THE FORErGN NEWS p. ,Warisso unmitigatedan evil, under most circumstances, that whoever prevents it should be counted among the benefactors of humanity. The pacific interference of France aud England has induced Spain to leave its dispute with Mexico to the arbitration of these two Powers. In point of fact, neither Spain nor Mexico is prepared for war. Spain is in a very perilous and distracted condition at present. Disaffection and discontent prevail in almost every province, and martial law, most rigidly administered, rules throughout Spain. This system of Terrorism is useless, as well as frightful, for it only goads the people into better organization and more resolute opposition, in the end. The situation of Napoleon seems to bo becoming dangerous. On his single life would appear now to rest tlio fortunes of France. Should ho toll, tliat splendid droam called "The Empire," whichhehas revived, would speedily topple over. Therecent detected conspiracies against his life an...
