4 (Wore tnts wu none. At two o'clock It wm an. nouaoed that the Republic wm constitnteo, and in the manner here named. Pijruera*. the new Ptm'dent, aroM and briefly accepted the office. The new MtnUHerff passed to their bench amid a scene or renewed cheering, and the Cortes adjourned, Iter having been in session iorty-eight hoars. The .crowd had not perceptibly diminished when the Members passed oat on the Cnlle San Qoronimo, and as one alter another who had been prominent In the rep abllcun movement came into the open air lotui cheers arose, whleli were repeated again and again. Madrid bad little rest that night, and the morning arose upon au excited, agitated, expectaut capital. amadel's tasks ki.ight. The night of labor In the Cortex had been a night ?f anxiety in the palace. The committee from the forte* called a*d read the eloquent address of Caatelar. The King listened and said nothing, and quietly bade adieu to the commit tee. He whs known to be much pleased with the address. His queen was juat over the perils ol maternity?his babe being only a iew days' old. It was a long journey t o the frontier. an* she was still delicate in health, so it wus resolved she should remain at the Italian Legation until completely restored. The King could not go North, as the Carlisu had cut the railroad, nor 10 Barcelona, as it was disturbed. .so he would go to Portugal, where his sister reigned. Hut lie would he in do hurry. He would leure iue palace lor the Italian Legal ion and await his wile's recovery. Hut the Queen was in a nervous mood. Her mind answered the body's condition. She had been unhappy in Spain. Carlota of Mexico aud Marie Antoinette and other depressing memories were ever present, and they came vividly with every answer from the Cortes and the uneasy feclilng in the city. She would go at onee. The King cousen ted. A special tram was arranged to start betore dawn. The morning came and the Queen was ca rrlcd on a stretcher to the carriage and thence to the car. There was little ceremony in this departure. But lew of the members of the Cortes were present?none of the tyluisters. The hour was bo early, and they bad been in session until two In ,the morning. The guard presented anus, the band played the royal hymn, and in the darkness, as yet unbroken by the early dawn, the Kiag drove rapidly to the station. A few ol his conrt were there, some military attaches, and a number of cttlzeus who had been patronised by the Court. The farewells were brief and the train hurried away. In the shadows ceiild be seen the Oiuroh of St. Atocha, looking cold and mournful lu the Winter morning air. lu Its vaults lay Prim, who died to make a king out of this prince who was now dying from the capital of Spain. Prim in bis grave, Amadeus a fugitive, his Queen dccing at the risk < her own llie aud that of her new-horn child?this is all that <-amc of the mounting ambition that fouud a crown at its bidding. When the sun arose Hud it was known the King luitl leit?that he had really fled, and under such peculiar circumstances?the high Castiltau pride of .Madrid was wounded. "Why was he m such a harry," was said, "and the baby only two weeks old 1 It must live, and no one would have harmed a hair of his head." Hut., when even as brave a prince as Amadous had a wile brooding over Marie Antoinette and Carlota of Mexico, can we wonder that k e would be anxious 10 leave the capital of a Spanish republic as speedily as possible* KITKOPK FROWNS ON Til K NEW RRPCRUG. So the now Republic was born amid the happiest auspices. No disturbance, no trouble, not the first sign of a barricade. Peace in every province, every form of law observed. This was no gathering of "gentlemen from the pavement," as Hismarck called Camhetta and his 4th of September arrangement. Not by any means. There had not been a shadow of illegality. The King left the throne of his own accord. No one had forced him?especially no republican. Ills radical Ministry had been supported by the repnblicans. All the great powers of the State iiad united to proclaim the Republic. .Surely never nation came into being with sunnier skies, and the leaders were happy. What would the world lay* That was the question. In an Instant news came that the United States would give It the hand of peace and recognition. This was done, in manner and form as have been written 'to yon. Honors only shown to kiups were paid to the American Minister when he executed the orders of the President, and when Casfelar announced next day that the Great ltcpnblic, discovered by Columbus and founded by Washington, had recoguized Spain and invoked the blessings of the God of Golumbus and Washington upon the friendship of the two countries the < 01 ten arose and gave sheer upon cheer of satisfaction. But no word came from other countries. It was soon felt that the nations of Europe were not lriendly to the new commonwealth. The London papers received it in a wild way. the Tints# even sayuig, when it beard that such men as (Jasielar were in power, that of course this was a pavement gathering and would snly last until a battery of artillery could be brought up. Then came stories about Cinseret and the Communists hurrying nere? gravely printed and discussed in respectable London Journals. The legations were unhappy and critical. Severe fault was round with the American Minister, lie had meddled too much in local politics. His interference in the crisis was undlgniiied and undiplomatic. If Serrano came to power he would be "put, into a first class ear and sent over the irontier. The American recognition was a most unseemly event. What business had She American Minister to keep open house and instruct the new republicans in their duties f it was opposed to all American traditions. Did not Washington say no "interlersnce in foreign afiairs" and no "entangling alliances*" And here was a Minister who was in every republican caucus, who was sn active partisan, and before the King's throne was cold be was fonnd hurrying down to recognize the new government by telegraph By telegraph! Was ever a more unseemlv transaction known in diplomatic history r More than all, the British fleel came into Lisbon. Its business was to see that the Peninsula was quiet; that British Interests were protected. Madrid grew nervous, and In an notir it wan known that the American Minister had sent lor the American fleet to come to Barcelona. The republicans rejoiced; but the diplomatists found cause for offence in this. Here waa more interference. This Yankee Minister not only had republican caucuses at hia honse. and not only recognized the Republic by telegraph, but here he waa bringing n fleet to give it moral etrength. If only one good outbreak would take place, so that these Ministers could cry "Commune t" and terrify calm minds with the spectre of a red democracy, then their course would be easy. But Spain kept profoundly at peace; ana England, which welcomed laiuls i'bilippe when ho name over the blood* barricades, and which hastened to recognize Napoleon when he came red(landed from the massacres of the roup dh'tat, has tood silent, sullen and uairiendly before this Republic, whose buitner, as 1 have said, is "unstained by a single crime, unspotted with a single drop of human blood." CAST ma's qcbtion. "What do these kings want ?" said Castclar, the other day, discussing this coldness of the monarchical representatives towards the new Republic. "What do they want ? Wnat more could they have f What else remains to be done r What other forms are to be accomplished r If this Is not legal what is law r If this is not peaceful what is peace ? We did not oppose the King. We did not put a thorn in his crown. We did not send htm away. We did not ask him to lohve. We obeyed him m bis power. We honored him in his abdication. We said farewell with all grace ana courtesy and kindness. It ia not onr fault that these kings have failed to rule 8pain. It is not onr fault that they have gone Into esile. We did not conspire against Isabella; It was the monarchists. JR e did uot conspire against Amadens: It was the Monarchists. Who wishes disorder in the North' The friends of Don Carlos, a prince.

What more can they want f What more can they have??' It is palninl to hear such questions?te tie unable to answer them. The objection to this Republic is simply because it Is a republic. First in this attitude is England? English Influence here is the strongest enemy of the new Republic?and I aui very sure that if the subtle opinion of England, that noble sentiment Which honors and loves liberty and progress, were to see with true eyes what Is as piaiu as the sun, there would be mischief between Mr. Gladstone and the commons. RUMORS ABOUT TH* AMBR1CAN MINISTER. What la the result T America to-day has a Strength in this peninsula greater, morally, than that ol all the European powers combined. The ill-temper abown towards oor Legation by other (diplomatists and tha slave party indicates this. The reactionary element here does not dissemble its anger. "American influence'' is Umcry of the (lave traders and tkelxJOUU.-J** Uu NEW YO Miuta, qmwii Mcktea vm denounced m am elaborate speech. In a club house a prominent Spaniard oloaed an excited sneeoh by declaring that oar Minuter aaaulrt be taken irom the Legation and dragged through the streets.

"We have nothing against the American Minister personally," said an eminent man the other day; "but if the King had called us to his councils we should have ordered lilni out or the country." To crown all, an explanation is freely git eu to credulous minds that the Americana mean lu kelp in the accession of Portugal; that sick lea, having a Spanish lady for a wife, would assume Spanish citizenship and become a candidate tor the Presidency of the Iberian Republic. A THKKATKNINO CLOUD. These were mitior troubles, however, grave as they were. A mors serious difficulty menaced the new commonwealth. The republicans in the hour of their triumph magnanimously offered the Presidency of the Cortes to Martoa and retained four monarchists in the Cabinet. The Secretary of the Treasury and of War were monarchists. It was found there was no harmony in the union. The nation was dissatisfied, the republicans especially; those who bad labored and hoped and waited and prayed; who had known stripes, and blows, and exile, and imprisonment and contumely; those who had been the apostles of the faith when there were no disciples, and whose nalrs were gray with disappointment and anticipation, became impatient. "Why," they asked, "is Cordova iu the War Office and why keep Kcliegeray in the Treasury? Are there no true republicans in Spain that the army should be under the command of a minister of Amadous' and the Treasury In unsafe hands?" And so the murmurs arose, and it was soon seen that the republlchbh of the nation meant to have no leaders but those who were tried in the faith. T11K KKI'UBLICANH DISHHAKTKNKD. Then, Indeed, it seemed dark to those who wished well for Spain. The cloud came up black aud threatening. All kind ol rumors were in the air. The city which had Been Amadeus go and the Hepublic come without an emotion became nervous. Prudent men sent their families away. One Minister had announced a partv. He cancelled the invitations on account of "the state of affairs." I had occasion to go as far as the Plaza San Domingo witli a Jjondon correspondent. It was about niue in the evening. "You surely are not going out?" said a friend. "Why not?" was the question. "Why, it is not safe l" But we went. Everything was quiet. And as we returned through the quaint, narrow streets no one was seen but the watehmen, carrying lanterns on a pole, mousing along, like Dogberry in Shakspeare. aud sucing that all was well. The night continued electric. We walked to the Cortes. The session was on. There was a oommonplace bill under discussion. But no one listened, for all inlnds were with the Cortes of the two parties who were in consaltation in private chambers. The caJHn were crammed to suffocation. I sat down in a group of persons well known to me. "We shall have flghti iug before morning," said one. "Oh I there will be J no homicides," said another; "to-morrow's the I carnival." "Don't be too sure of that." said a I tmrd, "the worst revolution I ever saw began in ; the carnival." "Bat," I said, "have you any idea I of the arift of sentiment, or what is probable ?" I "Ideal" said one who had been for twenty-five years in Spanish affairs, and was a leading man In , Congress; "there con be no ldoa! Madrid | is a city of surprises. We only live from hour I to hour. This is a crisis, and there Is one remedy?the retirement of the radieals. We do not i want monarchists to nurse the new Republic." ; "But if they don't retire," I said, "lor they have the Cortes with them." "The Cortes belongs to yesterday; this is to-day.

The morning came, and the day showed no brightness. There had been consultations all nlglit. The 1 radicals would not yield. They hud the Cortes. I Why should they have a minority In power who wotdd do them no good? Behind them whs the I Congress and all the elements of reaction; I before them came the rolling wave. Among those who sent their families away in an ostentatious manner was .Serrano. In the meantime the government had taken all precautions. I went to the telegraph otllce to send you a despatch. The office is in one of the corridors of the Interior Department?a large, gloomy, stone building, with cloisters and court yards that might have served for the inquisition. Outside all was quiet enough?a few Idlers staring at a placard, la the courtyard were two companies ol soldiers standing at reHt in double line. There were soli dier.i at every window. Patrols of cavalry rode up ; and down the streets. A company of cavalry anrl reunited the palace of the Cortes. The carnival i Tailed. 1 went to the Prado to see the maskers. [ There were a few who hud come out to disport I themselves and a number of carriages, but although they gamboled and capered It was not In a hearty fashion, and men said the carnival was dead. the panic in madrid. And so all day we waited. I went to the Legation on a matter of business. The Minister was there. During these times he kept the Legation opeu day and night. My bnsiness could wait, and 1 was teld that it had better wail, as In a crisis like this the Minister's attention might be summoned at any time. I went to the certes. The same crowd ofgloomv, muttering men, resolved to have the Republic and no suspected statesman commanding the money and soldiers of .Spain. 1 returned to the hotel Just about Ave, and went out on the balcony that commanded a view of the public square. All of a Hodden a cry was heard. A rush of people came ponrlng down the Alcala?men on horseback riding furiously rrom the Parade; carriages, with ladies driving home in a gallop?men and women, In swift flight going up oue street and down another, a spectacle of the utmost panic, In which thousands swept through the open square like Bheep pursued by wolves. I thought the fighting had begun, and wsnt to an adjoining room to snmmon a cotleague of the Hkrai.o to come, and come swiftly, that we might see the event and note it down. When we returned the panic was over. The square was cleared. There had been a rush and no mere. I looked at my watch and saw that only five minutes had passed. We went Into the street to make Inquiry. We learned that a company of dragooaa came to the Cortes to relieve the ene on guard. Beiorc tbey rode off they drew their sabres and moved along on a trot, ijome timid people near, seeing the sabres drawn, suddenly cried out. "Save yourselves! they are going te charge I" and in a minute the word spread and magnified, and all Madrid was In a panic. This incident took place a half mile from where I saw what 1 have told you, i aud Mends said that one or two miles distant the 1 same scene was witnessed. I mention the fact to I show you bow feverish and electric tbe city was, and bow tbe slightest misadventure might have i turned it Into a citv el mourninflr and death. "How I does it look now ; ' 1 said to one who was carefully | studying the phenomena. "In tiro hours we shall either have civil war or stupid, dull inaction." That evening the radical Ministers resigned, and there was a harmonious republican Cabinet. And the cloud paused away. LIOUT AND LAND AT LAST. 80 ended the third day, and the work was done. The Republic was launched. They were days of labor. The first was when Flgueras compelled the I Cortes to hold permanent sessions. That opened I the battle. The second was when the Republic ; was lormally voted. That was victory. The third was when the monarchists were driven irom the ! Cabinet. That was securing the fruits of the victory. The last day was the darkest and most, dangerous day of all. When it passed and public opinion compelled the surrender of the Cabinet ' men saw that the Kcpublie had its chance of success. A HKKKY DAY IN MADRID. Aud now that the history of this event has been ' told, you may naturally ask, What of the future T Is a republic possible In Spain r la this Republic ' probable t All is bright and clear enough now. I 1 write this on a warm, sunny day?one of those ' days that Winter gives you in Spain. Beneath my i window are voices of merry men and women? , music and singing and load, cheerful clatter. This ; , is the season of foliv and indulgence of soak There, , . winding around ths fountains in the open square, stroll a band or students, decked in gaudy costumes , of red and green, with taaeelied caps braided witn sliver. They are playing gnitars, and ao they go they crave largesse for the poor, and will fling you their caps to the uppermost balcony with unerring aim. 1 What sweet, winuing music It is 1 just the air lor the summer night under my lady's chamber win- : dow; and how uertly theytonsh tne strings as they , merrily caper along! And now come a group of lads and maidens 01 the poorer close, who form a circle aud dance a serious, slow measnre, with castanets and much winding in and ont. to the music 1 or a violin played by one whflse ince is darkened 1 with charcoal. Another group is dancing i around an open barouche in whicn there [ are two maaks?one as the Ace of Diamonds, the other Mephistopneies. And ' carriages roll along to the musical concert, and . crowds make their way, overflowing the sidewalks j ami running in the streets, eager for the bull light, j To-day there will be a special bull fight, six bulls to be slain; to-night a famous masked ban. Don't you see bow merry we are, bow light-hearted, how resolute in our pleaaures, and how glad to take advantage ol this shining sunt "The people are restive,"said a minister to Napoleon. "Put a new soat of gilding on the dome of the Invalldes. That will keep Paris amused for a month." And after the stress of this exacting week we have the hull tight for Sunday's recreation, which was certainty a wise move on the part of tue government. WHAT OK TUB KITL'HK ? Truly we are cheerful enough, let the future be as it may. And when 1 came to discuss the question which naturally arises st the edge of so long a narrative, so much remains to be said?so many questions to be considered?that I must give it another letter. This in concluding, however. These men of Spain have done a noble work. They nave done It well. Nor Is it a spasmodic effort. The Republic comes as naturally, as inevitably, and by the operation of those wise, bidden, enerrlng laws which govern States as well as men ana flowers and trees, as the flower follows the bud and the fruit the flower.

March 23, 1870.1 The week has t>een a dull one In Wall street, much to the disappointment of the brokers, who have been rauaacking their memory for a parallel case of inactivity at this season or the year. Id explanation we have, first, the protracted scarcity of money; and, second, the occupation of business men with their legitimate concerns. It if just the season when merchants are engaged to the extent of all their time, and speculation is a luxury which requires leisure for Its Indulgence. Whatever may be the inference?and the matter is oapable both of intelligent defence and of censorious condemnation? the ranks of the Wall street spectators are re cnilted more and more every year lrom tux CLASS KM. It would startle many a staid, old-fashioned mcr chant to learn how many of onr merchants make ventures in wall street nowadays. They are noi there all the time, be It understood; they devoti themselves during their busy season to their own business with slavish energy and perseverance. But In the months of dulncss?the "off" seasons oi trade, so to speak?they scan the stock list, read the money article, and make ventures here and there in amounts varying from the conventional one hundred shares tip to a thousand or Beveral thousand shares. It Is the absence of this element Just now which contributes not a little to the * DULNK8M OF TUB STOCK MAKKKT. It Is evident that a similar explanation will account for the lack of interest on the part of the great mass of out-of-town operators. When money is so scarce and tUe interest account tends to cat up the profits of a venture the outsiders are loth to come in. Again, money has been and Is worth so much all over the country this Winter and Spring that rich men prefer the certainty of the high return of Interest to the chances of Wall street. It is only when capital Is a drug at two or three per cent for its use on call that It is tempted Into stock operations. Hence It Is that wc find a "plentiful lack" of the "out-of-town orders," which have usually burdened the telegraph wires and mails at this seasou in previous yours. It Is not Impossible that TOE SPRING RISE may yet prove a reality and a successful eventuality to the patient "bulla" of Wall street. As we already know, the movements of trade and money are all a month to two months behindhand. The merchants are beginning only now to experience the activity In trade which should be at its height. A few weeks hence Wall street may have Its turn. It seems more likely, however, that the fever ol speculation will be deterred until nearer the summet? As may be fancied from these comments upon the stock market, the fluctuations ol the week have been of Important extent outside of two or three specialties. In general terms the market was weak, and prices declined np to #bout Thurs day, when TltK CURBS NT. CHANGED and the lost ground was nearly regained by Saturday night. About the widest fluctuation was in Harlem, which, after an advance to 139)4, on the impression that the capital would be increased and the road leased at 8 per cent to the New York Central, fell back to 130 on the discovery that the road would be leased at its present capital only, but would rctaiu independent control of the horsecar lines in Fourth and Madison avenues?an elastic source of revenue?which, by judicious management, ought to add enough to the rental guaranteed by the New York Central to make the road pay its stockholders not less than 10 a 12 pet cent. At the close on Saturday a report prevailed that THE PANAMA DIRECTORS contemplaied doubling the capital by the award ol a scrip dividend to present stockholders, and expected to pay 8 per cent dividends in lutnre on the enlarged capital. The course of the stock, however, had been at variance with this idea, as its price declined during the week from 122 to 112? in fact, to 109)4 * dividend. In the gold market the premium recovered to 15\ on the lighter ex. ports and the heavier imports of the week, the movement being assisted by the action of the Treasury in issuing about two millions of the socalled reserve of greenbacks. Money loaned at MO and interest and down to 3 a 4 per cent, the relaxation being quite encouraging on the last two days of the week. LATRST PRICES OP GOVERNMENTS.
