The cruel massacre ol General Ryan and
tesr Cuban patriots captured on board the
Vfrgfnns, has aroused the people ef this
country lo a high pitch of eothusiaim In fa
vor or tb cause of the patriots In Cuba. A
wildly enthusiast io miss meeting of Cuban
sympathizers wss bald In Pbilsdelpbla on
Thursday night, wbeo means wore subscrib
ed and volunteers proffered to aid the
patriots. II the government would just
keep Its hands off, but a abort time would
lapse before there would be an army of
100,000 volunteer! from tba United States
on the soil of Cuba. Meetings have already
boon held lo other large cities besides
Philadelphia, and other meetings are called
There baa been no such war excitement in
tbls country since that morning in Aprili
1861, wbsn the news was Bashed over the
country that the rebels bad opened fire on
FurtSumpter. Yesterday's dispatches an
nenneed that lbs authorities ol the United
Stales were determined to proceed to the
prescribed eoostitu tlonal limit in the man
ler. This probably mesne that a little stir
will be made about Ike affair, some show
of resentment, and tbea the whole thing
will be allowed le drop. One tbiog .we
may rest assured of, there will be no war
between tbls country and Spain. A Urge
mejoilty of (our people no doubt deeply
sympathize with Cuba io ber struggle for
Independence, and this fresh outrage com.
mltted by the Spanish authorities will lead
to practical expressions of that sympathy io
Mm shape of means to cany on the struggle
against Spain. The title which years ago
was conferred upon Cuba by the Spanish
government of "the Ever Faithful Isle," has
now aboat as muchs IgniQcauce as the title
of "Defender ( the Fall b," conferred upon
Hhnry VIII., of England by one of the
Popes, when that monarob wrote a book
gainst Luther's dooirines bad alter tin
posiacy of that monarch. Cuba is no long
er failblul lo Spain, Sbe-aspirea to be free
and independent amoug tba nations of the
earth. The insurgents bava held out
against tba power of the borne government
'or a period of more (ban six years, nearly
as long as our lathers were engaged in the
war lor Independence. Our government
ought long age to have recognized the Cu
bans as beligereots, and to hare accorded
the rights belonging to tbem.

A curious circumstance .la msnttoaed In
Canadian paper of boy named Klcgs
too, who recently lost bis arm by tkresb
log machine at Adelaide. After the limb
had been amputated and buried the boy
complained that the band was cramped,
oausiag bim extreme pain, nnd that it it
waa not disinterred be could net recover.
The limb was accordingly disinterred, and
the band louod ty be Ormily shut together
During the operation of openiog the band
tbe patient evinced great agony, and after
wards declared that he (ell relieved from
the sensation of cramp. The case Is a
strange one, but we believe It is not with
out preceded in medical annals.

The goverument should vindicate tbe insult
to our flag at once by declaring war against
Spain. Tbe governmeut of Spain, as every

For the past fifty years American citizens
