Tub recent Intelligence from Spain as to the reoall of Espartero has revived eome Interest in Spanish hlatorj. It waa only reoently that we remarked how much more interesting his tory was than fiction, and could history be al ways written in the interesting and picturesque style of Mkhelet, Macaalay, Fronde, Uallam, and dome others of the modern school, it ought to occasion as great a ran at the various libra ries as is continually being done for trashy novels. The history of nearly all countries would furnish tints for good historical painters. Spanish history has been particularly seized on by various writers of the Buhool we have referred to. With Americans it seems to have been considerable of a favorite. Washington living, Mr. I'rt'Soott, aud Mr. Tiuknor have done much in the way of elucidating SpauUh history. Such writers are too well known to be particularly referred to here. A considerable discussion was raised at the hypothesis, put forth by the late Mr. Bi-kle, in his history of Civilization in England, that much of the superstitious element inherent iu the Spanish character was owing to the fre quency of earthquakes and volcanio eruption in that country. 15s that as it miy, that such was the chief characteristic of the Spaniard, is notorious, and yet what a territory did the then monarchs rule over I Take the reign of Philip the Second. Iu Europe Philip ruled Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands on bath sides of the Rhine, Frauohe Coinp u, Roussillon, the Milanese, and the two Sicilies. Ia Asia he possessed the Phillipines, and all the con quests which the Portuguese had made previously. In Aineiica his dominions ex tended on each side of the equator into the temperate zone. His power over Europe wai greater than Napoleon's sabsequ-ntly became. Bat at the end of another century this great ness was gone. Spain had lost Holland, Portu gal, Artois, Roussillon, and Tranche Couip'6, But worse than the loss of territory, she had losther commerce, from that miserable misman agement which has continued almost ever Since. So complete a picture is that period of what, as we have just remarked, has siuoe been the condition of that unhappy country, that we cannot refrain from transcribing a most eloquent historian's account: "Murders Were committed in the face of day with perfect jmpunity. Bravoes and discarded serving-men with swords at their sides, swaggered every day through the most public streets and Squares of the capital, disturbing the public peace and setting at defiance the miuistera o( Justice." The finances were in frightful dis order. Our readers will doubtless remember that only very recently a London banking firm advanced a quarter of a million pounds sterling on account of a new loan offered in the London market, and it failed to be taken, the Spanish Qovernment boldly pocketed this sum and gave the owners no redress. Spanish history since that time is a con tinual record of weakness and bad government Napoleon attempted to destroy the old Bjur bou Government, and when the French branch of that family were reinstated, France then sent a French army, under the Puke D'An. gouleme, to restore despotism and the Inqui sition, whioh had temporarily been abrogated. What will be the future of that couutry ? Will not the light of civilization be reilected iota that benighted region f Mr. Buokle took a most desponding view. lie says that, while even barbarous countries are improving, Spaia Bleeps on untroubled, unheeding, impassive, receiving no impressions from the rest of the world, and making no impressions upon it. She is proud in continuing everything of Whioh she should be ashamed. Sheisproul of the antiquity of her opinions, proud of her orthodoxy, proud of the strength of her faith, proud of her immeasurable and childish credulity, proud of her unwillingness to amend either her creed or her custom, proud of her hatred of heretics, and proud of the un dying vigilance with whioh she has baffled their efforts to obtain a full and legal esta blishment on her soil. This is, indeed, gloomy enough; bat although education, among other things, hai been backward enough in Spain, we oan scarcely bring ourselves to believe that she is destined ever to remain ia her present torpor. It seems scarcely possible that while progress is exeroising suoh sway among, we may say, nearly all the nations of the earth, Spain should remain entirely isolate! from its infiuenoe. Let us at least hops that the spirit of the age will make itself felt ia that land so favored by nature, and bo cor rupted by man. With all due deference to the late Mr. Buckle's opinion on this point, we must be permitted to hope that he took too gloomy a view of some matters, and await yet the intelligence not buoyed too muoh with hope, of the introduction of free measures; even a free Constitution, whioh, of course, must be followed by one of the most powerful adjuncts of a free Constitution a free press. The Turf. Tub racing season is over in England and New Yoik, under the distinguished patronage of the blackleg Marquis of Hastings on the one Land, and the no less brilliant auspices of Mr. August Belmont on the other. And we must confess that if no means can be found for im proving the morality of the turf in both coun tries, as well as restoring racing to Us legiti mate object, the improvement of the breed of horses, It would be no loss to sooiety were the system to terminate with the season. It now, Indeed, approximates that of the ring, and th conduct of the members of the noted British Boxers' Beneficent Association Is quite as re spectable as that of most of the patrons of the modern turf. The very pretext about tbe breed of horses is now soouted as a delusion, and the whole system has become one of swind ling, cheating, fraud, and chicanery. It is Impossible to exaggerate the evil effects which English horse-racing now has upon the community. For weeks before a great race, such as that of the Derby or St. Leger, comes off, sweeps or pools are esta blished at every tavern and pot-house in Lon. don, varying in amount from 1 to 1000. Servant1) are thus enoouraged to plunder their masters, and apprentices to rob their em ployers' tills. Even the most degraded mem bers of the community, including both sexes, contribute on these occasions; and the whole either goes into the pocket of the publioau or his friends, into whose hands it is so arranged that tbe prizes shall fall, or that worthy refuses to pay on the ground that he cannot bs forced by law, or finally as happened in a noted case that it is illegal, aud his con science will not permit him to part with the money. But even if all goes well, and the bast horse is brought to the post, it is almost tho reverse of certain that he will win. Tips" nny be paid to any amount for previous lafofaUioo; but the owner may change the whole aspect of affairs in a moment, either by "scratching" his horse, or privately instructing his jojksy to lose. The Marquis of Hastings openly did the former of these aots with one of his horses on the recent Derby, and he is strougly sus pected of having been guilty of the other; though he himself accounts for the failure of 'Lady Elizabeth," the first favorite, by alleg ing that she was dragged through the agency of one Chaplin, the son of a wealthy railway carrier, whom he had jilted of a wife. This may have been true, but it only shows what sort of gentry these men are, and what crimes, in pursuit of their object, they will not hesi tate to commit. Again, if they lose, there is no certainty that their bets will be paid. The days when a man deliberately blew out his brains when he could not meet his engagements on the turf are now gone, and little discredit seems to attach to the name of ''Levanter." For merly this was an epithet which was con sidered to convey every epeoies of opprobrium. But all this sensitiveness has now disappeared, especially from the upper raaks, and the Marquis of Hastings lately made his appearance upon the turf though he has notoriously for two years been insolvent or paid up only ten per cent, of his reoent losses, while a '"Weesher," or Greek in hum bler life, received a proper beating or 'bon nettiug," in tbe shape of being dreadfully mauled and having the clothes torn from his person, with the view of proving that, if honor bad forsaken the breasts of the higher circles, it still found shelter in the inferior ranks of men. The Duke of Hamilton and the Earl of Jersey have been equally ruined by horse-racing, though they have discharged their debts more honorably than the Marquis of Bastings. The former, a young man, lately came into possession of a fortune of 200,000 a year, and he signalized his ac cession by immediately offering the odds of 180,000 to 6000 aghinst some particular horse. The liabilities of the latter are un known, as he lost all the accumulated posses sions of his ancestors in an hour, and both of them now find themselves paupers for life when they have little more than attained adolescence. It is against the introduction of such a system here, under the august auf pices of Mr. Belmont, that we desire to protest. American racing was all very well when it was confined chieily to trotting, as it thus raised a useful breed of animals. 'THE WHITE FAWN." It First Ksprsststtatloa 1 this City. Tbe White fawn, whlou was produced at the Cbesnut Street Theatre last evening, for the flrst lime, 1b an anomaly. If there were not to muob of theepectacular.it might be classed aa au opera bouffe, and If both song and spectacle were eliminated, it would pas"1 very well for a broad faroe. As it is clarification ia impjsalble; aud we are foroed to unite with the management in styling it a grand spectacular and operatio extravagaaza. It has a plot which, we are told, is borrowed from a famous French model known as La BlcheauJlois. Th la plot is of the amphibious order, and partakes in its most essential fea. lures of the characteristics of the Naiad Queen and Cinderella, ou which have beeu rung suc cessively the changes of 2Vie Black Crook and CcndrUUm. Ridiculous old mortals like "King Ding-dong," and sentimental young mortals like "The Prince Leander," have been rendered familiar to the public in varying phases of their fortunes; while there is nothing of novelty in fairy queens whose realms are located in out-of-the-way places beneath the surface of the earth and water. Yet the plot has many novel leatures, and as it la very perplexing to the beholder, whose fancy is somewhat upset by the gorgeousness of speclaole and ballet, we give its outllno for the benefit of those who puzzled their bewildered brains iu vain last night, or may be disposed to do so in the tulure, To begin, then, there Is a prologue, in which is first presented the exterior of old "Ding, (long V palace. Tho name of this majestic per nonage is fully expressive of his character and functions. Prom every point of his variegated robe Is suspended a tinkling bell, and when he straightens his well-rounded form and throws bis scarlet mantle about bis shoulders in mock berolo style, the ear is saluted with a rush of tinkling music. Like kings of fact and fancy be. fore Ihlm, old "Dlngdong" baa a daughter born unto him, and wishing to Intuse ber H e with a savor of romance, be invites the fairies round about to tbe baptismal rites, "Aqulllna," the watery sovereign of an enohanted lake, Is overlooked, and being of an exacting turn of mind, she suddenly starts up and creates no little consternation by assort ing that, if tbe new-born princess Is sull'jreii to gaze upon the light of day before her sixteenth year In completed, snmrJlndliister will befall her. "Dlrgdong" sets bis wile to work.andalle l ny fairy hands a tower from which the sunshine is excluded rises, as if by mnglo, and in this ti i rlnress Is immnred. Divers little sprites and gnomes, wltn diminutive bods and plok and aw", assist in Its construction, the slige effeot being very pleasing in short, one of the most attractive tbat we have ever seen la this country. As the gorgeous handiwork of the fairies Is revealed by the Ultrolvlng of the mists, tbe curtain falls and tbe prologue endt.. The st oond act Is of h saiiron hue. The yellow kingdom, to which it introduces os, Is preside 1 over by 'Queen S.irionilla," a crotchety oil lady, whose son and heir, the "Prince Leander,'' Is as Blight and as aeutlmentat as need ba. 'Trlnce Leander" has Irng bctn of a melanj'ioly turn ofmlud, from gazing on the portrait ol the "Princess! Oraoefui," old "Dlnjdong's" hopelu1 heiress, who is still immured in tbe dark tower. Her saffron rn ijety gives her consent to his wooing, which necessitates a rupture with the "rrlnctss Alka," Queen of the Eoony Island, to whom be has btt-n affianced in early youth. Thereupon "Lord Twaddledum," a model diplomat of the saffron order, H de. t.uted as envoy to old "Dlngdong's" Court, Thither be roj airs, gilns the consent of the tinkling king, und starts f jr the Saffron realm with the ' rrlncess Graceful," closely Immure 1 in a darkened palanquin. Tho "Princess Aik V has sworn revenge, and f'llo-vsup ttie esort; tbe palanquin Is broken open by ' Abdalla," h r cr.ppercolored enobanter; and, to "l'rloce Lcander's" great Brief, li Is nllUuo'l brlJa Is transformed into a White Fawn by the flr.-t ray of sunshine which has smlltou her dollcue form. Tils melanch"ly aft'ilr happen Jun as the Prince, impatient to meet aud givet hH bride, encounters ber escort; but before he on lose muoh flesh In vain regrets, the fairy "Ruby" comes gallantly to his rescue, anl be stows upon him a tallra inlo rlu r, by which he Is enabled to recall the fawn to her human f rin during the watches of the night. A fawn by day and a languishing damsol by night not an inexhaustible fountain of Jiy, certainly, but quite enough to keep a seu'l mental prince from utter despair. The still unappeased fairy of the lake, however, Is not thus to be balked In her purpose. Disguised as a prince of some sort, though evidently no' aDJ Hated with the saffron dynasty, for sue ap. pears in brown leggings and blue tunlo, while all the fashions of the lealm tend toyellow.ahe turns up in the s ffron kingdom and there en tlces "Flnetta," walling woman to the "PrlncoSj Graceful," to do a deed which none but a love elok waiting-woman would be guilty of. "Lord Twaddledum" has been made custodian of tbe tallemanlc ring. Towards htm "Flnetta" has a yearning, and the wily "Aquallna" promises her success in her wooing If she will but wheeile him outol the rlug. Flnetta," like her bet ters, is in a bad wty, and en'.ers Into the plot. By sundry smirks and much cajolery, she eels a chance at "Twaddleduru'a" little fat band, withdraws the ling, aud In a sudden fit, after giving her lover a ducking In an impromptu bath-tub, casts the talisman into the lake. The second act presents, In the graphlo words Of "Loid TwaddUdum," a "pretty ketile of fish." The "Prince L'aud r" and his not over trusty esquire have plunged bodily into the lake in search of the talisman, and when they gain the bottom tbey find themselves in the midst of dolphins, crabs, and lobsters, and divers other monsters of a "scaly" cast of countenance. They create a good impression on these fishy creatures, and succeed in regain, lng their sought treasure. The third act represents the kingdom of "Aika," the ebony queen, and Innumerable trlbuiatioLs wbloh need not be particularized are undergone therein by "Prince Leander" and his companion. Armed with the fairy talisman, all obstacles are eventually overcome. "Aqualina" and "Alka" are outwitted, little by little; the two fairies are brought to au under standing and co operate with each otber.when U is found by "Aqualina" that her protfge "Alka" Is of a bloodthirsty and murderous turn of mind; finally tbe spell which dooms the "Princess Graceful" to the guise of a fawn by day is broken; and all goes merry as a marriage-bell in the realms of old "Dlngdong' and "Baffronilla." Fairy Justice having been thus tempered with fairy mercy, and human hearts made glad thereby, tbe closing scene is revealed in the fonrth act a scene of dazzling gorgeousness, styled tbe "Realms of tbe Dragon-Fly." This scene is tbe grand culmination of thespeota" cular art, and certainly surpasses anything heretofore witnessed on tbe American stage A description is Impossible to be appreciated It must be seen. Interspersed throughout the different acts is the ballet, under the leadership of Bonfautl, Boh Ike, and La Petite Schlager, the two first named being strangers to the Philadelphia public. It Is unnecessary to particularize the schools of art to which tbey severally belong. Whatever of poetry there is tn motion has been carefully studied and is faithfully deploted by them, and to those who admire the muscularity of art they can not but prove an irresistible attraction. To the ballet.lbere could be, of oourse, but few impediments on a first night. But the spectacular and mechanical effects were not so exempt, and the clock marked five minutes past 12 when tbe curtain fell on the realms of the Dragon KJy. When we remember that tbe first representa tion of tbe piece at Niblo's Garden, New York, occupied tbe greater portion ol the nlnht, the facility and rapidity with wblch the machinery was manipulated last evening is deserving of commendation. In two or ihree evenings at the most, all hindrances will doubtless be over come, and tbe performance be closed at a sea sonable and reasonable hour. The dramatic cast, wblch alone remains to be noticed, was unusualty good. Miss Faunie Stockton, who has enjoyed an excellent repu tation as a vocalist, appeared as "AquallnO executing several alts very acceptably. Miss Llllle Eldrldgo, who Assumed the obaraoter of "Prince Leander," did creditably well, but her voice is rather tame, and did not contrast well with Miss Stockton's Miss Josle Orton, who was uproariously greeted on ber reappearance, enaoled the part of "Flnetta" in a style which has of late beoome chronic with her. She Is altogether too gush ing. She understands ber art thoroughly, but would profit much by being a little more sub tlutd In both voice and manner. "Dolly" Davenport appeared as "Lord Twaddledum, Esq.," and waa entirely unobjectionable, as w J likewise Mr. J. W. Jennings as "King Ding dong." Mrs. George Bonifaoeas the 'Princess Alka," and Miss Budlow as the "Prlnoesi Graceful," were both careful, tbe one being a little too languishing and tbe other a little too robust. Buch is tbe While Pawn, and it is a suoorss from tbe first in this city. Tbe management supported by the prolific praise of tbe New York Journals, have been extremely profuse la their promises, and the manner in whioh they have placed the While Faun on tbe stage, is almost, If not quite a Justification. The bouse was crowded lust evening, an 1 such will ba tha cate until tbe pleco is withdrawn. MaoAzixks. "Ltpplnoott'e," for September, 1 tbe best of several numbers.
