The old motives for
desiring Cuba are no longer in force. We
seek possession of the island for new and
higher reasons In the honest judgment
of humanity Spain should forfeit all claims,
and allow it to become an independent
government, and then of its own free will
to drift under the protection of our flag.
If unwilling to do this it should accept a
reasonable compensation that it may be
come ours by the right of purchase. The
reasons why Cuba should belong to us
can be summed up in a few words.
First, To secure the abolition of slavery.
It is time that this monstrous curse had
disappeared from the surface of the
Second, Its situation is such that it can
be more easily governed by us, than by
any other people. It is a part of the
American Continent, and should no lon
ger be under the control of European
Third, It should be brought into sub
jection to a strong government.one that can
secure the reign of law and order, a gov
ernment which from the very nature of its
constitution must feel a deeper interest in
the welfare of subject peoples, than in
the amount of income to be secured.
Fourth, It should be ours, that in time
of war " neutral' governments need not
send out pirates from her ports to prey
upon our commerce.
Fifth. It is the garden from whence we
receive large quantities of the most valu
able products for consumption, we ought
to be the gardeners.
Sixth, It should be brought under the
influence of a nation which shall secure
for it a higher form of civilization and in
fuse into the various branches of its ac
tivity American enterprise and. energy.
Let us secure it by fair and honorable
means if we can. if not await patiently
the developments of the future.
GOLD FINING-SING UL A R EUR ORS.
The Philadelphia Ledger, in al
luding to that portion of President
Grant's inaugural which speaks jf
the golden-grained hills of the
West, falls into some singular er
rors, the most prominent of which,
being the following: It says,
" When- it cotfs 100 cents to find
and wash oat a dollar's worth of
(old, the business should be aban
doned as xuiprolitahleP
The fallacy of this assertion is
readily shown by the Philadelphia
Press. Without regard
vast results attending the produc
tion of gold, we will present a very
simple table, keeping in mind the
fact that it has " cost a dollar :"
The production in California since
ms is . 1.100,000,000

THE LAST HOURS. "
A Washington correspondent of
the Ik raid thus alludes to an event
quite interesting ;
A measure of paramount interest
to the people of Oregon was pass
ed at the closing hours of the ses
sion. T allude to the act to amend
an act entitled t' an act granting
lands to aid in the construction of
a railroad and telegraph line from
the Central Pacific Kailroad in
California to Portland, Oregon,"
i T 1 n - toff TM . i o

A dispatch from Promontory
Point on -May 10th at noon says
that the last rail is laid, the last
spike is driven the Pacific Rail
road is completed. The point of
junction is ten hundred and eighty
six miles' west of the Missouri, and
six hundred and ninety miles east
of Sacramento. The tie was made
of California Laurel, highly pol
ished and engraved. The spike
was made of gold, presented by
David Hcwes, of San Francisco,
inscribed as follows on the head :
"The last spike." On one side:

The dispatches recently stated
that a bill had been introduced in
Congress conferring upon individu
als all the privileges and immuni
ties of corporations. We presume
that the provisions are the same as
those or the measure of like name
introduced and urged at the last
session of the Ohio ' Legislature.
The title, probably, is sufficient to
iindicate what the terms of the bill

crivin"" notice publicly of intention
to do, may invest a triven a-
Total loss in the operation 0,000,000,000
So much has been invested, and
so much has been taken out, and
the investment has thus been paid
back in about twenty years, or a
little longer than it requires to
double any investment at a legal
rate of interest. So much for the
simple figures in the transaction ;
let us look at the collateral results !
If we take California as an ex
ample, we must compare it as it is
now, with what it was in 1848.
Accepting the theory that it has
cost a dollar to get a dollar, we
find besides paying the investment
back, that there is a profit on the
outlay of an immense number of
mills, an enormous aggregate ot ;
machinery, apparatus, and tools,
besides vastly increasing the good
will value of the territory.
The profits to labor must also
be considered. It was estimated
bv Commissioner King that soon
after the discovery of gold in Cal
ifornia, fifty-five thousand miners
were at. work in that State, and
the number engaged in mining has
not varied much since. It must
be remembered that their labor
iras paid for out of the or i (final
outlaw. The result to labor is as

Number days' work done in 20 year--. . . 220,000,000
Amount paid for labor, from fri to $10 per

Thus, at an ordinarily fair com
putation, labor lias absorbed moie
than half of the original capital.

fits will, undoubtedly, be required. mve bcon fe(i clothed, and housed
the Senate twice ; once just betore
the close of the session ending the
4th of March, and once during this
session. It is but fair to say that
its final passage by both houses is
due to the indefatigable exertions
and indomitable energy of the
Hon. J. II. Mitchell and S. F.
Chadwick, Esq., who have had the
matter in charge, and, who have
surmounted obstacles that ap
peared at times impossible to over
come. When the matter was up
for consideration in the Senate,
last week, the opposition came
principally from Corbett, who read
a lengthy paragraph of over one
hour and a half's duration and
which rather confused than en
lightened the Senate, and did more
to aid in the passage of the East
Side Railroad bill as passed
than if he had got up and appear
ed as its champion and advocate.
The morning hour expiring, Wil
liams moved that his colleague be
allowed tjme to finish his disserta
tion, intimating that he did not in
tend to allow the measure to be
defeated, or to fail to obtain a vote
on it, by tho tactics of this collea
gue. This raised the anger of
Corbett, who, in a personal ex
planation, said he did not want to
be characterized as a tactician ; his
object was to do his duty to his
friends and constituents. To
which Williams rejoined, that lie
had no objection to the Senator
enlightening the Senate, but hi
dissertation was entirely foreign to
the subject matter, and he might Jn the last fifteen years
as well read some of Gulliver's number of t he finest stock
side, this sentiment. "Mav God
continue the unity of our country
as this railroad unites the two
great oceans of the world." The
other sides bear the names of the
Directors and officers of the Compa
ny. The spike is fac simile in
size and shape of the ordinaay six
inch spike, to the point of which
was attached in the casting a nug
get of about the same length as
the spike itself, which is designed
to be broken off at the time of the
completion ceremony by the Presi
dent of the road, to be used prob-
nblv in the manufacture of
mementoes of the occasion for the
officers of the corporation. The
value of spike and nugget is 8414.
The Union Pacific Express Com
pany furnished the hammer which
drove the last spike. It was made
of solid silver.
The price of fine carriage
horses has readied an unparallelled
high figure in the Atlantic cities.
In view of this, a gentleman well
versed in such matters, and lately
returned from New York, says that
among the earliest uses of the Pa
cific Railroad will be the transpor
tation of horses from Oregon to
Eastern markets. That the horse
has wonderfully appreciated in
Oregon, owing to various causes,
particularly to the absence of
those extremes of heat and cold
which prevail in the Atlantic
States, is now a well .attested fact.

Climatic Contrast. Last week
we had accounts of a heavy storm
which prevailed over several of
the Atlantic States, and the dis
patches this morning speak of a
destructive hail storm in the Mis
sissippi valley which greatly dam
aged the fruit and vegetable crops.
While all this was going on the
Pacific slope was sitting almost in
the lap of summer. In Oregon,
far North of Pennsylvania or Illi
nois, we have for a long time had
warm, bright, and beautiful weath
er, and while Pennsylvania was
lying under her mantle of snow,
and Illinois under a pelting rain of
hail, we were seeking out the cool

Pennsylvania or Illinois? Who,
in view of the climatic contrast,
would not live in Oregon ? Ore
