2 FUR-SEAL ¡"ISHERIES üF ALASKA.


A portion of the report of Yinccnt Oobier, special Indian conunissioner, in
relatuni lo the fur-seal fisheries on Sto Paul Island, Alaska.


[Extract.]


THE LANDING.


We arrived at the island of Sto Paul, in the Behring Sea, on the moru-
ing of the 8th of October, 1869. A strong current to the westward car-
ried us out of onr reckouing over twenty miles.


As we dropped anchor in Southwest Bay, the wind died away and
there was a light surf breaking on the beach. There is no harbor ou
either Sto Paul 01' Sto George's Island, aud vessels IULYe to wait upon
the course 01' the winds to make successful landings, There is good
anchorage in several bays, and so long as the winds rernaiu favorable.
vessels can load and discharge cargo without difficulty. Captains have
to keep watchíul care, however, to avoid being caught in unfavorable
gales.


Along the shore of Sto Paul's Island the fur-seals were gathered in
great herds, ealled rookeries, They were evidently excited at the
approach of our steamer, and theír bellowing resemblerl the sbeep and
eattle in the great sale markets near our large cities. The noises were
varied. The young pups at times bark like a dog, though their more
eommon cry resembles the bleating of a Iam b ; the older ones bellow like
a cow. As their motion is slow over the ground, aud the aniinals smell
stroug, they are not nnlike a heard of swine, though much less offensive,
and incomparably more attractive and iuteresting.


While the offieers from the island were assorting their letters and
exchanging congratulations wit.h their frieuds on board out' steamer, the
captain lowered a quarter boat, and arranged for the passage of the
interpreter, Colonel Wicker, and myself, to the shore, On our way thither
t.he young seals assembled around us in large numbers, 'I'hey appeared
delighted at the presence of the boat, the moverneut of the oars, and tbe
tluttering of our United States revenue flag, and after Jooking at us
with their dark hazel eyes, large and beautiful as those of the gazelle,
raising their heads erect and stretching their necks as far out of the
water as they eould, they would dive dowu only to agaiu appear and
take another look. At last they got into regular order and motion on
either side of us, turning somersaults lilee porpoises, ano, forming an
escort, accompanied us to tbe shore.


PRIVATE INTERVIEWS WITH THE ALEUTES.


Having proYicled ffiyself with an interpreter in whose abilit-y, honesty,
and trutbfulness 1 could rely, while theofficers walkecl up to lwadquarters
on the island, 1 went into the cabins of the Alentes. As this interpreter
had previously resided on the island, the Aleutes warmly welcomed us,
ancl were at once verv frank in their communications. Thev saiel that
they were doing about as in years gone by; that they were iíow killillg
seals three times a week-on Mondays, vVednesdays, alld Fridays; that
they usual1y killed betweell two and three thous~tnd on each of these
days~ 01' about eight thousand per week; that there were at the prE'sent
time about sixty thousancl skins in salt on tlle island; tl1at these skins
were stored in four salt-honses on t'our differellt poillts 011 tJJe islandj
that ·one of these salt-houses was near at hand; another a short distance
across the village, on Sontheast Bay; a thircl about five miles to the
northwest of the village, on Southwest Bay; and the f'ourth fifteen miles

to the northeast, on Northeast Point. As the revenue officer in charge
on the island, in coming ashore with us in the long-boat, had said that
there were only thirty thousand seals killed this season, ami only that
number of skius 1l0W on the islaud, the aboye statement of the Aleutes,
donbling this amount, arrested rny attention,


The Aleutes further said that they reccived forty cents per seal for
killing, skinning, &c., and that they usually averaged fifty skins per
day to each man, though experts could capture one hundred animals ;
that they received pay either in goods from the store 01' in cash, as they
chose, Tite kiIIing commences some years as early as June, and con-
tinues in a fragmentary wav during .Iuly, and is at its height in August,
September, and October, during whieh latter two months by far the
larger number of skins are taken, It will be seen by- the aboye that
the season averazes not more than síxteen weeks, and, at the; e rates, an
able-bodied Aleute can snpport his familyjcomfortably,


THE ALEUTES.


There are about two hundred aud fifty natives on St. Paul's Island,
and one hundred and twenty-flve on St. George. Of the two hundred
and fifty on Sto Paul's, not more than fif'ty are relied on as active hunt-
ers. The women assist liberally, both in carrying the skins to the salt-
houses and in waiting on the men, carrying water, &c. AH the Aleutes
are nominal members of the Russo-Greek church. A few oí the more
intelligent can read and write, but these are very few, AH of them
are íutelligent, peaceable, generally industrions, aud ambitious to im-
proveo


'I'here are about forty houses, 01' huts, built of tnrf and grass 011 a frame-
work of timber like the sketch opposite. They are about t.wenty feet
long by fífteen feet wide, with roots not over seven feet high, They
resemble the huts our soldiers erected for winter quarters during the
war, and, like them, while warm and comfortable, are often over-crowded,
and laek both light and ventilation. The light is admitted through a
transparent skin or bladder, and the door-ways are usually so small aud
low that you llave to stoop to pass through them. The furniture is
scanty: a few woorlen chairs 01' stools, a broad bunk of boards raised
about a foot from the ground, on which is nsually laid a mattress of
grass 01' straw, with a blanket 01' two for sleeping; two 01' three mar-
mot-skin frocks from Oukamok Island ; sorne Behring Sea duck-skin
sbirts; water-proof jackets, made of the intestines of the seal ; a harpoon,
buneh oí arrows and bow for sea-otter bunting; occasionally a flint-Iock
rnusket, and a copy of the HussoGreek, alld Aleutian Island din1ect trans-
latíon of Sto Matthew's Gospel, comprehend the whole of their posses-
sious.


The Alentes were silent at first when 1 inqnired if they were treated
kindly by their employers, tbough they frankly acknowledged that
they were better off than when undel' the rule of the Hussian FuI' Com-
pallY, and their houses were improved, but, as that was a conditioll of
serfdom it was not sayillg mucho


The priee they paid for goods and provisions was not high, consider-
ing the distance they were brought, it being about one-third more
thall a t San Francisco.


Several of the cltildren could play skillfully on the accordeon, and this
1 found to be a fhvorite instrument among them. The women are rery
handy with tlle needle, some 01' their embroidery und sewing being as
good as that done by any.

:i\lüNüPüLIES.


The men said there were two sets of employers for whom they worked
on the island, though of late they had put the seal skins of both firms
in one store-house, and all things appeared to be in common. These
two firms obtained from Mr, lVlcCullough, late Secretary of the Treas-
ury, perrnission to place two men on the islands, ostensibly to take care
of their buildings only. AH other persous 01' flrms are forbidden to land,
the act of Oongress of last year expressly prohibiting the killing of any
fur seals, (See Appendix X.)


This appareut partiality in favor of the two above-named fírms pro-
vokes wide-spread dissatisfaction on the Pacific coast, and probably ac-
counted for a great deal of the seandal, so general among the people
out there, in regard to the reported irregularities supposed to be prac-
ticed on those islands,


Having noted the aboye staternents of the Aleutes, 1 left thern aTH1
went to call on the officers and present my letter of introduction from
General Davis and authority from the President, 1 met the lieutenant,
the revenue officer in charge ón the island, in company with Colonel
Frank W. Wicker, in the salt-house. They had just come down from
headquarters, Oolouel Wicker asked the lieutenant how many skins
were in that salt-house. 1 understood the lieutenant to say, in reply, about
twenty-eight thousand. Co1onel Wicker then asked if that was the
only house in which skins were srored. The lienteuant replied that
there was one other at the other side of the village, in which there was
about two thousand skins. Colonel Wicker then said, "Alld that is all
there are at present on the island .~ " The lieutenant auswered, "Yes."
lt was then near dark and we left the store-house, took our yawl and
went on board the steamer,


The wide discrepancy between these two statements of the lieutenant
and the Aleutiau Islanders caused me to report the same to Colonel
1Vicke1', aud that there might be no misunderstanding 1 put them
in writing and officially addressed the note to the colouel,


It had been our intention to leave the next morning, but these COll-
tradictory statements caused the eolonel and Captain Evans to remain
another dav and make an examination of the island.


The next morning, Saturday, October 9, we landed through a very
heavy surf, and Coloncl Wicker commenced making his examinations,
asking me to assist in the measurements, the Iieutenunt in charge 01'
the revenue on the island and Captaíu Evaus, of tIle Liucoln, being
presento "Ve measured one pile, carefully eouuted the uumber of skins
in it, too k that as a standard, and then measured carefully the other
piles,


THREE SAILüRS DRüWNED.


lV/lile we were engaged in examíníng tIre two houses near tlIe
village, word carne that two vessels, a schooner and a bark, were lIover-
.ing off tIle island. This caned away Captain Evalls. Colo.n~l Wick~T

of the drowning men, and there was no adequate means at hand to save
them, The Aleutes, after severalnarrow escapes from swamping, gave
up the effort, and, rowing behind the ledge of rocks toward which the
drowning men were drifting, leaped from their boat, and at the risk of
their lives, went through the breakers and brought the bodies ashore,


The offícers of the government and the agents of the traders on the
island were unremitting in their efforts to save the Iives of the men,
but three of them were dead, and we had great difficulty in restoring to
life the two others,


THE FUR SEALS.


This painful incident occupied us for several hours, and it was afternoon
before we were able to start across the island to visit "Southwest Bay
House," five miles distant, Our party was Colonel Wicker, Joseph, the
interpreter, an Aleute of the island as guide, and myself. We walked
over, and found the path led along by the shore through half a dozen large
seal rookeries. From a count and measurement we made we must have
passed by on this shore, ñve miles long, nearly a million of seals, and yet
this is uot one-half of the space they occupy on St. Paul's Island. They
were of all sizes, from the young pup, about as hig as a very large cat, to the
old males, as large as a cow. Their color varies from a gray-brown of the
old ones to a dark-brown in the young pups. The females seem shorter
in the neck, and liad the wide pelvis common to the sexo They meas-
ure, by guess, about fíve feet in length, The male seal is much larger,
measuriug seven 01' eight feet in length, and weighing over a thousand
pounds. Some of these were on guard, others were in the water. 1
saw nothing of that systematic herding of families by the old males
referred to by the Russian authorities, probably because it was so late
in the season. The bachelors, as the young males of four 01' five ycars
are ealled, were swimming along shore, and moving with the crowd of
old and young on the plateaus aboye. Sorne of them could be seen for
half a mile OH the hill-tops inland, three 01' four hundred feet above the
sea. These plateaus extend from the base of the hills to the sea, a dis-
tanee of flve hundred yards. As the islands are volcanic, the sand is
broken at intervals with black volcanic rock cropping out. The seals
appear to like these stones, and clambered over them with great facílíty,
eonsidering the peculiar formation of their flippers, The assertion that
the fur-seal eats but little food from June to September may be true;
certainly there was little 01' no offensive excrement even in October,
when 1 believe it is acknowledged that they do get sorne food from the
water.


There were myriads of young pups along shore and in the water, and
tbey are most beautiful animals. They will not always run at your
approach, though generally, if they are between you and the water, they
wiU hurry ofi' to t11e water. vVe saw but few sea-lions. Our guide in-
formed us that t11ey frequented the northeast point more, though t11ere
had uot becn as many there as usual. The Aleutes seemed to regard
their absellce as an iU omen. lt seems that sorne years since aU the
seals left these Pribilov islands and went to Behring and Copper islands,
00 the IÚu;;sian eoast. As the Russians reserved these two islands in
the sale of Alaska, there is some solicitude lest the seals should get
frightened away amI go there again. The old sea-líons are regarded as
tbe pioneer 01' pieket guards of the fur-seal, aud their absence is looked
upon with distrust.


The skin of the sea-líon, as well as the flesh, is highly prizcd; the

former for coveriug bidarkas 01' canoes, and the latter for food, These
huge animals are usually killed with a muskct hall.


The seal pup is born usually in the months of J uI,\' and carIy part of
August, about a fortnight after the mothers havo arrived on the island.


The males arrive about the middle of June, aud the yearl ing pnps fol-
low their mothers the latter part of .Iuly, The young pnps are saíd to
be in no hUlTY to go into the water, the parentshaving to force them in
at ñrst, when their elder brothers, the bachelors, take charge 01' them
and teach thern to swim.


In killing the seal, the two and three-year 01<1 male pups are chosen,
both for thé quality of their fur, Iightness of the pelt, and to preserve
the supply. The hunters get between the herd and the water, wliich is
a very easy thing to do, and drive .them a short distance inland toward
the salt-houses, when they select their animnls, and with a Iiard wooden
club tal' them a light blow on the nose 01' liead, ami so ki1l them. Care
has to be taken in the driving not to overheat the animals, so as to
loosen the fur and ruin the skin; generally they are allowed to rest
awhile before the killing commences. The guide explained to us that
in the skiuning all the Indians had a com mon interest, each Aleute doing
hís best and sharing tho receipts; the chief receiving au extra portien.


On our way we passed a number of the slaugtrter places. 'I'hey were
mueh nearer the rookeries ami the shore than the descriptions, and the
much talked of ueeessary precautions against frightening the animal,
would lead you to suppose. In sorne cases they were not a hundred
yards from the rookeries, and the dead bodies were within easy reaeh 01'
the rambling bachelor seals, Large quantities of meat was wasted, and
in manv instances even the fat was not cut off. 'I'he meat of the seal is
of excellent, flavor, 1 should think quite equal to mutton, Our sailors
eat it with relish, and 1 llave no doubt that it could be salted, preserved,
shipped in casks, and soon filld a market. As it now Hes rottillg on the
fields, the smell is most offellsive, and as one of the slaughter pens is
immediatelynear the viUage, tbe rnarvel is t1Jat it has not bred a con·
tagious disease.


In sorne places where these seals have been thus killed, alld the .$lar·
casses aUowe<l to rot for many years, 1 shoul<l thillk tIte soil woulQ be
as valuable a fertilizer as guano. The gl'eat rank grass grows aboye
tllese slaughter places in rieh luxuriance. As baHast it lIlight pay to
transport to tlle southerll ports.


'Ve found quite a large lot of skins in this "Southwest Eay" house,
and the guide assured lIS that the building hall been full and emptied
about a month before, t11e skins having been carried OH board a steamer.


The skins were packed in piles with tIle fuI' turne<1 inwards, amI salt
put in between eaeh skin. After being allowed to remain awhile, they
are taken np, refolded, amI with fresh salt made ready for shipment.


A large surf boat, made of tbe skins oI' the sea·lioll, is uscd to carry
them out to the yessels.


On our return \Ve passed by a lake of beautifu1 cIear, cold water, fl'~!n
which the natives obtain the supply for their village-llearly a Hule
distant. Half of tbis distallce the.r- carry it in hoats by water. When
Sto Panl Is1and alld its immense sonrce of income is properly cared for
by our govermnent, un aqtleduct of simple COllstructioll should be built
to cOllvey this water to the town.


Tbere was no sehool worth the llame on the island. Tlle Hussian
foreman of one 01' tlle traders professed to call a class of fiye 01' six
together at irregular honrs; but 1 found he t110ught unt litt1e 01' it, alld

the natives regarded it of still less valué. They asked for schools and
teachers earnestly.


The priest who ofiiciates in a neatly-built church reeeives one hundred
and thirty dollars pe1' annum. He is not in orders, aud hardly ranks as
a deacon in the church. The priest from Oumlaski occasionally comes
up and admiuisters the sacramento


The ehiets, of whom there are t\VO, get forty dollars a month extra pay,
and the workmen are divided into three classes of different degrees of
expertness 01' character, 'I'hieving and misdemeanors other than drunk-
enness are uuknown among tbe Alentes.


On our retnrn we fonnd our guide greatly a~;,itatedat the prospect 01'
puuisluneut, which he feared he would receive from tbe United States
offlcials on the island for showing us the path over to the remote salt-
house. We assured him that his fears were groundless, but this did not
quiet bis anxieties,


There were sorne cattle and sheep on the island, and we found good
graziug; plenty of grass as far as we went, 01' could see. There are no
trees, aud the hills are not generally steep. A few of the highest, at
a distance, 1 shoukl saJT were not over two thousand feet high. They
appeared covered with verdure to tbeir tops. The cattle and sheep are
reported as doiug well,


l?UTURE l"IANAGK\IENT üF THE FUl~-SEAL FISHERIES.
The whole management of these islands, and the obtaining from the


fur seal fisheries a handsome income by our govermnent, is a very simple
affair, One eapable and houest man with 011e 01' two assistants on each
of the two islands, and a force of a dozen men well armed, under fixed
regulations, forbidding the killing of over 011e hundred and fifty thou-
sand seals anuually, restricting the killing for the present to th« Aleutes,
payiug them a liberal compensation, providing for the sale of tlie skins
either on the island, at San Francisco, 01' New York, and exacting se-
vere penalties for all violations of the law, would regulate it.


The ofñcer in eharge should be a flrstclass man, with a liberal salary
aud under heavy bonds, as his life will be an isolated 011e and his temp-
tations to dishonesty great.


The proposal to lease the islands has the objeetiou tbat it revives
the old fur company monopolies, and our people will not be likely to
tolerate this ; aud as it will require the same amOUllt of governmelltal
watchfullless alld conseqnellt expense to proteet t11e lessors in t11eir
rights, as it wouId for the government to manage the C011ce1'n itself, it
woultl seem practical econOlHY fol' our goverllmellt to take charge of the
business. Last spring the Chamber oí' Commeree at San Francisco
appointed.a committee to ascertain t11e facts in relation to t11e fuI' seal
fisheries of Alaska, and reporto This report so plainly gives the view
,vhieh is taken b;y a large number of people in California that 1 inclose
it. See Appendix U.


A 1etter from Adolph lVluller, on the prices for furs ruling in San
Franeisco 1ast October, 1 appencl, 0, though other fnrriers assllred me
that MI'. l\1:uller's prices were altogether too low.


But to resume my narrative. Ün Suuday the 10th, we buried on1'
three sailors, Hicl:.ard I~ivingstoll, Lewis Garlipp, and Jo1m Beck, with
funeral honors, on the island. Tbe last rites had har<lly beea celebrated
before threc Aleutes, of their O\vn accord, brought forward duee tan
wooden crosses, and placed one at t11e head of each of tIle graves.


That afternoon we held a talk with the Alelltes, in t11e presellce of thc
officers of the islalld and of the steamer, and were cOllfi1'med in a cou-
c1usioll wIlich we had arrived at long sillce in our interconrse with In-
dians, namely, that they wi11 not state any of their grievances in public




8 FUR-8EAL FI8HERIE8 or ALA8KA.
in presence oí the powers that. are set over them. 1II this they re-
semble most poor and dependent people.


In the prívate interviews held with them two days before, ñve of the
Aleutes complained that they had been brought from Kodiack Island by
the agent, 01' one of the firms on the island, for a limited period ; that
the contract had expired sorne time sinee, but that the firm liad since
placed a hundred do11ars each to their credit, and now claimed to hold
them another year against their will. Lieutenant Mast, commanding
St. Paul and Sto George Islands, having heard of this statement through
Colonel Wicker, in a letter to the colonel denied it, aud declared that
the Kodiack nativos had acquiesced in the arrangemeut.


VESSELS SAILING FOR SANDWICH ISLANDS.


One of the men complained that he had been shipped as a sailor to
come to these islands, and return home, but that when he arrived
here the vessel sailed for the Sandwich Islands, where he did not wish
to go. This last statement was not denied by any one presento If
our steamer could have stopped at Kodiack on our way home, I would
have asked permission to take this man home, and have arranged the
best I could for the others, As it was, I could only eommend them to
the considerate care of the United States officers on the ísland,


This meeting, as well as the burial service of the sailors, was held
in the open airo The sun was shíning elearly, and the weather was so
mild half of the offlcers and men had no overcoats, and yet it was the
10th of October, and we were on an island in the Behring Sea.


CITIZEN ALEUTES.


As we were walking down to the shore to embark, a nmnber of the
chiefs and head men of the Aleutes gathered around me, and in private
asked me about our form of government, and whether it was true "that
a11 men were free and equal," and whether they would be allowed to
vote for the President, 01' the "emperor," as they called him, thinking of
their former Russian goverument, I said yes, 1 hoped so. They shook
my hand warmly, and when we 1eft the shore gave us three slow but
very loud cheers, which our officers and men returned with a will,


'Ve then sailed for the "Northeast Point," fifteen miles away, to make
the final examination of the skins stored in that salt-house, AH along
this eastern shore, as on the western, which we liad passed the day be-
fore, myriads of fur-seals were congregated, so that we could not but
conclude there was a large million and a half on the island. The surf
ran high as we landed, and the men, remembering their 108s 01' the
day before, shook their heads doubtingly as they dashed us through it.
We thought more about the heavy taxes of the people, and whether-
the Aleutes, 01' our officers on the island, were the more accurate in
counting seal-skins, We carefu11y measured the piles of skins in the
salt-house, counted up the figures, and fonnd the Aleutes were right.
There were over sixty thousalld skins on the island.


As if l'eluctant to leave the three brave saHors wIto had sacrificed
theil' liyes to duty, our good ship Lincoln "missed stays," tllrlled her
face to tIte island, remained immoveable fol' a few minutes and tllen
slowly obeying hel' helrn, steamed off toward our home on the othel'
side of the republic, six thousand miles away.

The committee appointed by the Chamber of Cornmerce, on the 17th of Fehruary, 1869,


to consider what legislution h;r Congress is necessary to protect the fur seal trude of the
islauds withiu the Territory of Alaska, have hnd the same under cousiderutiou, and beg
leave to subuiit the following report :


Your conurrittee find that the Russian-American FuI' Company reported to have taken,
during the years 1866 uud 1867, from the ialands 011' Unalaska, Omega, Sto Michael,
Atkha, Al tou, Kudiak, aud Cook's Inlet, 7,970 muskrata, 558 lyux, 6,738 marteus, 2:¿ü
bears, 18,476 beavers, 6,738 foxes, 2,765 laud otters, aud :~,905 seu-otters, which we have
valued at $:{50,OOO. They took from the islauds of Sto Paul and St. George 1:37,943 fur
seals and 3,657 foxes, which we have also valued at $900,000, based upon the admissiou
of those who are largely interested in the fuI' trade, and upon the recent sales in the
EurolJean markets. vVe fiud, then, the total value of the furs taken by the Rllssian-
American Fur CompallY frOlll the islallds named dllriug the years 1866 anu 1867 to he
$1,250,000, an annual average of $625,000; hesides, the seal oil, in the opinion of your
cOillmittee, is woI'th, at t,he very lowest estímate, $75,000 per aunurn after leavin~ seals
enough to supply fÍJod 1'01' the uati ves, to say nothing about the very rich fertilizin~
deposits fi'om the decomposeu bones and Hesh of the seals for more than forty years.
. \Ve bave beell informed b~' more disinterested testimol1Y that tbese furs are wortb
more money, hut we have heen gnided by those wllo are interested, and you wi11 ob-
serve that, nnder tIle 1JI0st favorahle uspect, this is a very important trade, whieb can
doubtless he increased lll)(ler American enterprise amI fair competition without dimin-
ishing the number of the fur-bearing allimals.


The fnr trade is the 01l1y wealth of tIte country at present available, aud shoul<1,
therefore, be careflllly guanled, amI left open to aH American vessels nnder proper re-
strictions tQ eneourage tIle development of' other i1lterests. The fis1leries, for instance,
are very extensive, and a voyage for fllrs, if ummccessfnl, migbt prove proíltahle on the
fisIling hallks. The fnr trade is tbe stimulant to go tbere, and once tbere other inter-
ests would attract attention. But withont some ilHlucemellt ship-masters wonM Ilanlly
undertake the hazanls 01' such a tedious voyage, amI often a very perilons one.


Tbe protection of the fuI' seals amI ot1ler fllr-bearing animals can be affordel1 with-
out any such mouopoly as is proposml by tbe bi11 reported to have passed COllgress.


So fur as we have heen ahle to learn fuI' seals only l'equire special protectioll, though
some provision i8 necessary to prevent the nse of fil'e-arms in taking sea otters, alJ(l to
define the seasons for taking any anÜ a11 fur-bearing allimals. Fire-arms must not he
useel, eith"r in killillg seals, for they wi11 leave alld not return; nol' will it do to kill
thelll lIear their rookeries, where tbe carcass would be exposed, for the same resnlt
would follow. 'rIley JIIust he driven in the cool of tbe evening to the interior, and
takell with cluhs the following morning, ",itb as little noise as possible.


1'1Ie seals arrinl at the islallds early in t11e spring, and should llot be illterfered with
uutil tlle cnd uf tIte 1Jl'ee(lillg season-tl1e last 01' sumiller 01' the beginllillg 01' útll.
The sealing seasoll should, therefl)re, cornmence in Septelllber, anu continue until they
leave, early in Novemuer. Tlle olll~' legislation, therefOl'e, uecessary is to define the months

10 FUR-SEAL FISHERIES OF ALASKA.
in which seals may be taken, to prohibít the use of fire-arms on the islauds 01' upon
the waters adjacent, and to prohibit the killing of females at allY season of the year
and the young under one year old.


\Vith such good regulations and restrictiona we can see no good reason for limiting
the uumber of" seals that may be taken annualy to one hundred thousand (100,000) as
proposed. The limit creates a monopoly, which appears to be the objec t of the bill
alluded too If more than one hundred thousand (100,000) males over one year old can be
taken, W11~T not a110w it, for we canuot see how it would diminish the seals, Besides,
it is much easier to enforce a law proteeting the young and the females with cornpe-
titiou than without it. An inspector, with only one company to deal with, would be
less.apt to attend strietly to his dnties than if he had the eye of a large fieet of vessels
upon him, If competition were allowed, all would be interested in haviug the Iaw
complied with; but, monopolize the trade, and everv vessel not iuterested, visiting
thOS8 waters, would have to be watched, which would be almost imposaible, and woultl
nse ill-got means, if any opportunity offered, of taking furs wíthout sparing either the
youug 01' the females. Jf there were no opportunity, how easv it would be to fire guns
in the vicinity of the islands to frighten away the seals ; ami who doubts the result ~


The seals originally frequented the islands of Behring aud Copper, still uurler the
jurisdictiou of Rnssia, and were driven from them to the islauds of Sto Paul and St.
George by some such action as we have iudicated, aud might returu 01' go elsewhere if
disturbed in their present rookeries. .


T11e bill before Congress (reported to have becomc a law) prohibits the use of fire-
arms, and killing females, and males less than one year old, undel' regulations to be
made by the Secretary of the Treasnry. But it provides that the Secretary shall divide
the isluud of Sto Paul iuto three sections aud St. George into one section, and that the
exclusive right of taking seals from either section for a term of years shall be sold to
the highest bidder, desiguat.ing, too, what elass of bídders shall have the rigbts to com-
pete for this trade, viz: managing owners of American vessels, and only those whom
the Secretary may deern comptent to fulfill their en~agcments. Now, it is well known
that there are four organized companies, and that one 01' aU of them have made con-
tracts with the 11atives for a period of three years. The Secretary wonld be virtllally
limited, Ululer the tel'ms of the bill, to consider their bids, because tIJey would be
deemed more competent to carry out t11eil' contracts.


"Ve haYf~ ascertained, however, that Americans can easily learn in a very short time
ho", to take seals as we11 as the natives; but if the hill in qnestion becomes a law, tho
Secretary would very likely look to existing contracts ",ith the natives, amI an act of
Congress wouM virtuaUy give the monopoly of tIle fuI' trade of the islands of Alaska
to a single company, 01', what we rather suspect, fonr companies in comhination. The
eifect would be to render the tl'aae of no value to San Francisco 01' any other American
port. It wouId give a few individuals t1le control of the market of furs who conlel, at
pleasure, increasc the cost to consumers.


The mauufacturing 1ll0nopoIy has heretofore been enjoyed by parties in England,
through a permancut arrangement made many years ago with the Russian-American
FuI' Company, to purchase a11 their fuI' seal-skins taken from year to year. This same
condition would very likely continue with the lessees of the gOVfwnment, hoth on
account of their superior skill in manufactllring, acqnired by long expericllcc throllgh
the arrangement alluded to, and hecause monopolists can afford to paya higlwr price
for the skins. The skins \Vonld then, in alllikelihood, be shipped directly to Ellgland
01' to this port only in transit, and no opportunity oifered to thc cnterprise and skiU of
our citizens to engage in the manufacturc of such luxllries upon which enormous profits
are alwa.vs realizea. \Ve must SUblllit to have them exported and to pay foreign labor
a large profit upon aU we consume.


\Ve have been toM that we have not the skill to manufacture fnr seal-skins in this
eountry, which can only be exported to find a market. The fact is, we bave IUld no
opportunity to acqnire skill during the monopoly enjoyed in England through the ar-
rangemeut with the Russian-American FuI' Company. The same result will again fol-
low if the government leases the islands, amI no market wiU be found in tho United
States, andwe will he obliged to import manufactnred ful's fl'om EngIand at a heavf
cost and expense, besides the addition of our import duty.


View this as we may, we must feel the ill eifects of such a policy; and for what pur-
pose J! '1'0 enrich a few and keep back the developmellt of the eountry for an inliefinite
periodo TIH\ only inducement now to go thel'e is tbe interest in question; amI, if open
to competitioll, many vessels wiU be fitted out at this and other ports, amI the furs in
retnrn exposed for sale in our home markets, and eventua11y the entire and very im-
portallt trade of tbat eOllutry wiU be enjoyed b~T our own citizells. \Ve are, therefore,
deeply interested in securing the passage of a law·allowiug public competition, which
can be done nuder instructions amply protecting the seals.


The Territory of Alaska was acquired by pnrchase at a cost of $7,000,000 to tlle fecl-
eral government, and we do not deem it just to oul' citizells genemlly to give a single
company, 01' any number of compallies, the control of this trade, valucd at $700,000

uuuually, which, in onr judgrnent, can easily be increased double the amount. This
trade is really the key to the whole countrv, and controls the fur trade 011 the main-
laud, which is also very valuable, and about which we have said nothing. The object
of our govcrnment should be to develop the country, ano to encourage our citizens to
go there, by u.ll meaná in its power ; aud the unrestricted competition in this trade wonld
best promote that object ; any other policy would ret.ard 01' preveut all enterprises con-
uected with Aluska, We recommend, then, the aholition of all restrictions not neces-
sary to protect the young and the female seals ; and with this end in view we submit,
as a part of this report., t.he draft of a hill which will afford ample protection-at t.lie
same time open trade to American enterprise and industry.


We regret, in couclusion, that our Iimited time would not allow an extended inquiry
iute the uudeveloped resources of Alaska; though, from the incidental knowledge
whir-h we havo acquirr-d in our investigations relative to the fur trade of our islands,
we are persuaded that its resources are far more extensive and important than gener-
ally believed, We t.hiuk that the government ought to extend its aid to encourage
ernigration ; and we therefore recommeud the Chamhcr to evoke Congress to establish,
at an enrly day, a territorial government ayer that country. And we would also ad-
vise the appointrnent of another committee to collect information, and to report as soon
as convenient., for the pllrpose of attracting puhlic attention to a territory which, if
properly devcloped, will prove to be a very valuable aoquiaitíon.


The report is signed bv the committee, consisting of J. H. Wise, C. T. Fay, L. Ever-
diug, l. P. Rankin, and Washington Bartlett, The report was received and the com-
mittee discharged.

informatiou ou the snbject, to the best of my knowledge aud hclief.


The collection of fnrs at Alaska and the Aleutian islands so far has been very lim-
ited, on accouut of the searcity of populatioll-thB nocessities of the natives being few
and easily supplied. This immense territory, extending frolll (the 56th to the 76th par-
aIlel) Fort 'Yrangle to Kotzehue Sonnd, is so full of fllr-heal'ing allimals th:~t, in the
course of a fewshort years, an enterprising white population wi11 fiud profitahle. em-
plo,)'lllent in developing its great and, at the present, llnknown wealth. The fuI' trade
of this territory, when properly prosecuted hy competent parties, ",i11 yield boundless
wealth, alld \Vill amount to millions llpon lllillions in the aggregate, increasillg from

Dry fur seals from Cape Flatteryare full as good as those frorn St. Paul's aud StO

N. .B. FuI' seals have since declined in Enrope considerably, 15 shillings sterling
being the outside Iimit for bttying.


b, In March, 1869, 548 sea otter were sold and realized at the London sales, on an av-

offered for sale, but most of t.hern were withdrawn on account of the low.prices ruliug.
Sea otter are very Iow at present; $20 to $25, gold, per skin is already a lurge price to
pay for it. The Old Russiau Fur Company have sold the balance of sea ottcr on hand
(7000 skins) at St. Petersburg, and in consequence the Russian gcvernment has enacted
a law prohibiting the importation of sea otters; hence the decline iu Londou and Leip-

The Secretary of War has the honor to submit to the House of Rep-

'I'erritory of Wyoming, relative to the establishment of an ordnance
depot at Cheyenne, in saíd 'I'erritory, and to invite attention to the report

branch United States arsenal at Cheyenne, Wyoming.


This measure has been recommended by MaJor General Dyer, Chief

2 ORDNANCE DEPOT AT CHEYENNE.


OGDNANCE OFFICE, 'VAR DEPART:MENT,
lVashington, Eebruam; 9, 1870.


SIR: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt, from your office,
of the letter of Ron. J. A. Campbell, governor oí' Wyoming 'I'erritory,
npon the subject of the establishment of an ordnance depot at Chey-
enne, and in reply, beg leave to report :


In the annual reports of tbis bureau for tbe years 1867 aud 1868, 1 -
had the honor to recommend that an appropriation be made for the es-
tablishment of a depot of supply and repair at some suitable point in
the Indian eountry between the Missouri and the Roeky Mountains ;
but no actíon was taken by Congress upon the subject.


On the 21st of May, 1869, upon the recommendation of Major General
C. C. Augur, commanding the department of the Platte, instructions
were issued from this bureau to Lieutenant Isaac W. Maclay, chief ord-
nance officer department oí' the Platte, to "take measures for eousoli-
dating the ordnance depots at Omaha and Fort D. A. Russell, by remov-
ing to the latter place the ordnance now [then] in yonr [his] charge at
Omaha, as 800n as Major General Augur shall authorize you [him] to do
so." He was also instructed to provide means at that post "to repair
and keep in orcler the arms, &c., issued in the department,' and to em-
ploy tbe neeessary mechanies for that purpose.


In my annual report for the year 1869 1 again advert to this subject,
and recornmend that an appropríation be granted for establishing a smnll
perrnanent ordnance depot at 01' beyond Cheyenne.


The necessity for the establishment 01' a suitable depot on the extremé
frontier is apparent, It is a matter both 01' convcnience and economy,
and I have the honor to recomrnend that it be specially brought to the
attention of Congress,


The letter of Governor Campbell is herewith retnrned,

'I'here is no money now on hand that can be used to pay the amounts

2 APPROPRIATIONS FOR ROUSE OF CORRECTION FOR BOYS.


• WASHINGTON, Febr'ltwry 4, 1870.
SIR: At a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the House of Corree-


tion yesterday, 1 was directed to address a eommunícatíon to you, re-
spectfully requesting that JOU would cause a portion of the government
farm in tbe District to be set off to the said board for the use of the
House of Correction, and that you further cause all persons 1l0W occu-
pying said farm, 01' that portion thereof which sha11 be assigned to the
said board, to be removed therefrom, and the said board, 01' the super-
intendent of said iustitution, to be put in possession of their dwellings
01' shanties, 1 beg leave to state that there are a number of Irish and
colored people living upon the farm, of idle habits, and who llave no
apparent means of support, it not being kuowntha tthey perform any
labor; such a population is a very improper one to be in the near vi-
cinity of a reformatory school,


1 have the honor to be your obedient servant,
N. SARGENT,


President of tite Board of Trustees House of Correction,
N. B.-lt is proper that 1 should add that we have at length got the


House of Correction organized and in operation ; tbat two boys have
been sent there, the courts informed that we are prepared to receive a
limited number, and we have reason to expect that number will soon be
sent, But our funds are nearly if not quite exhausted, and unless
Oongress shall deem it expedient to make an appropriation to meet our
necessary expenses, we shall be compelled to dismiss the superintendent,
send the boys back to the sehool in which they have been brought np-
the street school-and give up our benevolent enterprise. It is impos-
sible for us to go on without funds.


Very truly,
N. SARGENT, President, &0.

Secretary of the Interior.

2 APPROPRIATION FOR FORT BERTIIOLD INDIAN AGENCY.


These vouehers, with two exceptions, are for serviccs rendered and
supplies furnished prior to the 1st oí' -Iuly, 18üB. Others of a Iike char-
acter, issued by tbe late agent subsequently to that date, llave been
presented to this office and paid out of the present year's appropríatíon
for the Indians of said agency. Iu paying those last referred to, said
appropriatíou was reduced to such an extent that therc is at present
only a sufficient amount of money on hand to carry ou the agency to
the end of the eurrent fiscal yeal'; and it is therefore impossible for this
o:ftice to pay any portion of the unpaid vouchers,


Many of these vouchers are for services rendered as employés at said
agency. They have been exarnined and approved by the honorable
John A. Burbank, governor, and ex-offício superintcndcnt of ludian
affaírs for Dakota, ami paymont thereof has been reeommended by him.
1 have no doubt that the services were actually rendered as stated; and
from the statement of the late agent, and the best information upon the
subject that this office can obtain, 1 am also satisfied that the supplies
nanred in the other vouchers were furnished in good faith, and that
tbey were necessary for the good 01' tbe service.


1 herewith inelose a list oí" the unpaid vouchers issued by late Agent
Wilkínson, showing the llames of t110 persons who rendered serviees
and furnished supplies, and on what amouut each voncher was issued,
and the amount thereof, together with copies of certain papers relativo
to the matter, and respecttully recommeud that the same be snhmitted
to Congress for its action, aud with the view of liavíug the necessary
funds appropriated to pay off this outstauding iudebteduess.

6 APPROPRIATION POR FORT BERTHOLD INDIAN AGENCY.
Accouut for furuishing and delivering at Fort Berthold 01' Upper Mis-


souri ageucy, two hundred (~OO) tous 01' hay, amounting to $4,000. (See
article 01' agreement between late Agent. Wilkinson and 2\1c881'8. Durfee
& Peck, herewith iucloscd.)


Voucher 1'01' one .. chest carpeutera' tools, nmouuting to $1.,)0, making
a total of 848,98;") ~l.


With refereuce to the laborers' vouchers, 1 would say that it has beeu
represented to me, and 1 have good reason to believe, tliat Messrs. Dur-
fce & Peck furnislied eiuployés at Upper Missouri agcney with clot.h-
iug, aud sucli otlier articles as they needed from time to time, ou credit,
(employés not having been paid 1'01' their service.) aud when AgentWil-
kinson made his final settlemeut with bis employés, Messrs. Durfee &
Peck took their vouchers ut their face, aud after settliug' tlieir claims
1'01' goods sold, paid the "balance due them in iuouey.


With refereuce to the acconnt for furuishing hay, 1 would state thut
this oflice has endeavored to investigate as to its justness, aud from the
best information to be readily obtained, 1 thin k that, cousidering the fact
that grass is scarcer the further up the river we go, and that it is there-
fore more difflcnlt and expensive to make and deliver hay, and consid
ering also the terms npon which tho army contract for hay at Fort Hice
was let the present year, the account in questíon is jnst and reasouuble,


OIl taking charge 01' this superintendeucy, 1 found the fínancial affairs
of a number of the agencies in a YCl',y bad condition, aud that a large in-
debtedness had been incurred, as indicaterl h,Y the larg« number 01'
elaims presented at this offíce.


1 have cudeavored, as far as IYHS practicable, ro collect aud forward
these vouchers anel evidenees oí' indebteduess of evcrv description, (t·x.-
cept t1108e approved by General Harney.) to your office 1'01' paYIIH'llt,
with a víew of gettiug the superintendcncv out of debt.


As much depende upon a prompt tulfillmcut of eoutracts in a couutry
like this, where laborers are extremely scarce, aud in mauy cases 11al'd1y
to be obtailled on auy tel'lllS, it is 1ll,Y wish alld illtentioll to so Ulanag(~
the business 01' t11e snperintendellcy, tllat persons performing sel'Yict' 01'
fnrnishing articles for tIle bellefit of the agencies will fcel au assurallce
that tlley will be able, \Yithout Ullllecessary (Ielay, to co11ect what is
justly due tIlem.


1 would 1ll0St respectfully l'eCOllllllend tIlat the vonchers amI aCCouHts
sublllitted herewith be paid by draft issne<1 in üwor of ]\[eSSl':-1. Dnrfee
& Peck, aud seut to tlle care of this ofticC'. Bnt in case the fllllds at

SIR: 1 have the honor to transmit berewith a copy of a communica-
tion dated tbe 8th instant, from the Commissioner oflndian Affairs, with
the papers therein referred to, relative to the claim of S. E. Ward for
goods issued to Indians at or in the vicinity of Fort Laramie, in 1868,

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,
OFFICE OF INDIAN AFFAIRS,


Washington, D. C., February 8, 1870.
SIR: 1 have the honor to inclose, herewith, copies oí certain papers


relatíve to a claim of S. E. Ward for goods issued to lndians at or in
the vicinity of Fort Laramie in 1868, under instrnctions of the Indian
Peace Commission.


From the papers in thís case 1 think there can be no doubt of the
justness of Mr, Ward's elaim; but, as there is no money at the disposal
oí the department applicable to ths payment of indebtedness incurred
by saíd commission, no steps can be taken by this office to have the
claim in question paid,




2 S. E. WARD.


I, therefore, respectfully recommend that the matter be submitted to
Congress, with the view of having the sum of $8,966 90 appropriated
for the payment of said claim.


Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
E. S. P ARKER.

Notary Publico


*" *" *" Also find inclosed one lndian aceount amounting to
$8,966 90, which I am directed by MI'. Ward to send you for col1ection.
The amount overruns the amount authorized by the letter of tbe ludian
Cornmission, but General Slemmer authorized me to make the issue.
General Slemmer died before be approved the account, as the accounts
were all made out for his approval a few days before his death ; he died
suddenly, having gone to bed in apparent good health; he was a corpse
befare one o'clock in the morning; said to have died with disease of the
heart, I hope tbere will be no difficulty in collecting the account, as 1
have attached my affidavit, togetber witb ínterpreter's, and a certificate
of Colonel R. B. 1\fcKibbin, who was, a part of the time, in eommand of
the post, and was always present at the distributiou of these goods to
the Indians, We have a new commanding offieer, General F. F. Flint,
colonel of the Fourth Infantry. He is an officer of the old school, and
formerly of tbe Sixth Iufautry, an aocomplished gentleman, and a supe-
rior soldier. We are very much pleased with him, and I real1y feel like
one relieved out of the penitentiary. Colouel Dye has 110t yet received
his New York Herald. Could you have it sent to Fort Fetterrnan, as
he has been sent up there ~


Yours, truly, W. G. BULLOOK.


STo PA UL, June 14, 1869.
SIR: Herewitb I return the S. E. Ward vouchers approved, From


my knowledge of the character of Mr, W ard, and of his agent, Mr. Bul-
loek, takeu in connection with the fact that the account is approved by
the cornmanding offieer of the post of Fort Laramie, 1 can have no doubt
of the correctness of the account.




s. E. WARD. 7
When the order to furnish these goods was given, it was supposed


that the account would stand upon the same footing and be paid out of
the same appropriation as the other accounts made by the commission.
We had no money at that time and paid for everything in vouchers,
by direction of the Committees on ludian Affairs in the two houses of
Congress. The act of J uly, 1868, appropriated sufficient money to pay all
expenses incurred bythe commission; but also províded in substancethat
any amount remaining of the money appropriated by that clause of the
bill, after paying these expenses, should be applied to carrying into
effect the policy and stipulations of the commission. This money was
placed at the disposal of General Sherman. General Sherman called
for and was furnished by me with a schedule of all indebtedness known
to have been incurred through the commission and remaining unpaid.
No information had been received by me at that time, nor indeed ever
before the reception of your letter and the account, that Mr, Ward had
furnished any goods under that order. The result is, that the money
that has been appropriated by Congress to pay such accounts has all
been expended in subsisting aud clothing Indians, and l kl10W of no
appropriation at the disposal of the department now out of which this
aCCOUl1t can be paid. It will not do to pay it out of the $22,000 ap-
propriated to pay audited vouehers of the commission until the vouchers
and accounts specially estimated for are paid, 1t seems to me the ac-
count must stand as it is until Oongress passes another appropriation
bill, and appropriates money to pay this account.


I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

2 SAVANNAH RIVER.


TREASURY DEPART~IENT,
Febructry 9, 1870.


SIR: 'I'he aecompanying communication, relativo to the improvements
made in Savannah River at the cost of the city government, as stated
by the Hon. E. C. Anderson, is referred to your department, as this de-
partment Iearns that information upon the subject of the clearing of
this river has just been called for by a resolution of the House 01' Rep-
resentatives.


1 am, very respectfully,
GEO. S. BOUTWELL,


Secrctary 01 Treaeuru.
Hon. "VVl\1. vV. BELKNAP,


Secretat·y 01 War.


UNITED STA'rEs CüAST SURVEY OFFICE,
Washington, January 25, 1870.
Sn~: By authoríty of the superíutcndent, and at the request 01' Hon.


E. C. Anderson, late mayor 01' Savannah, 1 beg leave respectfully to
submit to you a statement relative to the improvemeuts in Savauuah
River, which have been made at the cost 01' the city of Savanuah.from
1865 to 1869, during the period of the mayoralty 01' 1\11'. Anderson. .


In 1865, immediately aftor the close 01' tho war, a re-survey of the
Savannah River, from the ocean to the city, was made by theCoast Sur-
vey, from which it was shown that but oigllt feet at mean low water,
and fourteen feet at mean high water, could be takeu over the bars be-
low the eity, irrespective 01' the obstruotions placed during the war.
These obstructions have apparently had no effect upon the chaunels and
bars of the river, except at their immediate localíty.


By correspoudenee with this office, and other meaus, the authorities
of Savannah endeavored to induce the government to undertake the
needed deepeuing of the channel over the bars. The only action, to our
knowJedge, taken by the government, was to make a contract with Henry
S. Wells, of New York, to remove the obstructions placed duriug the war.
This work was but partial1y executed, and I uuderstand the contraet is
still ali ve, but not enforced.


'I'he government taking no action, the city of Savaunah, uulike all
other southem cities, with a wise liberality under the energetie lead of
its mayor, undertook itself the work 01' deepeuing and straightening
the ehannel from the city to the mouth of the river, aud after the skill-
fuI expenditure of about $120,000, has succeeded in opeuing a channel
by which twelve feet at mean Iow, and eighteeu feet at mean high water
ean be carried up to the city. T'hese depths, however, can be maintaiued
only by further improvemeuts of a more permaneut character, and givíug
sueh depth to the channel as will euable vessels which can eross the
outer bar going direet to the city. 'I'his depth iR niueteen feet at mean
Iow, and twenty-six feet at mean higli water.


The amount required for this purpose will probably not exceed $200,000.
The smal1 city of Savanuah, with an amount of taxable real estate 01'
less tban $10,000,000 when this work was begun, has shown a liberality
wortby 01' al1 praise, and whieh should sbame her richer sister cities of
tbe Soutb, not one of wIlicIl has expended a dallar, as fiu' as tIlis office
is inforllled, towards tIle improvemellt of its harbor.


The tonnage freighting at SavannaIl is owned almost exclusively at
the Nortb, and tIle sbip-owners are -as <leeply interested in this improve-
ment as even Savannah itself.




C. P. P ATTERSON,
Hyc1rographic Inspector' Coast SUrl,ey.


SAVANNAH RIYER.


The official roturns show that for the year ending .Iune 30, ISü!), tho
total of exports coastwise, from Sava.nnah, was $:W,304:,996; foroigu,
$22,031,498. Total exporta, $4:8,336,494. Amonnt 01' tonnage, Ameri-
can, 987,51:3.53; foreign, 142,321.31. Total tonnage, 1,129,834.84, em-
ploying 22,101 men; aud these amounts must increase with immens«
rapidity, as the railroad connections with the wliole of our great interior.
now under construction, are ñnished.


By the advised improvernents in the river, all vessels can go direct te>
Savannah, and be saved the immense tax for lightering imposecl when
the vessels are obliged to lie at anchor many miles below the city.


1 know of no work on our seaboard where so small a sum as $200,000
can be spent to so great an advantage to the shipping and other com-
mercial iuterests of the country as in making the improvements asked
for in the Savannah nivel'; and a city which has, under immense diffl-
culties, done its duty so manfully, richly de serves, and should receivc,
sorne recognition from the govemment,


Yours, respectfully,


ROll. GEORGE S. BOUTWELL,

one hundred aud twenty-five transient vessels visited the harhor.


3. Tbat it Is stated by the light-house inspector 01' the district that
the establishment of the proposed light would enahle vesseis to enter
at night, and use the anchorage as a safe harbor of retuge, which he
thinks would be specially useful to navigators who are canglit in Mas-
saehusetts Bay in easterly gales. A copy 01' the report 01' the Iight-house
inspector is hereto appended, marked B.


4. 'I'he accompanying chart 01' the locality shows the directious 01' the
channels, depth 01' water, &c., from which it will be seeu that there is
at present a day beacou close to Duxbnry piel', aud that the two lights on
Gurnet Point (the outer northern poiut 01' the harbor) are distaut less
than two and a half miles.


The resolution 01' the House 01' Representatives and the two petitions
which accornpanied it are herewith returned.


Very respectfully,
VV. B. SHUBHIOK, Chairman.

OFFICE LIGIlT-HOUSE ENGINEER,


B08tOJl, Fcu},1Jar.1J 7, uno.
SIR: 1 herewith inclose an estimate for an iron screw-pile light-house,


with keeper's dwelling 01' wood, proposed 1'01' tho shoal at the site of
Duxbury beacon, Plymouth Harbor, to be in a11 respeeh;; aboye grouud,
Iike the Narrows light-llouse, Boston Harbar; the pi les to be thirty feet
long and to stand ten feet in the shoal, in ahout (me foot water at mean
low water, the mean rise and faU 01' tide being ten feet. The shoal all
around the beacon consists of hard granite, into which a pointed iron rod
could not be torced with nippers to a depth 01' more than one foot,
No ledge was encountered, and none appears in the viciuity nor exists
in the contiguous channel, which has a depth 01' from eight to ten fath-
oms, at low water. I was informed by Captain Tower and by several
masters of vessels of tbe port that the shoal has not changed notice-
ably within the last twenty years, and never to t11eir knowle<lge.


Tbe structure contemplated by the estimate has seYen fOllndation piles
01' wrought iron, six inches diameter, forming a hexagon aronnd t11e
central pile. each face being fifteen feet from center 01' piles. The ten-
sion bars 01' the Narrows light-honse were originally set on1y between
the cap bands and bands half way from these to 1,he gronnd, leaving the
lower section without any staying whatever.


In 1857, cast·iron bands with three feet flanges to rest on 1,lle ground,
and clamp fianges with lugs to receiye 4-inch by 4-inch iron girders aH




HARBORS IN MASSACHUSETTS. 3
around, and from each corner to the central pile, were added to the strue-
ture, ami the present estirnate provides for a similar arrangement.


'I'he strncture must be guarded from running ice, which strikes across
this point with rnuch force on the ebb tide, by a triangular ice-breaker,
of timber and stone, in erib-work, sheathed and covered with oak plank
to be thirty feet long on sides and eighteen feet high.


'I'lie northwesterly corner of the stone beacon has been damaged by
running ice. lt is proposed to take the stones of the beacon for the ice-
breakel'.


In the certainty expressed by those acquainted with the site as to the
nature of the shoal, and in my own conviction on the point, 1 did not
consider more careful tests as immediately neeessary. Borings at varíous
poiuts of the shoal will precede speciñcations for the work.

B.
OFFICE LIGIIT-HOUSE INSPECTOR,


Boston, February 8, 1870.
SIR: In reply to your Ietter of the 21st ultimo, I respectful1y report


that I am quite familiar with the harbor oí' Plyinouth from Gurnet Point
inward, and am decidedly of the opinion that a harbor 01' bug light from
Duxbury piel' would be very advautageous to the trade of Duxbury
and Kingston, as set forth by the petítioners, and that the Cow Yard,
soóalled, would, with the aid of such a light, become a, good harbor of
refuge to vesscls of a large class,


The channel between buoys No. 5 and 8, as laid clown upon the Coast
Survey- chart, published in 1857, has become a little narrow ; otherwise
tbe sonndings as given. upon the chart do not appear to have materially
aItered.


There are ninety-two vessels owned in the ports of Plymouth, Dux"
bnry, and Kingston, the aggregate tonnage of which is 4,~54 tons, and
about one hundred and fifty transient vessels entered those ports during
the past year laden with coal, iron, lumber, plaster, &c.


It is to be added tbat this harbar is very useful in easterly gules to
vessels in Massaohusetts Bay, which are now ofteu compelled to anchor




HARBORS IN MASSACHUSETTS. 5
in a very cxposed position in the onter harbor, hut could by the aíd of
the light asked for make a secure anchorage in the inner one.


1 inclose herewith an estímate for a light oí' the fífth order, made
by VV. A. Goodwiu, esq., the engineer of this district, which we concur
in reconunending as suitahle for this station,


1 am, sir, very respecttully, your obedient servant.,

Liqlit-house Inspector", Second District.

Chairman Light-house Board, n'úshington.


To thc honorable Senate and House oj Repreeentatioes of the United States
in Congress 0ssembled :


'I'heundersigned would respeetfully represent that the stone piel' at
the entrance 01' the harbors 01' Plymouth, Duxbury, and Kingston, is in
a conditiou to need immediate repairs,


And thev would further represent that these harbors are the only
ones affording' a good anchorage on the westerly side of Massaehusetts
Hay, especiallv for the largest class of vessels, and vessels approaching
these shores are often driven by storms so far into the bayas to be un-
able to reach any port either to the east 01' north, and having no guide
by which to cnrer the atoresaid harbors, are obliged either to anchor
outside 01' be drivenupou a rocky coast, involving the loss of vessel and
cargo and oftentimes of lives, "


The undersigued would further represent that by tbe erection of a bug
light, so called, where the said piel' now stands, vessels of any class
could rnn with a wiud that would else carry them to certaiu destruction, '
into a perfectly safe and commodious anchorage of from ten to fifteen
fathoms of water at all times of the tide,


They would fnrther represent that the establishment of this light
would be of immense benefit to the numerous class of coasting and fish-
iug vessels by enabliug them to gain a place oí safety from a coming
storm, 1l0\Y difficnlt to reach except in the day-time,


Thereforo we ask that ínstead of repairing the present piel', whích
mnst soon be done 01' it wil1 be washed away, said light may be estab-
lished in i ts place.

To the honorable the Senate and Houee 01 Representatioee 01 the United

The undersigned would respectfully represent that the stone pier at
the entrance of the harbor of Plymouth, Duxbury, and Kiugston is in
a condition to need immediate repairs.




,


HARBüRS IN MASSACHUSETTS. 7
And fhey would further represent that these harbors are the only


ones affording a good anchorage on the easterly side of Massachusetts
Bay, espccíally for the largor class of vessels, and vessels approaching
these shores are often driven by storms so far into the bayas to be una-
ble to reach any port, either to the east 01' north, and having no guido
by which to enter the aforesaid harbors, are obliged either to anchor
outside 01' be driven upon a rocky coast, involving the loss of vessel and
cargo, and oftentímes of Iives,


The undersigned would further represent, that by the erection of a
bug lighr, so-called, where the said piel' now stands, vessels of auy class
could run with a wind that would eIse carry them to eertaín destruction,
into a perfectly safe and commodious anchorage of from ten to fifteen
fathoms of water at all times of the tide.


They wonld further represent that the establishment of this light
would be of immense benefit to the numerous class of coasting and fish-
ing vessels by enabling them to gain a place of safety from a coming
storm, now difticult to reach exeept in the day-time,


Therefore we ask that instead of repairing the present piel', which
must 800n be done 01' it will be washed away, said light may be estab-
Iished in its place.

The insurrection in Cuba is causing g:reat devastatíon, and
will result, if continued, in the deatructíou of the produc-
tive capacitv of the island, Reasons why the Uníted States
have a peculiar interest in the fortunes and prosperitv of
the ísland. Contest one for self-government and freedom.
Self-government for every part of the American hemi-
sphere and freedom from trausatlantío rule a growing sen-
tímeut in the United States. This has been recognized by
other powers. Spain may, with honor, recognize it, and
treat for the surrender of her rights in Cuba. General I
Sickles instructed to offel' good oflices of United States to
terminate civil war on the basis of independence; the pay-
ment of an equivalent to Spain by Cuba; abolition óf I
slavery, and armistice pending negotiations; negotiations :
to be conducted at Washington, This díspatch to be read, I

If, in tendering good otlices under previous instructions, the I
use of the term." civil war ,. be objected to, say that ít has
be en nsed advísedly. Should the offer be refused, and
should the conditíon of parties not be changed, the Uníted
States may be forced to recognize a condition of belliger-
ency. Cautíoned to observe delicacy on this point, so as
not to wound sensibilities of government, ministcrs, 01' pe 0-
ple of Spain, May receive proposít.lons concerning Porto
Rico, if Spain makes them. Mr. Paul Forbes wiII meet
General Sicklcs in Madrid and advíse with him in these
negotiations.


His arrival and presentation. Favorable appearance 01'
thínrrs.


Early ~ecision important. No protectíon of Iífe of our citi-
zens in Cuba. Do not connect Cuba and Porto Rico in
negotiations.


Good oflices offered, Diseussíon limited by míníster to overo
tute, See Prím to-morrow,


Basis communicated to Primo He asked how much Cuba
and Porto Rico would give. Answered, no instructions ;
suggested $125,000,000. Prim saíd preliruinaries ruight be
arranged after cessatíon of hostilities.

formal offer of good offices. Minister replies, acknowledg-
ing' fidelity of United States in fulfilling their international
obligations. Spain grateful therefor, Wheu pro-slavery
party in power there was danger of trouble from reckless-
ness of ñlíbusters. Since victory of natíonal cause the
liberal people of Spain regard United States as theír
national friendo The Spanish liberals, who executed the
Spanish revolution, destre to give liberal institutions tú
Cuba, but the fatality of the situation makes it impossíble
while the insurrection continues. Would be gratified at

Spam. '\Vlll report conversahon to hlS colleagues. l'


InterYiew with General Primo (See No. 6, above.) Proposi- ~l
tions of the United States already cOlllmunicated to Gen· '
eral Prim by MI'. Forbes. General Prim answered, that
armistiee would not be granted, nor would Spain consider
question of independence while insurgents were in arms;
full amnesty wiII be granted when iJ;lsurgents lay down
arlllS. Question of emancipation would be left to Cubans.
Conference at Washington not favored. Cuba would be
heard through her deputies in the Cortes. Spain would
treat only with United States. Subject would be brought I
before council. '


General Prim authorizes General Sickles to say that good I ~;;
offices are accepted. Spain suggests for basiB-1. Arms '
to be laid down by insurgents. 2. Simultaneous amnesty.
3. Popular vote in Cuba on independellce. 4. Iude-
pendence granted by Spain through Cortes on receipt oi'
illlIemnity guaranteed by United States. ¡

gents in arms, He reeognizes inevitable terrninatinn of
colonialrelations in Aiueric», but Spaiu caunot he rcoou-

quire a govcrnmcnt to treat durinu hostilities. The íuanr.

of basis of agreement. 2. United Htates to connsel its
acceptance by Cuhans. 3. Cessation of hostilities alld am-
nesty. 4. Eleetioll of deputies. 5..A.ction uf the Cortes.
6. Plebiscit amI indepenllellee. General Sickles thinks
that the Spanish cabinet are sincere in their desire to make
an arrangelllcnt with the l.Tllited States.


Propositions of Spain are impradicable. Hl'presentatives
of the insurgent goVel'llllH.'nt are lweessarv pm'ties to nego.
tiation. If insurgellts are dü;al'llled, yuhilltl'('rS shoultl IJc

tenl1ering good ottices to get out, it has bcen acccpted as
índícating the purpose of United States to rccoguize the
Cn bnns as bclligerents ifthe mediation ofthe Tnited States

and its offect on public opinion. Communication by letter

preparntious made for electiou of deputies in Cuba, whose
arlvice wiII he songht iu future reforms, including abolition
of slaverv. Spain accepts good offíces but not the bases
proposed by United States. Mediatíon incompatible with
t he honor 01'Spain. Permanent commlt.tee of Cortes voted
nunuimouslv that iudependence of Cuba was Inndmissíble
as a bnsi« of negotiation. Any alienation of Spauísh ter-
r'itorv, without conseut of Cortes, would be unconstitu-
tional. Withdrawal 01' Mr, Siekles's note of 3d of Sep·
tember is requosted. Difficulties in the way of an arlllis·

cI'uelty in future prmTentel1. 'J'hese are believed to be tlle
Yiows of 1,he Spanish cabinet.


If negotiation OH hasis of six suceessive steps, ol1litting

if insurgents lay down arms amI elect deputies, Cortes
will recognize illlIepemIence of Cuba ~ Douhtful wllether

CüRRE8PüNDENOE,


I.-EXTRACTS FROM LATE' CORRESPONDENCE BET'VEEN THE DEPART-
MENT or STATE AND THE LEGATION OF THE "CNITED STATES AT
MADRID.


No. 1.
Mr. Fish to General Siciüe«:


No. 2.] 'VASHINGTON, June 29, 1869.
'I'he eonditiou of the Island of Ouba excites the most serious concern.


For more than uine mouths a civil couflict has been raging there that
gives as yet no promise of a speedy termination; a confiict marked with
a degree of fierceness and excess on either side rarely witnessed in later
ages, and threateniug, if continued, to work the desolation and destruc-
tion of the wea1th and the resources of the island.


This govermnent has felt itself constrained to rernonstrate against a
certain proclamation that was íssued by the Captain General of Cuba in
the course of this conflict, and which it appeared to the President would,
if carried into effect, infringe upon the rights of our people, in the pur-
suit of lawful counnerce, and under the protecticn of the recognized law
of nations, freely to navigate tbe high seas. We also felt ourselves
called upon to remonstrate against another proclamation that threatened
a mode of warfare that varied with the recognized customs of civilized
nations. Assurances have been received orally from the representative
of Spain atWashington that the former of these proclamations has
been revoked. We therefore have good reason to think that no further
cause of complaint will arise therefrom. It is true that one of our
vessels was illegal1y and violently arrested on the bigh seas, and two
passeugers forcibly .taken therefrom, for which we have demanded
atonement. 'I'he passengers were, however, returned to the consul, and
the Spanish miuister here has assured me that the passengers will be
indemniñed, and that a suitable apology will be made to the govern-
ment for the affront to its flag. It is hoped that a satisfactory adjust-
ment of this very unjustifiable outrage may be effected through the
representative of Spain to this government, without the necessity 01'
vour inter.vention at the court of Madrid.
0, Tbe proximity of the Island of Cuba, the constant intercourse between
its inhabitants and our citizens, and its extended and increasing com-
merce with this country, all tend to awaken an earnest interest in our
people in what ooucerns its inhabitants. Many citizens of the United
States are largely interested in property there, many reside there, and
many visit the island more 01' less frequently either on business, 01' to
enjoy the benefit of the clímate. Even more numerous, possibly, are the
Cubans who own property, 01' who visit, 01' wbo reside, in the United
States; and thus there have grown up close personal relations, both
business and social, between the inhabitants of Cuba and of the United
States. A strong political sympathy also exists, anc1 the civil strife now
raging in the i~lalld thus appeals with unusual power to the sympatby
which Americans feel for all peoples striving to secure for themselves




14 STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE IN THE ISLAND OF CUBA.
more liberal institutlons, and that inestimable right of self-government
which we prize as the foundation of all progrese and achievement,


During the nine months that the insurrection in Cuba has existed
this government has, in the utmost good faith, and with great suecess,
exerted its powers to perform all its duties and obligations toward
Spain, and to maintain its friendly relations with that power. It has
been no easy task to restrain our citizens within the bounds prescríbed
by the obligations of one friendly power to another, and to repress the
spirit of adventure and enterprise from enteriug the field of an extended
and prolonged contest, where the cry was in favor of liberty, emancipa-
tíon, and self-government, especially when all the claims of neighbor-
hood, of personal intimacies, and of political sympathies were tending in
the direction of material aid to the insurrection, and when these tend-
encies were warmed into life by the personal presence and the 'appeals
of the Cubans who were eitber resídent among'us, 01' whom the desola-
tion of tbeir country had brought to our shores, But this government
claims that it has faithfully discbarged all these duties.


The strife stil1 continues in Cuba. It has already marked its track by
devastation and ruin-towns sacked, houses burned, plantations destroy-
ed, and líves lost. On either side the war has been one of desolation,
and, if continued, must result in the entire destruction of a large part
of the productive capacity of the island as well as of an immense
amount of property and of human Iife.


It is not impossible that the Cubans may be conquered, if Spain
devotos her whole energies to the work; but they can never agaill be
contented, happy, faithful, 01' quiet subjects of that power, Assuming.
that Spain may eventually subdue the present iusurrection, she will
find herself in possession of a devastated and ruined territory, inhabíted
by a discontented people. The enlightened statesmen of Spain cannot
fail to appreciate that the feelings and the affections of the entire nativo
population of the island are not onIy estranged, but that they are deeply
hostile to the continuance of Spanish rule. N01' can they fail to recog-
nize the advancing growth of that sentiment which claims for every part
of the American hemisphere the right of self-government and freedom
from transatlantic dependence.


England, bound as she has been to the traditions of the past, tena-
cious as she has been of her possessions, and conservative of all her
rights and interests, has recognized the force of this feeling, and has
anticipated events by granting self-government to her North American
provinces. Denmark, approving the policy of the separation of colonies
from the parent state, is endeavoring to part with her insular possessions.
Russia has set a recent example of parting with her possessions in
América. N01' are these the only governments in the Old World that are
preparing their colonies for independence and self-government. lt can
no Ionger be a question of nationaI dignity, nor can the proper pride 01'
the just susceptibílities oí a great power refuse to eonsider the question
oí a voluntary severance of past relations between itself and distant
possessions. Spain herself was one of the first of the great Enropean
powers to cede voluntarily its distant colonial possessions, for she trans-
ferred Louisiana to France, and subsequently ceded Florida to the
United States. France, engaged in war, and finding Louisiana Hable
to military attack, replenished her treasury by its sale,wllile relieving
herself of the burden of the defense of a distant possession.


We hope that, mth these examples, Spain will now be pl'epared to
consider and to adopt, with respect to Cuba, a like course of wise fore-
sight and enlightened statesmanship. In the name of humanity she




STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE IN THE I8LAND üF CUBA. 15
can afford to arrest this war; and were it not for her traditional pride,
and her recognizcd dísregard of all consideratious of mere interest
where her honor is involved, we might appeal to considerations of
interest, (which, after all, must he regarded by those who would wisely
and prudently conduct fhe affairs of a nation,) to indnce her to surrender
her rights in the Island of Cnba, on receiving an eqnivalent for her
property and her right of domain.


After much consideration and a careful survey of the question in all
its relations, this government has arrived at tbe conclusion that it is its
duty to exert its friendly inflnence to bring this unhappy strife to a
close, Duty to its own citizens and to their large property interests,
jeoparded by the continuance of the war-the necessity of mantaining
quiet within its borders now seriously disturbed by the continued strife
carried on so near its borders-our friendship for Spain, one oí tbe
earliest and oldest of our allies, witb whom no interruption of friendly
relations has occurred sínce our eutranee into the family of nations-
our sympathy for the Cubans, wbo are our neighbors-all alike impel
the government to this course.


Tbe President therefore directs you to offel' to the cabínet at Madrid
the good offices of the United States for the pnrpose of bringing to a
close tbe civil war now ravaging tbe Island of Cuba, on the following
bases:


1. The independence of Cuba to be acknowledged by Spain.
2. Cuba to pay to Spain a sum, within a time and in a manner to be


agreed upon by them, as' an eqnivalent for the entire and definite relin-
quishment by Syain of all her rights in that island, including the public
property 01' every description. If Cuba sbould not be able to pay the
whole surn at once in cash, the futnre payments, by installments, are to
be adequately secured by a pledge of the export anc1 import customs
duties under an arrangement to be agreed upon for their collection,
in trust, for the purpose of securing both the principal and interest of
those installments until their final discharge,


3. The abolition of slavery in the Island of Cuba.
4. An armistice pending the negotiations for the settlement aboye


referred too
In case the good offices of the United States are accepted by Spain,


you will request tbat such stepsmay be irnmediately taken as will arrest
the progress of the fight, and you will cornmunicate at once by telegraph
with the departrnent, using the cipber when necessary. Authority
should also be asked in that case for the represeutatives of the revolú-
tionary party, now in the Uuited States, to communicate through the
Spanísh lines with those in command of the revolutiontary party in Cuba,
in order that all further destruction of life and property may be arrested
at tbe earliest possible momento


It is proposed that the ncgotiations for the settlement of tbe several
questions to be adjusted between the contending partíes shall be con-
ducted here. You will tberefore, in the event 01' our good offices being
accepted, propose tbat a conference be held in tbe city of Wasbington,
30t an early day to be agreed upon between yourself and the cabinet of
Madrid, between properly authorized representatives of the two parties,
tbe representative of each party to be clothed with full powers to agree
to and to enter into a conventíon for a settlement on the bases aboye
indicated, and to asrange, settle, and sign all necessary details and other
agreements that may be tbought proper on botb sities.


The President of the United States will, if desired by the representa-
ttves of the two parties, designate sorne person to attenc1, 01' to attend




16 STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE IN THE ISLAND OF CUBA.
and preside in such conference, and to use his good offices in the form of
information and advice in facilitatiug the objects thereof; but such per-
son will have no other power thereiu, and shall not assume any obliga-
tion on the part of the United States, unless upon the joint request of
the rcpresentatives of both parties, and with the assent of the President
of the United States, which cannot be given until after eonsideration
by him of suoh joint request.


The President of the United States will undertake to decide a11 ques-
tions which shalI b~ referred to him by the conferenee, Bis decision
shall be made upon protocols and other documents and proceediugs of
the conferenoe, which may be so referred, and shall be conclusive and
binding npon the partíes,


The expenses of each representative attending the conference will be
defrayed uy the state 01' party by which he is appoínted. . The con-
ference will have accommodations (as to a place for transacting its
business) furnished by the President of the United States.


An armistice shall take place as soon as the government of the United
States shall receive offíeial information oí the acceptance by Spain and
Cuba of these propositlous, and shall continue ulltil the termination of
the conference.


You will take the earliest opportunity after your arrival to read these
instructious to the Spanish rninister for foreign affairS, and will also
leave with him the oflice copy thereof herewith iuclosed.




No. 2.

JJ;Jr. Fish to General Sickles.


No. 3.J \VASHING1'ON, June 29, 1869.
Your instruction No. 2, of even date, coutains certain general views


upon the Cuban question, whichyou are therein instructed to place be-
fore the cabinet at Madrid in the form transmitted to you. 1 now desire
to add certain other considerations, which you may 01' may not, at your
diseretion, put before the Spanish minister in your conversations and
correspondence with him.


You will notice that the proposal coutained in your instrnction No. 2
is expressed to be for the purpose of bringing to a close the civil war
now ravaging tbe island. Wbile this expression is not designed to grant
any public recoguitíon of belligerent rights to the insurgents, it is never-
theless used advisedly, and in recoguition of a state and condition of
the con test which may not justify a much longer withholding of the
concession to the revolutionary party of the recognized rights of belli-
gerents. Should tbe expression therefore be commented UPOll, you will
admit what is aboye stated with reference to it, and may add, in case of
a protracted discussion, 01' the prospect of a refusal by Spain to accept
the proposed offer of the United States, that an early recognition of
belligerent rights is tbe logical deduction from the present proposal, and
wi11 probably be deemed a necessity on the part of the Uuited States,
unless the eondition of tbe parties to the contest shall have changed very
materially. 1 need not caution you of the delicacy ¡o be observed on
this point, (as well as on aH others,) so as not to arouse 01' excite any
just susceptibilities of the governmellt, oi' tlIe ministeI; 01' of the people
of Spain.




STRUGGLE FüR INDEPENDENCE IN THE I8LAND OF CUBA. 17


It may also be made a sine qua non by the Spanish cabinet that the
United States should guarantee the payment of the sum proposed to be
paíd by Cuba to Spain, While it is desirable, if possible, to avoid such
a complication, yet a state of things may arise in the course of the ne-
gotiatious at Washington that wonld induce the President to reeom-
mend Congress to authorize that to be done. In the event, therefore,
of the point being raised and insisted upon, you wiU say that the Pres-
ident understands that a state of things may arise in whieh he will not
object to the assumption of such a liability on the part of the United
States, should Congress assent to it,


The President, being also desírous of removing 3U possible future
sources of trouble in the Autilles, is wiUing, should the propositions of
tbe United States be accepted, and should the subject of Porto Rico and
its future political condition be mentioned by the Spanish minister, that
you should inquire whether the cabinet at Madrid desire to make any
suggestions as to that condition, and should they manifest a disposition
to also sever their political relations with that island, you may receive
and transmit to the department, for the consideration of the President,
any suggestions 01' proposals which may be made with respect thereto.
'I'he same causes which have produced the present convulsion in Cuba
exist latent in Porto Rico, and may be fanned into ñames hereafter
should free government and a system of free la bol' be brought in imme-
diate contact with that island by establishing them in Cuba. It is not
improbable, therefore, that the cabinet of Madrid may think it wíse to
determine tbe political condition of both íslands at the same time.
While, therefore, you wiU not obtrude this subject into any conference
tnat may take place between you and the minister for foreigu affairs,
you will, should the question be brought forward hy him, meet it as
aboye directed,


Yon have already been advised in your personal interview with me
of the nature of a eonfldential conversatíon between General Pr.m and
1\'11'. Paul S. Forbes, a citizen of the United States, whose personalrela-
tions with General Prim, the president of the council, and with other
leading personages in the Spanish capital, have led the President to name
him as a special and confidential agent of this government, to proceed
to Madrid for the purpose of there conferring with the Spanish authori-
ties with a view to secnre the termination of hostilities and the inde-
-pendence of the island, MI'. Forbes' powers are advisory only, You
will avail yourself of MI'. Forbes's assistanee in the delicate but very ím-
portant negotiations on this subjeet, Should he have arrived in Madrid
before you reach there, he may have notified the cabinet informally of
the nature of the proposition whioh, under the instructions contained in
my No. 2, you are dírected to presento In that event you will be able to
govern yourself in their formal and official presentation somewhat by his
report and advice. Every consideration of humanity as weU us.of ínter-
est will call upon you so to shape this negotiation within the line of yo
instrnctions as to bring it to a successful result if possible.

N o. -l.] ilIADRID, August 12, 1869.
On my arrival Mr. Forbes reported to me that he had not presented


his letter to the minister of state ; that Marshal Prim, to whom Mr.
Forbes had intimated tlie pnrport of the propositions contained in his
instructioua, díd not receive them with favor. and as the president of
t.lie council was understood to be more inclined to our views than his
eolleagues, :MI'. Forbes determined to await my arrival before making
anv commnnication to the minister of state.


tú view of his report anrl advice.T deemed it prudent, in compliance
with your instructions, to postpone, for the present, the formal commu-
nication of your dispatch No. 2, aud accordingly in my interview with
Señor Silvela, on the 31st ultimo, you will oh serve that 1 confined my-
self to the general views I was instructed to express,


The conversatiou hegan hy a reference, on my part, to the kindness
and considerat.iou with which I liad f)Cell received by the regent at La
Granja, to which the minister courteously replied that the regent was
glad of au occasion to show not ouly his regard for myself, but the value
which the Spanish uation placed UpOIl the friendship of the United
States,


I then entered nt once upon the object for which I had sought the
interview, rernarking that I desired to begin a fnll and frank conver-
sation in relation to Cuba.


The minister replica immediately that the question 01' Cuba was one
01' the g1'~n~est that no",' occupied tho government; that he liad spokeu
with the president of th« couucil of nrinistera on the subject and was
prepnred to IH'a1' tlre views I had to present.


1 procceded to observe that the goyernmellt and people of the United
States felt a lively sympathy in the recent efforts made by the people of
Spain in the great work oí' their national reorganization, and that ir
was the earnest desire of the President to avoid auything that could
embarrass the government of Spain at this time. In this relation 1.

Tbat ifitwere true, as is believed, that a majority of the people of Cuba

ing to the government oí SIJain the good offices of the United StatesÍtl
all proper efforts to arrest the deplorable eonñíct of whicb the Island
had been the theatre for so many months,


The President appreeiated too highly the sense of national honor and
the legitimate pride tbat form such distinguishing traits of the Spanish
character to make any suggestíon that eould awaken the just suscepti-
bilities of the government of bis Highuess, the Regent, but in the llame
of humanity, and in the interest oí' both nations, he hoped that some
means of settling the questious at issue might be devised at the earliest
possible day.


The minister, ínterrupting me as if he thought 1 had gone quite far
enough, for the present at least, acknowledged the sincere and Ioyal
mauner in which the government of the United States Izad fulfilled its
internatlonal duties in regard to the Cubau iusurreetion ; he 'admitted
the extreme difficulty in a free couutry of preventing individnals from
joining either side in a war near íts borders, and said that so far as the
power of the American government extended, Spain not only had no
cause for complaint, but had been most gratefully Impressed with the
upright and loyal dealing of the President; that he bad repeatedly di-
rected their representative in Washington to expresa to our government
their cordial appreciation of its action ; that this feeling of grateful sym-
pathy was general in Spain, and found utteranee everywhere in public


. and in prívate; and that now, more than ever, Spain regarded América
with sympathy and confidence. In former days1 wlieu the pro-slavery
party held the reins of power, there was sorne anxiety from time to
time lest the recklessness of filibusters should involve the two nations in
difficulty; but that since the victory of the national canse in tbe great
war, the liberal people of Spain had come to regard the United States as
their natural friendo


The Cuban question was orle of the utmost gravity and delicaey. It
was the intention of the ~panish Iiberals, who planned aad execnted the
revolutionary movements which have given to Spain its new political
life, to make, at the earliest moment, provision for granting self-govern-
ment to Cuba. But this fatal msurreotion broke out at the very moment
when it was becoming possible to give to Cuba all the rights she desired.
The Cl'Y of "Death to Spallianls" was heard in Spain, and it lJBcame im-
possible, in the face of civil war, to carry out the beueficent plan tllat
had been. formed. The liberal party in Spain finds itself, to its own in-
finite regret, forced into a seeming sympathy with the reaetjonary party
in Cuba; and the liberals of Cuba, who oug-ht to be its :tirm friends, are
converted, by the fatality of tbe situation, into its bitterest enemies.
Tbere is no sentiment dearer to tl1e bearts of the liberalleaders than that
of freedom to aU men; yet tbey stand befare tbe world, in this Cuban
eonflict, as opposed to self-g-overnment and resisting the aholition of
slavery. He considered the insnrrection as a most deplorable misfor-
tune and mistake, both for Cuba and for Spain.


If a way could be fonnd to settle a11 tbese questions in snch a manuer
as to do justice to Cuba, without infriuf,ring UpOll the honor of Spain, the
government would be greatly gratified. There is no intelltion 01' desire
among the liberals of Spain eyer again to work [e:cploiter] tlie Island of
Cuba on the old selfish system. It has been their constal1thope and
wish to grant to the Cubans tl1e administration of thcir OWIl aft'airs and
the full frnits of their own labor, preserviug their commercial connec-
tions, and sorne slmdow 01' their political relations.


The minister said, in conclusion, that he wonld report to his coHeagues
in the goverul11ent tlle substanee of this conversation at the first meet-

gle interview. He would name :1U earlv <lay for a second couference, in
which he hoped to be prepared to ask General Sickles to lay before hirn
more defínitely the views of the government of the United States in this
matter,


It was so evident the minister wished to confine the interview to the
overtnres 1 liad already made, that 1 forbore proceediug further with the
diseussion ; and expressing the hope thaf 1 would soon have the pleasure
oí renewing the confereuce, for which 1 should await his excellency'a in-

OH Sunday, the day alter my interview with the minister of state, 1


made the prescribed visit of ceremony to the president of the council
of ministers, Marsbal Prim, at Iris quarters in the war department.
After the customary courtesies had been observed, and with thc marshal's
conseut, which was frankly given, the subject of Cuba was introduced.
1 said 1 liad an ímportant counnunicatiou from my government looking
to a solution of the question, that I was anxious to present as SOOIl as
possible, He asked me if it was the same 01' substantially the same as
the one Mr. Forbes had foreshadowed, to which 1 replied in the affirrna-
tive, when, with much aniruation and even warruth of manuer, he pro-
tested that Spaíu would not entertain the suggestion of an armistice
with the insurgents, nor consider the question of the indepeudenee of
Cuba, while the insurgente were in arms against the government; that
Spain would grant a full arul complete aannesty as soon as the insurgents
laid down their arms; and that beiug done, the whole .subject would be
open for consideration; that he was disposed to meet the question
frankly and practically ; that perhaps he was somewhat in advanee of
the views of his colleagues, but he liad no doubt they were unanimous
in the hope that the iníluence of the United States might be successfully
exerted to relieve the qnestion from the embarrassments which now
surrounded it. He added that, in regard to emancipation, Spain would
prefer to leave that mattcr to the Cuballs tItemsel\Tes, saying, "That is
your glory in America, tlle reward of your philanthrophy, and we do
not wish to deprive you of it." .


1 then sounded the marshal upon the proposal for a conference in
\Yashington, in which Spaill, the United States, and Cuba should be
I'epresented; but to tllis he at once demurred, saying Cuba cou1d only
be 11ean1 here through her deputies elected to the Cortes; tbat Spain
might treat with the United States, not with Cuba.


1 tben referred to my interview with the millister oí state the day
before, und elllarged upon the considerations then advanced, adding
tbat every day tIte confiict was prolollged increased the danger of
furthel' complications, and to enable the Ullited States to exert tbeir
good oflices with advantage to aH parties, it was essential that no time
be lost; that if tbe prelimillaries could be seU,led here now between the
Uuited States and Spain~ ana the ef!usion of blood stopped, the passions
of the confiict would be calmed, and the details would tb611 be less
diffieult of adjustmellt tlIun at presento

The marshal replied that Señor Silvela had informed him of our in-
terview, and that the subject would be brought before the conneil that
night, and he hoped it would not be long' before the minister of state
01' himself would be prepared to intimate to me the bases upon which
Spain would be willing to treat; that, meanwhile, he preferrod our con-
versatíon should be regarded as unofücíal and entirely coufidentia1.


Having already trespassed upon the indulgenoe aceorded to a visit of
mere ceremony, with the marshal's pormission to resume the snhject at
an early day, 1 withdrew, agreeably impressed with his candor aud
courtesy.

a great step in arlvanee had been rendered possible-a simultaneous dis-
armameut aud amnesty of the insurgents ; that this already was a great
progress ; a minister who would llave discnssed such a matter a few
years ago would llave beeu dragged through the streets by the popu-
lace; that now, on the oontrary, we are able to diseuss it in a calm and
reasonable manner,


1\1:1'. Silvela then entered upon a very fnll analysis of article 108 of the
Spauish constitution, showing that it had two distinct and opposite
phases in its relation to the present question ; that while by its terms it
precluded the government from making any defínitive arrangement in
regard to Cuba until tho Cuban representatives shall have taken their
seats in tlie Cortes, ou the other hand it authorizes the govermneut to
make auy arraugcment that might seem expedient after the Cuban dep-
uties arrive, the Spanish goverumeut aud ohambers being then free to
negotiate OH the basis of a liberal constitution, complete autonomy 01'
independence ; ami tliat although it might be said the independence of
the island was not contemplated hy the constitution, yet giving the
article a somewhat latitudinarian eoustructiou, it was susceptible even of
that interpretariou.


1 auswered that while it would not be proper for me 1,0 discuss the
coustitutional q uestíou with his excellency, yet 1 would connnend to his
notiee that in rlealing with the eveuts now transpiring in Cuba, it was
uecessarv to look at them in a practical poínt of víew ; that unless sorne
arraugemeut coukl be made at once, the eonfliet might soon reaeh pro-
portions and involve eomplications that would greatly inerease the diffí
culties of a sertlcment ; aud that notwithstanding the desire of the
President to do all in his power to promete a satisfactory adjustment,
the interests aítected and the strong current of 8Yll1 pathy in the struggle
felt in the United States, might cause no little embarrassment, if
nothing more could be done until the Cuban deputies took their seats
in the Cortes.


Mr, Silvelaexpressed his entire concurrence with what 1 liad said, but
added that it was impossible, in the present temper and spirit of the
Spanish people, to procced hastily in the matter, and that aboye aU it
was out of tIle qnestiim fol' t11e goverument, whose highest du1,y i1, was
to illcu1cate tIle most religions reS1)ee1, fot the consti1,ution, to give at
this time tIte eXHmple of an infraetion of it.


He hoped tile steps he had indieated would lead, in a legal alld reg-
ular way, to tIle ol~ieet we lIad aH so mneh at heart, and snggested, in

24 STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE IN THE ISLAND or CUBA.
A.


In the conference whieh took place to-day, the 10th of Angnst, 1869, between the
repreeentative of the United States, General Sickles, and the miuister of state, the
latter of these gentlemen said, that having made known to the government the sug-
gestion made by the minister plenipotentiary of the United States, General Sickles, in
the eonference of the 31st of July Iast, in regard to the desire of the President and
oí the people of those States that the Spanish government might sncceed in promptly
putting an end to the violent state oí affairs that now devastates the Island 01' Cuba,
he thinks proper to state that after the revolut.iou oí Beptember had takeu place, and
conformably to the principles thereby proclaimed, Spain would ulready lrave given all
constitutional Iiberties to Cuba if the unfortunate insurrection oí Yam and the cry of
"DeatIl to Spain," uttered by sorne Cubans, had not alienated the sympathies of the
nation, and ohliged the government to aceept the ímpolitic eontest to which it was
provoked ; that a good proof oí its desire to settle in a liberal sense the question of the
Antilles is shown not onIy by the eIection of the depnties of Porto Rico, who are to take
their seats in the Cortes Constituyentes at their next sessiou, Imt also by t.he I08th ar-
ticle of the constrtution, in which, uotwithstandiug the period in which it was adopteel,
it was provided tIlat the concnrrence of the deputiee oí" that provinee ís neeessary to
tix the future form of government oí the Island.


In view of these indisputable facts, and taking account of and appreciuting the tra-
dit.ional pride of the Spanish people, the governlllent considera that it can come to no
definite decision in regard to the political situation and future government of the
Island of Cuba, unt.il the insurgents lay down their arrns anrl cease the strnggle.


This being done, the government is disposed to grant a fn11 nolltl geuerOU:i\.lmmesty to
the iusurgents, and wheu quiet is estublished, to proceed to the treest eIccti.on of rel)-
resentatives of Cuba.


The national dignity beiug tlms preserved iutaet, and it being practicable to eomply
with the article of the constdt.ution, the moment "i11 have arri ved for coucerting witlt
its representatives the necessary measures in relatiou to tIlc Ieg-al fnture of tlle Islallu
of Cuba, snhmitting them to the indispensable upprollatioll of the Constitueut Cortes.


In concIusion, if the United States, by their natural intiuellce in AlIlcriea, are able
to contrilmte to tIle cefl.sation of tbe efiilsion of lllootl, in tIlc pacitication oí" the 1s1mlll
of Cuba, and its entrance, by thc e1ection of itsdcputics, iuto tIle exere1se of its rights,
tIle government oí Spain cannot but be gmteful for these goou offioes.,


General Siekles replies that he \Yill cOllllllunieatc to his governlllent the vicws of tIle
cabinet of Madrid. Of oourse he cannot anticipate the views of !lis govcrnmellt in
regard to the bases mentioned by his excellency tIle secretary oí" state; am! altllOngll
it will be deeply regretted that a.constitntional obstacle prevents the oxecntive from
dealing with tbe main qnestion nowand detinitively, there can be no tlouut that tIle
scrnpulous observallce oí coustitutional lilllitations oí authority will he appreciated
by the government of the United States. The generous ofi'er oi' a fuU amnesty to the
insurgents, the recognition oí the right of the Cuhaus, tl1rongh their l'epreBentatives,
to bave a concurrent voiee in determining the fntm'e of the islaml, l\nd tIle pI'omise of
a íree election for deputies, afford gfOuml for congratnlatiou UPOl\ the good tlisposition
manifested by tbe Spanish government.


Reserving tIle questions suggestcd by a1'ticle 108 oí thc constitlltion of Spaill, General
Sickles, in conformity with 11is instructions, expresses tho hope of his governmcut that
in view of tbe del)lorable character of the cOllfiict, alld thc possible cOl1lplicatiolls iuci-
dent to a prolongation oi' bostilities, tIle cabillet of .Madrid will elldtltWür to reach as
promptly as possible a solution of the question, a resnlt which the goverumeut oí th~
United States will be happy to assist in promoting.


Tllis excIlange oí views, the object oí tIle conferellce, being thns terminated, i t was
agreed to give to it the character of the strictest reserve.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, G, and 7, with the inclosures mentioned in them respecto
ively, except the office copy of No. 2.


My interview with the presidcnt of the couneil was postponed at his
instance until the 12th, when 1 liad a long and free eonversation with
his excelleney in relation to Cuba. 1\1y telegram of the 13th having al-
ready advised you of the result of the conference, 1 shall condense my
report as much as possible.


General Prim said he had conferred freely with his colleagues in re-
gard to the basis 1 had informally communicated to him, and they were
less inelined than himself to agree to our proposal,


1 remarked that the official answerof the rninister of state to my over-
tures bad acquainted me with the views of the cabinet, and 1 regretted
to be compelled to trausmit to my government a reply so Iittle calculated
to encourage the efforts the President was disposed to make toward a
settlement of the controversy.


General Prim replied that sorne of his colleagues did not realize, as
he did, the difficulty of carrying on a war in America; and that tliey
were greatly influenced by the popular sentiment in Spain, which mude
no accouut of any sacrifice of life 01' money when the national honor was
believed to be involved ; that Mr, Silvela, being a lawyer, and a parlia-
mentary leader, naturally inclined toward a purely legal and legisla-
t.ive solution, while for his part, if he were alone concerned, he wonld
say to the Cubans," Go if you wiU; make good the treasure you have
cost us, and let me bring horne our army and fieet, and consolidate the
Iibertíes and resources oí Spain."


1 suggested that pnblic opinion in Europe had already anticipated
some arraugement by which the independence of Cuba might be con-
ceded; that the continental and English journals in discussing the sub-
ject found arnple precedent for such a concession by Spain in the action
01' other Enropean states; that several ínriuential papers in Madrid fa-




26 STRUGGLE FüR INDEPENDENCE IN THE ISLAND üF CUBA.
vored more 01' less the same views, and 1 added tbat the people of Spain
had given such proofs of their confidence in the present government,
that he had only to carry out the sagacious and practical plan of action
he had heretofore indicated, and he would doubtless be sustaiued in this
as he had been in all his mensures.


The general rejoined by saying with mueh animation that the great
difflculty in the .way was the defiant attitude of the insurgents ; that
here was the mistake of the United 8tates in proposing an armistice
and asking 8pain to treat on the basis of independence with insurgents
with arms in theír hands; and he added emphatically, "1 am sure no
human power could obtain from the 8panish people the most insignifí-
cant concession as long as the rebellion maintains its footing."


Upon this 1 observed that no one appreciated more highly than the
President the elevated tone of the cabinet of Madrid, and that he would
be the Iast to make any proposal derogatory to the honor of Spain ;
that in his view a measure that would stop the indiseriminate sacrifice
of life and property in Cuba, pending negotiations for ulterior arrange-
ments, was prompted as well by considerations of hurnanity as of'policy ;
that Great Britain had reeoguized the independence of the United
8tates simultaneously with the cessation of hostilities, and that if, as 1
was glad to be assured, the future relations of Cuba to the mother
couutry admitted of adjustment hereafter on the basis of the independ-
en ce of the colony, then surely some means might be devísed by which,
without offense to Spain, the conílict could be arrested pending the
negotiations with the United 8tates, a friendly power offeriug its good
offíees to promote a settlement ofthe question; aud 1 added, with emphasis,
that such was the pressure of events, you hall instructed me by telegraph
to ask 1'01' an immediate answer to our proposal, and to say that the
President was embarrassed by the delay that liad occurred ; that 1 liad
preferred to make this communication to himselfin view of Mr, Silvela's
disinclination to díscuss the qnestion before the arrival of the Cuban
deputies to the Cortes; and that unless he was prepared to forego
whatever advantage might be gained throngh the mediation of the
United 8tates, prompt action was necessary.


He then, after some conversation about matters of detall, put in form
the substance of the proposition sent to yon by my telegralll of tIle 1~3th,
a copy of which 1 inclose with this dispateh. In tIte enming, not long
after 1 had left him, the general sent me a note asking me not to send
my dispatch until after 1 had seen ilim again the followillg day, at e1en'n.
In that interview, which was brief, General Prim said l)e had informed
the council, soon after we separated, of the cOlllmnnication he had made to
me, and they thougllt he had perhaps gone beyond tIte limits of t11c eXCCll-
tive power in his proposal; he therefore would qualifY the fourth POillt
by inserting "the Cortes consellting," whic11 was according1y done. 1
tllen read to him the text of the te1egram as it was transmitted to yon,
and he found it correcto


You will, of course, observe the duplex form the negotiatioll receives
in the 8panisIl cabinet. The reserve of the ministel' of statc amI tlle
frankness of tIle president of tlle council are in striking cOllt1'ast. The
explanation is to be found as ,veH in the solicitude of tIle minister of
state to holel a position easily defended in the Cortes, ii' tlle llegotiation
fail, as in the é1Jaracteristics of tIle men; one deals with tIte qnestion as
a snccessful revolutionary leader wieldillg almost absolute power, t11e
other purely as a jurist and a parliamentarian.

Yesterday, as soon as 1 liad received the supplernental telegram by
whieh 1 was informed of the exact text of your ínstructíons, sent by
telegraph on the 16th instant, 1 sought an interview with the president
of the couucil 01' miniaters, which he promptly appointed for this morn-
ing at eleven. 1 have just now left him, after a very full discussion' of
all the points comprised in your iustructions, and although the mail for
the next steamer closes early this afternoon, 1 shall endeavor to send
you by this post a report embodying the substance of our conversation,


After communicatiug to General Prim your views in regard to the
fírst and third of his propositions, requiring the Cubans to Iay dowu
their arms, and to declare by a vote the desire of tbe population for
independeuce, 1 proceeded to urge your proposal as embodied in your
instruction No. 2, already communicated to him by Mr, Forbes, and
illustrated its advantages by argmnents and suggestíons 1 will not now


. stop to recapitnlate,
General Prim, in reply to the objection made 1.0 the cessation of hos-


tilines 011 the part of the insurgents as a preliminary, said it was not
intended as a conditioll to precede an understanding with the United
States; he was ready to agree wit11 me upon t11e bases of an arrange-
ment cOlltr'mplatillg the independence of Cuba, but t11at he conld not
give to tIlo arrallgement the sanctions of a treaty, nor submit the propo-

the inevitable termination of HU colonial relations in their autonomy as
soon as they were prepared for independence; but that no emergency
and no consideration would reconcile Spain to sueh a concession until
hostilities ceased.


1 reminded him that Austria had transferred Venice to France, and
assented to its immediate transfer to Italy, before peace was declared;
that the independence of all the American States had been recognized
at one time and another during the progress of hostilities; and that in
coming to an agreement with the United States on the subject Spain
would not treat with insurgents, but with a friendly power, offering its
good offices to an 01<1 ally, To these and like amplifications of the argu
ment he replied with great earnestness and emphasis : "Let tbe United
States be assured of the good faith and the good dispositiou 01' .Spain,
and especially of the frankuess and sincerity with which the president
of the council has promised to treat with the cabinet at Washington,on
the basis of the independence of Cuba, as soon as it is possible to do so
eonsistently with the dignityand honor of Spain ; formidable as the
insurrection in Cuba may become, it has not yet approached the pro-
portions of any of tbose confiicts in which governments have found
themselves constrained to treat during hostilities. The Cuban in sur-
gents hold no city 01' fortresses; they have no port, no ships; they have
no army that presumes to offer or' acccpt battle; and now, before the
period arrives for active operations, when Spnin will send the ample
re-enforeements she holds in readiness, it' is only uecessary tor the Cu-
bans to accept the assurance of the Uuited States, gíven on the faith of
Spain, that they may have their independence by laying down their
arms, electing their deputies, and declaring their wish to be free by a
vote of the people."


1 have thus rapidly and briefiy sketched the leading points of this
interview, that you may be put in possession of all of it 1 can give you
to-day by post. 1 am satisfled the president of the eouncil desires to
come to an agreement with the United States on the subjeet oí Cuba,
and that the independence of the island is not a serious obstacle to the
negotiation.

No. 10.] J\fADRID, August 21, 1869.
Tbe report in my No. 9 of the íutervíew with General Prim yester-


day was necessarily brief. In giving you the conversatíon more in detail,
1 shall endeavor to avoid superfluous repetition.


The president of the conncil said his idea was that the governmenta
of the United ~tates and Spain should come to an nnderstanding in
regard to the question-a full and complete accord; that then the Uni-
ted States should employ their iufiuenee with the Cubans to induce them
to accept a basis of settlement which shonld comprise-


1. A cessation of hostilities ;
2. An amnesty ;
3. The electíon of deputies ;
4. A project of law to be submitted by the govermnent to the Cortes,


settling the future of the ísland,
lt was irnpossible to act offlcially in the matter while the insurrection


atill maintained itself. But the arrangement which the two govern-
ments were now trying to arrive at was as earnest, as serious, and as
binding as if it were in form and manner a treaty,


1 asked what would be the result if the United States accepted such a
basis of agreement, ami the Cubaus should refuse to lay down their
arrns and proceed to the election of deputies, and vote on the questíou
of their independence.


'I'he president of the council said : "In that case, there would be but
one solutíon, continuing the war á Poutrance. I do not fiatter myself that
Spain will retain possession of the island, I consider that the period
oí colonial autonorny has virtually arrived. However the present con-
test may end, whether in the suppression oí the insurrection, 01' in the
better way of an arnicable arrangemeut through the assistance oí' tbe
United States, it is equaUy olear to me that the time has come for Cuba
to govern herself'; and if we succeed in putting clown the insurreetion
to-morrow, I shall regard the subject in the same light-that the child
has attained its majority and should be allowed to direct its own affairs,
We waut notbing more than to get out of Cuba, but it must be done in
a dignified and honorable manner."


1 assured the general that nothing was further from the dispositiou of
the President oí' the United States than to make any proposal that
could wound the just suseeptibility of the government of Spain; that all
the wars by which the American republics had attained their independ-
ence were elosed by negotiations carried on· before hostilities had
ceased; and although in any matter affecting its honor every nation
must decide for itself, it did not appear to the President that the course
of action he bad proposed was in the slightest degree inconsistent with
the self-respect oí Spain, while it avoicled many diffícnlties and afl'orded
tbe most speedy and practicable solution oí the question.


General Prim at once replied: '" Tbere is a vast difference betweell the
present insurrection in Cuba and those revolutionary movements by
which tbe republics of the Western Continent gained their inclependence.
In those examples negotiation was resorted to after campaigns had beell
fought, and battles lost and gained; they had armies in the fielcl and
organized governments supporting them. 'Ve see notbing of tbis in
Cuba; only mere l'oving bauds, who fly wben they are pursued, and
who have never been found in numbers sufficient to give 01' aceept bat-

tle. It is very possible that in the lapse of time tho iusurrection may
become more formidable; it may raise armies; it may takc cities and
fortifled places ; it may demonstrate, what has not yet been in any way
demonstrated, that it is supported by the majority of the population.
In that case Spain will have something tangible to treat with, But we
hope to avoid allthis bloodshed, disaster, aud ruin by making some am-
icable arrangement now. It is impossible tor 11S to treat with the Cu-
bans now, but the United States, when once convinced of the good inten-
tions and good faith of the Spanish government, can then assure the
Cubans that by following the programme I have indicated, they can have
their líbcrty without firing another shot."


In regard to the propositions of the American govornment heretofore
presented by Mr. Forbes, and to-day renewed by myself, the president
of the council remarked that he could only say, it was impossible to
precede negotiations by either an arrnistice 01' by the abolitiou of slav-
ery; that the latter would at once follow the emancipatíon of the islnnd,
and that a11 these things were bound together and eould 1I0t be sepa-
rated. " Here, then," he repeated, "are the suceessive steps :


"1. A settlement of a basis of agreement which s11a11 assure the gov-
ernment of the United States of the good inteutions and good faith 01'
the Spanish goverument ;


"2. The United States to counsel the Cubans to accept this arrange-
ment;


"3. Cessation of hostilities and amuesty ;
"4. The election of deputies ;
-, 5. Actíon of the Cortes;
"ü. Plebiscit and independence.
" 'I'his being all arraugod in advance between tilo two gOyeI'lllnents,


if the United States could but be satisñed 01' the sincerlty of these pro-
posals, aud would persuade the Cnbaus to accept them, the obiect we
both desire could be accomplished. There will, of course, be difflculties
in the execution of the plan, but they must be met and overcome."


General .Prim concluded with the request that 1 would communicate
his views fully to you, and add that he would be happy to hear and con-
sider any suggestion the government of the United States would make
in the wav of emendation 01' modifíeation of uiatters of detnil.


'I'he tone of the Spanish cabinet has been so manifestly conciliatory,
aud their disposition apparently so eumest for a complete aecord with
the -cllited States, tbat 1 haye seen no occasion as :ret for any intima-o
tion of our futuro policy, as fOl'eshadowed in yonr instrnction .xo. :3. It
is by no meallS improbable that this gon.'l'lllllellt lIIay, before long, as-
sume a more popular form tIma it has yet recein·d. If tIle Cortes fail,
at tllei1' approaching' session in Octobel', as is ~mticipated by many jutli-
cous oDservel's of eyellts, in cllOosillg a king, t1le most obYiollS Rolution
is in tlle popular tcndencies oí' tIle revolutioll. TIlis cOllsi<1el'ation has
increased tlle force of your admollition " not to arouse 01' excite aJl'y just
susceptibilities of tlle goverllment, of tlle ministers, 01' of tlle peoplc of
Spain."


TIle üHlications of a more t1'actable popular temp.er on tll(' snl~jeet oí'
Cuba are multiplying. Yesterday 1 was s110wn an artiele in tllc Diario
de Barcelona deci<ledly favoring a cessioll of tlle j¡;;land to tlw Uuited
States for a fair equivalent; wit11 the reseITation, 110w('''''-'1', tlIat is
alwa,ys made in tIle Spallish joul'nals and in sodety, as wP11 as by min-
isters, that tile insnrrectioll must first be tel'lllinated. 'l'lJe Diario quotes

same views. These expressiolls are t11e more wortlIy oí' notice, appear-

ing in journals of reputation, published in the province which has been
supposed to derive the most advantage from the trade with Cuba; and
it may be worth while to consider in the course of the negotiation
whether some reciprocal commercial advantages might not conciliate
Spanish opinion aud interests in favor of the independence of Cuba.


In regard to the emancipation of sla.ves in Cuba it is quite probable
that the disinclination of the Spanish cabinet to enter into engagements
on the subject at present is attributable in part to tbe embarrassment
such action would cause in Porto Rico, as well as in Cuba, where the
slaveholders are generally the most influential partisans of the home
government,

'VASHINGTON, Augttst 24, 1869.
The propositions of Spain are incompatible with any practicable nego-


tiation. The representativos of the insurrectionary government are
nccessary parties to a negotiation. Free comm unication through the
Spanish lines ís immediately necessary.


The United States cannot ask the insurgente to lay down their arms
nnless the voluuteers are simnltaneously effectually disarmed, and in
good faith disbandcd. This, if practicable, would require time. 'Ve
want to arrest the destruction of life and property, and to stop the out-
rages and annoyances to our citizens. An armistice would effect this
irnmediately, and the terms of the compensation to be made to Spain by
Cuba could then be arrauged between them under the mediation of the
United States. .


You may say that we deem an armistice indispensable to the success
of any negotiation. Spain may in honor grant this at the request of
the United States, and in deference to the wishes of afriendly power,
whose good oftíces she is willing to accept, 'I'his being done, negotia-
tious can innuodiately be opened that will probably result in peace, and
her reeeiving a fair compensatiou.

In this relation the recent articles in La Patrie and La Framce, semi-

to be suceessful, the latter jonrnal suggests that Spain yield the inde-

freqnent and fatal within the Spanish lines. Tho excesses whích have followed the
domination of the Spanish volnnteers in some parts of tho island, sparing neither non-
combatants, nor prisoners of war, nor uuoffending citizens of the United States, have
aroused feelings of indignatíon and horror, which the reflnement and sensibility of the
Spanish nation will be the first to appreciate.


Dnring t.he insnrrection in Cn ba the government of the United States has, in the ut-
most good faith and with great success, exerted its power to perform all its duties and
obligations toward Spain, aurl to maintain its friendly relations with that power. It
has been no casy task for the govo1'llment to restrain its citizens withín the bounds
prescribed by t.he obligations of one frieudly power to another, and to represe the spirit
of
