SPAIN. MADRID, Nov. 11. The Gazette of to-day publishes a decree of the Minister of Justice making extensive reductions in the scale of punishment apportioned to the various classes of crime. The manifesto of the Electoral Committee has received numerous signatures of politicians con- nected with all the three branches of the Liberals. A circular of Senor Zorilla orders the re-opening of the schools closed by certain of the Provincial Juntas and Municipalities. The Municipal elections are fixed for the 1st December. The Impartial of to-day contains a decree, dated the 9th inst., but not yet published in the Gazette, authorising the Rev. George Fitch to erect a Protestant church in Madrid. MADRID, NOV. 13. General Contreras has been appointed Director General of the cavalry. A circular has been issued by Admiral Topete, reminding the sailors of the Royal navy of the necessity that order and discipline should prevail, and expressing confidence in their patriotism. A decree of the Minister of the Colonies, just published, orders the adoption of numerous measures of importance. He decrees that steps shall be taken to facilitate the colonisation of Fernando Po, and to establish a naval station there also that grants of land shall be made in the colonies that every port in the Spanish possessions shall be declared free to the vessels of all nations, and that all anchorage duties shall be abolished for both foreign and Spanish vessels. Special regulations concerning the above decree will shortly be published. The total subscription to the loan amounts to 4,966,800 crowns. It is under- stood that the Government has contracted a loan for X4,000,000 with Messrs. Rothschild, the money to be devoted solely to the payment of the half-yearly interest on the home and foreign debt. MADRID, Nov. 14. General Prim has addressed a circular in response to a request made by nearly all the captains-general for an increase in the provincial garrisons. General Prim declines to aicede to the applications, declaring that the Government reckons upon the support of the enlightened majority of the nation, and that any augmentation would raise the army to a figure far above what the country could bear. The circular announces the concentration of a considerable body of troops in New Castille, which, thanks to the numerous railways and telegraphs, could be instantly dispatched wherever it might be necessary. The subscription to the National Lean amounts to 5,684,000 crowns. The manifesto of the joint electoral committee formed by the fusion of the three fractions of the Liberal party has been published to-day. It confirms all the Liberal measures decreed by the revolutionary Juntas, and proclaims religious freedom, consecrating and guaranteeing for all time the principles of liberty of conscience. The passage relative to the future form of Government says The monarchical form is imposed upon us by the exigencies of the revolution and the necessity of consolidating the liberties we have acquired. Monarchy by Divine right is for ever dead. Our future monarchy in deriving its origin from popular rights will be a consecration of universal suffrage. It will symbolise the national sovereignty and consolidate public liberty, the right of the people being superior to all institutions and powers. This monarchy, surrounded by Democratic institutions, cannot fail to be popular." The manifesto concludes by stating that the Liberals will respect all the laws enacted by the Constituent Cortes. MADRID, Nov. 15. A great and enthusiastic monarchical and democratic meeting, called by those who signed the manifesto of the electoral committee, was held to-day in the court- yard of the palace. Fifty thousand persons assembled. Perfect unanimity and order prevailed, though no police were present, and the demonstration is considered to have been the most imposing affair of the kind ever witnessed in Madrid. Speeches were delivered by Senores Olozaga, Armijo, Martos, and others, and all the speakers adhered, amid great enthusiasm, to the principles enunciated in the recent manifesto. Senor Martos, in the course of his speech, said that the manifesto of the electoral com- mittee was sent yesterday to the provinces by telegraph, and it was everywhere received with the greatest satis- faction. He added, that the reply made by the great industrial town of Barcelona was to subscribe 50 millions of reals-an excellent proof of the impression produced. At the conclusion of the meeting a procession walked through the principal streets, with banners inscribed with Liberal mottoes, and accompanied by bands playing the hymn to liberty. They proceeded to the palace of the President of the Provisional Government. Here Senor Olozaga again spoke, and in reply Marshal Serrano, General Prim, Admiral Topete, and the other Ministers made speeches, in which they dwelt upon the great significance of this manifestation of confidence, and upon the sup- port derived by the Provisional Government from similar demonstrations, which tended to secure the public liberties, founded henceforward on inde- structible bases, and which can never be overthrown by the monarchy which may be established. The crowd loudly cheered the members of the Ministry. A decree has been issued by Admiral Topete, authorising sailors whose time of service has expired to re-enlist for a year in the navy.
