? Til CDB1H qUKSTIOI IN IBIIPli Optelmu of tk( British Prm, from the London Herald. September 0 J The Nkw York Herald and other or the United BUM papers make a might/ uproar about the laughter of these fifty-two vagabondizing adrentu/ers, thus engaged in an expedition by whioh the lives of peaceable hundreds of thousands were perilled. All New York, say the aeoounts, was in a fermest. and New Orleans biasing. Meetings were called, or excited to be oalled, all over the the Union, to devise measures of vengeance against the people, who were only defending their o vn homes and hearths. We are not now about to reenter into the Cuban question, which can be more appropriately discusses on another occasion, whioh will shortly present itself. Hut we may take leave to tell Mr. Daniel Webster, great statesman as he undoubtedly is, that the fifty millions of dollars which he has tifered the Spanish government for the purohase of Cuba will not buy it without the consent of the English government, and the reasons why we may explain to him hereafter. [From the London Globe, Sept 6 ] Cuba has been invaded by a fresh batch of buccaneers; and this time thty have brought down a terrible retribution on thoir heads. Fifty-two of f Lopez's followers were captured, and shot the same morning. We attsoh very little credit to a narrative of the mutilations said to have been indicted on the remains of the prisoners after exeoition. Two things only seem quite beyond dispute?that the Spanish authorities determined to give the pisatical foree such a lesson as was expeotod effectually to cool the oourage of future sympathizers, ana mat tne populace of Mew York hare been thereby vtimnlated to a fever heat of excitement and indignation. There are probably not a dozen men in Engls nd vho will not agree with iu that the euffererson this occasion have bedb very rightly served. The desperadoes of all nations who assembled under Geneial Lopez's flag, knew perfectly well the danger that they ran; they wore taken in th commission of wholesale robbery and murder, and nobody has any more business to complain of thair treatment than of the equally snmmary justice which would be done on any rovers in tho Chinese or Bornean seas. The Viceroy of Cuba has met this violation of all international law by a determination to stretch the law on his own side to its very widest limits. He has exercised a most bloody and unsparing justice; still white we filly allow that it is justice after all, wo greatly fear that it will turnout as impolitic as it is unquestionably inhuman. [From the British Army Despatch, September 12.] 1 be attention ot this country, for the last thirtyfive years of peace, has been occupied by events so near in their interests, so various in their oharaoter, and so rapid in their succession, that objects at a distance from the sphere of immediate action, apv peered frequently to have lost their due magnitude nd importance. Every political chance not directly a fleeting the affairs of Europe have passed away as an obscure underplot in the great drama, the play of which is liberty, real or imaginative, of which the catastrophe is still in suspense. The scanty portion of public discussion which had formerly been bestowed on the events which have at intervals taken place in the .Spanish American colonies, presents a striking illustration of this remark. From the days of Montesquieu to the present time, a successful revolution in Cuba has been the speculation of successive philcphors, the favorite vision of enthusiasts, the hope and object of evou practical statesmen To exaggerate its importance would be difficult, if we take at the measure of that importance, its necessary influence on tho condition and happiness of a large portion of the inhabitants of the west India islands?still more, if we tako into account its remoter consequences, and the elote < on nee'.ion of the destiny of America, with that of Europe, and more especially of England. No wonder, then, that this at this time excites some degree of interest in this as well as in ether countries. It seems quite evident that ths presont revolu'.ion in Cuba is not entirely the effect of party intrigue, or of a temporary ami casual burst of discontent; but that, proceeding from cauies in their nature radical and certain, thouxh gradual in their operation, it has extended itself witnout previous concert orer the whole, more or lets, 01 that large island, has survived the trials of dofosts, and of civil dissentions, and, in all human probability, can terminate only in one of the following results,? either in the independence of the natives, or such an alteration in tne system ot' tho Spanish gsvernment as may induce them to acquietce in the future supremacy of the mother country ; the most effectual steps should be taken at onee; their absolute ami unconlitimal and permanent snbjugation is far beyond the power of . 'pain can hardly be doubtI ed by any one who considers the present weakness 1 of that country, and compares the strength relatively with her distance from the seat of war, and the resources and conduct of the contending parties. Whatever may be the comparative probability ot the two results which we have stated, it unquestionably becomes this country to adopt aud to sustain a steady line of policy consistent with nations' honor, and not to be warped cither by sordid view< of interest, or by any vague notions of uodiscrim inuring philanthropy. The mere recital of the name of Cuba?the vas extent of the island, its mountains, its forests, an its real or fabulous riches, have iu all ages capti vat ed the imaginations of men, and inflamed th> spirit of adventure. This impression his bssn ran dered more forcible by the consideration, that rich as this favored region is in the productions of tho tropics, and possessing all the natural facilities of internal traffic, and offoreign oommerce, they have been depressed by a system of govern men', not more harassing to the governed than ineffi dent for its own narrow purpore*. It would have been no creditable symptom of the state of p-ublio feeling in England, if it had been altogether unmoved on a question forcibly applying itaelf to so many juit sentiments and lofty prejudices; nty, if its tondensaws Karl not Kr?#n rat map rarnMKin than ratkavaisa tn <L cause of the patriots. Uat on the other hand, when it ii taken into account how prone to change is the genius of the present age, and how fearful are the untried chances of a struggle which shakes society to its foundations through an island nearly NX) miles in extent, and involves thousands of all ranks, habits, colors, and conditions, in a bliody, desultory, and apparently interminable warfare, we aay well rejoice that the government of this country has not suffered itself to bf ?o for infected ss to foment a contest of such a character by any assistance or encouragement. We are no more the ptnegyriits of legitimise * authority in all times, circumstance, and situations, than we nre'the idvoeafes of jtut revolution I in the abstract. We should regret that the Cohans were subdued before they have secured to themselves a change of system?the removal of absard end oppreseive restrictions on their industry, their trade, and their private enjoyments. If these concessions had been spontaneously offers! by the mother country at an earlier psri. i, they woull prebebly have conciliated the colony. If theseeoncessioae ?h mid be extorted from Spain as the ?*iee of ftsture submission, to tJpiiu herself they will be productive of equal or even of greater benefits than to the Colonies.

Opinions at llu rnn?h Pram. jTmilital from La Jotml 4m Debate, Sept 10.] The papers and correspondent* from A atriea, wkloh we reeeiTed to-day, bring us aeooants of ths excitement produoed, in all the States of the Union, bj the last new a from Harana. Cuba! Cuba! has become the watchword?the war cry. It is the name which is in all mouths, which is hoard in all the public places, in all the popular meeting*. If the reports arc not exaggerated, it is possible that, in all the ports ofthe United States, acruaade trill immediately be oomonenoed for conquering the richest oolony left to Spain. In the meantime, the Americans, aocording to their oustoin, are retaliating upon their own territory. As we published yesterday, the patriots of New Orleans besieged and aaoked the residence of the Spanish onsul in that eity. The consul took refuge in the prison, wharo hs was guarded by the police and an armed foroe, who were not certain of being able to protest him. Before this beautiful exploit, the same patriots plundered and sasked the office of a Spanish paper, published in the city, and performed the same ope ration at me cigar I tores orSpanish merchants The Americans seek to justify these savage acts on account of the exeoution which the invaders of Cuba justly deserved. We may regret the tad and bloody end of the hundreds of unfortunate men sent to plunder and to death by Now Orleans speculators, but it is impossible to doubt the justice which overtook them. Tho adventurers, who, in a time of peaoe, plotted and oognized, in the faoe of day, an armeu expedition against the possessions of a friendly nation, were, according to all the rule* of the law of nations, purely and simply pirates. Those whom they were going to attack, in their property, in their wealth, in their houses owned by them, ono other answer than that owed to thieves, who, with arms in their hands, attack you in your homes. The expedition which has so fatally terminated, was only the sequel of another attempt, which was unsuooes^fal, several months before. After the first invasion, the Spanish authorities had the generosity, or the weakness, to release the prisoners, with the warning that in case of another invasion thoy would execute the law in all its rigor. A second invasion took place; it took place uuder the most aggravating oircum stances. The American government, even, repudiated the buccaneers who disgraced the federal in making it a banner of pirates; thoy hvl openly declared that those who thus violated all the laws of civilized nations, had no right to the protection of their country, and that they Bhould be abandoned to the fate merited by the in. In a word, they were put beyond the law; and the Spanish government, in shooting fifty in the public plaza, acted strictly right. The American) arc in the greatest excitement, but that happens to them very often. They think very hard that the Spaniards received with guns a bund of pirates, who came to burn their houses; and they declare that they would execute, without mercy, those who should go to their country, and that they would even arm the slaves. Hut the Americans have, for a long time past set up a law of nations, for their particular use. They eolertained of themselvoi, of , their dignity, and of their involability, such an { opinion, that in their mind, all is permitted upon { the earth and upon the sea, to a free oitizon of the United Stutes. Another fundamental article ef their code, is that the New World, witheut exoep I tion ta owned, by right of birth, to tho Amerioaa I republic. It ia an idea, to whioh they always gave utterance, which haa been proclaimed, more than once, in the presidential messages, and which they will alvavs preserve in their mind. It is their divine right. Oar old Europe, 10 much calumniated, has, however, more distinct notions of meum and tuurn. Tno young American republic has, in tbis respect, a ; larger conscience. Our demoora's said, lately, that all monarchies are based upon armed conquest and spoliations. We answered them, in giving the example of Amerioa; and we did not know then that new fccts would oome ao soon to justify o ir opinion. ' Surely we will not say that the Americans are pirates, because they are republicans. First, we can give that name only to such citizens of the Union who take a part in such acts; and as for the federal government itself, we acknowledge that it has disavowed them. Hut it ia impossible fir us not to remark the incomprehensible results of a form of government which is every day presented to fr as a model, as a tpye. Spain is, at this moment, at peace with the United States. They are two friendly countries?two allied nations; yet that does not prevent, in the porta of the Union, the American citizens from openly org inizing armed expeditions to land upon the territory of that allied country. A first attempt is unsuccessful; the federal government puts beyond the law all those who 1 would take a part in similar violations of the international law. They laugh at the government. Preparations begin anew upon a larger scale; enlistments are openly made, with all the resources of the moit unlimited publioity; the day and the hour of the sailing of the expeditions are known, and the go nuuicuv uisuro uv svioiu^v iu ikup ib. nuw, uibucr tbe American government is without power to repress the crime, or it is an accomplice; and in that ca?e, aa in the other, we do not find that it presents to ua a moat glorieui and a moat honest moaol. The apology given by the Americana, we mean thoae who seek to justify the expeditions directed agairat tbe island 6f Cuba, is, that thev act aa auxiliaries of a national movement, whtoh has beon declared by the population itself of the iylaqd, in order to aid the insurrection of the Creole party. The last events must nave destroyed all tbe illusions that they had formed in this respect. It ia now acknowledged that the entire population of the island fought against tbem, aal .they have not fonnd in the cities, and in the fields, the supJ port npon which tbey counted. It hat been often said, particularly in tha New Orleans papers, that indignities were committed npon the remains of the untortunatc men who were shot by tbe Spanish military. These reports hare bee a contradicted by the papers of the federal government. Tne truth is that the authorities of Ilavana were obliged to display an armed foroe, for the protection of the condemned against the anger of the population; and the execntions took place ami 1st thi cries of "Long Life to the Queen," by the exasperated eolonitts. An American paper gives some just reflections on tkat execution. The Americans who speak thus are right. The pretended national movement of the Cuban population was an American invention; it was a story invented In New Oikana by speculators and agitators, and entertained and puffed by the journals of the Southern States, for a lucrative end, perhapi, but not a very honorable one. " I l < American sympathisers have been mistaken,! they reckoned on a ftrontmciam'.n'.o ot the; but tbe inhabit tnts of the Island know perfectly well that their independence would not bs of long duration, bat would lead to what is railed annexation?to an absorption into a columnar y fort ign to them by baiiiU, religion, and language.

Hut to con Sue ourleliea to the present, it is certain that Spain can Mill anure to bene Ir.fur a great length oftitne, the voluntary dependence ef her magnificent colony, on the simple condi'ion of making some a lininia Hatty# reform* Whatever may have tuen the result of the introduction of the constitutional rfgtwir in Spain herself, it is incontevtihle that the island of Cuba has not to congratulate iteelf on the charge. The island is rich and productive, and is in that respect what ?*icily war formerly to the Horn ana, their granary It has, therefore, eoma in pun inn i?i wr? ntfruiuei aan tea toe anfvrrtit ministers of r'pain to torn the island of Uaba into an instrument o'government.

Ou mum would be certain to Moure victory for the peoples of Europe ega'nst the orowntd coaspi reoy of Austria end her allies; we indicated that eouree last week; but let us new pjiat out its advantages rather more specifically. With Austrianism advancing unresisted to the conquest of Europe, with England acquiescing if not aiding that inhuman conquest, we have counselled the peoples of Europe to seek a leader in the natural head of the damooraoy of the world?the great republic of Aaerioa. it would be quite possible to pi ace at the head of revolutionary forces, an Amerioan general, bearing the star-spangled banner of the Union; it would be quite possible, in due oourse, to engage even the government of tho American republic in the same service, and to dictate from Washington the terms for the capitulation of Vienna and S?. Petersburg Foremost among the politioal advantages of such a plan would be its tenaenoy to override tho jea lousiesand reciprocal distrusts which might still be a source of weakness to the federation of peoples. In almost every oouutry the natioual party is divided upon eertain internal and ulterior questions; although Germany is beooining almost entirely democratic, there are still constitutionalists among its publio men; in Italy there are constitutionalists and republicans, federalists and Unitarians; in France there is ne absolute majority, th )u<rh one might be created by the mero fact of pro claiming a crusade against absolutism, on grounds sufficiently broad. The first great objeots to secure are, the national independence of each nation, and the freedom of each people; leaving internal and ulterior questions to be settled by each people when it shall be free to act, and relioved from alien control. We have no fear that the democratic party of Europe will be unable to subdue the jealousies and unite in action against the coninou enemy; but no one can be blind to the fast that each section of that party might bo indisposed to accept the lead of any other seotien, lest it should appear, iy*o facto, to give up its own defensive principle. Such mistrust would not apply to an American ' leader?territorially remote, not implicated in the seotional questions of Europe, abo' e all suspicion on tne score of sincerity in the vindioatioa of liberty, the republic weuld be-e'pecially fitted to take the lead iu the strnggle for national inlopcndeuco and popular froodom, without projulging the external question of any one nation We believe that the mere hoisting of the star-spangled banner on the field of Europe would call fort! the vast body of the peoples of Europe?a rising of the peoples from the Rhine t? the Danube, from the Baltic to the Mediterranean, against organised tyranny. Even to the United States the polltioal advantages would be considerable. Too unemployed energies, which are beginning to raise trcubleioino questions at homo, would iiud a glorious ani beneficial vent in that more dut int field. Action of that kind might help the republicans to gain time, and with time, powgr, for the deliberate settlement of that social question which presses upon thorn most dangerously. It would enable them to force back, to European ground, that class of disputes which English abolitionists, aided by manoeuvring English diplomatists, now make them discuss so inconveniently on American ground alone. Besides, is not European intervention?the intervention of European governments?between the Americans and the Spaniards, at laBt become imminent in Cuba 1 Th? wnrkinff Alt nf norf oSn wnliki/tml vtartKlama ah the continent, would be of vast service to tho English pcoplo, and not less no to the English colonies. One of the first advantages would bo, that England would find its faculties of speejh and action unlocked from the present nightmare of doubt and apathy; and it weuld not long suffer its gorerhmont to abstain from taking its proper place by the side of tbe republic, with France at the head of the antidespotic movement. Hut the commercial and economical advantages of the great movement would not bo less strikiag than the political. Upon these, for the preseut, wo must necessarily touch briefly ; but wo beseech the reader to think out tbe considerations which we indioate. For the Americans, we need not enlarge upon the pickings which are to be enjoyed in the conquered treasures and the captarod palaces of imperial luxury ; but we mean far more solid and general advantages. For example, the shipping of the I nited States, which now seek an unpleasant and hazardous employment in the slave trade, might find more congenial and not less profitable employoment in the crusade against despotism. In that respect tbe United State) might perform the functions of Venioe during the crusades against the less barbarous Sarsiens. Eng1 sh capital would find abundant employment in supplying the newly freed industries of Europe with the means of developing internal resources. Indeed, this emancipation of Europe would realize the true complement of fiee trade ; at pre* nt, trade finds its foremost antagonist In the Zolivercign ; which absolutism is to imitate and extend ioAu)triaaad Italy; Hungary, who would joia with Eogland, is pinioned by Austria; Turkey, free in deposition, is kept poor Russian intimidation. Tbe emancipation of Europe would be tho > first step towards(cxtecding the alliances of commerce over tbe whole field. Imagine the trade of j a Russia set fre 1 The same process would o^en the trade of Eurcpe to the colonies Canning talked of " calling anew world into existence," when he reanized the Sonth American states ; but this eru- j e would call the old world into existsnoe for tho new. Need wc dwell on the sooial advantages of the movement I Every state engaged would feel them aaples, none, Milan, and Baden can tell what are the hideous crucltiei?the oppressions of fantastical taxation, the inquisitorial tyranny of an official priesthood, the imprisonments, the Hoggings of men and women, the subjection of women ami children to the brutalities of a licentious alien soldiery, and not less licentious native gendarmerie?cruelties now daily inflicted by the Holy Allianoe throughout so much of Kurope as it already possesses And the frontier of the region possessed by that bad power is daily spreading. Of course Italians, Amtrians, Germans, Hungarians, Hi he- ' mians, would be glad to escape from that shocking thrall Western Europe would be well pleased t > see the onward march of that system checked. France would be more tranquil if the p)polar tarty were endowed, as it would bo, with a decided preponderates. A period of political action, of hope, and of commercial diligence, would be beneficial to us in England, socially as well as oominsrcially and politically. Wc forcree two objections to the suggestion of the alliance of peoples be ided by the United states? I the English (economists will objsot on the score that war always en-ails expense; the Americans, on the score that Washington and Jefferson be| queathed the precept of non-intervention. Tosse two great men lived before the Holy Alliance. ; They bad not read in the Timtx a bint that, if American avenged American blood in Tubs, there might be a combined demand for explanations from the maritime Mates of Europe.

We pais over all the objections that may be fairly brought against any scheme which, in its operation, though not, perhaps, in its intention, might alcogethsV swamp any very meritorious and useful classes of the community, which might sacrifice the rural population to that of the towns, or vice versa,. These are considerations which no thoughtful statesman would willingly overlook, though they are seldom mentioned by the violeut partisans of household suffrage, except to be pooh-poohed with the boisterous contempt of ignorance. Nor, again, will we dwell on the obvious expediency of so contriving any change that it should entail the least prosper, of a permanent agitation for the purpose of revoking it. But taking this idea of household suffrage purely by itself, will any one say that there is a chance of its " working well, or satisfying the people for any length of time T In our opinion it would include tboae classes with whom the franchise is a matter of creditable pride, but who are not wholly without other moans of makibg their iolluonoe felt; while it would exclude those with whom the franchise is, rightly or wrongly, considered a matter of life and death, and whom all experience shows us will continue to plague us till they get it. Look at France, where even the restricted suffrage of the Jlstof May is enormously more comprehensive than any household suffrage ever proposed in England, and where, nevertheless, the cry for the restoration of universal "suffrage is infinitely more violent thau any aiovemcnt directed even against our owa pre'eut system of representation. We may fix the exact line of demarcation a tew shillings higher or lower, we may out the country up into as many districts as wo please, and adjust to a man the exact numerical force ol each, thoro will still remain the grand difficulty hew to provide for the excluded millions of the working classes. And we n lver cac repeat too often that the groat problem for a statesman is how to satisfy this demand, without thereby letting in a deluge to overwhelm all the existing irstitutions of tho empire. It is now two or three years ainoo Lord John Kussell showed the surpassing superiority of his cultivated intelligence over the mass of noisy <v?. k..., i _i? w . _? the possibility of gi ring a franchise to the members of mechanics' institute*, or to workmen whs hid in rested a given sum in any sarings bank. It matters little whether in the first ease each member has a separate vote, or whether a collective one?as in Kossuth's scheme for parUuiontary reform in Hungary, and in Mr. llowfand's Hill's plan for a municipal suffrage for the town of Adelaide, in Australia?is given to a greater or less number of individuals. It is enough that any suoh proposal would meet the precise difficulty that we have been explaining, and it would meet it by what would virtually oe a system of double election! For the virtue of double election docs not consist in any complicated machinery of colleges and p-esiient*. but in the simple principle of passing the eleotoral body through such a refining process as would leave us only its best and worthiest element. Sometimes, as in Franx, nnder the Restoration, or in the American Senate, this prooess takes plado by two distinct eleotions. Here the election wonll bo made by the parties themselves, and the standard of each man's education or econ >my would 4n Is bow far he was fit for the responsibility of a share in directly nominating a member of Parliament. Any such scheme would give us precisely what we watt, and save us from precisely what wo draai. It wc uU give us the good will au 1 the assistance of the working class, while it would froe uj from any necessity of simultaneously admitting the nuisance of their ignorance, numerical prepondcr ince, and liability to sudden p'siion nnder tho pressure of o?casi?nal distress. No man would have it in his power to tell the operatives thatoapltal was making | laws sgainit labor, for to participate in muting laws would obly need the exercise of self-deniai and eflbr.s at self-improvement. Such a process would thoroughly ingraft tho working class into our focisl system. Wt should immensely profit by their co operation and their oontentmeat, while the ordinary infirmities of human nature would, we fear, be only too certain a guarantee that the registration list would never be inconveniently overcrowded. P. ii unnecessary to anecify the obvious provision! it any such schemes for readjusting the limit* of boroughs and preventing the manufacture of ahem votea. It is enough that we have ikclehed an outline, which, in our opinion at leaat, ii far more liberal, aa well aa far more comprtheaairo, than anv which we hare yet heard promulgated from Mancheater. And it may guide the people to the leader* moat worthy of their confidence and attachment, when we remind tham that the first seat tiealschemo for giving any direot legiilative influence to tho purely working claaa proceeded, not from any loud-spoken demigegue, but ftom the whig l'rime Minister of England.

He was b waited on by the Governor himself, who aooompanied him when, In 165)6, be was removed to the Bat- s? tille. His department and habits bespoke a person 01 of superior education, aud he was always treated J? with defetence.
