We are happy to perceive that M. Reuter's monopoly is

at last menaced with overthrow. A limited company has at last been started, which professes to sell bulletins of public news upon the plan which he first made popular, and some of its telegrams from America have been published. They are not good telegrams at all, the Company's agents being apparently very verbose "Copper- heads," but any opposition is a great boon to the public. No single man, however able or enterprising, ought to be entrusted with the power of reporting the daily history of the world, and on occasion we have found M. Reuter's intelligence decidedly unfair. His agents have never been impartial on the American contest, while the intelligence they collect in Germany, Spain, and Russia is of the least instructive kind. All that might be remedied, but the evil of monopoly is permanent.
