The erii or says: '? The policy of annexing Cuba has been a subject ot national interest and national dis cussion for more than thirty years. Daring this wb"!e period th? great importance ot tho arqaisiticn has been felt and declared by the le4jii.g statesmen of both parties, under every administration from Mr. Monroe to tho pres cn: tiu.e Mr torsyih. as minister to Madrii in 1^:2; Mr. Adoas. as Secretary of State in 1823; Mr City, as Secretary of State in 1S2'?; Mr. A. 11 Everett, as minister to Spiin in 1*26 ; Mr Van Buren. as Secretary of State in lo.J; Mr. Stevecson as minister to England ia 1-37; Mr. Webster, as Secretary of State in ISIS; Mr Irving, as minister to Spain in 1843; Mr. Upshur, as Secretary of State in 1 M; Mr. Buchanan, as Secretary of State in 1-17, Mr. Sanders, as minister to Spain in hb?ail these leading and iatiuential mem.

The annexation of lu^a ha* i>een made m exesption to tho gen er. 1 ryle ot territorial acquisition by the most ] r miaent and earnest opponents of'that poli ty.

An f ffanded Clerk ?Some one, who s'gns himself "Clerks," attacks aa vigorously in tho oolumnsof an evening cotemporary, on aocount of an article lately appearing in oar paper, oalling on the head* of bureau to pat a stop to idle sea? on the part of a few persons in the Government service under them. ? We have to write few words in reply. Whon the clerks under the Government stood in need of a friend, they fonnd ene in the Sfar?one laboring with all possible xeal, and laboring successfully, too, to bettor their condition. We refer to the occaiion when Congress were to determine whether or not to increase their compensation. Subsequently we have suffered no opportunity to pass wborcin we could do them, as a class, a good tarn. Those now in charge of public affairs here have striven faithfully to equalise the labors of those for the proper discharge of whose du ies thoy are responsiblo. This is a fact too notorious to be contradioted. The result has been that for the last year or two there have been lees com plaints of unfairness and inequality in the amount of duty required from gentlemen in publio employment here, than ever before. We never before knew a time, in all our ex perience in W ashington, when the great mass of the GoverLment clerks in this city were as well satisfied with tho distribution of their duties a> throughout the past year. This great mass are faithful men, and we purpose to look out for their interest only in this connection. ^Ve are not willing to see thu Wthfni m?ny ? t..... vu iwt ine accommodation of the un faithful few. ilence the paragraph to which "Clerks," evidently one of tho latter clasi, take3 exception. Wo bolievo the best way to present the recurrence of a state of things under which A, B and C must do the work in addition to their own, for doing which D ia paid out of the Treasury, is to stop the prac tise iu the bud to which we referred. Every Administration on being seated in powor here strives to work reforms. Yet it is rare to find their g>od intentions holding out more than two years. This is a fact notorious to all old residents of Washington. In this case the two years have just passed. As it is necessary for the reil interest of the great mass of the Gov ernment s employees at this point, we felt it to be our du'y to note publicly the first evi dences r.f a disposition on the part of a fow persons to break the rule which has operate 1 so nrnoh for the comfort cf the so great majority of the clerks who strive conscientiously to dis charge theii whole duty. We took it for granted that those to whom honest labor is irksome would fiod fault with the paragraph in question, and misrepresent and misapply it, as docs the writer to whom wo are replying, who is evidently 6omeolerical politician by trado, whose chicf aim is to threw upon his ollepguee the labors which he should, rightfully, perform while absent from his post on one pretenco or another. Jfe is conscious that the cap firs him, and so l^cks brains as to step forward and put it on. ilia waole article bears evidence that ho feels our rimarks as applicable direotiy to himself We are content that he should thus appro priato thera and he may growl at us to his neart a content. Bat we have to aFsure him that when we again find him throwing labors on his colleagues, lor doing which in propria p-isoua ho is iegula-ly paid, we ihall take the liber y, for ihe credit of tho many henor ub:? an 1 faithful gentlemen on whom ho b:icg? discredit, of correcting his derelictions beioro they come to a pa?g which miy mike it neces sary to deprive his wife and chiidrcn of bread, for tho ?3ke cf the service in which he is nominally engaged. Characteristic ?It seems that the Legisla ture of Massachusetts were somewhat unfor tunate in their selections for the now so infa mooj "smelling committce."-the committee to visit and examine thoaa shocking place*, the female sjhools kept by Sisters of Charity, who? good wo;kJ have been the theme of praue cf the philanthropic, the enlight ened and th* truly honorable for half accntu ry at least. Proof of this fact ij to be found m the following which we take from a late number of tho Boston JUrald. The nann.-r ies to which the editor refers as Laving beer. vi*;ted by this man, ure houses of ill-fame: Cc'H^iArRDI'1'vRT Labors op o*e op the V.0MM1 iTr,c o.\ AtJ5NERiKs ?One of tho com mitteo of the Legislature, appointed to exam inotha nuiinoiioaof the Commonwealth, per formed somo extraordinary feat, in the way of n.ves.igation last evoning and suffered siie in consequence. This gentleman who represents a town in western*MassacbusSte 2khed?him8 ?f 7 ,T?r ,aw' aDd has distin u i/n ii -? y L" zoul in "arching for idden iniquities in our nunneries Yesterday he visited Lowell, with others of the commS toe, for tho purpose cf visiting the nunneries of that city, and laat evening he made a tour Kor'irJ^thTc'lfy^ ?" street, and it appears that the nun? in that in eiitution treated him very Udly, for when he emerged from its cloistered walla, he was ex cefcnely luebriatod, and his pockets had been erTJ f0d CJUt A ?;in? boys ^ ?aB?u a'Zroucdod him until ho was tak.n icte the National House, and kindly provided for during the night.

These visits to Nunneries, especially those established luthi3 city, arc awfully expensive." It will, doubtless, striko all right thinking men that it is by no means wondotful that the now tamuui commitfeo behaved themselves like blackguards and brutes in the female school in Rozbury, with aucb men asi.de scri jed above aaor.g i;8 members. Pretty f#?l. lows ara tu=h genii men, indeed, to be ic trusted with the duty of gu;irdiEg pubHc 1 morals and the cau.se of tree Christianity ' which are the functions, it i8 pretended, the committee in queaiionj^as raised to discharge! mmTJ Evidec?? -A day or two since, we r u n * Very n9f of en opinion of !bi Pen-ion Gffija, confirmed by the So;.-e tary of the Interior, upon the subject ?.f record evidence before that bureau. As but an in distinct undemanding cf that ruling can be Obtained from our abstract of it, we'deom it Us', to publish at length the letter from which the jynopris in question was made : Prssion Orrics, April 2 1355. ion have uscired ma to givn vou mv opinion hi to the true mraoiug tli0 word* "r^ord evidfenec," as ,?ed in The 3d reetlon of t-e aoi ontitied "an act in addition to ci?rtain ?nd Kfif til from these rrrsier^ properly%uthcnti3' fa are reoord evidence. lUgUiars of service are juaaUy made by ancfficer whohS Charge ot the muiier roll, or czderly book of the company, or the pay roll of the reg-'ment or corps to which ho belongs. There rolls are mado cotemporaneously with the transactions they are intended to perpetuate, and as they are subject to the daily supervision of those whose scrvioes are thero narrated, they are regarded as possessing as high evidence of verity m any record. These are, therefore, record evidence of military service. Tran scripts from these roll*, oortifieJ by a public officer with whom they are legally deposi ed, or sworn copies of these rolls made by oredible persons, will be received as record evidence of mi!itary service under said act. But thero may be other record evidenco of military service. For instance, the records of many towns Bhow that cortaiu individuals served as the quota for such towns in the Rev olutionary war. The historical societies in many of the States contain evidence of the military ssrvice of individuals whose names are not found on the muster or pay roll of any corps Many well accredited histi ries furnish evidence of individual military service that cannot be elsewhere fcund. It is not to be supposed that those and other like proofs of servico are to be disregarded. It may be dif ficult to establish any general rule upon this subject to which there may sot be many ex ceptions But as a general rule, I will say that any entry respecting military sorvice made by a person in the day and time of the transaction, whose duty required him to ob serve and register the fact, will be regarded as reoord evidence of suoh sersice. The re quisites necessary to make such entries ad missable are?first, tbat tho entry appear to have been mado cotemporaneously with the act; and. second, that the entry be made by a person whose duty requirod him to note and register the transaction, 'lhe nroper applica tion of this rule will enable a person to estab. lish a claim by reoord evidence, or evidence quasi record, and will prevent the evils arising from the admission of parol evidenoe fo ptove r;,VrV tcrvlu*?' ??1,a Which have been a t rui ru 1 source_pf the numerous frauds hereto fore committed upon this department, and against which Congress intended to provide by the introduction of this provision with this aot. I remain, yours, Ac , L. P. Waldo, Oommlfsloner. J. S. Edwards, Esq. Vigcettea. As the j.rea?ury Department contemplate hereafter having vignettes on their warrants, so as to distinguish the pur pose for which each may be drawn without requiring delay to read then?, Mr. J. Golds borough Bruff, our talented fellowcitiien, who i? employed &3 a designing draughtsman in that branch of tbe Government, has recently oompleted a number of designs to that end. 'Ihat of warrants connected with collecting revenue from customs represents a box of goods with a barrel standing by it, an open manifest upon the box, and a trident laying i across the manifest That for revenue from lands, &c , represents a compass with telescope on the extended tripod, and the scales balanced aorcss the tel escope with a wreath of tropical vegetation gracefully rising up around the tripod. That for the judicial expenses' warrant rep resents a book labelled "Laws U. S.," on which the fasces stand, ovor which tho scales of jes tice hang, surmounted by the cap of liberty. That for the warrants issued for the redemp tion of the public debt represents a hand thrust out from clouds, in which the thirteen s ars are seen clustered, with American coin baing scattered from the hard. Ihat for the Interior Department warrants ii a raagniEcen buffalo roaming the prairie, ihat for the'War Department warrants?a pluxol helmet resting across a sword, with different sized balls und bullets lying around. That for naval service warrants represents tao prow and breast of a man-cf war, floating, ready for action. And the design for miscellaneous Treasury warrants represents a Treasury vault, with jtae Ln?ted States coat-of arms on the door, and fcsccs pillars, with a Treasury key Iajing a: ita feet, and tho American eagle surmount ing the whole. Wo have seldom seen so perfect a collection ox designs as tho;e, which do as much credit tothe artist in their concoption as in the skill with which they have been executed. Ihe Feorias.? A day or two since, we pub j I^hed some facts bearing on the titles to out | lots in Peoria, III. We were thus reminded of the oxistance c-f the remnant of the Aborigi nil tribe from which Peoria takes its name They are one ot tho oldest tribes known to ^urth American history, occupying the site of Peoria, 111 , when tho celebrated grant (not recognised by thL- Government) was made by Fritco to Renault. Thoy are now very few ia number, and are located on theO^age iiror we?t of the Missouri, and west and adjoining the reservation of tho PUnkadhaws, where they have 5*4,000 acres of land only. -luzuriatja't Speech.?The Baltio's mails seem to us to fet at resl the question as to the truth of the different versions of Luzuriaga's late speech in the Cortes at Madrid. Before they came to band, wo were of opinion the version published by La Cromca, was incor rect. We now have tho specch in extenso, and find that if the questioned portion be translate! according to tho ideas of the cor respondent of La Press*?so as to make him deolare the purpose of the Spanish Govern, mont to bo to abolish slavery, it will be to make him contradict the drift of all tho rest ef his remarks. We may also add that the Madrid oorres. pon ient of the other Paris papers, credit him as La Croiric% does, with having pledged his government not to interpose against the insti tution of elavery ia the island. As in all mat tcrs our purpose is only to publish the truth concerning public affairs abroad as well as at home, we hasten to acknowledge what now seems to be the error into which we fell yes terday.
