LONDON, September 17.—The .Tele

between Spain and the United States
wherein it says: The th e

'on the broad ground of common interests.
War between Spain and America would
• be a material injury that would be
equally apportioned. The shipping of
the latter would be a prey to privateers
and her commerce, with the profits,
would pass to neutrals. The reduction
of.i . the national debt would be
arrested, internal organization checked,
.and public discontent would .revive.
With the growing burdens, Spain would

America would gain at a heavy
cost what might for years be more
.a loss than a gain; would be entangled
in a war combining a maximum cost and
• minimum glory. Such considerations
• cannot pass unregarded at Washington,
since there is still ground for the hope
that peace may be . preserved.
The Ezaminer, on the subject of Spain
and Cuba, has the following: "By the

physical impediment to the representa

treatment. No person except Mooney
himself`has yet testified positively that
Mooney was shot in the mouth
at the time of the fracas, though
some . saw him bleeding at the
month. The theory of the defense,
although no depositions in their behalf
have been buten as yet, is evidently
that Mooney, when ordered to perform
some duty on the boat, was stubborn and
refractory; that the mate punished him
to compel obedience; that a pistol was
uesd with which he was beaten on the
head, and during the castigation it went
off but shot nobody; that Mooney was
ordered off the boat to the Island to
carry on wood and refused to do so,
seating himself upon a loiCand obstinate
ly refusing to return to the beat; that the
boat was detained some time through his
refusal to go aboard,, and tinnily was
compelled to shove off without him.

TOLEDO, Sept. 17.—The Ohio State Fair
closed today. It can be safely stated to
be the most successful in all respects of
any yet held. The number of admission
tickets sold was 70,000 against 76,000 at
Dayton, 1867, the highest of any pre
ceedlng year. The aggregate of receipts
were from $28,000 to $30,000. The num
ber of entries, 9,300, biting about 1,000
mor than in any former year. The most
gratifying degree of order, sobriety
anclgOod feeling distinguished the whole
affair, and everybody. officer/4pr the'
board, exhibitors, visitors and clinging,
are delighted. As evldenceof the natural
resources, developments - and advance

to Toledo, it was an occasion in which
the people' of this city may well take
pride, and which will do much towards
attracting in this direction the industry,
skill and capital of the country.
