In the fint dayi ol April, 187-1, tho gal
lant admiral recolred a dlipatch from
iladrld, a inlnlitorof etato rt followi:
At the governmont locognizii tbo lm

out foreign help, and at tho goTornrcont
of bit majesty, tho emperor of Unrmany

hould know what position the American
government would take In the svont of a
evasion of our iilo of I'orto Uico, tempor
urily or dcHnilely, to tho govornment of
bis majesty tbo ornperor. Tbo samu
courier brought tho admiral & noto ox
plaining that tbo Gorman government
would stc to it, that a proposed loan to tho
Serrano government, offered in London,
should bo a success, and would itsoU fur
nish tbo necessary funds, tho total amount
having been agreed on. Alto tho Gormen
government would eitablkh & Hot', of

tho German ompirn by a provision title,
but ono tbat may bocoine porpottul, tho

Admiral l'olo lost no timo in risponding
that tbo communication of tbu minister of

that ho oll'ored hit reelgnatlon as Spaniih
