The InttJUg'*csr publishes a translation of ha CroHico * version of the recent proceed ing* in the Spanish Cortes relative to the fu ture of Cuba, and takes occasion to explain that the originally published translation of a portion ef what ihe Minister of State said on that occasion is incorrect,?that translation having represented him as declaring that '-the island of Cuba cannot continue to be an integ ral part of the Spanish territory4c. When, on the contrary, he said that the island " cat; never enu? to be an integral part of the Spaa ish territory bat by one of two modes," Ac The Elections The result of the recent electlets may be summed up as follows: the Know Jiothi^ir* v?- .? licit nkvu? island and Connecticut by handsome majorities.

British Recruit* for the Crimea ?We con tinue from yesterday's Star our artiole upon thia subject. Whilst referring to the deplorable condl tioa of the English Government at thil eon juncture, end its still sadder prospect for the future; and whilst presenting the suggestion that it Is the United States of America only that oan possibly avert the ultimate destruo* tion of the British Empiie; and that a neocs aity may probably arise for the rendition of our assistance within the next ten years; we would also asiure the Englbh people that if they aet rightly they may confidently rely on suoh aid. Whether England is assailed by Russian or Austrian payonetr, ot the treachery of their present Imperial ally when he has u<ed her best blood sufficiently to answer bis ends, it will be all the same. If our old country kin will, when the orisis comes, smotber a little of their false pride, and appeal ojwn'y and above board and in a respectful and friendly and proper way to the Amerioen people for help in their calamity and danger; and base that appeal solely on the ties of an cient conaenguinity, or as George Canting enoe beautifully said " the ties of a oommon origin, a common language and oommon I*wa;" if they would transfer to us all of the Bahama Islands forthwith for an equivalent, and make Spain sell us Cuba for a fair con sideration, instead ef setting Lord Howden to intriguing with the Frenchman Turgot at Madrid to prevent it; if they would eeaae try in all aorta of ways, to thwart us in our honest and juii wishes at every Court, and in every place where ahe has a diplomatic functionary; at Spain, in Prussia, the Hague, in Peru, at Ayres, in the Braiils, and even in Equador, and at the Sandwich lalanda, and at Honduraa, and in "Greytowo;" and learn to '? mind their own businesa;" if they would abandon the stolen islands of " Routan," and, iifiae, if they would promiae to be neigh, borly and trade fair, and not aeck to chisel as in this place and gougi us In the other, they may rely upon it their invocation thuj becomingly made would not be unheard or unheeded. Just let Lord Clarendon ap proach Mr. Buchanan, and what we say will be verified. We uotioe the British ministry confess in Parliament th*t muskets are scarce ! Why we can provide half a million, and 150 oOO of Hartley's rifles in 30 days. What a h^ppy and glorious scene might open (if the British rulers had any gumption) to the gate ot an astonished and admiring world. Look atthe sublime spectacle ! The descendants of the Yankee rebels against George the Third ?jurying all old feuds and gallantly rallying to the relief of the worthy female, hid gracd daughter, the present Mistress of the British Empire' Oh ! it would be a theme worth} the pea of a Homer We could furnish her tens of thoaaands of volunteer toldiera and seaman, chivalrous champions on the land and on the sea, with clear heads, stout hearts and strong arms, and beef and pork and fljur and o'ho- useful things for war ; and England and the United States united could defy and repel the combined world. It will be the aalvation of England that ahe may be convinced of the practicability and necessity of such alliance When she sees it is indispenaible, wo oan pro vido her alao with what she seems to need grievously in another line. Her want of good s ate-men," up to the age, is quite aa urgent as that for good generals j.nd good soldiers Her navy, if all were aa sagacious as Napio. a-id I?un:as, will perhaps do But she needs i~tn in civil office that have sense enough to d if cover when it is wise to g-j to war, and when ' is wise to avoii it, and who will heed the "id western hunter's maiim, ? When you go on a be cartful to pick your company, a,id not go in a crowd that will claim all the gav:e and >/uarrel before the hunt is up!" 'Jaeen Victoria is really un obj.ot of syro pa hy in ter present fix She has a short sup. i Ij and bad assortment of civil and political counsellors, lacking the ability to make the wu (in whi:h ahe is joined to unsafe allies) I ?it her successful orpopular. Theyoontinually t -tray flagrant unfitneaa to manage her affahs ?nd partial changes don't mend the matter, cr over the first disgrace, or avert that whioh ia in prospect. Mr. Roebuok's quack prescrip tion ahould be put behind the Lack lew, and Koebuck aent to the Crimea in peraon to aid practically ia actual reform Politicians, office-aeekera, cliques, personal and family I are the bane of the English Government, and the true cease of the sad and disgraceful con-1 drion of the Eastern army. The Tery fiwt thing she ahould do is to kick ouAnd keep out the old fogies of ail parties and factions and c.iqaes and families, and bring forward smart aamtious, loyal young men, eschewing law! yera and fledgelings of old families about the court, and preferring those who have their for. tULes to make, honors to win, and families to tuund, as her civil counsellors And next, all her worn out, superanauatcd, effete generals, .-an* of the peninsular wars, should be re!

Mr Squirt, or Mr. Bios I stom, or of tiarry Primrose, Esq., who may be captains or lieutenants, ahould be given leave to oome home. Put in their stead country-bred I men, who know how to get over a fence with-1 out tearing tneir breeches, who krow a mule from an ox, and oan endure hardships without wilting, and who will have a feeling heart for their fellow soldiers, and especially won t butt their heads against a atone wall till they have ascertained the comparative thickness of the subjects of ooliiaion. City bred, ball-room, dandy eiquiaitea, even if nobly born, igth all the laudation and juifo that oan bo got into the newspapera by being paid for, will never make good soldiers, and especially successful commanders I Brother Jonathan can apare (juecn Victoria, if ahe will aak, the tervioes of a Scott, and a' Jesup, and a Wool, and a Persifer Smith, and a Harney, and a May, end a full regiment! more just as good, for their army; and a Stew, art, and a Morris, and a Shubrick, and a Kearney, and a Perry, and an Ingraham, and a II oil ins. and hundreds more for their navy, all worthy to serve with Napier and Dundas, because they are ?? prudent as well as brave;'' aud in the plaee of her present imbecile red tape, blathering civil and political counsellors, I every State in the Union could provide a score I of flrat rate men.

We send her this and yesterday's star by the next steamer for her D "J? uu"P?n> though we suspect that Lord almeraton'a feara and apprehensions will in duce him to keep it out of her right. I Now, in all thia business there is one thing that is to be distinctly understood: Our coun try insists on being unequlvooally impartial; I for impartiality it justice. Soma of oar peo pie think the lata Caar fight, in part for tha i Christian religion, and free trade, and free seas, and they ara in favor of ell three of theee doctrinee; and his treaty, that free ships should naka free proods, hai htlped'him won derfally In their good ofinUn; and othera don t like the sight of four or fire fellows pitching into one* If thaXrhnean fight is in any sense to be considered a ? free fight" for all comers and goers, it mast be really free as to all parties, and every one shoald be at lib arty to take the side ha likei best If the young gentleman who ia now Char or Emperor of Russia (we believe his name is Aleck, and learn he is quite an agreeable men) shoald conoeive that ha is about gettiag into serioas 'rouble, he, too, is at perfeot liberty to profit by the hints we hare above gIvM. And| deed, we would Suggest to oil, that in order to .r^are the fighting being Mttll done each one cf the belligerents?Russia, Turkey, Kranoe> 'England, Kgypt, Sardinia, and Austria (if aha r?illy is "?? the ciotcd"? should send for a few prime pattern Yanhea b'hoya to teach them how te do it. They wouli repeat to them, in dauble quick time, Louisburg, Lexington, Bunker's Hill, Saratoga, Trenton, Princeton, Monmouth, Brandywiue, Kutaw, Yorktown liridgewatar, .Niagara, Chippewa, Lundy's Line. Plattsburg, Champ'.sin, Erie, New Or leans, Resaca, Palo Alto, Monterey, Baena Vista, Vera Crux, Cerro Cordo, Contreras, Churubuaco, Chepulfepeo, aid Mexico over again. And their sweethearh at home seed not be apprehensive, for there u no doubt th-y would hare sense enough not to shoot one another as long as there was acybody else to shoot. Bat badinage apart, we have referred to the attempted British enlistments in the United - ?2tea, because we wish to put ou record the vigilant efforts of the Federal officers to en force our neutrality laws, becave we wish the British pre-s to preserve their onsistenoy, by giving them due oredit therefore; and because wt ere furnished a complete aniwer to British ta?!-. c that the Yankees are disposed to med dl> tho affairs of the OKI Wold. And we have still another notive for this reference, whioh is, that it gives us occasion to express our opinion of the miserible folly and ?inpidiiy of the British rulers ii not having discovered before this that thy have hun dreds of millions of a ores of valuable vacant lands in their provinces on this lontinent and ia the East Indies and in Austrriia, which, if they had a spark of practioal common sense, they could use to arouse the sltggiah patriot ism and awaken the dormant Ityalty of their masses to Gil at once the ranks o.' their armies. Lot them follow the example >f the United States and donate to each Britah subject, as a bounty for enlistment for thr-;e years, five hundred acres of these lands, besides pay, ' k'ng? and subsistence, and ranspartation with their families, if any, to tie lands, and farther subsistence for six months at the end of the term of service, and depend upon it one himdred thousand reoruits will effar them selves in thirty days. Suoh a course would transform thousands of their ndigent and wretched agricultural " lower clasies" into respectable, because independect freeholders, w:!h bright prospects for themselves and their uescendants, instead of the pentry and cheer less gloom they now only see in the future. It would transport them into countries where the old English virtues could be cherished, because in their new residence the oomforts and enjoyments of life would not be exclu sively monopolised by the nebly born or wealthy few W hy this neglect in England of the labor irg classes ? Are they only cared for as they may contribute to the ease of the aristocracy? C.innct it be seen that the polioy indicated would promote the interests ef all classes? The military oapital possessed by the British Government in its wild lands would, if pro perly used, increase its military capabilities and streng'h three fold, and this with but lit tle additional expense. When will the British aristocracy learn wisdom?when will the les sons of history oease to be lo3t upon them ? j Metternich once said the British nobility owed a heavy dobt to the people whioh would some time be exacted from them; and for this Palmers ton sent him out of England. The ?? time he predicted is fast approaching, on '.as 'he nobility take warning and adopt pre ventives. Whan the disease once seises the body politic of England, there will be no cure. The aristocratic pillars of tho Bri-ish consti tution and the power and influence of the no bility will have departed?will crumble into | rains The measure we have suggested is ene of the best, because one of the easiest preven tives that can be adopted. John Ball might likewise if* really anxious to bo philanthropic towards eertain of bis faithful and valuable subjects in Jamaoia and thereabout, he could use them profitably in the approach'ng tommer campaign against Sebas topol, and when the war is ended, eoloniie those that survive it at the Cape or in Sierre Leone He might better their oaDdition, and it could not be made worse This hint is worth reflecting upon by the Privy Council and the War Minister. The Africanixatioa of Cuba ?We are in duced to place little oonfidenoe in the version which the Spanioh Government's organ in New ^ork; La Crovica, gives of the recent remarks oi M Lusuriaga, tho Spanish' Minis ter of State, in the Cortes upon tha fatare in tentions ef Spain with reference to slavery in Cuba. Accoants of any such affair so widely different from the truth as theirs would be if that of La Cronica were true, would instant ly co*t their Madrid correspondents their ?everal places. They have no inducement to misrepresent tha speech in question, while La Cromea has, as the oonduotors of that journal know well that if the other journals are oor rect a storm will sooner or later arise in tha United States which will be likely to cos: Spain Cuba. W e fear, therefore, that it i? misstating the truth, and that the Spanish Government, having cunningly waited until our Congress separated, and being under the impression that the next American House of Representatives will surelv b. uu .l.v.r, and opposed to th. ?,nUiuoo of Cob., tun ?t length formally broKhod the Ktemeof rerenge against tho Cubans for their re.tlM.ne.. under tha Spanish ,oke, which the? h"' long ,n.tained in oono.nln.ent W. .ball bylsd ind?d, ,f lhii inn out differently, thongh ?. confo.. ,h.t j,.t no. our fear. in thi. oonnnotion sr. much strongw than our hopes. ^ Mr. Wadaworth Hainan?, of Bt Uul.
