The Spaniards alarmed.

--John Mitchell writes to the Charleston Mercury, from Paris, that the Spaniards begin to take alarm from their fears of the designs of the Southern Confederacy.

The Epoca, a Madrid paper, calls for additional reinforcements of Spanish troops to be sent to Cuba, and "earnestly warns its government that the danger — which was remote, contingent and visionary while two separate nations and two incompatible systems of society were neutralizing one another in the American Union--becomes imminent, now that each is shaking itself loose of the other, and preparing to go its own way."
