LONDON, September 18.—The Daily
News Bays: The question as to an im
proved understanding between Spain
and the 'United States remains unsolved.
While the latter is impatient of delay,
the former is sending armaments that
may precipitate a confifct. The Spanish
exchequer is virtually empty, and tem
porary loans are resorted to at increas
ingly_ onerous terms. This fact must be
considered in estimating the possibility
of the pending crisis.
The proposition to call Prince Thomas,
the young Duke of Genoa, and nephew
of King Victor Emanuel, to the throne
of Spain under I the joint regency of
-Montpensier, Serino and River°, is gain
The Spanish frigate Anaemia is under
orders for Cuba.
LONDON, September 18.—The Spectator
says: War between Spain and the Unt
ied States, on account of Cuba, appears
like a moral impossibility, but is uni
versally believed in just now in Spain.
The war enthusiasm there is gathering
fast. Minister Sickles' proposition is in
consistent with the precedent furnished
by the conduct of the United States in
1861. What with Spanish pride and
American sympathies, the situation is
very critical. It is difficult to believe
Spain—with a divided people a bank
' rupt treasury, one colony . in • revolt.
others to lose, nothing to.wm—can seri
ously contemplate war with one of the
greatest powers on earth.
The Saturday Review holds that if thti
proposal of General Sickles is accurately
reported there is no ground for com
plaint against America for making an
offer to Spain in the character of a disin
terested mediator. It is possible that
some of these people is Spain who urge
--the sending of reinforcements to Cuba,
desire theabsenceof the army. Without
8 military force, can the Regent retain the
power of the Cortez against the Republi
cans and Carlists. The friends of Isa
• belle might be formidable in the absence
of the army. The Government must see
that to•sacrifice the army will not save
Alluding to the desire of the Amer
icans to possess Cuba, the writer tninks
the arguments of Mr. Buchanan hi favor
of annexation must be mpre agreeable
to their ears now that slavbry has been
suppressed. But whether iris their true
interest to include an alien and uncon
congenial population in the Union is a
question for future history.
MADRlD,September 19.—The Spanish
press pas been in a complete ferment of
excitement and indignation, since the

cause he was known to bs a strong par
tisan of Cuban annexation. Gen. Sickles

his mission refers only to Cuba. He in.
sista that he never broached the ques.
lion of the cession of the island to the
United States, but hag merely hinted
that the American Government is willing
to interpose its friendly offices for the
settlement of the Spanish difficulties
The Times calls to mind that the first
anniversary of the revolution in Spain
has passed and none of the evils, laid to
the charge of the Bourbons have dimin
ished, but rather increased. There is
greater distress and confusion and less
concord, efficiency and public security.
The policy of the government in the prov
inces is revieWed and its action there
contrasted with its action in. Madrid.
The Times acknowledges that all is done
for the best, but the conflicting views
- and diverging] tendencies of some mem
bers of the Government, produce help
lessness and improvidence among them.
There is hardly a ruling man in the
