In tliui establishing diplomatic relations with the Government over which your Excellency presides, I retail with plea so the fact tbat the United states and Spain bave never had any cUT-renc-a which diplomacy bas not been able to reconcile. I hardly need add that In the present circumstances no effort ot mine will be pared fir strengthening and rendering more cordial Ibe sentiments of sincere friendship and go ud-will now so bapphy subsisting between the two nations. REPLY OF THE DUKE DE LA TORRK. To this his kxcelleucy the Duke de la Torre, Preiidenl of tbe Couuci), replied as follows: Mr. Minister: Nothing Ij so grateful to my heart s to receive la this solemn act, in tbe name ot tbe Bpanlsu, people, tbe felicitations that your Kxcel leucy has directed to me for tue use tbat bas been guide of the prerogative eaianallug from lis sov ereignty.

The Interview was extremely cordial, and the Span eh Ministers expressed their gratification at the stand taien by the United States. They felt that it would have a beuettcial effect on 1heir relations with the great powers of tiurope. Certainly the IntluencJ of the people, as far as can be observed at lhs time, has been excellent. It encourages them to go on with tho good 'work that enjoys tbe sympathies of so powerful & nation as the United Mates. Mr. Hale re called tbe fact tbat Spain was the tirat to recog nize tbe United Slates, and it was no more thsu a sense of justice and gratitude wjuM dictate to reciprocate. It Is supposed that the repre sentatives of other nations will luxe no time in following tbe example set by the United State. 14o one doubts tbat this Ministry represents the people of Spain, Prliii'M Latest.

The fnllowintr letter ha.i been addressed to John C. Uamilton oi New York: Washington, Oct. 24. My Dear Sir: I have. since you have specially called ruy attention to it, looked over that purl of Mr. bey moor's spe cious spech wherein he finds fault Willi tne unequal distribution of the National liank cur rency. HJs flgurta are substantially true, but lie purposely so states tnem as to convey iruse impressions of facta to the mlnd-i of unin formed and unthlDkiDg men; and It la to suoh that he mainly addresses them. ilia very statements are absurd. What would he and bis "friends" bave? That the West, In whose bebalf he speaks, and thai he says waa "not then in a condition to secureb te currency, for tbe very reason that they most needed ft," should establish banks without capital? True, under btate laws, and under "Conservative" Demoeratie rule, banks used to be so created. But, thanks to better financial counsels and wiser political action, that time has passed. Then bank charters wIlu exclusive banking privileges were freely granted to favorite insolvent politicians, for po litical services rendered and to be rendered. No real money was then required or needed to be f ald in, or even secured to be paid in. These nstltutions were gotten up, so that the lew favored stockholders might borrow the ficti tious credit, In the shape of bank bills, of these bogus and utterly rotten institutions. For a time evetylblng was lovely. Tne bills were ex changed by these swindling baukers for tbe pro duels of the farmer and for the services of the mecbanlo and tbe laboring mm But then, when tbey came back for redemption, "the bank" closed its doors; and the bonest holders of these bills lost their face value, tbey never bad any other, and the luxurious idle swindlers rocketed, without cost to themselves, what had been so bardly earned by the honest, In dustrious, laboring poor. Does Mr. Seymour for himself, or on bebalf of bis "friends," desire (he return of this state of things? The whole West, and ecpeclally Illinois, that be now con trasts with Eastern Stales, has had lu surfeit of tbls kind ot banking and currency; aud if put to a vote, would no doubt decide against all banks and all kinds of paper currency, rather than have such banks and such a currency forced upon its peop e. But then, would the West have auy more currency if it had used its scanty means to buy Government stooks, in order toprocute it from its own people and banks, rather than from those of other Btates that bad it iu abundance? Can the West, or any other people, borrow money where it Is not ? Does not Mr. Seymour know that needed money, like everything else that is de sirable, must bo sought where it is, and not where it is not? How, let me ask blm, can the West borrow money of itself, if, as be alleges, it has none ? But by what authority does Mr. Seymour thus speak lorllllnols? Tuat noble Slate, that did so muoh to crush Babels, and lhstbolds in tbe bosom or its soli the ashes ol a Douglas and tbe martyred Lincoln, does not need nor ask his interference In its behalf. It can lake care of Itself, and of blm too. lllirjols makes no complaint, and her citizens will, in a few days, admonish htm tnat bla meddling in her affairs Is gratuitous aud uncalled for. All Illlnolsans know that the door lor them to come la and to organize Na tional Banks, and thus to secure their Bhare of national currency, was left wide open totbetn for years. Tbey know tbat the Government In Its time of Imminent danger and great pecu niary need sent its ageuts not only to them, but to ail other loyal sectionsaud communities, imploring all to buy its stocks and establish these Lanka How were these applications of a sorely pressed Government of the people met by the then Governor Sevmour an J bis "friends?" Yonr bankers in New York.under the invitation of the people's Congress, were anxious to aid the Government in lis distress. They petit ioned your Legislature to enact a law to authorize them to surrender tbelr State char ters, and to convert themselves into national institutions. A loyal Legislature patrlotloally granted tbelr and the natlou'a prayer, aud passed a law permitting the conversion ot tne Slate banks Into National banks. Governor Seymour, foreseeing that this would In effect be a lean of the who'e banking capluiof the State to the General Government., and thus enabling it to prosecute the war against the Rebels, who were seeking the nation's lite, and thus prompted by bis Copperhead in stincts to embarrass tne Government and to aid the Rebellion, vetoed the bill. Massachu setts. Rhode Island, and other loyal Stales that Mr. Seymour names disparagingly, having doyal Legislatures, and loyal Governors withal, came nobly to the nation's resoue. They took the risks risks they then were, for bad tbe Government failed In Its efforts to sustain the life of the nation, these banks, who had staked their all on the issue, wonld have, with our re publican iorm 01 government, gone unuer to gether. Can tbls be doubted, when it Is known tbat these National Banks had collectively loaned to the Government, in order tbat the suppression of the Rebellion might be more vigorously proseouiea, more tuan me entire aggregated their capitals? And to-day these banks hold more than one-fourth of the entire funded debt 0! the United States. Tneytook the risks, although told by those who now, like Mr. Seymour, boast that they never took or bought a dollar of Government stocks, that they wonld lose their whole Investment. This course of Mr. Seymour aud his "friends" admits of but two explanations. They are welcome to either horn. They refused to take these stoeks, or to aid in the creation, of na tional bunks, because they believed it would bring aid to the Government, and injure their Rebel allies; or I hey had then already made up their minds to repudiate the sacred obllgaMous of the Government, wheuever tbe people should so far forget themselves as to trust them, and to restore them to political power. That banking capital and bank-note circulation should be distributed by "wise statesmanship" and an act of Congress per capita, and not according to the commercial wanu of business communities, is an invention of Mr. Seymour's, for whloh he la entitled to a patent. His luveutlous will pro bably die with blm, without loss to tbe rest of mankind. In January, 18(il, when there was no United Slates law governing the subject of banking whe a banks lluuriHhed or decayed under tue laws of trade, aud of supply and demand, the Stales Ibat Mr. Keytuour loves to contrast stood, capi tal compared with circulation, as follows: In New York, the capital of the banks was about thtee times the amount of the clroulailon; lu Massachusetts about four times, and in Ruode Islund six times; In Illinois, on the ooutrary, the circuit! tlon approached nearly to double tne capital. Tne last named Hiate had, at the be ginning of 1801, capital $U.7oO,743, and circula tion SU 010,837. The national banks bad last October capital (11,(120,000, aud circulation 19,511.710. Which of these conditions does Mr, Seymour prefei? Certainly not the one that the sound business men of Illinois, and the country over, would approve. Now that tlie country Is saved, in part by the action of these banks, and the scheme that then looked so ominous to Iheni, and dark even to loyal people, these then prophets of evil turn round and ask that there shall be a new deal. They want a "new shake of the hat," and tbey want to do the shaking themselves. Tney lutend It shall be a game of "heads I win, tails you lose." "That's what's ibe matter." These fellows oare nothing about Illinois or any other State having cur rency. What tbey want, Is to get bank stock, as of old, without paying for It, on wuioh they could Issue an Irredeemable and unsecured cur rency themselves and for themselves, bat to the detriment of all honest people. This branch of Copperhead Impudenoe is ouly surpassed by that of now asking to govern tbe country that for years tbey labored so bard to destroy. Ail the questions about equalising the amount of bank circulation will easily b9 sett ed so soon as sneole payments shall be re sumed. Congress will then, no doubt, remove tbe restriction tbat It bas placed upon national bank circulation, which Is now limited to .M,ijou,uou. ho tbat on the deposit or ibe re qnlaite securities, and otherwise complying with the ptovlslons of the National Banking Isw, these banks may be established where tbey may be needed; and those tbat are not needed will then be obliged to close their busi ness.

A Wonnded Officer and Ills Prisoner. The Rochester Democrat gives the following interesting account of a curious episode or the recent disaster on the Hudson River Railroad: "Detective Jerome Rogers arrived In this city on the 9 10 tialn. Saturday evening. As far as yet ascertained, bis injuries are not ot a serious nature. He says that he had gone to the end of tbe car to get a drink, and was j ust in the aot of returning when he felt the Jolting of the car over the lies. He thought at once It was best, In the event of the cars leaving tbe track, to get as far as possible from the end of the car, and at that moment, feeling the coach tipping over, be clutched the end of a seat, and a few minutes af :erwards found himself wedged lntherulus at the bot tom of the embankment. The prisoner that he bad in custody was the first to coma to his re lief. The prisoner referred to vas one Charles Pelley, a t-oldler who had, under false represen tations, received chromos to the value of $70 from Messrs. 8anderson & Thorn, of this clly, and then left for New York. Dateotlve Rozers was despatched after blm, aud on his return with the prisoner the accident occurred. Mr. Rogers was conveyed to tbe Delavan House In Albany. Pelley continued to exhibit the same generous feeling towards bis custodian that prompted him to remove him from the wrenk at the time ot the dreadful casually. The officer wanted for nothing that the pri soner conld obtain, and tbe sympathetic care displayed by the latter for the foimer In bis misiortpnes was a subjeot of re mark. When the physician arrived to examine the Injuries received by Mr. Rogers, bla cloth ing was removed and deposited in an adjoining room. When they were returned to him hn found that his pocket-book, with about S00, aud a large memorandum book containing $20, and papers of various kinds had been stolen. Bel ley did not show any disposition to go away, although he had every opportunity, until the train arrived in Syracuse, when be quietly left the car and bas not since been seen. Tne pic tures are lu the hands of the police, and they will be re'urned to their owners. It Is thought mat reuey iook tne money out 01 the detec tive's pocket in Albany." REGISTRATION. Tbe Law In New York Explained. TheN. Y. Tribune ot this morning says: The Attorney-General has written his Demo cratic friends in tbls city that "the law does not require a naturalized citizen in any case to present his certificate of naturalization to the Board of Inspectors on offering his vote on election day:" tbat "the right is with the elector to Judge of his own qualifications as a voter," and that, "if he is wining to take the general oath his vote must be received by the Board." Mr. Champlaln thinks that the Board of Regis try bas no legal power to disregard papers that have the slguatureof the clerk and tue seal of the Court. He adds: "If they should assume tbat the papers were spurious in any case and reject them, and refuse to register thejname, tbey would do so at their peril and reader themselves liable, if the person rejected was a legal voter." Now, the plain letter of the law is as follows: "No person shall be placed on such register if he shall be objected to by oue of the Inspectors of Registry and Elections, or by a qualined voter of tbe city within which the eleoiion district Is situated, unless hosbull be known or proved, to tbe satisfaction of such Inspectors, m be at the lime a qualified voter in such election dis trict, nor sballthenameor any person be plaood or retalued on such Register without the con currence ol three or the four Inspectors, nor except In compliance with section seven hereof. No person born out of the United States shall be placed on such Register unless he shall, to the personal knowledge of three of suoh in spectors, bave been duly naturalized, as pro vided in tbe act hereby amended. When the question is raised upon the naturalization of a person, prosf shall be made to the satisfaction of tbe Inspectors, by his own oath or otherwise, tbat the person claiming to be placed on the register is the Identical person named In the certificate he produces. In tbe cities of New York and Brooklyn, the name of no person shall be placed upon tbe said register unless he shall appear In person before tbe said Inspectors and prove to their satisfaction bis right to vole at the next election In the election district In which he claims the rlgbt so to vole."

Messrs N. Peebles and olbers, Committee, etc., Jackiou, N. C Gentlemen: Your letter, Inviting me to address a mass meeting in your town on the HOth Inst, bas been received. I regret tUat I shall not be able to comply. My time Is alrendy disposed of either by professional or political engagements up to the day of election. 1 regret my inability to atlen l with you, all the more because tbe recent elections In the North bave a tendency to disoourage our friends, and cause a relaxation of our effjrta. This greatly needs to beeonuieraoied. I dJ not at all regard tbe election of Seymour and Blair as hopeless, for various reasons Bat even if I did, 1 frankly confess that I have not beeu nghting this campaign under the Impression that our redemption was to beattained turougu the Instrnmeniality ol the National Govern ment Nor have 1 labored for a reform in the General Government. My great aim has been tbe regeneration of North Caro lina, her redemption from the srasD ot ibe hungry vampires who ana her lire's blooa, and drag down her decent peopi tinier tho feet of ignorance and corruption. Alter ail, this can only be done by our own State action. It is In the power or the conserv ative men or the State to work out thoir own salvation, let the North vote as it may. whether Grant be President or Seymour. Kentucky shook otr her shackles in spite of the despotism of tbe national Radloal rule whloh was upon her. Maiylaud did the same, and Georgia Is fast accomplishing the glorious tak. Virginia and Texas would do tbe same to-morrow, it the bayonet was withdrawn from tbelr turoais. 80 H would be, and will be with all or them, for God has not decreed that tbe Ignorant frlo tn and the renegade whites shall rule a nobler aud superior race longer than the application or superior physical force and lis attend ant demoralisation shall maintain this most unnatural position. If they would but shake oil their fear, there Is nothing whatever to prevent the true men of Norm Carolina from carrying tbe next election by 80 000 majority, without a single recruit from the ranks or those who voted for that infamous Constitution last spring, and throwing off every negotiable poli tician In the State with bis congeners. Tnen would begin our redemption. The radical party was formed and sustained here by tne bayonet; it bas gathered Swiss recruits Da gettys in everything except courage and honesty for a term of years, by an impression of strength and power to bestow patronage. Deprived of these supports it will die speedily. It slinks already. It is entirely In onr power, then, to strike down this monstrous concern on the 31 or No vember, by the peaceful means of the ballot, and with 11 goes down the wholesale proscrip tion or intelligence and virtue; armed partlsaa militia, to bully, murder, aud steal; negro domination In all lis shapes; endless and In tolerable taxation and confiscation or land by pauper legislatures; drunken, obscene, and partisan judges; leprous carpet-bag Congress men; railroad rlogs; and a wholesale svstern of corruption suoh aa never before alQtoiei a civilised people I All this we can, If we will, strike down. When you think or it, gentlemen. In Heaven's name, bow can you relax one effort or wllnhold one blow ? Here are Ibe real Issues: here la t ha tmn battlefield or our liberties. And may Uod for give tbe man who flinches, like a poor dastard, now. In the very agony of the struggle. His children will learn to curse his memory, and ha will be regarded by a wiser and braver genera tion as the betrayer of liberty and civil Iz-ulou. v cry trniy yours, Xi. ii. VANCK.
