PARIS, Sept. 24.?A dfspatrh to the Temps from Madrid ways: "The attitude of the United States haa caused a great sensation at Madrid, because opinion has been lured on by thu optimist communication of the Spanish minister at Washington upon the character and duration of th? correct attitude of the United Stated government; ana, that, too despite several warning# from Mr. Olney and Mr. Cleveland's message. The official bulletins of Captain General Weyler also have received too much confidence when the United Btatee government was every month receiving from Its consuls and special envoys totally different news. "The general Impression nt Han Sebastian and Madrid Is that the Spanish government will try to draff negotiations along unless It rejects purely and trimply the good offices of the United States on the ground of public opinion and upon the further ground that the opposition would not permit It to tolerate foreign intervention even though amicable."

He said: "I cannot, of course, pledge in advance the government of the United States, but so far as the present Ik concerned, such a step Is not In contemplation.
