Secretary Flih laid hit latett Information
from Spain it that affair are in a very
critical condition, and the republic Ii lia
ble to be iwopt away at any moment.
Tho men who aro at tho brad of the gov

Spain o far ai having a republican gov

approaching, and if the minlrtry can le
cure a majority of rnemberi, their present
form of government will be permanent.
Rut if the electloni go agalnit them, the
republic' day are numbered. Pending

Mr. Fiib further laid there wai no
truth in tba report that Minister Lowe,
at China, and DeLong at Japan, had tent
in their resignations, or that tho president
had decided to appoint ei-Scnalor Nye In
place of Lowe.
Information ha been rectlred at the

when the reader will remember tnal, upon
that vary date, the 1 1th of March,
Queen Anno went to the home of prert
and dolivered ber tint speech from tho
throne, King William III. having did
upon the 8tb, three dayt before. Wa
have laid there wai no home nows In tie
first Issue of tho Courant. Thn assertion
Is too sweeping. In one corner I litre
are seven Junes, four of which relate to
the death of the deceased kirn;,
and three are devoted to the condition of
the enyliih army in Flanders; for war rit
that time was raging between England
and Fran re. The remainder of the con
tent consisted entirely of auotations
from foreign paper, with tbn exception of I
half a column in reference to it fjturx '
prospects and plan. "Thi Courant, '
ayi the publisher, "a the Title show, I
will be published dallv, being OeiiuneJ to

The appearance of ovor a column of ad
vertisement in tbe ame number it lum
clenl Indorsement of the ttatement, and
Irom that time tbe Courant Increased In
prosperity. Every newipaper bad its
leading feature, and that claimed by tbe
Courant wa foreign Intelligence. Three
month after its first appearance tho fol
lowing notlco found a conspicuous place
in it column, which lead lo the belief
that newspaper publisher were much tho
ame In tboto day a now a regard tbe
diihing-up of newt from abroad: "It will

come from abroad in any language. And
for an aituraiice that ho will not, under
pretence of having private intelligence,
impose any addition of lelgced circum
stance to an action, but glvo hi extract
fairly and impartially, at the beginning
of each article, he will quote the firilun
paper from whence it is taken, that the
public, seeing from what country a pleco
of news comet, with tho allowance of that
government, may bo better able to Judge
of tbe credibility and fairness of the rela
tion. Nor wlU'be take upon bitn to give
any comments or conjecture ot his own,
but will relate only mutter of fact, suppos
ing other people to have sense enough to
inaKe reuecuori lur uietnieivea.
Ilad we any intention of glorifying tbe
modorn daily newipapor at tbe expense of
the Courant, we might ttop'hore to draw
a very striking comparison botweon the
merits of tho two. Hut that was no part
of our original plan, and we leave it fur I
those who have notbing else to do. As v e
have mid, and ai it daisied in tbu abovit
quotations, the strong point ot tbe Cou
rant was lit foreign intelligence. Clip-per-ihips,
ocean Htnincri and lubmarino
cable were aliko unknown in thoie day,
and the jubliher wai obliged to depend
upon tbe uncertain movement of transat
lantic shipping, to thut tho nows from
America wa sometimes, two, three, and
occasionally four months, old. Evan the
newt from across the channel wa often
two and three week old. But then this
intelligence, stale as it wis, wai undoubt- J
edlv read with ai keen an annetitn unit '
dlicussed with ai much rarneilnos?, ai if j
it baa come not irnm the wires an hour
before. A tiro micht occur in New York,
and the destroyed buildings be replaced,
by tbo time tho Intelligence would rcr.cli
London; or a colonial otliclnl in
Boiton might die, and hit widow be
fpending ber honeymoon with her econd,
before Uik newt of thu flrt event would
be published in tbn column of the Cour
ant. But tbe preservative power of timo
did not allow anything in the new line to
lcie iti savor, and tbeo mouldy scraps,
with others gathered from various parts
of the world, were terved up, day 'after
day, to tho public, with groat soem!nt
acceptance. Every afternoon tbe same
stream of purchaser flowed into tbe nar
row, dingy itroct of publication left
It innumerable ponnloi and bore away Iti
Innumerable copies through tho fog and
moke of London. At last there came a
day, at there comes a day to ut all, when
the founder and publisher of the first dally
papar in the English tongue, having
achlevod hit work, thut hi eye upon the
world, and went out ot it. That work,
looked at acroii tbe hundrod and teventy
years that have elapsed since Its accom
plishment, seems poor enouch but, poor

wai, it wai the Bret placing of tbe lever
